SIP Challenge 33 – Colors!

Hello everyone and welcome to Tuesday! It was a lovely warm day here yesterday, it got up into the 50’s! That I can definitely get use to! I’m sure that it won’t last for long so I will relish it while I can! I had a relatively productive morning. I got to speak to my Aunt Shirley in England on FaceTime for a bit and then crafted with Andrea over FaceTime. I use FaceTime a lot! Taylor came by with Kiera in the afternoon and we all had dinner at my parent’s. My shows were on last night, the X-Files and Lucifer and both were great! This morning Andrew is coming by and we are going to take Sandy to the airport and then work on researching some stuff. I haven’t seen him in ages so it will be good to spend some time together!

It’s time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge and this week we have a timely color combo for you…

SIP Challenge 33 - Colors 800

I love the colors and wanted to do a little watercoloring! I have had this idea in my head for a while so I thought that it was time to get it out! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card taped down with Blue Painter’s Tape to a board for my “canvas”. I laid down a heart die and watercolored the heart staying about 1/4″ inside the die. For the heart I mixed some Royal Langnickel Crimson Red with some White and dried it with my Heat Tool. I added some more white on top and then used Prussian Blue mixed with White to paint around the heart. I dried that with my Heat Tool too. The gold hearts are painted freehand using Fintec Pharaonen Gold. I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The hello is cut from Black 110lb using the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Craft Die. I adhered them to each other and the card using Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The love is from the Simon Says Stamp Cute Snowflakes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black Ink. I love the way the blue really makes the red heart pop and those Finetec Watercolors are amazing! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge! Take a quick click over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with and share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting today! Have a thoroughly wonderful Tuesday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew Theme 171

So how is your week going so far? Mine isn’t too bad, I actually got a lot accomplished around the house yesterday! Brian came over in the morning and helped me rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and it seems much bigger now! I dusted and vacuumed the whole house and then went on a purge spree! Love when I get in that mood! I like to keep boxes that things come in, not the best idea when you have a very small apartment! I threw out a ton of boxes and other crap that I no longer need! Feels so good! I had dinner with my parents, brother and Daniel. He was a bit cranky yesterday because he skipped his nap! I get like that too! LOL! Later on I ran up to Michael’s to get a few supplies and then came home and crafted for a bit before watching Limitless! Love that show!

Well, it’s Wednesday and that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s challenge and it’s a theme…

PCCCS171 DT Theme 11-18-2015

Thank you cards, you can never have enough of those! My card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and I covered the entire front in a piece of Kraft Card Stock. The background is a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card that I stamped some leaves, well, a lot of leaves from the Simon Says Stamp Apple of My Pie Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and then heat embossed them with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. They are colored in with my Paintbrush, some water and Yellow Ochre, Vermillion, Crimson Red and Deep Green Royal Langnickel Watercolors. Here is what the panel looks like by itself…

After they dried I adhered the panel to the card with Tombo Extreme Adhesive. The greeting is also form the Apple of My Pie Stanp Set and is heat embossed with more Gold on Vellum. I cut the frame out with the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese Lawn Cut from another piece of Kraft, heat embossed a additional greeting on the bottom of the frame and adhered the greeting to it. I decided at the last minute that I could make this a shaker card so I adhered 3M Foam Tape along the edges and filled it with some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Confetti. I do love that greeting and the way that you can still make out the leaves behind it and see the confetti! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Theme challenge! Stop by the blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have done and enter your card in the gallery! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Wow! I can’t believe that it’s Thursday already! I had a nice day at Scrap-A-Latte yesterday. I started the cutting for Renee’s Advent Class and got some of my own stuff done too. My friend Paul stopped by to see me and we got caught up. When I got home I had some stew that mum had made and then ran over to BestBuy to pick up the new Apple TV. From there I met up with Louis and we ran over to Century21 so he could return some things and then we stopped and got Starbucks before heading back to my house to play with the Apple TV. It’s pretty neat and easy to set up, you use your iPhone and it transfers all of the settings to the Apple TV. We were watching movie trailers, videos and YouTube in no time! This morning I have to work on finishing up my prep work for tomorrow night’s class at The Ink Pad. Speaking of The Ink Pad, Barbara wrote a nice little article up about me and I’m featured on their blog! Click HERE to take a look!

My card for today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #269

I haven’t done any watercoloring in a while so I did some on today’s card. The card base is Recollections Ivory 110lb Card Stock with the entire front covered in a piece of paper from the Midnight Magic 6×6 Paper Pad. The strip down the left is a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Paper that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I then gave it a good coat of Royal Langnickel Burnt Umber and then used a paper towel to take off some of the color. When it dried it had this really cool authentic wood look! I used some Tombo Extreme Adhesive to adhere it to the card. My panel is another piece of Watercolor Paper cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Giving Thanks Die and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. Next up are my leaves that are also cut from Watercolor Paper using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Leaves Lawn Cuts. I used Yellow Ochre, Vermillion, Crimson Red, Violet and Deep Green to paint on the colors layering the paint a few time before adhering them to the card with Glue Dots. A little sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins across the leaves completes the card! I love the way the leaves and “wood” look watercolored and that Giving Thanks Die is neat! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks for your time today! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂
