Happy New Year! I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and are off to a great start in 2014! 2013 was a challenging year for me, to say the least, and I’m looking forward to starting fresh. I have many resolutions for the New Year that involve enjoying life and reducing stress. So, naturally, that should mean more dedication to cardmaking and crafting!
Pals Paper Arts is definitely off with a bang in 2014 with a color challenge to use this gorgeous color combination: Island Indigo, Gold and Whisper White.
Island Indigo is one of my favorite colors… so much so that I’ve bought clothes, sandals and nail polish in that exact color! The nail polish was a real stretch for me because I’ve never used anything but “traditional” colors.
It’s especially nice with this big, fabulous stamp from the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set. I love ALL of the stamps in that set. It has a wonderful variety of sizes and cool fonts.
One of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge (used with Gold Metallic Ink) was great for filling in white space, and a great backdrop for the butterflies.
I hope you’ve been inspired by today’s card and that you’re ready to get creative in 2014! Join us at Pal Paper Arts to see the projects our Design Team, including our new Resident Artist, Michelle Gleeson, have created to get you going! We’d love to see your creation in our gallery.
