Fab Friday 115

I’m a little late this morning because I’m on country time! After my fun morning in the city yesterday I took the train out to Rockville Center and Jim picked me up at the station. We stopped back at his house, picked up the bags and headed for Waymart, PA. It took us about 3 1/2 hours to get here but was well worth the ride! This is my current view this morning…

It so peaceful and relaxing here, I can see why Jim likes is so much. We went down by the lake for a bit and just sat there…

Last night we sat by the fire pit and just looked up at the stars, you forget how many there are because out here you can see them all! Today, who knows but I’m sure it will be fun! 😀

Now I have a little bit of craftiness to share with you in the way of my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge…

I used the June My Monthly Hero Kit again! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Hero Arts Nesting Postage Stamp Dies to cut out a piece of Hello Honey for my background. On top of that is a strip of Mossy Meadow with the ends flagged and then a really thin strip of Black. My images and greeting are from the June My Monthly Hero Kit and are stamped in Black onto a piece of Tangelo Twist and that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner Ultra. That’s it! A nice simple card and I love those solid images! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to visit the Team BLOG and see the rest of the cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thanks for sharing in some of my day! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Happy Friday my peeps! My Thursday was good! I cleaned my apartment and ran a few errands. Jim came by around 5:00 and we went to grab a quick bite and then saw Wonder Woman. Pretty good flick! We got back to my house around 9:30 and Jim headed home and I went over for the last half of Thirsty Thursday. We had to run to the Vape Shop so that Steph could get some refills and we saw Taylor and her friends there. They were going to a local bar so we met them there for a bit and then called it a night. Who knows what today will bring, but it’s supposed to be nice weather, that’s always good! 😀

It’s a Fab Friday week and this time around we have some colors for you to work with…

I don’t have any of the new Stampin’ Up! colors so I improvised! All of my images and greeting are from the Simon Says Stamp Lovely Spring Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Black, Teal, Catkin, Rosie Cheeks and Hot Mama onto a piece of Solar White 80lb Card Stock. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Lemon Drop and Orchid Sequins to the flower centers and the card is finished! Super simple and I do really just like to stamp some images, that way you get to use all of that colored ink that you have! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and we hope to see yours in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by this morning, I’ll be back at 11:00am with my post for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th post! Hope you’ll come back! Until then enjoy your morning! 🙂

A happy Friday to you from mushy, wet New York! It rained all day yesterday. I stayed indoors, cleaned a little, did some laundry and watched a lot of TV! Taylor came by in the evening and we ran to Target quick. It’s supposed to continue raining today so I will have to find some more indoor activities to keep myself busy! 😀

It’s one of those week’s where we have a new Fab Friday challenge for you…

I had some fun with the Dotty Turnabout Stamp again! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used my MISTI and the Concord & 9th Dotty Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp. I stamped it three times, once in Grape Soda, once in Narwhal and then for the final one I heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. Across the middle is a strip of 48lb Vellum and a some Gold Mirror Card with the ends flagged. My globe and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Globe Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the globe in Grape Soda and the greeting in Narwhal. To cut it out I used the Coordinating Die to cut out the globe and then I cut out another piece of Gold Mirror Card with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. The globe is adhered to the Gold circle and then to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I just can’t get enough of that Dotty Turnabout Stamp, in fact I’ll be back in a little while with my Guest Designer Post for Concord & 9th with some more ways to use it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Check out the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s projects and let’s see your’s in the gallery!

A very happy Friday to you! I had another productive day yesterday. I did some cleaning, some laundry and played with Tristan and Daniel. We all had dinner together at my Parent’s. I came home for a bit and then went over to meet Heather and Stephanie at Brian & Kim’s for Thirsty Thursday. So good to see the peeps! This morning I’m going with Heather to drop off her car for inspection and then we are going to have some breakfast. A fun way to start the day!

This is one of two posts from me today! I’ll have another post shortly with a fun announcement!

It’s a Fab Friday this week and we have some colors to inspire you…

I got my May My Monthly Hero Kit the other day and these colors seemed to work perfectly with it! To start I used the Stencil in the Kit and some Blueprint Sketch and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink along with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add color to a piece of Solar White 80ob. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The mermaid is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics, I cut her out with the Coordinating Die along with some coral and seaweed from a piece of Calypso Coral. The greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. All of the die cuts are adhered to the circle and the circle is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Blue Lagoon and Amethyst Sequins and some Hero Arts Clear Gems finish the card! I do love that stenciled background, so easy and such a nice way to showcase the mermaid! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! We hope that you will visit the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to come back in a little bit for my second post for today! I’m pretty excited about it! Enjoy your Friday morning! 🙂

We had Tacos, I got to meet some of his peeps and we got all of the technology in the house straightened out! This morning I’m off to see the city to see my friend Mary and then have lunch with Kim! 😀

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

Oh yes, another stamped background! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Grape Soda, Juice Box, Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum and Freshly Cut Grass right onto the card base. Down the left side I adhered a piece of 48lb Vellum and a strip of Rose Chintz. My greeting is from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Bubblegum for the happy, the Mother’s Day is stamped in Freshly Cut Grass onto a banner that is stamped from the Lawn Fawn Bannertastic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Juice Box. I used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut out both and adhered them to the card with 3M Foam Tape and E-Z Runner. I love the simplicity of the card and the nice bright colors!

