Freshly Made Sketches 309

I don’t think that the internet is enjoying the shift to cooler weather, it’s painfully slow here lately! I did had a very productive day yesterday despite my little three hour trip into Manhattan to drop off Taylor. She was little anxious but after 6 hours of travel she made it safely to her destination. We also finally got one of the contractors to send an estimate for the work on Jim’s PA house. Things move at a very different pace up there! This morning I’m going to try and check a few more things off my to-do list and then Jim will be by later for dinner! 😀

My little bit of craftiness yielded my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge…

To start my card I stamped the large flower from the Concord & 9th Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Lavender and Sugarplum using my Mini MISTI so I could double stamp. The flower is cut out with the Coordinating Die. Onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock trimmed to 4″ wide I adhered a strip of Gold Mirror Card and then the flower. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto 65lb Vellum. I used the squashed hexagon die from the Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Dies to cut out the greeting. The right edge is folded over and adhered to the inside of the card with a few dots of Multi-Matte Medium behind the heat embossing to keep it in place. A simple card with that awesome huge flower! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks so much for coming by! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 264

Hey there peeps! Mid-week already! I managed to get a bunch of stuff done yesterday, some computer stuff in the morning and a little cleaning in the afternoon. I do so love a productive day! Had a little dinner with my Parent’s, Dad is doing much better. I saw Taylor for a bit, she is going to Massachusetts to see a friend and has never taken Amtrak before so I get to go into Manhattan this morning and put her on the train and then come back home. Good times! LOL! 😀

Today’s card is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I felt a little Deja Vu! Typically Halloween colors but not for me! LOL! I stamped the ornament from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and the merry and bright with Carrot using my Mini MISTI. The image is then colored in with Copics. For the ornament topper I cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card with the Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies. The middles of the flowers have a little Singo Gold Gel Pen. The background looked a little plain so I added dots with pen, one of my favorite ways to fill in a background! Yes, it’s not your typical red and green but it’s still merry and bright! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge!

SIP Challenge 121 – Tic-Tac-Toe

SIP Challenge 121 – Tic-Tac-Toe

A crisp good morning to you! We got a taste of Fall last night with temps in 40’s! I’ll take Summer back now thanks! I had a pretty productive morning yesterday which is always a good way to start the day! In the afternoon I got a text from Heather that one of her cats got out so me, Kim, Stephanie and George spent a few hours combing the neighborhood. They eventually found the cat and are going to get a GPS collar for her, she gets out a lot! I went back over to Heather’s later and we ran a few errands. My evening was finished off with a little TV. This morning I have a bunch of things to get to and some cleaning to do around the house. 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means it time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I went diagonal from top left to bottom right on the Tic-Tac-Toe board. My card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock has the front covered in a piece of paper from the My Mind’s Eye Essentials – Wood 6×6 Paper Pad. I heat embossed a flower and two leaves from the Essentials by Ellen Bold Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White and Copper Embossing Powder onto some 65lb Vellum. The Coordinating Dies are used to cut them out. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in White Embossing Powder onto the woodgrain paper. The leaves are adhered with E-Z Runner and the flower with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. A sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Copper Sequins completes the card. I love the nice pop of white against the dark woodgrain! The card would work well for a wedding, don’t you think?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! There are some more great cards over on the BLOG so be sure to stop by and take a look! We hope that you will share your take in the gallery with us! Thanks for coming by today! Have an amazing Tuesday! 🙂

A good Monday to you my friends! I had a very nice weekend! I was over Jim’s on Saturday working on some more projects that I’m happy to say we got them finished! Saturday night we went over and had dinner with Kim. So nice to get to see her, it’s been way too long. Yesterday I had a lazy day, it was rainy so I watched some more of the Arrow on Netflix. This morning I’m going to get stuff done! Have to make up for yesterday! How was your weekend?! 😀

I’m starting the week off with my card for the Paper Players challenge…

I used the Hero Arts Halloween Trimmings Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set and heat embossed the greeting in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and the bats in Hero Arts Black Sparkle Embossing Powder onto a piece of Pluto Stardream Curious Metallic Card Stock. That is then adhered to a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. They wanted clean and simple, I think that fits the bill! Love the nice sparkly bats on the shiny dark card stock! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Happy Friday! I had a quiet day yesterday, got some thing done and ran a few errands. This morning I’m off to Manhattan to see my friend Isabella. We always have a nice visit! I’m going to make dinner tonight for Jim and I, I haven’t cooked in a long time so wish me luck! LOL! 😀

