Happy Birthday at Color Hues

Second post of the day! Please scroll down if you are looking for The Paper Players!

Hello, Here we are to the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Lindsey has chosen a fabulous color combo for us. My son made a great suggestion the other night when I was asking him about a computer problem I was having, he showed me how to add a little animation to our graphics at Color Hues. I was giddy as a little kid when I was done. It doesn’t take much to make me happy! And it’s fun to liven things up once in awhile! What do you think?

Card Details: All dies and or stamps are from Stampin Up and the DSP-who knows!

As I always say but is so very true…the Design Team and our guest Janet did an incredible job with these colors…please come by and check them out. Then, I also hope you join us!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Polka Dots

Hello, Happy Sunday! Today over at The Paper Players, it’s CAS week and the theme is Polka Dots. The sweet Anne Marie is our hostess this week. This is my Second card this week using a fun background that I made a few weeks back that was just waiting to be used on a card. Not sure I like this one as much as I like the Lily card I made for STB, but it will have to do. If you didn’t see that post, just scroll a few posts back and you will find it.

I am also linking up with the gals over at Happy Little Stampers and their Anything Goes with Stencils challenge.

Card Details: Background shape was made with a stencil I made with a Spellbinders Die. Then I used Honey Bee Stamps heart stencil and Oxide Inks to make my background. The Butterfly die is from Saavy that I backed with Polka dotted paper. It was a very quick card to put together.

For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

Celebrate Your Day

Hello, It’s time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has a pretty trio for us. Before I get much further, I promise that the side piece of my card is more on the lavender side of things than blue as it appears in the picture. Plus the sentiment and the center of my lilies are dark shade of purple as well.

My philosophy when it comes to color challenges is, as long as your in the same color family and didn’t throw in a bunch of random colors that aren’t in the challenge or graphic you should be good to go. I believe the team would agree!

Once again I am playing along with the Happy Little Stampers Challenge– Anything Goes with Dies and The Global Design Project as their theme is Birthdays.

Card Details: MFT- Lily dies, the Greeting is from Verve, The scalloped, rectangle, and the rounded edge dies are all MFT, the tag die is Spellbinders. The DSP…who knows. I have a few Dew drops on there too.

Come play along with us at JUGS! We would love to have you!

Take care, Nanc’

Flip Flops

Hello, These cards will look familiar but I promise they are new, and I have not shared them before! This design is just one I have made before and just really enjoy. The stars above are a new idea.

A stamp friend of mine is hosting a Beach theme challenge over at Make the Cards Challenge and I wanted to support her and play along. Plus, I needed some more beachy cards for the stores, so it’s a win win. If you have not heard of this challenge, you should go check it out! There are tons of fabulous cards over there by Donna and the Design Team.

Here are two more!

Card Details: Stamps and Dies are all from Honey Bee Stamps, The backgrounds are done with Oxide Inks. The coloring is a bit of Prismas and Copics. I have put Crystal Effect on the straps of the flip flops to make them shine. I either used gems, dew drops, or sequins to finish them off. Oh, and lots of dimensionals too.

Thanks for popping in! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and or weekend, Nanc’

Happy Birthday, Beautiful

Hello, We have a fabulous Topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday. Colleen chose Bouquet, and I think everyone is really going to have fun with this one, I sure did.

I am also joining The Flower Challenge as they asked us to use our Favorite Flower. I have always loved lilies since I was a kid as my mom had them all over the yard. Now, I do too. I love that there are so many variations of colors. I just bought some new Night Lilies this year. They are a deep dark purple and white.

They are still celebrating their 2nd Birthday over at AAA Birthday, congrats to them! So I am linking once again with the fun over there.

Card Details: I had this background waiting on my desk for a few weeks now and wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it. It was made with Oxide inks, white pigment ink, and a Heart stencil from Honey Bee Stamps. I first made the outline stencil from a very old Spellbinders die. The beautiful lily die is from MFT and I just love how they look. The greeting is also MFT and comes from the Birthday Buddies Stamp Set.

Now, come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the rest of the DT’s lovely cards and join us!

