Happy Saturday, hope you all have some great plans for the weekend. The weather here will be ‘summer’ like, so a great day to spend some time outside. My husband and I have been discussing how we plan to decorate this holiday season – we love have the Christmas tree up with the lights on in the evening. We have decided we need floral decoration for above the television, over the next few weeks I will planning and working on that, will share the final project with you.
Here is the sketch for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #111, one of my favorite challenges to participate in. This week my card from sketch challenge #109 was picked as a featured artisan, thank you to all who voted for my card. Remember to check out their blog for this weeks cards from their design team and other crafter just like you, who knows you may want to add a card as well!
It took a few days to come up with the idea for my card, but once I knew what I wanted to use as the focal image – a flower from the Flower Patch stamp set, the rest just fell into place. The card base is Crumb Cake, layered with a mat of Calypso Coral and piece of Park Lane Designer Series Paper. A piece of vintage Crumb Cake Taffeta Ribbon divides the designer paper for me. On a piece of Whisper White about 3″x2″ I stamped a background of small dots in Wild Wasabi using a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge and the circles from Kinda Electic in Crumb Cake to add detail. The flower is three separate stamps from Flower Patch (which has a matching framelit set) in Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss and Calypso Coral, layered with dimensionals. Butterflies are from the Kinda Electic stamp set. There is a piece of Whisper white covered with Watercolor Wonder Washi tape and centered on the right of the background white for a little interest. When I set the banner with greeting on the card I did not like how ‘white’ the left of the stamped greeting looked so I used a Gorgeous Grunge stamp to blend that side into the card better. A few candy dots and jewels for bling and a card is born! Great for a birthday or any special event!
