Paper Craft Crew 203

Wow! I can’t believe that it’s Wednesday already! I had a very nice conference call with my friend Greg in the morning and got to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store around 12:00. I had lots of catching up to do so that’s exactly what I spent the day doing! Almost there! After work I had dinner and then Heather came by and got me so we could do a BJ’s run. She dropped me off and as happens most times I headed over to her house for a little early Thirsty Thursday. We chatted and talked with her neighbors upstairs. A nice evening after a rough day. I do have a fun picture to share with you of Daniel and Tristan today. My brother is a very good photographer and sometimes you just capture that moment, one that I think is just absolutely precious…

Daniel & Tristan

OMG! I can’t stand the level of adorable! LOL! I know that I’m biased but that is an amazing picture! He does love his little sister!

Now on to today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS203 DT Sketch 7-20-2016

I got this fun background stamp from Hero the other day and have been dying to use it! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Coastal Cabana down for my background. The lower half is a piece of Solar White 80lb, I heat embossed the Hero Arts Wave Pattern Background Stamp in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to it. I then cut the top at an angle to match the sketch and adhered it to the card. My tag is another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out using the Sizzix Tags & Word Frames & Stamps Set. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner over a piece of Island Indigo that I flagged both of the ends on. My seahorse, shell and little seahorse are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the seahorse in Mint Julep, Sea Glass and Cup O Joe. The shell is stamped in Soft Brown and Sea Glass and the little Seahorse in Sea Glass. I used the Coordinating Frame Cuts to cut them all out and added them to the card. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Cup O Joe. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Peacock Feathers, Sparkling Clear and Espresso Sequins to complete the card. I love that funky background stamp with emboss resist ink blending on it, I think goes quite well with the Seahorse!
