Thank You Buds - PPA214

I am so excited to share with you that I have been selected as a Resident Artist with the Pals Paper Arts design team! A call was put out for applications a few weeks ago so I gathered my courage up and submitted my name...and I was one of three picked to round out both design teams to 11 members each! Woohoo! I can wait to get started so let's do it!!

The design team has a super fun color combination this week:

Aren't the colors yummy??  I couldn't wait to get started designing! I pulled out a new stamp set called Hey There Buds and started coloring with my Stampin' Markers...

Thank You Buds - PPA214

The stamp set actually has the sentiment "hey there" but since I was inking the stamp up with markers, it was easy to just not ink up that sentiment and choose another one. I chose a lovely font for my thank you sentiment and stamped it with the new Memento Black Ink the crisp stamp image and the easy clean up-no special cleaner needed!

I added this piece of pattern paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack (only $6.95!) that I have been oogling and saving for just the right card...and today was the day! I added just a small strip of Wild Wasabi cardstock to really help everything 'pop'. And of course we need jewelry, right? I love the three sequins in Crisp Cantaloupe but somewhere in the design process I realized that gold would go well with this color palette so I add some gold sequins as well and love the result!

Thank you for stopping by!
