Banners with New DSP Prints for PPA256

PPA256PPA256 is a new sketch challenge featuring banners.  I could have chosen another image for those three banners, but I have been wanting to mix and match some of the new color family DSP Collection prints released in the 2015 – 2016 annual catalog by Stampin’ Up!  So far I have only purchased the Neutrals and both In Colors collections.  But it won’t be long before I have all of the color family collections.  I absolutely love the new designs… stripes, large dots, small floral and cursive words (my favorite!).

KatyMcGloin256After cutting quite a few banners in various colors, I chose three different designs in three different colors… Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede. These colors provided the soft color scheme that I wanted.  The Whisper White card stock was dry embossed with the new Brick Wall textured impressions embossing folder.  Did you know the sentiment “friend” from Awesomely Artistic stamp set fits perfectly within one of those bricks?  Love it!  I added Blushing Bride sequin trim along the top and a few loose sequins around the sentiment.  I have been using tiny glue dots to add my sequins (after being disappointed using Tombow liquid adhesive).  However, with this card, the sequins were placed where I wanted them and Crystal Effects was added to the top to cover the tiny sequin hole.  I love the little bubble of sparkle with the sequin!  However, I did find out on another card that you have to be careful squeezing the Crystal Effects.  You will see that card soon enough… ouch!  The Blushing Bride medallion image also has a little Crystal Effects on it.  Additional pictures…


Have you been by Pals Paper Arts to see all of the Design Team members projects?  I am certain you will find some inspiration there.  We would love for you to play along this week.  You can visit this challenge blog by clicking HERE or on the challenge picture above.  Hope to see you in the gallery this week!

Have fun stamping,

    Oh, Katy, this is wonderful! I didn’t order the dsp yet and I desperately want it as well as the brick wall. I love the string of sequins and the pretty medallion on top of the pretty papers!

    Katy, that Brick Wall is really popular today! I love that you stamped right on it. Also love your sparkles along the top!

    Love the banners and glimpse at those new prints! The sequins made a great top layer and I am inspired to break out my Brick EF! 🙂

    Wow! Katy, this is so beautiful with perfectly done details!! I have one pack of the new DSP but need to collect them all. The sequins, used as ribbon, is genius! Crystal Effects and I don’t seem to get along too well but may have to try your tip with sequins. I love this card and am now off to pin…
