Happy Father’s Day

Hello, I thought I would sneak away this afternoon after my son and daughter in law left and do something to distract me and keep the sadness at bay. Yes, after all these years I am still a wimp when my son leaves as we always have the best time together! He has a way of making everything better. Anyways, I started off by searching for a challenge site to play along with. I decided on a card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, as the theme is masculine.

Card Details: I still had this SU fish set on my desk which helped the card come together rather quickly. Every bit of my card is from Stampin Up and some of the stamps are old and some are new. If you have any questions, please just let me know. This card is a case of my fellow DT member Ann’s card from the Paper Players and it was made back in 2013. I just feel in love with the colors she used!

I hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’

Hello, It’s the first of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. I am you hostess this time around and I thought that the color Blue and Brown might work well for some Father’s Day themed cards. The design team and our guest Michal have a great variety of cards for many occasions to inspire you.

I took the picture of my card in doors, and parts of the card appear to be black when in actuality they are navy. There is no black on this card at all.

I am also playing along with the sweet gals over at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge where I have selected the row of Dad, Blue, and Die-cut.

Card Details: The fish and DSP are from SU, the waves are MFT, the letters are a Sizzix die, and the greeting is from Verve. Nuvo drops for bubbles.

I hope you will pop on over to Color Hues and join us! We would love to have you!

Take care, Nanc’

My Love…

Hello, Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Sketch Week and Jaydee has got a great one for us. I started off with the basis of the layout of the sketch and my card kinda got away from me a bit and I thought the background needed something fun, and that is where the anchor came in. Hopefully the team will think it’s okay, as you can clearly still see the sketch in my design. I think they call those creative liberties in the crafting/art world. LOL

Card Details: I made the negative and positive anchor with my Silhouette Cameo. The stamps are from the SU set called Whale Done. I have no idea where I got the silver stars, but they are 3d…super fun!

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

Father’s Day Card

I have a quick simple card for you today using a new to me stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  I needed some Father’s Day cards for the store and thought these would be quick and fun to do. I am going to link this up over at CASology in hopes it’s CAS enough. The speckled background behind my panels was made with a very old Stampin Up stamp. I colored my images with colored pencils and the letters are from MFT.

I will also be linking this up over at Darnell’s NBUS.

I hope you are having a great day, Nanc’

Happy Father’s Day

Hello,  Today I have a stamp set from Mulberry stamps that I bet I have had for at least 10+ years and has never been inked up. Seriously, I am not exaggerating. Now that I am starting to feel a bit more comfortable with my coloring skills I decided to give it a shot.  I have been doing a lot of coloring in the evenings, it seems to have a calming effect on me, and many others I am sure.  I used both Copic and Prismas for this piece. I added the clouds with my MFT stencil. I have been doing that after my piece is colored and you have to be a little bit more careful and have to go on the lighter side.  Now the cute little bear and his dog look as if they are trapped on an island. LOL  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I am linking this cutie up over at The Paper Players where the theme is CAS with Men in Mind.  I sure hope it’s CAS enough! Fingers crossed.

I guess I better link up with Darnell too over at NBUS.  My stamp set deserves that, as it’s been waiting for 10+ years!

Stay well and if you are a little stressed….try coloring!  I was told wine works too! Nanc’

Hi friends, Over at Creative with Stamps, it’s Masculine this month. So I got out my trusty fish set from SU and went to work.  The bold letter dies are from Sizzix, the paper is from SU, and the wave die is MFT.  I really like how the fish came out. That’s all from me today!  I head back to work tomorrow! Boohoooo! Hope I can continue all the card making that I managed to get done this summer. We shall see!

Bold Letters!

I am hosting this week for Trend Week at Just Us Girls. The trend I have chosen that seems to never go out of style is…Bold Letters. If you don’t have any Bold individual letters a large sentiment will do. I have done a little bit of both! Wait to you see all the amazing cards the team and our guest Eva came up with!  I was blown away!

This card is a mix of SU, Verve, MFT, and Sizzix.  If you have any questions let me know!

Hope you will consider joining us at JUGS! 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’

Father’s Day…

While the dessert is baking in the oven and the men in my life are on

the golf course…I thought I would take a minute and post the

card I made for my Hubby, for my son to give to him, at his request.

It goes along with the Father’s Day Theme over at

The Pink Elephant.

Here is my inspiration card I found on Pinterest.

This one is so amazing…not like mine…which is just okay! :/

The reds on my cards look a little orange…must be the lighting.

It is so much fun working with an old book…I do enjoy that!

After I took the photo I realized the script on the card says ” Weird”

right under the large star….What’s funny about it is that is my hubby to a tee.

I am not trying to be mean it’s just the truth…. lol!

If you look to the left it also says ” Smiling” which describes him too

so I feel better now.  LOL

Here is the Link and photo of what is smelling up my house

and making me drool…..YUM!
