SIP Challenge 169 – Background Stamps!

SIP Challenge 169 – Background Stamps!

Another Monday done! I had a nice time with the kiddos and Tristan was a delight! That’s not always the case lately! Terrible two’s are no joke! LOL! I took part in the crafty garage sale on Saturday and managed to send a lot of crafty goodness to new homes! I also got to see some peeps from the store and that was really nice! I’m still cleaning and organizing the Stampin’ Galley but it’s coming along nicely! 😀

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

I got to play with some of the goodies from this month’s Concord & 9th release! I started my card by stamping pieces from the Concord & 9th Cozy Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Lake Shores and Rosie Cheeks Ink using my MISTI onto some Solar White 80lb. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is cut from a piece of Glitter Paper from the Concord & 9th Neutrals Glitter Pack and two pieces of Solar White 110lb Card Stock using the Concord & 9th Merry & Bright Die. I used Multi-Purpose Spray to adhere them together and then added it to the card. A sprinkling of Shimmer Pool Gems from Little Things by Lucy finish off the card. I love the nice soft colors and big bold sentiment! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Background Stamps Challenge! Head over to the BLOG for more inspiration and share your card with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 167 – Large Sentiment!

SIP Challenge 167 – Large Sentiment!

Hi there and a happy Tuesday to you all! I hope that you all had a nice weekend, I did! Although, it has been raining here since Saturday night and looks it will be raining through the rest of the week. Thankfully I have been getting a little more of my MOJO back so spending time in the Stampin’ Galley will be fun! I also got some Polychromos Pencils and Alcohol Ink and I need to try them! LOL! 😀

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

I have a few of the Concord & 9th Turnabout Stamps that I haven’t had the chance to play with so I pulled one out to have a little play! My background is stamped on a piece of Solar White 80lb with Hippo, Freshly Cut Grass, Merman and Fresh Lavender Ink using the Concord & 9th Lovely Blossoms Photopolymer Stamp and my MISTI. It’s adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my greeting I used the FRIEND from the Concord & 9th Posie Fill-In Die and cut it out from Black 110lb. It’s adhered to a piece of Vellum with Glue Tube. To add it to the card I cut some Black 3D Foam Squares and hid them behind the letters. Just a few Basic Jewels Rhinestones scattered across from top left to lower right complete the card! I really do love those Turnabout Stamps, you can make awesome backgrounds in any color that you want!

I hope that you enjoyed my card! Be sure to stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s projects and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for visiting and have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Color Inspiration!

Hello there my friends! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend! It’s a little rainy here so I have been spending some time cleaning out the Stampin’ Galley. I’ll be participating in a craft sale on September 22nd in Oceanside to help with my ongoing purge! I’ll share more details with you as we get closer! I think that there are 12 of us in total so there will be some great goodies for sale! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

Some nice soft Fall colors! I started my card by creating the background using the Plaid Background Photopolymer Stamp and my MISTI. It’s stamped in Mint Julep and Cup O Joe onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. The background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I used the Lovely Blossoms Dies to cut out a piece of Calypso Coral and Early Espresso. I adhered the Calypso Coral die cut to another piece of Calypso Coral and used Glue Tube to add back in the you are lovely and frame. The excess is trimmed off with my Scissors. The tails are two pieces of Wood Textures 6×6 Paper. I added them behind the die cut and the added a piece of Fun Foam. To soften the background a bit I trimmed a piece of Vellum to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and and added that to the back of the die cut and then adhered the whole thing to the card with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Espresso, Lemon Drop and Lime Sorbet Sequins and a die cut flower also from the Lovely Blossoms Dies cut from a piece of So Saffron complete the card!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Thankful Leaves!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Thankful Leaves!

Happy Friday! I have been watching Brian and Kim’s girls Izzy and Savannah all week. They went on a well deserved and much needed cruise to the Bahamas with two of their friends. The girls have been so good and we have had a lot of fun! I’m sure that will be happy to see Mom and Dad when they get home on Sunday! 😀

It’s time for another Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! This week we are featuring the Thankful Leaves Stamps and Dies! I also used a sentiment from the Shiplap Sentiments Stamp Set!

I really do love that leaf die and today I used it to make a shaker card! I began by cutting out the solid leaf from a piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock. On the bottom I heat embossed the Hello from The Shiplap Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I then used the Leaf Die with the insert to cut out a piece of Copper Glitter Paper from the Summer Glitter Paper Pack. On the back of the Grey panel I adhered a piece of Acetate and then used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere to the copper glitter leaf to the Acetate. Some 3M Foam Tape is added to the back of the panel. I used a darker piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock for the card base and added Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold, Pewter and Marshmallow Sequins before adhering the front. I love all of the sparkle and that Glitter Paper from Concord & 9th is awesome!

I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! Thank you for spending a little time with me today! Have a fantastic Weekend! 🙂

Wedding Congrats – Concord & 9th!

Happy Monday! How was the weekend?! Mine was good. I drove upstate to see my friends Ella and Tom on Saturday. The rain was terrible on the way up there but the sun did peek out later in the afternoon. Yesterday I got some things done around the house and then went over to see Brian and Kim for a bit. Today I have some cleaning and laundry to do, fun right?! LOL! I’m going to try and get into the Stampin’ Galley too, let’s see if that happens! 😀

I forgot to share my card with you last week featuring the NEW Concord & 9th Top it Off Stamps! So that’s what I have for you today! I started by heat embossing some of the images from the set in Hero Arts White and Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Grey 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini MISTI to make sure that everything was lined up! Once all of my heat embossing was done I adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For a little sparkle I added Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins and the card is done! The card was pretty simple to make and I think would work great for a wedding! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for visiting with me and have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Anything Goes!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Anything Goes!

