SIP Challenge 92 – Color Inspiration!

SIP Challenge 92 – Color Inspiration!

What started out to be a rainy drizzly morning brightened up by the afternoon. Renee and I kept busy at the Store, she had her Monthly Memories class and I worked on some projects. After work I went straight over to see Heather. We ran a few errands and then had dinner. After that we watched a little TV. Today I have so many more projects to work on at the Store and then Jim is coming over this evening to make dinner. We will work on more of the crafty project too! Should be a very good day! 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I wanted to make a nice simple card, these colors are some of my favorites! I started out by stamping the blossom from the Concord & 9th Brushed Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Wet Cement, Passion Fruit, Grape Soda, Charcoal and Soft Pool using my Mini MISTI. The greeting is stamped in Charcoal and the dots in Wet Cement. I adhered the panel to a piece of Soft Sky and then to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The delicate die cut is cut from Kraft using the Concord & 9th Blossom Die and it’s adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Sparkling Clear Sequins give the card a little sparkle! I do love that flower, so deconstructed. I also like that the Die doesn’t match up perfectly! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Inspiration Challenge! Make sure and stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards! We hope to see yours in the gallery! Thanks for dropping by today! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 90 – Shaker Card!

SIP Challenge 90 – Shaker Card!

Ugh! SNOW! They keep changing the totals but we are to get between 5 to 18 inches! That’s way too much! I know that I keep on whining but I’m over Winter already! Hopefully this will be the last hurrah and we will be able to move on to warmer temps! It was another nice day at the Store! My friend Arnise stopped by and Angie was in too. I got some things accomplished and also brought my stuff home, the Store will be closed today. I’ll get to craft in the Stampin’ Galley! I had a quick dinner with my Parents when I got home, chatted with Heather for a bit and then Jim came by. We watched YouTube videos and just hung out. A nice relaxing evening with a friend, who could ask for anything more?!

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we ask you to join us and make a shaker card…

I do love to make a shaker and it’s been a while since I have. I started out by cutting a piece of Solar White 80lb with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts and using both sides to add some Fish Tank and Merman Ink to another piece of Solar White 80lb with my Mini Ink Blending Tool. All of my images are from the Sunny Studio Froggy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them all in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics. They are then cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I adhered the Lilly pad to my background and stamped the ripples in Fish Tank. The cattails and flower are then added and the sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. To make my frame I cut out a piece of Deep Blue with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts and adhered a piece of Acetate to back with Scor-Tape. A single layer of 3M Foam Tape is added and then I sprinkled some Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix Sequins onto the background and adhered the frame over it. The frog and the flies are adhered with more 3M Foam Tape onto the Acetate and then the whole thing is adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I love that super happy little frog and the flies, so cute! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Shaker Card Challenge!

SIP Challenge 89 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 89 – A Sketch!

Yup, still cold here! I did have a very fun day in Manhattan yesterday! Ella and I had a nice visit and took a little trip to the Apple Store to get her iPhone fixed. From there I headed down to The Ink Pad to see my friend Anna! We got caught up and I had some Dirty Bird for lunch, delicious. I took the 3:01 train back out to the Island and got to spend some time with my Brother, Erika, Daniel and Tristan. We had cake for my Dad’s birthday which was on the 1st. I stopped home quick and then went over to Heather’s so that we could take a drive to see our friends Patti and Tom and the kids. We had a nice time and quick ride home. Today I’m back at the Store with lots of things to catch up on! 😀

It’s time now for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I do love a new release from Lawn Fawn and I haven’t really played with the Bicycle Built for You Set yet so that’s what I used on today’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a strip of Lawn Fawn Rudolph 12×12 Paper and a thin strip of Black Licorice down the left side. To create my little scene I cut out a piece of Mermaid with the Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Circles Stackables, I also used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders to cut out a piece of Noble Fir and the Lawn Fawn Road Border to cut out a piece of Black Licorice and Solar White 80lb. The Zig Zag Circles are used again to cut the edges off of them and they are lined them with the Mermaid Circle to adhere them all together. I used a some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhere the circle to the card. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Bicycle Built for You Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored them in with Copics and cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. They are adhered to the card with 3D Foam Squares. All that was left to do was to stamp the greeting in the lower right! I do like the set and all of the little pieces that you can change up! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards including this month’s Guest Designer Sue Plote! We hope that you will share your take on the sketch by adding it to the gallery!

SIP Challenge 88 – Anything But a Card!

SIP Challenge 88 – Anything But a Card!

Is it just me or do Monday’s seem to last a little longer than other days of the week?! I had a good day despite that! Renee and I worked on projects as always. My friend Arnise stopped by to get some Lawn Fawn goodies and I left a little early. When I got home I took a little nap before dinner and then had a few errands to run before settling in for a smidge of TV before bed. Today more projects and planning, never a dull moment at the Store! 😀

Now on to today’s post, it’s time for a new challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper

I made a fun little box using Lawn Fawn’s new Fancy Box Lawn Cuts. The box is cut from Moonstone using the die, folded and assembled with some Scor-Tape. To decorate the top I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and the Lawn Fawn Little Picket Fence Border dies to cut out two pieces of Crisp Green for the hillsides and a piece of Solar White 80lb for the fence. I adhered them to each other with E-Z Runner, trimmed them to fit on the lid of the box, stamped my greeting and adhered them to lid. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Jet Black. I colored them in with my Copics and cut them out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I added some Gelly Roll Stardust Glitter Pen to the candles and a few 3D Foam Squares adhere the images to the lid and the box is done! I think this would make a nice way to give a gift card or a little prezzie! I hope that you like my Design Team project for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Anything But a Card Challenge!

SIP Challenge 87 – Kindness!

SIP Challenge 87 – Kindness!

Made it through another Monday! LOL! The Store was fun with Renee’s Home Decor Class. I got to see my friends Melissa, Debbie and Marianne, we had a good laugh! After work I came home and had dinner with my Parent’s and the chatted with my friend Greg in Indiana for a while. So good to get all caught up! Today, more projects and crafty fun! 😀

Now it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge…

Kindness, something we really need more of! The idea for today’s card started off with the world map and evolved from there. The world map is from the Concord & 9th Map Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Hero Arts Green Apple Hybrid Ink onto a piece of Moonstone that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Stackables Lawn Cuts. I added some Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to the image and heat embossed it. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of my images and greeting are from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the envelopes in Wet Cement and the hearts in Soft Pink, Pale Tomato and Crimson Hybrid. The greeting is stamped in Onyx Black. I adhered the world map piece with Fun Foam and Tombo Extreme and the card is done! I love that Map Love Set, it’s retired but I still have one left in the Store! The Acts of Kindness set is also a favorite and I’ll have those back in soon! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! The rest of the Team has some great inspiration for you over on the BLOG so head on over and take a look!

SIP Challenge 86 – Colors!

SIP Challenge 86 – Colors!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I have to admit that I’m a big romantic at heart! A lot of people think that Valentine’s Day is just a made up Holiday but I think that it’s the perfect day to show someone that you care a lot about how much they mean to you! Not that you should have to wait for Valentine’s Day to do that, you should make it point to do it as often as possible! If we all focused more on love and less on hate what a wonderful world this would be! And to that I had a lovely day at the Store yesterday. Renee and I do manage to have a good time in between all of the work and planning! When I got home I had a quick dinner with my Parents and then went out with Heather to Stop & Shop and then back to her house. My friend Louis stopped by to pick up some cards for his loved ones and I got to see George for a bit before I left. Renee is off today so I will be manning the Store. Stop by and show me some love if you are in the area! 😀

Today we have a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge for you, this time it’s colors…

I haven’t watercolored in a while and I wanted to so that’s what I did on today’s card. I started by heat embossing the rose and stem from the Altenew Sketchy Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of Arches 140lb Cold Press Watercolor Paper. To add my color I used my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors and #2 and #4 Silver Paint Brushes. I used my Heat Tool to dry the layers in between adding color and adhered the panel to a background of Black. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Onyx Black. All that was left to do was to adhered the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I do love that rose image and I’m so happy with the way the shading turned out! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge! We hope to see your card in the gallery after you stop by the BLOG for some more inspiration from the rest of the Team! Thanks so much for visiting! Have a romantic Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 85 – Love!

SIP Challenge 85 – Love!

What a nice Monday that turned out to be! The weather was pleasant, it won’t be later in the week, and the Store was busy! Renee had her Christmas Card Club Class and there were some new ladies in it! A very funny and group indeed! I got some projects completed and still have a ton more to do! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then came home and continued the purge! Feels so good to get rid of things and have less clutter! Can’t wait to do some more tonight! Renee is off from the Store today and my friend Sue will be coming by to spend some time with me! 😀

Tuesday and we have a new Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge for you…

Ahh… love! And just in time for Valentine’s Day! I have been a little obsessed with stamped backgrounds lately and today I have another one! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black. To create my background I used the Altenew Painted Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. The flowers are stamped in Jet Back, Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Deep Iris and the leaves in Frayed Leaf Crisp Inks. I trimmed the panel to 5 1/4 by 4. My greeting is from the Altenew Super Script 2 Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder along with the hearts from the set onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I cut the bottom at an angle and folded the top over the stamped background, the whole thing is adhered with E-Z Runner. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins finish the card! I really love that Painted Flowers Set, it’s one of the more forgiving layering sets and I think it creates a very nice background! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Love Challenge!

SIP Challenge 84 – Tic-Tac-Toe from LeAnne!

SIP Challenge 84 – Tic-Tac-Toe from LeAnne!

Now that was a busy Monday! I got my Lawn Fawn Pre-Order all tallied up and sent off. Renee and I worked on ideas for upcoming fun at the Stores. I got lots accomplished too thanks to Renee, she has the ability to reel me in! LOL! After work I had dinner with my Parent’s and Taylor and did a little laundry. Today, more planning! Oh, and some snow later, grrr! 😀

Today is Tuesday so that means it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

I got some new goodies from Sunny Studios and I used one of my personal faves on today’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Moonstone Blue and across the lower half is a piece of Photoplay This Guy 12×12 Paper. I also cut a piece of the This Guy Paper out with the Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts to create a frame. My “rug” is a piece of Authentique 12×12 Paper that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. The images and greeting are from the Sunny Studios That Sucks Photopolymer Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. I stamped the vacuum in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. Inside the frame I adhered a piece of Chinese Red and heat embossed the sentiment in hero Arts White Embossing Powder with the end of the sentiment also heat embossed, in the lower right of the card. The “suck” is die cut from Black and adhered with Multi-Matte Medium. I added some Hemptique Black & White Baker’s Twine for my cord and adhered the vacuum with 3D Foam Squares. A few Pretty Pink Posh 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins and three Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars complete the card! I really do love the little sad vacuum and the sentiment is great!

SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

Well, we definitely got that Nor’easter yesterday! Crazy winds and lots of rain last night. There were power lines down and all sorts of other storm related things happening. I was glad to be in the house, binge watching This is Us! Completely addicted to the show, I’m up to episode 9! The earlier part of yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was busy. Renee had her Home Decor Class, lots of people coming in to paint their wood pieces. I managed to get a few things done and ran to the Post Office to mail out some crafty goodness, always a highlight of the day! Today, more projects to do! Love my job! 😀

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

The first thing I did to create my card was to stamp the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Soft Brown and the heart and love from the Concord & 9th Tree Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Crimson Hybrid using my Mini MISTI onto Ivory 110lb, I triple stamped the tree ring and double stamped the heart and love. They are trimmed out with my Scissors and put aside. To my card base of Ivory 110lb I adhered a piece of Carta Bella Beach Day Surf Shop 12×12 Paper. Much the Renee’s delight I inked the edges with Soft Brown using my Mini Ink Blending Tool! (she likes to ink everything!) The paper is then adhered, a little askew, to the base. I used Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the tree ring and heart to the card. I slipped a piece of Chinese Red in between. It needed a little subtle sparkle so I added some Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry and Sand Sequins and the card is finished! We all know how I love a little woodgrain and that’s why I love that Paper and Tree Ring Stamp! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and get inspired by the rest of the Team and add your card to the gallery! Thank you for stopping by! Have a nice Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 82 – Natural Elements!

SIP Challenge 82 – Natural Elements!

Still not feeling great! It has been over a week, I’m over the stuffy head! I was only at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store in the morning, I left around 2:00 to go over and work on some things with my friend Sue. I got to see my friend Buddy too! He’s a 60+ pound lap dog! LOL! So lovable and cute though! After I left Sue’s I came home and had dinner with my Parent’s and then it was time for TV once again. I wish I had more energy when I get home, time go cold! 😀

I’m having another big SALE over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Web Store! You can take 30% off anything in the CHA Clearance section and 40% off all products in the 2016 Holiday collection! The sale is on through Wednesday! The codes are CHAFIN17 for the 30% and CHAHOLFIN17 for the 40%!

I did make a quick card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge and that’s what I have to share with you today…

Ahh… Natural Elements, we all know how I enjoy a little woodgrain! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black. I wanted a piece of newsprint and couldn’t find one so I went to good old Google and printed a sheet out from there. It’s cut out with the Hero Arts Nesting Postage Stamp Infinity Dies and adhered to the background with E-Z Runner. My tag is a piece of Kraft and I stamped the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Stamp on it in Hero Arts Soft Brown Ink. A piece of May Arts Natural Twine is tied through the top and the tag is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My greeting and all of the other images are from the January My Monthly Hero Kit. I heat embossed the greeting onto the bottom of the tag with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. My images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, the rose and bow in Red Royal and the leaves in Green Hills and Forever Green. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and used a Craft Knife to cut slits in the jar so I could pass the stem through. Everything except for the bow is adhered with Tombo Dot Runner. I used a 3D Foam Square to adhered the bow. A little dot of Multi-Matte Medium holds the twine in place and the card is done! I have said it before, I love the way flowers look against a woodgrain background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Natural Elements Challenge! Go on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for coming by to see what I have been up! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
