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! πŸ˜€

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! πŸ™‚

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! πŸ˜€

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! πŸ™‚

It has become seriously cold here! I woke up to 20 degrees this morning and lots of wind! Poor Cali was not happy on her walk this morning and neither was I! LOL! Yesterday I ran some errands then met up with Heather and Steph after dinner so that they could go and vote for Fire Commissioner. Heather and I stopped by to see Brian and Kim’s house, they are expanding it out to the side and up. It was pretty neat to see the construction, the shell went up really fast! When I got back home Taylor was here snuggling with Cali. Her and I ran a few more errands and then I called it a night. Not sure what I’m up to this morning but I know there will be some laundry in there somewhere! πŸ˜€

I did a little FaceTime crafting with Andrea yesterday and made my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I started my card by reaching for the Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit. The vase is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card, colored in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and cut out with the Coordinating Die. I used the lattice window die to cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card. For my background I spattered some Heidi Swapp Gold and Teal Color Shine onto a piece of Desert Storm 80lb and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The two strips of patterned paper are from the DCWV Mariposa 12×12 Paper Pad. I heat embossed my greeting in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on the teal strip and flagged both ends of the butterfly strip before adhering them to the card. Some Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive hold the lattice window in place and a little 3M Foam Tape secures the vase. All that was left to do was to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze and Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love the December My Monthly Hero Kit, so many fun things to use in it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

SIP Challenge 129 – Colors!

SIP Challenge 129 – Colors!

I’m late this morning and I apologize! I woke up at 4:00AM with a insanely bad migraine, so bad I couldn’t even lie or sit down. Thankfully it’s a lot better now. Yesterday was fun with Daniel and Tristan, they are so good and easy to watch, plus it’s nice to get to spend the extra time with them! I went right over to Jim’s last night so we could fix the Christmas lights on the house and have dinner. He whipped up a meatloaf, sautΓ©ed string beans and sweet potato, all delicious as usual! Now that my head is feeling a little better I need to get my butt in gear! πŸ˜€

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

My card has a ton of heat embossing on it, you know that’s one of my favorite things to do! The background is a piece of Chili Pepper Card Stock with the Concord & 9th Plaid Background Photopolymer Stamp heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. My postage stamp is from the Concord & 9th Love You So Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the dots in more Gold and the LOVE in Recollections Red Tinsel Embossing Powder. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die. The background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the postage stamp with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All in all a pretty simple card to make! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge!

A chilly good day to you! It’s definitely feeing like Winter here today. Chilly but sunny. I managed to get most of my list accomplished yesterday. Jim came by and we had a nice dinner and then watched TV. This morning I’m at his house waiting for the dishwasher repair guy to come. It’s Thursday so I’ll get to see the girls later! πŸ˜€

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you. Before we get to it I want thank Jen M for choosing me for her Prince for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE! Now for this week’s sketch…

I started my card by stamping the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background Stamp onto a piece of Solar White 110lb with Tide Pool Ink. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder using the Hero Arts Happy Happy Christmas Wood Mount Stamp. I wanted some gold around the edge of the card base so I took my Versa-Mark Pad and pressed it along the bottom and left edge. Some more Gold Embossing Powder is added and heat set. My background is then adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins are added for extra sparkle and the card is done! Love the simplicity and the gold with the teal! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! πŸ™‚

A somewhat gloomy day here yesterday weather wise but those are good days to get stuff done! I completed a bunch of things in the morning, including getting some gifts ordered. Taylor came by around 5:00 and took Cali over to my Parent’s to have dinner with them. I ran out to a few stores with Heather and got some more gifts out of the way. Heather made a quick dinner and when I got home Cali was over at my Parent’s because my Mum didn’t like that she was alone! I think someone really likes the little dog! This morning I have some cleaning to do and then Jim will be by later for dinner. πŸ˜€

