Color Week!

Hello Friends, Boy the days are flying by and it’s time for another challenge over at Just Us Girls!  It’s also nearly summer break and I couldn’t be more ready for that! Only one more week! The photo above stinks and the card is long gone, so you will just have to trust me that it’s brighter and looks better in person. I just adore this color combo that Lisa has chosen for us this week.

I hope you will consider joining us over at JUGS!  Who knows you might be selected as our new Chic of the Week too.  Take care, Nanc’

Card details:  Stampin UP dies and sentiment and MFT- Cover plate.

Stencils!

Hello, Hope your weekend is off to a great start! It’s time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls. Angie has asked us this week to use stencils on our card and or project! Easy huh! Who doesn’t have a pile of stencils laying around? The stencil I chose for my card is the heart from Heidi Swapp. This card was made for my Hubster!  He has been very patient with me over the past several months, as I have not been well, and I don’t know what I would do without him. He is a keeper for sure! I do not own this adorable otter from MFT, but when my good friend and fellow STB DT member Barb was down in Florida this past winter, she let me ink up this adorable set and take some images back home with me.  Thanks Barbara!!!  I used my oxide inks for the background, and a mixture of Copic and Prisma Colored pencils for the cute little otter. I am not quite sure how I feel about the clear Nuvo drops…I think I got carried away!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and our fabulous guest Patti Kehl this week, who knows you might be chosen as our next Chic of the Week! Happy crafting, Nanc’

Happy 25th!

Hello, It’s almost the weekend! Woohooo!  Today over at Seize the Birthday our topping is ” It’s Just A Number.”  Before I decided what I was going to do for my card, I got out some of my all time Favorite DP from Stampin Up to help me get my creative juices flowing, and it worked. A friend asked me to make her a card for her son that was turning 25 this month. The anchor is also from SU.  The numbers were made with an olddddddddd Sizzix die.  The button is MFT.

Before I go I would like to welcome our new Surprise Party Guest for the next two months.  She is very well known in the Card making blogosphere…..SonjaK. We are so happy to have you with us!  You must visit her blog, she does fabulous work!!

Take care, Nanc’

A Note to Say…

Hello, We have a fun word this week over at Just Us Girls!  SHADOWS! As you can hopefully see in my picture, I have chosen to stamp with two colors to create subtle shadows under the water, the grass and the leaves. This was a very quick card to put together.  I used my MFT Wonky Rectangles to then cut out my stamped image panel, added a sentiment, and I was done.

I would like to say a HUGE welcome to Patti Kehl !  I am a huge fan of her work and she is such a sweetheart to boot! She is our guest this month over at Just Us Girls…lucky us!! Please help us welcome her by stopping by her blog and leaving her some love!

This card is made with a Stampin Up set called Fabulous Flamingos and the Wonky Rectangles are from MFT.

See you over at JUGS! Nanc’

You Inspire Me!

Hello, Today’s card is for this week’s Just Us Girls challenge.  Vicki has chosen a great photo with many ideas to draw inspiration from.  When I sat down to make my card I focused on the single flower, the repetition of squares and the geometric shapes.  My card is quite a standout from the rest of the teams, however I guess that’s what makes this challenge so fun, everyone’s inspiration is different.  My sentiment says just that!

Here are a few details: Vellum background, stitched squares and sunflower are SU,  Sentiment is Altenew-Crafty Friends, die behind the sentiment is Spellbinders I do believe. Clear Nuvo drops, white gel pen and twine.

Have a fabulous day and please come join us at Just Us Girls, you must check out the rest of the teams cards and our fabulous guest Karren! Speaking of Karren!  You have been an outstanding guest this month! Thanks for being with us!! Nanc’

Anything Goes Birthday @ STB!

Hello Everyone, Hope you are having a good week! The card I have for you today is for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Seize the Birthday! I have used many different companies on this card. Verve- leaves, Hero Arts-sentiment, MFT-banner tags, Altenew-Florals.   Please pay no attention to that horizontal faint line across my card.  I thought it would be wise to make sure the watercolored paper would adhere well to the card base after I put my adhesive on it, so I ran it through my Cuttlebug for added pressure. I read or heard that tip somewhere.  WRONG! BAD IDEA! Thought maybe some Nuvo drops would draw the eye away. LOL  The flowers were heat embossed and watercolored.

Before I go I must say farewell to Kim our Surprise Party Guest. It was an absolute delight having you with us these past two months Kim and PLEASE don’t be a stranger in our gallery, as your cards are simply awesome!

Have a fabulous day and I sure hope you will come on over to STB and join us! Nanc’

I Will Always Be Here For You!

Hello friends,  It’s Saturday and time for our next Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  For those of you that have been following my blog for quite sometime, you are going to think I have seen this card before, well rest assure you aren’t crazy. However, you haven’t seen THIS card before, but you have seen me do this technique and layout a time or three! It is one of my all time favorite cards so why not case myself…..right?? When I saw our Trend over at JUGS was black and white stripes this is the first thing that came to mind. I hope it’s okay that I added the grey too.

The butterfly is from Savvy and the sentiment (in the Adorable Elephants set) and the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles are from the MFT.

Please come by Just Us Girls and share your Black and White stripe creations with us and check out my fabulous team and guest Karren’s creations.  Nanc’

Vibrant Colors!

We have a fun topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is Vibrant Colors and as soon as I got this new Chameleon Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp from my local stamp store, I put the other card I had planned on posting to the side and decided to make a new one. After all, I had a few hours till bed and the post didn’t go live till tomorrow. Besides, I’ve got myself another sinus infection and I have absolutely no voice, so I thought a little stamping might cheer me up.

Here is a pic of the Oxide Inks I used. The stencil is from Heidi Swapp and the Wonky Rectangles is from MFT.  You must hop on over to the Seize the Birthday blog and check out the team’s cards along with our guest designer Kims, they are all so vibrant and fabulous! Nanc’

BTW….I have been messing with my camera’s settings and I am not succeeding.  The card is even more vibrant in person.

Take care!

Oh Baby!

Hello,  Today’s card is for the latest Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I so enjoy playing along over there. I have chosen the center row of Baby, Punch and Ribbon.  This type of baby card is something that I have made many times in the past, but it’s always fun to do.  However, I had a request to make one with a Minnie Mouse on the bib ( which I have not done before) and that is where my punch comes in for Minnie’s black ears. The sentiment is from Verve and I thought we needed to lighten up all the black with some Nuvo Drops. The rest of the dies are either Spellbinders, MFT or Stampin Up. I just adore any type of stitched dies.

I hope you have a wonderful day! My son and Daughter in law are coming into town for a quick visit…so I am pretty happy about that!  Nanc’
