Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog - PCC484

Welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, PCC484 for you to play with. My choice for this challenge
was the middle vertical line, Die Cuts, Leaves & Embossing. The stamp set is Soft Seedlings, a Stampin' Up! distINKtive rubber stamp set. I 1st inked up the leaf & seedlings stamp with Crushed Curry Ink. Then using a Sponge Dauber and Cajun Craze Ink I dabbed a little on the leaf and seedling tips. Using a Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker I colored the stem. Huffed on the stamp and then stamped at the top of my Basic White Cardstock piece. I die cut this with the Scalloped contours Dies, again keeping the image towards the top. I stamped the so grateful with Early Espresso Ink. I speckled this layer with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush. My card front is from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper (DSP) and has been embossed with the Leaf Fall 3E Embossing Folder. The card front is matted to a Cajun Craze layer. I popped up the scalloped layer onto the embossed card front layers with Stampin' Dimensionals. The completed card front was then adhered to the Basic White Thick card base. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone basic Jewels for a little bling.

I hope you liked my take on this weeks challenge. You too, can also participate in this fun weekly challenge. Just create a project using this weeks theme and post it to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog. We can't wait to see what you will create.

Trees For Sale & Tree Lot Dies


Tree Lot Pop Up Card

I have been obsessed with the hexagon pop up platform cards for about a week now. After watching Marcie Besecker's video I went looking for other videos on this type of pop up card. Most of the videos used platform dies or SVG files for electronic cutters. Then I found Kathy's Random Acts of Stamping video. She shared a video tutorial for a hexagon pop up platform card without using a die. I used her measurements to create the platform base. I added a scalloped edge to the skirt using the Penned Flowers Dies. I also used the Horizon Dies (retired) for the top of the snowy inserts. Then the really fun part was creating the tree lot scene using the Trees For Sale Stamp Set and the Sale-A-Bration Tree Lot Dies (sold out). I took my color scheme from the Sale-A-Bration Rings of Love Designer Series Paper which I used for the outside trim on the skirt. The sentiment comes from the Decorated With Happiness Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red Ink on Basic White Cardstock. I used the Stitched Rectangles dies to die cut the sentiment. The little holly leaves are from the Snowman Magic Stamp set and are stamped with Mint Macron ink. I added Real Red Pearlized Effects to the berries.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge - PCC483


Welcome to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

This week we have a vertical sketch, PCC483, for you to play with. This sketch leaves you with lots of
room for interpretation. I chose to use the Boughs of Holly Suite Collection for my project. This is a two-step stamp set. I found it was easiest to use may stamparatus to stamp the holly leaves. I have used Pear Pizzazz Ink for the background stamp and Mossy Meadow Ink for the detail stamp. I stamped 2 of the largest Holly leaves and die cut them out with the coordinating Holly Berry Dies. I embossed a piece of Basic White Cardstock with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder (the pine branches). Then die cut this and a strip of the Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered the stitched rectangles to a piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock. This became my card front. I adhered the large holly leaves to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped my sentiment with Cherry Cobbler Ink on Basic White Cardstock and then die cut it with the sentiment die included in the Holly Berry Dies. I also die cut a scrap of Mossy Meadow Cardstock to mat the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Mini Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals. I adhered the completed card front to the Old Olive card base. I used Gold Brushed Metallic Dots to accent my project.

I hope you liked my take on this weeks sketch. You too, can also participate in this fun weekly challenge. Just create a project using this weeks sketch and post it to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge Blog.We can't wait to see what you will create.
