Mojo Monday 496

Mojo Monday 496

Happy Monday! I had myself a little adventure yesterday! Heather and I drove up to Nashua New Hampshire to pick up her new car. We had a nice weather on the way there, it took a little longer to get things finished than we had hoped but in the end it all worked out. We stopped at Cracker Barrel for an early dinner, had a little rain in Connecticut on the way back but all in besides the fact that being in the car for 8 plus hours is a lot we had a good day! This morning I have a bunch of orders to get mailed out and I need to stop by the Store too. 😀

Today’s card is brought to you by this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

I turned the sketch on it’s side! To start my card I heat embossed the Hero Arts Thank You with Flourishes Wood Mount Stamp in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of White Gold Curious Metallic. To my card base of Ivory 110lb I adhered two strips of Copper Metallic with the ends flagged and on top of that is a piece of Black. The panel with the Thank You is adhered with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. To give the card some shine I added some Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins. Not a very complicated card but I love the mix of metallics and the nice bold Thank You! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card! Stop by the BLOG and see the inspiration that the rest of the Team has come up with and let’s see your card in the gallery! I thank you very much for starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Yes, it was another sunny but windy day here. I kept myself busy at the Store, got a card made and did a few other things. Some dinner with my Parent’s when I got home and then a few errands. My friend has been telling me that I need to watch Blindspot so I finally caved last night. I’m glad that I did! It’s a very good show! I don’t even want to admit to how many episodes I binge watched! LOL! Let’s just say that I’m well into season one! 😀

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

It’s a very simple card that uses a set that I have had for ages and never used! I’m sure that has never happened to you! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Ballerina Pink. I heat embossed the pretty filagree from the Mama Elephant Filagree Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Kraft and adhered that to the card. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in gold. I used the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies to cut it out and adhered it to the card with a 3D Foam Square. To finish the card I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins. I’m sort of confused as to why it took me so long to use the set, I love the the stamp! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 242

Wednesday already! It was a quiet day at the Store. Renee did have a few people in to do some make up projects. I made a few cards and spoke to Sue. After work I came home, my Parent’s were out at my Brother’s watching the kids. Jim came by and we went for a nice long walk on the bike train again. On the way back we stopped and got Zorn’s for dinner. We worked on the crafty project, we are almost finished, and watched a little TV. Today Renee is off taking care of last minute baby shower things so I’ll be alone. I’m going to try and focus on getting things done! 😀

Since it is Wednesday that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I did a card with a nice ink blended background! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Pale Tomato, Dark Quartz and Soft Vanilla Ink to a piece of Solar White 80lb and set is aside for a little while to dry. Of course after about 10 minutes I got impatient and sped up the drying with my Heat Tool. After it was completely dry I used my Powder Tool and then stamped the images from the Hero Arts Dreams are Made Photopolymer Stamp Set In Versa-Mark and heat embossed them in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Next I used the Hero Arts Floral Border Fancy Die to cut out a piece of Deep Blue. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum that is adhered around the back of the blue die cut. I added some 3M Foam Tape to the back of the blue die cut and adhered it to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins and the card is done. I do love that Dreams are Made Set, there are some fun images and great greetings in there! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has done and enter your card in the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wicked Wednesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 495

Mojo Monday 495

I had a quiet Sunday. I had a little work to do for a friend on the computer, cleaned a bit and watched far too much TV. It was sort of overcast most of the day and a little chilly too. I had thought about going into Manhattan but then decided that I didn’t feel like taking the train or driving in so that took care of that. I guess it was a relaxing day, although I did find it a bit boring. Today back to the Store and I will fill the day with some craftiness, that always makes the day better! 😀

It’s Monday people and time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

This card came out of nowhere! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kraft. I used the Hero Arts Skylines Fancy Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock for the buildings and some Gold Mirror Card for the Bridge. The buildings are adhered to the card with a strip of Battleship Gray underneath. I adhered the bridge to a piece of Chinese Red, trimmed of the excess and adhered the square to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next I die cut the happy from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set from a piece of Solar White 110lb, heat embossed the birthday in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Black and adhered the happy to the top and then the black to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I will admit that I wasn’t really sure as I was putting the card together but I really do like the finished product, especially the colors! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! There are more cards to see over on the BLOG so stop by and take a look and let’s see your take on the sketch too! Thank you for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Spring Lace Leaf

