Wedding Wishes

Hello,  Another Saturday has rolled around and this week at Just Us Girls it’s Trend Week and Bobby has suggested we “Frame it.” This was an easy and fun challenge. For my card, I have a mix of; SU for my sentiment, Altenew for my Painted Flowers, MFT stitched Rectangles, and SU again for my stitched Oval.  Then a glittery heart to top it off.

Thanks for stopping by!

Come and join us!  Nanc’

For the Kids

 

Hello, I hope your day is off to a great start and you came by to see what the next topping is over at Seize the Birthday! ‘Wink, Wink!’  Well, we do have a great one starting today that was selected by the hilarious- Lindsey. She has the best sense of humor! Love her!  Anyways, she wants us to focus on the kids!  I knew right away I was going to be using my MFT Dragons and I have linked up the card that I cased here!  I colored my sweet dragon with Copics and a little bit of colored pencils too. The white dots were made with a gel pen. You must run on over to STB and check out the rest of the cards by the DT and our guest Annie as they are terrific.

All products are MFT.

I hope you have a wonderfully creative day! Nanc’

Thank You for Everything and More

I have a card today for The Paper Players (Thankful) and over at The Flower Challenge it’s (CAS). I haven’t played with this Painted Harvest SU set in quite some time and the results are generally quite lovely. I think these flowers look great in any color.  I just love Crumb Cake, White and Dark Red together.

Details: I have a mix of MFT and SU on this card.

Hope you have a creative day, Nanc’

Feather at CASology

Hello, I have a CAS card for you today that goes along with the word over at CASology. The word is Feather. I just love this older Stamp set from Papertrey Ink and I knew right away that I was going to watercolor it to bring it to life. I finished it off with a blue Victorian style strip down the side and some pretty turquoise sequins.  The sentiment is from Verve.

Have a terrific day, Nanc’

A Little JOY!

I am linking up with 2 challenges today! First, Less is More (Sparkle and Matte) and Secondly, Happy Little Stampers (Anything Goes with an option of Twinkle.) I made a few cards similar to these last year for the store and they sold, so I thought I would try again.  The card definitely “Sparkles” in real life and the DP has more of a matte finish.

Card details: The JOY is from MFT, the snowflakes are from Memory Box. The fun DP is from anyone’s guess.(I just love it and have cut off any recollection of who made it.) I made the victorian scallop with my Fiskers cutter.

Hope you are having a fabulous day, Nanc’

The Laundry is….

Is this card and die set not the cutest thing ever? All courtesy of MFT of course. My DIL- Sandra asked me to make a card for her expecting sister using this set, and this is what I came up with. Of course, I snooped around Pinterest for some inspiration.  This is the card that inspired me.  I am pretty happy with the results and hopefully she will be too. The card all started with this Sketch I found over at Inspire. Create. Challenges.  I thought the sketch worked well with the poles of the clothesline. This card makes me dream of a GD of my own someday! Oh, what fun that would be. Of course, if they are still living in California, that wouldn’t be good at all! Hopefully, when the time comes they will live closer! Fingers tripled crossed!

Card Details: All dies are MFT, the sky background was blended with Oxide inks, some of the clothes have small punches for embellishments and or DP.

Hope you find some time to be creative today, Nanc

Designer Paper

I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and it’s time for Word Week.  My word is Designer Paper.  If you are anything like me, you have tons of DP that is being completely neglected. The piece I used on my card today is from Gina K. Designs, and I bet I have had it for at least 8 years. It’s really beautiful and I am so glad I got to put it to good use. We also have a new guest with us this month. In fact, she is a former JUG head.  Please help me welcome Chris Dring to our team for the month of October.  Hey Chris…so very glad you are joining us!

I sure hope you will also consider joining us this week, you might even be chosen as our next Guest Designer.  Give it a try! All the details are over on the blog.

Card Details: DP- Gina K., MFT stitched florals, scallop edge is MFT???, Stitched Circles are SU, Leaf die is Verve, and Nuvo drops.

I hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us! You may even end up being our next Chic of the Week.

Take care, Nanc’

Miss You…

Hi, I hope you are having a great day! Over at Creative with Stamps, they have a new challenge starting and the word this month is Tree. Being a Florida girl I went with the obvious Palm Tree. This card was fun to throw together. I am also going to link it up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!! I have a few interesting card details below:

Card Details: Oxide Ink Background, used the MFT cloud die upside down for my “White-Capped Waves”, the sandhill is sponged and splatted and then cut with an edge-die from Papertrey Ink, Palm Trees and bare feet are Kitchen Sink Stamps, the Miss You is Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc’

With Gratitude…

Hello, It may not feel like fall in my neck of the woods quite yet…or ever…LOL, but it didn’t stop me from getting out my fall decorations today along with my favorite fall leaves from SU to make a card. Before I got to work, I needed to go find some challenge blogs to play along with.  I sometimes feel like a challenge blog addict. LOL If I was retired I think I would start another one myself!  The two I am joining today are The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge, where I have chosen the row going down (FALL, ORANGE, and LEAVES) and Happy Little Stampers (ANYTHING GOES WITH DIES.) Hold onto your hats folks…..I am about to say something a bit rare!! I am extremely happy with the way this card came out.  In fact, so happy that I made two of them, and one I will be sharing later next month with a JUGS challenge.

Card details: SU-cardstock, sentiment, and leaves. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for the leaves. Then did the outline in gold to match the embossed sentiment. I distressed my kraft cardstock with some oxide ink. MFT-banner die and Mod Rectangles. Gold Nuvo drops to finish it off!

So happy you stopped by, Have a creative week! Nanc’

Sunflowers

Hello, Boy was I excited when I saw this gorgeous photo for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls.  Who doesn’t love sunflowers…am I right?  I knew I had this gorgeous Gina K. sunflower stamp just waiting to be colored in my studio.  It’s not my stamp, but one I stamped when I was visiting my friend Barb this past summer.  It’s always fun perusing your friend’s collections and bringing them back home to use on future cards. Before I go I need to say thanks to Janet Ribet for being with us this month! You were a joy to have on board and do amazing work.

Have a great day and hope to see you at Just Us Girls. Who knows you may be our next guest!! Nanc’

Card Details:  Gina K-Sunflower and sentiment, Brick Wall EF-SU, MFT rectangles- both stitched and scalloped, Copic markers.
