Mojo Monday 490

Mojo Monday 490

Oh, it’s Monday already. The weekend really does go so fast! I did have a very nice day off! I ran a few errands in the morning and then Jim came over with lunch and we worked on his crafty project a little more. The rest of the evening was spent watching a TV and just being. It felt so nice to do not much at all. Today back in the swing of things at the Store! 😀

It’s Monday and time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

My card starts off with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. The notebook paper is a piece of Authentique 12×12 from the Twisted Collection. I adhered it to a piece of Black and then added some May Arts Ribbon around the middle. A piece of Echo Park Wintertime This & That 12×12 is adhered to a piece of Chinese Red and that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My image and greeting are from the Hero Arts Welcome Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored in the bunny with Prismacolor Pencils and adhered him and the greeting to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A few Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry and Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is done! I love that simple cozy little bunny sitting on the pillow, so cute! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards, we hope to see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thank you for starting your week off here with me! Have an amazing Monday! 🙂

Hello Lovely Flowers

Hello Lovely Flowers

Thankfully they were wrong about the snow again! It flurried for a little while and then turned to rain. We had a bunch of visitors at the Store today including my friend Jodi and a new customer! I worked on cards most of the day, I’m taking today off so I wanted to get ahead a little. Renee left early to go and celebrate her grandson’s Birthday, I hope that she had a good time! I had dinner with my Parents when I got home and then spent some time with Taylor before heading over to see Sue. She needed a little assistance with a new wireless router that she got. We got that all set up and all of the devices connected! On the way home I stopped at Target to pick up a few things and then relaxed for the rest of the evening. Today  have some cleaning to do, fun Sunday! LOL! 🙂

I was in the mood to color and not be very particular about it so I stamped the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with my MISTI. To color in the image I used Prismacolor Pencils, adding some French Gray around the image to give it some depth. The panel is mounted to a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are added. A very simple but bright and fun card, and it’s technically one layer too! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you so much for stopping by and wish you a nice Simple Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 279

Ahh… the weekend! Yesterday we had fun at the Store with the last of the peeps for the March Lawn Fawn Card Class. I had some of the delicious pork loin that Jim gave me for lunch! Renee and I discussed upcoming classes and I made my card for today. When I got home there was a dog in the backyard. My neighbor upstairs came out and we checked the tags, turns out he lives down the street so he walked him home. I had a little dinner with my Parents and then came home and straightened up a bit. Jim came by and we watched Deadpool, very funny movie! Today there is not a lot going on at the Store so I’ll be able to catch up on some things! 😀

I do have to share the picture of Daniel and Tristan that my Sister-in-Law took of them in their St. Patrick’s Day outfits…

How cute are they?!

I got to play with a new set from Sunny Studio to make my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

All of the images and greeting are from the Sunny Studio City Streets Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the buildings, light post and greeting onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. To make the sidewalk and road I used a Copic Multiliner and my trusty ruler. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I flagged pieces of Chinese Red and Pale Aqua and adhered them to the card. On top of that is another piece of Chinese Red. The stamped panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My car is stamped and colored in with Copics with a little Stardust Pen added to the wheels and trim, some fussy cutting (I didn’t have the dies) and the car is ready to be adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I like the buildings left not colored in, it really makes the car pop! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by to see me today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Fab Friday 108

Fab Friday 108

Yay for Friday! We had a nice chilly day again, all of the snow is still here! The Store was filled with people taking the Card Class and for the evening class my friend Jim stopped by. He even made a card and I was really impressed! He’s a natural! After work we came back to my house for a little TV. Today I have a morning Card Class and the I have to get working on more classes. I have fallen behind in my classes and need to get back to them!

