Paper Craft Crew 327 – Sketch!

Paper Craft Crew 327 – Sketch!

Two days in a row?! That hasn’t happened in a long time! LOL! I was FaceTiming with Andrea on Monday and she sent me this week’s sketch to nudge me to make a card. It does feel good to be creating again. The Mojo comes in spurts but at least it’s coming. I’m going to try and get in the Stampin’ Galley again today! Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

Today’s card is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge…

I got to play with some more new goodies from this month’s Concord & 9th release! They are definitely one of my favorite companies! I love the innovative products they come up with! I used the Concord & 9th Floral Print Silhouettes Stamps and Dies along with a few other oldies but goodies for my card. To start I stamped the circle of flowers from the Concord & 9th Floral Print Silhouette Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice, Jalapeรฑo and Sunflower Ink with my Mini MISTI. To cut it out I used the circle die from the Concord & 9th Birthday Basics Dies. Next, I cut out a piece of Sunflower Card Stock with the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies. My banner is from the Concord & 9th Best Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped two of them in Jalapeรฑo and cut them out with my Scissors. A piece of Fun Foam cut out with another of the Circle Infinity Dies is added to the back of the floral circle and adhered to the Sunflower circle with the banners sandwiched in between. The deer is cut from a piece of Solar White 80lb for the head and some Super Gold Curious Metallic for the antlers. I added the circles to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and stamped my greeting in Black Licorice. The deer is added with 3M Foam Tape. For a little sparkle I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to the flower centers and applied a heavy coat of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the deer head. I love that floral circle and actually wish that it was big enough to cover a card front! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge!

SIP Challenge 186 – Vellum!

SIP Challenge 186 – Vellum!

Hey there! I hope that your week is off to a good start! I had a nice weekend, got some stuff done, not as much as I wanted to but isn’t that always the case! We are supposed to be getting snow today, I don’t want any of that thanks! LOL! I guess we have been lucky so far and it was bound to run out eventually. Here’s to hoping that it’s only an inch or two. ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s time once again for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog. This week are focusing on using vellum…

I love vellum! There are so many different ways to add it to your projects! I choose a very subtle way today. The other day I posted on Instagram my first Alcohol Ink background and I used that to make my card. My card was inspired by Amy from Prairie Paper & Ink. The background uses Amethyst and Flamingo Alcohol Ink on Yupo Paper with some Alcohol Blending Solution. I used a straw to blow it around and then waited for it to dry a bit before adding some Deco Foil in Gold. To cut it out I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Dies, also cutting out a piece of Gold Vellum. That is added, offset, to the back of the colored heart with Glue Tube. My LOVE is cut from Gold Mirror Card using the Concord & 9th Love You So Dies. That is adhered to the heart with more Glue Tube. I added the heart to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Confetti pieces and the card is done. I kept it simple as to not take away from the cool alcohol ink heart! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

SIP Challenge 185 – CAS Valentine!

SIP Challenge 185 – CAS Valentine!

Hello! I’m late today! LOL! We had some issues getting things together over on the challenge blog so I waited until that post was up to post mine. I had a lovely day with the kiddos. Tristan was in a really good mood which is always nice! Tomorrow I’ll be in the city at The Ink Pad for a while in the afternoon. I’m looking forward to it! If you’re nearby come in and say hi! ๐Ÿ˜€

Better late than never! Here is this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I used the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies to create my card. The background is stamped with the stacked hearts three times using my MISTI and some Ballet Slippers Ink. I stamped the greeting on top of them with Black Licorice Ink. My little xo heart is stamped in Wild Rose Ink and cut out with the die. I added it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. For a little bling I scattered some hearts from a Little Things by Lucy Mix and a little Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen on the xo heart. Nice and quick and simple!

SIP Challenge 183 – All My Love!

SIP Challenge 183 – All My Love!

