Freshly Made Sketches 267

I had a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. Renee got to go into Manhattan, she had lunch at Eataly and went to The Shops at Bryant Park and then saw the tree! If she has pictures I’ll share some of them with you! Karen stopped by the store in the morning and I got to speak with my lovely friend Grace! After a little trip to the Post Office I worked on a few projects and made a card that I didn’t like at all! Wonder if you will ever see that one?! I also cut for Card Class, I was on top of things! LOL! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then ran to Target to pick up a few necessities including some of that Reindeer Confetti that I used on yesterday’s card! There is a link at the bottom to go to the Store and pick one up if you want! See that… always thinking of you guys! All that was left to do was to make my card for today! 😀

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

I needed to use that fun My Monthly Hero Kit again so I heat embossed the sparklers in WOW! Metallic Gold, Silver and Copper Sparkle Embossing Glitter onto Black Card Stock and then cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. For my tag I used the Hero Arts Infinity Tags Dies and then cut off a little from the bottom to give me a shorter tag. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in more Metallic Silver Embossing Glitter. The secondary greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I cut the reinforcement from a piece of Super Gold Curious Metallic, adhered it to the tag and then tied a piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Twine thought the hole. All that was left to do was to adhere it to a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Black Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. How perfect is that Sparkle Embossing Glitter for those sparklers?! It’s also a pretty simple card with a lot of impact! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! I always appreciate your visit and wish you all a lovely Thursday! 🙂

Fab Friday 101

So, did any of you venture out for some Black Friday deals?! I got a few things from Amazon but other than that I was good! I had a super relaxing day yesterday! I didn’t get out of bed until 10:00AM! I never do that! And I watched two movies! I’m still stuffed from yesterday! Taylor and I had pizza and port wine cheddar and crackers! LOL! I never use my stove because it’s gas and scares me! But we made it! LOL! Today I have my Black Friday sales at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! Hoping to be really busy! 😀

If you did got out and shop or eat too much sit back and relax and enjoy the new Fab Friday sketch…

One of the new things that I got on Wednesday was an awesome paper pad and I used it on today’s card! The base is Ivory 100lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Kraft. I used three pieces of paper from the TrimCraft Wild at Heart 6×6 Paper Pad. One for the top part of the background, one for the strip and another for the circle which is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. I also used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Frames Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Pluto Stardream Metallic for a frame around the circle. That circle is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My deer head is cut from a piece of Ionized Metallic and two pieces of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I adhered them to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. To the back of it I adhered some branches that I cut out from more Kraft with the Lea-bilities Holly Leaves & Pine Branches Dies. To hold all of that to the circle I used a 3D Foam Square. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto more Kraft and adhered with more 3D Foam Squares. So what do you think, can it get more masculine than that?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Go on over and see the rest of the Team’s cards on the BLOG and let’s see your card in the gallery! Thank you for coming but today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Beautiful Peach Birthday

Beautiful Peach Birthday

I got my haircut yesterday morning before heading over to the store. I always feel better after a haircut. Maybe it’s because Jessica makes my hair look good and I can never get it to look like she does! When I got to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store I started to enter some of the new things that I had gotten in and Shopify stopped working! It was a result of the DD0S attacks that were happening. So much fun! It was out for most of the day. Hopefully it will be back up today. Last night’s Card Class was great! I got to see my friends Marissa and Danielle! Daniel and I were at the store late catching up. I hate that I only get to see her once a month. We are going to make a better effort to see each other more often. Today I have three more peeps for Card Class and then some projects to get finished! Should be another fun day!

I had some left over pieces from a card that I made the other day and decided that I would use them to make another card and that’s what I have for you today! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Bo Bunny Soiree 12×12 Paper. I stamped my greeting from the Altenew Painted Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Moon Rock Crisp Ink and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My flower and leaves are from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flower in Peach Perfect Crisp Ink for the first three layers and then heat embossed the outside layer and leaves in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. They are adhered to the card with Dot Runner Adhesive and 3D Foam Squares. Across the bottom is a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Tape and around the flower is a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Gold Sequins. The Beautiful Day Set is definitely my all time favorite floral set! I use it enough… right?! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you for coming by! Have a fun Saturday! 🙂

OSAT September Blog Hop – Birthday Bash

OSAT September Blog Hop – Birthday Bash

OSAT Blog Hop Banner

What a super busy day I had yesterday! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was packed! That’s how I would like it every day! I got my Notions Order and the Hero Arts Order finally arrived! Woo hoo! I was selling it faster than I could enter it! I met some new people, Michelle and Deborah, super nice and so much fun! Creative people are the best! I got nothing prepared for my class so I did that after I had a quick dinner, when I got home. I also finished up my projects for today’s blog hop and ran a few errands! Oh how I love to get as much as humanly possible accomplished in one day! Today I have the Magic of Vellum Class that I will be finishing up getting ready for when I get to the store this morning! I also might get to take a trip into Manhattan over the weekend! Now that would 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 talented friend Tina’s blog, welcome! This month we have a a Birthday Bash theme! Who doesn’t love to make some birthday cards?! I have a card and a gift box that I made with some Altenew goodness to share with you!