My card for today is for the Fab Friday color challenge…

I have really been into the one layer cards lately so I made another one! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the images are from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the large butterfly in Butter Bar and Fresh Peach using my Mini MISTI, the body is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The smaller butterflies are stamped in Butter Bar, Fresh Peach and Soft Apricot. I put the card back in the MISTI and stamped the greeting from the Concord & 9th Happy Words Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Julep. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Marigold and Tangerine Sequins for a little sparkle. I love to color but there is still nothing like just stamping some images on a card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Make sure you stop by the BLOG and check out my other Teammate’s cards and lets see what you do with the colors! I thank you so much for coming by today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Still absolutely freezing here and the wind down by the Store is unreal! It feels more like Winter now that it has all Winter! I keep telling myself that Spring is just around the corner, I guess we are still a few blocks from that corner! Other than the wind by the Store it was a nice day inside. I got more accomplished than I thought I would, that’s always a nice surprise! On my way home I spoke to Sue and then Heather. When I got to my Parent’s Daniel and my Brother were there so we all had dinner together. After dinner I spoke to Andrew and Jim, it was a busy phone night! Later on I took a ride over to Sue’s and spent a little time with her and her Husband Joe. We had a nice evening. I got a text from a friend that was so sweet, you know of those ones that just makes your heart feel full, what a wonderful way to end the day! Today is day one of this month’s Lawn Fawn Card Class, can’t wait to see all of my peeps!

While I was at the store I made a quick card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I used some more of the Add-Ons to the March My Monthly Hero Kit! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Hero Arts Wood Floor Bold Prints Background to stamp a piece of Solar White 80lb in Soft Brown and adhered it to the card front. My images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Produce and Seeds Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Lemon Lime. I backed it with a piece of Crisp Green and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam at a slight angle. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix Sequins and the card is done! I absolutely love that Wood Floor Background, it’s soon to be a favorite for sure! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 90 – Shaker Card!

SIP Challenge 90 – Shaker Card!

Ugh! SNOW! They keep changing the totals but we are to get between 5 to 18 inches! That’s way too much! I know that I keep on whining but I’m over Winter already! Hopefully this will be the last hurrah and we will be able to move on to warmer temps! It was another nice day at the Store! My friend Arnise stopped by and Angie was in too. I got some things accomplished and also brought my stuff home, the Store will be closed today. I’ll get to craft in the Stampin’ Galley! I had a quick dinner with my Parents when I got home, chatted with Heather for a bit and then Jim came by. We watched YouTube videos and just hung out. A nice relaxing evening with a friend, who could ask for anything more?!

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we ask you to join us and make a shaker card…

I do love to make a shaker and it’s been a while since I have. I started out by cutting a piece of Solar White 80lb with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts and using both sides to add some Fish Tank and Merman Ink to another piece of Solar White 80lb with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. All of my images are from the Sunny Studio Froggy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them all in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are then cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I adhered the Lilly pad to my background and stamped the ripples in Fish Tank. The cattails and flower are then added and the sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. To make my frame I cut out a piece of Deep Blue with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts and adhered a piece of Acetate to back with Scor-Tape. A single layer of 3M Foam Tape is added and then I sprinkled some Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix Sequins onto the background and adhered the frame over it. The frog and the flies are adhered with more 3M Foam Tape onto the Acetate and then the whole thing is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I love that super happy little frog and the flies, so cute! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Shaker Card Challenge! Make sure and stop by the BLOG to see what the rest of the talented Design Team has made to inspire you and let’s see your card in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

As they promised it snowed for much of the day. We got about 4 inches or so but thankfully it didn’t really stick to the roads. I got to the Store and Renee said that she was going to stay home. She lives an hour away so better to be safe than sorry. I got a few things done and then around 1:00PM we decided to close. Heather was off yesterday because she had another procedure on her back so I went straight to her house from work. I got all caught up on my blog comments! Finally! Sorry for the delay! I do read them as they come in but the bank issues on Tuesday really messed up my week. I ran home around 5:00 and saw my little buddy Daniel, Tristan, Jason, Erika and my Parent’s for a bit and then went back over to Heather’s for dinner. She is watching This is Us, trying to get caught up so I watched a few episodes with her. I think she only has five left! Today there is a crop at the Store so it will be a very fun Saturday! 😀

The card that I have for you is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I have a few new things from Sunny Studios and I haven’t really made an Easter card so I decided I need to make at least one! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Ballerina Pink. I used two pieces of paper from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pad, one yellow and one green. On the green one I stamped my greeting from the Sunny Studios A Good Egg Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered the paper to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My images are from the same set and are all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. The Coordinating Dies cut the out and some 3D Foam Squares hold all of them to the card. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Pink Blush, Raspberry and Amethyst Sequins and the card is finished! I do love that set especially the cute little happy chick! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for coming by today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Guess what?! It’s Winter here again! Why won’t he stay away?! We are having some snow this morning, over it people! But it is Friday! So at least that’s good! I had a solo day at the Store yesterday. My Parents came by for a visit and we FaceTimed with my Aunt Shirley in England. Jan also stopped by to make the Pop-Up Card from last week’s class. After work I had dinner and then headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Stephanie was there and Brian stopped by too. Hopefully the roads won’t be bad and I’ll be able to get to the Store today. Ugh! Enough with the snow already! 😀

