Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #PCC322: Meant to Be

Good morning!  Aren't you feeling the love for this Meant to Be bundle?  Love all the different heart pieces and designs that you can mix and match.  Today the Paper Craft Crew has a fun color challenge and the funny thing is that this challenge has one color in common with yesterday's color challenge, Petal Pink so it's perfect for another love themed card, doesn't have to be strictly Valentine's.

I used Petal Pink cardstock for the cardbase and then embossed a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the Big Shot and Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder for the cardfront.

Next I cut a circle out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits and then embossed it with the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder.


I used the Be Mine Framelits to cut out the strip of little hearts twice, once using Silver Foil and again using the Lovely Lipstick Foil (an awesome Sale-a-bration Freebie, you will want to stock up on this stuff!!)  I used the Meant to Be stamp set to stamp the heart image using Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then used my Stampin' Write Markers to color the flowers using the colors for the challenge.  Then I used the Be Mine Framelits to cut out the heart as well as the Petal Pink scalloped circle border (dimensionals were used to just pop up the white heart.

The final touch was to add a bow I tied using Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon.


What's not to love about this card?  Lots of hearts, foil bling, and textures to really dress up this card and make the perfect statement for your loved one!  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing, we would love for you to play along with us and share your creations.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #306: Meant to Be

Good morning!  Hopefully everyone on the East Coast enjoyed our little snow storm this week, it was perfect (not too much snow and we had time so we were prepared and could enjoy most of the snow from home, and of course Aidan enjoyed having an extra day off from school).  I also find crafting just a little more fun when it's snowing and I had a friend come over which was lots of fun and full of Valentine's Projects.  Today I'm sharing my card for this week Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge that was one of the cards I made during the snow.

I have to say I love the Meant to Be stamp set and coordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits so I've decided to make them my featured products of the week this week so I'll be sharing lots of great ideas perfect for all your Valentine's crafting.

I started with Petal Pink cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock that was a mat for the Fresh Fig cardfront.  On the cardfront I used the Big Shot and Be Mine Stitched Framelits to embosss the large heart image (there are two pieces in this framelit set that don't cut out, just emboss) and then used the detailed heart framelit and cut it out using Whisper White cardstock for detail inside the larger heart.

Next I added a piece of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (which is perfect for this color combination) and then took a piece of Very Vanilla 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and died it using Mossy Meadow ink before wrapping it around the cardfront.  The greeting is from the Meant to Be stamp set and was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Petal Pink cardstock before being cut out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits and attached with dimensionals.  The final touch was to add three of Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with a Copper Sharpie Marker (you can also use Stampin' Blends to color the epoxy shapes).

This is a great color combo, that I've never tried before but is perfect for that springtime feeling (even if we do have 8" of snow on the ground).  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing for inspiration and we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.

Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #PCC321: Hey Love

Good morning!  I have the honor of starting the new year by joining an amazing group of creative designers as part of the Paper Craft Crew Design Team and can't for all the fun we have in store this year.  As you know I love challenges as a great way to stretch your creativity and learn so much so I'm excited for this new opportunity and to share with you.  Today the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge is perfect to show off a fun new Valentine's stamp in the Occasions catalog, Hey Love.


I started with Smoky Slate cardstock for the cardbase and then added a card front that was Basic Black cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and Sparkle Embossing Folder.  Next I took one of the Colored Doilies and flipped it over (the backside is white) and sponged it with Real Red ink and let it dry.

For the stamped image I used the Hey Love set and stamped using Momento ink on Whisper White cardstock and used by Smoky Slate, Real Red, and Light Basic Black Blends to color this cute gorilla in before cutting him out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Before attaching this piece to the cardfront I added some Gold Metallic Thread behind it for several loops of blingy fun. 

To finish off the card I stamped the greeting in Basic Black ink on Smoky Slake cardstock and then cut it out with the Classic Label Punch and attached it with mini dimensionals.

How fun is this little guy?  I know several people who this card would be perfect for and this stamp set as lots of cute images for those you want to take a more fun approach to your project, not all full of hearts and flowers.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using this sketch and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create using this sketch as inspiration.

SSINKspiration 2019 Sale-a-bration Favorite Stamp Set: Hello Cupcake

Good morning!  How are you enjoying the extended holiday festivities?  I love this week since we're all off and get to just relax (and I try to get a few things done around the house).  Despite placing my preorder for the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalog at the beginning of the month I haven't had a chance to play with any of my goodies until this week.  Today the SSINKspiration team is sharing projects using our favorite stamp set from this years Sale-a-bration brochure.  There are so many great products this week but given my love of sweets, and cupcakes in particular it should be no surprise that the Hello Cupcake stamp set is one of my favorites!

For this card I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Berry Burst cardstock and embossed with the Big Shot and Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder before adding a strip of Early Espresso Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper package.  For the ribbon I used Calypso Coral 1/8" Sheer Ribbon (but honestly I thought it was flirty flamingo, haha!)

For the main stamped image I used Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, and Berry Burst to stamp the cupcake images (and since they're photopolymer lining up was a breeze).  I used the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out both the cupcake and the greeting.  I sponged around the edge of the greeting with Early Espresso ink and then attached the greeting circle with dimensionals.

This cupcake looks good enough to eat, I love it!