For some reason it felt like Friday yesterday, don’t know why! It was a little cooler today, no top down down on the way to the Store but I put the heat on and the top down on the way home! We had a quiet day at, a few people stopped by to crop and chat. After work I stopped by my Parent’s and the kiddies and my Brother were there. Jim came by around 6:30 and met Daniel, Tristan and my Brother. Daniel showed him the truck video that he was watching on YouTube and Tristan just smiled like she always does! We brought Winston home and went to Friendly’s for dinner and then came back to my house and watched Split. Quite the disturbing movie! Today apparently is Friday! LOL! More projects to be finished! 😀

It’s also a Fab Friday and this time we have some colors…

I substituted some colors and so can you! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the flower cluster from the Concord & 9th You’re My Person Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice onto my card base. I love the set because there are fill-in stamps for all of the flowers and leaves. I stamped them in Grape Soda, Merman, Peachy Keen and Jalapeño. The lucky is cut from 48lb Vellum and Deep Blue using the Concord & 9th Lucky Die. I adhered the Deep Blue to the Vellum with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then adhered it to the card with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. The rest of my greeting is from the stamp set and is again stamped in Black Licorice and adhered with more Clear Foam Tape. Love that flower image and the greeting! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! check out the rest of the Team’s card and enter yours in the gallery by stopping by the BLOG! Thanks for coming by today!

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! 🙂

Yay for Friday! We had a nice chilly day again, all of the snow is still here! The Store was filled with people taking the Card Class and for the evening class my friend Jim stopped by. He even made a card and I was really impressed! He’s a natural! After work we came back to my house for a little TV. Today I have a morning Card Class and the I have to get working on more classes. I have fallen behind in my classes and need to get back to them!

My card for today is for the Fab Friday color challenge…

I have really been into the one layer cards lately so I made another one! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the images are from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the large butterfly in Butter Bar and Fresh Peach using my Mini MISTI, the body is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. The smaller butterflies are stamped in Butter Bar, Fresh Peach and Soft Apricot. I put the card back in the MISTI and stamped the greeting from the Concord & 9th Happy Words Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Julep. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Marigold and Tangerine Sequins for a little sparkle. I love to color but there is still nothing like just stamping some images on a card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Make sure you stop by the BLOG and check out my other Teammate’s cards and lets see what you do with the colors!

Ahhh… Friday! Still my favorite day of the week! I did feel like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz yesterday, it was so incredibly windy! You could actually lean into the wind and not fall over! I had my Pop-Up Box card class at the Store yesterday, a good time as always! Renee left a little early to go and have dinner with her daughter and I had dinner with Daniel and my Parents when I got home. My friend Jim came by and we watched TV and had a nice relaxing evening. I really do need to plan a trip into Manhattan but I think I will wait until the weather gets a little warmer!

Today I have my card for the Fab Friday challenge to share with you…

My card is nice and simple! I started with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My little bit of embossed gold sticking out at the bottom is from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the leaf in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum and cut it out with the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaf Die. Across the card and on top of the leaf is a piece of Deep Blue with both ends flagged. Next up is a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Paper and that is adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My greeting is the Concord & 9th Kind Card Add-On Die, I cut it out of Deep Blue three times and cut off the ends. The die cuts are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and to the Glitter Card Stock with Multi-Matte Medium. I decided that I liked it nice and simple so I resisted the urge to add some sequins! I do love the simplicity of the card and we all could use as much kindness as we can get! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge. Make sure that you stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery!

TGIF! It was freezing and super windy down by the Store again today. I can’t wait for Sunday! I spent the morning working on projects and then got ready for Card Class. It was a fun group and we had a good time laughing and creating! Today I have a class in the morning and then no class tonight! I have a lot of things around the house that I want to get accomplished so I think I will sneak out a little early! 😀

Good news! It’s a Fab Friday week and we have a fun color challenge for you…

When I saw the colors I saw flowers and couldn’t get that out of my head! I used the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set but did a little something different with it! To create the flowers I used the Coordinating Frame Cuts to cut out pieces of Solar White 80lb and then used them as a stencil to add Soft Cantaloupe and Soft Apricot with my Mini Ink Blending Tool to another piece of Solar White 80lb. I then used my Heat Tool to make sure they were dry and stamped them with the images from the set in the same colors. They are then cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. I used a piece of Press n Seal to hold my arrangement in place and stamped the berries and greeting in Raspberry Jam and the leaves in Tide Pool onto another piece of Solar White 80lb. Next I created my card base out of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and covered the front in a piece of Tropical Sea. I adhered the stamped background panel to the card with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong and Fun Foam. All that was left to do was to adhere the flowers with 3D Foam Squares! Yes, that set is definitely in my top ten! I do like the sponged and stamped flowers, it’s a nice way to change up the set, almost makes it a layering set! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and take a look at the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thanks for visiting with me today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂
