Sun or Moon Twofer

 

Hello,  We had a stormy start this morning at 5 am, so plenty of time to play along with the Twofer Challenge of Sun or Moon.  I have had this wooden moon stamp for eons and I just love it. It is one of those unique wooden stamps that you just have to hang on to and I am sure glad I did.

Card Details:  Three window baby card:  Moon stamp, Verve sentiment and MFT baby die cuts, Copics, and ribbon.

Love you to the moon:  Moon stamp, Wooden sentiment from Michaels, Oxide Inks, rolling hills edge die-Lawn Fawn, star dies are from Your Next Stamp.

Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

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’

Travel

Hello, It’s August first! It’s really hard to believe! It has been a fast year despite all the downtime we all have had at home.   However, now it’s the weekend and time for Word Week at Just Us Girls.  The word as you can see is Travel. I have a graduation card for you using the fun Stampin Up Hot Air Balloon die. I love this set but never pull it out to use very often. Each section of the balloon comes in pieces so you can change the colors as you go down before you put on the overlay die.  I hope you can see and understand what I mean.  The clouds are from MFT.  I used lots of dimensionals to lift my balloon into the sky.

We have a new guest joining us this week and it is Lisa Elton!  Welcome, Lisa!  So glad to have you along!

Come join us at Just Us Girls we would love to have you. Nanc’

Rainbow

 

Hello, Happy Fourth of July!!  It’s also time for another challenge at Just Us Girls.  The word we have for you this week is Rainbow.  We all could use some rainbows right about now to brighten our moods. At least I sure could. Speaking of brightening the mood you should check out the DT’s cards, there is such a lovely array of different ideas from the team.  We also have Trina joining us as our Guest Designer, and you know her cards are always fabulous!  Welcome, Trina!

I have a mix of companies on my card. MFT-rainbow and heart, Lawn Fawn-clouds and sun, and SU- Embossing folder and sentiment.

Please come to JUGS and join us we would love to have you!  Nanc’

The Laundry is….

Is this card and die set not the cutest thing ever? All courtesy of MFT of course. My DIL- Sandra asked me to make a card for her expecting sister using this set, and this is what I came up with. Of course, I snooped around Pinterest for some inspiration.  This is the card that inspired me.  I am pretty happy with the results and hopefully she will be too. The card all started with this Sketch I found over at Inspire. Create. Challenges.  I thought the sketch worked well with the poles of the clothesline. This card makes me dream of a GD of my own someday! Oh, what fun that would be. Of course, if they are still living in California, that wouldn’t be good at all! Hopefully, when the time comes they will live closer! Fingers tripled crossed!

Card Details: All dies are MFT, the sky background was blended with Oxide inks, some of the clothes have small punches for embellishments and or DP.

Hope you find some time to be creative today, Nanc

Congratulations… on your Retirement

Hello, as you can see I found another nautically inspired challenge site to play along with this week. This card is for Time Out Challenges. I found the perfect DP-by Kaiser Craft to use along with my SU-Nautical stamp set to complete it.  This was so quick, but I like the way it came together.  The card is going to a person that in fact sails, so hopefully he will love it and get a kick out of my sailor’s knot.

Thanks for your visits…they are so appreciated.

Card Details: Elizabeth Craft Designs-Daisy die, Background stamp from Stampabilities, both Stitched and Scalloped Rectangles are MFT, and one more piece of that lovely DP from Bo Bunny ( I think)

Have a great day, 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’

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’

Celestial is the Trend

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day!  If you were in the path of Hurricane Michael, I hope you are safe and with minimal damage. Mother nature isn’t being kind lately and I hope it stops very soon.  It breaks my heart to see the devastation it left behind. Feeling very blessed as I write this post.  Other than some rain and gusty winds, all was well here on the west coast of Florida. I am sending this card to my son ( whom I adore and miss, more than you can even imagine) and I can’t say exactly why I am sending this card, but I hope he doesn’t happen to check my blog before he receives it. You will have to trust me that it looks even better in person.  I had so much fun creating my celestial background with my oxide inks, starting with a piece of white card stock. It was a ton of blending!! The letter dies are from MFT and the “so proud of” is from SU.  That wooden moon stamp is something I have had for eons and is white heat embossed. The stars were heat embossed too and made with a SU stencil as well. Some splatters, and I was done.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out my fabulous teams designs! Nanc’
