Paper Craft Crew 206

I have come to realize that there just aren’t enough hours in the day for me! I’m sure that many of you feel that way! I try to get ahead but time just gets away! One day I’ll get it figured out and when I do I’ll share it with you! LOL! It was yet another busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I tried to get my Newsletter done, that didn’t happen. I do get quite a few interruptions throughout the day from peeps with little questions. I’m always happy to help someone out and I really don’t mind it at all! But there goes that time! We had a nice steady flow of customers, Taylor stopped up and had lunch with me. She is really into coloring lately and broughtΒ her coloring book and pencils. I FaceTimed with Andrea, we always have a laugh. After work I headed over to see Heather. He dad is doing a little better, she has been busy with him and school and work. We took a ride over to Bed, Bath & Beyond so that she could pick up some stuff. A lovely evening for a ride in my little AC-less convertible. It’s supposed to rain on and off for the next few days. That will be fun! I guilted Jessica into cutting my hair this morning. I have had enough of the man bun. I did it and now it’s time to cut it all off! After my haircut I’m going to head over to LaGuardia Airport to pick up Ken Oliver. He is teaching classes for Renee tonight and tomorrow. I like to see Ken, he’s a really nice guy!

It’s Wednesday and that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s challenge…

So I found this really cool Patterned Paper by Authentique, but I failed to write down the name! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Wildflower Honey. The background is that piece of Authentique Paper. My little pieces of wheat are cut from another piece of Wildflower Honey and Slate with the Concord & 9th Layering Leaves Dies. I adhered them to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. The greeting is from the Concord & 9th Give Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it on a piece of 48lb Vellum in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder and then adhered the Vellum to the back of the paper and then adhered the paper to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Yes, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold and some iridescent yellow sequins that I failed to write down the name of too! I do love the soft yellow and gray against the chevron patterned woodgrain and the leaves are so delicate and different! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours into the gallery! Thank you for stopping by and sharing in a little of my day! Have a wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh, Justin, what an absolutely beautiful card today. I think the wheat with the greeting really gives it a fall feel. I love that unique DSP. I would never have thought to use it with the yellows and slate. Love the bling of the sequins. I imagine this looks even better in person. Have a great day.

    1. Thank you very much HJ! I love the dies and that paper was a fun find! I love to dig through Renee’s old papers! Sequins make everything better, you know that! LOL! Have a wonderful day! πŸ™‚

  2. WOW! WOW! WOW! Justin! Yet another “knock your socks off” card! I think the beauty of this card lies in its simplicity. The color combo is both calming yet energizing. I know, that’s contradictory but it’s the only way I can explain the feeling I got from it. Needless to say, I think it’s an amazing card and thank you for sharing it.

    It won’t be a fun day today. Meeting with my insurance agent to update policies an get a grip on the costs. I hate dealing with insurance! Yet another reason why this “calming” card hit the perfect note today. LOL You have yourself a Wondrous Wednesday my friend. Love and hugs,l XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Grace! I do get what you mean by calming and energizing at the same time! I get that from it too! Yes, sometimes the simplest card can be the best! So glad I was able to give a little paling balance to your day! I hate anything to do with finances! I had a super day! Ken Oliver is the nicest guy! Love and hugs to you! πŸ™‚

  3. Gorgeous, simple yet elegant. I really like Authentique products. They have great designs. LOL, I also have a paper fetish. til grossly hot and humid here, some rain would be nice. nOt complaining though, I know Fall is heading here, and I will miss Summer.

    1. Thank you Linda! I love Authentique, they have some great papers! I think we all have a little bit of a paper fetish! LOL! It’s hot and humid here too, but I don’t mind it all! Yes, we will definitely not be happy once the fall arrives! If I find those extra hours I’ll be sure to share some with you! Hope you are enjoying the Olympics! πŸ™‚
