This morning I got the chance to play along with the current Pal Paper Arts Challenge #192 – Sketch. Each week the Pal Paper Arts team creates fabulous samples and invites their readers to join in. I know I am a bit late to this weeks challenge, but I still had enough time to sneak in a sample! Below is the sketch that was issued for the current challenge.
For my project I used one of the fabulous stamps for the Sale-A-Bration promotion, See Ya Later! I just got this stamp set with my last order and every time I look at it I just have to smile. This sentiment is my favorite, I can just imagine the look on someone’s face if they were to open this card. I used the Banner Framelit Dies to cut out this piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper for my banner behind the sentiment. I know I didn’t do too much with this card, but it just seemed to be done as is. A simple and sweet birthday card.
Thank you for joining me today for my creation, I hope you will stop by tomorrow! Have a fabulous day!
If your are on Facebook you see people post old pictures of them on Thursday’s for a ‘Throwback Thursday’. I have never really been into that, but when I was thinking of ways to share my creations I thought that maybe I should pull out my OLD Stampin’ Up! creations and share them with you. By now almost all of these products are retired, so you won’t be able to purchase these products, but I think you will enjoy them all the same.
Today’s selection is a card I created and uploaded to Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) on July 15th, 2005. It features Fishy Friends (which I still own) and Vogue Verses plus a fun technique called Shaving Cream! Does the yellow seem a bit different, well that’s because it features Yo Yo Yellow which is now retired. I also used Blender Pens (still available!), Dimensionals (a must have!), Tempting Turquoise (still a favorite), and Basic Black. The fun part about looking back on old projects is that you can still use the same techniques. Please let me know if you would like to try out the shaving cream technique, it’s a lot of fun!
Have you heard?! Stampin’ Up! has added NEW Clearance Items to the Clearance Rack! Among the amazing goodies that you can now get are some of my favorites! This time they added some colors of the 3/8 Inch Ruffled Ribbon. I was sure to add them to my order yesterday so I didn’t miss out on their luscious ribbons. There is still some available in the store, and I suggest if you see something you want place an order right away. The last time I looked there were about 10 items that are already gone so don’t miss out!
