SIP Challenge 173 – Plaid!

SIP Challenge 173 – Plaid!

Hello my friends! How was Monday? Mine was not great. I had a small boulder hit my windshield and put a giant circle like crack right in the middle. That’s going to be a pretty penny to replace. I tried to call the company who’s truck it came off of and they didn’t even answer the phone. It’s always something. Tristan was a beast for the first few minutes when I got there but she settled down eventually. Daniel was an angel as always. I got a caught up on a few things while Tristan napped and then did a little laundry when I got home. Taylor stopped by and we ran to Target. Back with the kiddos this morning! πŸ˜€

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

I went super simple, just stamping! To create my background I used the Concord & 9th Happy Plaids Photopolymer Stamp Set and some Ballet Slippers and Minty Fresh Ink. I stamped the pattern with a block and added it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The snowflake is stamped in Ballet Slippers and the greeting in Minty Fresh, they are from the Concord & 9th Snow Flurry Photopolymer Stamp Set, using my Mini MISTI so I could stamp the greeting a few times to make it a little darker. I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out and then added it to the card with 3M Foam Tape. That’s it! Simple and very non traditional colors, my fave! LOL! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Plaid Challenge! There is more inspiration over on the BLOG and we hope that you will play along with us! Thanks for visiting with me today! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! πŸ™‚

Monday done! How did you all fare?! I did pretty good. Daniel was good as always and Tristan wasn’t the little she devil that she has become! LOL! It was rainy here most of the day yesterday but should be nice today. I snuck into Manhattan on Saturday to go and see my friend Kim and then went to October Fest at the Firehouse with Kim and Brian. Saturday was the first day that I wore pants since April!! I’m not liking that fact! It’s getting chilly and that means that my least favorite season is coming! πŸ˜€

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

My card is super simple! I used the Concord & 9th Snowflake Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp and some Soft Pool Ink with my MISTI to create my background. I stamped each turn twice to make the ink a little more intense. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in WOW! Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Vellum. To cut it out I used the Concord & 9th Lovely Blossoms Dies. I adhered my background to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and then added the sentiment with teeny tiny pieces of 3M Foam Tape. All that was left was to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins. Like I said, simple but the heat embossing gives it a little oomph! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery!

SIP Challenge 171 – Fall Florals!

SIP Challenge 171 – Fall Florals!

Hey there everyone! I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend! Mine was great up in PA! We all had a blast with deck parties and dinners. We really made sure that the technical last weekend for the season was a great one! We also left early yesterday and really didn’t hit much traffic on the way home which is always the best way to finish a long weekend. I’m off to see the kiddos today, what are you up to?! πŸ˜€

I will have two posts for you today and my first one is for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

I haven’t used my COPICS in a long time and I just felt like coloring so I stamped the large floral spray from the Concord & 9th Grateful for Everything Photopolymer Stamp Set in Amalgam Ink and set about doing some really simple COPIC coloring. Once I was finished I used the Coordinating Die to cut it out. My card base is 8″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half. The sentiment is from the Concord & 9th Just Because Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Amalgam Ink onto a piece of Desert Storm 80lb and attached it to my card base with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. My floral spray is added with the same. To give it a little extra I used my Stylus and some Forever Green Ink to add dots around the image. I love the simplicity and the bright pop of the flowers! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG to see the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery! Thanks so much for stopping buy this morning! I’ll be back before lunch with my Design Team post for the new Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th challenge! I hope that you’ll come back for that!

SIP Challenge 170 – Colors!

Hello everyone! I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and that your week is off to a good start! I can’t believe that it’s October already! It’s been cooler here but not cool enough to put away the shorts just yet! I’ll be off to PA at some point this week for Columbus Day weekend. Last weekend up there for the season until next Spring. Boy did this Summer fly by! πŸ˜€

Another Tuesday another challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog…

I pulled out one of the little sets from Concord & 9th’s September release to make my card. I started by stamping the joyful from the Merry & Bright Photopolymer Stamp Set in Juice Box and then fussy cut it. Onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped it again in Minty Fresh to help with my placement of the pine branches. They are stamped in Minty Fresh and Noble Fir. I then adhered the fussy cut joyful with 3M Foam Tape and used my Stylus and the Juice Box Ink to add the little dots. Summer simple card with lots of white space!

SIP Challenge 169 – Background Stamps!

