Welcome to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Tuesday style! This post is coming to you from the road. Yes, being retired has it’s perks and I’ve been out of the country for the last four days. What in the world would we do without WiFi?
Sometimes, it’s not difficult to create a card for a sketch challenge, but it sure is difficult to choose which set you’re going to use. Close your eyes and just pick one! That’s exactly what I did and I couldn’t be happier because it’s already one of my favorites.
Stamp it. Seriously!, that’s how easy it was to come up with this technique (LOL). It’s what I love about layouts.
Where to place the sequin!? I think this was the most difficult decision I had to make for this card. Wherever you decide to place your sequin, just remember don’t adhere them down to the carsick until you know for sure where they belong. Embellishments should add a balance to the card. But in reality, does it matter? LOL, probably not, just don’t place them on the very edge of the card. You’ll feel off kilter.

Happy Thursday and welcome to another edition of Pals Paper Arts, a sketch by Dawn Tidd. She gave us a sketch that truly challenged my imagination and I love it! It’s one of the main reasons I have such a love for card-making. There’s no right or wrong way of putting it together and it’s a direct reflection of our heart.
It’s been a little over a year since joining the Pals Paper Arts and I have loved every minute of it. Being a member of the team makes me feel like I’m amongst the stars. I wish for you to join us this week and shoot for the stars at Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.
Designer Series Paper as the Star. Often Stampin’ Up! has some of the most beautiful paper so that it doesn’t need to be stamped on to show off it’s gorgeous color and design. This is one outhouse designer series papers that needs to thrills. To give it a hit of pow I layered it with cardstock to show the division the actual sketch.
One Stamp Card. We give a greetings cards to wish someone a Happy Birthday, to say Thank You, or just to say Hi. My card is obviously to say thank you. The sentiment came from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set that has been around longer than I’ve been a demonstrator. It’s one of those sets that has a greeting for every occasion…I kid you not!
Butterflies in Flight. To finish off the design I added two to add a little pop to the card front. Every butterfly also deserves some bling and that is why my butterflies will always be decorated with basic rhinestones.
I absolutely love the colors that were selected for this weeks Stamp Ink Paper Challenge and I hope to see what you come up with too.
Pedal On the Edge. I didn’t want the sentiment to look plain on the whisper white cardstock and chose to stamp it with one of the pedals stamps around the edges with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. It’s my go to ink these days for images that will be colored in with our Stampin’ Write markers. The ink also stands up to watercoloring and I can’t stop using it instead of any other inks because it doesn’t bleed.
Colored in Pedal. To used the gray pen in the Neutrals Stampin’ Write marker set because I also used a couple pieces from a retired punch left from Smoky Slate cardstock.
