Heart Border Punch
Wild West Pick August 2, 2015

The Heart Border Punch is so versatile and not just for Valentine’s Day or Anniversaries.  The project today proves it!

Need a few hearts to scatter here and there?  Pull out this handy little tool and punch your heart out.  Pun definitely intended!

You have a few more hours until the BONUS weekly deals are gone. Let’s check them out one more time.  Here’s what’s left of the Bonus Weekly Deals.

Now back to the project today.Wild West Pick 2015-08-02 at WildWestPaperArts.com
The sentiment comes from Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set (#133454).  It’s a paired sentiment.  Paired meaning it includes a coordinating sentiment for the inside, like here.

Card Inside

A simple ending for this clean card.

The Designer Series Paper comes from Everyday Chic (#138445).  The little heart motif is the perfect blend.  Now for the big question.  What punch was used for the negative cut outs on the Designer Series Paper?  Well, that’s a secret unless you made a guess last week.  I’m sure you can figure it out.  Chris, you didn’t guess the pick but you’ll still get the tutorial on Monday.

Some exciting news to share!  As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator we’re able to order items from upcoming catalogs 30 days in advance.  This pre-order times is one of the reasons many demonstrators join. On Tuesday, August 4th, we’re able to order from this year’s holiday catalog and it’s a winner!  You’ll start seeing all kinds of fun samples for the upcoming holidays soon. Now THAT’s Wild!

If you just can’t wait until the Catalog goes live on September 1, 2015 to get your hands on these new toys, consider joining the Wild West Crafters group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.  You can fill your Starter Kit with pre-order fun.  By joining us, you’ll also get all the perks of be part of the Stampin’ Pretty Pals!  That includes the incredible online community of Pals.  Questions?  Email me (rae@wildwestpaperarts.com) and we’ll set up a time to chat.

Thank you so much for spending a little time with me today.  I so appreciated it.

Wild West Pick July 26 2015 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Did you make your Wild West Pick July 26, 2015 guess last week? Fun Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders made the cut.  What a great way to frame a beautiful flower that’s simple too.

The set comes with two different embossed frames.  Both are elegant and completely different styles.  The only thing that would make them better is a Framelit set to cut them out. Hope you had a chance to get them during the Stampin’ Up!s weekly deals last week.

Fun Frames TIEF #133727 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Fun Frames TEIF (#133727)

The stamp set is Butterfly Basics (#137154), colored using Blender Pens (#102845) and Stampin’ Write Many Marvelous Markers (#131264).  Need a smaller set?  The Subtles Collection (#131263) is used in this project.  No special paper required!  So much can be done with Stampin’ Up! Classic Inks.  And, so much bang for your buck when compared to alcohol markers.  A set of the most popular alcohol markers comparable to the Many Marvelous Watercolor Markers from Stampin’ Up! would cost hundreds of dollars.

Great news!  I’m almost caught up on the Wild West Pick tutorials.  You’ll have them by the end of this week.  Yahoo!

More good news… projects are under way for the Wild West Holiday Stamp Camp on September 26th.  Mark your calendars!

Hope you enjoyed the Wild West Pick this week.  Give this a whirl. So easy with fantastic results.

Make sure to come back and visit for Stampin’ Up!s Weekly Deals on Tuesday. Just one more week of the Bonus Deals! See you tomorrow.  Remember, if there’s something you really like… grab it quick!  You’ve probably noticed as the items sell out, they disappear from the current Weekly Deals listing.

Welcome to another Thursday and PPA261 Sketch Challenge with Pals.  While many of my Pals are away the rest of us will play!  Where are they?  Stampin’ Up!s Create.Inspire.Share convention.

The challenge this week looks pretty simple, right?    Maybe it’s just me but simple sketches can seem so complicated.  As usual I turned the sketch upside down, side to side, clicked my heals together and repeated, “There’s no place like home.” until something came together.

The large circle became a flower with the help of the Fun Flower Punch (#133785).  Super easy in five steps.

  1. Punch four flowers
  2. Use Sponge Daubers to apply color to the edges
  3. Use a Bone Folder to curl every other petal either up or down.
  4. Stack and adhere three flowers in the center, making sure to offset each layer, with Glue Dots.
  5. Snip petals off fourth flower.  Set aside for “falling petals” (middle circle) on the card.

Make a few in different colors to have on hand for future projects.
