Suite Seasons For PPA 314

Stampin Up Suite Seasons PPA314 Michelle Gleeson Stampinup

Today’s card is CASE’d from the Annual Catalog using a sentiment from the Holiday Catalog launching on September 1st. It worked perfect for today’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge from Amy Lazzell.


This is a quick and easy holiday card with plenty of bling. The Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate is the star of the show. Using the largest banner from the Banner Framelits I cut the acetate. A strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive under where my ribbon and sentiment would go  anchored the acetate banner perfectly to my Garden Green card stock base.

The 1/4″ Natural Trim with Gold Metallic center was folded and kept in place with Mini Glue Dots. The sentiment will be available on September 1st when the Holiday catalog goes live, it is part of the Suite Seasons stamp set.

Sunshine Birthday Wishes for PPA 313

Stampin Up, PPA 313 Michelle Gleeson Flower PatchSunshine Wishes Stampinup

My StampinMojo came from this beautiful color palette Mary Fish put together for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week.


I have loved Flirty Flamingo from the start and Peekaboo Peach is becoming another favorite. The Fresh Fruit DSP is the backdrop – fun and flirty on its own.

Stampin Up Pals Blog Hop - Michelle Gleeson May Flowers Framelits Stampinup

This color combination of Smoky Slate, Elegant Eggplant, and Old Olive is very striking together. The Irresistibly  Floral DSP is the  back drop or my flower. Using a Sponge Brayer I added Smoky Slate until I achieved the color depth I wanted. The May Flower Framelits made creating this beautiful flower a snap. I strongly recommend using the Precision Base Plate, Magnetic Platform, and Die Brush for these framelits. A few brush strokes of of the die brush makes the flower drop right out of the framelit.

I added a piece of retired Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon.
