Hey there! Happy Saturday to you! We had a rainy drizzly day here yesterday. I spent most of it in the house watching TV, it was just one of those kinds of days. I did go over and have dinner with my Parents and later on in the evening Taylor came by and we watched Dr. Strange. Today I’m off to Manhattan again this time to see my friend Kim! Should be a good day! 😀

My card that I have to share with you today uses the June My Monthly Hero Kit! I used my MISTI to repeatedly stamp some of the elephants in Wet Cement onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock along with a larger one onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. The single elephant is cut out with the Coordinating Die. I stamped the grass along the bottom to even out the card. The sunset die is used to cut out a piece of Orange Vellum and I heat embossed my greeting in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder in the upper left. The large elephant is adhered to the Vellum with 3M Foam Tape and then the vellum to the card with Vellum Adhesive. I love the outlines of all of the elephants, especially the big one in front of the sunset! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you for visiting! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Sweet Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday

Sweet Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday

Crop days are always fun at the Store! It was Chevonne’s Birthday so we had cake! My friend Louis came by to show me his new Honda CR-V, so good to see him! I got to discuss This is Us with Linda! My friend Michelle stopped by too, so nice to see her! She picked up a few goodies and I can’t wait to see what she makes with them! After work I came home and went over to my Parent’s and spent some time with them, my Brother, Erika, Daniel, Tristan and Taylor! I even got a little group selfie…

Yes, I look a little bit like a fool, trying to get Tristan to smile! They are such good little kids! After that it was home to do a little organizing! Today is the last day to place your Lawn Fawn Pre-Order with the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! You can click HERE to go to the Collection! Tonight I’ll be getting the order ready! Can’t wait to get all those new goodies into the Store! 😀

For some reason I had a craving for mint chocolate chip ice cream yesterday so I decided that the card version would be a lot less calories! I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the ice cream and cones onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and an extra one for the main image. To stamp them I used Mint Julep, Tide Pool, Soft Brown and Cup O Joe. The single one is cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. My stamped background is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. I cut a piece of 48lb Vellum to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The die cut ice cream and cone is adhered to the Vellum with 3D Foam Squares and then I added more behind it to adhere it to the card. I love the way the Vellum really softens the busy stamped background and highlights the single come and greeting! I hope that you like my card for today! I thank you for coming by and wish you a nice easy Sunday! 🙂

Stellar Sparkly City

Stellar Sparkly City

The sun finally shone yesterday, nice and bright but it was wicked windy again. They are saying that we might get snow on Friday and Saturday. Big bummer! Renee and I had another lovely day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. The construction is winding down and the leaks have finally stopped! I worked on some of my projects and so did Renee. After work I had dinner with my Parents and talked to my friend Sue for a bit. Then I straightened up the house, got to keep on top of that! LOL! A quick run to get gas and to Target and then a little TV before bed. I have heard from a few people that I need to watch This is Us. Do any of you watch it and if so what do you think? 😀

It’s day three of my big sale over at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! Today all Hero Arts is 25% off! Use discount code CHANEW20173!

I actually made today’s card and then looked at this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and decided that it would work for the sketch…

My card base is the usual Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Kraft. From a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card Stock and Gold Mirror Card I cut out the skyline and bridge using the Hero Arts Skyline Fancy Dies. I cut the skyline apart so that it would cover the entire length of the card and adhered it with E-Z Runner, the bridge is adhered with 3m Foam Tape. My tag is a pice of Ionized Curious Metallic that I cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Tags Dies, the reinforcement is cut from Gold Glitter Card Stock. I adhered the reinforcement to the tag and then tied a piece of May Arts Natural Twine though the top. My greeting and all of the images are from the Hero Arts Hipster at Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Versa-Mark and Onyx Black onto 48lb Vellum. The Onyx Black ones are heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder and the bicycle and camera are heat embossed in Gold and Silver. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out everything except the cassette tape, that’s cut out with my Scissors, and used a combination of E-Z Runner and Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape to adhered them to the tag. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold onto another piece of 48lb Vellum and adhered around the back of the tag. I added some 3M Foam Tape to the tag to adhere it to the card. You know how much I love a city scene card and this one may just be my favorite! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you so much for taking some time to come by and visit! Have a super Thursday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 478

