Happy Friday! I had a very productive day yesterday while waiting for the new door to be installed at Jim’s house. I caught up on all of my Blog comments, all 100 of them! And yes, that took all day! LOL! When Jim came home we ran to the grocery store and then I helped him make stuffing for his lunch at work today. We also made some Shoo-Fly Pies using my Grandmother’s recipe and they came out really good! On my way home I stopped by Heather’s for a little Thirsty Thursday! Always good to see my ladies! Today I want to get some things done but as you can see by late post the morning isn’t going as planned! 😀

I did squeeze in a quick card this morning using the October My Monthly Hero Kit. To start the card I cut out a piece of Soft Sky with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. The images are all from the Hero Arts October My Monthly Hero Kit and are stamped in Black. I used Prismacolor Pencils to color in the eskimo and the ice. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of Pacific Point that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wave 3D Embossing Folder. A strip of Galvanized Curious Metallic goes down the left side and then the circle is adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins finish the card! I love the images in the Kit, they are much easier to color in with pencils too! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you for coming by for a visit and hope that you have a fabulous weekend! 🙂

Hello Lovely Butterfly – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hello Lovely Butterfly – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

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 May 9th! Today I’m sharing another single layer card!

For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To create my mask I stamped the butterfly from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Narwhal in and then stamped it again onto a Post-it Note. The one on the Post-it is cut out with my Scissors and placed over the one stamped onto the card. Next I stamped the floral cluster from the Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set Again in Narwhal along with the greeting. To color the images in I used Prismacolor Pencils. I went a little darker on the butterfly to make it stand out a bit more. It needed just a little something so I added some random dots with a Gold Sign Gel Pen. These really are two of my favorite sets from Concord & 9th and I love the way the butterfly turned out!

I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and that you will give masking a try! 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 for that one!

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

Bamboo Birthday

Bamboo Birthday

Hello all and a happy Saturday to you! It was a little chilly here yesterday and somewhat dreary. We had a busy day at the Store, got to meet some new customers and I got to help a very nice lady with some thank you cards. I had to stop at the Post Office on the way home to drop off an order and I had a little dinner with my Parents when I got home. The rest of the evening was spent just relaxing and watching some TV. Today there is a crop at the Store, I will get to see the ladies! 😀

I have a card that was inspired by a one that Yana made the other day to share with you. I started by stamping the flowers from the Altenew Bamboo Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Solar White 80lb and then colored them in with my Prismacolor Pencils. I don’t have the dies for them so I used my trusty Scissors to cut them out. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the Altenew Painted Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock and some of the berries from the Bamboo Rose set, colored them in with pencils and then tied a piece of May Arts Twine around the top. The panel is then adhered to the card base with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All that was left to do was to adhere the flowers with 3D Foam Squares. I have always loved the way Kraft looks on a card, I think that it makes the flowers really pop! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you for your visit today and wish you a stupendous Saturday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 490

Mojo Monday 490

Oh, it’s Monday already. The weekend really does go so fast! I did have a very nice day off! I ran a few errands in the morning and then Jim came over with lunch and we worked on his crafty project a little more. The rest of the evening was spent watching a TV and just being. It felt so nice to do not much at all. Today back in the swing of things at the Store! 😀

It’s Monday and time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

My card starts off with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. The notebook paper is a piece of Authentique 12×12 from the Twisted Collection. I adhered it to a piece of Black and then added some May Arts Ribbon around the middle. A piece of Echo Park Wintertime This & That 12×12 is adhered to a piece of Chinese Red and that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My image and greeting are from the Hero Arts Welcome Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored in the bunny with Prismacolor Pencils and adhered him and the greeting to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A few Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry and Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is done! I love that simple cozy little bunny sitting on the pillow, so cute! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards, we hope to see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thank you for starting your week off here with me! Have an amazing Monday! 🙂

Hello Lovely Flowers

Hello Lovely Flowers

Thankfully they were wrong about the snow again! It flurried for a little while and then turned to rain. We had a bunch of visitors at the Store today including my friend Jodi and a new customer! I worked on cards most of the day, I’m taking today off so I wanted to get ahead a little. Renee left early to go and celebrate her grandson’s Birthday, I hope that she had a good time! I had dinner with my Parents when I got home and then spent some time with Taylor before heading over to see Sue. She needed a little assistance with a new wireless router that she got. We got that all set up and all of the devices connected! On the way home I stopped at Target to pick up a few things and then relaxed for the rest of the evening. Today  have some cleaning to do, fun Sunday! LOL! 🙂

I was in the mood to color and not be very particular about it so I stamped the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set onto a piece of Solar White 80lb with my MISTI. To color in the image I used Prismacolor Pencils, adding some French Gray around the image to give it some depth. The panel is mounted to a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are added. A very simple but bright and fun card, and it’s technically one layer too! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you so much for stopping by and wish you a nice Simple Sunday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 276

Freshly Made Sketches 276

Well, that was a very busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! The Lawn Fawn order came in and went right back out! I couldn’t have gotten it all done with the help of my friend Sue! We worked all day on making sure that everything was sorted, packed and mailed. Everyone that placed an order had their packages mailed out yesterday! I stopped at the Post Office and dropped them off and the lady couldn’t have been nicer! From there it was home to have a little dinner and then off to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday! We ended up running to Target and met up with Stephanie there. Back to the house for a lot of laughter! Taylor stopped by and George even hung out with us for bit! I do love my peeps, they are pretty awesome! Today I will input the extra Lawn Fawn and get it back up on the Store site! 😀

I have my card for they week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you today…

