PPA242 Color Challenge with the Pals

 

ppa242PPA242 Color Challenge at WildWestPaperArts.comPPA242 Color Challenge with the Pals, just in time for St. Patty’s Day, or St. Padraig in the Irish.  Garden Green, Gold and Basic Black. Perfect!

As luck would have it I developed an abscess when planning this project. YUK!  Since concentration and creativity wasn’t the highest priority, I turned to my “last minute friend”  My Digital Studio (MDS).  It has rescued me more times than I can count.

Partially created with My Digital Studio and partially with traditional paper crafting elements, this card is a “Hybrid”. Today we’ll focus on the Digital elements.

Lucky You for My Digital Studio 129930 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Lucky You for My Digital Studio 129930

This printable image is ready to print 8-1/2 x 11.  Wait, there’s more!

The best thing about this download is HOW it’s put together for you.  You can print it and go OR you can change each element to the color and size you desire.  For instance, the original green is Old Olive.  Within five minutes it was changed to Garden Green.  All of the grey letters and numbers are actually Basic Black with opacity changed. This gives lighter shades of the same color. You can also take an element out and replace it with a name or anything else you’d like.  Sure you could assemble this printable image on your own.  But why would you when the work is done for you.   Such a deal for $1.95!  Now thats wild!

The inside is all traditional stamping with some Gold Sequins thrown in for good luck.

PPA241 Sketch Challenge with Pals

 

PPA241 Sketch Challenge with the PalsHello Thursday!  Hello PPA241 Sketch Challenge with the Pals!  Nicole Watt has given us a classic design this week.PPA241 Sketch Challenge with Pals at WildWestPaperArts.co

When this sketch popped up there was no question of what materials to use. The Artisan Embellishment Kit has everything needed, to dress up this card. This card is going to my aunt in Canada so I decided not to use any of the firm, 3-dimensional pieces.  I’ll send it on it’s way with knowing it won’t get stuck in machinery.

The Artisan Embellishment Kit is different from other kits. No picture, no instructions. And no “final” project. This kit contains embellishments for finishing creations how you want. We provide the ingredients—you provide your own creativity. Kit includes:

  •  2 die-cut Sahara Sand 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) cards
  • 18″ (45.7 cm) Blushing Bride rosette trim
  • 1 yd. (0.9 m) Rose Red lace
  • 1 yd. (0.9 m) Blackberry Bliss thin velvet
  • 4 white doilies
  • 12 adhesive pearls
  • 1 large metal flower button
  • 2 small metal buttons
  • 2 clear buttons
  • 2 Blushing Bride resin flowers
  • 1 white resin flower
Artisan Embellishment Kit Item 137909 at WildWestPaperArts.com

Artisan Embellishment Kit Item 137909

 

I love the fact that I can get a kit with many different embellishments instead of buying a box of this and container of that for just a few projects.  If you’re like me you have lots of leftover items cluttering up your workspace.

Here’s how easy it is to create.

  1. Cut and score Blackberry Bliss card stock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
  2. Stamp sentiment from Butterfly Basics Stamp Set on Whisper White with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink.  Punch with Extra large oval Punch.
  3. Punch two Extra Large Ovals from Rose Red card stock.
  4. Adhere Rose Red Ovals to the back of Whisper White piece as shown.  Set aside.
  5. Adhere Tea Lace Doily to center front of card with Snail.
  6. Adhere Die-cut piece over Tea Lace Doily, Sahara Sand side up with 2-way Glue Pen.
  7. Adhere oval piece created in Steps 2 through 4 to center with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Attach small pieces of Blackberry Trim to a small piece of Rose Red Lace with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Attach a single rose from the Blushing Bride Rose Trim to the center with more Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Attach this assembly to the card as shown with additional Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  9.  Decorate the inside with more pieces from the kit and you’re done.

Now, back to the PPA241 Sketch Challenge from Pals Paper Arts.  It’s your turn to give it a whirl.

PPA241 Sneak Peek

Wednesday, hmm, kind of “Blah”.  To soon to get excited about the weekend.  To late for anticipation for the week to come.  Let’s spice it up a little. Ready for a tease?  How about two?  Tomorrow is challenge day over at Pals Paper Arts.  Here’s a PPA241 Sneak Peek.

Red Question Mark-cropped

Now about that second tease.  I’m trying something new out here in the Wild West.  You may have noticed a Wild West Pick of the Week. when the new Weekly Deals come out.  This is a fairly new feature.  However, since the Weekly Deals are published at Midnight on Tuesdays, it’s been difficult to finish a project and post up on time.

The Challenge: How can we turn this into something fun AND publish on time?

The Solution: Every week I’ll pick something from the Weekly Deals Specials.  On the following Saturday, I’ll post the answer and a project made with that item.  Here’s where the FREE Tutorial comes in. Everyone that makes a guess at what the Wild West Pick of the Week will be, right or wrong, will receive the FREE Tutorial.

Timeline:

  • Tuesday: Weekly Deals are published on WildWestPaperArts.com
  • Tuesday – Friday:  YOU guess at what my Wild West Pick of the Week will be by commenting on my Weekly Deals Blog post. Deadline to guess, Friday night, 11:59 PM Pacific Time for the current week.
  • Saturday:  Wild West Pick of the Week is revealed in a Blog Post on WildWestPaperArts.com
  • Monday:  FREE Tutorial is delivered.

Ok?  Then let’s get started.  Click here for yesterday’s post with Weekly Deals February 24-March 2, 2015. Read the first three paragraphs for instructions.

One more thing… the project is super cute, easy and perfect for Easter.  Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the PPA241 Sketch Challenge project.
