Now, a bit about my project, Hello Playful Pallet.

Size:  A standard A2 (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″)

Designer Paper:  I used a piece from the new Playful Pallete DSP Stack (141657).  What a super stack of paper.  Most of the new In-Colors are used in this artsy pallet of paper.  You’ll get 48 playful sheets (4 each of 12 double-sided designs).  This just may be the first paper stack I completely use up.

Details:  The center strip of black is embossed with Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item 139672).  New Ruched Ribbon tails add a bit of flare.  Colors used are in Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.

Hello:  Hello You Thinlits (item 137363) is used to cut two words for layering, one in Peekaboo Peach and one in Sweet Sugarplum.  Both are new In-Colors for 2016-2018. The Fine-Tip Glue Pen (138309) was used to attach them. So glad these will be around for two years.  Love the colors this year!!!  PSST… Don’t forget to use the Precision Base Plate (139684) to make removing the paper from the die a snap.

The Inside: Use up the little strips left over from the sheet to decorate the inside.  This gorgeous paper is just too precious to waste even a scrap!

Notice anything missing?  Nary a stamp set was used. Oh My!  Shhh, it’ll be our little secret.

By now you’re probably drooling over the samples you’ve seen using new product.  Does it feel like we’re taunting you?  This is one of the great perks of being as Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator… teasing our customers and followers a month in advance of a new catalog.  Neener, neener.  Become a demonstrator before September and you’ll get to do the same with the holiday catalog.  Click here to ask me how.

Now… let’s get back to the business of playing PPA300.

Hello Playful Pallet Current Product Round-up:

Swirly Scribbles Are Here!

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits are here!  Actually they’re in the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog by Stampin’ Up!

Swirly Scribbles at WildWestPaperArts.com

Don’t they remind you of Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh? Take another look and you’ll see a rose. It’s all in your point of view. There’s a lot of potential with these Swirly Scribble Thinlits (item 141497).  This die set includes nine dies. Even though it looks like more, I’ve only used two dies on this card.

Hidden Treasures: Don’t you just love finding treasures?  This one didn’t appear until releasing my cut from the die.  A super cute little scribble magically appeared!

Swirly Scribbles at WildWestPaperArts.com

Imagine the possibilities! Swirly Scribble Thinlits are also part of the Swirly Bird Bundle (item 142353) on page 152 of the new annual catalog by Stampin’ Up!  The Thinlit Dies alone are found on page 194.

The new Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper (item 141648) is used for this project. What makes it special?  Foil.  Two of the 12×12 sheets have are foiled designs.  The simple, graphic designs range from small and sweet to big and bold.  Fantastic! You’ll find this paper on page 172 of the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

Top it off with another pop.  Melon Mambo dots from It’s My Party Enamel Dots (item 140554) to be exact..

The most difficult decision?  Choosing the right greeting style. Curvy and bold a must. Short and sweet with a modern flare.  Found it!  Rose Wonder (item 140697) is perfect!  With all of the wonderful greetings included in this set, it has found a permanent place on my work bench.

There you have it… something old (kind of), something new and then a wink of pink…. or Melon Mambo.

Get your “wish list” out.  June 1st will be here before you know it!