Spring Lace Leaf

Another absolutely gorgeous day here, after the rain ended in the morning. I ran with Jim to get a haircut and then headed over to the Store. It wasn’t a crop, Angie had a book class. I got to see some of my favorite peeps and then around 2:30 Andrew stopped by! Good to have a visit with him! Some dinner with the ‘Rent’s when I got home, a little ride in the car, too nice to stay inside, and then some TV. Today is supposed to be a little cooler so I’ll get some things done around the house. 😀

I have a simple card to share with you today using one of my favorite sets! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of Black Glitter Tape across the top. Next up I heat embossed the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I wanted it to have a little bit of a Spring feel so I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Lime Green Ink to the leaf. I added it to the front and back, using my Heat Tool to dry the layers. A piece of May Arts Natural Twine is tied into a bow at the base of the leaf and then the leaf is adhered to the card with a few Mini Glue Dots. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaf Dies, I cut it once from Black Glitter Card Stock and twice from Black. Some Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive adheres the die cuts to each other and to the card. I still love that stamp set and am glad that I can use it year round! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks for spending some of your Sunday with me! Have a sensational day! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 285

Happy weekend! I had a nice day in Manhattan yesterday! I spend some time with my friend Mary in he morning and then went to meet Kim for lunch. She’s working in our old building at 345 Park Avenue. We stopped at Chop’t and got lunch and went to eat in this little park with a waterfall…

It was a beautiful day as you can see from the picture! I got back out on the Island around 3:00 and came home for a bit. Jim came over around 7:00 and we went for a nice long walk on the Bethpage Bike Trail before heading to the diner for dinner. A little TV when we got back to my house before saying good night. Today I’ll be at the Store and there is a Crop, fun! 😀

My card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I went with a nice simple card. The background is a piece of Kraft that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Background Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. I added some Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set it. The background is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My butterfly is cut from Black with the Concord & 9th Floral & Flutter Dies. The greeting is cut from more Black three times using the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Dies. They are adhered to each other and to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. A little scattering of Pewter Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and the card is done! I love that butterfly and the subtle Tree Ring on the Kraft! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Fab Friday 111

Ahh… Friday! Thursday was pretty good, the Store was fun, had a little card class in the morning. I came home after work and got ready to go over to Jim’s for dinner. We had Tacos, I got to meet some of his peeps and we got all of the technology in the house straightened out! This morning I’m off to see the city to see my friend Mary and then have lunch with Kim! 😀

It’s a Fab Friday week and we have a new sketch for you…

Oh yes, another stamped background! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Grape Soda, Juice Box, Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum and Freshly Cut Grass right onto the card base. Down the left side I adhered a piece of 48lb Vellum and a strip of Rose Chintz. My greeting is from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Bubblegum for the happy, the Mother’s Day is stamped in Freshly Cut Grass onto a banner that is stamped from the Lawn Fawn Bannertastic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Juice Box. I used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut out both and adhered them to the card with 3M Foam Tape and E-Z Runner. I love the simplicity of the card and the nice bright colors!

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! 🙂

SIP Challenge 96 – CAS Wedding!

SIP Challenge 96 – CAS Wedding!

Hey there! It’s to be rainy and chilly again for the next few days, but will warm up at the weekend! Another fun Monday spent a the Store. Poor Renee, she gets to listen to me whine sometimes and I appreciate that. I did get a few kits made of the Wedding Card that I posted a few weeks ago. I would love to kit up more cards but it’s not easy unless they are limited in stamping! I had another quiet evening at home after a quick dinner with my folks. I haven’t been myself lately, lots going on. But this all will pass, hopefully soon. 😀

It’s time today for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

Ahh, clean and simple, loving those kind of cards lately! My card today is definitely not a difficult one to make! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped my images and greeting with my Mini MISTI. The flowers are from the Altenew Remember This Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the large flower in Lava Rock and then masked it and stamped the smaller flowers and leaves. After removing the mask I added two more layers to the large flower with Moon Rock and Evening Gray. My greeting is from the Altenew Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lava Rock. I was going to add a few sequins but actually like the card just the way it is! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! There are some excellent projects over on the BLOG from the rest of the Design Team so make sure you take a look! We would love to see your project in the gallery too! Thank you for taking some time to come by and see me today! Have a great Tuesday! 🙂
