SIP Challenge 84 – Tic-Tac-Toe from LeAnne!

SIP Challenge 84 – Tic-Tac-Toe from LeAnne!

Now that was a busy Monday! I got my Lawn Fawn Pre-Order all tallied up and sent off. Renee and I worked on ideas for upcoming fun at the Stores. I got lots accomplished too thanks to Renee, she has the ability to reel me in! LOL! After work I had dinner with my Parent’s and Taylor and did a little laundry. Today, more planning! Oh, and some snow later, grrr! 😀

Today is Tuesday so that means it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I got some new goodies from Sunny Studios and I used one of my personal faves on today’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Moonstone Blue and across the lower half is a piece of Photoplay This Guy 12×12 Paper. I also cut a piece of the This Guy Paper out with the Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts to create a frame. My “rug” is a piece of Authentique 12×12 Paper that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. The images and greeting are from the Sunny Studios That Sucks Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. I stamped the vacuum in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. Inside the frame I adhered a piece of Chinese Red and heat embossed the sentiment in hero Arts White Embossing Powder with the end of the sentiment also heat embossed, in the lower right of the card. The “suck” is die cut from Black and adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. I added some Hemptique Black & White Baker’s Twine for my cord and adhered the vacuum with 3D Foam Squares. A few Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and three Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars complete the card! I really do love the little sad vacuum and the sentiment is great! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from LeAnne! Stop by the BLOG and take a look at all of the cards the rest of the Team has come up with to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery! Thanks for visiting! Have an awesome Tuesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 482

Mojo Monday 482

And to begin our week here we have snow! Not a lot but snow none the less! Oh Winter go away! LOL! I had a very busy day yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I got all of the Lawn Fawn Pre-Orders together, there were a lot so thank you very much! Finished them up last night and will get them off today! I also have a boat load of projects to start or get finished, but it’s mostly crafty things so it’s all good! I got a few things in from Sunny Studios too and they will be up on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Site later on today! 😀

Monday and we have a new Mojo Monday sketch for you…

I kept very true to the sketch and used a bunch of Lawn Fawn goodies! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Battleship Gray and then a piece of Authentique Fabulous 12×12 serves as my background. Next up is another piece of Battleship Gray that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables Lawn Cuts and on top of that is another piece of the Fabulous 12×12 cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts, some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner adheres it to the card. Two squares of Rose Chintz are cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts, they are adhered with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My heart is a piece of Ballerina Pink cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Stackables Lawn Cuts, again adhered with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The greeting is a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card Stock and two more pieces of Battleship Gray cut out with the Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs Lawn Cuts. I adhered them to each other, the top one slightly offset, with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the card with 3D Foam Squares and Multi-Matte Medium. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins and the card is done! Love the pinks with the gray and the nice sparkly greeting! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

Sweet Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday

Sweet Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday

Crop days are always fun at the Store! It was Chevonne’s Birthday so we had cake! My friend Louis came by to show me his new Honda CR-V, so good to see him! I got to discuss This is Us with Linda! My friend Michelle stopped by too, so nice to see her! She picked up a few goodies and I can’t wait to see what she makes with them! After work I came home and went over to my Parent’s and spent some time with them, my Brother, Erika, Daniel, Tristan and Taylor! I even got a little group selfie…

Yes, I look a little bit like a fool, trying to get Tristan to smile! They are such good little kids! After that it was home to do a little organizing! Today is the last day to place your Lawn Fawn Pre-Order with the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! You can click HERE to go to the Collection! Tonight I’ll be getting the order ready! Can’t wait to get all those new goodies into the Store! 😀

For some reason I had a craving for mint chocolate chip ice cream yesterday so I decided that the card version would be a lot less calories! I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the ice cream and cones onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and an extra one for the main image. To stamp them I used Mint Julep, Tide Pool, Soft Brown and Cup O Joe. The single one is cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. My stamped background is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. I cut a piece of 48lb Vellum to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The die cut ice cream and cone is adhered to the Vellum with 3D Foam Squares and then I added more behind it to adhere it to the card. I love the way the Vellum really softens the busy stamped background and highlights the single come and greeting! I hope that you like my card for today! I thank you for coming by and wish you a nice easy Sunday! 🙂

Grateful for You Flourish

Grateful for You Flourish

It’s the weekend! I enjoyed my day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday with Renee. We had Taco Bell for lunch, something we haven’t done in a long time! I guess as far as fast food it is one of the healthier options! After work I stopped by my Parent’s and then came home and waited for my friend Jim to come by. We had Chili’s for dinner, chatted for a long time and then watched a movie. A fun way to end the week! Today there is a one day crop at the store, I’ll get to see some of my ladies! Don’t forget that there are only two more days to place your orders for the Lawn Fawn New Release Pre-Order Sale! You can click HERE for more info! 😀

