SIP Challenge 96 – CAS Wedding!

Hey there! It’s to be rainy and chilly again for the next few days, but will warm up at the weekend! Another fun Monday spent a the Store. Poor Renee, she gets to listen to me whine sometimes and I appreciate that. I did get a few kits made of the Wedding Card that I posted a few weeks ago. I would love to kit up more cards but it’s not easy unless they are limited in stamping! I had another quiet evening at home after a quick dinner with my folks. I haven’t been myself lately, lots going on. But this all will pass, hopefully soon. 😀

It’s time today for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

Ahh, clean and simple, loving those kind of cards lately! My card today is definitely not a difficult one to make! Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I stamped my images and greeting with my Mini MISTI. The flowers are from the Altenew Remember This Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the large flower in Lava Rock and then masked it and stamped the smaller flowers and leaves. After removing the mask I added two more layers to the large flower with Moon Rock and Evening Gray. My greeting is from the Altenew Celebrations Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Lava Rock. I was going to add a few sequins but actually like the card just the way it is! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! There are some excellent projects over on the BLOG from the rest of the Design Team so make sure you take a look! We would love to see your project in the gallery too! Thank you for taking some time to come by and see me today! Have a great Tuesday! 🙂

So, I had a very nice day in Manhattan yesterday! I went and saw my friend Jim in the morning and got to meet his grandson Oliver. They are heading out to Montana to do some fishing today! That should be fun. From there I headed down to The Ink Pad where I got to see Brianna. We had a nice long chat and I browsed around the store. Such a fun place to be! After The Ink Pad I went and wandered around the city for a bit. I ended up having a really late lunch/early dinner of pizza at Zesty’s up on 94th and 3rd before heading back to the garage to get my car and make my way home. It only took me 35 minutes to get in in the morning but over 2 hours to get home! Oh, traffic! I acquired a really bad headache in the car and took a two hour nap when I did finally get home. Still had the headache after that so I went and made my card for today and then watched a little TV. Today Renee has the Scrap Happy Sisters at the store for a class and I want to get my last card for next month’s card class finished and my newsletter started!

Sometime cards just randomly pop into my head and that’s how today’s one came about. I stared off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and covered the front with a piece of Black 110lb. My background is a piece of Tim Holtz Woodgrain Card that I adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The circle is a piece of Black 110lb that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. That too is adhered with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The Orchids are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Large Orchid Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Soft Vanilla and Soft Lilac using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts and adhered to the circle with E-Z Runner. The rest of the images are from the Hero Arts Hipster at Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the Mason jar mugs in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto Vellum, the diamond in Gold, also on Vellum, and stamped the camera and mustache in Hero Arts Intense Black. All are cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts except for the diamond which I cut out with my Scissors. The mustache and diamond are adhered to the mugs with Dot Runner and then to the card with Foam Tape and Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Hero Arts Congrats Stamp & Cut Photopolymer Stamp Set, I cut it from Gold Mirror Card and adhered it to a piece of Vellum with Multi-Matte Medium and then to the card with the same. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Sparkling Clear and Charcoal Sequins finish off the card with a little extra shine! I love the mix of floral and masculine elements on the card! I think that it makes for fun and unexpected Wedding card! I hope that you like today’s card! Thank you for sharing in my day! Have a simply wonderful Sunday! 🙂

It was definitely a little nicer here yesterday! Warmer and sunny all day! We are supposed to get up into the 70’s over the weekend finally! My little trip to the Dr. with Brian yesterday morning was a lengthy one! We got there at 8:15 and by the time that he was finished it was 11:15! I had a nice little nap in the car so it was all good! We stopped by the deli on the way home and I had lunch with him and Kim. Once I got back to my house I managed to get a little crafting done. Heather came and got me at 4:30 so we could make a quick run to BJ’s. I had dinner with my parent’s and then headed over to Heather’s. We had a nice evening and watched some YouTube videos and a few movie trailers. Today I need to get my laundry done! It’s been three weeks! I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that I have enough clothes for three weeks to wear or to wash! LOL!

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. This month we have a Tic-Tac-Toe board! Love Tic-Tac-Toe, you get a really nice variation in the projects that way!

OSAT Tic-Tac-Toe

If you have arrived here from my friend Dena’s blog welcome! I love her projects!! I have a card and a little tag for you today so let’s get to it!

