Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!


Greetings from the Couch

Hello, Let me make it perfectly clear that the challenge blogs are just enabling me with furniture-themed photos this week. Have you noticed? 🙂 I have found three of them. I wasn’t disappointed when I saw this photo below over at Inkspirational as it gave me yet another excuse to make another couch card. YAY! I kept this one on a more CAS side.

The photo is a bit hard to see but let me explain how I was inspired. I saw a lot of texture in this pic and a lot of earth tones with just a few pops of color. So, I decided to find some paper that would play off the floor, walls, and ceiling. The couch color was inspired by whatever that may be in the far right of the photo. I added a few pops of green foliage like you see hanging from the ceiling.

Card Details: MFT- Couch Card Kit.

I hope you have a terrific start to your week! Take care and happy creating, Nanc’


Card Concept-Red, White, and Blue

I am back again today with another card using the MFT card kit and If you are tired of seeing these types of cards, I am truly sorry! Not sorry enough to stop, but still very, very sorry! LOL. As soon as I saw the challenge photo over at The Card Concept, I knew this set would work so perfectly. See, I was forced to use this set again! Isn’t that sentiment just fabulous?

As you can probably tell, I was inspired by the colors, the stars and stripes, and the cozy setting for a Clean and Layered Design.

Card Details: MFT Couch Kit, the brick wall was made using a SU embossing folder that I inked with brown ink. The brick background had been in my stash for quite some time and I am happy that I finally put it to use. I inked the sky of the window with Oxide Ink. The Picture window and drape die are an added accessory that doesn’t come in the kit. I am super glad I purchased it though.

I hope you enjoy your day and spend a bit of time doing something that brings you JOY!

Take care, Nanc’

Color Throwdown

Hello, I am back today with another card using the fabulous colors going on over at the Color Throwdown. I am getting in under the wire! Amy is the hostess over there and she is a big fan of Schitt’s Creek and that is where her inspiration photo comes from. Not to mention those cookies look amazing! I love the show, but dear hubby feels differently about it and we always watch TV together so I will have to binge a few more episodes the next time he goes out for the day. As soon as I saw that color pallet, I knew it would work well, as I yet again design a pretend living room. This MFT Card Kit makes me feel like an interior designer, where the sky is the limit! I have made 5 cards so far and really don’t want to stop.

Card Details: Everything you see is from the MFT Card Kit. I used some Oxide inks to make the sky out the window. I used mirrored paper for my baseboard and curtain rod. My favorite parts of this card are the striped curtains and the patterned pillows. So fun! I could live here!

I appreciate you checking in on me. Take care, Nanc’


More Couch Kit and a Mistake

Hello, I am back this afternoon with another card using the new MFT Couch Kit. This time I am joining the MFT Color Challenge. I am totally enjoying myself, to say the least. If you know me you know that being home and crafting is certainly okay with me on this Holiday weekend, it’s over 90 degrees outside anyways. No thank you!

Where is the mistake, you ask? I decided to make some shiplap for the top of my wall and when I went to adhere the background piece to my card stock base I put it on upside down. Now I guess it looks like white hardwood floors. LOL Next time, I will build my card completely and then adhere the base, and maybe I will have less of a chance of making that mistake again.

The patterned paper in my stash was so perfect for my couch as it has two tones of blue and kraft in the pattern.

I am also going to link my card up over at Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes, along with Addicted to Stamps and More for their Stencil and or Die Cut Challenge.

Card Details: Everything you see is from the MFT Card Kit. I used some Oxide inks to make the sky out the window and I trimmed the window and curtains down as I needed a smaller window in the space I provided.

So far I have shown you 2 out of 4 of the cards I have made with this Kit. Stay tuned!

I hope you are having a great day! Nanc’


I Love You More Than My Plants

Hello, I am back today with a card for the latest sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches using the latest Card Kit from My Favorite Things. Let me just say, that it’s the first time that I can recall that moments after my package arrived that I went right to my studio to play. I just could not wait to open up this cute Kit! It is every bit as cute as I thought it was going to be. So take this as a warning, most likely you will be seeing lots of cards using these new products over the next month or so.

I have linked up one of the cards by MFT DT member- Tiffany of Ink Therapy Designs that inticed me to buy this set. She is super talented and sweet to boot!

I am going to link up with Darnell over at NBUS also.

Card Details: Nearly all supplies are from the MFT-Couch Card Kit except for the stitched edging and the Stitched Heart, although they are also made by MFT. The Dewdrops are from Honey Bee Stamps.

I hope however you are spending this long weekend, you are doing something that brings you JOY! Nanc’
