PPA95 The Perfect Adventure

Stampin up on the grow summer mini catalog punch
Isn't this sentiment the perfect mantra?  Such a delightful dose of optimism and spirited fun.  This card is my design this week for the Pals Paper Arts Clean and Simple Challenge–Using Brads (PPA95). 

To participate, you can take inspiration from the brad-studded chairs above.  Or perhaps, you want to do your own "thing" and simply use a brad (even a faux version) anywhere on a paper project?  Upload a photo to a blog or public gallery (like Splitcoaststampers) and add your link at the end of the PPA Challenge post.  It's that easy. 

See more card and rubber stamp ideas from the PPA Design Team.  Make it your "perfect adventure" to play along this week!


  • Stampin up itty bitty shapes punch pack bakers twine Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Sweet.  See the new Stampin' Up! embossing colors in action in this short "wow" video.
  • A bit of Baker's Twine adds a splashy polish to the row of flowers and brads.
  • Rounded corners give this card a simple and unique personality.

ALASKAN CRUISE UPDATE:  Today is the "perfect adventure" for exploring Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (also known as the "Garden City") and our final full day on the cruise.   Love the architecture and incredible flowers.  We timed this right!
