PPA8 Challenge

The PPA 8 challenge was for a KISS card - clean with lots of white space; simple design; minimum time to create; limited layers and embellishments. Here is my card for this challenge:
I had a template for cutting out the tree, which I cut out of a piece of To the Nines DSP. I then used the Buttons #5 Sizzlit Big Shot die. I cut the buttons out of Always Artichoke and Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and To the Nines and Pumpkin Pie DSP. I adhered the buttons with glue dots or Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment was from an older set, and I attacheda couple pieces of ribbon using a staple. An incredibly quick card to make that was super simple, and I love how it came out.


  1. Wow! I love this card! I like how you used the Buttons Sizzlit die. Just perfect! Thanks for playing @ PPA!

  2. This is so cute, Kelly! Great colors and great job with the challenge!

  3. On behalf of the Pals Paper Arts design team, thank you for playing @ PPA!

    Be sure to join us for our next challenge on Thursday, September 24, 2009.


Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
