How was Monday? I had a nice one! I crafted in the morning for a bit with Andrea over FaceTime and then I ran over to see my friend Paul for a chat before heading over to Heather’s for some lunch. I had some really good pizza with hot peppers and a glass of wine. After that I came home and finished up some more crafty things before heading out to run a few errands with Heather. We ran to IKEA, Macy’s, TJ Maxx, BJ’s and Michaels! After she dropped me off I had a little dinner and then headed back over to Heather’s to watch a little TV before coming home and finishing up my evening. This morning I’m off to Manhattan for two days at The Ink Pad with Barbara! I’ll be staying with my friend Kim tonight! Love my Kimmie!
Before I get to today’s post a bunch of you have asked for the link to my friend Sue’s Etsy store so here it is!
It’s Tuesday and time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge…
Some nice soft colors from Andrea! I started off with a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Blushing Bride that I stamped with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Background with Blushing Bride Ink. Next up is a piece of Sahara Sand that I adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner at a slight angle. My lovely flowers are from the Clearly Besotted Sketched Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush using my MISTI and the leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive. After cutting them out with the Coordinating Dies and arranging them on a piece of Solar White 80lb that I used the Clearly Besotted Notebook Edge Die along the left side of I used some Press ‘n Seal to pick them up. To the back I added some Foam Tape and E-Z Runner and then pressed them into place. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Onyx Black. After adhering the panel to the card I added some Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink, Pink Peony and Sparkling Clear Sequins to give it some shine! See, that sequin organizer is really handy as my sequins are always ready to be added to a card! I do love those flowers, such nice detail and shading with only two stamps! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge Color Challenge!