Hello my friends! It was incredibly cold here yesterday! Like in the minuses with the 40 MPH winds that we had. Thankfully we didn’t get any of the snow on Saturday but boy that cold was nasty. I had to put the spare tire back in the car where it belongs, only took a month to do that, and picked the coldest day so far to do so, and I thought my ears fell off! LOL! It’s to be a little better today but not nice and in the 40’s like we have been having. I’m done with Winter, anyone else?! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

To start my card I stamped the Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp using my MISIT in Minty Fresh Ink once onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My tag is cut from Desert Storm 80lb using the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Dies. The greeting is from the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Amalgam Ink. I cut the the luggage tag part from Grey 110lb and slipped it thought the hole in the top of the tag. The heart is from the same set and is cut from Real Red Glitter Card. The elements behind the heart are from the Concord & 9th Everyday Bouquet Die Set that is exclusively included in the Concord & 9th Everyday Bouquet Turnabout Toolkit. I cut them from Merman, Gold Mirror Card and Galvanized Curious Metallic. They are added to the back of the heart and the heart is attached to the tag with 3M Foam Tape. I added the tag to the card base with more 3M Foam Tape. A few Faceted Acrylic Jewels finish off the card. I love the heart with the elements peeking out and the fun subtle triangle background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this weeks Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG for more inspiration from the rest of the Team. Thank you so much for stopping by!

SIP Challenge 182 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

SIP Challenge 182 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

Hi there! It’s been getting progressively colder here and we are supposed to get some snow over the weekend. Not feeling that at all. You know how I love Winter! I’m already counting down the days until Spring! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s time for what has become my lone weekly post! A new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

We haven’t had a Tic-Tac-Toe in a while! I went across the top row. To start, I heat embossed the heart from the Concord & 9th Sending Love Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Calypso Coral and then used my Scissors to cut it out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I heat embossed the arrow. The hearts with the xo and the small heart cluster are from the Concord & 9th Little Love Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped randomly in Hero Arts Fresh Peach. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I added the large heart to the card with 3M Foam Tape. It needed a little bling so I added some Peach Sequins and a few Basic Jewels Rhinestones. I do love a stamped background and that gold embossed heart pops nicely on the Coral! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards including our newest member, Lisa Mackey!

SIP Challenge 174 – Trick or Treat!

SIP Challenge 174 – Trick or Treat!

Hello friends! How was your Monday?! Mine was pretty good. The kiddos behaved themselves, you can’t ask for more than that! When I got home I finally used my InstaPot that I got to make some rice pudding. It was quick and easy and turned out great! I’ll have to find some more things to make in it. There are hundreds of recipes on Pinterest so that should be too hard! ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s Tuesday and time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I’m not much of a Halloween fan so I went with Fall for my card. To create my background I used a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock with my Mini Ink Blending Tools to add Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Barn Door Distress Oxide Ink. It’s splattered with a little water. I stamped the Thankful from the Concord & 9th Thankful Leaves Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Fine Onyx Black and then adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My leaf is cut from a piece of Copper Glitter Paper from the Concord & 9th Summer Glitter Paper Pack using the Concord & 9th Thankful Leaf Die. I adhered it to the card with Glue Tube. For a little added sparkle I dug through my stash and found some Neat & Tangled Festive Fall Sequins. Love the Distress Oxides on the Bristol Smooth! A fun simple fall card!

Fab Friday 149

Fab Friday 149

Hello friends and a very happy Friday to you! I had a nice day yesterday tile shopping with my friend Kelly. We picked out the shower, wall, floor and shower pan tile for her new bathroom and stopped at Chick-fil-a for lunch. After that I cleaned a little and watched some movies for the rest of the night. I’m off to see the kiddos and my windshield is being replaced today. Tristan and I will hit up McDonald’s for lunch later… if she’s good! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€

