Freshly Made Sketches 241

What day is today?! LOL! It was another late night at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store with the second night of the June Lawn Fawn Card Class! Night two was just as much fun! We all had a great time and my friend Maggie came all the way out from Manhattan to take the class! I picked her up at the train station and then dropped her off before heading home for the evening. I do so love to get see all of the talented card makers and newbies making the cards and letting me know which ones are their favorites! I think that it was a tie between the shaker and the slider this month! We also tried a new format for getting the cards done, I think it worked better than previous months but I’ll have to see what the feedback is from the classes. After all, it’s all about making it a great experience for the people that take the class! Today we have Jen Starr coming to teach a few classes for Scrap-A-Latte, I’m looking forward to seeing her! She’s a great teacher and a really funny person!

The card that I have for you today is my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 241

I stamped and die cit my images at the store and then put the card together when I got home last night! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Soft Sky with the We R Memory Keepers Waves Next Level 3D Embossing Folder and adhered that to the card with E-Z Runner. Across the bottom is a piece of Pacific Point with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Color Layering Seahorse Photopolymer Stamp Set heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. That too is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. The images are from the same stamp set, I stamped the seahorse in Soft Pool, Pool and Deep Ocean, the large shell in Soft Brown and Cup O Joe and the small one in Wet Cement and Butter Bar. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. It needed just a little sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sand, Aquamarine and Sparkling Clear Sequins. I love the Hero Arts Color Layering sets and the new 4 packs of ink that coordinate perfectly with them are great too! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by today! I wish you all the best Saturday ever! 🙂

I hope that you all had a nice Saturday! Of course being at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store how could I not?! Renee has a two day crop this weekend and I love to sit there and chat with the ladies! My friend Ebony stopped by to get some lawn Fawn goodies and I forgot to put something in her bag so when she came back I gave her a free pack of sequins. Love my customers! I left the store around 4:00, another perk of being the boss! LOL! I had to go to George’s and get Heather’s car, which I’m happy to report has a nice new windshield, and go and pick them up from the airport. It started to rain while I was there and I parked miles away. My trusty Dark Sky App told me that the rain would stop in five minutes and sure enough it did! I think George was a little amazed! We had a nice uneventful ride back to George’s and they got me a Starbucks cup from New Orleans as a thank you! YAY! I had a little dinner at my Parent’s and my Dad made spinach dip, so much for the diet! When I got home I decided that I would unplug for a few and just watch a movie. I never do that, turned the iPhone on silent and just enjoyed Olympus Has Fallen. Now there is a one action packed blow everything up movie! Today I have a lot of administrative things to accomplish and a few projects that I want to get finished at the store! What’s on for you today?

My card that I have to share with you today is one that I made using the June My Monthly Hero Kit. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Real Red and used the We R Memory Keepers Dotted Next Level 3D Embossing Folder to add some hearts to the strip and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. My tag is cut from a piece of Kraft using the tag die that comes with the kit. I also used the window die to cut out the front of the tag. A few more of the dies included in the kit are cut from some Daffodil Delight, Shadow Curious Metallic and Pluto Stardream Curious Metallic. To make my shaker pocket I used the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool and one of their 12×12 Page protectors. I have to add that I also have the Silicone Mat and it makes a big difference when using the Fuse Tool! Before I sealed the pocket I added the metallic die cuts and some Silver Sequins. It’s then adhered to the inside of the tag with Scor-Tape. On a piece of Solar White 80lb I stamped the Sending Love and some hearts in Red Royal Ink with the included Photopolymer Stamp Set and adhered that to the inside back of the tag. The two Daffodil Delight die cuts are adhered to the outside and some Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord is tied thorough the hole. Just to make it a little more fun I used Magnet Tape to secure the tag to the card, that way if someone wants to take the tag off and hang it they can! I love the fun goodies included in this month’s My Monthly Hero Kit especially that cool Tag Die! I hope that you like my cool little shaker card! Thank you oh so much for visiting with me today! Have an awesome Sunday! 🙂

