Paper Craft Crew 191

No matter how long the day is as long as it’s in Manhattan it’s a good day! The Ink Pad was great as always! Anna and I had a nice productive day, we got lots of stuff entered and put away. I stayed late because there was a class, Handlettering taught a very talented young lady named Caitlyn. She has an Etsy shop if you want to take a look at some of her work you can find it HERE. Kim came by the store and we had Noodles for dinner, she is off to Missouri this morning, I’ll really miss her this week seeing as I’m going to be in the city a lot! By the time I got home it was 10:45. Taylor was there with Kiera keeping Winston company. I sat down and made a card and relaxed a for bit. Ready to do it all over again tomorrow! 🙂

So it’s Wednesday right?! LOL! That means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS191 DT Sketch 4-20-2016

I have really been enjoying the look of White Pigment Ink on Kraft Card Stock especially with another ink color stamped over it! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Mossy Meadow onto the base for my background. The circle is a piece of Blackberry Bliss that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies. My greeting is stamped onto a piece of Desert Storm 80lb that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Dies. The greeting is stamped in Hero Arts Grape Juice Ink using the A Bit of Kindness Wood Mount Stamp. My flower and leaves are stamped in Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink and they are from the Hero Arts For you Flowers Color Layering Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the second layer of the leaves in Forever Green Ink and the second layer of the flower in Grape Juice. The flower is cut out with my Scissors and both the flower and greeting are adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to give the card a little shine. That Hero Arts For you Flowers is definitely becoming one of my favorite Color Layering Sets! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the blog and see what the rest of the Team has come ups with to inspire you and enter your card in the gallery! Thank you for coming by and partaking in my busy week! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

  1. Hello Justin,
    Another beautiful card, as always. Love the colors.
    Well, found out Friday that I have complex regional pain syndrome. (Nerve damage). So, off go to see a neurologist. l am always in pain, legs tremor, more pain, etc, etc. I did however, graduate from the walker to the cane.That’s why I wasn’t at the Allentown show, cause believe me I would have looked for you! Now you enjoy your day. Take care! Hugs, love Donna 🙂

    1. Hi Donna!
      Thank you! Oh no!! You just can’t catch a break! My friend Brian is having serious back issues and has the same symptoms as you. I’m sorry that I didn’t get to see you in Allentown. I hope that they can do something to help you! Hugs to you too! XOXO 🙂

  2. Love the color combo for today Justin and I always love the layering stamps. The sentiment on today’s card is very special also. I need to stop making “have to” cards for a while (birthday, anniversary, holiday, etc.) and just make some cards like yours today to surprise friends and put a smile on their face for absolutely no reason at all except to let them know I’m thinking of them. It’s so nice to get something other than bills in the mailbox once in a while. Now, if I could get half of what you get done in a day I might find time to actually do that. Enjoy your energy while you are still young! You have yourself a worry free Wednesday and enjoy this wonderful weather my friend. Luv and hugs, XXOO (:)

    1. Thank you Grace! Layering stamps are by far my favorite! You get to use all of those fun ink colors that you have! I do love the sentiment! It’s nice to get something just because! LOL! It’s been rough getting everything done but I’m trying hard! I hope that you had a nice day my friend! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  3. This is a beautiful card, Justin. I love the colors you used and the beautiful flower and great sentiment. Altogether it makes an awesome card. This great weather gives me so much energy. I should be getting more done. Tomorrow’s another day, right?

    1. Thank you HJ! I love that flower set! I love the weather when it gets warmer! Tomorrow is always another day!! 🙂
