Papercraft Star 14

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Papercraft Star
Challenge 14 begins NOW !

This week was a recipe.

Make a Card
Base: 5.5 x 5.5
Mat: 5 x 5
Score Mat 5 times at 1/4 inch
3 Flowers from Die Cut or Punch
3 Buttons & Twine

Now, the one very very cool thing about these kinds of cards is that you don't have to plan a whole lot! You just follow the recipe, and what it is is what it is. Piece of cake.

I did use my SCAL to make the flowers, very easy. The paper is double sided, so I used both sides for the flowers. The wonderful bookplate is Tim Holtz, of course. I smooshed a bunch of blue stickles all over it, and it looks very cool and different.

Enter your submissions between now and noon on Saturday 9/25, and voting will conclude on Monday 9/27.

Here is the small print for you crazy small print readers (and I know who you are...)(Rose)

Paper : K & Co
Brown paper : Coredinations
Book Plate : Tim Holtz
Stickles (blue)
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (gold)
Jewelry beading cord
Teeny buttons I forget
Brads I dunno

  1. Jan, I love your interpretation of the recipe for this card... you composed it beautifully. I love the use of the metal frame for the sentiment too... fabulous!

  2. I am really loving these colors together! The rust color with that blue is just gorgeous. I also love the way you did two sets of the score lines and had them cross. Another great card Jan!


  3. I love how you combined the rusty brown with the cool blues and greens, very pretty!

  4. Love the vintage look of your embossing on that rust paper and do I spy some doodling on your flowers? :) Wonderful!

  5. Love those flowers, the blue of them just pops off the rust colored background! Beautiful.

  6. I love what you did! You mixed those colors extremely well! Seriously, I would have never thought to put those colors together! We have extrememly talented designers! I am so lucky to be a part of some a great team!

  7. Jan - great take on the challenge. Love the colors you chose for your flowers!!!
