Peace Out!

Peace Out!

Happy Monday! I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend! I was nice and busy for most of mine. Saturday I spent the day with Heather and George. Heather and I ran a bunch of errands and then we had dinner and watched a movie. Yesterday Jim came over and we put up my Christmas Tree and ran a few more errands. I finished off the evening with a little binge of White Collar on Netflix. This morning I”m off to watch Daniel & Tristan! Not a bad way to start off the week! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I have a funny card to share with you! Jim had someone that was leaving his company so he wanted a card to wish them well and this is what I came up with! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the pine branches from the Sunny Studio Holiday Style Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jalapeรฑo and Noble Fir. The peace is cut from Gold Glitter Card using the Essentials by Ellen Holiday Words Dies. I adhered it and some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Confetti to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. On the inside I used the Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script Photopolymer Stamp Sets to stamp the Out! LOL! Get it… Peace Out! We thought it was pretty funny and so did the person that he gave the card to! I hope that you like today’s card! As always, thanks for starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Freshly Made Sketches 316

Freshly Made Sketches 316

A chilly good day to you! It’s definitely feeing like Winter here today. Chilly but sunny. I managed to get most of my list accomplished yesterday. Jim came by and we had a nice dinner and then watched TV. This morning I’m at his house waiting for the dishwasher repair guy to come. It’s Thursday so I’ll get to see the girls later! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you. Before we get to it I want thank Jen M for choosing me for her Prince for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE! Now for this week’s sketch…

I started my card by stamping the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background Stamp onto a piece of Solar White 110lb with Tide Pool Ink. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder using the Hero Arts Happy Happy Christmas Wood Mount Stamp. I wanted some gold around the edge of the card base so I took my Versa-Mark Pad and pressed it along the bottom and left edge. Some more Gold Embossing Powder is added and heat set. My background is then adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins are added for extra sparkle and the card is done! Love the simplicity and the gold with the teal! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Stuck on You – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Stuck on You – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello again! I’m back with my December Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! I have the distinct pleasure of sharing a sneak peek of one of the sets from the December Concord & 9th release with you today!You can also see more peeks of today’s set over on the Concord & 9th Blog!

To start my card I pulled out a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card Stock and used my Mini Ink Blending Tools to add Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon in a gradient starting with the lightest at the top and getting darker as I got to the bottom. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Stuck on You Dies to cut out a piece of Garden Green for my cactus and Cajun Craze for the pot. From the Concord & 9th Stuck on You Photopolymer Stamp Set I stamped the pot in Onyx Black. Along the bottom of the card I stamped the x pattern in Onyx Black along with the greeting in the upper left corner. The pot has tabs on the sides so I added some Scor-Tape to them and a piece of 3M Foam Tape in the middle. My cactus is adhered with E-Z Runner and the pot over the the cactus. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins for a little sparkle and the card is done! I love the way that dies cut in the needles on the cactus and the pot has that nice dimension to it!

I hope that you like my card for the December Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog!ย Donโ€™t forget that you can follow us onย Instagramย andย Facebook!

SIP Challenge 128 – Let it Snow!

SIP Challenge 128 – Let it Snow!

What a nice day I had yesterday with Daniel and Tristan! They were both really good and had a lot of fun playing with Cali. She was a little nervous at first but warmed up to them after a while. It was also nice to see my Brother, we don’t get to see each other much anymore. I was home by 4:00 and got a lot of crafting done last night! This one of two posts for today! Bonus Tuesday! ๐Ÿ˜€

This morning’s post is for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

Now we all know that I’m not a big fan of snow, except on a card! I started with a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and covered the front with a piece of Blue Jay. My snowflakes are cut from White Glitter Paper using snowflake dies from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered them to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The greeting is cut from a piece of Solar White 110lb three times with the Simon Says Stamp Merry & Bright Dies and adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the greeting and used my White Signo Gel Pen to add some more “snow”. I love the sparkly snowflakes against the blue background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! There is plenty more inspiration over on the BLOG so go over and check it out. We hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thanks for coming by this morning! Be sure to come back at 11:00 for a sneak peek at Concord & 9th’s December release! Until then have a great Tuesday morning! ๐Ÿ™‚

Simple Branch Sympathy

Simple Branch Sympathy

Ahh… another weekend flew by! ย Mine was nice and busy. Saturday Jim and I decorated the outside of his house and painted the inside of the kitchen cabinets. Yesterday I went and picked up Heather and George from the airport and then Heather and I ran a few errands and we had dinner together. This morning I’m out at my Brother’s watching the kiddies. I’ll be doing this on Monday’s for the next six months. They are so good, so far! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€

I have a simple one layer card to share with you today. Someone asked me if I had any sympathy cards the other day, I realized that I didn’t so I wanted to come up with nice easy one that was quick to put together. To make the card I used the Concord & 9th Beautiful Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set. The brach is stamped in Doe and the flowers in Moonstone. Mt greeting is also stamped in Doe. For the flower centers I added Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins. Quick and easy to make and super simple to mass produce too! I hope that you like today’s quick card! Thanks for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Global Design Project 115

Global Design Project 115

Ah yes, Friday, the end of what has been a pretty long week. I managed to get through a few projects yesterday, not as many as I wanted to but I’ll see what I can get done today. I went over to Jim’s last night for dinner and to meet up with our friend Laura to start planning for next year’s fundraising event. Cali met Jim’s dogs and they were ok together, it will be a while before they are best buddies. Cali has a little bit of a Napoleon complex, small dog syndrome as I like to call it! She needs to be in charge! The more time she spends with other dogs the better she will get. I’m off to get a haircut this morning and then catch up with my friend Greg. ๐Ÿ˜€

