SIP Challenge 168 – Tic-Tac-Toe

SIP Challenge 168 – Tic-Tac-Toe

Hi there! Did you all have a nice weekend?! I did! Saturday night I had dinner with Jim and Sunday I went into Manhattan to see my friends Jon and Mary and then met up with Kim. We had a quick lunch and then she took me to see the final performance of the play Carousel on Broadway for my Birthday! It was a beautiful day too so we wandered around a bit. I ended up walking seven miles! A good weekend indeed! 😀

It’s Tuesday and time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

I went diagonally from the bottom left to the top right! I started my card by stamping the background using the Concord & 9th Happy Plaids Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merman and Freshly Cut Grass using my MISTI onto Solar White 80lb. Next I die cut the tag and pocket from Kraft and Vellum. Onto both I heat embossed my greeting from the Concord & with Holiday Cheer Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. A piece of Fun Foam is adhered to the back of the Vellum pocket. I added Gold Thread and some pine that I die cut from Noble Fir using a die from the Concord & 9th Happy Holidays Label Dies. For my card base I added a piece of Kraft to Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is adhered and then the tag. A simple and fun card using my favorite colors for the Holidays! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! You can stop by the BLOG for more inspiration and we hope to see your card in the gallery! Thank you for visiting with me today, enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 167 – Large Sentiment!

SIP Challenge 167 – Large Sentiment!

Hi there and a happy Tuesday to you all! I hope that you all had a nice weekend, I did! Although, it has been raining here since Saturday night and looks it will be raining through the rest of the week. Thankfully I have been getting a little more of my MOJO back so spending time in the Stampin’ Galley will be fun! I also got some Polychromos Pencils and Alcohol Ink and I need to try them! LOL! 😀

Since it’s Tuesday it’s time for a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

I have a few of the Concord & 9th Turnabout Stamps that I haven’t had the chance to play with so I pulled one out to have a little play! My background is stamped on a piece of Solar White 80lb with Hippo, Freshly Cut Grass, Merman and Fresh Lavender Ink using the Concord & 9th Lovely Blossoms Photopolymer Stamp and my MISTI. It’s adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my greeting I used the FRIEND from the Concord & 9th Posie Fill-In Die and cut it out from Black 110lb. It’s adhered to a piece of Vellum with Glue Tube. To add it to the card I cut some Black 3D Foam Squares and hid them behind the letters. Just a few Basic Jewels Rhinestones scattered across from top left to lower right complete the card! I really do love those Turnabout Stamps, you can make awesome backgrounds in any color that you want!

I hope that you enjoyed my card! Be sure to stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s projects and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for visiting and have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Thankful Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Thankful Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Happy September! Hopefully the warm weather stays around for a while longer even though technically the Summer is over. I had a great week up at the lake last week, a nice way to end the Summer for sure. I started watching my Niece and Nephew again, Daniel goes to full day kindergarten so it’s just me and Tristan for most of the day. I’m not looking forward to the cooler weather at all! How bout you?! 😀

It’s time for my August Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! The Thankful Leaves Dies are definitely my favorite from last month’s release! I love that leaf die so I used it again on today’s card. I was watching one of Jennifer McGuire’s videos and decided that I wanted to try one of her shadowbox cards! I did all of the steps to make the box for the card using Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the die cut inside I used just the outline of the Leaf Die. For my background I stamped the Thankful Leaves Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp in Freshly Cut Grass and a Sunflower, twice with each color, onto Solar White 80lb. The panel is trimmed to fit inside the card. On the front of the card I used the Leaf Die again with the inside piece to cut out some Lime Glitter Paper from the Summer Glitter Paper Pack. It’s adhered to the card front with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Along the bottom I stamped the THANKFUL, also from the Thankful Leaves Turnabout in Freshly Cut Grass. To go inside my die cut leaf on the inside of the card I used a piece of Heat Resistant Acetate and heat embossed another greeting in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. It’s adhered to the back of the die cut panel with Scor-Tape. All that was left to do was assemble the card. I’ll definitely be making more shadowbox cards, love the way they look!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Grateful for Everything!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – Grateful for Everything!

