Today’s “quilt” card was “made with love,” paper and the pretty color combo for this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA160).  Check out what the rest of the PPA Residents Artists have come up with and PLAY ALONG HERE!PrimroseGumballWhite

  • This little paper “quilt” was easy!  I popped out 1″ squares (Stampin’ Up! 1″ Square Punch) in Primrose Petals, Gumball Green and Whisper White and layered them on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  I then cropped it with one of the Labels Collection Framelits and my Big Shot.

  • Although Core’dinations Card Stock looks smashing sanded, I like the classy “linen” finish if offers without any additional work.  Core’dinations card stock is available in the new catalog in all Stampin’ Up! colors (as color collection assortments) including the ten In Colors.

  • A couple Stampin’ Up! Rhinestones add bling without overwhelming the strong pattern.

  • A touch of coordinating paper piercing accentuates the yummy curves of the focal point.  The Festive Paper-Piercing Pack offers a variety of shapes, including templates for the Labels Collection Framelits.
