Sparkling Wild West Pick

Wild West Pick of the Week March 10 2015The Wild West Pick of the Week is glitz and bling!  This was a difficult one.  You wouldn’t think so but unfortunately, most of the Weekly Deals March 10, 2015 aren’t part of the Wild West inventory. However, Baker’s Twine and Gold Stampin’ Glitter is.  Result, a sparkling Wild West Pick this week.

While prepping the project I wanted to show different ways to use Stampin’ Glitter.

For instance, have you ever used Sticky Strip to adhere glitter?  It’s great!  Just create a design with Sticky Strip, sprinkle it with glitter then press the glitter into the sticky strip.  The spiral pattern on the bottles is created with this technique.

Wild West Pick of the Week March 10 2015 - 1

Another method?  Spray with Fixative and sprinkle with glitter like the rose above or the confetti popper below.

Wild West Pick of the Week March 10 2015 - 3

Both of these projects have been on my “to do list” for quite some time.  Not sure what took so long.  The Confetti Poppers are actually filled with Hershey’s Golden Nuggits.

If you made your Wild West Pick of the Week guess by Friday, March 13, 2015 (midnight eastern), you’ll receive tutorials for these goody holders on Sunday.  Just in time for some last minute St. Patrick’s Day treats.

Last Week Tutorial Update:  As you may have read, I had a bad abcess for a few days.  I’m  on the mend and your tutorial will be delivered tomorrow.  Thank you for your patience.

Patiently Awaiting Paper Pumpkin

MPP 2014-December - Alternates at WildWestPaperArts.comTap, tap, tap.  No, that’s not the sound of inking up my favorite stamp.  It’s me, tapping my toes while patiently awaiting Paper Pumpkin!  Well, maybe not so patiently.

You see the “I’m on my way.” email came today. That’s when it all starts.  The stalking of the mail carrier.  Not this month!  I pulled out some extra’s from December 2014 Paper Pumpkin and started to play.  The card below shows one of the suggested projects.

MPP 2014-December - Hello Card

Guess what you get when all of the little stars are punched out?  You got it… a beautiful negative in three colors.

Paper Pumpkin December 2014 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Add some Star Framelit die cuts and coordinating ribbon and you have a whole new look from your Paper Pumpkin leftovers.

I wonder what surprises will come in the Paper Pumpkin kit this month.  With a kit name like “Sew You” sounds like there may be stitches involved. What do you think?

Tap, tap, tap.  Patiently awaiting Paper Pumpkin.

PPA243 Color Challenge with the Pals

PPA243 Color Challenge with the Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comPPA243 Color Challenge with the Pals at WildWestPaperArts.comAre you ready for PPA243 Color Challenge with the Pals? I am.  Especially with this beautiful trio of colors. Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding and Soft Sky come together creating the perfect pallet for Easter, Mother’s Day and your spring All Occasion Cards.

With the cancellation of the Blendabilities Alcohol Marker line it’s time to pull out other tried and true coloring options offered by Stampin’ Up!  Today’s card is created with a combination of Aqua Painters, Classic Ink Refills and Stampin’ Write Markers.  Why use Stampin’ Write Markers with Aqua Painters and refill ink?  Detail.  After your water coloring is dry use your Watercolor Markers to give some sharp detail to your creation.

PPA243 Color Challenge with the Pals at WildWestPaperArts.com

Take a close look at the flower stems and leaves to see this technique in action.

Another technique used is a form of “Spot Lighting”. Instead of spotlighting an area to highlight color, it’s used to emphasize a phrase.  Handpicked Framelit + Love is Kindness Stamp = Perfect combo!

Now, about those Blendabilties.  Stampin’ Up! proves again what a great company they are.  Instead of continuing to sell markers that have a high fail rate, they’ve taken the lead and removed them from their offering. Now That’s Wild!

The following Q&A list from Stampin’ Up! should help answer some of your questions.

Q: What are the quality problems with this product?
A: When the tip is welded to the barrel, the welding process can leave microscopic (invisible) holes in the marker tip. This leads to accelerated evaporation of the alcohol in the ink.

