Fab Friday 129

Fab Friday 129

Ahh… Friday! I had quite the busy day yesterday and I did manage to get a lot accomplished! Got a few orders packed up and sent out, spoke to a few peeps, ran some errands. Jim came by after work and we had Zorn’s for dinner and then watched TV. This morning I have some crafty projects to work on and a few other things to take care of. I think that I’ll see if I can go into Manhattan on Sunday and see my friend Kim, I need a little city trip and it’s supposed to be nice! ๐Ÿ˜€

Every other week we have a new Fab Friday challenge and it’s one of those weeks! Our inspiration this time is a sketch…

I wanted to do a somewhat one layer card so I took out some Grey 110lb Card Stock and cut it so I could piece it back together by adhering it to a piece of Solar White 80lb. Onto that I stamped the outline rose and leaf images from the Hero Arts Color Layering Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Granite. In the bottom right corner I heat embossed a greeting from the set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder and then adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The heart die cut is from the Hero Arts January My Monthly Hero Kit and is cut from a piece of Gold Mirror Card. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to add it to the card. I do love the subtle roses in the background and the that delicate heart is so neat! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch 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 to see me today! Have a fabulous Friday and a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

SIP Challenge 133 – Sketch!

SIP Challenge 133 – Sketch!

Well, that was a quick Monday! I did a few things around the house in the morning and then went out with Heather to run a some errands. She made us lunch at her house, a nice salad and grilled turkey and cheese sandwich. When I got back the kids were at my Parent’s so I went and saw them for a little while. The evening was finished off with a little Hawaii Five-O on Netflix! I need the nice warm scenery! LOL! I have a few things to do this morning and then later I’ll head over to Jim’s so we can put his Mum’s den back together! ๐Ÿ˜€

Tuesday and time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Blog…

A nice simple sketch! I pulled out my Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy Photopolymer Stamp Set and started by using my Mini MISTi to stamp the flower inย  Bubble Gum, Crimson Hybrid and Raspberry Jam Ink. The coordinating Die cuts it out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I stamped a stem in Moss Hybrid and cut that out with the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies. For my background I stamped the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Stamp in Charcoal onto a piece of Grey Card Stock. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Across the card is a piece of Pluto Stardream Metallic and over that I used some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhere the circle. The flower is adhered with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting its from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb. That is adhered with more 3M Foam Tape to the circle. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Charcoal Sequins finish the card! Love the bold pop of red against the white and gray! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! The rest of the Team has some great cards to inspire you over on the BLOG and we hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for visiting with me today!

Paper Craft Crew 275

Well, either it’s not as cold as it has been or I’m finally becoming immune to it! LOL! I don’t think that I will ever become immune to the cold, just not my kind of weather! It was a little warmer yesterday, got up into the 30’s which melted a teeny bit of the snow. I ran my errands in the morning and did a little cleaning too. Jim and I went to see Star Wars – The Last Jedi in the evening and it was really good. This morning I’m off to watch Daniel and Tristan again! ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s Wednesday and time for a new sketch from the Paper Craft Crew

Keeping with my simple cards I did a one layer one today! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I heat embossed the brushstrokes and thank you from the Concord & 9th Painted Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. On a diagonal across the lower half of the card I added a piece of Gold Sparkle Washi Tape. It needed a little something more so I took out my Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and added just a few for a some bling. Another super simple but easy to mass produce card! The gold heat embossing makes it a little more special don’t you think?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

I have so many from them so I went back through my emails and found my very first order from August of 2015! Saving all of those emails finally paid off! LOL! Here is this month’s challenge badge…

The very first set that I got was the Being Classy Photopolymer Stamp Set! My card is nice and simple and uses just the stamp set and Coordinating Dies! I stamped the thoughtful in Fresh Lavender, Grape Soda and Sugarplum onto card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with my MISIT. The you’re is stamped in Sugarplum at the top. On another piece of Solar White 110lb I stamped the thoughtful again in Sugarplum and Versa-Mark. It’s then heat embossed with Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder and cut out with the Coordinating Die three times. The dies cuts are adhered to each other and to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Another very simple but fun and easy to mass produce card!

