And back to reality! I did have one of the best weekends in recent memory! We all had so much fun at Jim’s country house on the lake! The traffic was a little horrendous on the way home but that’s New York! We did stop for a little lunch and I got back to my house around 4:30. I decompressed for a bit and then Taylor came by and we ran a few errands and got Wendy’s for dinner. I also made my card for today! This morning I’m off to Manhattan to see my friend Isabella! It’s been way too long! 😀

That card that I made is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Hero Arts Delicate Petals Stencil with my Stencil Brush and some Lime Green Ink to add a little color to the background. Down the left side is a strip of Night of Navy. The Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies are used to cut out a piece of Lime and I adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. My butterflies are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set, I stamped them in Tide Pool and Navy using my Mini MISTI and then cut them out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto another strip of Night of Navy. All of the butterflies and greeting are adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I really am enjoying my stencils and brush, such an easy way to add some color to a card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks for starting your week off here with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Another quick weekend done! I hope that you all enjoyed your Father’s Day! I had a nice quiet day, did some laundry in the morning and spent some time with Dad. Taylor came by in the afternoon and we had dinner and watched a little TV. I think it’s supposed to rain again today, guess I will try and get some card making in! 😀

Let’s start the week off with my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I really have been enjoying making clean and simple cards lately! Today is another simple one layer one! To my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped some images and a greeting from the Concord & 9th Birdie Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice and Moonstone Ink. I added some Black Gel pen to the eyes and some gold to their beaks. The background needed a little something so I took my Uni-ball Gold Gel Pen and added some dots. That’s it! A super simple card using minimal supplies! It would be a great one to make into a set to give to someone too! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you so much for starting another week off her with me! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

What can I say about my Sunday… well, for starters this was pretty much my view for the day…

That was at 7:30am but you can see that it was a perfect day! They had the Long Beach LGBT Pride on the Beach weekend and Jim had to be there for work so I spent the day with him on the boardwalk. I got to see a lot of people from FREE where I used to work and also got to meet a few people from Jim’s work and they were awesome peeps! I sometimes forget that I live on an island with pretty nice beaches! We were there until 6:00. After we packed up the car we stopped and got some dinner and went back to Jim’s to eat. The perfect end to a wonderful, amazing weekend! 😀

To start off the week I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Once again I just wanted to stamp! I created a card base out of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and masked off a section near the top. In that section I stamped the balloons from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits Photopolymer Stamp Set and outlines in Slate, Catkin, Lake Shores and Duckling. After I removed the masks I added a strip of Black 110lb Card Stock to the top and bottom of the stamped area. Just one thing left, I stamped the greeting in Slate and finished! Super simple and extremely mailable! Win-win! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for once again starting your week off with me! Have an extremely excellent Monday! 🙂

It was another day that started out gloomy and turned bright and sunny by the afternoon! I got lots accomplished too, made a few cards, made a bunch of thank you cards for a friend, ran to the Post Office and had dinner with my Parents. We did another Wine Wednesday this week. Heather, Steph and I were joined by Taylor for a little while. Always love to get see the child! This morning I have a lot of planning to do, staying focused is the key! LOL!

One of my cards that I made yesterday is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I played with some more of my Simon Stamps! To create my background I used the Simon Says Stamp Waves Stencil along with my Stencil Brush and some Lake Shores Ink. The corners are rounded with my Corner Chomper and the panel is adhered to a Black panel that is then adhered to my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I die cut the Echo Park Picture Wheel Die from more Black and adhered it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. The feathers, leaves and greeting are from the Simon Says Stamp Oh Happy Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the feathers in Teeny Bikini, the leaves in Jellybean and the greeting in Scuba. I used the Coordinating Happy Day Dies to cut them out. The leaves and feathers are adhered to each other, a piece of Hemptique Black Natural Hemp Twine is tied into a bow around the bottom and they are adhered to the picture wheel with E-Z Runner. For the greeting I used some more 3M Foam Tape. Just a few Recollections Enamel Dots complete the card! I still have a soft spot for some feathers and I love that picture wheel! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge! Thanks so much for visiting today! Have an amazing Thursday! 🙂

It turned out to be another nice day, I’m sure that our luck will run out soon enough! I did get some crafting done, sent out a few packages and got to play with my little buddy Daniel. He rode his big wheel back and forth between my Parent’s house and mine, thinks he’s such a big boy! When he gets here he opens the door and walks right in! We all had dinner together and then I headed over to Heather’s for an early Thirsty Thursday with her and Steph. A nice day was had by me! 😀

The Paper Players have a fun challenge this week and so I’m sharing my card for it with you today…

I have had the Concord & 9th Butterfly Card Dies and I don’t think that I have used to make the interlocking card until now! I used Neenah Desert Storm 80lb Card Stock and die cut the card parts and then the wings. I scored and folded my card, which is a note card size and used the card dies to cut out some Pool Party to adhere behind the wings. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Butterfly Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto another strip of Desert Storm and adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape. I happened to have some Note Card size Kraft Envelopes so I stamped the small butterflies from the set in Soft Pool onto the front. Love that interlocking butterfly, such a fun and different kind of card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you very much for visiting with me! Have a terrific Thursday! 🙂

