Freshly Made Sketches 288

I was under the impression that it was not going to be as warm yesterday as it was on Thursday but it was! I went and took Heather to drop her car off in the morning and then came back home and had some Breakfast. After that it was off to get a haircut and then I met a friend for coffee. Around lunchtime I called Stephanie to see what she was up to, she had errands to run so I took a ride with her. We got McDonald’s and stopped by Heather’s for a bit. I had dinner with my Parents and then Taylor came by for a while. Today I’m going to get crafty a fun way to spend part of Saturday! 😀

I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you…

Nice and simple! I started by using the Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp with some Altenew Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Caribbean Sky and Mango Smoothie Crisp Ink and my MISTI. I cut the panel to match the sketch and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My lightbulb is from the Concord & 9th Shine Brighter Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the base in Hero Arts Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of Galvanized Curious Metallic. The bulb is heat embossed in Hero Arts White onto some Heat Resistant Acetate along with the greeting in Hero Arts Gold. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and adhered it to the card with a 3D Foam Square. A few Little Things by Lucy Brushed Gold Sequins and Rhinestones complete the card. I love that lightbulb heat embossed on the acetate, so cool! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for visiting with me today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 497

Mojo Monday 497

Another quiet day here yesterday. I did have a nice visit with Mum for Mother’s Day. My Brother came by with the kiddies for a bit. Daniel came over to my house all by himself, he thinks he’s such a big boy now! I also managed to get my bedroom closet cleaned out and a few dresser drawers too! Not bad for a Sunday! Today, lots more organizing and purging!

And since it’s Monday we have a new Mojo Monday Sketch for you…

Remember the card from Saturday? When I use the Concord & 9th Dotty Turnabout Stamp I always do it on a 6×6 piece of Solar White 80lb. The panel on today’s card is another piece from the one I made for Saturday’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Solar White 80lb and masked off the a diagonal strip with some Post-it Tape. To add the color I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Altenew Peach Perfect Crisp Ink. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up is the aforementioned panel from Saturday’s card. For my greeting I used the Concord & 9th All About You Dies to cut out some Gold Mirror Card. I also cut out the negative from a piece of 48lb Vellum. To make it easier to hide the adhesive on the Vellum I stamped three more circles in Cotton Candy and cut them out with my Scissors. They are adhered to the Vellum and to the card with 3M Foam Tape. all that was left to do was to adhere the YOU with more 3M Foam Tape. I love that the YOU is cut out from the Vellum and there is that little border that lets you see the background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see yours in the gallery! Thank you so much for starting another week off here with me! Have an amazing Monday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 287

Today will be a good day to do some things indoors, it’s supposed to rain all day. I have plenty to keep me busy, some cleaning and some crafting should fill up my day nicely. Yesterday morning I went and picked up Heather after she dropped off her car to be inspected and we grabbed some breakfast and went back to her house. While she worked I got some caught up on some stuff too. I took her back to get her car and then came home and did some stuff around the house. After dinner we took a ride to BJ’s and Party City so that she could pick up some necessities. The rest of my evening was spent watching a little TV and finally catching up on blog comments! What’s on for you today?

I have another card to share with you using some more new Concord & 9th goodies. It’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

It’s a super simple card! I used the Dotty Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp and my MISTI to stamp a fun background. For the first three turns I used Altenew Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie and Peach Perfect Crisp Ink. I used my Heat Tool to make sure that the ink was dry, treated it with my Powder Tool and then used Versa-Mark and Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder for the fourth turn. A piece of it is trimmed and adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The celebrate is from the Concord & 9th All About You Dies and is cut from a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card Stock. I used Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere it to the card. That’s it! Like I said, simple but I love the awesome patterned paper that you can create with the Dotty Turnabout Stamp! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for coming by! Have a simple Saturday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 96 – CAS Wedding!

SIP Challenge 96 – CAS Wedding!

