Paper Craft Crew 238

Another rainy day. It was so foggy too in the morning when I headed over to the Store, again, because of our close proximity to the water I guess. Renee and I had a quiet project filled day. I had to get two cards made and work on some other things. I left the Store around 4:00 to come home and meet Jim. We worked on more of the crafty project and had some Chinese for dinner. Always a nice way to end the day with a good friend! Today, I have to get ready for tomorrow’s Wedding card and gift box class. That should be fun! 😀

Without further ado here is this week’s Sketch for the Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I started my card by cutting a piece of the Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper and adhering it to a piece of Fun Foam and tying a piece of May Arts Natural Twine around the top. Then I used E-Z Runner Ultra Strong to adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed the hello from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Tropical Sea and adhered it to the patterned paper. My Birthday is heat embossed with more White onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I flagged the bottom, adhered a strip of Candied Yam to the top and then used a little more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered it under the twine. A nice simple Birthday card! I love that hello stamp, it has a little bit of a stitched look to it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! I’ll be back at 11:00AM with a second post for you today! Be sure and come back!

Did you all survive Black Friday?! If you think about it Thanksgiving is a pretty brutal time of the year! We stuff ourselves on Thursday and then shop for 24 or more hours! I hope that all of you that did brave the stores are taking today to recuperate! It was a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday, I got to see lots of people and my friend Marianne brought me lunch and the  hung out with me for the rest of the day. My friend Sandy also stopped by! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then Taylor came by my house to make a card. Then she said that she wanted to go to Target and see what Black Friday deals they had left! It was actually not too busy and I got a few Blu-rays and some coffee! Today is Small Business Saturday so my specials continue today! Hope it’s busy at the store again! 😀

I did manage to get in a bit of crafty time at the Store and made my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge…

freshly-made-sketches-264

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and for my background I used a piece of Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper. My panel is a piece of Ballerina Pink and I used the Concord & 9th Layers of Love Die to cut out that fun heart with the floral border. Before I adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner I used the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp and some Soft Pink Ink to give it a little more interest. I also cut a piece of Gold Mirror Card using the Layers of Love Die and adhered that piece in the upper right corner. The greeting is cut from more Gold Mirror Card and two piece of Solar White 110lb with the Concord & 9th Kind Card Frame Add-On Die. I cut off the ends and used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhered them stacked. The greeting is then adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium along with a few Gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequins. I love the flowers peeking through the heart and of course that pink woodgrain is so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for visiting today! Have a supreme Saturday! 🙂

What a rainy overcast day we had here yesterday. I guess we only got the side of Hermine, better than the full force of it! I tried to get some things organized at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday and was mostly successful! It was quiet so I also got some time to make another card! Nothing makes me happier than creating! Love it! Speaking of creating I have some fun news for you today! I’m going to a Designer on a brand new blog celebrating Concord & 9th, one of my favorite companies! It’s called Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th! You can check out the rest of the extremely talented Design Team by going over to the BLOG! Our first challenge is Friday, so I will have two posts for you! Yay! After I got home last night Heather called and I went over and picked her up so we could run a few errands and then we had a glass of wine before I came back home. Today I’m hoping the some more of my orders will show up at the store and I have to get ready for the Magic of Vellum Class tomorrow!

Today I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS210 DT Sketch 9-07-2016

I could’t wait to get started on this one! I knew exactly what I was going to do! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Black 110lb over the front. The panel is a piece of Solar White 80lb. I wanted to use part of a NYC Subway Map for my strip across the middle but I didn’t have any so I went online and found a PDF of it and selected a section and printed it out. It’s adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. A little pice of Admit One Washi Tape is adhered on the right. Next I die cut a piece of Black 110lb with the Viewfinder from the Echo Park Viewfinder and Ampersand Die Set. On top of that is a piece of Solar White 110lb cut out with the slide die from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Open Book Dies Set. I adhered some Vellum to the back and then adhered it to the card with Foam Tape. My images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Kelly’s New York Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with my Copics. They are all cut out with my Scissors and adhered to the card with more Foam Tape. The I love NY is heat embossed onto a piece of Real Red and punched out with a 1/2″ Circle Punch. My greeting is stamped in Onyx Black along the bottom left. Another piece of Real Red is made into a little banner and adhered over some Hemptique Black & White Baker’s Twine that is then tied into a bow over the banner. The whole panel is then adhered to the card base with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I love the eclectic mish-mosh of elements and that Kelly’s New York Set is one of my all time favorites! I hope that you enjoyed 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 your card into the gallery! Thank you very much for visiting today! Have a wicked good Wednesday! 🙂

