SIP Challenge 49 – Flowers!

Now that I get to spend everyday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store inside Scrap-A-Latte I can’t even say anything bad about Monday! What could make the day better? Why getting to drive there and back with the top down in the car listening to some unnecessarily loud music! Have you heard the new Justin Timberlake song Can’t Stop the Feeling? It’s the perfect happy upbeat song for nice rides in the car! Who doesn’t like a pocket full of sunshine?! I got lots accomplished at work but was bummed when I found that the second half of my Lawn Fawn order didn’t come. I discoveredΒ that it was too big to ship through the Post Office so it went UPS and that added an extra day. Guess there is a lot in that box! We had some new customers come by the store and I even got to talk tech with one of the husbands! πŸ˜€ I had a little dinner when I got home and talked with my parents and neighbor for a while before coming inside and making my card for today. This morning I’ll get the Lawn Fawn order all sorted out and make some samples! Yay!!

That card that I made last night… it’s for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

SIP Challenge 49 Flowers 800

Ahh… flowers… who doesn’t like flowers?! My card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. That fun gold frame is cut out from a piece of Gold Mirror Card (yes, I use a lot of it!) using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Ovals Lawn Cuts. I adhered it to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Those pretty flowers in the center are from the Altenew Vintage Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flowers in Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Inks and the leaves in Morning Frost, Evening Gray and Moon Rock Crisp Inks using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and arranged on the card. Some Press ‘n Seal picked them up, keeping them exactly where I placed them, while I added Tombo Dot Runner and Foam Tape to the back. They are then placed back on the card, pressed in place and the Press ‘n Seal removed. For the greeting I stamped one of the sentiments from the Altenew Label Love Photopolymer Stamp Set in Moon Rock and cut it out with my Scissors. A little Foam Tape adhered that to the top of the card. Finally, a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins are added for a little sparkle! I LOVE that Altenew Ink, such good coverage and really easy to clean off your stamps too! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Don’t forget to pay a visit to the BLOG and see what my talented Team has come up with to inspire you! Add your card to gallery so that you can share with us! Thank you so much for coming by to see what I’ve been up to today! Have a thoroughly phenomenal Tuesday! πŸ™‚

  2. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Justin!!! You’re happiness is infectious! Have a happy day! : )

  3. I am so sorry that I didn’t buy the Altenew flower stamp and die sets yesterday when I was in the store. Dreamt about them last night. : ) Just read you have a miniature schnauzer. We do too. Please post a photo!

    1. It was so nice to meet you and your husband Jillian! Thank you for stopping by! I sent you an email yesterday about the stamps! Yes, I have Winston! He’s getting a haircut later this week, I’ll post a picture after that! He looks like an Ewok right now! Enjoy the beautiful day! πŸ™‚

  4. I’m envious of your new fun πŸ™‚ Sounds like the perfect job! And I do love that new song!

    1. Thanks Teresa!! I’m such a happy boy! Yes, the song is just so happy and upbeat! πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Justin:

    Back at home again! I can’t believe you stamped, colored and die cut those flowers! When I saw the card before reading your explanation I thought you cut the flowers from a magazine! Honestly, you did an amazing job with them. I am so anxious for you to get your on line sales going. Is there any chance that you will carry Simon Says stamps also? I envy you getting to work at something you love. I worked my entire life and the only job I loved was when I was a manager at the newspaper. The rest of the jobs were just drudgery. I’m so dang happy for you. You have yourself a terrific Tuesday! Love and hugs, XXOO

    1. Hello Grace!
      The stamping, coloring and cutting was fun! The Altenew Inks are so nice! I will have the online store set up as soon as I get enough product in! Simon doesn’t wholesale, which is a bummer! This really is the best job ever! I’m very lucky that I get to do this and I want it to ba as successful as I can possibly make it! Hope that you had a good day! Today is gorgeous here!! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  6. You are living the life! I predict the new JT song will be THE song of this summer. It’s killer-diller!

    1. I definitely an Ann! I agree with you about the song! It is killer-diller! πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Justin,
    Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! LOVE IT!
    Have a great day! Hugs, Donna πŸ™‚

  8. that card with the beautiful coloring and gold frame is absolutely stunning. I love everything about the Altenew stamps. I especially like the fact your choice of color for the foliage is perfect; a green would have totally subdued the pop of floral color.

    1. Thank you Debbie! Altenew is definitely one of my favorite companies! Their stamps and inks are amazing! I didn’t think that I would like the Grays as much as I do and I agree with you! πŸ™‚

  9. BEAUTIFUL CARD. I’m looking at my stamp set Label Love and trying to figure out what you used from this set on your card. Help!

  10. Beautiful card, Justin. I love all the elements. The gray leaves are outside the box for me, but work so well with this card. So glad the weather is better finally so you can drive with the top down. It’s great your job is something you love so much. With your creativity, enthusiasm, knowledge and drive, I’m sure it will be a huge success.

    1. Thank you HJ! I have been getting better about using other colors than what is expected! They are stamps and can be any color in the world!! I am really enjoying the weather!! A ride in the card just makes the day so much better!! The store is great and I couldn’t be happier! I hope that you are right!! Hope you had a great day! πŸ™‚
