Oh My Goodies! It’s a New PPA Challenge

Gorgeous!  I love the look of dry embossing on Whisper White Cardstock.  The key to this card was using the Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lace Embossing Folder.  The floral images look so crisp and pretty–even better than I can photograph!


I used this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA210) as my palette!  Check out what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have come up with for this color combo HERE!


  • Since texture is such a dominant element of this card, a simple sentiment and embellishments are in order.

  • The “live well” stamp is from Oh My Goodies, new in the Stampin’ Up! 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  It coordinates with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies for a perfect cropped image every time.  Cool!
  • Don’t forget the Stampin’ Up! Magnetic Platform is your best friend for lining up stamp images and framelits before their trip through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

  • Eying that ribbon?  The 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon comes in all five of the 2014-2016 In Colors, including Lost Lagoon on today’s card, my current favorite.