My card that I have to share with you today is for the Fab Friday challenge…

I used some new goodies from Concord & 9th! My background is the Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp. I stamped the images in Black Licorice using my MISTI and then used the fill in’s and Moonstone, Lobster, Doe, Sunflower, Noble Fir, Carrot, Sugarplum and Jalapeño Ink. It’s trimmed and adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto piece of Black 110lb that I cut out with the Concord & 9th Ribbon Banner Die. It’s adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A strip of Black 110lb and Chili Pepper are adhered to the lower right to stay true to the sketch and the card is done!

Freshly Made Sketches 308

Freshly Made Sketches 308

A rainy dreary morning here on Long Island but I had a very nice day yesterday! It was fun to see Ella and Tom. Lunch with my friend Kim was great and the weather was perfect! Taylor retrieved me from the station and dropped me off at home. Mum didn’t know what to make for dinner so I ran to the store with her and then the evening was finished with an early Thirsty Thursday and a late night trip to Target! I got up with the intentions of making my card this morning but I have been reading the new Dan Brown book Origins and can’t put it down! It’s fantastic! I have some cleaning and laundry to do this morning and then who knows?! 😀

I did finally get a card made and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese Lawn Cut to cut out a piece of DCWV Mariposa 12×12 Paper. After adhering a strip of Smoky Slate across the lower half of the card I added the frame. My butterfly is cut from some Gold Glitter Card using the Concord & 9th Floral & Flutter Dies. To adhered that to the card I used a little piece of 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Dies and is cut from a piece of Silver Glitter Card and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I do so enjoy making a card using only dies ever so often, changes it up a bit! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

Another fun filled day! I took my Dad to the Doctor and we were there for three hours!! That’s just crazy! Most of the time was spent just sitting there. Nah, neither one of us had anything else to do, not to worry! LOL! Heather and I did a quick BJ’s run when she got home from work and then Taylor came by for some video watching. So good to spend quality time with the child! This morning I’m off to Manhattan to visit my friend Ella and maybe meet Kim for lunch. Now that’s a better day! 😀

It’s Wednesday and time for a new Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I have been so loving the super simple cards lately, not for any other reason than I love all of the white space. Onto my card Base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the stars from the Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lime Green, Soft Lilac and Soft Pink. The Merry is cut out with the die from the set from a piece of Black 110lb and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. All that was left to do was stamp the Christmas in Black!

SIP Challenge 120 – Colors!

SIP Challenge 120 – Colors!

A rainy day here yesterday. I had to take Mum to the dentist in the morning and then Jim came by for a while. We ran to Target and got all caught up. After dinner Taylor stopped by, oh how I love my child! She spent most of the time here watching YouTube videos on her phone! I have some places to take my Parents today and some cleaning to do, a fun Tuesday! LOL! 😀

It is time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge and that’s always fun…

A timely trio of colors! I love to make a card with a stamped background and the best sets to do that with are the ones with little images. I used the Hero Arts Halloween Trimmings Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set with Black, Orange Soda and Lime Green Ink to stamp my images directly onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The greeting is also from that set and is cut from a piece of Black 110lb and Silver Glitter Card. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere them to the card, slightly offset, and it’s finished! A fun and simple Halloween card, maybe for my little buddy Daniel! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge!

Grateful Amethyst Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Grateful Amethyst Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Happy Thursday peeps! I had a nice day yesterday with Sue. We got a lot accomplished and went out and had a nice lunch. There is always more to do so I’ll be heading back over again some time next week, I do love a productive day! Taylor stopped by in the evening and we had dinner with my Parents and after that some TV, binge watching Arrow at the moment and really liking it! Today I’ll catch up on This is Us and maybe I’ll get to some of the cabinet doors! 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! We featured and Ink Only Challenge for last month so I did a little ink blending on today’s card! One of my all time favorite images is the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock. I used the Coordinating Die to cut out the negative from a piece of Masking Paper and used my Mini Ink Blending Tools and some Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord Distress Ink to color it in. After I removed the Mask I added the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine is spattered over the card and while that dried I cut out the grateful from a piece of Gold Glitter Card and adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I love the purple and blue hues in the gold leaf and never underestimate the effect of a little ink spatter!

I hope that you like the card for my October Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog!
