Pals Paper Arts is celebrating its 100th challenge in the papercrafting world and we'd like to invite you to help us celebrate this important milestone! In celebration of our 100th challenge, we're asking you to "play along at PPA" and create a card showing us your favorite technique! Distressing, watercoloring, dry embossing, heat embossing, masking, paper-piecing, just to name a few!
I couldn't pick just one favorite technique, so I picked one of my favorites...embossing! The embossing shown on my set of thank you cards was quick work with a Big Shot and the Elegant Impressions Textured Embossing Folder! Add a little faux ribbon made from DSP and a simple sentiment stamped and punched from white card stock and you have a simple yet elegant set of cards to give away as a gift or keep for yourself!
Speaking of give aways, if you play along with us this week, you not only have the chance to be chosen as a Pals Paper Arts Artist Pick, but the chance to win our huge BLOG CANDY BLOWOUT package! Each member of the PPA Design Team will be contributing to that Blog Candy Blowout package and a picture of my contribution is shown at the right. Be sure to visit the blogs of each PPA Design Team member to see what else you could win if you play along with us this week! What are you waiting for! Get out those supplies and get busy! I can't wait to see what you create!
