Teal Woodgrain Create

I had a nice day yesterday! Kim and I went over to breakfast with Brian and Kim. My friend Sam was there and had some great news to share with everyone, she is pregnant with twins! We had a very nice time catching up and Brian made a delicious breakfast as always! After that Kim and I picked up my friend Maureen and we headed over to the Walt Whitman mall. Kim stopped at Apple and got a new Apple TV and we stopped by Lush to say hi to Kiera and Dan. From there it was off to Monty’s for some lunch. On the way home we stopped and got some Starbucks and then just came back to my house and relaxed for a bit. Last night Kim and I watched Jurassic World and then Exodus – Gods and Kings. This morning we are going to meet Heather for breakfast and then Kim will go back to Manhattan later on.

I made a quick card last night, just a simple one that would be good to send to a crafty friend! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. Across the bottom is a piece of Scotch Black Glitter Washi Tape. I used the Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves Craft Die to cut out a piece of Recollections Teal Glitter Paper. A piece of paper from the Crate Paper Flea Market 6×6 Paper Pad is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Ovals and adhered over the leaves and to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The butterfly is a piece of Black 110lb that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Leanna Butterfly, it’s adhered to the oval with a Glue Dot. My greeting is another piece of Black 110lb that I die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Create Craft Die and adhered that to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and Fun Foam. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Onyx and Ocean Spray Sequins finish the card. I love the teal and black together and that teal woodgrain on the paper is really neat too! I hope that you enjoyed todays card! Thank you very much for visiting with me today! Have an awesome Sunday! 🙂

Fab Friday 72 & the London Eye

Hello and a happy Friday to you! Brian and I did a lot of wandering around London yesterday. Our first stop was the London Eye, that huge ferris wheel that lets you see all of London on a nice day and it was a very nice day indeed! We actually got lucky and when we went to get on line the guy there moved us over to the quick one and we were on in five minutes. You really can see so much from up there and it takes about 30 minutes to go all the round. The first thing that you notice is Big Ben…

Next up is Charing Cross Station…

London Eye Kings Cross

When we left we walked across Westminster Bridge and got this nice photo of the Eye…

Thames London Eye

I’ll have some more pictures for you tomorrow!

Today is a Fab Friday and we have a sketch for you this time…

Fab Friday 72

I stayed very true to the sketch, I haven’t used a doily in really long time! LOL! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Blushing Bride. A Tea Lace Paper Doily is adhered to the card with SNAIL and across that is a piece of EK Success Wood Sheet and a strip of Adhesive Cork. I cut a piece of the Crate Paper Kiss Kiss 6×6 Paper Pad with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles and adhered that to the doily with Foam Tape. For the heart I inked a piece of Solar White 80lb with some Simon Says Stamp Teeny Bikini Ink using a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. It’s cut out with the Memory Box Stitched Hearts Layers Dies and adhered to the card with some more Foam Tape. I stamped the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Locking Hearts Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Khaki Ink on the bottom right of the card and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink Iridescent and Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish the card. I really like the softness of the pink with the woodgrain, it makes for a nice contrast! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch challenge! Head on over to the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s projects and enter your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting today and I wish you all a very good Friday! 🙂

OSAT Blog Hop – Happy Father’s Day

OSAT Header

Hello everyone, happy Thursday to you! Today I’m participating in the fourth 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. The focus this month is Father’s Day 0r Masculine Cards! I had some fun using some different elements and new products! If you have arrived here from Ginger Pelfrey’s blog, welcome! Ginger had some amazing stuff didn’t she?! I have two cards for you today so let’s get to them!

My first card begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, I covered the entire card front with a piece of Early Espresso. The background is a piece of denim that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles and used some Stick-It Adhesive Sheet to adhere it to a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. I used a piece of Fun Foam and SNAIL to adhere it to the card. My tag is a piece of EK Success Wood Adhesive Wood Sheet, I cut it out with the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Die and adhered it to another piece of Neenah. I used the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Open Book Deer Die to cut out a piece of Early Espresso and Adhesive Cork Sheet. They are slightly offset and adhered to the tag. I tied a piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord though the top and adhered the tag to the card with more Fun Foam and SNAIL. The greeting is from one of the Paper Pumpkin Kits and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and adhered to the tag with Ranger Multi-Purpose Glue. I love all of the texture from the denim and wood. I think this would make a great birthday or father’s day card, don’t you?!

OSAT FD Hop - Wood Deer-WM

My second card is nice and clean but features a great new embossing folder! The base of this is the same as the first. My background is a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb that embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Next Level Woven Embossing Folder. It’s adhered to a piece of Fun Foam with SNAIL and also to the card base. I heat embossed the greeting and the anchor from the Guy Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black. The anchor is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Small Tags Die and some Hemptique Black Hemp Cord is tied though the top. The greeting and tag are adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I used some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium to adhere the twine to the card. I absolutely love that embossing folder and the cool 3D effect!