Another Monday done! I had a nice time with the kiddos and Tristan was a delight! That’s not always the case lately! Terrible two’s are no joke! LOL! I took part in the crafty garage sale on Saturday and managed to send a lot of crafty goodness to new homes! I also got to see some peeps from the store and that was really nice! I’m still cleaning and organizing the Stampin’ Galley but it’s coming along nicely! πŸ˜€

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

I got to play with some of the goodies from this month’s Concord & 9th release! I started my card by stamping pieces from the Concord & 9th Cozy Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Lake Shores and Rosie Cheeks Ink using my MISTI onto some Solar White 80lb. That is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My greeting is cut from a piece of Glitter Paper from the Concord & 9th Neutrals Glitter Pack and two pieces of Solar White 110lb Card Stock using the Concord & 9th Merry & Bright Die. I used Multi-Purpose Spray to adhere them together and then added it to the card. A sprinkling of Shimmer Pool Gems from Little Things by Lucy finish off the card. I love the nice soft colors and big bold sentiment! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Background Stamps Challenge!

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! πŸ˜€

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!

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! πŸ˜€

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 withΒ 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! πŸ™‚

SIP Challenge 158 – Christmas in July!

SIP Challenge 158 – Christmas in July!

Hello peeps! Just popping in with a quick post for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge. The actual Stamp, Ink, Paper site is having major issues this morning so the post won’t be up for a little while. But the Design Team has all of their posts up and I’ll link to them below! Now for this week’s challenge badge…

I used some old and new sets from Concord & 9th for my card. To start I heat embossed the lightbulb from the Concord & 9th Shine On Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of Gold Metallic 27lb Vellum. The top of the bulb is also heat embossed in Silver onto a piece of Ionized Curious Metallic. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. Onto a piece of Solar White 80lb I heat embossed my greeting from the Concord & 9th Ornamental Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder using my Mini MISTI so that I could do it twice to make it a little brighter. The background with the greeting is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock. I added the bulb with 3M Foam Tape and then a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card. I do love the simplicity and metallic elements on the card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Once the BLOG is up I hope that you will check out the rest of the Team’s cards and share yours with us in the gallery!

SIP Challenge 147 – Color It!

SIP Challenge 147 – Color It!

Hello strangers!! It’s been way too long! I have been keeping busy with lots of different things. My Mojo is still MIA, I don’t know what happened! I guess after 5 years of making a card a day my creativity wore a little thin. The thing I miss the most is talking to all of you! I have been to Manhattan a few times to see some of my peeps. Jim and I went in a few weeks ago and stopped by The Ink Pad and then went an had Indian Food with my friend Kim. That was fun! I’m also watching Daniel and Tristan twice a week now which is great! I love getting to spend time with them! I also need to go and see about getting the top in my car fixed, it’s convertible season and I miss putting down the roof! Today is also Jim’s Birthday! Happy Birthday Jim!! πŸ˜€

We have a fun Color It challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog this week…

My favorite kind of cards to make are ones with large images that can just be stamped! Concord & 9th has a great new set in their April release and I used it to make a set of cards! I started by cutting my card bases from Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stack and using my Stamparatus! I love the fact that it has more than one plate and that they are removable. It’s especially handy when you are stamping layering stamps! I used the Concord & 9th Painted Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set. The outline and greeting are stamped in Black Licorice. I stamped the leaves in JalapeΓ±o and Noble Fir. Each of the flowers are stamped in two in colors. Ballet Slippers and Peachy Keen, Minty Fresh and Merman, Sunflower and Carrot, and finally Grape Soda and Juice Box. I added the spatters in the lighter of the two colors around the rose and the cards are done! Now I have a nice set of cards to give to someone that will work for many different occasions! I hope that you like my Design Team Cards for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color It Challenge! The is more inspiration over on the BLOG so be sure to check it out and share your card with us in the gallery! It’s so nice to get to share with you again and I really appreciate you stopping by! Have a terrific Tuesday everyone! πŸ™‚

SIP Challenge 144 – Birthday!

SIP Challenge 144 – Birthday!

Hello! I finally had a little burst of Mojo the other day! It has been elusive as of late! I have also been busy working on a new project that I will get to share with you soon. A little business venture! I have been keeping myself busy helping out with some computer stuff for friends. There really hasn’t been much else going on. I did go into Manhattan to see some friends last weekend but other than that not much else has been happening! We had another three inches of snow yesterday but thankfully it’s all gone! Now I would like it if Spring could finally get it’s act together! LOL! πŸ˜€

I have a simple stamped card to share with you today for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I started by stamping the banner and sentiment from the Concord & 9th Banners & Blooms Photopolymer Stamp Set in Jet Black onto a piece of Solar White 80lb using my Mini MISTI. The rest of the images are from the same set and are also stamped in Jet Black. To color them in I used my Copics, doing some very simple shading just to give them a little depth. All that was left to do was to adhere the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Nice and simple and very easy to make quick duplicates of! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Birthday Challenge! Check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG and share your creation with us in the gallery!
