Pals Paper Arts 280

Yesterday was my friend Heather’s Grandfather’s funeral. The service was in Valley Stream and I went with Brian. It was a lovely service to remember a very nice man. I had only had the pleasure of meeting him a few times but on those occasions he was always smiling. The priest said that you should think of the times that you got to see him and remember what stands out most in your mind, for me that was him smiling. From there we went to the National Cemetery for the Air Force ceremony. I have never been to a military service and it was quite interesting to see. No matter when you hear TAPS played, especially on a single trumpet in the rain, it’s sad. But I can still see him smiling. After the service Brian and I had lunch and then I came home and stopped by parent’s to see Daniel, he can always make you smile too! I spoke to Andrea for a bit and then Taylor came over and we went to the mall so she could get some shoes. We stopped at IKEA and I got a few Christmas decorations and then came back home, spoke to Andrew for a bit and crafted before calling it a night.

I haven’t played along with the Pals in a while but when I saw this weeks’ sketch a card popped into my head so I had to participate…

PPA 280

It’s a very clean and simple card but was fun to make! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is another piece of Solar White 110lb, I wrapped some DMC Gold Thread around the bottom and then adhered the background to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The tree is from the Hero Arts Joy to the World Photopolymer Stamp Set (I have been using that a lot lately!) and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Canson 140b Cold Press Watercolor Paper. I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a wet paintbrush to color in the tree. It’s cut out with Paper Snips and adhered to the card with more Fun Foam and SNAIL. The merry is cut from a piece of Craft Smart Holiday Foil 6×6 Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Deco Tree Craft Dies and is adhered to the tree with Multi-Matte Medium. A few Pretty Pink Posh Christmas and Seattle Mix Sequins scattered across the front complete the card. I love the heat embossed and watercolored images, the variation in color is so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thank you for visiting today! Have a super Saturday! 🙂

That was an interesting Friday. I found out at work that they are having cuts and my job has been eliminated. I have to go in on Monday and see if there are any other positions available that I would be interested in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, so I need to think about what I want to do. I would like to get a job that I really enjoy or maybe find some way to work for myself. Any suggestions would be appreciated! To go along with that cheerful news it rained here all day yesterday. But I’m off to Manhattan this morning and then at The Ink Pad tomorrow so it will be a good weekend!

And yes, Michael has yet another post for you! That’s three in a row! He’s definitely on a roll! You can take a look at his latest creation HERE!

Now on to today’s card, it’s for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…

PPA 270

I went with a birthday card, they are something that I need to add to my ever growing stash! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. It’s cut to 4″ wide and I heat embossed the chevrons from the Simon Says Stamp I See You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder down the left side. A piece of Always Artichoke is embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered next to the chevrons with SNAIL. My frame is cut from Sahara Sand using the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Frame Die. I heat embossed the heart image from the same set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Blackberry Bliss and adhered it to the frame with 2-Way Glue. The frame is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The happy is also from the same set and is heat embossed in White on Always Artichoke and adhered to the heart with Foam Tape. To balance the card a bit I cut out the 2 and u from more Always Artichoke using the Papertrey Ink Block Alphabet and Numbers Dies. They are adhered to the card with more 2-Way Glue. You knew there had to be some Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins on there somewhere so I did a scattering of them around the heart. I love that geometric heart and the typed sentiments in the I See You Set, so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thanks very much for coming by today! I wish you all a fun Saturday! 🙂

Oh yes peeps… it’s FRIDAY!! I headed straight over to Scrap-A-Latte after work to finish cutting for class and set up. The drive over was lovely in the convertible! There were 15 people in class last night and like I said, the cards were complicated so the last one finished around 10:00. Not bad, three hours for four cards that had a lot of coloring! I got home around 10:30 and made a quick card for today’s post.

Oh, and just because you know how I love Sam, his new single for the James Bond movie Spectre is out today! You can listen here!

The quick card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 269

I have been in a Lawn Fawn frame of mind lately so I dug out an oldie but goodie! The card base is Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock. The balloon, clouds and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped part of the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black on the card base. A piece of Soft Sky is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Circles and adhered to the card with SNAIL. The clouds are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Vellum, cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the circle with 2-Way Glue. I colored in the balloon with Copics, also cut out with the dies, and adhered that with some Foam Tape. For the word BLUE I used the Lawn Fawn Owen’s ABC’s Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamped in Pacific Point, cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the card with some more Foam Tape. I think that this would make a great little pick me up card to send to someone that might be going through a rough patch, it would brighten my day! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Don’t forget that I will be posting the class cards tomorrow! Thanks so much for coming by and I wish you all a fantastic Friday! 🙂

Pals Paper Arts 265

A super happy Friday to you! Yes, I’m off from work until September 21st! Michael stopped by the office yesterday and said goodbye to everyone and then I did the same. I did manage to get out of work at 2:00 and I came home and made a few cards and then went to Smashburger for dinner with Michael and Taylor. We stopped off and got some dessert on the way home and then I helped Michael with some pictures on his computer. I still can’t believe that he is going home tomorrow. This afternoon I’m going to take a ride into Manhattan with Brian to pick up his passport, don’t ask, LOL! We are also going to stop by Kim’s and get a couch that she’s giving me and then take my couch over to Heather. Tonight Michael is going to stay by me and then tomorrow night I will take him to JFK. Bummer.

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

PPA 265

A super simple sketch and I got my Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit yesterday so I had to play with it! The base of today’s card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card stock with a piece of Basic Black covering the front. For the background I used a piece of paper from the PInkFresh Studios Happy Things 6×6 Paper Pad. The main panel is a piece of Solar White 80lb backed with some more Basic Black. The images are from the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Teal, Teeny Bikini and Duckling Ink. The outlines are stamped in Smoke and the strings and bows in Memento Tuxedo Black. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed on a piece of Basic Gray in White Hero Arts Embossing Powder. I adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL, tucking the greeting underneath. To balance the card I adhered some Pretty Pink Posh Spring Mix, Hazel & Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Essentials by Ellen Iridescent Gray and Matte Black Sequins with some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium on the right side of the panel. I love all of the goodies that you get in this month’s kit especially the fun stamp set! I really hope that you enjoy today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thank you for visiting me today and I wish you a fantastic Friday! 🙂

A good afternoon to you! I had another lazy morning, I’m starting to like them too much! LOL! Just hanging around talking and watching YouTube videos with Michael. Yesterday after work I came home and made my card for today. Michael got to me a little later than planned so we decided to go out and get salads from La Bottega and watch a movie. We watched The Holiday with Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Jack Black, it’s one of my favorite movies and Michael had never seen it. He liked it too! Today we are going to go to street fair in Westbury and then who knows. I hope that your weekend is off to a good start!

The card that I made is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 264

This was another one that I put together in my little brain while I was at work! That card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Bermuda Bay with a piece of Vellum over the top that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Feathers Embossing Folder. Three strips of The Paper Cuts Blueprint Curious Metallic Card Stock are adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I stamped the three feathers from the Mama Elephant Fair Feathers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Pool to Navy Ombre Ink and then cut them out with the matching Mama Elephant Fair Feathers Creative Cuts Die. The feathers are also adhered to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Mama Elephant Heartfelt Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in The Pool to Navy Ink. I used the matching Mama Elephant Heartfelt Greetings Creative Cuts Dies to cut the greeting out and then cut out three more from white adhering them on top of one another for a little dimension. Finally, a few Pretty Pink Posh Seattle Mix Sequins are adhered to the feathers. I love the Heartfelt Wishes Set, it’s so nice to have all of the different languages to say thank you! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thanks so much for visiting today and enjoy what’s left of your Saturday! 🙂

Pals Paper Arts 263 & Card Class Cards!

