PPA 213 - Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends!
It's Thursday and time for another challenge at Pals Paper Arts. This week we have this fabulous sketch challenge designed by the talented Nicole Watt .

  • I strayed from the sketch just a bit and used the new A Happy Hooray Stamp Set and did a little heat embossing.
  • You may not be able to put your finger on what you love about this set, but it's definitely there.
  • The bold shapes juxtaposed with the feather and flower just make it fun to create with these clear mount images and the Hexagon and 1-3/8" Circle punches.

PPA 211 - Color Challenge

Hello Friends! 

We have a gorgeous color challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts. We're using Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. 


  • The Blended Bloom stamp #135906 is so easy to color using the Stampin' Blendabilities™ Markers.
  • I stamped and colored the image twice. 
  • I cut one of the blooms and layered on top of the other to give the flower even more dimension.

What sets the Stampin' Blendabilities apart from others:
  • The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine. 
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Color coded caps.
  • Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.
