Well, guess what?! The weather men were thankfully wrong and we only got about 4 inches of snow and then it rained. The snow was really heavy to shovel as you can imagine, still better than the 18 inches that they said we were going to get! I’m sure that the ride to the Store will be fun, it certainly all froze overnight. I spent the day in the house yesterday watching TV and relaxing. I did make my card for today but that was about it. I’ll be glad to get out of the house today! 😀

The card that I made in the Stampin’ Galley is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch…

I used the March My Monthly Hero Kit to make my card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a strip of Carta Bella Copper Dots Vellum 12×12 down the left side. I stamped my images from the March My Monthly Hero Kit in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. The Coordinating Dies cut them out. I used a Craft Knife to be able to slide my carrots into the basket. The circle is a piece of Lawn Fawn Noble Fir cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. I heat embossed the greeting in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. A strip of Tip Top Taupe and a strip of Tangelo Twist are adhered across the card and then the circle is adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All that was left to do was to adhere my bunny and basket with some 3M Foam Tape and the card is done! Love that little rabbit and his basket of carrots, so cute! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for coming by to visit today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Guess what?! It’s Winter here again! Why won’t he stay away?! We are having some snow this morning, over it people! But it is Friday! So at least that’s good! I had a solo day at the Store yesterday. My Parents came by for a visit and we FaceTimed with my Aunt Shirley in England. Jan also stopped by to make the Pop-Up Card from last week’s class. After work I had dinner and then headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Stephanie was there and Brian stopped by too. Hopefully the roads won’t be bad and I’ll be able to get to the Store today. Ugh! Enough with the snow already! 😀

I did have a little crafty time at the Store and I made a card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I began by stamping the beautiful image from The Ton Haute Wedding Dress Photopolymer Stamp Set In Memento Tuxedo Black and using my Copics to color her in. I cut the image out with my scissors and then ran a Memento Tuxedo Black Pen around the edges. To give it some sparkle I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to give a nice sheen to the dress. The background is a piece of Solar White 80lb that I heat embossed the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background in Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. I added some Ballet Slippers Ink to the background with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. A strip of paper from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pad goes down the left side. I adhered the main image to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Perfectly Penned Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts and that too is adhered with 3D Foam Squares. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins from the Sweet Pea Mix and the card is done! I have liked that stamp since I first saw it and I couldn’t hold out any longer! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have a fun Friday! 🙂

OSAT March Blog Hop – Birthday Bash!

OSAT March Blog Hop – Birthday Bash!

Hey hey! Happy Thursday! I had a nice productive day at the Store after I had to stop at the bank again yesterday morning! My ATM card didn’t work, thanks citibank! I’ve definitely seen enough of them this week! LOL! Renee had her Kiwi Lane class and my Parent’s stopped by in the morning for a bit. After work I came home and spoke to Heather for a bit. My friend Jim came by and we had dinner, Zorn’s which I haven’t had in forever, and listened to music and talked. A very nice way to end the day indeed!

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the talented Megan Thompson, welcome! This month we have a Birthday Bash theme! I don’t know about you but I can always use a Birthday card! I made a card and a coordinating gift box to share with you today!

First up is my card! I used the Lawn Fawn Out of This World Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped some of the images from the set in Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink so that I could color them in with my Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I cut a piece of Black to be slightly smaller than my card front and heat embossed the greeting in the bottom left with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The background is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I added the images to the card with 3D Foam Squares and then stamped one of the stars from the set in Yeti Ink randomly over the background. Finally I used my Signo White Gel Pen to add dots to the background and give it a little more of a space feel. I think this would make a great card for a little boy’s Birthday, don’t you?

Next I have the coordinating box. I used the Lawn Fawn Fancy Box Lawn Cut to cut out the box and then used the Lawn Fawn Starry Skies Lawn Cut to cut out the stars from the lid. Some more images from the Out of This World Set are stamped, colored and cut out. I adhered the box together and added the stamped images to the lid with 3D Foam Squares. Again, I stamped the stars and added some dots and it’s done! I love that box, it’s a nice different way to give a gift card or a little present!

