SIP Challenge 183 – All My Love!

SIP Challenge 183 – All My Love!

Hello my friends! It was incredibly cold here yesterday! Like in the minuses with the 40 MPH winds that we had. Thankfully we didn’t get any of the snow on Saturday but boy that cold was nasty. I had to put the spare tire back in the car where it belongs, only took a month to do that, and picked the coldest day so far to do so, and I thought my ears fell off! LOL! It’s to be a little better today but not nice and in the 40’s like we have been having. I’m done with Winter, anyone else?! 😀

Tuesday and time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

To start my card I stamped the Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp using my MISIT in Minty Fresh Ink once onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My tag is cut from Desert Storm 80lb using the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Dies. The greeting is from the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Amalgam Ink. I cut the the luggage tag part from Grey 110lb and slipped it thought the hole in the top of the tag. The heart is from the same set and is cut from Real Red Glitter Card. The elements behind the heart are from the Concord & 9th Everyday Bouquet Die Set that is exclusively included in the Concord & 9th Everyday Bouquet Turnabout Toolkit. I cut them from Merman, Gold Mirror Card and Galvanized Curious Metallic. They are added to the back of the heart and the heart is attached to the tag with 3M Foam Tape. I added the tag to the card base with more 3M Foam Tape. A few Faceted Acrylic Jewels finish off the card. I love the heart with the elements peeking out and the fun subtle triangle background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this weeks Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG for more inspiration from the rest of the Team. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a nice rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 182 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

SIP Challenge 182 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

Hi there! It’s been getting progressively colder here and we are supposed to get some snow over the weekend. Not feeling that at all. You know how I love Winter! I’m already counting down the days until Spring! LOL! 😀

It’s time for what has become my lone weekly post! A new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

We haven’t had a Tic-Tac-Toe in a while! I went across the top row. To start, I heat embossed the heart from the Concord & 9th Sending Love Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Calypso Coral and then used my Scissors to cut it out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I heat embossed the arrow. The hearts with the xo and the small heart cluster are from the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped randomly in Hero Arts Fresh Peach. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I added the large heart to the card with 3M Foam Tape. It needed a little bling so I added some Peach Sequins and a few Basic Jewels Rhinestones. I do love a stamped background and that gold embossed heart pops nicely on the Coral! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards including our newest member, Lisa Mackey!

Hello and and a Happy Tuesday to you all! It’s a little rainy here but not too cold so I’ll take that! How are the first couple of day of 2019 treating you?! My year has been pretty good so far, let’s hope that it just keeps getting better for all of us!

It’s time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

Nice and easy! I was pressed for time so I went with super simple for my card! I stamped the bird and branch image along with my greeting from the Concord & 9th Songbird Photopolymer Stamp Set in Amalgam Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. To color in the bird I used my Prismacolor Pencils. Just some simple coloring using the blender pencil to smooth out the lines. All that was left to do was to adhere the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock! A nice simple card just to let someone know you are thinking of them! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery!

SIP Challenge 180 – Thank You!

SIP Challenge 180 – Thank You!

Happy New Year!! I had a busy month in December and didn’t have any time to craft which was not a good thing! I did manage to get a little crafty time in yesterday with Andrea on FaceTime, we haven’t done that in a while! One of the big things that happened to me was on Christmas Day. I was on my way to see a friend and hit a pothole on the Southern State Parkway. It broke the spring and some other important parts in the front of the car which in turn sliced the tire off of the rim. $1,700 later the car was fixed. That’s a lot of damage from a pothole! Merry Christmas to me, not! Other than that I had a good month and I have missed you guys! I plan to attempt to get back to being a little more crafty in the new year!

To start off the year we have a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Blog. We took a little time off and to start we are making thank you cards!

I used a whole bunch of dies and no stamps to make my card! The greenery uses dies from the Concord & 9th Season Of Cheer, Just Because and Beautiful Branches Sets and they are cut from Early Espresso, Soft Sky, Garden Green, Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive. My rectangle is cut from a piece of Desert Storm 80lb with the die from the Concord & 9th Just Because Dies. I cut the season from Silver Glitter Card and the of thanks from a piece of Dark Grey 110lb, both of those dies are from the Concord & 9th Season of Cheer Set. The greenery is added to a panel of Light Grey 110lb with Glue Tube. I adhered the season and of thanks to the rectangle and then added it to the panel with 3M Foam Tape. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I love all of the greenery behind the sentiment and the way it stands out against the grey background! I hope that you like my Design Team Card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with and share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that your year is off to a great start! 🙂
