Freshly Made Sketches 215

Ahh yes… Friday is still my favorite day of the week! I had a very nice day yesterday! I got some craftiness in in the morning and then went to have lunch with Heather. I stopped at the deli to pick up sandwiches and bumped into Brian! After lunch I came back home and stopped at my parent’s to see Daniel for a bit. Later on Heather came by and we ran up to BJ’s to get some goodies for Thirsty Thursday! She dropped me off and I followed her back to her house. I love Thirsty Thursday, we always have a great time and a really good laugh! By the time I got back home it was 12:00 and I was ready for bed! This morning I’m off to get a haircut and then I have some serious crafty things to get done!

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

Freshly Made Sketches 215

A banner! I do love a banner! LOL! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. Across the top is a piece of paper from the Heidi Swapp Hello Today 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 Paper Pad, a strip of Blushing Bride and a thin strip of Gold Glimmer Paper. They are adhered to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My banner is a piece of Crumb Cake cut out with the Banners Framelits. I used the Concord & 9th Being Classy Dies cut out the kind and then stamped the word from the Being Classy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy in the negative part. The banner is the adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I die cut the Fun Foam with the kind die to make it sturdier. The so is also from the same set and is stamped again in Night of Navy on the banner. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins finish the card! I love the font in the Being Classy Stamp Set and the coordinating dies are awesome! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you so much for visiting and enjoy your Friday! ­čÖé

Paper Players 273 & New Goodies!

Another rainy day means another crafty day! I managed to get a few projects finished in the morning and then I took a ride over to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee for a little bit. When I got back home there were some goodies waiting in the mailbox for me! I love new stamps and I especially love it when they are from a new company! I used some of the new stuff on today’s card and little project! After dinner I went over to see Heather for a bit, she had a procedure done on her back and I wanted to keep her company for a little while. She also needed her wreath fixed so I brought over the hot glue gun and took card of that! Upon arriving back at my house I sat down and played for a while. I have been crafting later and later, the creativity either comes early in the morning or late at night lately. I’ll take creativity whenever I can get it!

My card and project that I have for you today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #273

Ahh… a Tic-Tac-Toe board from Sandy! You know how I can’t resist trying to cover the entire board, let’s see if I managed to! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background consists of a piece of Night of Navy and a piece of paper from a 6×6 pad that I picked up while I was in London. The pad is called Silent Night and it’s from First Edition by TrimCraft. A piece of Gold 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon is adhered around the back and then the panel is adhered to the card with some Easy Runner Grand Adhesive. The HAPPY is from the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Smile Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Basic Gray and adhered over the ribbon with Foam Tape. My Christmas is cut out from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet with the Simon Says Stamp Happy Winter and Christmas Dies. I adhered it to a piece of Solar White 110lb cut out with the same die and then to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. The snowflakes are from a new die set from Concord & 9th called Take a Bough. They are cut from American Crafts Glitter Paper and also adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. A few Gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequins are adhered in the middles of the snowflakes and finish off the card. Now that super cute Christmas Tree is also created with the Take a Bough Dies and is cut from Garden Green. After the branches are all assembled (there is a great video HERE┬áshowing you how to do that!) I slid┬áthem onto a bamboo skewer that I colored with Ranger Walnut Stain Distress Ink. My star is cut from a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper twice and adhered back to back on the top of the skewer. Around the tree is a strand of the Concord & 9th 3MM Red Sequin Strand, it’s looks just like garland! I LOVE that little tree and the fact that you can also use the dies to make snowflakes is just cool! Get it… snowflakes… cool! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card and tree for this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! Let’s See Snowflake, yup, Patterned Paper, yup, White, yup, Blue, yup, Sparkle and Shine, yup, Embossing, yup, Ribbon, yes, Tree, check and Die Cuts, definitely! I covered all nine boxes! WEE! Thank you so much for coming by today! I wish you all a satisfying Thursday! ­čÖé
