Hello everyone! Did you enjoy the Control Freaks February Blog Tour yesterday?! I thought it was great! Such amazing projects all made with supplies from the Spring Catalog. They should help get your creativity flowing for a bit. Now for your weather update! LOL! It was really cold and windy here all day yesterday and it’s supposed to be cold today and windy too so more of the same from yesterday. Oh Spring… where are you?!
Today I have my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for you. It’s a day late due to the tour yesterday, better late than never! This week we have a sketch for you…
There are some nice layers on this one and I wanted to use some old and some new so here is what I came up with. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a simple piece of Early Espresso. On the top part is a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack that is part of Sale-A-Bration. A small square of Early Espresso is on top of that to the right and there are three white Neutrals Brads in the right corner. Next up is a strip of Summer Starfruit that I stamped in Early Espresso with the Amazing Accent Stampin’ Around Wheel. The circle is a piece of Whisper White that I punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. For the flowers I used the World Treasures Stamp Set and stamped them in Summer Starfruit. The greeting is from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set that is also part of Sale-A-Bration and is stamped in Early Espresso. A piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is adhered around the back of the Summer Starfruit piece. I used a Naturals Designer Button and a white brad from a recent clearance rack purchase that I cut the legs off of and adhered to the button with Mini Glue Dots on the top of the button. Under it is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the teeny butterflies from the Itty Bitties Stamp Set in Early Espresso and punched out with the Jewelry Tag Punch. I like the way the mix of patterns from the paper and stamps works together and I love the colors. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog and see what my teammates have come up with and enter a card of you own for me to take a look at! Thank you so much for taking some time to visit me today. I hope you all have a glorious day! 🙂
