These days I’m trying to craft as much as I can. Stamping and paper crafting are totally my happy place and we all need to spend as much time in our happy place as possible given what’s going on in the world right now! So I was happy when this sketch challenge showed up in my inbox.
This week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge (PCC375) is a horizontal sketch challenge. Here’s the sketch…
The inkspiration for my card started with the Timeless Tropical cling stamp set. From there I decided to use Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake as my main colours with Very Vanilla for stamping and Pool Party for an extra splash of colour. For the Crumb Cake card mat I also wanted to add a bit of extra texture and so I used the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder.
Here’s my card…
I popped up the phrase using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Pearl Basic Jewels. The flower and leaf I fussy cut, not as bad as you might think, and then I coloured the flower using the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.
I also stamped and blended a flower on the inside of the card. I’ve been doing a lot of colouring lately with my cards, that’s another go to for me when I’m stressed or upset. I’m actually starting to wonder if all this colouring I’ve been doing has been to help keep things in check.
Either way I had fun creating this card and if you’d like to check out the other entries to this week’s challenge head over to papercraftcrew.com/pcc-375.
