Simple So Sweet

Simple So Sweet

Well, the rainy day did turn out to be a productive one! I got most of what I had to do finished! I also got a haircut and ran some errands and had some lunch with Heather. Dinner with my Parents and then finished the evening off with some TV. Today I think I’m supposed to go over to Jim’s to help with some projects! I never fins out until the last minute! LOL! Should be a fun day! 😀

I have a simple fun card for you today! I used the Concord & 9th Orange You Sweet Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp some images and a greeting onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To line up the greeting I stamped the outline and then used my Mini MISTI to stamp the colored part. It needed something more so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Onyx and American Crafts Orange Sequins! Like I said super simple card but I love the orange slices and fun greeting! I hope that you like today’s card! Thank you so much for coming by! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Case a Designer!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Case a Designer!

Hello again! I’m back for my second post for today! We have a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog for the month of March! This time we ask you to CASE a Designer!

Just choose one of the Design Team’s cards as your inspiration and go from there! I love Lindsey’s simple Lovely Cards! You can see the original post HERE. I thought the way that she used the Hello Lovely stamp to create a subtle background was so clever! First I used the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Coordinating Butterfly Card Dies to cut out the wings, overlay and body for the butterfly. I positioned the wings in the MISTI and stamped the outline in Black Licorice and the fill-in in Juice Box. To hold them together I adhered a piece of Black behind the wings, adhered the Vellum die cut wings on top and then the body. For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I placed the folded card into my MISTI and positioned the flower cluster from the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set where I wanted it, inked it up with some Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers Ink and stamped. While the card was in the MISTI I also stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Beauty Set in Black Licorice in the lower right corner. The butterfly is adhered to the card with a 3D Foam Square. I stamped two more of the small butterflies in Ballet Slippers and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Ballerina Pink and Orchid Sequins to finish the card. I love that butterfly and the subtle stamped background, thanks for the inspiration Lindsey! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th CASE a Designer Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Design Team has done to inspire you and we would love for you to share your card with us in the gallery! You have the whole month to play along! Thanks for stopping by again today! I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Thursday! 🙂

Stamp, Ink, Paper Store December Card Class!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Store December Card Class!

Well, I think that I experienced a new level of freeing cold yesterday! Not so much the temperature which was 22 but the wind was had gusts up to 60mph! It was the kind of cold that gets into your bones and you can’t get rid of it! Card Class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was fun! My friend Jan comes in between the two times so she can be nice and relaxed! She does such a great job when she does! I had to run out to the Post Office, I drove because it was way too cold and windy to walk! Renee and I spent the rest of the day finishing up projects and around 5:15 my little buddy Daniel called me to ask me when I was coming home because he was waiting for me! I left at 5:30, can’t keep that little boy waiting! When I got my Parent’s I had dinner with him and Taylor. After he showed me a new truck that he wants, I’m sure that my Parent’s have already bought it! LOL! He also insisted that we take a selfie! He members better than I do!

As you can see from the picture he was trying to push the button! My Parents took him home around 7:00 and I headed over to Heather’s to get her so that we could run some errands. We finished that quickly and went back to her house. I helped her wrap one of George’s Christmas Gifts and was home by 10:30. Today is the second day of Card Class sure to be even more fun! 🙂

I have seen a few requests in the comments recently asking me to share more of the things that I do at the Store so today I’m sharing the four projects that we made in this month’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Store December Card Class. The featured company is Hero Arts!

The first card is the shaker! I used the Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle Dies to cut out the window from a piece of Solar White 80lb and a piece of Fun Foam. Then I traced the inside the window onto a piece of Moonstone Blue. I stamped the bridge from the Hero Arts City Adventure Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cup O Joe and the snowflakes from the Hero Arts Holiday Mittens Stamp & Die Combo in Tide Pool. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Hero Arts Black. Next I added the Acetate to the back of the white panel and and then adhered the Fun Foam with E-Z Runner. Some Martha Stewart Crystal Coarse Glitter is sprinkled on the blue and then the white window panel is adhered to it with more E-Z Runner. My tree is from the Hero Arts Snowy Tree Stamp & Die Combo, it’s stamped in Mint Julep and Tide Pool. I used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying so that I could emboss the snow layer in Hero Arts Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. The tree is then adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I love the card, it’s a simple shaker but looks like you are looking out of an apartment window at the Brooklyn Bridge in the snow!

