SIP Challenge 88 – Anything But a Card!

SIP Challenge 88 – Anything But a Card!

Is it just me or do Monday’s seem to last a little longer than other days of the week?! I had a good day despite that! Renee and I worked on projects as always. My friend Arnise stopped by to get some Lawn Fawn goodies and I left a little early. When I got home I took a little nap before dinner and then had a few errands to run before settling in for a smidge of TV before bed. Today more projects and planning, never a dull moment at the Store! 😀

Now on to today’s post, it’s time for a new challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper

I made a fun little box using Lawn Fawn’s new Fancy Box Lawn Cuts. The box is cut from Moonstone using the die, folded and assembled with some Scor-Tape. To decorate the top I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and the Lawn Fawn Little Picket Fence Border dies to cut out two pieces of Crisp Green for the hillsides and a piece of Solar White 80lb for the fence. I adhered them to each other with E-Z Runner, trimmed them to fit on the lid of the box, stamped my greeting and adhered them to lid. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Jet Black. I colored them in with my Copics and cut them out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I added some Gelly Roll Stardust Glitter Pen to the candles and a few 3D Foam Squares adhere the images to the lid and the box is done! I think this would make a nice way to give a gift card or a little prezzie! I hope that you like my Design Team project for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Anything But a Card Challenge! Take a little time to go over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with to inspire you and add your project to the gallery! Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!

Mojo Monday 486

Mojo Monday 486

Another pleasant day at the Store! Renee, Angie and I all worked on our respective projects in the morning. Renee had a class at 1:00 and one of our customers is a LuLaroe Rep so she had a Pop-Up event at the Store. Lots of people came in and bought things. I left around 2:30 and came home to find Taylor at my house. We chatted and waited for my friend Jim to come over. I’m helping him scan in pictures for an album that he’s working on. We had dinner and watched some TV before he left to pick up his daughter. I have been meaning to call Danielle and catch up with her and I finally did. I still miss her so much! Today I have my usual projects to get done, always a labor of love! 😀

It’s Monday so you know what that means, time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

Yes, I played with yet some more of the new Lawn Fawn release for today’s card! My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Sewn with Love Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped my images in Jet Black and colored them in with Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Purple Hearts. I used the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Rectangles, Squares and Circles to cut out a piece of Lawn Fawn Gummy Bears 12×12 Paper, Chinese Red, Tropical Sea and Wildflower Honey. The Patterned Paper is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is a piece of Ballerina Pink with some Yellow Embroidery Floss wrapped around it. On top of that I adhered the rest of the shapes and stamped the Lovely on the Yellow Circle. The Sew is stamped in Jalapeño and cut out again with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I adhered all of the images with 3D Foam Squares and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze, Pink Blush, Marshmallow and Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is done! I think that the patterned paper and the Zig Zag Dies really add to the sewing theme of the card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the other Design Team members have made to inspire you and add your card to the gallery! Thanks so much for starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Out of this Box Card

Out of this Box Card

What a nice Saturday! Crop days are always fun at the Store! I had a nice productive morning getting many things that I have been putting off finished! I also got to have a nice long chat with my friend Evelyn and ran out to the Post Office and Aldi with Marianne. After work I stopped by my friend Louis’ house and we ran a few errands. I saw my Parents for a bit when I got home and then went over to Heather and George’s for dinner. He made grilled oysters, seared scallops, salad and seared tuna steaks, it was all really good! We hung out and watched some TV and I was home by 11:00. Taylor fell asleep on the couch, woke up when I got in and left! I have a lot more to get done at the Store today but it’s always fun stuff no matter what! 🙂

I spent a little time playing again with more of the new Lawn Fawn release and made a fun Pop-Up card! This card will be offered as a Class at the Store this Thursday, March 2nd between 11:00AM and 4:00PM. You can go to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store site to call the Store and sign up! The card itself is cut from Battleship Gray and Black using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up Lawn Cut. I assembled it with Scor-Tape. On the back black panel I used the Lawn Fawn Starry Skies Lawn Cuts to cut out the stars and adhered it to the back panel. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Out of this World Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped all of the images in Jet Black and colored them in with Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the inside of the card with Acetate and E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto one of the black panels and adhered to the front flap. I love all of the space images and think this would make an awesome Birthday card for a little boy! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Happy Fab Jar

