Paper Players 360

Well, I had a wonderful time in PA! I needed to get away from everything for a bit and that is one of the best places to do just that! It’s so peaceful and relaxing at Jim’s house up there. We spent some time antiquing, the afternoons by the lake and the evenings around the fire. I got to meet most of his family and they were great! I had so much fun! The ride home yesterday morning was actually pretty good despite the rain all the way. Traffic was light so I guess I’ll take the rain. I stopped by Jim’s for a little bit after I got home and then came back and had dinner with my Parent’s. The rest of my evening was spent doing a little more organizing with a little TV thrown in for good measure! I hope that you all had a great weekend too! I missed you all for the past two days! 😀

To start off this week I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

The card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background and piece of notebook paper are from the DCWV Maps, Text & Ledgers Paper Pad. I used the Simon Says Stamp Notebook Edges Die to cut the left side and adhered it on top of the map at an angle. The flowers are from the Simon Says Stamp Flowers on My Mind Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Pale Blush Pink and Green Apple onto Desert Storm 80lb. I cut them out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered them in the upper right. For the greeting I stamped the letters from the Simon Says Stamp Game Tiles Letters Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black onto die cut pieces of paper from the My Mind’s Eye Necessities Wood Paper Pad and adhered them to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I love the Scrabble Tiles and the map paper, makes for a fun card don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you so much for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Butterfly Hello

Butterfly Hello

Yay for the weekend! Yesterday was nice, I did a few things around the house. My Brother and Erika stopped by my Parent’s with the kids and we all had dinner together. After that Taylor and I ran a few errands and I spoke to my friend Greg for a while. Today I have a lot of things to get done, I will be spending a lot of time in front of the computer and then maybe squeeze in a little crafting! 😀

While I was thinking of cards to make yesterday I was looking around the Stampin’ Galley and it’s amazing how much stuff I have accumulated and not used! I’m sure that you know what I mean! LOL! So in an effort to use up some of the excess that I have I used some paper and embellishments to make my card! The base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I adhered two pieces of paper from the My Mind’s Eye My Story 6×6 Paper Pad to my card base, the second one with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is one of the My Mind’s Eye Die Cut Journaling Cards and that is adhered with 3M Foam Tape. The little gold butterfly in the upper left is one of the My Mind’s Eye Chipboard Buttons. I tied a piece of American Crafts Black Twine into a bow before adhering it to the card. My greeting is cut from a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card and two pieces of Black 110lb with the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Die. I adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. One last thing to finish the card, a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins! A pretty simple card to put together and how neat to get to use some of those goodies that have been just sitting there?! I hope that you like today’s card and are inspired to use some of your collections! Thank you for stopping by and have a super Saturday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 62 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 62 – A Sketch!

Hi! Thanks so much for coming by today! It was another absolutely gorgeous day here! The humidity broke and the temps were in the low 80’s. I got another Altenew order at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to replenish some of what is missing and it also included a few new items! I have to get ready for my Partial Die Cutting Class on Wednesday and the massive Lawn Fawn order that will arrive. I need to get that all checked in and ready for Thursday! That’s the day it gets released to the public! Can’t wait to play with all of their new goodies! Wednesday is going to be a crazy busy day at the store! Anyone wanna come by and help?! 😀

So what do I do on Tuesday?! Oh yes, it’s time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we have a nice simple sketch…

SIP Challenge 62 - Sketch

When I sat down to make this card on Saturday it started out as a completely different card. Then I went to look for something and found this paper pad that I forgot I had. That was the inspiration for the rest of the card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Early Espresso. The background is that piece of paper from the Prima Cartographer A4 Paper Pad. Next up is a piece of My Minds Eye Christmas on Market Street Shining Stars Foiled Vellum. The circle is a piece of Gold Mirror Card that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Lawn Cuts. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner, I also hid the adhesive for the Vellum behind it! My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. For the feathers I used the Spellbinders Feathers Shapeabilities Dies to cut out some Kraft Card Stock. I added a little Versa-Mark to the ends and heat embossed some more of the Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder onto them. They are adhered to the gold circle with 3D Foam Squares and a piece of DMC Gold Thread is tied around the top. Three Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card! I love that background paper, so glad that I found it! I also love the way the Vellum softens it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of my fantastic Design Team has come up with to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery so that you might be one of our top three picks! Thanks again for stopping by! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 460

