Today is a little exciting I can officially announce that I have joined the Paper Craft Crew Design team, and I am very excited to take part in this group.  Here is the challenge card design for this weeks challenge.

PCCCS 162-205-010This is a fun sketch that was created for this challenge.   I had a lot of fun working with it.   I chose to use some new product from the New 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that went live today.   Here’s my card!

Love and affection 1.jpg

I used the new Love & Affection stamp set and the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper found on Page 45 of the new catalog.   Its in the Affectionately Yours Suite that’s on both pages 44 and 45.   I also used the background image from Sheltering Tree stamp set and my Aqua painter to achieve the watercolor look in the background on a piece of Shimmery Whisper White cardstock cut at 5 7/8 x 4 1/8.   I stamped that image in Flirty Flamingo (one of the new 2016-2017 In Colors), as well as the card base is the same color.    I cut both pieces of my DSP to 4 1/2 x 1 1/2 the whisper white piece in the front is cut at 1 1/2 x 4 1/4 and I stamped the small flower image from the Love & Affection stamp set in Flirty Flamingo, the centers are stamped in Night of Navy, and the leaves are in Cucumber Crush.  I created a double banner using both Night of Navy and Whisper White.  I layered them together and cut my banner at the same time.  Then trimmed them to fit once I got them lined up where I wanted them.

The flower was created using scraps of Flirty Flamingo, whisper white, and the Botanical Builder Framelets.  I layered them together using mini glue dots and added an enamel dot to the center and then scattered them around the card.    I added some of the gold metallic thread and attached it into place using a little snail adhesive.  To hide the adhesive I added the flower over to using a stampin’ dimensional.
