Floral Happy On!

Floral Happy On!

Another rainy overcast day but that didn’t matter because of the crop inside the Store! I had fun as I always do! Got to spend some time with my friend Evelyn, we chatted about her upcoming trip to London and Europe. After work I came home and had some dinner. Then I decided that it was time to do some cleaning so I tackled the closet in the dining room and threw out a nice big black garbage bag of crap! Feels good to purge! Today I’m off and I don’t have a lot planned so we’ll see where the day takes me! 😀

I have yet another stamped background card to share with you today! I used the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp my background in Moonstone and Minty Fresh Ink onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My sentiment is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. To adhered it to the card I used Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape and hid teeny tiny pieces behind the embossing. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is finished! As you can see I’m really enjoying the stamped backgrounds! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for stopping by and have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 284

Happy Friday peeps! Thankfully it only rained in the morning and the sun came out for the rest of the afternoon! The first day of Card Class went well and I’m looking forward to day two! I was on my own for dinner again last night, the Parent’s were watching Daniel and Tristan. I can see where I fall on the importance list! LOL! My evening was spent watching TV again to distract my little brain! Good times! 😀

Today’s card is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I haven’t watercolored in a while and I have these new to me Pearl Watercolors from FineTec, I needed to give them a try! The flowers are from the Altenew Botanical Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set, I heat embossed them in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto some Arches 140lb Watercolor Card. They are then colored in with the FineTec Pearl Watercolors and my Aquawash Brush. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Next I used the Altenew Happy Die to cut out a piece of Kraft and two pieces of thin chipboard (left over packaging!), some Multi-Matte Medium adheres them to each other. While I waited for them to dry I created my card base with a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with another piece of Kraft and adhered a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock down the center. The happy is then smooshed into my Versa-Mark Pad and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder, I did it twice to give it a really nice shine. To finish the card I adhered the flowers and happy to the card with 3M Foam Tape and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins. I really like the FineTec Pearl Watercolors, they have a nice sparkle to them, it looks so much better in person! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for spending a little of your Friday with me! Enjoy the rest of the day! 🙂

SIP Challenge 95 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 95 – A Sketch!

Another Monday behind us! It was overcast but warm here yesterday, I’ll take that! The Store was busy, it was Home Decor day and everyone came in to paint their wood pieces. I worked on some cards for upcoming classes and got some more of my tax stuff together which is also what I did last night! Nothing like waiting until the last minute! I had dinner when I got home and was going to do a little cleaning but the taxes had to come first. I also had to run over to my friend Sue’s house for a bit to pick up some things and stopped at Target on the way back to get Winston some food. I like Tuesday’s because this evening I get to work on the crafty project with my friend! 😀

Today it’s time for a new challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper

I started my card by using the Concord & 9th Floral Fill-In Patterned Paper and the Coordinating Stencils to add Merman Ink to the paper with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. I then used the second stencil to add Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I stamped the flower from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merman heat embossed the second layer in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder to match the paper. It’s cut out with my Scissors and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is from the Concord & 9th Happy Day Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a strip of Solar White 80lb. Some more 3D Foam Squares adhered it to the card right under the stamped flower and the card is done! I do love that Fill-In Paper, such a very clever idea!! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! We have some great inspiration from the rest of the Team over on the BLOG and we can’t wait to see your card in the gallery! Thank you for coming by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

I know I say it all the time but the weekend goes too fast! It was a gorgeous day here. I had a nice time in Manhattan in the morning and ran to get the train, literally! Boy am I out of shape! LOL! Jim picked me up at the station and we came back to my house, saw my Parents for a bit and then jumped in my car, put the top down and went for a nice long ride along the north shore. It’s so pretty up there and the houses are so nice. We stopped at IKEA on the way back and had some Swedish meatballs for dinner and did a little shopping. When we got back to my house I helped him with some iPhone stuff. The rest of the evening was spent catching up with some other friends! So nice to speak to my peeps! 😀

Ahh.. Monday, it’s not such a bad day when you have a new Mojo Monday sketch to start your day…

My card starts off with the usual base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is a piece of Kraft that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp and some Doe Ink. Next up is a piece of of Chinese Red with the hearts from the Concord & 9th Love Always Photopolymer Stamp Set heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I adhered that to the background and then a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Tape across it. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th By Your Side Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Cranberry onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. I adhered that to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Raspberry and Sparkling Clear Sequins finish it off! You know that Barnwood Background Stamp is my fave and I love the falling hearts too! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

Lucky Because…

Lucky Because…

Hello and welcome to post number two for today! Once a month I get to do a solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog and share a fun project with you using some goodies from one of my favorite companies! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. While you’re there check out all of the other fabulous cards that the rest of the Team has created as we get ready for our next challenge coming up on April 9th!

I love the big new word dies that they came out with and isn’t it nice to remember that no matter what we have going on in our lives, I’m sure that we all can find something that makes us feel lucky! And how nice to let someone else know that we are lucky to have them!

