Marquee Messages

PPA309Oh…school is out (well, classes are done) and I have some extra time!  I wanted to do a little stamping today and decided it would be fun to join a challenge.  There’s a really fun color challenge on Pals Paper Arts and I just couldn’t resist joining the fun!

The colors are Sahara Sand, Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum.  What fun!  I decided my Marquee Messages set had sat uninked long enough and it was perfect for the colors AND som fun paper piecing!

Here’s the details…

  • Sweet Sugarplum – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, stamp the sparkles using Sweet Sugarplum, Island Indigo, and Sweet Sugarplum.  Layer until Island Indigo 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Sahara Sand – stamp main image using Basic Black Archival, cut out, stamp the arrow on Island Indigo and the  bottom banner on Sweet Sugarplum, cut out and add to main panel.  Stamp you are both on the Sahara Sand AND on Whisper White, cut out and add to letters.  Stamp the stars on Whisper White, cut out and add.  Add the Marquee to the card front using dimensionals.
  • Color in the lines down the side using Island Indigo and Sweet Sugarplum.
  • Add the very smallest  Basic Pearls around the arrow to finish off.

  1. Mary, OMGosh… this set looks spectacular in these colors. I don’t have that set and probably won’t… but you have just made it ever more enticing. Thank you ever so much for playing along with my color challenge this week at the PPA. Really hope to see you more often in the gallery!

  2. Your card totally “pops” Mary! Love your use of the pearls on the arrow! Thank you for joining us this week for the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge!

  3. What a great set for this color challenge! I love your little sparkles too. Thanks for sharing with us at PPA this week.
