A Little JOY!

I am linking up with 2 challenges today! First, Less is More (Sparkle and Matte) and Secondly, Happy Little Stampers (Anything Goes with an option of Twinkle.) I made a few cards similar to these last year for the store and they sold, so I thought I would try again.  The card definitely “Sparkles” in real life and the DP has more of a matte finish.

Card details: The JOY is from MFT, the snowflakes are from Memory Box. The fun DP is from anyone’s guess.(I just love it and have cut off any recollection of who made it.) I made the victorian scallop with my Fiskers cutter.

Hope you are having a fabulous day, 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

Wedding Wishes

Hi, I have a very CAS and easy card for the Less is More Challenge today.  The word they have is Celebrations! The store that I sell my cards in needed more wedding cards, so I whipped a few of these up yesterday. That rose die is just so pretty…don’t you think?

All products are SU.

Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

Congratulations…

I have another quick post for you today! I have been eyeing the Tic Tac Toe Challenge going on over at The Paper Players which happens to end today! So I will get right to it!  I chose the diagonal of Yellow, Florals, and die-cut.

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’

Sunshine!

Hello, First Happy Fourth of July to all my USA friends and followers!  I am here today with a card for a new challenge starting over at Seize the Birthday! I happen to be the host of this challenge and our topping for the next two weeks is SUNSHINE!  I should have checked the date of my post a few months ago and picked a more appropriate topping like stars and or stripes.  I missed the boat on this one!

We also have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us for the next two months and that is Su Mohr!  Welcome to STB Su!  We are so happy you will be with us for the next two months.

Card Details: A mix of MFT( rainbow and heart), Lawn Fawn(clouds and sun) and SU(sentiment)…oh and some oxide ink blended badly!  The layout for this card is something I saw on Pinterest and not my own idea.

Have a great sunshiny day however you chose to spend it! Nanc’

HUGS!

Hello, Hope you are having a great day! Today’s card is for The Card Concept. I saw this technique for the background in a video, and for the life of me thought it was by Laura Fadora, and now I can’t find it.  Anyways, if I figure it out I will edit this post, as I like to give credit where credit is due. I really had a fun time making it. The Hugs die is from Lawn Fawn, the heart die is SU, and the wonky rectangle is MFT.  I used my oxide inks and sticky notes to achieve my rainbow effect. The HUGS is on sparkly silver paper from SU.  I splattered the background with white and black paint.  The card looks much better in real life!

I am also going to link this card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!

I made this card for a dear friend’s daughter that is battling cancer for the second time. I had the pleasure of meeting her last summer. She is an amazing person and so strong and courageous. I hope she felt the love when she received it. 

Thanks for your visit, Nanc’

Tags at STB!

Hello,  This time over at Seize the Birthday the topping if you choose to use it, is TAGS. You can make a Tag to stand alone or you may incorporate a tag on a card and or project, like I have done above.  This card has a Halloween vibe to it and it was not my intention at all, so instead of starting over, I just ran with it. In case you have never seen these Leaves before ( LOL) they are from Stampin Up.  The Tag and Birthday greeting are both from a MFT. The background was made with Oxide inks and some black and white paint splatters.  Not the best photo of the card, but it’s already sent, so had to post it as is.

Please come by to Seize the Birthday and check out what my awesome teammates have done. Speaking of Teammates, I would like to say a heartfelt farewell to one of my DT members-Sandy. Sandy, you will be missed so very much.  I am thrilled to have designed alongside you these couple of years, and very grateful I had the opportunity to meet you in person too!  Please, stay in touch! Take care, Nanc’

Beach is the Word!

Hello,  I made this card a while ago and wanted so bad to make a replacement card this week, but that didn’t happen. So, I am afraid you are stuck with this one. The fun DP is what carries this card, along with the fun shell dies from IO. The wave die is from MFT. The sentiment and square dies are SU.

Now I know this card didn’t inspire you…so PLEASE head on over to Just Us Girls, as their is a ton of it this week over there! I would also like to welcome our new Monthly guest Ros Crawford.  I am so happy you are with us Ros!  We know our guests will be inspired by your work and we hope you will enjoy yourself too!

Hugs, Nanc’

Miss You

Hello, Hope you are having a good day! I have been eyeing this challenge over at Addicted to CAS and decided to take sometime today to join in. The challenge is rainbow.  Hopefully the added embellishments doesn’t disqualify me from CAS.  However if it does, I had fun just the same.

I am also linking up to the Addicted to Stamps and More site where it’s Anything Goes.

I am also enjoying the 30 day coloring challenge but unfortunately I missed yesterday and messed up my perfect track record. I know it’s not a huge deal in the grand scheme of life, but disappointed just the same.

The negative heart die is from SU, the hill stitched border is Lawn Fawn and the stamps and letter dies are MFT.

I sure appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’

Thanks Dad!

Hello Friends,  Here is a quick collage of the Father’s Day cards I made to sell.  I can’t take credit for this design as I found it on Pinterest! Kara Lynne came up with this awesome idea and you can find her card HERE! Hope you have a great day how ever you plan to spend it.  My dad is 86 and refuses to come over for dinner or for me to bring him dinner.  So I will be going by just the same to tell him how awesome he is with dessert in hand!

The script dies are from Verve and are really fabulous! The DAD was made with large Alphabet dies from Sizzix.

Take care, Nanc’
