Feel Better Soon!

Hello Friends,  It’s Photo Week at Just Us Girls and I only had a bit of time to whip something up for this challenge.  I didn’t have any watermelon stamps or card stock so I decided to base my card on the colors and clouds instead.  I can’t say I love it, but we can’t love them all can we? I wanted a soft background to mimic the sky in the photo and the green is the rind of the watermelon.  I then decided to throw some water on the Oxide inks as well.  I think I got a little heavy with my drops. LOL

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see what my teammates and guest Aileen have done! We would love to have you!  Nanc’

Supplies: Sun and Clouds-Lawn Fawn, Stitched label-MFT, Sentiment-SU, and Oxide Inks

Splatter at STB!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a great day so far! I had such a great time making this card with some of my favorite stamp sets.  I had the PI girl colored with colored pencil for quite sometime and I am so glad I waited till after I got my Oxide Inks to put the card together. My new inks matched perfectly with the colors I had chosen to color her with.  Love when that happens…don’t you?  This card is for our challenge over at Seize the Birthday for the next two weeks.  The topping I chose this time around is Splatter! It’s such a fun technique that generally gives such great results! I feel like it kicks up the card a notch or two. Of course after I made my splats, I remembered I had a punch that might be fun to use as well and then that is how the paint brush came to be.  The perfectly uniformed round spots were made from a stamp from Gina K.

I think I rambled long enough! Hope you will consider joining the team and I at Seize the Birthday…we would love to have you! Nanc’

Supplies: Oxide inks,  MFT Stitched rectangles, stitched banners and PI-, Sentiment is Verve, Paintbrush is Paper Smooches, circles-Gna K.

Twins!

Hello Friends,  Hope you are having a great day!  I needed a baby card for a friend who’s daughter was having Twins so I combined that need with our Color Week at JUGS, where I happen to be hosting for the second week in a row! There is so much I adore about this card; Polka Dots, stitched stars and elephants! How can it get any better!  This adorable elephant is from Verve! He is one of my all time favorite go to stamps for Baby cards!

I would be tickled if you would come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week! Take care, Nanc’

YOU & ME

Hello Friends,  I desperately needed to make some cards for the store and I needed some inspiration, so I stopped by Color Throwdown and their colors was just what I needed to get inspired.  I promise you this card is indeed dark pink and not red as it appears. In fact the card stock is from Stampin Up and is called Melon Mambo.  Hope you are having a wonderful day today and find sometime to get crafty! Nanc’

Supplies: Sentiment is Technique Tuesday, Hearts and letters are MFT, DSP-Gina K.

Red, White and You!

Hello Friends,  I just got back from a fabulous vacation in Colorado and I am already trying to figure out where we are going for our next big trip.  We are going to Seattle and Victoria Canada in a couple of weeks as well, and I can’t wait! It’s been way to long since I hugged my boy!  I am really getting spoiled this summer!  Okay, onto the real reason you stopped by.  Over at Seize the Birthday our next Topping is Red, White and You.  I thought it was appropriate since we just finished up our Independence Day celebration here in the U.S. a few days ago. The YOU part of the challenge means the Color of your choice.  As you can see in the photo I chose Black as my third color.  I made this card for my future Daughter in Law’s Birthday last month and I hope she liked it.  You have to read it correctly…SMILE…It’s your Birthday…It’s your Birthday.  Not sure you understand where I am coming from with that since we have no audio…but she did. LOL

Please come on by STB and join us and while you are there help me welcome our new Surprise Party Guest- Lindsey Martin-Penny.

Take care, Nanc’

Supplies * MFT Flowers and banner, SU- Stitched Circles, Verve sentiment, the word Smile is something I picked up at Michaels.

A Different Look…

Hello Friends,  If today’s card looks similar to you it’s because it is in fact similar to one I posted a few months ago. I was in the need for a belated Graduation card so I decided to CASE myself.  HERE is the original one if you are curious. I like this one a tad better. It also so happens to fit the challenge over at The Paper Players this week so a win win for me.

*Supplies- Boat and the stitched banner is Verve, Sentiment and paper is SU, The stitched panels and button is MFT, and that cloud is Lawn Fawn.

Have a Fabulous day! Nanc’

Hello!


Hello Friends, We have the PERFECT photo for you this week at Just Us Girls!  It spoke to me as I am smack dab in the middle of my Summer Vacation from school. This card didn’t end up as I planned it in my head but it will do.  Don’t you just love those little flip flops?  They are from Impression Obsession. The beach ball, sunglasses and bag are from MFT. The sentiment is something I picked up at Michaels and the Sun die is from Lawn Fawn.

I would also like to thank our Guest for being with us this month!  Estelle…I hope to see you back in the gallery from time to time we do enjoy your work!

Please join us this week at JUGS and show us what summer vacation means to you! Take care, Nanc’
