Paper Craft Crew 196

Another fun day at Stamp, Ink, Paper! Renee got a new line of paper in that moved like hotcakes! My second half of my Lawn Fawn order arrived, I entered it in the system, priced it and put it out. I got in touch with the customers that wanted it and they came in throughout the day to pick it up. Renee and I bounce ideas off of each other all day and she called me after she left with a really good one!! Can’t wait to share it with you! When I got home I had dinner, mum made chili! One of my favorites! My friend Sue stopped by and we chatted for a while and I subjected her to my latest YouTube obsessions! After she left I sat down and made my card, it was going to be a quick card… ummm… not really! Does that happen to you? You set out to make a simple card and end up using half of the supplies that you have?! LOL!

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

PCCCS196 DT Sketch 5-25-2016

When I saw the sketch I remembered that I had a butterfly die that I had picked up a while ago on one of my trips with Sue and Michael to a craft show. About time I used it! The card base today is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I splattered some Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine on the front and worked on the rest of the card while that dried. A piece of Gold Mirror Card (yes, again! LOL!) is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares Lawn Cuts and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My butterfly is a two piece die from Paper Artist. I cut the back out from a piece of 36lb Vellum and the top from a piece of Basic Gray. A tiny piece of Scor-Tape holds the two together and also adhered it to the Mirror Card. Another piece of Mirror Card is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Loopy Circles Craft Die and adhered to the butterfly with Multi-Matte Medium. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I used the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners to cut it out and used a piece of Kool-Tac Clear Foam Tape to adhere it to the card. Yes, I’m obsessed with that Mirror Card, but you have to admit it does look pretty cool! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! Stop by the blog and tale a peek at the rest of the Team’s projects and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for taking a little time out of your day to visit with me! Have a happy Wednesday! 🙂

  1. Just gorgeous Justin – and, there is no such thing as too much shiny foil paper! I really love the double butterfly die, especially since it extends beyond the first layer. Very unique. Now, not that I want to rush you or anything but HURRY UP and get your on line store going! I’m sitting here on pins and needles waiting to see what lines you will be carrying and what dies, if any to go with them.

    I’m still way behind on EVERYTHING and yesterday afternoon was shot when unexpected company arrived. That gave me an excuse to sit and enjoy the afternoon instead of doing what needs to be done. Boy, I’m becoming a procrastinator in my dotage! LOL You have yourself a Wicked Good Wednesday my friend. I can’t tell you how happy I am for you. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Thank you Grace! I agree with you! I’m a little obsessed with that Gold Mirror Card!! I was glad that I remembered that I had that die! It was perfect for the sketch! LOL! I’m working on it! I need to get the ordering logistics down! I’ll have loads of stamps and coordinating dies!
      Sometimes it’s nice to get some surprise visitors and have a day with friends instead of playing catch up! All the things that you need to do will be there tomorrow! I like to procrastinate too! LOL! I’m having a super week! Love you bunches!! XOXO 🙂

  2. This is beautiful! I love that double die!!! How do you remember what you bought? I cringe when I see that I have doubles.

    1. Thank you so much Linda! The die is so cool! I am lucky in that I have a photographic memory! It helps a lot! I have done the doubles thing though! I just think boy I must have really liked that! LOL! 🙂
