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!

Take care and Happy Creating, Nanc’

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.

Nautical

Hello, We are back again over at Seize the Birthday and we have a fun challenge for you to get creative with. Lindsey has chosen Nautical as our topping. I was so happy when I saw this topping coming up as I adore making Nautical themed cards.

We also have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us for the next two months at STB. Welcome Melanie Hungerford! We are so happy to have you designing alongside us!

Remember over at Seize the Birthday our topping is optional and you can always go the direction of justing making a birthday card!

Card Details: I borrowed this fun background stamp and sentiments from a friend and it’s from Avery Elle. Thanks Carol. I masked off the center to leave an oval. Then I cut out my anchor on my Cameo. Last, I added the twine and some Honey Bee Stamps Dew drops.

Hope to see you over at STB! Take care, Nanc’

Wheels

Hello, I hope you are doing well. Today over at Seize the Birthday, Shirley has this awesome idea for a topping…the topping she chose is Wheels. When I saw this topping coming up the pipeline I was glad I had recently purchased this bicycle die set. Such a quick and simple card to throw together.

Please join us at Seize the Birthday as the design team and our guest Melanie were very creative with our topping!

Please take care, Nanc’

Happy Birthday at Color Hues

Second post of the day! Please scroll down if you are looking for The Paper Players!

Hello, Here we are to the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Lindsey has chosen a fabulous color combo for us. My son made a great suggestion the other night when I was asking him about a computer problem I was having, he showed me how to add a little animation to our graphics at Color Hues. I was giddy as a little kid when I was done. It doesn’t take much to make me happy! And it’s fun to liven things up once in awhile! What do you think?

Card Details: All dies and or stamps are from Stampin Up and the DSP-who knows!

As I always say but is so very true…the Design Team and our guest Janet did an incredible job with these colors…please come by and check them out. Then, I also hope you join us!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Celebrate Your Day

Hello, It’s time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has a pretty trio for us. Before I get much further, I promise that the side piece of my card is more on the lavender side of things than blue as it appears in the picture. Plus the sentiment and the center of my lilies are dark shade of purple as well.

My philosophy when it comes to color challenges is, as long as your in the same color family and didn’t throw in a bunch of random colors that aren’t in the challenge or graphic you should be good to go. I believe the team would agree!

Once again I am playing along with the Happy Little Stampers Challenge– Anything Goes with Dies and The Global Design Project as their theme is Birthdays.

Card Details: MFT- Lily dies, the Greeting is from Verve, The scalloped, rectangle, and the rounded edge dies are all MFT, the tag die is Spellbinders. The DSP…who knows. I have a few Dew drops on there too.

Come play along with us at JUGS! We would love to have you!

Take care, Nanc’
