SIP Challenge 25 – Card Maker’s Choice!

I’m not gonna lie, that was a long day yesterday! I was at Scrap-A-Latte from 10:00am until 4:00pm, I even got to chat with Mr. Trent for a bit, and the I ran home to get all of the stuff together for last night’s The Ton Class at The Ink Pad! I took the 5:15pm train and it was packed, there was an Islander’s game at The Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. The train got into Penn Station late but I decided that I would walk down to The Ink Pad, I need the exercise! LOL! I made it from 34th to 13th in 15 minutes! My long legs come in handy sometimes! Class was great and I think that everyone had fun! I have to say that teaching a card class has to be one of my favorite things to do! At one point I looked out the window and there was my friend Kim! She went next door and had some Subway and came back when class was wrapping up. We chatted for a bit while Abby and I cleaned up and then I decided that I would walk back to Penn. I said goodbye to Kim and when I got back to the station it was packed, the game was over, YAY! The train was packed again on the way home but I managed to get a seat by myself, there was some sort of delay at Jamaica so by the time I got home it was 11:30. A long day but a fun one!

Tuesday and it’s time once again for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week it’s Card Maker’s Choice…

SIP Any Challenge 25 800

A nice easy one, especially welcome during the busy holiday season! I made a nice quick Christmas card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of one of my all time favorite stacks from Stampin’ Up!, Adventure Bound. I used the Simon Says Stamp Decorative Ornaments Photopolymer Stamp Set to heat emboss one of the ornaments in Recollections Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. The hanger is heat embossed in Ranger Gold Embossing Powder and they are both cut out with the Coordinating Holiday Ornaments Dies. I adhered it to the card with SNAIL and tied a piece of Lawn Fawn Silver Sparkle Lawn Trimmings Cord in a bow and adhered it to the ornament with a Bling Glue Dot. The Merry Christmas is actually a package decoration that I picked up from the Target Dollar Spot and covered it in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with some more Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. Some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium Holds it to the card. I really do love that Designer Series Paper and the way the Merry Christmas looks all sparkly! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Take a minute to go over to the blog and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you so much for sharing a little bit of your day with me! Have a totally awesome Tuesday! šŸ™‚