On another fun note it’s time for a new challenge over on the Fab Friday blog…

I was inspired by this card that Debby Hughes had done the other day. I loved the colors that she used and I just felt like stamping a background myself! I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Grateful Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set andย Soft Pool, Wet Cement, Pumpkin Pie Dye and Mulled Wine Hybrid Ink along with my Mini MISTI so I could stamp the images more than once to make them nice and crisp. The veining in the leaves is all stamped in Cup O Joe and then the background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is cut from Gold Glitter Card with the Hero Arts Thank You Pair Fancy Dies. I added it to a circle cut from 65lb Vellum using the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Nested Frame Cuts Dies with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The circle is then adhered to the card with thin slivers of 3M Foam Tape. A little bling was needed in the form of Little Things by Lucyย Shimmering Pool Jewels and The Colors of Fall Sequin Mix! Love the colors of the leaves! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG for more inspiration and share your card with us in the gallery!

I’m back! LOL! I had a nice day with the kiddos. Daniel is always a pleasure and Tristan settled down early this morning which is always a treat! After we put Daniel on the bus Tristan and I went to Aldi and Hobby Lobby. Having Hobby Lobby so close to my Brother’s house is not a good thing! LOL! I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see my friend Ella for a bit and then who knows! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

I have been wanting to play with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the Stamptember Set that I got so that’s what I did! The image is from the Simon Says Stamp & Altenew Dainty Spring Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Amalgam Ink onto some Bristol Smooth Card Stock using my Mini MISTI so that I could stamp it a few times and make sure that it was nice and crisp! The image is then colored in with Zig Markers and cut out with the Coordinating Die. I adhered it onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Amalgam. Some Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Marigold Sequins complete the card. I do like the Zig Markers but I need some more time to play with them and get used to them! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge!

SIP Challenge 172 – Sketch!

SIP Challenge 172 – Sketch!

Monday done! How did you all fare?! I did pretty good. Daniel was good as always and Tristan wasn’t the little she devil that she has become! LOL! It was rainy here most of the day yesterday but should be nice today. I snuck into Manhattan on Saturday to go and see my friend Kim and then went to October Fest at the Firehouse with Kim and Brian. Saturday was the first day that I wore pants since April!! I’m not liking that fact! It’s getting chilly and that means that my least favorite season is coming! ๐Ÿ˜€

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

My card is super simple! I used the Concord & 9th Snowflake Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp and some Soft Pool Ink with my MISTI to create my background. I stamped each turn twice to make the ink a little more intense. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in WOW! Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Vellum. To cut it out I used the Concord & 9th Lovely Blossoms Dies. I adhered my background to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then added the sentiment with teeny tiny pieces of 3M Foam Tape. All that was left was to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins. Like I said, simple but the heat embossing gives it a little oomph!

Fab Friday 148

Fab Friday 148

Hello peeps and a very happy Friday to you! I have had a somewhat productive week. Got some projects finished and thought of some new ones to start. I’m off to see the kiddos this morning. Daniel has a bit of a cold a hopefully little miss Tristan will be in a good mood! She is in the terrible twos for sure! If she’s good we’ll be bad and go to Mc’D’s for lunch. ๐Ÿ˜€

Time for a new challenge over on the Fab Friday blog…

Most people see Halloween, not me! LOL! I dug out some oldies but goodies to make my card. It all started with the Simon Says Stamp Eliza Snowflake Die cut from some Purple Glitter Paper. I watched one of Kristina Werner’s Holiday card series videos and she made a gorgeous card with all different snowflakes cut from glitter paper. I would like all of the new snowflakes that Simon Says Stamp has released! I do love a snowflake and their ones are great! I happened to remember that there was a stamp set called Holiday Envelopes Sentiments that coordinated with the Eliza Snowflake Die. I stamped the snowflakes in Sugarplum and Carrot randomly onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Black Licorice. I adhered the snowflake with Glue Tube. A little sparkle was needed so I added Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Silver Sequins and the card is done! A very simple card with really non-traditional Holiday colors, but you all know that I like that! LOL! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge!
