Paper Craft Crew 55

Hello peeps! Welcome to Wednesday! How is your week going so far? Mine is super busy, between work and home I need a few more hours in the day please! Thanks for the comments on the Control Freaks Blog Tour from yesterday! I’m so happy that you enjoyed the projects, they were a lot of fun to make. I also saw that Stampin’ Up! repinned my one layer card from Monday! Woo hoo! That was a very nice surprise. 🙂

I almost forgot to tell you about the new Photopolymer Stamp Set that was recently released by Stampin’ Up! It’s called Another Thank You and it has some really great thank you’s in it. There is also this really cool one that covers a whole card front! You can see it below and If you want a PDF click here.


In addition to the new Photopolymer Set we have some new SIngle Stamps for the Holidays. There are eight including some that coordinate with Punches and Framelits along with a large star that I think is really cool! You can see the flyer below and click here for a PDF of it.


Today I have my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS055 8-21-2013

I’m liking the slightly askew look lately. You would think it would be easier that putting things on straight but I don’t find that to be the case! The base of my card is Garden Green Card Stock. I inked up the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with my Brayer and some Smoky Slate Ink. After I ran it through the Big Shot it had a really nice weathered look to it. The main panel is the Dictionary Background Stamp stamped in Smoky Slate and backed with a piece of Garden Green. I stamped the coffee cup from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set in Garden Green and cut it and the sleeve that is stamped in Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder out. The ticket is from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set and is also heat embossed and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. The little corner is punched out with the “Vintage” Photo Corner Punch. All of the elements are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three Regals Candy Dots complete the card. I really love the way the inked embossing turned out and will definitely do that again! Thank you so very much for taking some time to come by and see my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch. Head on over to the blog and see what my other teammates have done. Don’t forget to enter one of your creations for us to see! Have a very enjoyable Wednesday!
