Paper Players 344

Just a gorgeous day here yesterday! I charged up the MacBook and sat outside on the patio for most of the day. It was warm with a nice breeze, perfect! Today is supposed to be a bit warmer and I’m fine with that! I’ll be sitting outside again! I went over to have dinner with Heather and George last night and it was delicious! The espresso martini was pretty good too! We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely evening! Today I have some orders to get out, yay! 😀

I ventured into the Stampin’ Galley yesterday and one of the cards that I made is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I did another single layer card! Up in the left corner I stamped some flowers and leaves from the Concord & 9th Wildflower Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I masked off the large flower and stamped the rest around it. To color them in I used my Copics and then used the C01 Marker to put a light gray outline around the cluster. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th All About You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using my Mini MISTI so I could double stamp it to make it nice and bold. I added just a few Enamel Dots and the card is done! I love that greeting and the fun bright colors of the flowers! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

Well, it rained all day yesterday just as they promised so I had myself a crafty day! I also got a few movies in too. It’s Mother’s Day today so Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mom’s out there! I hope that you will be spending the day with your loved ones! I’ll be seeing my Mum and maybe the kiddies too!

I had this card in my head for a while and it finally came together yesterday! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I spattered the front in Heidi Swapp Gold, Bronzer, Navy and Teal Color Shine and set it aside to dry. My oyster is from the Hero Arts May My Monthly Hero Kit, I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I cut the oyster out with the Coordinating Frame Cut and the greeting with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. The oyster is adhered to the Vellum and to the card with 3M Foam Tape. To give it a little more sparkle I added some Sequins from the Little Things by Lucy Nautical, Platinum and Brushed Gold Mixes and a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the pearl. A nice simple card with a really neat greeting! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you very much for spending some of your day with me! Have a fantastic Sunday! 🙂

Fab Friday 112

Fab Friday 112

A very happy Friday to you! I had another productive day yesterday. I did some cleaning, some laundry and played with Tristan and Daniel. We all had dinner together at my Parent’s. I came home for a bit and then went over to meet Heather and Stephanie at Brian & Kim’s for Thirsty Thursday. So good to see the peeps! This morning I’m going with Heather to drop off her car for inspection and then we are going to have some breakfast. A fun way to start the day!

This is one of two posts from me today! I’ll have another post shortly with a fun announcement!

It’s a Fab Friday this week and we have some colors to inspire you…

I got my May My Monthly Hero Kit the other day and these colors seemed to work perfectly with it! To start I used the Stencil in the Kit and some Blueprint Sketch and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink along with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add color to a piece of Solar White 80ob. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The mermaid is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics, I cut her out with the Coordinating Die along with some coral and seaweed from a piece of Calypso Coral. The greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. All of the die cuts are adhered to the circle and the circle is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Blue Lagoon and Amethyst Sequins and some Hero Arts Clear Gems finish the card! I do love that stenciled background, so easy and such a nice way to showcase the mermaid! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! We hope that you will visit the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to come back in a little bit for my second post for today! I’m pretty excited about it! Enjoy your Friday morning! 🙂

SIP Challenge 98 – Kid’s Birthday!

SIP Challenge 98 – Kid’s Birthday!

Hey all! Hope your week is off to a stellar start! I had a busy morning, I ran over to the Store to see Renee for a bit, came back home and packed up some orders, went to the Post Office and then watched some more of Blindspot! Almost through the second season! This morning I have some cleaning up to do and then I’m going to have a little lunch with Jim. 😀

I’ll have two posts for you today! This one is for the new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

Kid’s Birthday cards are always easier to make with a little Lawn Fawn! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Moonstone Blue that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts. I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders Lawn Cuts to cut out three piece of Solar White 80lb and adhered them to the card. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used my Copics to color them in and then cut them out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. All that was left to do was to add some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to give the card a little magical sparkle! A fun simple card to give to your favorite little prince or princess! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

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! 🙂

I managed to have a nice productive day at the Store, it’s nice to have a day to myself but I do miss Renee. I spoke to her last night and she got all of her stuff done for the baby shower that she needed to! My Parent’s came by the Store with Daniel for a bit, that was a nice surprise! I also got to see him when I got home. I had some left over Greek food for dinner and then spoke to Andrew for a bit. Some TV and that was the day for me. Today I have some peeps coming in to make the step card and then I’m off to a friends for dinner tonight! 😀

I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge to share with you today…

I had gotten one of the add-ons from the April My Monthly Hero Kit release and hadn’t inked it up yet so I decided to use it on today’s card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of dark peach down the center. On my panel I stamped the image and greeting from the Hero Arts Dress Up Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the girl in with Copics. The dress is a piece of Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper that I cut with the dress die in the set. I folded it and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins complete the card! It’s a nice fun set and the pleated dress is pretty cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks you for visiting with me today! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

And it rained all day yesterday just like they said it would. If they were right about that then today will be more of the same. I had a busy day at the Store which is not a bad way to spend said rainy day! Jim came over when I got home and we worked on some more of the crafty project, got some Greek food for dinner and then just relaxed and watched TV. Today I’m flying solo at the Store, Renee is off to take care of some baby shower duties! 😀

