Build a Bouquet for a Special Day

Yay for Saturday! Time to relax and give your brain a rest.  What better way to do that then to use a kit?  And, the newly released, 2015 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up! has some great ones.  Could it be time to Build a Bouquet for a Special Day (#137952)?

Time to come clean… I don’t have my hands on this kit yet. However, rumor has it that it’s absolutely incredible!  Now that Stampin’ Up! has come out with the video below, you can guess what’s on my next order.  I can already see many uses for these fantastic flowers.

Not a kit person?  Stampin’ Up! has you covered. But, more on that tomorrow.

For those of you that have the kit … this is for you. Let’s watch the video.

Not convinced?  Sign up for the Wild West January “Try It” class, on January 27th, and create two flowers to take home.  Click here for details and to RSVP Today! Space is limited to the first ten guests. You’ll also earn a discount on the kit when you purchase during the class.

See you soon and thank you for visiting WildWestPaperArts.com to

PPA235 Color Challenge with My Pals

PPA235 Color Challenge with my palsPPA235 Color Challenge with The PalsTimber!  It’s Thursday, time for PPA235 Sketch Challenge with Design Team 2 and My Pals.  This cool trio has me thinking Valentine. “Odd”, you say? That’s why Wild West Paper Arts is “where paper and ink run wild.” A different spin is the norm around here.

The challenge this week was using two very light blues that are just different enough to make things tricky.  Can you spot the use of Soft Sky inside and out?

PPA235 Color Challenge – Project Inside

Five items from the newly released, 2015 Occasions Catalog were used to create this card.  I’m not quite sure which are my favorites.  Of course the super cute, crystal clear, Wood You Be Mine Stamp Set (#137134) is at the top of the list.

Wood You Be Mine Item #137134

Another favorite made the top of my list because of this project.  When I saw the thin wood sheets included in the Simply Created So You Kit (#137951), I knew they would be a perfect match for this stamp set.  They punched nicely too.  This is one super kit, full of all kinds of goodies.

PPA234 Color Challenge & Happy New Year!

PPA234 Happy New Year 2015 at Wild West Paper Arts

PPA234 Color Challenge at Wild West Paper ArtsHappy 2015! What better way to start the new year than with color challenge PPA234 with my Pals? I can’t think of anything, can you?  Unless you’re the resolution type, of course.

What are your New Year’s Day traditions?  I’ll start, but there’s one thing you should know.  I believe the word “Resolution” is a dirty word.

  • Reflect on 2014. What went well, what should I change?
  • Watch the Rose Bowl parade and football game
  • Fix a big pot of beans
  • Rest up for 2015

I chose to create a graphic with My Digital Studio for my challenge entry.  Lots of layers and stamp brushes pulled from different downloads along with a punch or two make for a blustery winter scene.

Here are the different downloads I pulled from:

Now it’s your turn. Play along with the Pals Color Challenge PPA234.  Click here for inspiration and your upload link.  Don’t forget to comment on our design team entries.  They LOVE to hear from you.  Speaking of design teams.  We have some changes.  Get all the details on the Pals Paper Arts blog.

And, don’t forget the “resolutions”!  Leave a comment, I’d love to hear what you’re resolving in 2015.

PPA233 Sketch Challenge with my Pals

PPA233 Sketch ChallengeWarmest wishes for a very Merry Christmas!  Just a coincidence that we got together for the last challenge for 2014 on the same day. I couldn’t resist sharing one more holiday card before 2014 is over and the PPA233 Challenge is the perfect sketch for the occasion.

The only thing more perfect is the new Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack available in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  Forty-eight sheets of beauty in nature backed up with quality designs you’ve grown to love from Stampin’ Up!

Take a look….

Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper #137780

To add interest, as if it didn’t have enough already, I used Gorgeous Grunge to emboss some worn spots all over the pine boughs and triangle pine trees.  Sequins were added for a little bit of sparkle.

Most of you are busy with your families today so this post is super short.  See you in 2015 for the first challenge of the new year from the Pals Paper Arts teams.

Happy holidays!

PPA232 Sketch Challenge with my Pals

PPA232 Sketch Challenge with my Pals - FrontPPA232 Sketch Challenge with my Pals

PPA232 Sketch Challenge with my Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comThursday has come and gone but we can still play with Pals Paper Arts. Take a break from your hectic holiday preparation with the PPA232 sketch challenge.

My favorite photopolymer stamp set this year has got to be Christmas Bliss (#138897. The bold sentiments with the touch of modern whimsy make it perfect for a bold sketch like this one.

The bold layers shown on this sketch shout texture to me.  Texture equals embossing folders, don’t you think?  To follow the whimsical theme of the stamp set, choose a couple different patterns.  Since it’s the winter holiday season, I chose textures reminiscent of candy canes (Stylish Stripes #132174) and snowfall (Decorative Dots #133520).

This set really didn’t get the “air time” that other holiday stamps enjoyed this year.  So sad.  Why?  Well, since it was an Online Only set, it wasn’t in the holiday catalog.

Christmas Bliss Stamp Set #138897

If you think it’s a little late to feature a Christmas stamp set for 2014, you would be correct.  This is for all of you “next-year preppers”. You know who you are (me too!)  We hunt for left-over Christmas boxes, wrapping paper and decorations to store away for next year. Get this one before it retires!

Holiday Shipping Schedule!

The deadline for standard shipping on your Stampin’ Up! orders is closing in.   Here’s what Stampin’ Up! recommends to prevent using expedited shipping costs.

“We recommend that you submit your holiday orders by the following dates to receive them by December 24:

  • My Digital Studio print products: December 9. Expedited shipping not available.
  • Traditional products: December 17 by 6:50 PM (MT) via phone or 11:50 PM (MT) via OEX .

Delivery times vary depending on where you live; if your personal experience indicates that it takes longer for packages to reach you, you should allow a little extra time for shipping during the holidays. As you know, we cannot control delivery times. Holiday mail volumes are high, and our delivery services encourage customers to ship as early as possible to avoid disappointment.”
