I had a busy day yesterday! There was the Run for the Warriors that closed some of the roads on the way to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store so it took a little longer to get there, all for a good reason! Renee had a guest instructor, Eileen Hull, at the Store yesterday. She was great and had some awesome projects! I had to leave at 12:00 to go home and pick up Taylor, run a few errands and then head over to my Brother’s for Daniel’s 3rd Birthday! He was so cute playing with his cousins and friends! Here is a picture of the birthday boy…

I had to be home by 6:00 to meet Andrew who is helping me with some Store related things. We worked until 12:30 and still have more to go! He is so good at figuring things out and getting stuff done! It’s also easy to be motivated when there is someone else working with you! We have a lot more to do but it feels a bit more manageable! Plus, it’s nice to get to spend some time with him! 😀

So, remember that collage card that I made a week or so ago that I wasn’t thrilled with? Well, I have decided to share it today! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb. I used a piece of Authentique Mighty Collection 12×12 Paper for my background. A piece of Black 110lb is cut out with the Spellbinders Typewriter Shapeablities Die. For the paper in the typewrite I printed a vintage subway map out and adhered it inside a piece of Basic Gray that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames Lawn Cuts. I slid it into the top of the typewriter, it fit perfectly, and then adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My feathers are cut from another piece of the Mighty 12×12 Paper and some Gold Mirror Card using the Spellbinders Feathers Shapeablities Dies. I cut out a piece of Blushing Bride and more Gold Mirror Card using the dies from the Spellbinders Die of the Month #7 Set. All of the pieces are adhered with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Die cut from a piece of Black 110lb and Blushing Bride. I adhered them to each other, slightly offset, with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the card with more 3D Foam Squares. There had to be some sequins, Pretty Pink Posh Gold and Blush to be exact and a Black Enamel Dot placed in the middle of the flower. In the end I grew to like the card! LOL! I hope that you like it too! Thank you for stopping by today! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂

I miss the Summer. I know, I have said it before but I miss shorts and flip flops and the top down in the car. Ok, now that I got that out of the way! Renee and I had a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and Scrap-A-Latte! She had a class with a few teens in the morning and I sent out my reminder email about the Quick Cards Class on Thursday. We also had a guy from Maptoons stop by to talk to us about advertising. He was really nice and we had a good laugh with him. We are going to go with his campaign and see what happens. My Parents stopped by with my little buddy Daniel! We had so much fun looking at things in the store and he was telling Renee about all the things in the storage room. After that Taylor stopped by with her friend Marissa. Two days in a row, I feel like a popular dad! LOL! Later on my friend Marissa and her fiancé came in. Busy day at the store! As an added bonus when I got home I got to see Daniel again! I had dinner with him while he had a little ice cream and watched his cartoons on my Mum’s hi-Pad as he calls it! After that I came home and relaxed for a bit and finished up my card for today’s post. I’ll have to get ready for the Quick Cards class today and see when my new Mama Elephant and Concord & 9th will be arriving!

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

Some fun colors from my friend Sandy! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Hero Arts Orange Soda Ink to the front. My image is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set and I stamped it in Orange Soda, Pumpkin Pie and Green Fields using my Mini MISTI. It’s then cut out with the Lawn Fawn Dotted Circle Stackables along with a piece of Black. The stamped circle is adhered to the black circle with E-Z Runner and then they are both adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. The greeting is cut from more Black using one of the dies from the Spellbinders Fall Botanical Die D-lites and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. A little scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Pumpkin and Shamrock Sequins are added to complete the card. I do love that bouquet stamp, can’t believe that it’s the first time I’m using it! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Color Challenge from Sandy! Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wondrous Wednesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 464

Happy Labor Day my friends! I had a relaxing and fun day yesterday! I got up very late, 10:00AM, did some computer stuff, took a shower and went over to spend some time with my friend Kim and the kiddies. After that I came home and made my card for today. I still love crafting in the Stampin’ Galley and with two days off I got to unpack most of the stuff that I lug back and forth to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store everyday! My Parents went over to my Brother’s to see the kids and I went over to Heather’s to help her get ready for a wedding that she and George went to. From there I ran a few errands and then came home and relaxed. I had a Lean Cuisine for dinner and around 10:30 I headed out to pick up Heather and Geroge. Today I was planning on going into Manhattan but I have had a headache for the past two days, I think it’s alleges, so I started taking Claritin to see if that helps. I think that I will stay in and have a crafty day instead!

