Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 3.24.24 PMHello Friends,  Are the weeks flying by or what?  Here it is Saturday already and time for yet another challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It happens to be Color Week and Lisa is our hostess. My card that I have for you today is a CASE from a dear blogging friend of mine Hannelie Bester.  She is so very talented and so sweet too! It you are not familiar with her work you can find her blog HERE!  You won’t be disappointed. She has a unique CAS style that is only hers and I am in awe of her talent.  She sent me this card below not that long ago and I was so intrigued on how she used brads and wrapped the twine behind the card stock, that I decided to give it a go. Her card looks ten times better than mine, but I sure enjoyed the process.  The flower is something I have had for eons.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up and I used glossy accents in the middle of each flower too. The card looks better in person, trust me.

Now, if you come on over to Just Us Girls this week and check out the teams work along with our Guest Colleen, I can assure you will be inspired!

Take care,  Nanc’

Water- Colored Wedding Card

DSC_0127Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 2.58.55 PMHello friends,  I made this card for my niece’s wedding that I actually am attending today!  Please pray for no rain as the wedding is outside! As you can tell it’s Trend Week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has asked us to do some Water-Coloring, which I really do enjoy.  The Water-Colored flowers are from Stampendous, the sentiments are a mix of Stampin Up and who knows what. LOL  I am having a “Dory” moment.

Now, you have got to rush on over to Just Us Girls and check out that rest of the cards from the DT and our Guest Colleen…they are all incredible!  See ya soon! Nanc’DSC_0128

Anything Goes at STB!

DSC_0106

STB Anything GoesHello Friends,  I am going to have to make this a super quick post today as it is my birthday today when I am writing this and hubby is taking me out to dinner.  I was short on time so I cased THIS fabulous card that I found on Pinterest!  I  started off by sponging the background, I then stamped the balloons on the card base in black.  Then I stamped them again so that I could watercolor them and pop them up for some dimension on the card base. I added some splatters of color, some stars, shadows on the balloons,the sentiment, and I was done.  I love the way it came together!  Sentiment and balloons are from Verve.

Before I go I would like to welcome the talented Monika Reeck to our team, she will be with us at Seize the Birthday for the next two months as our Surprise Party Guest!  Welcome Monika, I am so glad you are with us!  Have a great week everyone and if you have some time to be creative, I hope you will consider joining us over at STB for our Anything Goes Challenge!  Just remember it has to be a birthday project!

Mojo Monday

DSC_0142

mojo459Hello there,  I nearly missed the deadline for Mojo Monday and the card has been done for about a week now. I have a great excuse though, as I am now back to work!  To say that the summer went by fast is a huge understatement! As you can see I have another Christmas card to share with you today!  I adore making Christmas cards, don’t you?  This card was made using a variety of Verve stamps. The sets are called….Delightful and Delicious, Ornamental Christmas, and Celebrating You.

Hope you are out enjoying your weekend,  Take care, Nanc’

Water

DSC_0115

Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 2.58.55 PMHello,  It’s Word Week over at Just Us Girls and the word Sharyn has for us is Water.  I made the above card for a very dear friend and fellow design team member Judy, as it was just her birthday a little over a week ago.  The other girls and I couldn’t believe she was 70.  Age is just a number right?  I hope she loved my card as much as I loved making it for her.  I have to give credit where credit is due. Here is the terrific card I cased.  You can’t tell in my photo but the bubbles, the seahorse, and the fish all are covered in glossy accents. I so wanted to write Birthday Fishes on my sentiments but after 5 attempts with tiny alphabet stamps, it just wasn’t meant to be.  The stamps are a collage of this and that, so if you have any questions just let me know! The seahorse is a die- cut that I sponged, the background is sponges as well and the waves are a MFT die. Oh, and the fish were colored with colored pencils.

Before I go, I would like to welcome Colleen Foelker our Guest Designer to the team!  I have been fortunate enough to meet Colleen in person and she is as sweet as she is talented! Welcome Colleen, we are thrilled to have you joining us this month!

Now, please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the rest of the team has been up to this week!  Take care,   Nanc’

A Jump on Christmas Cards

DSC_0140

Hello Friends,  I hope this Monday is finding you well!  Over the last couple weeks I have been making Christmas cards.  I challenged myself in January to make 4 Christmas cards a month from January till November, all I can remember from last year is it felt like I was climbing a mountain, having to need them all so quickly.  Well, January was a good start and I will leave it at that. LOL  I am happy to report that I am nearly back on track an only need a few more by months end.  The above card is one of the ones I actual made yesterday. I know this die set from SU( Hearth and home) is from last year’s release and all over Pinterest, but would you believe I have had it since then and not used it?  I adore the brick EF from SU as well.  It so much fun to ink up with a brayer. I have a piece of acetate on my window, but it doesn’t show up in the photo.  Instead of using the Stamp set (Snowy Scenes) that goes with this die, I decide to cut out a tree with card-stock using my Cameo and then spattered it with some white paint. Prior to that I sponged a nice sky background and cut out a rolling hill with a Lawn Fawn die.   The greeting is from the above SU set and the leaves were made with a MS punch.  The bow is an awesome die from Paper Smooches.

ModSquadLogo202I am linking this card up to two challenges:  Mod Squad where it’s Christmas in July and Merry Monday where they are currently on break but have left the linky open so we can play with some of the past challenges we have missed.  I am using challenge #202 Let is Snow.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Let’s Hear it for the Girls!

DSC_0113

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 6.21.13 PMHello Friends,  It’s my turn to be your hostess over at Just Us Girls and this week it’s all about us GIRLS!  I have challenged you to make any type of girly card and or project of your choosing!  Simple huh?  I also need to take a minute and give a BIG THANKS to Carol for being such a fabulous Guest Designer this past month!  We loved having you with us and hope to see you in our gallery from time to time!  I can’t take credit for the original idea (of the bib) for this card as I found it HERE on Pinterest. But boy oh boy or should I say girl oh girl I made it my own and it sure was fun and easy to do!  Okay, I couldn’t leave the boys entirely out since I have an only son myself, so here you go!  Some of you may have seen this boy card before!  If so, I apologize.  As for the girl card….The cover plate, and sentiment, and tag are from MFT.  The cute elephant is from Verve. The ruffle is a die from Spellbinders I do believe, and that tiny bow is from Paper Smooches. The Boy card…the paper is SU, the boat is Verve and the rest is the same.

Pink and Brown…

STB ToppingsHello friends,  The summer is racing by and so are our challenges over at Seize the Birthday.  Can you believe that it’s the end of July already?  I sure can’t! And in another week I will be back at work trying to stay cool. Anyhoo, let’s change the subject and talk about our next topping option over at Seize the Birthday!  For our ” topping” this time, we have one of my favorite color combos; Pink and Brown.  I started off my morning on Pinterest as I often do, and came across this card HERE that I decided I would love to Case!  If you enjoy Pink and Brown as much as I do I hope you will consider stopping on over at STB and joining us!  This card was made with a combination of Gina K Designs stamps and Stampin Up.  Take care, Nanc’

Wishing You a Par-fect day!

DSC_0122

Hello friends!  Hope this post fines you well and your weekend is off to a great start!  Today’s card is for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls.  I recently have taken up the game off golf and this photo wasn’t to difficult for me as I have the perfect stamp set to use from Gina K Designs.  If you find yourself puzzled on what to do with this Inspiration Photo, come on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the entire team did along with our guest Carol, I am sure it will spark your creativity! Not all of us went with the literal golf theme!  I used Prisma colored pencils to color the image and chalk to make the sky and the grass. I used one of my favorite EF from SU (Lattice) to add texture to my golfball.

Hope you have a tee-riffic day! Nanc’

How Beautiful…

DSC_0095

Hello friends,  I had a chance on Saturday to make a card for some other challenges that I have been eyeing this week. I was also in need of a thank you card and I really wanted to make something special.  The two challenges that inspired my card are the Mod Squad and the July Inspiration at Verve. I started off making the striped background with those beautiful colors using a SU stencil.  I then proceeded to do some ink lifting after I sponged the two smaller card panels. I love the effect of something so simple as water! I then decided the panels still needed an extra something so I heat embossed the hearts on the bottom and top of the two pieces. The butterfly is also heat embossed.  The leaves were sponged in the tangerine color before they were cut out with a small Sizzix leaf die.  All the stamps are from Verve!

I hope you are having a fabulous day!

We finally got some much needed rain yesterday to help make this heat a little more bearable. Take care,  Nanc’
