Freshly Made Sketches 306

Happy Friday! It’s a very happy one for me, I’m off to PA through Monday with Jim! We are going to do some repairs on the house and just relax and enjoy the fresh country air! The weather is supposed to be great, let’s hope that it stays that way! Yesterday I ran a few errands in the morning and then went to BJ’s with Heather. We had some pizza for lunch and then I came back home to see Daniel and Tristan. Jason and Erika came over and we all went out to dinner to celebrate my Parent’s 49th anniversary. I’ll be heading into Manhattan this morning to see my friends Jon and Mary. I’ll meet up with Kim for lunch and then head home. Since I will be away I won’t have any posts over the weekend or on Monday but I’ll be back on Tuesday morning with my Stamp, Ink, Paper Design Team card! 😀

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you…

I started my card by trimming a piece of paper from the Concord & 9th Aloha Fill-In Patterned Paper Pack and adhering it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My pineapple is from the Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice. I filled in the flowers and leaves with Lobster, Bubblegum, Grape Soda, Sunflower and Noble Fir and then used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. It’s adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. The greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb and cut out with the banner die from the same set. I used more 3M Foam Tape to adhered it to the pineapple. That’s it! I do love that fun nice big pineapple, especially with the fill-in images! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fun Friday and fabulous weekend! I’ll see you back here on Tuesday! 🙂

What started out as a what am I going to do day yesterday got quite busy! I ended up driving into Manhattan with Heather yesterday to drop off a computer that I had worked on for my friend Isabella. We made it in in about an hour and a half even though it’s UN Week. It did take us 45 minutes to go the last two miles! We had a nice visit with Isabella, no where near long enough and we made it back home in about and hour. Before I dropped Heather off we had some Subway for lunch and then I came back home. The rest of the day was spent dealing with phone upgrades with AT&T which I can assure you is never fun! I’ll be getting some cleaning done today, good stuff! 😀

It’s Paper Craft Crew time and this week we have a sketch for you…

Another simple one! I started by stamping the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Rust onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed one of the greetings from the set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum and flagged the left side. To hold it to the card I adhered a strip of Desert Storm down the right side and tucked the vellum under it. A little strip of Gold Glitter Card is adhered near the top right of the greeting and some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to finish the card! I think that leaf is definitely my all time favorite and the greeting is a really nice one too! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with and enter your card in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by! Have a Wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Fab Friday 121

Fab Friday 121

It was a humid, sticky day here yesterday. Not complaining, I’ll take that over cold any day! I managed to get a few things out of the way in the morning, stained a switch plate cover, did a little laundry. Around 3:00 Heather dropped me off at the train station so that I could head into Manhattan. I made sure that I left myself enough time to walk to my destination. I met up with Chantal outside her office on 5th and then we walked over to wait for Kim. She works in the building that I used to work in when I was in the city. The three of us headed over to Omar’s for dinner, they have the best hummus and falafel! From there we said goodbye to Chantal and Kim and I walked over to the theater on 45th and 8th to see Kinky Boots. I have to say it was one of the best plays that I have seen! If you get a chance to see it make sure that you do! I got back out on the Island around 11:00 and was done! I’ll be going over to Jim’s house later on this morning to wait for the guy to come and measure for the new side door. 😀

It’s Friday! And it’s a Fab Friday too! We have a simple sketch for you this time around…

I started off by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Concord & 9th Hope Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jalapeño, Grape Juice and Juice Box. They are cut out with my Scissors, love a little fussy cutting! The label is cut from a piece of Desert Storm 80lb with the Concord & 9th Hope Label Dies. I added the flowers and leaves to it with Dot Runner adhesive and 3M Foam Tape, stamped the greeting from the same set in Grape Juice and then adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock With Fun Foam. For a little extra interest I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets! Love the loose brushstroke look of the flowers, don’t you?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks for catching up with me today! Enjoy your Friday! 🙂

I am happy to report that I had a really nice Birthday!! Brian came over with lunch and we watched some of the Apple iPhone event. I cleaned a little and then Jim came by after work. We watched a little TV and then went out to dinner. After that we ran a few errands and then watched a little more TV. He got me some very thoughtful gifts too! I’m so thankful for my fiends! And I want to thank all of you for my Birthday wishes! You guys are awesome! Today, I think maybe back to work on the cabinets! 😀

It’s Wednesday and time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I kept my card nice and simple! I stamped the balloons from the Concord & 9th Happy Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Carrot, Fish Tank, Lobster and Plastic Flamingo onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb and Solar White 80lb. The ones stamped on the 80lb are cut out with the Coordinating Die and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Here’s the Scoop Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lobster. That’s it, nice and simple but definitely bright and colorful!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Ink Only!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Ink Only!

Another cool morning here on Long Island, but it’s sort of refreshing sleeping with the windows open and enjoying a little fresh air. I had a nice busy day yesterday, I cleaned and did some laundry in the morning, ran a few errands and spoke to my friend Kim. Jim came by around 4:30 and we headed down to Jones Beach to go for a walk. A nice four mile walk, it’s amazing how good you feel after a little exercise! We stopped on the way home and picked up dinner and then finished off the evening with some TV. A pretty great Friday! I think that this morning I will try and get a few more cabinet doors done! 😀

It’s time for a new challenge and I have the pleasure of sharing my card with you for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge

I do love to do some stamping! To create my card I stamped the hydrangea from the Concord & 9th Petals & Palettes Photopolymer Stamp Set onto a Post-it and cut it out with my scissors. My card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock is place into my MISTI and I stamped the flowers in Grape Soda and then just the edges in Peacock using the mask that I cut out. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in the same colors. The background needed a little something so I took a stylus and pressed it into the ink pads to create my dots! A nice somewhat simple one layer card that would be easy to make multiples of with the MISTI!

