Paper Players 216

Posted on

So, I had a lovely day in Manhattan yesterday! I met my friend Kim for Breakfast, we went to the diner and then I headed over to see my friends Joe and Penny. I had a nice visit with them. After, I called Kim so we could meet downtown, she was finishing up her laundry so I walked down Broadway to 72nd Street to wait to hear from her so I could jump on the Subway. There is a nice park there outside the Subway Station. I sat there with my headphones on listening to Sam Smith and just soaking up the sun and taking in all of the people walking by. I have to say that I haven’t just sat and “been” for a while and it felt wonderful. I need to remember to do that more often, especially once the weather gets warmer again. After Kim text me I jumped on the Subway and headed downtown. I had to pick up something that they were holding for me at The Ink Pad and then we headed over to The Hummus and Pita Company for a late lunch. I got home around 6:30 and remembered that I had some cards to make so I sat down and crafted for a bit before calling it a night. I do have a few pictures for you today. The first one is on Broadway. They have benches in the between the north and south sides of the street so I sat on one of those for a bit.

Broadway & 89th

Next is a picture of the Broadway and 72nd Street Subway entrance. This is where I sat and listened to my music.

Broadway & 72nd Station

You can see from the pictures what a gorgeous day it was, I have to admit that it was very hard to get up from that bench!

Today is Monday so that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This time Jaydee has a Halloween theme for us…

Paper Players #216

I have made quite a few Halloween cards this year using stuff from the new catalog so I decided to dust off an oldie but goodie for this one. My card begins with a base of Basic Gray Card Stock. The first layer of my background is a piece of Basic Black. I used the Homemade Holiday Framelits to cut out three houses from the Black. I then stamped the images from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark Ink on Smoky Slate and heat embossed them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. They too are cut out with the Homemade Holiday Framelits and put back into the negatives on the Black. Over the top is a piece of Vellum Card Stock. All of my images are from the “Vintage” Fang-tastic Stamp Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with my Skin Tones Assortment, Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I used my Paper Snips to cut them all out and adhered them to the Velum with SNAIL. The greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I adhered the Vellum to the card with SNAIL carefully placed behind the images. I love the depth that the Vellum gives the card, almost like fog and makes the houses seem further back and the stamp set is just too cute! I hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Halloween theme from Jaydee. I love having you stop by to see what I have been up to and I hope that you have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

Little White Merry Christmas

Posted on

Happy World Card Making Day!! Do you have anything fun planned for today?! I hope that you will be making at least one card to celebrate!! My Friday was a very good one indeed! I got to do my monthly delivery field trip and the rest of the day was manageable as an added bonus! I came home and worked on my card for today and some projects for Sunday. I’m off to Manhattan for a bit this morning to see my friend Isabella. I haven’t see her since the beginning of the summer, lots of catching up to do!

The card that I made for you today is one that popped into my head while my friend Sandy was here for a little visit last night. It’s a simple pretty traditional Christmas card to make up for my very non-traditional one yesterday! 😛

The card base is a piece of Mossy Meadow Card Stock. I think that Mossy Meadow has definitely become my favorite Christmas green! Next up is a piece of Cherry Cobbler. I embossed the “Christmas” from the “Vintage” Joy to the World Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The frame is a piece of Crumb Cake and I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to create it. The merry is cut out with the Little Letters Thinlits across the bottom. My scene is created using the White Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set. All of the elements are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, I colored in the stars with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers and did a little shading under the polar bear with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I used the Color Lifter to lighten up the shading and adhered the panel to the back of the frame with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. A strip of Crumb Cake under the Christmas completes the card. I love those Little Letters Thinlits, especially the negative of the letters and the White Christmas Set makes it easy and fun to create a little scene! I hope that you like today’s simple Christmas card. I thank you very much for spending a little time with me today! Now go and a make a card and celebrate World Card Making Day!! 🙂

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! 🙂

Paper Craft Crew 110 & Mixed Media!

