Freshly Made Sketches 188 & Pals Paper Arts 253

Well, my trend of sleeping in on Saturdays continues! Not that 7:30 is late but it is for me! Yesterday was another nice day, warm, a little humid but the sun felt nice! My friend Danielle stopped by after work to pick up two birthday cards. I am being good and using ones that I already have in my stash! I Skyped with Andrea for a while and we crafted together. I made my two cards for today and she worked on some swaps. Taylor stopped by and watched some Netflix, she is a little addicted to it! I spent a little time watching TV and then called it a day. Today I’m not sure what I’m doing, which sometimes is nice!

So of the two cards that I have for you today my first one is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 188

Thanks to Jen B. for choosing my card for last week’s challenge! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Early Espresso for the frame and also a piece of Window Sheet. Thin strips of foam tape around the frame adheres it to the card. Some American Crafts Gold Glitter Paper is backed with some Stick-it and cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Die and then adhered to the window. My flowers are created with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tiny Tattered Florals Thinlits from Cherry Cobbler and the leaves from Old Olive. They are adhered to the window frame with Glue Dots. I was going to make it a shaker card but I really like the way the hello just seems to float above the card with nothing behind it!

The second card I made is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 253

A neat sketch and I’m loving that funky edge! The card base on this one is also Neenah Solar White 110lb. The background is a piece of paper from the NEW Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack and I just used a ruler to draw the angled edge and cut it with my Paper Snips. My panel in the middle is a piece of Whisper White that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Flag Card Die. The greeting is from the May Paper Pumpkin Kit and is stamped in Island Indigo. I adhered the card to the base with SNAIL and Fun Foam. The flag at the top is also cut out with the same die from a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper. I doubled up the Fun Foam to adhere it and give it a little more dimension. A scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins adhered with Crystal Effects gives the card some sparkle. I love the simplicity and that funky edge!

PPA 253-WM

So there you have your double dose of my creativity for your Saturday! I hope that you like both the Freshly Made Sketches and Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s challenges! I really do appreciate you taking the time to come by and visit with me, you always make my day! Now go and have yourselves an amazing Saturday! :-)

Fab Friday 65

Oh yes peeps it’s Friday! A nice short week, loved it! Yesterday it was rather humid here but sunny. We had a little patch of rain last night but only for a few minutes. When I got home from work little Daniel was at my parents! Love to see that little man. We went for a little walk and he shared some of my red velvet whoopie pie. He really liked it! He is like a little bird with his mouth open when he wants a taste of what you have! So cute. I come home after and Skyped with Andrea for a little bit and then made a few cards. A nice quiet evening, so nice to have them once in a while!

This Friday it’s time for another Fab Friday challenge and this week we have a color one for you…

Fab Fri 65 5-29-2015

I just got my Simon Says Stamp Card kit in the mail yesterday and wanted to play with some of the stamps and die that is included! The card base for today is the usual and it’s covered in a piece of Marina Mist. My panel is a piece of Whisper White and across the middle is some Beach House Washi Tape. I adhered the panel to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. The sun and greeting are from the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Smile Photopolymer Stamp Set, the sun is stamped in Hello Honey and Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut it out with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card with Foam Tape. The greeting is stamped in Night of Navy. I used the Simon Says Stamp Smile Circle Die to cut out a piece of Night of Navy and adhered it to the card with Ranger Matte Multi-Meduim. A strip of Night of Navy that I flagged the right of side goes across the middle and is adhered to the card with more Foam Tape. A generous dose of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen finishes the card. I love the simplicity and happy feel of the card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday Color challenge!

Mojo 399

Another nice day here! They said that we might get some thunderstorms but they stayed to the north of us. When I got home from work I was Skyping with Andrea and she was showing me the storm clouds and a tornado to the north of her! There were some crazy things going in Colorado! I was part of a text conversation during the day that involved Brian getting his tongue pierced so I headed over to meet Heather at his house and we went to see my friend Mark at his Tattoo shop. I spoke with Mark about my next tattoo that I wanted to get while Brian got his tongue pierced. He didn’t even flinch, however my knees got a little weak at the sight of it! After we went to 7-Eleven to get him a Slurpee to help with the swelling. We got back to his house and I dropped him off and I headed over to Heather’s to meet up with Stephanie for some cocktails and conversation! I had my Whiskey Smash and all was right in the world again! I also got some fun news! Michael will be coming back to NY soon! I’ll keep you posted and let you know when he arrives! :-)

Thankfully I made my card Tuesday night, 10:00pm is a little late to start making a card! That card is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

Mojo399

I decided that I wanted something fun and colorful so I pulled out some bright Designer Series Paper and a fun Stamp Set! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb and the front is covered in a piece of Pumpkin Pie. The background and strip across the middle are pieces of paper from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper Pack. I cut a banner from a piece of Rich Razzleberry and adhered it to the card under the striped piece. A piece of Tempting Turquoise is flagged on both ends and adhered on too of that. My greeting and crayon are from the Lawn Fawn You Color My World Photopolymer Stamp Set. The greeting is stamped in Hero Arts Butter to Orange Ombre Ink and cut out with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Circles. The crayon is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Daffodil Delight and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Fun Foam is adhered to the back of the circle and then it’s adhered to the card. The crayon is adhered to the circle with SNAIL. A scattering of Doodlebug Sequins are adhered to the card with Crystal Effects for a little sparkle. I do love the bright colors and fun stamp set! I hope that you like my card fort this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge! Thank you so much for visiting with me today and I wish you a very nice Thursday! :-)

Paper Craft Crew 146

Wednesday already! I like having Monday’s off! LOL! Today was another nice day, lots of sun and a little breeze. My day was pretty good, work wasn’t terrible, I got to drive home with the top down, my favorite way to end the work day! I came home and had some dinner and then retreated to the Stampin’ Galley to make a card. I ran out to Target quick to get a few things, I love that it’s open until midnight! Not a bad day at all!

Today I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew big for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS146 DT Sketch 5-27-2015

I wanted to use some new goodies and do a little watercoloring, it’s been a while since I have done that! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb. I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp on a piece of Whisper White with Sahara Sand Ink. Some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine is spattered on the panel and it’s adhered to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. I heat embossed the flower from the NEW You’ve Got This Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder twice. The watercoloring is done with So Saffron and Old Olive Ink and a wet brush. I cut out one with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Dies and the flower with my Paper Snips. Some Foam Tape adheres the flower to the circle and more SNAIL and Fun Foam adhere the circle to the card. A few butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. I colored the back of the with a Copic Y35 Marker and the used Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere them to the circle. My greeting is a piece of So Saffron and Neenah Solar White 80lb cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Die. I adhered the two die cuts together with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium and then adhere it to the card with Foam Tape. I love the soft look of the watercolored flower and cool gold butterflies against the Hardwood Background! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge! Don’t forget to visit the blog and see the rest of the Design Team’s projects! Thanks so much for visiting me today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! :-)

SUO Challenges 123

How was your Memorial Day? Mine was great! I slept in a little, got up and did my post stuff. Taylor came over and we had homemade waffles, I got waffle maker yesterday and some mix. I think the next time I will make the batter from scratch. We then ran up to IKEA again and I got a little table and two chairs for outside. Taylor and I used it for dinner to break it in! After that I came inside and made a few cards and then watched a little TV. A very nice day indeed. I also got to speak to Mr. Trent for a bit!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Sweet Treats challenge. I decided that a birthday card would be a good way to go, I always need those! The card base is Whisper White Card Stock. My strip of paper is a piece of the NEW Envelope Paper. I punched a tag from Whisper White with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. My greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set and is stamped in the NEW Delightful Dijon. It’s adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stamps for the ice cream cone are from the NEW Sprinkles of Life Photopolymer Stamp Set and are punched out with the NEW Tree Builder Punch. The ice cream is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on the NEW Mint Macaroon and the cone is heat embossed in Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder on the NEW Delightful Dijon. The cone is adhered to the tag with SNAIL and the ice cream with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine is tied through the top and some “Vintage” Frosted Sequins are adhered to the ice cream for a little sparkle! A fun simple card using some new products from the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Sweet Treats challenge!

Paper Players 246

Oh what a happy Monday it is indeed! A great big thank you to all of the men and women that serve our country and make it great! And also for getting me the day off for work! LOL! I had a nice relaxing Sunday! Breakfast with the girls was fun! We had a nice chat and got all caught up! We are also not going to wait so long until the next time we do that! When I got home from breakfast I rearranged the room next to the kitchen in my apartment and it’s so much bigger now! I like playing Tetris with furniture! The rest of the day was spent crafting, doing laundry and some doing nothing too! When Taylor got home from work we ran to IKEA so I could get a rug for the new open area in the cleaned out space! Today I’m going to be crafty and get ahead for the week! :-)

Today’s card is for this week’s Paper Players challenge from Anne Marie…

Paper Players #246

I stepped a little out of my color zone today! The inspiration is the Washi Tape and the colors in it. My card base is the usual and the entire card front is covered in a piece of Real Red. Another piece of Whisper White has some Washi Tape with a map on it that I got from Michaels. Guess what is on the map… London!! How weird is that?! Anyway, I adhered the strip of Washi to the panel and then on the top and bottom are pieces of Lost Lagoon. I heat embossed the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Flowers on My Mind Photopolymer Stamp Set with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some Fun Foam is adhered to the back and then the panel to the card. My tag is cut from Basic Black using the Tim Holtz Tags Collection Framelits. I adhered some more Washi to another piece of Whisper White and used the Simon Says Stamp Feathers Dies to cut three out. They are adhered to the tag and some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is wrapped around the bottom. Another piece of Fun Foam and adhesive holds it to the card. To finish it off I adhered three Recollections Enamel Dots to the Washi across the center. I’m really liking the colors that I pulled from the Washi, I think that they are different and pretty neat! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge! Thanks for taking some time out from your Memorial Day festivities to stop by and see me! Have a safe and fun day! :-)

Can You Case It? 71

It was chilly here again yesterday but sunny! It did warm up a bit later in the day, enough to take a ride to Scrap-A-Latte with the top down! In the morning I crafted for a bit and then Taylor came by in the afternoon after she got out of work, that’s when we went over to see Renee. We also had some Blaze Pizza for Lunch. That has become one of my favorite places to get pizza! You can make your own with like 40 different toppings and it $7.95 per pie, and it’s delicious! We came home and puttered around the house before running out to Michaels to pick up some necessities! LOL! The rest of night was spent crafting and chatting. A nice way to spend a Saturday! This morning I’m out to breakfast with Sam and Kim, it’s been too long and we need to catch up!

It’s Sunday and that means that it’s time for another Can You Case It challenge, This week we are bidding a fond farewell to the soon to be Vintage 2013-2015 In-Colors…

CYCI #71

 

Yes, I was the one who threw in the gold! LOL! I really am going to miss Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Pistachio Pudding. The panel has a piece of PinkFresh Studio Mint to Peach Ombre Airmail Washi Tape just for Michael! 😛 The greeting and cake are from the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set, I promise that I will stop using it soon! LOL! I stamped the greeting in Crisp Cantaloupe and quickly coated it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set it. If you do it fast enough it will stick! The neat little card is the Reverse Confetti Mini Circle Garland Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts die cut from some Gold Foil Sheet. I adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. My cake is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Crisp Cantaloupe and cut out with my Paper Snips. The panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I really am very obsessed with that Stamp Set, I just love it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Can You Case It color challenge! Head on over to the blog and see what the rest of the design team have made and enter your project in the gallery! I thank you for coming by today and I wish you a creatively amazing Sunday! :-)

Perfect Borrowed Birthday

And it’s the start of the three day weekend! I had a nice Friday, work was good, I snuck out at 2:00! I came home and worked on my card for today and Skyped with Andrea. Sandy stopped by to pick up something that she left at my house on Thursday night and she also brought over her goodies that she got in the mail and now I have a few more things that I want! We also ran to Michaels quickly! Anthony and Bill came to get me at 7:00 and we went to Smash Burger for dinner. I had sweet potato fries, onion straws and fried pickles along with my burger! I did share everything except the sweet potato fries, they are delicious because they are so nice and crispy! From there we stopped at Starbucks and I had a mini vanilla bean Frappucino. We met up with Marissa and her friend Gina at the bar and had a fun time. I came home and went straight to bed! LOL! Today I’m planning on stopping by Scrap-A-Latte for a bit and then crafting too! A nice relaxing start to the weekend!

I promised that I would get all caught up on my cards from the classes at Scrap-A-Latte so here are the ones from last month’s class. We featured Reverse Confetti and I had loads of fun making the cards!

RC Fragments-JK-WM

RC Donuts-JK-WM

RC Flower Shaker-JK-WM

RC Bees-JK-WM

Aren’t they fun?!?! I love the donuts and the cool fragmented background with the sequin paper too!

Today I have a birthday card for you! Have you ever gotten a little obsessed with a stamp set or a particular layout?! I am a little obsessed with a particular stamp set and layout lately and I love to see how many different ways that I can use both! The base of today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb. Down the left side is a piece of the Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape. The panel is a piece of paper from the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper Pack, it’s adhered to a piece of Fun Foam and then to the card. The wreath is from the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive and cut out with another one of the fantastic dies from DiesByDave! How happy was I when I saw this one?! I punched out some flowers with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack from Blackberry Bliss and adhered them to the wreath with Bling Glue Dots. A few pearls are adhered to the centers with Crystal Effects. I cut out some Basic Black and Neenah Solar White 80lb with the Simon Says Stamp Wishing Die. They are adhered together and then to card. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing Photopolymer Stamp Set, I heat embossed it on Basic Black with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and adhered it to the card with Foam Tape. Three sequins adhered to the card with more Crystal Effects compete the card! I really am obsessed with the Your Perfect Day Set and the layout, but I have used it for quite a few different style cards! I really hope that you enjoy today’s card and the cards from the Reverse Confetti class at Scrap-A-Latte! Thank you so much for coming by today! Have an super Saturday my friends! :-)

Pals Paper Arts 252

Ahh… the sweetness of Friday is upon us! This was a long week, lots going on and I am thinking the weekend will be a busy one too! I got a lot accomplished at work and the weather was cool and overcast again but they say that most of the weekend will be nice. I ran to Scrap-A-Latte straight from work to talk about next month’s stamp sets with Renee. We have narrowed it down to three companies! LOL! Not much progress! I came home and stopped my the Parent’s to have some dinner and then to my house to work on my card for today. I Skyped with Andrea for a bit and then my crafty friend Sandy stopped by! We talked about the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog and then did a show and tell of the other goodies that we have recently acquired. Always great to see Sandy! Tonight I’m out for some dinner with Anthony and Bill and then we are going to meet up with Marissa and one of her friends and go to the bar for al little while. Should be a very good way to start the weekend! What are your plans for the upcoming holiday?!

My craftiness last night yielded my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 252

I wanted to keep the card simple and use some new goodies that I recently acquired! The base is Whisper White and the front is covered in a piece of Basic Black. My background is a piece of the NEW Mint Macaroon Card Stock that I embossed with the “Vintage” Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, still one of my favorites! I recently got some new dies from DiesByDave on Etsy that coordinate with the By The Tide Stamp Set. His dies are great and if you haven’t been to his shop in a while you need to pay him a visit, he has added some new dies! I heat embossed the shells in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on the NEW Tip Top Taupe and then used the dies to perfectly cut them out. A little Foam Tape adheres them to the background. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I adhered it to the shells with a little Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. Like I said a very simple but elegant card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! I thank you for your visit and wish you all an absolutely amazing Friday! :-)

Freshly Made Sketches 187

Another somewhat cool but sunny day here on Long Island. The workday wasn’t too bad yesterday, I managed to get a bunch of stuff done. When I got to my parent’s little Daniel was there in all of his smiling glory! We had dinner and then the two of us went outside and played ball on the front porch with Winston. He loves when Winnie tries to get the ball and just laughs and laughs! So cute! I came home for a bit and made my card for today while I was on Skype with Andrea. After I finished my card I headed over to Heather’s for a drink, she makes the best Whiskey Smash I have ever had and now it’s my drink of choice! I also got to play with the new kitten Pasha, she is just way too cute and lovey as you can see from the picture!

Pasha

Just siting there on my knee. It was actually funny because she just sort of appeared there put of nowhere. We snuggled for a bit and then she bounded of my lap to go and play with her mouse! Just too cute!

My little card that I made for today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 187

I stayed really true to the sketch, right down to the butterfly! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb cut to 3 1/2″ wide. I cut some vellum with the Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves Craft Die. They are tucked behind a piece of Gold Foil Sheet that is adhered to the card with SNAIL. My label is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Frames Craft Dies from a piece of the NEW Tip Top Taupe and Basic Black. The greeting is from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s adhered to the card with SNAIL. My butterfly is cut from Basic Black with the Simon Says Stamp Devonshire Butterfly Die. A tiny piece of Foam Tape adheres it to the card. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins adhered here and there finish the card. I love the look of the Tip Top Taupe with the Basic Black and Gold, nice and rich and elegant! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you very much for stopping by today! Have a terrific Thursday :-)
