Pals Paper Arts Challenge #49 & Happy New Catalog



Play at Pals PaperArts! Our challenge this week is to make a project that is inspired by the Fireworks Photo above. Of course most would think of Fourth of July, but what do YOU think?

I began with the *new* core color, Cherry Cobbler--available for customers TODAY!! I built a Whisper White frame on top of the card and then added a sparkly night sky of fireworks on top. I used the stamp set July Fourth.

The sparkle was accomplished by stamping the fireworks using Versa Mark and Heat N Stick Powder. After heating it with my heat gun, I added Dazzling Diamonds and heated it once more so the glitter would stick and not be too messy.

For the sentiment, I stamped in Night of Navy right onto the Whisper White panel, then flanked that with Cherry Cobbler stars and a Night of Navy small oval stamped with a sparkler in Whisper White Craft Ink. I framed the small oval with a Cherry Cobbler oval punch. Isn't it spark-tacular???

Please leave your comments--I love to see who has visited! Have a safe holiday and I hope you will have fun seeing all of the new Stampin' Up! products that debut today! I will be using many of them in my upcoming projects.

If you would like to purchase our new Idea Book and Catalog from me, please email me and I will send it to you for $9.95 including shipping.
