Paper Craft Crew 200!

Ahh… Wednesday! Always seems to be the busiest day of the week for me lately! My Tuesday was a pretty busy one too! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was very busy! Renee has been having issues with her Dell Computer running Windows… need I say more?! After about an hour on the phone with Microsoft they finally determined that it was the last update that messed up the computer so we had to roll it back to fix it. I concentrated on getting some more orders in and working with my Rep on a Β few things. The weather was just lovely again, the convertible makes me such a happy boy! When I got home from the store Daniel was still at my Parent’s and it was National Selfie Day so he and I haven’t had a selfie in a long time! Here is our contribution…

Daniel & Me NSD

Oh how I love that little boy! After I had some dinner I headed over to see my friend Sue! She was having some computer issues too so I got that straightened out and we sat and chatted for a bit on the front steps. When I got home I had to finish my card for today, last minute as usual! I need to work on my planning a little more! Today will be super busy at the store! I have Concord & 9th, Altenew and Notions arriving! Just in time for my class tomorrow! YAY!

Today is a special Wednesday post for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge! It’s our 200th one!! I am happy to say that I have been playing along since challenge 7!! Here is this week’s sketch…

PCCCS200 DT Sketch 6-22-2016

I wanted to play with my Hero Arts Seahorse again but I hadn’t used purple in a while so I Googled just to make sure that there are purple Seahorses and there are! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of paper from the Bo Bunny Believe 12×12 Paper Line, it’s the Devotion sheet. Next up I used the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles Stackables to cut out a piece of Ballerina Pink and Cyber Grape. The pink is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. On my purple piece I used the seaweed from the Hero Arts Color Layering Goldfish Photopolymer Stamp Set and heat embossed them in Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder. That panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I then adhered some purple and silver glitter tape to some SolarΒ White 80lb and adhered that to the card on diagonals crossing each other. A piece of Pale Aqua is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Circles Stackables and adhered to the card with more E-Z Runner. My images are all from the Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse Photopolymer Stamp Set. The Seahorse is stamped in Passion Flower, Grape Juice and Intense Black, the Starfish in Wet Cement and Cup O Joe and the Shell in Soft Pink and Wet Cement. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the circle. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder on more Ballerina Pink and tucked under the circle. Of course I added some Pretty Pink Posh Silver, Pink Peony and Amethyst Sequins for a little sparkle! I love that patterned paper and the super cool Seahorse! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the 200th Challenge over on the Paper Craft Crew blog! There is some blog candy and all sorts of other goodness going on over on the BLOG so go and check it out! While you’re there make a card and enter it in the gallery to help us celebrate!

  1. Oh my Justin! How you remember all the products your have is beyond me. You seem to use so many different things on this card that just thinking about all the different things you used made me a bit dizzy! LOL The end result is fabulous. AND, I learned that yes indeed there are purple seahorses! This card is delightful, fun and color enriching. Anyone would be thrilled to receive it I’m sure. Your ability to draw from so many different supplies and end up with a cohesive card is beyond my ability to comprehend.

    I’m so glad you are enjoying your new venture as a store owner and operator. It must be amazingly wonderful to be your own boss. I wish you every success possible and, one of these days, I might just make the drive to the island to check it out (don’t hold your breath though), I’m feeling old and crotchety with this heat. LOL

    Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. LOL! I have lots of Post-it’s Grace! Trust me, if I didn’t write it down it would take me a long time to find all of the stuff that I use sometimes! I do love the Seahorse in purple! I do love to pull out a lot of stuff from time to time don’t I?! Thanks! So happy that you like him!
      I really am loving what I’m doing! It’s definitely a lot of work but worth it in the end! How nice would it be to get a visit from you! LOL! Think cool thoughts my friend!
      Love and hugs back to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. What a cute selie! I love this card, those colors are so different for an underwater theme. Perfect

    1. The cuteness lies in the fact that Daniel is in the picture! LOL! Thanks! I had fun putting this one together! πŸ™‚

  3. Love the colors of this sea scene on this very cute card. It makes me want a day at the beach. So glad things are going well with you and the store. Little Daniel is growing up and is just as handsome as ever. Great selfie for National Selfie Day!

    1. Thank you HJ! I thought the purple was a refreshing change from all blues! Love my new job! Daniel is just so much fun! I have learned that you enjoy them as much as you can, they grow up way too fast! πŸ™‚

  4. I love that seahorse! Great combination of layers and textures, and the sequins remind me of the shiny stones and sea-worn glass you find on the beach. Thanks for sharing, Justin! A great card for our 200th challenge!

    1. Yes, me too Deborah! Thank you! That is a great way to think of the sequins! So happy to play along! Have a great weekend! πŸ™‚
