CAS Snow

Hello, I hope you are doing well! It’s time for our CAS challenge over at The Paper Players and the theme is Snow. I so enjoyed this challenge being a Florida girl and all. Plus it gives me a jumps start on Christmas cards.

Card Details: I made my snowbanks with Oxide Inks and a template made from a Lawn Fawn- hills die. I use acetate so I can reuse them again. The cute little Ele is from MFT, the snowflakes are from Gina K Designs, the sentiment is Gina K too. The Santa hat die is from Lawn Fawn. I used a mix of three colors to achieve the color I was looking for. Broken China, Iced spruce, and Tumbled Glass.

I am also going to link my card up over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Snow!

For more fabulous inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Paper Players Design Team!

3 Shades of Blue

Hello, Here we are back to Saturday again, and time for another challenge at Just Us Girls. When I saw these colors my mind went straight to a baby card. I also had the MFT hearts die still on my desk for a card I will post later today and thought it would make a perfect background.

Card Details: The greeting, the little Elephant, and Balloons, heart die background, are all from MFT. I used some Copics and colored pencils for my medium. The white circle has been embossed with a hearts EF from SU but it’s hard to see in the pic. I just love how the felt balloons turned out. The background is designer paper.

We hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and I for color week.

Take and try to find some joy in your day, Nanc’

A Bouquet…

Hello, How is it Saturday already? After this week’s events, I think we all could use a little bouquet of flowers as I pick me up. Not to mention the ongoing Pandemic. SIGH! Making this card was a nice distraction to escape from this world that I don’t recognize anymore. Over at Just Us Girls, it’s Trend Week and all you have to do is use a stencil.

Card Details: The stencil is called Groovy and from Mayco I do believe, the cute little elephant is an old stamp set that I have never used. It is from Crafters Companion. I used colored pencils as my medium.

I am once again going to link this cute little guy up over at NBUS with the incredible Darnell.

I hope you will consider joining us at JUGS this week and however you choose to spend your day that it will be a happy one. Take care, Nanc’

Warm Wishes…

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Word Week and the word is Triangles. I took a lot of time trying to figure out what to do with this challenge and finally decided to divide my back panel in half. My triangles may not have pointy ends but I think it still works and hope the team does too! 

The images are from MFT and are found in the Polynesian Paradise stamp set. I took two different stencils to make my backgrounds those are from Altnew (left) and Taylored Expressions (right). I also used the cloud stencil from MFT. The branch die is from Stampin Up. I used both Copics and Colored pencils as my medium.

We also have a new guest with us over at Just Us Girls for this month. It’s Joyce Mehrberg!  We all love her work! Welcome, Joyce!

Hope you will come by JUGS and join us! Nanc’

Wishing You Well…

Hello, I am the hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it happens to be Photo Week. I thought this picture was just lovely and hope you and the girls over at JUGS did too! 

Card Details:  I used a mix of three mediums to color my image.  Watercolors, Watercolored pencils, and Zigs. I heat embossed the image with white Embossing powder first. This stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.  The flowers and background paper are burnt orange and not red as they may appear in the photo. 

Come play along with us this week! Nanc’

Texture @ STB!

Hello, we have a great topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday. We want you to add texture to your card and or project. This card was fun to put together! 

Here is a pic of the piece before I covered it up with the vellum and fishes. I used the fun Vicki Boutin Texture paste to get my texture but first I used Oxide inks with a water splash stencil. I used my MFT water die-cut for the vellum pieces. Look closely or you may have missed that. 

I used Copics for my medium. 

I hope you will come check out what the team has done over at Seize the Birthday! The cards are all so fabulous!

Take care, Nanc’

Plaid

Hello,  We have a great word selected by Bobby for you this week at Just Us Girls… the word is Plaid. I have this great buffalo check stamp from SU that I used to make my background. I used a mix of colored pencil and Copics for the medium.  The background was made with a Copic marker as well. The coaster die is from the Greetery. The stamp set and greeting are SU.

I have made a card similar to this in the past and I loved it so I did it again!

We have a brand new guest with us this month and she just so happens to be on my Design team over at Color Hues.  Please help me in welcoming Karen Walker to JUGS for the month.  Welcome, Karen!

Hope to see you in our gallery!

Take care,

Nanc’

Palm Trees

 

Hello, I was getting short on time and was wondering if I would be able to find the time to join in the Twofer Challenge this month, but thank goodness I had some time today (thanks to the hubster for taking care of my dad today for me). Love him so!  I usually don’t miss this great challenge if I can help it.

Card Number 1-I had the MFT Palm Tree not yet put away on my table in my studio and thought why not use Palm Trees!  I mean I do live in Florida for goodness sake!  I have been wanting to get out my Alcohol Inks out and make some sunset backgrounds so that is what I did.  I actually made 5 panels while I was getting messy.  I decided a black palm tree and beach might do the trick. The birthday sentiment for this card is from Verve. The bird die is from Memory Box.

Card Number 2– I have been a bit chicken to color my sweet little Hula Girl from Polynesian Paradise- also MFT, and today I decided to go for it.  How do I expect to get good at coloring people without actually coloring them? LOL  She isn’t too bad for the first time.  The rest of the stamps and sentiment are all from this MFT set.  I thought the DP kinda looked like tiny surf boards and wasn’t sure it would work, but I kinda like it. I used Copics and Colored Pencil.

Here is a picture of one of the cards by itself.  I am entering it in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week. Using the bottom row of Diecuts-Add a Sentiment-Kraft.

I hope you are staying safe and trying to enjoy life the best you can, Nanc’

Color Hues #1

Hello,  Yeah it’s September 1st!!!  I am so excited that it’s finally time for the very first challenge over at Color Hues. The colors as you can see are yellow and green.  Remember you can use any Hue of those Two Colors and Neutrals are always welcome.  You have till the 14th of the month to join us so you have loads of time.

Card details: Gerbera Daisy Background stamp is from SSS.  The sentiment is from MFT.  If you look closely you can see some clear Nuvo drops for embellishment.  I kinda went overboard on those.

I sure hope you will head on over to Color Hues and join us!  Just wait till you see the Design Team’s cards! You will be as impressed as I was!

Happy crafting, Nanc’
