Birthday….Heart

Hello Friends,  It’s time for a brand new challenge over at Seize the Birthday. I was short on time this week because I had so many requests at work for Valentine cards (which is a good problem to have) and I had to do something super quick. So I opted out of our topping option (cupcakes and candy in case you were wondering) and headed straight for old reliable! LOL  Truth be told, I made a card with cupcakes on it a week ago and it was god awful and I just couldn’t post it!

STBSo I promised you wouldn’t see anymore SU hearts, well I may have lied a little, so please forgive me!  We have a brand new Surprise Party Guest with us this month over at STB and her name is Jacquie Southas, please come on over and welcome her and see what my talented team did with their sweets!

Take care and happy crafting!  Nanc’

More Hearts!

First off, I guess I should apologize for this post in advance! YES, you were forewarned a few days back that I was madly addicted to this Blooming Heart Die from SU, so I don’t feel too bad about it. LOL This first card is being entered over at The Card Concept where they have this great Valentine cookie image with flowers on top. This time I decided to layer the two single heart dies together with out placing one back in the negative die like I had been doing lately, and I really love the look of it! I would call my style on this card Clean and Layered.

I decided I better put the next ones in a collage for you to speed things up a bit.

Love You-Happy Birthday

DSC_0047Hello Friends, As promised, here is another card using my new SU Bloomin Heart Die and matching stamp set. So far I have made about ten cards with this die and I am not sure I am quite ready to pack it up as of yet.  This particular card was inspired by the following challenges.  I think the silver paper really stepped this card up a notch.   If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask.  Now it’s time for a Football Game!  Go Broncos, but I really wouldn’t mind if the Panthers won either.  I personally just like Manning better over Newton. I hope it’s a good game. I know there will be a commercial about the “Alexa” which is the amazing department my son is involved with at Amazon, so I am excited to see that one for sure!  Take care, Nanc’

Valentine is the Word!

DSC_0043Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 1.52.53 PMHello Friends,  It’s February already and LOVE month and Vicki has chosen the perfect word for us over at Just Us Girls. The word is Valentine.  Just a few days ago my Stampin Up order came in and I am over the top thrilled with this New Blossom Heart Thinlit die-cut and matching stamp set!  I was having so much fun the other night that I made four cards using these sets. That never happens at one sitting.  Isn’t that heart the prettiest thing you have ever seen?  I am seriously in Love with it for sure!  I am warning you now, you will be seeing this a lot over the next few weeks, heck maybe the next month!

I am also linking my card up over at Sunday Stamps since they are the ones that inspired this GREAT color palette.  Next, Mod Squad just so happens to be having a hearts and flowers challenge.  Last but certainly not least, The Friday Mashup has a Valentine theme.

Before I go I want to welcome a new Guest Designer with us over at Just Us Girls.  You have seen her awesome work in blog land, I am most certain.  Welcome Pamellia Johnson!  We are thrilled to have you with us this month!

Take care,  Nanc’

Celebrate Baby Girls

DSC_0034

pp280Hello Friends,  It’s Hump day for me…Wooohooo! I can’t wait for Friday to get here, Idk about you!  The office staff at school asked me to make a quick baby card for one of our employees. I didn’t have a whole heck of a lot of time, so I through this together last night.  Not in love with it, but they were, and that is all that really matters. The one button die (from Verve) at the bottom of the card came out red when it’s clearly pink. The sentiment is a mix of this and that and the cute little giraffe is something I picked up god knows where. I love the look of taking my rectangle stitched panels and putting them back together like a puzzle, however the panels have a little gap that I am not quite happy with on the bottom and I am hoping the word GIRLS has covered it up a smidgen.

I am linking my card up to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at the Paper Players.  I used the horizontal middle row of….Die cuts, Pink and Girly.

Thanks for coming by and seeing what I have been up to…hope you have had sometime to be creative too.  Nanc’

CTS_157Hello Friends,  I hope your week is off to a great start, mine sure is!  I have had quite a lot of opportunity  to get my craft on as of late, which I have thoroughly enjoyed.  My Silhouette Cameo and I are getting to know each other quite a bit better and I think I am in LOVE. LOL  So the card I have for you today was designed using my Cameo and also around the awesome sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  As soon as I saw the Design Teams samples I knew I wanted to play along.  I was swooning over the GD-Kay Miller’s card.  It is just totally awesome!  I started out cutting out the word create using my Cameo and the sun and the clouds and bright green arch were all made with various die cuts.  The stamped and heat embossed sentiment is from Close to My Heart.   Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you also have the opportunity to craft real soon! Maybe if I become real brave or get a nice photo I will show you some of the shirts I have made with my Cameo too.  Take care, Nanc’

Wild Card Week

DSC_0462.jpg

Screen Shot 2015-12-06 at 9.57.59 PMHello Friends, It’s time for another great challenge over at Just Us Girls.  Can you believe it’s the 5th Saturday of January already?  I honestly don’t know where the time goes.  We are also half way through the school year and starting the third quarter.  Which we affectionately refer to as the ” Sink or Swim Quarter.”  It always holds true too!  Anyhoozal…..Since it’s the 5th Saturday of the month it’s wild card week and Chris has a Tic Tac Toe challenge for us.  I don’t know about you but, I kinda like them. I have chosen the column straight down the middle with; die-cut, stamps and flowers.  Infact, I had so much fun that I made two more cards after this one.

Card Details: I was kinda all over the place with this so if you need any info please ask!  Now come on over to Just Us Girls this week and pick a column or row for Tic Tac Toe and while your there check out what the team and our Two Guest Designers did this week.  Speaking of Guests.  I need to thank Vicki and Deepti for being with us, we sure have enjoyed having you both.

Take care,  Nancy

Sketch at Seize the Birthday

DSC_0025

Screen Shot 2015-10-23 at 8.25.51 PMHello Friends,  It’s time again for a new topping over at Seize the Birthday and this time around we have a sketch for you to try, but remember if you don’t want to use the topping you don’t have to, just make sure your card and or project is birthday related.  I also want to take a minute to thank Tanja for being such a super Surprise Party Guest! We love your work Tanja and it’s been a pleasure having you with us!  Now my card was a lot of fun to put together.  I started off using the smooshing technique with my acrylic blocks on watercolor paper. I think I got a little carried away and smooshed a little much, but I still received some cool results!  I used some left over pieces for my flowers.  The flowers were also heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The rectangle and circle dies, the vellum leaves, and the heart border die reallyhelped this card come together.  If you have any other questions…let me know!

Hope you will take a minute and come see what my fabulous team did this week at Seize the Birthday!  Take care and find sometime to create…it’s good for the soul!  Nanc’

My Greatest Joy!

DSC_0028

Hello Friends,  Hope you are having a good day, however you wish to spend it!  This card will be on it’s way very soon to my son, inside his V-day care package. I sure hope he doesn’t decide to visit my blog any time soon. LOL Here is a photo of the original card and let’s see if you can see why I had to fix it!

DSC_0020

I didn’t even realize till I was making the post. LOL  And NO, I do not drink when I craft…but maybe I should. The card was made with the negative of the new Heart die from Stampin UP.  It’s so very pretty and on order, however I saved the negative piece from my card club class, as I thought it was so unique.  Sure glad I did! The sentiment is yet again from that Tuesday Morning set that I have been raving about! I am entering this card over at the Mod Squad challenge where two friends of mine are duo-hosting and over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is RED!

You Are My Anchor

DSC_0006

Screen Shot 2015-12-06 at 9.34.33 PMHello Friends, It’s the weekend and time for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls!  Sharyn is our hostess and she has picked a great photo for us.  I wish my bedroom looked like that photo, looks fresh, clean and inviting!  I wanted to use my Cameo again, so I decided it would be the perfect tool to cut out an Anchor. The sentiments are partly from that Tuesday Morning Love set that I have been raving about, and the word anchor was stamped with some alphabet stamps.  The great chevron background was done with a SU Embossing Folder and my inked up brayer.  I first inked the EF and then wasn’t happy with the results so I just went ahead and inked the card stock some more till I achieved some good results.  Please come see what the Design Team and our two-Guest Designers did with the challenge…you won’t be disappointed!   If your caught in the middle of some of this terrible winter weather…stay safe! Nanc’

DSC_0011I went back to my desk to clean up and decided to make another quick card with the other piece of chevron I had made. :)
