Mojo 320

Posted on

It was quite chilly again here today and is just going to get colder. Winter has finally arrived just in time for the Holiday’s. Who invited it again?! LOL! One more day until the week is done, always makes me smile! I’ll be in Manhattan on Saturday, it’s supposed to rain in the morning but hopefully it will clear up so I can go for a little stroll. Sunday will be a crafty day, lots to do!

My inspiration for today’s post is this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge and the clever Julee Tilman provides us with this sketch…

Mojo320

This has been a little bit of a “Vintage” week so I figured I would continue on with the trend! My card starts off with a base of Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. The panel of paper is from the “Vintage” Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack from this year’s Spring Catalog. Next up is a piece of Summer Starfruit that I embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My image is from the Crazy, Mixed Up Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals on Vellum Card Stock and Very Vanilla. I cut them both out with my Paper Snips and adhered just the top and bottom of the one stamped on the Very Vanilla to the Vellum piece. It makes a great way to hide the Stampin’ Dimensionals that I used to adhere it to the Very Vanilla base backed with some Primrose Petals. Before I adhered all of that to the card I used some Sticky Strip to fix the Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the back. A piece is tied to the ribbon and the greeting is adhered with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’m loving the way the lava lamp looks stamped on the Vellum and the colors are fun too! Thanks so much for visiting me today to see my Mojo Monday card for this week’s sketch. Here’s to a speedy Thursday! 🙂

Deco Sail Birthday

Posted on

Hey there! Today is the last day of Convention and I head home later on tonight. I really can’t explain what an amazing time I have had. I have met so many people and made so many new friends. It has definitely been one of the best experiences of my life.

Today I have another card that I made a little while ago for a friend’s birthday. There are some “Vintage” goodies on it but I love the layout. The base of the card is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Vellum Card Stock with the “Vintage” Oh, Wave! Stampin’ Around Jumbo Wheel inked in Costal Cabana. Next up are two flagged pieces, one is Costal Cabana and the other is Crushed Curry. The main image is the “Vintage” Sail Away Stamp stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and cut out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies. I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso from the Cycle Celebration Stamp Set. The images could easily be replaced with current ones but like I said, I really like the layout. Thank you for coming by today and I’ll have some Convention pictures for you tomorrow!

Paper Players #149 :-)

Sunday already! That Saturday just flew by. I did get a lot accomplished and I even got to watch my movie! Taylor and I watched The Source Code and it was really good! Lot’s of cool effects and things to think about. It was a nice day here yesterday, a little cloudy at times but we did get some sun. I think they said it’s supposed to get up to 81 degrees today and be a little on the humid side so I will get to finish the rest of my projects today.

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another Paper Players Challenge. This week we have some fun colors from Ann…

Paper Players #149 Colors 6-09-2013

Some of my favorites are included in there! The base of my card is So Saffron Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the Beautifully Baroque Stamp in Pool Party. The panel across the top is also stamped in Pool Party using the Amazing Accent Wheel with some Calypso Coral 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon across the middle. For the images in the center I used the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and Chalk Talk Framelits and adhered them with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final addition is a Very Vintage Designer Button with some Calypso Coral Bakers Twine tied in a bow. I really love the Beautifully Baroque stamp and how well it goes with the Amazing Accent Wheel. Thanks for stopping by to see my Paper Players Guest Designer Card for this week’s color challenge from Ann. Head on over to the blog to see what my other talented team mates have to inspire you with and upload one of your creation to the gallery for us! Have yourselves a great Sunday! 😀

Paper Craft Crew #44 & Sneak Peek

Posted on

Well, Wednesday already, that’s pretty nice! I think every Monday should be a holiday! How are things by you? Things here are good, it rained all afternoon today but we are moving along to a heat wave for the rest of the week. We are supposed to get up into the 90’s by Friday. Once again no real buffer between the seasons. It felt like October here on Saturday and a week later we are in Florida!

Today’s post – Paper Craft Crew Design Team Sketch #44…

PCCCS044 Sketch Theme FD 5-29-2013

A cute little sketch that at first I thought a window would be a good way to go but that was too obvious. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock. The background is a piece of Raspberry Ripple that I stamped with the Woodgrain Background Stamp in Raspberry Ripple. The next layer is some Soft Suede that is embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with some Very Vanilla. All of the images that are punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch are from the new Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set* (can you tell it’s one of my favorites?!). Across the bottom is some paper from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack with some Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and fits with the theme of Father’s Day for this week’s sketch. I really am quite fond of the Postage Collection Set* and I’m loving the colors! Thank you for stopping by to see my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch. I hope you’ll take some time to check out what the other designers have for you over at the blog and upload a card of your own so wee can take a peek. Enjoy your Wednesday everyone! 🙂

I’m a little happier than usual today and we all know why… it’s Friday! Three day weekend Friday! I have a serious amount of crafting to get done this weekend and it’s just as well seeing as it’s supposed to rain through to Sunday. What are you all up to this weekend? I had dinner in Manhattan last night and it worked out great. It didn’t rain until we got to the restaurant and it had stopped by the time we left. We also stopped in Brooklyn to see my friend Brian on the way home. All in all, a great evening!

Today’s post – Mojo Monday 294, a sketch from Julee Tilman…

Mojo294

Some Photopolymer and Paper Pumpkin helped out with this card. The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock and the paper is from the Epic Day this & That Designer Series Paper Pack. I used the Large Scallop Edgelit for the piece of Calypso Coral along the bottom and across the top is some Pool Party 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon. The greeting and the dots are from the Paper Pumpkin Stamp Sets and the Thank You is from the Essentials Stamp Set. For the three arrows and the flag I used the Show & Tell 1 & 2 Photopolymer Stamp Sets. The flag is in a Soda Pop Top, boy am I going to miss them! I think the Photopolymer sets make great additions to any card and the Paper Pumpkin stamps are great for so much too. Thank you for stopping by to see my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card and have a great day! 🙂

Ahh, Sunday morning is so much nicer in the Hampton’s! LOL! It is really relaxing out here, very quiet and woodsy. My friend has a lovely little house on a very quiet street. We went to see another friend yesterday and she lives on Bluff Road, you can see and hear the ocean from her house. It is a different world out here and it’s only an hour and a half drive (off season with no traffic!) from where I live. If you are ever in the area it’s definitely a must see place! Here is a picture of the sunset last night…

Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players and we have a fun CAS Masculine challenge from Ann…

Paper Players 146 CAS Masculine 5-19-2013

I decided to use one of my favorite sets from the Spring Catalog and some of the new In-Colors. The base of my card is Costal Cabana* Card Stock. I used a piece of adhesive cork sheet in the middle and flagged the bottom. The main panel is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar* using the Beyond Plaid Stamp Set backed with some Baked Brown Sugar* Card Stock. The watch is from the Dapper Dad Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The center dial is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar* and cut out with my Paper Snips. For the greeting I used the From My Heart Stamp Set and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. Dapper Dad, I think is one of the best masculine stamp sets we have had and I love the way the watch looks embossed. Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s CAS Masculine Challenge from Ann. Don’t forget to visit the Paper Players blog to see what the rest of the amazing design team have come up with. I hope that you have a very nice Sunday! 🙂

Pals Paper Arts 159

Saturday! My work free, glorious Saturday! How are you today? I’m doing well. I’m off to the Hampton’s this morning with my friend Chantal. She has a beautiful house in the Springs in East Hampton. It’s supposed to be a nice day today and for most of the day tomorrow too. I’ll be blogging from out East tomorrow as we say here on Long Island. As I sat down to make my Pals Paper Arts card I was going through my mental inventory (which is dicey to say the least!) and I remembered an oldie but goodie!

