Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCC407


Welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

This weeks Challenge, PCC407, is a horizontal sketch.

With Christmas behind us I chose to look towards our Jan - Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure for what I would create for this sketch challenge. 

Let me say 1st that I hope you all had a as great a Christmas as possible under the circumstances. We have 2 of our family who live in Colorado who are considered high risk for the Covid-19 virus (myself included). So we are ultra careful around anyone not in our family. So our family gathering was limited to those we knew were taking the correct precautions, masks, distance & hand washing. But small as it was we had a great time. I am so grateful for the time spent with family, as I am sure that you all are too.

I started with the Floating and Fluttering Bundle. I wanted to use the Rectangle Stamp and the coordinating Fluttering Die for my focal point on this project.
I also used one of the Butterflies from this set. Which is a 2 step stamp set. You have the outline or detail stamp ( I used StazOn Jet Black ink). then I used Daffodil Delight Ink (stamped off once) for the background stamp and then Bumblebee ink for the 2nd background stamp. Next I went to the Sale-A-Bration A Touch of Ink Stamp Set. ( FREE with $100.00 Purchase). This stamp set is also a 2 Step Stamp set, but, I opted to color with my Stampin' Blends Markers (Rocco Rose Combo, Granny Apple Green Combo  & Dark Daffodil Delight). The Sentiment comes with the A Touch of Ink Stamp Set too. I mounted this Label on a 6" x 6" Ganny Apple Green piece from the Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper ( FREE with $50.00 Purchase).I embossed it with the  Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, with Stampin' Dimensionals  The 3/8" Strip is Rocco Rose Cardstock. The Card Base and the Card Front are Whisper White Cardstock. The new products will be available for purchase January 5th, 2021. 

I hope you like my take on this weeks sketch and hope that you too will participate in this fun challenge.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCC406


Welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

This week our challenge is to make something from our Favorite Holiday Stamp Set. I had a hard time with this one. I have so many that I love this year. So I chose the one I have wanted to play with but had not been able to, until now that is. Joyful Holly. 
This is a two step Photopolymer Stamp Set (Clear Stamps), And it is so easy to work with. I stamped the Detail Holly Stamp with Old Olive Ink. The Background Holly Stamp is stamped with Pear Pizzazz. The Berries are stamped with Real Red Ink. Once the Holly & berries were stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, I Embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then die cut with the largest Scalloped Stitched Rectangle in the Stitched so Sweetly Dies. The Scalloped Rectangle is matted onto Old Olive and then Real Red. The Card Base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock. The Card Front is from the 'Tis The Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. The Sentiment is stamped with Real Red Ink on Whisper white Cardstock. I punched the ends with the new Treasured Tags Pick A Punch. This was adhered to a die cut from the Warm Wraps Dies. Which was first stamped with the Warm Hugs Stamp Set. This card is trimmed with Real Red Sheer Ribbon & Wonderful Gems. 

You too can participate in our fun challenge. Just create a project using our theme for this week and post it to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog. We can't wait to see what you create.

This weeks challenge, PCC405, is a Vertical Sketch for you to try.
I decided to give you another sneak peek at the Dragonfly Gardens Bundle, so I used it for this sketch. the Card Base is Calypso Coral Cardstock. The Card Front is Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the dots with a stamp from The Right Triangle stamp set using Bumblebee Ink. I die cut a rectangle with the Stitched Rectangle Dies from the Dandy Garden 6" x 6" DSP.I matted it and the Whisper White Stitched Square with Calypso coral Cardstock. The Sentiment is from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and has been stamped with Mossy Meadow Ink. The dragonfly has been punched out of the DSP using the Dragonfly Punch. I used the Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush on the Dragonfly Wings. And a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to embellish the card.

Third Thursdays Blog Hop: Decembers Theme - Last Minute Lucy


 Welcome to the December 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Last Minute Lucy. Boy do I have a bad case of that. This has been such a busy month for me. So, it is crunch time. I have my family gift projects to create. Here is the 1st one.

One of the gifts on my daughter's list this year was Bling. She says her collection of Stampin' Up! products has reached its storage limit and the only thing she needed was bling. Now I have other things for her not stamping related. But I encouraged the girls in my family to make their Stampin' Up! requests while our sale was going on. Long story short, I wanted to make a gift package of some sort using the Trimming the Town Suite of products. I have have pretty much cased the gift box inspiration from Intatwyne Designs YouTube video. I created my own box and tweaked the box top design to fit my box. Thank you Angelina! 


Hope you all like it.

Now it is time to see what Last Minute Lucy projects await you on your next blog hop stop.
