Paper Craft Crew Sketch 027

Wednesday! Halfway to Friday! So, I have decided to stop obsessing about the weather. I will say one last time that I am looking forward to spring. Yesterday was an early to work day. I’m feeling a bit sluggish today, 5 hours of sleep is apparently not enough for me. I’ll have to see if I can catch up later, probably not! How are all of you today? I am having a quiet week so no complaints on my end. 🙂

For today’s post I have my Paper Craft Crew card. This week we have a sketch…


I’m really liking the colors in the Sycamore Street DSP from Sale-A-Bration so there is little strip on my card again! The base of today’s card is a piece of Island Indigo Card Stock. Some Sahara Sand is embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. I stamped the greeting and the umbrella handle on a piece of Whisper White. The greeting in Tangerine Tango and the umbrella handle in Soft Suede. The top of the umbrella is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with my Paper Snips. I curved it and mounted it to the greeting panel with a Stampin’ Dimensional. All of these elements are from the Rain or Shine Stamp Set. A strip of Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper goes across the top and on top of that is a piece of Pool Party that I embossed with the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The image inside the Soda Pop Top is form the Spring Sampler Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. I choose a Tangerine Tango Button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack and put a thin piece of Pool Party through it for the “thread”. Both the Soda Pop Top and the button are adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots. I really do like this card a lot, I’m usually my worst critic, but this one I like! I hope that you like it too. Thank you for looking at my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge. I hope that you enjoy your day… Rain or Shine!