First up is my card. I used Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock for the base and covered that in a piece of Desert Storm 80lb. My frame is a piece of Woodgrain Card Stock from Ellen Hutson that I cut out with the Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Madison Avenue Creative Cuts. A generous coating of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is added to it and then it’s adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. My flowers are Solar White 80lb and Cucumber Crush that I cut out with The Ton Petal Cut Peonies Dies. They are all coated with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then adhered to the card. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed on Vellum with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and adhered to the card with Tombo Vellum Adhesive. The card needed a little more sparkle so I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins! I love that Woodgrain Card Stock, I have had it for a long time but just recently “found” it!

OSAT March 2016 Blog Hop - Card-WM

No on to the coordinating tag! The front is cut from the same Woodgrain Card Stock using the Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Madison Avenue Creative Cuts along with a piece of Fun Foam. The set also comes with a solid tag without the circle cutout and that’s what I used to cut out the Acetate and the backing from another piece of Desert Storm 80lb. I assembled the layers adhering them together with Scor-Tape filling in the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins. My greeting is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on a piece of Cucumber Crush that is cut out with another die form the same set. I adhered it to the card with Foam Tape and tied a piece of Lawn Fawn Green Sparkle Lawn Trimmings String though the top.

SIP Challenge 41 – Weddings!

And we successfully made it through another Monday! It was rainy here in the early part of the day but the sun did manage to come out for a little bit and then later on it got really windy! Such odd weather! I had another pretty low key day. I ran and picked up Brian in the morning from dropping off his car at Jeep, we went back to his house for a bagel and then I came home. Some crafty time with Andrea via FaceTime passed away a good part of the afternoon and Taylor came by to binge watch Netflix with her eyes closed for while! LOL! Brian called and asked if I would run him back over to get the truck so I did. Some dinner with parents and then a little TV to finish off the day. Oh, I did manage to get into a bit of a cleaning frenzy in the Stampin’ Galley! It looks a lot better! I always find “new” things too! Do you do that? LOL!

Today I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog with the rest of the talented Team for this week’s challenge…

SIP Challenge 41 Weddings 800

Ahh, I don’t know why I like a wedding card as much as I do! Remember last year when I went through my wedding card marathon?! Today I stared my card with a base of Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The background is a piece of Solar White 80lb that I stamped in Versa-Mark with the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background Stamp and heat embossed some Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My flowers and leaves are from the Clearly Besotted Sketched Blooms and they are heat embossed with the same Silver Pearl on Vellum and cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I used a little Multi-Matte Medium strategically placed behind them to adhere them to the card. For the greeting I used the Simon Says Stamp On Edge Love You Die cut from a piece of Solar White 110lb and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I resisted the temptation to add some sequins, it wasn’t easy! LOL! I do love that the card is basically white, I think that it has a nice simple elegant look to it! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Get a head start on your wedding cards and share them with us in the gallery by stopping by the BLOG! Thank you so much for coming by! Have a tantalizing Tuesday! 🙂

SIP Challenge 40 – Tic-Tac-Toe from Lisa!

SIP Challenge 40 – Tic-Tac-Toe from Lisa!

Well, the snow is all gone! It was a nice day yesterday, not warm but sunny. I spent most of the day deciding what to do, don’t you just hate that?! I FaceTimed with Andrea, wished her a Happy Birthday and we crafted for a bit. Taylor and Kiera stopped by, they watched a little TV and I went over to my parent’s to eat dinner. When I got back home I watched some TV and crafted a bit more. I said that it was going to be a relaxing day. Tonight I’m going to the movies with Andrew to see Allegiant. That should be fun!

Today I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog for this week’s challenge… a Tic-Tac-Toe from Lisa…

SIP 40 Tic-Tac-Toe Lisa 800

I went directly across the middle! Sequins and gold and I was sold! LOL! My card base is a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of paper from the Recollections Midnight Magic 6×6 Pad and a also a piece of Acetate. The heart is cut out from the gold paper with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Stackables. I adhered the Acetate to the back of the gold paper with E-Z Runner and then added Foam Tape to the back of that. Some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Gold and Ballerina Pink Sequins are placed inside and a piece of Black 110lb is adhered to the back of that. The panel is then attached to the card base with more E-Z Runner. All of the images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Happy Wedding Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used my Copics to color them in and the coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out. The greeting is stamped in Onyx Black along with the music notes, the hearts in Simon Says Stamp Rosie Cheeks Ink, it’s then cut out with the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners Lawn Cuts. I adhered all of the pieces to the card with Foam Tape. Some Uni-ball Gold Gel Pen colors in the hearts on the cake and a little Glossy Accents added to the champagne glasses gives them a little shine! I love that little wedding set and the new banners dies are perfect for so many of the Lawn Sentiments! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the talented Design Team has come up with to inspire you and add your card to the gallery!

