Congratulations on 200 Challenges for Pals Paper Arts

Wow!  200 Challenges is a lot of work, but Pals Paper Arts recently achieved that milestone.  They have a special challenge to commemorate this accomplishment and I really wanted to play along with them. It is a sketch challenge but there was also the requirement to make it monochromatic.  One colour plus neutrals. Here is the sketch:
I chose Crisp Cantaloupe (Surprise! Surprise!) and paired it with Early Espresso and Whisper White as the neutrals.

  • Soho Subway has that great vintage Crisp Cantaloupe/Early Espresso DSP that is the basis of the design.  I also used the more defined Early Espresso Fancy Fan design from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stacks for the back vertical panel.
  • The Lovely Romance stamp set has some beautiful vintage designs including this one, which fit perfectly on the 1 7/8" die cut circle using the Circles Collection Framelits.  I backed it with the  Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim, which for some strange reason is retiring even though Crisp Cantaloupe isn't!!  If you want some you'd better order it pronto, because items are flying off the Retired list already!
  • Express Yourself is another retiring stamp set and the sentiment, feel better soon, is one of the stamps from this set.  You can only get this one with Hostess Dollars, however, so you would need to get some friends together and book me for a private class or workshop to get it.  It's really one of my go-to sentiment sets, so it would be worth it.
  • The main image is backed by a 2 1/2" Circle punched from Early Espresso cardstock.

I will again remind you of the free shipping on all orders this whole week until Friday night (April 25).  This is perfect timing for you to get the retiring products you have been wanting less the 10% or more charged for shipping.  Items are already starting to be sold out so don't delay.  Call me, or email me your order today. Or go directly to my On-Line Store and submit an order yourself at anytime.

And if that isn't enough,  here are your weekly deals for April 22 - 28:
