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



Hello,  Happy Friday!  Today’s post is for two challenges.  You probably guessed that the above card is for the Twofer Challenge going on this month. I paired one of the cards with the color challenge that is nearly coming to an end at The Paper Players.  I decided on cream as my 3rd color. It’s hard to see the dimension I have on the bottom card, but the clouds and umbrella are raised with pop dots. The cards were made using some very old no-name stamps that I have had for eons, but are a staple in my collection. Don’t pay any attention to the uncentered yellow piece on the bottom card.  I can’t believe I did that. The yellow paper has a texture almost like felt, and there was no moving it once it was down.  The cloud card was colored with a mix of Copics and colored pencils. Believe it or not, I added the clouds after I colored them.  I had originally planned on paper piecing those as well. Hi there- sentiment is from MFT and Just a note-is from Close to My Heart.

Take care and stay well, Nanc’

  1. Great umbrella cards, Nancy. The design on each is different but well thought out. Even off-centered. lol That left room for the sentiment.