Mojo Monday 478

Day one of 2017 done! The crop at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and Scrap-A-Latte was fun! It really always amazes me how much stuff the ladies bring with them. At least two or more trips to the car to bring all of their stuff in! I do like watching all of the creativity while they work. I got my card for today done early too. Must have been all of that creativity! When I got home I had some dinner with my Parent’s, Mum made beer battered fish and chips! After dinner I watched Star Trek – Beyond and then P.S. I Love You, how’s that for both ends of the spectrum?! You have to balance all of the explosions with a little mushiness! Today, lots of projects to work on! Loves me a little craftiness! 😀

It’s the first Monday of the New Year and time for the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2107…

I was in the mood for stamping and I wanted to change it up a bit so I layered! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Kraft and Solar White 80lb and placed them in my MISTI and stamped them with the greenery from the Concord & 9th Flourish Photopolymer Stamp Set a few times with Altenew Forest Glades Crisp Ink. I added a piece of printer paper and then lined up my circle that I cut out using the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies and stamped again. Next I stamped the flowers from the set in Deep Iris, Midnight Violet, Lavender Fields, Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie and Peach Perfect Crisp Ink. The white panel is adhered to the Kraft wth E-Z Runner, I hid the adhesive for the Vellum behind the circle and the strip of Gold Glitter Card Stock that goes across the lower half of the card. My circle is then adhered with Fun Foam and more E-Z Runner. For the greeting I used the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card and two pieces of Black. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray and to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. A little cascade of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins completes the card! I do love the Flourish set and Altenew Crisp Inks, I’m also pretty happy with the way the layered look turned out! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the first Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge of 2017! Go over and check out the rest of the Team’s cards on the BLOG and we hope that you will play along by adding your card to the gallery! Thank you for coming to by to see me on the first Monday of the year! Hope it’s off to a great start! 🙂

Golden Pewter Pine Joy

Golden Pewter Pine Joy

It was just me and Angie at the Store yesterday. Renee headed down to her Parent’s with Nicholas for Christmas. I had a few orders to take to the Post Office and then some people came in to pick up a few things I had on hold. Heather went to the New York & Co. across the street so I met her there and then we stopped back at the Store to get my things. I stopped home and then went over to Geroge’s for a bit. The rest of the evening was quiet, dinner with my Parent’s and then a few movies. Today I have some projects to work on and some last minute gifts to get, I always wait until the last minute to shop! 🙂

I did make a card last night too. I like the simple elegant feel I think that it has. I used the Hero Arts Holiday Florals Bold Prints Background Stamp and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Basic Gray. Then I used the Concord & 9th Joy Die to cut out the letters and adhered them with 3M Foam Tape to a piece of Champagne Curious Metallic. Across the bottom of my card base, Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, I adhered a piece of Gold Washi Tape. I then adhered the panel with the Joy using E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. My pine boughs are cut from Galvanized Curious Metallic using the Concord & 9th Take a Bough Die. I snipped them in half and adhered them behind the panel with more E-Z Runner. A very simple but elegant card! I hope that you like today’s card! Thanks for my Christmas Eve visit! I wish you all a very Happy Christmas! 🙂

Floral Merry Christmas

Floral Merry Christmas

Happy weekend! It was another chilly day yesterday and we are to have some snow and rain today. The only consolation is that tomorrow it’s supposed get up into the 50’s! What a nice day I had at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! The Card Class was great and everyone had a fun time! The night group is always a great group and they all had their cards finished in two hours! After work I headed over to Heather’s to help her take some of the Christmas presents over to Geroge’s house. He was out to dinner with friends so I got Heather on a Friday night! We laughed and watched some YouTube videos before I headed home around 12:30. Today Renee has a No-Frills Crop so I will get to see some of my ladies! I also have the pleasure of attending my old job’s Holiday Party! I’m going to pick up Danielle and head over later on tonight! It will be fun to see everyone again!