What started out as a nice sunny morning turned into November! LOL! Around 1:00 it started to pour and got really windy! I choose to wear shorts and flip flips today, bad choice! I did manage to get a few projects done at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! It was a good day to be crafty at work! When I got home I had some dinner at my parent’s, my mum had gone over to see our neighbor whose husband had just passed away. They have been friends for a while and she is a very nice lady. My Dad and I chatted for a bit and then I came home and Taylor was here napping on the couch with binge watching Secrets of Magic on Netflix through her eyelids! Around 9:00 I ran up to BJ’s to get some stuff for work and bumped into Sue and her husband Joe. We talked for a while waiting on line. I miss seeing Sue! When I got back home I finished up my card and then typed my post before calling it a day. I have my Stamping 101 Class tonight, that should be fun!

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 my good friend Andrea’s blog, welcome! This month we have a Summer Lovin’ theme! Ahh, Summer love, I have had one of those, I miss it!

First up I have a card. The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of My Colors Slate. I adhered a strip of My Colors Mini Dot Prairie Hearts Paper down the left side. Some Gold Mirror Card is cut out with the Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents Dies using my Artisan X-Plorer, I also embossed the die cut and then adhered it to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. My flowers and leaves are form the Altenew Vintage Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. They are stamped in Arctic, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue and Sapphire Crisp Ink for the flowers and Morning Frost, Evening Gray and Moon Rock Crisp Ink for the leaves using my Mini MISTI. I cut them out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered them to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder on a piece of 46lb Vellum. I trimmed it out with my Scissors and adhered it to the flower with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. I was going to add some sequins but I thought that it looked nice just the way it was!

The other project I have for you is a box that I made using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. I used the same Card Stock, Dies and Stamps to create it. I love the coordination with the card using the same stamps and shapes! It’s also a lot of fun to dig through Renee’s stash and use things that I normally wouldn’t get to use!

Fab Friday 87

Fab Friday 87

Oh yes my friends it’s Friday! We had another spectacular day here on Long Island yesterday and I had a bunch of errands to run so the top was down in my car all day! I enjoyed every minute of it! I FaceTimed with Andrea in the morning and then went and met Bill for lunch. After that I stopped back at my parents and saw Daniel for bit before grabbing a few things from my house and heading over to Sue’s. I have to say that she is just an amazing friend and I’m so happy to have her in my life. She helps me out with so much stuff and I’m grateful for all that she does for me! After my little visit it was back home, Sandy stopped by for a bit and then I headed back over to my Parent’s for dinner. Heather came by around 6:30 and picked me up so that we could run to BJ’s and then we stopped back at my house so that I could follow her, she had drop off her car for an oil change. From there it was over to her house for Thirsty Thursday! Taylor and Kiera stopped by for a bit and Stephanie was there! Phew, another busy but great day! Today… I’m not sure what I have to do but I’m sure that it’s a lot! LOL!

It’s a doubly good Friday because it’s time for another Fab Friday Challenge! This time around we have a sketch…

Fab Fri 87 5-13-2016

We all know that I love me some woodgrain and this card is just filled with it! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the birch trees in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of Solar White 80lb using the Concord & 9th Tree Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set and adhered it to my card base for the background. My flagged strip is a piece of Black 110lb. On top of that is a piece of Bronze Card Stock that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folder. Next, I stamped the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto a piece of Sahara Sand. It’s cut out with my Scissors and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Finally I stamped my heart and greeting, also from the Tree Hugs Set, in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut that out with my Scissors too. Some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner also adhere that to the card. I decided to keep it nice and clean no sequins, just incase I needed a “man” card! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Check out the rest of the Team’s cards on the BLOG and enter your one in the gallery! Thank you for having some Friday fun with me! Have a fantastic day! 🙂

