Paper Craft Crew 190

Yay for Wednesday! Halfway there people! Yesterday was the usual sort of day. It rained in the morning but stopped by 1:00. I crafted with Andrea over FaceTime and went and had lunch and dinner at my parent’s with Daniel! He is too funny! He was playing with his cars, he loves them! I continued work on my upcoming project and got some more stuff for it too. Last night I ran out and got gas in the car. I have to take Brian to the Dr. this morning so it’s an early day for me! I finally got my taxes done too! Thanks Melissa! You’re the best as always!

Once again it’s time for another Paper Craft Crew challenge and this week we have some colors for you…

PCCCS190 DT Colors 4-13-2016

I love when I can just stamp and get to use all of those fun ink colors that I have! For the base of today’s card I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the images are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Dimensional Bird Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the birds in Tempting Turquoise, Cucumber Crush and Crushed Curry with the outlines stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using my Mini MISTI. The flowers are stamped in Watermelon Wonder and the leaves in Cucumber Crush. I laid out my flowers, leaves and bird onto my card and then used Press ‘n Seal to pick them up. More of the flowers and leaves are stamped on the card and the I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Audrey Blue to the upper half of the card. While the flowers, leaves and bird were still on the Press ‘n Seal I added Foam Squares to the back, removed the backing paper and adhered them to the card. The Press n’ Seal is then peeled off making sure that all of my pieces stayed exactly where I wanted them! My greeting is from the Hero Arts Thanks Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black across the top and the card is finished! I loved getting to use a Christmas set to make a nice bright fun card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge!

  5. Out of the ball park Justin! Are you sure you didn’t get this card at Hallmark? This card is amazing. I love it because of all the dimension and your use of color on the birds. They look like they just landed on a flower bush. I mean really – this card is beyond gorgeous. I don’t know what else to say, there aren’t enough positive adjectives in what’s left of my vocabulary to describe this card.

    I hope your weather is as good in Long Island as it is here in Maine today. The sun is shining and it’s supposed to get into the 40’s with not much wind. It seems like it’s been wicked windy here for the past umpteen months! It’s been a while since we have seen a new photo of Daniel…….take care of that please. LOL Meanwhile have yourself a Wonderful Wednesday. Luv and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you very much Grace! I did have a lot of fun putting the card together! Loads of stamping fun! So happy that you really like the card!
      We did have nice weather and it’s just supposed to keep getting nicer! I will make sure and get a picture of the little man! Hope you enjoyed your day! XOXO 🙂

  6. I love this card — everything about it. It’s bright, cheery and full of color. Whoever the recipient is may consider themselves mighty luckeeeeee!

  7. Hi Justin,
