Paper Players 211 & The Creative Blog Hop!

Posted on

Hello peeps! It’s so nice to have off on Monday isn’t it?! I am thoroughly enjoying my weekend and hope that you are too. I went into Manhattan last night for some dinner at my friends Bev and Jason’s apartment. They are the people that my friend Kim watches the dogs for when they go away for the weekend. Always a good time but a late night! Andrew retrieved me from the train station and brought me home. Such a good guy. Today I have been asked to be part of a fun little blog hop called the Creative Blog Hop. I’m honored that my friend Sandy Mathis has tagged me to participate! You may have heard about it already, but if not, it is a venue for crafters of all kinds to talk about ourselves a bit and hopefully make a few new friends along the way. Sandy has a great blog called Stamp with Sandy. She posts regularly and is quite the talented stamper and a very good friend! You can see her post for the Creative Blog Tour here and then make sure and take a look at the rest of her posts!

The hop asks us to answer four questions about ourselves so here goes!

What am I working on now?

I’m always working on lots of things at the same time! I have my weekly Design Team commitments, Blog Tours and regular posts. I’m actually starting to get interested in Mixed Media and got some supplies on Saturday so I’m going to give that a try. What doesn’t kill us makes us more creative right?!?!

How does my work differ from others?

I think that we all have a certain style of card making that we love, mine is collage. I love to see how I can get different elements to work together and look cohesive. I also enjoy lots of other styles and try to be as varied in my projects as I can. We have to keep it interesting not only for our wonderful readers but for ourselves too!

Why do I create what I do?

I started making cards as a creative outlet. I think that paper crafting is a great way to express yourself and it helps me relax. My creativity has turned into a loyal following of blog readers that I have gotten to know over the past few years and now can call them friends. So I guess the best reason that I can think of why I do what I do is to stay connected to my peeps!

How does my creative process work?

I spend a lot of time looking on Pinterest and SplitCoast. I get inspiration form the world around me too. I can be walking down the street in Manhattan and see a sign or building and that can inspire me with colors or shapes. I also am lucky in that I have a photographic memory., I can sometimes put a card together on the train on the way home or while I’m sitting at my desk at work all in my head.

Now, I am honored to get to tag two of my favorite paper crafters in the Creative Blog Hop!

Carolyn

Hi, my name is Carolyn. I’m Mother of 2 gorgeous girls and I’ve been married for 29 years. I have a passion for paper. I started Scrapbooking in 2001 and Cardmaking followed in 2002 and quickly took over. I’ve been teaching ever since. I joined Stampin Up in May 2009 and absolutely love the products and the friendships I’m making.

Carolyn and I have become good friends even though she lives on the other side of the world! We often FaceTime and I have even been lucky enough to have received some TimTams in the mail! Love my little Aussie!

So now next Monday Wendy and Carolyn will select some more people to introduce you to so make sure that you check in with them next week!

Now on to our regularly scheduled programming! Even though it doesn’t feel like Monday it is! That’s a good thing! So if it’s Monday that means it’s time for the Paper Players challenge. This week it’s a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from Nance…

Paper Players #211

I went with the first row down. Sometimes you just need a bright, cheerful birthday card so that what I did. The base of the card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock, I rounded the corners on it and the next layer of Pumpkin Pie with the Project Life Corner Rounder. On top of the Pumpkin Pie I have a piece of Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper that I cut out with the Project Life Card and Labels Framelits. I ran it through the Big Shot again using the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the notch on the left side. My cupcake is from the Cupcake Party Stamp Set and is stamped in Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo and punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch. I mounted it to a piece of Tempting Turquoise that I punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. It’s tucked into the notch and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and I again used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits to cut it out, Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it in place too. I felt it needed a little something more so I used my Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color some Basic Jewels Pearls. I put some tiny ones on the cupcake and then “scattered” some around the card. Like I said, bright , cheery and simple, a great card to liven up someones birthday, don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed my Creative Blog Hop post and Paper Players card for today! I’m very lucky to have you all come by and visit with me, I appreciate it and it makes my days much better! Thank you and enjoy your Monday! :-)