I did have a little crafty time at the Store and I made a card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I began by stamping the beautiful image from The Ton Haute Wedding Dress Photopolymer Stamp Set In Memento Tuxedo Black and using my Copics to color her in. I cut the image out with my scissors and then ran a Memento Tuxedo Black Pen around the edges. To give it some sparkle I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to give a nice sheen to the dress. The background is a piece of Solar White 80lb that I heat embossed the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background in Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. I added some Ballet Slippers Ink to the background with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. A strip of paper from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pad goes down the left side. I adhered the main image to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Perfectly Penned Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts and that too is adhered with 3D Foam Squares. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins from the Sweet Pea Mix and the card is done! I have liked that stamp since I first saw it and I couldn’t hold out any longer! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have a fun Friday! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Case a Designer!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Case a Designer!

Hello again! I’m back for my second post for today! We have a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog for the month of March! This time we ask you to CASE a Designer!

Just choose one of the Design Team’s cards as your inspiration and go from there! I love Lindsey’s simple Lovely Cards! You can see the original post HERE. I thought the way that she used the Hello Lovely stamp to create a subtle background was so clever! First I used the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Coordinating Butterfly Card Dies to cut out the wings, overlay and body for the butterfly. I positioned the wings in the MISTI and stamped the outline in Black Licorice and the fill-in in Juice Box. To hold them together I adhered a piece of Black behind the wings, adhered the Vellum die cut wings on top and then the body. For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I placed the folded card into my MISTI and positioned the flower cluster from the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set where I wanted it, inked it up with some Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers Ink and stamped. While the card was in the MISTI I also stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Beauty Set in Black Licorice in the lower right corner. The butterfly is adhered to the card with a 3D Foam Square. I stamped two more of the small butterflies in Ballet Slippers and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Ballerina Pink and Orchid Sequins to finish the card. I love that butterfly and the subtle stamped background, thanks for the inspiration Lindsey! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th CASE a Designer Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Design Team has done to inspire you and we would love for you to share your card with us in the gallery! You have the whole month to play along! Thanks for stopping by again today! I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Thursday! 🙂

OSAT March Blog Hop – Birthday Bash!

OSAT March Blog Hop – Birthday Bash!

Hey hey! Happy Thursday! I had a nice productive day at the Store after I had to stop at the bank again yesterday morning! My ATM card didn’t work, thanks citibank! I’ve definitely seen enough of them this week! LOL! Renee had her Kiwi Lane class and my Parent’s stopped by in the morning for a bit. After work I came home and spoke to Heather for a bit. My friend Jim came by and we had dinner, Zorn’s which I haven’t had in forever, and listened to music and talked. A very nice way to end the day indeed!

For my projects 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. If you have arrived here from the talented Megan Thompson, welcome! This month we have a Birthday Bash theme! I don’t know about you but I can always use a Birthday card! I made a card and a coordinating gift box to share with you today!

First up is my card! I used the Lawn Fawn Out of This World Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped some of the images from the set in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink so that I could color them in with my Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I cut a piece of Black to be slightly smaller than my card front and heat embossed the greeting in the bottom left with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The background is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I added the images to the card with 3D Foam Squares and then stamped one of the stars from the set in Yeti Ink randomly over the background. Finally I used my Signo White Gel Pen to add dots to the background and give it a little more of a space feel. I think this would make a great card for a little boy’s Birthday, don’t you?

Next I have the coordinating box. I used the Lawn Fawn Fancy Box Lawn Cut to cut out the box and then used the Lawn Fawn Starry Skies Lawn Cut to cut out the stars from the lid. Some more images from the Out of This World Set are stamped, colored and cut out. I adhered the box together and added the stamped images to the lid with 3D Foam Squares. Again, I stamped the stars and added some dots and it’s done! I love that box, it’s a nice different way to give a gift card or a little present!

I hope that you enjoyed my card and gift box  for the OSAT Birthday Bash Blog Hop! You can click on the next button below to go back to the start and see what the talented Lori Mueller has come up with!! Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today. Have a thoroughly awesome Thursday! 🙂