Today’s post – Pals Paper Arts 159, a sketch from Margaret Moody…

PPA 159

The base of my card is Baja Breeze Card Stock, which I apparently hoarded at some point, I have a lot left! The paper is from the Patio Party Designer Series Paper Pack. For the greeting I used the once controversial Carry On Stamp Set, the crown is also from that set. A piece of Summer Starfruit 3/8″ Stitched Sating Ribbon goes across the middle of the card. The two tiny butterflies are from the Collage Curios Stamp Set and are cut out with my Paper Snips. Just a reminder that all of these products will become “Vintage” as of June 3rd, you get some extra time to order as well being able to order from the Spring Catalog and the new 2013-2014 Catalog. This year they did an overlap! Thank you for coming to see my Pals Paper Arts card form this week’s sketch challenge. Enjoy your Saturday! 🙂

Why are Monday’s always so difficult?! Let me tell you that a three day weekend makes them even harder! Oh, and it felt like fall here again today. What is up with that?! Yoo hoo… Mother Nature, we are supposed to be getting warmer now thanks! I saw that someone said they had snow yesterday! Yikes!

Today’s post – Mojo Monday, a sketch from Julee Tilman…

Mojo293

I have to say that so far out of all of the new stuff I’m thinking that the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper* is my favorite! It has some great colors and I love the vintage graphic feel to it. The base of my card is Island Indigo Card Stock and the background is Very Vanilla stamped with the Woodgrain Background Stamp in Early Espresso. I used the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on some Early Espresso on top of that. The piece of Summer Starfruit and the Island Indigo Circle are pierced with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and the flags are made using the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The circle of Designer Series Paper is Soho Subway* and the greeting is from the Label Love Stamp Set* and is punched out with the Artisan Punch*. I made my “bow” with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and the 1/2″ Circle Punch. With a Soda Pop Top in the middle and the No. 1 from the Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set* it completes the card. I managed to use the Postage Collection Stamp Set again and I’m a little bummed that the Soda Pop Tops didn’t carry over. What are you going to miss? Thank you very much for coming by to see my Mojo Monday Sketch card for this week’s challenge. Have a super day! 🙂

Simple Monday

Posted on

Good Monday morning to you! How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic, mostly due to the fact that it was a three day weekend for me! I got all of my little projects done, cleaned the house, spent time with my peeps and crafted for like 16 hours!! Now that’s a good weekend. I have two cards for you today. I made these last night, one was from some scraps I had left over and the other one was just because. Sometime you just need a simple card and that’s just what these two are.

The first one is really simple. I had these triangles left over from something else I was working on and I thought maybe just glue them down the center of a card base of Pool Party and have them point to a greeting. The greeting is from the Best of 25 Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Gray. The triangles are Basic Gray, Crumb Cake and Bermuda Bay. Super simple yet sleek and modern. Triangles are very big right now too so it’s a little trendy!

The second card is a case of a card that I had seen either on Pinterest or a magazine. Simple base and background of Whisper White. The feather is from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay (think I like the color a little?!) and the greeting is from the A Little Greeting Wood Mount Stamp Set. Some Calypso Coral spritzed and a little piece of Epic Day This & That Washi Tape and we are almost done. I happened to have some sequins that match the Bermuda Bay color perfectly so I added three! Again super simple card but it still has some wow factor. Perfect just let someone know you are thinking of them.

Fab Friday 18 & Sneak Peek

Posted on

A very happy to Friday to you all! I’m off today and am going to do some cleaning, crafting and relaxing. I look at a day off as a chance to catch up on some neglected things. Cleaning as of late has been neglected and relaxing is always neglected, the crafting is just a necessity! The weather here today was torrential downpours and then some sun. It was alittle muggy but not cold so I’m ok with that!

Today’s post – Fab Friday Design Team 18 Color Challenge…

Fab Fri 18 Color 5-09-2013

The idea for this card started out with wanting to punch the new alphabet out with the new Mosaic Punch and grew from there. The base of the card is Soft Suede. The middle consists of some Print Poetry Designer Series Paper, Summer Starfruit embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and some Primrose Petals stamped with the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set. The letters are from the ABC – 123 Sketch Alphabet & Numbers Stamp Set* stamped in Raspberry Ripple and punched out with the Mosaic Punch*. I think I have mentioned how fond I am of the new alphabet, it’s a great size and I like the sketched look. Thank you for visiting with me today to see my Fab Friday Design Team card for this week’s color challenge. Check out the Fab Friday Blog to see what the other designers have for you and enter your card for me to see! Have a wonderful day!