What started out to be a rainy day turned into a nice sunny one! YAY! When I took the train into Manhattan it was pouring, by the time I got up to 86th Street it had stopped. I went to see my friends Jon and Mary, they are going to Paris and Europe for a few weeks! So jealous! From there I headed down to The Ink Pad to surprise Anna with a visit! Alway nice to see her! My friend Kim came and met me at the store and we went and had Chipotle for lunch. From there we walked up 6th Avenue and stopped in some stores along the way. We ended up at Gregory’s Coffee and both had cappuccinos. They had some latte art on them…

Gregory's Coffee Latte Art

Now there is something that you don’t get at Starbucks and the coffee was delicious! We said our goodbyes and I ran to get the 4:12 train, and made it! So many people on there with suitcases heading for Jamaica so they could change for the Air-Train to JFK. They never are good with their bags and you always end up getting whacked with one or two! Taylor got me from the station and dropped me off at home. I had a quick dinner with my parents and then watched Jurassic World for like the 10th time! Love that movie! Today I’ll be at Scrap-A-Latte minding the store for Renee, stop by and say hi if you are in the area!

It’s Monday and you know what that means, time for another fun Mojo Monday sketch…

I received my Hero Arts May Kit the other day and wanted to use the neat Gift Card Die that came with it! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Black 110lb with the We R Memory Keepers Dotted Next Level 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. My two circles on the top right and bottom left are Silver Foil Sheet and are punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I adhered them to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is a piece of Pear Pizzaz and across that peeking out just barely is a piece of Pool Party. I cut the out the gift card holder with the Die from the kit from a piece of Bermuda Bay. On a piece of Vellum I heat embossed the Thank You, also from the kit, in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder. I wrapped it around the gift card holder and adhere it to the card. A few Aqua and Sliver Sequins along with some Pretty Pink Posh Lime Sorbet, Black and Aquamarine Sequins are adhered to the card leaving the piece under the gift card empty so you can pull out the envelope. I think that makes a pretty neat way to give a gift card to someone, don’t you?! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of my talented Teammates have come up with to inspire you and add your creation to the gallery! Thank you so much for starting another week off with me!

SIP Challenge 46 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

SIP Challenge 46 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

I hope that your Monday was a good one! It was supposed to rain here all day but instead we got a little reprieve and it was overcast with peeks of sun every now and then. No complaints about that! I had a nice productive day getting some crafting done in the morning via FaceTime with Andrea. I went over to my parent’s for lunch, I had a bagel with Liverwurst! I love Liverwurst, must be the German in me! LOL! some phone calls were up next, eBay about some charges to my account that shouldn’t have been there, I did call previous and they assured me that it would be taken care of, of course it wasn’t! I have also been having issues with my blog since the last WordPress update so I called GoDaddy, the guy tried to be helpful but told me I would have to pay $30 for them to change something that might fix the issue. Umm… I didn’t do anything to make it not work so I don’t think that I will be paying to get it fixed thanks! By some little miracle it seems to be working all on it’s own again (or maybe Trent from GoDaddy fixed it?!)! After that I stopped by Heather’s to drop off the Nespresso that she bought from me. Speaking of Heather it’s her Birthday today!! Happy Birthday Heather!! From there I stopped by Anthony’s to see him and Bill and then I came home and had dinner. Taylor and Kiera stopped by to binge watch some YouTube, some guy that makes things with a Lathe! Sigh! Before calling it a night I ran to Target to get a few things. Today I have lots to do once again, but it’s all good stuff!

It’s Tuesday and we are ready for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week I came up with a Tic-Tac-Toe board (with a little help from Andrea)…

SIP Tic Tac Toe 46 800

I did the left column down! My card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of Gold Mirror Card Stock down the left side with Scor-Tape. The background is another piece of Ivory 110lb that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Woven Next Lever 3D Embossing Folder. I did it with all tabs open on the Multi-Purpose Platform and still thought the Big Shot would explode! Thankfully it didn’t! The panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My orchid is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Orchid in a Pot Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped it in Unicorn, Bubblegum, Raspberry and Forever Green onto some Blushing Bride using my Mini MISTI. It’s cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Ribbon Messages Stamp and Cut, I stamped it in Raspberry and cut it out with the smaller of the two banners. It too is adhered to the card with Foam Tape. Of course I had to add some Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink and Gold Sequins around the flower! It’s a sympathy card but not a sad one! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has done to inspire you! You can see what our Guest Designer for May, Jan Tinklenberg has to share with you too! Don’t forget to show us your card by posting it in the gallery, we love to see what you come up with!