Hey there! It’s to be rainy and chilly again for the next few days, but will warm up at the weekend! Another fun Monday spent a the Store. Poor Renee, she gets to listen to me whine sometimes and I appreciate that. I did get a few kits made of the Wedding Card that I posted a few weeks ago. I would love to kit up more cards but it’s not easy unless they are limited in stamping! I had another quiet evening at home after a quick dinner with my folks. I haven’t been myself lately, lots going on. But this all will pass, hopefully soon. 😀

It’s time today for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

Ahh, clean and simple, loving those kind of cards lately! My card today is definitely not a difficult one to make! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped my images and greeting with my Mini MISTI. The flowers are from the Altenew Remember This Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the large flower in Lava Rock and then masked it and stamped the smaller flowers and leaves. After removing the mask I added two more layers to the large flower with Moon Rock and Evening Gray. My greeting is from the Altenew Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lava Rock. I was going to add a few sequins but actually like the card just the way it is! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! There are some excellent projects over on the BLOG from the rest of the Design Team so make sure you take a look! We would love to see your project in the gallery too! Thank you for taking some time to come by and see me today! Have a great Tuesday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 284

Happy Friday peeps! Thankfully it only rained in the morning and the sun came out for the rest of the afternoon! The first day of Card Class went well and I’m looking forward to day two! I was on my own for dinner again last night, the Parent’s were watching Daniel and Tristan. I can see where I fall on the importance list! LOL! My evening was spent watching TV again to distract my little brain! Good times! 😀

Today’s card is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I haven’t watercolored in a while and I have these new to me Pearl Watercolors from FineTec, I needed to give them a try! The flowers are from the Altenew Botanical Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set, I heat embossed them in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto some Arches 140lb Watercolor Card. They are then colored in with the FineTec Pearl Watercolors and my Aquawash Brush. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Next I used the Altenew Happy Die to cut out a piece of Kraft and two pieces of thin chipboard (left over packaging!), some Multi-Matte Medium adheres them to each other. While I waited for them to dry I created my card base with a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with another piece of Kraft and adhered a piece of Gold Glitter Card Stock down the center. The happy is then smooshed into my Versa-Mark Pad and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder, I did it twice to give it a really nice shine. To finish the card I adhered the flowers and happy to the card with 3M Foam Tape and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins. I really like the FineTec Pearl Watercolors, they have a nice sparkle to them, it looks so much better in person! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for spending a little of your Friday with me! Enjoy the rest of the day! 🙂

Bamboo Birthday

Bamboo Birthday

Hello all and a happy Saturday to you! It was a little chilly here yesterday and somewhat dreary. We had a busy day at the Store, got to meet some new customers and I got to help a very nice lady with some thank you cards. I had to stop at the Post Office on the way home to drop off an order and I had a little dinner with my Parents when I got home. The rest of the evening was spent just relaxing and watching some TV. Today there is a crop at the Store, I will get to see the ladies! 😀

I have a card that was inspired by a one that Yana made the other day to share with you. I started by stamping the flowers from the Altenew Bamboo Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Solar White 80lb and then colored them in with my Prismacolor Pencils. I don’t have the dies for them so I used my trusty Scissors to cut them out. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the greeting from the Altenew Painted Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of Kraft Card Stock and some of the berries from the Bamboo Rose set, colored them in with pencils and then tied a piece of May Arts Twine around the top. The panel is then adhered to the card base with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All that was left to do was to adhere the flowers with 3D Foam Squares. I have always loved the way Kraft looks on a card, I think that it makes the flowers really pop! I hope that you like today’s card! I thank you for your visit today and wish you a stupendous Saturday! 🙂

It was a beautiful day here yesterday, a little taste of Spring! The Store was pretty busy, I did get the Lawn Fawn order in and emailed everyone to let them know that their goodies had arrived. I got to see Sandy for a bit and then Sue stopped by and right after that Debbie! Today I have to get my butt in gear and make sure that I have all of the projects for upcoming classes ready! I’m even going to send out a newsletter!! Gotta get back into the swing of things! Last night my friend Jim came over. We ran a few errands and picked up dinner, we even put the top down in the car! A little time was also spent working on a special project! It’s going to be great when it’s finished! 😀

It’s Wednesday today so time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

I actually made the tag for this card a few weeks ago and then made it into a card. I dusted off some older Lawn Fawn sets too! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders to cut the top and bottom of a piece of Herb Garden Card Stock and adhered that across the center. My circle is a piece of Kraft that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. The tag is cut from a piece of Solar White 80lb with the Lawn Fawn Tag, You’re It Lawn Cuts, I tied a piece of Natural Twine through the hole and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All of the images except the worm and branch are from the Lawn Fawn Love you S’more Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Jet Black and colored in with Copics. The worm and branch are from the Lawn Fawn Bugs and Kisses Photopolymer Stamp Set, I used the Coordinating Dies to cut out all of the images and then adhered the to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I love those stamp sets and I’m so happy with the way the marshmallows tuned out! They look nice and toasty! I hope that you enjoyed 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 card and let’s see yours in the gallery!

