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! 🙂