While I was at the Store yesterday I made another simple card that I have to share with you today! To start I stamped the flowers from the Concord & 9th Flourish Photopolymer Stamp Set In Altenew Forest Glades, Evergreen, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Ink using my Mini MISTI onto a piece of Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then used the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaves Dies to cut out the grateful from the stamped panel and five more times from a piece of Solar White 110lb. The stamped panel is adhered to a card base of more Solar White 110lb and the die cuts are adhered back into the negative space with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive with the stamped one placed on top. All that was left to do was to stamp the rest of the greeting from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Altenew Jet Black and the card is done! I really love that Flourish stamp and the stacked greeting is so neat and subtle! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you for stopping by! Have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 272

Freshly Made Sketches 272

Happy Friday! I had a little private class with two ladies at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday morning. It was so much fun! I also had time to catch up on a lot of things that I had gotten behind on. After work I stopped by my Parent’s house and saw Daniel for a bit and then came home and straightened up quickly. I had the pleasure of hosting Thirsty Thursday last night! It was just Heather and Stephanie and I, which is more than enough! We had a fun time! Today I need to get lots of orders together at the Store and then I’m having dinner with a friend tonight. A nice way to finish out the week! 😀

While I was going through some supplies the other day I came across my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Filmstrip Die and that’s what inspired me to make my card for today! It’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! But before we get to this week’s sketch I want to thank Karren for choosing me as her Perfect Prince for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE! Now for this week’s sketch…

So I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Filmstrip Die from some Black and adhered it to a base of Solar White 110lb Card Stock. In between the two I added a strip of American Crafts Plum Glitter Tape. Next I stamped my flowers and leaves from the Aletnew Vintage Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set using my Mini MISTI in Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet. The leaves are stamped in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and adhered them to the card with Dot Runner Adhesive and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Altenew Sketchy Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Jet Black. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Mix Sequins and the card is done! I love the flowers in the purples and the unexpected filmstrip peeking out from behind them! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks very much for spending some of your Friday with me! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Paper Players 328

Paper Players 328

Hello my peeps! What a nice day I had yesterday in Manhattan! Well, except for the 40 minutes that I spent stuck in between stations on the Subway. Thankfully I had my AirPods and some good music to get me through that! Ella was lovely as always. We had a very good discussion about Politics. From there I headed down to The Ink Pad to see Anna. We had a good time as we always do! When I left the store to go to Penn Station I realized that all I had all day was a Venti Soy Vanilla Latte! Oops! I did have dinner with my Parent’s when I got home and then ran to Target with Heather. A little This is Us and then bed. Renee is off today and I have two peeps coming in for a card class this morning, that will be fun! 😀

But before we get to that I want to thank Nance for choosing me as her Cut Above for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE! Now for this week’s challenge badge…

This may the the cleanest card I have ever made! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the rose and leaves from the Altenew Penned Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. To give the card just a little color I used a Copic to color in the back side of the leaves. The Coordinating dies are used to cut them out and some Multi-Matte Medium adheres them to the card. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Onyx Black in the lower right. It needed some sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins! I do love the softness of the card and all of the whitespace! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players CAS Flowers Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have a tremendous Thursday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 228

Paper Craft Crew 228

Oh, the rain decided to stick around for another day, and I’ll say it agin, better than snow! Renee and I had a productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. She cut out lovely titles on the Cricut and I made some cards and did a lot of paperwork! I had text Andrew in the morning to tell him that I missed him and he came over last night with Pizza! We got all caught up! Isn’t it great when you have friends that you can just pick up where you left off with?! I also fished catching up with This is Us so I can watch yesterday’s episode tonight when I get home! Today, I’m off to Manhattan! Going to see my friend Ella in the morning and then head down to The Ink Pad to visit my friend Anna! I need a city day! 😀

Wednesday and time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I went nice and simple with lots of stamping! I cut a piece of Solar White 80lb to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and heat embossed the circles from the Concord & 9th Love you, Mean It Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder twice. Using my ruler and a pencil I drew two lines down the card to serve as a guide for where I wanted my stamping. All of the images are from the same set and are stamped in Soft Pink, Soft Lilac, Red Royal and Lime Green. I erased the lines and then used the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card. A little Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive adheres it to the card. All that was left to do was to adhere the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock! I love the simplicity and the cascade of flowers, they were so much fun to stamp! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s card and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for coming by and visiting with me! Have a lovely Wednesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

