Paper Craft Crew #36

Well this week is moving right along! How is it going for you? Work is insanely busy for me and has been for a while. hopefully things will slow down soon. Today I am working from 8:30am until 11:00pm, that’s a long day! The weather was chilly and windy here again yesterday, it’s supposed to be cold until Thursday and then it’s supposed to finally warm up. Spring, not so far around here!

Today’ post is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. This week we have a nice sketch with the possibility for some layers…

PCCCS036 Sketch 4-03-2013

I have been really into Pool Party lately, it is definitely one of my favorite colors. It works great as a neutral and looks nice with so many different colors or can easily stand on it’s own. For the base of my card I used Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is a piece of Pool Party that is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The paper in the middle is from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper Pack. A piece of Silver Glimmer Paper is on the left and I punched a piece of Pool Party with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Basic Jewel Pearl in the middle for the little flower. The main panel is a piece of Pool Party that I embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed it with a piece of Basic Gray. For the stamped image I choose one from the Circle Circus Stamp Set and stamped it in Pool Party and punched it out with the 1 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. It’s mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I put a Basic Jewels Pearl in the center. The greeting is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party. I use the Decorative Label Punch to punch it out and adhered it to the card under the main panel with some SNAIL. Three more pearls are adhered under the DSP on the left to finish off the card. I really love the colors and the glimmer paper gives it just the right amount of sparkle. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge. Check out the other design team projects over at the blog and upload one of your cards for me to see. Thank you for taking some time to see what I’m up to and I hope you have a lovely day!

    I LOVE this card. The design graphics are great…(shapes and details). I agree, Pool Party was a “nice invention”. It compliments so many colors. You again created a FAB card. Thank you for sharing it!
