Things are chugging right along here. Thankfully it’s Wednesday and we are halfway through one of the busiest weeks I’ve had in a long time. From now on when I say I’m busy (with crafty things), I’ll appreciate it more. LOL! It was another nice day here today. Work was work, as usual. Our favorite moving assistant Andrew was back over last night and more boxes were packed, papers shredded, and purging accomplished. I started to pack up my stamp sets. They have so far filled 2 36-gallon totes. I think I may have a problem. If you may suffer from the same problem, call 1-800-2MNYSTMPS. LOL! On an even sadder note, there’s probably another full 36-gallon tote to be filled.
It’s Wednesday, and that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
An interesting sketch, don’t you think? For my card I started off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack on the top and to keep it simple, a plain of piece of Blushing Bride on the bottom. To hide the seam, I stamped a piece of Baked Brown Sugar with the Draw the Line Photopolymer Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar. The greeting on the center panel is from the Age Awareness Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo on Whisper White and backed with a piece of Blushing Bride. The “Celebrate You” and cupcake both come from the Cupcake Party Stamp Set. The “Celebrate You” Is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits. The cupcake is stamped in Blushing Bride and Baked Brown Sugar and punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch. To finish off the card I punched out a piece of Island Indigo with the 1″ Circle Punch and adhered 3 stars from the 2013-2015 In-Color Sequin Assortment. All of the elements on the card are propped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the way that the greetings from the Age Awareness and Cupcake Party Stamp Sets coordinate. It makes for easy stamp set collaboration. Not to mention, I really like the font. And there you have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Take a little time and head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with the sketch and don’t forget to enter your card in the gallery!
