Well, it’s been a few hours since my last post! LOL! I had the Control Freaks Blog Tour last night featuring products from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. If you missed it and would like to see the cards and take the complete tour click HERE! Yesterday was gloomy and rainy until about 2:00pm when the sun came out, a nice way to finish the day! Work was loads of fun, I had some people come in to have their signatures captured and of course the equipment wasn’t working so I had to figure out how to fix that, no surprises there! I came home and had dinner and then realized that I had the aforementioned Blog Tour and I had no projects so into the Stampin’ Galley I went and made my cards and then typed the post with 15 minutes to spare! Ahh… pressure! Anyway, sometimes it’s the best way to work!
So for today, since it’s Wednesday, I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
When I sat down with this sketch the other day I knew exactly what I wanted to do! Love that! The card base is Whisper White and measures 5″ x 5″. The background is a piece of the NEW Watermelon Wonder Card Stock with a piece of Whisper White on top of that. Across the bottom is a piece of paper from the NEW Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. I adhered some Whisper White 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon around the back and made a bow with it too. All of the images and greeting are from the Snuggles and Smooches Photopolymer Stamp Set. The squiggly flower is heat embossed on Crushed Curry with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The LOVE is heat embossed in the same on Vellum and both the circle and the vellum are tucked behind the DSP. Another sliver from the DSP is adhered with Foam Tape on top of the ribbon. My greeting is stamped in Watermelon Wonder and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and also adhered with some Foam Tape. I used a “Vintage” Paper Clip clipped to the vellum and one of the hearts from the set stamped in Watermelon Wonder and punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. A little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen is brushed over it for some sparkle. Finally three enamel dots are adhered in the upper left. I really am loving that DSP aren’t I?! LOL! I t really does have some cool patterns in it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Make sure that you stop by the blog and see the rest of the design team’s projects! Thanks very much for your visit today! Enjoy your Wednesday my friends! 🙂
