Freshly Made Sketches 300

Hi peeps! Another beautiful day here on Long Island! I ran a bunch of errands in the morning and saw the kiddos for a little bit. Around 2:00 I headed out to meet Jim at Home Depot so we could pick up some more supplies and continue on with our furniture projects! We got a lot more done, the end table is almost finished and the chairs are all stripped and one is sanded. We had some Chinese food for dinner and I headed back to my house around 9:00. Steph came by for a little bit and we sat outside and chatted. I made my card for today and called it a night! 😀

That card that I made is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I kept my card nice and clean and simple! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I trimmed two pieces of paper from the Heidi Swapp Hello Today Paper Pad and adhered them to the card to match the sketch. My fun ballon is cut out from Gold Mirror Card with the Concord & 9th Happy Balloons Dies and is adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Just a few Wood Veneer Stars and Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love that fun balloon with the happy inside, so cool! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Happy Anniversary Concord & 9th!!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Happy Anniversary Concord & 9th!!

Hello there and welcome back! I appreciate you stopping by again today! It’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! And it’s also Concord & 9th two year anniversary!

Can you believe it?! They have been supplying us with awesome products for two whole years! The rest of the Design Team and I will helping them celebrate all month long! We will be having Friday posts featuring stamps and dies from this month’s release! They also have a super fun stamp set this month that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying $60 or more purchase! You can find out more about that by clicking HERE! We are all featuring that set for our post today! Here is the challenge badge…

As soon as I saw the set I knew that it would become a favorite! We all make a lot of Thank You cards and this one is great for quick ones! My cards are all note card size with bases of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background onto the fronts with Peacock and Jalapeño Ink. Next I stamped the greetings using the Concord & 9th Serious Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the same colors with my Mini MISTI. The greetings are then adhered to pieces of 29lb Vellum and Fun Foam is used to attach them to my card bases. I could have been done but I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins for a little sparkle! I also stamped the #seriously onto each of the backs of the envelopes! I was going to use these myself but I think that I will tie a piece of ribbon around them and give them to a friend as a little gift! I can always make some more!

I hope that you enjoyed my little card set for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards and we hope that you will play along with us and enter your card in the gallery over on the BLOG! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Paper Craft Crew 255

Paper Craft Crew 255

The gloomy Tuesday morning turned into a nice day around 1:00PM! I can deal with that! I did get a few things around the house completed in the morning and then I took my MacBook and sat outside in the afternoon! I do love a little sit outside! In the evening I went over to Jim’s for some dinner and more furniture refinishing! We are working on some chairs and an end table. Pictures when we are done of course! 😀

And we are at Wednesday so time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

A card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock starts off today’s card. I used the Concord & 9th Globe Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set to heat emboss the world onto a piece of Soft Sky with Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder. The Coordinating Dies are used to cut it out. I also die cut a banner with the Concord & 9th Best Banners Dies from a piece of Black 110lb. The world is from the same stamp set and is heat embossed onto another piece of Black 110lb with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Before I adhered the globe to the card base with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner I added a piece of Copper Washi Tape. The world’s is adhered to the globe with 3D Foam Squares and the best with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. A little cascade of Pretty Pink Posh Copper Sequins and the card is done! I love the world’s best greeting, could be anything! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Make sure and come back at 11:00! I will have my post for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th challenge! In the mean time enjoy your morning! 🙂

SIP Challenge 111

SIP Challenge 111

That was a very rainy Monday indeed. It rained all day, not really helping with the Monday’s at all! I did get my computer stuff done that I wanted to in the morning and did a little laundry too. In the evening Jim came by, we had Wendy’s for dinner and then watched TV. I’m having him watch Stranger Things, so far he likes it! This morning I want to get more computer stuff accomplished. Wish me luck! 😀

It’s Tuesday so time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Hero Arts Waves Stencil and my Mini Ink Blending Tool along with Soft Pool Ink to create a background. The images and greeting are all from the Hero Arts Seahorse Color Layering Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the large and medium seahorses in Cornflower. The additional layers are added to the large seahorse with Pool and Navy using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I stamped three of the small seahorses in Pool onto the background along with the greeting in Navy. Some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins finish the scene. I do love that seahorse and the subtle look of the stencil behind it! I hope that you enjoy my Design tEam card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards! We hope that you will play along with us! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Paper Players 356

Paper Players 356

Monday already huh?! Another weekend zipped by! I did end up going to the beach with Heather in the morning yesterday, we stayed for a few hours and then ran a some errands. She made me a turkey burger for dinner and then her and George had to go to a wake so I headed back to my house. Later on Taylor came by and we watched TV for a bit. This morning I have a bunch of things to get finished on the computer and it’s supposed to rain so it will be the perfect day for it! 😀

I made a quick card late last night and it’s for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

To begin my card I stamped the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Background Photopolymer Stamp onto a piece of Smoky Slate with Doe Ink and used my Scissors to cut it out. For the greeting I heat embossed one from the Concord & 9th By Your Side Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The card base is a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Desert Storm 80lb adhered to the front. I used Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the tree ring to the card. The little tree rings are from the Concord & 9th Cozy Up Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped randomly in Yeti Ink onto the background. To finished the card I added Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow Sequins! As you can see from the picture that Tree Ring is a very well loved stamp! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Aloha Pineapple Thanks

