PPA251 Color Challenge with Pals!

PPA251 Color Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comPPA251 Color Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comOne word describes the PPA251 Color Challenge….. Vibrant!  The next thought that comes to mind… Birthday Party!  How about you?  Any thoughts on this trio of fun colors?

These colors are a little brighter than you’ll usually see in my projects.  But isn’t that the purpose of a challenge, to get out of our comfort zone?

Now for the stamp set. To complement the beautiful, bright colors we need a set of fun stamps.  Age Awareness (#135381) is just that… fun!

I especially like  some of the sentiments, like “Hey, I remembered your”.  I’ll use that phrase a bunch!

Card Inside

Going back to the front of the card, layers are created with the retiring Sweet Taffy DSP (#133693).

Notice the edges on the tag?  They were created with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch (#137416). If you haven’t tried the Tag Topper line of punches, you don’t know what you’re missing.  Create an elegant tag in seconds with any one of them.

Now for the good news…. most of these items will continue in the ne 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  Yay!! Have you double checked the Retiring Items List?  You only have about 2-1/2 weeks left to snag your favorite retiring items.  Don’t miss out.

PPA250 Color Challenge with Pals

PPA250 Color Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com PPA250 Color Challenge with the PalsPPA250 Color Challenge with Pals has been a blast!  This little gal is really a hoot.  Wisdom with a touch of attitude.  Just what the doctor ordered. I know EXACTLY who the recipient is for this one

If you like Word Bubbles (#132968) and Framelits you have until June 2, 2015 (while supplies last) to get them.  They’ve even been discounted a whopping 50% off!  Same goes for the Baked Brown Sugar (#135639) and Coastal Cabana (#135638) Thick Baker’s Twine.

Back to the card.  A stamp set that has paired phrases for the outside and inside of a card rate high on my list.  Just Kidding (#140667) has paired phrases that lead readers to open their cards.  Perfect!

PPA250 Color Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com Construction Tips:

  • Naughty Knots: Hold knotted Baker’s Twine in place with a drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue behind each knot.  Do the same thing to hold the ends in place on the reverse side.
  • Image placement:  First, create the “Window” using Framelits Squares Collection.  Place the window piece on the card without adhering.  Stamp the image through the window.

PPA250 Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comOf every retiring item on this page, the one thing I’m saddest to see go is the In-Color Baked Brown Sugar.  I just LOVE this color.  Alas, all good things come to an end, right?  Darn it!

Love You A Lot! Paper Pumpkin April 2015

Love You A Lot - Paper Pumpkin April 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.com
How did you spend Sunday? If you’re in the United States, you may have spent it with your mom or being pampered because you ARE a mom. Or, maybe both. Me? I was spoiled with dinner, a beautiful gift and a yummy Mocha Almond Cheesecake from Chef K. Wish I could share it with you. The day definitely said, “Love you a lot!”

A perfect day for me usually includes some craft time too. This day did not disappoint. First thing on the agenda was finishing up the April 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit, “Love You A Lot”. What took so long?  Well, my husband had an unplanned vacation complements of St. Mary’s Hospital. He had a little hitch in his get-a-long that required a stay at this five-star facility. Now you know why posts have been limited to a few for the last two weeks.

I just LOVE the April 2015 kit. Perfect for gift cards or little notes. Here are a few of my favorite “tweaks” using ONLY materials found in the kit.

Love You A Lot - Paper Pumpkin April 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Perfect for the “Suit” in your life!

How’s about a Gift Card?

Turn the “MOM” stamp upside down and get “WOW”!

Create additional tags by cutting each note card at the score line.

Great Gift Tag for Her

Another great kit from Paper Pumpkin!

Sunday also happened to be the tenth of the month. If you’re a Paper Pumpkin Head (Wild West term for a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber), you know the tenth of every month is the last day to make changes or subscribe to receive the current kit.

In case you missed it on Friday, Stampin’ Up! offered a smokin’ 24-hour deal with a sneak peek of the May 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit. Now that’s wild!  The $5.00 deal is over but take a look at the kit. Super cute!
