I can't believe 2014 has arrived and I want to wish everyone a VERY Happy New Year!  May all your dreams, wishes and prayers come true.  So, it is now time for another card sketch with the Paper Craft Crew.  I invite you to come play along with this weeks Card Sketch #74.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #74

Happy New Year!

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 74The card base to this weeks Design Team card for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #72 is Whisper White followed by a layer of Daffodil Delight then Smoky Slate embossed using the Chevron Embossing Folder with my trusty Big Shot. 

One of my favorite techniques to use with ribbon is to Gather or "Ruche" the ribbon and in this instance I used the Daffodil Delight 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon.  Then I attached the Daffodil Delight chevron punched pieces which were created using the Chevron Border Punch.  

I stamped two Champagne Flutes using the Encore Silver Stamp Pad from the Happy Hour Stamp set in honor of ringing in the New Year.  The three flowers in the bottom right hand corner were made using the Boho Blossoms punch then finished with a Smoky Slate Candy Dot.  The final touch was stamping the Happy New Year using Smoky Slate classic ink then cut out using the Arrow from the On Film Framelits DIes (New PRODUCT Available January 3rd!).  I also layered a second arrow behind that is cut out from Daffodil Delight.

This is a fun card and really turned out cute in person.  Now, I must send it off in the mail!  One of my goals this year is to be more diligent in SHARING my creations by actually sending them via SNAIL MAIL versus hoarding them for myself.  


In the meantime, here is this weeks sketch with the Paper Craft Crew…  Please come and play along with us as we love to see your creations.  We also vote on submissions and are now posting the Featured Artisans on Tuesday (2 weeks behind) the day before the new sketch posts.  So, we just posted the Featured Artisans for Card Sketch #72 on Tuesday.
