Paper Craft Crew 91 & Pics

Posted on

I will not lie to you I was tired yesterday! Apparently four hours of sleep isn’t enough for me! I usually am good with four and a half but four just doesn’t work! LOL! I did manage to get a lot accomplished at work and I got to have dinner with my parents now that they are back from London. I’ll admit that I missed them! Mum did bring me back loads of candy and chocolate, I see a diet in my future in a couple of weeks! Did you all like the picture from yesterday of the Catalog cover? You got to see some of the neat new products that they have. I did get to meet some people while I was at the Catalog Premiere. I have two pictures from it that Crystal “Super Stamp Girl” was nice enough to send me. The first one is of her, Sandy and I and the second one is of Laurie, Sandy and I. Yes, I’m a complete geek, that is my Satellite Lane A Cappella t-shirt!

Premiere1 Premiere2

I love when I get to meet the people that I talk to on my blog! Thanks for sending the pictures Crystal!

Speaking of Satellite Lane, I’m off to Manhattan tonight to have some dinner with my friend Kim and then after we are going to head downtown to see them perform at Tammany Hall. Hopefully I’ll get some pictures, it’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Not the best weather but it will be a good time anyway!

It’s Wednesday so that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCS091 Sketch 4-30-2014

As soon as I saw the speech bubble I knew that I needed the Word Bubbles Digital Download! The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. I used my E-Cutter and the Word Bubbles Digital Download to cut out a piece of Bermuda Bay with the Hello cut out from the inside too. Before I adhered it to the card I put another small piece of the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper behind it and the used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up over it. The arrows are from the Label Card Thinlits, I modified them slightly by removing the tails with my Paper Snips. I cut the three triangles from the same DSP with my Paper Snips and adhered all of the pieces with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. Yes, there is no stamping on the card at all! That doesn’t happen very often but the E-Cutter and MDS Digital Downloads make cutting out stuff so much fun sometimes you don’t need to stamp! I really hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch! Go and visit the blog and see what my teammates have done with the sketch and have a try yourself! Thank you so much for coming by to see what I’ve been up to. I hope that you all have a great Wednesday! 🙂

Well, that was a fun event last night! Definitely worth the 2 1/2 hour drive! The presentation was great, lots of projects and demonstrations of the new products. We all got the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog, a copy of the new Stampin’ Success and a new stamp set called Work of Art. We are allowed to post pictures of the catalog cover and those of you that follow me on Instagram got to see it last night but for those of you that don’t here it is!

2014-2015 Catalog

Now that is a great cover don’t you think?! Now the most exciting thing for me is the fact that they have brought back my favorite punch of all time, the Spiral Border Punch! I would like to think that I played a role in that but I doubt it! LOL! Oh, and the sequins, they are pretty cool too! There are so many cool things in it, you are going to love it! 🙂

Moving right along, Tuesday means it time for the Stampin’ Up! weekly deals so here they are…

Mojo343

I do really enjoy the tall & skinny ones. I thought about the sketch on the way home in the car and yes, I made the card last night at 12:00am when I got home! The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Pool Party and a piece of Soft Sky and embossed them with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The larger panel is a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock backed with some Soft Suede and the smaller one is a piece of Etcetera Designer Series Paper backed with Night of Navy. They are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a thin strip of Gold Foil Sheet goes across the middle. My greeting is from the A Round Array Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The feather is from the Feathered Woodcuts Digital Download and is cut out with my E-Cutter from Crumb Cake. I used a Stampin’ Spritzer with Bermuda Bay Re-Inker and a little “Vintage” Champagne Shimmer Paint to color it. A few more Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it in place and there you have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch. I love those Feathered Woodcuts cut out with the E-Cutter and blue, all of the blues, are my favorite color! Thank you so much for checking in today to get a peek at the new catalog cover and to see my card. I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

The weekend is better when it starts a day earlier! I had a nice day yesterday, I did manage to get all of the stuff done that I wanted to. I even got to have lunch with my friend Kim and that was nice. Heather and I went to dinner last night to celebrate a friends birthday with a bunch of people. We had a great time, there was even some fire pit afterwards! Tonight Andrew’s group Satellite Lane is competing in the Regional Harmony Sweeps in Manhattan, that should be fun! Wish them luck!

For today I have my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge. This week we have a sketch from Margaret Moody…

PPA 196

As you all know I have been having lots of fun playing with my E-Cutter. Mainly I have used it to cut out greetings but today I tried something a little different. My card starts off with a base of Real Red Card Stock. My background is a piece of paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, adhered over to the left to go with the sketch. For my greeting I choose a stamp from the Everyday Occasions Card Kit and stamped it in Coastal Cabana on Whisper White and backed it with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar. That large triangle is from the Geometrical Stamp Brush Set and is resized and cut out with my E-Cutter. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals pieces adhere it to the card. It really is quite cool what detailed and crisp cuts you can get using a Stamp Brush Set and the E-Cutter. I love the way the triangle looks over the DSP! I hope that my foray into using my E-Cutter inspires you to give it a try and that you enjoyed today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. Thanks so much for visiting me today, have a super Saturday! 🙂

I know I say it every Monday, that weekend just flew by. I guess what they say is true, time does fly when you are having fun. I had a nice morning in Manhattan and yes I have a few pictures for you. It was quite cold and windy, which of course made it feel much colder than it was. I got in a little early so I got to go to Starbucks and have a cup of coffee and just relax for an hour. I try to get in early so I can do that, I need it. I was on the Upper West Side and walked over to Riverside Drive on 87th Street. When I got to the end of the block and looked left I saw this really neat monument. I later discovered that it is the Soldiers and Sailors Monument to honor those that served in the Union Army during the Civil War. You can click HERE to learn more about it.

Soldiers and Sailors Monument

After I crossed the street and took a picture of Riverside Park and the Hudson River. If it was Summer you would have to go down in the park to take a picture of the river because all of the leaves would be on the trees.

Riverside Park & the Hudson

I decided that I was going to meet my friend Kim for lunch and she is on the East Side. I thought a little exercise was in order so I decided to walk over through Central Park. I don’t know if I have mentioned this but I can never get through the park without getting lost. You may laugh but none of the paths go straight across, they all curve. I decided to stay close to the reservoir since I have had success before! LOL! I came across this little bridge that leads up to the path that goes around it and I thought it was neat. I believe it’s called Bridge #27, I kid you not!

Central Park - Bridge #27

You can see some people running around the Reservoir getting in their exercise too! I’m not a runner, unless I’m being chased! When I came out of the park I was near the Guggenheim Museum, I thought you might like to see that too!

Guggenheim Museum

If you want to read a little more about the Guggenheim you can click HERE. It a fun building right? With all of the round edges along side all of the sharp ones of the other buildings.

No on to today’s post, Monday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge and this week clever Jaydee has a Clean & Simple Spring one for us…

Paper Players #187

I really do love that Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper but I have another favorite that I wanted to use more! My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. I took another piece of Whisper White and used the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut out a window in the lower right corner. The stamped images are from the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set. My flowers are stamped twice, both times in Basic Black, once on the main panel and again on another piece of Whisper White. I used my Blender Pen and some Bermuda Bay Ink to color in the flowers and cut them put with my Paper Snips. The dots are stamped in Encore Gold Metallic Ink randomly. A piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape goes down the left side and Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the flowers to the panel and the panel to the card. My greeting is from the Moments Ago Stamp Brush set and is cut out from a piece of Bermuda Bay with my E-Cutter. Some 2-Way Glue holds in inside the window. The butterfly is a piece of Gold Foil Sheet that I cut out with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit to finish off the card. I really like this card a lot, it’s simple and soft. I love the Bermuda Bay and the Gold together, but then again gold makes everything better right?! I really hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. I also hope you enjoyed the Manhattan pics! Thank you so much for coming by to see what I’m up to! Have a great Monday! 🙂

Paper Players #139 :-)

Hey there! Happy Easter! How is your weekend so far? Mine is pretty good. I got a lot of my projects done yesterday and I will finish them up today. It was beautiful here yesterday, 60 degrees and sunny. I went for a little ride in the car with the top down. It felt so nice to feel the sun and the breeze. It’s supposed to be nice here this morning but get overcast later. Any egg hunts should be completed in the first half of the day! I’ll be having some dinner with my family later, good times.

Today being Sunday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe from Jaydee…

Paper Players #139 Tic-Tac-Toe 3-31-2013

I did the the diagonal from top left to bottom right, although I hit a few of the other boxes too. At least I didn’t try to do them all like the last time! LOL! I did do something a little different with my card today too. For the first time I made a hybrid card using the This and That Epic Day Digital Kit. I downloaded it from Stampin’ Up! and created a project in My Digital Studio. I just laid out some of the embellishments on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ page and shared the project as a JPEG. I opened it in Preview on my Mac and I printed it out. My Paper Trimmer and Paper Snips took care of the rest. The base of the card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock. The background, tickets, chevrons and tag are all form the This and That Epic Day Digital Kit. The tickets and chevrons are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I backed the note tag with a piece of Basic Gray, rounded the corners with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder, and punched a hole in the top where I threaded some Linen Thread. Some Gumball Green and the Little Leaves Sizzlit supply the greenery. I created the flowers using the new A Round Array Stamp Set form the 2013-2014 Catalog. They are stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some Basic Jewels Pearls finish off the card. I love the This and That Epic Day goodies. I’ll get my actual products tomorrow but I had so much fun making the card with the print outs I will definitely do it again! I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Jaydee. Stop by the blog to see what my fellow designers have for you and add your card to the gallery! Thank you for checking in with me today. Once again, Happy Easter!