Its Monday and you know what that means! It’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

I had picked up this 12×12 Paper Pad a while ago and have been meaning to use it so I did just that on today’s card! The base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I cut up some of the paper from the DCWV Minty Lace 12×12 Paper Pad and used them for my background layers. The really cool black one with the holographic foil is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is another piece of paper cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares Lawn Cuts. I used some more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhere it to the card. My flower is a combination of dies from the Spellbinders Makers Mart Monthly Kits. I cut the flower out of Solar White 80lb and Vellum with the center cut form Black 110lb. The leaves are cut from part of the 12×12 Paper and they are adhered to the card with a 3D Foam Square. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Black 110lb with the right side flagged. I tucked it under the flower and added some Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets and Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish the card. I really love that Paper Pad, especially the holographic text sheet! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Don’t forget to stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s fantastic cards and let’s see your take on the sketch by entering your card into the gallery! Thank you very much for starting your Monday off here! Have a fun and safe Labor Day! 🙂

Seashell Hello

Seashell Hello

I don’t know about you, but I prefer to not have to do much on a Friday! That was not the case yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I did manage to get all of the things that I wanted to get accomplished done, but I was so busy that it was 4:00PM before I knew it! I did get my haircut in the morning and then stopped by Heather’s to pick up a nice salad that she had put together for me! I actually ate it at 3:30, more like linner! LOL! After work I managed to get home in time to see my little Daniel! I got a big hug when I came in the house and we played with monster trucks for a bit before my brother took him home. I watched a little TV when I got o my house and then got an idea for a card so I went into the Stampin’ Galley, still my favorite place to create! Today Renee is having a No-Frills Crop so I will get to spend some time with the ladies! Should be a fun day!

The card that crept into my head last night starts off with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I took some Heidi Swapp Gold and Bronzer Color Shine and flicked it onto the card front. While that dried I used the Spellbinders Seashells Die D-lites to cut out some Ice Gold, Shadow and White Gold Curious Metallic. I embossed it too, love the texture that gives the die cuts! Before adhering the shells to the card with 3D Foam Squares I added a piece of Washi Tape and a thin strip of Gold Mirror Card across the lower half. My greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto a piece of Kraft. I used my Scissors to cut out out and adhered to the card with more 3D Foam Squares. To finish the card I added Pretty Pink Posh Pewter, Rose Gold, Charcoal, Sparkling Clear and Gold Sequins. I actually love the way this card came out! I think it looks just like some shells washed up on the beach! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Yes, I’m holding onto Sumer with all of my might! LOL! Thanks for coming by today! I wish you all great start to your weekend! 🙂

SIP Challenge 62 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 62 – A Sketch!

Hi! Thanks so much for coming by today! It was another absolutely gorgeous day here! The humidity broke and the temps were in the low 80’s. I got another Altenew order at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to replenish some of what is missing and it also included a few new items! I have to get ready for my Partial Die Cutting Class on Wednesday and the massive Lawn Fawn order that will arrive. I need to get that all checked in and ready for Thursday! That’s the day it gets released to the public! Can’t wait to play with all of their new goodies! Wednesday is going to be a crazy busy day at the store! Anyone wanna come by and help?! 😀

So what do I do on Tuesday?! Oh yes, it’s time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we have a nice simple sketch…

