Freshly Made Sketches 309

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! 🙂

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 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! 🙂

A holiday on a Monday always makes the week move a little faster! It was sort of overcast and rainy on and off for most of the day so I thought that it would be the perfect day to catch up on my neglected blog comments. I read them as they come in but I have been bad at responding lately. But after three hours they have all been responded to! I feel the love from you guys and you should always feel it right back! I didn’t get much else done but today is a new day to accomplish! Maybe I will give the kitchen cabinets a try! 😀

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

To start I stamped the Concord & 9th Sprinkles Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp in Grape Soda, Sugarplum, Plastic Flamingo and Bubblegum using my MISTI onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The ballon and greeting are from the Concord & 9th Happy Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Bubblegum and Sugarplum. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out along with the string. They are are adhered to a piece of 27lb Pastel Pink Vellum and then adhered to the card! A simple bright birthday card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

Another fun filled productive day with Sue yesterday! We got a lot accomplished and that is always a good thing! I stopped home and had a quick dinner and then headed over to Heather’s to get her so that we could go and see Brian Kim for a bit last night. We sat around the fire pit just like old times! Kim is taking the kids to see her Aunt in Florida this weekend, a nice quick getaway for them. Today I’m going to continue to work on some projects and get them out of the way! 😀

I did squeeze in a card yesterday and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

To start my card I stamped my images from the Concord & 9th Enjoy it All Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jalapeño, Fresh Lavender, Sugarplum, Merman and Peacock. They are cut out using the Coordinating Dies from the Detailed Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set and arranged them onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock so that I would know where to stamp my greeting from the same set in Jalapeño. The flowers and leaves are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares and I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Lucky and Sea Breeze Sequins for a little shine! A simple little flower cluster and a nice bold greeting makes for a fun card don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for visiting today! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

I guess what they say is true about time flying but I don’t necessarily think that you need to be having fun! I did have a little bit more of a productive day yesterday and today I will be going over to see my friend Sue for some Etsy stuff! Last night Jim came by and we grabbed some pizza for dinner and watched a movie. A nice evening indeed! 😀

The card that I made late last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I started by trimming a piece of Solar White 80lb to 4 3/4″ wide by 4″ tall and placed it in my Mini MISTI. That fun image is from the Concord & 9th Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the outline in Black Licorice and then stamped the fill-in images in Peacock, Jalapeño, Juice Box, Carrot, Sunflower and Noble Fir. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Aloha Friend Photopolymer Stamp Set and that is stamped in Peacock. I adhered a piece of Peacock Card Stock to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My stamped panel is then trimmed using the Concord & 9th Select-A-SIze Edge Die and adhered to the card base. I added Pretty Pink Posh Ocean Spray, Orchid and Lemon Drop Sequins to finish the card. Love that fun pineapple with all of the flowers and the fill-in images make it nice and easy to make it look great! I hope that you like my card for his week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank your stopping by! Have a exciting Thursday! 🙂

Hi peeps! Another beautiful day here on Long Island! I ran a bunch of errands in the morning and saw the kiddos for a little bit. Around 2:00 I headed out to meet Jim at Home Depot so we could pick up some more supplies and continue on with our furniture projects! We got a lot more done, the end table is almost finished and the chairs are all stripped and one is sanded. We had some Chinese food for dinner and I headed back to my house around 9:00. Steph came by for a little bit and we sat outside and chatted. I made my card for today and called it a night! 😀

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

I kept my card nice and clean and simple! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I trimmed two pieces of paper from the Heidi Swapp Hello Today Paper Pad and adhered them to the card to match the sketch. My fun ballon is cut out from Gold Mirror Card with the Concord & 9th Happy Balloons Dies and is adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Just a few Wood Veneer Stars and Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love that fun balloon with the happy inside, so cool! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

That was a very quiet Wednesday. I guess they are good to have every so often. Taylor did come by in the evening and we watched a movie. This morning I do have a bunch of things to do and some errands to run. What are you up to today?! 😀

Another thing that I did do yesterday was make my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

To start my card I adhered a piece of Desert Storm 80lb to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. On the left is a piece of paper from the Crate Paper Story Teller 6×6 Paper Pad cut into strips to match the sketch. The large you is cut from a piece of Black 110lb using the Simon Says Stamp Big You Die, it’s adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Onto another piece of Black I heat embossed the hello from the Simon Says Stamp I See You Photopolymer Stamp Set and adhered that to the card with 3D Foam Squares. A simple card with one of my favorite types of pattern paper, a map! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for coming by!

I successfully completed the trifecta of productive days! Sue was over yesterday and we got a lot more stuff out of the Stampin’ Galley! All that’s left to do is take pictures and get it up on the Etsy site! We took a break and went out and had a quick lunch. After she left I did some chores around the house and then had dinner before heading over to see Heather for a bit. Once I got back home I made my card for today and watched some TV. Today I have some more projects to work on, it’s good to stay busy don’t you think?! 😀

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

Another pretty simple card using the Concord & 9th Orange You Sweet Photopolymer Stamp Set! On my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I masked off the center strip and stamped the images in Carrot and Black Licorice. To define the strip I used my ruler and Copic Pen to draw black lines on either side. The upper right has a piece of Fake Tan Card Stock. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in the same colors using my Mini MISTI. It needed a little something more so I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to the orange panel! Not very complicated and yes, you can tell how much I love that Set can’t you?! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thanks for coming by! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

We are on a roll! Productive days are here to stay! LOL! I got all of my list accomplished yesterday and spent some time outside enjoying the weather! Taylor came by in the afternoon and we had dinner with my Parents. After, Heather stopped by and we ran some errands, she dropped me off and then I went over to her house for a bit. When I came home Taylor and I started to watch The Fall on Netflix. A very odd and disturbing show. This morning I have some odds and ends to take care of, another productive day is ahead! 😀

My card that I made yesterday is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock cut so that when it’s folded it measures 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The background is a piece of Soft Sky layered on top of a piece of Blushing Bride. My image is from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Black Licorice. I colored in the horn and hooves with my Signo Gold Gel Pen and cut it out with the Coordinating Dies. In the Dies there is the word magic and that is cut from some Gold Glitter Card Stock. I adhered the unicorn with 3M Foam Tape and the magic with Multi-Matte Medium. A heavy dose of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is on the mane and tail along with a few spots on the body and to finish the card I added a bunch of gold dots with the Gold Pen. There are a lot of unicorns out there but I have to say this one is my favorite! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for visiting! Have a great Thursday! 🙂
