Pals Paper Arts 236

A late happy Saturday to you! I don’t know why but I just can’t seem to get up on the weekends anymore! I guess the bed was little too comfy with all of the blankets! So yesterday was a nice sunny but chilly day again. I got a lot done at work and then came home and Andrew stopped by for a bit. He’s out in the Hamptons this weekend for the Satellite Lane retreat. They rehearse and get ready for Harmony Sweeps all weekend. A little chilly for the Hamptons but maybe that help them concentrate! I went out to dinner to Friday’s with Anthony and Bill, that’s always a good time! Tonight I have a work Holiday party to go to so Danielle is going to come by here so we can go together. I’m off to Scrap-A-Latte in a bit to help Renee get ready for some classes, that will be fun! What are you up to this weekend?

As promised here is another video from the concert. This is the opening and the song is called Life Support…

My card for today is for this weeks Pals Paper Arts sketch…

PPA 236

I got my Paper Pumpkin Kit in the mail yesterday and love the stamps that came in it so I used one of them on today’s Valentine’s card. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper stack that I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Whisper White Cotton Ribbon around the back before adhering it to the base. For my greeting I used the You Plus Me Stamp Set and heat embossed it in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Real Red. I used an element from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut it out. The heart on the top right is the one from the Paper Pumpkin Kit and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the banner and heart to the card. I drew a few lines down from the tag and used another one of the elements from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut out three hearts from Red Glimmer Paper, they are also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I sprinkled some sequins in the upper right and adhered them with Crystal Effects. I love the way the heart looks “clipped” to the side of the banner! A fun simple Valentine for your love! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge and the opening video from the concert! Thanks very much for coming by and enjoy your Saturday my friends! 🙂

  1. Oh Justin:

    This card made my heart go pitter patter! Those tiny sparkling hearts hanging by their “strings” against the striped diagonal background paper made me sigh! I know, I’m such a romantic! AND I have never seen a heart split around a sentiment, especially one embossed on vellum. I just absolutely fell in love with this card at first sight! Sigh, sigh, sigh! What a fab way to start a Saturday, especially since my heart needed warming since it’s only 4 below zero outside my window. Now – going for some hot cocoa to warm the rest of the body. LOL Hugs my friend, fantastic card for sure! 🙂

    1. Hello my Grace!
      Thank you so much!! I like the simplicity of the card and the heart “clip” was fun! I am so happy that I got to warm you heart on a cold day! It’s chilly here too! Enjoy your hot cocoa! I am on coffee number 5!! Off to Scrap-A-Latte with Taylor. Have a great day and stay warm my friend!! XO 🙂

  2. Hi Justin- I love the hanging hearts and the clipped heart is pretty cool!
    The opening to the video is pretty dramatic- was that the opening to his concert? Great video!
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Hello Marty!
      Thank you! I thought that the “clip” was a neat way to use the stamp! Yes, that was the opening to Sam’s concert! I thought it was a great song to open with! In hope that you are enjoying your weekend! Mine is pretty good so far! 🙂

  3. Loved the video but love your card more. I’m excited about trying a heart “clip” on vellum. The three little hearts off center are neat. Another one of your simple but elegant cards. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thank you HJ! I had fun making the card and am happy that you enjoyed it! Glad that you like the video too! Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

    1. Thank you Charlene! I stamped the heart in Versa-Mark on Vellum, heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then cut it out with my Paper Snips. Simple but fun! 🙂

  6. Really cute card, I’m jealous, my paper pumkin has not arrived yet. I did see the video from SU and I cant wait fior it to arrive.

    We had a heat wave today, 41 degrees, It felt so good to be outside. My daughter had an iceskating competition, that took up most of the day, but I really love watching her skate and her team took 1st. well worth it.

    1. Thanks Linda! LOL! I was quite happy that mine arrived, I had just seen what was in it on a post on Instagram! Wow 41 degrees! I’m jealous! Congrats to your daughter! I love ice skating, that’s what mu mum wanted me to do when I was younger, I could just never get the stopping down! 🙂
