Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch


Flower Patch Stamp Set


Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 106 by Pam Staples #papercraftcrew #stampinup #pamstaples #sunnygirlscraps

I really love the way this card turned out!  The card sketch for this weeks challenge is lots of fun and a great way to feature Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or a great stamp set.  The Paper Craft Crew Design Team has some really great and diverse samples this week.  Hey… Did you know that when you join my Stampin' Up! Team you are automatically welcome to JOIN the Paper Craft Crew Design Team (although you must ASK to join).  

SunnyGirlScraps Tips & Tricks:

  • The angled background features the Gold Soiree SPECIALTY Designer Series Paper.  I really felt that this card sketch is perfect for highlighting the Designer Series Paper.
  • The Gold Soiree SPECIALTY Designer Series Paper Features a Metallic Gold Ink!  I absolutely LOVE the feel of this Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  • When stamping with the Flower Patch Stamp Set, place a piercing mat under the paper you are stamping on for a crisp, clean image.
  • Use the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits to cut out your flower image and then layer the designs for flowers with dimension.
  • The Flower Patch and Flower Fair Framlits can CURRENTLY be purchased as a bundle meaning you save 15% on the two products.  ALSO… Now is a GREAT time to buy a Big Shot with the Stampin' Up! Big Shot Promotion.
  • Use the 1" Square Punch for a quick, easy banner!
  • The Background is created using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with Smoky Slate.
  • Consider creating a SQUARE card – yes, they are more expensive to mail – BUT, they are fun to make.
  • Don't forget to add the finishing touches to your card!  On my card, I used the Candy Dots to add a little accent in the upper left corner then one Candy Dot in the center of my card.
