Here is the second card.

 

Card Info: MFT stenciled background. The silver ornaments are from SU. The bow is Paper Smooches. The leaves are Verve The greeting is Verve. The flower is SU.

There you have it! Two very simple cards!

Pink and Brown

Hello, Today starts our new challenge over at Color Hues and the colors we have for you are Pink and Brown. These just so happen to be one of my all-time favorite color combinations.  I love how quick this card came together.  I used a couple of Stampin Up die-cut sets for this card.  They are Sunflower and Seasonal Layers.  

As you may imagine the Color Hues Design Team and our guest Susie Moore did another amazing job with the colors.  Come check them out and play along.

Have a really wonderful day, Nanc’

No Line Watercoloring

Hi, No Line Water-coloring or should I say…ATTEMPTING No Line Watercoloring over at Just Us Girls today. If I had more time I would have been happy to try again but since I didn’t, I decided to do my best to hide my terrible flower with a bow! LOL. I guess I shouldn’t have picked a sheer one. LOLOLOL My dear friend Barb sent me this Gina K Designs image with a sticky note that said try no-line water-coloring with this.  I am sure she will not be impressed as she is fabulous at it. LOL  Oh well, I will try again sometime soon. 

The MFT hello die was dipped in gold glitter to add some interest or distraction.LOL  And the tag die is also MFT.

Hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS! A huge thanks to Sue our DT member that pushed us to try something new and or challenging! Come play along.

Noel, Peace, and Deck the Halls

Hello friends, Now that ETA is behind us and thankfully with minimal damage, although we did also have 9 inches of rain, and my dad is doing better with his infection, I had a chance to play along with the Colors over at The Paper Players. I sure have missed playing along with them. I thought retirement was supposed to come with all kinds of free time. LOL The colors that they have are perfect for getting more Christmas cards completed, so I decided to make two. 

Card Details: The musical background, the bell die-cuts, and the leaves are from Stampin Up. The bows on the bells are from Paper Smooches. The Sentiments are all Stampin Up. The tag die is MFT. I also used some white paint splatters too which really made the cards come to life. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you and your family are staying safe.  Somehow we will get through this, we just have to keep doing our part! Hugs, Nanc’

Word Die Cuts

Hello, We have a very easy challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls.  It’s Wild Card Week and Angie has chosen Word Dies.  I don’t know any card makers that don’t have a word die or two lying around.  The hardest part for me is deciding which one to use.  This one is from MFT.

This card is a total CASE of a card you can find HERE! I fell in love with it and had to make one for myself. Mine doesn’t look half as good as hers. I overworked my color on the flowers.  I made this card quite a while ago and I think I might try again and see if my water coloring skills have improved. I first heat embossed my flowers in gold.

The cards by the design team are fabulous this week! Come and check them out. We also have to say farewell to Karen this will be her last post with us.  Karen, It has been a pleasure having you onboard and we look forward to having you back in our gallery again soon.

Happy stamping, Nanc’

Fall Colors…

Hello, Today I had the opportunity to play along with the fabulous color combo going on at The Paper Players.  I have mixed two of my favorite Stampin Up sets to make this card. The relatively new Sunflower set is really fabulous and the older die set called Seasonal Layers I just adore.  I absolutely love these leaves!  You should have seen me frantically looking for them one day about 2 months ago when I thought I lost them.  I tore my room apart.  Then I stopped, thought logically, and started looking in other sets, and there they were!  I was so relieved! The sentiment is from Verve. I used Copics and Colored Pencil as my medium.

Yesterday I spent the entire day reorganizing my studio and I love the way it looks now!  I need to update the photos so you can see it.  I really want to paint the cabinets white someday but that will have to wait till I have more time to convince hubby that it’s necessary.  I also would like to take out the sink. When we bought this house 28 years ago it had two kitchens.  Now it’s covered with a piece of board to hold my Big Shot but you can still see the faucet. It came in handy when I ran my own daycare and I did arts and crafts with the kids.

I hope this day finds you well!  Take care, Nanc’

Ombre

Hello, It’s time again for the next Just Us Girls challenge. Lisa is our hostess and she has selected Ombre for us for our Trend.  I love this paper that I have from Stampin Up.  It’s white and has various patterns already on it and all you have to do is ink it up for an emboss resist!  I am hoarding every piece as I love it so much.   The rest of the supplies are from MFT.  I left this card Sentimentless as I don’t know who I will be sending it too. 

I hope you will drop by Just Us Girls and play along! 

Take care, Nanc’

Love-Color Hues

Hi,  It’s October 1st can you believe it?  I know we all are ready for 2020 to be behind us and despite how hard and yet mundane this year has been at times it’s still has gone by very quickly, in my opinion.  Today, I have for you the next duo of colors for the Color Hues Challenge.   As you can see by the graphic to the left the colors are gold and cream.

Card details: The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps and the Ribbon Heart die is from Poppy Stamps.  I added a few small hearts from a punch if you look carefully.

We not only have fabulous cards over on the blog by the design team we have our first guest designing alongside us. She was the winner for our first challenge-Come on over and see who it is!

Hope to see you at Color Hues and take care, Nanc’

Hey, Gullfriend!

Hello, I hope you are doing well.  Today I have a mix of two stamp sets from MFT on my card. I have been playing a lot with MFT as of late, but haven’t shared many of the cards that I have made with you yet!  These were my latest purchases with the last vault release -Seaside Seagulls and the Polynesian Paradise sets.  I have been obsessed with making cloud-shaped backgrounds using masking stencils and Acetate too. Since I am playing along with the Color Challenge at MFT I had to use be creative and use Coral for my sky. I shied away from coloring the seagull grey, as that is not one of the colors this week, so he is al-natural to go along with the colors in the challenge. The sky was done with Oxide Ink- Abandoned Coral. I used the MFT cloud stencil as well.  Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils as my medium of choice.

Of course, I have to join in the fun with my buddy Darnell over at Never Before Used Schtuff! 

I am so glad you dropped in for a visit.  Stay safe out there in this crazy world! Hugs! Nanc’