Well, that was a very busy day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! The Lawn Fawn order came in and went right back out! I couldn’t have gotten it all done with the help of my friend Sue! We worked all day on making sure that everything was sorted, packed and mailed. Everyone that placed an order had their packages mailed out yesterday! I stopped at the Post Office and dropped them off and the lady couldn’t have been nicer! From there it was home to have a little dinner and then off to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday! We ended up running to Target and met up with Stephanie there. Back to the house for a lot of laughter! Taylor stopped by and George even hung out with us for bit! I do love my peeps, they are pretty awesome! Today I will input the extra Lawn Fawn and get it back up on the Store site! 😀

I have my card for they week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge to share with you today…

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Magnolias for Her Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black Crisp Ink. To color them in I used my Prismacolor Pencils, I’m getting better but am far from where I want to be with them! I did really enjoy the coloring and blending and that’s what it’s all about right?! After they were colored in I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my card I started off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The panel was actually left over from a card that I made a few weeks ago. I heat embossed the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder onto a piece Kraft. My greeting is from the Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of 48lb Vellum. I wrapped the Vellum around the back of the woodgrain panel and then adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The leaves and single flower are adhered with more E-Z Runner. I choose to forgo the sequins to keep the focus on that pretty flower! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by to see me today! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

I can definitely say that I’m enjoying the weather, it was in the 50’s yesterday! I’ll take that! I had a nice quiet day at the Store. Worked on projects, saw customers and spoke to friends. My Lawn Fawn order will be arriving today. It will all get checked in and packaged up to be sent out with the help of my friend Sue! I’m happy that she is coming, there are a lot of packages to get together! I spoke to my friend Jim on the way home from work and then had dinner with my Parents. I sat and watched this week’s episode of This is Us and then Andrew came by for a visit! His group Satellite Lane has an album coming out soon and he gave me a little preview! It’s great and I’ll be sure and let you all know when it’s available! After he left I watched a movie and then called it a very late evening. Can’t wait to get to the store today and get all of those goodies sent out! 🙂

I have a fun set of cards to share with you for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I used the Altenew Painted Flowers and Halftone Hello Photopolymer Stamp Sets to make four one layer cards! The hello on all of them is stamped in Velvet and Jet Black Crisp Ink using my Mini MISTI. I then stamped the flowers randomly on each of the cards using Jet Black, Frayed Leaf, Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Inks. After the flowers were stamped I added the second parts of the sentiments. They needed a little something more and I was going to use sequins but I really wanted to keep them nice and flat, easy for mailing, so I added some dots with my Uniball Gold Signo Gel Pen. It gave them that something more without adding any bulk to them! I really am happy with the way they came out and can’t wait to give them to someone as a gift! I hope that you enjoyed my cards for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you very much for stopping by! Have a crafty Thursday! 🙂

Hello my friends! We had another pretty nice day and next week we are to get up into the 60’s again! Can’t wait for that! It was another fun day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store, Renee and I got some of our many projects worked on and Isa came by to scrapbook and my Parent’s stopped by too! After work I had a quick dinner and then went over to Heather’s. She had made Arepas for dinner last night and saved me one! It was delicious. We saw George for a bit and then headed over to pick up Stephanie so we could run to the Walt Whitman Mall. Heather had to exchange her Michael Kors bag and Stephanie wanted a new one! I got Starbucks so I was happy! We also did an early Thirsty Thursday since I have Card Class tonight. Always a good time with my ladies! 😀

Some of my time at the Store was spent making my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I love those colors! I started off by heat embossing the images from the Altenew Lotus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of Ballerina Pink and Slate. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside while I worked on my base. To create it I used on of the Hero Arts Acetate Note Cards and added some Solar White 80lb to the front, inside front and back. So there would be somewhere to write the greeting I adhered a folded piece to the inside back. My flowers and leaves are then adhered to the card front with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. The greeting is from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Copper onto another piece of Ballerina Pink and cut out with my Scissors. Some more 3D Foam Squares adhere it to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is finished! It was actually a pretty simple card to make, I love the Acetate Note Card and the simple look of the heat embossed images! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have an excellent Thursday! 🙂
