Lucky Because…

Lucky Because…

Hello and welcome to post number two for today! Once a month I get to do a solo post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog and share a fun project with you using some goodies from one of my favorite companies! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog. While you’re there check out all of the other fabulous cards that the rest of the Team has created as we get ready for our next challenge coming up on April 9th!

I love the big new word dies that they came out with and isn’t it nice to remember that no matter what we have going on in our lives, I’m sure that we all can find something that makes us feel lucky! And how nice to let someone else know that we are lucky to have them!

To start my card I die cut the large lucky from the Concord & 9th Lucky Dies from a piece of Solar White 80lb paper and used some Washi Tape to hold it to a piece of Black Card Stock. I put the outline of the die back inside the negative and then sponged on some Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. After that dried I added some Mama Elephant Lemongrass Pigment Ink over the White and used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying. Here is what it looked like while I was working on it…

Next I used the Concord & 9th Lucky Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the I’m Super and Because… in Versa-Mark. I added some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set it. My black panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then die cut the thin lucky from two pieces of Lemon Lime along with some of the stars. The two luckies are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then over the sponged lucky with Multi-Matte Medium. The stars are added randomly and the card is done! I love the look of the sponged lucky with the die cut in the middle , it looks a little like neon!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Design Team and that you are inspired to make a card and send it off to someone that needs a little reminder of how lucky you are to have them in your life!! I know exactly who I’m giving this one to! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on April 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you for that one!

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂

So when I got the to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store they were already paving the parking lot. Let me tell you that makes it really hard for people to get over to the store! I spent a little time in the morning getting a few things finished and I left the Store around 12:30 to go and see my friend Sue. We had Etsy things to do and I have benn putting them off for a while plus I haven’t really see her a lot lately and I missed her! We had a nice afternoon and even went to Panera for lunch! I headed back over to my house around 5:30 and had dinner with my Parents. Mum made Trifle for dessert and it was yummy! I came home and worked on one of my cards for Friday, yes it’s a double post day! Today I need to get my Newsletter finished and yes, work on more projects! 😀

My card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

paper-players-324

The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black. For the background I drew three lines onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with a pencil and stamped three of the houses from the Mama Elephant Christmas Scene Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black repeatedly. I also stamped them onto another piece of Solar White 80lb and colored them in with Copics. Next I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out the three houses that I colored in and some Post-its to create masks for the ones on the panel. I put the masks on and applied some Hero Arts Tide Pool Ink with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. I then stamped the greeting from the Christmas Scene Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and the snowflakes from the Mama Elephant City Sidewalks Photopolymer Stamp Set in more Tide Pool. The base is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner and the three colored houses are adhered to the center row with 3D Foam Squares. I really like the effect of the masked houses with the soft blue background, it was quick and fun to do! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have an amazing Thursday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 68 – Card Maker’s Choice!

SIP Challenge 68 – Card Maker’s Choice!

Well, the sun finally came out yesterday after not seeing it for a week! I wasn’t sure what it was at first but then I remembered! LOL! I had a busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! Renee had her Christmas Card Club and the ladies wandered in and out all day making their cards. I managed to get two cards made and a lot of other administrative stuff done! After work I came home and had some dinner and then went over to Heather’s to catch up on some TV. I’m off from the Store today, I have to go and take Taylor to get her wisdom teeth removed. Not fun. And then I’m off to Manhattan to see my friend Ella for a bit. Yay for back to Manhattan!

Tuesday’s mean a new challenge over at the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

sip-challenge-68

Cardmaker’s Choice is always a favorite! I played with some more soon to be released Mama Elephant! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Solar White 80lb and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Hero Arts Navy and Grape Juice Ink to create a night sky background. Next up I die cut a piece of Black 110lb with the Mama Elephant Cityscape Creative Cuts. The skyline is adhered to the card with Dot Runner Adhesive and the road has a piece of white behind it and then 3D Foam Squares hold it in place. My houses are from the Mama Elephant City Sidewalks Photopolymer Stamp Set, they are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used my Prismacolor Pencils to color in the buildings and the Coordinating Creative Cuts to cut them out, some more 3D Foam Squares adhere them to the card. My trees and phone box are also from the set and are adhered to the buildings with still more 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is a piece of Solar White 110lb cut out with the Mama Elephant Spreading Holiday Cheer Creative Cut. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to hold it to the card and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to give it just a little shine! I love those cute little buildings and the way the Hero Arts Ink blends is just fantastic! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Card Maker’s Choice challenge!

