Wonderful Calypso Espresso

Posted on

I had a lovely day in Manhattan yesterday despite the rain in the morning. I went in early and met my friend Kim for some diner breakfast and then headed over to see my friend Ella. After Ella’s I went down to Penn Station and met Andrew then I had to stop by and see Jon and Mary for a bit. When we finished there we headed downtown to get some lunch. Andrew is a big fan of hummus so I thought that Hummus and Pita Company would be a good place to go. It was quite tasty as always! Andrew needed to stop by the Apple Store to get his lightning cable replace and who doesn’t like a visit to the Apple Store?! I got a text from Brian saying that he was in the city not too far from us so we went and met up with him for some Starbucks. On the subway ride back up we saw a group perform some acrobatic dance moves in the 34th Street/Herald Square Station. Only in Manhattan people! We stopped at Kim’s for a bit and then headed over to Isabella’s to drop off her Stampin’ Up! order and then it was time to come home. Here are some pictures from yesterday’s travels.

Andrew 14th Street

That’s Andrew just down the block from the Apple Store on 14th Street. Notice the lovely banana peel on the floor! LOL!

Brian, Me and Andrew NYC

Does it look like we were having a good day?! That’s Brian on the left in his Fire Department uniform. That was also after the Starbucks!

A fun day in the city indeed! After I got home I sat down to make my card for today and was inspired to use the You’re Wonderful Photopolymer Stamp Set and last week’s Pals Paper Arts colors! Ooops! My card base for today is Early Espresso Card Stock. The main stamp from the You’re Wonderful Photopolymer Stamp Set is heat embossed in Early Espresso Stampin’ Emboss Powder on So Saffron. I heat embossed the banners in Calypso Coral on Early Espresso along with the greetings and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flowers are heat embossed in Calypso Coral on Vellum Card Stock and colored in with Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and used a tiny bit of Multi-Purpose Glue to adhere them to the card. I guess I liked the colors so much that they stuck in my head and what would one of my cards be without some heat embossing and vellum lately?! I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the city pics! Thanks for coming by to see what I have been up to and enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

Golden Blackberry 50th

Posted on

Hi there! I’m getting a late start today and I apologize for that! I had a nice evening last night with some of my peeps for Brian’s birthday. A bunch of us went over to Brian and Kim’s for some food and drink. Brian is quite the amazing cook, he made chicken and beef sliders, some yummy meatballs and there were chips and other assorted goodies! We all just sat around the fire pit and laughed and talked. Sometimes those are the best kind of nights, don’t you think. I did have a bit of a headache when I got home, September and October are allergy season for me and I keep forgetting to take my allergy pills! I was up until around 2:00 waiting for the Excedrin to kick in, hence I woke up a little on the late side! I do have some pictures from last night for you though! Here are me and the birthday boy…

Brian & I 9-2014

Here are Heather and me…

Heather & I 9-2014

And finally Kim and me…

Kim & I 9-2014

I couldn’t stop laughing in that last picture so we just went with it! LOL!

Now on to my card for today. My boss asked me to make her parents a 50th Wedding Anniversary card. I wanted to keep it simple yet elegant and this is what I came up with. The card begins with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock. I adhered one of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies with some SNAIL to the base. For the focal point I started with a piece of Blackberry Bliss that I cut out with the Party Pennants Bigz L Die. My greeting is from the “Vintage” One in a Million Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some Champagne Glimmer Paper and the “Vintage” Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies are used to cut out the numbers and they are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I tied a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine around the top of the pennant in a bow and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Still loving the Blackberry Bliss with the gold and the Sahara Sand makes a nice change for the usual White or Vanilla! The greeting is also still one of my favorites! I think that it’s a simple elegant card and you can let me know if agree! Thank you for stooping by to see what my Friday was like, I love sharing my day with you all! Have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

Fab Friday 48

T G I F!! T G I F!! T G I F!! Can you tell that I’m excited that it’s Friday?!?! I’m not going to lie, I’m over work this week, too many things that shouldn’t be given to me to do are given to me. I have a few errands to run today, like the Apple Store so that will make the day much better! It was a gorgeous day here yesterday in the high 70’s and a slight breeze with plenty of sun! It sure doesn’t feel like August and I hope that this doesn’t mean that there will be another bad winter! But I’m really enjoying it at the moment! Tonight I have some crafty things to do and at some point over the weekend I would like to get the Stampin’ Galley a little more organized! We’ll see how that goes! LOL! What do they say about the best laid plans?! What’s on for the weekend for you people?!

Today is a very special Friday not just because it a Fab Friday but it’s a special Fab Friday! Mindy had her little baby boy Ian!! We decided to surprise her with a little change of plans! We all made baby card this time! Congratulations Mindy and Jon!! He’s adorable!!

