Paper Craft Crew 217

Hello my friends! We have reached the mid-way point in the week! It is warming up here again! Yay! The heat is back on in my apartment and it has been 86 degrees for the past two days. A little tooΒ warm for inside the house! I was nice and busy at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! I got some cards made for this month’s Card Class and Renee had her Monthly Memories Class. After work I headed home and had a quick dinner with my Parent’s and then headed over to Heather’s. We ran to BJ’s and then hung out at her place waiting for the new tenant to come by. Heather is selling most of the furniture and it kind of works out perfectly because the girl that’s moving in is coming from her parent’s so she doesn’t have much! Today I will finish the rest of the cards and work on some more upcoming classes. Love my job! πŸ˜€

If it’s Wednesday then I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…


I have been wanting to use the Altenew Coffee Love Photopolymer Stamp Set again for a while and it worked perfectly with the sketch! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Hero Arts Fabulous Flourish Background onto a piece of Blue Mint with Hero Arts Navy Ink and then adhered it to the card to cover the entire front. Some Champagne Curious Metallic is cut out with the Spellbinders Triple Tear Nestabilities and adhered over to the left. On top of that is a piece of Navy that I cut out with the die from the Hero Arts Kelly’s To Do List Stamp & Cut Set. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My images and greeting are from that Altenew Coffee Love Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the Espresso Pot in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic and the cups in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto some Slate. They are cut out with my Scissors and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is heat embossed onto another piece of Slate in more White and adhered under the panel with more 3D Foam Squares. I added some Little Things by Lucy Nautical and Platinum Sequins Mix randomly and the card is done! I love that Coffee Love Set and I have been really into the blues lately! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the cards from my other Teammates and enter your card in the gallery! I thank you for your visit today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh, very nice. I love, love, love this card! Nothing is more relaxing than that!
    Happy Hump Day!

  2. Hi Justin!
    Love the Espresso Pot and cups!! You always put all the elements together so beautifully.
    The color on my computer must be off. The only blue in this pic is the bottle behind the J. Everything on the card is gray and beige. Still looks awesome though.

    1. Hello Gerri!
      Thanks Gerri! Love that Set and love coffee!
      Yes, the color must be a little off, the card is sky blue and navy! πŸ™‚

  3. AHA! At first glance this card looked oh so complicated! Then as I read through your description I realized that wasn’t the case but wow, what a first impression. Love the Espresso Pot and cups also – so Gerri and I are of the same mindset. This card is perfect for either a guy or a gal and that isn’t the easiest thing to achieve ever. Love it.

    Glad you had a productive day yesterday. I’d tell you about my day and dealing with the DMV here but I’d sound like a whiny old lady. Saying I was dealing with the DMV should be sufficient! LOL Warm weather is forecast for today here also so we are going to barbecue the last of the Filet Mignon steaks from the freezer and start to put away the porch and deck furniture. One never know around here when the beauty of winter will actually hit. (I scouted around using the S word because I don’t want to upset Justin!)

    You have yourself a Wondrous Wednesday my friend. Love and hugs to you, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Love set, and it wasn’t too complicated, it just looks like it was! It would work for just about anyone!
      I hate the DMV! The last time I went I was there for three hours! We are to get warmer today and tomorrow but rain tomorrow. I’ll take it as long as it’s warm. LOL! You can have all of the S word this year thanks! Hate it! LOL!
      Hope you have a great day! It was 86 degrees in my apartment when I got up, too hot! Headache, hopefully it leaves soon! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚
