It’s another beautiful day in Manhattan! Nice and sunny and not too hot. Yesterday I spent the day at The Ink Pad with Michael and Barbara. Towards the end of the day Kathy from The Daily Marker stopped in. She has another coloring challenge coming up in October and I’m going to do my best to participate in it! You can check out her blog HERE! After work Michael and I walked over to Trader Joe’s to pick up some stuff so he could make dinner. We got back to the apartment and had spinach tortellini with pesto and garlic bread with melted mozzarella cheese. It was yummy! Today we are going to head downtown and do a little more wandering! Her are some more pictures from our adventure the other evening.
The new tower looks cool during the day but I think it’s even neater at night! Michael has a post up today with some more pictures so be sure and go over to his BLOG and check them out!
The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
This card started off with the need to use a bunch of die cuts! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My panel is a piece of Tip Top Taupe and is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I cut two circles out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Die from Pool Party. The larger one is stamped with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp in Pool Party. I tucked the Simon Says Stamp Calliope Flourish Die cut from Gold Glimmer Paper behind the circle that is adhered with SNAIL to the card. My branch is cut from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Memory Box Branching Out Die and is adhered to the circle with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. The butterfly is cut from Mint Macaroon and Vellum using the Simon Says Stamp Devonshire and Paulina Dies and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I adhered the other circle to the card with SNAIL. The hello is cut from Solar White 110lb using the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Die. I brushed some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen over it for some added interest. Finally, some Hazel & Ruby The Makery Shine & Sparkle and Green with Envy Sequins complete the card. I love all of the die cuts and the colors are great together! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thank you for stopping by and sharing in my weekend! I always appreciate your visits and wish you a fun Sunday! 🙂
