Sketch Challenge at TPP

Hello there! I am back again today with the next great challenge over at The Paper Players. I enjoy Sketch week nearly as much as Color Week, because when designing your card the layout is done for you, and it makes things move along a bit faster… in my opinion that is. How do you feel about Sketch challenges? Do you like them? If I had more time on my hands I would start another card challenge site and the theme would be sketches. Hmmmm…maybe? 😉 Just kidding….I think. LOL

Card Details: I had such a great job playing along with my new MFT Lily dies. Of course, I had to get out that great DSP from SU that I just adore and work it in my design. The sentiment is from Stampendous. I used a bit of greenery from Stampin Up too. It is from the Forever Fern die set. I made the victorian scalloped edging with my Fiskars cutter. I use to use it ALL the time and it was kinda my signature piece on my cards and I kinda got away from it. Of course, more Honey Bee Dew Drops.

I will also be linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Birthday Challenge.

I have quite a few cards coming in future posts using these Lilies. Stay tuned.

CAS -Hello

Hello, I had a chance this morning while it was raining to make a card for the current CASOLOGY Challenge where the word is Hello. I just love rainy days, as we don’t get them all too often here in Florida. Of course, the weathermen predicted it would be an all day event and by noon it was over, hubby’s second Covid vaccine was even postponed due to inclement weather. The same thing happened yesterday, and it was all over by lunchtime. Oh well, some rain is better than none.

Card Details: I have had this drooping daisy die-cut since I started making cards eons ago, so if I had to guess it’s from Memory Box but I would just be guessing. I doubled the petal part as I don’t like it singular. I took oxide ink to both the card base, the middle of the daisy, and the stem. The stencil is brand new and from Altenew and the Script Hello is new as well and from Simon Says Stamps. I used a few dew drops from Honey Bee Stamps to finish it off. So I will be linking by card up over at NBUS with two new supplies. Here is the card that inspired me to make this one.

Thanks for dropping in to check on me, and I am grateful for your visits. Happy crafting! Nanc’

Yellow and Grey

Hello, It’s the middle of the month and time for the next hues of color to begin over at Color Hues. I have been looking forward to this color combo for quite sometime. Design Team member Karen made this selection and it’s one of my all time favorites! Did you know that it’s the Pantone Colors of 2021? I didn’t, but I love learning new things! Thanks Karen!

Here is another view of my card.

Card Details: I so enjoyed putting this card together. The new die cut set is from Sizzix and called Spring Foliage. The heart border die is an oldie but favorite of mine from Verve. The greeting is from Stampin Up. The stitched heart is from MFT.

I am going to be linking up my card over at NBUS as this Sizzix set is brand new to me.

Please come join us over at Color Hues where the Design Team has once again blown me away with their cards! The talented Amy Kolling is joining us too! Welcome Amy! We are thrilled to have you along with us!

I hope you have a very enjoyable day! Nanc’

Spring Flowers at STB

Hello, I hope you are having a good week! SUPER busy one for me. It is one of those weeks where you have something to do ever single day. It is funny how that happens and how the rest of the calendar is bare. Today over at Seize the Birthday our topping is Spring Flowers. It was selected by the queen of florals herself-Tae Eun.

Card Details: Luck for me I have a dear friend that I borrowed this set from and I knew it was going to come in handy for this challenge. It is from Pretty Pink Posh and called Crocus Flowers. First, I heat embossed both the stems and the flowers in white and then came back and did a very quick watercoloring. A watercolorist I am NOT! I did a little Oxide ink and splatters on my background and the greeting is done on the computer as I am really tired of my birthday stamps and I wanted the perfect tone of lilac. A few Honey Bee Dew drops and I was done.

I am also going to link my card up over at The Flower Challenge where they are looking for Pastel Flowers.

Hope you will pop on over to STB and check out the amazing cards from the Design Team and are guest Lynda and play along! Remember the topping is optional, any type of Birthday card will do.

Happy crafting, Nanc’

Springtime Flowers

Happy Easter Sunday to you and yours! Over at The Paper Players we have the perfect theme challenge starting today. Jaydee has chosen Springtime Flowers for our inspiration. When you check out the pretty graphic below, you can’t help but get inspired. Hubby and I have planted more flowers this Spring than in years past and it’s been so much fun and therapeutic. I just hope the 90 degree heat doesn’t come on too strong this year and or soon, so we can continue to enjoy them a little longer. Fingers are tripled crossed.

Card Details: I have quite a mix of supplies for this card so if you don’t mind, if you want to know about any piece of it please send me a message. I will say, a lot of it is from SU and the DSP in my opinion is the star of the show!

