Paper Craft Crew 96

Posted on

Ahh… Wednesday, halfway there people! Yesterday was a another gorgeous day, sunny and warm. We did get a little rain last night, but that’s fine. I came home after work and had to make some cards for Danielle at work. Two Father’s Day and one Birthday. I’ll post them sometime next week after they are given to the respective recipients! As an added bonus Andrew stopped by, it was nice to catch up with him. The fundraiser has kicked into high gear and I think he said that we have 72 baskets so far! Pretty impressive! My new Catalog order should be here tomorrow!! Wee!! I know, I have no patience, I had to talk myself out of next day! LOL!

It’s Wednesday so it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge. Here is this week’s sketch…

PCCCS096 Sketch 6-04-2014

Today’s card uses all new products from the new 2014-2015 Catalog! I started off with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock and my background is a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. The tag is created with the Angled Tag Topper Punch from a piece of Mossy Meadow and I used the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce around the edge. My flower and greeting are from the So Very Happy Stamp Set, the flower is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the Blossom Punch. I sponged some Crushed Curry Ink in the middle and used my Bone Folder to curl the petals. The greeting is heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits and pierced again with the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack. My hearts are punched out with the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from Blackberry Bliss. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I keep saying how much I like the paper in the Moonlight DSP Stack because there are so many different patterns as you can see from this piece and the green tag really makes the flower pop right off the card, too. So that’s my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! Go over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with the sketch and show us your creativity by adding your card to the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

    Wonderfully cheery card! Your cards are making me like the new Blackberry Bliss! I love the Mossy Meadow from the start! Your background print from the Moonlight Stack goes perfectly with the open outline of the flower. Thanks for sharing all of your inspiring ideas!!

    • Thank you Beth! I do love the Blackberry Bliss and I;m not a huge purple fan. The Mossy Meadow is growing on me. I do love the Moonlight DSP, there are so many great patterns! Have a lovely evening! 🙂

  10. I give up, how do you keep kicking our gorgeous cards daily, Your brain must never shut off.

    I love this card, the colors are gorgeous together, I really like the subtle stamping in the center of the flower. And the hearts, (My fav shape) as an embellishment, awesome. I need to remember that idea

    • Thank you Linda! I do think about crafting a lot, maybe that’s it?! LOL! I love the center of the flower too and yes, the purple hearts are really fun! Enjoy your evening! 🙂
