Celebrate the 200th PPA!
Hello there! Today is a very special day, the Pals Paper Arts are celebrating the 200th post. As a special treat for you, both design teams are playing along. That's right all 20 of us are providing you with some great cards to look at, and guess what? One lucky participant will receive all 20 cards! Wow! Take a look at the sketch, and grab your provisions, create something fun and head on over to the PALS to link it up!
We each were allowed to choose our color that we wanted to use for our monochromatic card. I chose Bermuda bay because I thought it would be easy to work with, and it is one of my favorite new colors. However, when I was crafting my card, I had not a single piece of DSP, so I made my own using a stamp in the March Paper Pumpkin kit. It is a single line of chevrons that is a photopolymer stamp, so it is super easy to line up. This background was my first and only try, it really is easy.
Dalmatian spots? That is my favorite expression for these random dots. The decorative dots embossing folder will be available in the new catalog.
I love the new starburst framelits and matching Starburst Sayings stamp set. Matted offset on a circle that was embossed, and dressed up with ribbon and a vintage faceted button, it makes a pretty sentiment.
So, are you excited to be the lucky recipient of all of the design team's cards? All you have to do is participate and you could be the lucky winner! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
