Bloom ‘n Butterfly

Hello my peeps and happy Saturday to you! I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see my friends Jim and Diane and hopefully meet up with my friend Kim to have some lunch! It’s been way too long since I’ve seen her! Yesterday was a quiet day at the Store. I think everyone was still trying to recover from the snow! Renee, Angie and I worked on projects and Renee got her new Ranger goodies put away. After work I came home and straightened up some more, ran to Target and then my friend Jim came by and we went out and had Pizza for dinner. A fun end to a good day! ๐Ÿ˜€

I wanted to make a simple card for today, but then decided that I wanted to do a little masking, not that that doesn’t mean that it’s not simple! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the butterflies from the the Reverse Confetti Butterfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lawn Fawn Merman, Peacock, Fresh Lavender and Sugarplum Inks masking them as I went up the right side. When my stamping was finished I cut the right edge off with my Scissors. I decided that I wanted to add something to the inside for a change so I stamped the leaves from the Reverse Confetti Blooms ‘n Buds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass and Noble Fir Ink. They needed something to ground them so I ran a piece of Plum Glitter Tape along the inside edge of the leaves. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Sea Breeze, Orchid and Amethyst Sequins and the card is done! I love the fun unexpected cut off edge and the surprise of the leaves and glitter tape inside! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you for coming by! Have a superb Saturday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Paper Craft Crew 212

Weather, better yesterday. The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was good like it always is. I started making the haunted house prototype, now that I have an idea I can make the final one and get that going. Have to start working on the cards for next month’s card class too! See, it’s not all crafty fun all the time! LOL! After work I got to see my little Daniel for a bit and then Heather came by and got me and we ran to BJ’s. From there we stopped at George’s and then I stopped home to get my car and went over to Heather’s for some coffee and Heather time! Today, more projects need to get finished! Focus Justin! ๐Ÿ˜›

So, it’s Wednesday, I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for a color challenge…


I like a little color challenge with some leeway! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. Fo my background I used the Reverse Confetti Office Edges Dies on a piece of Putty and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner. The tag is a piece of Gold Mirror Card that I cut out with the Topped Off Tag Confetti Cuts and then I used the Woodgrain Confetti Cuts to emboss it. On the top is a piece of Lemon Sorbet die cut with the Hang Ups Too Confetti Cuts. I adhered the tag to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My coffee cup is form the Reverse Confetti Caffeinated Cups Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Emerald Green and Cup O Joe. I used the coordinating Caffeinated Cups Confetti Cuts to cut the pieces out. For the funky flowers I usedย the Blooms ‘N Buds Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Butter Bar, Emerald Green, Tide Pool and Navy and then cut them out with the Coordinating Blooms ‘N Buds Confetti Cuts. All of the stamped images are adhered to the tag with 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner. My greeting is from the Be A Barista Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Dark Molasses with the right side flagged. Some 3D Foam Squares adhere it to the tag and a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Peacock and Sea Breeze Sequins complete the card! I have quite a bit of Reverse Confetti but don’t get to use it as much as I would like to! I love those funky flowers and the way the woodgrain looks on the gold tag! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Color Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your in the gallery. Thank you for coming by to see what I’m up to today! Enjoy your Wednesday peeps! ๐Ÿ™‚

Scrap-A-Latte February Class Cards!

Yup, we had nice weather here yesterday! Made it all the way up to 58 degrees! I had a nice time at the swim meet with Brian yesterday morning, it was about 94 degrees in the pool area, it felt like Summer! We went to the diner after and had breakfast and then Brian dropped me back at the house. I finally finished my laundry that I started on Thursday! LOL! Louis came by in the afternoon and he was having iPhone issues so I went to the Apple Store with him and they told him the same thing they told me… restore the phone! He hung out at my house while his pictures backed up. He left around 7:00 so I went over to the ‘rents and had a sandwich for dinner and then came home and crafted for a bit. This morning I’m off to Manhattan to see my friends Jon and Mary and then I’ll see Kim for a little bit before coming home. Hopefully the weather will be nice again!

Today I have the cards that we made at this month’s class at Scrap-A-Latte. We used Reverse Confetti Stamps and Dies and some Hero Arts Ink. My favorite is the shaker! I hope that you enjoy the cards as much as the class did! Thank you for coming by to see them and have a super Sunday! ๐Ÿ™‚
