Freshly Made Sketches #71

Posted on

Hello peeps! What’s going on in your neck of the woods? Same old same old here on Long Island. But the week is almost over, time seems to moving along at a rapid pace. I can’t believe that we are at the end of January already! Ahh… but before you know it it will be spring! I like the fact it stays light past 5 o’clock now. More daylight always means more happy!

So today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. But before I get to that I want to thank one of the amazing Demonstrator Support Reps from Stampin’ Up! Last week I email Demo Support because I wanted to know exactly how they made one of the cards they demoed at Leadership. I thought it was strange that I had not heard back, they usually get back to you within two days. Well, I got an email from Pam today with the instructions and an apology for the delay. Thank you very much Pam! You made my evening. I’m thanking Pam in the hopes that she sees this because there is no way for us to email the same rep back so, today’s card is for Pam. 🙂

This week’s sketch is provided by the clever Linda C….

Freshly Made Sketches #71

I love that fact that it has a tag on it. I haven’t done anything with a tag in a long time. The base of my card is Sahara Sand Card Stock. It is definitely my new Crumb Cake. I love the grayish sand color! The background is made with a piece of Island Indigo embossed with the Vine Street Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I created the tag using my Simply Scored Tool. I cut a piece of Sahara Sand to 1 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ and used the Diagonal Plate to score the corners and then cut the off with my Stampin’ Trimmer. The reinforcement at the top is punched first with a regular hole punch and then with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I used a stamp from the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set inked in Sahara Sand to give the tag some texture. The feathers (my question to DS) are made from Creped Filter Paper and the Blossom Builder Punch. I sponged them in Island Indigo and adhered a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine on the back and used my Paper Snips to cut in at an angle along the edges. They make some really nice looking feathers! They are adhered to the tag with Multipurpose Glue. The flower is from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo on Sahara Sand and cut out with the Floral Frames Collection Framelits Dies. I backed it with a piece of Island Indigo punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and a piece of Sahara Sand punched out with the  1 3/8″ Circle Punch. An In-Color Printed Brad holds it together and the flower and the tag are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting I stamped a piece of Sahara Sand with the vine from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set in Sahara Sand and then stamped the greeting form the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set in Island Indigo. A flagged end and some SNAIL and the card is complete. I hope that you enjoyed my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Thank you for taking some time out of your busy day to visit, I always love having you stop by! Have a fantastic day!

Paper Craft Crew Sketch 027

Posted on

Wednesday! Halfway to Friday! So, I have decided to stop obsessing about the weather. I will say one last time that I am looking forward to spring. Yesterday was an early to work day. I’m feeling a bit sluggish today, 5 hours of sleep is apparently not enough for me. I’ll have to see if I can catch up later, probably not! How are all of you today? I am having a quiet week so no complaints on my end. 🙂

For today’s post I have my Paper Craft Crew card. This week we have a sketch…

PCCCS027-Sketch

I’m really liking the colors in the Sycamore Street DSP from Sale-A-Bration so there is little strip on my card again! The base of today’s card is a piece of Island Indigo Card Stock. Some Sahara Sand is embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. I stamped the greeting and the umbrella handle on a piece of Whisper White. The greeting in Tangerine Tango and the umbrella handle in Soft Suede. The top of the umbrella is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with my Paper Snips. I curved it and mounted it to the greeting panel with a Stampin’ Dimensional. All of these elements are from the Rain or Shine Stamp Set. A strip of Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper goes across the top and on top of that is a piece of Pool Party that I embossed with the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The image inside the Soda Pop Top is form the Spring Sampler Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. I choose a Tangerine Tango Button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack and put a thin piece of Pool Party through it for the “thread”. Both the Soda Pop Top and the button are adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots. I really do like this card a lot, I’m usually my worst critic, but this one I like! I hope that you like it too. Thank you for looking at my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge. I hope that you enjoy your day… Rain or Shine!

Good morning peeps! How is everything on your end? Things are good here, other than it snowed, hailed, sleeted then rained here yesterday. We got every form of winter precipitation in one day. It’s supposed to be party sunny here today and go up to 50 on Wednesday with some rain. By the weekend it’s going to be in the 20’s again. Crazy weather! I sound like I am a little obsessed with the weather don’t I?! LOL!

Today my post is for Mojo Monday. This week’s sketch has been provided by Julee Tilman…

Mojo278

It’s got some more layers than we have had in previous weeks, a good excuse to bust out a lot of product! The base of my card is Rich Razzleberry Card Stock. I used a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack for the background. Before I adhered it to the card I used some Sticky Strip to hold a piece of Pool Party 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon in place. The next layer is a piece of Rich Razzleberry that I embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the main piece I stamped the images form the Best of Birthday’s 25th Anniversary Set in Rich Razzleberry. I cut one of the presents out with my Paper Snips and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The backing is a piece of Pool Party and the flags on the bottom are cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and Stamped with an image from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set in Pool Party. I adhered it to the card with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of Pool Party is punched out with the 1 3/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch and embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Some Summer Starfruit is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the Pool Party scallop circle. The image is from the Ciao, Baby! Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I really like the way the scallop circles all layer so nicely together and the color combination is neat too. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and thank you, as always, for stopping by. Have an amazing day! 🙂

Cloudy Spring Wish Photo B’day

Posted on

Monday morning so soon… why do you spirit away my weekend?! It was a good weekend, but way too short as always. I had a nice morning in Manhattan yesterday. Breakfast with Kim was fun and yummy as always and I got to see my friends Isabella, Diego and Bettina which is always nice. I got some exercise in walking about 30 blocks even though it was quite chilly. The train ride in and back was quiet, Sunday is always a nice day to take the train. There are usually a lot less people and they seem calmer on Sunday for some reason. I’m starting the day off right with some delicious Cadbury’s Whole Nut Chocolate! LOL! I love chocolate! What all did you guys do this weekend?