Just a gorgeous day here yesterday! I charged up the MacBook and sat outside on the patio for most of the day. It was warm with a nice breeze, perfect! Today is supposed to be a bit warmer and I’m fine with that! I’ll be sitting outside again! I went over to have dinner with Heather and George last night and it was delicious! The espresso martini was pretty good too! We sat outside and enjoyed a lovely evening! Today I have some orders to get out, yay! 😀

I ventured into the Stampin’ Galley yesterday and one of the cards that I made is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I did another single layer card! Up in the left corner I stamped some flowers and leaves from the Concord & 9th Wildflower Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I masked off the large flower and stamped the rest around it. To color them in I used my Copics and then used the C01 Marker to put a light gray outline around the cluster. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th All About You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using my Mini MISTI so I could double stamp it to make it nice and bold. I added just a few Enamel Dots and the card is done! I love that greeting and the fun bright colors of the flowers! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

Yes, it was another sunny but windy day here. I kept myself busy at the Store, got a card made and did a few other things. Some dinner with my Parent’s when I got home and then a few errands. My friend has been telling me that I need to watch Blindspot so I finally caved last night. I’m glad that I did! It’s a very good show! I don’t even want to admit to how many episodes I binge watched! LOL! Let’s just say that I’m well into season one! 😀

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

It’s a very simple card that uses a set that I have had for ages and never used! I’m sure that has never happened to you! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Ballerina Pink. I heat embossed the pretty filagree from the Mama Elephant Filagree Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Kraft and adhered that to the card. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in gold. I used the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies to cut it out and adhered it to the card with a 3D Foam Square. To finish the card I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins. I’m sort of confused as to why it took me so long to use the set, I love the the stamp! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for stopping by! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂

I managed to have a nice productive day at the Store, it’s nice to have a day to myself but I do miss Renee. I spoke to her last night and she got all of her stuff done for the baby shower that she needed to! My Parent’s came by the Store with Daniel for a bit, that was a nice surprise! I also got to see him when I got home. I had some left over Greek food for dinner and then spoke to Andrew for a bit. Some TV and that was the day for me. Today I have some peeps coming in to make the step card and then I’m off to a friends for dinner tonight! 😀

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

I had gotten one of the add-ons from the April My Monthly Hero Kit release and hadn’t inked it up yet so I decided to use it on today’s card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of dark peach down the center. On my panel I stamped the image and greeting from the Hero Arts Dress Up Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the girl in with Copics. The dress is a piece of Echo Park Summer Party Blazing Floral 12×12 Paper that I cut with the dress die in the set. I folded it and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold Sequins complete the card! It’s a nice fun set and the pleated dress is pretty cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks you for visiting with me today! Have a fun Thursday! 🙂

It couldn’t decided whether it was going to be sunny or rain yesterday but it did finally make up it’s mind around 5:30 when it started to drizzle. Another relatively quiet day at the Store. I did make a card, it’s my daily therapy! After work some dinner with my Parent’s, tacos, and then a night on the couch with the TV. Sometimes when I have a lot on my mind I find the TV distracts me, does that work for you too? Card Class today… fun!

I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge to share with you today, they have a fun one this week but before we get to it I want to thank Deanne for choosing my card from last week for her Cut Above! You can see my original post HERE and the winners post HERE! Now for this week…

I haven’t made any sort of 3D card in a long time so I decided I needed to do something about that! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I googled and found some instructions on how to make a step card, got out my Scoring Board and got to work. The Lawn Fawn Road Border Lawn Cut is cut from Battleship Gray and adhered to the front left and back right. My images come from three sets from Lawn Fawn, the Bicycle Built for You, Happy, Happy, Happy and Fab Flowers. I stamped the images from Bicycle Built for You in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are are cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts and adhered to the back step with Tombo Dot Runner Adhesive. My happy and Mother’s Day are from the Happy, Happy, Happy Set and are stamped in Lobster, the happy is cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cut and adhered to the middle step and the Mother’s Day is stamped on the front step. I stamped two butterflies from the Fab Flowers Set in Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum and Memento Tuxedo Black, cut them out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts and adhered them to the left panel with 3M Foam Tape. I wanted to keep the card on the simple side as to no take away from the step aspect! LOL! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! I thank you for visiting and wish you a happy Thursday! 🙂

After another dreary start to the day the sun finally came out in the afternoon and it turned out to be quite pleasant! Our friend Evelyn stopped by the Store and I helped her make a wedding card using some dies and a few stamps. When I got home I picked up Winston from my Parent’s and then my friend Danielle came by. We went to Smashburger for dinner and then did a little shopping before coming back to my house to hang out and chat. Today I have my Wedding Card and Gift Box Class and then tonight is Thirsty Thursday! 😀

I have a nice quick quirky Easter card to share with you for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

To create my background I used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Soft Pool and Cup O Joe Ink to a panel of Solar White 80lb using a piece of Post-it tape so I got a nice crisp line between the colors. Next up I die cut the fence using one of the dies from the March My Monthly Hero Kit from another piece of Solar White 80lb and adhered that to the background. My rabbit and lettuce are also from the March My Monthly Hero Kit and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. The background is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the images with 3D Foam Squares. I didn’t have a happy Easter greeting from Hero so I used the Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black. Like I said a nice quick card, everyone always uses carrots so I decided to go with lettuce instead! LOL! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! I appreciate you stopping by and wish you a fun Thursday! 🙂
