PALs Paper Arts Inaugural Challenge!


Here is the inaugural challenge of PPA, PALs Paper Arts! This week's challenge is a color challenge and boasts two of the new In Colors, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. I wonder if the water in Bermuda is this color? That would be cool!

I used the stamp set Baroque Motifs along with my favorite tool the Stamp-a-ma-jig. I love the bold, crisp images this set gives.

I rounded the corners opposite each other using the Corner Rounder punch. I've seen this look in a number of places and I really like it! I also paper pierced the top right corner which is very easy to do with Stampin'Up!s Mat Pack. My phrase is set in an Oval Holder from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware.

HINT: I used Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the Oval Holder. The Stampin' Dimensional sheets always have partial pieces along the edges. I always cut these up as well and use them. My Stampin' Dimensionals last a long time!

Play along with this challenge! Create a card using these three colors, take a picture of it. Post it on your Splitcoast Stampers gallery (here's the link to join Splitcoast) or post it on your blog. Go to PPA and there you will find Mr. Linky where you can post a link to your picture! Easy as pie?! Contact me if you need help with any of this.I hope you enjoy this challenge. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

God Bless,
