Pearlescent Pineapple – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello again! I’m back with post number two for today! It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. Be sure and stop by there too!

The card that I created uses the Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it onto a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. To color in the image I used my FineTec Pearl Watercolors and an Aquawash Brush. After it dried I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out along with the greeting that is heat embossed onto a piece of White Gold Curious Metallic with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. The pineapple and greeting are adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with another piece of White Gold Metallic that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers 3D Woven Embossing Folder. I do love the Pearl Watercolors, so nice and subtle. The pictures doesn’t do them justice, they look so much better in real life!

I hope that you like the card for my September Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on September 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you! Thanks for stopping by!

Dropping You A Lime

Dropping You A Lime

A little bit of a late start this lovely Sunday morning! I have grown to enjoy a lazy day on Sunday’s. Yesterday I had a great time with Kim in Manhattan! I met her at our friend’s Jason & Bev’s apartment, she is dog sitting for them. We had a little coffee on the deck and then went out for breakfast. From there we wandered around for a while. No particular place to go just wandering. After our outing we went back to the apartment and had a drink before heading to a Cuban restaurant for dinner and that was delicious! Nothing like an authentic place and there are so many in the city! I got the 8:12 train back out the Island and then just relaxed before calling it a night! I did take a few pictures once I got Penn Station of the Empire State Building. It was only white lights but it still looks cool!

I think that I will try and get a little more cleaning done today, have to have a somewhat productive day! 😀

I have a fun simple stamped background card to share with you today! I used the Concord & 9th Orange You Sweet Photopolymer Stamp Set with Black Licorice and Freshly Curt Grass Ink to create my background on a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the greeting I heat embossed it on a strip of Black 110lb Card Stock and adhered it randomly onto the card with Black 3D Foam Squares. That’s it… done! Quick, simple and fun! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you for visiting and wish you a simply amazing Sunday! 🙂

Cherry on Top

Cherry on Top

The weekend kinda snuck up on me! LOL! I did have a nice day yesterday, got some more purging done. I know you are thinking boy he must have a lot of crap and yes, you would be correct! LOL! I also ran to BJ’s with Heather and Steph in the afternoon and had a little dinner with my Parents. Today I’m off to Manhattan to visit my friend Kim. I haven’t been to the city in forever! It will be good to be back in! 😀

I had so much fun paying with the Concord & 9th Here’s the Scoop Set yesterday that I made another card using it today! I stamped the sundae onto a piece pf Solar White 80lb Card Stock and used my Copics to color it in. The Coordinating Die cut it out. I wanted to put some Clear Heat Embossing onto the bowl and cherry so I used a Versa-Marker and some Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder for that. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and I stamped the greetings from the same set in Memento Tuxedo Black using my Mini MISTI. Love the bottom greeting and the clever little you with the arrow pointing to the cherry! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for stopping by and have a superb Saturday! 🙂

Sprinkled Sundae – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Sprinkled Sundae – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Hi peeps and a happy Friday to you all! I spent the morning yesterday doing more purging! Three bags of trash and a bag of shredding! I think that I will do more of that today, feels so good! Last night was Thirsty Thursday and a good time as always! What’s on your agenda for today?! 😀

I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! For the next two Friday’s we will be featuring a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the Fun Here’s the Scoop Stamps and Dies!

One of my friends always complains that there are no greetings inside my cards, so I decided that I’d make one with the image inside! To start my card I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 5″ x10″ and folded it in half. The outside front panel is stamped with the Sprinkles Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp using my MISTI and Merman and Sunflower Ink. I then place the Here’s the Scoop Die on the front and ran it through my Big Shot to cut out the negative from the front panel. Back into my MISTI so that I could line up the sundae from the Here’s the Scoop Set and stamp it in Memento Tuxedo Black. It’s colored in with Copics to coordinate with the sprinkles! My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 28lb Vellum and that is adhered to the inside of the front of the card with Vellum Adhesive. Love the little peekaboo of the fun sundae from the front of the card through the Vellum! There, now there is something even better than a greeting inside!

I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Concord & 9th! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of talented Teammate’s projects! I thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Friday! 🙂

Stars Love Galaxy

Stars Love Galaxy

I had an actual lazy Sunday! I stayed in bed late, didn’t really do much of anything but watch TV. Taylor came by for a little while after she got off of work. I did make a card for today and that was my day. Today I will be spending lots of time in front of the computer, my to-do list just keeps getting longer! 😀

I felt like doing a little ink blending yesterday and thats where this card started. I did that ink blending on a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock with Hero Arts Navy, Grape Juice and Charcoal Ink using my Mini Ink Blending Tool. It’s spattered with Heidi Swapp White and Tinsel Color Shine and dried with my Heat Tool. I used the Hero Arts Milky Way Fancy Die to cut out a piece of Shadow Curious Metallic Card Stock and as I was taking out the middle I thought that it would actually look pretty cool on the card instead of the outside. My sentiment is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto the die cut and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. For some sparkly stars I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and that finished the card. I actually do love the inside of the die cut galaxy. It looks like a swirly space oddity! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for starting another week off with me! Have an absolutely awesome Monday! 🙂

Golden Balloons – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Golden Balloons – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Hi there! I’m back with post number two for today! I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! For the next three Friday’s we will be featuring a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the awesome Happy Balloons Stamps and Dies!

