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! I thank you so much for coming by today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

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! Thanks for spending some of your Friday with me! Have a fabulous day! 🙂

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! 🙂

Yay! It’s Friday! We had a busy week at the Stores. Today was Home Decor Project make up day and I had my Make-n-Take. There was also an impromptu Cricut class, I now have taught myself how to use one! LOL! When I got home I had a little dinner with the Parent’s and then watched some TV. Today, projects as always! Wouldn’t have it any other way! 😀

It’s a double good Friday because it’s time for another Fab Friday challenge…

I have been on a little bit of a Spring /Summer kick lately I know, but I can’t wait for the Winter to be over! The base for today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Bo Bunny Double Dot paper that I found while rummaging through one of Renee’s paper bins. I also cut a piece with the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Lawn Cut and adhered it across the bottom with some 3D Foam Squares. Next up I used Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade and my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add color to a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card. It’s cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies with the right side trimmed off before being adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. The flamingo is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Pink, Bubble Gum, Ultra Pink, Pale Tomato, White Dye and Intense Black using my Mini MISTI. I adhered him to the card with more 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Intense Black with the right side cut at an angle. I added a piece of Black and then adhered the greeting to the card with still more 3D Foam Squares. All that was left to do was to add some Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink and Holiday Shimmer Mix Sequins and the card is finished! I love the nice bold green with the bright yellow and orange behind the bright pink of the flamingo! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge!

Oh, it’s Friday! Which doesn’t mean much for me! LOL! The Pop-In for a Make and Take was a success at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! We had lots of fun and I sold a bunch of the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box and Put a Bow On It Lawn Cuts! I left the Store a little early to get to my Parent’s and see my little buddy Daniel! Oh how I have missed him! We played and ran up and down the stairs again. He’s such a funny little guy. After that it was off to see Heather for Thirsty Thursday. It was just the two of us which was great. I needed to be out of the house and to talk to my bestie! Today I want to get the cards for the rescheduled January Card Class finished and up on Facebook. I only have one left to do. Before we got to today’s card I want to take a minute and thank all of you for your kind words that you left for me yesterday. You guys are all amazing and I’m very lucky to have you in my life! 😀

It’s time now for the Fab Friday challenge…

As soon as I looked at the colors yesterday an idea popped into my head! My card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I took another piece and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Lawn Fawn Fresh Lavender and Merman Ink, blending to the two colors together and then making it into a banner. It’s adhered to the card with E-Z Runner leaving the ends so I could curl them a little. The hearts are all from the Concord & 9th Heart Smile Photopolymer Stamp Set. The large heart is stamped in Fresh Lavender using my Mini MISTI so I could stamp it more than once to get nice coverage. The love heart is stamped in Merman and the other hearts in both colors. I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Dies to cut them all out and adhered them to the card with 3M Foam Tape. A little scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is finished! I love the purple and light blue together and that Heartstrings Die is so neat! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! We hope to see your card in the gallery so stop by the BLOG and get some inspiration from the rest of the Team’s cards! Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Another relatively sunny day yesterday, but windy and cold too! Snow last night, not my favorite at all! Renee had an appointment to get her hair done in the morning so I was alone for a while. Not that I mind, I usually get a lot of things accomplished including a nice long chat with Andrea via FaceTime! I worked on my card for today too, I do love to just sit and color and Lawn Fawn is perfect for that! After work I had dinner with Mum & Dad, Mum made chili and it was delicious! When I got home Taylor was asleep on the couch, she has a pretty bad cold. When she woke up we took a ride over to Roosevelt Field Mall and then stopped at Target so that she could get some medicine. Today I want to get a lot of things done at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, we’ll see how that goes! 😀

I’m having a big sale over at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store for the rest of the week! Today all Lawn Fawn is 25% off! Use discount code CHANEW20174!

I think that all of the Design Team’s that I’m on are back! Today I have my card for the Fab Friday challenge…

To start my card I stamped the fairies from the Frosty Fairy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored them in with my Copics. The Coordinating Dies are used to the cut them out. Next I stamped the birthday from the Big Scripty Words Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lawn Fawn Grape Juice Ink and cut it out with the Coordinating Dies. I also cut three more from Solar White 110lb and adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. To create the background I cut a piece of Solar White 80lb with the Lawn Fawn Large Dotted Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts and used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Lawn Fawn Merman Ink to it. I placed my fairies and birthday on the panel and stamped the snowflakes from the Frosty Fairy Friends Stamp Set in Lawn Fawn Peacock Ink with the greeting stamped in Juice Box. On the card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of Tropical Sea, Cosmic Grape, a piece of paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter Petite Paper Pad and on top of that my background. The fairies are adhered with 3D Foam Squares and the birthday with more Multi-Purpose Spray. I think this card would make a really fun birthday card for a little girl with a Winter birthday don’t you?! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge!

The weather has definitely taken a chilly turn. I’m not going to lie, I don’t like it! I got up early yesterday morning and managed to have some poached eggs on toast for breakfast before heading out to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. Once there I had a nice productive day! I made a few cards and also put together another kit! It’s up on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Web Site if you want to take a look. My aunt Shirley and my uncle Steve FaceTimed me from England yesterday, love getting to speak to them! I also chatted with Andrea and we crafted for bit together. After work my favorite little person was at my Parent’s house! I had dinner with Daniel and then we played with his trains and threw a ball around for a bit. It landed in my Brother’s coffee which I thought was hysterical, he did not! After dinner Taylor stopped by my house and we ran to Target. Today I need to work on some more kits and tomorrow I think I will take a trip into Manhattan! 😀

Oh, before I forget I will have a second post today at 11:00AM for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! Make sure that you come back for that one, it’s a nice sparkly wintry card with a twist!