Take care, Nanc’

Sorry

Hello, Today starts the color challenge over at The Paper Players and Laurie has chosen a very nice color combo for us and all of you. As you can see the colors are Red, Black and Grey. I needed to make a pet sympathy card and I knew this color combo would work perfectly. I have made one similar to this one in the past for a dear friend.

Card Details: The paw print die cut I do believe is from Taylored Expressions, I didn’t order it but it was stuck in as a freebie which was a nice surprise. The heart is MFT and the greeting that didn’t stamp well is from Neat and Tangled.

Layers at Just Us Girls

Hello, I am back again today for the next Trend Challenge at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has chosen layers for us this time around. Even though lately I am trying to change my card making style to be more Clean and Simple, layering is really where my wheel house generally is. So this wasn’t difficult at all. I think I have 8 layers in all.

I am joining in the fun over at AAA Birthday where they are celebrating their 2nd Birthday! Congrats AAA!

Card Details: All the die cuts are from Stampin Up. I just love this sunflower die set so very much! And the greeting is from Stampendous. I used my Fiskars victorian blade to get my pretty border. I bet I have had both pieces of DSP for at least 10 years. A few gold sequins to finish it off.

Come by JUGS and join us! Happy creating, Nanc’

Sketchy Christmas

Hello, I am back today as I promised with one more Christmas card that is for the fun sketch going on over at the Global Design Project. This card is using one of my favorite color combinations, pale pink, kraft and white. Thanks to this sketch for motivating me I have 17 Christmas cards done! YAY!! I made another 5 or 6 with this sketch and the other designs will be posted at another time.

Card Details: It started with a SU Die set called Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I used part of the set for the fun base of my wreath. Next, I used my Impression Obsession small Poinsettia dies (that I love) and cut out two poinsettias. I decided to add some more foliage using white, kraft, and taupe and those are from SU-the Forever Fern set…One of my FAVS! The greeting is from another sentiment SU set that is a decade old. A little sparkle and I was done. Such a quick and fun card to put together.

Here is a close up look.

Thanks for the visit, Take care!

Christmas in May

It’s Christmas in May here in my studio! Is it too early? I am good with it, as that means I am getting a jump on start on some Holiday cards. You know every year it sneaks up on us rather quickly. I loved how this card turned out. It all started with the Colors of the Color Throwdown in mind. I actually ended up making 6 more in various colors when I was done with this one. My morning plans got changed, as I was suppose to be with my dad as he was scheduled to have some tests done and it was canceled, so I decided to make the most of it and spend the day creating. It was a nice relaxing time, creating for me and nobody else.

Card Details: My card Base is Ivory! I finally cracked open this SU Die set called Swirly Scribbles Thinlits that I have had for probably a few years. Not even kidding! I used part of the set for the fun base of my wreath. Next, I used my Impression Obsession small Poinsettia dies (that I love) and cut out two poinsettias. I decided to add some more foliage using kraft and blue and those are from SU-the Forever Fern die set…MY FAV! The greeting is from another SU set called Cherish the Season. A little sparkle and I was done. Such a quick and fun card to put together.

I am also going to play along once again over at Addicted to Stamps and More, as the Any Occasion Challenge is still going on.

Thanks for stopping by! I just might be back tomorrow to share another Christmas card.

Float

Hello, It’s Saturday once again and time for Word Week at Just Us Girls. The word we have for you that was selected by Sue is Float. Such a fun idea for this time a year for this Florida girl.

I am joining in the fun over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge. My card fits perfectly with the row Child/ Shimmer, shine or Glitter/ embossing. I have the girl, her bathing suit is sparkly, and I used and EF.

Card Details: I started off making my alcohol inked background to replicate water. I couldn’t get my silver to move around very well and looks a bit clumpy, but it was fun to get messy anyway. I colored my MFT PTI Hey Sunshine stamps with Copics and Prisma colored pencils. I decided to leave the sentiment panel blank for now. The dotted EF is from SU, I do believe. I used a stitched edge border die from MFT as well. I paper pieced her bathing suit with some silver glitter paper. I think that about does it.

I hope you will head on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the rest of the team did with our word FLOAT. We also have a brand new guest with us this month! WELCOME Jacinda!

If you decide to play along, and then happen to WIN Chic of the Week, you might just end up becoming our next guest designer.

Take care, Nanc’