It’s Monday, another weekend for the books! Day two of the crop was fun! Everyone gets along and helps each other out. It’s a very nice atmosphere to be creative in! I made a duplicate of the scrapbook page that I made for my Sister-in-law for my Mum, I changed the flowers to purple because that’s her favorite color. When I got home, a little early and after a very nice ride home, I had some dinner and then tried to figure out why the AC in my car isn’t working. I hardly ever use it but I do need it for the defogger. After some tinkering around my Dad and I think that it’s the Climate Control Relay. I’ll have to see where I can get one of those from and change it. Fun! Today I need to work on my Newsletter for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and the new release from Concord & 9th will be arriving at the store. I need to get that entered and then have a little play before it’s released tomorrow!

Starting another week of the best way! With this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

Mojo460

I got a few new goodies from Hero Arts that I needed to play with and this sketch was just perfect! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used two pieces of Patterned Paper from the Jen Hadfield DIY Home 6×6 Paper Pad. One is the strip on the left and the other I cut out with the Sizzix Circles Framelits. My two cool notebook page like things are a piece of Smoky Slate and a piece of Basic Gray that I cut out with the Hero Arts Kelly’s To Do List Stamp & Cuts. They are adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My heart is a piece of Blushing Bride that I cut out with the Hero Arts Kelly’s Clips Stamp & Cut. For my greeting I used the Hero Arts Love Stamp & Cut. The Love is cut from a piece of The Paper Cut Galvanized Curious Metallic and and the rest of the greeting is stamped in Onyx Black on the Smoky Slate piece. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Onyx Sequins, Essential By Ellen Iridescent Gray Sequins and a few My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Christmas Enamel Dots to finish the card. I really like that Paper Pad, great colors and fun patterns and the Kelly’s Stamp & Cuts are great for more than just planners! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Don’t forget to head on over the the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s take on the sketch and enter your card in the gallery!

Paper Players 306

Another Wednesday done! I was all by myself at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday, well, except for customers! Renee took a much needed day off to spend time with Nick! I spoke to my friend Dianne who told me about a girl that gives Hand-lettering classes! I would love to get someone in to teach that! I would take the class too! I also spoke to Michael and Sue! I did manage to get all of my prep finished for today’s Watercolor 101 Class. I love the way the cards turned out and hope that the students enjoy them just as much! I really do enjoy watercoloring, you can do it so many different ways! The weather here yesterday was just perfect, around 80 degrees so the ride home in the convertible was lovely! Last night I helped my dad with some stuff, had dinner and then came home and tried to decide how I want to re-arrange my house. I need to have a major purge and soon!

Today I have a nice simple card to share with you that I made for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Before we get to that I want to thank LeAnne for making me her Headliner for last week’s sketch! You can see the winners post HERE and my original post HERE! Now for this week…

Paper Players #306

I do love a Tic-Tac-Toe board! I went down the last row and across the top too I guess! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Lawn Fawn Chili Pepper Card Stock with the Hero Arts Irregular Grid Bold Prints Background in Red Royal and then adhered it to the card base. My tag is a piece of Kraft that I cut out using the tag from the June My Monthly Hero Kit. Some Hemptique Black & White Baker’s Twine is tied through the top and then the tag is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My images are from one of my favorite sets, the Hero Arts Hipster at Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Intense Black and the used the Coordinating Frame Cuts to cut them out. They are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Ribbon Banner Stamp & Cut. I heat embossed it in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb and cut it out with the smaller of the two banners. Some Foam Tape holds it to the card and I added a few Enamel Dots for a little interest! I love that Irregular Grid Background, I think that background stamps are very under utilized tools! I hope that you liked my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you so much for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 53 – CASE the Designer!

