I know it’s Wednesday today, but to me it feels like it should be Thursday or Friday. LOL! It’s been quite busy here on my blog the past few days. Two blog tours in a row and a sort-of double post yesterday. Not that I didn’t love every minute of it, as you know. And I hope you got lots of inspiration and some ideas on how to use products from the new catalog. Weather here was gorgeous again today. On a fun note, the Democratic National Convention is being held down the street from where I work. Traffic should be horrendous for the next two days. Gotta love politics, right?! LOL!
Wednesday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…
I know you are going to be thoroughly amazed, I managed to use only one stamp set for this card! My card base is Tangelo Twist Card Stock. The background is a piece of Whisper White, I used the Chevron Border Punch across the bottom and stamped one of the images from the Hello Love Stamp Set in Lost Lagoon. The bird on the arrow and the sun are also from the same stamp set and are stamped in Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist. I used my trusty Paper Snips to cut them both out. I punched out a piece of Hello Honey with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch to go behind the sun and the bird and I adhered them all to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Up top is a piece of Hello Honey punched out with the Banner Punch and a heart punched out of Lost Lagoon with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack is popped up on top of it. Hello Love is a fun set that has a bunch of different elements that all go nicely together. Now that I think about it, I also used three of the new In-Colors. And there you have my bright, fun, cheery card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! The blog will have some more samples from the rest of the Design Team to inspire you to create a card to add to the gallery. I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek inside the new catalog and as always, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a happy Hump Day!
