Long and Skinny

Hello,  Have we got a popular and fun challenge for you today over at Just Us Girls! Slimline cards are all the rage lately and I must say I am a fan. I had a great time making my colorful coffee panel and was extremely happy with how it came out. I am not a huge fan of how the rest of the card came together but it’s okay. Hubby said I screwed up with the vertical green banner die. I didn’t tell him I agreed. 😉 Most all of my supplies are from Verve. One of my favorite sets for sure. Even the heart die is Verve. I used the emboss resist technique with Oxide Inks to blend my panel.  Below is the panel before I covered it.

You have to come over to JUGS and join us.  We would love to have you and you may even end up being selected as our Chic of the Week.

Take care, Nanc’

Fancy Fold…Not Very Fancy

Hi, Hope this post finds you holding up okay. I am trying my best.  I just asked my Alexa to play some Happy music and I am sipping an Iced Coffee from Dunkin, so far so good. The coffee runs are becoming a serious problem. Do you think it’s normal that they know us by voice in the drive-thru at Dunkin? LOL Today I have a card for The Paper Players where they asked us to do a fancy fold.  This is not something I do on a regular basis. I am a plain and simple A2 kinda gal, so this is what I came up with, as it was safe and quick. Don’t want to do much to rustle my feathers these days. The news has that job!  LOL

As you can see all you have to do is add another score line at 1 1/2 inches.  Pretty fancy huh? LOL I used a Digi stamp from Power Poppy for my card and a mix of Copics and colored pencils. I have no idea where I got the thx die-cut as it was in my bits and boxes drawer. I dotted my background once again with a Copic as I can’t leave them plain white these days.

Big cyber hugs to all of you.  If you are struggling as I was this morning, try some happy music or Dunkin… it helps, Nanc’

You are Simply Wonderful

I thought the Sketch this week over at CAS(E) this Sketch looked quite fun so I joined along. I found these flowers already inked up in my bits and boxes drawer and thought they were too pretty not to use.  I then opened a new pack of 6×6 paper that I just got from Stampin Up ( yes, I know I know I said I was trying to use up my designer paper and not buying anymore-forget that I said that….LOL) and it just so happened to have two pieces of the exact colors of the flowers inside. Score! So needless to say this card came together rather quickly!  I did flip the sketch and hope it’s okay that my sentiment is very large. A couple of small heart punches and I was done.

The flowers were heat embossed and sponged with Oxide inks and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Thanks for the visit….HUGS! Nanc’

2-Thinking of You

Hello,  I have two cards for you today that were inspired by the colors this week at the Color Throwdown.  This so happens to be the #600 challenge for them. WOW! Congratulations to the team!  That is really a huge achievement, that you all should be proud of!!

I am also linking my card up at Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  and using the center column of Flowers, Stripes, and Stencils.  I thought about coming back to my flower and shading it with colored pencil but chickened out.


Card details:  Stencil Poppy Bloom-Altenew, Sentiments- Neat and Tangled (bold labels) and Verve, and MFT-die cuts.  I used MFT cube inks that I literally forgot I had. LOL

Thanks for checking in and I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’

At least I sure could. Speaking of brightening the mood you should check out the DT’s cards, there is such a lovely array of different ideas from the team.  We also have Trina joining us as our Guest Designer, and you know her cards are always fabulous!  Welcome, Trina!

I have a mix of companies on my card. MFT-rainbow and heart, Lawn Fawn-clouds and sun, and SU- Embossing folder and sentiment.

Hello

Hi, Back today with the great color challenge over at My Favorite Things.  My card is a CASE of this gorgeous card I linked up for you by Laura Dovalo. I knew I had a Simon Says Inlay Die-Cut that would work perfectly for my wreath, that I had only used once before. This card was very relaxing to piece together.

Card details: The flowers are MFT- Stitched flowers. The hello is made out of gold sparkly paper and is also MFT. A few rasberry polka dots and some gold Nuvo drops and I was done.

I hope you have a great weekend if you happen to be doing anything fun…enjoy!  We will be staying close to home since Florida virus numbers are through the roof.

Red, White and Blue

We have a perfect color combo for this time of the year over at Seize the Birthday! JoAnn has selected Red, White, and Blue for us! We also have a new Surprise Party Guest joining us.  It’s Jen W. and I have linked up her blog Here!  I am just tickled she is with us for the next two months.

As for today’s card.  This image is one of those block stamps that you have had forever and you just love every time you use it. I colored it with some Prismas. The sentiment is from Verve. The cute heart border is a punch from Martha Stewart.

You have to come on over to the STB blog and check out the DT’s cards.  They are so fabulous and no two are alike.

Take care, Nanc’

All Eyes on You…

I have a quick card for you today that goes with the sketch this week at The Paper Players.  I will also be joining Darnell over at NBUS as it is the first time I inked up these cute little monsters from Your Next Stamp. I used Prismas today as my medium of choice. As you can see I am still working on using up some Designer Paper too.

Thanks for popping in, HUGS Nanc’

Lemonade

Hello, I hope this post finds you well. I started my plans for my card using the fun sketch over at My Favorite Things.  I must say that today’s card is one I am pretty happy with, which is a rarity! LOL  I have been working hard to improve my coloring skills especially with Copics and this is probably the best job I have done when it comes to people.  I still have some work to do that is for sure, especially in the hair department, but I am enjoying the process.  Also, the fun paper you see behind my sweet PI little lemonade lover is not designer paper but actually a piece of packaging from some canning jars that I bought a while ago.  I am tickled to have finally used some of it.  I love repurposing something so pretty.

I made the 3 victorian edge pieces behind my rectangle with my Fiskers cutter. I added some cute yellow round gemstones and I was done.

I am also linking my card up over at two additional challenges.  Over at Inkspirational Challenge, they have the word Sketch and they are allowing us to link our card up If we used a Sketch from another challenge. Next at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I am using the row- Polka Dots, Sequins, and Summer.  I hope they don’t mind I substituted my yellow gems for the sequins and nothing screams summer like a nice cold glass of lemonade.

Thanks for visiting, Nanc’

Sunset at JUGS

We have a gorgeous picture for your inspiration at Just Us Girls today. I can attest that our sunsets have been pretty magnificent as of late and starting next week they are supposed to be getting even more intense due to the Saharan Dust Plume that is headed towards the US.  We shall see if they look as good as they predict. This photo couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

I did a quick watercolor background on my card and the silhouette palm tree is from MFT.

I hope you will be inspired to come over to JUGS and check out what the team did with this picture and while you are there join us. Before I go I would like to thank Mugdha for being with us this month.  We really enjoyed your creativity and amazing cards and hope you will come back again soon.

I am also linking my card up over at TGIF Challenge where they have a summer vibe challenge going on.  Nothing screams summer to me than gorgeous sunsets.

Take care, Nanc’
