Three Amigos Plus One

 

Wild West Paper Arts Three Amigos Treat Holder Plus

Wild West Paper Arts Three Amigos Treat Holders

Happy Friday everyone!  I’ve been dying to share these cute little Halloween Treat holders with you.  Just had to wait for the perfect time.  Not sure why I picked today but it IS a perfect day for Three Amigos Plus One.  What’s the “Plus” you ask?  Here’s a two-part answer.

First of all, here’s an Autumn version that started it all off created for a Treat Holder Swap earlier this month.

Wild West Paper Arts Autumn Wooden Treat Holder

More creatures are in the works.  So much fun!

The second “Plus” is a tutorial in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to end Alzheimer’s Disease.  The Northern Nevada Walk takes place Saturday, September 27, 2014.  That’s tomorrow.  If you’ve followed my blog for over a year, you may remember my involvement in the walk last year as a tribute to my husband and his family.  The disease seems to run in his family and yes, he does have it.

Last year I was able to raise $750 mostly because of you, my readers, and my little monster bookmarks tutorial. Click Here to see last year’s project.  This year has been a little unsettled. Early organization and finding a “thank-you” project for donations was not as easy.  Meet the 2014 Take A Bite Out of Alzheimer’s Monster.

Wild West Paper Arts 2014 Take A Bite Out of Alzheimer's Monster

Arts 2014 Take A Bite Out of Alzheimer’s Monster by Wild West Paper Arts

So, here’s the deal.  Make a donation of $1.00 or more, directly to my Alzheimer’s Fundraising Page and you’ll get the tutorial 2014 Take A Bite Out of Alzheimer’s Monster by Wild West Paper Arts. In fact, you’ll get tutorials all Three Amigos Plus One!

My plans are to introduce at least one new Curvy Treat Holder character from now through Easter 2015.  Tutorials will ONLY be available to those of you that donate to my Alzheimer’s Walk Page.  You’ll get a private log-in to download the tutorials as they come out. Even though the page will remain open until Easter, 2015, membership to this private page ends at Midnight, November 1, 2014.  Hurry!  Your creatures await!

What do you think?  Lets take A Bite Out of Alzheimer’s together! Email me if you have any questions or concerns.

Autumn View PPA221

PPA221RJ01It’s Thursday and time for Sketch Challenge PPA221 from Pals Paper Arts. Some challenges have me scratching my head wondering what product to use.  Not this time.  This looks like the perfect sketch for an Autumn View.    Pals Paper Arts PPA221 Sketch Challenge at Wild West Paper ArtsI’ve been waiting for the right time to use this sheet from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper Pack. I love the trees with their colorful fall leaves and those spooky peering eyes.

Wild West Paper Arts Motley Monsters DSP #135819

Click Here

The window panes are created with my Big Shot (#113439) and a 1″ square from the Framelits Square Collection (#130921).  This is definitely a time to use the Magnetic Platform (#130658).  No catawampus (yes that’s a word in the dictionary) window panes on THIS card.

Magnetic Platform #130658

Magnetic Platform #130658

Look closely to see little sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim (#132983) glued on randomly.

Wild West Paper Arts Autumn View PPA221Colors from the window view were used to create swag accent.  I pulled apart fibers from Burlap Ribbon (#132140), Two Tone Trim in White and Tangerine Tango (#135838), and a bit of Gold 1/8″ Ribbon (#134583).  Finally, I tied them all together with a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine (#132975).

Wild West Paper Arts Autumn View PPA221One challenge to the swag was keeping the fibers separated.  They all seemed to droop in the same direction.  The 2-way Glue Pen (#100425) really came in handy for this.  Simply spread some of the glue under the swag fibers, in different areas and press the fibers down.  Perfect!

One more tool I really need to mention, the Craft Scissors (#108360).  These scissors are a MUST HAVE when trimming ribbon and cloth.  A lot of different scissors have crossed my path over the years. These beauties are sharp and well-balanced.

Stampin' Up! Craft Scissors at Wild West Paper Arts

Craft Scissors (#108360)

Give them a try.  I think you’ll like the investment.  As scissors go, this pair is a very economical, quality choice when compared to some of the higher priced competitors.  This is one tool that is hidden from my family!

Autumn View was a really fun and easy card to make.  In fact if you have a fear of stamping, this project is for you.

Come on out and play with us this week for Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #221.

Psst…. Want to know how you can get Motley Monsters or your choice of any other Designer Series Paper Pack FREE for 6 months?  That’s one package per month for six months! Check back here on October 1st.  Until then… it’s a secret.

Thank you so much visiting this Autumn View

Eat, Drink and Be Scary

Wild West Paper Arts Eat, Drink and Be Scary

It’ll be time to Eat, Drink and Be Scary before you can say, “Boo!” and these three amigos are ready to party.

We did just that with a group of friends this weekend.  We call ourselves the Paper Dolls.  Every month or so, we pick a theme and get together to cards and great food.  Three people offer cards and the rest bring the food.  Simple and fun. This card was my contribution.  Read on to see the rest of the cards we made.

When creating a card, I try to use one stamp set whenever possible. In this case I needed a few elements that weren’t available in the Fall Fest Bundle (137628).

In comes a stamp set that’s been sitting on my shelf, waiting for the perfect opportunity to come out and play.  Holiday Invites (#135074) was given to me at the 2014 Create. Inspire. Share convention.  I really didn’t think I’d use it but it was just the ticket to turn this nice card into a perfect card. The little elements are a perfect size for your Project Life pages too!

You may think the moon was created with the “Hombre” technique.  No, no, au contraire.  It’s part of the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper (#135074) package.  In fact, you’ll get six sheets like this in three different colors (Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow).

The cute little pumpkins are topped with bows made of Linen Thread #104199. It’s obvious, these girls just wanna have fun!

Now for some more inspiration from the September Paper Dolls gathering.

It’s Thursday, another chance to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your creative muscle with Pals Paper Arts.  Sometimes stretching means using less not more as in the Peace and Joy Flurry shown here.  Why is it a stretch?  If you’re like me it’s truly a challenge to use just a few products.

Grab the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and some Vellum Cardstock to begin your project. Emboss with your Big Shot and Standard Platform.