Aloha Pineapple Thanks

Hi there! The gloomy morning yesterday did turn into a nice sunny afternoon so I did get to enjoy the yard for a while. Heather came by and we ran to BJ’s. I saw my buddy Anthony there. Haven’t seen him in way too long. We are going to make plans and go out to dinner soon. After BJ’s Heather came back to my house for a bit. Later on Taylor stopped by and my Brother and Erika came by my Parent’s with the kiddos! I walked around the yard with Tristan for a while, she is really trying hard to say uncle! The evening ended with a little TV. This morning I think I’m going to go to the beach with Heather for a bit! That should be fun! 😀

I have a simple and fun card to share with you today! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of paper from the Concord & 9th Aloha Fill-In Patterned Paper Pack covering the front. The images and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Pop Art Pineapple Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the pineapple in Sunflower and Doe. The leaves are stamped in Jalapeño and then just edges in Noble Fir. My greeting is stamped in Black Licorice and then they are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I used some 3M Foam Tape to adhere them to the card and added some Pretty Pink Posh Lemon Drop Sequins to finish the card. I love the nice dark paper with the bright pop of the pineapple! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for stopping by! Have a simply amazing Sunday! 🙂

Fab Friday 118

Fab Friday 118

Hooray for Friday! The weather was just about perfect here yesterday again, we have been so lucky lately! I had some computer stuff to do in the morning and so I took the laptop and sat outside. I squeezed in a little cleaning and a few other household things in the afternoon. After dinner I headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. We had a few errands to run and met Stephanie at Target before heading back to Heather’s. George spent some time with us when he got home, we always have so much fun! Today I have some more computer stuff to do, hopefully outside again! 😀

It’s a Fab Friday week and we have some nice bright colors for you…

I pulled out the Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo Set, haven’t used that one in a while, and made a one layer card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Across the bottom I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Soft Pool. The card is then placed in my Mini MISTI for the rest of the stamping. The flamingo is stamped in Soft Pink for the first layer and then Ultra Pink for the second and third. I stamped the legs, beak and greeting in Soft Granite. The grass is stamped in Lime Green with the water ripples added around them in Tide Pool. I added a little Black Glaze Pen to the eye and a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink and Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is done! I do love a one layer card and the sequins again come in handy for filling in some of the space around the image! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG to see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your take on the colors in the gallery! Thanks for coming by and checking in with me today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Another fabulous day! I actually ended up having a lot of stuff to do yesterday! I forgot that my car was supposed to be inspected at the end of July so I got that done… oops! I also had a few projects that I helped Jim with, keeps my mind sharp! He came by after work and we watched a movie and just relaxed. What a nice way to end a Tuesday! 😀

We are mid-week so it’s time for a new Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I can’t believe it but I couldn’t find anything more backyard BBQ than flowers! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Jellybean to the bottom and Surf Blue to the top. To mask off the areas I used a piece of Post-it Tape. My flowers are from the Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I atamped the flowers in Black for the outline and added the centers with Duckling. My stems are stamped in Jellybean and they are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. The stems are adhered with Multi-Matte Medium and the flowers with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is cut from a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock and Black 110lb with the Simon Says Stamp Painted Summer Die. I used Multi-Purpose Spray to adhere them to each other and the card. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins fill in some of the space around the flowers and the card is done! I do love a nice simple crisp card, I think this one fits the bill! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for visiting!

SIP Challenge 110 – Primary Colors!

SIP Challenge 110 – Primary Colors!

Another Monday for the books! I was relatively productive, got a few things done in the morning, did a little cleaning and some reading. After dinner I ran to BJ’s with Heather and bumped into Andrew’s Parents. So nice to see them! I have no idea what’s on for today but I’m sure that it will be a good time! 😀

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

I went with a shade of one of the colors! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my MISTI to stamp the large and small hearts and greeting from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set on the inside and outside of the card in Bubblegum and Black Licorice. I also stamped an additional greeting on the inside. To cut out the heart on the outside I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Dies. All that was left to do was to add Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink and Watermelon Sequins! A simple card that is stepped up with the negative die cut on the front! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Primary Colors Challenge! We hope to see your card in the gallery so stop by the BLOG for a little more inspiration!

Paper Players 355

As predicted most of yesterday was quiet. I read a little in the morning and then around 3:00 I headed over to Brian & Kim’s to celebrate Kim’s brother Kevin’s birthday! Heather and George were there so I spent most of my time with them. We had fun and it was good to see everyone! Taylor came by and spent the rest of the night with me, we watched a little TV. This morning I’m going to get some cleaning done! Ahh… Mondays! 😀

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge to share with you…

I went diagonal from top left to bottom right. My card started by me using the Concord & 9th Aloha Fill0In Stencils and some Sunflower and Lobster Ink to color the Concord & 9th Aloha Fill-In Patterned Paper. I trimmed it to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4  and then used the Simon Says Stamp Nesting Circles to cut out a piece from the left side. It’s adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Then I placed it in my Mini MISTI and stamped the greeting from the Concord & 9th Aloha Friend Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sunflower inside the negative space of the circle. A few Teresa Collins Red Enamel Dots complete the card! I love the Fill-In Papers and how you can make them any color that you want! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! Thank you for starting another one of your weeks off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