Happy Fab Jar

Time for the weekend peeps! We have had a few nice days and it’s to get colder today and we are to have rain, thanks Linda! LOL! My friend in Chicago sends the weather this way, I tell her only send the good stuff! I had a nice visit with my friend Marissa yesterday at the Store, she came by to pick up her Lawn Fawn goodies and we chatted and she looked through some of my early work, we had a good laugh! Renee left a little early to have dinner with her kids, it makes me very happy when she gets to spend time with them! I left around 6:00 and had dinner with my Parents and then cleaned a little before my friend Jim came over. We had a nice evening, listening to music and watching videos. Today there is a one day crop so I’ll get to spend a little time with the ladies! 😀

I of course had to play with some of the new Lawn Fawn goodies yesterday and I have to say that one of my favorite new sets is Fab Flowers. I stamped a bunch of them in Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum, Fresh Lavender, Juice Box, Sunflower, Carrot, Freshly Cut Grass, Noble Fir, Merman and Peacock. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside. Next I stamped the jar from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Photopolymer Stamp Set in Minty Fresh. I used the Add On Dies to cut out the Jar, a piece of Acetate and a piece of Solar White 80lb. On the back panel I stamped the stems in Jalapeño Ink. To make the shaker I used the same die that I used to cut out the jar to cut out a piece of 1/4″ Fun Foam. Each layer is adhered with 1/8″ Scor-Tape, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Share Kindness Mix Sequins and some Clear Seed Beads before adding the back panel. For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock and a piece of the Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper cut out with the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Rectangles Stackables. My greeting is from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped the Happy in Juice Box and the everything in Peacock. The happy is cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I adhered the jar the card and then used more 1/4″ Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the flowers, the butterfly and happy are adhered with 3M Foam Tape. I really do love the flowers and Lawn Fawn Inks, it’s a nice simple layered set made even more fun with the jar! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you for visiting today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 276

Freshly Made Sketches 276

Well, that was a very busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! The Lawn Fawn order came in and went right back out! I couldn’t have gotten it all done with the help of my friend Sue! We worked all day on making sure that everything was sorted, packed and mailed. Everyone that placed an order had their packages mailed out yesterday! I stopped at the Post Office and dropped them off and the lady couldn’t have been nicer! From there it was home to have a little dinner and then off to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday! We ended up running to Target and met up with Stephanie there. Back to the house for a lot of laughter! Taylor stopped by and George even hung out with us for bit! I do love my peeps, they are pretty awesome! Today I will input the extra Lawn Fawn and get it back up on the Store site! 😀

I have my card for they week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you today…

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Magnolias for Her Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black Crisp Ink. To color them in I used my Prismacolor Pencils, I’m getting better but am far from where I want to be with them! I did really enjoy the coloring and blending and that’s what it’s all about right?! After they were colored in I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my card I started off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The panel was actually left over from a card that I made a few weeks ago. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder onto a piece Kraft. My greeting is from the Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of 48lb Vellum. I wrapped the Vellum around the back of the woodgrain panel and then adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The leaves and single flower are adhered with more E-Z Runner. I choose to forgo the sequins to keep the focus on that pretty flower! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by to see me today! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

I can definitely say that I’m enjoying the weather, it was in the 50’s yesterday! I’ll take that! I had a nice quiet day at the Store. Worked on projects, saw customers and spoke to friends. My Lawn Fawn order will be arriving today. It will all get checked in and packaged up to be sent out with the help of my friend Sue! I’m happy that she is coming, there are a lot of packages to get together! I spoke to my friend Jim on the way home from work and then had dinner with my Parents. I sat and watched this week’s episode of This is Us and then Andrew came by for a visit! His group Satellite Lane has an album coming out soon and he gave me a little preview! It’s great and I’ll be sure and let you all know when it’s available! After he left I watched a movie and then called it a very late evening. Can’t wait to get to the store today and get all of those goodies sent out! 🙂

I have a fun set of cards to share with you for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I used the Altenew Painted Flowers and Halftone Hello Photopolymer Stamp Sets to make four one layer cards! The hello on all of them is stamped in Velvet and Jet Black Crisp Ink using my Mini MISTI. I then stamped the flowers randomly on each of the cards using Jet Black, Frayed Leaf, Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Inks. After the flowers were stamped I added the second parts of the sentiments. They needed a little something more and I was going to use sequins but I really wanted to keep them nice and flat, easy for mailing, so I added some dots with my Uniball Gold Signo Gel Pen. It gave them that something more without adding any bulk to them! I really am happy with the way they came out and can’t wait to give them to someone as a gift! I hope that you enjoyed my cards for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you very much for stopping by! Have a crafty Thursday! 🙂

Happy Wednesday! The warm temps have subsided for a while, it’s not cold, just crisp! I managed to have another productive day at the Store. I made a few cards and caught up on some paperwork. My Parent’s bought Daniel up to see me for a bit. I was eating lunch when they got there so he helped me finish my Wendy’s Chicken Nuggets, his favorite! He wanted to take some selfies but he said that we had make funny faces…