I was looking around for a challenge yesterday and remembered the Global Design Project, haven’t done that one in a while and they have a nice simple one this week…

No stamps on today’s card, just some cool die cuts! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a piece of paper from the My Mind’s Eye Necessities Wood 6×6 Paper Pad. From a piece of Red Glimmer Paper I cut out the poinsettia from the Essentials by Ellen Poinsettia and Pine Dies and the JOY from the Essential by Ellen Holiday Words Dies. The pine branches are cut from some Garden Green and adhered with E-Z Runner. I left the negatives in the poinsettia and after I adhered it to the card with 3M Foam Tape I added Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to the center. The JOY is also adhered with 3M Foam Tape and the card is done! I love the fun sparkly pop of red against the dark woodgrain background, makes for a fun holiday card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Global Design Project Christmas Joy challenge! Thanks for finishing out your week with me! Have a fantastic Friday and an awesome weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

Freshly Made Sketches 315

Freshly Made Sketches 315

A good morning to you all! I managed to get a lot of the things on my list done yesterday, always a good feeling. Cali has been adjusting really well and has been good. I took her over to Heather’s last night and she played with Boris chasing him around the house. I pretty sure that Boris thinks he’s a dog and it was even funnier because he’s bigger than Cali! Here is what most of Cali’s day looks like, she likes to mess up the couch and then take long naps!

Today I’m starting the big card organization project, that is going to take a looooong time! LOL! But will be worth it to have everything in places that make it easier for me to find! ๐Ÿ˜€

I managed to squeeze in a card yesterday and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

What a nice simple sketch! To start my card I used a new tool that I recently acquired, the We R Memory Keepers Fram Punch Board. I created my frame out of a piece of Black 110lb Card Stock. All of the images and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Beautiful Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set. I cut a piece of Solar White 80lb to fit behind the frame and stamped the branch in Doe and the leaves in Freshly Cut Grass and Jalapeรฑo. The greeting is stamped in Black Licorice. I added the frame to a piece of Acetate and then put 3M Foam Tape to create my well for the Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins. The stamped piece is adhered to the framed piece to create my shaker. Next I positioned the shaker on a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and stamped a few more leaves. The shaker is then adhered to the card. I really do love that Beautiful Branches Set, it’s definitely becoming a favorite! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for coming by! Have an amazing Thursday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Paper Craft Crew 270

Paper Craft Crew 270

Happy Wednesday peeps! I had a nice visit with my friend Ella in Manhattan yesterday. It was a quick one, the city is very busy now through the end of the year with everyone coming in to see the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center and the windows in a ll of the stores. A little too crowded for me to go on my usual little walks! Taylor was off so she took Cali to her house and then came back to my house and waited for me to get home so she wouldn’t be alone. Jim came by after work and we ran a few errands and then gave Cali a bath to get all of the shelter off of her. She is still being really good, let’s hope that she stays that way! This morning I have a bunch of errands to run and some things to get done on the computer. Another busy day! ๐Ÿ˜€

Middle of the week and I have my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge to share…

It looks like a really complicated sketch but I took it down to a one layer card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I placed it in my Mini MISTI, I find myself using the MISTI more and more for stamping all the time, it’s nice to have the option of double stamping if necessary! All of the images and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Bits & Pieces Photopolymer Stamp Set. The lines are stamped in Black Licorice, the flowers in Peachy Keen and the leaves in Freshly Cut Grass. I also used Black Licorice for the greeting and then added some Peach Iridescent and Lime Iridescent Sequins from my stash to give the card a little sparkle! I have said it before, I love a nice simple single layer card and these would be great to make multiples of with your MISTI! 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 share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks for visiting with me! Have a wonderful Wednesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

SIP Challenge 127 – All Wrapped Up!

SIP Challenge 127 – All Wrapped Up!

Hello friends! I had a nice day with my little Cali yesterday. She has been so good, almost too good to be true. I took her over to Andrew’s Parent’s house to see his Mum and Dad. Then Andrew came over by me for a bit, he loves Cali! LOL! She is such a mush and goes to anyone. Taylor stopped by with her friend Jess and she was quite fond of the little miss too! I’m going to go into Manhattan today and Taylor is going to watch her for a little bit for me. I feel so bad that she will be home alone for a few hours but what can you do?! I think I’ll get a little carrier for her so that I can take her on city trips with me! ๐Ÿ˜€

It Tuesday and time for new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

I went with some tags, surprise! LOL! To create them I used the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Tag Dies to cut out three tags from Desert Storm 80lb. For my images I used the Concord & 9th Beautiful Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set. The branches are stamped in Doe and the leaves in Yeti Pigment Ink. Because I’m impatient I used my Heat Tool to speed up the white ink drying. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set in Noble Fir over the images on the tags. In the top of the tags I punched a hole and tied some Natural Twine through. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and they are complete! I do love to make tags, these will go nicely with a prezzie wrapped in kraft paper! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp , Ink, Paper All Wrapped Up Challenge! We hope that you will stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of Team’s projects and that you will share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks for coming by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you are all ready for your company today and that your day will be filled with family and friends! I had a very busy day yesterday jam packed with errands, I went to Lowe’s, Home Depot, IKEA, Target and the Dollar Store! Taylor was along for some company which was nice! Last night I went over to see Brian and Kim with Heather and then Andrew stopped by for a bit. I’ll be heading out to my Brother’s in a little while, that will be fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

I started the card by using the Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies to cut out a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. The topper is cut from a piece of Silver Glitter Card. They are adhered to a piece of Classic Cherry that is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on a piece of 65lb Vellum. I added three Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins and then hid some Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape behind them and adhered it to the card. Pretty simple but still a fun card!
