SIP Challenge 117 – Watercolor!

SIP Challenge 117 – Watercolor!

A cloudy day but not too bad. We are to get some of the latest tropical storm later today and tomorrow. I got a lot done in the morning yesterday and even more in the afternoon! Heather and Taylor both stopped by and I decided that it was high time that I fixed the broken faucet in the kitchen so we went to the new Home Depot and picked one up. I have to say that changing a faucet is definitely not one of my favorite things to do, no room to work under the sink but I got it done in about 45 minutes! Last night Heather came back and we ran to Bead, Bath & Beyond. Today I have to find some things to do in the house again! 😀

I have the pleasure of sharing my Design Team card with you today for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I was definitely inspired by the graphic for this one! To begin I smooshed some Mermaid Lagoon onto a piece of Acetate and spritzed it with some water before adding it to a piece of Canson 140lb Watercolor Card. I repeated the same process with Wilted Violet and again with Mermaid Lagoon. Because I’m impatient I used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying! The flower and leaves are cut from Gold Mirror Card using The Ton Petal Cut Peonies Standalone Dies and are adhered to the panel with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I added the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is stamped in Onyx Black. It’s from the Mama Elephant Labeled Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set. I adhered it and some Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Sea Breeze, Gold and Ocean Spray Sequins with Multi-Matte Medium and the card is done. I love the delicate die cut and watercolor background with the unexpected “label” greeting! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! We hope that you will pay a visit to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and share your masterpiece with us in the gallery! Thank you for coming by and have a great Tuesday! 🙂

OSAT July Blog Hop – Very Vintage!

OSAT July Blog Hop – Very Vintage!

Another nice sunny day and I managed to be productive again! I got a few things done in the morning and watched a little TV. Jim came by after work and we had Chinese for dinner and watched Maleficent, still love that movie! I also ran over to Heather’s for a bit before calling it a night. Today I have lots more computer related stuff to get done. No TV until it is! LOL! 😀

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the clever Jeanna Bohanon’s blog, welcome! This month we have a Vintage Theme! I’m not very good at vintage but I did have a lot of fun making my card!!

I started the card by choosing a piece of paper from the Prima Jodie Lee Butterfly A4 Paper Pad and I used the Tim Holtz Mixed Media #2 Dies to cut out the upper left corner. It is adhered to a piece of Early Espresso with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The butterfly is cut from another piece of paper from the same pad and a piece of Solar White 110lb. I coated the white with Versa-Mark and dipped it into my Hero Arts Copper Embossing Power and heat embossed it. Some more Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive adheres the two butterfly pieces together. My greeting is from the Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more Copper onto a piece of 65lb Vellum. I folded the edges around the back of the background and adhered it to a card base Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The butterfly is adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape and just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins complete the card. I do love that paper and the Mixed Media Die along with the butterfly! Makes for a fun card!

Snowy Summer Mountains

Snowy Summer Mountains

Hello and a happy Saturday to you! It rained a little here yesterday and was sunny too, just couldn’t make up it’s mind! I managed to get some crafting done in the morning and then had dinner with my Parents. Taylor came by again, I guess she really does like spending time with me, I must be a cool dad! LOL! We ran some errands and talked for a while. Today is Tristan’s first birthday party! I’ll be sure and get some pictures, even I have to steal them off of the shared album! Should be a fun time! 😀

I was missing the lake this weekend and somehow this card came out of that! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Marina Mist. I used the Hero Arts Snowy Drifts Fancy Dies to cut out two pieces of Garden Green. To give them a little more definition I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Pine Needles Distress Ink to the tops. I then heat embossed my greeting from the Hero Arts You’re So Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The two pieces are then adhered to the card. That lovely frame is cut from a piece of Desert Storm 80lb with the Hero Arts Floral Border with Frame Die and is adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I love when you can use a winter set to make a nice summery card! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! I thank you for visiting and wish you a superb Saturday! 🙂

Magical Pink Birthday

Magical Pink Birthday

Despite the overcast weather and a little bit of drizzle in the afternoon I had a really nice day in Manhattan yesterday! The train was empty on the way in and on the way home! I went and visited my friends Jon and Mary in the morning and then walked from 86th and West End Avenue to 57th and Lexington Avenue. I got my steps in yesterday, a total of 6 1/2 miles! I wandered around Midtown and then went to visit my friend Carolyn and got to meet her parents! They were very nice people! After the city I stopped home and dropped off my backpack and went over to BK Sweeney’s to meet my friend Jim for dinner. I also ran into my friend Melissa, so great to see her! After a little coffee at Starbucks and some dessert I called it a night. I’ll be happy to be back at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store today, I have missed it!

