The Pals Paper Arts challenge this week is to design a Monochromatic card using any shade of blue. I’m very jazzed that Pacific Point is making a come back in July so for this challenge I rummaged through my stash of Stampin’ Up! goodies and found a couple of sheets of Pacific Point card stock and ink pad.
DO IT YOURSELF TIPS!
· Don’t have any Designer Series Paper in your favorite color? Use background stamps and an ink pad to make your own! It’s easier to ink up the background stamps if you lay the stamp down on a flat surface with the rubber side up and dab your open ink pad onto the rubber. You can save yourself some supplies if you only ink up the part of the stamp that you are going to use.
· Rub-Ons are a nice alternative to using stamps and ink. I’ve found that stapling the sheet of Rub-Ons and the backing together helps keep the Rub-Ons from sticking to each other and making a mess. I store my Rub-Ons in a plastic shoe box size container with a lid.