I hope that you enjoyed my card and gift box  for the OSAT Birthday Bash Blog Hop! You can click on the next button below to go back to the start and see what the talented Lori Mueller has come up with!! Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today. Have a thoroughly awesome Thursday! 🙂

Halfway though, almost there! I had an interesting day yesterday. My checking account got screwed up by citibank, they cashed someone else check in my account and were very unhelpful, in fact it may be the worst customer service experience I have ever had! But with a little help from Heather we got it straightened out. Glad that we had to do all of the work to figure out what went wrong. Thanks citibank, I’ll definitely recommend you to my friends… NOT! So that ended up consuming most of my day. I did manage to get a few cards made while I was at the Store. When I got home I had dinner and then went out for a while with Taylor. To end the evening I watched a movie and soaked my feet. Today will be a much better day!! 😀

Since it’s Wednesday that means we have a new Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

I actually managed to keep my card nice and simple! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Starry Skies Lawn Cuts to cut out the starts from a piece of Black. My piece of paper across the top as well as the two flagged pieces are from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pad. I adhered the purple and light blue, tied a piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Cord in a blow and then adhered the other blue piece over that with 3D Foam Squares. After it was all together I adhered the piece to the card base. Next I heat embossed the one of the banners from the Lawn Fawn Bannertastic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black and then added the greeting from the Lawn Fawn Out of This World Photopolymer Stamp Set, slightly bending the stamp to follow the curve of the banner. A little E-Z Runner holds that in place. I also stamped the rocket from the Out of This World Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with my Copics. The Coordinating Dies are used to cut it out and a 3D Foam Squares holds it in place. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze and Onyx Sequins and the card is done! I love the simplicity of the card and the colors! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for coming by to see what I’ve been up to! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 487

Mojo Monday 487

What a Sunday that was! When I got to the Store in the morning there was water all over, apparently there was an issue with a pipe somewhere in the building and it caused a leak. Renee, Angie and I must have used the Shop-Vac 20 times to vacuum up the water, they finally got it fixed around 3:00. Needless to say I didn’t get much done! My friends Lori and Debbie did stop by the store to pick up some goodies and I was also very happy that Jodi Collins from the My Favorite Things Design Team came in! So nice to get to meet her and chat with her about crafty stuff! You can see her blog HERE! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then watched some TV and read for a little bit. Today I’m off to Manhattan to see my friend Ella and maybe take a little trip down to The Ink Pad! Should be a fun day! 🙂

It’s Monday and you know what that means… time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

For some reason lately I have been into some really bright colors! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Pale Aqua for the background. All of my images are from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the jellybean outline repeatedly onto a piece of Crisp Green with Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass Ink to use for my strip down the middle. Next I used the Hero Arts Infinity Circles and Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Purple Hearts and Lawn Fawn Gummy Bears 12×12 Paper. I adhered them to a piece of Solar White 80lb and then to the card. The jar is stamped in Lawn Fawn Minty Fresh. I used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut out the stamped jar, a piece of Acetate and another piece of Solar White 80lb. I then cut out the negative of the jellybeans from the stamped jar, lined it up with the blank one and stamped the jellybeans in Memento Tuxedo Black. They are colored in with my Copics. I adhered the acetate to the back of the stamped jar and then used 3D Foam Squares to adhere it to the colored image. For the lid I heat embossed the image onto a piece of Galvanized Curios Metallic with Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder. It’s also cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts and adhered to the jar that is then adhered to the card. For my greeting I used the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped the happy in Merman, used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut it out, stamped the birthday also in Merman onto a strip of White and flagged the right side. The happy is adhered with more 3D Foam Squares and the birthday is tucked under the circle. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Raspberry, Amethyst, Pewter and Lemon Drop Sequins for a little sparkle! The jar looks much better in person, with the Acetate it really does look like glass! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for starting your week off here! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Better with You… and Coffee

Better with You… and Coffee

OMG! It feels like Winter is back! I don’t think that it got out of the teens yesterday and that wind was as strong as ever! Hey Spring, where’d ya go?! I did have a nice productive day at the Store, managed to get two cards made and survived Renee’s kids class! LOL! After work I had a quick dinner with my Parents, they were going to my Brother’s to watch Daniel and Tristan. Taylor came by and we ran a few errands. I cleaned the bathroom, Saturday night fun, and watched Sweet Home Alabama! I never realized but Reese Whitherspoon drives the same car that I have in the movie! Sunday’s are usually quiet at the Store so I’m going to try and get all caught up on my projects! 😀

Today I have my solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog and I’m sharing another card for the Love Theme Challenge that just finished! You can see my post by clicking HERE and heading over to the Design Team Blog! The post will go live at 11:00AM.