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Magnolias for Her Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black Crisp Ink. To color them in I used my Prismacolor Pencils, I’m getting better but am far from where I want to be with them! I did really enjoy the coloring and blending and that’s what it’s all about right?! After they were colored in I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my card I started off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The panel was actually left over from a card that I made a few weeks ago. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder onto a piece Kraft. My greeting is from the Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of 48lb Vellum. I wrapped the Vellum around the back of the woodgrain panel and then adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The leaves and single flower are adhered with more E-Z Runner. I choose to forgo the sequins to keep the focus on that pretty flower! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by to see me today! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 268

Freshly Made Sketches 268

It felt good to be back at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! I had a few orders to get out and Renee, Angie and I all worked on projects. I left the Store a little early to come home and give my house a thorough cleaning. Need to get everything spruced up for the New Year! I had a little dinner with a friend and then watched some TV and went through some pictures on the Apple TV. Today I have a ton of projects to work on, I’ll be a busy boy! 🙂

My card that I have to share with you today is for the final Freshly Made Sketches of 2016…

The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock cut to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and folded in half. I covered the front with a piece of Slate Gray and then added a panel of Battleship Gray. I stamped my images from the Hero Arts December My Monthly Hero Kit in Memento Tuxedo Black on Kraft and colored them in with my Prismacolor Pencils. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. My main panel is Wildflower Honey, I arranged the images onto it and then stamped the cork popping and little bursts in Versa-Mark. They are heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder, the images are adhered with Multi-Matte Medium and the panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My greeting is also from the December Kit and is cut from a piece of Silver Glitter Card Stock and two pieces of Black. I adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray and then to the card with more Multi-Matte Medium. Some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen on the champagne bottle and hat along with just a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver and Gold Sequins and the card is finished! I really do love that Hero Kit and the fun gray and yellow combo! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Candles & Flowers Congrats

Candles & Flowers Congrats

I hope that you all enjoyed your Christmas day celebrations! We had a lovely day! The star of the show was little Daniel! There really is nothing like Christmas through the eyes of a child! Erika told him that Christmas is about family and he said no, it’s about presents! LOL! Taylor and I played with him and all of his new toys, my favorite was the Lego! I used to love it as a child and still do! After all of the festivities I came home and watched The Force Awakens. Later on I ran over to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to get an order together to go out tomorrow. Today I’ll be in Manhattan all day! I have some friends to see and a little wandering around to do! 🙂

I felt like doing some coloring last night so I pulled out my Altenew Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped the flowers and candles with Altenew Jet Black Crisp Ink onto a piece of Kraft, masking the flowers, and colored them in with my Prismacolor Pencils. I stamped the Congratulations from the set just above the grouping and then all that was left to do was to adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I do love a nice simple card and the sketch look of the stamp set is just great for coloring! I hope that you like my simple card for today! Thank you for coming by and catching up with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Pencil Floral Joy

Pencil Floral Joy

I actually woke up on time yesterday morning! I had some things to do like my laundry before I left for the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. Once I was at the Store I had to fax something for my Parents and it took 10 tries to get it to go through! Who faxes things anymore?! I did have a nice day, Angie and Renee worked on cleaning up and I made my card for today. I left a little early so that I could come home and surprise Daniel! We played with some old Hess Toy Trucks and then watched a few YouTube videos together. I headed over to meet Heather at Geroge’s and had dinner with them. From there Heather and I had a few errands to run and then we met Stephanie back at Heather’s apartment for an early Thirsty Thursday installment! We had a great time like we always do! Today I really do need to work on my Newsletter and tonight I’m going to the movies with Taylor to see Rouge One! 😀

Once again I felt like coloring yesterday so I stamped the Hero Arts Holiday Florals Bold Prints Background Stamp in Hero Arts Black Ink onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock. It took a little over 30 minutes to color in the background with my Prismacolor Pencils and I enjoyed every minute of it! The background is adhered to a piece of Black and that’s adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My joy is from the Hero Arts Joy Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set and is cut from a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock and two pieces of Black. I adhered the gold and black pieces together with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then adhered it to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. The card needed just a little more sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and it’s finished! I’m a big fan of that Holiday Florals Background and love the way it looks colored in! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you for taking some time out of your busier than normal schedule to come by and see what I’m up to! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 224

Brrrr! It’s still cold here! The good news, it’s supposed to go up into the 40’s for the first day of Winter! I’m happy report that I got a lot done at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, not everything that I wanted to but other things came up and needed to be taken care of. Isn’t that always how the day goes?! I had another person make my Holiday Ornament yesterday… Renee’s boyfriend John sat and made one and he did a great job! Angie is on vacation from her day job so she has been at the store, we have had a lot of laughs! After work I had dinner with my Parent’s. They took Winston for a haircut yesterday and he looks all snazzy just in time for Christmas. I had a few errands to run and then I relaxed for a bit. Today I will tackling some more things on my to-do list and then we are having an early edition of Thirsty Thursday tonight! 😀

One of the things that I worked on  yesterday was my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I had the urge to use my Prismacolor Pencils again so I pulled out one of my favorite images to color! That image is from the Concord & 9th Happy Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped it a few times in Hero Arts Intense Black using my Mini MISTI onto a piece of Kraft and then went to work coloring. When I had finished I went back in with my black pencil and darkened in some of the lines and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped the same way. For the background I used another image from the set and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Bronze Embossing Powder. For the card base I used my usual Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and covered the front in a piece of Black. The background is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I did the same to adhere the cake and greeting. I really am enjoying my colored pencils and am especially happy with the way the flower centers turned out! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the last Paper Craft Crew challenge of 2016! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery! Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
