Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge

Happy Thursday! Welcome to the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge. We'd love for YOU to play along by creating using our colors:

These colors were hard for me! Can you tell which color I love best? Pool Party! Even the name is great! I began with a Whisper White card base and a layer of Primrose Petals card stock. Over that I layered a Pool Party piece of card stock that was embossed in my Big Shot using the Stripes Embossing Folder. (I always want to call this the "lines" folder?) I layered another piece of Whisper White embossed card stock to "hold" my images, which are from the Spring Sampler stamp set in the Spring Catalog. They are framed using the Silver Soda Pop Tops! They are so shiny--I just love them. To add more texture to my Primrose Petals images (rainy cloud, rain boots and umbrella) I colored them with Dazzling Details and let them dry before punching them out with my 1" circle punch.

The tag that is added at the bottom of the card and tied on with Pool Party Baker's Twine is stamped in Craft White using the Pretty Petites Stamp Set and Primrose Petals card stock, then embossed with White Embossing Powder. I used the Petite Curly Label punch to punch it out perfectly. The stamp set and coordinating punch are from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. 

Where is the REAL RED, you ask? I colored the little heart on the tag with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker! 

I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by! To order your Stampin' Up! supplies, please use my website. Don't forget I have some gift cards for sale!

Embossing folders seem to be very popular for this challenge, and I love the horizontal lines it creates on your card. Just enough texture!