It was a little on the chilly side here this morning and it drizzled most of the day. It did manage to finally clear up by the evening and the sun did peek it’s head out for a bit. I had a somewhat lazy evening, I messed around in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit and ran a few errands but other than that it was a quiet evening. I do have something fun to share with you today in addition to my card. I love when you are kind enough to share some of the things that you are working on with me. We had Grace’s quilt and now our friend Donna has sent me some pictures of her multi-media projects that she has done! There are three different canvases, one has a picture of her adorable granddaughter, one is a small one (purple) and the last one is a beach. I think that they are just fantastic! It makes me want to finish the one that I started a few weeks ago! So here are Donna’s canvases for your viewing pleasure!

MM 1 Donna

MM 2 Donna

MM 5 Donna

MM 3 Donna

MM 4 Donna

Aren’t they awesome!! I really like all of them but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the beach one! You can feel the warmth from the sunset and almost hear the waves and smell the salt air! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us Donna! I really appreciate it!

It’s Wednesday right?! LOL! Well, that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…

PCCCS110 Sketch 9-17-2014

When I saw the sketch I wasn’t going to take it literally and then I thought that I could have some fun with it! I started with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The background is a piece of Basic Black and I heat embossed the “Vintage” Off the Grid Stamp in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Next I heat embossed the Dictionary Background Stamp in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Very Vanilla. The greeting from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set is also heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Word Bubbles Framelits to cut them out and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My stars are Gold Foil Sheet that I punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and they too are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the end I’m glad that I did stay true to the sketch, I had fun using all of the heat embossing and love the simple Vanilla, Black and Gold together! Well, I really hope that you enjoyed the pictures of Donna’s multi-media projects and my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and see they other designer’s projects and let’s see what you come up with. Enter your project in the gallery! Thank you very much for coming by and I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Embellished Gold & Black Wedding

Posted on

All around yesterday was a pretty good day! Work was very nice, all of the people in my department had lunch together for my birthday and they decorated my desk too. I came home and Heather stopped by for a little bit. My friends Brian and Kim had a little get together for me last night. Andrew, Danielle, Taylor, and my friend Stephanie joined us, we had some food and drinks, and Andrew brought his Cards Against Humanity game over. If you have never played this game and are not easily offended, I highly recommend it. We spent about 3 hours gasping and hysterically laughing at the extremely creative cards that they’ve come up with. I say it all the time, but I am quite lucky to have the friends that I have. Sometimes all you need is a small get together to make a birthday perfect. To make a great day even better, all of your birthday wishes brought a big smile to my face. Thank you so much for your kind words!! 🙂

*We interrupt this program for a special message.*

Hi folks, Andrew here! Unfortunately, I tried to type up a surprise message for Justin yesterday and WordPress decided not to post it. No worries, though, I’m here today to amend that situation! LOL! I just wanted to wish Justin the happiest of birthdays and say how lucky I am to have him in my life and call him a friend. When everyone else fails to be there, Justin is without a doubt by my side if I need him and I can’t thank him enough for all he does for me. I’m glad that he enjoyed his birthday, and I’m glad I was there to enjoy it with him. LOL! Alright, I’ll keep this short, but especially after WordPress screwed up yesterday (GR!), I had to make sure I hijacked his blog for a birthday wish. Ha ha! Enjoy your day, everyone! 🙂

*Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.*

The card that I have for you today is one that my friend Danielle had asked me to make for her. Her and her boyfriend are attending a friend’s wedding today. I have to tell you, it feels much easier to take make a card for someone when you know the person. That being said, here’s what I came up with…

The card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock and my background is a piece of Basic Black. I used some Sticky Strip to adhere a length of the Gold Sequin Trim around the back and then adhered the card to the base with Fast Fuse Adhesive. The two images are from the Embellished Events Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. The greeting is from the “Vintage” Follow My Heart Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Kraft Card Stock and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits; some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it to the card. Wedding cards always need a little more bling, so I adhered some Basic Jewels Rhinestones to the champagne flutes. A nice, simple, elegant wedding card with just the right amount of sparkle! I really like the way the champagne flutes look like actual glasses when they are embossed on the vellum. I hope that you enjoyed my card for today and if you haven’t tried heat embossing on vellum, I don’t know what else to do. LOL! Thanks for stopping by, and have a spectacular Saturday! 🙂

