SIP Challenge 20 – Colors!

Another busy day yesterday. I did wake up with a massive headache yesterday morning and by the time it went away it was 9:30 so I got a late start. After I puttered around in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit I got myself together and ran over to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee. After, I stopped home to check the mail, I knew that I had some goodies coming, before I headed over to Sue’s to play with her Brother Scan-n-Cut. Now there is a fun machine! I got four 8 1/2 x 11 pages of stamped images cut out in about 10 minutes! It’s super simple to use too! Thanks for the lesson Sue! From there I came home and had some dinner with my parents and then Taylor stopped by. I wanted to go to Target and A.C. Moore but when I went outside I was greeted by a little warning on the screen in my car telling me that my right front tire was flat! Ugh! I need new tires but not right now! LOL! My dad changed the tire for me and Taylor took me to do my errands. When I got back I headed into the Stampin’ Galley to work on a few more projects before calling it a day. Today I’m going to hang a Scrap-A-Latte for the day, stop by and say hi if you are in the area! Oh, the goodies that I arrived yesterday… some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins to feed the serious addiction that I have and my October Hero Arts Kit! Here’s a peek…

Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Haul

My Monthly Hero Oct Kit

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means, it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

SIP Color Challenge 20 800

Some fun colors from Andrea! I wanted to use a new set that I got from Simon to make a fun background so that’s just what I did! The base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Jumbo Stripes Photopolymer Stamp Set along with some Early Espresso, Blushing Bride and Dew Drop Brilliance Galaxy Gold Pigment Ink to create my plaid background on a piece of Solar White 80lb. It covers the entire card front and is adhered with SNAIL. Next up are two snowflakes cut from a piece of Paper from the Recollections Midnight Magic 6×6 Paper Pad with the Simon Says Stamp Kinley Snowflake Die. I adhered them to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. My greeting is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Early Espresso using the Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Winter Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used the Simon Says Stamp Hearts and Spoons Dies to cut it out and adhered it to the card with Foam Tape. Finally, I adhered a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins with Multi-Matte Medium to complete the card! I do love that plaid background and being able to use the Jumbo Stripes Set to make it in any color is pretty neat! I hope that you enjoyed my very non-traditional Holiday Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Color Challenge! Head over to the blog and see what the rest of the team has for your inspiration and enter your card in the gallery! Thanks for stopping by to see me today! Have a lovely Tuesday! πŸ™‚

Sounds like a fun day on tap for you. It’s been nice here the last few days or so but rain’s coming in today. No complaints though, we’ve had a really nice Fall! Enjoy your day. πŸ˜‰

    1. Hello Karen!
      Thanks so much! The sequins are fun and I agree, you can never have too many sequins! LOL! I had a good day yesterday! We are to have rain today too but we have had lovely weather since June so no complaining for me either! Have a great day! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. Hey Justin, I am curious about the Hero monthly kit. Can you give me info on it? Looks interesting.

    1. I’m curious about the Hero Arts kits also – Please do tell us where we can check it out. Thanks.

      1. The Hero Arts Kit is available at the begging of the month from It sold out very quickly and it took forever to get mine but I’m glad that I got it. Keep an eye out for next month’s Grace!

  5. Oh I like this very much. Very modern and holiday-ish. I can picture a dress . . . a plaid taffeta skirt with a black velvet top. I think I was about 10 years old. πŸ™‚
    Have a good day. Costo or BJ’s is good for tires with a guarantee!

    1. Thank you Nancy! Yes, it does have a plaid skirt feel to it! Sounds like a nice outfit! Hope that you enjoyed your day! I was looking into those places for tires! I’ll let you know where I go! πŸ™‚

  8. Nice new stash of goodies! Lucky you to get that hero arts kit, I waited to long and now it is sold old, but that’s because I kept repeating to myself “You do NOT need another Christmas set”! Love your card, the non-traditional colors, and how cool you stamped the background yourself. Looks just like patterned paper!

    1. Thanks Sandy! I also did not need another Christmas set but I’m glad that I got the Hero kit, the poinsettias are so cool! Glad that you enjoyed the card and I had fun making the background! πŸ™‚