Fab Friday Baby-001

I went with a nice simple card that would be easy to duplicate, I actually know quite a few people that have had babies lately. Little Daniel turned nine months old yesterday and is crawling and sitting up already! They do grow up so fast! My card begins with a base of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. The background is a piece of Lullaby Designer Series Paper, I punched the left side with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and adhered it to the base with SNAIL. My large flag is a piece of Hello Honey and I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the circle in the middle. Across the top is a piece of Coastal Cabana that I trimmed with the Small Scallop Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade and adhered it to the flag with Multi-Purpose Glue. Before adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I stamped my sentiment from the Dear Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar. The sweet onesie is from the Something for Baby Stamp Set and is stamped in Pistachio Pudding and cut out with the Baby’s First Framelits. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold that in place too. Like I said simple but I love the layout and the colors! I really hope that Mindy and you both enjoyed the card and that Mindy was surprised! That’s my card for this week’s Welcome Ian challenge for Fab Friday. Head on over to the blog to see what my teammates have done and let’s see what you can come up with! Thank you for coming by to see me today, I hope that you all have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 143 and a Quilt!

Posted on

I had a very busy day yesterday! Busy but in a good way! I was up quite late on Thursday night, my friend Heather stopped by at 12:30AM with a large bottle of wine that needed finishing, I had to help her! I got up yesterday morning a lot later than I usually do and got right to organizing and putting stuff away. Andrew came by around 1:00PM with pizza for lunch, just when you think he can’t get any better! He helped me put up shelves and pictures, organize and put away more stuff. I feel very accomplished and that makes me very happy! I watched a movie last night, Non-Stop with Liam Neeson, a very good but tense movie. Those are fun sometimes aren’t they?! This morning I have a lot on my list too. I need to see if I can get the rest of my stuff out of the old apartment and work on some projects for tomorrow’s Creation Station Blog Tour. I’m also going to head into Manhattan around 2:00Pm to meet up with my friend Kim. Satellite Lane has a proposal to do in Central Park and we are going to go and see that. After Andrew, Kim and I are going to go and have some dinner and drinks! A busy day, I hope I can get it all done!

One of the best parts of my blog is getting to know some of you through comments and emails. A very sweet friend of mine, Grace, shares some pictures with me from time to time. The other day she sent me a picture of a quilt that she had made. I was amazed at how beautiful it is! I know some people that quilt and it’s not easy work. I asked her if I could share the picture with you and she graciously said yes! Here it is in all it’s glory…

Log Cabin Quilt-WM

Isn’t it gorgeous! Great colors and patterns! Thank you Grace for letting me share your beautiful creation!

One more thing before I get to today’s card. Someone had asked me the other day what I call my craft space. I don’t have a name for it. I thought it would be fun to get suggestions from you! You guys always have such inventive ways to describe things. I posted a picture of it the other day and you can see it HERE. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think it should be called!

Now on to today’s card which is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Cindy L….

Freshly Made Sketches #143

I love the layout! So many possibilities! I used some Crumb Cake Card Stock for the base of the card. The stars are created with the Hearts & Stars Mask, a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake Ink. A strip of paper from the Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper Pack goes across the bottom. Next up I cutout a piece of Bermuda Bay with two of the Circles Collection Framelits. A piece of Vellum Card Stock is also cut out and adhered behind the circle with Multi-Purpose Glue and a little more glue adheres it to the card. A strip of Pistachio Pudding and a one of Basic Gray, with the right side flagged, are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals on top of the Designer Series Paper. My greeting is from the Hi There Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangelo Twist and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. To add a little sparkle I adhered three Pistachio Pudding 2013-2015 In-Color Sequins to the vellum circle. The masked stars are a fun addition to the background and I love those sequins! Thanks for taking a little time out of your busy day to come by and visit with me to see my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. You all make my days better! Don’t forget to let me know what my stamp space should be called by leaving a comment. I hope that you also enjoyed Grace’s quilt as much as I did! Have a wonderful Saturday! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 137 & Bonus!

Posted on

I was hoping that Friday would be a nice easy day but alas that was not meant to be. They are building out he warehouse at work and my department got to move boxes around all day. I haven’t been to the gym in a while but I definitely feel like I went yesterday! It was overcast all day and rained last night. I did go to IHOP with Anthony and Bill for dinner. I haven’t had IHOP in ages. I was good and got the low calories pancake and eggs. I do love  a little breakfast for dinner! I came home and watched a movie and then just relaxed. It was a good way to end a busy day. What do all of you have planned for this long weekend? I’m playing it by ear. 🙂

I have my Freshly Made Sketches sketches card for this week’s challenge for you today. There is also a bonus card at the end of the post! This week’s sketch is given to us by Jen M….

