Ahh, Thursday, I like you so much better than Monday! How are we all today? I’m good, looking forward to the weekend as always. Yesterday felt a little long but today will be a bit longer. I’m off to Manhattan after work, hopefully it will be finished raining/snowing/freezing by the time I head in. They had a derailment on the LIRR on Monday and it has messed up the trains all week. Maybe that will be cleared up tomorrow too, we can only hope. Did you all enjoy the Control Freaks Blog Tour yesterday?! I always have so much fun making my projects with that super talented group. If you didn’t get a chance to take a look be sure to, there were some great projects!
Today I have my post for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge. This time around we have a sketch challenge…
Some really neat suggestions in the sketch wouldn’t you agree?! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack from Sale-A-Bration. You only have until tomorrow to place you order and qualify for your free Sale-A-Braiton goodies and then it’s gone again until next year. I cut out a doily from the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit in Whisper White. The rounded scallop flag and the flagged pieces are cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies from Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango. All three of the pieces are adhered under a piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The “flowers” are from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set (also from Sale-A-Bration) and are stamped in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. For the greeting I use the stamp from the first Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped it in Island Indigo. It is punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered to the embossed piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals along with the “flowers”. I really like the stamp from the Paper Pumpkin Set, it has that casual feel to it. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for this week’s sketch challenge. Don’t forget to see what the other designers have come up with over at the Paper Craft Crew blog. Thank you for checking in and I hope you have an awesome day!
