Paper Craft Crew 58

Posted on

Wednesday, the halfway mark! Yeah! Work was super busy yesterday, we have lots going on and never quite enough time to finish it. The weather was warm and humid and it’s supposed to get up in the 90’s today. Summer isn’t quite finished yet, which I’m definitely not complaining about. I’m not a huge fan of winter. I was just saying to a friend the other night that if I never saw snow again I would be fine with that. I envy you Floridians! πŸ™‚

Wednesday also means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch…

PCCCS058 9-11-2013

I will tell you that I was stumped when I saw all those little circles but after spending some quality browsing time with my stamps I felt a little better. The base of my card is Chocolate Chip Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack for the lower half and the top is a piece of Crumb Cake. Some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine goes around the middle and is tied in a bow before I adhered it to the base. Two more pieces of the DSP are flagged and placed behind the greeting which is from the Joy to the World Stamp Set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. The presents are from the Wishing You Stamp Set and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler, Baked Brown Sugar and Old Olive. Some Paper Snip action separates them and they are adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake and then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think the little cluster of gifts does a nice job representing the circles and I like the fact that red and green are kept to a minimum! Thanks very much for taking some time out of your day to stop by and see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. The blog will have some more inspiration for you so you can add your project to the gallery. Have a very enjoyable Wednesday! πŸ™‚

  4. Justin – There’s definitely a lot going on in this sketch, but I really like what you did with it. Presents, presents, presents! Who wouldn’t love that? I’m putting on my decoder ring: Sunday you posted a mysterious date (September 12) as the best day ever, Tuesday you posted “Make a Wish” and today you posted a bundle of gift wrapped presents. What’s so special about tomorrow?

    • Thank you Brian! I was a little worried when I saw the sketch but I think the presents worked out well. LOL! I wonder what tomorrow could be?! We’ll soon find out! LOL! πŸ™‚
