Welcome to this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  A fabulous pallet for Fabulous Florets, don’t you think?

The daffodils have been up for a couple of weeks and I’m ready to see the beautiful colors of spring.  This bouquet is for those of you that are freezing in parts of the country.

How can you make your own bouquet?  First, start with a great stamp set.

Fabulous Florets #123024

Fabulous Florets #123024 [c]

Stamp the line-art pieces on Whisper White card stock with StaZon Jet Black and color with Blender Pens and ink.  Then, “fussy cut” them out.

Next, attach a doily to the front and stamp the solid leaf and stem image directly on the doily with StazOn Jet Black. Detail the leaves and stem with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker with quick, light strokes using the writing tip.

Fabulous Florets DetailAttach flowers and leaf with Glue Dots and Dimensionals.  Add Pearls Basic Jewels to the flower centers and you’re done!

Blender Pen Coloring Tip:

When coloring on Whisper White or Very Vanilla don’t overwork. Applying pressure and ink over and over will cause the paper to “pill”. Highlights and shading can also be added with matching Stampin’ Write markers.

Give it a try.  You’ll have a beautiful spring garden in no time at all.  Then share it on Pals Paper Arts.

A few more stamp sets that lend themselves to this technique are:

Today’s Featured Items:

Nuts & Bolts: Stamp Set (Fabulous Florets); Ink (Rose Red, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, StaZon Jet Black, Stampin’ Write Marker Basic Black); Paper (Whisper White and So Saffron Card stock, Subtles Designer Paper Stack); Accessories (Doilies, Pearls Basic Jewels, Seam Binding Trim); Tools (Blender Pens, Acrylic Blocks, Paper Snips, Stampin Pierce Mat & Tool with Essentials Piercing Pack); Adhesives (Multipurpose Liquid Glue, SNAIL)

Now it’s your turn.

Create your own Fabulous Floret.

Spring has Sprung!

2014marhop_badge

Spring has sprung with the Pals March Blog Hop. I’m so excited to kick-off the season with creative projects by me and my fellow Pals. Hope Spring finds your part of the country soon!

Whether you’re starting the hop here in the Wild West, or hopping over from Sue Becker at RnR Stamping #26, welcome! If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

WWPA2014-03-11 PALS BLOG HOP MAINFor me, signs of spring are the sounds of birds and baskets everywhere.  So, why not combine them in a cute little spring basket?  This one is easy to make with a 6″ x 6″ piece of card stock, some Designer Series Paper, Pearls and shredded paper.

Basket Tips:

  • Score at 2″ and 4″ then turn the square 90 degrees and repeat. You’ll have nine 2″ squares is you’ve done it correctly.
  • Round corners
  • Determine the left and right sides of the square.
  • Cut both sides of the middle square on the Right side. Do NOT cut it completely off.  Repeat for the Left Side.
  • Cut 9 pieces of DSP each 1-7/8″ square.  Round corners on four of them.  Affix to each square of basket with SNAIL.
  • Fold sides up to create the basket and affix the sides with Sticky Strip
  • Create a handle with matching card stock and DSP.  The handle shown here is 3/4″ x 10 Whisper White and 1/2″ x 10″ Easter Elegance.
  • Embellish as desired and fill with paper shreds.

Bird Builder Punch

You can add all kinds of embellishments to the side like birds punched from The Bird Builder Punch.  I kept them “hidden” just like birds in nature.  Kind of like a whisper.  When someone whispers we lean in closer so not to miss a thing.

Come on Spring!

Come On Spring https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/DshhBFGZY--084UfZTJQYhuTP2kR5nYe6I1I-30_Vh2byLu9ykFpcsjkuOI6oK-fubfsXmamJzijnc-sBCTlaQe7WGH3FAnZ3_FYJY2q6EAXXIsbXZcWEoX6QAEven if the weather doesn’t say it, a change is coming.  Here’s a little nudge of spring color from Pals Paper Arts to ease us into the beautiful, vibrant hues we’ll soon see everywhere.  Come on spring!

Have you ever created a card, stood back and said to yourself, “Nope, something’s missing”?  Well, that’s what happened with this project.  It was all done, or so I thought.

Placing words in the white hexagons crossed my mind but there was already enough structure.  How about some ink spatter?

Come On Spring DetailI pulled the hexagons off the background, stamped the ink spatter from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set speckles and re-attached everything. It was worth the time for sure.  Be careful when pulling apart a deeply embossed card.  Textured embossing make card stock fragile.  When I disassembled this project, I almost ruined it.

Those small hexagons are pieces popped from the new Hexagon Hive Thinlit.  They fit the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder perfectly!

Come On Spring InsideA few more hexagons keep the inside sentiment company.  That’s it!

Don’t forget to play at Pals Paper Arts!

