Hello stampers, crafters, and friends I am so glad that you are joining me today, for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  This week we have a wonderful color challenge for you, and I am featuring a little sneak Peek of some products in the upcoming new 2017 Annual Catalog.  Here’s a look at my card for today’s challenge.

Colorful Season Stamp set, Eastern Beauty Stamp Set, Eastern Beauty Bundle, watermelon wonder cardstock, pcc242, #rickadkins, #rcinsmonstudio

Here’s a look at this weeks sketch challenge card.

Tips & Tricks:

  • When stamping the sentiment image, I had to stamp the outline image first and added the inside images afterward.
  • The branch and flowers came from the same thinlit dies that are in the upcoming catalog.   The name escapes me at the moment.   I popped the flowers up on mini glue dots, while the sentiment was popped up using stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used three different new stamp sets for this card.  I used Special Celebrations (which is a wonderful inside and out greeting set coming in June), Eastern Beauty photopolymer stamp set (which you can get now as part of the Eastern Palace Suite Bundles), and the upcoming Colorful Seasons photopolymer stamp set.  I also used some of the new matching thinlits to cut the images out.   

The designer series paper came from the new Color Theory Paper stack which will be available in the new catalog.  It has some wonderful fun designs (like this ombré piece on my card) which were themed around paint chips.  

The colors I used were watermelon wonder, calypso coral, night of navy, and so saffron.  


I hope that you take the time to play along with us this week at the Paper Craft Crew’s website.  Thanks for dropping by.

Happy Stampin’
