Oh, Hello Squared – Concord & 9th May Guest Designer

Oh, Hello Squared – Concord & 9th May Guest Designer

Hello again! In this post I get to tell you that I have the privilege of being one of the Guest Designer’s for Concord & 9th for the May Release! You all know that I love their innovative and fun products! It also doesn’t hurt that Angie, Greg and Amy are some of the nicest people that I have had the pleasure of doing business with! So, for next four Fridays I will be sharing products from the new release with you! Each week Jeanette, Vera and myself will be using the same products so you can see how versatile they are! This week we are showing you the new Oh, Hello Turnabout Stamp!

To start my project I followed the instructions in THIS VIDEO to get my stamp ready. I then put it in to my MISTI along with a piece of Solar White 80lb. To ink it I used Lawn Fawn Merman, Fresh Lavender and Narwhal Ink for the first three turns. I made sure that it was ready for some heat embossing by using my Heat Tool to completely dry it. I placed the paper back into the MISTI and added my Versa-Mark. Next I sprinkled on Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set it. For the first card I trimmed a piece of the stamped background to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I wrapped a piece of 48lb Vellum around the sides and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The hello is cut three times from more Solar White 110lb using the Concord & 9th Say Hello Dies. I adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then heat embossed it with more White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. The OH is from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set and that is heat embossed onto a piece of Basic Gray. I used a little more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere the hello and 3M Foam Tape to adhere the OH.

I had a strip of the background left over so I thought why not make a second card! For this one I stamped the hi there, also from the Oh, Hello Turnabout Stamp, in Merman and Fresh Lavender onto another card base of Solar White 110lb down the right side. The leftover piece of the background is adhered to a piece of Coastal Cabana and then adhered down the left side of the card! Super simple and a nice quick fun card!

I LOVE that Oh, Hello Turnabout Stamp! See what I mean by innovative fun products?! How cool is it that you can make your own background paper in any color that you want?! I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer projects for the Concord & 9th Blog! Click here to go to the Concord & 9th post and see what the other Guest Designers have done!

OSAT May Blog Hop – Clean & Simple!

OSAT May Blog Hop – Clean & Simple!

Happy Thursday to you all! I had another relatively productive day yesterday. I went to the Store in the morning and visited with Renee for a bit. After that I went to my Parent’s to see little Daniel and Tristan. They were over so that Erika could study for her Chemistry final. After that back to my house to work on some projects, some dinner with my Mum and Dad and then Taylor came by and we watched a few episodes of Blindspot, I’m happy to report that I’m all caught up! I have a bunch of projects to get finished and who know what else?!

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the clever Lori Mueller’s blog, welcome! This month we have a Clean & Simple theme! I love a nice clean, simple card especially lately! And when you can use just one set and some ink even better!

All of the four cards use a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp all of my images and greetings in Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers, Fresh Lavender, Peachy Keen, Minty Fresh, Sunflower, Juice Box, Carrot, Sugarplum, Jalapeño and Black Licorice. The greetings are stamped using my Mini MISTI and the rest of the images with blocks. That’s it! Some nice quick, clean, crisp and simple cards! I do love a stamp set from Concord & 9th, they are one of my favorite companies, they have fun and innovative products that make projects great!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Florals!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Florals!

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 May! This time we ask you to create a a card with some florals on it!

My card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th All About You Dies to cut out the YOU from the card front. That lovely gold die cut at the top is cut from Gold Mirror Card using the Concord & 9th Detailed Blossoms Die. The two flowers are from the Concord & 9th Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Hero Arts Light to Dark Peach Ombre Ink. I cut the out with the Coordinating Dies. Next it used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some more of the Ombre Ink to a piece of Solar White 110lb and cut out the YOU and for from that. The YOU is then cut out from some more Gold Mirror Card. I closed the card and used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere all of the die cuts. I then stamped the Happy Birthday on the inside and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to the front to finish the card. I LOVE That Detailed Blossoms Die, so intricate and delicate looking! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Single Layer 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!

Hello Lovely Butterfly – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hello Lovely Butterfly – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hello and welcome to post number two for today! Once a month I get to do a solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog and share a fun project with you using some goodies from one of my favorite companies! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. While you’re there check out all of the other fabulous cards that the rest of the Team has created as we get ready for our next challenge coming up on May 9th! Today I’m sharing another single layer card!

For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To create my mask I stamped the butterfly from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Narwhal in and then stamped it again onto a Post-it Note. The one on the Post-it is cut out with my Scissors and placed over the one stamped onto the card. Next I stamped the floral cluster from the Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set Again in Narwhal along with the greeting. To color the images in I used Prismacolor Pencils. I went a little darker on the butterfly to make it stand out a bit more. It needed just a little something so I added some random dots with a Gold Sign Gel Pen. These really are two of my favorite sets from Concord & 9th and I love the way the butterfly turned out!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and that you will give masking a try! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on May 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one!

