Beep Boop Birthday!

Today’s lesson was that Justin does not do well on 4 hours of sleep! To make my morning even more fun, I discovered that Citibank has once again screwed up my checking account, can’t wait to go there on Monday. Then, when I arrived at the Bethpage train station at 6 AM, I discovered that last night someone had used their car to remove the crossing gates. That made the train late. I did manage to get to The Ink Pad by 7:15 where I waited outside with the rest of the peeps for Jane to come. We gave everybody their goodie bags and boarded the bus. It was a quick, pleasant ride down to Allentown with our nice driver, Michelle. I found the Stamp Show to be a little bit smaller than last year’s but there was still some great stuff to be seen and nice demos being done. I also ran into Virginia, her daughter and granddaughter, Nancy, Renee and Angie, and a bunch of other people. We left around 5 o’clock and I was home by 8:15. Andrew came by to hang out for a bit. Always great to see him, and a nice way to end my Saturday! This morning I’m off to Manhattan again to see my friends Jon and Mary. 😀

Sometimes when I do reorders for Lawn Fawn, I take time to go through the sets that I don’t have, and I snuck one into the last order that I did. I thought it would be good for making simple cards, so that’s what I used it for. I stamped the images from the Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black ink and colored them in with my Copics. I used the coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out and placed them on a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I stamped the cogs in Hippo ink and then adhered the images to the card with 3D Foam Squares. Like I said, a nice simple card, and I love that little robot! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card. As always, thank you so much for coming by. Have a simply wonderful Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 281

It rained allllll day. Not even a little break. I was holed up in the Store and made sure that I got in a lot of crafty time! Some more Lawn Fawn came in so I entered that. My friend Lori came by to pick up some stuff and I spoke to a bunch of peeps on FaceTime and the phone. Dinner with the ‘rents when I got home and then Jim came by and we ran to the supermarket to get a few last minute things for the party tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, I decided that I’m going to go on the bus to the Stamp Show in Allentown with The Ink Pad. I’ll get to see my buddy Jane! I’m sure that it will be a good time! I’ll let you know if I find any goodies! 😀

One of my projects yesterday is my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I played with some more new Concord & 9th goodies! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the lines from the Concord & 9th Love You Always Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Lilac across the top of my card base. The flower is from the Concord & 9th Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Fresh Lavender for the base and Sugarplum for the petals using my MISTI so I could triple stamp it. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out, to get the petals perfectly placed I used the negative as a template and curled the ends of them to give them little dimension. The center is a piece of Black cut out with one of the other dies from the set and it’s adhered with a 3D Foam Square. All that was left to do was to stamp the greeting, also from the Pretty Petals Set, in Black Licorice. I love that nice big bold flower and there are so many different way that you can stamp it! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂
