PCC240 a Sketch Challenge

By | April 21, 2017

So how are you today?  I’m not bad, it’s Friday and I took a vacation day!  Last night we were with friends watching the Pittsburgh Penguins win round 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. I was hoping to sleep in today and I did, a whole 45 minutes. For some reason the dogs just don’t understand “sleep in” and need to go outside at the scheduled time each morning, oh well, weather was nice and I watched the sun rise.

Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge, click on the image below to check out their blog and see what idea’s their design team came up with, you might even decide to play along.

For my card I started with a card base of Tip Top Taupe, one of the retiring In-Colors and pieces of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. The greeting is from Beautiful You stamp set (you know the set with the lady dancing in the rain!). I stamped the greeting in Old Olive and used a Stitched Shape Framelit to die cut it and backed it with a Layering Scallop Circle Die Cut.  The Decorative Label punch was used to create an interesting finish to the tab at the top right of the Whisper White paper, a little paper clip finishes it off.

Some of the products used are on the retired list and are available only while supply lasts, unfortunately some are already sold out. Any combination of designer series paper can be substituted to recreate this card.

In conjunction with the Retiring List, I’m excited to share my very own promotion from now until May 12th.   When you spend at least $50 with me and add your order to the current Hostess Code (QVUEB26H), I’ll happily send you:

·    A printed copy of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog (I send them to all of my current customers) AND

·    A Free Product from the Upcoming Annual Catalog. I’ll send you an incredible, new accessory from the upcoming catalog when it’s released in June.  While I can’t yet tell you what it is, I’ll tell you it’s valued at $5, and you’ll love it!

If your order is over $150, I hope you’ll use all of the Host Rewards you’ve earned.  Otherwise, I’d love for you to add your order to the current Hostess Code QVUEB26H

    Such a lovely card, Karen! The Succulent Garden DSP is gorgeous; I like how you pulled the colours from it for your palette. So glad you joined our Paper Craft Crew challenge this week – hope you’ll be back soon! ~Deborah, DT

    Hi Karen, you mastered that succulent stamp set that I’ve miserably failed at. I like how you tweaked the sketch to work for you, yet you can still see the sketch. Clear as mud? LOL. We are so happy that you participated with us at the Paper Craft Crew Challenge this week and certainly hope to see you tomorrow as our next challenge will be put up then. You make lovely cards.
