Tri-Fold Card

Hello, Have we got a fun challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. Lisa is our hostess and she asked for us to make a tri-fold card for Wild card Week. If you know me, I rarely make a card that is not your typical A2 size, so this was a good challenge for me. It certainly pushed me to do something different and shock my followers. LOL I did some Pinterest browsing and I stumbled upon a barn-door fold and decided to turn “My Barn” sideways.

Here are the pics of the inside!

Card Details: I didn’t give my Spellbinders bunny much love at Easter time so I thought I would bring him out once again. The clouds and balloon come from that same die set as well. The Grass is from MFT and the butterfly is from Sizzix and fussy cut. The inside greeting is from Close to My Heart and it’s an oldie but a goodie. I did use a dotted EF on my clouds.

Now, you have to come to Just Us Girls and check out all the various folds from the DT and I hope you will be brave like me and give a Tri-fold card a try! I really did enjoy the process. Before I go I want to tell Mac thanks for being an amazing guest at JUGS! It was such a delight having you along!

Take care and enjoy your day and hopefully, you will find some time to be creative! Nanc’

Hoping

I have been making a lot of floral cards the past few days, as I just am in love with this stencil, stamp, and die set combo from Pink Fresh Studios. It is called Choose Hope and I HIGHLY recommend it. For this particular card, I left off the dark outline stamp as I wanted a softer look.

I was inspired by the World Planting Day List over at Festive Friday. The four words I chose to work with are; Flowers, Green, Encouragement, and Stencils.

I am also joining in over at Happy Little Stampers Stencils Challenge like I often do.

Card Details: Pink Fresh Studios Stamp, Die and Stencil combo called-Choose Hope. This particular stencil that I used for the background, I don’t have the packaging for, so I am not sure whose it is. It is one of my favs too. Sorry about that. I used Oxide Inks and Catherine Pooler inks. The postage die is from Hero Arts. Clear Nuvo drops too.

Hope today you find time to do something that brings you JOY! Take care, Nanc’

JUGS-600th Challenge

Hello, Today Just Us Girls is celebrating its 600th Challenge! Quite an accomplishment wouldn’t you say! I have not been with the team since its inception but I have been with them since April of 2013. In honor of this milestone we do have a Prize up for grabs, so we hope you will play along. All you have to do is use 6 of anything on your card and or project! Rather simple I must say!

We also have a brand new Guest Designer with us, who needs no introduction, as she is very well known in this industry…Loll Thompson!! Welcome Loll, we are super excited to have you playing along this month.

I have used SIX layers on my card for today’s challenge, not including the card base, starting from the fun dotted background die to the top of my umbrella. I thought I also put 6 clear dew drops from Honey Bee Stamps but now that I am typing this up, I realize there are only 5.

I built my card around the white, grey, and pink part of the umbrella, the clouds, the greeting, and the bow from my bits and boxes drawers, so I may link up with the ladies over at Inspired By Challenge. I love cleaning out things that are too good to toss. I have been making a real conscious effort to do that a lot lately. I am also using a ton of DSP! If you look closely my white on the sentiment is definitely not as white as the card base. That bothers me…does it bother you?

A Few Card Details: The Clouds -MFT, Umbrella-Spellbinders, DSP-SU, Greeting-SU, The dotted background die-Sunny Studios, Bow die-Paper Smooches

The team and our New Guest- Loll Thompson have some great cards and or projects you must come check them out!

Take Care and happy creating, Nanc’

Hope…

Hello, I am back today as it is the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Julie has picked the most amazing color combo that I have just discovered I am a huge fan of. Turquoise and Coral! Talk about a striking pairing. And wait till you see the cards that the Design Team and our guest put together! They are all Amazing!! Speaking of Guest, we have a good friend of mine Linda Snodgrass joining us this time at CH. Welcome Linda! We are really happy to have you!

My card was made for and already received by my Brother in Law after he had major back surgery! I am happy to report he is doing well and nearly out of pain.

I am also going to join in the fun over at Happy Little Stampers-Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: The sentiment is from Altenew- Mega 4 Greetings, The seashells are from Honey Bee Stamps-Flippin Fabulous, and the leaves are inked and splattered and from Stampin Up-Tropical Thinlits. I used Oxide inks to blend my background. I used Prismas and light Copics to color.

Now, run on over to Color Hues and be ready to be dazzled! Stay safe, Nanc’
