Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch challenge 208 - Bunch of Banners Christmas

Hello and welcome,

This week at the Paper Craft Crew we have a sketch for you

The cardstock used is Basic Black and Very Vanilla.  I've used some of the retired Natural Composition dsp and used Thoughtful Branches stamp and Banners for Christmas Hostess stamp along with the Bunch of Banners framelits here.

The leaves on my tree have been heat embossed with Gold and I've mat the Banner with an additional one in black.  Out of my stash came one of the Snowflakes from last year to complete my card.

Thanks for joining me today to view my card.  I hope you will also visit the Paper Craft Crew to see what our other talented designers have created.

Have a great day.

Stamp Ink Paper #62 - Thoughful Branches Sheep card

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Tuesday Stamp Ink Paper Challenge, with this great sketch.

The cardstock I've chosen is Rose Red, Soft Sky, Cucumber Crush, Smoky Slate, Whisper White and Basic Black.  I saw this great idea in one of the groups I'm in to use the Thoughful Branches bundle to make a cute sheep.  I'd like to thank Judys Creations as I cased her sheep.  I didn't have exactly the same punches as she used but I used the Leaves from May Flowers framelits for the ears, the Owl punch for the face and eyes.  One of my little flower punches for on top of the head and the Bow builder punch for the feet.  I also got to use my Fringe Scissors on the grass.

The patterned paper used on the background of my card was called English garden.  Here's a closer look at my sheep.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We can't wait to see what you create with this week's sketch at Stamp Ink Paper.

Have a great day.

Male cards using One Wild Ride stamp set

Hi Everyone,

How has your weekend been?

Today I wanted to share a couple of male cards I made recently with the One Wild Ride stamp set.   I was inspired by one of the samples in our Demonstrator only magazine and was able to use some paper from an old stack for these cards.

Here's the closeup

The cardstock for the first card is Basic Black, Whisper White and Crumb Cake.  The next is exactly the same layout with a slight change in colours.

The cardstock is Basic Black, Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Tip Top Taupe.  Here's the closeup.

Here are both of the cards side by side.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge 207 - Blooms & Birds

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Wednesday card sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.  Here is this week's sketch.

I've used cardstock of Smoky Slate, Basic Black and Crumb Cake along with the Blooms & Birds bundle and some English Garden designer paper for my card.

I've split my Happy Birthday Sentiment using Happy from the Petite Pairs and the Birthday from the From the Herd set, both of which are retired.  Here is a closeup.

Also the view of my card standing up.  You may notice Gemstone square brad which I put through the washi tape.  Who else has a stash of these in their collection?   I try to use something from from stash on most of my challenge cards.  The Washi tape also falls into that category.

We hope you will join us this week and look forward to seeing your creation at the Paper Craft Crew.
Have a great day.

Stamp Ink Paper # 61 - Thoughtful Branches

Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday and welcome to our Tic Tac Toe challenge by Lisa this week at Stamp Ink Paper.


I've decided to use the third vertical line Flowers, Blue, Emboss.  Here's what I created using the Thoughtful Branches bundle, Woodgrain embossing folder and Decorative label punch.

For the Blue I've used Cardstock of Dapper Denim and Soft Sky and combined it with Tip Top Taupe, Perfect Plum and Pear Pizazz to create my card.  This is a closeup of the stamped and die cut flowers.

I hope you like my card this week and will play along with this challenge.  Can't wait to see what you choose from our Tic Tac Toe board at Stamp Ink Paper.

Have a great day.

Blooms & Bliss Tag Cards

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards which was a design we made at my Blooms & Bliss card class from a few weeks back.

The papers in Blooms and Bliss are my favourite this year.  They are so pretty.  Added to the card were tags made with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and the Detailed Floral framelits.  Added to both cards were butterflies stamped with the Papillon Potpouri stamp set and the greeting from Blooms and Wishes stamp set.

The base on the first one is Basic Gray and the second is Rich Razzleberry.  I've used Sweet Sugar Plum and Whisper White to accessorise both cards along with my Scallop border and Washi tape punches.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
