Pals Paper Arts 265

A super happy Friday to you! Yes, I’m off from work until September 21st! Michael stopped by the office yesterday and said goodbye to everyone and then I did the same. I did manage to get out of work at 2:00 and I came home and made a few cards and then went to Smashburger for dinner with Michael and Taylor. We stopped off and got some dessert on the way home and then I helped Michael with some pictures on his computer. I still can’t believe that he is going home tomorrow. This afternoon I’m going to take a ride into Manhattan with Brian to pick up his passport, don’t ask, LOL! We are also going to stop by Kim’s and get a couch that she’s giving me and then take my couch over to Heather. Tonight Michael is going to stay by me and then tomorrow night I will take him to JFK. Bummer.

One of the cards that I made yesterday is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

A super simple sketch and I got my Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit yesterday so I had to play with it! The base of today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock with a piece of Basic Black covering the front. For the background I used a piece of paper from the PInkFresh Studios Happy Things 6×6 Paper Pad. The main panel is a piece of Solar White 80lb backed with some more Basic Black. The images are from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Teal, Teeny Bikini and Duckling Ink. The outlines are stamped in Smoke and the strings and bows in Memento Tuxedo Black. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed on a piece of Basic Gray in White Hero Arts Embossing Powder. I adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL, tucking the greeting underneath. To balance the card I adhered some Pretty Pink Posh Spring Mix, Hazel & Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Essentials by Ellen Iridescent Gray and Matte Black Sequins with some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium on the right side of the panel. I love all of the goodies that you get in this month’s kit especially the fun stamp set! I really hope that you enjoy today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thank you for visiting me today and I wish you a fantastic Friday! 🙂

  1. Love the balloons. They look transparent, like a balloon would/could be. Very crisp images, especially the bow and string. I like the sequins too. They are very light and airy.
    I’m sorry about Michael going back. It is an sad adjustment.

    1. Thank you Nancy! The stamp set is so cool and I used a little less ink so that they would look transparent! I’m having so much fun playing with all of the goodies that I have! Love me some sequins! Yes, I am really going to miss Michael! Hopefully he will be back soon! 🙂

  2. Fun card..looks more grown up then kiddie which I like! Love the bling too…thanks for joining the Pals sketch challenge this week! Miss you! Hugs!

  3. Happy, Happy, Happy card today Justin! I guess it is a day for you to celebrate. 3 weeks off, a trip to London, time to play. Yeah! Love the colors and the little bows are perfect. I hope you made this one for yourself. LOL

    Fabulous weather here today. No humidity, sunshine, nice breeze – great day to just sit on the porch with a good book and I’m taking advantage of it. I have the stuff lined up and the idea in my head for some anniversary cards I have to make but that can wait until tonight when it’s dark out. I’m so excited for you about this trip. I know I can travel to London vicariously through you and I’m probably close to as excited as you are. Love & Hugs to you my friend and wishing Michael a safe journey back to Brasil! XO 🙂

  7. Very festive and cute card, Justin! This celebration card makes me think of party dresses and tuxes. A perfect prelude to your upcoming London trip!
