Play with PPA #135

Happy Thursday! It's time to Play with the Pals! Pals Paper Arts has the talented Margaret Moody to provide us with monthly sketches. This one looks simple, but I found it kind of hard to get going with! Let's see what you can do with it!

I used the *new* Summer Starfuit Stampin' Write Marker to color and dot the center square for this sketch. For the ends of the "Kindness Matters" banner I used a stamp from the set of the same name. I stamped onto Whisper White using *new* Summer Starfruit (available June 1st) ink and then carefully used paper snips to cut around the design, one for each end.

The *new* Stampin' Pads that are Firm Foam rather than our previous style, are so juicy! You don't need to press hard and you can cover those thirsty stamps a whole lot quicker! I really am enjoying using them so far. The new Stampin' Pads will be available to customers on June 1st. It's only about two weeks away!

The layer underneath the sentiment is also *new* Summer Starfruit card stock that I ran through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The designer paper I used is from the new "Floral District" which is also available on June 1st.

It doesn't look like this gave you any trouble at all! I love the butterflies and the embellishment looks great on the sentiment.