Freshly Made Sketches 151

Posted on

It’s so nice when Sunday rolls around and you realize that tomorrow is not a work Monday! Wee! I had a lovely day yesterday, I took the advice of a friend and sat outside with my coffee and laptop and relaxed and enjoyed the outdoors in the morning. Around 12:30 Sandy stopped by and we had some lunch. She brought a yummy Italian hero with her from a deli near her house. After lunch we headed to the Animal Shelter in Babylon to see if they had any news about her cat Oreo. He went missing at the beginning of August, but we still hope that he will turn up. The lady at the shelter told us that her cat was gone for a year! She said that she thinks that he was on vacation in the Hamptons! LOL! I hope that Oreo does come back. After the shelter we stopped at a scrapbook store and had nice chat with the lady that worked there. She asked if I we might be interested in teaching card classes, now that would be fun! I’ll keep you posted as to what becomes of that. I ran to Michaels when I got home and picked up some supplies, I want to start working on multimedia projects, I’ll keep you posted on them too! For dinner, I met my friend Maureen at Friday’s and then we ran to Walmart. Not an overly exciting day but I enjoyed it!

The post that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This week’s sketch is provided by their Guest Designer Kim…

Freshly Made Sketches #151

I sort of took a little creative license with the sketch, I have wanted to use a new stamp set that I got and this seemed to work for it! My card begins with a base of Daffodil Delight Card Stock. The background is a piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed with my favorite, the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged on some Soft Suede to make the grain stand out. All of the images are from the Yee Haw! Photopolymer Stamp Set, and yes they are all cut out with my Paper Snips, including the barb wire! I stamped them all in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with my Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. The barb wire is stamped on Smoky Slate. The lasso with the greeting are adhered to the card with SNAIL and all of the other elements are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the Yee Haw! Stamp Set, so many fun western images and I think it goes perfect with the Woodgrain EF! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday! :-)

Can You Case It? 34

Posted on

That was a good Friday! I managed to escape the office for 3 hours! I had to go to one of our other locations and set up an iPad and mount for someone in a wheelchair with Cerebral Palsy. She was quite happy with her new gadget. After that I stopped by the Apple store to exchange a keyboard that stopped working. They are so nice there, never any issues just a smile and a thank you. To top it off they released us at 3:30! I came home and took a nap! LOL! I only got about 4 hours of sleep the night before so I needed it! Taylor came by with her new car and we went to Target to get her some floor mats. I found a new Glade Plug-in that smells amazing, it’s called Woodside Library. Here is their description, “Quiet and comfortable, a window seat at the town library provides a perfect nesting place on a crisp fall day. Cozy up, settle in and enjoy the scent of rich oak and vintage leather-bound volumes”. It has a classically clean scent and it’s not floral which is a nice change! I’m going to spend some time crafting today and then who knows. What are your plans for the weekend?

A while back my friend Eva had asked me if I would be a guest designer on her challenge blog called Can You CaseIt? I said that I would love to and so that’s what today’s card is for. Here is this week’s sketch…

CYCI 34

Nice and simple don’t you think? I started my card with a base of Pool Party Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack and I backed it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss. A strip of Pool Party is embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and goes down the right side. For my greeting I stamped a stamp from the Hi There Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and backed it with another piece of Blackberry Bliss. The feathers are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set and are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut out with the Feathers Framelits. A Subtles Designer Button is adhered with a Glue Dot on top of the bottom of the feathers. I used the sequins die that I got the other day to cut out some Blackberry Bliss and put some Crystal Effects on the and adhered them to the left of the greeting. I really love the colors together, cheery without being too bright and you all know how much I love the feathers! So there you have my Guest Designer card for the Can You Case It? sketch challenge for this week. Stop by the blog and see what the rest of the design team has done and show them some love by uploading one of your cards to the gallery! I hope that you enjoyed the card and I thank you for checking in! Have a super Saturday my friends! :-)

