Birthday Blessings…

Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 2.51.56 PMHello Friends,  I adore this week’s colors that Lisa picked out for us at Just Us Girls and thought that is was high time I break out those Spectrum Noir pens and try some coloring again.  This is not something I feel I am any good at, so it takes me some nerve to give another try each time.  This stamp is something I picked up while I was in Lakeland visiting my sister a while back, they have the most incredible local scrapbooking store there.  Isn’t that stamp butimus?  As my mom would sometimes say.  Miss her ever single day!  The sentiment is from Verve.  One of the flowers is doubled and popped up with pop dots. Hope you come check out what my teammates did this week and play along.  Remember if your chosen as Chic of the Week, you will be in the running for a possible chance to be a Guest Designer with us.  You should see what Wanda our guest Designer did this week…it’s beautiful!

See you over at JUGS!

Celebrate!

DSC_0158

I nearly ran out of time to join in the Color Challenge over at The Card Concept, luckily today I had some time to be creative as the linky ends tomorrow!  That was close!  I love Halloween colors, but I opted to think outside the box and create a birthday card instead.  I would think this card qualifies for Clean and Layered!

            20140715_154343_editI was also inspired by this card by Erin @ Erin taylor Designs.  Isn’t it GORGEOUS?  I have been eyeing this card for months now and finally did something about it!  I also tried my hand at sketching with a black pen around my stamped images and I say for the first time I did okay!  The flowers and leaves are from SU-Stippled Blossoms and the butterflies are from the SU- Papillon Potpourri.  The sentiment is something I picked up at Michaels eons ago.  I put a piece of Washi tape on the backside of my vellum so that the word celebrate would be more visible. Heat embossed my sentiment and added some black hemp and some SU dots.

Hope you have a wonderful day and I appreciate you stopping by.  Nanc’

Fall Photo Week at JUGS!

DSC_0164

Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 7.17.07 PM

Hello Friends and Happy Fall,  Today over at Just Us Girls Sue V. has a great Fall photo challenge for us!  I know part of the U.S. is experiencing a change in temps, while us here in Florida will just have to pretend it is indeed fall for a little longer.  Even though our temps are still warm, I had no problems diving into this photo and coming up with a card.  I also want to give a special thanks to our Guest Designer this month Bobby!  She was such a pleasure to work with and her cards were wonderful…make sure you check out her blog!

 I am also linking this card up over at The Card Concept where they have a color challenge going on with wonderful fall colors.  This card is definitely Clean and Layered…it seems to be my thing lately!

The card came to life with this great CAS sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I just adore sketch challenges…don’t you?  I am so glad I got to join them this week!

FMS Final 155-001

Here are a few card details:  Sentiment and scalloped stamp is from Verve. Leave stamps are from Cloud Nine.  All ink and paper is from Stampin Up.  I also used Stampin Up’s tag punch for the outside tag.  I used SU dots, some twine, and a burlap flower as my accent pieces.

I so appreciate you stopping in today and Remember…..If your chosen as our Chic of the Week over at Just Us Girls you will become eligible to possibly be one of our Guest Designers in the month of November!   Good luck and hope to see you there!  Nanc’

Black and White

DSC_0006

Hello Friends,

Over at Seize the Birthday this time around are toppings option is

to use Black and White on your Birthday card!

STB Toppings

 Let me tell you the

Design Team and I enjoyed this one a lot, but a few of the gals said

it was hard to refrain from adding some color there somewhere.  I would

have to agree, I kept thinking if I could just add a punch of red it would be great!

So now it’s your turn to head on over to Seize the Birthday and show us 

your black and white, but remember that our toppings option is

optional, if you just want to share with us a Birthday card that 

would be great too!  

STB

If this card looks somewhat familiar I made one similar a few months ago

and loved it so much I thought I would try it again, but change it up a tad.

The vase and sentiment is from Gina K designs and the white

dots are the negatives left over from a very cool die cut border I got from Verve!

The vase is actual a clear stamp and thought it would be fun to give it some texture

with a stamp I got at a Garage Sale that is shaped like a cube and has

4 different textures on it.  It’s one of those stamps I could never part with…

you know what I mean?

Still working with my camera…and let me just say…if you think buying an

expensive camera will make your photos look amazing over night…think again!

Hope you have a Wonderful Day and I see you over at STB!

JUGS Color Week!

IMG_0018

 Happy Weekend,

Let me tell you I was never so glad to see this weekend.  What a busy week I have had

with the kids returning to school starting on Monday.

I walked about 16 miles at work over the past 4 days,

and I am one tired pup…did I mention sore too?

Anyways,  because of the busy week this card didn’t get made till just last night

however despite the last minute, it came together almost how I had pictured it!

The great colors were picked out by my teammate Sue V. over at Just Us Girls

and let me tell you I really like them!  Aren’t they fun?

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 9.57.32 PM

So head on over to JUGS and join us this week won’t you?

The stamps and or die cuts are from Verve!

Have a wonderful day and I hope to see you at JUGS!

Remember…..If your chosen as our Chic of the Week you will become

eligible to be one of our Guest Designers in the month of October!

Good luck!

 It’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!

and our optional topping this time is Mono- Yellow,

which just means your entire card must exude yellow!

I got this cool candle die cut by Elizabeth craft designs about a month ago and

had this card in mind and it was all I could do not to use it before now! 

Love those candles…aren’t they so cool?

The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Now please come on over to Seize the Birthday and join us, and

remember the topping is optional and you don’t have to use it

you can link up anything that is a Birthday theme and your good to go!

See you over there!

So Sorry You Hurt…

IMG_0002

This card may look very similar to my last card.  I loved the layout and idea so

much and got so much positive feed-back, I thought I would make a similar one.

All stamps used are from Verve Stamps (Leaves, Elegant Flower, and Heartfelt Phrases)

along with some Red mesh ribbon for some added texture.  

The buttons again are from MFT.

The flowers are heat embossed on clear vellum.

I am linking my card up to a few of my favorite Challenges that I stalk on

a regular basis…even if I run out of time to play along.  

There are way to many great stamping sites out there…and not enough time! :)

Wouldn’t you agree?

The Card Concept,

My card today is Clean and Layering…or maybe just a lot of layering. LOL

 Verves Red, White and You challenge!

I decided to use Teal (Bermuda Bay) just like Julee’s beautiful inspiration card.

DIH_July2014

And the Mod Squad where my talented friend Sharyn is hosting

and she asked us to add texture to our project!

That is where my Red Mesh Ribbon comes to play.

 I so appreciate you taking the time out of your day to stop by

my blog and I have the above blogs linked up for you… so what are you

waiting for…go and check them out too!

Enjoy,

Hello Friends,

Over at Just Us Girls this week it’s Cheryl’s turn and it’s week 2

 (Trend Week) and she has asked us to incorporate

woodgrain in our card and or project.

IMG_0003

Here is an additional view!
IMG_0002

Here are a few card details:

I heat embossed my SU flowers with white embossing powder.

The buttons and flower centers are a die cut from MFT that I adore and

don’t use enough, which will be changing for sure!

My Woodgrain panel is covered up quite a bit

but was stamped with SU- Wisteria Wonder.  I did the

masking technique once again and that is how I got the perfect white border around it.

The leaves were left over from a previous JUGS challenge

of the kissing technique.  I fussy cut them out.

Lots of pop dots and a tag made with my SU tag punch and it’s

embossed as well with a scallop…but you can barely see it.

The rest of the  JUGS team along with our new, July Guest Designer-Rebekka Reed

have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog

and check out what they’ve created.  Simply create a card using the sketch and link

it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. 

Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

One more thing!

I am also entering my card over at Colour Me.

However, now that I have read the fine print of their challenge

I may not qualify because I used two shades of Purple on my card

and I don’t believe that is allowed.   It’s all good anyways!

I enjoyed looking at all of the DT’s creations and it

helped inspire me to create mine!  So all in all it’s a Win!

Have a fantastic day and hope to see you over at JUGS!

Hot Shot!

Hello Friends!

Today over at Just Us Girls Maria has chosen a great Color Combo!

I needed a masculine card for a co-worker and knew I wanted to

incorporate basketballs in my design, and a few weeks ago when I saw Maria’s color

choices I thought why not!  

The card is going to be filled with student signatures so I made it pretty large.

 I was a little worried about the

yellow at first, but it worked out pretty well!  My neutrals obviously are

white and black…hope it’s okay that I used both!

The card came together rather quickly…not sure it needs any explaining!

I hadn’t used some of those letter stamp sets in sooooo long…

it was nice to get them inky again!

Screen Shot 2014-05-25 at 3.10.36 PM

Now, Please head on over to Just Us Girls and see what the team did 

with this color combo…I promise you won’t be disappointed!

While your at it PLEASE JOIN us!

If your chosen as Chic of the Week it puts you in the running at

a chance to be a Guest Designer with JUGS!

Hope to see you there!
