A good Sunday morning to you all. I had a nice crafty Saturday and today with be laundry and clean the house day. I’m thinking that I will have liked Saturday better than Sunday this weekend! Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew. The blog is in the the process of being revamped and they will have a launch at the end of October. I also have some really exciting news. The owner of the blog, Pam, has asked me to be a member of the design team! Well, I can tell you that I was a little happy to hear that! For my first week playing we have a sketch challenge…
A nice simple layout and I decided to mix some old with some new. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Soft Suede with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. A piece of Comfort Café Designer Series Paper is mounted to a piece of Pool Party and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals for the next layer. I used the Border Banter Stamp Set, stamped in Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit, and some Very Vanilla to crete the flags. A piece of Summer Starfruit cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlits die is the placed behind the images from the Artistic Etching Stamp Set. They are stamped in Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit. The large lacy circle is cut out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and the crown and amour are cut out with my Paper Snips. They are all mounted to the card with Stampin Dimensionals. I like the mix of the softness of the Comfort Café DSP with the graphic nature of the Border Banter. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge card. Don’t forget to head on over to the blog and see what all of the other talented designers are up to.