Mojo Monday 468

Mojo Monday 468

I really enjoyed my weekend and hope that you did too! Yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store we had our first Hand Lettering Class taught by the lovely Paula Andrea! I took the class and learned the basics, included in the class is an excellent workbook so we can all practice, and I’m going to need a lot! If you want to see some of Paula’s work you can find her on Instagram HERE! She was an excellent teacher and we can’t wait to have her back! After work I came home and saw my little buddy Daniel at my Parent’s for a bit before heading over to pick up Kim so that we could go to Govenor’s Comedy Club for the Fire Department Fundraiser. We met up with Brian and I got to see my friends Mike and Michelle who I haven’t seen in ages! It was nice to catch up with them! The last comedian of the night, Mick Thomas, was hysterical! I think that the Irish accent made him even funnier! What a nice way to end the weekend!

And it’s Monday so that means that I’m over on the Mojo Monday blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

Of course I had to play with a new Mama Elephant set! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of paper from the Echo Park Wintertime 12×12 Collection. For the band across the lower half I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts to trim off the lower part of a piece of Gold Mirror Card and added a strip of Echo Park This & That 12×12 Paper across it before adhering it to the card. That super cute “Charlie Brown” tree is from the new Mama Elephant O’ Tiny Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the trunk and branches in Dark Chocolate Crisp Ink and colored in the image with Copics. The pine needles are stamped in Evergreen Crisp Ink. My lights and string are heat embossed in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder, the ornament hook in Platinum and the ornament in Gold. I colored in the lights and ornament in with Copics and added a generous dose of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the ornament. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Onyx Black. I used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the corners and adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Up in the left corner is a piece of Black 110lb adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I hand cut the tag from more Gold Mirror Card and then added a Natural Twine bow to it before adhering it to the card with a Glue Dot. I’m totally in love with the little tree! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the Design Team BLOG to see more inspiration and add your card to the gallery!

Mum’s Birthday Card & Mama Elephant!

Mum’s Birthday Card & Mama Elephant!

What a lovely day I had yesterday! I met Sandy at the Seaford Train Station at 9:15AM so we could take the 9:45 train into Manhattan. We stopped at The Ink Pad so I could drop off some merchandise for Anna. I got see my Jane! From there Sandy and I headed over to Dirty Bird for lunch, so delicious! We wandered around the Meat Packing District for a bit and then headed over to WestBeth for the Mama Elephant 4th Annual Anniversary Event. Lots of new stamp and die sets and some older ones that I just had to have! We met up with my friend Nancy and sat and talked to her for a while. I also got to see Angela and Kryssi from Mama Elephant! We are going to work on having them come out the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store for an event! YAY! Around 3:45 we headed out and stopped at Starbucks on the way back to The Ink Pad. Sandy met up with her son David and his girlfriend and I hung out with Patrice and Jane for a bit before heading back to Penn to catch the train. I got a text from my Mum that they were still at my Brother’s so I drove there straight from the train station. The first thing I see when I walk in is Taylor fast asleep on the couch! Erika saved me some of the chicken parmesan that they had for dinner and a wonderful piece of Red Velvet cake. I got play with my little buddy Daniel, we played with his Mickey train and then he showed me his toys in the playroom. By the time I got home it was 9:00 and I was done! Today we have a Hand Lettering Class given by a friend that I found through my friend Dianne at the Store, I’m taking it too! Can’t wait! I did remember to take some pictures! Here is the courtyard outside of where they have the event space at WestBeth…

And since WestBeth is technically artist housing there is always some neat artwork around. I love this funky sculpture that’s on the way in to the area that the event space is…

And here are just a few of the new Mama Elephant sets that I got…

I love that little Charlie brown tree!!

