Hello Wednesday! How nice to see you again! We are halfway there peeps! Yesterday was another nice day weather wise and a calm day work wise. A pretty good day all around. My friend Danielle needed two mother’s day cards and a birthday card so I came home and made them last night. One of them was the Stippled Blossoms card from the Creation Station blog tour and the other two are throwbacks from a while ago. I’ll post them later in the week. I’m so glad that I keep my stamp sets, never know when I will have to pull one out of the archives!
Wednesday means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
I was going through one of my many craft drawers the other day and I came across the fun stamp that I used on today’s card. I got it at Convention last year. It’s an original Shannon West creation! My card base is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. On the bottom half is a piece of Epic Day This & That Designer Series Paper. I used some of the new Fast Fix Adhesive to adhere some 5/8″ Crochet Trim, pleating it as I went across. The greeting, which I mentioned before, is stamped in Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla and backed with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. The flower in the top left is Calypso Coral cut out with the Blossom Party Originals Die. In the middle is a Neutrals Designer Button. The flowers in the lower right are also Calypso Coral punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. Some Basic Jewels Pearls are in the middles and also along the side of the main panel. The neat little bird is from the Nature’s Hello Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip and cut out with the Backyard Basics Stamp Set. A pretty cool layout with a little bit of a vintage feel to it. And there is my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch. Be sure and stop by the blog to see the other designer’s creations and add your one to the gallery so we can take a peek at yours! I always appreciate your stopping by and I hope that you all have a very nice Wednesday! 🙂
