Paper Craft Crew #40 & Sneak Peek

Yeah, Wednesday! Halfway there to my Friday! How are you today? I’m pretty good. I went to my friends Brian & Kim’s house for dinner last night. We had vegetarian tacos that were yummy. I got to see the little angels too! It was a very nice day here yesterday and is supposed to be nice for the next ten days! Ahh, finally some warmer weather.

Today’s post – Paper Craft Crew Sketch #40

PCCCS40 Sketch 5-01-2013

I’m having so much fun playing with my new goodies! I hope that you are enjoying your sneak peeks too! The base of my card is Pear Pizzaz and the background and the pieces of paper cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits are all from the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper Pack*. A Delicate Doily is behind the flower that is from the Happy Flowers Host(ess) Stamp Set*. The large flower is cut out with the Floral Frames Collection Framelits and the center is punched out with the  1 1/4″ Circle Punch. The stem is stamped on the DSP in Pear Pizzaz and the butterfly is from the Best of Butterflies Stamp Set, stamped in Night of Navy and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. The greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy. Some Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and some Rhinestones finish off the card. I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch and you sneak peek! Thanks so much for taking some time to come and visit me, have a great day! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! released a new Photopolymer Stamp Set called Birthday Bombs Away! There are some great greeting and they will work well for any type of card. You can see them below or click here for a PDF of the flyer.

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Breaking News! Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