Can You Case It? 71

It was chilly here again yesterday but sunny! It did warm up a bit later in the day, enough to take a ride to Scrap-A-Latte with the top down! In the morning I crafted for a bit and then Taylor came by in the afternoon after she got out of work, that’s when we went over to see Renee. We also had some Blaze Pizza for Lunch. That has become one of my favorite places to get pizza! You can make your own with like 40 different toppings and it $7.95 per pie, and it’s delicious! We came home and puttered around the house before running out to Michaels to pick up some necessities! LOL! The rest of night was spent crafting and chatting. A nice way to spend a Saturday! This morning I’m out to breakfast with Sam and Kim, it’s been too long and we need to catch up!

It’s Sunday and that means that it’s time for another Can You Case It challenge, This week we are bidding a fond farewell to the soon to be Vintage 2013-2015 In-Colors…

CYCI #71

 

Yes, I was the one who threw in the gold! LOL! I really am going to miss Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Pistachio Pudding. The panel has a piece of PinkFresh Studio Mint to Peach Ombre Airmail Washi Tape just for Michael! 😛 The greeting and cake are from the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set, I promise that I will stop using it soon! LOL! I stamped the greeting in Crisp Cantaloupe and quickly coated it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set it. If you do it fast enough it will stick! The neat little card is the Reverse Confetti Mini Circle Garland Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts die cut from some Gold Foil Sheet. I adhered it to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. My cake is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Crisp Cantaloupe and cut out with my Paper Snips. The panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I really am very obsessed with that Stamp Set, I just love it! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Can You Case It color challenge! Head on over to the blog and see what the rest of the design team have made and enter your project in the gallery! I thank you for coming by today and I wish you a creatively amazing Sunday! 🙂

Embellished Gold & Black Wedding

All around yesterday was a pretty good day! Work was very nice, all of the people in my department had lunch together for my birthday and they decorated my desk too. I came home and Heather stopped by for a little bit. My friends Brian and Kim had a little get together for me last night. Andrew, Danielle, Taylor, and my friend Stephanie joined us, we had some food and drinks, and Andrew brought his Cards Against Humanity game over. If you have never played this game and are not easily offended, I highly recommend it. We spent about 3 hours gasping and hysterically laughing at the extremely creative cards that they’ve come up with. I say it all the time, but I am quite lucky to have the friends that I have. Sometimes all you need is a small get together to make a birthday perfect. To make a great day even better, all of your birthday wishes brought a big smile to my face. Thank you so much for your kind words!! 🙂

*We interrupt this program for a special message.*

Hi folks, Andrew here! Unfortunately, I tried to type up a surprise message for Justin yesterday and WordPress decided not to post it. No worries, though, I’m here today to amend that situation! LOL! I just wanted to wish Justin the happiest of birthdays and say how lucky I am to have him in my life and call him a friend. When everyone else fails to be there, Justin is without a doubt by my side if I need him and I can’t thank him enough for all he does for me. I’m glad that he enjoyed his birthday, and I’m glad I was there to enjoy it with him. LOL! Alright, I’ll keep this short, but especially after WordPress screwed up yesterday (GR!), I had to make sure I hijacked his blog for a birthday wish. Ha ha! Enjoy your day, everyone! 🙂

*Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.*

The card that I have for you today is one that my friend Danielle had asked me to make for her. Her and her boyfriend are attending a friend’s wedding today. I have to tell you, it feels much easier to take make a card for someone when you know the person. That being said, here’s what I came up with…

The card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock and my background is a piece of Basic Black. I used some Sticky Strip to adhere a length of the Gold Sequin Trim around the back and then adhered the card to the base with Fast Fuse Adhesive. The two images are from the Embellished Events Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. The greeting is from the “Vintage” Follow My Heart Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Kraft Card Stock and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits; some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it to the card. Wedding cards always need a little more bling, so I adhered some Basic Jewels Rhinestones to the champagne flutes. A nice, simple, elegant wedding card with just the right amount of sparkle! I really like the way the champagne flutes look like actual glasses when they are embossed on the vellum. I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and if you haven’t tried heat embossing on vellum, I don’t know what else to do. LOL! Thanks for stopping by, and have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

Creation Station Blog Tour – Weddings

creation station header

It’s Sunday already! But it’s a good Sunday because it’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour! It’s our fourth one already, can you believe it?! I’m hoping that you have been along for the previous tours and if so welcome back! If this is your first time with us I think you will enjoy your little visit! If you are following the Tour you have arrived here from the very clever Jennifer Downey. Always fun projects! This time I focused on the Weddings part of our list. I didn’t take as many pictures as usual because the card and tag use a lot of the same elements. Off we go!