The second card is another simple Christmas card. I stamped the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Background onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with Mint Julep Ink. My tags are from the Hero Arts Holiday Tags Stamp & Die Combo. The large tag is stamped in Dark Quatz and the smaller one is heat embossed with Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Next I tied a piece of May Arts Natural Twine into a bow and adhered the panel to my card base of Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The tags are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares and then a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins are added with two to hide the adhesive holding on the Vellum tag. Love the simplicity of the card and the different colors!

My third card is actually one that I CASE’d from Yana Smakula! As soon as I saw the card I loved it and had to make it right away! The background is created by stamping some of the images from the Hero Arts Vintage Post Stamp & Die Combo, the first layer is heat embossed in Hero Arts Satin Pearl Embossing powder and the second layer in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to add a little Soft Pool Ink to highlight the heat embossed images. Next I used the die from the set to cut out a notch in the side of the card. I turned the card over and placed a gift card so that it showed though the notch and traced around it on a piece of Fun Foam. Using my Craft Knife I cut out the place where the gift card was traced onto the Fun Foam and adhered it to the back of the background. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. I used 3D Foam Squares to adhered the greeting over a piece of Natural Twine and then adhered the background to the card with E-Z Runner. A few Rose Gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequins are added, a gift card is slipped into the slot and the twine is tied in a bow! I really do love the idea of this card, that Yana is so clever!

sip-card-class-hero-12-2016-card-3

Finally, instead of another card this month I thought it would be neat to make two quick and easy tags! All of the images are from the Hero Arts Winter Scene Stamp & Die Combo. I stamped the jars in Soft Pool, the trees in Green Hills, the deer and bear in Cup O Joe and the house in Wet Cement. A little snow is stamped in more Soft Pool and then they are cut out using the Coordinating Dies. I punched a hole in the top and tied some Natural Twine though. Super simple yet really neat gift tags! That Winter Scene Set is still a favorite of mine!

Freshly Made Sketches 262

Freshly Made Sketches 262

It was a seriously windy day here yesterday, especially by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! Had to be gusts up to 50 MPH! I made a few cards and got some other things taken care of. My list sometimes seems to never get any shorter, but I’m sure that we all feel that way! When I got to my Parent’s house Daniel was still there! I had a quick dinner and then he and I played for a while! He has the best laugh and boundless energy! I wish he would share some of that energy with me! LOL! After my Parents left to take him home I came to my house and watched a little YouTube, Friday night fun! Today Renee has a guest at the store teaching some classes and I have my little buddy Daniel’s 3rd Birthday party! That will be loads of fun! 😀

The card that I made at the Store is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

freshly-made-sketches-262

A super simple sketch indeed! My card begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Background stamp onto a piece of Kraft with some Hero Arts Soft Brown Ink and the panel is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. Across the top half is a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card that I adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My card and greeting are from the Hero Arts Kelly’s Warm & Cozy Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the card in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. My greeting is heat embossed onto a piece of Cosmic Grape with Hero Arts Gold Embossing powder. I cut them both out with Scissors and adhere them to the gold strip with 3D Foam Squares. A little scattering os Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Mossy Green, Raspberry and Gold Sequins Completes the card! I love that Hand Drawn Snowflakes Stamp and the simple car from the Warm & Cozy Set! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks you for taking some time out of your day to come by and see me! Have a stupendous Saturday! 🙂

Stamp, Ink, Paper Store June Class Cards!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Store June Class Cards!

