It was another nice frigid day here yesterday in New York getting us prepared for all the snow we’re supposed to get tonight. They’re saying anywhere from 3 to 10 inches of snow again and I say this better be the last one! LOL! Remember my friend Danielle came over recently and made up a Valentine’s Day card for her boyfriend. Well, not to be outdone, her sister, Stephanie, came over last night to make one for her boyfriend. She asked for a little guidance but she worked mostly on her own. Here is what she came up with…
Pretty good for a first try! She said that Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder reminded her of tire tracks.
It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. This is what we have for you this week…
My inspiration for my card comes from the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. My card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. The background is a piece of Smoky Slate that I embossed with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Some Gold Foil Sheet is punched out with the Triangle Punch and adhered down the left side of the card. I used the Starburst Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Bermuda Bay that serves as a backing for my “love” which is cut out from more Gold Foil Sheet using the “Vintage” Expressions Thinlits Dies. Two flagged pieces of the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper peek out from behind the Starburst on the right side. I find the color combination to be a little bold but I do like the gold accents. I also realized after that I made the card, there isn’t a single stamp on the card! I hope that you have enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Remember to head over to the blog to see what the other Design Team members have done with the sketch, and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your take as well! As always, I appreciate your visit. I’m off to Brooklyn later on tonight to see Andrew perform with Satellite Lane. Hopefully the snow will wait to start until we come home! Have a happy Hump Day! 🙂