To start my card I die cut the large lucky from the Concord & 9th Lucky Dies from a piece of Solar White 80lb paper and used some Washi Tape to hold it to a piece of Black Card Stock. I put the outline of the die back inside the negative and then sponged on some Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. After that dried I added some Mama Elephant Lemongrass Pigment Ink over the White and used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying. Here is what it looked like while I was working on it…

Next I used the Concord & 9th Lucky Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the I’m Super and Because… in Versa-Mark. I added some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it. My black panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then die cut the thin lucky from two pieces of Lemon Lime along with some of the stars. The two luckies are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then over the sponged lucky with Multi-Matte Medium. The stars are added randomly and the card is done! I love the look of the sponged lucky with the die cut in the middle , it looks a little like neon!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Design Team and that you are inspired to make a card and send it off to someone that needs a little reminder of how lucky you are to have them in your life!! I know exactly who I’m giving this one to! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on April 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one!

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

Another rainy day. It was so foggy too in the morning when I headed over to the Store, again, because of our close proximity to the water I guess. Renee and I had a quiet project filled day. I had to get two cards made and work on some other things. I left the Store around 4:00 to come home and meet Jim. We worked on more of the crafty project and had some Chinese for dinner. Always a nice way to end the day with a good friend! Today, I have to get ready for tomorrow’s Wedding card and gift box class. That should be fun! 😀

Without further ado here is this week’s Sketch for the Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I started my card by cutting a piece of the Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper and adhering it to a piece of Fun Foam and tying a piece of May Arts Natural Twine around the top. Then I used E-Z Runner Ultra Strong to adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed the hello from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Tropical Sea and adhered it to the patterned paper. My Birthday is heat embossed with more White onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I flagged the bottom, adhered a strip of Candied Yam to the top and then used a little more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered it under the twine. A nice simple Birthday card! I love that hello stamp, it has a little bit of a stitched look to it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! I’ll be back at 11:00AM with a second post for you today! Be sure and come back!

Fab Friday 109

Fab Friday 109

Oh yes, it’s Friday and an actual one for me! I did have a nice day at the Store, my Parents stopped by in the morning and some peeps came in to pick up their orders. My Parents were out at my Brother’s watching the kiddies so I had to fend for myself for dinner, pancakes it was! LOL! We had Thirsty Thursday at my house and Heather and Brian came by. We had a good laugh and it was nice to catch up with Brian, he has been so busy lately we don’t get to see him. I spoke to Jim on the phone for a while, he’s getting ready for his company this weekend. Today I have a haircut in the morning and then another fun filled day at the Store! 😀

What makes today an even better Friday, why it’s time for another Fab Friday sketch…

I played with some more new Concord & 9th goodies! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Solar White 80lb, I stamped the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background Stamp in Ballet Slippers and adhered the panel to the card base. I added a piece of Ice Gold Curios Metallic with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner along with a strip of Gold Glitter Card to the background. The flower and greetings are from the Concord & 9th Lily Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the Lily in Black Licorice using my MISTI so I could get a nice bold impression by double stamping it. The center is more Ballet Slippers and the flower is cut out with Scissors. My thinking of is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black and that is adhered to the panel. I stamped the you in more Black Licorice and also used my scissors to cut it out. Some 3D Foam Squares adhere the Lily and you to the card and it’s done! No one likes to make a sympathy card but I think this would make a very nice one. I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! There is some more inspiration for you over on the BLOG and we hope to see your creation in the gallery! Thank you for taking some time to come and see me today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Hello! Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day indeed! It got up into the mid-sixties with plenty of sun! I made sure that I stepped outside quite a few times while I was at the Store! I got in a bunch of new Concord & 9th, got it all checked in and played with some of it too! After work I had dinner with my Parents and came home and cleaned a little. My friend Sue came by and so did Heather and George. A bunch of friends on a Wednesday night, who could ask for anything more?! Today Renee leaves for her little scrapbooking adventure to PA with a bunch of the ladies so I’ll be manning the Store for a few days! 😀

One of the cards that I made yesterday is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

A nice layered sketch! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Die to cut out a piece of Illustrated Faith 12×12 Paper. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up I heat embossed the XO from the Concord & 9th Love Notes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in Gold onto a strip of Black with both ends flagged. I hid the adhesive behind the black strip and adhered the vellum under it. The flower is from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Ballet Slippers and Bubblegum. I used my Scissors to cut it out and adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. It needed a little Sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink, Pink Blush and Gold Sequins. I love that flower, so nice and simple! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for visiting with me! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂

Another rainy day, well it actually poured in the morning and then just drizzled for the remainder. The weather was gloomy but I had a bright sunny time at the Store. We got a few visitors and Renee and I had a good laugh as we always do! I left around 4:30 to come home and meet Jim. He was already cooking when I arrived. We had a nice dinner, saw Taylor, went over and visited with my Parents and then worked on the crafty project. It’s coming along! I have some Concord & 9th arriving at the Store today! New goodies! Can’t wait to play! 😀

I have a little card to share with you today for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

Funnily enough I actually made this card three week’s ago, it helps to pay attention when checking the Design Team group to see what the next challenge is! LOL! To start my card I stamped the images from the Hero Arts Welcome Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and used my Copics to color them in. The greeting is cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies and the images with the Coordinating Hero Arts Welcome Home Frame Cuts. To my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of Chinese Red that I flagged both ends on. My background is a piece of 48lb Vellum, I heat embossed the Hero Arts Wood Floor Bold Prints Background in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder.  The images and greeting are adhered to the Vellum with 3D Foam Squares and then I adhered the Vellum to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Apparently I really do like that Welcome Home Set, I have gotten a ton of use out of it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has dome and let’s see yours in the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

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! 🙂