I squeezed in a card lasst night and it’s for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I definitely took a simple approach! I started by stamping the Hero Arts Snowy Scene Wood Mount Stamp in Hero Arts Lilac to Grape Purple Ombre Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and trimming it so it had no border. It’s adhered to another piece of Solar White 80lb with a piece of Silver Glitter Card adhered on the left. The panel is then added to a card base of Solar white 110lb Card Stock with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Poster Christmas Carols Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum. I used some Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhered to the card. I still love that Snowy Scene stamp, it’s perfect for making a quick card! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! You can see more inspiration over on the BLOG and be sure to share your card with us in the gallery!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you are all ready for your company today and that your day will be filled with family and friends! I had a very busy day yesterday jam packed with errands, I went to Lowe’s, Home Depot, IKEA, Target and the Dollar Store! Taylor was along for some company which was nice! Last night I went over to see Brian and Kim with Heather and then Andrew stopped by for a bit. I’ll be heading out to my Brother’s in a little while, that will be fun! πŸ˜€

Today I have a card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches to share with you…

I started the card by using the Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies to cut out a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. The topper is cut from a piece of Silver Glitter Card. They are adhered to a piece of Classic Cherry that is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on a piece of 65lb Vellum. I added three Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins and then hid some Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape behind them and adhered it to the card. Pretty simple but still a fun card!

SIP Challenge 126 – Grateful, Thankful, Blessed!

A quiet Monday! Who could ask for anything more?! I did get a few things done around the house and had dinner with the ‘rents. This morning I’m off to Manhattan to visit my friend Anna at The Ink Pad! It has been way too long since I have seen her and the shop! Should be a fun day!! πŸ˜€

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

I have been seeing a lot of cards with colored pencil on dark cardstock lately so I needed to give it a go! To create my background I stamped the leaf from the Simon Says Stamp One with Nature Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed them with Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder onto Battleship Gray. I used my Prismacolor Pencils to color the leaves in using two shades of a color for each one. My greeting is cut three times from more Battleship Gray using a die from the Simon Says Stamp with Hero Arts StampTember Thanksgiving Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the top one with more Platinum Embossing Powder and then adhered it to the two others and a strip of Vellum with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The Vellum is then adhered around the back of the background and then to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Platinum Sequins for extra bling and the card is finished! Now I know why I have seen so many cards like this, love the look of the pencil on the dark card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!

Happy Friday! I had a very productive day yesterday while waiting for the new door to be installed at Jim’s house. I caught up on all of my Blog comments, all 100 of them! And yes, that took all day! LOL! When Jim came home we ran to the grocery store and then I helped him make stuffing for his lunch at work today. We also made some Shoo-Fly Pies using my Grandmother’s recipe and they came out really good! On my way home I stopped by Heather’s for a little Thirsty Thursday! Always good to see my ladies! Today I want to get some things done but as you can see by late post the morning isn’t going as planned! πŸ˜€

I did squeeze in a quick card this morning using the October My Monthly Hero Kit. To start the card I cut out a piece of Soft Sky with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. The images are all from the Hero Arts October My Monthly Hero Kit and are stamped in Black. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color in the eskimo and the ice. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of Pacific Point that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wave 3D Embossing Folder. A strip of Galvanized Curious Metallic goes down the left side and then the circle is adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins finish the card! I love the images in the Kit, they are much easier to color in with pencils too! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you for coming by for a visit and hope that you have a fabulous weekend! πŸ™‚

Another busy day, I need them! I had a bunch of stuff to get through in the morning. Picked up Dad from dropping off his car at Ford yet again. Stephanie came by for a little bit, always nice to get a little visit in the middle of the day! I ran to the supermarket to pick up some stuff for dinner. Jim came by after work and we ran to Old Navy so he could get a little Christmas shopping done. We came back to my house and I made dinner and then we finished the evening with a little TV. I”l be over at Jim’s today so that they can come and install the new door on the side of the house. I’m going to get all caught up on my blog comments while I’m there!! πŸ˜€

I actually did a little FaceTime crafting with Andrea and made my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

The first thing that I did was to stamp the ornaments from the Sunny Studio Holiday Style Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sugarplum using my Mini MISTI. The second layer is stamped in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. My ornament tops are heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut the ornaments and tops out and set them aside. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped the pine branches from the same set in Noble Fir and JalapeΓ±o in the upper left and lower right corners. Back into the MISTI to stamp the greeting in Sugarplum. Next the ornaments are adhered with 3M Foam Tape and a few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Silver Sequins complete the card! I’m loving the Holiday Style Set! Definitely will get a lot of use this year! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for stopping by!