My first project is a card. The finished size is 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ so the leaves can hang over and it still fits in a standard envelope. I used colors that I thought would be nice for a summer evening wedding. The card starts off with a base of Hello Honey Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Starburst Framelits to cut out a piece of Hello Honey to serve as true backing for my flower. Before we get to the flowers I used the Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die to cut out some Sahara Sand for the leaves.

Creation Station Card-Tag Leaves

The flower is stamped twice in Blackberry Bliss using the Bloom for You Stamp. I punched them out with the Fun Flower Punch and curled the petals on the top one. I stamped it again in Hello Honey and used the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the middle and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Creation Station Card-Tag 1Creation Station Card-Tag 2

My greeting is from the Lovely Labels Stamp Set, I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss and punched it out with the Artisan Label Punch. A piece of Hello Honey is flagged and adhered behind it. A fun very non-traditional wedding card using some of our great new In-Colors!

Creation Station Card

Next up is my tag. It uses most of the same elements as the card. The tag is created using the Angled Tag Topper Punch and Hello Honey Card Stock. Another piece of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack makes the background.

Creation Station Card-Tag 3

For the tag I used a greeting from the A Round Array Stamp Set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The Bitty Banners Framelits make the piece being the greeting and I tied the tag to one of our Mini Muslin Bags. I think this would make a great little favor for any occasion!

Creation Station Tag 1

Creation Station Tag 2

Last I have a little bonus project. I thought that a pillow box would make a nice favor too. I used the “Vintage” Pillow Box Bigz Die cut out a piece of Hello Honey. The band around the middle is more of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the same greeting as on the card but my flowers are from the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set and are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. A cute fun favor that wouldn’t be too difficult to make a bunch of!

A CASE from Shelli

Good morning everyone! It’s the weekend and I couldn’t be happier! I have some projects to finish and peeps to see, it’s going to be a good time! Today’s post is a CASE from So Shelli. Last month there were a bunch of projects posted by Sara Douglass and I fell in love with this one. I thought it would be the perfect Wedding surprise for my brother and Erika on their special day. I only change some minor details but kept it mostly the same. You can see the original post here.

Where to begin! I cut out some First Edition Designer Series Paper with the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die, I think it was three pieces all together. I used some Sticky Strip and a Jumbo Sticky round to form the rosette. A piece of Pool Party is cut out with the Oval Accents Bigz Clear Die and embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that are two of the scalloped pieces from the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die cut from Wisteria Wonder and stamped with the Distressed Dots Background Stam in Wisteria Wonder. I used the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlits Dies to cut out a piece of Elegant Eggplant and cut one in half and put that on top of the other pieces. A piece of Elegant Eggplant is flagged on both ends and mounted to that with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is stamped from the Forever With You Stamp Set in Elegant Eggplant on Pool Party. The butterfly is cut from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die in Pool Party and stamped in Pool Party with the Distressed Dots Background Stamp. I punched a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and pierced two holes in it and threaded some Pool Party Bakers Twine through it before adhered it to the butterfly. The greeting on the Very Vanilla flag is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and the “is” is stamped on a piece of Pool Party that is punched out with the Small Heart Punch. A piece of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon is tied just underneath it. The picture is backed with a piece of Pool Party and they are all adhered to dowels with Sticky Strip and hot glue. The jar has a piece of Pool Party that was cut out using the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die. I wrapped a piece of First Edition DSP around it, punched another piece os Silver Glimmer Paper out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and tied a piece of Linen Thread around it. To keep everything in place I filled the jar with small river rocks.

Erika and Jason both loved their little surprise waiting for them on their table and I hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you so much for spending some time with me today, I appreciate your visiting and love to read your comments! I hope that you all enjoy your Saturday! 🙂

Happy Anniversary

Today is my parent’s wedding anniversary. I think they have been together for 43 years! I like to make cards specific to a persons taste. My mom loves the color purple and butterflies. That made designing this card simple. I used my Butterfly Layering Punch from EK Tools and punched out two different shades of purple. I also used the CuttleBug Swirls Embossing Folder for the background. The stamps are from studio g. Unfortunately I didn’t have a happy anniversary stamp so I used two different ones that convey the same message. My mom loved the card and the fact that I used her favorite color and that I used butterflies which she commented on as soon as she opened it! I hope that they have many more happy years together!
