Patterned Paper

Hello,  We have a fun Wild Card Challenge this week at Just Us Girls.   I know you have some patterned Paper lying around.  I have really been making a conscious effort to try to use some of it up. I just love making baby cards so I knew right away that I would be pulling out this fun die set from MFT. However, the sun and clouds are from Lawn Fawn. I took a square die from SU to make my window. I kinda screwed up the placement of my clothes ( now that I am examining my card) as they appear to be hanging inside the window instead of outside.  It must have been really windy that day. LOL

I sure hope you swing on by the JUGS blog and check out the teammate’s cards and our guest Deborah.  This is her last challenge with us. We hope you have enjoyed yourself Deborah, as we have really enjoyed having you!

Take care, Nanc’

Inlay Die Cutting

Hello,  I am the hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Wild Card Week and that means I can choose anything at all. I decided upon Inlay Diecuts.  They are so fun and simple to do and usually have fabulous results.  The store where I sell my cards was asking for some unisex baby cards and luckily I have had this card done for quite some time as crafting is hard to squeeze in these days. I absolutely adore this MFT baby die cut set!  You must head on over to Just Us Girls and check out the rest on my team’s cards.  They are all amazing and oh so different.

I would also like to thank Betty Jacobsen for being with us this month.  Each one of her cards were so terrific!

I hope you have a great day, Nanc’

Bundle of Love

Hello, If you know me a lot or maybe a little, you know I love a good Color Challenge, so when I saw the colors over at The Color Throwdown I knew right away I wanted to play along. Look at that graphic…aren’t those mittens super cool?  I needed a card for a baby shower for a co-worker, so I had to go that direction instead of the typical Valentines’ that everyone is starting to create this time of year.  All of my supplies are MFT except for the sentiment which is Verve.  What do you think of the Tag insert…was it a stupid idea?  I am on the fence. LOL I used a mix of Prisma and Copics for my sweet Elephant and kite.

I am also going to link my card up at The Paper Players where they have a love theme starting. I thought my card worked perfectly since it says “Love is in the Air” and my Ele is floating among the clouds.

So happy you paid me a visit, they always bring a smile to my face.  Nanc’

Something New!

Hello,  Today’s card is for the first Paper Players challenge of the New Year and the theme is Something New.  I needed some baby cards for the store which worked out perfectly!  I am still in love with this cute little elephant named Emery from Verve, and you know I love polka dots, so this card worked out well in my opinion. LOL The stars are from MFT, the sentiment is also Verve, and the clouds are from Lawn Fawn.

I hope you have a great start to your week tomorrow…I have to go back to work myself.  Happy crafting! Nanc’

The Laundry is….

Is this card and die set not the cutest thing ever? All courtesy of MFT of course. My DIL- Sandra asked me to make a card for her expecting sister using this set, and this is what I came up with. Of course, I snooped around Pinterest for some inspiration.  This is the card that inspired me.  I am pretty happy with the results and hopefully she will be too. The card all started with this Sketch I found over at Inspire. Create. Challenges.  I thought the sketch worked well with the poles of the clothesline. This card makes me dream of a GD of my own someday! Oh, what fun that would be. Of course, if they are still living in California, that wouldn’t be good at all! Hopefully, when the time comes they will live closer! Fingers tripled crossed!

Card Details: All dies are MFT, the sky background was blended with Oxide inks, some of the clothes have small punches for embellishments and or DP.

Hope you find some time to be creative today, Nanc

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out the rest of the team’s cards….and join us!  We would love to have you!

Oh Baby!

Hello,  Today’s card is for the latest Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I so enjoy playing along over there. I have chosen the center row of Baby, Punch and Ribbon.  This type of baby card is something that I have made many times in the past, but it’s always fun to do.  However, I had a request to make one with a Minnie Mouse on the bib ( which I have not done before) and that is where my punch comes in for Minnie’s black ears. The sentiment is from Verve and I thought we needed to lighten up all the black with some Nuvo Drops. The rest of the dies are either Spellbinders, MFT or Stampin Up. I just adore any type of stitched dies.

I hope you have a wonderful day! My son and Daughter in law are coming into town for a quick visit…so I am pretty happy about that!  Nanc’

Wild Card CAS

Hello,  Hope you are having a wonderful day so far!  Angie over at Just Us Girls is our hostess this week and she has asked us to do Clean and Simple for our Wild Card Week. CAS is hard for me, so I needed this challenge.  I have made a card similar to this one in the past but I don’t believe I ever posted it…at least I hope not. 😉   A friend of mine is expecting her first child and she and her hubby don’t want to know the sex of the baby, so I thought this idea would be perfect.  This cute little elephant is from Verve and the sentiment is SU.

Before I go I want to say thanks to Stef Perryfor being an awesome guest with us the past month! It was a joy working with you!

Happy Easter, Nanc’

He is one of my all time favorite go to stamps for Baby cards!

I would be tickled if you would come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week! Take care, Nanc’
