Good morning! How are you all today? I always get better as the week goes along because we are getting closer to Friday! We are supposed to have some nasty weather later on today. They are saying high winds and 2 – 5 inches of snow. Sigh… I would like no more snow please! Sometimes they are wrong, I would like this to be one of those times! 🙂
Wednesday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge. This time around we have a fun sketch…
I wanted to mix some of the old with the new and that’s what I did for this card. The base of the card is Pool Party Card Stock. The background is created with the En Francais Background Stamp inked up in Summer Starfruit and stamped onto Whisper White. The strip of card stock across the top half is Soft Suede that I embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the main image I stamped the script from the French Foliage Stamp Set in Summer Starfruit and then the Eiffel Tower from the Artistic Etchings Stamp Set in Soft Suede. The Oval Collection Framelits Dies are used to cut it out and a piece of Summer Starfruit to back it with. I used the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit to cut out a piece of Pool Party and I adhered all of the pieces together with SNAIL and then to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flag is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set in Soft Suede and cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies. Before I adhered it to the card I flagged the end of a piece of Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon and tucked it underneath the Soft Suede strip. One of the Soda Pop Tops is adhered with a Mini Glue Dot with another image from the French Foliage Stamp Set stamped in Soft Suede and punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. The greeting is stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Sometimes I get so caught up in the creating that I forget how many different products I used until I go and write the post! I used a lot on this one! It has a somewhat clean vintage feel to it and I love the colors together. I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge. Don’t forget to go to the Paper Craft Crew blog and see what my fellow DT members have for you this week. As always I would love to see one of your cards in the gallery! Thank you far taking some time out of your day to visit with me. Have a great day! 🙂
