Catherine & Cathy Create!

Hello and welcome to Saturday! It was gloomy here all day again yesterday but they promise some sun today. I have a block party to go to later and hopefully it won’t rain! There will be lots of crafting going on this weekend too. Making my final preparations for my Wednesday departure for Salt Lake City Utah! What are all of you up to this weekend?

Today’s post is for a new challenge blog called Catherine & Cathy Create. They are going to have some fun challenges and today I’m posting my first card for them for their Buttons & Bows Challenge. I don’t know if you noticed the new badge along the right side of my blog but I have been asked to be on the Design Team too! I’m quite excited to get started so here we go!

CCC_CardsChallenge-003

I have been having fun with the freestyle collage style of cards lately and I found the inspiration for this card on Pinterest. The base is Sahara Sand Card Stock trimmed to 4 x 11 and folded in half so I could let some embellishments hang off the side and it would still fit in a standard envelope. I used some Epic Day This & That Washi Tape on the right side. A piece of Pistachio Pudding is cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit Die and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ticket is from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set and is punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. I used the “Vintage” Birds & Blooms Sizzlit to cut out the flower from some linen fabric and used a Candy Dots Brad Base with a Basic Jewels Rhinestone in the middle to hold it together. A Sale-A-Bration button and two Naturals Designer Buttons are also on the card with a Basic Jewels Pearl in the middle of the Pool Party button. The butterfly is from the Best of Butterflies Stamp Set and I used a Q-Tip to color it in with Crisp Cantaloupe. For the greeting I used the Lots of Thanks Stamp Set and angled it on the left. A few vanilla pearl sequins complete the card. I really do like the fun collage style, it makes a nice change up from the usual. Thank you very much for taking some time out of your Saturday to come and see my Catherine & Cathy Create card for their Buttons & Bows Card Challenge. Go and take a look at the blog and say hi to ladies over there by posting one of your cards in the gallery. Have a very enjoyable Saturday!

Create with Connie and Mary 254

Saturday, what a nice day indeed! How are you all faring after your short week? I’m doing well. it was hot and humid here yesterday and we are in for more of the same today. Not complaining, just sharing! Did you all get to place your new catalog orders yesterday?! I did and soon I will have some more fun goodies to feed my creative outlet. I’m off to Jones Beach Theater to see Pitbull & Ke$ha tonight with Heather. I’m a big fan of Pitbull but poor Ke$ha looks like she rolls right out of the dumpster onto the stage. It should be a good night! 🙂

Today’ post – Create with Connie and Mary Colors…

CCMC 254

Ahh, Pool Party and Island Indigo, two of my faves! I wanted a nice clean card and I think that’s just what I got. The base of my card is So Saffron Card Stock. A strip of “Vintage” Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and a piece of Pool Party that is embossed with the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder are each flagged and on the right side. Next, a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Label Love Stamp Set and punched out with the Artisan Label Punch. The center greeting is from the A Round Array Stamp Set and is punched out with the 7/8′ Scallop Circle Punch. Both are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This is a great quick card and would be good for so many different occasions. I love the layout and the simplicity! Thank you for visiting me today to see my Create with Connie and Mary card for this week’s Color Challenge. I hope that you have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. 🙂

Paper Craft Crew #38

Ahh… Wednesday, halfway there! How is your week going so far? Mine is pretty good, no complaints. It was a pretty nice day here yesterday, not too cold, not too hot. It sprinkled for a few minutes and then it was done. It is raining this morning but I don’t think it’s supposed to do it all day. I have a workshop tomorrow night with my friend Melissa. It will be a good time, a small crafty gathering. I’ll post the cards sometime in the future so you can see what we made. 🙂

On a fun note, a fellow demonstrator was inspired by the card that I made last week for Fab Friday. Erica Cerwin did a beautiful job on her card and was kind enough to mention me on her blog. You can see her post here and the card that I made here.

Today’s card – Paper Craft Crew Sketch 38…

PCCCS038 Sketch 4-17-2013

I knew that when I saw it was going to keep the butterfly. The base of my card is Wisteria Wonder and the background is Daffodil Delight stamped with the Woodgrain Background Stamp inked in Daffodil Delight. The is a doily from the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit and the rounded flag from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits. The large flower is from the Floral Frames Collection Framelits and it’s embossed with the “Vintage” Vine Street Embossing Folder. A Beautiful Wings butterfly and a rolled paper rose give the card some dimension. The greeting is from the Wacky Wishes Host(ess) Stamp Set and some Itty Bitty Punch Pack flowers with Basic Jewels Pearls complete the card. I hope that you like my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for this week’s sketch challenge.

They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!

