Prominently Purple!

Hello Friends,  Have we got a great challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. Carol has picked the color Purple for our Color Week. After I finished the above card for this challenge, I realized I had a Christmas Card that I made last year that also is Prominently Purple that I had not shared with you. So here is that one!

I hope you have a fantastic day and will consider joining us over at Just Us Girls.  The team and our Guest Karren hit this challenge out of the park.  Come on over an check  out all the Purple cards.  If you join us you might even be selected as our Chic of the Week and then have the opportunity to be our guest too.   Take care, Nanc’

Card info: First one is made with SU supplies/ Love the paper pieced die-flower.

Second card: Ornament ( stamped and lightly watercolored), Sentiment is Verve, the Bows are Paper Smooches and the Background stamp is from Stampabilities.

I Will Always Be Here For You!

Hello friends,  It’s Saturday and time for our next Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  For those of you that have been following my blog for quite sometime, you are going to think I have seen this card before, well rest assure you aren’t crazy. However, you haven’t seen THIS card before, but you have seen me do this technique and layout a time or three! It is one of my all time favorite cards so why not case myself…..right?? When I saw our Trend over at JUGS was black and white stripes this is the first thing that came to mind. I hope it’s okay that I added the grey too.

The butterfly is from Savvy and the sentiment (in the Adorable Elephants set) and the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles are from the MFT.

Please come by Just Us Girls and share your Black and White stripe creations with us and check out my fabulous team and guest Karren’s creations.  Nanc’

Vibrant Colors!

We have a fun topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is Vibrant Colors and as soon as I got this new Chameleon Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp from my local stamp store, I put the other card I had planned on posting to the side and decided to make a new one. After all, I had a few hours till bed and the post didn’t go live till tomorrow. Besides, I’ve got myself another sinus infection and I have absolutely no voice, so I thought a little stamping might cheer me up.

Here is a pic of the Oxide Inks I used. The stencil is from Heidi Swapp and the Wonky Rectangles is from MFT.  You must hop on over to the Seize the Birthday blog and check out the team’s cards along with our guest designer Kims, they are all so vibrant and fabulous! Nanc’

BTW….I have been messing with my camera’s settings and I am not succeeding.  The card is even more vibrant in person.

Take care!

Color Week at JUGS!

Hello Friends,  I am your hostess once again over at Just Us Girls and I just LOVE Color challenges.  In fact, if I didn’t have a day job I think I would start a Color challenge myself.  Maybe someday that will happen…we shall see!  In the meantime, I hope you will consider bopping on over to JUGS and joining us this week.  I really like the color combo and I hope you do too.

My card was really easy to put together.  I used some SU flowers and sentiment and some of my favorite die leaves from Verve.

Come on over and check out what the team has done with this great color combo and our Guest Stef!

See you at Just Us Girls, Nanc’

Great Colors at JUGS!

Hello,  I have a very quick card for you today that is for our Color Week at Just Us Girls. I got out one of my favorite Stampin Up sets called Painted Harvest to begin my card. I haven’t had this set very long and I haven’t quite mastered the placement of the flowers, but I will get it eventually. I hope! LOL The sentiment is from SU as well.

I sure hope these colors will speak to you and you will consider joining us this week at JUGS!   Nanc’

Great ideas start with…

Want to sneak in a post really quick before I hit the hay.  I have been eyeing this great color combo over at The Color Throwdown this week and I finally snuck in a few minutes today while it was raining to play along.  I got out one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Verve called Coffee and its matching die too. I am in LOVE with the shape of this coffee mug! It super whimsical and cute at that same time.  I loved it so much, I decided to make my own background paper too. The coffee cup stamp doesn’t come with the heart, but I thought it worked really well, so I added it.

Thanks for always making my day with your visits and lovely comments. It sure makes me smile! Nanc’

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’