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

Are you sick of the stamped backgrounds yet?! I’m still loving them! My card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the images from the Hero Arts Everything Smiles Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black randomly onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and colored them in with my copics. The panel is then trimmed to 3″ x 3″ and adhered to a piece of Tropical Sea and that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I die cut the speech bubble from the same set from a piece of Wild Honey and adhered that to the card with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The HI is cut from Black using the Hero Arts Alphabet Uppercase Dies. The rest of the greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a strip of Chinese Red. That is adhered over the speech bubble with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. I decided that the background needed a little something more so I added some dots with my Signo Gold Gel Pen and just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins finish the card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG to check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thanks so much for your visit today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Another nice day here on Long Island. We are getting ready to have like seven days of rain in a row, that should be fun! The Store was quite yesterday, Renee was off , it was her boyfriend John’s birthday. I finished getting my tax stuff together and thanks to Melissa they were filed on time! I met Jim at my house after work and we ran to Michaels to get a few supplies to continue working on our crafty project, He made dinner and we watched a little TV before calling it a night. I’ll get ready for card class today, like to have everything done well ahead of time! 😀

I’m having a little sale over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Site. Need to make some room for some new goodies! If there are any Hero products that you have had your eye on now’s the time to get them! There is 30% off all in-stock Hero! Click HERE to be taken to the collection and used discount code HEROFB30 when you check out!

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

I went with some bright colors for this one! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Lemon Lime. I used the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Cosmic Grape and Lollipop 12×12 Paper. The patterned paper is cut and adhered to the the front bottom and back, on a slight angle. A piece of Pink Baker’s Twine is tied in a bow to hide the seam. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Sewn with Love Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the images and the second half to the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black. The images are colored in with Copics and the Sew is stamped in Bubblegum. I used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out and adhered them to a piece of Ballerina Pink that I cut out with the Zig Zag Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. The circle is adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. After I finished the card I decided that the purple was a little too plain so I stamped some more images from the set in Sugarplum, then it was done! I hope that you like 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!

SIP Challenge 94 – Tic-Tac-Toe from LeAnne!

SIP Challenge 94 – Tic-Tac-Toe from LeAnne!

The weather men were right for a change, it turned out to be a very nice sunny day here! I think Spring may have finally come! We had a busy day at the Store with Renee, Angie and I all working on projects. I had a little dinner with the folks when I got home and then had a nice relaxing evening. I did start watching 13 Reason Why on Netflix, it’s a pretty good show and I think that it should be required for all teenagers to see. Maybe we would all be a little nicer to each other. It’s sad but sometimes we need to see that the way we treat other people can have lasting repercussions. Today will be spent organizing paperwork, I need to get my tax stuff together! 😀

It’s time now for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge and we have a fun Tic-Tac-Toe Board from LeAnne…

To start my card I stamped the shirt, pants and flowers from the April My Monthly Hero Kit in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored them in with my Copics and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. I also stamped the head and feet onto a Post-it note and cut them out with my Scissors. The Hero Arts Paper Layering Eiffel Tower Die is cut from Kraft. I placed the images and Eiffel Tower onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to decided where I needed to stamp the head and feet for the girl. Once they were stamped I removed all of the pieces and added the masks over the stamped images on the card. Using my Mini Ink Blending Tool I added Hero Arts Soft Pool and Green Hills Ink, a piece of Post-it Tape helps give me the nice crisp line between the colors. Next I removed the masks and adhered the pants, shirt and flowers too the card. The Eiffel Tower was adhered after I added the lace to the top of the card with Multi-Matte Medium. All that was left to do was to add the greeting, also from the April My Monthly Hero Kit and also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I do really like the images in the kit, they sort of remind me of vintage Barbie! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from LeAnne! We hope to see your creation in the gallery so stop by the BLOG for some more inspiration from the rest of the Team! Thank you for visiting with me today! Have an amazing Tuesday! 🙂

After another dreary start to the day the sun finally came out in the afternoon and it turned out to be quite pleasant! Our friend Evelyn stopped by the Store and I helped her make a wedding card using some dies and a few stamps. When I got home I picked up Winston from my Parent’s and then my friend Danielle came by. We went to Smashburger for dinner and then did a little shopping before coming back to my house to hang out and chat. Today I have my Wedding Card and Gift Box Class and then tonight is Thirsty Thursday! 😀

I have a nice quick quirky Easter card to share with you for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

To create my background I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Soft Pool and Cup O Joe Ink to a panel of Solar White 80lb using a piece of Post-it tape so I got a nice crisp line between the colors. Next up I die cut the fence using one of the dies from the March My Monthly Hero Kit from another piece of Solar White 80lb and adhered that to the background. My rabbit and lettuce are also from the March My Monthly Hero Kit and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. The background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the images with 3D Foam Squares. I didn’t have a happy Easter greeting from Hero so I used the Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black. Like I said a nice quick card, everyone always uses carrots so I decided to go with lettuce instead! LOL! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! I appreciate you stopping by and wish you a fun Thursday! 🙂
