More LOVE!

kissing boothHello Again,  Yes this card is very similar to a previous post of a week or so ago, but I am hooked on this awesome heart template from MFT what can I say. I also wanted to sneak in under the wire and link up to the challenge going on at Curtain Call. I do not own any kissing stamps, however my card was inspired by the colors of the banners in the photo!  Lights and darks combined.  Here is a little bit about this die.  The Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up is a beautiful and inventive Die-namics that will cut a four by six grid of hearts, leaving the centerlines intact. It is so much fun and I am so glad I got it! The letters were cut out on my Big Shot using dies from SU. The small hearts are made with a punch.

Hope you have a wonderful day and just a warning you may see this die cut once or twice again! ;)

I Love You!

 DIH_Feb2015Hi Friends,  I have decided that I LOVE making Valentine cards!  I wish I would have started making these at least a month ago.  I don’t know if it’s the colors, the sentiments, or the hearts… whatever it is I am hooked!  As soon as I saw the February challenge over at the Verve Blog, I knew I would be partaking a few times at least!  On this particular card I did not use Verve Stamps, however that is okay with them…I Love that about them!  I have had both the scalloped circle and the heart laying on my studio desk for quite sometime and decided that would be a good starting point.  The background was made with these really cool heart stamps that I have had forever!  I am so sorry, but I have no idea who makes them as I have taken them out of the package and put them in a CD case.  I know I got them at Michaels so they maybe Recollections.  There is 6 of them and they all have a different pattern. In hindsight I wish I would have stamped them in a color pattern, rather then the way I did.  Oh well! The bow was made with the SU bow punch. The victorian edges down the tops and sides of the card seems to be “My thing” and I do that with my Fiskars cutter.  The I love you sentiment is from Recollections and the inside reads… with all of my heart.  I added some sparkly hearts and stars and I was done!  A very quick card for me!   Go and check out all the talent over at The Verve Blog…you won’t be disappointed, rest assure!

Until tomorrow…I am off to make more Valentines since it’s raining cats and dogs at the moment.  Nanc’

LOVE is the Word

DSC_0445

Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 12.56.20 PMHello Friend, It’s February and Cheryl has the perfect word for you this week over at Just Us Girls.  Yes the word is LOVE!  This can be interpreted in a variety of different cards and or projects so don’t think you have to make a valentine like I did.  Yours just needs to represent LOVE in one way or another.  I think I am the only one on the DT that didn’t put the word LOVE directly on my card, however I have done that in my last two posts and I think you have seen enough of that word for a week at least…wink wink!

The embossing folder is SU and the sentiment and arrow is from recollections …I do believe.

I am also entering this over at the Muse Challenge where my buddy Vicki is the star Muse.  She is so versatile…she tries everything!

CAS(E) LOVE YOU!

DSC_0469

CTS_108Happy Monday,  Hope you had a great weekend.  I have another card for you today using a “NEW to ME” item from MFT that I have wanted forever and finally got!  They have been out of stock for a while now and I was thrilled to seem them back!  It’s the rectangle stitched dies that everyone else has had forever.  I know you are probably thinking that they are not that exciting, but they are to me!! Even my hubby thought I was crazy to be this excited about them.  He’s like….” That’s it, that is all they do?” Oh well, it’s the little things right?  I saw the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch and I knew I wanted to join in the fun.  I came across this paper and I thought it mimicked the stripes perfectly!  Also,  I warned you a few days ago that you will be seeing a lot of these SU letter dies….and here they are again! I staggered two pieces of cardstock to match the sketch and a scalloped SU punch.  Then I used some alphabet stamps to stamp the YOU and some pop dots!

Thanks for stopping by, it truly makes my day!  Nanc’

LOVE@ the Card Concept

DSC_0460

27Hi Friends,  Over at the Card Concept they have a great photo inspiration challenge going on.  I LOVE making cards with Hearts on them no matter whether they are Valentine, Anniversary or what not, so I wanted to make sure I found sometime to play along.  Plus, I got the coolest die-cut ever in the mail on Friday from My Favorite Things and I was so excited to use it.  I think it is AWESOME!!!! Here is a little bit about it. The Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up is a beautiful and inventive Die-namics that will cut a four by six grid of hearts, leaving the centerlines intact. This design allows you to gently bend up each side of the heart to reveal pops of color that are layered underneath.  Whoever thought of this is BRILLIANT I say! I also got another goodie that I will show to you soon. It’s new to me, but been around blogland for ages. I have linked the die up for you if you want to have a look.  I also have used my Stampin UP letter dies again. Warning, you will be seeing these A LOT…A LOT.  I am addicted what can I say!  The inside sentiment is stamped with a Heidiswap stamp I picked up at Michaels last week.  I LOVE it too.

My card style for this one is Clean and Layered for sure!

Here is the inside of the card!

UR Beautiful!

DSC_0455


Screen Shot 2014-12-26 at 12.47.35 PMI am hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s the 5th Saturday of the month and that means it’s Wild Card Week.  In another words…I can select just about anything.  I wanted to make it relatively easy, so this week the challenge is to make your Sentiment the Focal point of your card and or project. Love this idea and when we were making our selections about a month ago, I hadn’t seen this type of challenge in blog land all that much, but now it’s everywhere. LOL  Oh well, that’s okay!  You all have had some practice then.

I used a mix of SU (flower) and Verve ( U/beautiful) stamps to make my sentiment pop!  The R was cut out with my new SU die cut letters! I think my Cricut is going to start collecting more dust now, using these dies and my Big Shot is so much faster. The dots were added by hand. The flower die is from MFT. The rest is self explanatory.

I sure hope you come by and join me at Just Us Girlswe have increased our participants lately and we are so happy about that.(I sure hope it continues!) Remember if your chosen as our Chic of the Week you will be in the running as a possible Guest Designer with us in the future.  Speaking of Guest Designer!  Judy Woodland has been a fantastic GD with us this month.  Her cards have been fabulous plus she is such a sweetheart and visited so many of our contestants blogs and left them some love!  Thanks so much Judy!  We will miss you!  Have a fantastic weekend and see you at JUGS!  Nanc’

Another Birthday at STB!

DSC_0397

STB Anything GoesHello Friends,  I have a rather quick post for you today, using one of the latest stamp sets from Stampin UP.  It’s called Sheltering Tree and I love the set and it’s a re-make of one of the very first Stampin Up sets I ever purchased called Branching Out.   I was fortunate enough to go to a class a few Saturdays ago with a good friend of mine and make some really fabulous cards.   I cannot take credit for the complete design of this card as there was a sample from the demonstrator that we were asked to follow.  I did change mine up a bit, I had to be different. LOL   As you can see I did a terrible job stamping my swing. Grrrrrrrr. I hate when I fudge up a card when I am nearly done.

Anyhoo,  I hope you decide to join us this time over at Seize the Birthday ….where we have an Anything Goes Birthday challenge starting today!  It goes for nearly two weeks so you have plenty of time! My teammates are so talented!  Come by and check it out!

See you there!

For You- Gift Card Holder

DSC_0389

Screen Shot 2014-12-26 at 12.35.43 PMHappy Weekend Friends,  It’s Saturday and it’s time for our Inspiration photo week over at Just Us Girls.  I love making Valentines and this in particular one is going to be sent to my son and stuffed with a restaurant gift card for him to use with his girlfriend at his leisure!  I sure hope he is to busy with his Masters and full time job to read my blog these days.  That would be a huge spoiler! A risk I am willing to take.  I can’t take complete credit for this card idea.  My SU demonstrator had the cool bag diecut at our class last month. It so much fun and easy to put together.  This one is actual made from a piece of cardstock, I think a thin brown paper type of material would be less puffy. All the other details are all made with SU supplies as well.  Hope I have inspired you a tad to make some Valentine cards as well.  If I have been successful please come by Just Us Girls and join us! Our Guest Designer Judy and the team did some great cards!  Come by and check them out!

TPE - ThemeChallenge2I am also linking my card up over at The Pink Elephant where they happen to be having a “LOVE” themed challenge going on an also at TIME OUT Challenges where It’s a Valentine’s theme.   Hope you find sometime this weekend to be creative! Nanc’

Great Sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!

DSC_0365

CTS_106 I am going to pop in today and share with you a quick card that I made for this awesome sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I have been eyeballing this sketch for quite sometime and tonight I had a chance to whip something up.  Both stamps are from Verve.  The heart is called Heart Flutter and the word LOVE that I stamped in the center is from one of my all time favorite sets called You and I.  If your not familiar with Verve I have linked up their store for you!  Colored my hearts with prisma colored pencils and added some sequins.  Had troubles capturing a true color tonight with my camera.  The photo looks a little dull IMO.

Have a wonderful day!

Colour Me- Set of Thank You Cards

DSC_0289

Hello Friends,

I saw the great colors over at Colour Me this week and I wanted to take sometime to join them. My hubby has been in the need of some thank you cards for school and I decided to make them masculine.  The one above I am entering over there and the rest I am just posting for you to take a peek at.  I have a very hard time with mass producing a card and it is something I need to work on.  As you can tell each one is a tad different in someways then the others while still using the same general color palette.  Stamps are mainly SU The Open Sea with some Verve Sentiments thrown in there too.  Love me some Verve sentiments.

Some of the photos are a tad blurry…but I was short on time to re-take them.

Here are the rest of them!
