Paper Craft Crew Sketch 168

Getting a late start to the day, oops! I was at Scrap-A-Latte yesterday watching the store for Renee. I did some cutting for her and then Andrew came up and had lunch with me. We had Blaze pizza, delicious as always! He helped me put up some new signs in the window and we listened to music and got caught up. Nice to spend some time with him! When I got home I had a sandwich and watched Limitless. After that it was time for bed. Today we are supposed to have rain and wind so it will be a good crafty day. I need one of those!

After a little hiatus I’m back over on the Paper Craft Crew blog today for this week’s sketch…

PCCCS168 DT Sketch 10-28-2015

As soon as I saw the sketch I thought it would be a good one to use with my Hero Arts Kit! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Vellum and rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper. My greeting and all of the poinsettias and leaves are from the October My Monthly Hero Arts Kit. I heat embossed the greeting in Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. Across the lower part is a piece of paper from the Recollections Midnight Magic 6×6 Paper Pad. I adhered that to the vellum and then hid some SNAIL and 2-Way Glue behind the strip and greeting to adhere the vellum to the card. A circle is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles from another piece of paper from the same 6×6 pad and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. The poinsettias are stamped in one of the reds from the kit, the second layer is Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red and then the third layer is heat embossed with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder. In the center I used some Simon Says Stamp Goldenlocks. For the leaves I used the two greens that came in the kit and then cut out the poinsettias and leaves with the coordinating dies. A piece of Early Espresso is cut out with the Memory Box Branching Out Dies and adhered to the gold circle with SNAIL. The Poinsettias are adhered with Foam Tape and the leaves with SNAIL tucked under them. I used a little Glossy Accents in the centers of the poinsettias and the card is done! I’ve said it before, I love the stamp layering sets and this one is no exception! The stamps in the kit are great and the coordinating dies are a nice addition! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! It’s good to be back with all of the rest of the talented Design Team so go on over to the blog and check out their projects! Thanks very much for visiting with me! Have a wonderful Wednesday! šŸ™‚

  1. Justin, this is an awesomely beautiful card. I love all the elements, especially the beautifully colored poinsettias and the use of vellum. Have a great day!

  2. Hi Justin:

    To me the cut branches are the distinguishing part of your card today. I do love the Poinsettia and the leaves but those branches really add the “designer” touch. Just gorgeous in my opinion.

    Sounds like you are really keeping busy. I haven’t even finished unpacking yet after this latest most wonderful vacation. I was so exhausted by the time I got back home that I had completely forgotten that this weekend we have to turn the clocks back! Boy, that sure would have messed me up. LOL

    You have yourself a Wondrous Wednesday. Love and hugs, XO šŸ™‚

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thank you!! I thought that the branches would be a nice addition, for some reason I just kept seeing them there!
      I have to keep busy to stay sane! LOL! I’m not looking forward to putting the clocks back, it gets dark way too early.
      I hope you had a good Wednesday! Mine was crafty! Love to you! XOXO šŸ™‚

  3. Justin,
    Great card! That Hero Arts kit looks like a lot of fun. Are those ink pads that came with it??
