Yellow and Blue

Hello, How did it get to be March 1st already? Wow, even with life being status quo and sometimes feeling a bit humdrum due to Covid, the days still seem to be flying by. Cindy is our hostess this time at Color Hues and she has two great hues of colors for us. As you can see the colors she has chosen are Yellow and Blue.

Card Details: I started off using an old Stampin Up stripes stencil to make my background. Then I stamped my leaves in blue, and die cut both of them and the white ones which are also from SU-Forever Fern. Then I found a much-neglected die cut from SU called Rose Garden and sponged a piece of cardstock before cutting it out leaving the white outline and putting it back together. Most of the color on the card was done with Oxide Inks. The greeting is from Verve! I adore the clear dew drops which I added from Honey Bee Stamps to finish it off.

I sure hope to see you in the gallery over at Color Hues. The Design Team rocked it as they usually do! Stay safe and healthy! Nanc’

Thanks-Photo Week

Hello, It’s Photo Week at Just Us Girls hosted by the lovely Sue. I hope she won’t mind but I went in an entirely different direction for my card than the rest of my teammates did this week. I took inspiration from the colors and not from the photo itself. I love the colors and am pretty happy with how quickly my card came together. Before I get to the card details, It is time to say farewell to our Guest Leslie. We have really enjoyed having you tagging along with us and I have enjoyed your cards and sweet comments too. Take care and hope to see you back in the gallery again soon.

Card Details: Stamps’ SU- Forever Fern, DSP- SU, Heart die-MFT and greeting is SU too.

Hope you will run on over to JUGS and check out my teammate’s cards! They did a great job with this photo and you are sure to be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’

Transparency or Vellum

Hello, I hope you are doing well and staying healthy. Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new topping starting that was selected by the talented Ashwini. The topping is to use Vellum or Transparency on your card and or project. I just love the look of vellum on a card it is easy to do with such a great look.

My card was very quick to through together. I am using what is certainly becoming one of my favorite stamp and die sets from Stampin Up called… Forever Fern. I used a very old wooden stamp that is also SU to make my grey splatters. The sentiment is also from SU and the scalloped dies are MFT.

Before I go I would like to say farewell to Julie Peddicord. She has been a fabulous Surprise Party Guest with us for the past two months and we are certainly going to miss her. Thanks for all your inspiration Julie.

I hope you will consider coming by STB and joining us! Remember our topping is always optional any birthday card will do.

Take care, Nanc’

Something New!

Hello, Today is my first challenge as a Guest Designer for 2021 over at The Paper Players. Insert happy dance! If you happened to miss my announcement I have linked it up for you Here! I am over the top excited to be a part of this talented team. For our first challenge of the New Year, LeAnne has asked us to use something new on our card. Well, I don’t know about you but I may have a few new things lying around the craft room that I have yet to use or I just recently purchased. The stamp and dies I chose to use for today’s card are from Stampin Up and have never been used. To my defense, I have only had them two months so not too bad. I have wanted this set from the moment it came out! It stamps beautifully and is called Forever Fern. The designer paper is also from Stampin Up and the greeting is too. This is a fast card with a great reward!

Now, please dust off some stamps that you have yet to use, or maybe break the seal on something you got for Christmas and come and join us at The Paper Players! The team and the two other guests…Debbie and Amanda have some serious eye candy for inspiration to get you started!