I saw a very funny post by a friend on Facebook yesterday, it said “I’m 100% sure that 70% of my work will not be completed today” and that was true for me! It was just one of those days where you have things to do but little motivation to do them. I think that we all need a not very productive day every so often. I’m sure that today I will wish that I had done more today but it will get done… eventually! I did help Elyse learn how to use her new Altenew Stamps yesterday. She stopped by the store with Nancy and we had a little mini lesson. Interacting with people and bringing out their creativity is by far the best part of my job! I know I say it a lot but the look on a person’s face when they do something that they didn’t think they could do is awesome! After dinner I did come home and make two cards, so the day wasn’t a total loss! We are supposed to get some rain today, we haven’t had any in a while so I guess we need it. Hopefully the long weekend will be good, the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and Scrap-A-Latte are both closed on Sunday and Monday! Two day weekend! Woo hoo! LOL!

One of my cards that I made last night is for this week’s Paper Players challenge. A nice simple sketch from Nance…

Paper Players #310

My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, the front is covered in a piece of Ballerina Pink. The patterned paper is a piece of Blazing Floral from the Echo Park Summer Party 12×12 Collection. My greeting is the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Die, I cut it from Solar White 110lb three times and adhered them together with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. It’s then coated in Versa-Mark and heat embossed twice with Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder. The rest of the greeting is from the Concord & 9th Beautiful Words Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more Copper onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I flagged the left side, adhered the beautiful to it with more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then used Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere the Vellum to the card. A sprinkling of Rose Gold, Sparkling Clear, Fresh Mint, Watermelon and Copper Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and the card is done! I love the way the greeting turned out with the dimensional beautiful and the rest heat embossed on Vellum! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for your visit today! Have a terrific Thursday! 🙂

OSAT Blog Hop – Love is in the Air

OSAT Blog Hop – Love is in the Air

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

It’s Thursday already?! Another week is just flying by! Yesterday I FaceTimed with Andrea while we worked on our projects for today’s hop. In the afternoon Taylor and Kiera brought Winston back and we watched some movie trailers on the Apple TV before I headed over to run some errands with Heather. When I arrived at Heather’s our friend Tom was there, he is working on a project with Starbucks not too far from Heather so he had stopped by on his way home. We chatted for a bit and then Heather and I headed out to BJ’s, Target and Petco. We had some dinner at Bellagio in Farmingdale, another great local Italian restaurant. I helped haul all of Heather’s goodies into the house and we laughed about silly stuff for a while and then I headed home. Another good day!

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. This month we have a timely Love is in the Air theme! I do enjoy a little Valentine! If you have arrived here from Dena’s blog welcome! She always has some great stuff! I have a card and a little home decor shaker for you today so let’s get to it!

The card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Echo Park Hello Winter 12×12 Paper that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn 4 Bar Stitched Rectangles and adhered on an angle with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The frame, Polaroid Camera and Greetings are from the Lawn Fawn #awesome Photopolymer Stamp Set and are all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used Copics to color in the camera along with the Hedgehogs that are from the Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs Photopolymer Stamp Set. The coordinating Lawn Cuts cut all of them out. The inside of the frame has some Audrey Blue Ink that I applied with Mini Ink Blending Tool and across the bottom is a piece of Cucumber Crush that is cut across the top with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders. I adhered all of the images and greeting along with a few hearts that are cut from Real Red with the Lawn Fawn Hearts Lawn Cuts to the card with Foam Tape. A little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and Glossy Accents is added to the hearts and camera for a little more dimension. I love that little camera and the Hedgehogs are just too cute!

The second item that I have for you is a little heart shaker ornament. I cut out the heart from Ivory 110lb along with some Fun Foam and Acetate with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hearts Stackables Lawn Cuts. All of them are adhered to each other with Scor-Tape. Before adhering the back side on I filled the heart with Martha Stewart Iridescent Hearts and Stars Glitter and added the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon so I could hang it up. The coffee cup (I think my all time favorite stamp!) is from the Lawn Fawn Love You a Latte Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I stamped the little red heart from the set in Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red and adhered the cup to the acetate with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder in Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips. I used a tiny piece of Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere that in place. Finally a few of the sequins from the Crate Paper Hello Love Sequin Assortment are adhered to the outside of the heart with Bling Glue Dots. I do really love that little coffee cup and the double acetate makes it so you can see thought the shaker part which I think is really neat!