Any of you that know me know that I love a little heat embossing on Vellum! I thought that the balloons would look pretty cool done that way! Three of the balloons from the Happy Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set are heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto 65lb Vellum. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. They are adhered to each other and my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Multi-Matte Medium that is strategically placed! My greeting is also heat embossed in Gold onto a piece of Solar White 110lb that is cut out with the banner die from the set. I added some Gold Thread to the balloons and then adhered the greeting banner to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins add a bit more sparkle and the card is done! Isn’t that a fun stamp set and I love the that the overlapped balloons sort of make a heart!

I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Concord & 9th! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of talented Teammate’s projects! I thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Friday! 🙂

Fab Friday 119

Fab Friday 119

It’s Friday already?! That was another quick week! I had a fun day with my friend Sue. We worked on Etsy stuff and went out to have some lunch. There was a little stop at Marshall’s before we headed back to her house to finish up a little more stuff before I headed home. Last night we had Thirsty Thursday at Heather’s. Stephanie was there and Taylor stopped by for a few. This morning, more things to cross off my to-do list! 😀

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

I got my August My Monthly Hero Kit and had to have a little play! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. I used the large die from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit to cut out a piece of Black 110lb. The little boy on the moon is heat embossed in Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder onto another piece of Black 110lb and cut out with the Coordinating Die. I adhered the large Black die cut to the card with Black 3D Foam Squares and the boy on the moon with E-Z Runner. My greeting is also from the set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Black Sparkle Embossing Powder onto another piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. I flagged the right side and used a few more Black 3D Foam Squares to adhere it to the card. For some more sparkle I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins! I love the August Hero Kit, so much fun! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG and let’s see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by this morning! I’ll be back on a little while with another post for you! Until then have a fabulous Friday morning! 🙂

SIP Challenge 112 – Travel!

SIP Challenge 112 – Travel!

Another fun filled Monday! LOL! I did get some things done and helped out a few friends in the morning too! We had an extra early Thirsty Thursday last night over at Heather’s! Stephanie was there and George joined us too! We always have such a good time laughing and catching up! This morning I have to get working on my to-do list for the week! I have been putting off way too much stuff! 😀

So it’s Tuesday and what does that mean?! Well, it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I’m always looking for a reason to use that Eiffel Tower Die from Hero and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! To start my card I die cut the Hero Arts PaperLayering Eiffel Tower from a piece of Gold Mirror Card. I used a die from the June 2016 My Monthly Hero Kit to cut out a plane from a piece of Silver Glitter Card Stock. They are positioned onto a piece of Black 110lb so that I knew where to heat emboss my sentiment, also from the Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero Kit, in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder. The black panel is adhered to a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then the Eiffel Tower and plane are adhered with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. It needed a little more sparkle so I added Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins! I do really love that Eiffel Tower and the plane too! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by today! Have an excellent Tuesday! 🙂

Cupcakes & Sprinkles

Cupcakes & Sprinkles

Yay for the weekend! I had a pretty busy day yesterday. Got my haircut in the morning and spoke to my friend Greg for a little while. I went over and saw Heather, we had lunch and I ran a few errands. The evening was quiet, just a little TV. Today it’s supposed to be rainy so maybe some crafty time?! Good way to spend a rainy day! 😀

I have another card to share with you today that uses the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Turnabout Set! The background is stamped with it using my MISTI with Freshly Cut Grass and Merman Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. I adhered the trimmed piece to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The cupcakes are stamped in Black Licorice for the outline and the same two ink colors to fill them in. My tag is cut out from a piece of Mermaid Card Stock with the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Tag Dies along with the cupcakes. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto the bottom of the tag. I tied a piece of Natural Green Twine through the top and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The cupcakes are adhered with 3D Foam Squares and a little drop of Multi-Matte Medium holds the twine in place! I’m loving that Sprinkles Turnabout, confetti sprinkles in any colors! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you so much for visiting! Have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

Sprinkled with Love – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Sprinkled with Love – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Happy, happy Friday peeps! Yes, another beautiful day, and yes I spent a good part of it outside. The morning was spent catching up on things around the house, I do need to be somewhat productive! It was a quiet day all in all. I finished the evening off by watching Collateral Beauty, not the best movie I have seen but not terrible. It’s going to be cooler today but no rain so we should be ok for the day! 😀

I have the extreme pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! For the next four Friday’s we will be featuring a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the fantastic Sprinkles Turnabout Stamps and the Sprinkles Tag Dies!

As soon as I saw the Sprinkled with Love greeting in the set I knew just what I was going to do! I started my card by using the Sprinkles Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp to heat emboss in Hero Arts Gold and stamp in Ballet Slippers, Peachy Keen and Bubblegum Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. It’s trimmed to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhered to a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I used the solid heart die from the Heartstrings Dies and the small heart from the Sprinkles Dies to cut out a large and two small hearts from a piece of Guava. I heat embossed the sprinkles in Hero Arts Gold and White Embossing Powder and the greeting in White onto the hearts. They are then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Those Turnabout Stamps are just so cool and this one is no exception! Love it along with the greeting! I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Concord & 9th! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of talented Teammate’s projects! I thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
