Pals Paper Arts 196

The weekend is better when it starts a day earlier! I had a nice day yesterday, I did manage to get all of the stuff done that I wanted to. I even got to have lunch with my friend Kim and that was nice. Heather and I went to dinner last night to celebrate a friends birthday with a bunch of people. We had a great time, there was even some fire pit afterwards! Tonight Andrew’s group Satellite Lane is competing in the Regional Harmony Sweeps in Manhattan, that should be fun! Wish them luck!

For today I have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. This week we have a sketch from Margaret Moody…

PPA 196

As you all know I have been having lots of fun playing with my E-Cutter. Mainly I have used it to cut out greetings but today I tried something a little different. My card starts off with a base of Real Red Card Stock. My background is a piece of paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, adhered over to the left to go with the sketch. For my greeting I choose a stamp from the Everyday Occasions Card Kit and stamped it in Coastal Cabana on Whisper White and backed it with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar. That large triangle is from the Geometrical Stamp Brush Set and is resized and cut out with my E-Cutter. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals pieces adhere it to the card. It really is quite cool what detailed and crisp cuts you can get using a Stamp Brush Set and the E-Cutter. I love the way the triangle looks over the DSP! I hope that my foray into using my E-Cutter inspires you to give it a try and that you enjoyed today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. Thanks so much for visiting me today, have a super Saturday! 🙂

  1. Love reading your blog each morning. Sorry winter is lasting so long there. We need more rain in Southern California. You have referred to E-cutter. What is that? Does Stampin Up sell it?

    1. Thank you very much Marianne! I’m happy to have to have you stop by! Yes, we are definitely ready for Spring here in NY! I use a Silhouette Portrait, around $100 on amazon. It’s an electronic cutter that cuts out SVG files. 🙂

    1. I use a Silhouette Portrait Jayne. I choose it because it was relatively inexpensive and I don’t need a 12 x 12 cutter. The software is also very good and allows you to use files from anywhere. Hope that helps! 🙂

  2. WOW Justin – that is a unique take on the challenge for sure. That digital cutter is something special all right. You used my absolute favorite from the Fresh Prints stack and I really am amazed at what the cutter will do. I love a card with dimension for sure.

    Are you going to go see Andrew sing tonight? Wish him luck from all of us. Wish I could be there for the competition, I bet it will be awesome! Will they be singing Geeky Girl?

    1. Thank you Grace! The E-Cutter is so much fun! I too love that print from the pack, but I like all of them! The cut file gives it a little dimension and brake up the pattern nicely.
      I will be there to see them sing. I will let him know. I don’t think that Geeky Girl is on the list, they only get to sing three songs and they have two new ones! 🙂

  3. Striking card! The raised cut-out triangles really “elevates” the design!! LOL Still love those colors and paper stack. Best of luck to Andrew and Satellite Lane in the competition!! They have a great sound!

    1. Thank you Beth! Yes, it does “elevate” the design! LOL! Fresh Prints is definitely a favorite! I will tell Andrew! Have a great day! 🙂

  4. How fresh, exciting and intriguing! I don’t know the proper name of those pictures that have a hidden picture incorporated in them. Where you stare at them and then the image appears at of nowhere. That’s what your card reminds me of. With the cut of triangles floating on top of the fresh prints triangles, I’m just waiting for something to appear. Justine, you have out done yourself. I think this is absolutely great! To Satellite Lane, break a leg (in a good way of course) in the sweeps tonight. Have fun.

    1. Thank you Lisa! I guess you are right! I don’t know what they are called either but I see what you mean! 🙂
      I’ll tell Andrew! It will be a good time! 🙂

  5. Best of Luck to Andrew and Satellite Lane! I am sure their talents will sing for themselves.
    Branching out to digital? I really like the triangles, but I am far from going MDS. I don’t like digital reading either. I love the feel of the paper in my hands and fingers, but I do appreciate what you and others do. Have a continuing great weekend! Nancy B
    P. S. The steaks were tender and delicious again — NY strip. The invitation is always open.

    1. Yes Nancy, I’m sure that you are right!
      Yes, I needed to get on the bandwagon. Digital is everywhere. I got into card making because it had nothing to do with computers and here we are! I will admit I do prefer and e-book, less to carry! I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      Don’t be surprised one day when I show up! LOL! 🙂

  6. Hi Justin! What a cool card! Love that e-cutter…I seriously need to look into that! How fun for Andrew…good luck to him, we’ll all be there with him in spirit. Enjoy your Saturday or does it seem like a Sunday to you?? LOL!

    1. Hello Karen!
      Thanks! Me too! They are pretty reasonable now, Portrait is the one I have and it’s down to $119. I will tell Andrew! It does seem like Sunday but I will be happy when I wake up tomorrow and realize that I have no work! 🙂

  7. Fun card! The e-cut design is very cool! I don’t own an e-cutter but it looks like fun.

    Good luck to Andrew and Satellite Lane!

  8. Hey Justin,
    Excellent, fabulous, awesome looking card! I just ordered the fresh print stack. I can’t wait to get the paper, saw so many neat cards on Pinterest using this paper. As always your talent “shines” again! Your amazing!
    Best regards to Andrew and his team. Have a fun, fantastic evening!
    Behave yourself tonight and stay safe! XO 🙂 Donna

    1. Hello Donna!
      Thank you so much! The Fresh Prints Stack is great isn’t it?! You are pretty amazing yourself you know?! Satellite Lane did great! Awesome show as always! I had a great time and I behaved! 🙂

  9. What a awesome card! Justin, you diffidently have a keen eye for DETAIL. What a gift you have! Best of Luck, to your Buddy!

  10. Justin, I invested in a silhouette cameo and have only dabbled by cutting phrases. This inspires me to get better at this amazing tool. Love your design!
