Are you feeling blue? Does the post-holiday period have you singing the blues? Or are there blue skies smilin' at you? Then you need to join the Pals at Pals Paper Arts in this week's Color Challenge PPA126: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla! As for me, there is nothing like a Cup of Thanks to start the New Year off right! Enjoy!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Bling and BlueThe finished card measures 4-1/4" wide x 5-1/2" long.
- Razzle Dazzle! Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter adds a touch of bling to the pretty pansies decorating the Tea Cup from the Tea Shoppe set. I used a little Tombow Adhesive, which I painted on with a paintbrush, and then I sprinkled on the glitter, knocking off the excess.
- Texture! After randomly stamping the Very Vanilla panel, it was zipped through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A Blender Pen, with Not Quite Navy and Always Artichoke inks, was used to add a needed spot of color!
- Snip a sentiment! After stamping a sentiment, add interest by snipping a "V" in one end...creating a banner effect!
- Lots of Layers! The Dotted Oval pattern from the new Twitterpated Designer Series Paper coordinates perfectly with Baja Breeze Stripes and Not Quite Navy Dots from the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks! Coordination...that's the beauty of Stampin' Up!
