SIP Challenge 50 – A Sketch!

So it was supposed to rain all day yesterday! I have to say that I love it when the weather-peeps are wrong! It actually turned out to be a nice day! I headed into Manhattan on the 11:11 train and walked down to The Ink Pad to see Anna. We had a nice visit and talked about store stuff. From there I went over to Barnes & Noble, I haven’t been in a bookstore in way too long! I need to start reading again too! I used to read all the time! I was on the hunt for a specific magazine and they had it! The current issue of Simply Cards from the UK has a free Altenew Stamp and Die set included! I picked up a copy for me and one for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I met up with Barbara by the magazines and I had a veggie pizza from the cafe which was pretty good! We chatted and then wandered around. She took me to Flying Tiger and I got some fun stuff there! We then went over to Madison Square Park and Barbara had Shake Shack. I got a Vanilla frozen custard, yum! Her are a few pictures from my little adventure…

Today I’ll be back at the store, lots of fun stuff planned! Stop by and see all of the coolΒ stuff that I got in including a lot of the new stuff from Hero!

Now on to today’s post! I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog with the rest of my Design Team for this week’s sketch challenge…

SIP Sketch Challenge 50 800

I had this idea for a shaker card since I first saw the Lawn Fawn So Smooth set! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Down the left side is a piece of paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Petite Paper Pad. I stamped all of the images from the Lawn Fawn So Smooth Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored them in with Copics. The berries and glass are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. For the blender I used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle to cut that and another piece of the patterned paper along with a piece of Soft Sky and Thick Fun Foam. Using my Craft Knife I cut out the “glass” part of the blender and a piece from the Fun Foam. The greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and then I adhered a piece of Acetate to the back of the front panel and then adhered the Fun Foam. Some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and Clear Glass Seed Beads are added and then the back is adhered. The shaker is then adhered to the card base with E-Z Runner and the card is done! I really do love that So Smooth Set and the fruit, beads and sequins really do make it look like a real blender! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over and check out the rest of the Team’s cards on the BLOG and be sure to enter your project in the gallery! Thank you, as always, for taking some time to come by and see what I’ve been up to! Have a super Tuesday my friends! πŸ™‚

  1. Dang Justin! That is the cutest, sweetest card I’ve seen in a while! Every time you make a shaker card I say “I’m going to try making one”. Then off I go on my merry little way stamping only in my comfort zone! Shame on me! Now Justin, you said you would take a ride to my place so when you do, I will make you make me make a shaker card! Boy, that was hard to type. LOL I really do love this blender card. You have yourself a Tremendously Terrific Tuesday my friend. I have almost the exact photos of the flatiron building in Manhattan from one of my trips there. It really is an impressive architectural design. Love and hugs, XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Yay! Thank you so much Grace! You NEED to make a shaker card!! Time to step out of your comfort zone!! LOL! Ok, fair enough! We’ll make one together! I “saw” this card in my head as soon as I saw the set, love the images! I love the Flatiron! It’s such cool building! Have a fun day my friend! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. very cute card, you see “shaker” where most of us see blender! Love it πŸ™‚

  3. hi justin – i checked my barnes & noble for that magazine and nada:-( anyway my question is whether it’s worth having my son pick it up in london for me and bring over for me – would like to know what the altenew stamp is before i have him bother.

    enjoy reading your blog and seeing your cards.

    1. Thank you Teresa! Love that I get to share my little adventures with you! πŸ™‚

  4. Great card. I love a shaker and especially one that looks so tasty! I love the colors in the plaid paper then accented with the strawberries and blender. So very cute! Glad your day was fun. Loved the pics of the Flatiron Building. It reminded me of my grandson making the Legos kit of it. Have a great day.

    1. Thank you HJ! It is a tasty looking shaker! The Lawn Fawn Plaid Paper is great! I had a really good time in the city, I love it! There was a Lego Flatiron?! How did I not know about this?! Hope you enjoyed your day! πŸ™‚

  5. Cute, I saw someone else turn the blender into a shaker! LOVE IT!!!! Gorgeous pictures, I love that building. The best part of any city is their historical architecture. Take care!

    1. I saw that too! Thank you! The Flatiron is my favorite building! I agree! The architecture in Manhattan is awesome! πŸ™‚

  6. Just adorable! Your cards are like a bookstore…I can spend hours looking at them and never grow tired. I’ll take a smoothie, but it’s not my birthday. LOL

    1. Thank you Maggie! You are so sweet! I am very lucky to get to call you my friend! Love you loads! πŸ™‚

  7. Just re-visiting this card and your photos… Doesn’t someone make a sentiment that says ” you make me happier than a bird with a french fry”? LOL!
