The fabulous “just for you” sentiment and flower image from Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Words have been dipped in gold!  I love the look of the images embossed in gold, especially the flowers on the Bermuda Bay card stock!

Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge PPA260

I used this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA260) for my design inspiration. Check out what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have created with this sketch and play along here!


  • I used Stampin’ Up! Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon for the luscious bow.   Watch my 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial “Tie a Pretty Bow” here!

  • A quick “go to” punch.  I keep my Stampin’ Up 2 1/2″ Circle Punch handy for large sentiments.

  • HOT TIP!  When heat embossing, allow the Heat Tool a few seconds to heat up before setting the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  When hot, it immediately goes to work embossing vs. blowing a few flecks off course while still cool (like a fan).

  1. Mary, the card that is on the PPA challenge blog does not give this card credit! I guess it is the angle (however, when I pinned this card, I chose the angle that I liked, LOL). I have really not been interested in this set but this may be the card that has enabled the purchase! Just LOVE the gold tones and the gold ribbon flower is FABULOUS! Can you tell I love this card!!!

  2. Wow, Mary, this is stunning! I love the pops of gold.