The card that I have to share with you today is one that I made for one of Taylor’s friends for her birthday a while ago. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry to a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor card and spritzed it with a little water. My flying unicorn is from the Waffle Flower Magical Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I added a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the wings. The magical is cut out using the Waffle Flower Magical Word Die from a piece of Silver Glitter Paper. My background is adhered to the base with E-Z Runner and the unicorn and word with Multi-Matte Medium. It’s definitely a very girly card, perfect for the sweet 16’s recipient! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you for stopping by! Have a very nice Tuesday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 475

Mojo Monday 475

Is it really Monday already?! I was extra tired at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. Not sure why but I needed a nap! It was so windy and cold here yesterday too, like 50mph winds, crazy! It even snowed a little last night! 🙁 Taylor did come up to the store to keep me company and make her grandfather a birthday card. I tried to work on some things and did manage to get a few things done but not as much as I had wanted to. Dinner with my Parents was good as always and after I stole a donut from them and came home and had a little coffee and watched some TV. The power keeps going out here for a second every so often lately, it’s getting really annoying! I think that I need to get a battery backup for my computer, not good to have it keep shutting off! Today I will finish up what I wanted to get done yesterday. Renee will be back in the store today, she has her Home Decor class today. 😀

I always look forward to Monday’s because it’s time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

mojo475

I used quite a few different products on my card for today! The base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Classic Cherry with the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Background heat embossed in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. The main panel is a piece of Prima Sweet Peppermint No Peeking 12×12 Paper backed with a piece of Rose Chintz. I heat embossed the Hand Drawn Snowflakes again onto a piece of Yellow with Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder and flagged the right side. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto another piece of Rose Chintz backed with a piece of Herb Garden. For my snowflake I used the Tim Holtz Paper Snowflakes Thinlit to cut out a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card and adhered it to the card with  a 3D Foam Square. All that was left to do was to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins! It’s definitely an eclectic mix of goodies and not my usual style but I do like the way it turned out! 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 and enter yours in the gallery! Thanks you so very much for starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Holly Day Ornaments

Holly Day Ornaments

What a super busy day I had at the stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! The ladies were there for the crop and a bunch of them decided that they would make cards. I demoed the MISIT and helped them out with some Altenew and Concord & 9th Stamps. I also snipped dies apart and played with Evelyn’s new Gemini Die Cutting Machine. Renee’s daughter Krista stopped by to make some things for a Bridal Shower that she is a part of next week. I helped her with the cards and Renee helped her with the Bridal Bingo. After work I came home and met my Parents and we went to Applebee’s for dinner. When I got back to the house I watched a little TV and then called it night. Today is day 2 of the crop… more fun ahead! 😀

For today’s craftiness, I have a relatively simple card that I made using some Hero Arts sets! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the pine branches from the Hero Arts Happy Holly Days Photopolymer Stamp Set in Green Hills and Forever Green directly onto the card front. My ornaments are from the Hero Arts Ornaments Stamp & Die Combo, I stamped them in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink onto some Arches 140lb Watercolor Card. They are colored in with Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet Distress Inks and an Aquawash Waterbrush. After they dried I cut them out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. Before I adhered my Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Amethyst, Lemon and Sea Breeze Sequins I stamped my greeting in the lower left from the Hero Arts Holiday Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set in more Intense Black and the card is finished! I love the ornaments, especially “watercolored”! I hope that you like my card for today! Thanks for your visit! Have a simple Sunday! 🙂

Paper Players 315

Paper Players 315

What a fun day yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I mentioned that they are doing construction right?! Well yesterday it was our turn to have the facade of the building taken down. So much noise and mess! Renee was smart and took the day off! I did have one person come in the morning to make the house. Around 3:30 I lost internet because they cut the cable wire! I called the rest of the people that were scheduled to take the class and said we would have to reschedule and I closed up around 4:00. Don’t ask what the cable is just cut it! So annoying! I stopped home and then went over to Heather’s so we could run some errands and have dinner. Kim and Stephanie came by for Thirsty Thursday! We had a great time as always. Today I need to get a ton of projects finished and hopefully we will have internet!

Today I have my project for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

paper-players-315

My friend Andrea very cleverly said to me, well you were going to share the house on your blog so why not use it for the challenge?! She is so smart sometimes! Here is the 3D Haunted House that I made for the class! I used the Tim Holtz Village Dwelling and the Village Manor Add-On Dies. All of the main parts of the house are cut from Black 110lb Card Stock and the fence, chimneys, door and windows from Battleship Gray. I used Vellum in the windows and the roofs are cut from American Crafts Black Glitter Card Stock. The windows, doors and chimneys have a little Black Soot Distress Ink added. I used Scor-Tape and Multi-Matte Medium to glue everything together. For a little extra spook I added a sparkly bat and ghost. There is a flickering tea light inside too! I do love the way the house came out! It’s simple but fun! I hope that you like my project for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

Wow! It’s Friday! We had a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I worked on some projects and Renee rearranged things! She does that every once in a while. My Parent’s stopped in for a visit which is always fun! After work I stopped home and chanegd into jeans before heading over to Heather’s. She had some pizza and a glass of wine waiting for me, she’s the best! Stephanie came by and we left to go to the Softball game. We had a nice time even if they did loose. We laughed and I chased Stephanie around the field! Here is a picture of the three of us on the bleachers…

We look like we are having fun don’t we?! Today I have to get a little more organized at the store, I have started to create piles on my desk and that is never a good thing!

