Paper Craft Crew 57

Wow! Wednesday already! Missing that Monday is just the best isn’t it? I had a nice day at work today, got a lot checked off my to-do list. Came home and tinkered at the craft desk for a bit. I got a lot of my stuff done over the weekend so it’s nice to just sit and mess around with ideas and see what happens. I do end up with lots of pieces, but they will eventually make it on to something. The weather here was rainy and overcast with some humidity thrown in for good measure. Last night it started to feel a little more pleasant, we might even be able to have the windows open again!

Today, being Wednesday, means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge. This week we have a tilted sketch for you…

I kept pretty true to the sketch this time, just changing up the main shape a bit. The base of the card is Pool Party Card Stock, I left it plain so the middle panel would really stand out. Speaking of the middle panel, The top half is a piece of Pear Pizzaz stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Pear Pizzaz. My World Map Stamp is stamped in Pear Pizzaz for the bottom half and across the middle is some Baked Brown Sugar that I cut with the new Stampin’ Rotary Trimmer and the Small Scallop Blade. I mounted it all to a piece of Baked Brown Sugar.  A little piece of Pool Party that I flagged and stamped with the Notable Notions Stamp Set is tucked under the scallop. The main images are from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set. The top one is stamped in Pool Party and punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. The bottom one is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies. Two “Vintage” 3/16″ Metallic Brads are on either side. A very Vintage Designer Button with some Pool Party Card Stock threaded through and three Subtles Candy Dots complete the card. I really love the World Map Stamp and the colors on the card are really neat. Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see the projects my teammates have come up with. Don’t forget to enter one of your creations in the gallery too! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Absolutely stunning! I love everything about this card – BUT – I especially love the piece in the center with the map paired with the Pear Pizzazz paper that has been Gorgeously Grunged. All of these colors work perfectly together.

  2. Gorgeous card. I had to come to your blog to see what was in the middle of that button! Clever! And of course I see something I absolutely MUST have soon: the small scallop rotary blade…LOL
    Enjoy the day! Beautiful here in Southern Ontario

  3. OOOOOH! So refreshing! I like the way you used just a small section of the map. I learn so much from you. Thanks again. Have a terrific two days at work this week! Nancy B

  4. A perfect card, Justin! The colors, the stamps, the message all work together so beautifully–I don’t think you could make a bad card if you tried!! Thank you for inspiring us.
