PPA159: Love Life Card

The card today took some work for me to get just the way I wanted.  I tried several color schemes and various DSP combinations before settling on what you see above.

The card front was inspired by the Pals Paper Arts Challenge (#159).  This is a multi-layered sketch that offers a chance to get very creative.

As I am prone to do, I created my own background paper to coordinate with the card.  All of the stamps and DSP came from the Cottage Garden Kit.  I love the saying and just had to find a way to use it.  I used the coloring tool to coordinate the colors of the saying with the rest of the card.

For the inside of the card I repeated the background of the front and added a simple sentiment.  The banner design of the "celebrate" stamp is why I put a banner on the front of the card, as well.  Celebrations are a great way to show our love of life. I can't wait to share this card and show what I love.

Supplies: Cottage Garden Stamp Brush Set, Cottage Wall DSP, Simple Stitches #5, Cake & Ice Cream Stamp Brush Set, Flag Punch, Square Punch

Announcing the Color Refresh! I love all the different colors that SU! offers, but it is also important to stay up-to-date with the latest trends. I am thrilled to share the updated line of colors, and hope you will be as excited by the new possibilities as I am!

The upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalog will include 10 new colors (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)! They are welcoming back some of your favorites, moving some colors around, and introducing one brand-new color, so take a look!  Also, starting April 4th, all retiring and discontinued color products will be sold while supplies last.  So, stock up now on your favorites before they are gone.
