Paper Craft Crew 242

Home / Blog / Paper Craft Crew 242

Wednesday already! It was a quiet day at the Store. Renee did have a few people in to do some make up projects. I made a few cards and spoke to Sue. After work I came home, my Parent’s were out at my Brother’s watching the kids. Jim came by and we went for a nice long walk on the bike train again. On the way back we stopped and got Zorn’s for dinner. We worked on the crafty project, we are almost finished, and watched a little TV. Today Renee is off taking care of last minute baby shower things so I’ll be alone. I’m going to try and focus on getting things done! 😀

Since it is Wednesday that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I did a card with a nice ink blended background! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Pale Tomato, Dark Quartz and Soft Vanilla Ink to a piece of Solar White 80lb and set is aside for a little while to dry. Of course after about 10 minutes I got impatient and sped up the drying with my Heat Tool. After it was completely dry I used my Powder Tool and then stamped the images from the Hero Arts Dreams are Made Photopolymer Stamp Set In Versa-Mark and heat embossed them in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Next I used the Hero Arts Floral Border Fancy Die to cut out a piece of Deep Blue. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum that is adhered around the back of the blue die cut. I added some 3M Foam Tape to the back of the blue die cut and adhered it to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins and the card is done. I do love that Dreams are Made Set, there are some fun images and great greetings in there! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge!

  1. An absolutely stunning card this morning Justin! You did a fantastic job with the background and that die is amazingly beautiful! When I saw the color challenge I had my doubts about combining reddish pink and coral but you put them together in that background and bang – amazingly beautiful! I so love seeing our creations.

    Bad day yesterday dealing with the cable company and it will be a repeat today. Corporate greed at it’s highest extreme. Collect from the advertisers and squeeze every cent they can get from the consumers. I may just drop TV completely. You have yourself a Wondrous Wednesday my friend! Love and hugs to you XXOO 🙂

    1. Thanks Grace! I was a little leery of the colors but I had fun with it and that’s all that matters!
      I can’t stand corporate America! Especially the cable companies! I hope that you got your issues straightened out! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  2. OMG, seriously, this is beautiful just gorgeous. I love the blended background, and the navy just offsets this beautifully.