SIP Challenge 62 - Sketch

When I sat down to make this card on Saturday it started out as a completely different card. Then I went to look for something and found this paper pad that I forgot I had. That was the inspiration for the rest of the card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Early Espresso. The background is that piece of paper from the Prima Cartographer A4 Paper Pad. Next up is a piece of My Minds Eye Christmas on Market Street Shining Stars Foiled Vellum. The circle is a piece of Gold Mirror Card that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Lawn Cuts. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner, I also hid the adhesive for the Vellum behind it! My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Ranger Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. For the feathers I used the Spellbinders Feathers Shapeabilities Dies to cut out some Kraft Card Stock. I added a little Versa-Mark to the ends and heat embossed some more of the Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder onto them. They are adhered to the gold circle with 3D Foam Squares and a piece of DMC Gold Thread is tied around the top. Three Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card! I love that background paper, so glad that I found it! I also love the way the Vellum softens it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of my fantastic Design Team has come up with to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery so that you might be one of our top three picks! Thanks again for stopping by! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Ooh-La-La Sending Feather Love & August Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Class Cards!

Ooh-La-La Sending Feather Love & August Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Class Cards!

Well, I had a very enjoyable day off! I made sure that I got a little cleaning done. I was going to wash my car but I’m glad that I didn’t, it rained for about an hour in the afternoon. I also made sure that I got a lot of nothing time in too. I think that we all need to just be for a little while every once in a while. I sat outside for a bit in the morning with Daniel, we watched some truck videos on the iPad. I also watched a little TV and ran a few errands last night. Like I said a very nice day! Today I’ll be at The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store getting back in the swing! LOL! Renee is off and will be spending time with her grandkids! Family time is very important, wouldn’t you agree?!

So I was all set to just share the cards from this month’s Card Class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store but around 10:00PM I had the urge to make a card, it just popped into my head! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and Picked Raspberry and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to create my background on a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card. I made sure that it was dry with my Heat Tool and spattered it with some Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink Spray and Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and dried it again with the Heat Tool. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My feather is cut from a piece of Vellum with the Spellbinders Feathers Shapeabilities Dies. I used my Versa-Marker to add the vane and sprinkled on some Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder and heat set that. The Eiffel Tower is cut from Gold Mirror Card using the Spellbinders Ooh-La-La Die D-Lites. I adhered the bottom of the feather with Multi-Matte Medium and the Eiffel Tower with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more Gold Embossing Powder onto more Vellum. I flagged the right side and tucked it under the Tower. I love the simplicity of the card and the cool background! I’ll add the cards from Class at the end of the post! I hope that you enjoy all of the cards for today! Thank you very much for stopping by today! Have a spectacular Sunday! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 207

Howdy peeps! It was a little on the muggy side here yesterday but I don’t mind! The AC is still working in the car! YAY! But it has to compete with the roof and it usually looses! LOL! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store had a nice steady flow of peeps yesterday. I got a few pieces for projects finished too while I FaceTimed with Andrea. Some burgers for dinner when I got home and then I ran to Target, I tend to only really go when I have run out of creamer, is it sad that it’s the most important thing in my fridge?! When I got back to the house I finished putting together my card for today and then Cloroxed the bathroom. I think I may have been a little high before bed!

Mid-week, that means that it’s Paper Craft Crew time and this week we have a sketch…

Washi Tape! I always forget about Washi Tape, lord knows I have enough of it! My card starts off with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Dark Molasses and heat embossed the coffee ring from the Altenew Coffee Talk Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I adhered the square to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The word coffee, from the same set, is heat embossed in more Gold onto a piece of Lemon Sorbet and cut out with my Scissors. The rest of the greeting is stamped in Dark Chocolate Crisp Ink in the lower right corner. I adhered the “coffee” to a strip of 46lb Vellum that I flagged the ends on and adhered that to the square with 3D Foam Squares. In the upper right is a piece of Washi Tape and a piece of Gold Glitter Washi Tape. I used the Spellbinders Hipster 1 and 2 Shapeabilities to cut out some Gold Mirror Card, the coffee cup is adhered with more 3D Foam Squares and the Glasses with Multi-Matte Medium. Finally, some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins finish off the card. I love the fun font in the Coffee Talk Set and the neat eclectic mix of colors and elements on the card! It is definitely true, coffee is my spirit animal! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

