Mojo Monday 495

I had a quiet Sunday. I had a little work to do for a friend on the computer, cleaned a bit and watched far too much TV. It was sort of overcast most of the day and a little chilly too. I had thought about going into Manhattan but then decided that I didn’t feel like taking the train or driving in so that took care of that. I guess it was a relaxing day, although I did find it a bit boring. Today back to the Store and I will fill the day with some craftiness, that always makes the day better! 😀

It’s Monday people and time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

This card came out of nowhere! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kraft. I used the Hero Arts Skylines Fancy Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock for the buildings and some Gold Mirror Card for the Bridge. The buildings are adhered to the card with a strip of Battleship Gray underneath. I adhered the bridge to a piece of Chinese Red, trimmed of the excess and adhered the square to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next I die cut the happy from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set from a piece of Solar White 110lb, heat embossed the birthday in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Black and adhered the happy to the top and then the black to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I will admit that I wasn’t really sure as I was putting the card together but I really do like the finished product, especially the colors! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! There are more cards to see over on the BLOG so stop by and take a look and let’s see your take on the sketch too! Thank you for starting your week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 285

Happy weekend! I had a nice day in Manhattan yesterday! I spend some time with my friend Mary in he morning and then went to meet Kim for lunch. She’s working in our old building at 345 Park Avenue. We stopped at Chop’t and got lunch and went to eat in this little park with a waterfall…

It was a beautiful day as you can see from the picture! I got back out on the Island around 3:00 and came home for a bit. Jim came over around 7:00 and we went for a nice long walk on the Bethpage Bike Trail before heading to the diner for dinner. A little TV when we got back to my house before saying good night. Today I’ll be at the Store and there is a Crop, fun! 😀

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

I went with a nice simple card. The background is a piece of Kraft that I stamped with the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Background Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink. I added some Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder and heat set it. The background is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My butterfly is cut from Black with the Concord & 9th Floral & Flutter Dies. The greeting is cut from more Black three times using the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Dies. They are adhered to each other and to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. A little scattering of Pewter Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and the card is done! I love that butterfly and the subtle Tree Ring on the Kraft! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Ahh… Friday! Thursday was pretty good, the Store was fun, had a little card class in the morning. I came home after work and got ready to go over to Jim’s for dinner. We had Tacos, I got to meet some of his peeps and we got all of the technology in the house straightened out! This morning I’m off to see the city to see my friend Mary and then have lunch with Kim! 😀

It’s a Fab Friday week and we have a new sketch for you…

Oh yes, another stamped background! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Grape Soda, Juice Box, Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum and Freshly Cut Grass right onto the card base. Down the left side I adhered a piece of 48lb Vellum and a strip of Rose Chintz. My greeting is from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Bubblegum for the happy, the Mother’s Day is stamped in Freshly Cut Grass onto a banner that is stamped from the Lawn Fawn Bannertastic Photopolymer Stamp Set in Juice Box. I used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut out both and adhered them to the card with 3M Foam Tape and E-Z Runner. I love the simplicity of the card and the nice bright colors!

I managed to have a nice productive day at the Store, it’s nice to have a day to myself but I do miss Renee. I spoke to her last night and she got all of her stuff done for the baby shower that she needed to! My Parent’s came by the Store with Daniel for a bit, that was a nice surprise! I also got to see him when I got home. I had some left over Greek food for dinner and then spoke to Andrew for a bit. Some TV and that was the day for me. Today I have some peeps coming in to make the step card and then I’m off to a friends for dinner tonight! 😀

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

I had gotten one of the add-ons from the April My Monthly Hero Kit release and hadn’t inked it up yet so I decided to use it on today’s card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of dark peach down the center. On my panel I stamped the image and greeting from the Hero Arts Dress Up Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the girl in with Copics. The dress is a piece of Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper that I cut with the dress die in the set. I folded it and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins complete the card! It’s a nice fun set and the pleated dress is pretty cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks you for visiting with me today! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

And it rained all day yesterday just like they said it would. If they were right about that then today will be more of the same. I had a busy day at the Store which is not a bad way to spend said rainy day! Jim came over when I got home and we worked on some more of the crafty project, got some Greek food for dinner and then just relaxed and watched TV. Today I’m flying solo at the Store, Renee is off to take care of some baby shower duties! 😀

It’s Wednesday and that means time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

Are you sick of the stamped backgrounds yet?! I’m still loving them! My card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the images from the Hero Arts Everything Smiles Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black randomly onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and colored them in with my copics. The panel is then trimmed to 3″ x 3″ and adhered to a piece of Tropical Sea and that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I die cut the speech bubble from the same set from a piece of Wild Honey and adhered that to the card with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The HI is cut from Black using the Hero Arts Alphabet Uppercase Dies. The rest of the greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a strip of Chinese Red. That is adhered over the speech bubble with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. I decided that the background needed a little something more so I added some dots with my Signo Gold Gel Pen and just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins finish the card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG to check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thanks so much for your visit today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 284

Happy Friday peeps! Thankfully it only rained in the morning and the sun came out for the rest of the afternoon! The first day of Card Class went well and I’m looking forward to day two! I was on my own for dinner again last night, the Parent’s were watching Daniel and Tristan. I can see where I fall on the importance list! LOL! My evening was spent watching TV again to distract my little brain! Good times! 😀

Today’s card is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I haven’t watercolored in a while and I have these new to me Pearl Watercolors from FineTec, I needed to give them a try! The flowers are from the Altenew Botanical Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set, I heat embossed them in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto some Arches 140lb Watercolor Card. They are then colored in with the FineTec Pearl Watercolors and my Aquawash Brush. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Next I used the Altenew Happy Die to cut out a piece of Kraft and two pieces of thin chipboard (left over packaging!), some Multi-Matte Medium adheres them to each other. While I waited for them to dry I created my card base with a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with another piece of Kraft and adhered a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock down the center. The happy is then smooshed into my Versa-Mark Pad and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder, I did it twice to give it a really nice shine. To finish the card I adhered the flowers and happy to the card with 3M Foam Tape and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins. I really like the FineTec Pearl Watercolors, they have a nice sparkle to them, it looks so much better in person! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for spending a little of your Friday with me! Enjoy the rest of the day! 🙂

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!

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

SIP Challenge 92 – Color Inspiration!

What started out to be a rainy drizzly morning brightened up by the afternoon. Renee and I kept busy at the Store, she had her Monthly Memories class and I worked on some projects. After work I went straight over to see Heather. We ran a few errands and then had dinner. After that we watched a little TV. Today I have so many more projects to work on at the Store and then Jim is coming over this evening to make dinner. We will work on more of the crafty project too! Should be a very good day! 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I wanted to make a nice simple card, these colors are some of my favorites! I started out by stamping the blossom from the Concord & 9th Brushed Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Wet Cement, Passion Fruit, Grape Soda, Charcoal and Soft Pool using my Mini MISTI. The greeting is stamped in Charcoal and the dots in Wet Cement. I adhered the panel to a piece of Soft Sky and then to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The delicate die cut is cut from Kraft using the Concord & 9th Blossom Die and it’s adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Sparkling Clear Sequins give the card a little sparkle! I do love that flower, so deconstructed. I also like that the Die doesn’t match up perfectly! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Inspiration Challenge! Make sure and stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards!
