First let me start by saying Happy Friday, sure do like these short work weeks, even if I get confused on what day it is!
Here is my card for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge. This card actually came together rather easy for me. I knew I wanted to use items from my pre-order for the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up Catalog (one of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator) which goes live June 2, 2014. The new items include: Blackberry Bliss Cardstock, ink and ribbon; Hello Honey Cardstock, Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and the Something to Say stamp set.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card:
The base of the card is Sahara Sand, with a layer of Moonlight Designer Series paper and Hello Honey backed by a piece of Blackberry Bliss. To hide the seam a piece of Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon was used. Starting from left to right, the Happy Birthday is from the “Something to Say” stamp set and die cut with a banner from the Bitty Banner Framelits (I cut the one side of the banner so it was straight), backed by dimensionals and accented with Jewel. The cake is from the “Embellished Events” stamp set, embossing in Pewter on Whisper White and backed by Blackberry Bliss, and die cut using the Window Frames Framelits. The base of the cake plate is accented with Jewels. The “Seize the Cake” is from the “Something to Say” stamp set, embossed in Pewter on Hello Honey, die cut with a Word Bubble Framelit, backed by a dimensional. The flower, heart and star is from the “Something to Say” stamp set and punched out with the matching Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack. There is a Jewel in the center of the flower.
