Another rainy day. It was so foggy too in the morning when I headed over to the Store, again, because of our close proximity to the water I guess. Renee and I had a quiet project filled day. I had to get two cards made and work on some other things. I left the Store around 4:00 to come home and meet Jim. We worked on more of the crafty project and had some Chinese for dinner. Always a nice way to end the day with a good friend! Today, I have to get ready for tomorrow’s Wedding card and gift box class. That should be fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

Without further ado here is this week’s Sketch for the Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I started my card by cutting a piece of the Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper and adhering it to a piece of Fun Foam and tying a piece of May Arts Natural Twine around the top. Then I used E-Z Runner Ultra Strong to adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed the hello from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Tropical Sea and adhered it to the patterned paper. My Birthday is heat embossed with more White onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I flagged the bottom, adhered a stripย of Candied Yam to the top and then used a little more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered it under the twine. A nice simple Birthday card! I love that hello stamp, it has a little bit of a stitched look to it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

  1. That was a pretty involved sketch for this week but you pulled it off beautifully. Why oh why am I NOT surprised. I love that Hello stamp. It looks like the word was formed with tiny staples. LOL The color combo was very “spring”. Great Job.

    Fear not Justin – warmer weather with actual sunshine is predicted for next week. So, perhaps winter will finally say goodbye until December. You’ll be able to put the top down and enjoy the ride to the store and home. Have a Whimsical Wednesday. Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! I do love to get to start off with a sketch and then interpret it! The hello stamp is fun! Ahh, yes, staples, not stitches!
      Glad to hear that the weather is to improve, I have had the top down a few times but not nearly enough! Love and hugs to you! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Justin,
    Love this card!! Love the way the flowers peek out from behind the teal card stock. And of course, love the vellum banner.

  3. Cute! Love the colors and your take on the sketch. That stamp never impressed me, now I’m giving it a ssecond look.

    OMg, I cant tell if I’m in Monsoon season or a rain forest. It is non-stop with high winds, gusting up to 65. I guess thats why I lve in The Windy City. seeiousy, the rain is bad, heavy all day with flooding. And snow tonight, YES! OMG, they say finaly sun on aturday and 70 by Sunday. I hope so, we need to dry out. Take care

    1. Thanks Linda! I love the big word dies!
      It’s like that here today, extra windy down by the store. I hope that you send your 70’s here!! We need to dry out too!! ๐Ÿ™‚
