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’ .

Word Week-Sunshine!

Hello, I have two cards today for Word Week at Just Us Girls. The entire design was not my idea but something I saw over on Pinterest. (Karolyn Loncon was the original designer.)  I just fell in love with it right away.

Card Details: The sentiments are a mix of Verve dies, and two stamp sets that were given to me with no name.  You might not be able to tell but the clouds were made out of vellum and hand-cut. The Wonky rectangles are MFT, and the sun is Lawn Fawn. I also have faint score lines for sun rays. I used Oxide inks to give color to the sentiments and sun.

Before I go I would like to welcome our new Guest for this month, her name is Tristan Dawes!  We are so happy to have you Tristan and we hope you will enjoy creating with us!

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc

Garden @ The Twofer Challenge

Hello,  I finally finished my cards for the Twofer Challenge. I did have to go the more conventional route this time with my cards, as the stamp is so large and beautiful I couldn’t think of another way to showcase it that wouldn’t lose its appeal. Anyways,  I decided to cut apart one of my finished pieces to make it more of a tile look and lift two of the panels with fun foam. Then I distressed the edges. I am super pleased with how it came out.  For the second card, I went with traditional coloring.  I stamped the sentiment crooked (of course I did) after I was done coloring, so had to add the additional layer.  The beautiful stamp is perfect for this word this month. If I had a beautiful garden, rest assured, it would have an old fashioned watering can like this one.  The stamp is one of my all-time favorites and is from Northwoods stamps. The two sentiments are from Verve and I used Prisma Colored pencils.  Below are a few more pics.

I am so glad you came by!

Happy crafting, Nanc’

Fancy Folds

Hello,  Fancy Folds is our Challenge for Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she was the wise woman that selected our challenge this week. A challenge is good for all of us…especially this girl! I can’t take credit for the original design of this card you will find it HERE!

The fold itself is very simple and Joy has much better photos and explanations than you would ever get from me.  Sorry folks, but just keeping it real.  Way too much time goes into that! My card has such a mix of stamps sets. It’s a bit of MFT and Stampin up.  The EF is from Cuttlebug. I colored my little bird with colored pencil…badly it appears.  I thought it looked better than that in real life, but the card is gone so I can’t check. LOL  I have been selling so many cards at one of the local gift stores in town that I rarely have any on hand for very long.  It’s a good problem for sure.  It feeds my addiction at least!

You must come to Just Us Girls and check out the rest of my teammate’s cards…they did much better than I on this challenge. Thanks also to Marlena for being such a fabulous guest!

Take care and Happy Stamping! Nanc’

More Bees are Buzzing…..

I am back today with more Bumble Bees for the Twofer Challenge and the great sketch going on at Freshly Made! I told you I kinda got carried away and made just a few Bee cards the other day…LOL.  I have a bad habit of not wanting to waste any scraps and I had leftover Alchohol ink paper that I had to put to use, and then I had the bright negative pieces from a couple of days ago card, that I thought might be kinda fun to use.

In hindsight I am disappointed that I added the navy dots around the bee…but once I started I had to embrace it. Isn’t that DP gorgeous! I am sorry but I have NO idea whose it is.  If I had to take a wild guess I would say Blue Bunny. I got it from my Local Stamping store. Here is a closer look. The vellum bee really makes the card and doesn’t take away from that beautiful paper. The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh.  I made a mistake on the Sketch and centered my sentiment. 😦

Here is another card that really showcases the paper beautifully, and the leftover negative pieces I couldn’t waste!  The sentiment is from Verve and the enamel dots are SU.

That is all for me today!  Hope you have a fabulous day however you wish to spend it! I am going back to party planning and might make a card or two. Nanc’

Perfect Pearls..

Do you ever buy a crafting supply because you saw it on a YouTube Video (probably Jennifer McGuire) and you had to run out and buy it right away?  Then years later, you see a challenge asking you to use it and the light bulb comes on in your head and you’re like…hey, I have that stuff! Well, that’s exactly what happened this week for me! I am sure it’s happened to you too!! At least humor me and agree that it has. 😉  The funny thing is… if I just “HAD TO HAVE IT” way back then, why on earth is the packaging still intact? LOL

Okay, enough of my silly rant! Today’s card was so much fun to make using my “New” Perfect Pearls and joining in the fun over at CAS Stencil Challenge.  The Perfect Pearls is a tad messy and I highly recommend that you use a fixative spray when you’re done, so it doesn’t continuously wipe off on your hands. I liked it a lot before I sprayed it and loved it even more after I took it outside and gave it a good douse. It seemed to enrich the color.

Then I had to figure out what to do next!  I decided that I would turn the pretty paper into both birthday candles and (flowers for a later post) as to not waste a scrap. The pretty scalloped foil paper is SU made with an MFT die. The sentiment is Hero Arts, and the candles are a die-cut by Elizabeth Craft Designs. The little tiny pearls I placed in each corner are SU and match perfectly!

Here are a couple other pics!

Have a wonderful day! Nanc’

You’re the Sugar…

Hello, It was time to get ready for this week’s Just Us Girls challenge, and I had an idea for my card so I went to work. I got out my brand new jar of SU-texture paste (never opened) to realize it was completely dried out.  So luckily I came across something even better and Amazon Prime saved the day!  Have you heard of Glitter Paste? You probably have…I tend to be a little behind the trends. Well, it’s magically delicious if you ask me! Not only did I make the above card’s background, but I went ahead and made 5 more additional panels to use later.  So fun!  To start off my card, I stenciled some color down using some (new to me) Catherine Pooler ink. Next, you lay the stencil back over and use the glitter paste right over top.  That is where the magic happens and the color becomes more vibrant and sparkly.  I colored my sweet little MFT-PI stamp with Copics and colored pencil. The hibiscus stamp is from SU.  Here is a link to the paste!  You’re welcome. 😉

Here is another angle so you can see the shimmer.  Hope your day is wonderful!  Come join us this week at JUGS! Nanc’

Hello Sweet Friend

Hello,  Yes I have another card for you today.  I know…crazy huh! I love being home a bit too much.  Today’s card is for the CAS Stencil challenge. I love that Loll created this challenge, so that I may use my stencils more, and not forget about them as I often do. Thanks Loll!!!   When I was making my other card that I posted a few days ago with the same stencil, I made this one also using a different color of Dylusion Spray, Cherry Pie. In the bottle it appears to be more of a pink, but comes out red. It sure gives a great punch and so simple to do.  The sentiment is from SU and the added flowers are made with a MS punch.

Here is a picture of the spray by Ranger if you have never heard of it.  Thanks for the visit and happy stamping! Nanc’

You Make Me Smile…

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! We have a fun Color Combo for you this week at Just Us Girls. Pink, Red and White!  My card came together very quickly! I love this new set from SU…it’s called wishing You Well. The sentiment is also from SU and comes from the Colorful Season’s set. Both rectangles are MFT.  Please come on over to JUGS and join us!  We would love to have you!

I really appreciate all of your visits and your sweet comments.

Take care, Nanc’

FRIEND!

Hi,  As soon as I saw the colors over at The Color Throwdown, I was inspired to play along.  I have been wanting to use a new stencil that I got from SSS for a while now and thought it was the perfect time.  I got out my Dylusion spray (from Ranger) which just so happens to be the perfect color Fuschia to match the photo. Then I decided I would divide the panels for added interest.  It was still missing something, so I added the black inlay FRIEND using my MFT letters. I finished it off with a couple of MFT flowers, sequins, and a sentiment from Whimsical Stamps.

You will be seeing this stencil again in a few days!

Thanks for stopping by , Nanc’
