JOY

Happy Weekend! Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend Week.  The Trend that Carol chose for us is Wood. I feel like I cheated a bit, as the only thing I have on my card that is wooden is a star that I have stained with ink and decorated to look like a Christmas Cookie. I know…epic fail on my part. I do like the way this card came together though. I used a JOY die and a sentiment from MFT and the fun paper is from SU.

Please head on over to Just Us Girls, where I can assure you, the team did a little bit more than I with this challenge.  Nanc’

Friend…

I have another card for you today that is for Time Out Challenges, it happens to be my second entry for this challenge. Once again, it goes along with the part of the phrase about friends.  As I was cleaning up my studio, I came across an envelope of die cuts that a good friend (Barb) punched out for me and it had this cute little bird die in it. So if you want to know whose die cut it is…I haven’t the foggiest. However, I can find out if need be. Anyhoo, I decided to make a blended panel with my Oxide Inks to showcase these cute little birds and just leave them white. The grass is a from MFT and the word friend…is from Pretty Pink Posh.  Topped it with a bow and I was done.

I hope you are enjoying your day.

It’s raining here and I am enjoying it immensely!

In fact, still in my PJ’s and on my umpteenth cup of coffee. 😉 Right now its Salted Caramel….yum yum!!  Nanc’

Snowman Joy!

Hello Friends, Got another FUN Christmas card with my MFT Joy die set! You can’t help but smile when you see that cute little snowman staring back at you! I just love polka dots, and when I got this fun Washi tape out the other day I thought it would make a great accent to his cute little hat. I am linking this cute little guy up over at Muse Christmas Visions and again at Inkspirational.

I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for your sweet comments as of late, and your visits too! Hugs, Nanc’

Have a joyful day! Nanc’

Hello!

I have a quick post for you today for the latest Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I managed to squeeze tiny bit of me time in this week, and it felt really good.  I chose to use the bottom row of the board ; die cute, orange and sequins. I got this free hello die from MFT, and I paired it with this fun DP from SU that I sponged with my Oxide Inks, along with the friend sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh. Love using the negative of a die on a card. Not sure what I will do with the two hellos as of yet, but I am sure I will figure something out.

I hope you are having a fabulous day! Hope you and I both find some more time to craft this weekend…it’s been far too long. Nanc’

Anything Goes at Seize the Birthday!

Hello Friends,  I hope you are having a great week so far! It sure seems to be flying by for me! It’s time for our Anything Goes Challenge at Seize the Birthday!  This card came together very quickly, and yet with minimal effort I think it looks pretty good! Love those candle dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The sentiment is from Close to My Heart and the rectangle scallops are from MFT.

I would love to have you join us sometime over the next two weeks at STB.  All you have to do is make a Birthday card and or Project!  Take care,  Nanc’

Keep Calm and Drink Coffee!

Hello Friends, I am going to sneak in a quick post this evening just hours before this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch comes to a close.  I just recently got this great Coffee stamp set and two die cuts from Verve and I couldn’t wait to use them for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. I doubled the Coffee die for some depth and cut the sentiment in half to help stay with the sketch.  Not only is this set simply awesome, but Julee the owner of Verve sent me these pieces of Designer Paper with my order too. Love them! Thanks Julee! You will be seeing another card made with these great papers very soon. This card is rather simple and I felt it needed something else, but I just decided to leave it be before I ruined it. Sometimes too much is too much! Ya know what I mean?

Now go check out the Verve products that I have linked up for you,  they happen to be on SALE!  Hugs, Nanc’

Stacked Die-cuts

DSC_0706

Screen Shot 2015-05-15 at 12.01.58 PMHello Friends,  Time for a great challenge over at Just Us Girls. Sue is hosting and she has asked us to try our hand at Stacked Die-cuts.  I love this trendy- trend, and with so many different dies on the market these days, the sky’s the limit.  I opted to stack my sentiment, however if you do not have a sentiment die you may stack any die of your choosing!  I couldn’t wait to get my Paper Smooches stamps inky again, along with the new matching die-cut set.  Isn’t that painter’s palette the coolest?  My hubby loved this card when I showed it to him! HOWEVER, there is always a however when you show a resident artist your work.  He said, “It would have been cooler if you made the paint circles more free formed, because when you put the paint on a real palette the paint is never that perfectly round.” He has a valid point, so maybe I will try that in the future.  Please don’t tell him I said so. LOL  He did give me a few additional ideas for future cards though! I guess I will keep him around.  I am also linking my card up for the very first time over at The Paper Smooches blog. They have an Anything Goes challenge still going on.  Win Win for me!  I can tell you without a doubt, I will be buying more of their stamps and or die-cuts real soon!

Here is another photo…so you can see that the die cut is raised.  Not sure if you noticed but I ran the die through my Big Shot with a shim to make a point to make the added indention around the die-cut.  I like that look!

Card Details:  I have used three layers of SU Thanks die, the bottom two are in white.  The Paper Smooches stamp set is called I Heart Art and the die-cut is called Positive Strokes.   Cardstock is all Stampin up.  And of course I had to use my MFT stitched rectangle dies.  Hope you come on over to JUGS and join us!  If you are chosen as our Chic of the Week, you will be in the running for a possible guest designer in the future, just like our current GD Ros Crawford this week!   Hope you find sometime to be creative this week!  Take care,  Nanc’

Inspire….

DSC_0535Hi Friends,  I made this card the other day in the mist of being home from work and on the couch sick, so I figured the only way it was actually going to get done is to go CAS!  Then it wasn’t as quick is one would think.  Now that it is photographed, I kinda wish I would have worked on those leaves a little bit more.  It’s already on it’s way to a friend of mine that in fact inspires me!  Hope she likes it well enough, and doesn’t see the imperfections that I do. I softened the photo to make it look better too! LOL  This was the first time using my new Inspire die cut from Penny Black. It’s a set of two dies, the other one is the word CREATE!  See why I bought it??  The stamp set is one of my favorites from SU- Stippled Blossoms.

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 4.03.39 PMThe card was all inspired by this Photo challenge that we have starting today over at Just Us Girls! Isn’t it pretty?  Wish I had a foyer like that one! Please come on over to JUGS and see how the rest of the team was inspired by this photo!  While your there, I hope you get inspired to join us!  We would love it!

Have a wonderful day! Nanc’