Q: Are all Blendabilities markers defective?
A: No. Most Blendabilities markers work as intended.

Q: Why did it take so long for Stampin’ Up! to discover this problem?
A: Over the months we’ve noticed quality issues with this product, but they were within normal tolerance. We’ve also received some great feedback and know that many of you have thoroughly enjoyed working with Blendabilities. However, when corrections and complaints became more and more frequent, we increased the sophistication of our quality testing. This led to discoveries that meant we had a serious problem with the product line. Although these are still great markers, our manufacturer is now reporting a 30 to 40 percent fail rate before they are shipped to Stampin’ Up!—which is unacceptable.

How do I handle my defective or backordered items?

Q: I purchased and received Blendabilities. They are defective.
A: Do nothing. The refund will be automatically processed within the next month.

Q: How will customers (with backordered Blendabilities) be notified if they need to obtain a refund or select another product?
A:  Customers who purchased Blendabilities via the online store will be contacted by Stampin’ Up!, so feel free to let them know that we’ll be getting in touch with them.

Finally, if you’ve purchased Blendabilities from me and have questions, please send me an email.  I’ll do my best to answer your questions and concerns, contacting Stamipin’ Up! if needed.

Meanwhile…. pull out your Stampin’ Write markers, Aqua Painters and Blender Pens to color away!  Then, play with us at Pals Paper Arts this week.

Lucky You Treat Bag

Lucky You Treat Bag Wild West Pick of the Week at WildWestPaperArts.com

It’s Wild West Pick of the week again.  The Lucky You Treat Bag features those picks. If you commented on my Weekly Deals post this week, that is.  I’ve been a bit under the weather this week fighting and abscess so I was a little late with this post.  Sorry about that.  I’d post a picture of myself with my face all swollen but I don’t want to scare you.  My son says I looked like a Whoville character. Hmmm.

Three items on the Weekly Deals list were used in this fun creation.

Of these three, Lucky You Ensemble was the most fun. Everything except the Gold Glimmer Paper, Bag and embellishments were created using this ensemble and MDS (My Digital Studio). So glad I purchased this download.  So many elements!  And, of course there’s the obvious… My Digital Studio came to the rescue again.  A great helper when you’re not feeling very shiny.

Lucky You Treat Bag Wild West Pick of the Week March 3 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Inside the recipient will find some homemade shortbread cookies.  A few years ago I found a yummy recipe with a bit of a twist.  If you left a comment on Tuesday’s post with your Wild West Pick of the Week Guess, you’ll receive this along with your free tutorial by Monday evening.

No to many details today.  They’re included in the FREE tutorial for those that earned it with their comment.  Feeling left out?  Visit next Tuesday to play along with us and earn your FREE tutorial.

PPA242 Color Challenge with the Pals

 

ppa242PPA242 Color Challenge at WildWestPaperArts.comPPA242 Color Challenge with the Pals, just in time for St. Patty’s Day, or St. Padraig in the Irish.  Garden Green, Gold and Basic Black. Perfect!

As luck would have it I developed an abscess when planning this project. YUK!  Since concentration and creativity wasn’t the highest priority, I turned to my “last minute friend”  My Digital Studio (MDS).  It has rescued me more times than I can count.

Partially created with My Digital Studio and partially with traditional paper crafting elements, this card is a “Hybrid”. Today we’ll focus on the Digital elements.

Lucky You for My Digital Studio 129930 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Lucky You for My Digital Studio 129930

This printable image is ready to print 8-1/2 x 11.  Wait, there’s more!

The best thing about this download is HOW it’s put together for you.  You can print it and go OR you can change each element to the color and size you desire.  For instance, the original green is Old Olive.  Within five minutes it was changed to Garden Green.  All of the grey letters and numbers are actually Basic Black with opacity changed. This gives lighter shades of the same color. You can also take an element out and replace it with a name or anything else you’d like.  Sure you could assemble this printable image on your own.  But why would you when the work is done for you.   Such a deal for $1.95!  Now thats wild!

The inside is all traditional stamping with some Gold Sequins thrown in for good luck.

Here’s a few other hybrid projects from the past.