First up is the card and the base for that is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I die cut a piece of my favorite Gold Mirror Card with the Spellbinders Damask Motifs Die and adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. My flowers and leaves are from the Altenew Peony Bouquet Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flowers in Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet and the leaves in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the card with Dot Runner Adhesive and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Altenew Beautiful Lady Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Solar White 80lb that is backed with some more Gold Mirror Card. I flagged the left side and adhered it to the card with more 3D Foam Squares. A little scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Amethyst and Lime Sorbet Sequins finishes off the card! I don’t know why but I’m completely addicted to purples lately and I think that the flowers from the Peony Bouquet Set look stunning in them!

OSAT September Blog Hop Card-WM

Next up is my Pillow Box/Gift Card Holder. I cut out some Neenah Solar White 80lb with the Lawn Fawn Pillow Box Lawn Cuts and adhered the box together with Scor-Tape. Another die from the Spellbinders Damask Motifs set is cut out from some more Gold Mirror Card and adhered to the box with some more Scor-Tape. I added another one of the flowers and some leaves that I stamped along with the ones for the card on top of the die cut and added a piece of Glitter Light Purple Washi Tape across the bottom of the flowers to ground them a bit. Some more of the same Pretty Pink Posh Sequins as I used on the card are added and the box is done! What a fun way to give someone special a card with a matching gift card holder! Beats just sticking it in the card!

Mojo Monday 463

Mojo Monday 463

And it’s time to start another week! I really enjoyed my weekend! We had a nice day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. The Novak sisters came up to work on some projects and I introduced them to the MISTI! We have another Altenew stamping master! Renee worked on her next piece of the Home Decor project and I got caught up on some administrative things. I snuck out a little early and booked my Parent’s trip to Florida. They are going to meet my Aunt, Uncle and cousins from England in Florida. They are leaving on my birthday! Pretty messed up right?! LOL! I also made the mistake of watching the MTV VMA’s, what a horrible production! The performances were ok but the hosts and the fillers were appalling! Maybe I’m just getting old?! Anyway, today I have to start working on my cards for the September Card Class, that will be fun!

Monday, Mojo Monday! YAY! Here is this week’s sketch…

Mojo463

Oh, Tall & Skinny, love them! I started working on my card at the store and assembled it when I got home. My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock cut to 3 1/2″ wide. The background is a piece of Solar White 80lb and that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I added a strip of Bo Bunny Believe 12×12 Paper, with the end flagged, down the right side of the card. Across the card is a piece of Amethyst Stardream Metallic and going across that is a piece of Gold Mirror Card. I stamped my image and greeting from the Altenew Tulip Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Deep Iris for the tulip and Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades for the stem, the greeting is also stamped in Deep Iris. The piece is then backed with a piece of Cyber Grape and Fun Foam and adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. I adhered a few Pretty Pink Posh Pansy Purple, Gold and Lime Sorbet Sequins with Multi-Matte Medium around the tulip and the card is done! I love that beautiful layered tulip and the font in the greeting is perfect for the set! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Be sure and check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG and let’s see yours in the gallery! Thank you very much for starting you week off visiting me! Have a simple Monday! 🙂

I need a nap! LOL! Thank god that Sue came by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store to help me yesterday! I would have never gotten all of that Lawn Fawn and Pretty Pink Posh checked in and entered! The Partial Die Cutting Class was so much fun! I love showing people new things to add to their crafting arsenal! My buddy Melissa stayed behind after the night class to help me straighten up. We left around 8:30. When I got home I had a bunch more stuff to do and there is still more to be done today! But tonight is Thirsty Thursday and I get to see my peeps! Oh, and have a nice glass of whine! YAY! Let’s see, I have my store, my peeps and all of you! I’m one lucky guy wouldn’t you say?! 😀

My little bit of creativity that I have to share with you today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge from my friend Sandy…

Paper Players #309

She just happened to stop by the store while I watercoloring my ice pops the other day so she got a sneak peek at the card! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock with the front covered in a piece of Cyber Grape. I stamped the stripes onto a piece of Ballerina Pink with the Concord & 9th Stripe Builder Photopolymer Stamp in some Cotton Candy Crisp Ink. Before I adhered it to the card I cut out the word sweet with the Concord & 9th Sweet & Cool Dies. My ice pops are from the Concord & 9th Sweet & Cool Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed them in Hero Arts Brass Embossing Powder onto a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper and colored them with my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. They are cut out using one of the other dies from the Sweet & Cool Die Set and adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I stamped the rest of the greeting in Deep Iris Crisp Ink and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Gold Sequins around the pops to finish the card! Love that Sweet & Cool Stamp & Die set! It’s makes for a nice fun birthday card don’t you think?! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks for sharing in my day! Have a absolutely amazing Thursday! 🙂

