PPA106 and Gently Falling

It's another Happy Monday! I'm really looking forward to this week as I will be sharing Holiday Mini Sneak Peeks every day this week. What fun! Today's Sneak Peek project was designed for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge.

The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is a theme, Dress for Success. "Dressing for Success is easy as 1-2-3 this week at Pals Paper Arts.  Follow our simple recipe to success:  Use 1 piece of designer series paper, 1 punch and 1 sentiment.  Like our feline friend, your card will be best-dressed!!"  Isn't this the cutest kitty ever that the Pals gave us for inspiration? I don't think my Oreo was ever that tiny!

This card features three products from the about to be released Holiday Mini Catalog.The new Spice Cake Designer Series Paper is just fabulous and features the colors Pool Party, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, River Rock and Pear Pizzazz. The Gently Falling Stamp Set is a two-step set, my favorite kind! First you stamp the background color and then the outline right over it. Velvet Stitched Ribbon in Very Vanilla (yum!) is the perfect embellishment.

Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Gently Falling (available Sept. 1), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Soft Suede
Designer Series Paper: Spice Cake (available Sept. 1)
Ink Pads: More Mustard, Soft Suede
Tools: Ticket Corner Punch, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig
Accessories: Very Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon (available Sept. 1), Regals Buttons, Early Espresso Bakers Twine

May I celebrate with you a bit? My entry to the PPA challenge last week, above, was a Pals Paper Arts Artist Pick Winner! There is nothing more satisfying than being acknowledged by your peers. Thanks, PPA Design Team, you made my day! To see the original post for this card, click here.

Great fall theme card! I just love fall, so I'm always attracted to anything with a fall theme, especially leaves. Congratulations on being a Pals challenge winner this week.
