Still Time to Join the Challenge

It’s that time again! Time for another challenge with the Paper Craft Crew, that is. This week we have a great sketch for you. Have a look:

Colorful Seasons

Doesn’t that look fun?! Remember that the sketch is the ‘base’ for your project. You choose the colours and stamp set; you can also change the shape of the focal point, or flip the layout. I wanted to use the slingback chair from the Colorful Season stamp set, so I moved my focal point from the left, to the right.


Colorful Seasons

Doesn’t this just make you want to grab a book, your favourite beverage, and head outside?! The Colorful Seasons, and it’s Color Theory Suite of products was first on my list when the Annual catalogue made its debut to us last year. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will carry over to the new catalogue. One thing I do know, is that if it does carry over, the Bundle pricing of the stamp set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits won’t carry over – so get them now, and you’ll get 10% off the combined pricing!


When I created this card a couple of weeks ago, the weather outside was gorgeous! We set a record of 24 Celcius, and so this card reflects that feeling. Today, it’s overcast, and the forecast is for possible SNOW in 2 days!! *sigh* Spring may have arrived according to the calendar, but Mother Nature didn’t get the memo.

Create your card base with Bermuda Bay cardstock.. For the next panel, use one of the 4″ x 6″ pre-printed cards from the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack – the one with the large sunburst. Attach it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card base. The next panel is another piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, which measures 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.

On a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the branches in Soft Suede and Crumb Cake ink; the smaller branch behind the larger one. Next, stamp the flowers in Berry Burst ink. Attach this panel on top of the smaller Bermuda Bay panel, with Dimensionals. On a smaller piece of Whisper White, stamp the base of the chair in Soft Suede ink, and the material part in Bermuda Bay ink. Thankfully, this set is photopolymer, so lining up the 2 pieces is quite easy.  Now cut the chair out, with your Paper Snips.

Create the sentiment banner by stamping in Bermuda Bay ink onto a strip of Whisper White, and use the Banner Triple Punch to create tails on the left end. Now you’re ready to attach the banner behind the chair, and the whole thing onto the card front, again with Dimensionals.

Finish off your card front with a couple of Glitter Enamel Dots.

Colorful Seasons

I’m not sure who I’ll be sending this card to, so I haven’t stamped an inside sentiment yet. You can see, above, that I did stamp the branch with flowers again on top of the inside panel.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

    1. I’d like to be relaxing in that chair too, Susan! Still a bit chilly, though 😉 So glad you like my card for the Paper Craft Crew challenge.

  1. Great card, Deborah! I am so looking forward to being in that chair! I probably am closer than you and Susan, but still not there yet. (But your card can let me dream! I have a snowflake in my weather app for next week. REALLY?) Lovely card – and a great take on the sketch!

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
