Happy Wednesday everyone! It was a little bit nicer around here weather wise yesterday, a tiny bit warmer which was appreciated! Nancy was back from LA and she gave me a video of Sam getting his first Grammy from where she was sitting. So cool to see it from another angle! Yesterday was another quiet night. Taylor came by and I made a few cards. I also made sure that I would have a little time to just sit and relax for a bit. See, I’m making an effort to do that more! Tomorrow I have a bunch of meetings at work, not my favorite way to spend the day. Oh well, soon it will be Friday! 🙂
We all know what Wednesday means… I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch…
I went with a simple, subtle card. Yes, it could be a Valentine but it doesn’t have to be! LOL! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Sahara Sand that covers the entire front. On top of that is a piece of Very Vanilla, I used the “Vintage” Stampin’ Spritzer and my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to get my spatter. A piece of Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace Trim is adhered around the back and the panel is then adhered to the card with Fast Fuse. I heat embossed a piece of Vellum with the Something Lacy Background Stamp and some Blushing Bride Stampin’ Emboss Powder. One of the Labels Collection Framelits cuts it out and some Multi-Purpose glue adheres it to the lace. My greeting is from the Crazy About You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Blushing Bride on a piece of Sahara Sand. I used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack and the Simon Says Stamp You Die to cut out some Blushing Bride. I used the same technique as I did the other day to heat embossed them multiple times with Simon Says Stamp Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder. The heart is adhered with a Glue Dot and the you with some Multi-Purpose Glue to the greeting which is then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really do love the way the clear embossing give the die cuts an epoxy look all nice and shiny! I hope that you liked my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge.
