A good Sunday morning to you all. How did everyone fare in yesterday’s heat? I went out for a little while and felt like my skin was melting but most of the day I spent inside crafting in the A/C. I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to but I had a few creative bursts. My post is a little late this morning because I went for an 11 mile bike ride with the wonderful Stamp with Sandy. It may have been a little ambitious for my first time out this year but I actually feel pretty good! Thanks Sandy!
Today’s post is for the bi monthly Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This time we have a color challenge…
The nice fall colors did help make me feel a little cooler yesterday! I have another sneak peek for you today from the 2012 Holiday Catalog that you will be able to order from starting August 1st. The base of my card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock and I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler on top of the front. The Early Espresso is embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I adhered a piece of Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon to the bottom with some Sticky Strip on the back before I adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler piece with SNAIL. All of the stamped images including the greeting are from the new Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set* in the Holiday Catalog. I stamped the jar in Early Espresso and the lid in Daffodil Delight. The apples are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and the leaves are stamped in Gumball Green. The flowers are also stamped in Daffodil Delight and all of the images are cut out with the Cannery Framelits Dies* also new in the Holiday Catalog. I love when stamps have matching Framelits, it makes cutting them out so easy and the stamp set and the Framelits are available as a bundle for a 10% savings! I tied a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine around the lid before I attached it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Everything else is also attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals except for the jar which is adhered with SNAIL. The greeting and the piece of Cherry Cobbler behind it are cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. I added two Brights Collection 3/8″ Brads to the centers of the flowers for a little added detail. I love the new Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set* and Cannery Framelits Dies*! I can’t wait to see what else I can put in a jar! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge and the sneak peek from the 2012 Holiday Catalog. Thank you very much for taking some time out of your day to visit and stay cool and enjoy!
