Mojo Monday 492

I know I say it all the time but the weekend goes too fast! It was a gorgeous day here. I had a nice time in Manhattan in the morning and ran to get the train, literally! Boy am I out of shape! LOL! Jim picked me up at the station and we came back to my house, saw my Parents for a bit and then jumped in my car, put the top down and went for a nice long ride along the north shore. It’s so pretty up there and the houses are so nice. We stopped at IKEA on the way back and had some Swedish meatballs for dinner and did a little shopping. When we got back to my house I helped him with some iPhone stuff. The rest of the evening was spent catching up with some other friends! So nice to speak to my peeps! 😀

Ahh.. Monday, it’s not such a bad day when you have a new Mojo Monday sketch to start your day…

My card starts off with the usual base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is a piece of Kraft that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp and some Doe Ink. Next up is a piece of of Chinese Red with the hearts from the Concord & 9th Love Always Photopolymer Stamp Set heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I adhered that to the background and then a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Tape across it. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th By Your Side Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Cranberry onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. I adhered that to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Raspberry and Sparkling Clear Sequins finish it off! You know that Barnwood Background Stamp is my fave and I love the falling hearts too! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Make sure that you stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see your take on the sketch by entering yours in the gallery!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – One Layer!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – One Layer!

Hello again! I’m back for my second post for today! We have a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog for the month of April! This time we ask you to create a single layer card!

To start making my card I stamped the lily from the Concord & 9th Lily Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a Post-it and cut it out with my Scissors. I then prepared my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and placed it into my MISTI. The lily is stamped in the lower right, I placed the mask over that one and stamped the next one over it and repeated the process for the top one. Next I stamped the yellow centers with Sunflower Ink, again using the mask. All that was left for me to do was to add my greeting from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set. I do love a one layer card, especially with some masking. I think this would make a great card for so many different occasion, don’t you? I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Single Layer Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Design Team has done to inspire you and we would love for you to share your card with us in the gallery! You have the whole month to play along! Thanks for stopping by again today! I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Thursday! 🙂

Pretty Petals Card Set

Pretty Petals Card Set

Another fun day at the Store, it’s always a good time with a crop! Suzanne made the wedding card from last week’s class and loved it! After work I came home and stopped by my Parents. My Brother also stopped by, he had a wake to go to for a friend of his that was only in his 40’s, so young. Jim came by around 7:45 and we went to dinner at the Oak Chalet where they have some pretty German food. We watched a movie when we got back to my house and chatted for a bit before calling it a night. Today I’m off to Manhattan to help my friend Tia set up her new MacBook. It’s supposed to be a nice day too, let’s hope that the weathermen are right! 😀

I have really been into the one layer cards lately. It’s nice to be able to make a card with just some stamps and ink! I made a set of four cards today that will make a fun and useful gift for someone! The card bases are all Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the flowers from the Concord & 9th Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lawn Fawn Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum, Fresh Lavender, Sugarplum, Minty Fresh, Merman, Sunflower, Carrot and Black Licorice Ink using my MISTI just in case I had to stamp them more than once. The Happy Birthday greetings are from the Concord & 9th Happy Words Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Black Licorice and the thanks is from the Concord & 9th Give Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set, also stamped in Black Licorice. Super simple cards but that nice big flower gives a fun look to them! I hope that you enjoyed my little card set for today! Thank you for taking the time to come by and see me! Have a simple and fun Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 282

Ahh… Thursday is always a good day for me. I had my class at the Store and that was fun! Renee left a little early, she wasn’t feeling well. I got some of my projects finished in between peeps coming in. After work I came home and had some Mac & Cheese that Jim had given me and then he came over around 7:00 and we headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Taylor came by and so did Stephanie, George came home too! We had a birthday cake for Taylor, Carvel, yum! Today it’s finally Friday! Lots of things to do at the Store always, but always fun! 😀

In England your 21st Birthday is a big deal so I made a card for that birthday for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black Licorice. I used the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background Photopolymer Stamp on a piece of Merman inked with Peacock for my background. The numbers are cut from a piece of Merman that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Background Blocks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Peacock and a piece of Chili Pepper to outline them. I adhered them to piece of Peacock with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive backed with some more Black Licorice. The 2 and st are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and the 1 with 3D Foam Squares. All that was left to do was to stamp the happy birthday from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice and the card is done! A nice different take on a birthday card thanks to the fun sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thanks so much for visiting! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 93 – Coming Up Flowers!

SIP Challenge 93 – Coming Up Flowers!

Another really nice day yesterday! Sunny and warm with just a little breeze! Today we are to have a very rainy morning and then spots of rain for the rest of the day, but still not cold! YAY! I stopped by the bank on the way to the Store in the morning and they were not helpful at all. I’m over it so I’ll be switching to a new bank as soon as this is cleared up. I had a pretty productive day when I got to the Store. Renee had her Christmas Card Club and my friend Sue stopped by, always nice to see her! I had a quick dinner with my Parents when I got home and then went over to get Heather so we could go and see Brian and Kim! It’s been ages since we have all hung out but it was like no time passed at all. Good friends! Lots of projects are on tap for today and Jim will be by later to work on the crafty project! Should be a great day! 😀

What makes it even better is it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

That’s right! Just add some flowers to your project! I though that it might get Spring here a bit faster if we all do it together! LOL! I played with some of the new line of products from the latest Concord & 9th release. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. That pretty background is created using the Concord & 9th Floral Fill-In Patterned Paper and the Floral Fill-In Stencils. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Ballerina Pink for the first layer of the stencil and Bubblegum for the second layer and adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The flower in the upper right is from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in the same two colors. I cut it out with my Scissors and adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My big hello is cut out from a piece of Pink Vellum for the outline a piece of Black for the inside. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere the black to the outline and then teeny dots of Multi-Matte Medium to adhered it to the card. The friend is from the Concord & 9th Say Hello Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice under the hello and the card is done! I love those Floral Fill-In Paper and Stencils, you can make your flowers any color that you want, such a cool idea! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s projects, including this month’s Guest Designer Bibiana Cameron! We hope that you will share your project with us in the gallery!

