You Made My Day – PPA 233


Today’s post is another Sneak Peek of what’s to come on January 6th when our new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs go live. It’s also my entry for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week – which at first site was a doozy! The end result, however, ended up being quite simple.


The bike is from our sweet and wonderful new stamp set Sheltering Tree.

I stamped the bike with Blackberry Bliss and then, without re-inking, continued to stamp to the left three more times. Before stamping the bike for the third and fourth time, I huffed on it to remoisten whatever ink remained on the stamp. The end result was a graduated color which hopefully emulates the bike’s movement.  Did it work?

punch boardThe dimensions of this card are 8-5/8″ x 3-3/4″ to accommodate the space needed to show the bike’s movement. Here’s a great opportunity to make the envelope with our Envelope Punch Board!

The DSP strip on the left is from a new DSP stack, Painted Blooms.  It coordinates with a new floral stamp set, Painted Petals, which is beautiful!!!!

Note: This is a Photopolymer stamp set. As such, it requires a clear block. I used Clear block “D”.

The new items aren’t listed below.  After the 6th I can list them with the product number and cost.

If you are interested in hosting a Stampin’ Up! event or if you’re interested in becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I’d love to hear from you!
