Pals Paper Arts: Beer Party

Pals Paper Arts

Well what do you know, I’m the guest creator today for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge and I thought I’d share my favorite (so far) Mixed Drinks stamp set paired with the Festive Birthday designer series paper.  What does this spunky DSP have to do with beer?  Well, if you’re Mexican you know that at every children’s party we (the adults) drink beer. LOL…true story, you just can’t make this stuff up.

It’d be an honor to see your sketches this week for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.

The Details:

  • Corona or Budlight?  You can make the beer any type you want.  Mine was stamped with So Saffron because I wanted it to be light-colored like a Corona.  It’s the reason I also stamped the lemon slice.  Didn’t you know that Corona is even more refreshing with a slice of lemon?  For added flavor squeeze the lemon into the beer and you’ll get a nice refreshing surprise. LOL
  • A Whole New Meaning.  Step aside, “It’s five o’clock somewhere.” In my home it’s about every hour being a happy one!  That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Stamp Ink Paper: Black & White

IMG_0830

This card has absolutely no stamping on it anywhere.  It was created with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits dies and if you didn’t order it when it first came out then you’re going to have to wait a little while longer to get your hands on it.  Why? Because it’s so popular it’s on backorder until tomorrow and even then there may be less than 800 left.  Think they may have enough…I’d think again (LOL).

Stamp Ink Paper #57

Black & white is always beautiful no matter what you make with it and today on the Stamp Ink Paper challenge we’d love to see what you make with two very basic colors.  Go on, check it out here.

Stamp Ink Paper

The Details:

  • A Little Foam.  I cut out a little fun foam with the flower to give it a little dimension.  I didn’t care for the flatness on the card.  It’s white foam and it worked out perfectly on a black & white challenge.  I added a little bow with some Whisper White Baker’s twine because the stem looked so lonely.
  • An Error No More. What exactly does that mean? Well, you see the black strip of black cardstock across the top of the card?  That wasn’t a part of the original design, but I had the card upside down (yes that can happen) when I glued it on and I didn’t want to ruin it by peeling it off, so I just left it as is.

Pals Blog Hop: “It’s A Pattern Party”

2016badge-watermelon

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Celebrate You

Each year Stampin’ Up! out-does itself and makes the best designer series paper I’ve ever seen and used.  There isn’t one set I love less or the most for that matter.  However, for this hop I was drawn to Blooms & Bliss DSP.  It’s a soft yet bold pattern with all the flowers and matching colors.

Celebrate You

The Details:

  • Borders Make All Cards Standout.  It took me a while to get it, but I think I’m figuring it out…adding a very thin border to a card will enhance and make the designer series paper the entire focal point.  Who cares about focal points though!? I hear/read that often and you know what? It doesn’t matter, but it helps right? (LOL)
  • Embellish a Small Flower.  Although tiny flower look cute on their own, I really believe that by adding just a tiny embellishment to the center it just makes it twice as pretty.
  • Doesn’t always Have to Be Black Ink. I don’t always choose to stamp the sentiment with black ink sometimes I want it to match the darkest color on the designer series paper, hence the reason why Stampin’ Up! takes the guess-work out the need to coordinate colors yourself.  They’re the best and do it for you.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
