Paper Craft Crew

Card Sketch #197 

Love You Lots Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card by Pam Staples for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #197. #lotsoflove #stampinup #pamstaples

The first day of June is a BIG day over for the Stampin’ Up! family as the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog goes LIVE. I’ve been working hard preparing for my Catalog Launch party.  Last night was my first “open house” and I have another “open house” on Saturday.  In honor of our new Pop of Paradise Stamp Set, the theme for my Catalog Launch party is Flip Flops & Flamingos.  Anyone that brings a flamingo and wears Flip Flops receives a small gift.  

As part of my preparations for the catalog launch party, I’ve been making new samples and today I have a card created for Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 197.  The hedge hogs from the Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set are so sweet and adorable.  This card reflects a combination of products that are new and old found in the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  There is just so much to love about the new catalog… So, have I raved about it enough yet?  Yeah, I’m head over heals in LOVE with this new catalog.  I get excited each year about the new catalog but this one is definitely a notch above and totally AMAZING!  If you don’t have a catalog, PLEASE click HERE to request your catalog today! 

Love You Lots Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card by Pam Staples for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #197. #lotsoflove #stampinup #pamstaplesLove You Lots Card Recipe:

  • Using Basic Gray Archival Ink, stamp the hedge hogs from the Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set on a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.
  • Cut two strips of Designer Series Paper measuring 1 7/8″ by 4 1/4″.  I used the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Melon Mambo from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  To distress the edges of the Designer Series Paper, I used the edge of my paper snips.
  • On the base layer of Whisper White card stock, use the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set to stamp a background with the Melon Mambo classic ink.
  • Attach the layers of Designer Series Paper with each layer angled on the Whisper White card base then attach the stamped layer.
  • Stamp the “Hello” from the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set using either Basic Black Archival Ink or the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  
  • Punch out the “Hello” using the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch.
  • Randomly attach Silver Metallic Thread behind the “Hello” and attach to the card front.
  • Adhere the card front to a layer of Melon Mambo card stock and attach to your card base.
  • Finish the card by adding some bling!  I’ve used three Rhinestone Basic Jewels for just the right amount of added sparkle.
