SIP Challenge 158 – Christmas in July!

Hello peeps! Just popping in with a quick post for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge. The actual Stamp, Ink, Paper site is having major issues this morning so the post won’t be up for a little while. But the Design Team has all of their posts up and I’ll link to them below! Now for this week’s challenge badge…

I used some old and new sets from Concord & 9th for my card. To start I heat embossed the lightbulb from the Concord & 9th Shine On Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of Gold Metallic 27lb Vellum. The top of the bulb is also heat embossed in Silver onto a piece of Ionized Curious Metallic. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I heat embossed my greeting from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder using my Mini MISTI so that I could do it twice to make it a little brighter. The background with the greeting is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock. I added the bulb with 3M Foam Tape and then a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card. I do love the simplicity and metallic elements on the card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Once the BLOG is up I hope that you will check out the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

Happy Everything Wreath – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Happy Everything Wreath – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hello! Remember me?! It’s been a while! I have been keeping myself pretty busy doing all sorts of things. Crafting unfortunately has not been one of them! While you are reading this I will be in PA with Jim opening up the Lake House for the Summer season! Oh how I have missed it! Some peace and tranquility for a few days! I’m also really looking forward to the warmer weather! I did go into Manhattan on Thursday to see my friend Ella. It was 92 degrees! A nice little prelude of what’s to come! 😀

Today, It’s time for my May Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! I love that Wreath Turnabout Stamp Set, so many color possibilities and so simple to use!

I started my card with a piece of Solar White 80lb cut to 4″ x 4″ and placed it in my Mini MISTI. I used the alignment guide to align the wreath from the Concord & 9th Wreath Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped it in Ballet Slippers, Freshly Cut Grass, Hippo and Merman. Next I heat embossed the greeting from the same set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a strip of 65lb Vellum. Some E-Z Runner Ultra Strong adheres the strip around the back of the stamped panel. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and folded with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. For a little more sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins and the card is done! I do love that wreath and the simple greeting!

I hope that you like the card for my May Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook! We are getting ready to start our next challenge on May 9th, be sure to come back to see what the rest of my talented teammates have to inspire you! Thanks for stopping by!

SIP Challenge 142 – Colors!

SIP Challenge 142 – Colors!

Hello everyone! I hope that you had a nice weekend and that your week is off to a good start! I had a very quiet weekend, I did go over and see Brian & Kim on Saturday. They had an addition added to their house and it’s so nice and really big now! They needed the space! Last night Jim came by for a bit so that we could work on a couple of projects on the computer. I’m a bit late today, I managed to get some crafty time in and I didn’t want to stop while Mojo was present! LOL! We are to get more snow later on today into tomorrow. Between 1 and 11 inches, I’m hoping for the latter! 😀

I have my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge to share with you today! This week we have some fun colors…

I started by using my Mini MISTI to stamp the Concord & 9th Posie Fill-In background onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with Hippo Ink. The flowers and leaves are stamped using the Fill-In images and Merman, Peacock and Jalapeño Ink. I adhered the background to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Across the top half is a piece of Grey Sparkle Washi Tape and a thin strip of Peacock on top of that. My greeting is cut from Medium Grey 110lb four times using the Concord & 9th Hooray Die. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere the hoorays to each other and Multi-Matte Medium to adhere it to the card. It’s coated with Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer Pen. For a little added bling I scattered Pretty Pink Posh Peacock and Shamrock Sequins around the flowers. I love the grid background on the stamp and the fun hooray! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and we hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 141 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 141 – A Sketch!

Hello my fiends! How was your weekend?! Mine was great! Saturday morning I went and helped with a basketball game at the church with Jim. After that we had lunch and then later on he came by my house and I made sausage gravy and biscuits for dinner. We also watched Kingsman. On Sunday I went into Manhattan to see my friends Jim and Diane in the morning and then met up with Kim for brunch and a nice long walk through Central Park. On our way back from the park I found a wooden shipping crate so I brought it home so that Jim and I can turn it into something fun! Yesterday I had Daniel and Tristan. They were great as always. Today we are to get some more snow and I still have laundry to do from last week! Yikes! 😀

It’s Tuesday so that means time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

My friend Andrea sent me the new Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus and a few new goodies so I used them on my card for today! It’s been a long time since I played with Stampin’ Up! products! Onto a panel of Crumb Cake I stamped the flower and greeting from the Stampin’ Up! Amazing You Cling Mount Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black using my Stamparatus. The flower is colored in with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and to finish off the greeting I die cut a piece of Black 110lb with the amazing from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You Thinlits and adhered it to the panel with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a piece of Black 110lb to cover the front. A strip of Stampin’ Up! Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper goes down the left and the stamped panel is adhered to the caed with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins complete the card! I love that amazing die cut, it really is amazing! LOL!