Another beautiful day here on Long Island and a happy Saturday to you! Yesterday after work I headed over to Scrap-A-Latte for the second night of card class with Michael. We had some Red Robin burgers for dinner with Nicholas, yum! LOL! The class was lots of fun as always, the Friday night crowd is a little rowdier than Thursday. Here is a picture of Melissa, Andrew and I…

RC SAL Card Class Peeps

After class I came home and worked on my card for today and then watched a little TV. Today I’m off to Scrap-A-Latte to hang with Michael while he gives his baby book class and then we are off to Manhattan tonight to stay at Kim’s again. Tomorrow we will be working at The Ink Pad so come on by if you are in the area! Speaking of The Ink Pad, if you take a little detour and go over to see Jenny of at Craft Test Dummies she has a post and a video about her little visit to The Ink Pad and you can see what she picked up!

If you scroll down to the bottom you can see my two cards that I made for card class using Reverse Confetti. I’m loving that little bird on the birthday card!

No on to my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…

PPA 263

I went with a nice simple card using one of my favorite sets from the 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the greeting from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set on a piece of Rich Razzleberry in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and adhered the strip across the lower half of the card with SNAIL. My butterfly is from the Floral Wings Host Stamp Set and is stamped in Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzaz on Solar White 80lb. I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut it out and adhered it to the card with a strip of Foam Tape. A little scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins finishes off the card. I do love that butterfly and since it’s Photopolymer it’s nice and easy to stamp the three different colors. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thank you for taking a little time out of your day to stop by and visit with me! Enjoy your Saturday my friends! 🙂

It’s another beautiful day in Manhattan! Nice and sunny and not too hot. Yesterday I spent the day at The Ink Pad with Michael and Barbara. Towards the end of the day Kathy from The Daily Marker stopped in. She has another coloring challenge coming up in October and I’m going to do my best to participate in it! You can check out her blog HERE! After work Michael and I walked over to Trader Joe’s to pick up some stuff so he could make dinner. We got back to the apartment and had spinach tortellini with pesto and garlic bread with melted mozzarella cheese. It was yummy! Today we are going to head downtown and do a little more wandering! Her are some more pictures from our adventure the other evening.

The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…

Pals Paper Arts 262

This card started off with the need to use a bunch of die cuts! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My panel is a piece of Tip Top Taupe and is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I cut two circles out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Die from Pool Party. The larger one is stamped with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp in Pool Party. I tucked the Simon Says Stamp Calliope Flourish Die cut from Gold Glimmer Paper behind the circle that is adhered with SNAIL to the card. My branch is cut from Silver Glimmer Paper using the Memory Box Branching Out Die and is adhered to the circle with Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. The butterfly is cut from Mint Macaroon and Vellum using the Simon Says Stamp Devonshire and Paulina Dies and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I adhered the other circle to the card with SNAIL. The hello is cut from Solar White 110lb using the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Die. I brushed some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen over it for some added interest. Finally, some Hazel & Ruby The Makery Shine & Sparkle and Green with Envy Sequins complete the card. I love all of the die cuts and the colors are great together! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thank you for stopping by and sharing in my weekend! I always appreciate your visits and wish you a fun Sunday! 🙂

Pals Paper Arts 261 & Manhattan!

Hello there and a happy Sunday to you! I did get my backpack yesterday, it was a joint effort between Andrew and Taylor! Taylor was nice enough to take the train in and drop it off to me! Maggie and I met her at Penn Station and then from there we stopped back at The Ink Pad and dropped it off before heading downtown. I have not been to the 9-11 site in a few years and have never been to the reflection pools. I cannot tell you the overwhelming feeling of sadness that I experienced while Maggie and I were there. The new tower is beautiful and so is the rest of the site, it’s a nice tribute to all of the innocent people that lost their lives because of someone else’s hatred.




