Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge PPA284 with Sky is the Limit!


Hi all, I’m back again with another card, but from a different challenge this time. Today’s challenge comes from and they have creative sketch number PPA284 for us, designed by team member Maggie Mata.

For this card I’ve chosen the amazing stamp set ‘Sky is the Limit’ from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The Sky is the Limit, is a Limited-Time product. If you love this set as much as I do, you’ve got until the 15th February 2016 to get your order into me, either the phone or in my online shop. I’m afraid after that date it will be gone forever. :-O

How can you get this stamp set for free? Well it’s easy, you can snap this up with a qualifying order £45 (before p&p.) There’s many other products available too! See the brochure to see them all.

The pretty star pattern paper and the arrows are both from a paper stack called Going Places which is new to the Spring/Summer Catalogue this year. When I attended On Stage in November last year, (Stampin’ Up!’s convention) we were told a little background behind these papers. The star patterns are actual constellations, the mountains are actual mountain ranges, as are the maps. Everything is taken from real life. The reverse of the papers is a marble effect in different colours, these almost look like they’ve been taken from space, but they’ve been made by dipping paint into water and swishing it about. Fun isn’t it!

Lastly before I sign off for today, I wanted to show you the inside of the card. I’ve stamped the clouds from the stamp set in the Basic Grey Archival ink pad, then added some shimmer by using the new Wink of Stella Clear brush. I’m in love with these new brushes, you MUST treat yourself to them, they are perfect when you just want to add a touch of sparkle but a pearl or a rhinestone just isn’t doing it for you. This brush is also available in gold too!

    I love the way you used this stamp set with the paper. The way you arranged the stamps and elements lends true perspective to the scene.

    I love that you used Sahara Sand instead of Whisper White for the sky. It really adds to the vintage look of the stamp set. Thanks for the info on the DSP – I didn’t attend an On Stage event, so I hadn’t heard that story! Thanks for playing along with Pals Paper Arts this week! We hope to see you again soon 🙂

    You’re take on the Pals Paper Art sketch is perfection. I love airplanes and the way you stamped it into the background looks like it’s its own DSP. Beautifully orchastrated.