SIP Challenge 53 – CASE the Designer!

We have had a great run of weather lately! Sunny and mild here again yesterday and my car is loving it! It was another good day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I got a lot of administrative things done and also found out that putting orders together at 12:45AM is not such a good idea! Thankfully I have a great Rep and she corrected my mistakes! It’s always good to have a second pair of eyes! I left the store around 6:30 and headed over to Heather’s. She had an amazing dinner waiting for me and a much needed glass of wine! We chatted and I worked on some store stuff while she did her school paper. It’s funny how you can sometimes get so much more accomplished when you have some company! Today I have lots of stuff to work on at the store! I have to decide what I’m doing for next month’s Card Class and get some samples made and I also have to get ready for Thursday’s Intro to Altenew Class. Such fun work I have to do! 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means that I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Blog for this week’s challenge…

SIP Case Challenge 53 800

Now there is a fun and different challenge! While I was at the store yesterday I was digging around in the drawers in the back and came across some dies. I decided that I would put them together to make my card! The card base is Solar White 80lb Card Stock cut to 3 1/2″ wide. The filmstrip is cut from some Battleship Gray with one of the dies from the My Mind’s Eye Hello World Dies Set. I adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. My three feathers are cut from Pale Aqua, Tropical Sea and Gold Mirror Card using the feather die from the My Mind’s Eye On Trend Die Set. I adhered the feathers to each other and to the card with Dot Runner Adhesive. The banner is a piece of Slate with the right side flagged and that is adhered to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is cut from some more Gold Mirror Card using a word die from the Paper Smooches Christmas Words 2 Die Set and that is adhered to the banner with more Spray Adhesive. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Gold and some Hazel and Ruby The Makery Green with Envy Sequins to finish the card. Sometimes it’s fun to use some random die cuts to make a fun card, don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper CASE the Designer Challenge!

Now that was a busy Friday! We got to the dealer nice and early and dropped off Heather’s car. On the way back we stopped and got bagels. I left around 9:30 to head over to Scrap-A-Latte to go and see Renee. We had a very nice chat and even got to speak to Michael too! From there I want back over to Heather’s and took her to pick up the car. I ran to the Post Office on my way hame and dropped off a package. When I got home I stopped to see Daniel and then I ran home and made two quick cards. Next I packed my stuff up to stay at Kim’s and Dad took me to the train station. I made pretty good time and was at Kim’s at 6:45. We had dinner and then some Fro-Yo from 16 Handles. This morning I’ll be at The Ink Pad at 7;15am to get everyone rounded up for the bus ride to Allentown! Should be a fun day! 🙂

One of my quick cards is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 230

The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used a piece of paper from the My Mind’s Eye My Story 6×6 Paper Pad for the strip down the middle. Next I took another wooden embellishment, the Mr. & Mrs.this time, and heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s adhered to a piece of Vellum Card Stock that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge Frames Dies with Multi-Matte Medium. I hid some Foam Tape behind the sentiment to adhere it to the card. For a little added sparkle I punched out a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper with a small Heart Punch and adhered that to the vellum. Are you sick of the wooden embellishments yet?! I love them so there will be more! LOL! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you and I hope that I get to see some of you at the show today! Have a stampendous Saturday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 39 – A Sketch from Ginger!

SIP Challenge 39 – A Sketch from Ginger!

Hi there again! I hope that you had better weather than we did! It was a rainy dreary day here, not a bad for being crafty though! I had to run to UPS to drop off a return to Amazon, FaceTimed with Andrea for a bit when I got back and had some dinner before heading over to see Heather. We watched a little TV and had some wine. A pretty good way to spend a dreary Monday evening! Today I plan to clean a little and get a little more crafty! What’s on for you today?

