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.

1, 2, 3 at Seize the Birthday

Hi, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new topping starting that Glenda has selected for us. The topping is 1, 2 and 3. Let me explain.

You are to use 1-stamp, stencil or die-cut, 2 colors excluding neutrals, and 3 embellishments. Fun and creative right? Way to go Glenda for thinking outside the box for us.

As you can see from my card…I have one SSS-Peony Stencil, two colors-yellow and green, and three rhinestones.

I hope you will come check out the rest of my Design Team’s cards and play along.  Just remember it has to be a birthday card.

Take care, Nanc’

I often think…

 

Hello, I am here today to bring you my card for the next pair of color at Color Hues. It is our 5th challenge already…where does the time go?

The flower image I have for you today is a digi from Power Poppy. I have been wanting to print and color this blossom for quite some time but was waiting till I finally bought a laser printer to do so. Now, hubby and I are wondering why we didn’t do it eons ago. It prints like a dream and the ink doesn’t dry out!! My friend Barb got me interested in the images over at Power Poppy where she is a DT member.  If you haven’t checked out their site or her site you should. I have linked them both up for you.

After I was done coloring my Cherry Blossom with Copics I just wasn’t happy with the stark white background and decided to turn it into a tag.  That helped some, but not enough. So I decided to do the dot trick with Copics that you have seen me use before. Now I love it! I used some twine, sequins, and a fabulous sentiment from Stampin Up to finish it off. The fun DP is from Stampin Up too and I just love it!

Please come over to Color Hues and check out what the team and our guest JoAnn have done with the colors.  You won’t be disappointed, I guarantee it!

Take care, 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’

Hello

Hi!  This card is one of those cards that you aren’t sure if you love it or hate it. LOL The jury is still deliberating as we speak. I think I cheated a bit with the green as it’s more turquoise for the majority of the card.  Sorry about that Carol.  There was no time to fix it when I started to write this post. I did use a green piece of chalk for the stem and leaves of the flower though. I chalked up the flower too.  I haven’t done that technique for so long.  All you need is a Q-tip to color with.

The flower stamp is from Stampin Up, the HELLO – die-cuts from MFT, the scalloped piece at the bottom and the tab on the side are MFT dies also. I am not sure where I got the checkered stencil for the background. Everything was done with chalk.

Come by Just Us Girls and check out what our fabulous team and guest Lindsey have done! 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’

Let’s Celebrate You

Hello, I have a card today for two challenges.  I paired the colors from The Paper Players with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I still am enjoying my new SU set called Celebrate Sunflowers. In fact, my entire card is from SU. A little Copics and then enamel dots finished it off.

Thanks for popping in and I hope this post finds you well! HUGS, Nanc’

Just for You

Hello, I had some time yesterday to make a card for the new CAS(E) this Sketch…sketch.  I am loving a new to me stamp set I got from SU called Celebrate Sunflowers.  I guarantee you will be seeing this stamp set and or matching die set a lot in the near future. it is really fabulous. I started off coloring the sunflowers with my Copics with a touch of colored pencils too.  As for the butterflies, those are from Pretty Pink Posh and the sentiment is from MFT. I had this piece of cardstock already stamped with the text from Simon says Stamps waiting to be used.  As I was laying out all my pieces, I thought it looked a little plain all by itself. Mind you, I had already glued it to the back of the black frame when I decided to ink it up.  I used a piece of acetate, made myself a mask and carefully inked it with a bit of Oxide inks. I think that did the trick and made it far more interesting.

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

I hope you are having a wonderful day, however you have chosen to spend it. Nanc’

Tic Tac Toe Birthday

 

Hello, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new challenge beginning and Ashwini has picked a tic tac toe board for us to chose from.  I always enjoy these types of challenges.

I have chosen the middle row of; Inlaid-die-cutting, flowers, and water coloring.  I just love this flower from MFT and thought it would look great watercolored. I heat embossed the flower first and then while I was at it I decided to watercolor the background as well. Since I finally got the die-cut ( that is constantly out of stock over at MFT) to go with the flower it worked perfectly for the inlaid part of my row.  I finished it off with an MFT birthday greeting and some sequins.

I hope you will come check out the lovely array of cards over at Seize the Birthday…the team and our guest Jen did a great job once again.

Take care, Nanc’