It’s time once again for a Fab Friday challenge, our last one of the year, and this time we have some timely colors for you…

I got to use a new stamp set that I got in my Pretty Pink Posh order and some dies too! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Chinese Red. I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs Dies to cut out three piece of Kraft to look like file folders. Next I stamped some images from the Pretty Pink Posh Winter Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I stamped the happy holidays onto the tabs with Memento Tuxedo Black and then adhered the “file folders” to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. The little critters are adhered with 3D Foam Squares and I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to the hats and antlers (you can’t really see it in the picture but it looks neat in person!). The bottom panel looked a little naked so I stamped the snowflakes from the set in Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink randomly. To finish the card I had to add some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins! I think that the little critters peeking over to tops of the file folders are so cute and I love the Stitched Tabs Dies! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out what the rest of the team did and enter your creation in the Gallery! Thanks so much for stopping by this morning! Don’t forget to come back at 11:00AM for my second post for today! Until then have a nice Friday! 🙂

So, did any of you venture out for some Black Friday deals?! I got a few things from Amazon but other than that I was good! I had a super relaxing day yesterday! I didn’t get out of bed until 10:00AM! I never do that! And I watched two movies! I’m still stuffed from yesterday! Taylor and I had pizza and port wine cheddar and crackers! LOL! I never use my stove because it’s gas and scares me! But we made it! LOL! Today I have my Black Friday sales at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! Hoping to be really busy! 😀

If you did got out and shop or eat too much sit back and relax and enjoy the new Fab Friday sketch…

One of the new things that I got on Wednesday was an awesome paper pad and I used it on today’s card! The base is Ivory 100lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Kraft. I used three pieces of paper from the TrimCraft Wild at Heart 6×6 Paper Pad. One for the top part of the background, one for the strip and another for the circle which is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. I also used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Frames Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Pluto Stardream Metallic for a frame around the circle. That circle is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My deer head is cut from a piece of Ionized Metallic and two pieces of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. To the back of it I adhered some branches that I cut out from more Kraft with the Lea-bilities Holly Leaves & Pine Branches Dies. To hold all of that to the circle I used a 3D Foam Square. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto more Kraft and adhered with more 3D Foam Squares. So what do you think, can it get more masculine than that?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Go on over and see the rest of the Team’s cards on the BLOG and let’s see your card in the gallery! Thank you for coming but today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

I enjoyed my day in Manhattan yesterday as I always do! The train was late as it usually is but I got to read some of my book on the way in and enjoyed my time with Ella. I also wandered around a little before heading back out to the Island. Heather arrived in Florida with her luggage which she was quite happy about. Whenever she flies Delta they inevitably misplace it! I had dinner with my Parents and Taylor and then Taylor and I ran a few errands. I also got to spend a little time in the Stampin’ Galley and make my card for today! I miss the Stampin’ Galley! Today I’ll be back at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, lots to do! 😀

To finish off this week we have a new Fab Friday Challenge for you…

fab-fri-100-11-11-2016

I went with a nice simple almost one layer card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of my images and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Love You, Mean It Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the circles twice in Versa-Mark onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and heat embossed them in Gold Embossing Powder. The rest of the images are stamped in Hero Arts Grape Juice, Butter Bar and Mint Julep with the greeting stamped in Grape Juice. I adhered the panel to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam and added some Gold Seed Beads and Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to the card to finish it off! I love the simplicity of the card, the greeting is wonderful and I always love when I can use just one Stamp Set! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge!

It rained all day here yesterday and was on the chilly side until last night when it warmed up a bit. I had another productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! A few people came in to make the card with the Concord & 9th Christmas Cottage Stamps and Dies! Love that 3D Pop-Up, especially since it fits inside a standard A2 envelope! I also got a kit put together with four card samples using the Lawn Fawn Snow Cool Stamp Set and Lawn Cuts and made my card for today! Taylor came by again, love when she comes to visit me! After work I had some dinner with the Parent’s and then went over to see Heather for a bit. We made a quick trip to Walmart and then watched a little TV. Today I’m going to put the kits together and start working on some more! They would make great gifts for the beginning stamper! They have everything except adhesives to make a bunch of cards! I also have some fun news to share with you! There is an article with me in it in the Holiday Issue of Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine!! How cool is that?! You can go to their web site and take a peek! I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited! 😀

Not only is it Friday but it’s time for new Fab Friday challenge…

fab-fri-99-10-28-2016

I wanted to use a new set that I just recently acquired from Hero Arts! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I added a piece of Black 110lb to serve as a mat for my background. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Hero Arts Cornflower Ink to create it. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The strip across the lower half has a greeting from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set stamped in Onyx Black. My images are from the Hero Arts Wintertime Fun Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black and used my Copics to color them in. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I added some White Puff Embossing Powder to the tree with a Versa-Marker and heat embossed it. The images are then adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins on the tree complete the card! I love the little animals in the set, adorable but not too cutesy! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Pay a visit to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery!
