Paper Craft Crew 194

Happy Hump Day peeps! I trust that your week is going well! Mine is not too bad. I went to meet Bill at BJ’s this morning to help with something and then came home and stopped by my Parent’s to have lunch. After that I came back to my house and crafted for a bit. I spoke to Sue and her and I are going to go on a little adventure today! Taylor stopped by, she has to have her tonsils out in July, nothing like making someone wait! I also spoke to Michael for a bit and we got caught up! Sandy came by around 6:30 and we went out to dinner to the Noodle Shop. I have been wanting to try it for a while and I must say that we both enjoyed it! I also got a ride in her gorgeous new car, there are so many electronic goodies in there I could spend hours exploring it all! I hope that I can get my morning errands done in time to get back and watch the store for Renee at 2:00! Wish me luck!

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

PCCCS194 DT Theme 5-11-2016

I have been using flowers a lot lately and thought that I didn’t have any new ones, I was wrong! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Concord & 9th By Your Side Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Desert Storm 80lb and then adhered it to the card with Tombo Extreme Adhesive. To create my flower panel I traced around the inside of one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals with a pencil and then heat embossed the flowers and stems from the Concord & 9th Shine Brighter Photopolymer Stamp Set with more Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card. I stamped an extra stem and flower on a another piece of Watercolor Card and then used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors to color them in. Once they dried I cut out the pair with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Lawn Cuts and the single flower with the Coordinating Shine Brighter Dies. The extra stem is cut out with my Scissors and adhered to the oval with Multi-Matte Medium. I used some Foam Tape to adhere the flower and then some more Tombo Extreme to adhere the oval to the card. A generous sprinkling of Copper Sequins and the card is done! I really do love the Copper Embossing Powder and the Gansai Tambi Watercolors are definitely my favorite! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s projects and enter yours in the gallery!

  1. Copper is beginning to call my name! I’m loving it and especially what you did on this beautiful card, Justin. I love the bright flowers, the stitched oval and bling of the sequins with the sweet greeting. I imagine it is even more stunning up close and personal than it is in the photo. Have a wonderful day!

    1. Oh, I love Copper HJ! It’s my new gold! Thank you! I’m loving those Gansai Tambi Watercolors! Pictures never really do the cards justice! I hope that you enjoyed your day! Nice and sunny here again! Have another super day! 🙂

  2. HI Justin:

    Like HJ, copper is really catching my attention these days. Your card design is just off the wall beautiful and the stitched ovals were the perfect backdrop for the flowers. You are so creative!!!! AND, once again, your energy level is just amazing. I will miss seeing your creations every day while I am away but will have so much to look forward to when I return and play catch up.

    Have yourself a Wonderful Wednesday and I’ll talk to you when I get back. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

  3. Beautiful creation as usual. Love the colors you picked. I love my Gansai Tambi watercolors. I do need to practice more with them. I swear Copper is the new in metalic color, I’m seeing it everywhere, and loving it.