I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Embossing Challenge! We hope that you will play along with us and enter your card in the gallery over on the BLOG! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Freshly Made Sketches 304

A holiday on a Monday always makes the week move a little faster! It was sort of overcast and rainy on and off for most of the day so I thought that it would be the perfect day to catch up on my neglected blog comments. I read them as they come in but I have been bad at responding lately. But after three hours they have all been responded to! I feel the love from you guys and you should always feel it right back! I didn’t get much else done but today is a new day to accomplish! Maybe I will give the kitchen cabinets a try! 😀

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches to share with you…

To start I stamped the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp in Grape Soda, Sugarplum, Plastic Flamingo and Bubblegum using my MISTI onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The ballon and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Happy Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Bubblegum and Sugarplum. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out along with the string. They are are adhered to a piece of 27lb Pastel Pink Vellum and then adhered to the card! A simple bright birthday card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you so much for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

Pearlescent Pineapple – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello again! I’m back with post number two for today! It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. Be sure and stop by there too!

The card that I created uses the Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it onto a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. To color in the image I used my FineTec Pearl Watercolors and an Aquawash Brush. After it dried I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out along with the greeting that is heat embossed onto a piece of White Gold Curious Metallic with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. The pineapple and greeting are adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with another piece of White Gold Metallic that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers 3D Woven Embossing Folder. I do love the Pearl Watercolors, so nice and subtle. The pictures doesn’t do them justice, they look so much better in real life!

Welcome Pineapple – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Welcome Pineapple – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

A chilly happy Friday to you from Keen Lake, PA! It went down to 40 degrees here last night, I’m not ready for that! LOL! I did have a nice day yesterday, Jim and I ran some errands in the morning and fixed the screen door. Then it was off to the lake to sit and enjoy, lots off people there to chat with. We had a late dinner and then it was off to the fire to end the evening. It really is so nice here, just peaceful and very relaxing, just what I needed! 😀

I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! It’s our last Friday to feature a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the cool Pineapple Perfection Stamps and Dies!

I started my card by stamping the pineapple from the Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice and then using the fill-in images, stamping them in Fresh Lavender, Freshly Cut Grass, Moonstone and Ballet Slippers using my Mini MISTI. The greeting is stamped in Black Licorice and then I cut them out using the Coordinating Dies. Onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of paper from the Aloha Fill-In Patterned Paper Pack. All that was left to do was to adhere the pineapple and greeting to the card! I love that nice big pineapple and the fill-in images make it so easy to “color” it in!

I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Concord & 9th! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of talented Teammate’s projects! I thank you so much for stopping by, I’ll see you back here on Monday!! Enjoy the rest of your Friday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 114 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 114 – A Sketch!

Yes, the cleaning and purging continues! It feels so good to get rid of things that I haven’t touched in years! I have become somewhat of a minimalist where before I was a collector of many things. I guess I owe that in part to my friend Jim, so much easier to maintain the house when you don’t have to move so much to clean! LOL! In the evening I ran a few errands with Heather and then made my card for today. More cleaning and purging is on tap for this morning! 😀

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

The sketch is actually mine so I had the idea in my head for the card when I created it! I used the Concord & 9th Flower Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp with my MISTI and Ballet Slippers and Minty Fresh Ink to create my background. The panel is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My images are from the Concord & 9th Let’s Chat Photopolymer Stamp Set and they are stamped in Hippo and cut out with my Scissors. The latte heart is stamped in Doe. I adhered them to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. For the greeting I choose one of my favorites from the Concord & 9th You’re My Person Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped that in Doe and adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. It looks like the coffee is sitting on a pretty tablecloth doesn’t it?! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG and share your take on the sketch with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for coming by! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

It’s the last Monday in August?! Where did that month go?! I’m not looking forward to the Summer ending and Fall beginning at all! We’ll have to make the best of what’s left! I managed to get a lot more purging accomplished yesterday. I have come to the realization that I’m really good at playing Tetris in real life! LOL! I have stuff crammed in a ll sorts of places! Three more bags of trash and another bag of shredding are gone. I’ll continue this morning and then do a little cleaning later on. Another productive day is ahead peeps! 😀

I did pause to make a card yesterday and it’s for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I stared my card by creating a stamped background on a piece of Solar White 80lb with the stamps from the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the cupcake outlines in Black Licorice and then filled them in with Fresh Lavender and Ballet Slippers with a little Plastic Flamingo for the sprinkles. An extra one is stamped separately and cut out with the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Tag Dies. I used the largest circle from the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circles Dies to trim the stamped panel and adhered it to piece of Guava with some random sprinkles stamped in Plastic Flamingo. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is stamped in Black Licorice onto a circle of Solar White 80lb and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares along with the single cupcake. A few Pretty Pink Posh Orchid and Sparkling Clear Sequins complete the card. A fun little twist on a birthday card, don’t you think?! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge! Thank you for starting your week off here on the blog with me! Have a highly productive and fun Monday! 🙂