First days back to work after a long weekend are usually not that great but mine was! I had to go out to East Hampton to the school that we have there and set up a loop on one of the TV’s using the new hardware and software that I recommended. It’s a 75 mile trip each way and once you get to certain point on the road that goes out there it’s one lane and very slow moving. But, it was a nice sunny, if not very hot and humid day. Top down in the car and the music up nice and loud made for a good if not long ride. It was the day before classes start so the staff was there and they got everyone pizza for lunch. I picked a good day to go out there! LOL! I got the setup done in about 2 1/2 hours and then headed home. You wouldn’t know that Long Island really is long until you head out to the Hamptons! It’s still the place to go after all of these years, I have friends that have houses out there and I have been out in the summer but it’s way too crowded for me. I like to go out in the fall, there are less people but still things to do and places to go. I do love a field trip as you all know! 😀

One of the stamp sets that I use on my card today is called Good Greetings. It’s the Host set for the 2014 Holiday Catalog and you can earn the set for free when you either host a party or place an order for $300 or more between now and October 31st. This is in addition to the regular Host Benefits that you already get. You can see more info below or clock HERE to download a PDF of the flyer. It’s a great set to have in that really cool font! Get yours today!

It’s Wednesday (already!) and that means that today is my post for the Paper Craft Crew Design Team blog. This week we have a fun sketch for you…

PCCCS108- Sketch 9-03-2014

At first I though postage stamps for the two squares and then I decided that was too obvious so I dusted off an oldie but goodie! For my card base I used a piece of Smoky Slate Card Stock with a small strip of Pool Party going down the left side. The panel in the middle is a piece of Lost Lagoon and I heat embossed the sentiment/image from the Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler and mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My two snowflakes are from the “Vintage” Festive Flurry Stamp Set, they are heat embossed in Pool Party and cut out with the “Vintage” Festive Flurry Framelits. I flagged a piece of Whisper White and heat embossed the greeting on it from the Good Greetings Host Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some Dimensionals go behind the snowflakes and flagged greeting and hold them in place. To complete the card I place three enamel dots up in the right corner. The Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set is really cool and looks especially good heat embossed on a darker color, really makes the sentiment stand out and I still love those snowflakes! The card has a somewhat tailored masculine feel to it, wouldn’t you agree?! And there you have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge, Take a minute to stop by the blog and see what creations my fellow designers have for you and enter one of yours in the gallery! I hope that you enjoyed the card! I thank you for stopping by to see what I have been up to and I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

And there goes another weekend! I spent a good part of the day in Manhattan helping out a few friends. I was running around and I didn’t go anywhere new so I didn’t take any pictures. However, I did take a few pictures when I was in PA on Saturday. When I was little and would go there the town was a lot less crowded and there were less houses. There are so many new houses behind my Grandmother’s but when I was standing outside the funeral home and looked across the street I could see clear over to the mountains…

Ringtown

You can see that the houses in the picture are newer, they weren’t there when I was a kid. After we got back from the cemetery we went to this little restaurant for lunch. If you ever happen to be in the Ringtown are and want some food I would highly recommend it. The prices were great, service was excellent and the food was delicious!

Creekside

And yes, there is a creek the runs along side the place! 🙂

Well if it’s Monday that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. For this one we have an unusual color combo from Nance…

Paper Players #208

I think that the inspiration picture is neat! My card starts off with a base of Basic Gray Card Stock. My background is stamped with the coral from the By the Sea Stamp Set in Hello Honey. The shells are stamped in Basic Gray on Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride and cut out with my Paper Snips. Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. The love is a piece of Calypso Coral that I cut out with the “Vintage” Expressions Thinlits and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. I stamped the You from the Work of Art Stamp Set in Blushing Bride and some gray iridescent sequins complete the background. I mounted it to a piece of Hello Honey before adhering it to the base. I love the way that the Love and the You look like they were made for each other. A simple but sweet card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge. Thank you so much for coming buy and I wish you a happy easy Monday! 🙂
