Pink Power

Unknown   The idea for this card came to me last night as I was trying to get to sleep,  I should have gotten up and headed to the studio and got to work, as I didn’t sleep well anyways.  I also knew I was going to pair up these TWO great challenges for this piece….Pink Power Diva Dare over at Verve and the Tag You’re it Challenge #8.

My mom was a Breast Cancer survivor for many years, so I try to make at least one card a year to commemorate her.  Unfortunately later on in life she got Ovarian cancer and wasn’t as lucky to beat that battle.  Love and miss you mom!

 

  This afternoon when I was ready to get started I found another piece of my all time favorite DP and knew it would work perfectly!  SCORE!!! Now I knew I wouldn’t fail!  Onto some details:  For this card I used my new favorite border die cut from Verve as well…love those hearts!  It comes in a pack of 3 and it’s a must have…I linked it up for you.  Next, the hearts and sentiment are also from Verve and come in the With Love Set. I used versa mark and stamped them on the background.  The word HOPE is a die cut and is from Paper Smooches.  I cut it out twice for a drop shadow.  The striped paper is actually made with a piece of Washi tape. The sequins are also from Verve and the small hearts are from the inside of the die cut.  The basic tag was made with the SU punch and lots of paper piecing, which is what I love to do!  

I so appreciate you stopping in and your words of encouragement!  Hope you have a wonderful day and I have inspired you a little bit!

Fall Photo Week at JUGS!

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’

Photo Week!

JUGS

 

Hello Friends,

Today over at Just Us Girls Lisa has picked out this great photo for us

for our Photo Week Challenge # 255.

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 2.51.55 PM

I loved it right when I saw it because it has endless possibilities! 

That’s what so cool about a photo challenge, everyone interprets it differently.

When you head on over to Just Us Girls and see what the design team did, 

you will realize how vastly different some of our creations are!  

I also got myself a NEW Camera last weekend so bare with me 

as I figure out how to use it!  I love it, but at the moment it’s

intimidating me.  I haven’t figured out what settings and such

are for inside photos in my light box,

so for now I am back to the great outdoors!

This photo came out pretty well and the cool part

is I didn’t have to adjust the photo afterwards one bit! :)

My card is very simple as this was the first full week back at school

and I have been so beat in the evenings and not able to move

from the couch!  I sure hope this is just a temporary thing!

Alright, I think I have rambled long enough.  

I will see you over at JUGS,

and remember if you win Chic of the week you will be in

the running as a possible Guest Designer for the month of October.

Take care and enjoy creating!

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!

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 9.45.51 PMSue T. picked an easy one didn’t she?

We all have rolls and rolls of this fabulous stuff laying around don’t we!

One of my favorite rolls is the butterfly roll and I paired

it up with the great black striped roll.

The sentiment is from Verve and the Butterflies are Stampin Up.

Now come on over to Just Us Girls and show us your Washi TAPE!

Who Doesn’t Love Ribbon?

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.24.44 PM

 Hello Friends,

I am hosting this week over at Just Us Girls and it’s WORD week

and I have made it super, super simple…

the word I selected is Ribbon!

You can show us a little or a lot!

While your there give a shout out to our New Guest designer for the month of August!

Kristie Goulet!

Now some details on my card!

I have done this technique two other times and I really love it!

Take the negative of any diecut and adhere your ribbon to the

back of the die in any pattern you like!  

It’s super simple and super Cool!

To give it some stability I then sandwich the ribbon between another 

piece of card stock and adhere it to a card base.

The sentiment is from Verve in the Take Note set!

Any questions at all let me know!

Now head on over to JUGS and show us your Ribbon!

Take care,

Nanc’

Just Because…

Hello Friends,

Things have been a little quiet here in blogland due to my BIL passing away unexpectedly.

So, a quick trip to Tennessee and now we are settling in back at home.

My hubby is a trooper and handles things so much better than I.  Love you honey!

It was great to see family, but next time I want it to be for a more happy occasion.

It took me a few days to find my mojo and I finally have something for you that

I am willing to share.  ;)

IMG_0003

PLEASE READ to better Explain my Inspiration! :)

The inspiration for my card all started with this great Tag over at

Tag You’re it Challenge!  You may not think by the looks of my card

that that is where it came from but your just going to have to trust me. LOL

I sure don’t expect to win since I really stretched the envelope,

but I sure want to acknowledge this great new and

very cool challenge site that I am really excited about!

Check out this great tag!

TYIC_2

I tried to replicate the transition of colors by scoring my tag and then

inking it up carefully so the scored lines would still show.

Then I heat embossed my leaves to replicate her vellum ones.

My small tags at the top replicate the small tag on Laura’s.

The flowers are from Stampin UP and my sentiment is all Verve!

One of my flowers is also heat embossed on Vellum.

I am also going to enter this over at Curtain Call where they are 

celebrating their 1ST Anniversary with an

Anything Goes challenge along with some fabulous prizes!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by…I so appreciate all your support

in this wonderful hobby of mine!

Take care!

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,

Praying…

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!

Another Mini!

I am back! With another mini for Mod Squad!

ModSquadBadge

This one is also Gina K. Designs from the A little Something Set

and the sentiment is from You Make Me Smile.

The card measures 3 1/2  square.

IMG_0008

I had a hard time photographing this card because the victorian edge is a little shorter so it doesn’t stand perfectly

so I laid it down so you can see the black edge inside the card. 

IMG_0005

Thanks for stopping by!  I so appreciate you and I am not sure I tell you often enough!

Hope you have a wonderful day and find time to be creative!
