Paper Craft Crew 180

Well, I was up nice and early this morning, 4:00am to be exact! I went and picked up Brian and Kim and took them to JFK. An hour round trip, not bad at all! Yesterday after I took Sandy to the airport with Andrew we came back to my house and did a little research on some things that I’m looking to get rid of for a friend. For lunch we went to Monty’s for pizza and then came back to the house and watched Lucifer, I really do love that show! After dinner Heather stopped by and picked me up, we ran to Target and Petco to pick up some things. We stopped back at my house so I could get my car and I went to her house to chill for a bit. Louis stopped by later and by the time I got home it was 12:30am! I think I see a nap in my future! LOL! I have to go and open the store for Renee this morning and then I’m going over to see Sue for a bit. Another fun filled Wednesday!

Today I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS180 DT Sketch 2-03-2016

I needed some bright colors and the inspiration for the card is the Patterned Paper! My card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares to cut out a piece of Night of Navy, ran through the Big Shot twice to get the rectangle, and a piece of paper from the Crate Paper Flea Market 6×6 Paper Pad. The patterned paper is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. All of the stamped images are from the Simon Says Stamp Lovely Spring Photopolymer Stamp Set. They are stamped on Ivory 110lb and cut out with the Coordinating Lovely Day Craft Dies. I used Simon Says Stamp Catkin Ink for the wreath and leaves, Rosie Cheeks for the heart and flower at the top, Teeny Bikini for the flower at the bottom and Mint Candy for the greeting banner. They are adhered with Foam Tape and SNAIL. I added a few Pearls to the flowers and some Pretty Pink Posh Blue Lagoon, Ballerina Pink and Sparkling Clear Sequins complete the card! I love the fun mix of colors and I think the patterned paper is a nice contrast to the stamped images! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge!

  1. What a beautiful card, Justin. I love all the elements and the colors, especially the DSP. Great job. I keep wondering how you can cram more into your 24 hours, but now I see that when you start at 4 AM and go until after midnight a lot can be done. I hope you get a nap.

    1. Thank you HJ! LOL! Three hours of sleep is not good, even for me! I did take a little nap after I got back home! Enjoy your day! 🙂

  2. Good Morning Justin:

    Quite a busy card today and the best part of it to me is the stitched rectangle and square. I just think that little detail makes all the difference in the world on any card. I’m so glad SS came up with those and I need to get the stitched hearts dies. Not sure why I’ve been holding off on those, I do have them written on my “to buy” list.

    Hard to believe you made it to JFK and back in an hour. Sometimes when I’ve flown out of JFK it’s taken me an hour just to get in there and get parked. LOL Sounds like you had a good Tuesday and I hope your Wednesday is just as good. Enjoy – tomorrow is Thirsty Thursday! LOL Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Hi Grace!
      Yes, it’s busy for sure but I like that every once in a while! I love the stitched dies, adds just the right amount of something to edge! Thanks!
      I was quite impressed with my round trip time to JFK too! The worst part was by the terminal! Hope that you are feeling better! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  3. Love this, I really like the “collage look” busy but put together very well, as usual.
