Paper Craft Crew Challenge #PCC390

Welcome to this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge! 

This week we have Vertical Sketch #PCC390 for you to play with. I had such a good time putting this card together. I started with the smallest Celebration Labels Die. I could have used an Oval Die but when you have new dies to play with, well you just have to.
I also wanted to ink up one of these cute little Gnomes from the Gnome For The Holidays Stamp Set. And since there are Snowflakes in this little Gnomes hat I grabbed the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set and the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper and got to work. 

The card Base is Highland Heather Cardstock.
The Card Front is from the Snowflake Splendor DSP. stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss powder.
The Celebration Labels Die cut is Whisper White Cardstock.
The Sentiment Banner is Purple Posy Cardstock stamped with Highland Heather Ink. 
The Gnome is stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends Markers.
The Inside Layer has a strip of the DSP at the bottom with a few Highland Heather Snowflakes Peeking out above the strip.
I used the Envelope Dies to cut the Scalloped Envelope Flap from the DSP.

I hope you like my take on this week's sketch. If you would like to play along with us just click on the sketch image and you will be taken to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog.

Third Thursdays Blog Hop: Theme - Holiday Debut



Welcome to the 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Holiday Debut. Have you seen the new Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog yet? It is so full of products that I want in my collection.  One of my favorites is the Ornamental Envelopes Bundle. Now I have used the Envelope Dies in a couple of my recent posts, here & here. Today I am going to show you another reason that this bundle ( I saved 10% by purchasing the stamp set & dies together) is one of my favorites. I created a new Gift Card Holder, I know I make a lot of these, but they are so useful.


I started by stamping the Ornaments on Whisper White Cardstock twice, one in Real Red and the other in Shaded Spruce. I needed these to be straight so I used my Stamparatus for this. I used the Ornament Die in the Envelope Dies to cut the Real Red Ornaments and the largest Stitched So Sweetly Scalloped Rectangle Die to cut the Shaded Spruce Ornaments. You will notice I kept the Ornaments to the left side. I needed room for the Sentiment Label. Which was also a Stitched Scalloped Rectangle. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set. I chose it because the Font style was real close to the Inside Layer sentiment, which is from the Wrapped In Christmas Stamp Set. This is not my normal Gift Card Holder Style, I am calling this a Fun Flap Gift Card Holder. What do you think about this one? It still meets my needs. Which is that it has to fit an A2 envelope & easy to mail.


I really miss the 3/4" circle punch. I used to use it for the finger hole on the gift card holder flap. But I found an acceptable alternative in the Label Me Lovely Punch. Although with this style of gift card holder I don't think it is necessary. 


I hope you liked my project. Now it is time to go and see what Tatiana has created for your look at the Holiday Debut. Just click on the image below.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #PCC389



This weeks challenge is a horizontal sketch. I am still working my way through my pre order from the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog. For this weeks sketch I am using the new Cherish The Season Bundle ( includes the Cherish The Season Stamp set and the coordinating Sounds Of The Season Dies) when you purchase these two together you save 10%.

I started by using the two smallest Bell Dies and the Pine Branch dies to cut the images from some Silver Foil Cardstock. The Card Front is from the  Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Stitched Rectangle is from a scrap of the same DSP. There is another Stitched Rectangle underneath I thought it made a great background for the Silver Bells & Pine branches.  I used what I call the Inside Layer sentiment on my Card Front. I taped off the words on the stamp and stamped the each exposed line of words with VersaMark Ink on Misty Moonlight Cardstock and heat embossed them with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. After I had the three lines embossed I used a 3/8" sentiment die to cut them out . When I assembled the the card elements on the Misty Moonlight Card Base I moved everything down and to the left a little to allow more of the Card Front Image to show. The Inside Layer is Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the greeting with Misty Moonlight Ink. Then stamped the Pine Branches with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed them with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. I added a Silver Foil Pine Branch on top.

If you would like to play along with us this week, just click on the Sketch Image and you will be taken to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog where you can  post your take on this challenge.
