Paper Craft Crew 71 & More Sneak Peeks

Posted on

Remember I said it was going to snow here yesterday? Well, it did, big flakes for a while. Thankfully it only settled on the grass and not the road. Work was nice again yesterday and my boss Nancy gave me a rosary that she had blessed on her trip to Israel where Christ was anointed and also in the Church of Bethlehem. That’s a pretty big deal, and I’m not very religious and know that! I have to admit that I felt a little different after she gave it to me. I can’t explain exactly how, but I did. I also had some “tangent time” with Andrew last night, always a good time, not very productive but fun! LOL!

Today I have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS071 12-11-2013

A very geometric filled sketch so that’s what I went with. The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock and for the background I used a piece of the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper*.  My tag is created using the Angled Tag Topper Punch* and a piece of Smoky Slate with some Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon threaded through the top. The triangles and circles are form the Geometrical Stamp Set* and are stamped in Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. The circles are punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch and the triangles with the Triangle Punch*. My greeting is from the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set* and is stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits*. I thought it needed a little something more to balance it so I punched out some Basic Black with the Chevron Border Punch and adhered all of the pieces with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I don’t usually use a background that is as busy as the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper but I figured I would give it a try. You’ll have to let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Hop on over to the blog to see what the others have done and enter your card in the gallery and you could be one of our featured artists next week! Enjoy your Wednesday peeps! 🙂
