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!

Colors at MFT

 

Hello, Back again today with the Color Challenge at MFT. I needed some Congratulatory Baby cards for the store and hadn’t even inked up these giraffes as of yet, so here they are. I paired my giraffes with the leaves from MFT-   I didn’t do any blending on the leaves as in the set they have both a background stamp and the outline too. Even the frame and the grass are MFT. The sentiment is Verve.

I am going to link up with Darnell over at NBUS too, as the Giraffes are new to me.

Okay, I gotta run as I got a very late start today! I slept in…WHAT that never happens!

Hope this post finds you enjoying your day! Nanc’

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
