Paper Craft Crew 201

So I made a little boo boo yesterday! I titled yesterday’s post Paper Craft Crew 201 and not SIP Challenge 54 when I did it Monday night! Yeah, that’s what I get for trying to work ahead! LOL! I had just uploaded my Paper Craft Crew card to the Design Team site and that is what I’m blaming the incorrect title on! So, today is the Paper Craft Crew 201 post! YAY! I think that I’m back on track but you never know when I may get derailed again! With all that I have going on it’s surprise me that I remember how to get back home at the end of the day! Anyway, yesterday was a good day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store… Hero Arts arrived, well, most of it! I love the new Ink Cube 4 Packs! Such cool color combos and they make the Color Layering Sets nice and easy to use! I got them entered and hung up! Renee’s Home Decor class was fun! All of the peeps really liked their projects! I will remember to take a picture… today! 😛 I left the store at 6:30 so I could get home in time to see my little buddy Daniel! He was extra cute, my parents got him some new trucks and he showed them all to me and how they worked and what they did! Such a smartie! After I had a little dinner I headed over to get Heather so we could do a BJ’s run. I needed stuff for lunch and she needed to pick up a ton of chicken wings to make for her sister’s block party this weekend. We stopped at George’s to drop off the chicken, he had more room in his fridge, and then went back to Heather’s and binge watched some YouTube videos! Today I have Lawn Fawn and Notions coming and I think that my buddy Sue is going to come up to the store to help! Wee!

Let’s see… Wednesday… ahh yes… I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog (got it right!) for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS201 DT Sketch 6-29-2016

I started making this card while I was at the store and finished it when I got home Monday night! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front in a piece of Desert Storm 80lb. Using one of the Lawn Fawn 4Bar Stitched Rectangles I cut out a piece of paper from the Carta Bella Beach Day Line, the Beach Ball Bash 12×12 piece. I heat embossed the greeting in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The ice cream cones and the greeting are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the cones in Soft Brown and Cup O Joe and the ice cream is stamped in Soft Vanilla and Butter Bar with the solid image stamped again over the top using Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. They are then cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts along with the cherry that is stamped in Red Royal. The cones are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and the ice cream and the cherry, that I added some Glossy Accents to, with Foam Tape. In the upper right is a piece of Daffodil Delight that I flagged, a red button has some random Baker’s Twine tied into a bow and then the flag is adhered with more E-Z Runner and the button with a Glue Dot and done! I love that teal woodgrain paper and the clear heat embossing really gives some nice texture to the ice cream! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! This one runs for two weeks so you have plenty of time to head on over to the BLOG and enter your card in the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting with me today! I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

  1. Good Morning Justin:

    Love the way you clear embossed the “ice cream”! Now I want some even though it isn’t even lunch time yet! What a fun card and I know my little great nieces and nephews would just love it. I have a hard time making cards for the little ones but this set would be perfect. I could even add some “sprinkles” on the cones for them. They would love it!

    You are such a busy, busy boy! I need to make an effort to do more because I feel guilty after reading all you get done in a single day. Wish you could find a way to sell me some of your energy! LOL You have your self a wicked good Wednesday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thanks! I love the way that a little clear embossing can give such great texture to something! I wanted ice cream the whole time I was making this card but I was good! LOL! The stamp set has some sprinkles and even a few chocolate chips! I think anyone would like an ice cream card!
      I am a very busy boy but I do enjoy all of it! If I could share some energy I certainly would with you! My day was pretty fantastic, hope the same holds true for you! XOXO 🙂
