Paper Craft Crew 215

As planned I did have a very productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! Despite the fact that I had to keep going outside to experience the gorgeous “Summer like” weather! It was in the 80’s! Yes please! I managed to get two cards made and get a host of administrative things accomplished! Taylor stopped by with her friend Marissa again and they kept me company for a while. After work I had a little stew that my Mum had made for me and finished my laundry. Then it was home to find out the my Keurig died! Ugh! I love my Ninja Coffee Bar but when I want a quick cup I still like the Keurig. I made myself an Americano in the Nespresso instead and that was delicious! Think I have enough coffee makers?! This morning I’m running into Manhattan to help my friend Ella with a few things and then Sue is going to pick me up by the train station near the store and help me cut for class! Busy day!

After a week hiatus the Paper Craft Crew challenge is back this week with a theme…


The card base for today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Kaisercraft Mademoiselle Collection 12×12 Paper. Down the left side is a strip of American Crafts Gold Glitter Tape. My coffee cup is from the Hero Arts Coffee Cup Stamp & Die Combo and is stamped in Hero Arts Vintage Metallic Rust Ombre Ink. The whipped cream is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Puff Embossing Powder and the sleeve stamped in Cup O Joe with the greeting heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. Myย leaves are from the Hero Arts Grateful Leaves Stamp & Die Combo (it really is one of my faves!), the leaves are stamped in the Ombre Ink with the veins heat embossed in Gold. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out all of the images. A piece of May Arts Natural Twine is tied in a bow toward the top of the cup and I usedย a combination of Fun Foam, E-Z Runner and Thin 3D Foam Squares to adhere it to a tag that I cut out from a piece of Kraft using the Hero Arts Infinity Tags Dies. The reinforcement is cut from some Chinese Red and another piece of May Arts Natural Twine is tied through the hole. More Fun Foam and E-Z Runner adhere the tag to the card. I added a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the whipped cream and a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Sparkling Clear Sequins complete the card! I really do enjoy that Grateful Leaves Set don’t I?! Almost as much as I love the Ombre Inks! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Theme Challenge!

  1. Justin, this is a great take on the challenge. I love the ombre coloring of the cup and leaves. The puffy EP must be so much fun. I’m putting it on my wish list! That list is longer than a child’s list for Christmas!! lol! I love you made this as a tag with the red reinforcement makes me think of original tags. So many neat elements to this card. You are king of details! I’m also loving this warm weather. You are probably getting some top-down drive time, which is rare this time of year. We’ll take it anytime we can get it, right? Take care. Have a wonderful day, my friend. Hugs to you.

    1. Thank you HJ! The Vintage Metallic Rust and Autumn Ombre Inks a re great and compliment each other so well! I do like the Puff EP, just enough but not too much! LOL! Welcome to my world! I thought that it needed a little pop of color and the red reinforcement seemed to work! I really have so much fun coming up with cards and it’s so cool that I get to hear what you all think of them! The weather was great, it’s gone here. Bummer! Maybe we will get another reprieve?! Hope you had a fantastic day my friend! Hugs back to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It was a beautiful day yesterday! I made sure to get my 10,000 steps in outside while the sun was still shining! I think Indian Summer is my favorite season of all!

    Now about your card–it’s spectacular! Despite the problem you had with your Keurig (was that inspiration for the card?) your creative mojo is really on fire this week, Justin! And there’s that ombre ink again! I can’t wait to pick it up when I am at the store on Saturday! Have a great day!

    1. Yes Linda! I loved it! I do enjoy the nice warm days after a few chilly ones, makes you appreciate them more!
      Thank you! I’m always thinking about coffee! LOL! Can’t wait to see you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Love it! That embossing powder is so much fun. Out Indian sumer is over, back to 60’s and 50’s. Take care…..

    1. Thanks Linda! Yup, love that EP! We are still warm here but it’s overcast today. Oh well! ๐Ÿ™‚