SIP Challenge 132 – Cake Walk!

SIP Challenge 132 – Cake Walk!

Hello! I missed yesterday I know! I forgot that I was watching Daniel and Tristan and thought that I would have time to make a card in the morning! Oops! I’ll make up for it today as I will have another post at 11:00! I had a nice day with the kiddos, they are always so much fun and I really enjoy getting to spend time with them each week. Daniel was focused on playing Mario on his hi-Pad and Tristan and spent the better part of the morning dancing! LOL! She loves to listen to music! When I got home I watched a little TV, had dinner and then hung out with Taylor for a bit. I also spoke to my friend Greg in Indianan for a while, always good to catch up with him! I have a bunch of things to get done this morning and then Jim and I are going to see Star Wars tonight! ๐Ÿ˜€

The first post of this double post Tuesday is for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I wanted to do a little bit of a masculine spin on my card! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the sprinkles from the Essentials by Ellen with Concord & 9th Sweet Sprinkles Photopolymer Stamp Setย stamped in Doe and Fish Tank using my MISTI. I stamped the cupcake in the same colors. Using my MISTI made it easy for me to re-stamp the frosted part in Versa-Mark so that I could heat emboss it with some Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder. The Coordinating Dies cut them out and the cupcake is adhered to my card base with 3M Foam Tape. A simple sweet card with a masculine spin! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Cake Walk Challenge! There is a lot more inspiration over on the BLOG and we hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by this morning! I’ll see you back here at 11:00, until then enjoy your morning! ๐Ÿ™‚

Did you know that I moved to Antarctica?! Me either but that’s exactly what it feels like here! I woke up to 12 degrees and it hasn’t been above 25 in over a week! Oh how I love the Winter… NOT! To make things even more fun we are to get some snow tomorrow. No thanks! I did have a productive day yesterday, I went over to Jim’s in the morning and we undecorated his house and had lunch. I was back home by 3:00 and took down Christmas at my place too. Today I have some laundry to do and cleaning, all things that can be done without going outside! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s Wednesday and time for a new challenge over on the Paper Craft Crew blog…

I have had the Concord & 9th Dahlia Turnabout Stamp for a while and I finally inked it up to make today’s card! Using My MISTI and someย Minty Fresh, Merman, Peacock and Hippo Ink to stamp it onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. The greeting is from the same set, I stamped it in Black Licorice and then offset it and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder. The panel is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For a little sparkle, some Pretty Pink Posh Platinum Sequins and a few Basic Jewels Rhinestones are added to the centers of the larger ones!

SIP Challenge 131 – Emboss It!

Hey there, remember me?! I have been MIA for a little bit over the Holidays. I just lost my Mojo and didn’t make a card for about two weeks!! That’s the longest I think I have ever gone. Plus I think that I just needed a break after five years of almost daily posts. Hopefully I will get back into the swing of things! Oh, Happy New Year!! Can’t believe that 2017 is done! I did have a good year and a wonderful time over the Holidays! I hope that all of you are doing great and that your year is off to a great start! ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s Tuesday and time for the first Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge of 2018…

I used a new to me stamp set that I have wanted for a while, it was a little prezzie from Jim! To start I heat embossed that gorgeous leaf from the Neat & Tangled Oak Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card. I colored it in using a Light Green Zig Clean Color Brush Pen and a Waterbrush. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of Solar White 80lb that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wave 3D Embossing Folder. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold onto a strip of Solar White 80lb. I added the leaf and greeting with 3M Foam Tape and a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Sparkling Clear Sequins completes the card. I do love that leaf especially watercolored! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

United We Flourish – Ellen Hutson with Concord & 9th!

United We Flourish – Ellen Hutson with Concord & 9th!

