Paper Craft Crew 112

Posted on

I do enjoy a Wednesday, it’s the halfway point and after the day I had yesterday I’m glad to be that much closer to Friday. Work made up for all of the pleasant days that I have had by being just annoying. We have good days and bad days, that’s just the way things work right?! I ran Heather over to her catering job to pick something up after work and then had dinner. I did get a call from my friend at the Apple Store yesterday telling me that he had an iPhone 6 for me to pick up. My friend Kim in the city wanted one and she is on my plan so I headed over and picked it up. I also stopped at BestBuy to get her a case and a screen protector. Now to get it to her, because once the new phone is purchased the old one gets shut off! My friend Chantal to the rescue! I went and dropped it off at her house and Kim will go over to her office and pick it up tomorrow. It was a very involved process to make it all come together but it did in the end!

When I did my post yesterday the Tuesday specials from Stampin’ Up! weren’t up yet so here they are for you today…

If it’s Wednesday that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for our sketch challenge for this week…

PCCCS112 Sketch 10-01-2014

It looked vaguely familiar to me so I decided not to use the speech bubbles again. I started off today’s card with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock and on top of that is a piece of Basic Black. The top panel is a piece of Tangerine Tango and I stamped one of the images from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on it. My pumpkins and leaf are cut out using the Fun Fall Framelits. I cut one of the pumpkins out of the pane and one from Crushed Curry. The leaf is cut from a piece of Sahara Sand. Before I adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I tucked a piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper behind the negative pumpkin and I stamped the greeting from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit in Memento Tuxedo Black. The other pumpkin and leaf are adhered with more Stampin’ Dimensionals and three black enamel dots are secured in the lower right corner. A fun and different Halloween card don’t you think?! That’s my interpretation of this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch. Stop by the blog and see what my fellow Design Team members have done with it and let’s see what you do too, upload you card to the gallery! Thank you for coming by to see me today, I hope that you enjoyed the card and that you all have a the best Wednesday in recent memory! 🙂

  1. Great job Justin! I REALLY like your card. I like how you used the designer paper behind the pumpkin!!! You are so creative. I like how you think. Happy Wednesday!

  2. Hi Justin! Happy October! Love your card! I especially love the square shape. I need to make those more often! The dsp peeking thru the pumpkin is adorable! Great interpretation of the sketch too. Hope you have a great day today!

    • Hello Karen! A very happy October to you too! I like a square card every once in a while! Glad you enjoyed the card! Hope your day was fantastic! 🙂

  3. love this cutie card ! Love it !

  4. Hi Justin:

    You are really on a roll here! Love the way you did the cut out and the DSP
    behind it couldn’t be more perfect! I absolutely love this card and your presentation is just fabulous. Sorry yesterday wasn’t the best of days but you have to have some bad ones so that you appreciate the good ones when they come. Peek foliage season is almost over here. Very early this year. I didn’t even get a chance to take any foliage photos this year. Looks like “wintah” is coming early. Drats! LOL You have yourself a Wonderful Wednesday – Friday is close at hand! 🙂

    • Hello Grace!
      Why thanks very much! I love the Fun Fall Framelits and I like using the negative of them! I know that every day can’t be good, I do try to make them the best that I can but sometimes everyone else just overpowers all of the positive that you have. I do appreciate every day, I’m lucky in most aspects of my life and yes, it does make me appreciate everything more! I hope that you are wrong about Wintah!! Let’s try to keep it at bay as long as we can! My day was good at the end, hope yours was a good day all around! 🙂

  5. Who doesn’t love fall….well maybe not everyone but I do. And……I love your card! Fun and simple. Like the leaf and pumpkin used without any stamping. Leaving it a blank canvas letting the DSP shine thru the negative of the pumpkin. Aren’t those ‘splats’ from Gorgeous Grunge wonderful……they can be used in so many ways.

    • I like the colors Lisa but you can keep the cooler weather! Glad you like the card! I thought that the DSP needed to stand out so I left the other stuff blank! Yes, Gorgeous Grunge is just a great stamp set! Love it! 🙂

  6. love the card, especially love the dsp behind the pumpkin, cheery!

  7. Today my Friday, I’m off for the next two days, Yes! I am so happy. Probably won’t accomplish half of what I wabt but its so nice.

    Cule, clever card, love the cut out pumpkin with the DP, geat take on the sketch
