Hello! It turned out to be a very nice day here yesterday after a brief shower in the morning. I headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to go and see Renee and finish my cards for the March Lawn Fawn class. We chatted and then had some dinner before I headed home. When I got back to the house I let Winston out and I was standing there reading something on my iPhone when I was startled to see a raccoon the size of a small bear cub walk by me not four feet away! Thankfully I had already let Winston in! YIKES! I guess as long as neither one of us bothers the other one all is good! LOL! This morning I’m off to spend the day at Scrap-A-Latte so Renee can have a little time off. Come by and say hi if you are in the area!
Tuesday… yup it’s Tuesday! Time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! We are also welcoming Marisa Gunn as a Guest Designer for the month of March! Thanks for joining us Marisa! This week I came up with a fun Wood, Cork, Felt Challenge…
All you have to do is use one of these on your project! I of course had to use all three! LOL! The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Pink Pirouette covering the front. I adhered a panel of Adhesive Cork Sheet on top of that. My tag is a wooden one that I picked up at Michaels along with the butterfly. The flowers and leaves are cut out from some pink and light green felt, also from Michaels, with the Essential by Ellen Bold Blooms Stand Alone Dies. I adhered them to the wooden tag with Multi-Matte Medium along with the butterfly. A length of Papertrey Ink Natural Twine is tied thought the top and then the tag is adhered to the card with E-Z- Runner. My greeting is from the Mama Elephant Labeled Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Simon Says Stamp Jellybean Ink on a piece of Ivory 100lb and also adhered with E-Z Runner. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets with more Multi-Matte Medium to give the card just a little more texture! I really do enjoy using some natural elements on a card, makes for a nice change from paper alone! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

That tag is the perfect bkgrd for the flowers and butterfly, and those clear droplets set it off perfectly! Great job! TFS.
Thanks so much Susan! Have a wonderful day! 🙂
Wow, Justin, you managed all three elements in this card and it looks so beautiful and elegant! I do love the combination you chose and those roses are just awesome! Thanks for sharing. xo Crystal
Thank you Crystal! I do love all of the elements on the card and it really is fun to use other things besides paper! Have a wonderful week! XO 🙂
Good Morning Justin:
I really do love those clear droplets, they look so real. Quite a combo of textures on today’s card and they all fall in nicely together. I haven’t tried putting felt through my Sizzix. Do you need to put stabilizer behind it before cutting?
So, you get to spend an entire day at Scrap a Latte eh? Boy, to me that would be a perfect day. All those supplies to look at, to touch, to drool over! Renee gets some time off and you get to play all day – I love it! Not much going on here. I’m half way through making some masculine cards and have come to a screeching stop. My creative ideas have run into a brick wall. Think I’ll just put it all away until another day when I can take a fresh look at it and perhaps get the creativity flowing again. Boy, I just hate when this happens. Meanwhile my friend, you have yourself a Terrific Tuesday. Love & Hugs, XXOO 🙂
Yes, the clear droplets are really cool! I used a metal swim in my big shot when I cut out the felt and didn’t have any trouble. Glad that you enjoyed the card!
I was at Scrap-A-Latte all day and I had fun, even got to make my dad a card! Renee needs to have a day off, 7 days a week is too much for anyone! Sorry that you lost your mojo! It happens to me all the time! Sometimes cards sit on my desk for a week before they get finished! I did have a great day and hope that you did too! Love and hugs back at ya! XOXO 🙂
FABULOUS! Amazing combo of textures, colors and elements Justin. Ok, thought you lived in New York – a raccoon?
Thank you Dana! Yup, we have raccoons out here on the Island! He was huge! 🙂
I give, this is gorgeous! How do you think pf these creative concepts. I love the texture of this.
I’m jealous, winter is back, ice snow and flippin cold. Luckily its March so its almost over. Take care
Thanks so much Linda! I love all of the textures too! When I came up with the challenge I knew that I had to use all three! LOL!
We are supposed to get snow later in the week now too! I’m over it and was so enjoying the nice weather we have been having! Have a good day! 🙂
Hey Justin, are raccoons scary? Do they attack people? We don’t have raccoons here, we have possums instead, I don’t think they bite… Today’s card is beautiful, I thought the flowers looked like felt, and when I read your description I saw that they ARE felt (that explains that – Duh). We farewelled my Dad today, a very sad but beautiful day, surrounded by tonnes of family and friends and people I didn’t know… Couldn’t have asked for a nicer day under the circumstances 🙂 Hugs to you from South Australia xoxo
Raccoons aren’t necessarily scary but yes, they have been known to attack people. We have possums too and they are vicious here! I am going to use felt on my cards more often, I love the texture that it gives!
I’m happy that you had a nice day to say goodbye to your dad and that you were surrounded by so many people. He’ll always be with you, right there in the back of your mind. Big hugs to you from all of here in NY! XOXO 🙂
