This week at the Paper Craft Crew we have a fun sketch for you to try out! It's a simple sketch with SO many options! Check it out:

Here's what I decided to do:

To choose my colours, I pretty much put my hands in a box that's been holding leftovers from my last class and odds and ends from previous creations. It think it worked out! :)

My base is Pool Party with a layer of Calypso Coral and then a layer of So Saffron. I then added a layer of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

I had a little strip of Calypso Coral left over from trimming the larger layer and it was just perfect to tuck under the Daisy. I added a length of Night of Navy Bakers Twine for a little bit of contrast.

I stamped and punched two daisies in So Saffron and attached them with a Stampin' Dimensional. Then I stamped the Congratulations sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and then punched it out using the Classic Label Punch. I trimmed the punched sentiment and tucked it under the Gold Faceted Gem.

I am in LOVE with the brand new Daisy set! And it seems SO many of our demonstrators are also in love with it! Sadly, this bundle WON'T be available to order on June 1st, as it was SO popular with our demonstrators that we went through MORE than a usual years supply in the first two weeks of our pre-order.

On the up shot, by the time you can order YOUR Daisy Bundle, there'll be SO many ideas on Pinterest that you'll be able to create for MONTHS with everything you've seen.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Crew have been up to HERE.

Tic Tac Toe - Three in a row!

It's a game of Tic Tac Toe over at the Paper Craft Crew this week! And for a change...I didn't pick my squares from all over the board - LOL!

Check it out:

I chose Bright Colours, Favourite Stamp Set and Ribbon - SEE? All in a row!

And here's my card:

My favourite stamp set is Gorgeous Grunge! It's retiring this year and I'm sad to see it go, but I'll console myself with my next favourite: Touches of Texture. And there's a few new stamp sets in the NEW Annual 2017-2018 catalogue that are sure to become favourites too!

Here's where the ribbon comes in:

I used the ribbon from the Love Bundle that was in the outgoing Occasions Catalogue. I like that it's narrow and not "in your face", if you know what I mean. Plus it was red and matched my card base - LOL!

Take a look at this fun fold:

The card is 5 ½" by 11" so you can still create one out of a regular size (8 ½" x 11") piece of cardstock. If you have 12" x 12" cardstock, you can get two from one sheet!

And here's the inside:

And...I'm sure it's pretty obvious that I used bright colours - LOL!

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Crew have been up to HERE and come play along with us!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Gorgeous Grunge (retiring), Happy Birthday Gorgeous (coming in the new catalogue!)
INK: Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Real Red
PAPERS: Whisper White and Real Red Cardstock
ACCESSORIES: Big Shot, Die (coming in the new catalogue!), Ribbon, Fine Tip Glue Pen

Happy Stampin'!

Featuring Daisy Delight

We received this stamp set as part of the Prize Patrol at OnStage back in April, I just love it! I recently ordered the punch (you'll be able to get it as a bundle on June 1st) and I'm so happy with the way all the cards I create with this set turn out - SO FUN!!

We had a fun little sketch to play with today:

I even loved the colours our fearless leader chose - so bright and cheerful! I used the bright green (Lemon-Lime Twist) as one of the layers on my card.

You have to be careful with Lemon-Lime Twist! On it's own, it's EYE SEARINGLY bright! But when you mix it with the other new InColours, it's not so bad!

My card base is Berry Burst and I added a layer of Lemon Lime Twist Designer Series Paper from the Fresh Florals Pack.

I added a couple of extra strips of Berry Burst DSP to the main panel and stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst as well.

Some more Berry Burst for the daisies (I stamped and punched two), a Clear Faceted Gem (because hey! Why not?) and a few wraps of Bakers Twine to finish it off.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the crew have been up to HERE.

Sneak Peek!!

If you follow me on either Facebook or Instagram (maybe both?), last week I took a picture of a snippet of a BRAND NEW DESIGNER SERIES PAPER.

Today's card features another peek at it - YAY!! To see some of the rest of it, keep checking back and to see the FULL reveal, be sure to RSVP for my Open House on June 10th!

Our challenge this week at the Paper Craft Crew was to use three of the four colours here:

I chose Pale Yellow (ish), Coral and Deep Blue. And this is what I came up with:

The colours in the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper were perfect for the challenge and I couldn't have been more thrilled. I think it's going to be my new favourite paper! I got some after our OnStage event at the beginning of April and I just ordered another pack yesterday with my pre-order.

I started off with floral DSP and used it to create an ATC (the Daffodil Delight cardstock is 2 ½" x 3 ½"). To the ATC, I added the Daisy hanging off the edge and the sentiment from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Check this part out:

The Faceted Gems that will be available to order on June 1st are so much fun! You'll get three different sizes on each colour sheet (there's a silver/clear version too!).

And here's the inside:

I added a single stem with some buds on it (also part of the stamp set - two step stamping) and some Night of Navy doodles around the edge.

What do you think?