Hello strangers! LOL! I have had the pleasure of spending a few days in Brunswick, Georgia at my friend Kim’s Sister’s house. I got out of New York just in time leaving on Thursday before the storm hit. The weather here has been lovely, sunny and in the high 60’s to low 70’s. We went to St Simon’s Island, the Okefenokee Swamp Park and Savannah. I have been taking lots of pictures and have a few to share with you…

I’ll have more pics to share with you later in the week! Sadly we are flying home later on today but I have missed a certain someone a lot and will be happy to see them! 😀

It’s time for my March Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! I combined a few sets to make a simple card.

I started by stamping the watercolor strip from the Concord & 9th Seasonal Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merman onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock down the left side. Next I stamped the wreath from the Concord & 9th Magnolia Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jalapeño and Noble Fir using my Mini MISTI. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Die and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. For my greeting I used the thanks die from the Concord & 9th Fabulous Phrases Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card and a piece of Solar White 110lb. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. To adhered it to the wreath I used Multi-Matte Medium. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze and Gold Sequins on the wreath and the card is done! I love that wreath!

SIP Challenge 135 – All You Need is Love!

SIP Challenge 135 – All You Need is Love!

And I woke up to some snow this morning! What a wonderful way to start the day! NOT! I did have a fun weekend! Saturday I hung out with Heather for a while. We ran errands and had lunch. Sunday Jim came over and we continued the great purge of my apartment. He is definitely the king of getting rid of stuff! With his assistance I managed to donate six boxes to good will and threw out nine bags of trash! It’s always easier to clean and purge when you have help, wouldn’t you agree?! Yesterday I went over and watched Daniel and Tristan. I’ll be back over there on Thursday too! My Mum is having double knee replacement surgery today so her and my Dad won’t be able to watch the kids for a while. I’m happy to pitch in until Mum is able to watch them again. She is very nervous but I’m sure that everything will be fine. 😀

My first post for this week’s is for the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

Just in time for Valentine’s Day!! I kept things simple! Onto my card base of Grey 110lb Card Stock I stamped the heart from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hippo using my Mini MISTI just in case I had to stamp it again! I find myself using my MISTI a lot, it’s nice to have a little safety net so to speak! Next I used the Concord & 9th Hearts and Love Dies. The solid one with the outline is cut from Black 110lb and the thin one from Gold Mirror Card. I added Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to the back and added them to the card. I still love my sequins, a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold ones did the trick for today! I do love that love die, so many different ways that you can use it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper All You Need is Love Theme! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards, including a risqué one from Amber! We hope that you will play along with us and share your card in the gallery! Thanks so much for coming by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 134 – Colors!

TGIF peeps! I have had a busy week, sorry for being MIA again! Tuesday I had the kiddies, always a good time! Wednesday I went into Manhattan to see Anna, I’m going to be helping her out with some things for the store which will be fun! I miss my store and have always loved The Ink Pad. It will be good to get involved and crafty again! Jim came by in the evening and we watched some TV. Yesterday I was just busy with all sorts of things all day so last night I needed a little more down time and that resulted in a trip to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday! Taylor came by too! This morning I’m off to get my haircut and then lots more stuff to get finished! Not quite sure what’s on for the weekend yet but hopefully it will be fun! 😀

I missed posting my card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge. There are still a few days left to play and I would love to have you join us! Here is this week’s challenge badge…

While I was at The Ink Pad I picked up a die that I have wanted for a while and I had to use it on my card! The die is the Hero Arts A Bit of Handmade Kindness Fancy Die and I cut it out from some Gold Mirror Card. My roses and leaves are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flowers in Soft Pink, Quartz and Raspberry Jam and the leaves in Moss and Lime Green. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies and added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with E-Z Runner and 3M Foam Tape. The die cut greeting is adhered with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive in the upper right. It needed some more sparkle so I added Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins around the flowers cluster. A little bunch of roses along with that greeting is sure to brighten someones day don’t you think?! I hope that you like my very late Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge! Over on the BLOG you can check out the rest of the Team’s cards and see the fantastic ones that are already in the gallery! Thanks for coming by and I wish you all an incredible Friday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 133 – Sketch!

