Welcome back to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  This week we are returning to the normal schedule after our two week challenge that ended yesterday.  I hope that you had time to play along, if not maybe you will play along this week.  The challenge goes live at 6:30 am eastern standard time.  For this weeks sketch I used one of my must have stamp sets from the new catalog.  When I saw this set I knew I had to have it.  I just loved the way the characters were drawn and just the look of their little faces.   If you haven’t figured it out yet I am talking about Postcard Pals.  I just adore this stamp set, it makes me smile everytime I look at it.  So with that being said here’s a look at my card.

I mean really who could not just love that little face?  It’s just the cutest thing.  Okay, Okay here’s a look at this weeks sketch.  Remember that you can click on the sketch to see what all the other design team members came up with.  Speaking of the design team we have a quest designer joining us this week.  No I don’t know who it is so I will have to pop over to our webpage and see who it is myself.

Tips & Tricks:

The characters from Postcard Pals are easy to stamp, well at least I say that if the other images are a easy as the otter.  I used my Stamparatus for the stamping so that if I needed to make it darker of get a better impression.  But, it actually stamped really well.  Once I had stamped the little otter I let it dry for just a little bit and started coloring using my stampin’ blends.  My little tip here is to plan out your colors.  This one little step makes all the difference in the world.  

The above card is actually my second card, I used this stamp set on.  I actually made this card during my video tutorial.
