We had a rainy Thursday here on Long Island. However, it’s always a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I got in my Crystal Katana Tools! Wow, are they amazing! Taylor and Kiera stopped by for a visit, they brought some Blaze Pizza with them. My Sister-In-Law came by with Tristan so that I could help her make some Thank You cards. We made quick work of them and I got to spend some time chatting with her. She is such a good mom and a nice person. Renee left early to go and babysit her grandson. After work I went straight over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Thankfully the rain stopped so Heather, Stephanie and I sat outside. I really do enjoy my time with them, so much fun! Today I have some more MISTI’s coming to the store and a little re-stock of Concord & 9th!
It’s an extra fun Friday this week because we have a new Fab Friday sketch challenge…
This was one of those where as soon as I looked at the sketch the card popped into my head! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of paper from the DCWV Maps, Text and Ledges 8×8 Pad to the upper half of the card. Across the lower half of that is a piece of Washi Tape from Eyelet Outlet, I adhered it to some more Solar White 110lb for a little more depth. My piece of notebook paper is created using the Hero Arts Kelly’s To Do List Stamp & Cut. I used the die to cut out a piece of Black 110lb and then heat embossed the lines onto it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The rest of the images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set, except for the smiley face, he’s from the My Monthly Hero Kit for May. I heat embossed all of the images onto Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Sahara Sand. The Envelopes are cut out with my Scissors, the heart is punched out with a 3/4″ Circle Punch and the smiley with a 1/2″ Circle Punch. I adhered the greeting across the notebook paper and put a teal clothespin that I got from the Target Dollar Spot on the side. The notebook paper is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner and the all but one envelope is adhered with 3D Foam Squares. I added a little Cranberry Stickles to the hearts on the envelopes and the card is finished. I love the mix of neutrals with the pops of teal and red and the greeting is still one of my favorites! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery!

Love it! The pops of color on the neutral background – lovely.
Thank you very much Charlotte! Hope you had a great day! 🙂
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!!! All the little envelopes with the hearts…. The happy face… the grid background…
I had so much fun putting all of the elements together for this one! So happy that you enjoyed it! 🙂
Cute, cute, cute Justin. I love the little teeny tiny envelopes with the hearts. A good take on a sketch that kind of threw me as to what to do with it. AND I do love the acts of kindness stamp. Perfect!
It’s going to be a bit cooler here the next 3 days and then we are supposed to have rain for Labor Day. I’m hoping the cooler weather will stick around and give me the bit of a kick I need to stop thinking about fall decorating and actually doing it! LOL In addition I need to finish cutting fabric for the Log Cabin quilt I’m doing for my nephew and get some Halloween cards started for the kiddies. You have yourself a Fabulous Friday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂
Thanks so much Grace! I really did enjoy putting this one together! The Acts of Kindness Set is great!
It’s cooling down here too and I think that we are to have the same here. I wanted to go into the city on Monday, but not if it’s going to rain. I hope that you get you decorations put up and all of your other tasks accomplished! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂
Such a creative card–just love this!!!
Thanks Teresa! 🙂
Oh for sure I’m going to “steal”, oh sorry, I’m going to “CASE” this idea. Ha ha! Seriously, I know you know that’s the best compliment. I really like it. Perfect card to send for no special reason other than to brighten a person’s day.
LOL! Thank you Carol! Yes, it is the best compliment for sure! So happy you like the card! 🙂
What a great card, Justin. I love all the elements – of which there are so many details you thought of. Love the washi tape and grid background with the pops of color. So, so cute. Hope your Friday is going well. I’m hoping Hermine will go out to sea with only a few inches of much-needed rain, if that, for you and us.
Yay! Thanks HJ! I really did enjoy making this one! My Friday was great and I hope that the same is true for you! I’m hoping that you are right about the storm too! 🙂
