Christmas Blooms

Ahh… happy Friday peeps! It’s been cooler here but sunny and pleasant so no complaining! Yesterday turned out to be a busy day. I did get a bunch of things done in the morning. Then in the afternoon I got an email from IKEA that the couch that I have been waiting to get was on sale so Jim and I took my Dad’s truck and picked it up. We stopped and got dinner on the way back and had that before embarking on the couch assembly. It didn’t take too long and I’m really happy with it! It is also a sleeper so when my cousin comes from London again she will have someplace to stay! We finished off the evening with a little TV, enjoying the new seating! This morning I will be cutting up the three huge boxes that it came in and seeing if there is anyone that wants the old one! 😀

I have a just because card for you today! I wanted to give the new Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Stamp a try! I inked it up with Jalapeño in my MISTI and stamped it three times onto piece of Solar White 80lb. Next I used Cranberry, Lobster, Noble Fir and Sunflower to stamp the fill-in images and added it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the greeting I used the Concord & 9th Ribbon Banner Die to cut out another piece of Sailor White 80lb. The words are from the Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Noble Fir. All that was left to do was to use some 3D Foam Squares to add it to my card! I have to say that the Blooms Fill-In Stamp is pretty neat! A fun background in any colors that you can imagine! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you so much for coming but to visit with me! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

I don’t think that the internet is enjoying the shift to cooler weather, it’s painfully slow here lately! I did had a very productive day yesterday despite my little three hour trip into Manhattan to drop off Taylor. She was little anxious but after 6 hours of travel she made it safely to her destination. We also finally got one of the contractors to send an estimate for the work on Jim’s PA house. Things move at a very different pace up there! This morning I’m going to try and check a few more things off my to-do list and then Jim will be by later for dinner! 😀

My little bit of craftiness yielded my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge…

To start my card I stamped the large flower from the Concord & 9th Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Lavender and Sugarplum using my Mini MISTI so I could double stamp. The flower is cut out with the Coordinating Die. Onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock trimmed to 4″ wide I adhered a strip of Gold Mirror Card and then the flower. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto 65lb Vellum. I used the squashed hexagon die from the Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Dies to cut out the greeting. The right edge is folded over and adhered to the inside of the card with a few dots of Multi-Matte Medium behind the heat embossing to keep it in place. A simple card with that awesome huge flower! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks so much for coming by! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂

Hey there peeps! Mid-week already! I managed to get a bunch of stuff done yesterday, some computer stuff in the morning and a little cleaning in the afternoon. I do so love a productive day! Had a little dinner with my Parent’s, Dad is doing much better. I saw Taylor for a bit, she is going to Massachusetts to see a friend and has never taken Amtrak before so I get to go into Manhattan this morning and put her on the train and then come back home. Good times! LOL! 😀

Today’s card is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge…

I felt a little Deja Vu! Typically Halloween colors but not for me! LOL! I stamped the ornament from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and the merry and bright with Carrot using my Mini MISTI. The image is then colored in with Copics. For the ornament topper I cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card with the Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies. The middles of the flowers have a little Singo Gold Gel Pen. The background looked a little plain so I added dots with pen, one of my favorite ways to fill in a background! Yes, it’s not your typical red and green but it’s still merry and bright! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge!

My card that I have to share with you today is for the Fab Friday challenge…

I used some new goodies from Concord & 9th! My background is the Concord & 9th Christmas Cheer Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp. I stamped the images in Black Licorice using my MISTI and then used the fill in’s and Moonstone, Lobster, Doe, Sunflower, Noble Fir, Carrot, Sugarplum and Jalapeño Ink. It’s trimmed and adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto piece of Black 110lb that I cut out with the Concord & 9th Ribbon Banner Die. It’s adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A strip of Black 110lb and Chili Pepper are adhered to the lower right to stay true to the sketch and the card is done!

Freshly Made Sketches 308

Freshly Made Sketches 308

A rainy dreary morning here on Long Island but I had a very nice day yesterday! It was fun to see Ella and Tom. Lunch with my friend Kim was great and the weather was perfect! Taylor retrieved me from the station and dropped me off at home. Mum didn’t know what to make for dinner so I ran to the store with her and then the evening was finished with an early Thirsty Thursday and a late night trip to Target! I got up with the intentions of making my card this morning but I have been reading the new Dan Brown book Origins and can’t put it down! It’s fantastic! I have some cleaning and laundry to do this morning and then who knows?! 😀

I did finally get a card made and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese Lawn Cut to cut out a piece of DCWV Mariposa 12×12 Paper. After adhering a strip of Smoky Slate across the lower half of the card I added the frame. My butterfly is cut from some Gold Glitter Card using the Concord & 9th Floral & Flutter Dies. To adhered that to the card I used a little piece of 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Dies and is cut from a piece of Silver Glitter Card and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I do so enjoy making a card using only dies ever so often, changes it up a bit! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

Happy Columbus Day! I hope that you are lucky enough to have the day off from work today! I’m happy to report that my Dad is home from the hospital, he came home yesterday. He is feeling much better thanks in part to all of your well wishes. I really can’t thank you all enough for keeping him in your thoughts. you guys are the best peeps ever! I even got to do some fun stuff yesterday! In the morning I took a ride into Manhattan with Heather to drop her brother off at Comic-Con. After that I went with her to look at some used cars, she is trying to find one for her brother. Boy is there a lot of garbage out there! LOL! After that I spent some time with my Dad and then watched a little TV and made my card for today. Felt so good to sit down in the Stampin’ Galley! Today I have some cleaning and other chores to do. What are you up to?

