Paper Craft Crew


Color Challenge #183


PCCC183 Color Challenge Design Team Submission by Pam Staples featuring Party Wishes v2 #partywishes #stampinup #pamstaples #papercraftcrewOK… I’m totally loving the #imbringingbirthdaysback campaign started by Stampin’ Up! employee, Shannon West!  Yesterday, I received my first birthday card and it was so awesome.  Really, I would LOVE to send you a birthday card but in order to do that you need to email me your name, address & birthday.  You can also visit and send me your Birthday & Address.  

Since I’m on board with the #imbringingbirthdaysback campaign, you’ll probably see LOTS of birthday cards over the next year.  Here is this weeks card that I created for the Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge featuring Lost Lagoon, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss. The stamp set I used is Party Wishes from the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.

My goal is quick, clean and easy to assemble.  I started with a card front base of Blackberry Bliss layered with Whisper White.  In the background, I stamped the cake with Smoky Slate with the Happy Birthday stamped using the Olive Green.  Then I used Washi Tape at the base of the cake.  Washi Tape is an easy to use and a great way for adding detail to a card.  

The candles are stamped using the Blackberry Bliss then punched out using the candle punch from the Party Punch Pack.  As a finishing touch, I added a Designer Button tied with a piece of “thread” pulled off the the Smoky Slate Thick Bakers twine.  This is a fun card, quick to make and will be going into the mail tomorrow!


Here is this weeks Card Sketch with the Paper Craft Crew.  If you are having a mental creative block, card sketches are a great way to kickstart your creative juices.  Why not stop over at the Paper Craft Crew, create a card inspired by this weeks Card Sketch and post to the blog!