Hey there, how are you today? Things are ok here. Would you believe that it snowed again today, just for a little bit, but it snowed! It was overcast and rainy all day. I am so ready for warm weather. Is it just me or does this winter seem exceptionally long? Oh Mother Nature… whatever we did to make you mad I apologize, can we have some warm now… please?!

It’s Tuesday so today I have my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card for you. This week’s sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…

Mojo286

Hmm… I think square! LOL! The base of my card is Island Indigo Card Stock and the background is just a plain piece of Sahara Sand. The flag is a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack (now vintage!). The band across the middle is piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed it with a piece of Island Indigo. The scallop across the bottom is made by punching some of the stamped images, stamped in Island Indigo, from the A Round Array Stamp Set that is a peek set form the 2013-2014 Catalog! You can order it early, pretty neat huh?! They are adhered to the back of the band with SNAIL and the band to the base with the same. The greeting is also from the A Round Array Stamp Set, stamped in Island Indigo and backed with a piece of Island Indigo that I punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. I used the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce around the edge. The stamped image is then adhered to it with SNAIL and to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I think the A Round Array set is nice and versatile and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us! I hope that you enjoyed my Mojo Monday Sketch challenge card. Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments! You guys rock!

Paper Craft Crew Sketch 34

Ahh, Thursday, I like you so much better than Monday! How are we all today? I’m good, looking forward to the weekend as always. Yesterday felt a little long but today will be a bit longer. I’m off to Manhattan after work, hopefully it will be finished raining/snowing/freezing by the time I head in. They had a derailment on the LIRR on Monday and it has messed up the trains all week. Maybe that will be cleared up tomorrow too, we can only hope. Did you all enjoy the Control Freaks Blog Tour yesterday?! I always have so much fun making my projects with that super talented group. If you didn’t get a chance to take a look be sure to, there were some great projects!

Today I have my post for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge. This time around we have a sketch challenge…

PCCCS036 3-20-2013 Sketch Spring

Some really neat suggestions in the sketch wouldn’t you agree?! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack from Sale-A-Bration. You only have until tomorrow to place you order and qualify for your free Sale-A-Braiton goodies and then it’s gone again until next year. I cut out a doily from the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit in Whisper White. The rounded scallop flag and the flagged pieces are cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies from Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango. All three of the pieces are adhered under a piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The “flowers” are from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set (also from Sale-A-Bration) and are stamped in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. For the greeting I use the stamp from the first Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped it in Island Indigo. It is punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and adhered to the embossed piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals along with the “flowers”. I really like the stamp from the Paper Pumpkin Set, it has that casual feel to it. I hope that you enjoyed my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for this week’s sketch challenge. Don’t forget to see what the other designers have come up with over at the Paper Craft Crew blog. Thank you for checking in and I hope you have an awesome day!

Another fun filled Monday… how about you? I fixed an iPhone back cover last night, always fun! It snowed here again, we got about an inch. I really am so ready for spring. If any of you have some extra warm weather that you could send this way please do so! Thanks! 🙂

It’s Tuesday so that means it’s time for another Mojo Monday Sketch. This week we have a very different sketch from Julee Tilman…

I wanted to use some more of the Sale-A-Bration goodies before it ends in just three short days. Better get those last minute orders in before it’s too late! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a plain piece of Sahara Sand. I used a piece of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper on the right side and covered it with strips of Island Indigo that I embossed with the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A piece of 7/8″ Natural Trim Ribbon goes across the middle and is adhered around the back with Sticky Strip. The corners are made by punching a piece of Summer Starfruit with the 1″ Square Punch and cutting it in half. I stamped it with the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set in Summer Starfruit and some SNAIL holds them in each corner. The greeting is from the Dude, You’re Welcome Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party and cut out with a Sizzix Circle Framelit. I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two little tickets from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set are punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and one of the buttons form the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack, threaded with some Whisper White Bakers Twine, holds them in place with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I think the greeting works well with the Sycamore Street DSP and the card would work for a man or a woman. I hope that you enjoyed my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. Thank you for checking in and I hope that you have a great day! Don’t forget to send some of that warm weather… Thanks!

Paper Players #137 :-)

Hello there! Wow! That was a long day yesterday! I went to bed at 12:00am, got up at 3:00am, went to the airport, drove into the city, napped from 5:00am to 6:30am and then ran around the city until 5:30pm. To cap it off it snowed almost the whole day! I got home around 6:20pm and me and the child went to Panera for dinner. I’m a little tired still! I hope you all had a good day yesterday.