Fab Friday 49

Posted on

Hi everyone! It’s Friday!! You know how I feel about my Friday! I get to run some errands at work today too! It’s going to be a great Friday! Yesterday was as good as I made it! LOL! I came home and saw little Daniel for a bit. He just wants to go go go! I think that he will be walking in no time. He is so cute I can’t stand it! Last night was very good, it was Hunger Games – Catching Fire movie night with Andrew. I knew that he wouldn’t like the ending, it kind of leaves you hanging and he likes to have closure. But he had to see the movie and he did really like it! I told him only a few months until part one of the third book comes out. I will have to make sure that if we watch a series they are all available on iTunes from now on! I said it’s something to look forward to and now I’m guaranteed that we will see that one in the theater! :-)

Good news! It’s a Fab Friday challenge day too! This time around we have a sketch for you…

Fab Fri 49 8-29-2014

Fun and simple, I stayed really true to the sketch too! My card base for today’s card is Sahara Sand Card Stock and across the bottom is a strip of Crushed Curry that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two flagged strips are Basic Black and Tangerine Tango. I wrapped a piece of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the card and tied it in a bow on the left side. The main panel is a piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Basic Gray. My three happy little pumpkins are from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangerine Tango and Memento Tuxedo Black. The Fun Fall Framelits cut them out and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. After I put the card together I realized that I forgot a greeting! Thankfully the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set made it easy for me to stamp the greeting on the panel even though it was already adhered to the card! A fun fall card and the pumpkins are just the cutest aren’t they?! There is my Design Team card for this week’s Fab Friday sketch challenge and I hope that you enjoyed it! Head on over to the blog and see what my talented teammates have come up with to inspire you! Make sure that you take a little time and add your card to the gallery so we can see what you do! Thank you so much for coming by to visit with me today! I hope that your Friday is a very good one! :-)

Mojo 360 & Bonus!

Posted on

A very happy Thursday to all of my faithful blog readers! We are almost at the end of another week! I made yesterday a better day all around and it was made even better when I got home, I’ll get to that in a minute! I got what I wanted to get accomplished at work and smiled my way through the day. I took my own advice, it helped that I got to run a little errand and enjoy the convertible too! When I got home last night I sat down to go through Pinterest and guess what?! Stampin’ Up! repined my Mojo Monday card from last week! That put a smile on my face. You can see the Pin HERE and the post HERE. I also got my Control Freaks swaps back and that means that I get to share my card for that with you today! I absolutely love the cards today! I don’t usually say that but I think they are both neat! Another thing that should put a smile on all of your faces is that the 2014 Holiday Catalog is live today! Gather up your wish lists and go forth and order! One more thing, if you subscribe to a monthly Paper Pumpkin subscription by September 10th you will get 50% off your first two months! All you have to do is visit the Paper Pumpkin site by clicking HERE and enter in promo code HALFOFF2. As an added bonus I have an extra August Paper Pumpkin kit.

The kits keep getting better and better, don’t miss out on this special offer to give them a try!

Let’s start today’s post off with my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

Mojo360

Tall and Skinny, we know how I love those! I wanted a clean but fun card so this is what I came up with. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock. My background consists of a piece of Smoky Slate on the left and Lost Lagoon on the right. The panel in the middle begins with a piece of Soft Sky that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered to the card with SNAIL. On top of that is a piece of Whisper White with some All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut out the center and adhered it to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The “snow” and the snowflake are cut out in Silver Foil Sheet and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Snowflake Card Thinlits. I mounted the silver “snow” to the woodgrain with itty bitty pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals and then used some Multi-Purpose Glue to adhere the Dazzling Diamonds on top but slightly lower. A strip of Silver Foil Sheet with a thin strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper goes across the lower portion and the snowflakes are adhered on top of one another to that. A few of the snowflakes from the Frosted Sequins are randomly adhered to the woodgrain and three of the silver ones in the lower right corner. I really love all of the sparkle with the blues and how the center panel just comes alive! The card has a lot of detail but I think was well worth it! I hope that you agree and that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

Now on to my card for the Control Freaks 2014 Holiday Catalog swap. I was siting in the Stampin’ Galley trying to think what I was going to make for my swap card. I was doing my usual taking out and putting back of goodies when I came across the Mustache Framelit. As I looked at it I started to see a mask. I then tried a few different ways to cut out the eye holes and settled on the tiny oval that comes with the Chalk Talk Framelits. The base of the card is Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of Tangelo Twist. I used the Confetti Stars Border Punch along the top edge before adhering it to the base. The mask is the Mustache Framelit. I stamped one of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set in Versa-Mark on Vellum Card Stock and heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Feathers Framelits are used to cut it and a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper out and a Glue Dot holds them to the back of the mask. I adhered the mask with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the greeting is from the Holiday Invitation Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I love the colors and the “mask” is just really neat! I think it would make a pretty cool Halloween party invite!

