It was a little on the chilly side here this morning and it drizzled most of the day. It did manage to finally clear up by the evening and the sun did peek it’s head out for a bit. I had a somewhat lazy evening, I messed around in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit and ran a few errands but other than that it was a quiet evening. I do have something fun to share with you today in addition to my card. I love when you are kind enough to share some of the things that you are working on with me. We had Grace’s quilt and now our friend Donna has sent me some pictures of her multi-media projects that she has done! There are three different canvases, one has a picture of her adorable granddaughter, one is a small one (purple) and the last one is a beach. I think that they are just fantastic! It makes me want to finish the one that I started a few weeks ago! So here are Donna’s canvases for your viewing pleasure!
Aren’t they awesome!! I really like all of them but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the beach one! You can feel the warmth from the sunset and almost hear the waves and smell the salt air! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us Donna! I really appreciate it!
It’s Wednesday right?! LOL! Well, that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…
When I saw the sketch I wasn’t going to take it literally and then I thought that I could have some fun with it! I started with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is a piece of Basic Black and I heat embossed the “Vintage” Off the Grid Stamp in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Next I heat embossed the Dictionary Background Stamp in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla. The greeting from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set is also heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Word Bubbles Framelits to cut them out and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My stars are Gold Foil Sheet that I punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and they too are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the end I’m glad that I did stay true to the sketch, I had fun using all of the heat embossing and love the simple Vanilla, Black and Gold together! Well, I really hope that you enjoyed the pictures of Donna’s multi-media projects and my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see they other designer’s projects and let’s see what you come up with. Enter your project in the gallery! Thank you very much for coming by and I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday! :-)