I just had to share this picture of Daniel and Tristan, it was one of the ones that they choose for their Christmas card this year…

daniel-tristan-xmas-2016

They are both just so cute! It looks like they should be in a children’s clothing ad! I know, I’m biased! 😀

Today I have a quick simple card to share with you that uses a spring themed die for a Christmas card! I used the Hero Arts Floral Border with Frame Fancy Die to cut out the center of a piece of Herb Garden. To make some of the flowers and butterflies stand out I used my Versa-Mark Pen and some Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder! I die cut the merry using the Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Set from a piece of Gold Mirror Card and two pieces of Black 110lb. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The frame is then held over a piece of Chinese Red and the merry is put into place so that I could determine where to heat emboss the Christmas. I adhered the red to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Some 3M Foam Tape pieces are added to the back of the frame and it’s adhered to the red. I adhered the merry to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and used some more to add a bunch of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins! I do love that Floral Frame, especially with the small heat embossed sections and think that it makes for pretty Christmas card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for stopping by! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂

Paper Players 325

Paper Players 325

It was overcast and dreary all day yesterday. The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was good like it always is, I got some things done and Renee and Angie worked on their projects all day. I snuck out a little early so that I could get the plastic ornaments that I needed for today’s class. After I did that I had dinner with my Parents and then came home and worked on today’s card. The dreary weather took a turn for the worse, it snowed last night! It’s way too early for that! Today I have my Ornament Class at the Store, that will be fun! 😀

Since there is no Mojo Monday for the rest of the year I get to share my card for the week’s Paper Players challenge…

paper-players-325

It’s their last challenge for the year too! I knew what I wanted to use for the card, I just wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to use it! I got a few goodies from Ellen Hutson the other day, I just couldn’t resist some of the new stamps and dies that they had! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Essentials by Ellen Poinsettia & Pine Dies to cut out some Brushed Silver Metallic Card Stock and Dark Gold Glitter Paper. I adhered the pine branches to the card with 1/8″ Score-Tape and the pinecones with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The peace is from the Essentials by Ellen Holiday Words Dies and is cut from a piece of Pluto Stardream Metallic and two pieces of Black 110lb. I adhered them to each other with more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the card with 3M Foam Tape. All that was left to do was to add a few Platinum and Gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequins! I do love the dies, especially the Poinsettia & Pine, love those scribbly pinecones! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for starting your week off with a visit here! I wish you all a very happy Monday! 🙂

Dapper Cheers New Year!

Dapper Cheers New Year!

I had such a nice day in Manhattan yesterday! Despite the packed train on the way in! It was so nice to see Jim and Diane! They really are two of the nicest people and kindest too! After I was done visiting with them I headed down to the Subway to make my way to The Ink Pad. The train was so crowded I didn’t have to hold on to anything! Once I got to Union Square I had a nice if not really chilly walk over to the store. It was so good to see Anna and she had some surprise news for me! She ran off to Vegas with her longtime boyfriend and got hitched! How fun is that?! We had lunch together and got all caught up! I was hoping to hear from my friend Kim so that I could see her too but by the time she text me I was already on the train on the way home. I did get to sit next to a very nice lady and we talked all the way! She had gone into the city to see the Radio City Christmas Show for the first time and loved it! Dad retrieved me from the station and we had Chinese food for Dinner. After that Taylor and I went to Walmart and I bumped into my friends Dorothy and her hubby! We chatted for a bit, I love running into peeps when I’m out, such a nice surprise! Today I’m back at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, I hope that Renee is feeling better!

I did manage to get one picture before I left the city. I had wanted to take more and stop by the tree and Bryant Park, I’ll go there the next time. This is 34th Street looking down at Macy’s, see how packed it was?!

