Sealiously

Hello, I am back with a card today for “just me” and it also happens to be for the latest Freshly Made Sketch Challenge going on. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to play along. As I mentioned a few days ago, I am determined to do more coloring when I am sitting down to create, as I do enjoy it so much. It just takes time, and sometimes we have to make time for the things that we enjoy, don’t we? Plus I am not going to get better at it if I don’t practice.

Card Details: Sunny Studios-Sealiously Sweet Summer stamp set, Copics and Prismas to color. I am hoping the small splashes of water that come in that set are looking like watermelon seeds, because that is what I was going for.

I hope you had an enjoyable day, however you chose to spend it. If you’re looking for a challenge to play along in with a ton of inspiration…try Karren’s sketch at FMS! Take care, Nanc’

Green and White Birthday

Hello, It’s time for our next topping at Seize the Birthday. JoAnn is our wonderful hostess this time around and she has chosen a color challenge for our topping, and it’s perfect for today which happens to be March 17th-St Patrick’s Day!

Card Details: I had this negative die sitting on my desk for quite some time and am happy to have put it to use. I know my card has quite a bit of black on it, but that is okay as that is one of our neutrals. When I found this green and white DSP in my stash I knew it was going to work out perfectly. The heart die is from SSS, the Birthday die is from MFT. A few silver punches for the center of the flowers and I was done.

Now, I hope you will come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the fabulous cards by the Design Team and our guest Deepti!

Do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

To the Birthday Chick

Hello, It is the middle of the month, and time for our next Hues of Colors over at Color Hues. I am the hostess for this challenge and I have selected a Spring color pairing. Today also happens to be my hubby’s birthday and when you read this we will be in California celebrating with family. Lucky us! We were supposed to go for my birthday in August last year, but that didn’t pan out. I am just thankful to be there now.

Card Details: Chick Stamp set by MFT, the clouds and sun die are from Lawn Fawn and I used Copics to color my images.

Now, I hope you will go on over to Color Hues and check out the fabulous cards from our Design Team and our guest Kerry! I know you will be as inspired as I was.

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Sparkle and Shine

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new topping starting. Cathy is our sweet hostess and she wants us to add sparkle and or Shine to our Birthday cards. I thought this fun Pickup truck from Spellbinders would do the trick. I used fun mirrored paper for the bows, bumper, and side- mirrors. I guess I was driving too fast as the packages came spilling out of the back!

Here is a close-up!

Card Details: The cute little pick-up truck is from Spellbinders. The sentiment is a mix of Verve!

I hope you will come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the fabulous cards by my Design team and our wonderful guest Vicky Hayes and while you are there get inspired to join us!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Snowman Birthday

Hello, Today’s card is for Photo Week over at Just Us Girls where Lisa E. is our fabulous hostess. She picked the cutest and most perfect photo for us that encaptures both winter and Valentine’s Day. My card was made for my BIL that loves the snow and has a birthday right after Christmas.

I am also linking up over at- Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge where it’s Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: The snowman is from Pretty Pink Posh, the trees are brand new to me and are MFT, the hills were made with Lawn Fawn dies. The sentiment is from Verve and the speech bubble is from SU. I used Oxide inks for my background and Copics and Prismas to color my trees. I am super happy with my trees and the entire card, actually! This card was inspired by this on here!

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls as the team and our guests have done an INCREDIBLE job with this photo! I know you will be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’

Wishing You…

Hi! I am back today for the next challenge over at Just Us Girls! Lisa K. is our sweet hostess and she has a pretty color trio that I just loved working with and think you will too. For my design, I let die cuts do most of the work with a silver embossed sentiment.

Card Details: The Flowers and all the foliage are all from SU, The sentiment is from Verve, The scalloped edge die angled die is from Papertrey Ink. I didn’t realize the whites on my card didn’t match till I took the picture! I used mirrored paper for my silver. A few rhinestones to finish it off.

Hope you will pop on over to JUGS and check out the DT’s work along with our two Guest Designers! We would love to have you!

Happy New Year! Hello-2022

This is my second post of the day! If you are looking for Just Us Girls…scroll down!

Hello, Happy New Year to you! I am back today from a much-needed and enjoyable Holiday break with the first card of 2022. Today’s card is for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues! Hannelie is our hostess and she has chosen, Red and Purple. As you can see on my card I embraced all different shades of purple. It may appear that her coat is on the blue side of things but I promise it is more of a periwinkle tone of purple. (Fellow DT member, Carol can come to my defense as it is now in her hands.)

Card Details: The cute Shopping Spree die cut is borrowed from a friend and is from Spellbinders. The happy die is from MFT, and the EF background is from Sizzix-Tim Holtz. I really love the way this turned out! There is a sample of a darling card using this die on the Spellbinders site that inspired me to use this for something other than Christmas.

Before I go, Do you do New Year’s resolutions? I usually don’t do a very good job sticking with these types of things. So, what I have been doing the past few years is, I come up with a WORD for the year to live by and or to perhaps challenge me to do things better. My word in 2020 was acceptance, my word for 2021- was productive and my word for this year is going to be…wellness. My health has really been put on the back burner this year and I have been really suffering, especially over the past several months and most recently, the Holidays. So now that my hubby is better and hopefully cancer-free, and I am adapting to my father’s situation with his Dementia and unhappiness in the ALF, it is time to take care of me! I have to get my health back on track and get to the bottom of all the troubles I am having! Wish me luck!

Please come on by Color Hues and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and our guest-Tenia. We would love to have you join us too! And once again Happy New Year to all of you!

Take care, Nanc’

HAPPY birthday

Hello, I am back today with a very quick card for The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge where sweet Jaydee is our hostess. I chose the row going down of- feminine, birthday and floral.

Card Details: The DSP is that older special paper from SU that I talk about often and just adore. I certainly wish they carried it full time. It comes in all different patterns and all you have to do is put ink on it for an emboss resist. I LOVE IT! Really makes for a quick card when you are in a time crunch. I use if very sparingly and keep every scrap. The sunflower and leaves are also from Stampin Up. I added a few gems and a greeting and I was done.

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

Flip Flop Birthday

Hello, We have the brightest and most beautiful Color Challenge starting today at The Paper Players! Claire is our fabulous hostess and she was so colorful in her selection. My first thought was to make the striped DSP to match the colors and I am glad I did.

Life is not improving and I am so lucky I worked way ahead on all my challenge blogs as I hate to let anyone down, so I am going to have to wrap this up!

Here is card number 2.

I am going to be linking up over at Happy Little Stampers as well with Anything Goes with dies.

A Few Card Details: Tags and the scalloped die are from MFT, I made the flip flops from Impression Obsession die with strips of paper. The first cards sentiment is from MFT and the second card’s sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps. The hearts on the flip flops are from the SU owl punch.
