Paper Craft Crew #43 & Sneak Peek

Yeah, it’s Wednesday and that means we are halfway there to a three day weekend! I completely forgot that Monday is a holiday! What a nice surprise that was when I remembered! When I woke up yesterday morning it was really foggy and then it went up to 85 degrees with some mugginess. I’m not complaining but I did leave the windows open in my house and when I got home everything had a thin coating of pollen. After I Swiffered the cloth was green! It really is amazing how much of that stuff there is around!

Today’s post – Paper Craft Crew Design Team Sketch #43…

PCCCS043 Sketch 5-22-2013

I’m really having such a good time with the new stuff! It’s so much fun to see what works with what. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. The middle panel consist of some Soho Subway Designer Series Paper*, Crisp Cantaloupe* and Early Espresso. I stamped the image from the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set in Crisp Cantaloupe*, I thought it slightly mimicked the pattern in the DSP. Some Early Espresso Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon goes around the lower half. A piece Vellum that is cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit is behind a Window Frames Collection Framelit. The greeting is from the Label Love Stamp Set* and is punched out with the Artisan Label Punch* and is backed by a piece of Early Espresso cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits. The button is a new Very Vintage Designer Button* that I threaded some Early Espresso Bakers Twine all around the edge. I really like the colors and the layering of the Framelits and Punch are kind of neat too. Thanks you for stopping by to visit me and see my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for this week’s sketch.

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Stampin’ Up! has released their first Photopolymer Stamp Set! It’s called Designer Typeset! The great thing about Photopolymer Stamps is that they are completely clear so you can see exactly where you are going to stamp. They work amazingly with our new Firm Foam Stampin’ Pads for great ink coverage. You are going to love them! This is a limited release so make sure you get one before it’s gone!
