Hi all, I’m back again with another card, but from a different challenge this time. Today’s challenge comes from PalsPaperArts.com 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!
Thank you for visiting me today, I’m here as always if you need any ordering help or product advice. 🙂
