A Little Thanks

I have a quick CAS card for you today that is a CASE and not my design but something I found over on Pinterest done by Lori Tecler.  I couldn’t get to her original post but I did take a screenshot for you to see. I am playing along with this week’s CAS challenge over at The Paper Players.

Card Details: First, I sponged the sky making a stencil and blending some Oxide Ink. The sky is done directly on the card and the other 3 pieces are layered on top. Next, I tore some vellum and patterned paper that happened to have a white core. I got some brown ink to sponge on my top layer which is white cardstock to make the sand. Last, I used some white paint and a small make-up sponge in hopes to make it look like sea foam crashing in.  The cute flip flops are from Impression Obsession.  The sentiment is from SU.

Thanks for stopping by, Nancy

Beachy Birthday!

Hello Friends,  Boy the weeks just keep flying by! It’s Thursday already, and time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday. We have NO Topping this time around, as long as it’s a Birthday card and or project, you are good to go!  I don’t know if I mentioned this here before, so if I have my apologies.  I am now selling my cards at a Local Boutique and Makers Market and it’s keeping me really, really, really busy!  The store is not even 5 miles from the beach, so the card above just so happens to be for the store. They say my beachy cards are popular…so I will oblige them!  The card is watercolored for the most part and highlighted here and there with Prisma colored pencils. The multi step palm tree stamps are from Kitchen Sink. The sentiment is my go to from Verve!

Before I go I hope you will consider joining us at Seize the Birthday, my team and our Surprise party guest Anita have done a fantastic job. Hope you will consider coming on by and checking it out for yourself! Happy Stamping, Nanc’

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 12.58.52 PMHello friends,  I am the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and I just so happen to have picked out a beach photo, so if this card looks similar to my last post it was made the same day.  I had such a good time creating my beach scene with my SU watercolor brush for my Seize the Birthday post that I just couldn’t put it away quite yet. I don’t own any shell stamps or sea creatures, (I know the horror and I live in Florida) and then I remembered a scrapbook page I created eons ago that I used punches on to create my sea creatures.  I got out my scrapbook to locate that page that I was thinking of, and may have gotten sidetracked for awhile and shed a few tears as my baby is not 6 anymore, and recreated my sea creatures.  I know the proportions are a little off, but I think that’s okay.  I again used some white foam to pop up my center shape.  Hope you decide to join me and my fabulous team for our Photo Inspiration at Just Us Girls.  Doesn’t that beach cake look amazing?  Enjoy, Nanc’
