Bold Letters!

I am hosting this week for Trend Week at Just Us Girls. The trend I have chosen that seems to never go out of style is…Bold Letters. If you don’t have any Bold individual letters a large sentiment will do. I have done a little bit of both! Wait to you see all the amazing cards the team and our guest Eva came up with!  I was blown away!

This card is a mix of SU, Verve, MFT, and Sizzix.  If you have any questions let me know!

Hope you will consider joining us at JUGS! Nanc’

Balloons

Hello there,  Hope you are having a great day!  We have a really fun and easy topping for you starting over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is Balloons.  For my card, I decided to mix some Prisma coloring with some Oxide Inks and the smooshing technique. Then I decided to take an old Stampin Up stamp ( it’s to make leaves) and make some free-formed dots on the background with the same colors to give it an artsy vibe. All products are MFT, besides the sentiment which is Verve. Before, I go I would like to welcome our New Surprise Party Guest –Linda Snodgrass over at STB. I am so excited to have her with us the next couple of months.  I have had the pleasure of meeting Linda a couple of times in person and she is as sweet as she is talented. Please head on over to her blog and look around and leave her a comment or two while you are there.

Hope to see you at STB, Nanc’

Movement

Hope your day or weekend in my case is off to a good start! Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Word Week and the word we have for you is Movement.  There are many different ways you can run with this challenge.  For my card, I decided to make a pop-up card. The inside stamping didn’t turn out so well, but I had no time for a redo.

I also would like to welcome our new Guest for the Month of May and that is Eva Dobilas.  We are really happy to have you with us Eva and hope you have fun too!

Most of my card was made with SU products with the exception of the stars, those are MFT and the small ones are made with a punch.

Here is the inside of my card.

Happy crafting, Nanc’

With Sympathy…

Hello, Hope you are having a great day and you are squeezing in some creative time this weekend! We have a fabulous photo for you this week at Just Us Girls. If it doesn’t spark some creativity, nothing will!  I have been in the need of many Sympathy cards as of late and unfortunately have attended three funerals just in the last month. I sure hope that the tide will change and that will be it for a very long time.  My last one was a just a few nights ago and it shook me more than normal, I was a weepy mess.  I am not going to go into the sad details of my young friend’s passing, but what I will say is, if you are sick for a long period of time, PLEASE, PLEASE go for a second and third opinion if necessary before you are missed diagnosed and it becomes too late. 😦

The card above is heat embossed and watercolored.  The stamp and sentiment is SU.

Hugs and good health to all of you, Have a great day! Nanc’

Texture

Today’s topping over at Seize the Birthday is “Texture”, which was such a great idea thought up by my fellow DT member- Cathy, and one we haven’t done before.  I have had this card on my desktop for eons by the talented Debbie Olson and I thought this would be a perfect time to CASE it. So when I was ready to get down to work, I went searching for my felt and of course couldn’t find it anywhere.  Don’t you just hate when you know you have something and you can’t pinpoint its location?  Anyhoozal,  I decided to replace the felt with this really rough glitter paper that has been sitting on my desk waiting patiently for some love.  I bought it for a kindness award that I was giving out at school and couldn’t dare part with the leftover scraps, it has tons of texture and I knew it would do the trick! The flowers are MFT and the background was sponged with Oxide Inks.  The leaves are a SU punch.

Before I run off, I would like to say a final thank you to Tenia for being such a super surprise Party Guest!  It’s been a pleasure having you with us and we so appreciate you always joining us in our gallery at STB!

Here it Debbie’s beautiful card!  I think the felt looks ten times better.  Take care, Nanc’

With Much Love….

Hello, I hope your day is off to a good start! It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has a happy color palette for you to try! I just want to clarify that my hibiscus are in fact a deep orange and not red as they appear to be. I used two different colors of orange for this card. They actually match my background paper nearly perfect in real life. I really love this set from Stampin Up called Tropical Chic, it always stamps so well and never disappoints!

I am off to have lunch with some stamping friends today! Hope you all are doing something fun too! If not, happy stamping! nanc’

You are Loved!

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Angie is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she came up with a very fun and unique Trend Challenge for us this week. It’s called off the edge. I wish I would have thought of it! Great job Angie! My SU flowers were made out of alcohol inks, the leaves are a SU punch, tag is Verve, and the sentiment is from SSS.  I am pretty happy with the way this card came together and so quickly at that.  As you can tell, I cut down my card base a bit so that my tag could hang off the edge.

So let your imagination go and join us this week!  Nanc’

Happy Birthday You are Loved!

 

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day so far!  We have another challenge beginning over at Seize the Birthday and it’s time for Anything Goes.  Just remember it must be a Birthday theme.  I will confess I have had this card on my computer desktop for quite some time just waiting to be posted. I stenciled the background with my Oxide inks, the flowers and scalloped rectangles are MFT, the sentiment is a bit of this and that. I used wink of Stella all over the flowers, but it’s not noticeable in the picture.

Please come check out the wonderful cards by my DT and SPG Tenia. Happy crafting, Nanc’

Houses

Hello,  Seems like forever since I posted last as the last few weeks were pre-scheduled posts.  This is me coming at you LIVE…LOL.  I am back from my second trip, this one was to California to visit my son and daughter in law.  They spoiled Dave and I rotten and we got to see quite a lot. I am still reeling from all the fun we had and saying goodbye is always the tough part.  I always cry quite a lot on the plane ride home (lack of sleep doesn’t help) and then for a few days off and on, but now that I am back to work, back to a routine, I have sucked it up and I am good to go. LOL. Until next time anyway.

Today’s card is for Just Us Girls and the word is Houses.  It just so happens that I needed a Congrats on your new home card for my nephew, so the timing was perfect. Here are a few details….First, I took my Oxide inks and blended my background, next I cut out the house die (from Taylored Expressions), sun and clouds( from Lawn Fawn) and the rectangle frame and sentiment(from SU.) Put it all together and I was done.

Hope you will come by JUGS and check out what my talented team and our new Guest Christine Perez have done as well.  Welcome Christine, we are very glad to have you with us!

Below are a couple pics from our trip.  Tyler surprised us for our 27th Anniversary and took us to see Hamilton.  It was sensational!!  The ice cream picture was also in San Fran.

Take care, Nanc’

Congrats…

 

 

Hello,  Here we are once again with another week gone by! Today’s challenge at Just Us Girls is to use an Embossing Folder.  Easy huh? I paired my embossing folder with this fun puzzle piece heart from SU.  The sentiment is theirs as well.  It was heat embossed.   Isn’t that paper so pretty! It’s Bo Bunny I do believe. A Big Thanks to Greta for being a fabulous Guest this month.

Get out those Embossing Folders and please come and join us! Nanc’