Grateful Amethyst Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Happy Thursday peeps! I had a nice day yesterday with Sue. We got a lot accomplished and went out and had a nice lunch. There is always more to do so I’ll be heading back over again some time next week, I do love a productive day! Taylor stopped by in the evening and we had dinner with my Parents and after that some TV, binge watching Arrow at the moment and really liking it! Today I’ll catch up on This is Us and maybe I’ll get to some of the cabinet doors! 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! We featured and Ink Only Challenge for last month so I did a little ink blending on today’s card! One of my all time favorite images is the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock. I used the Coordinating Die to cut out the negative from a piece of Masking Paper and used my Mini Ink Blending Tools and some Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord Distress Ink to color it in. After I removed the Mask I added the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine is spattered over the card and while that dried I cut out the grateful from a piece of Gold Glitter Card and adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I love the purple and blue hues in the gold leaf and never underestimate the effect of a little ink spatter!

I hope that you like the card for my October Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog!

Happy Friday! It’s a very happy one for me, I’m off to PA through Monday with Jim! We are going to do some repairs on the house and just relax and enjoy the fresh country air! The weather is supposed to be great, let’s hope that it stays that way! Yesterday I ran a few errands in the morning and then went to BJ’s with Heather. We had some pizza for lunch and then I came back home to see Daniel and Tristan. Jason and Erika came over and we all went out to dinner to celebrate my Parent’s 49th anniversary. I’ll be heading into Manhattan this morning to see my friends Jon and Mary. I’ll meet up with Kim for lunch and then head home. Since I will be away I won’t have any posts over the weekend or on Monday but I’ll be back on Tuesday morning with my Stamp, Ink, Paper Design Team card! 😀

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

I started my card by trimming a piece of paper from the Concord & 9th Aloha Fill-In Patterned Paper Pack and adhering it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My pineapple is from the Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice. I filled in the flowers and leaves with Lobster, Bubblegum, Grape Soda, Sunflower and Noble Fir and then used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. It’s adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. The greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Black 110lb and cut out with the banner die from the same set. I used more 3M Foam Tape to adhered it to the pineapple. That’s it! I do love that fun nice big pineapple, especially with the fill-in images! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fun Friday and fabulous weekend! I’ll see you back here on Tuesday! 🙂

What started out as a what am I going to do day yesterday got quite busy! I ended up driving into Manhattan with Heather yesterday to drop off a computer that I had worked on for my friend Isabella. We made it in in about an hour and a half even though it’s UN Week. It did take us 45 minutes to go the last two miles! We had a nice visit with Isabella, no where near long enough and we made it back home in about and hour. Before I dropped Heather off we had some Subway for lunch and then I came back home. The rest of the day was spent dealing with phone upgrades with AT&T which I can assure you is never fun! I’ll be getting some cleaning done today, good stuff! 😀

It’s Paper Craft Crew time and this week we have a sketch for you…

Another simple one! I started by stamping the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Rust onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I heat embossed one of the greetings from the set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum and flagged the left side. To hold it to the card I adhered a strip of Desert Storm down the right side and tucked the vellum under it. A little strip of Gold Glitter Card is adhered near the top right of the greeting and some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins to finish the card! I think that leaf is definitely my all time favorite and the greeting is a really nice one too! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

Fab Friday 121

Fab Friday 121

It was a humid, sticky day here yesterday. Not complaining, I’ll take that over cold any day! I managed to get a few things out of the way in the morning, stained a switch plate cover, did a little laundry. Around 3:00 Heather dropped me off at the train station so that I could head into Manhattan. I made sure that I left myself enough time to walk to my destination. I met up with Chantal outside her office on 5th and then we walked over to wait for Kim. She works in the building that I used to work in when I was in the city. The three of us headed over to Omar’s for dinner, they have the best hummus and falafel! From there we said goodbye to Chantal and Kim and I walked over to the theater on 45th and 8th to see Kinky Boots. I have to say it was one of the best plays that I have seen! If you get a chance to see it make sure that you do! I got back out on the Island around 11:00 and was done! I’ll be going over to Jim’s house later on this morning to wait for the guy to come and measure for the new side door. 😀

It’s Friday! And it’s a Fab Friday too! We have a simple sketch for you this time around…

I started off by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Concord & 9th Hope Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jalapeño, Grape Juice and Juice Box. They are cut out with my Scissors, love a little fussy cutting! The label is cut from a piece of Desert Storm 80lb with the Concord & 9th Hope Label Dies. I added the flowers and leaves to it with Dot Runner adhesive and 3M Foam Tape, stamped the greeting from the same set in Grape Juice and then adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock With Fun Foam. For a little extra interest I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets! Love the loose brushstroke look of the flowers, don’t you?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks for catching up with me today! Enjoy your Friday! 🙂
