Paper Craft Crew 228

Oh, the rain decided to stick around for another day, and I’ll say it agin, better than snow! Renee and I had a productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. She cut out lovely titles on the Cricut and I made some cards and did a lot of paperwork! I had text Andrew in the morning to tell him that I missed him and he came over last night with Pizza! We got all caught up! Isn’t it great when you have friends that you can just pick up where you left off with?! I also fished catching up with This is Us so I can watch yesterday’s episode tonight when I get home! Today, I’m off to Manhattan! Going to see my friend Ella in the morning and then head down to The Ink Pad to visit my friend Anna! I need a city day! ๐Ÿ˜€

Wednesday and time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I wentย nice and simple with lots of stamping! I cut a piece of Solar White 80lb to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and heat embossed the circles from the Concord & 9th Love you, Mean It Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder twice. Using my ruler and a pencilย I drew two lines down the card to serve as a guide for where I wanted my stamping. All of the images are from the same set and are stamped in Soft Pink, Soft Lilac, Red Royal and Lime Green. I erased the lines and then used the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card. A little Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive adheres it to the card. All that was left to do was to adhere the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock!ย I love the simplicity and the cascade of flowers, they were so much fun to stamp! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s card and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for coming by and visiting with me! Have a lovely Wednesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Nancy! I did have a fun day in the city! It was nice and sunny and not too cold! Hope that you enjoyed your day too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Love this clean, crisp, beautiful card, Justin. The column of dainty flowers is awesome with the gold circles and the gold mirror wonderful. Love it all. Stamping all those teeny bits of flowers is a talent you have in spades, but it would look like a jumble if I tried. If it were a stamp to be colored, I might be able to manage that. Just saying…you’re a very talented guy! It’s so energizing to see the sun today. Have a great day in the City!

    1. Thank you HJ! I really did enjoy stamping all of the flowers! LOL! It wasn’t too difficult! Just keep everything in odds! I really love the sun, it’s been too long since we last saw it! The city was awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Fabulous card, Justin! I love all the stamping. I love making a card where there is a lot of stamping involved. Call me crazy but I just love bringing ink to paper!

    Glad the sun came out for your City Day. I think any drought deficit was washed away (pun intended) in this week’s storms. I watched this week’s episode of This Is Us. The last scene gave me chills. Can’t wait to talk about it at this week’s crop! Enjoy your day!

    1. Thank you Linda! I really enjoyed the stamping! I’m with you, so I guess that makes up both crazy! LOL!
      It was such a nice day to be in the city! Yes, we have definitely had enough rain! I watched this week’s episode too, all caught up! I love the show! See you this weekend! Hope you had a nice day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Good Morning Justin!

    Absolutely love this card. Your placement of all those tiny flowers and leaves couldn’t possibly be any better and you used ALL of the challenge colors. I think a card with a good amount of white space allows the eyes to concentrate on a specific area of the card and because your multiple stamping is done so beautifully too much more on the card would take away from that beauty. Absolutely, positively, perfectly gorgeous card.

    You dog – I’m so jealous that you get to go into the City today and I can’t. I’m really getting itchy for a day in Manhattan. Thankfully my girls are ALWAYS ready for a day in the City. You can bet that come May when I’m with them to celebrate Mother’s Day (or in my case Mother’s Week tee hee yes, I’m spoiled) we will be on the train. This year though we are taking the ferry over to the island to visit with you and see the SIP store. I”ll have to rob a bank before I leave so I can shop, shop, shop! Just joking on the rob a bank thing in case the “authorities” are reading this.
    So glad you got to see Andrew, how great is it that he brought a pizza. You have yourself a Wondrous Wednesday my friend and enjoy seeing everyone at The Ink Pad. Love and hugs to you, XXOO ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you!! I loved stamping the flowers! And I’m really enjoying all of all the whitespace lately! I agree with what you said about the whitespace, really does let you focus! I’m so glad that you like the card!!!!
      Ha! I can’t wait for you to come back into the city! I’m so excited that you are coming to the store!! I’ll help you with the bank! LOL!
      I have missed Andrew! We had a great time! I hope that you had a great day! Anna send a hello to you! Love and hugs back to you! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hi Justin,

    Enjoy the city today!
