Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge PCC332


Hello, stamping friend! It’s Wednesday, and that means challenge time! The Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge PCC332 is what’s on tap today – I do hope you’ll join us!


Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge PCC332

The sketch is your starting point. You can turn it sideways or upside down; you can change the shapes to what works for your design. As long as the basic sketch is recognizable, you’re good to go! So choose your stamps, papers and inks – and let’s get creative!


For my card, I went through my (quite sizable) stash, and pulled out some old favourites from my Stampin’ Up! days. The fun bright colours & theme of the paper were perfect for a birthday card.

The paper and the stamp set are from the retired Picture Perfect Birthday suite of products. Actually, I think the stamp set is still available, but the paper and embellishments are retired.


Once I decided on the paper to use, this card came together very quickly! On the panel of Melon Mambo (bright pink) cardstock, I stamped the confetti & streamers image stamp in the same colour of ink, behind where the focal images go. Then, I cut the layers of cardstock and patterned paper. I layered Bermuda Bay cardstock behind the paper, and also used it as as a card base.

The sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set is on white cardstock, in Bermuda Bay ink. I used a banner die from my stash to die cut the sentiment, as well as another from cardstock to layer behind it.

After I layer all the pieces together with foam tape, I chose a confetti pattern of the same paper, and cut some strips. I fringed the ends, and tucked them in behind the sentiment banner. Finally, I finished off the front with some bright sequins, also from my SU! stash.

The picture above, shows the party going on in the focal area.  Doesn’t that look like fun!? I almost forgot – before layering everything together, I added some more confetti images, onto the sentiment banner.


I do hope you’ll join this fun challenge! If you’re needing some more inspiration, head over to the Paper Craft Crew blog, and see what the rest of the incredible Design Team have created. You’ll also find the link there, to add your own card.

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! :)

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