You are not seeing double…..

DSC_0237

The embossing looks half done which in fact isn’t true if you look at the bottom photo.DSC_0236

CTS_98MIUMlogoYou are not seeing double and do not adjust your computer these cards appear to be different, when in fact they are the same card. I was messing around with my new camera today and had a devil of a time getting the true color of the card stock on my photo.   The one that appears to be more raspberry is in fact the closest I could get to the real deal.  Please tell me you have these problems with certain color tones?  The cardstock is SU’s Raspberry Ripple. Over at Stamp TV they have a challenge just about ending where you were asked to use two colors.  My colors were silver and raspberry. Hopefully the gray card stock since it comes from silver will not disqualify me.  I also paired this challenge up with this awesome sketch from CASE this Sketch.  I really loved it and will definitely be using it again.  I had a ball making this card, but not quite as much fun photographing it……LOL  All stamps are from Gina K Designs and I believe it’s obvious but I used silver embossing powder as well.

Thanks for checking up with me today….I really appreciate it more then you realize!

Find sometime to be creative….we all need more of that!  Take care,  Nanc’

More Minis!

Hello Friends,

I had so much fun creating my mini trio of cards the other day for the Mod Squad Challenge

and I couldn’t wait to make more!  Although this time I made single ones instead.

ModSquadBadge

Here is the first one!

All stamps are Gina K designs and the set is called Snowflake.

The card measures 3 3/4 x 3 1/2

I am not sure you can see the fine dusting of glitter I put on the center snowflake.

And tell me is it strange to make black snowflakes?  I kinda liked it! LOLIMG_0003

Okay now I am off  to go get my other mini ready to post!

Don’t go far!

I LOVE it!!!  I have it linked up for you!IMG_0001

I must say I was pretty happy with this one…which is nothing I get to say all to often!

Great Inspiration Photo chosen by my Teammate Marisa over at Just Us Girls.

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 6.27.58 PM

It all started with this great clean Sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS Final 142-001

Then I wanted to make sure I played along with the Stamp TV Monday Challenge

which is being hosted by my BFFIBL and fellow teammate times 2 Sharyn!

By the way BFFIBL stands for ( Best Friend Forever In Blog Land) Teehee!!! :)

STV Challenge

Now onto some Personal FUN I have had over the past month!

My good friend Sue Lelli and I had the opportunity to take a class together that was

being taught by Teresa Collins. She shared with us some of her new products that

were going to be featured the next day on HSN.  I had a really great time!

She was very sweet and very talented!

Horrible photo of me!  YUCK!

Then recently I also got to see a very dear and so amazing friend of mine and fellow

DT member over at Seize the Birthday, JoAnn Burnham.  She has been through a rough patch in life and

is the most faithful, resilient, and upbeat person I have ever met.  I admire her more now then I did before!

We met for lunch, took a Stamping class at a local craft store, and then went shopping.

It was a wonderful day and one I will cherish!

Thanks for letting me share some personal stuff too!

Now, Please head on over to Just Us Girls and see what my talented teammates did this week!

Talk about some serious Eye Candy!

We also need to say goodbye and thanks to our wonderful Guest Designer

Shirley -Bee.  You were a joy to work with!

Take care,

My friend Karen is hosting this week so I wanted to make sure I played along.

I got it done just in time! Phew!

She asked us to use an image that you would usually use for a masculine card, but make it a feminine card.

Clever idea huh?

Some card details:

Card stock is Stampin Up

Stamps: All Gina K- Inspiration Mosaic and Out West 2

SU-Embossing Folder

Have a wonderful day,

Bleach and a JUGS Sketch

IMG_00081

Hello Friends,

I had a great time creating this card for two different challenges.

I started with this awesome sketch from Cheryl over at Just Us Girls

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 6.56.07 AM

and combined it with a Technique challenge over at Stamp TV hosted

by my friend Judy.  She has beautiful samples over there for you to see!

mixitupmonday

She asked us to use bleach on our creation.  

Here is a video from Gina K. for you to watch if you have never tried this before.

I really recommend it…it’s so much fun with endless possibilities. 

I pretty much did exactly what Gina did on this video!

Just be really really careful not to get it on your work space or clothes.  Speaking from experience. LOL

So come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week for our color challenge!

You won’t be disappointed when you see what the team has done along with our

New Guest Designer Barbara Campbell!

Remember…..

If you Become ” Chic Of the Week” you are in the running as

possibly being a Guest Designer with us.

Have a great day and find some time to create,

Nanc’

scenery backgrounds, but I sure enjoy trying!

Stamp TV Release Party Re-cap!

Hello friends,

Last night over at Stamp TV It was release time and I finally got to share

with everyone what I did with their newest stamp sets as a featured Guest Designer this month.

 Here are each one of the Fabulous Stamp Sets and a link for you on how

to purchase them for yourself!  I had such a great time working with my fellow guest designers-Judy and Karen.

The pair of you did FABULOUS, and it was so much fun working alongside you both behind the scenes these past few weeks.

I find you both so talented and funny, and am thrilled that we have become better friends!  Of course, none of this would

have been possible, without the guidance of Lee Murphy the Stamp TV Design Team Member.  You rock Lee!

Here we go…time for my cards!

The first set was designed by Beth Silaika.

 It’s called Fleur di lis.

 I really LOVE it!  So versatile with great patterns!

IMG_0014

Next, we have Debbie Corbari with another fabulous Diva! Golf Diva.

Really happy with the way this came together!  So much fun to make!

IMG_0012

Theresa Momber set coordinates well with her other Out West 2 stamp set!

IMG_0008

This was the most challenging for me…but I wasn’t about to give up!

 Now we have Rupa Shevde with this beautiful set featuring tons of

vases and florals called Flowers Bloom.

LOVE this set!

IMG_0009

Last but certainly not least, we have Melanie Muenchinger’s set called Lots of Letters 2.

IMG_0011

The sky is the limit for this set! A must have in your stamp collection!

Hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been up to the past few days!

Stamp TV Challenge…

STV

Hello Friends,

Today the card I have for you is for a Mix it Up Monday Challenge over at Stamp TV.

My friend Karen is hosting this week so I wanted to give her some moral support and join here,

plus I had these really cool paper clips on my desk and have bee dying to use them.  So when

I saw her challenge to use metal of some kind it was meant to be!

I also wanted to show you where my inspiration came from to make this card!

A dear friend of mine and oh so talented stamper sent me this wonderful

tag the other day and I put it in my studio right where I could see it

and admire it!

000_3694

I told her I loved it when I saw it on her blog so she sent it to me!

She is such a dear sweet person and I am so glad our paths have crossed!

Here is a link to her Blog Card Therapy....she is a Genius at Mixed Media

go and check it out and leave her some love!

Now,  Here is a link over to Stamp TV so you can join the challenge there as well.