I started by heat embossing the images for the coffee cup and plate onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock with some White Embossing Powder. I do enjoy a little fussy cutting and these images are super easy to cut out. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th By Your Side Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto the plate. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of black and cream patterned paper for the background. I decided that it was a little too bold so I used a piece of Vellum to soften it adhering the images with Foam Tape, including a spoon that I heart embossed onto a piece of gold metallic card, to it and the hiding the adhesive behind them to hold the vellum to the card. A relatively simple card to make that will get sent to someone special just to let them know I’m thinking of them!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! We will be starting a new challenge on March 9th so be sure and play along with us for that one! Thanks for stopping by and spending some of your Sunday with me! Have a simply wonderful day! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 277

It’s going to be a chilly weekend here, Winter is back! 🙁 I had a nice surprise at the Store yesterday morning, my friend Brian came by for a visit. He needed a custom stamp made and I haven’t seen him in ages! My friend Sue also stopped by which was really nice! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then watched a movie. Renee has a kids class at the Store today and I have many projects to get finished! 😀

Time now for my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches

I went with nice and simple just like the sketch! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used a little piece of paper that Renee had left over, it’s from the Illustrated Faith line. I die cut the love from the Hero Arts Love Stamp & Cut from a piece of Chinese Red and two pieces of Solar White 110lb. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to a strip of Ballerina Pink with Multi-Matte Medium with the rest of the greeting stamped in Crimson Hybrid Ink. The strip is adhered to the card with 3D Foam Square and a few Pretty Pink Posh Pink Peonies, Raspberry and Sparkling Clear Sequins are added to finish it! I do like the little brush stroke hearts on that Patterned Paper, fun and subtle! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have a stellar Saturday! 🙂

Fab Friday 107

Fab Friday 107

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!

Just another day at the Store, Renee had her All Occasion Card Class and I got to see some customers and chatted with lots of peeps! After work i went to see Heather. We split a chicken cutlet parmesan hero for dinner and watched Joy, well, the end of Joy. After that I came home and got Winston and settled in for a nice evening of TV. Sometimes I just need to be mindless and TV is the best escape! I need to mix it up a little, I think that I need a trip into the city soon! 😀

Today it’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge day! This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe for you…

I started my card by stamping the images from the Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse Photopolymer Stamp Set in Orange Soda, Soft Apricot, Butter Bar, Soft Vanilla, Wet Cement and Tide Pool and cut them out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. To make my background I stamped the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Soft Brown directly onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My file folder is created with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tabs Die and a piece of Putty, I added a piece of Seam Binding Ribbon along the bottom and it’s adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. Next I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Filmstrip Die from a piece of Tropical Sea and adhered it to the card with more E-Z Runner. The stamped images are then added with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Brown along the top edge of the filmstrip. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Marigold Sequins finish the card! Love the sea images against the woodgrain, you know me, I think that woodgrain goes with everything! LOL!

Freshly Made Sketches 276

Well, that was a very busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! The Lawn Fawn order came in and went right back out! I couldn’t have gotten it all done with the help of my friend Sue! We worked all day on making sure that everything was sorted, packed and mailed. Everyone that placed an order had their packages mailed out yesterday! I stopped at the Post Office and dropped them off and the lady couldn’t have been nicer! From there it was home to have a little dinner and then off to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday! We ended up running to Target and met up with Stephanie there. Back to the house for a lot of laughter! Taylor stopped by and George even hung out with us for bit! I do love my peeps, they are pretty awesome! Today I will input the extra Lawn Fawn and get it back up on the Store site! 😀

I have my card for they week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you today…

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Magnolias for Her Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black Crisp Ink. To color them in I used my Prismacolor Pencils, I’m getting better but am far from where I want to be with them! I did really enjoy the coloring and blending and that’s what it’s all about right?! After they were colored in I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my card I started off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The panel was actually left over from a card that I made a few weeks ago. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder onto a piece Kraft. My greeting is from the Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of 48lb Vellum. I wrapped the Vellum around the back of the woodgrain panel and then adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The leaves and single flower are adhered with more E-Z Runner. I choose to forgo the sequins to keep the focus on that pretty flower! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by to see me today! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
