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! 🙂

Hello! Yesterday turned out to be a lovely day indeed! It got up into the mid-sixties with plenty of sun! I made sure that I stepped outside quite a few times while I was at the Store! I got in a bunch of new Concord & 9th, got it all checked in and played with some of it too! After work I had dinner with my Parents and came home and cleaned a little. My friend Sue came by and so did Heather and George. A bunch of friends on a Wednesday night, who could ask for anything more?! Today Renee leaves for her little scrapbooking adventure to PA with a bunch of the ladies so I’ll be manning the Store for a few days! 😀

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

A nice layered sketch! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Heartstrings Die to cut out a piece of Illustrated Faith 12×12 Paper. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up I heat embossed the XO from the Concord & 9th Love Notes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a strip of Vellum. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed in Gold onto a strip of Black with both ends flagged. I hid the adhesive behind the black strip and adhered the vellum under it. The flower is from the Concord & 9th Fill-In Phrases Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Ballet Slippers and Bubblegum. I used my Scissors to cut it out and adhered it to the card with 3D Foam Squares. It needed a little Sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink, Pink Blush and Gold Sequins. I love that flower, so nice and simple! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you for visiting with me! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂

Well, it was back to Winter here again yesterday! We had chilly temps and lots of wind! I appreciate the tastes of Spring but I really would prefer that it stick around! I had a very busy day at the Store. I did manage to get a lot done and most of it was while I was multi-tasking which never usually goes well! LOL! I made four cards and got a few orders together. After work I came home and spent some time with Daniel. We had to go down in the basement with the flashlight and wander around! He’s such a funny little man! Heather came by around 7:00 and I helped her with her passport form and she helped me with my shredding! We ran to BJ’s and then it was time to call it a night! Tonight I’ll be heading into Manhattan to go and see play with my friend Jim, should be a great evening! 😀

Two of the cards that I made yesterday were requested by a friend and I’m sharing them with you today for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

For the first one I used the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After Photopolymer Stamp Set. The images are stamped in Jet Black and colored in with Copics. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies. To create my clouds I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders to cut out some Solar White 80lb and adhered them to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. On the bottom one I stamped the Birthday from the Lawn Fawn Let’s Bokeh and the Little One from the Lawn Fawn Little Bundle Photopolymer Stamp Sets in Jet Black and adhered the cloud with 3D Foam Squares. My happy is from the Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lobster and cut out with the Coordinating Die, it’s adhered to the cloud with Multi-Matter Medium. I added the castle and the unicorn with more 3D Foam Squares and the card is done!

For the second card I used the Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie Photopolymer Stamp Set. The images are stamped in Jet Black and again colored in with Copics, the Coordinating Dies cut them out. The Stitched Hillside Borders cut out a piece of Herb Garden and the Little Picket Fence Border cuts out some Solar White 80lb. I adhered them to a piece of Moonstone and then adhered that to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The greetings are from the same sets as the first card with the happy stamped in Bubblegum. The stamped and colored images are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares and again, the card is done!

I didn’t add any sequins or other embellishments, the cards are to celebrate two one year old girl’s birthdays! I hope that you like my two cards for this week’s Paper Players challenge! I thank you so much for coming by today! Have a totally awesome Thursday! 🙂

Still absolutely freezing here and the wind down by the Store is unreal! It feels more like Winter now that it has all Winter! I keep telling myself that Spring is just around the corner, I guess we are still a few blocks from that corner! Other than the wind by the Store it was a nice day inside. I got more accomplished than I thought I would, that’s always a nice surprise! On my way home I spoke to Sue and then Heather. When I got to my Parent’s Daniel and my Brother were there so we all had dinner together. After dinner I spoke to Andrew and Jim, it was a busy phone night! Later on I took a ride over to Sue’s and spent a little time with her and her Husband Joe. We had a nice evening. I got a text from a friend that was so sweet, you know of those ones that just makes your heart feel full, what a wonderful way to end the day! Today is day one of this month’s Lawn Fawn Card Class, can’t wait to see all of my peeps!

While I was at the store I made a quick card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I used some more of the Add-Ons to the March My Monthly Hero Kit! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Hero Arts Wood Floor Bold Prints Background to stamp a piece of Solar White 80lb in Soft Brown and adhered it to the card front. My images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Produce and Seeds Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Lemon Lime. I backed it with a piece of Crisp Green and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam at a slight angle. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix Sequins and the card is done! I absolutely love that Wood Floor Background, it’s soon to be a favorite for sure! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thanks for visiting! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

Guess what?! It’s Winter here again! Why won’t he stay away?! We are having some snow this morning, over it people! But it is Friday! So at least that’s good! I had a solo day at the Store yesterday. My Parents came by for a visit and we FaceTimed with my Aunt Shirley in England. Jan also stopped by to make the Pop-Up Card from last week’s class. After work I had dinner and then headed over to Heather’s for Thirsty Thursday. Stephanie was there and Brian stopped by too. Hopefully the roads won’t be bad and I’ll be able to get to the Store today. Ugh! Enough with the snow already! 😀

I did have a little crafty time at the Store and I made a card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

I began by stamping the beautiful image from The Ton Haute Wedding Dress Photopolymer Stamp Set In Memento Tuxedo Black and using my Copics to color her in. I cut the image out with my scissors and then ran a Memento Tuxedo Black Pen around the edges. To give it some sparkle I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to give a nice sheen to the dress. The background is a piece of Solar White 80lb that I heat embossed the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background in Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. I added some Ballet Slippers Ink to the background with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. A strip of paper from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes Petite Paper Pad goes down the left side. I adhered the main image to the card with 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Perfectly Penned Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto another piece of Solar White 80lb that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts and that too is adhered with 3D Foam Squares. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sequins from the Sweet Pea Mix and the card is done! I have liked that stamp since I first saw it and I couldn’t hold out any longer! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have a fun Friday! 🙂

We had a weird day weather wise here yesterday, it was supposed to be in the 70’s and didn’t get past 50 and was windy and misty, just odd. I had one of those I can’t focus mornings but managed to get it together by the afternoon! I made my card for today and for tomorrow too! After work I stopped home and then headed over to the Massapequa Park train station to pick up my friend Chantal! We haven’t seen each other in way too long! We had a lovely dinner at a little restaurant in town and got all caught up! I have missed her! A little TV when I got home and then a relatively early night. 😀

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of paper from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wonder Petite Paper Pad cut with the largest of the Zig Zag Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts adhered to the front as the background. Next I stamped my flowers, leaves and butterflies from the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Lavender, Juice Box, Ballet Slippers, Bubblegum, Sunflower, Carrot, Jalapeño and Noble Fir Ink and used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out. My greetings are from the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Bubblegum, Carrot and Juice Box and also cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I used the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out two pieces of Wildflower Honey and a piece of Ballerina Pink. They are adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. All that was left to do was to adhere the images and greetings! I love the nice soft colors and the Happy, Happy, Happy set is one greeting set that everyone should have! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge from LeAnne! Thanks you for your visit! Have an interesting Thursday! 🙂
