Pals Paper Arts 184 & Sneak Peek

Well, it was a beautiful day here yesterday! It was so nice that I even had the top down in the car for a while! I had a fun relaxing day. I had breakfast with Andrew and then we went to the mall. We met Heather at BJ’s and the went to Friday’s for lunch and I ended up back at Friday’s for dinner with Maureen! I even squeezed in some crafting time! It was a really nice day! 🙂

Thanks so much to Diane for choosing my card last week for pick! You can see my original post here and the Pals Paper Arts post here. My card for today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. This week we have an interesting sketch from Margaret Moody…

PPA 184

I wanted a overly blingy card and that’s just what I got! My card base is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. For my background I used a piece of Basic Black that I embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is the bling! I cut strips of Silver and Champagne Glimmer Paper and adhered them to a piece of Crumb Cake (not sure why Crumb Cake… LOL!). After I had them all adhered I trimmed off the excess and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Perfect Couple Stamp Set* and the words are heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The mustache, stamped in Basic Black, and the lips, stamped in Real Red are cut out with my Paper Snips and coated in Crystal Effects to give it some shine. The greeting is cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies and adhered to the panel of Real Red, embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with a piece of Basic Black. My heart is cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits from a piece of Red Glimmer Paper and backed with another heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits. I love the mustache and lips coated with the Crystal Effects, I haven’t used it such a long time! Thanks so much for checking in with me today to see my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I hope that you all have a fun Sunday!

  1. Oh my gosh! This card really brought a smile to my face! Adorable, can’t even begin to describe it. Too stinking cute! Awesome! LOVE it! You’re ideas just go way over the top. Have a wonderful Sunday, there calling for even warmer weather. 🙂

  2. Hi Justin! Love this card! The crystal effects really makes the mustache and lips pop. You do a great job on paper snipping too! Can you send some warmth my way?? 😉 It’s snowing right now and we could see between 8 and 10 inches before it’s done today with more coming on Christmas day. It’s a cookie-baking and card-making day for me! Enjoy your Sunday!

    1. Thanks Karen! Yes, it definitely needed the Crystal Effects! I would love to send some warmth your way! I don’t envy you with all that snow! I hope that you have a nice baking/crafting day though! 🙂

  3. Absolutely love, love, love this card Justin. I have Crystal Effects but had completely forgot about it. The colors are fantastic and I am totally crazy about the glimmer papers. So glad you showed the second photo as the first one didn’t show off the Stylish Stripes embossing. Sometimes taking photos with detail can be pretty tricky.

    Sounds like yesterday was a fabulous day for you. Yeah. Today we are having an ice storm. It’s a beautiful crystalized world out there but treacherous as well. Hoping we don’t lose our electricity but if we do we are prepared. Enjoy your Sunday, I hope it’s still warm in Long Island.

    1. Thanks Grace! I always forget about Crystal Effects too! Yes, the photos can be tricky but when you do get it right it makes all the difference! I did have a very nice day yesterday! I hope you are weathering your storm. It’s still warm and I’m loving it! Have a great day! 🙂

  4. I smiled when I saw this stamp set in the catalog, but you brought it to life with snips and Crystal Effects. Gotta love that stuff…it even glues my vanity chair leg together! Enjoy the rest of the day! Relax…NB
