This is THE week to participate in the Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA123). Our theme is "Puttin' on the Ritz" (think "bling" or maybe satin) and one lucky participant will be showered with Stampin' Up! products from each one of the nine PPA demonstrator design team members. Mystery blog candy packages are delivered from across the country to the winner. A perfect holiday surprise! CLICK HERE TO PLAY the PPA challenge and for your chance to win the PPA Blog Candy Blowout!
- The tiny strings of rhinestones in the Stampin' Up! Jewels Basic Rhinestones are a delightful shot of bling with the "celebrate" sentiment.
- A single rhinestone on the "you" sentiment is a good balance.
- I love how the Silver Glimmer star peeks through from the interior. The Stars #2 Originals Die was used to create all the cropped stars (except the star window).
- Cut and score the perfect A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") PLUS crop out the star window in just ONE pass through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine. Watch my Stampin' Pretty Demonstrator Video Tutorial to learn how to use the Stampin' Up! Movers & Shapers Bigz XL Die and Magnetic Punch Windows.
STAMPIN' UP! OCCASIONS MINI CATALOG AND SALE-A-BRATION SNEAK PEEKS start tomorrow. I had a chance to experiment with some amazing new stamps, tools and embellishments and can't wait to share samples using products coming soon!
