You Inspire Me!

Hello, I hope this post finds you well during these trying times in our life.  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a color challenge beginning.  This isn’t the card I intended on posting for this challenge, but luckily I made another one yesterday (not realizing at all) that it was in the same color pallet of our challenge starting today.  Anyways, you see my computer crashed and I took it in to be repaired and my other card is on that computer.  I sent it to myself via email, and now can’t find it on hubby’s computer. So here is card number two!  I feel silly even explaining this to you when there are real problems we are facing.  I wish I could drive to California and retrieve my family and bring them here!  This is seriously getting real folks!

I hope in the midst of all this uncertain times, if you feel like crafting you will consider playing along with us at Just Us Girls.

These cards were fun to create and let me escape the real world for a bit. I made my own stencil using a VERVE leaf.  I found this gold shimmery gel in my studio closet and it worked perfectly!  The background was first sponged with Oxide Ink.  The inspire die is by Penny Black, the flower and YOU are MFT, and the Me So Much is from SU.  The little flowers were also sponged with the gold gel.

Here is a pic of the background and the stencil gel I stumbled upon.

 

Here is my second card!

Hugs to each one of you and hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS!  Nanc’

Spring Animals

Hello,  Yesterday after hubby and I took a very relaxing walk I went to my studio for some quiet time and this is what I did.  I knew as soon as I saw the Twofer Challenge for the month I would be joining along. I have a cute MFT stamp set that had yet to be opened, so it was the perfect opportunity to break that seal.

Details: MFT stamps and Dies, Spring Sentiment is from Michaels, the Happy Birthday stamp is SSS, The Tag die is MFT, Lawn Fawn Hilltop dies, clouds stencil MFT, and Washi Tape. Colored with Copics and a smidge of colored pencils along with Oxide Inks for the clouds. One of my cards was inspired by this darling card HERE!

Thanks so much for popping by! Your visits and comments are so appreciated.  Take care of yourselves, Nanc’

Just for you…

Hello, and happy weekend! It’s time for Photo Week at Just Us Girls.  I must say when I started thinking about this card my mind went one way and the card completely ended entirely a different way by the time I was done. Sometimes that happens and it’s part of the process…right?

For my card, I have a mix of companies…Gina K-Stencil, Pretty Pink Posh-Butterflies, Altenew-sentiment, Paper Trey-Edge die, Oxide Inks.

Thanks to both of our Guests…Hannelie and Mary for being with us this month!

Before I go I have to share a picture of Lisa Kind (another JUG Head) and I together.  She was on vacation in Florida recently and we met one morning for coffee and breakfast. I absolutely love meeting fellow DT members and she is as sweet and as “Kind” as I thought she would be.  Lisa, I am so very glad we could make it happen!

Please ignore my stance as I was trying not to look like a giant as I tend to do. LOL

Head on over to Just Us Girls and check out the team and our guest cards, you won’t be disappointed!  Nanc’

Sweets at The Twofer Challenge

Hello, Today’s cards are for the Twofer Challenge this month and the word Darnell has for us is Sweets. I have been thinking hard about this challenge for about two weeks and finally an idea came to mind this weekend. I knew I had a chocolate stamp set from Verve that was going to work perfectly for the one card, but I wanted to come up with something clever to do with the melting chocolate on the second one and then it dawned on me….dripping paint. Not sure why that took two weeks to think of, I mean for peet sake it looks like dripping paint. LOL

Here are some card details: First card: U and dripping chocolate is from Verve, the Color my World is Lawn Fawn, the Colored Pencil is from Paper Smooches, and the Sweet Friend is from SU, and lots of Dimensionals too on both cards. Second card: All the stamps are from Verve except the Love and Hugs is from W plus 9. The Chocolate die-cut is from Verve as well,  I have Wink of Stella on my chocolate to give it some shimmer but it doesn’t show in the photo much. I made MANY attempts with crystal Effects, but it turned into a hot mess. I colored the chocolate pieces with Copics, and the Dots EF is SU.

Here is a pic of the stamp set I used.

You have a few more days before this challenge closes! You should definitely play along!  Thanks for your visits as they are so very much appreciated, Nanc’

Card Details: Oxide Ink Background, used the MFT cloud die upside down for my “White-Capped Waves”, the sandhill is sponged and splatted and then cut with an edge-die from Papertrey Ink, Palm Trees and bare feet are Kitchen Sink Stamps, the Miss You is Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc’

Sunflowers

Hello, Boy was I excited when I saw this gorgeous photo for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls.  Who doesn’t love sunflowers…am I right?  I knew I had this gorgeous Gina K. sunflower stamp just waiting to be colored in my studio.  It’s not my stamp, but one I stamped when I was visiting my friend Barb this past summer.  It’s always fun perusing your friend’s collections and bringing them back home to use on future cards. Before I go I need to say thanks to Janet Ribet for being with us this month! You were a joy to have on board and do amazing work.

Have a great day and hope to see you at Just Us Girls. Who knows you may be our next guest!! Nanc’

Card Details:  Gina K-Sunflower and sentiment, Brick Wall EF-SU, MFT rectangles- both stitched and scalloped, Copic markers.

Critters and or Chickens

I am down to the wire but wanted to be sure to play along over at the Twofer Challenge.  I love this challenge and do everything in my power to play along when I can. The word Darnell has for us this month is Critters.  That leaves it wide open, as the definition is “any living creature”, hence my above chickens.  It was nice creating after dinner last night after a long Monday at work. Stamping is not something I do a lot during the week, but it was very relaxing last night and maybe I should try it more often. It helped that hubby made dinner too.

I should have left well enough alone, but unfortunately decided to outline the hey chick in brown.  Looks terrible. 😦 Such is life! 

The first card is for a good friend of mine that is need of a pick me up. I am the tall chicken In the back, as she is not even 5 feet tall. LOL The second card is a Birthday card with the sentiment on the inside.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Card details: 2-Stampin up stamp sets, EF is also SU, Dies are a mix of Sizzix, MFT and SU. Copic markers and colored pencil, and the button is from MFT. The inspiration came from this card.

Card Details:  Flowers, heart, hello, rounded rectangles and regular rectangles are all MFT, and the heart border is Verve.

I sure hope you break out those die-cuts and join us! You may even be selected as our Chic of the Week, and then a possible Guest designer with 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’ .
