Paper Craft Crew 98

Posted on

It’s getting a little hotter here and it was definitely more muggy today, but it was sunny and beautiful nonetheless. I keep saying it, but anything is better than the polar vortex. Work was productive and I even got to go on a little field trip which is always a good thing. When I got home last night, Andrew came over and we tackled a ton more packing and threw out a bunch of stuff! Tonight is painting, provided that I get the key. Fingers crossed! LOL! I also settled on a color, can you take a guess as to what it is?

It’s Wednesday, so that means I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew for our sketch challenge this week…

PCCCS098 DT Sketch 6-18-2014

I used the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack for my color inspiration on today’s card, strangely, I didn’t use any of the DSP. LOL! The base of the card is Mossy Meadow Card Stock and for my background I used the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die and a piece of Daffodil Delight. I find that a piece of wax paper in between the card stock and die makes removal much easier. The foundation for my flowers is a piece of Pistachio Pudding that I cut out with the Banners Framelits and for some extra pizzazz I put some Gold Foil Sheet across the top of it. All of the images and greeting are from the Flower Patch Stamp Set. I used Daffodil Delight for the large flower, Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush for the smaller flowers and the leaves are Pistachio Pudding and Mossy Meadow. They are all cut out with the Flower Fair Framelits. The greeting is stamped in Strawberry Slush and I used a standard hold punch to make the ticket corners. The greeting and the large flower are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the fact that the Flower Patch Stamp Set is photopolymer because it makes the two step process very easy (on the small flowers and leaves). Even though the Striped Scallop Thinlits are a lot of work, they really add a nice touch to the card, so I think it’s worth it. There you have my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge. Take a few minutes to peek at the blog and see what the other designers have come up with. I would like to see your take on the sketch, so please enter your card in the gallery! I thank you for coming by today and wish you a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin! LOVE your card! I think that the Flower Patch set and matching framelits are the best! I love your take on the sketch and added the scalloped thinlit to the base of your card. So pretty! This is another of your cards that just makes me smile looking at it! Bright and cheerful! Happy painting tonight (if you get the keys)! I’m guessing you went with bermuda bay or coastal cabana? Not sure which room(s) you are painting though. You might need to give us a picture of that when you’re done with the painting. 😉 We’ve had some stormy weather here this week and they say it’s not done yet. Hope it settles down soon. Have a great Wednesday!

    • Hello Karen!
      Thanks! I think the Flower Patch and matching Framelits is a fun set! I’m glad the card makes you happy! I love the Striped Scallop Thinlit! Yes, the paint color is a little lighter than Coastal Cabana! I think just the living room for now, but I don’t think it will happen tonight, I still have no key! I will definitely take pics when I’m finished! It was really hot here today and we are supposed to get rain tonight. I hope you had a good day! 🙂

    Very nice card. Love your color choices and that Flower Fair set is beautiful. Good luck painting. 🙂

  3. Thanks for posting a project using the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die! I couldn’t quite figure it out just from the pic in the catalog. 🙂 Looks very funky.

  4. I agree with Janet …I was not too taken with the Striped Scallop . It looks like fish scales to me ,but I like how you used it . Cute and eye catching card ! Hope your painting plan works out !

  5. Love the card….it’s so fresh and bright! I was wondering about the Striped Scallop thinlit….I like it, but I bet it’s a pain to use! Even so, I’m sure I’ll break down and take the plunge. Happy painting tonight.

  6. Hi Justin – I love the Happy Blooming Birthday stamp, actually I love the entire Flower Patch set. First of all because of the images and second because it’s photopolymer and (1) so easy to use and (2) clean up with just a touch of water – ta da! You’re card today is another one that the second I saw it brought the word “happy” to mind. I mean really, you just have to smile at that color combo. Great job!

    Good luck with the painting – now we can’t guess what color until you tell us what room you’re talking about. Also, I think if I move again I’ll have you and Andrew come help me. You two are obviously very, very good at purging. LOL Have yourself a Whimsical Wednesday!

    • Hello Grace!
      I have to admit that I am a big fan of the whole set too! I love when I make happy come into your mind! That makes me happy! 🙂
      I didn’t get to paint because I didn’t get the key until 8:30 and it was a little late by then. 😦 I will be painting the living room and bedroom. I have to purge, I can;t live with any clutter anymore, well, except my craft clutter! LOL! I like whimsical Wednesday! I’m going to use that next week! 🙂

  7. HI Justin! I love this card. I’ve seen you use that Scallop Framelit before and each time it looks great. I had some issues with the Hexagon one and SU had to send me a new one, so I hesitate to get the Scallop. However, each time I see the way you’ve used it, I’m rethinking. I don’t have this set yet, but it’s on my order for this month after my stamp camp. The colors you chose are great and I really love that new DSP stack, and the Moonlight one as well. Have an awesome day. Oh and paint color? Hmmmm…. depends on which room I guess but I would think you would choose a neutral for your main living space, but only because your cards are so much brighter! (weird thinking I know). Baked Brown Sugar? or Lost Lagoon? 🙂

    • Hello Bobbi!
      Thank you very much! I really do like the Striped Scallop Thinlit! I find that as long as you use wax paper it works just fine. The Flower Patch Set is great and the Framelits make it even better! Yes, both of the stacks are super! LOL! I like the way you think for my paint colors but I choose a brightish color for the living room. 🙂

  8. Louise (ON, Canada)

    Cool card and very cheerful. I read somewhere someone used an adhesive sheet and waxed paper with that die = instant solution to adhere to CS . I will have to find this again. Too bad you got the key that late but there is always tomorrow, as they say. Have a good night.

  9. LOL Yep I’ll take this humidity over the polar vortex any day. You are painting in Lost Lagoon right? Or Blackberry Bliss, OK Baked Brown sugar. Cute card, liking that scallop die more and more, not much of a fan at first

    • Ha! Absolutely Linda! No more Polar Vortex ever again thanks! I did consider Lost Lagoon, but I thought it would be too dark. Blackberry Bliss would be too much purple, Baked Brown Sugar might actually be hie though! Love the Striped Scallop Thinlit! 🙂

  10. Hi Justin,
    I agree, I will take the heat and humidity, any day over the polar vortex!! Today was a hot one, but I enjoyed it!
    Love the card! I really like the striped scalloped thinlet, it adds so much to your card! The Blushing bride and Strawberry Slush go great together!
    I have been so behind on my emails, I just caught up with todays! Being at the beach on Saturday, which was a perfect day!, has thrown me off of my daily routine. I am not complaining at all! It truly was a great day! Just my sister and I went to the beach, so it was nice and quiet!
    Can’t wait to hear all about your new place! And to see what paint color you choose!
    Hope your Wednesday night was a good one!

    • Hello Donna!
      That definitely seems to be the general consensus, no more Polar Vortex! Than you! I do like that Striped Scallop, gives a really nice texture! Love the colors in the DSP! As you can see I’m a little behind on things too. The move is tang up a lot of time! I’m so glad that you had a nice day on Saturday! I will be painting tonight! Yeah! 🙂

  11. Hi Justin! I’m a few days behind in my internet browsing, but I just have to say I LOVE this card.. the entire card, color scheme, flowers and greeting! I had to leave a message even though it’s late because it’s just wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us!
