Sending Lots of Hugs

Hello, I am back again today with another Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower card. I am still working on perfecting the shades of color on the flower by inking up either white or colored cardstock. I have another card where I am very happy with the way the flower turned out, but this one isn’t so bad. I hope to put that flower on a card very soon. Kinda wish I hadn’t put on the white dots in the center of the flower, oh well!

My card was inspired by the great color challenge going on over at The Color Throwdown. DT member Susie picked a great one that caught my attention right away. Check it out below. A lot of the supplies for this card were leftovers in my bits and boxes that I am determined to use up or organize this week. Do you have any organizational plans in the New Year when it comes to crafting? I just got finished labeling the stencils that I have in a 3 ringed binder. I am really happy about that! No more having to jog my memory on whose it is or what it’s called, it also makes putting them back easier. The binder is quite full and it appears I have an addiction to stenciling. LOL

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps inked on light yellow cardstock, Hugs die -MFT, Sending lots of-Gina K., Scalloped Rectangles-MFT, Border Punch is from Martha Stewart, Leaves are from Sizzix and embossed with a dotted EF, Nuvo drops, Inked up the flower with some Oxide Inks and a bit of Copics, White Gel Pen. DSP is a great pack from Pink and Main.

Thanks for coming by as I appreciate your visits! Take care, Nanc’

CAS Birthday

Hello, It is Sunday once again and time for the next challenge at The Paper Players. It is Clean and Simple week and sweet Jaydee has picked Birthday as our theme.

Card Details: I used my deckled edged Spellbinders die to make a stencil. Then I sponged the background in various colors. Next, I stamped the Gina K Designs Hydrangea stamp set. Last, I splattered the background. The greeting is from Verve. A very quick and CAS card!

Remembering You

Hello, I am back today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. It is time for Photo Week and Ina has chosen a gorgeous pic for us. As soon as I saw it I was inspired by the flowers, the gorgeous colors, and the wall in the background. Ina, thanks for picking something so pretty and easy for us to work with!

I will also be sticking my card in over at Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes Stencil Challenge. and also over at Addicted to Stamps and More for Any Occasion.

Card Details: I did a little masking before I began. The wall stencil is from MFT, the Hydrangea stamp is from Gina K, and the greeting is from Verve! I added my favorite dew drops and I was done. I colored my image with both Copics and Prismas. I used a white gel pen to brighten up the centers of the Hydrangeas.

Now, run on over to Just Us Girls and check out how the rest of the team was inspired! And before I go I need to say a Huge Thanks for Loll for being such an awesome guest! I am thoroughly enjoyed all of your work!

Take care, Nanc’

Sweet Friend

Hello, I hope this post finds you well. Things have been less than ideal over the past couple of weeks in my neck of the woods and stress has hit an ultimate high. So if I seem a little out of sorts that is why! I do not have the time or energy to tell you what my last ten days have looked like, nor would I do that to you, all I am going to ask is if you would please keep my father and my hubby in your prayers. On a happier note, my son and daughter in law are coming to Florida for a few days, rather unexpectedly, so that might be just what this girl needs as a pick me up and to get me back on track.

Onto today’s card! Over at The Paper Players we have a Tic Tac Toe Board created by LeAnne for you all to enjoy. I have selected the center row of circle, red and DSP, but my card would also work with the diagonal row of blue, red, and white. Which row speaks to you?

When creating my card I decided to combine it with the Festive Friday Challenge. The three items I selected were; stripes, rectangle, and bright colors.

Card Details: I have a mix of The Greetery, Gina K Designs, and SU, and a MS punch for my card. If you have any questions just ask.

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hi, I am back again today for a second post as I wanted to take part in Amy’s Spring/ Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that started today! The amount of work that she puts into these events is unbelievable! You must check out all the amazing sponsors and prizes she has too. Way to go Amy Tsuruta!

I chose to use one of my favorite sets from the Greetery for this card. The greeting is from Gina K Designs. I used a few other things from my bits and boxes for some accents. I just love the spoon done in mirrored paper.

I hope to be back with another card or two before the deadline!

In other news…Hubby got his first COVID shot today! Woohooo!!! We were back home in about an hour. What a well run site!!! We arrived at 11 and he had his shot by 11:08. The drive was 25 minutes. Take care, Nanc’

Hello…just a little something

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Sketch Week. I love sketches…do you? I feel they make the design come together so much faster as the template is made for you. Joanne has a fun one for us today! Please don’t look too closely at my card as I did a terrible job inking the sky and grass. I didn’t have the stamp set to make a mask with, so I was inking around the image as carefully as I could. I had borrowed this stamp from a friend and only stamped a few, and I didn’t want to waste one of these cute little bears on a mask that was going to get all inky.

Card Details: Bear is from Ellen Hutson, Flowers- Colossal Con-flowers in the background are from Gina K. (also given to me from a friend). The greeting is a mix of Gina K. (a little something) and (Hello) is Papertrey Ink. The sky -MFT stencil, the grass is also an old MFT die that I used to make a stencil. The tag, flowers, and rectangle dies are all MFT. The butterfly is a MS punch.

Come see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team did with this challenge, you truly will be inspired!

CAS Snow

Hello, I hope you are doing well! It’s time for our CAS challenge over at The Paper Players and the theme is Snow. I so enjoyed this challenge being a Florida girl and all. Plus it gives me a jumps start on Christmas cards.

Card Details: I made my snowbanks with Oxide Inks and a template made from a Lawn Fawn- hills die. I use acetate so I can reuse them again. The cute little Ele is from MFT, the snowflakes are from Gina K Designs, the sentiment is Gina K too. The Santa hat die is from Lawn Fawn. I used a mix of three colors to achieve the color I was looking for. Broken China, Iced spruce, and Tumbled Glass.

I am also going to link my card up over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Snow!

Sparkle and Shine

Hello, We have a fun and easy topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday! I have a quick and easy card for you using some foil mates (stars) and foil (Passionate Pink) from Gina K. Designs. This card is a lot more sparkly in real life than it shows.  Those fun candles that are also foiled and are from Elizabeth Kraft Designs and the sentiment is my go-to from Verve. I have a lot of dimension under the front panel and greeting.  The enamel dots are SU. 

Come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out all the lovely sparkle from my talented teammates and our guest Julie!

No Line Watercoloring

Hi, No Line Water-coloring or should I say…ATTEMPTING No Line Watercoloring over at Just Us Girls today. If I had more time I would have been happy to try again but since I didn’t, I decided to do my best to hide my terrible flower with a bow! LOL. I guess I shouldn’t have picked a sheer one. LOLOLOL My dear friend Barb sent me this Gina K Designs image with a sticky note that said try no-line water-coloring with this.  I am sure she will not be impressed as she is fabulous at it. LOL  Oh well, I will try again sometime soon. 

The MFT hello die was dipped in gold glitter to add some interest or distraction.LOL  And the tag die is also MFT.

Hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS! A huge thanks to Sue our DT member that pushed us to try something new and or challenging! Come play along.

Watercoloring

 

Hello, I have a watercolored card for you today that goes with our next topping that I so happen have selected over at Seize the Birthday.  I used this beautiful hydrangea stamp from Gina K Designs.  The sentiment is one of my go-to stamps from Stampin Up.  As you can see I heat embossed with white powder before I got started painting.  Some splatters, sequins, and ribbon and I was done.

I need to thank our Surprise Party Guest Jo for being with us for the past 2 months.  It’s been such a joy having you with us and I look forward to having your wonderful cards in our gallery again soon.

Please come join check out the DT’s cards at Seize the Birthday and I hope you will join us, Nanc’