Well, that was a quick Monday! I did a few things around the house in the morning and then went out with Heather to run a some errands. She made us lunch at her house, a nice salad and grilled turkey and cheese sandwich. When I got back the kids were at my Parent’s so I went and saw them for a little while. The evening was finished off with a little Hawaii Five-O on Netflix! I need the nice warm scenery! LOL! I have a few things to do this morning and then later I’ll head over to Jim’s so we can put his Mum’s den back together! 😀

Tuesday and time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Blog…

A nice simple sketch! I pulled out my Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy Photopolymer Stamp Set and started by using my Mini MISTi to stamp the flower in  Bubble Gum, Crimson Hybrid and Raspberry Jam Ink. The coordinating Die cuts it out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I stamped a stem in Moss Hybrid and cut that out with the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies. For my background I stamped the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Stamp in Charcoal onto a piece of Grey Card Stock. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Across the card is a piece of Pluto Stardream Metallic and over that I used some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhere the circle. The flower is adhered with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting its from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb. That is adhered with more 3M Foam Tape to the circle. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Charcoal Sequins finish the card! Love the bold pop of red against the white and gray! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! The rest of the Team has some great cards to inspire you over on the BLOG and we hope that you will share your card with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for visiting with me today!

Hello friends and a happy Martin Luther King Day to you! A Monday is always better when it’s a Holiday!! I had a nice weekend and hope that you all did too! On Saturday Jim and I drove up to the lake house in PA to check on the work that was done, not very happy with it so I emailed the contractor and told him what needed to be fixed. It was incredibly cold but so beautiful there! Really great to get to see the place in the winter!

We stopped and had dinner at Cracker Barrel on the way home, not as good as we had remembered! Yesterday we painted his Mother’s den a nice grayish blue color. That was an all day project, the cutting in and trim takes such a long time! Today I will be recovering from using all of those muscles that I never do! LOL! 😀

I squeezed in a quick card this morning for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Whenever I’m feeling a lack of Mojo I always grab some solid image stamps and create a stamped background. It also lets me get some more use out my neglected sets! Onto a panel of Solar White 80lb I stamped the greeting and images from the June 2016 My Monthly Hero Kit. The greeting is stamped in Charcoal and the images in Stone Wash, Lemon Yellow, Bubble Gum and Antigua. I adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Watermelon and Lemon Drop Sequins. A simple a fun card to let someone know that you are thinking of them! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Color Challenge! Thanks for starting your week off here with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 319

Freshly Made Sketches 319

Hey there! It’s supposed to get up to 46 degrees today! Maybe some of the snow will melt, that would be nice! I had a fun day with Daniel & Tristan yesterday, they really are such great kids! Daniel played on his hi-Pad and Tristan and I danced around the house. My Brother got home around 3:00 and I headed home. After dinner with my Parents Taylor and I watched a little TV and ran to Michaels quick. I have some laundry to do today and more errands to run. Anything to stay busy! 😀

I did manage to squeeze in a card this morning and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

A fun layered sketch! I have been on a bit of a purple kick lately, not sure why! The main panel of my card is stamped in Freshly Cut Grass, Fresh Lavender and Sugarplum using some of the floral images from the Concord & 9th Bits & Pieces Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s backed with a piece of Black 110lb and added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock that has a piece of Cyber Grape covering the front. I die cut the happy from a piece of Black 110lb with the die from the Concord & 9th Bits & Pieces Dies and adhered it to the stamped panel with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Some sparkle always makes a card better so I added Clear Sparkle Pen to the happy and some Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden and Pansy Purple Sequins. A fun card to send a little happy to someone that needs a pick me up! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Always good to have you stop by! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂