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! 🙂

Fab Friday 94

H A P P Y  F R I D A Y!! It’s a very happy one for me! I’m taking tomorrow off! YAY! We had fun at the first two Card Classes at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! I love when we use a set like the Concord & 9th Brushed Blossom Set! It a nice loose flower that really can’t be stamped wrong! These types of stamps bring out a little more creativity in people, they tend to stamp a little more randomly and I love that! I had a nice late night ride home in the car with the top down. It was still 80 degrees when I left the store at 9:30. I came home and got my self situated and watched little TV before calling it a night. Today we have a morning card class and then I think I’m going to sneak out early! Wee!

It’s a Fab Friday week and I have fun card for you using the colors for this one…

I don’t actually have the new In-Colors but I do have my fabulous Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors so I came close! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Shadow Curios Metallic. I then heat embossed the images from the Altenew Tulip Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper. They are colored in with my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors and I set them aside to dry while I heat embossed the sentiment from the same set in more Platinum onto a piece of 46lb Vellum. I adhered that Vellum strip to the back of the watercolor panel and then added a few teeny drops of Multi-Matte Medium behind the words before adhering the watercolor piece to the card with Tombo Extreme Adhesive. I felt that it didn’t need anything else so I held back from adding some sequins! I love the flowers with the soft blue background, those watercolors really are amazing! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Take a peek at the rest of the Team’s cards by paying a visit to the BLOG and enter your card into the gallery! Thank you for spending a little Friday time with me! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Hmm… sometimes the hardest sentence to write is the first one. There got that out of the way! How is everyone? I’m well, I got a lot accomplished at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday with a little help from my friend Sue! She came by to keep me company and help me cut for class. I had gotten most of it done in the morning, my new no procrastination rule! The most tedious stuff, the die cutting, is what she helped with! So everything is bagged up and ready for today and tomorrow! I got my Lawn Fawn invoice today so that has shipped and will be here in time for the release next week! Hopefully my Hero order will ship soon too! Can’t wait to play with some of their new Holiday goodies! After I ate dinner last night I came home and finished up my card for today and cleaned a little, put laundry away and watched a little YouTube. Not too shabby for a Wednesday!

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

Paper Players #308

Now those are some fun bright colors! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the triangles using the Altenew Sohcahtoa Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark onto a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper and heat embossed them with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. To color them in I used my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors. After they dried I cut them out with my Scissors, nice and easy fussy cutting, and adhered them to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Altenew Super Script Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Gold onto a piece of Black 110lb. I cut out the friend with the Coordinating Dies and the happy birthday with my Paper Trimmer. They too are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins finishes the card. I love the bright but subtle watercolored triangles with the nice bold greeting! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for your visit today! Have a tantalizing Thursday! 🙂

C9 Birthday Bash RECTANGLE

Why are Monday’s always the toughest day to get through?! It was another perfect day here weather wise, still no AC in the car so I hope that the weather holds up! I got in the new release from Concord & 9th at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and had to make something with it right away! Love all of the new goodies in this one and it’s their 1st Birthday too! Taylor came by the store for a little visit and she and I walked over to Kmart. I got chocolate, because I needed that! LOL! After work I had dinner and then played around with the August My Monthly Hero Kit! Love this kit and I think that there are still some available! I’ll have some projects using it later in the week! Today I have to make sure and get a little ahead with my crafting, I have to go and pick up Mr. Ken Oliver from the airport on Wednesday! Looking forward to seeing him again! He is teaching classes for Renee at the store Wednesday evening and Thursday! Fun, fun, fun!

So if it’s Tuesday that means that it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we have some lovely colors from Andrea…

SIP Challenge 60 - Colors from Andrea

I have been having so much fun watercoloring lately and this new set from Concord & 9th just begs to be watercolored! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Cosmic Grape for the background. I took a piece of Arches 140lb Watercolor Paper and did a wash of purples and grey across it, dried it with my Heat Tool and adhered it to the card with Tombo Extreme. My cake and banner are from the Concord & 9th Happy Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed them in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto more Arches Watercolor Paper and then used my Sakura Koi Pocket Field Sketch Box Watercolors to color them in. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I positioned them on the card and then stamped the sticks for the banner in Onyx Black and adhered the cake and banner to the card with Foam Tape. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Shamrock and Amethyst Sequins to give it a little sparkle and the card is finished! I absolutely love that cake with the beautiful flowers on it, especially in the purples and the background was so easy and fun to create! I’ll be doing that more in the future! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Colors from Andrea Challenge! Take a quick trip over the BLOG and see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery! Thank you so much for your visit today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
