Birds at TPP

Hello, It has been a few weeks since I had the opportunity to play along with my friends at The Paper Players, and as soon as I saw the Birds and Bees challenge I knew I could come up with something.

I have made a baby card like this in the past but not using the super fun Cloud Heart stencil from Miss Ink Stamps in conjunction with the MFT cloud stencil. Using both stencils together, I was able to achieve a lot of depth. I just love the way this turned out that I had to make a boy card too.

Card Details: The Cloud Heart Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps and the cloud ripple is from MFT. The stork is from Impression Obsession. The greeting is from MFT.

I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy! Nanc’

Embossing Folders @JUGS

Hello, It is Saturday already and time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Vicky has chosen an easy Trend for us to enjoy and hopefully you will too! All you need to do is use an Embossing Folder. I think the hardest part would be to decide which one. LOL If you are anything like me you have at least 20 to choose from.

I am also going to play along over at Happy Little Stampers – Die Cut Challenge, as I often do.

Card Details: Embossing Folder-Stampin Up, the onesie and button dies are from MFT and very old, and the greeting is from Stampin Up. Postage die is Hero Arts. I adore the DSP, that I believe I found at Hobby Lobby.

Now, I hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and check out the cards by my fabulous teammates and our guest and join us! Take care, Nanc’

I Can’t Wait to Meet You

Hello, It’s the weekend and time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls! It happens to be photo week and Cecile has chosen the most precious photo. I decided to do the obvious and make a baby card.

Card Details: Postal dies are from Hero Arts. The clouds are from MFT and I have vellum behind them. The Star stamp is a very old SU set. The Fox, White Stars, and Greeting are all MFT. I used Copics and pencils for my medium. Lots of dimensionals too.

Now head on over to Just Us Girls and check out the Design Team’s cards along with our guest Nora. I know you will be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’

Super Cute…

Hello, It is time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and I couldn’t wait to get started when I saw this great trio of colors selected by Carol. I needed another baby girl card and thought this would be just perfect, for the layout I had in mind. You all know I love polka dots and I thought these papers would be perfect for my baby blankets and cute little dress.

You know if I have lots of die cuts on my card, I will be linking up with the fun over at The Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge-Anything Goes.

Card Details: The greeting is from MFT along with the dress die and hanger. The Sweet stamp is from Jelly Bean. The coaster die that I am calling a baby blanket is from the Greetery. The hearts were a bad after thought! UGH!

Come on over to Just Us Girls and join us…who knows you might be chosen as our next Chic of the Week!

Take care and stay well, Nanc’

Stars and Stripes

Hi, Boy oh boy do we have the perfect challenge starting today over at The Paper Players. Anne Marie has chosen Stars and Stripes appropriately enough on this July 4th Holiday Weekend! What a fun graphic she put together too as it is full of inspiration. It certainly inspired me, if you couldn’t tell!

Card Details: I was in the need of a baby card and you can never go wrong when you pull out the great die set by MFT. The white stars are a die are from Your Next Stamp and the greeting is from Stampin Up. The wonky rectangle is also MFT.

For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

Congrats -Baby

Hello, It’s Sunday and time for our CAS challenge at The Paper Players. Ann wants us to bring out the Animals this time around. I was needing to restock the baby cards and figured this baby stork would be perfect for this challenge. I really enjoyed putting this card together. It has a little of everything; stamping, stenciling, paper piecing, and die-cutting.

Couldn’t leave out the baby girls!

Card Details: Stork, baby bundle and Congrats are from Impression Obsession. The heart clouds were masked and sponged with an MFT cloud stencil using Oxide Inks.

For this Child, I Prayed

Hello, It is the 5th Sunday of the month so it is time for the fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge over at The Paper Players. Laurie has come up with a fun board for us to pick from. I don’t know about you but I really enjoy these types of challenges, as it gives you so many different options to chose from. I have chosen the top row of die-cut, animal, and scene.

Card Details: I used a negative heart stencil and an MFT cloud stencil to make my cloud background. The cute dragons are also from MFT and they are colored with Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils. The cloud dies are also MFT and I didn’t like them stark white so I took a regular number 2 pencil and my finger and gave them some smudgy shading. I pulled out an older Verve stamp set for my greeting. I am pretty pleased with how this turned out and I can’t always say that. ;). I even gave the momma dragon some eyebrows.

For more fabulous inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

3 Shades of Blue

Hello, Here we are back to Saturday again, and time for another challenge at Just Us Girls. When I saw these colors my mind went straight to a baby card. I also had the MFT hearts die still on my desk for a card I will post later today and thought it would make a perfect background.

Card Details: The greeting, the little Elephant, and Balloons, heart die background, are all from MFT. I used some Copics and colored pencils for my medium. The white circle has been embossed with a hearts EF from SU but it’s hard to see in the pic. I just love how the felt balloons turned out. The background is designer paper.

We hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and I for color week.

Take and try to find some joy in your day, Nanc’

Life is Better

Hello, Why as we get older why is change so hard. WordPress has decided to update my blog and I am not overly excited about it so if this looks a bit weird you will know why. I have been doing my blog posts the same since 2008. Okay, enough of the whining, it’s time to talk about the next Hues of Color we have starting today over at Color Hues. We have Blue and Orange for you to be inspired with. I have two cards to share with you today.  I know I should be embracing cooler temps and not making Beachy cards but this Florida girl doesn’t really know what fall is. So there you go!  I just love that I was able to cut the crabs out perfectly on the flip flop bows.  That Designer Paper is from my local Scrapbooking store.  So fun! 

Below is the first card I made for this challenge but when I saw the DT’s cards I knew this boring card wasn’t gonna stand a chance against theirs.  However, here it is to show you anyway.

Card Details: 1st card- Honey Bee Stamps and Dies Flippin Fabulous.  The XOXO is MFT. 

2nd card- Flowers, Hugs die, and scalloped edge are all MFT.  Nuvo Drops for centers of flowers. 

Head on over to Color Hues and see what the team and our guest did this time! Trust me the cards are all fabulous!! 

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Welcome Baby

Hello,  It’s time again for the next challenge at Just Us Girls!  I needed a baby card and although I didn’t use any of the colors from the inspiration photo, I did use stars! 😉  You know me by now and there is a very good possibility that this is a CASE of myself. Yeppers!  Somedays we don’t have time to reinvent the wheel!

Card details:  Emory the Elephant and sentiment are Verve, the clouds are Lawn Fawn, the stars are MFT, the circle die is SU, and the small and large scallop are both Spellbinders.

Please come by JUGS and join us!