Sunday already… that means it’s time for another Paper Players Challenge. This week we have cool sketch from the amazing Ann…

Paper Players #137 Sketch 3-17-2013

I have been wanting to use the Swallowtail Stamp from the Spring Catalog as a background and I thought this would be the perfect card for it. The base of my card is Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. I stamped the Swallowtail Stamp in Raspberry Ripple on a piece of Very Vanilla. Before I adhered the panel to the card I used some Sticky Strip to adhere the piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the back. Some Vellum Card Stock (I have been quite into Vellum lately!) Is punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch and embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I punched some butterflies out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch from some Raspberry Ripple and adhered them to the Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A Mini Glue Dot is the strategically placed behind each one to “invisibly” hold them to the card. The greeting is from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple. Some Basic Jewels Rhinestones add a little bling and finish off the card. I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Clean and Simple Sketch from Ann. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards over at the Paper Players blog. Thank you very much for stopping by, I hope that you have a lovely Sunday!

Pals Paper Arts 154

Yup, it’s Monday again! Ugh! Anyway, enough complaining. Did you all have a good weekend? I had a nice one. I spent some time with the child and got some crafting done. Next weekend I’m going to try and fit in some relaxing, we’ll see how that goes. The weather you ask… LOL… it was a bit chillier than they said it was going to be yesterday but I have high hopes for today. High as in temperature!

Today I have my Pals Paper Arts card for you. This time the fine folks over there have given us a color challenge…

PPA 154

A different color combination, not one that I would have thought of. The base of my card is Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. The paper I used for the background is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. For the greeting I choose the Vintage Verses Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration. I stamped it on a Very Vanilla Square in Calypso Coral and backed it with a piece of Calypso Coral. I used the Labels Collection Framelits Dies to cut out the middle of a piece of Raspberry Ripple and adhered it over the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flower is punched out from a piece of Calypso Coral with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and there is a Basic Jewel Pearl in the middle. I stamped the butterflies from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set, also from Sale-A-Bration, in Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla. They are adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots and I slightly bent the wings up a little. I like the color combination a lot more than I thought I would. The three colors actually go quite well together. I hope you enjoyed my Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge card and as always, thank you very much for visiting! I hope you have an interesting Monday!

Paper Players 136 :-)

A very good Sunday morning to you all! Did you forget to spring forward? If it has the word spring in it I will definitely remember! We loose an hour but it’s a for a good cause, warmer weather is on the way. It was actually pretty nice here yesterday. Most of the snow is gone and I think it got up to around 50 degrees. It was so nice that I did drive around with top down on the car, just for a little while. 🙂

Sunday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. As always, before I get to this week I want to congratulate Stacey for being my choice for Cut Above for last weeks In Stitches challenge. You can see the winners list here. This week we have a color challenge for the wonderful Nance…

Paper Players #136 Color 3-10-2013

I was a little worried when I first saw this combination but after playing for a bit I love it! The base of my card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I used some White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and my heat tool to emboss the greeting from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration right on the base. Directly above that is a piece of paper from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Pack. Next, I adhered a Tea Lace Paper Doily with some SNAIL. The tag is created with my Simply Scored and some Pool Party. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlit to cut out two piece of Lucky Limeade. The rolled paper roses are made using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and some Regal Rose. A little inward circular cutting with my Paper Snips and some hot glue and they are ready to be adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots. The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set. I stamped them in Regal Rose and used the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches to punch them out. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere both them and the tag to the card. I have been wanting to make some rolled paper roses for a while, I don’t know why I put it off for so long, they were super easy to make. I hpoe that you enjoyed my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s color challenge from Nance. Thank for checking in with me today and I hope that you enjoy your Sunday!

Trans-Atlantic Thanks

Yeah! Happy Saturday! Thank god that week is done. It really did feel like the longest week ever. I wasn’t the only one who felt that way, I took a poll. So it snowed here most of the day yesterday. I think the total was 8 inches but the funny thing was after 12:00PM the more it snowed the less there was on the ground. I don’t think I have ever seen that before. I’m looking forward to the warmer temperatures this week. I don’t have any plans for this weekend, just going to lay low and get some crafting done, how about you?

Today’s post is for a card that I made to send to my Aunt in England. She is a wonderful person, very kind and generous. I needed a card that would be able to make the journey so I had to keep the embellishments to a minimum. I also thought that something English on the card would be fun. The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the border from the Sent with Love Stamp Set in Riding Hood Red. The stamps on the card are from a long retired set called Office Ephemera. I got it from ebay a while ago, mainly for the script and stamp images. I stamped them in Sahara Sand randomly. The phone box is from the Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration and is stamped in Basic Black and cut out with the Ovals Framelits. The greeting is form the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set and is stamped in Riding Hood Red with the right side flagged. Both the oval and the greeting are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the border from the Sent with Love set and the way it gives the card that airmail feel. I hope that you enjoyed my Trans-Atlantic Thank You and thank you f0r stopping by today! Here’s to an very enjoyable Saturday!
