Are you ready to play this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA83)? Combine Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake for a classy finish. Be sure to check out the PPA Design Team's samples HERE with the added bonus of seeing what Celebrity Guest Stamper Nance Leedy drummed up for the challenge, too.
Is there such a thing as clean and simple vintage? I have truly gotten excellent mileage from the Nature Walk stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. Sponging the edges of all the layers in Crumb Cake ink and a shot of Vintage Wallpaper texture are quick ways to pull together the "clean and simple" vintage look.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches allowed me to dress up the "true friend" sentiment in a flash (Sale-A-Bration "Punch Bunch").
- Vanilla Rosettes can be customized to match Stampin' Up! colors using a Stampin' Write Marker. Watch my 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial to learn how.
- Naturals Ivory Card Stock is so rich . . . I used it recently on this card after ignoring it for ages. I'm hooked all over again!
