Today was another overcast day here on Long Island. I did mention yesterday that it was going to rain all week, and I think the weathermen actually got it right this time. It’s muggy but cool, so I guess that’s one plus. I mentioned that I’m moving and I wanted to get started early because I intend to not take a lot of things with me when I go. Last night began the purging. Andrew came by and we got through 25 boxes of stuff from my attic and condensed them into about 5 or 6. An impressive amount of work for one evening! But isn’t everything so much better when you have friends to do it with? The process is moving along nicely, no pun intended, and I’m much less stressed about the whole situation!
A quick bit of news from Stampin’ Up! They released a new Photopolymer Stamp Set yesterday called Calling All Heroes. It’s a fun set with cartoon like images and an alphabet to go along with it. You can see the flyer below or click HERE to download a PDF.
It’s Wednesday, once again time for my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…
I will admit, I was a little puzzled when I first looked at the sketch. I saw it as more of a suggestion for a layout, but not necessarily a sketch where the size of each element had to stay true. After looking at it that way, everything fell into place. The card base is Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and the background is a piece of Daffodil Delight embossed with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next up is one of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies. The chevrons are Blackberry Bliss and is punched out with the Chevron Border Punch. My greeting comes from the Oh My Goodies Stamp Set, is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and is cut out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. The flower is from the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set, Stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Wisteria Wonder and punched out with the Fun Flower Punch. In the middle is a Vintage Faceted Designer Button that I colored with the Medium Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker. All of the elements are adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it that extra pop. I wasn’t too sure about the Wisteria Wonder and Blackberry Bliss together at first, but after finishing the card I really like the way that they complement each other. It’s pretty amazing that the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers can color on just about anything! After all is said and done, a pretty good sketch. So there you have it, my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge, I hope you enjoyed it! Take a few minutes to stop by the blog and see the other designers’ take on the sketch. Thanks for checking out the blog today! Have a happy Hump Day! 🙂