We had walked down so we took the Subway back up to The Ink Pad and met up with Michael. The High Line is nearby so we walked along that for a bit, I have some amazing pictures from there and will share those with you tomorrow. After, we had dinner with Michael and then Maggie and I headed up to meet my friend Kim at Bev and Jason’s apartment. From there we took a cab back down to Kim’s. Before we turned in for the evening we spent a little time on the roof deck. Some more cool pictures and I’ll share those later in the week. Today, Maggie and I will head down to The Ink Pad and meet up with Michael. I’m working in the store with him today and my Maggie will head to the airport, she goes back to Cali in the afternoon. A very busy but amazing day!

Today’s card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

I really liked the Lawn Fawn set that I used for last month’s card class so I thought I would break it out again! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Basic Black. I used the We R Memory Keepers Next Level 3D Gemstone Embossing Folder for the background and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam some SNAIL and a little Multi-Purpose Glue. I stamped all of the images from the Lawn Fawn Happy Wedding Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are cut out with the matching Happy Wedding Lawn Cuts Dies and adhered to pieces of Basic Black that were cut out with the Lawn Fawn Small and Large Stitched Circles Lawn Cuts. The circles are then adhered to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in White Hero Arts Embossing Powder on Basic Black and also adhered to the card with Foam Tape. It really is a cute little set and I love those 3D Embossing Folders! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge along with pictures from my day yesterday!

I won’t make a big deal about that fact that it’s Friday even though it’s my favorite day of the week! LOL! Yesterday was another good day! Michael stopped by at work on his way to his Dad’s to say hello. He got to meet some of my work peeps. After work it was off to Scrap-A-Latte for the first night of card class. The Thursday class is always a bit more relaxed and mellow than the Friday’s class so it’s a nice way to see how long it will take to make the cards and if there will be any issues that the students may have. After class I came home and chatted with Heather while I made my card for today. She is leaving for California in two weeks for a little vacation, I’m jealous! Today I have to go to one of the houses for work and then get my haircut after then it’s off to Scrap-A-Latte for night two of class. Tomorrow I’ll be in Manhattan at The Ink Pad with Michael for a little while in the morning and then I’m going to spend some time with Kim. I do love my weekends!

The card that I made last night is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

Today’s card begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Geometric Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam, SNAIL and Multi-Purpose Glue. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies to cut out a piece of So Saffron. The two flags are Melon Mambo and Cucumber Crush. They are adhered behind the circle and then the circle is adhered to the card with more Fun Foam and SNAIL. I stamped the flower from the You’ve Got This Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and the heat embossed it with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Watercolor Paper. To color it in I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and an Aquapainter. It’s cut out with a die from Dies by Dave and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. Finally my greeting, from the Crazy About You Stamp Set, is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a piece of White and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I really do love the way a heat embossed and watercolored image looks and the colors in the Zig Pens is really nice and vibrant! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome Friday! 🙂

Note to self, if you are going to take off Thursday, take off Friday too! LOL! It’s rough to go back to work for one day. It was a busy day but it’s over! I came home and played with my Simon Says Stamp Kit that finally came. Michael stopped by for a bit and then I watched a little HGTV. This morning I’m going to pick up Michael and we are going to head into Manhattan to see Kim and her sister Angie who is in from Missouri. We are also going to take a trip down to the new apartment! Kim is moving in this week! Yay!

My little card that I made with the Kit is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…

PPA 259

The base of the card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Soft Sky and then cut some Silver Foil Sheet with the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders and graduated them. My greeting, sail boat, waves and clouds are all from the Simon Says Stamp Sailing Photopolymer Stamp Set. The greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the background and a thin piece of white which is adhered to the background with Foam Tape. The background is then adhered with SNAIL. I stamped the sail boat on Neenah Solar White 80lb, Pacific Point and Real Red and then cut it out with my Paper Snips and adhered the sails to the boat with Foam Tape. For the waves I heat embossed them on Vellum with some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and cut them out with my Paper Snips. My clouds are heat embossed onto a wooden tag that I got from Michaels, the waves are adhered with Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape and the boat with Foam Tape. A piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord is tied through the top and then the tag is adhered with some more Foam Tape. I love the nautical feel and the wooden tag! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thanks so much for your visit and enjoy your Saturday! 🙂
