Paper Craft Crew 237 - Everyday Hero

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our Wednesday challenge at the Paper Craft Crew

I've gone with "Cute" today.  Not something I do often but I enjoyed making this card.  I've used the fun stamp set called Everyday Hero for today's card.  The cardstock is Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Whisper White and some SAB Glimmer paper from the stack in Mint Macaron.

I love the Comic Book look of these Super heros in this stamp set and don't think they are just for children.  They can be enjoyed by both young and old.  I coloured the image with a combination of inks and Watercolour pencils and I masked and sponged around the city skyline and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes framelits.  Here's a closer look.

I was so happy with how this turned out that I made another with a Mint Macaron base and my ladies made this one at class today.  Although this stamp set did not appeal to all the ladies as one to purchase, it still made them smile and a couple had grandchildren that they could save this card for their upcoming birthdays.

Thank you for joining us this week at the Paper Craft Crew.  Looking forward to seeing your creation.  Have a great day.

Here's my card using a combination of stamps Awesomely Artistic, Gorgeous Grunge and Kinda Eclectic and dies Dragonfly, Stitched Shapes and Flourish thinlits.  I brayered inks of Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum over the Whisper White background before stamping

While I had all these inks and stamps out I made a second card with similar colours.

Paper Craft Crew 236 - Flourish Thinlits Card

Hi Everyone,

Its Wednesday once again and time for another challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.

I've opened up a new set of dies that I recently purchased called Flourish Thinlits.  I've teamed them with cardstock of Basic Black, Pool Party, Whisper White card and the SAB Glimmer paper.  The Patterned paper on the background of my card comes from the Cupcakes and Carousels paper stack.  The Silver ribbon also comes from SAB.

Here's a closer look.  The Glimmer is the Bermuda Bay colour from the 6 x 6 SAB pack that you can earn for free with a $90 purchase while stocks last.

I'm pretty happy with how this card turned out.

Thank you for joining us this week at the Paper Craft Crew.  Can't wait to see your creation.
Have a great day.

Stamp, Ink, Paper #91 - Up and Away Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Happy Tuesday and Happy Birthday Andrea.   Its time for this week's challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  Please join us.

As it's Andrea's Birthday that seemed the perfect theme for this week's challenge.  Birthdays are all about at the moment.  We just celebrated my eldest daughter's 18th Birthday as well, and while this is not the card I made for her, there is a pic below of her Birthday cake which goes with our theme this week.

My card was made with the Up and Away Bundle which includes the Lift Me Up stamps and the Sale-a-bration designer paper.  Cardstock used is Pacific Point, Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Dapper Denim.  I didn't actually make this card with Andrea in mind either, but I am always in need of Birthday cards and this is one I taught to my ladies in my last card class.

I've also used some trees on my card from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  This fold is called a Double Z fold and is still able to be folded flat to pop in an envelope.  Here's some closeup pics.

This is the view looking down so you can see the dimention this fold creates.  Its perfect for making 3d scenes.

As promised, here is a picture of my daughter's Birthday cake from the weekend.  A White Chocolate Mud cake decorated with Salted Caramel, Chocolate and Edible glitter.  Yum.

Thanks so much for joining us at Stamp, Ink, Paper.  We look forward to seeing what you create for the Birthday Bash.  Have a great day.

Melissa's Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share a card made for a friend of my daughters.  I was told she likes Red & Black.

I used some retired Raspberry Ripple card I found to go with the Black and I've used the SAB Black and White paper called Inside the Lines.

The greeting comes from the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Avant Garden.

I love how this turned out and the Birthday girl loved it too.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