Mojo Monday 438

What a nice weekend, a little chilly but very nice! I was home most of the day yesterday except for running a few errands with Heather. We went to IKEA so that she could get a new desk chair and lamp. IKEA on a Sunday is not for the faint of heart! LOL! So crowded! But we did get some of their frozen yogurt which is delicious as is their coffee. I put the chair together when we got back to Heather’s and then we stopped at the Dollar Tree before she dropped me off back at my house. I crafted for a bit and finished up my laundry, had some dinner and then watched some TV. Today I’m going to do a bit more crafting as I will be in Manhattan on Tuesday and Wednesday. Need to get some more projects finished!

As always we are starting the week off with a new Mojo Monday sketch…

Mojo438

I dug into my Simon Says Stamp Kit again to make today’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Soft Sky with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Dotted 3D Embossing Folder and adhered a piece of Pink Pirouette 1 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the back slightly to the right of center. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam, E-Z Runner and Multi-Purpose Glue. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies to cut out a piece of the Echo Park Spring Collection 6×6 Paper and adhered that to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner, tucking it under the ribbon. My greeting and peeps are from the Simon Says Stamp My Kind of Peep Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. I ran it through twice to get it to the size that I needed. The HUGS is colored in with my Copics and the panel is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. My peeps are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Lake Shores, Rosie Cheeks, Jellybean and Goldenlocks Ink, their eyes are added with a Black Gel Pen. I used the Coordinating My Kind of Peep Dies to cut them out and adhered three of them to the greeting panel with Foam Tape. The fourth bunny is adhered to a piece of Pink Pirouette that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes. Some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is added to the peeps and a few Pretty Pink Posh Summer Mix, Ballerina Pink, Aquamarine, Lime Sorbet and Lemon Drop Sequins are scattered about for a little sparkle! I love that stamp set and the 3D Embossing Folder is still too cool! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and take a look at the rest of the Team’s inspiration cards and enter your card in the gallery! I appreciate you starting your week off with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Yay for the weekend! Boo for the freezing cold! We are supposed to get down to -20 with the wind chill later on today, that is just silly! I will be crafty inside the house for the day thanks! I did have a nice full day yesterday! I stopped by Scrap-A-Latte in the morning to see Renee and get the supplies for this month’s Card Class. From there I headed out to MacArthur to pick up Sandy. We stopped at Panera and had lunch before I dropped her off at the rental car place, her car is being fixed at the moment. I came back home and checked on Winston, he’s not feeling well, he didn’t even eat breakfast. Poor guy. Taylor and Keira stopped by and gave him some love while I worked on some crafty things. I went out to dinner with Anthony and Bill so I took Winston over to my Parent’s so he wouldn’t be alone. We went to Friday’s for an early Valentine’s dinner! LOL! It was fun as always. Before they dropped me off we stopped at Target and Starbucks. The rest of the night I sat with Winnie, I hope he feels better today.

