Paper Craft Crew 60

Wednesday already! This week is moving along at a nice pace! Work was loads of fun today as the network was down for most of the day which makes for a very non-productive time. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here for the past couple of days and is supposed to stay like this through the weekend. On a happy note I finally finished the third Hunger Games book. I think I started reading it 8 months ago. My flight over the weekend prompted me to finish it and I have to say it was pretty good. I use to read all the time but there is just not enough time to in the day as it is and to add one more thing, well, you know how it goes!

Before we get to today’s post I wanted to let you know that Stampin’ Up! has released another Photopolymer Stamp Set just in time for Halloween called Bite Me. It has some great images and a really cool spider web. You can see the flyer below or click here for a PDF.


Now for today’s post that is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge. This week’s sketch has an interesting layout…

PCCCS060 9-25-2013

I decided on a Holiday card that is very non-tradiotional in it’s colors, so unlike me huh?! The base of the card is Pool Party Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack on top and a piece of Midnight Muse on the bottom. Before I adhered it to the base I used some Sticky Strip to adhere a piece of Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon across the seam. The greeting is from the Joy to the World Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Midnight muse and is backed with a piece of Pool Party. For the small ornaments I stamped two from the Very Merry Tags Stamp Set in Pool Party and punched them out with the Mosaic Punch. The large ornament is from the Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set, stamped in Pool Party and Punched out with the Christmas Ornament Punch. The very merry is punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. All of the elements and greeting are adhered with Stampin’ DImensionals. Three Basic Jewels Rhinestones give the card a little sparkle and finish it off nicely. I really like the colors, they are a bit patriotic but fun for a Holiday card!