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 286

Happy Friday my friends! Yesterday was my last day at the Store for a while. I need to regroup and take a little time to do some other things that I have been putting off. The on-line Store will stay open and I hope to get some more products up there soon. I want to thank all of you for your continued support and for stopping by here everyday to see what I have been doing. This blog started off as a way for me to share my hobby and has grown into so much more and I really can’t express how much it means to me. So many of you take the time to leave a comment everyday and I have even had the pleasure of meeting some of you in person. Even the ones that I have never met I feel like I know personally. You all share so much with me and each other! I look forward to making my card and typing my post everyday and that will not change. As a thank you I’m going to have a little sale over the weekend just for you guys, more on that tomorrow! I finished off my day yesterday with a visit with my buddy Daniel and sweet Tristan. After that it was over to Jim’s for dinner with his Mom and daughter including a little Fro-Yo after and some TV. Today I have a lot of planning and organizing to do, fun Friday! LOL! 😀

I have two posts for you today. There will be another one at 11:00am! This one is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

A super simple card! I stamped the candles from the Concord & 9th Eat Cake & Celebrate Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. The Coordinating Die cut them out. A piece of Black is cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. I adhered the candles to the circle with 3D Foam Squares. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the greeting from the same set stamped again in Memento Tuxedo Black. All that was left to do was to adhere the circle to the card with more 3D Foam Squares! I do love a nice simple Birthday card, especially one that would work for anyone! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Come back at 11:00am to my Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Design Team! In the mean time enjoy your Friday morning! 🙂

Spring Lace Leaf

Spring Lace Leaf

Another absolutely gorgeous day here, after the rain ended in the morning. I ran with Jim to get a haircut and then headed over to the Store. It wasn’t a crop, Angie had a book class. I got to see some of my favorite peeps and then around 2:30 Andrew stopped by! Good to have a visit with him! Some dinner with the ‘Rent’s when I got home, a little ride in the car, too nice to stay inside, and then some TV. Today is supposed to be a little cooler so I’ll get some things done around the house. 😀

I have a simple card to share with you today using one of my favorite sets! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of Black Glitter Tape across the top. Next up I heat embossed the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I wanted it to have a little bit of a Spring feel so I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Lime Green Ink to the leaf. I added it to the front and back, using my Heat Tool to dry the layers. A piece of May Arts Natural Twine is tied into a bow at the base of the leaf and then the leaf is adhered to the card with a few Mini Glue Dots. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaf Dies, I cut it once from Black Glitter Card Stock and twice from Black. Some Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive adheres the die cuts to each other and to the card. I still love that stamp set and am glad that I can use it year round! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks for spending some of your Sunday with me! Have a sensational day! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 285

Happy weekend! I had a nice day in Manhattan yesterday! I spend some time with my friend Mary in he morning and then went to meet Kim for lunch. She’s working in our old building at 345 Park Avenue. We stopped at Chop’t and got lunch and went to eat in this little park with a waterfall…

It was a beautiful day as you can see from the picture! I got back out on the Island around 3:00 and came home for a bit. Jim came over around 7:00 and we went for a nice long walk on the Bethpage Bike Trail before heading to the diner for dinner. A little TV when we got back to my house before saying good night. Today I’ll be at the Store and there is a Crop, fun! 😀

My card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I went with a nice simple card. The background is a piece of Kraft that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Background Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. I added some Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set it. The background is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My butterfly is cut from Black with the Concord & 9th Floral & Flutter Dies. The greeting is cut from more Black three times using the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Dies. They are adhered to each other and to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. A little scattering of Pewter Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and the card is done! I love that butterfly and the subtle Tree Ring on the Kraft! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Floral Happy On!

Floral Happy On!

Another rainy overcast day but that didn’t matter because of the crop inside the Store! I had fun as I always do! Got to spend some time with my friend Evelyn, we chatted about her upcoming trip to London and Europe. After work I came home and had some dinner. Then I decided that it was time to do some cleaning so I tackled the closet in the dining room and threw out a nice big black garbage bag of crap! Feels good to purge! Today I’m off and I don’t have a lot planned so we’ll see where the day takes me! 😀

I have yet another stamped background card to share with you today! I used the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp my background in Moonstone and Minty Fresh Ink onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My sentiment is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. To adhered it to the card I used Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape and hid teeny tiny pieces behind the embossing. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is finished! As you can see I’m really enjoying the stamped backgrounds! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for stopping by and have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Perfect Pineapple

Perfect Pineapple

It’s the weekend peeps! What’s going on for you? There is a crop today at the Store so that will be fun! Yesterday’s Card Class was great, everyone enjoyed the cards! Last night was quiet but I did manage to go over to Sue’s and get some Etsy stuff done. Not much else to report which can be a good thing! 😀

Today I have a pretty simple stamped background card to share with you. I started by stamping the images from the Concord & 9th Pop Art Pineapple Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sunflower, Doe, Jalapeño and Carrot Ink onto piece of Solar White 80lb. I adhered that to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, the front is covered in a piece of Black. Another piece of Black is die cut with the Concord & 9th Best Banners Dies three times. I adhered them to each other and to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. All that was left to do was stamp the greeting from the Concord & 9th Best Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set In Black Licorice and the card is done! Love the nice bright bold background with the die cut! I hope that you like today’s card and I thank you for stopping by to visit with me today! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 95 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 95 – A Sketch!

Another Monday behind us! It was overcast but warm here yesterday, I’ll take that! The Store was busy, it was Home Decor day and everyone came in to paint their wood pieces. I worked on some cards for upcoming classes and got some more of my tax stuff together which is also what I did last night! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! I had dinner when I got home and was going to do a little cleaning but the taxes had to come first. I also had to run over to my friend Sue’s house for a bit to pick up some things and stopped at Target on the way back to get Winston some food. I like Tuesday’s because this evening I get to work on the crafty project with my friend! 😀

Today it’s time for a new challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper

I started my card by using the Concord & 9th Floral Fill-In Patterned Paper and the Coordinating Stencils to add Merman Ink to the paper with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I then used the second stencil to add Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I stamped the flower from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merman heat embossed the second layer in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder to match the paper. It’s cut out with my Scissors and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is from the Concord & 9th Happy Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a strip of Solar White 80lb. Some more 3D Foam Squares adhered it to the card right under the stamped flower and the card is done! I do love that Fill-In Paper, such a very clever idea!! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! We have some great inspiration from the rest of the Team over on the BLOG and we can’t wait to see your card in the gallery! Thank you for coming by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
