PPA256 Times Three


Happy Saturday, peeps!  I haven’t played with the Pals Paper Arts challenge for a while, and when I saw their sketch, I knew just what a wanted to do!  I loved Linda’s use of the new Greetings Thinlits, and I love ALL the new DSPs, so I went to work!


I am always in need of quick little thank you cards for my customers, so I made some 4.25” square cards to tuck in with their orders.  The first one uses bright papers from the Schoolhouse series; the “thanks” was diecut in Garden Green twice and glued together, then I added stars in Pool Party, Garden Green and Tangerine Tango:

This one uses the same line of papers, different colors; I cut out two “hello” diecuts, one in white and one in Pacific Point, and staggered them for a different look, then added a little flower with a pearl center:

I punched out the centers of the e and the o, just for fun:


Lastly, I went for a subtle neutral look using the papers from Timeless Elegance and Tip Top Taupe, heat embossing a sentiment from All Boxed Up on a vellum banner and mounting on top of some Jute ribbon and adding a punched heart:

I just can’t decide which one is my favorite!  Which one is yours?

Cassidy & family went to a new Greene Turtle restaurant in Bel Air, MD, for dinner and had her picture taken with their mascot!  Check out her boots!


Be sure to come back tomorrow for our next Paper Players challenge, too!  Enjoy your day!