Since it was Mum’s Birthday yesterday I thought I would share the card that I made for her with you today! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the flower images are from one of my all time favorite stamp sets, the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flower in Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet, the leaves are stamped in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen all with my Mini MISTI. I heat embossed the additional images in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto 48lb Vellum and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them all out. They are all adhered with Vellum Adhesive and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Altenew Super Script 2 Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Midnight Violet again with my Mini MISTI. Of course the card needed some sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Pansy Purple, Mossy Green, Lime Sorbet and Gold Sequins! Purple is my Mum’s favorite color so she loved the card! I hope that you like it too! Thank you for sharing in my little Saturday Adventure! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 235

Well, if it isn’t Friday! So nice to see you again! We had another really overcast day here yesterday but it didn’t rain! We are to get heavy rain this morning and then maybe a little sun this afternoon. I spent the day with my friend Sue yesterday! We had lots of errands to run. We met Bill for lunch and then after that we made our way over to Scrap-A-Latte stopping at Michael’s along the way. Sue and Renee haven’t see each other in a while and while they chatted I worked on some things. By the time we were finished it was 4:45, time to head back to Sue’s so I could get my car and head over to my parent’s for dinner with them and Daniel. I stopped home briefly before heading over to Heather’s, we ran to BJ’s quickly and then back to her house for Thirsty Thursday! Sort of fitting that it fell on Cinco de Mayo! I had a margarita and it was delicious! When I got home I sat down and made my card for today before finally getting to bed around 1:30! A pretty good Thursday!

The card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 235

This was one of those that as soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to use! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Creative Cuts to cut out my background from a piece of Pink Vellum. My cherry blossom branch is from the Mama Elephant Lunar Extras Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black along with a few extra flowers and used my Copics to color them in. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and the branch is adhered to the Vellum with Multi-Matte Medium. My greeting is from the Mama Elephant Heartfelt Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb and cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I adhered it to the Vellum with Foam Tape. A few strategically placed dots of Multi-Matte Medium adhere the vellum panel to the card. Some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins are added along with the extra flowers. I love that arigato greeting with the cherry blossoms and the Pink Vellum makes a nice backdrop for them! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Your continued visits are always appreciated and I wish you all a super fun Friday! 🙂

Another rainy day here as promised by the lovely weathermen! LOL! I was up early and took Heather to the Dr. for another shot in her spine. She is trying to avoid the surgery at all costs, I can’t say that I blame her. We were there for a while and when she was finished we drove over to Woodbury and had lunch at Chop’t! Yes, I found one out here on the Island! Now Heather understands why I like it so much! From there we stopped at Target, Walgreen’s and the Dry Cleaners before heading back to her house. One of the cats had tried to take apart the chandelier so I fixed that and then came home just in time for dinner with Mum and Dad! When I got back to my house I made my card for today and continued working on my little project. Soon people!

The Paper Players have an interesting challenge this week…

Now, I knew that I had a bicycle stamp somewhere I just had to find it which didn’t take quite as long as I had thought it would! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I cut out the Mama Elephant Cityscape Creative Cuts from Black 110lb and adhered it to the card with Tombo Dot Runner Adhesive. Across the bottom for the street I adhered a piece of Basic Gray with some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The bicycle and greeting are from the Papertrey Ink Pedal Pusher Photopolymer Stamp Set. I did all of my die cutting first, they are solid dies, and then stamped the Wheels and greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black, the bicycle in Tide Pool, Basket in Khaki and the puppy in Slate. Two brads attach the wheels to the bike frame and it’s adhered to the card with more Tombo Dot Runner and Foam Tape. I never get tired of that cityscape, it works for so many different things! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks for coming by today! Have a simple Thursday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 444

Mojo Monday 444

Do you ever have one of those days? The kind where you have so much to get done and you just can’t pick a starting point so not much gets done! I hate when that happens! That was my Sunday! The weather was so nice I think that it may have played a part in my distraction! I kept wanting to be outside! I did get a few things done but no where near as many as I wanted! Oh well, we’ll try to finish up things today! I was supposed to take Heather to the airport this morning but she called me last night and apparently she has a 101 fever so she won’t be going anywhere. Feel better Heather! How was your Sunday?