The card that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 223

Very interesting sketch! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the We R Memory Keepers Dotted Next Level 3D Embossing Folder on a piece of Crumb Cake for the background and it’s adhered to the card with SNAIL. Some Black 110lb is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Devonshire Butterfly Craft Die. I smooshed it into my Versa-Mark Pad and covered it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder before heating it with my Heat Tool. I repeated the process twice to give it a little more shine. Two strips of paper from the American Crafts DIY Shop 6×6 Paper Pad are adhered to the card with SNAIL and the butterfly is adhered with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp I See You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Little pieces of Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape hold that in place. I think that Dotted 3D Folder is really cool and the butterfly coated in the clear embossing powder is pretty neat too! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for starting your weekend off with me! Have a stupendous Saturday! 🙂

And we’re off to the start of another week and a new month! I had a very productive day yesterday! I helped my dad do the brakes on his truck in the morning and also got through my mountain of laundry. I also straightened up around the house and got a few crafty things done. Today I have some more organizing to do and I also have to make a plan as to what I’m going to with life in general! Pretty broad description but it needs to be done. I have a few airport runs to make this week dropping people off as they head off on vacation. I’m thinking that one day they will be nice enough to have me tag along! LOL!

The start of the week means another fun sketch from Mojo Monday

Mojo433

This card all began with the thought that I wanted to use a specific patterned paper! The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Woven 3D Embossing Folder on a piece of Blushing Bride for the background. Next up is a piece of paper from the Crate Paper Kiss, Kiss 6×6 Paper Pad that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Craft Dies and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. Across the lower half of the card is a piece of Basic Gray adhered with more SNAIL. My square is a piece of Black 110lb that is also cut out with the Stitched Squares and is adhered with more Fun Foam and SNAIL. The flowers are from the Simon Says Stamp with Altenew Layered Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my MISTI to stamp them in Simon Says Stamp Rosy Cheeks, Teeny Bikini and Slate Ink with the leaves stamped in Khaki and Slate. They are cut out with my Paper Snips. I placed them where I wanted and used a piece of Glad Press ‘n Seal to pick them up. Some SNAIL and Foam Tape is added to the back and then they are all adhered in place and the Press ‘n Seal is removed. Makes it a lot easier than trying to remember exactly where you had them! Thanks Jennifer McGuire for the tip! My greeting is cut from more Black 110lb using the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Craft Die. Some Multi-Matte Medium adheres it in place! I love the texture that the Woven 3D Embossing Folder gives the card and the layered flowers go so well with the patterned paper! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and don’t forget to share your creation with us!

SIP Challenge 27 – Thanks!

Well it was warm here again yesterday but really foggy in the morning and then rained for most of the rest of the day. I was sure that Brian & Kim’s plane would be delayed but they actually landed 1/2 hour early! After I dropped them off I came home and FaceTimed with Andrea for a bit while I worked on some crafty projects. Later on in the afternoon I got a message from Heather that her Grandfather had passed away and she was there with him. It’s never easy to loose a family member but he lived a nice long 93 years and she has all of the great memories that she shared with him to remember him. Anthony and Bill came by to pick me up around 5:15 and we ran over to Walt Whitman Mall so that Anthony could get his mum’s Christmas Present. We also stopped at Lush and Bill and I got Holiday Spice Flat Whites from Starbuck, my new favorite drink! When I got back home I went over to Heather’s and Stephanie and Brian stopped by too. Nothing like spending a little time with your friends to make the sadness a little easier. This morning I’m off to Scrap-A-Latte for the day to watch the store for Renee. Not a bad way to spend a Tuesday!

Since it’s Tuesday it’s time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This time the challenge will run for two weeks ending on December 27th. We thought that some Thank You cards would be needed so that’s what the theme is…

SIP Challenge 27 - Thanks 800

I saw a card that Kristina Werner made the other day as part of her Holiday Card Series for 2015 and I had to give it a try! I took a piece of Vellum and heat embossed the Thank You from the Concord & 9th Painted Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The pocket is created with my Fuse Tool and a We R Memory Keepers 12×12 Page Protector. Before sealing the top I added some Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Sequin Mix to the pocket. On the back is a piece of Elegant Eggplant and Neenah Solar White 80lb Card Stock that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Craft Dies and adhered to each other and then to the pocket. I added the white so that you would have a place to write a message. I love this card! It’s like the ultimate shaker card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and don’t forget to play along with us by entering your card in the gallery! Thank you for spending some time with me today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