Hello! I’m honored today to be a part of the United We Flourish Release Blog Hop from Ellen Hutson in collaboration with Concord & 9th! These stamps and dies are designed by Concord & 9th and are available exclusively from Ellen Hutson! The set is called Sweet Sprinkles and is a fantastic set for making cards for all sorts cards for different occasions! I paired the set with another great one from Concord & 9th, the Sprinkles Turnabout.

I started my card by stamping the Sprinkles Turnabout Stamp in Doe Ink using my MISTI onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. I only stamped it for two turns. Next I stamped the ice cream cone in Doe and the ice cream in Minty Fresh with the oh so sweet stamped in Doe inside the ice cream scoop. They are from the Sweet Sprinkles Set and are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. For the strip I stamped the smaller sprinkles, also from the Sweet Sprinkles Set in Minty Fresh. I wanted a strip to go behind it that matched my card perfectly so I swiped my Doe Ink Pad across another piece of Solar White 80lb. The background and two strips are adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used 3M Foam Tape to adhered my ice cream and added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to the ice cream for a little sparkle! A sweet simple card, great for a birthday or just about any other occasion! I hope that you like my card for the Ellen Hutson with Concord & 9th United We Flourish Blog Hop!

Kind Hearts – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Kind Hearts – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Yay for Friday! Most of the snow is still here because it was freezing yesterday. I ran over to see Heather in the morning, she went in late to work and had her work Holiday party last night so there was some outfit choosing to be done! When I got back home in the afternoon I did a few things around the house including a little laundry. Taylor stopped by after dinner and we ran some errands. I made marshmallow snowmen that will be added to eggnog martinis for the party on Saturday. Today I will be at Jim’s helping get the house ready for said party. A busy but fun day! ๐Ÿ˜€

I have the pleasure of Guest Designing for Concord & 9th again this month! It’s Feature Friday and this week we are focusing on the Polkadot Turnabout Stamp!

I have also used the Quilted Heart Die on my card which is a FREE gift with any $60 purchase from them this month! To create my background I heat embossed the Polkadot Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of 43lb Vellum. I slightly offset the stamp in my MISTI so that the polkadots wouldn’t be perfectly lined up. My hearts are cut from Classic Cherry using the Quilted Heart Die and the greeting using the Kind Card Frame Add-On Die. I adhered the hearts to the background with E-Z Runner and the kind with Multi-Matte Medium. A little more E-Z Runner and Multi-Matte Medium behind the die cuts adheres the background to my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Isn’t that Polkadot Turnabout fun and the Quilted Heart is fantastic! I hope that you like my Guest Designer Card for this week’s Concord & 9th Feature Friday post! Thank you so much for coming by! Have a fantastic Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Freshly Made Sketches 317

Freshly Made Sketches 317

Well, I woke up to 3 inches of snow this morning! No thanks! LOL! It was so windy and cold here yesterday too! Is it too early to start complaining that I can’t wait for Spring?! Despite the frigid day I still got a lot done. Last night we had an early Thirsty Thursday at my house, Heather was a little tipsy so I drove her home and then took her car over to her this morning. I’ll be running more errands and checking more things off my to-do list today! ๐Ÿ˜€

I managed to get a card made this morning for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

I wanted to use the December My Monthly Hero Kit again. First I used the Hero Arts City Skyline Fancy Die, an add-on, to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Card. I adhered it to a piece of Black 110lb that I rounded the corners on with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. The moon and the starts are from the Stamp Set included and are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a strip of the Gold Glitter Card and then adhered my panel with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. My greeting is also from the Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Blue Jay. A few Black 3D Foam Squares hold it in place. The bottom looked a little plain so I added a few Nautical Sparkle and Brushed Gold Sequins along with some dots with my Gold Signo Gel Pen. Love that fun City Scape Die and the unusual greeting! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for your visit and I wish you all a super Thursday! ๐Ÿ™‚
