Hi there…

Hello there, Today over at The Paper Players it is time for Sketch Week. I absolutely had the best time putting this card together and thought the sketch that Laurie chose this week was super fun! I love when cards have an unexpected tilt to them. I have had this great background paper for quite sometime and so happy I finally used some of it. It worked so well with my little beach babes.

I am linking my card up over with Darnell at NBUS as well, as it is the first time I used these cute beach babes from Sunny Studios. I am also linking up at Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge where all you have to do is add a Sentiment.

Card Details: The first thing I did was make a stencil with my wave die from MFT and then made my water using Oxide ink. The sand is also part of a die from MFT- Beach Builders set which I inked up to make it look more realistic. The girls and palm tree are all from Sunny Studios-Coastal Cuties/Sending Sunshine. The Hibiscus is MFT. I colored them with Copics and Prismas. I framed my little scene in with some star paper from MFT. The greeting is from one of the Sunny Studios-Coastal Cuties set.

This might be my favorite card of the year so far!

Flip Flops

Hello, These cards will look familiar but I promise they are new, and I have not shared them before! This design is just one I have made before and just really enjoy. The stars above are a new idea.

A stamp friend of mine is hosting a Beach theme challenge over at Make the Cards Challenge and I wanted to support her and play along. Plus, I needed some more beachy cards for the stores, so it’s a win win. If you have not heard of this challenge, you should go check it out! There are tons of fabulous cards over there by Donna and the Design Team.

Here are two more!

Card Details: Stamps and Dies are all from Honey Bee Stamps, The backgrounds are done with Oxide Inks. The coloring is a bit of Prismas and Copics. I have put Crystal Effect on the straps of the flip flops to make them shine. I either used gems, dew drops, or sequins to finish them off. Oh, and lots of dimensionals too.

Thanks for popping in! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and or weekend, 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’
