Be Inspired by PCC248

By | June 19, 2017

Happy Monday, hope you had a great weekend. I was able to spend time in the pool both days until the thunderstorms rolled in Sunday afternoon, then it became chores and craft time. It’s always best to get pool time in when you can on the weekend, no guarantee the next weekend will be as nice.

Todays card is for the FIRST Inspiration Challenge for Challenge #248 with the Paper Craft Crew.  The design team has some really awesome samples that are sure to inspire.  if I had only checked this out before I posted my Friday card, it would have worked as well, you can check that out here. Click on the image below to check out the Paper Craft Crew blog and play along, it’s fun!

For my card I decided on Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and Bermuda Bay as my colors.  To add texture to the card I decided to use the new Stampin’ Up! Embossing Paste and a Brick Pattern Party Decorative Mask. The Embossing Paste is white and I wanted color so I added few drops of Dapper Denim reinker and some Dazzling Diamond Glitter mixed together on a Silicone Craft sheet, a really like the added sparkle in the embossing paste that matches the sparkle in the Clear Facetted Gem in the center of the middle flower.  To die cut the overlaying flowers, I used Washi tape to hold the two dies together so make it easier. One set of leaves are full strength Lemon Lime Twist and the others where stamped off first for a lighter image.  Sentiment was stamped in Dapper Denim and die cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit and adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensionals. All flowers were also adhered with a Dimensionals, the center flower has two layered together, this makes it easy to add the leaves with liquid glue.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day – Craft On!

    Wow – I LOVE the glitter and Dapper Denim ink added to the embossing paste, Karen! That’s a real showstopper! I love your take on the Inspiration; the colours are gorgeous, and the shapes of the flowers and leaves mimic the patterns on the pillow. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew for this challenge! ~Deborah, DT
