I had a busy day yesterday! I had to run out to Riverhead to get some documents, it’s an hour from me and thankfully Sue came along for the ride! We were in and out so that was good. The weather was absolutely gorgeous here too! Nice bright sun and temps in the 70’s! We stopped and looked at few things at a store and then had some Sonic for lunch! When we got back to my house Sue took a bunch of stuff home to work on for me and then I went over to see my parents and little Daniel. He has a cold that he got from his cousin! Those little ones do like to pass around the germs don’t they?! I stopped back at my house and then headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to watch the store for Renee while she went and spent some time with her grandkids! I got to FaceTime with Andrea for a bit and I worked on some stuff while I was there. Today I’m going to meet Bill for lunch and then get a bunch more stuff done. Hopefully it will be nice again! I did enjoy my time in the convertible yesterday!
For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here after seeing Megan’s fabulous projects, welcome! This month we have a May flowers theme! More flowers! LOL! I have been on a flower kick lately, thankfully I have some new ones for you today!
First up is a card that uses some Altenew goodies! The card base is Neenah Solar White cut to 4″ wide with the front covered with a piece of Black 110lb. My flowers are from the Altenew Painted Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Hero Arts Bubblegum and Raspberry Jam Ink for the flowers and Simon Says Stamp Jellybean and Green Apple Ink for the leaves. The outlines of all of them are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and arranged them on my card. Some Press ‘n Seal is used to pick them up. I added some Foam Tape and Tombo Mono Adhesive to the back and then pressed them to my card and peeled off the Press ‘n Seal. The little black and white leaves are tucked in and adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. You can see how nice and easy it is here…
I stamped the butterfly from the Altenew Painted Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set in Bubblegum and Raspberry Jam and used the Coordinating Dies to cut him out too. Some more Foam Tape holds him in place. My greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I love the loose artsy feel of the flowers and butterfly and I think they really pop against the black!
Next up is a fun tag! I painted a Wooden Tag with some Black Acrylic Paint while it dried I heat embossed a Wood Rose with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. My greeting is heat embossed in more Gold and is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set. I adhered the rose to the tag with Multi-Matte Medium and then tied a piece of American Crafts Pink Twine though the top! I think the tag would make a very nice package decoration and then whoever you give it to can keep it and use as for a little home decor!

Justin! Isn’t that Press N Seal the coolest!?! I made cards for my daughter for every day the week of her wedding. I used the Press N Seal on this one:
I’m telling you, I never would have had the patience to glue all of those down individually!
Yes, I love it Sharon! I like that you can arrange everything and then it stays in place when you add the adhesive! Thank you! And your card is cool! 🙂
Justin, that Press N Seal idea is such a good one! My daughter got married in April and I made her a card for every day that week. This was one I used the Press N Seal on, because you’d go insane if you didn’t!
Love your cards!
P.S. I left a reply earlier but it never showed up so you may have two! Oh well!
The card is beautiful and I am totally in LOVE with that tag. So elegant!
Thank you so much! I love to use wood, especially heat embossed! 🙂
What a stunning card! I love the black bacground. I think Painted Flowers is one of my favorite stamp sets ever. Don’t have the butterflies yet…
Thank you Sandy!! Yes, Painted Flowers is great and so are the butterflies! We’ll have to get you that one! 🙂
Gorgeous card and Tag Justin! I had heard about the Press-n-seal but hadn’t tried it. I think maybe I should give it a whirl! 🙂
Thank you Tina! Love Press ‘n Seal!! 🙂
WOW! that is elegant. LOL I bought the Press and Seal, my family took it and it is now being used in the kitchen. I need to snag it back. Take care
Thanks so much Linda! How dare they use your craft supplies in the kitchen! LOL! 🙂
Great job Jason. Love all your ideas.
Thank you Deb! 🙂
your cards are always breath taking and love the tag as well
Thank you very much Dedra! 🙂
Wow Justin these are beautiful, but the tag is my favourite! It’s very classy. I hope Daniel feels better, poor thing! I’m glad your weather is nice, ours isn’t too bad, but it’s a bit chilly sitting inside the office! Can’t complain, it’s quite a bit warmer than usual for this time of year 🙂 Hope you have a great day Justin xx
Thanks Kelly! I love to heat emboss wood! Daniel is a little trooper, aside from his little runny nose you wouldn’t know he was sick! I’m so happy to have top down weather back!! Hope that you are having a great week my friend! 🙂