Freshly Made Sketches #137

A very simple sketch so I stayed true to it with my card. The base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Hello Honey that I embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Across the lower part of the card is a piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper. I love how nicely the embossing folder and the paper go together. My greeting is from the Everyday Occasions Card Making Kit and is stamped in Lost Lagoon. I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits to cut it out. It’s backed with some Basic Gray and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two butterflies that I punched out from Lost Lagoon with the Bitty Butterfly Punch are adhered to the right of the greeting. Simple card with some of my favorite new In-Colors and DSP. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Scroll down a little to see my extra card for you for today. Thank you so much for dropping by, have a great Saturday! 🙂

Paper Players 195 & a Few Extras!

Posted on

Happy Monday! Yes, happy because yesterday was such an amazingly gorgeous day here on Long Island. I mean perfect temperatures, in the low 70’s and the sun was shining, there was even a slight breeze. Just complete bliss! I went and met my friend Joe for breakfast. He is in town from Los Angeles for a bit. We went to the diner and then came back to my house and caught up. It was good to see him, it’s been over a year. He is here for a little bit longer so I hope to see him again before he goes back. After I went for a nice ride in the convertible and I did manage to craft for a bit and watched a little TV too. All in all an almost perfect day! Also, thank you all so much for your wonderful comments on both cards from yesterday’s post. I really appreciate you taking the time to write and I know that Andrew does too! I hope that your Sunday was just as amazing!

If you scroll to the bottom of the post you will see the cards that I made for my friend Danielle. They are all duplicates of ones I have made before. One is a recent one and the other two are from a long time ago. 🙂

Monday, yes, that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week my talented friend Sandy has given us a color challenge with a great inspiration picture…

Paper Players #195

Today’s card is sort of a toned down collage card. I used only two stamp sets! I’m just as shocked as you are! LOL! The base is So Saffron Card Stock and I stamped the images from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set in So Saffron right on the base. A piece of Gold Foil Sheet cut out with the On Film Framelits is adhered to the base to frame a piece of Epic Day This & That Designer Series Paper that I punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch. I stamped the image in the circle in Calypso Coral from the same set and punched it out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, it serves as the anchor for the rest of the goodies. The flowers are also from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set, I heat embossed them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Calypso Coral and then cut them out with my Paper Snips. Some Pear Pizzaz cut out with the Little Leaves Sizzlit are tucked behind them. My greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Pear Pizzaz. I cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and also a piece of Gold Foil Sheet to back it. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold all of the elements to the card. I think it’s a fun eclectic card and I love the gold accents, they go so nicely with the So Saffron and Calypso Coral. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge from Sandy. I so appreciate you coming and spending some time with me. I hope that you all have a great Monday! 🙂

Pals Paper Arts 203 & Happy Mother’s Day!

Posted on

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mothers out there! Where would we be without you? In big trouble and if the truth be told not here at all! I do have a Mother’s Day card for you today but it’s not mine. I had a very nice relaxing day yesterday. I got my haircut and then crafted for a bit. I watched some TV and then Andrew stopped by to make his mom a Mother’s Day card. I think he did a great job! He used the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers and even did some fussy cutting! I have the pictures to prove it too! Here he is coloring…

Andrew Coloring

And here he is fussy cutting…

Andrew Fussy Cutting

The funny thing is I asked him if he wanted a stamp that had a Framelit and he said yes. After he cut them out he didn’t like the white around the flower so he ended up cutting them out anyway. He did an awesome job coloring and cutting. He did some heat embossing too. And here is the card that he made for his mom…

Andrew MD 2014-WM

I think he did a great job! I’m sure that she will love it! And the flowers are just amazing! You’ll have to let us know what you think! 🙂

Now off to my card which is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…

PPA 203

When I see theses colors I think of fall but I decided that if your mom liked the colors my card might even make a good Mother’s Day card! LOL! I needed a collage style card. There are a lot of goodies on it so be warned! The base of the card is Cajun Craze Card Stock. I adhered one of the Tea Lace paper Doilies in the right corner for a little background. Next up is a piece of Very Vanilla that I cut the top edge of with the File Tabs Edgelits Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Countless Sayings 1 & 2 Photopolymer Stamp Sets in Night of Navy. In the lower right is a piece of Night of Navy that I cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and then trimmed some of it away. The angled strip of Cajun Craze is embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and on top of it are two tickets from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set. They are stamped in Night of Navy and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. Above that is a piece of Night of Navy that I cut out with one of the elements from the Circle Card Thinlits Dies. The xoxo is from the same and is cut out from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. My tag is a piece of Night of Navy that I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder on. I also Paper-Pierced around the edge with the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack*. A piece of Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon tied with some White Bakers Twine goes through the top. My flowers are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set and are stamped in Cajun Craze on Cajun Craze. I used the Gold Stampin’ Dazzle Marker to make the centers. Last up is a Regals Designer Button adhered with the new Fast Fix Adhesive. Like I said there is a lot but I think that it all works quite well together. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge and also Andrew’s Mother’s Day Card. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a great Sunday and a wonderful Mother’s Day! 🙂