Hello!

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th! It’s also their third Birthday! We will be celebrating with them all month long with Feature Friday posts! Each Friday we will be sharing ideas for one of this month’s new products! It’s also time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

You all know that Concord & 9th is one of my favorite companies and I do love to get goodies early! LOL! I used the NEW Thankful Leaves Dies to make a masculine Birthday card! To start I choose a piece of glitter paper from the Concord & 9th Neutrals Glitter Pack and a piece of Copper Foil Sheet. For the glitter paper I used the Thankful Leaves Die and poked out all of the pieces. When I cut out the one from the Copper Foil Sheet the pieces stayed and I liked the look! I used the Die again without the middle piece to cut out a piece of Desert Storm 80lb to back the Copper leaf and adhered it with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. For the card I used the Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp and some Hero Arts Soft Brown Ink and stamped it onto another piece of Desert Storm 80lb. That is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my greeting I heat embossed the Let’s Celebrate from the Triple Step Hooray Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto more Desert Storm 80lb and trimmed it out with my scissors. The leaves are then adhered to the card with more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and the greeting with 3m Foam Tape. A simple fun Birthday card with a masculine twist!

SIP Challenge 158 – Christmas in July!

SIP Challenge 158 – Christmas in July!

Hello peeps! Just popping in with a quick post for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge. The actual Stamp, Ink, Paper site is having major issues this morning so the post won’t be up for a little while. But the Design Team has all of their posts up and I’ll link to them below! Now for this week’s challenge badge…

I used some old and new sets from Concord & 9th for my card. To start I heat embossed the lightbulb from the Concord & 9th Shine On Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of Gold Metallic 27lb Vellum. The top of the bulb is also heat embossed in Silver onto a piece of Ionized Curious Metallic. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I heat embossed my greeting from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder using my Mini MISTI so that I could do it twice to make it a little brighter. The background with the greeting is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock. I added the bulb with 3M Foam Tape and then a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card. I do love the simplicity and metallic elements on the card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Once the BLOG is up I hope that you will check out the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Mixed Media!

Happy Monday! I trust that you all had a nice weekend! I did! Yesterday I went out East with a friend, we had lunch by a stream and then stopped in Port Jefferson on the way back. It was the perfect day for a road trip in the convertible! I also picked up a Rhubarb Pie, my Great Grandmother used to grow Rhubarb and makes pies when I was little! The pie wasn’t as good as hers but it definitely brought back memories! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

I got use one of the NEW Stamp and Die Sets from this month’s release to make my card! I also dug out some Glitter Paste and used a lot of pink and a little ribbon, now there are a few things I don’t often use! My background is a piece of Iridescent Pink 65lb Card. I used my Palette Knife to add Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter Paste through the Concord & 9th Retro Petals Turnabout Stencil and set it aside to dry. From the Concord & 9th Laurel Frame Photopolymer Stamp Set I stamped the wreath in Jalapeño and Noble Fir and the flowers in Ballet Slippers, Peachy Keen and Bubblegum using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. Once the background was dry I added a piece of Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4″ Pink Pirouette Ribbon and adhered it around the back. The background is then added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To adhere the wreath and flowers I used 3M Foam Tape. Finally, I cut out the hello, also from the Laurel Frames Dies, from more 110lb and used Multi-Matte Medium to add it to the ribbon. The pictures don’t do the Sugar Paste justice, it’s subtle but nice and sparkly!

City Welcome – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

City Welcome – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello peeps! I hope that you all had a safe and happy 4th of July! I went out to my friend Carol’s and got to see a bunch of friends that I haven’t seen in a while which is always a good time!

It’s time for my July Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! You know that I love a little cityscape and the new City Stacks Stamps and Dies are perfect for making a little scene!

I started by heat embossing the buildings from the Concord & 9th City Stacks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto some different shades of Grey 110lb Card Stock. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my card base I blended Hero Arts Soft Pool Ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to create a subtle sky. I wanted to make the card easy to mail so I added the different building to the card front with E-Z Runner. The welcome is cut from Silver Glitter Card and adhered to the bottom with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Pretty simple but I do love the different “streets” of buildings!

I hope that you like the card for my July Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Sparkle & Shine!

Hello again! Two days in a row! I’m trying to get back to being crafty, a little Mojo here and there. I had a nice quiet evening last night, just hung out with Cali and watched some TV. Today I have some cleaning and laundry to do. I also have to get my stuff together for tomorrow’s road trip to PA. I do love a good road trip! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

Who doesn’t like a little sparkle and shine?! I went for a super simple card with a lot of sparkle and shine! I stared by die cutting the Concord & 9th Bitty Thank You Die from Black 110lb three times so that I could stack them together for a little depth. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. My card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock has a piece of Silver Glitter Card adhered to the front and then I used Multi-Matte Medium to adhere the thank you! A super simple card that would make a great wedding thank you card! If you wanted to mass produce them you could skip the stacked die to speed up the process!