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we a fun sketch from Ginger…

SIP Sketch Challenge 39 800

My card base starts off with a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock covered with a piece of Black 110lb. I heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Background Stamp onto a piece of Basic Gray with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder. My Journaling Card, Gold Doily and Love Flag are all from the My Mind’s Eye Fancy That Collection. I adhered the journaling card to the background with E-Z Runner and then added a strip of Gold Foil Sheet that I flagged the right side on. The square is another piece of Black 110lb, I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper and heat embossed my Mr. & Mrs. from the Simon Says Stamp Congratulations Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The square is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The flag has a piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Twine tied in a bow thought the holes and is adhered to the square, it’s self adhesive and the same goes for the doily! I heat embossed the heart from the same stamp set in Blushing Bride Stampin’ Emboss Powder three times and used the 1/2″ Circle Punch to punch them out. A little Foam Tape secures them. Some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins are added to give the card even more shine! I do love the journaling card and all of the embellishments from the Fancy That Collection, great colors and fun designs! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Take a peek at the blog and see what the rest of the Team has to inspire you to create a card to post into the gallery! Thank you very much for coming by today! Have a great Tuesday! 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Well, it was 0 degrees here this morning at 6:00am and that was without the wind chill which took it down to -10! Can we say frozen tundra?! I had to run out last night and my car was like… why! LOL! I did get a lot of crafty time in yesterday which was good, it was nice and warm in the house. Last night my friend Louis stopped by and we chatted for a bit and then he asked if he could make a card! I told him only if I got to share it on the blog today so here it is…

Louis V'day Card

I said that it was pretty good for a first attempt! A shaker no less, he said that I was just a really good teacher! I told him that he needs to come to card class now! We’ll see!

Today I have a fun Valentine’s Day card, the last one for this year. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The front is a piece of Real Red that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles and then used the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Spaced Hearts Stencil and a little Wendy Vecchi Metallic Gold Embossing Paste (I’m liking that lately, aren’t I?!). I masked off the stitched edges and the lower half with Blue Painter’s Tape. Across the bottom is a piece of My Mind’s Eye Gold Vellum from the Christmas on Market Street Collection. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders on a piece of Black 110lb and adhered that across the top of the Vellum. My heart is cut from some more Black 110lb twice with the Simon Says Stamp Sketch Heart Craft Die and adhered together with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. To raise it up a bit I used Kool-Tak Clear Foam Adhesive to hold it on the card. Finally I die cut some Gold Foil Sheet and more Black 110lb with the Simon Says Stamp Small Love You Craft Die and used more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhered them together and to the card. I do love the gold embossing paste and that Sketch Heart is still awesome! I hope that you enjoyed mine and Louis’ cards for today! Thank you so much for visiting and have a love filled Sunday with your Valentine! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 222

And Saturday! It was an interesting day here yesterday, we got another foot of snow. This time it was that heavy wet snow, the kind that makes the tree branches hang down. I went over to my parent’s in the morning to wait for Daniel to be dropped off, they had an appointment. When Erika dropped him off we spent some time looking out the window and discussing the fact that I hate snow and Daniel loves it! LOL! Once they got back we had some lunch and then I ventured out to the Deli and brought Heather some lunch. I spent the afternoon over there researching some stuff while she worked. The snow stopped around 1:30 and the sun came out. Thankfully the roads were mostly clear. After dinner I got ready to go to Adelphi University in Garden City for the Sing Strong Aca-Idol Competition. Andrew’s group Satellite Lane performed along with nine other groups. They were all fantastic! This morning I’m off to The Ink Pad to spend the day with Barbara! What’s on for you today?

My card that I have for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 222

I have had this journaling card sitting on my desk for a few weeks and decided that I would finally get to use it! My card starts off with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I used the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round all four corners on the card base. Across the bottom is a strip of Blushing Bride. The journaling card is from the My Mind’s Eye Fancy That Collection and is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I cut the congratulations out of some Gold Foil Sheet and another piece of Ivory 110lb. They are adhered to each other with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Ballerina Pink Sequins to finish the card. I love the gold foil accents in the journaling card and the congratulations looks really cool cut out of the Gold Foil Sheet! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you so much for visiting with me today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂
