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

Fall Colors…


Hello, Today I had the opportunity to play along with the fabulous color combo going on at The Paper Players.  I have mixed two of my favorite Stampin Up sets to make this card. The relatively new Sunflower set is really fabulous and the older die set called Seasonal Layers I just adore.  I absolutely love these leaves!  You should have seen me frantically looking for them one day about 2 months ago when I thought I lost them.  I tore my room apart.  Then I stopped, thought logically, and started looking in other sets, and there they were!  I was so relieved! The sentiment is from Verve. I used Copics and Colored Pencil as my medium.

Yesterday I spent the entire day reorganizing my studio and I love the way it looks now!  I need to update the photos so you can see it.  I really want to paint the cabinets white someday but that will have to wait till I have more time to convince hubby that it’s necessary.  I also would like to take out the sink. When we bought this house 28 years ago it had two kitchens.  Now it’s covered with a piece of board to hold my Big Shot but you can still see the faucet. It came in handy when I ran my own daycare and I did arts and crafts with the kids.

I hope this day finds you well!  Take care, Nanc’

  1. Nancy this is so gorgeous.

  2. Wonderful bright creation you have made. I smacks of fall and I love the design. Can’t wait to see pictures of your new organization. Wait, you ran a daycare?

  3. Beautiful. Love the pretty sunflower and your coloring looks great. Glad you were able to find your leaves, I think we all do that at times.
    Can’t wait to see photos of your reorganization.

  4. This card is stunning! What a gorgeous use of the colours, and the sunflower looks amazing the way you’ve coloured it! Can’t wait to see the updated craft room – and I think you should just GO AHEAD and paint those cupboards! I would think a craft room sink would be super handy, but maybe that’s just messy me. 😉

  5. So beautiful Nancy! I love that big, glorious sunflower, and the leaves, both stamped and die cut, look wonderful paired with it! I know that frantic feeling of not finding a loved stamp set, so glad you located the stamps you were looking for. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous card with us at The Paper Players!

  6. Beautiful, Nancy! The blossom is so bold, and those leaves…love them!!! Yep, I would have been searching for them frantically, too! Thank you for playing in my color challenge at The Paper Players this week!