Today’s Featured Items:

  • Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (Clear Mount #130517; Wood Mount #130514)
  • Hexagon Hive Thinlit #132965.
  • Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #129378

Nuts & Bolts: Stamp Sets (Gorgeous Grunge #130517 [c], 130514 [w]; Simply Sketched Hostess Set #129672 [c], #129669 [w]); Ink: Night of Navy (#126970); Card Stock (Night of Navy #100867, Smoky Slate #131202, Whisper White #100730); Designer Series Paper (Afternoon Picnic #131390); Accessories (Bakers Twine-Whisper White #124262, Basic Metal Buttons #133319); Tools (Big Shot #113439, Hexagon Hive Thinlit #132965, Honeycomb Embossing Folder #129378, Paper Snips #103579, Stampin’ Trimmer #126889); Adhesives (Glue Dots #103683, SNAIL #104332, Stampin’ Dimensionals #104430); Time to Create (15 minutes).

Kick in the Patooty!

WWPA2014-03-05 mojo 335

It’s been a while since I’ve played with a Mojo Monday sketch.  Since the side of my brain that designs cards needed a kick in the patooty, the timing was perfect.  You know what I’m talkin’ about. All the materials were there but the foundation wasn’t coming together.

In this case, the materials are part of the “Good as Gold SAB (Sale-A-Bration) Card Kit.  However, boredom sets in after a couple of the same old cards. By doing things a little differently you can create a whole new spin on the original kit.  Example, the card above.

Don’t get me wrong, the Good as Gold SAB Card Kit is full of fun with all of the confetti sparkles and bright colors.

Good as Gold Card Kit #133512

Another “Did You Know?” fact.  March is the last month for a few great promotions.  To name a few:

Sassy Congratulations

Sassy CongratulationsBig plans for the weekend? How about some sassy bling?  Perfect for a celebration, don’t you think?  When asked to put together an “All Occasion” card class one of the projects needed to be a congratulations card.  Hmm, graduation, wedding, accomplishment, they can all have a very different look.  Stars and bling with an attitude were on my mind when Sassy Congratulations came together.

First, create some texture with the new Decorative Dots on page 13 on the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  Even though I love my Big Shot, embossing is saved for the Textured Boutique Embossing Machine.

Textured Boutique Embossing Machine #132657

Textured Boutique Embossing Machine Item ##132657

Decorative Dots Embossing Folder #133520

Embossing Folder
Item #133520

 Why?  The biggest reason is plates.  Since the Textured Boutique machine is dedicated to embossing, the super strong black plates don’t get warped.  Warped plates can be a big problem when trying to get a nice, even embossed impression.  I was skeptical at first but it didn’t take me long to become a fan.

Sassy Congratulations To achieve this mirror look just pop-up the top white layer and the Silver Glimmer Paper star with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the top of the Silver Foil Sheets.  Super simple, super result!

Sassy CongratulationsThe inside is also kept simple. Use the punched star as an inside embellishment (I hate to waste pretty pieces of paper). Then stamp Congratulations from Sassy Salutations in Bermuda Bay to keep it cool.  Sassy Salutations is even available as a digital download (Item #130860)!

Sassy Salutations Stamp Set
Item #126707

There you have it.  A snazzy card you can make in a flash, even if you have a busy weekend planned.

Today’s Featured Items:

  • Texture Boutique Embossing Machine #132657
  • Sassy Salutations Stamp Set (Clear Mount #126707, Wood Mount #132070, Digital Format #130860)
  • Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#133520)   Email me for more information on how to get this FREE! (Rae@WildWestPaperArts.com)

Hello Hexagon Hive

Hexagon Hive HelloYou’re about to see a tool that I had to be convinced to buy.  The price seemed a bit more than I wanted to spend.  Then… the “Enabler” got to me  otherwise knows as Pinterest!  Hello Hexagon Hive Thinlit.

Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die

Hexagon Hive Thinlit Die #132965

Call me enabled but I love this die as much as my Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, maybe more.

There’s always room on the workbench for a tool that makes beautiful creations in simple steps.  Don’t underestimate this hard-working tool. It has staying power for even the most detailed and involved projects.

Quick Thinlit Tip:

Layer the “sandwich” as follows:

  1. Magnetic Plate
  2. Cutting Plate
  3. Paper
  4. Wax Paper
  5. Thinlit Die
  6. Cutting Plate

Do this and the pieces will pop out of the Thinlit Die lickety split!

Now it’s your turn.  You’ll need  card stock, Designer Series Paper, Hexagon Hive Thinlit, ribbon and your favorite stamp/punch combination.  You’ll find a complete list of Nuts & Bolts at the bottom of this post.

Enable yourself and you’ll soon be saying Hello Hexagon hive! Don’t forget, for every $50.00 you spend (before tax and shipping) during Sale-A-Bration you’ll choose a free gift from the brochure.  Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 2014.
