Happy Birthday for Pals Paper Arts #289

The Pals Paper Arts, under the direction of Lynn Hoyt, have a fun color challenge this week that I just had to try.  I had used two of these colors in a recent challenge and wanted to try another card with a new die cut I’d just received.  Here is the color pallet we were to use:

I didn’t have the exact colors but think I’ve come pretty close.  I’m not sure the photo shows that some of the panels (the green ones) are raised a bit using foam tape.  The foam tape worked best for giving a smooth solid strip.   Here is my card:

Project Materials

Paper:  Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding, Midnight Muse–Stampin’ Up

Die Cut:  Coverplate:  Horizontal Stripe–Papertrey Ink

Sentiment:  a last year’s Paper Pumpkin inclusion–SU  

Ink:  Night of Navy–SU 

Embellishments:  Color Dots–SU 

Using the coverplate and inlaying the pink and green strips made this card quick and clean.  I like the simplicity and the two color dots add just enough texture.

Please leave a comment if you can, and stop back again soon.  There are more great cards to see at  Be sure to check them out.

  1. Very sweet card. I love the idea of using all of these strips and popping them off the paper! Thank you for joining us this week at the Pals Paper Arts Challenge!


  2. Sharon, these were perfect substitution colors and I love the way you chose to display them. This card is great for all ages as well as gender. Love the addition of the candy dots. Thanks for including the PPA color challenge in your stamping fun this week. Hope to see you in the gallery often!