34th-st-macys-2016

When I got home I had to make a card for today and decided that I needed to play with some of the add-ons for the December My Monthly Hero Kit! To start the card I used the Hero Arts Party Confetti Background Die to cut out a piece of Black Card Stock and that is adhered to a piece of Gold Mirror Card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. All of my images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Happy New Year Stamp & Cut. I heat embossed the greeting in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a strip of 48lb Vellum and folded the edges over the background before adhering it to a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed the clock, 2017 and 6 in more Gold onto more Vellum. The fireworks and top hat are heat embossed in Hero Arts Black Sparkle Embossing Powder onto Super Gold Curious Metallic. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out the clock, fireworks and top hat. The Vellum pieces are adhered with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape and the rest with Black 3D Foam Squares. I love that Party Confetti Background Die, especially over the Gold Mirror Card in Black. Makes for an elegant and festive card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for coming by to share in a little of my day! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Happy weekend! It’s extra happy for me… I’m off to Manhattan to see my friends Jim and Diane and then down to The Ink Pad to see Anna! It will be cold but I don’t seem to notice it as much when I’m in the city! I got a lot accomplished at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, more than I though I would! Poor Renee is sick and went home early but Angie was there with me. On my car ride home I spoke to Heather, she is off to New Orleans for a few days with George. I had dinner at my Parent’s and then came home and made today’s card. What’s on for you this weekend?!

The card that I created last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

freshly-made-sketches-266

I had some happy mail waiting for me when I got home last night, the December My Monthly Hero Kit! I couldn’t wait to play with it! Today’s card took me about an hour from concept to done! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used one of the dies from the Kit to cut out the burst from a piece of Super Gold Curious Metallic and then popped up the pieces and adhered it to the card base with E-Z Runner. Next up is a piece of Blueprint Curious Metallic that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Geometric Next Level 3D Embossing Folder. That is adhered with some strategically placed 3D Foam Squares. My martini is created with the Hero Arts Martini Fancy Dies, I cut out the glass from Ice Gold Curious Metallic and also cut out two pieces of Acetate. On piece of the Acetate is adhered to the back of the glass with E-Z Runner Micro, then some 3M Foam Tape is added to the back. I sprinkled in some Recollections Metallic Glitter Shapes and added the second piece of Acetate to the back. My lemon twist and olive are cut from Solar White 110lb, I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and Lemon Yellow, Green Hills, Forever Green and Red Royal to color them. The “toothpick” is cut from a piece of Adhesive Wood Sheet and Solar White 110lb, I adhered them to each other and added a little Multi-Matte Medium to the bottom to adhere it to the card. Some 3D Foam Squares adhere the martini glass and olive in place. The lemon twist is adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. Finally I cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card and two pieces of Solar White 110lb with the cheers die from the Kit. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the card with more 3M Foam Tape. I really love this month’s Kit!! So many cool things in the Kit and the Add-Ons are just as great! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you so much for spending some of your Saturday with me! Have an amazing day! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 220

Paper Craft Crew 220

It was another windy, chilly day yesterday. I did get a lot accomplished at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and Taylor even came up to see me! After work I stopped home to drop off my stuff and then headed over to Heather’s so that we could go out to Bohemia and visit our friends Patti and Tom and their two daughters. We had a nice evening and I even got to drive Heather’s new car home! Today the Store is closed but I have to run over there and wait for UPS and FedEx to deliver some packages. After that I’m going to head over to my old office and visit my former co-workers. It’s been ages since I have seen Nancy and I can’t wait to catch up with her! 😀

Today is Wednesday and time for a new Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

pcccs220-dt-sketch-11-23-2016

I turned the sketch sideways and made my card that way! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the snowflakes from the Concord & 9th Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and then added a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Tape along the bottom right. Next up is a panel of Ice Gold Curious Metallic that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Dotted Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts. The panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My cup, spoon and marshmallows are from the Concord & 9th Let’s Chat Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed all of the images, the cup in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and the spoon in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder both onto Gold Mirror Card. The marshmallows are heat embossed in more white onto a piece of Solar White 110lb and I cut all of the images out with my Scissors. The JOY is cut from American Crafts Gold Glitter Card using the Concord & 9th Joy Die. All of the pieces are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins for some extra sparkle and the card is done! I love the gold with the white, it makes for a very subtle and elegant card don’t you think? I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for taking some time out of your busy day to stop by! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