Sunday… I have to say the day now that I’m at the store 7 days a week the days just run into one another! LOL! Yesterday we had more gorgeous weather! Renee had a crop at the store so I got to chat with all the ladies! I helped Edna use her new Altenew stamps and inks, she added some flowers to a scrapbook page and they looked great! Renee brought in the delicious bagels from Miller Place and I had one for breakfast and another one for lunch! Around 4:00 I got a very nice surprise! Andrew stopped by! It was so good to see him! We chatted for a while and I showed him my part of the store. We both headed out around 5:30, Mum had text me to ask me what I wanted from the Chinese food place for dinner and I text her when I left so they could go and get it. We had dinner and Taylor and Kiera stopped by. Afterwards I helped my Dad with the retractable awning that they have on the front of the house and then ran a few errands. When I got back home I crafted for a bit and then watched a little TV. Felt so good to sit on the couch for a bit! Toady it’s just me and Angie at the store, Renee will be out East with her family celebrating her Birthday a little early! Oh, no news from on the baby front, but I’ll keep you posted! How is your weekend going?

Today I finally remembered that I hadn’t shared the cards from the June Stamp, Ink, Paper Card Class! So that’s what I have for you today! They all use stamps and dies from the latest Lawn Fawn release. 24 people made 4 cards each! That’s a lot of cutting and I couldn’t have done it without a little help from Sue and Brian!! The mermaid one is a slider and the smoothie one is the shaker! I think that the smoothie one was the favorite! I hope that you enjoy the cards as much as the class did! Hopefully one day I might get to see some of you at Card Class! Thank you for sharing in my Sunday! Have an awesome day everyone! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 182

It’s Wednesday and after a day filled with rain and gale force warnings followed by a 4 hour power outage the weather has finally settled down here! I had Daniel for a little while in the afternoon and we sort of watched Home but he kept getting distracted by the jellybeans, lollipops, pretzels and chocolate that I have in the house. I never realized how much junk food that I possess, but he quickly pointed that out! The rain stopped for a bit so I took him out for a ride on his bike, halfway down the block it started to pour so we ran back to the house! He had his hands over his eyes while I pushed and steered! After I gave him back to my parents I went over to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee and her son Nick was there so he and I played some Heads Up! He’s pretty good! On the way back home Heather called so I stopped by her place and got her and we ran to BJ’s and then went back to her house and watched some TV. This morning I’m heading into Manhattan to see Anna for a bit and then go and pay my friend Isabella a visit!

If it’s mid-week then that means that it’s time for another Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS182 DT Sketch 2-17-2016

I went with a nice simple birthday card! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares to cut out a piece of paper from the My Mind’s Eye Essentials:Wood 6×6 Paper Pad. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL with a piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord spooled and tucked behind the upper right corner. Three feathers are cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Feathers Craft Dies from Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Hello, Beautiful Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on a piece of Black 110lb. I adhered the greeting over the feathers with Foam Tape. The button is from an ancient sequin pack that I got from Target forever-ago, I tied another piece of the Hemp Cord in a bow and adhered it to the card with a Glue Dot. To give the card some shine I added a few Hazel and Ruby The Makery Shine and Sparkle and Pretty Pink Posh Aquamarine and Mossy Green Sequins to the wood panel. I do love the simplicity of the card and the rustic feel that the hemp cord and wood paper give 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 enter yours in the gallery! Thanks for coming by today, I wish you a Wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Winter Wonderland Ornaments & The Ink Pad Tags Class!

Sunday… the day of… rest?! Nah! I had a restful Saturday instead. I got my laundry done and did some crafty things, snuck in some TV. I love when I watch a movie and it makes you think, and not what you would expect to think about either. Anyway, today I’m off to Manhattan to hang out with Barbara at The Ink Pad. It’s going to be another chilly day, only in the 40’s! Where did those 60’s go?! They say they will back in a few days and I’m looking forward to their return! What’s on for you today?

My project that I have to share with you today is another ornament, this time a shaker! I cut some Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the Papertrey Ink Scene It: Basic Backer Die. The background is a piece of Black 110lb Card Stock cut with the Papertrey Ink Scene It: Skyscapes Dies. I adhered it to the backer with Multi-Matte Medium. Another piece of Solar White 110lb is cut out with the Sizzix Circles Framelits. I cut it in a little less than half and then stamped my greeting from the Hero Arts Winter Scene Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. My skyline is cut out of some Silver Glimmer Paper with the Mama Elephant Cityscape Creative Cuts and also adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. I added some Martha Stewart Chunky Glitter and then adhered the ornament half to the backer with more Multi-Matte Medium. A piece of Hemptique Black & White Baker’s twine tied through the top give me something to hang it on my tree with! I really do love making these ornaments and the Scene It Dies make is super easy! I hope that you enjoyed my ornament, they are fun to make and I hope that you will try one!

