Freshly Made Sketches 299

That was a very quiet Wednesday. I guess they are good to have every so often. Taylor did come by in the evening and we watched a movie. This morning I do have a bunch of things to do and some errands to run. What are you up to today?! 😀

Another thing that I did do yesterday was make my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

To start my card I adhered a piece of Desert Storm 80lb to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. On the left is a piece of paper from the Crate Paper Story Teller 6×6 Paper Pad cut into strips to match the sketch. The large you is cut from a piece of Black 110lb using the Simon Says Stamp Big You Die, it’s adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Onto another piece of Black I heat embossed the hello from the Simon Says Stamp I See You Photopolymer Stamp Set and adhered that to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A simple card with one of my favorite types of pattern paper, a map! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by! Have an amazing Thursday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 254

Another fabulous day! I actually ended up having a lot of stuff to do yesterday! I forgot that my car was supposed to be inspected at the end of July so I got that done… oops! I also had a few projects that I helped Jim with, keeps my mind sharp! He came by after work and we watched a movie and just relaxed. What a nice way to end a Tuesday! 😀

We are mid-week so it’s time for a new Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I can’t believe it but I couldn’t find anything more backyard BBQ than flowers! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Jellybean to the bottom and Surf Blue to the top. To mask off the areas I used a piece of Post-it Tape. My flowers are from the Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I atamped the flowers in Black for the outline and added the centers with Duckling. My stems are stamped in Jellybean and they are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. The stems are adhered with Multi-Matte Medium and the flowers with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is cut from a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock and Black 110lb with the Simon Says Stamp Painted Summer Die. I used Multi-Purpose Spray to adhere them to each other and the card. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins fill in some of the space around the flowers and the card is done! I do love a nice simple crisp card, I think this one fits the bill! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for visiting!

SIP Challenge 110 – Primary Colors!

Another Monday for the books! I was relatively productive, got a few things done in the morning, did a little cleaning and some reading. After dinner I ran to BJ’s with Heather and bumped into Andrew’s Parents. So nice to see them! I have no idea what’s on for today but I’m sure that it will be a good time! 😀

It’s Tuesday so time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I went with a shade of one of the colors! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my MISTI to stamp the large and small hearts and greeting from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set on the inside and outside of the card in Bubblegum and Black Licorice. I also stamped an additional greeting on the inside. To cut out the heart on the outside I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Dies. All that was left to do was to add Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink and Watermelon Sequins! A simple card that is stepped up with the negative die cut on the front! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Primary Colors Challenge! We hope to see your card in the gallery so stop by the BLOG for a little more inspiration! Thanks for visiting! Have an interesting Tuesday! 🙂
