Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



Hello, I hope your day is off to a great start! Today I have a couple of cards for you with Hearts in mind, as I am playing along with the Twofer Challenge this month where they are celebrating their Second Anniversary!  Congrat Darnell and team! You know how much I love this challenge site and I hope you are around for many more years to come.  I am also going to link one of my cards up over at CAS Stencil where they asked us to use a “New” stencil.  The cards all began with this great Die cut from Stampin UP called Bloomin Heart.  It’s so intricate and is pretty all by itself.

Fo the wood grain Valentine card, I added some red florals that come along in the die set along with a LOVE die cut from Simon Says Stamps. I used both red and gold paper for a layered look. The YOU sentiment is from Verve along with the banner die which I doubled as well.

For the floral birthday card, I used this new stencil called Lovely Lace from Gina K. Designs.  I posted a card yesterday using the same stencil and that was the first time I had used it.   I made about five different panels in an array of colors, as they were so pretty and easy to do.  I just love the Pink Oxide ink called Worn Lipstick, don’t you? The heart die is also sponged with the Oxide Ink along with the Victorian border die on the bottom. The YOU letter dies and the solid Heart Die are both MFT. The sentiment is Verve.

Here is the pink one by itself.

I hope you have a very creative day and thanks so much for popping in! Nanc’

  1. Beautiful Twofer cards. I love the pretty dies you used on them.

  2. Two beautiful cards with that lovely heart die cut. Love the heart cut from the wood grain, perfect for a man. TFS

  3. Gorgoeus colours for your background stamping and stenciling, Nanc’! I agree … the colour is gorgeous and looks so fresh paired with white. Lovely card! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil!

  4. That is a lovely die. What a great look on the wood grain for a man, and its delicate and feminine on the white. Thank so much for playing along at Twofer Card Challenge#23.

  5. Two FABULOUS cards Nanc’! That heart die cut is soooo pretty and I love the delicate look you achieved with the birthday card and the worn lipstick ink! I love how the die cut heart looks on the woodgrain card too…perfect for a masculine card! Thanks so much for sharing both of these beauties with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

  6. Way to go! These both look so different suning just one die. Love that you can do that and show the versatility of the die. One so feminine and the other quite masculine but still showing sweetness and love.

  7. I love them both but especially the woodgrain one which would make a fab card for a man

  8. That IS a gorgeous intricate heart die, Nanc’! It looks brilliant both as a positive and a negative and I especially love the look of it “carved” into that wood background and the way you sprinkled flowers and that heart on your design! The bold scripted LOVE sentiment and shadowed YOU panel finish it perfectly! And your positive cut on your feminine birthday design is equally compelling, especially with the overlaid heart YOU panel, and the stenciled lace and Victorian die border! I love the coral color!! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and kind words and for playing in Twofer’s 2nd Blogaversary challenge! Hugs, Darnell

  9. Two beautiful cards, Nancy, I love how you stenciled your 1st card. Such a pretty design and color. TFS with us at CAS Stencil. Hugs..nancy

  10. What a beautiful lacy heart die, Nancy. It looks wonderful ‘carved’ into the wood with the red accents. Cutting it from stenciled cardstock gives such a unique look that ties in with the stenciling on the bottom.
