Celebrate Glitter!

Celebrate Glitter at WildWestPaperArts.comIt may not look like it but the Wild West Pick this week is….. Gold Stampin’ Glitter (#133457).  Congratulations Chris R. on your guess! Hold your horses, you’ll see me celebrate glitter in just a minute.  First, a story.

A group of friends gather at my house about every month.  Three of us create cards for everyone to make.  Those not creating cards bring the food.  Great food and crafts with friends.  A real “win-win”!  This month it seems I’ve had a bit of creative block.  Pinterest to the rescue!  While this is not an exact replica of the inspiration (provided by a pin from Kathleen Wingerson), it sure helped get those creative juices flowing.  Thanks Kathleen!

Now for the Gold Stampin’ Glitter.  After the girls left I started thinking.. hmm, wonder what this card would look like with some glitter scattered around.

Celebrate Glitter at WildWestPaperArts.comHard to see in the photo but in the sunlight, it really shimmers.  How did I make it stick?  Spray adhesive.

Celebrate Glitter at WildWestPaperArts.com

Just a quick, light spray and then a dusting of glitter.  Then, flick the back of your card with your finger to remove the excess.  Done!  Loctite brand is shown here but any brand will do.

Tip:  I put all of my Stampin’ Glitter in small, glass salt shakers.  Their in expensive and easy to use.  Less waste and chance of a major spill. Psst… you can still get the Gold Stampin’ Glitter on sale until 11:59 pm Mountain Time tonight, (June 22, 2015).  Now THAT’s Wild!

If you took the time to guess the Wild West Pick of the Week on my June 16-22, 2015 Weekly Deals Post, you’ll get a tutorial with complete supply listing, for this card emailed to you tomorrow.  If not, there’s a new set of deals tomorrow with another chance to guess.  You’ll find a partial supply list at the foot of this post.  You can also get these tutorials by purchasing your Stampin’ Up! products through me.  Just make sure to email me (rae@wildwestpaperarts.com) after you make your online purchase.

Till then….

PPA256 Sketch Challenge with Pals

PPA256 Sketch Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com
PPA256 Sketch Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comTime to stand on our heads and turn the PPA256 Sketch Challenge upside down. Gymnastics aren’t for everyone so be careful when trying this at home.

All kidding aside, don’t adjust your screen!  I did turn the sketch a few different directions before deciding how to use it.  Just click the sketch image to view the correct sketch.

The patterned background paper comes from Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (#138443).  It’s quickly become a favorite of mine.  All of its 24 bright and cheerful patterns are so upbeat.  Sure to put a smile on a face when the card is received.

The large candles are embossed with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#132174) to coordinate with the little candles in the background.  It just wouldn’t be right if the large candles didn’t match.

Have you figured out how the flame was cut?  Here’s a hint…. on another project it could fly.  If you guessed the Bird Builder Punch (#117191), you would be right.  It matches perfectly with the flame stamp included in the Build a Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set (#138646). Cool, eh?  Finish off the flame with a dab of Dazzling Details (#124117) to make it pop.

Celebration Time!

wwpa2015-06-17
I bet you think this card is for Independence Day. Well, that’s what it was intended for. However, there were a few hiccups with the Wild West blog last week and I’ve had to spend time fixing a few things.  Actually, it was a little more serious than a hiccup… somewhere between trip and crash is more accurate.  I’d say it’s celebration time!

Now that you know I haven’t been on some tropical island somewhere… let’s get to the project.

For those of you that commented on the Weekly Deals Post last week, this is your card.  My Wild West Pick June 15, 2015 is Gold Glimmer Paper.  Glimmer paper has become a real staple in the tack room.  With all the dust and dirt a little glitz and glamour is a must.  You’ll get your PDF Tutorial this Friday to make up for the craziness last week.

Celebration Time at WildWestPaperArts.comWonder where the “Celebrate” stamp came from?  You won’t find it in the catalog.  It’s one of the cute stamps we received in the May Paper Pumpkin Kit.  These sets keep getting better and Stampin’ Up! is saying goodbye to some of the past Paper Pumpkin kits on July 27 (or sooner if customers snatch them all up)! Check out what’s retiring here. Once they’re gone, they’re gone for-e-ver! May 2015 Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set at WildWestPaperArts.com

As a special perk, current Paper Pumpkin subscribers can purchase a selection of past Paper Pumpkin Kits and refills, while supplies last. When you fall in love with a kit, there’s no need to be sad when your supplies run out-just go grab another one (or two)! There’s no guarantee that every kit will be offered as a past kit and refill, and you should get ’em while they’re hot because they’re only available while supplies last! Check out the current selection by clicking the following link Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Remember, you must be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to purchase the past kits.  Here’s a link to help you sign-up – Paper Pumpkin at Wild West Paper Arts.

Ready for a sneak peak of the June 2015 Kit?  Here you go…

PPA255 Color Challenge with Pals

PPA255 Color Challenge with the Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com
PPA255 Color Challenge http://wildwestpaperarts.com/wild-west-pick-june-8-2015 Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comHappy Thursday or what some of us call Friday Junior! You know what that means, right? It’s time to play with Pals Paper Arts. So, come join me for PPA255 Color Challenge with the Pals.

What do you think, Father’s Day? Birthday?  As you can see this trio of rich colors spoke to me in “Guy” talk.  That means earthy and lots of texture.  The guy that I heard for this was one salty dog complete with beard and a peg leg.

The stamp set used is a tried and true masculine set, “The Open Sea”.

Clear Mount Stamp Set #123032

Early Espresso and Marina Mist were both used to distress this project.  If you look very close you’ll even see distressing on the card base.  Why Early Espresso distressing on card stock of the same color?  Believe it or not the tone on tone distressing adds even more dimension and richness without screaming at you. Now THAT’s Wild!

Another piece that adds pow is the Linen Thread.  It’s really popular right now to lay down thread or twine behind a focal piece in a way that looks haphazard.  Love this look.

PPA255 Color Challenge with the Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comTip:  Don’t be afraid to let yourself “color outside the box” literally on this kind of card.  Lots of times little “accidents” make the best shabby projects.

Now it’s your turn.  Come join us over at Pals Paper Arts to play PPA255 Color Challenge!
