Matching Envelope

Hello, It’s Saturday and time for Trend Week at Just Us Girls. Lisa K is our wonderful hostess and she has an easy and fun idea for us and hopefully you too. She wants us to make a matching envelope for our card. I told you it was easy! Great idea, Lisa!

When I started thinking about what I wanted to do for this challenge and knew I would combine this post with the latest Spellbinders release, the idea came to me instantly. Why not emboss the envelope with this amazing Flower Frenzy Embossing Folder! This turned out even better than I thought it would. This card might be hand delivered, as I wouldn’t want it to get messed up in the mail.

I don’t think this card needs any more details given as it is all really straightforward. I have all the products listed below.

Happy Day

Hello, October! How did that happen so fast? Anyway, it’s time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Carol is our wonderful hostess and she has a perfect pairing for this Halloween month. I didn’t go the Halloween route but I certainly embraced the colors with a bright happy birthday card.

This post was written before Hurricane Ian! I have no power and No internet hope to be back up and running soon! Hugs to everyone and those poor people who lost everything and more! Take care!

Card Details: I have had this die from Spellbinders for quite some time and it’s the first time I have shared a card that I made with you. It also so happens to be on sale right now so you can find it linked below.

Cheers it’s your birthday

Hello, Today starts a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. I am the hostess and I have a very easy Topping for all of you, if you chose to hop on over and play along, we would love to have you!

Card Details: It’s your birthday is from Verve, the Bottle and glasses are from Paper Roses, the Cheers die is from Spellbinders-Outlined Sentiments. As you can probably tell I did quite a bit of ink blending on this card. HERE is the tag that totally sparked my inspiration for this card.

Hope you have a wonderful day and when you read this that Hurricane Ian is sparing us with minimal damage. Take care and be well, Nanc’

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’

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’