Today is Monday and that means that it’s time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

Mojo444

This card all began with the urge to watercolor and evolved from there! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Creative Cuts to cut out a piece of Solar White 80lb. It’s gives it that nice cross stitched detail around the edge. I then masked off the edge with some Post-it Tape and stamped the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp onto it using my MISTI and Simon Says Stamp Black Ink. It’s then adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. The three panels are Gold Mirror Card Stock and they are adhered with Foam tape and E-Z Runner. The flower and leaves are from the Mama Elephant Fresh Cut Florals Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card. I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors to color them in and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. A little more E-Z Runner adheres them to the card. My greeting is a piece of Black 110lb cut out with the Mama Elephant Hello Script Creative Cuts and adhered to the flowers and leaves with Multi-Matte Medium. It really is funny how hard it is to take a good photo of a card with Mirror Card Stock on it! The greeting really stands out in real life! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with to inspire you and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your creative take! Thank you very much for starting your week off by stopping by to see me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Fab Friday 83

Fab Friday 83

Let’s see… what is today?! Why I think that it’s FRIDAY!! Yesterday was a pretty nice day here. There were a few brief showers but in between I managed to get the top down in the car! I ran some errands with Heather and then spent a little time with Daniel before heading over to Scrap-A Latte for card class. Andrew and Kayleigh picked up some Blaze Pizza and we had dinner before class started. It was a fun time, Thursday’s are a little more laid back than Friday’s. After class I caught up with Danielle and on the way home I stopped at Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. I have some crafty things to get done this morning before heading back over to Scrap-A-Latte for the second night of class. I’ll post the cards that we made on Sunday and also have a little surprise too!

Today I’m over on the Fab Friday blog for our sketch challenge…

Fab Fri 83 3-18-2016

The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered two strips, one of Silver Glimmer Paper and one Bermuda Bay to a piece of Black 110lb, stapled them with my Tiny Attacher and then adhered the panel to the card base. Next up is a piece of Cucumber Crush that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Waves 3D Embossing Folder. That is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My main panel is a piece of Bermuda Bay, I stamped the greeting and the map from the Concord & 9th Map Love Photopolymer Stamp Set. The map is stamped in Mama Elephant Mojito Pigment Ink and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder. For the greeting I used Onyx Black and then adhered the panel to the card with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. To give it a little sparkle I adhered a few Pretty Pink Posh Peacock Feather Iridescent, Shamrock and Sparkling Clear Sequins with Multi-Matte Medium. I love bold look of the Mojito Ink on the Bermuda Bay card stock and of course that 3D Embossing Folder is so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge!

Happy Friday everyone! It was another absolutely beautiful day here yesterday! I went over to see Sue and I got to have the top down in the car! Oh how I have missed that! We got some Etsy stuff accomplished and went and had bagels for lunch. When we got back to Sue’s we spoke to Michael and then I headed home to see my little Daniel! He came over to my house and let Winston out, gave him a biscuit and then we went for a walk. On the way back he sat on my shoulders and told my mum “look at how tall I am Nanny!” when we got back to the house. When I went to leave he said with a very sad face “Uncle Justin, you didn’t tell Daniel that you love him”. So I told him that I did and I got a hug and a kiss! He is just the cutest little man ever! From there I headed over to Heather’s and we ran up to IKEA to get her another chair and lamp. When we got back I assembled the new goodies and then Adam and Stephanie came over for Thirsty Thursday. Another wonderful day! Today I’ll be off to The Ink Pad for my Hero Arts Class tonight and then I’ll be at Kim’s. It’s back to The Ink Pad for the day tomorrow with Anna! Here is a little selfie of Daniel and I on the way back from our walk…

Danile & Me Walk Selfie

Oh I just love that little guy so much! Note that he has his remote in his hand, you never know when you are going need one of those! LOL!

Now on to today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #285

I did a little hybrid of the two! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Smoky Slate. I stamped my greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Encouragement Photopolymer Stamp Set In Onyx Black on the background. A piece of Basic Gray is cut out with the Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Madison Avenue Creative Cuts. I adhered a piece of Acetate to the back of the frame with Scor-Tape and then added a layer of Foam Tape. A piece of Solar White 80lb is cut out with the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio Creative Cuts and adhered to the card. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Marshmallow Sequins and then adhered the frame to the card. Some more Solar White 80lb and a piece of Daffodil Delight are cut out with the Mama Elephant Stitched Sky Creative Cuts and adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Foam Tape. The raindrops are from the same die set and are adhered to the Acetate with Multi-Matte Medium. I love that Madison Avenue Frame and the sentiment is a really nice and different one! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you so much for coming by and visiting me today! I wish you all the best Friday ever! 🙂
