I may need an intervention to keep me away from the amazing papers in the pack of Picture Perfect Party 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers. I love the photographic papers in this pack – and the colors and patterns on the opposite side are pretty great, too! I couldn’t stay away as I made this quick-and-simple card for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for Donna Mikasa’s sketch challenge that inspired my simple card:
- Party Fun. Oh, the fun you can have with the products in Stampin’ Up!’s Picture Perfect Party Suite – paper, stamps, inks. This suite has it all! Click on this photo to see all of the items in this suite: While the confetti-filled Picture Perfect Party 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is the star of the show on this card, the project actually started with the Tailored Tag punch. I wanted to showcase the punch, so I found a sentiment that fits on it. “Cue the Confetti” – a gorgeous mix of print and script font – was perfect! I couldn’t help but to pair it with this amazing paper. Here’s a look at the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set:
- Wink, Wink. I’m no fan of confetti or glitter – I adore the shine and color of both, but I heartily object to the mess they typically create. Why, then, does this project feature both? Well…the confetti is obviously contained on this printed paper. Love that! I thoroughly applied shine to this Berry Burst band with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. The sparkles dry into the paper – and done! This isn’t the kind of glitter that will rub off on everything you own – and it looks great! Take a look at how shiny (and clean) this band is:
- Versatile Shape. As I mentioned above, this card started with the Tailored Tag punch – I love this fun hexagon shape! One of my customers said that she wouldn’t need the punch because she doesn’t send Father’s Day cards (the punch is bundled with the True Gentleman Suite). If you think like her, I encourage you to consider all of the sentiments you can nestle inside this fun shape – it’s certainly not limited to the stamps it’s paired with in the catalog. Here’s a look at the Tailored Tag punch:
Stamp Sets: Picture Perfect Birthday Papers: Picture Perfect Party 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst Inks: Archival Basic Black Accessories: Tailored Tag Punch, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the CAS(E) This Sketch site (the challenge will be live at 10AM EST) to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today!
In April, Stampin’ Up! is hosting OnStage Local events for demonstrators all over the world. One of the local events will be local to me – here in Atlanta, Georgia! I’m hosting a Spring stamping event the day before OnStage – and I’m calling it Brian’s Spring Stamp-Along. This event will be Friday, April 6 at Cobb Galleria Centre. I’d love for you to join us!
Registration for the Spring Event will open today to a limited number of demonstrators – and the day will be FILLED with fun. I can promise some inspiring presentations, super-fun games, a high-quality swap and make-and-takes like nothing you’ve ever seen. The event will mirror the World Card Making Day events we’ve hosted the last five years.
