So I had so bad news on the family front this week and decided to use the Paper Craft Crew Sketch to help me out in creating a Sympathy card for my Godmother who lost her Husband on the weekend.
Hope you enjoyed my card. A lot of love and hard work definitely went into this one.
Supplies Used: Stamps: Papillon Potpourri and Petite Pairs (SU!) Paper/Cardstock: Browns (Recollections), Beau Chateau DSP and Vellum (SU!) Inks: Jet Black (Staz-On) Dies/ Punches: Scallop Trim Border Punch (SU!) Embellishments: Midnight Muse Ribbon (SU!), Brads and Flower from my stash.
The simpler the card sketch the more diffculty I have with it. I'm not sure if it is not being able to use all the items I have or maybe it's making sure that everything is perfect since I can't cover up my uh oh's with another layer or cardstock that is strategically placed .
My Card turned out as such. (Not my best work but I like how the butterflies stand out on the plain background)
Cardstock: Stampin Up Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
Stamps: Stampin Up Papillon Potpourri
Ink: Stampin Up Classic Ink in Garden Green
Misc: Stampin Up Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly and Scallop Border Punch. Basic Rhinestones.

So I figure better late than never. It's been a busy week and with a holiday yesterday I am down to the wire in getting my card in for the challenge for Paper Craft Crew this week.
This weeks sketch is as shown.
and my version in card form is:
The Supplies I used were:
Cardstock: Stampin Up Sahara Sand, Daffodil Delight, Riding Hood Red, Pool Party and Vintage Verses DSP
Stamps: Secret Garden and That's the Ticket.
Dies and Punches: Secret Garden Framelits and Duo Ticket Punch.
Ink: Stampin Up Daffodil Delight, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede and Versamark.
Misc: Black Embossing Powder, Paper Doily, Stampin Up Basic Pearls, Dimensional and Tombow Mono Adhesive.
This weeks sketch and colour combo are found below.
I wasn't exactly sure what to do at first but I thought why not stick with something valentiney since purple is in the colour scheme and I really wanted to FINALLY use my Gnomenclature and Gnome Sweet Snome stamp sets. Ever since I moved into my new house I have this thing for gnomes and can't wait until we do the landscaping so that I can have my very own army of gnomes throughout my flower beds. But for now I will have to stick to the card.
I stayed more or less true to the sketch this week but had fun with the colours.
Cardstock: Stampin Up! Whisper White and Perfect Plum.
Inks: Stampin Up! Classic Ink in Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
Stamps: Gnomenclature and Gnome Sweet Gnome
Dies and Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug Argyle Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 18, Stampin Up! Fashionable Hearts Embosslit, Corner Rounder.
Misc: Stampin Up! Crystal Effects and Dimensional Foam Adhesive.
Hope you enjoy my card and it brings you some inspiration and as always please don't forget to vote!

It's been a long week of traveling for business, but first thing I did when I got back was take some time to unwind and make a card for Paper Craft Crew.
The sketch for the week looked like this.
I was excited about this sketch and knew exactly what I wanted to do but I ended up rotating the sketch 90 degrees and ended up with this. (I made two cards one masculine for my hubby and one a little more girly for my sister)
Cardstock: Stampin Up Whisper White, Basic Gray and Silver Glimmer Paper.
Stamps: You're My Type, Hearts a Flutter and En Francais
Dies & Punches: Heart A Flutter Framelits, Owl Punch, Corner Rounder, Honeycomb Embossing Folder
Inks: Stampin Up! Melon Mambo, Real Red and Basic Gray and Versamark
Misc: Clear, Black and Pewter Stampin Up! Embossing Powders, White Ribbon, Silver Dazzling Details and Ruby Red Liquid Pearls. Flower from Artisan Embellishments pack.
