Sending Smiles…

Hello,  It’s Color week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has a great trio of colors to get your mojo flowing. This card is similar to one I posted a few months back. The moment I saw the colors she had chosen, I knew I wanted to try my hand again at beach scene, so that is what I did. I did a bit better job of blending my Oxide inks this time around.  I used post it notes to mask off for this card. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the birds are a die from Impression Obsession.

I hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS! If you don’t have time to make a card at least come by and check out the cards from my teammates and our Guest Cathymac this week.  Have a productive day! Nanc’

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

Hi Friends,  I have another Christmas card for you today. I have had this poinsettia from Heartfelt Creations laying on my desk all glittered up for weeks and I finally got around to putting it to some use. Here are a few details; The sentiment and the leaves are from Verve. I also had some left over gold paper from the wedding, that I thought would look lovely on a Christmas card. The tag paper is from who knows where. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold along with some fun gold Nuvo drops for accents.

I am linking my card up to Stamp Ink Paper where they have a fabulous color challenge going on!

Hope you are having a truly wonderful day! Nanc’

Monochromatic Birthday!

Hello Friends,  It’s Thanksgiving here in the US and the food is prepared, the house is clean, and I am just waiting for my guests to arrive! My son and new daughter in law are on their honeymoon in Hawaii, (poor guys) so it’s going to be a bit different not having them here.  It was bound to happen sometime, so I am just going to roll with it, and be thankful for all that has transpired this past year!

It’s also happens to be time for our next challenge at Seize the Birthday! The topping I have for us this time around is Monochromatic. I have a thing for Monochromatic cards and a apparently so does the team.  They really did an incredible job! Speaking of team.  I wanted to say thanks and goodbye to Patti, one of my DT members.  This is her last post with us and to say I am sad would be completely TRUE! Patti and I hit it off right from the start and she promised me that even though she is stepping down as a DT member we are going to meet in person someday!  I will hold you to that Patti! You are such a sweetheart and so talented.  So don’t be a stranger and don’t stop creating! HUGS to you my friend!  I also want to Thank Becca Cruger for being such a wonderful Guest these past few months! It’s been an absolute pleasure having you Becca!

Card details: MFT tag and flower dies, Verve -sentiment and leaf dies, and my new love Nuvo Drops!

Have a wonderful day no matter how you choose to spend it! Hugs, Nanc’

Congrats on your Retirement!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a good week so far! It’s been quite wet here for the start of our Summer, and that is a good thing, as we sure did need the rain.  Today’s card is pretty much straight forward.  I started with this great Verve Butterfly stamp and some emboss resist. Then I found this great polka dotted paper to mount it on.  Not sure how I feel about the random tiny flowers now, but at the time I liked it! LOL

Please come by Just Us Girls and join us for Color Week! The team did a real fabulous job! Take care, Nanc’

CAS Watercolour Challenge!

Hello Friends,  I have been eyeing this Challenge over at CAS Watercolour, and was delighted when I had sometime to play yesterday, that the challenge was still open! Yeah me! So I went straight to work and this is what I came up with.  I know I could have given the flowers a little more depth of color, but I was so afraid I would ruin it, that I decided to leave it be.  This card took me no time at all to create.  When you use heat embossing it sure makes it a breeze. I decided that it might be kinda fun to poke holes in the watercolor paper and tie a tag to the bouquet so to speak.  I think the tag came out perfectly. This stamp set is from Stampendous and is called Bouquet for You! I actually used only one stamp set and didn’t mix and match this time. It’s a rarity for sure!

I sure hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for dropping by! Nanc’

Color Week @ JUGS!

Hello Friends, Over at Just Us Girls Ina has a great color combo for us, and you for that matter!  She has selected Pink, Peach and Lemon.  By golly, if those colors don’t scream Spring and Easter, nothin’ does!  Of course, I didn’t go the Easter route, I went Spring and Birthday!  I have been stuck in a pattern lately of using strips of colors on my cards. I am really happy with this layout, in fact I made 4 additional ones in all different color combos. However, I am saving those just in case I need them down the road for another DT challenge.  Sometimes you have to have backups in your arsenal. You know what I mean?  The butterfly die is from Savvy, and the sentiment is my go to from Verve! This card was not my own and a case of this beautiful card Here!

Hope you will make your way over to Just Us Girls for this challenge!  Have a blessed Easter too! Hugs, Nanc’