Control Freaks 2014 Holiday Catalog Swap-WM

I really hope that you enjoyed my swap card, I think it’s a fun card and I love that the mustache makes such a neat little mask! There is your double dose of cards for today! Thank you so much for coming by to see them! Have a thoroughly terrific Thursday! :-)

Paper Craft Crew 107 & The Puppies

Posted on

Mid week, yes, it’s nice to be here again. My day was all sorts of fun! LOL! Not really but what can ya do?! I found that rolling with it is a much better way to go than, well, all of the other ways one could go. I try to apply that to everything in my life, but sometimes it just doesn’t work. Life is all about experiences and learning and growing from them. I am successful most of the time but there is always one that I get caught up on. I’m getting better, but there is still work that needs to be done. Sorry about that, just a little stream of consciousness that slipped out! On a happier and lighter note here is that picture of Kim with all of the puppies!

Kim & The Wuppies

Aren’t they just adorable! Yes, Kim too! LOL! Daisy is the mom and then the dad is there and the two sons. One big happy family! They do so love Kim, their favorite thing to do is sit on her!

Hmm… let’s see… Wednesday… ahh yes, it Paper Craft Crew sketch time! Here is this week’s inspiration for you…

PCCCS107 8-27-2014

I didn’t follow it exactly but I did stay pretty true to it. For my base I used a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is two different pieces of paper from the Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. I used the Striped Scallop Thinlit to cut out some Gold Foil Sheet and adhered it to the background with some Multi-Purpose Glue. A strip of Calypso Coral with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine covers up the seam and top of the scallop. My greeting is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and is stamped in Garden Green and Calypso Coral. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits and the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch to cut them out. A piece of Pistachio Pudding cut out with the Oval Collection Framelits goes behind it and all of the layers are adhered to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the way the scallop pattern in the DSP mimics the Striped Scallop and is seen again in the DSP on the top half. I hope that you enjoyed my eclectic Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Make sure that you stop by the BLOG to see more inspiration and enter your card in the gallery so I can see your take! Thank you for coming by to see what’s going on in my little corner of the world, I love having you spend some time with me! Have a wonderful Wednesday peeps! :-)

SUO Challenges 104

Posted on

So yes, that was definitely a Monday! Work was silly busy and I didn’t get all that I wanted to get accomplished done. Days like that happen and you just have to roll with them! I did go over and see the girls last night. Heather, Kim and I hung out on the bed and chatted and watched TV, I felt like a kid again! LOL! The little ones were we’ll behaved being entertained by their iPad. It really is amazing at how well little children use technology, it second nature to them! It never ceases to amaze me!

Before we get to today’s post I wanted to let you in on the Tuesday Specials from Stampin’ Up!…

Weekly Deals 8-26-2014 1

Weekly Deals 8-26-2014 2

Today my post is for the SUO Challenges Design Team and this time we have a Clean & Simple theme. I kept my card very clean and simple. The base of my card is Pistachio Pudding Card Stock. I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped two of the tree steps of the wreath from the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set* in Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding. The leaves that I stamped in Pistachio over the Cantaloupe turned a slightly darker shade of Cantaloupe. I fought that was sort of a neat effect. My greeting is from the Christmas Bliss Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Pistachio Pudding. I adhered the stamped panel to the base and added a few Pistachio sequins from the 2013-2015 In-Color Sequin Assortment. Sometime you just need a quick, simple, mailable card and this one definitely fits the bill. I think I will make some more of these in different colors for some of my holiday cards! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Clean & Simple theme! Take a minute to go to the blog and see what the rest of the design team has for inspiration and enter your card in the gallery so we can see yours!