Mojo Monday 461

Yet another very warm day here on Long Island! My car apparently thought so too because when I got in it this morning to head over the the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store the AC worked! Maybe it was angry at me? Who knows how long it will last but I’ll take it for now! I got a lot accomplished at the store too! I had a lot of fun getting to know my new watercolors! I apologize in advance, you will be seeing a lot of watercolor in my cards! Taylor came by and spent the day with me which was really nice! We also had a woman and her two daughters come by to crop. They were very nice and she said that they got a lot done! When I got to my Parent’s I had to call Apple because my Dad’s iPhone won’t let him upgrade his iCloud storage, he gets an odd and very unhelpful error message. Apparently Apple thought so too, it has been escalated to the iOS Development Team and I have to wait to hear back from them. After I finished that I ran a few errands and assembled my card for today. I hope to get a lot more accomplish at the store this morning and I have to go to the Post Office, not sure how I’ll manage that!

It’s Monday so that means that it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front in a piece of the Altenew Woodgrain White Paper. My doily like piece is the Spellbinders Triple Tear Nestabilities Die cut from some Lemon Sorbet. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles to cut out a piece of 36lb Vellum and adhered that to the front of the doily. Across the middle is a piece of Lemon Lime. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink on Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper and used my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors to color them in. I was experimenting and wanted an imperfect look so I basically just let the paint do it’s thing. Once they were dry I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. The leaves are adhered to the card with Dot Runner and the flower with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black. I flagged the right side and adhered it over the leaves and flower. A few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst Sequins complete the card. I’m really having fun experimenting with the Mission Gold Watercolors and my Silver Brushes! 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 Design Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery! Thank you for beginning another week here with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Yes, it’s the weekend! The weather here has been just amazing the past few days! The rides home from the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store have been heavenly with the top down. We had a busy day at the store yesterday. Renee had her Kids class and Nick and her daughter Krysta came to help! Her kids are the nicest sweetest people! My Mum and Dad stopped by too. Dad fixed the lock on the front door, he does love when he can fix things and let me tell you, he can fix anything! I snuck out a little early and had dinner with my Parent’s. When I got home I finished my card for today and then ran a few errands. Today there is a crop so I get to see my ladies! We always have a good laugh!

I have a super clean and simple card to share with you for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 248

Yes, I saw the feathers and had to use feathers! LOL! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my MISTI to stamp the flower outline from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and then Heat Embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I did the same with a piece of Lemon Lime and a piece of Tropical Sea. To cut out my feathers I decided where I wanted them to go over the flower on the white and then used the Spellbinders Feather Shapeabilities. They are adhered over the white flower with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I used Multi-Matte Medium and Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhere it to the card. Just for a little more sparkle I added a few Hazel and Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Green and Gold Sequins! I love the way the card turned out, especially the green and teal feathers over the white flower! And yes, I am completely obsessed with the Sentiments & Quotes Set! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you very much for coming by and I wish you all a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

Fab Friday 93

Fab Friday 93

Woo hoo! Happy Friday my peeps! The Watercolor 101 Class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was a big hit! It was nice to see all of my little artists working on their cards! They all did a fantastic job and now they can all confidently watercolor! The rest of the day at the store was nice! Nick is home from Boston, love having him around! Renee had a nice productive day too! She got all of her kits made for her Kids class! By the time I got home it was 9:00, I had a quick bite to eat at my Parent’s before I came home and sat down to make my card for today. Today at the store I have some new Reverse Confetti to check in and I have to continue gathering the goodies for my Holiday Village Classes! That is going to be fun!

Today just happens to be a Fab Friday and this time we have a fun sketch…

Fab Fri 93 8-05-2016

Love that little flourish! The card that I came up with starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took some Heidi Swapp Citron Color Shine and flicked it onto the card front. After that dried I adhered a piece of 3M Black Glitter Washi Tape down the left side. My leaves are cut from Gold Mirror Card using the Spellbinders Romantic Vines Shapeabilities and that’s adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. The greeting is from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. I cut out a piece of patterned paper with the Spellbinders Postage Stamp Nestabilities and adhered it to the bottom of the greeting. That is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. To complete the card I added some Pretty Pink Posh Peacock and Gold Sequins! I love the simplicity of the card and the unexpected bright green spatter with the black and gold! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s inspiration cards and enter yours in the gallery!