Well, we definitely got that Nor’easter yesterday! Crazy winds and lots of rain last night. There were power lines down and all sorts of other storm related things happening. I was glad to be in the house, binge watching This is Us! Completely addicted to the show, I’m up to episode 9! The earlier part of yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was busy. Renee had her Home Decor Class, lots of people coming in to paint their wood pieces. I managed to get a few things done and ran to the Post Office to mail out some crafty goodness, always a highlight of the day! Today, more projects to do! Love my job! 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

The first thing I did to create my card was to stamp the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Soft Brown and the heart and love from the Concord & 9th Tree Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Crimson Hybrid using my Mini MISTI onto Ivory 110lb, I triple stamped the tree ring and double stamped the heart and love. They are trimmed out with my Scissors and put aside. To my card base of Ivory 110lb I adhered a piece of Carta Bella Beach Day Surf Shop 12×12 Paper. Much the Renee’s delight I inked the edges with Soft Brown using my Mini Ink Blending Tool! (she likes to ink everything!) The paper is then adhered, a little askew, to the base. I used Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the tree ring and heart to the card. I slipped a piece of Chinese Red in between. It needed a little subtle sparkle so I added some Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry and Sand Sequins and the card is finished! We all know how I love a little woodgrain and that’s why I love that Paper and Tree Ring Stamp! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and get inspired by the rest of the Team and add your card to the gallery! Thank you for stopping by! Have a nice Tuesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 481

Mojo Monday 481

We are supposed to be getting a Nor’easter today! Thankfully not snow but lots of rain and high winds. Makes yesterday’s overcast weather seem quite nice! LOL! Renee, Angie and I had a productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. I got some more administrative things finished and made my card for today. It was my Brother’s Birthday yesterday so I left the Store a little early, ran home and finished up a few things before heading out to his house for Dinner. Most of my time was spent playing with Daniel, what better way to spend a Sunday evening?! We had loads of fun, he has quite the extensive array of toys! When I got back to my house I watched Ever After, still one of my favorites. I’m a die hard romantic at heart! Today I have projects and all sorts of other fun things to do! Happy Monday! 😀

The start of a new week and of course a new Mojo Monday sketch…

I pulled out a favorite set of mine that I haven’t used in a long time! The flower and leaves are from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flower in Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Ink and the leaves in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen Crisp Ink using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside while I worked on the rest of the card. My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and for my background I used a piece of Photoplay This Guy 12×12 Paper. The half circle is cut from a piece of 48lb Vellum with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. Across the lower part of the card is a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card Stock. I used it hide the adhesive for the vellum and adhered both to the card with E-Z Runner. My greeting is from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and it’s heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a square of Dark Molasses which is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. The flower and leaves are adhered to the square and a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and Clear Droplets are added to complete the card! I do love that flower, especially against the dark wood and gold glitter really makes it pop! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has done to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery! Thank you for staring another week off here with me!

Kind Feathers

Kind Feathers

I had a very productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! I decided that I would do a Lawn Fawn New Release Pre-Order and offer a 20% discount! If any of you are Lawn Fawn fans you should go and take a look! You can click HERE to go to the Lawn Fawn New Release Collection. If you place your order by January 29th it will ship out to you on February 23rd which is release day. All orders over $50 qualify for FREE Shipping! Brand new Lawn Fawn goodies at 20% off, yay! I have looked at all of the new release and there are some awesome stamps set and dies in there! I can’t wait to get my hands on it! It was also a nice day because of the Crop. I had a good time with all of the ladies! After work I came home and watched a little TV, I’m getting caught up on This is Us and I’m really enjoying it! I did have a few errands to run so I went to the gas station and Target. Today I’ll go through the pre-orders from yesterday and start making my list! 😀

I have another simple card with a stamped background to share with you. I really am loving the stamped backgrounds lately. It’s a great way to stretch your stamps! To create the background I stamped the feathers from the Concord & 9th Give Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Fresh Peach, Soft Granite and Charcoal Ink. My greeting is cut out from a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card Stock and Black. I adhered a strip of 48lb Vellum around the back of the stamped panel with E-Z Runner and then adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My kind greeting is adhered with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive, the black first to the Vellum and then the Silver Glitter on top and slightly offset. Just a few Silver and Sparkling Clear Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and done! I love that kind Die and of course the feathers. I think this makes a fun and different thank you card, don’t you?! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! I always appreciate your visits and your comments make my days much better! Have a nice simple Sunday! 🙂
