Catherine & Cathy Create 31

Posted on

First let me apologize for the email that you received about my post last night. I was trying to productive and type my post on the train on the way into Manhattan and I accidentally posted it instead of saving it as a draft. Such a dunce! LOL! This is the actual real post, so sorry again. From now on we type the posts on the phone in Evernote and not the WordPress App! Speaking of Manhattan, dinner was good and the show was excellent as always! As soon as I have some time I’ll post some of the video here. Oh and it poured non stop. By the time I did get home I could actually wring the water out of my pants. I only got to take one picture outside the venue. It was under an awning, the only dry place to be had as there was a leak in part of the ceiling in Tammany Hall too. It’s just the street but I find that you can see so much in Manhattan just looking down the street…

Outside Tammany Hall

Nothing exciting, just some buildings and cars. I do think that the buildings in Manhattan are neat, there are no two that are exactly alike. Not the most exciting picture but a little view of what I saw last night. 🙂

Today I’m over on the Catherine & Cathy Create blog for the monthly challenge…

I have had the Natural Composition Designer Series Paper forever and I think I have only used it once! Seeing as it’s going “Vintage” I thought I should use it now! The base of my card starts off with a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of the Naturals Composition Designer Series Paper. My main panel is also Whisper White. The letters may look familiar, they are the ones that were cut out of yesterday’s card! I used some 2-Way Glue to adhere them. A piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape goes across the middle and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the base. The two large stars are from the Simply Starts Stamp Set are stamped in Bermuda Bay. I used the “Vintage” Large Star Punch to punch them out. The small gold stars are Gold Foil Sheet and that are punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. For the medium star I used some Champagne Glimmer Paper and the star from the Circle Card Thinlits. My greeting is from the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set, I selectively stamped just the “Lovely” and heat embossed it in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold all of the elements to the panel. I really like the bright white, blue and gold against the kraft color of the Designer Series Paper. I’m a little bummed that I didn’t use it more! You can go and see what the rest of the Design Team have come up with for the challenge by taking a little visit to the blog. Did you enjoy today’s card? Let me know what you thought by leaving a comment. Thanks for taking the time to come and see me! Have a fantastic Thursday!