Such a silly little boy, but I’m right there with him! LOL! After work I got to see him again and we played hide and seek which he thought was great fun! Today I think that Renee might be taking the day off so I’ll be getting ready for the Lawn Fawn order to arrive tomorrow! Can’t wait to get all of those goodies shipped out to you! 😀

If it’s Wednesday then it’s time for a new Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I played with the February My Monthly Hero Kit again to make my card for today! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the clouds in Memento Tuxedo Black and the rain in Soft Pool to make my background panel and that is adhered over a piece of Canvas Texture Sky with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The single cloud, sun, star and rainbow are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to them. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum that I cut out with the Hero Arts Cloud Infinity Dies. I added the star, sun and rainbow to the Vellum cloud with 3D Foam Squares and then added more to the back to attach it to the card. I then added the single cloud with some more 3D Foam Squares and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish it off! I love that MMH Set, so many neat and different images in it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery!

SIP Challenge 87 – Kindness!

SIP Challenge 87 – Kindness!

Made it through another Monday! LOL! The Store was fun with Renee’s Home Decor Class. I got to see my friends Melissa, Debbie and Marianne, we had a good laugh! After work I came home and had dinner with my Parent’s and the chatted with my friend Greg in Indiana for a while. So good to get all caught up! Today, more projects and crafty fun! 😀

Now it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge…

Kindness, something we really need more of! The idea for today’s card started off with the world map and evolved from there. The world map is from the Concord & 9th Map Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Hero Arts Green Apple Hybrid Ink onto a piece of Moonstone that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts. I added some Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to the image and heat embossed it. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of my images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the envelopes in Wet Cement and the hearts in Soft Pink, Pale Tomato and Crimson Hybrid. The greeting is stamped in Onyx Black. I adhered the world map piece with Fun Foam and Tombo Extreme and the card is done! I love that Map Love Set, it’s retired but I still have one left in the Store! The Acts of Kindness set is also a favorite and I’ll have those back in soon! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! The rest of the Team has some great inspiration for you over on the BLOG so head on over and take a look! We hope to see your card in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 485

Mojo Monday 485

It was the most glorious day here yesterday! It got up to 65 degrees and it was nice and sunny! We had a fun day at the Store. Renee and Angie had their tag class, I worked on projects and catching up on things. I did sneak out early so I could go for a ride in the convertible! Oh how I love that! After some pizza for dinner Taylor and I watched a movie and then ran to Target. Today apparently is a Holiday, I will be at the store! Renee has her Home Decor Class today, more fun! 😀

It is Monday and that means time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

I’m really into the teals and purples lately and that is evident on today’s card! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Beautiful Words Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the outline word beautiful onto a piece of Purple Hearts with some Lawn Fawn Sugarplum Ink repeatedly to create a background and adhered it to the card. On top of that is a piece of Bo Bunny Believe Devotion 12×12 Paper with a piece of American Crafts Peacock Glitter Tape adhered across the bottom. I slipped a piece of American Crafts Purple Baker’s Twine behind the stamped background and tied it in a bow. My flagged piece of Tropical Sea has the solid beautiful heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder across the top and the YOU is die cut from Cyber Grape using the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Dies. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My butterfly is cut from more Cyber Grape using the Concord & 9th Floral and Flutter Dies. I adhered it with a sliver of a 3D Foam Square and fluffed up the wings and antenna. Some Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Sequins complete the card. I still love that butterfly after all of this time and the colors, some of my current faves! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s card and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Dance in the Rain

Dance in the Rain

The day started out a little on the cooler side but was around 55 degrees later on in the evening! We had a fun day at the Store. Angie and Renee had their book class and I got to meet a few new customers! After work I stopped home and dropped off my stuff and headed over to my friend Jim’s. He made a delicious dinner and we had a nice quiet evening watching TV. A great way to end a Saturday! The make up tag class is on at the Store today, should be fun! 😀

I finally got my February My Monthly Hero Kit yesterday so I had to give it a little love! I started off by using the stencil and some Pool and Charcoal Ink with a Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my background on a piece of Slate Card Stock. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum along with raindrops and adhered around the back of the panel. The panel is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the little umbrella person in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die and adhered to the background. To make my shaker I die cut the window from a piece of Solar White 110lb Card Stock and some Acetate. The acetate is adhered to the back of the window and some 3M Foam Tape goes on next. A little sprinkle of Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins before adding the window and the card is done! I do love a shaker and the that stencil that comes in the kit is great! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks for stopping by! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂
