Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Shades of Concord & 9th!

Happy Columbus Day! I hope that you are lucky enough to have the day off from work today! I’m happy to report that my Dad is home from the hospital, he came home yesterday. He is feeling much better thanks in part to all of your well wishes. I really can’t thank you all enough for keeping him in your thoughts. you guys are the best peeps ever! I even got to do some fun stuff yesterday! In the morning I took a ride into Manhattan with Heather to drop her brother off at Comic-Con. After that I went with her to look at some used cars, she is trying to find one for her brother. Boy is there a lot of garbage out there! LOL! After that I spent some time with my Dad and then watched a little TV and made my card for today. Felt so good to sit down in the Stampin’ Galley! Today I have some cleaning and other chores to do. What are you up to?

It’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

Shades of Concord & 9th means use any shade of blue or green! For my card is used the Aloha Friend Photopolymer Stamp Set and my MISITI to stamp the dashed strip onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Peacock and Jalapeño to create a background. The fabulous is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum. I used Multi-Matte Medium to adhere it to the card and added a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to complete the card! Simple and fun, and who doesn’t like to be told that they are fabulous?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Shades of Concord & 9th Challenge! My Teammates have made some great cards to inspire you so head on over the BLOG head over and check them out!

Grateful Amethyst Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Grateful Amethyst Leaf – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th!

Happy Thursday peeps! I had a nice day yesterday with Sue. We got a lot accomplished and went out and had a nice lunch. There is always more to do so I’ll be heading back over again some time next week, I do love a productive day! Taylor stopped by in the evening and we had dinner with my Parents and after that some TV, binge watching Arrow at the moment and really liking it! Today I’ll catch up on This is Us and maybe I’ll get to some of the cabinet doors! 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! We featured and Ink Only Challenge for last month so I did a little ink blending on today’s card! One of my all time favorite images is the leaf from the Concord & 9th Lace Leaf Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock. I used the Coordinating Die to cut out the negative from a piece of Masking Paper and used my Mini Ink Blending Tools and some Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Dusty Concord Distress Ink to color it in. After I removed the Mask I added the panel to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine is spattered over the card and while that dried I cut out the grateful from a piece of Gold Glitter Card and adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I love the purple and blue hues in the gold leaf and never underestimate the effect of a little ink spatter!

I hope that you like the card for my October Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Ink Only!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Ink Only!

Another cool morning here on Long Island, but it’s sort of refreshing sleeping with the windows open and enjoying a little fresh air. I had a nice busy day yesterday, I cleaned and did some laundry in the morning, ran a few errands and spoke to my friend Kim. Jim came by around 4:30 and we headed down to Jones Beach to go for a walk. A nice four mile walk, it’s amazing how good you feel after a little exercise! We stopped on the way home and picked up dinner and then finished off the evening with some TV. A pretty great Friday! I think that this morning I will try and get a few more cabinet doors done! 😀

It’s time for a new challenge and I have the pleasure of sharing my card with you for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge

I do love to do some stamping! To create my card I stamped the hydrangea from the Concord & 9th Petals & Palettes Photopolymer Stamp Set onto a Post-it and cut it out with my scissors. My card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock is place into my MISTI and I stamped the flowers in Grape Soda and then just the edges in Peacock using the mask that I cut out. My greeting is from the same set and is stamped in the same colors. The background needed a little something so I took a stylus and pressed it into the ink pads to create my dots! A nice somewhat simple one layer card that would be easy to make multiples of with the MISTI!

I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Embossing Challenge!

Welcome Pineapple – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Welcome Pineapple – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

A chilly happy Friday to you from Keen Lake, PA! It went down to 40 degrees here last night, I’m not ready for that! LOL! I did have a nice day yesterday, Jim and I ran some errands in the morning and fixed the screen door. Then it was off to the lake to sit and enjoy, lots off people there to chat with. We had a late dinner and then it was off to the fire to end the evening. It really is so nice here, just peaceful and very relaxing, just what I needed! 😀

I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! It’s our last Friday to feature a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the cool Pineapple Perfection Stamps and Dies!

I started my card by stamping the pineapple from the Pineapple Perfection Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Licorice and then using the fill-in images, stamping them in Fresh Lavender, Freshly Cut Grass, Moonstone and Ballet Slippers using my Mini MISTI. The greeting is stamped in Black Licorice and then I cut them out using the Coordinating Dies. Onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I adhered a piece of paper from the Aloha Fill-In Patterned Paper Pack. All that was left to do was to adhere the pineapple and greeting to the card! I love that nice big pineapple and the fill-in images make it so easy to “color” it in!

I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Concord & 9th! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of talented Teammate’s projects! I thank you so much for stopping by, I’ll see you back here on Monday!! Enjoy the rest of your Friday! 🙂

Sprinkled Sundae – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Sprinkled Sundae – Concord & 9th Guest Designer for Feature Friday!

Hi peeps and a happy Friday to you all! I spent the morning yesterday doing more purging! Three bags of trash and a bag of shredding! I think that I will do more of that today, feels so good! Last night was Thirsty Thursday and a good time as always! What’s on your agenda for today?! 😀

I have the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Concord & 9th this month along with the rest of the fabulous Design Team over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! For the next two Friday’s we will be featuring a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the Fun Here’s the Scoop Stamps and Dies!

One of my friends always complains that there are no greetings inside my cards, so I decided that I’d make one with the image inside! To start my card I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 5″ x10″ and folded it in half. The outside front panel is stamped with the Sprinkles Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp using my MISTI and Merman and Sunflower Ink. I then place the Here’s the Scoop Die on the front and ran it through my Big Shot to cut out the negative from the front panel. Back into my MISTI so that I could line up the sundae from the Here’s the Scoop Set and stamp it in Memento Tuxedo Black. It’s colored in with Copics to coordinate with the sprinkles! My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 28lb Vellum and that is adhered to the inside of the front of the card with Vellum Adhesive. Love the little peekaboo of the fun sundae from the front of the card through the Vellum! There, now there is something even better than a greeting inside!

For the next three Friday’s we will be featuring a new product from the August Release! This week it’s the awesome Happy Balloons Stamps and Dies!

Three of the balloons from the Happy Balloons Photopolymer Stamp Set are heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto 65lb Vellum. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. They are adhered to each other and my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Multi-Matte Medium that is strategically placed! My greeting is also heat embossed in Gold onto a piece of Solar White 110lb that is cut out with the banner die from the set. I added some Gold Thread to the balloons and then adhered the greeting banner to the card. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins add a bit more sparkle and the card is done! Isn’t that a fun stamp set and I love the that the overlapped balloons sort of make a heart!

As soon as I saw the set I knew that it would become a favorite! We all make a lot of Thank You cards and this one is great for quick ones! My cards are all note card size with bases of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background onto the fronts with Peacock and Jalapeño Ink. Next I stamped the greetings using the Concord & 9th Serious Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the same colors with my Mini MISTI. The greetings are then adhered to pieces of 29lb Vellum and Fun Foam is used to attach them to my card bases. I could have been done but I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins for a little sparkle! I also stamped the #seriously onto each of the backs of the envelopes! I was going to use these myself but I think that I will tie a piece of ribbon around them and give them to a friend as a little gift! I can always make some more!

Magic Unicorn – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Magic Unicorn – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Another productive day yesterday! I got a lot of things checked off my to-do list and enjoyed the weather. It’s supposed to be rainy here this morning but clear up by the afternoon. Last night was a relaxing TV and read a book kind of night. Today I have some more around the house things to do and then when the weather clears up I think I will go and take a ride somewhere! 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog at 11:00AM today. Be sure and stop by there too! It’s Concord & 9th’s 2 year anniversary this month so they will have lots of fun things panned! Look forward to celebrating along with them!

My card starts with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I heat embossed the Concord & 9th Sunshine Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Soft Sky and trimmed it to cover the front of the card. The unicorn is from the Concord & 9th Unicorn Awesomeness Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored in the horn, mane, tail and hooves with Copics and used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out. My clouds are cut out with another one of the Dies from the Unicorn Set. I adhered the back one with E-Z Runner and the top one with 3M Foam Tape. The unicorn is added and the greeting, also from the Unicorn Set is stamped in the lower left. That unicorn really is a great image and I especially like him with the sun rays and clouds! I hope that you like the card for my August Solo Post for the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Embossing!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Embossing!

Well, that was a nice Saturday! I got a few cards made in the morning and then in afternoon I headed over to my Brother’s for Tristan’s Birthday party. Lots of family and friends and of course my little Daniel. He rode all around the backyard in his Ford F-150 driving it like he’s had his license for years! LOL! Tristan was happy like she always is and wanted to be with me most of the time! She is starting to talk and will be walking very soon! I’ll share some pictures when my Brother posts them. I got to play photographer yesterday so I didn’t take any with my iPhone. This morning I think I’m going to try and tackle my top on my car. It leaked fluid out of the front and I can’t put it down anymore. My only source of happiness! LOL! 😀

Today I have the pleasure of sharing my card with you for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Challenge

I do love some heat embossing and that’s all I did! To create my background I used the Concord & 9th Oh Hello Turnabout Photopolymer Stamp with my MISTI. For each turn I stamped in Versa-Mark and heat embossed with Hero Arts Gold, Brass, Platinum and Copper Embossing Powder. It’s then trimmed to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. My main greeting, also from the same stamp set is heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum. I folded the edges around the background and adhered it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Just three Pretty Pink Posh Silver, Gold and Rose Gold Sequins finish the card! I do love all of the metallics with the Oh Hello Turnabout, makes for a fun and interesting background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Embossing Challenge! We hope that you will play along with us and enter your card in the gallery over on the BLOG! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Golden Hugs – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Golden Hugs – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hi all! I hope that you had a happy and safe Independence Day! I started my day yesterday by picking up my friend Chantal and heading over to Long Beach. Her Granddaughter takes surfing lessons so we went to watch. While we were there we saw a whole bunch of Dolphins in the water just off the beach. Who knew that we had Dolphins in the waters here?! You can see the kids in the water…

Before heading back Chantal and I had a nice brunch at a local restaurant. It was great to get to spend some time with her! I dropped her off and then stopped by my house before heading over to Stephanie’s for a BBQ. There were a bunch of my peeps there and we had a really nice time! Today I have some crafting to do and a lot of cleaning. 😀

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog at 11:00AM today. Be sure and stop by there too! I did another card with a bunch of layers! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the Concord & 9th Select-A-Size Edge Dies to cut a piece of Lobster and Gold Mirror Card. On the Lobster I heat embossed the hugs from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. The two layers are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love the edge dies and the nice simple hugs greeting! I hope that you like my card for my July Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! Don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
