Miss You

Hi,  Here I am back with another post for Just Us Girls.  I don’t know about you but it feels kinda strange writing a post and acting like things are fine.  However, here I am once more!

Today’s card is a nice mix of lots of things, The polka-dotted and green paper is actually DP but the piece in between was sponged using a stencil. The flowers stamp and vases are a mix of SU and Gina K., and the flower die is MFT.

Before I go I would like to say thanks to Vicky Hayes for being such an amazing guest with us this month!

Please, if you are crafting (and your mojo isn’t gone) and you don’t know what else to do with yourself, consider joining us this week at JUGS!

Stay safe and happy creating, Nanc’

A Touch of Green

I hope your day is off to a great start!  I personally have just a couple more days and it will be Spring Break!  (Insert dance party right here! )LOL. Now seriously, I am super excited for a break! It is much needed more for personal being than work. Okay, let’s talk about my card.  As much as I love how this card came to be it was inspired by this card HERE and not a design of my own.  Before I get to the card details, I would like to welcome a new Suprise Party Guest we have starting with us over at Seize the Birthday.  Her name is Stef Perry and she is someone you will definitely recognize when you pop on over to her blog and have a look. She is super talented and will be with us for both March and April.  Welcome Stef!!  So happy you are designing with us!

I am also going to link this card up over at The Flower Challenge where it’s Anything Goes and Simon Says Monday Challenge where it’s A bit O’ Green.

Card Details: I did the background with Oxide Inks, the daisies are Elizabeth Craft Designs, the fun stitched hills are Lawn Fawn, the sentiment is from two different sets by Simon Says Stamps.

I sure hope you will come by STB and check out all the cards from the design team, and while you are there decide to join in the fun!   Happy creating, Nanc’

Thank You

 

Hello,  I had a little time to whip up a card for a couple of challenges I have been eyeing this month.  The first is the CAS Watercolour Challenge where they have cool colors to inspire us and the other is Perfectly CAS where they have asked for a One Layer Card using one third or less of your card front.  This isn’t an easy task. I hope I am within those perimeters.  This is a new to me Challenge site, you should go on and check it out!

This beautiful Hydrangea stamp is from Gina K and the sentiment is from MFT. I heat embossed both the sentiment and the floral.

I sure hope you had an awesome day or are in the midst of having one! Happy creating, Nanc’

More Christmas ….Merry Merry!

I am back again as promised, with another Christmas card.  I had a lot of fun throwing this card together.  Some of my crafting friends over the years have sent me some cover plate dies and it’s always fun getting them back out to see what else I can do with them.  I do not know who makes this one, but I do know the Poinsettias are from Memory Box and the sentiment is Verve. This card really sparkles in real life as it has a coat of Wink of Stella on the florals. Don’t you just love Kraft on a Christmas card?  I certainly do!

I am going to enter my card over at Time Out Challenges where the words are Merry and Cheerful and again over at The Flower Challenge where the challenge is to use a Die.

Have a creative day,  Nanc’

The Flower Challenge-Use a Die

 

Hello…Long-time no see! I thought I would pop in today and share a card that I made for the recent Flower Challenge. The challenge this month is to use Die-cuts.  It can’t get much more easier than that.  In fact, I will be sharing another card in a few days. I have a LARGE variety of companies on this card, so if you have any questions…just let me know.  The sentiment is heat embossed and I used the smooshing technique and watercolor paper for my poinsettias.

Hope you have a great week!  Hugs, Nanc’

Touch of Red

I am so in love with the topping we have starting today over at Seize the Birthday! Glenda came up with this idea and now I think we should try it in every color of the rainbow!  Thanks Glenda! I wish you could see this card in real life, it has Wink of Stella on the flowers and is really pretty!

I am also linking this card up over at The Flower Challenge as their challenge is Spots or Stripes. This challenge inspired me a lot for this card!  I made a design similar to this one a few months back and thought it would work perfectly for this challenge.

Here are a few card details! Flowers-Stamplorations, the vase is Gina K., the stripes were made with a stencil and Oxide ink and a black pen for outline, Sentiment is Verve, the grey paper is embossed using a circle embossing folder from SU, flowers were colored with Prisma and Copics, you can’s see it but I have Wink of Stella on the flowers too, the rectangle dies are both MFT.

I sure hope you pop on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the amazing cards from my DT and guest Annie!  Speaking of Annie, I would like to thank you for being such an Amazing guest the past three months your cards have been fabulous and I know our followers enjoyed them too! I so look forward to having you being back in our gallery when you have the time. HEART HUGS!  Nanc’

Thank You for Everything and More

I have a card today for The Paper Players (Thankful) and over at The Flower Challenge it’s (CAS). I haven’t played with this Painted Harvest SU set in quite some time and the results are generally quite lovely. I think these flowers look great in any color.  I just love Crumb Cake, White and Dark Red together.

Details: I have a mix of MFT and SU on this card.

Hope you have a creative day, Nanc’

More Christmas…

hello, I have another Christmas card for you today using the colors we have starting over at Just Us Girls. Our colors are Mint Green, Shades of Gray and White. I did the smooshing technique on watercolor paper for my poinsettia and love the way it turned out.  There is a slightly darker cast on the petals that looks a tad blue but still so happy with the results. The scalloped heart at the bottom was made with a MS punch. The shaped dies are from SU and the sentiment is Verve.  Both colored card stocks are SU.

You have to come over to JUGS and see the rest of the team’s cards…they are fabulous!  While you are there, I hope you get inspired to join us! Nanc’

Gotta Love Tulips!

We have a Photo Challenge over at Just Us Girls that has so much going on you are bound to get inspired by one part or another. It’s always fun to see how different each of the DT members and guest cards are, and how each one of us is inspired differently.  Right away when I saw all the florals on the table I knew I was going to get out one of my old SU sets that I really enjoy.  I was drawn to the color orange and green that is evident throughout the photo and the pattern along the fence at the top of the picture.  That is where my triangular background came to be. I used my white background and scalloped die to pick up the rounded edges of the doilies on the table.  I used gold sequins to replica the round decorations on the fence. I used Copics and Colored pencils as my medium.

Please come by and check out the rest of my teammate’s cards and join us! Nanc’

Sprays @ CAS Stencil

Hello,  The card I have for you today is for the CAS Stencil Challenge. What they wanted us to do is use Sprays on our project. I got out my Dylusions-Funky Fuchsia spray and my SU line stencil and got messy.  So I don’t make a huge mess, I do mine inside a large piece of construction paper and an opened MFT box as a backdrop….which helps contain it and to keep it from getting everywhere on my work surface.

Here are my card details:  Copics and a bit of colored pencil, Gina K-vases, Stupendous-floral stamp and sentiment, SU-oval die, and MFT rectangles both scalloped and stitched.

Below is a picture of my spray and the piece before I colored it with my Copics. I am in love with BG10. I had to fussy cut my florals.

I pray it’s not too many layers for CAS…fingers crossed!!!

Thanks for stopping in….always appreciated.  Nanc’ .
