Colors at MFT

 

Hello, Back again today with the Color Challenge at MFT. I needed some Congratulatory Baby cards for the store and hadn’t even inked up these giraffes as of yet, so here they are. I paired my giraffes with the leaves from MFT-   I didn’t do any blending on the leaves as in the set they have both a background stamp and the outline too. Even the frame and the grass are MFT. The sentiment is Verve.

I am going to link up with Darnell over at NBUS too, as the Giraffes are new to me.

Okay, I gotta run as I got a very late start today! I slept in…WHAT that never happens!

Hope this post finds you enjoying your day! Nanc’

You Inspire Me…

Hello,  There is a beautiful color combo starting today over at Just Us Girls. Angie really knows how to play nice with colors!  I am going to have to file this color trio away for future use.

Here are some card details: Rose image-Gina K Designs, Sentiment is Altenew, I used a Copic Marker to achieve my pointillism background. The enamel dots are from SU. I used a mix of Copics and Colored pencils to color my image.

Thanks for coming by and hope to see you over at Just Us Girls playing along with these amazing colors. Nanc’

Rainbow Colors

Hello,  I hope your day is off to a great start! We have a great topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday!  The topping is rainbow colors.  A couple of weeks or so ago I received this great new die and stamp set from SU called Celebrate Sunflowers and I thought this would be perfect to execute this idea I had rolling around in my head.

I may have made this a bit more time consuming than it needed to be as I cut my sunflower out first and then colored the petals with my SU watercolor brush and various inks. I thought I would have better control of the colors this way. I thought the bottom of the card needed something so I have this fun double scallop from MFT and of course, my go-to sentiment is Verve.   I few SU enamel dots in primary colors and I was done.  CAS is a challenge for me but this time I came out on top! LOL

I am joining is NBUS today too! Since this was the first time I used my sunflower set.

Please come see all the various types of rainbow designs over at Seize the Birthday and join us! Nanc’

Let’s Celebrate You

Hello, I have a card today for two challenges.  I paired the colors from The Paper Players with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I still am enjoying my new SU set called Celebrate Sunflowers. In fact, my entire card is from SU. A little Copics and then enamel dots finished it off.

Thanks for popping in and I hope this post finds you well! HUGS, Nanc’

Thanks Kindly

Hi,  Hope you are doing well and staying safe the best you can these days.  We have a great color trio starting today at Just Us Girls. The colors as you see are Light Grey, Teal, and Mustard. Today’s card is a CASE of this card Here.  I love taking a card I admire and creating it myself, and I personally think it’s a great compliment to the original designer.

I just love this Stampin Up set called Bloom and Grow. I didn’t do my card in the most logical way.  I am having a run of stupidity this week, and It’s becoming a serious problem.  I wish I was kidding.  I am going to refer to it as Pandemic brain. I think we could collectively use that excuse for just about anything that goes wrong in our life these days. Join me! Don’t take the fall alone. LOL

Anyways, as for my stupidity, I ended up sponging the background last instead of first and it caused a little bit of a muted look on my flowers. I used Copics and the sentiment is also Stampin Up.

I hope you pop on over to JUGS and join us! The team did another great job this week.  Take care, Nanc’

Cupcakes

Hi, Today’s card is for the fun color combo over at My Favorite Things. I have had these cute little cupcakes for quite some time and decided it was past time to get them broken in.  This card ended up quite different than where it began.  I decided I wanted to make my own watercolored background, but after many tries, I couldn’t get the layout to jive with the full piece that I created.  However, I loved parts of it so that is why I ended with just a circle. I think the cupcakes look yummy especially the marbled icing. The sentiments are from Verve and the Ric Rac die is MFT along with the Wonky Rectangle. The circle and square die is SU and the scalloped circle is Spellbinders.

I am going to link up over at Darnell’s NBUS! 

I hope you have a very happy day! Nanc’

2-Thinking of You

Hello,  I have two cards for you today that were inspired by the colors this week at the Color Throwdown.  This so happens to be the #600 challenge for them. WOW! Congratulations to the team!  That is really a huge achievement, that you all should be proud of!!

I am also linking my card up at Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  and using the center column of Flowers, Stripes, and Stencils.  I thought about coming back to my flower and shading it with colored pencil but chickened out.


Card details:  Stencil Poppy Bloom-Altenew, Sentiments- Neat and Tangled (bold labels) and Verve, and MFT-die cuts.  I used MFT cube inks that I literally forgot I had. LOL

Thanks for checking in and I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Hello

Hi, Back today with the great color challenge over at My Favorite Things.  My card is a CASE of this gorgeous card I linked up for you by Laura Dovalo. I knew I had a Simon Says Inlay Die-Cut that would work perfectly for my wreath, that I had only used once before. This card was very relaxing to piece together.

Card details: The flowers are MFT- Stitched flowers. The hello is made out of gold sparkly paper and is also MFT. A few rasberry polka dots and some gold Nuvo drops and I was done.

I hope you have a great weekend if you happen to be doing anything fun…enjoy!  We will be staying close to home since Florida virus numbers are through the roof.

Red, White and Blue

We have a perfect color combo for this time of the year over at Seize the Birthday! JoAnn has selected Red, White, and Blue for us! We also have a new Surprise Party Guest joining us.  It’s Jen W. and I have linked up her blog Here!  I am just tickled she is with us for the next two months.

As for today’s card.  This image is one of those block stamps that you have had forever and you just love every time you use it. I colored it with some Prismas. The sentiment is from Verve. The cute heart border is a punch from Martha Stewart.

You have to come on over to the STB blog and check out the DT’s cards.  They are so fabulous and no two are alike.

Take care, Nanc’

More Fun Backgrounds!

How about some Summer Fun to start the day? This cute little penguin doesn’t care that there is a world crisis going on, he is ready for some summer fun. I am playing along with the colors over at The Color Throwdown. I want to say that this card looks even better in person. I can’t seem to photograph these cute black penguins without them looking bald. LOL Trust me when I say the light spots of his skin look far better in person than they reveal on camera.

I did another Jennifer McGuire background masking technique for my card.  I love how it came out. If you didn’t see her video I have linked it up again for you here.

As for details on my card.  I wanted to show you that the blue circle isn’t laying on top of the pink waves and in fact one smooth piece of card stock, so I have a close-up photo for you below.  All the stamps are from MFT along with the Splash stencil.  The wave stencil I believe is from Mayco but not 100% sure. I should always remember to write on the stencil when removing it from the packaging.  I used a mix of Copics, Oxide Inks, and Prismas as my mediums of choice.

Your visits really do help with this stay at home life that we find ourselves in.  Hubby and I are trying to do our part so we can get back to life someday.

I am off to go make some more cards! What else do you do when it’s 90+ degrees outside! Nanc’
