Paper Craft Crew 202

Happy Hump Day peeps! Another fun day was had at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! In the morning I ran out with Renee’s boyfriend John to get some more hooks, I have run out and used most of Renee’s extras! Oops! When I got back to the store Renee had her Kid’s Class where they made a fun little pocket book. Everyone had a nice time and pizza was enjoyed for lunch! Around 2:00 I got the text that I have been waiting for! I’m an Uncle again! Tristan Shelby Krieger made her way into the world! She was 9lbs 8oz and 21 inches long! Here she is…

Tristan Shelby Krieger

With her uber chubby little cheeks! I think she is wondering why they put that hat on her! LOL! Her big brother Daniel is happy as can be and I reassured him that he is still my favorite! We played with his trucks when I got to my Parent’s and I got a big hug and a kiss and a I Wub You Untle when I left! Last night I went over and spent some time with Brian and Kim. We watched Me Before You, what a sad movie that was! It was good but really sad! By the time I got home from there it was 11:00 and time to start to think about calling it a night! Today I have to get ready for this month’s Card Class featuring Reverse Confetti! Fun!

After a week off we are back over on the Paper Craft Crew blog with their week’s challenge…

I sort of went down the first row! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of My Colors Copper. I partially heat embossed the Hero Arts Irregular Grid Background Stamp onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and then used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Soft Pink Ink. I had seen Yana Smakula do a similar thing with a card a few days ago and had to give it a try! The background is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All of my images are from the Hero Arts Color Layering For You Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flowers in Bubble Gum, Ultra Pink and Raspberry Jam and the leaves are stamped in Green Apple Hybrid and Lime Green. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts and adhered to the card with Foam Tape and E-Z Runner with a few loops of Natural Twine tucked underneath. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Copper Embossing Powder onto some Solar White 110lb, the left side is flagged and then it too is adhered to the card with Foam Tape. A couple Pretty Pink Posh Marigold and SIP Copper Sequins are added and the card is done! I do like that funky background, makes for a nice change don’t you think?! I hope that you like my Design Team Card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your in the gallery!

  1. Congratulations, Uncle Justin! What a precious and beautiful little bundle Tristan is! And I love your card. That background frames the flowers perfectly.

  2. Tristan is a very beautiful baby. Daniel will be your favorite nephew and Tristan will be your favorite niece. Your card is wonderful with that unique but lovely background stamp in copper. Great job on the flowers. Have a great day.

    1. Thank you HJ! Yes, that is true! But Daniel has such a unique personality, it will be hard to top him! LOL! Glad that you like the card! You have a fabulous day! πŸ™‚

  3. Welcome, Tristan! What a beauty! Thanks for sharing her photo and stats.
    Pretty card today. Love & Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Thank you Nancy! I’m happy that I get to share fun stuff with you guys!
      Glad that you like the card! Love and hugs to you too! πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Justin! I had to wish you great, wonderful, terrific congrats on being an uncle again. So happy for your whole family. I’ll still get in to see you one day!!!

  5. Oh my – poor Erika. She ended up being greatly rewarded with that beautiful baby girl but boy, she must have had a hard time delivering such a big baby! Tristan is just gorgeous and I bet her big brother will just love her to pieces. I bet your brother and parents are thrilled, especially your Mum. Now she gets to buy baby dolls and little frilly dresses. Congratulations to the entire family. This is just amazingly wonderful.

    Was it by happenstance that you created the perfect card for parents of a beautiful new baby girl? I think Erika would just love this card oozing with pink. Definitely a card that the Mom of a new baby girl would love to receive. Now your brother has a little girl to eventually walk down the aisle. It’s so exciting.

    Hazy, hot, humid again today and tomorrow with thunderstorms forecast for tomorrow night. I keep telling myself that September is coming with all the beauty of fall leaves, crisp mornings and beautiful colors. Next week I am headed to NH to help a friend who just had back surgery so I will be off line and have to play catch up. I sure hope she has A/C or I will be very uncomfortable. It is always hotter in southern NH than it is here in Maine. You have yourself a joyful, thankful day Justin. Love and hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. LOL! Yes, I would think that might hurt a little! Thank you Grace! She is a little butterball! Daniel is quite pleased with her! My mum and dad couldn’t be happier! Mum does love to buy baby girl clothes!
      It was just a coincidence that the card was very fitting for the day! I knew that she was having a girl, even thought they didn’t want to know! Ahh, Jason now has a little girl that will eventually date! He he!
      It has been humid here too but I really don’t mind it at all! I know you can’t wait for Fall! I hope that your friend has AC or that will not be a good time for you! That’s very nice of you to go and help her! Think cool thoughts! Hope you had a nice day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  6. It’s a beautiful cards and such a delicious little girl. Congratulations to the family. Your cards are always great and I look forward to seeing them every day. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Congrats Uncle Justin and to the rest of the Kreiger family!!! She is absolutely beautiful! Those little checks are too sweet! Your card is just awesome and love the colors! xoxo

    1. Thank you very much Sue! She does have nice chubby cheeks! Glad that you like the card! Thank you for all of your help all of the time! XOXOXO πŸ™‚

  8. Wow!! What a fantastic card, Justin! The sponging on top of the embossed background is beautiful and I love the copper EP. I just got some Rose Gold EP in my last SSS order and am anxiously looking forward to using it this weekend. The twine accent and the pop of green all make your card a stunner!

    If I could be a late owl like you, I think I would get more done crafting wise. As it is, my work weeks don’t leave me as much time as I would like to craft so everything gets saved for the weekends (amidst all the other “adulting” chores that have to be done). LOL If I got motivated to start crafting at 4 AM on the days I don’t have to commute to my office (other than my home office), that might help. Although it’s kind of hard to get motivated creatively so early in the AM as I’m usually up and immediately getting ready for work. Hmm… maybe I should do all of my normal AM stuff and get dressed as if I’m going to work and just “commute” to my craft room until the start of my work day. As it is, I normally sit down to read for a bit, make a smoothie and watch some of my DVR’d shows since that is the only time I have to catch up on them.

    P.S. Congratulations on your niece – she’s absolutely beautiful!!!

    1. Thank you so much Christy! I am really loving the Copper EP! A nice change from Gold! I need to get some Rose Gold Sequins ASAP! LOL!
      It’s funny how I can get more done in a few hours at home as opposed to what I can get done all day at the store! I do find that I need to craft everyday, keeps me very happy! I definitely find it hard to get up in the morning and make something! 4:00AM would be a little early unless I hadn’t been to sleep yet! I would definitely skip the TV shows and craft instead! Let me know how that goes!
      Thanks! She is a cutie! πŸ™‚

  9. Congrats! She is beautiul and very alert fr a newborn. what a beautiful name. And yes they all are your favorites right. i tell all my kds that they are the favorite

    1. Thanks Linda! It’s a very different name for a girl! I tell Taylor she is my favorite daughter, but she’s the only one! LOL! Glad that you like the card! πŸ™‚