November Lawn Fawn Class at Scrap-A-Latte!

Phew! Another week done! Time is just flying by… or is just me?! I enjoyed my day yesterday after my headache left! I went over to visit my friend Christina, her son Tyler and her sister Jen. It was the first time that I have seen her house and it’s really nice and really big! After that I came home and puttered around the house before heading over to Scrap-A-Latte. Danielle came early and we went over to Red Robin to have dinner. I miss seeing her at work and it was great to catch up! Card class was fun as always and I have the projects that we made to share with you today. This morning I’m heading into Manhattan for a day at The Ink Pad which I always enjoy! What’s on for you today?

Paper Craft Crew Theme 171

So how is your week going so far? Mine isn’t too bad, I actually got a lot accomplished around the house yesterday! Brian came over in the morning and helped me rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and it seems much bigger now! I dusted and vacuumed the whole house and then went on a purge spree! Love when I get in that mood! I like to keep boxes that things come in, not the best idea when you have a very small apartment! I threw out a ton of boxes and other crap that I no longer need! Feels so good! I had dinner with my parents, brother and Daniel. He was a bit cranky yesterday because he skipped his nap! I get like that too! LOL! Later on I ran up to Michael’s to get a few supplies and then came home and crafted for a bit before watching Limitless! Love that show!

Well, it’s Wednesday and that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s challenge and it’s a theme…

PCCCS171 DT Theme 11-18-2015

Thank you cards, you can never have enough of those! My card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and I covered the entire front in a piece of Kraft Card Stock. The background is a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card that I stamped some leaves, well, a lot of leaves from the Simon Says Stamp Apple of My Pie Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and then heat embossed them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. They are colored in with my Paintbrush, some water and Yellow Ochre, Vermillion, Crimson Red and Deep Green Royal Langnickel Watercolors. Here is what the panel looks like by itself…

PCCCT171 Background-WM

After they dried I adhered the panel to the card with Tombo Extreme Adhesive. The greeting is also form the Apple of My Pie Stanp Set and is heat embossed with more Gold on Vellum. I cut the frame out with the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese Lawn Cut from another piece of Kraft, heat embossed a additional greeting on the bottom of the frame and adhered the greeting to it. I decided at the last minute that I could make this a shaker card so I adhered 3M Foam Tape along the edges and filled it with some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Confetti. I do love that greeting and the way that you can still make out the leaves behind it and see the confetti! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Theme challenge! Stop by the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have done and enter your card in the gallery! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

October Lawn Fawn Card Class!

Happy Saturday peeps! I had a good day and a fun evening yesterday! In the morning I went and got my hairscut and then went and had an eye exam and ordered some new contacts. I had to stop at Michaels before coming back to my house to meet up with Andrew for a bit. He helped me with my project that I have been working on and we got the first part finished! More on that tomorrow! Around 4:00 I started to make my way over to Scrap-A-Latte for night two of card class. Renee and I had some things to discuss and we had some dinner. Class was a blast as usual, my friend Danielle came for the first time and had a great time! Everyone shared their supplies with her and she will be back next month! I really do love the class, everyone is so nice and we have such a fun time! Can’t wait to get started on next month’s cards! This morning I’m going to head into Manhattan to meet up with Grace! We have spoken to each other here on the blog for over two years! I’m so excited to finally get to meet her in person!

As always, today I have the cards from class! We used Lawn Fawn again and everyone loved the cards! I have three because I forgot to take a picture of the gift box that we made, bit I’ll do that and post it tomorrow! Without further ado, here are the cards…

SAL LAwn Fawn Warm Wishes-WM

SAL Lawn Fawn Park Penguin-WM

The cute little penguin skating in the park!

SAL Lawn Fawn Joy Shaker-WM

I hope that you like the cards as much as the class did! I’m off to get ready for my little trip into the city! Thanks for coming by today and I wish you a all a fun filled Saturday! 🙂