I have a non-challenge card for you today. I had seen a card with a similar concept in a magazine but I put my own spin on it. The base of the card is Riding Hood Red Card Stock. The background is created with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and some Baja Breeze. I left about 1 1/4″ alone along the bottom as I put the card stock in sideways. The little instant pictures are made using a backing of Whisper White and Basic Black for the bottom one, Basic Gray for the middle one and Baja Breeze for the top one. The grey and blue are stamped with the hot air ballon form the Spring Sampler Stamp Set in Riding Hood Red and Not Quite Navy. For the greeting I used my favorite stamp from the Make a Wish Stamp Set, stamped in Not Quite Navy and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. The instant pictures and the greeting are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the instant pictures on the card a lot. The three different colors on them make it look like the pictures are developing. I hope that you enjoyed today’s card. Thanks very much for visiting and I hope that you have a super day!

Paper Players #130 :-)

Posted on

Brrrr! A chilly good Sunday morning to you! I don’t think it has gotten above freezing in over a week here. I am in desperate need of some warm weather! To all of my friends in Australia, please send some of you heat this way! I did have a very nice day yesterday, despite the cold. I went to Heather’s for a super delicious breakfast, then went to Target and then over to see Brian, Kim and the kiddies. I came home and crafted for a bit and picked up Taylor for some quality dad-daughter time. This morning I’m off to Manhattan to see some friends. I better make sure I bundle up!

If it’s Sunday that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. First, congratulations to Nicole for her Bee-autiful card, it made her my Cut Above for last week’s challenge! This week the lovely LeAnne has provided us with this nice sketch…

Paper Players 130 2-03-2013

I had an idea as to what I wanted to do as soon as I saw it. The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. The Whisper White panel is stamped with the Spec-Tacular Single Stamp in Basic Gray and I used the 3/16″ Corner rounder to round the corners. A piece of Silver Glimmer Paper takes the place of a ribbon across the bottom. The greeting is form the Dude, You’re Welcome Kit and is stamped in Basic Gray. I again rounded the corners and punched a piece of Red Glimmer Paper out with the Small Heart Punch to fill in the blank. I think this would be a great guy’s Valentine’s Day card or just a fun love card for anyone. I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge from LeAnne. Thanks very much for spending some time with me today! I hope you have a nice cozy Sunday.

Pretty Rose Tide Birthday

Posted on

Good morning from snowy Long Island. We had about 2 inches of snow here last night, which is not a lot but still too much for me. It’s so cold that it looked like it was snowing glitter. I think it will probably be here for a little while because it’s not supposed to get warmer until Wednesday. Just another side effect of the winter!

Today I have a card for you that is a somewhat of a CASE from one that I did a few weeks ago. A friend of mine at work needed a birthday card for a girlfriend of hers. She said that she liked the fish from By the Tide because this girls husband and my friends husband fish together. I was a little unsure at first but here it is. The base of the card is Soft Suede Card Stock. The background is a piece of Pink Pirouette that is stamped with the Netting Background Stamp inked in Pink Pirouette. I stamped the coral and the poem in Rose Red on Whisper White. The coral piece I cut out with the 3 1/2″ Bigz Circle Die and the poem is backed by a piece of Rose Red and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the fish I stamped him in Soft Suede and cut him out with my Paper Snips. The greeting is from the Wishes Your Way Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and punched out with the Word Window Punch. I backed it with a piece of Rose Red that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The fish and the greeting are also mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I actually like the and my friend thought it was perfect. I think it’s about as feminine as you can get with the By the Tide set! Thank you for stopping by today and I hope that you have a crafty day! 🙂

Create with Connie and Mary 236

Posted on

T G I F! Thank god it’s FRIDAY! I am so ready for this week to done! It is still freezing here, the overnight low was 12 degrees and tomorrow they are saying a chance of snow. I’m still hoping they are wrong! I believe that snow should be reserved for ski resorts not metropolitan areas! I had my SU! meeting last night and it was fun as always. I love seeing everyone and getting the swaps which were really neat! I’ll post my swap card soon and the ones that I got too! Are we ready for the weekend?? I sure am!

Friday also means that it’s time for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week the ladies have given us a color challenge…

CCMC 236

Funnily enough when I first looked at the colors I envisioned holiday, must be the cold weather! A second glance and some advice from a friend helped me think flowers. The base of the card is Pretty in Pink Card Stock. The background is a piece of Very Vanilla and I stamped the greeting from the Wacky Wishes Host(ess) Stamp Set and the stem in Lucky Limeade. The flower is one of the new single stamps called Boutique Blossom. I stamped it in Raspberry Ripple and cut it out with my Paper Snips. The butterflies are from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set and are also stamped in Raspberry Ripple. I used the Bitty Butterfly Punch to punch them out. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them and the flower to the card. I like the simplicity and the large flower is great. I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card for this week. Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful FRIDAY!