Happy last Friday of August to you all! I can’t believe that the Summer is almost over! It went so fast. I had a very nice week that I spent at Jim’s house in Pennsylvania. The weather was perfect, no rain and nice and warm. I even went in the lake! We also made two headboards from palette wood. I love the way that they came out! You’ll have to let me know what you think!

I think they add a nice rustic look that’s perfect for a lake house! I came home last night and didn’t hit any traffic until I got to the George Washington Bridge. There is always so much traffic in New York, even at 9:00PM! 😀

It’s time for our last Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th’s August release. Today we are featuring the Grateful for Everything Stamps and Dies! A beautiful floral spray that is slightly larger than an A2 card.

I felt like using my colored pencils to do a little coloring so I stamped the floral image from the Grateful for Everything Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice onto a piece of Kraft. Once I had finished my coloring I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out.

My greeting is cut from a piece of Black 110lb and adhered to a card base of Kraft Card Stock with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. The floral image is added and I used my Scissors to trim off the overhang and the card is done! Nice and simple, you could stamp a few of the floral images and take them with you to color!

I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! Thank you so much for visiting and have a spectacular weekend! 🙂

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – So Happy for You!

Feature Friday for Concord & 9th – So Happy for You!

Happy Friday peeps! I have had a pretty quiet week. Got some things done around the house, caught up on a bunch of stuff and binged some Netflix. I want to make plans to maybe go into Manhattan this weekend but it’s supposed to rain and they can’t decide if it’s going to be on Saturday or Sunday. I think that we should be able to determine that by now! I’m going to be taking care of my friends Brian and Kim’s girls Izzy and Savannah next week while they go away on vacation. Gotta plan some things to get us out of the house! LOL! 😀

It’s time for another Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! This week we are using the So Happy for You Stamps and Dies!

I also used the Top it Off Stamps and Dies! To start my card I stamped the flowers and leaves from the So Happy for You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sugarplum, Peachy Keen, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass and Noble Fir and then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. For my greeting I stamped the Oh Happy Day from the Top it off Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sugarplum onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then used the hoop die to cut it out. For the outline I used the hoop die to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Paper from the Neutrals Glitter Pack. Another circle is cut from another piece of Solar White 110lb using the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. The stamped greeting and hoop are added to the circle with E-Z Runner and Multi-Purpose Spray. It looked a little plain so I used the Oh Happy Day Die to cut out some more Gold Glitter Paper and then added that to the greeting. I arranged my flowers and leaves behind the circle and then picked them up with some Glad Press n Seal, added adhesive to the back and adhered them to the card. The circle is then adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I love the bright flowers and bold sparkly greeting, a happy day indeed!

I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Feature Friday post for Concord & 9th! Thanks you for spending a little time with me today! Have a fantastic Weekend! 🙂

Thanks Peach – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hello peeps! It’s been a while I know! I hope that you all have been well. I’m enjoying my Summer and hope that you all are too. Not too sure what I’m up to today but it’s supposed to be in the 90’s so maybe a trip into the city?! 😀

It’s time for my August Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! I love the new Dip Dyed Cards and Envelopes that Concord released last month so I used one to make my card for today! I started by heat embossing the thank you from the Triple-Step Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Iridescent Vellum using my Mini MISTI and then cut it out with the Coordinating Dies. The peach is from the same set and is stamped in Carrot and Cranberry for the peach and Noble Fir for the leaf. The Coordinating Dies cut that out too. I stamped the you’re a peach in Peacock and then used 3M Foam Tape to adhered the thank you and the peach to the card base. Don’t those Dip Dyed cards make cool backgrounds?!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Mixed Media!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Mixed Media!

Happy Monday! I trust that you all had a nice weekend! I did! Yesterday I went out East with a friend, we had lunch by a stream and then stopped in Port Jefferson on the way back. It was the perfect day for a road trip in the convertible! I also picked up a Rhubarb Pie, my Great Grandmother used to grow Rhubarb and makes pies when I was little! The pie wasn’t as good as hers but it definitely brought back memories! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

I got use one of the NEW Stamp and Die Sets from this month’s release to make my card! I also dug out some Glitter Paste and used a lot of pink and a little ribbon, now there are a few things I don’t often use! My background is a piece of Iridescent Pink 65lb Card. I used my Palette Knife to add Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter Paste through the Concord & 9th Retro Petals Turnabout Stencil and set it aside to dry. From the Concord & 9th Laurel Frame Photopolymer Stamp Set I stamped the wreath in Jalapeño and Noble Fir and the flowers in Ballet Slippers, Peachy Keen and Bubblegum using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. Once the background was dry I added a piece of Stampin’ Up! 1 1/4″ Pink Pirouette Ribbon and adhered it around the back. The background is then added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To adhere the wreath and flowers I used 3M Foam Tape. Finally, I cut out the hello, also from the Laurel Frames Dies, from more 110lb and used Multi-Matte Medium to add it to the ribbon. The pictures don’t do the Sugar Paste justice, it’s subtle but nice and sparkly!

Retro You’re My Jam – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Retro You’re My Jam – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Hi everyone! It’s time for my June Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge Blog! When I saw the new Mix Tape Stamps and Dies I had to have them! Brings back memories of my youth! LOL!

I started by stamping the cassette tape from the Concord & 9th Mix Tape Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice onto Solar White 80lb and then used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. I used some of the other Dies in the Set to cut out the outline of the tape and music notes. I also used another Die to emboss the detail on the Black Die cut. I assembled the cassette tape and used my Mini Misti to stamp the “tape heart” onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Next I stamped the You’re My Jam onto more Solar White 80lb and cut it out with my Scissors. To assemble the card I used 3m Foam Tape to adhere the cassette tape and greeting to my card base and some Multi-Matte Medium to add the music notes. A nice simple black and white card to give to someone special!

Fab Friday 138 – Colors!

Fab Friday 138 – Colors!

Hello!! How are you all?! I’m good! It was such a beautiful day yesterday, nice and warm and sunny! I had a meeting at Nassau Community College in the morning and then after that I took a little time to sit outside and enjoy! Wednesday I was at The Ink Pad covering the Shop for Anna so that she could go to the Stationary Show at the Javits Center. This past weekend I was in PA with Jim. They had a tornado touch down on the property and it did quite a bit of damage. Thankfully none to Jim’s house. I don’t have any big plans for this weekend, just going to take it easy, what about you guys? 😀

I received some new goodies from Concord & 9th and finally had the urge to make a card! Yay! Been such a long time! That card is for the Fab Friday challenge…

I started by heat embossing the large geode from the Concord & 9th Geode Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Card. Next I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Plastic Flamingo, Peachy Keen and Ballet Slippers Ink. The Coordinating Die cuts out the image. To make it look a little more realistic I painted on Multi-Matte Medium and then added Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter. It’s then added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Grey 110lb on the front for the background. My greeting is also from the Concord & 9th Geode Dies and is cut from Black 110lb and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I love that stamp, such a cool image and not one that I have seen before! I hope that you like my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for spending some time with me today! Have a fabulous Friday and a fun weekend! 🙂

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Floral!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Floral!

Happy mid-week! The weather has finally gotten a little more Spring like here on Long Island and I’m loving it! I have been making sure that I spend a lot of time outside! Even it’s just sitting in the backyard doing a little reading. Speaking of reading I have read 6 books in the past three weeks! I got a Kindle Paperwhite and am loving it! The series that I just finished is called Breakthrough by Michael Grumley. It was fantastic and I highly recommend it! I also bought a Pallet Buster to easily take apart pallets for some projects. Another highly recommended item! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

I have been on a wreath kick lately, they make such a nice focal point for a card and they aren’t just for the Holiday’s anymore! I began by stamping the wreath from the Concord & 9th Magnolia Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Freshly Cut Grass and Jalapeño using my Mini MISTI. I then stamped the greeting from the same set in Black Licorice. For the flowers I used the Coordinating Die Set to cut them from some 65lb Rose Quartz Stardream Metallic. To adhere them to the card I used Mini Glue Dots and added a Basic Jewel Rhinestone to the center of each of them for a little sparkle! Another simple card! I do love the metallic look of the flowers, adds a little something extra don’t you think?!