I have a bunch of new Hero Arts goodies from the last release that are just begging to be played with so I used one of them for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

freshly-made-sketches-255

My card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. For the background I heat embossed the script from the Hero Arts Vintage Post Stamp & Cut Combo Set in Hero Arts Brass Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb. It’s adhered to the card with Black Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My cardinal, poinsettia and pine cones, all from the same set, are all double stamped onto Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper in Hero Arts Intense Black using my Mini MISTI. The pine branch and holly are stamped in Hero Arts Pine Hybrid. I used Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Mowed Lawn and Gathered Twigs Distress and a Waterbrush to color them in. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with Black 3D Foam Squares and Dot Runner Adhesive. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in more Brass onto a piece of Chinese Red and adhered with more Black 3D Foam Squares. Yup, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold, Concord & 9th Birthday Bash Mix and Christmas Mix Sequins to the card to give it a little bling! I love that Vintage Post Set, so many nice images, great for collage cards! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for visiting me today! Have a fun Friday! 🙂

Crop days at the store are always fun! I got to do another MISTI Demo, this time with my friend Evelyn! We stamped out the Vintage Roses from Altenew in the lovely Cool Summer Nights Crisp Ink! I can’t wait to see the layout that she adds them to! I worked on my card and showed my friend Linda the finished product. She will be a little surprised to see that I changed it! After work I stopped home and saw Taylor, Daniel and Tristan for a little bit before I headed out to my party! When I walked in the house Daniel ran over to me and gave me a big hug and a kiss! There is no better greeting in the world! My brother and his wife had date night! Aww… so cute! The party that I went to last night was my friend Adam’s 40th. All of my peeps were there so we had a very nice time! Today is the second day of the crop! More shenanigans at the store! 😀

Like I had mentioned, I worked on my card while I was at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. For my background I heat embossed the Hero Arts Kelly’s Background Stars in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper. To color it I used Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Ink squished onto an acrylic block, watered down and applied to the background with a brush. To speed up the drying time I used my Heat Tool and then trimmed a little of of each side before adhering it to the card. Some Gold Mirror Card is cut out with the Impression Obsession City Landscape Layers Dies and that’s adhered with E-Z Runner. Under that is another strip of Black 110lb with a piece of Washi Tape over it. The fun buildings are from the Hero Arts Kelly’s It’s Christmastime Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the image in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of White Gold Curious Metallic and then used my Scissors to cut it out. I adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. For the greeting I die cut two piece of Black 110lb with the congrats die from the Hero Arts Congrats Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set. One of them is then heat embossed with more Copper Embossing Powder and then adhered to the other die cut, slightly offset, with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then I used Multi-Matte Medium to adhered it to the card. Yes, here come the sequins! LOL! A nice scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold, Gold and Onyx Sequins complete the card. I love that fun bold background stamp and the cool little images in that mini set! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thanks very much for visiting! Have a super Sunday! 🙂

Hello… it’s me! LOL! Love that song and Adele for that matter! How are you today?! We have made it to the mid-way point, yay! I had a nice busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday, so busy that when I looked at the clock it was 4:30! Where did that day go?! I did get a lot accomplished and that is always a good thing! Renee had her Home Decor class and they made the apple today, it came out really cute! I snuck out a little early again and after dinner I made my card for today and then ran to Target. You can never go in that store and just get what you went for! Do you have that issue too?!

So Wednesday and we are over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s challenge…

PCCCS209 DT Sketch 8-30-2016

I choose the first column down! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To make my  background I created a mask with the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders and then used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs for the sand and Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the water. I left the mask over the water and flicked some Heidi Swapp Gold and Bronzer Color Shine onto the beach and used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying. The panel is then adhered to the card base with E-Z Runner. Across the top is a piece of Vellum and I cut the bottom with the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders but reversed from the mask that I made. My greeting is the die cut you from the Hero Arts Thank You Pair Fancy Die, cut once from Ice Gold Curious Metallic and twice from Solar White 110lb. The rest of the greeting is from the My Monthly Hero Kit from May and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I adhered the three you die cuts together with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the Vellum. Some Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape is hidden behind the you and the Vellum panel is adhered to the card. The shells are cut from Ice Gold and White Gold Curious Metallic and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Rose Gold and Pewter Sequins along with a few Wood Veneer Stars on the sand and the card is done! I love that Color Shine and Sequins on the sand, I look at the card and I’m at the beach! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for your visit today! They are always appreciated! Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