Before I go, I am also linking my card up over at Inkspirational where the have a new prompt, GROW.

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

Hi

Hello, Happy Saturday! It’s Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Vicki has a pretty one for us! It’s all about Spring Time!

When I sat down to make my card I was trying to mimic the graphic as I loved the florals in the opposite corners so much. I had all my mix of flowers and leaves die-cut and couldn’t seem to get the placement right, so I ended up wrapping them in a a piece of vellum instead. I don’t own a die-cut I just messed around with some copy paper and made myself a pattern. Still not 100 % satisfied but it had to do. The Hi die-cut letters are new to me and they are from Pink Fresh Studio and are called Kelly Alpha.

I am also going to be linking up over at Time Out Challenges where the challenge is inspired by words. Nothing says April or Spring more than a bouquet of flowers that came from a garden.

We have to say farewell to Shawna, as today is her last post with us! We have really enjoyed having you on board.

Take care and I hope to see you all at Just Us Girls this week showing off your Spring! Nanc’

Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello, I am hosting our Color Week at Just Us Girls and the colors I have chosen are Yellow, Dark Green, and Grey. Unfortunately, I have been needing a ton of sympathy cards lately. It has been a really hard few months for some of our dearest friends and relatives. And this morning as I write this post, I just found out I need another one. I love the way this turned out so I think I will just repeat this card later today for a dear colleague that lost her daughter to cancer. So much sorrow in the world right now.

Card Details: Most all of the dies are from SU, the stenciled background is called Groovy-I think! The greeting is from Verve.

I would love to see you join us at Just Us Girls this week! Take care, Nanc’

Peach and Green

Hello, Hope this post finds you well. It’s time for our next duo of colors at Color Hues. The color combo that the lovely Carol has chosen for all of us is Peach and Green. This was such a fun challenge for me as Peach isn’t something I use very often. I will tell you a funny back story real quick. I was working on this challenge at a friend’s house about a month or so ago and I was so happy with how my card was turning out but had plans to finish it when I got home. Later the next day, I sat down to finish it up and when I was looking at it I realized I was staring at peach and grey. LOL Have you ever done that? Let me just say it’s not the first time. You may just be seeing that combo sometime this year. LOL

Card Details: I have a mix of supplies for today’s card. Surprise surprise. LOL I just love the dotted background die that I just got from Sunny Studios called Frilly Frames Polka Dot. It comes with an outer frame and is actually a lot bigger. I cut it down to fit the size I wanted for my card. The flowers and greeting are from Stampendous, and the flowers are heat embossed and watercolored. The leaves are an old stamp from SU and a coordinating punch. I added the green strips of paper to bring the green back again in the design. A few pop dots for dimension and a few clear Nuvo drops to finish it off.

I sure hope you will consider popping on over to Color Hues and joining us! The team’s cards are much more phenomenal than mine-as always! I am going to have to kick it up a notch if I want to stay on this team. 😉

Take care, Nanc’

Hello…just a little something

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Sketch Week. I love sketches…do you? I feel they make the design come together so much faster as the template is made for you. Joanne has a fun one for us today! Please don’t look too closely at my card as I did a terrible job inking the sky and grass. I didn’t have the stamp set to make a mask with, so I was inking around the image as carefully as I could. I had borrowed this stamp from a friend and only stamped a few, and I didn’t want to waste one of these cute little bears on a mask that was going to get all inky.

Card Details: Bear is from Ellen Hutson, Flowers- Colossal Con-flowers in the background are from Gina K. (also given to me from a friend). The greeting is a mix of Gina K. (a little something) and (Hello) is Papertrey Ink. The sky -MFT stencil, the grass is also an old MFT die that I used to make a stencil. The tag, flowers, and rectangle dies are all MFT. The butterfly is a MS punch.

Come see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team did with this challenge, you truly will be inspired!

Wedding Wishes

Hello, It is the middle of the month already, and time for our next choice of colors at Color Hues. The colors I have chosen for us our Navy and Cream. As soon as I picked my colors I knew I was going to make a wedding card. When I think of cream I always think wedding. It’s such an elegant color don’t you think?

Here are a few card details: The fun heart die background is from MFT. The designer paper, the heart stamp, the circle die, and the greeting are from Stampin Up. The scalloped die is from Spellbinders.

You need to run on over to Color Hues and check out what the incredible design team did with the colors. We also have the fabulous Julie Peddicord joining us this time as our guest. Welcome, Julie!

Try to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’