Mojo Monday 491

Mojo Monday 491

Another weekend gone too soon! I had a very busy and really fun one so no complaints. Yesterday I had a quick trip into Manhattan to see my friends Jon and Mary. I left them around 12:20 and ran down to The Ink Pad to drop off some things for Anna and then headed back to Penn to get the train home. I was home by 2:10 and then ran over to Heather’s to see the new paint in the living room, very nice. We did a few errands and then hung out at my house for a bit. Daniel was at my Parent’s so we played with him for a while. I took Heather home and then Taylor came by for a visit. The evening needed with a little TV. Today it’s back to the Store and some crafty fun! 😀

We are starting the week off as we always do with a new Mojo Monday sketch…

My card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my background I used a piece of Merman. The two panels are Lawn Fawn Blue Raspberry Perfectly Plaid and Birthday Candles Watercolor Wishes 12×12. I adhered the Watercolor piece with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I stamped the greeting and the waves from the Lawn Fawn Float My Boat Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merman Ink onto a strip of Solar White 80lb and cut the left on an angle. It’s adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My boat and seagulls are from the same set. The boat is stamped in Peacock and the seagulls in Hippo. More 3D Foam Squares adhere them to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Share Kindness Mix add a little sparkle! Love that little boat and the seagulls, just fun! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! We hope that you will share your take on the sketch with us in the gallery after you check out the rest of the Team’s cards that they have made to inspire you over on the BLOG!

Beep Boop Birthday!

Beep Boop Birthday!

Today’s lesson was that Justin does not do well on 4 hours of sleep! To make my morning even more fun, I discovered that Citibank has once again screwed up my checking account, can’t wait to go there on Monday. Then, when I arrived at the Bethpage train station at 6 AM, I discovered that last night someone had used their car to remove the crossing gates. That made the train late. I did manage to get to The Ink Pad by 7:15 where I waited outside with the rest of the peeps for Jane to come. We gave everybody their goodie bags and boarded the bus. It was a quick, pleasant ride down to Allentown with our nice driver, Michelle. I found the Stamp Show to be a little bit smaller than last year’s but there was still some great stuff to be seen and nice demos being done. I also ran into Virginia, her daughter and granddaughter, Nancy, Renee and Angie, and a bunch of other people. We left around 5 o’clock and I was home by 8:15. Andrew came by to hang out for a bit. Always great to see him, and a nice way to end my Saturday! This morning I’m off to Manhattan again to see my friends Jon and Mary. 😀

Sometimes when I do reorders for Lawn Fawn, I take time to go through the sets that I don’t have, and I snuck one into the last order that I did. I thought it would be good for making simple cards, so that’s what I used it for. I stamped the images from the Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black ink and colored them in with my Copics. I used the coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out and placed them on a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I stamped the cogs in Hippo ink and then adhered the images to the card with 3D Foam Squares. Like I said, a nice simple card, and I love that little robot! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card. As always, thank you so much for coming by. Have a simply wonderful Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 281

Freshly Made Sketches 281

It rained allllll day. Not even a little break. I was holed up in the Store and made sure that I got in a lot of crafty time! Some more Lawn Fawn came in so I entered that. My friend Lori came by to pick up some stuff and I spoke to a bunch of peeps on FaceTime and the phone. Dinner with the ‘rents when I got home and then Jim came by and we ran to the supermarket to get a few last minute things for the party tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, I decided that I’m going to go on the bus to the Stamp Show in Allentown with The Ink Pad. I’ll get to see my buddy Jane! I’m sure that it will be a good time! I’ll let you know if I find any goodies! 😀

One of my projects yesterday is my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I played with some more new Concord & 9th goodies! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the lines from the Concord & 9th Love You Always Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Lilac across the top of my card base. The flower is from the Concord & 9th Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Fresh Lavender for the base and Sugarplum for the petals using my MISTI so I could triple stamp it. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out, to get the petals perfectly placed I used the negative as a template and curled the ends of them to give them little dimension. The center is a piece of Black cut out with one of the other dies from the set and it’s adhered with a 3D Foam Square. All that was left to do was to stamp the greeting, also from the Pretty Petals Set, in Black Licorice. I love that nice big bold flower and there are so many different way that you can stamp it! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂

Fab Friday 109

Fab Friday 109

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! 🙂

Paper Players 337

Paper Players 337

Hello! Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day indeed! It got up into the mid-sixties with plenty of sun! I made sure that I stepped outside quite a few times while I was at the Store! I got in a bunch of new Concord & 9th, got it all checked in and played with some of it too! After work I had dinner with my Parents and came home and cleaned a little. My friend Sue came by and so did Heather and George. A bunch of friends on a Wednesday night, who could ask for anything more?! Today Renee leaves for her little scrapbooking adventure to PA with a bunch of the ladies so I’ll be manning the Store for a few days! 😀

One of the cards that I made yesterday is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

A nice layered sketch! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Die to cut out a piece of Illustrated Faith 12×12 Paper. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up I heat embossed the XO from the Concord & 9th Love Notes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in Gold onto a strip of Black with both ends flagged. I hid the adhesive behind the black strip and adhered the vellum under it. The flower is from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Ballet Slippers and Bubblegum. I used my Scissors to cut it out and adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. It needed a little Sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink, Pink Blush and Gold Sequins. I love that flower, so nice and simple! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for visiting with me! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂
