Paper Craft Crew 193

Oh boy! The week is moving right along isn’t it?! I woke up later than I wanted to today and for some reason that throws off my whole day. I did manage to make a card this morning with Andrea via FaceTime and we chatted about some Design Team things. Before I headed over to see Renee at Scrap-A-Latte I stopped by my parent’s to see Daniel and Erika was there. It was another rainy day so perfect to sit and discuss lots of things with Renee. We got a lot accomplished and that made me feel better! When I got back home it was time for dinner and mum made beef stew, perfect for a rainy day. After dinner I came home and watched some YouTube videos and did some research on my little project. Soon I will be able to share with you what I have been working on! I hope that when you find out what it is that you are as excited as I am!

No on to today’s post! It’s for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS193 DT Sketch 5-04-2016

As soon as I saw the sketch I knew just what I wanted to do! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of paper from the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper Pack across the upper half of the card. My circles are cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Circle Loops Craft Dies from, you guessed it, Gold Mirror Card Stock! Sick of it yet?! LOL! I adhered them to the card with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Hello Gorgeous Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed onto a strip of Black 110lb with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder. I flagged the left side and adhered it to the card with Foam Tape. I didn’t have a gold button so I took one fromΒ the giant bin-o-buttons and coated it in Versa-Mark and dipped it in the Gold Embossing Powder. Some Tweezers helped to hold it while I heat set the powder and I had a matching gold button! Some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is tied in a bow and the button is adhered to the greeting strip with a Glue Dot. I just had to use that greeting! I think that it’s so different! This would make a fun wedding card, you could write congratulations on the inside and it would go perfectly with the Sinceriously! I hope that you like my Design Team Card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! Don’t forget to stop by the BLOG and take a look at the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you so very much for coming by today! Have a wildly wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Love the eye-catching and modern look of today’s card. Glad to hear we will soon hear about your project!

    1. Thanks Carol! Can’t wait to share my little project with all of you! πŸ™‚

  2. I love the black and gold of today’s card. I have colored buttons before but now I have a new way of getting the color I need…heat emboss them – carefully with tweezers. So clever, Justin. Can’t wait to hear about your project news.

    1. Thanks HJ! Coloring the button with Embossing Powder was pretty neat! You can match everything up nicely! You definitely need the tweezers! LOL! Looking forward to letting you all in on what I’m up to! πŸ™‚

  3. H Justin:

    Today’s card is breathtaking. I will never, ever get sick of the gold whether it be cardstock or embossing. It just adds so much to any card and, of course, the black, white, gold combo is always so classy.

    Shot the day to heck here. Got a phone call from a friend that needed to talk so I spent, are you ready, five hours on the phone with her. I’m not a good multitask-er so I got nothing I had planned to do done. Oh well, it’s more important to listen to a friend that needs to talk then to do anything else. I hope you had a Wondrous Wednesday Justin. Love and hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚
