Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you came through the July 4th Holiday unscathed! It was literally like a war zone in my area. I understand the pretty fireworks but just the ones that sound like bombs going off are a little pointless don’t you think? I am going to attempt to take Winston to work with me today. He had a bad night last night and he needs some extra love today.
On a fun note a fellow demonstrator in Canada has a feature on her blog that she calls My Crafty Friends Mondays and she has included one of my cards and a few from other demos. You can take a look at her post here. Thank you Josée!
Today I have my post for this week’s Pals Paper Arts, yes they are back to a weekly challenge over at Pals! First I want to thank the amazing Mary Fish for choosing my card in the last challenge. You can see my original post here and the Pals post here. This week we have a color challenge that is just in time for the 4th…
Even though it’s the day after I went with a patriotic theme for my card. The base is Pacific Point Card Stock. I took a piece of Crumb Cake and used the new Chevron Border Punch to punch the left edge. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the base. A piece of Real Red is reverse flagged and I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the circle towards the top. The star is from the Simply Stars Stamp Set and is stamped in Pacific Point. I happened to come across a “Vinatge” Star Punch and it punches out the star perfectly! A piece of Silver Glimmer Paper is cut in a strip across the top and three stars are punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack (that is a carryover from the 2012 Holiday Catalog). The greeting is from the Happy Hour Stamp Set and is punched out with the Large Oval Punch. I’m seriously loving the new Chevron Border Punch and can’t wait to use the punched pieces on a card! Thank you very much for coming by to see my Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s color challenge. I hope you have a fantastic Friday!
