Two cards from me PCC 195 & PCC 196

Good morning

A quick post from me for two entries into The Paper Craft Crew challenges.

Firstly I used this sketch

to make this card for Fathers Day on the 19th of June for my Father in Law

Unfortunately I was too late to link it up but I still thought I'd blog it :0)

Then I took this sketch here

and created this gatefold card


In each circumstance I used the required three Stampin' Up elements: stamp sets, punches, dies etc.

In the case of the last one, the bee cardstock was from some packaging from some Marks and Spencer wrapping on a beautiful bouquet I received for my Birthday in March.. does anyone else do that? 

Anyway.. that's it for now

Do pop back soon!



  1. Love your cards and that great sketch.

  2. lovely cards, great takes on the sketches :-)

  3. Too bad your card for sketch #195 was too late, Elaine - it's lovely! But you made it in time for Sketch #196, and again - lovely card! I love that it's a gatefold card, and the DSP with the butterfly & bee as accents is perfect. Thanks for joining our challenge at the Paper Craft Crew. ~Deborah

  4. Great cards!!! I'm so glad that you share both! The bee cardstock is beautiful! Very clever! Thank you for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew this week!

  5. Great idea to make this sketch into a gate fold, Elaine. It works beautifully. Love the way you've upcycled the Marks and Spencer's wrapping. What a great idea and so effective. Thanks so much for joining our Paper Craft Crew Challenge this week.

  6. Your cards rock, need I say more? I love them both and you nailed the challenges! Thank you so very much for participating in the Paper Craft Crew Challenge. Your support is so greatly appreciated and we look forward to your submission next week too!

  7. I love both of your cards! They rock and you totally rocked both sketches. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew. Your support is appreciated and we hope to see you play along in our next challenge. ~Pam, DT
