Paper Craft Crew 117

Here we are winding our way into Wednesday already. My week has been pretty good so far. Last night I went with Heather to look at an apartment. It had, as the realtor stated, a very unique bathroom. The toilet and sink were in one room and the shower was on the other side in another room. The only problem was that you had to walk through the kitchen to get to the shower! That’s not unique that just odd! After, we headed over to Brian and Kim’s for Taco night. Michael joined us and we played some Cards Against Humanity. Neither Heather nor Michael had played before and they really enjoyed the game! It’s always nice to just sit there and laugh with friends! What a nice way to end the day! 🙂

If it’s Wednesday then that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Here is your inspiration for this week…

PCCCS117 Sketch 11-05-2014

I was in the mood for some Bermuda Bay, I haven’t used that color in a long time and it’s one of my favorites! Today’s card begins with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of Bermuda Bay that is embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The panel on the left is piece of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper pack backed with some Whisper White. Across the middle of the card is a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon. My stars are from the Many Merry Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set from the Holiday Supplement Catalog, the larger one is stamped in Bermuda Bay on Whisper White and the smaller on is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Bermuda Bay. They are both cut out with the Stars Framelits Dies and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I choose the greeting from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped it in Bermuda Bay on a piece of Whisper White, flagged the right, and tucked it under the right side of the panel. Three little crystal sequins adhered above the glimmer paper complete the card. I think that piece of DSP from the Motley Monsters DSP pack is my favorite, just goes to show that there is much more than just Halloween paper in there! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see what the other designers have for you for inspiration and let’s see your take, upload your card to the gallery. Thanks very much for taking a little time to come by and see me! Enjoy your Wednesday! 🙂

  9. My favorite part is the Dazzling Diamonds strip. It totally puts the card over the top. Special request: Justin, I’m thinking about a Christmas card featuring the train from the Traveler set. Whaddya think? Pretty cool, huh? Got any intriguing visions?
