The Pals Paper Arts Design Team believes that a good sketch, like a pattern for fashion, is the foundation of balance and style. This week's PPA challenge offers a lovely sketch by Design Team member Margaret Moody. Check out the PPA Design Team samples and challenge your paper crafting skills using this sketch.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: There's no requirement to upload more than one card for the challenge! Go as clean and simple or as jazzed up as you want!
- This design is all about "the snips." My Stampin' Up! Paper Snips navigated cleanly around the lines of the flowers from Growing Green. To maintain better control, move the card stock while cutting, not the scissors.
- A couple flowers popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals give a 3-D garden effect.
NEW PRODUCT ALERT! You can finally order the Decorative Label Extra Large Punch on 9/1, with the launch of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. Try punching the sentiment off center and adding a row of brads or punches for a new look.
- The fabric from this gorgeous bedding (Garnet Hill) caught my attention and inspired me to use a colorful palette.
COMING UP ON FRIDAY. Are you ready for Stampin' Up! blog candy?
