Colors at MFT

 

Hello, Back again today with the Color Challenge at MFT. I needed some Congratulatory Baby cards for the store and hadn’t even inked up these giraffes as of yet, so here they are. I paired my giraffes with the leaves from MFT-   I didn’t do any blending on the leaves as in the set they have both a background stamp and the outline too. Even the frame and the grass are MFT. The sentiment is Verve.

I am going to link up with Darnell over at NBUS too, as the Giraffes are new to me.

Okay, I gotta run as I got a very late start today! I slept in…WHAT that never happens!

Hope this post finds you enjoying your day! Nanc’

Miss You

This is my second post for the day but I am cutting it down to the wire with the Sketch Challenge over at MFT.  I started using Oxide inks to make my beach scene, but the sand itself is just kraft cardstock.  I should have given it some texture, but totally forgot.  Using my Beach Scene builders Palm Tree, one of the shells from that set, along with a starfish shell from Impression Obsession, I managed to check off the circle elements from the sketch.  The miss you sentiment is also from MFT.  I sure did struggle with the banner.  I made four different ones and still not overly happy with it. The fun scalloped rectangle I believe is Spellbinders.

Thanks for stopping by I sure do appreciate your sweet comments! Nanc’

A Tiny Word…

Hello,  I have a quick card for you today that is a repeat design of one I have done in the past.  When I get a creative block I tend to look through my old posts and recreate a card all over again in different colors. I am playing along with the fun over at Just Add Ink. 

Card Details:  Sentiment is SU, Oxide Ink background, sun die that I made a stencil with- is from Lawn Fawn, the shell dies are from Impression Obsession.

I hope you have a great day!  Nanc’

Hello,  There is a beautiful color combo starting today over at Just Us Girls. Angie really knows how to play nice with colors!  I am going to have to file this color trio away for future use.

Here are some card details: Rose image-Gina K Designs, Sentiment is Altenew, I used a Copic Marker to achieve my pointillism background. The enamel dots are from SU. I used a mix of Copics and Colored pencils to color my image.

Thanks for coming by and hope to see you over at Just Us Girls playing along with these amazing colors. Nanc’

It’s hard being apart.

Hello, Today was a first for me and for my hubby.  Instead of being in Massachusets supporting, hugging and consoling a brother and brother in law who just lost his youngest child, we had to watch via a computer screen. I am thankful for technology, don’t get me wrong, but I am mournful yet again with something else we can blame on COVID 19.  It just sucks to put in bluntly!  The service was very nice and personable. Brad was loved by many and it was evident as the pastors guest and family spoke.  I take peace in knowing that he is suffering no more.

Above is the card I sent to Dale. I hope when he opened it he felt the love inside.

Rest in peace Brad you fought a good fight!  You will be missed. Nanc’

Card Details:  SU-High Tide, Oxide inks, white paint.  A case of this card here, but it is way better than mine.

Rainbow Colors

Hello,  I hope your day is off to a great start! We have a great topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday!  The topping is rainbow colors.  A couple of weeks or so ago I received this great new die and stamp set from SU called Celebrate Sunflowers and I thought this would be perfect to execute this idea I had rolling around in my head.

I may have made this a bit more time consuming than it needed to be as I cut my sunflower out first and then colored the petals with my SU watercolor brush and various inks. I thought I would have better control of the colors this way. I thought the bottom of the card needed something so I have this fun double scallop from MFT and of course, my go-to sentiment is Verve.   I few SU enamel dots in primary colors and I was done.  CAS is a challenge for me but this time I came out on top! LOL

I am joining is NBUS today too! Since this was the first time I used my sunflower set.

Please come see all the various types of rainbow designs over at Seize the Birthday and join us! Nanc’

Let’s Celebrate You

Hello, I have a card today for two challenges.  I paired the colors from The Paper Players with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I still am enjoying my new SU set called Celebrate Sunflowers. In fact, my entire card is from SU. A little Copics and then enamel dots finished it off.

Thanks for popping in and I hope this post finds you well! HUGS, Nanc’

Just for You

Hello, I had some time yesterday to make a card for the new CAS(E) this Sketch…sketch.  I am loving a new to me stamp set I got from SU called Celebrate Sunflowers.  I guarantee you will be seeing this stamp set and or matching die set a lot in the near future. it is really fabulous. I started off coloring the sunflowers with my Copics with a touch of colored pencils too.  As for the butterflies, those are from Pretty Pink Posh and the sentiment is from MFT. I had this piece of cardstock already stamped with the text from Simon says Stamps waiting to be used.  As I was laying out all my pieces, I thought it looked a little plain all by itself. Mind you, I had already glued it to the back of the black frame when I decided to ink it up.  I used a piece of acetate, made myself a mask and carefully inked it with a bit of Oxide inks. I think that did the trick and made it far more interesting.

I will also be linking this up over at Darnell’s NBUS.

I hope you are having a wonderful day, however you have chosen to spend it. Nanc’

Die Cut- a Window

Hello,  Today’s card is for the Just Us Girls challenge of Die-Cut and Window. I didn’t get a photo of this card before I sent it to my DIL, so she took one for me. It wasn’t what I had in mind but didn’t want to ask her to try again.  The cats are from MFT and colored a long time ago with colored pencils. I think my coloring skills are better now and would love a do-over. LOL. I added the dots as I thought the card was too simple. I need to try to embrace CAS as I think it looked better before. LOL

Come by Just Us Girls and see what the team did for their windows this week.

Hugs, Nanc’

Wedding Card

Today is Monday and instead of reporting to work, I am beginning a new chapter in this thing called life.  Now I can say I am “officially” retired.  So far so good! LOL My favorite part of my day is between the hours of 6-8 am. During that time you can find hubby and I enjoying the quietness of the new day while sipping our coffee and chatting about whatever we find on our electronic devices that we find worth sharing with one another. There is no television and it’s just peaceful. Now, this doesn’t have to occur on just weekends, holidays, or summer vacation but each and every day, and I am really excited about that! Squeal!

Speaking of new beginnings…Nothing says new start more than a wedding card and that is what I have for you today!  I am playing along with The Paper Players challenge today.

I made this card using Stampin Up products for the puzzle pieces, rectangle die, and sentiment.  The bow tie which is a tad hard to see is from Paper Smooches. It’s part of a bow missing the ribbons hanging down. For the girl puzzle piece, I used very small pearls.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Hmm….what shall I do?  Nanc’
