PPA 197 - Sketch Challenge


We have a really fun sketch challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts! I'm excited to see all the creations from our talented design team members.
Sometimes cute happens—and you’ve just gotta share it! 
  •  For today's project I used the new Sweetie Pie (love the name) and Sweetie Pie Frames stamps sets. 
  • Have you tried Stampin' Up!s photopolymer stamps yet? I hadn't until now and I'm really diggin' them. 
  • They stick beautifully to the clear blocks, stamp perfectly and clean with ease. The only downside is they have a "rubber-ish" sort of odor, but I don't mind it. Plus, the smell is one sure way to know it is a true photopolymer stamp and not silicone. 
  • They are also not "squishy" like silicone stamps, so you get a clean & crisp image every time.

PPA 195 - Color Challenge

We have another color challenge for you try this week at Pals Paper Arts. The colors we're using for this challenge are Rose Red, So Saffron and Wild Wasbi. We would love for you to play along with us this week!


  • I did a quick sponging of all three colors onto Whisper White CS and then stamped my image and greeting.
  • The image is from the Backyard Basics Stamp Set and as winter fades and spring approaches, the images in this Stamp Set will inspire you to appreciate the beauty that is all around you! 
  • Plus, it coordinates with the Backyard Basics Framelits Dies, which allows you to cut your stamped images precisely.
