Something Sweet!

DSC_0171

Hello Everyone, We have a fun topping for you this time around over at Seize the Birthday! The topping is something Sweet!  Easy and delicious …huh?  This card came together rather quickly once I found this great DP in my stash. My cupcake has this awesome sprinkle glitter on it ( it’s one of those things you find in the bottom of your craft box, and it’s amazing, and you know you will never be able to find it again ) it almost looks good enough to eat!  I have used many different companies on my card, I tend to do that a lot! Let me know if you have any questions about what is what!

You MUST come on over to STB and check out the DT’s cards…They are all fabulous!

School is nearly out and I have a three day weekend ahead of me! Yippee! Take care, Nanc’

You Make Life Magical…

Hello Friends, It’s time again for another fun challenge over at Seize the Birthday! The topping for this go around is Creatures or Animals.  I will say that this MFT stamp set inspired my topping idea! Aren’t these dragons just the cutest?  My family and I have a thing for dragons. I will be saving this card for my son’s birthday for sure! He will love it even if he’s 25. LOL Over at STB we have a new Surprise Party Guest joining us…her name is Cathy Roffey. Also, one of our fabulous DT members is also back with us!  Yippee! Welcome Back Patti! I am over the top excited that you are back!  Okay, about my card….I colored this cute little images with my Prisma colored pencils and the clouds are from Lawn Fawn.  I use the negative pieces from my MFT rectangle scallops for the double frame.  Come on by STB and check out the amazing cards from the entire team and consider joining us!

I so appreciate all your visits,  Happy Stamping! Nanc’

Beachy Birthday!

Hello Friends,  Boy the weeks just keep flying by! It’s Thursday already, and time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday. We have NO Topping this time around, as long as it’s a Birthday card and or project, you are good to go!  I don’t know if I mentioned this here before, so if I have my apologies.  I am now selling my cards at a Local Boutique and Makers Market and it’s keeping me really, really, really busy!  The store is not even 5 miles from the beach, so the card above just so happens to be for the store. They say my beachy cards are popular…so I will oblige them!  The card is watercolored for the most part and highlighted here and there with Prisma colored pencils. The multi step palm tree stamps are from Kitchen Sink. The sentiment is my go to from Verve!

Before I go I hope you will consider joining us at Seize the Birthday, my team and our Surprise party guest Anita have done a fantastic job. Hope you will consider coming on by and checking it out for yourself! Happy Stamping, Nanc’

CAS Watercolour Challenge!

Hello Friends,  I have been eyeing this Challenge over at CAS Watercolour, and was delighted when I had sometime to play yesterday, that the challenge was still open! Yeah me! So I went straight to work and this is what I came up with.  I know I could have given the flowers a little more depth of color, but I was so afraid I would ruin it, that I decided to leave it be.  This card took me no time at all to create.  When you use heat embossing it sure makes it a breeze. I decided that it might be kinda fun to poke holes in the watercolor paper and tie a tag to the bouquet so to speak.  I think the tag came out perfectly. This stamp set is from Stampendous and is called Bouquet for You! I actually used only one stamp set and didn’t mix and match this time. It’s a rarity for sure!

I sure hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for dropping by! Nanc’

Color Week @ JUGS!

Hello Friends, Over at Just Us Girls Ina has a great color combo for us, and you for that matter!  She has selected Pink, Peach and Lemon.  By golly, if those colors don’t scream Spring and Easter, nothin’ does!  Of course, I didn’t go the Easter route, I went Spring and Birthday!  I have been stuck in a pattern lately of using strips of colors on my cards. I am really happy with this layout, in fact I made 4 additional ones in all different color combos. However, I am saving those just in case I need them down the road for another DT challenge.  Sometimes you have to have backups in your arsenal. You know what I mean?  The butterfly die is from Savvy, and the sentiment is my go to from Verve! This card was not my own and a case of this beautiful card Here!

Hope you will make your way over to Just Us Girls for this challenge!  Have a blessed Easter too! Hugs, Nanc’

Two Patterned Papers

Hello Friends, We have a fun Topping for you this time over at Seize the Birthday.  What I have asked the team and our guest Anita to do is to add two patterned papers to their card and or project. Easy peasy huh?  I hope if you are reading this, you will consider joining us sometime over the next two weeks! Plus you must go check out what the team has created!  They are so very talented! For my card…. I mixed and matched a lot of companies. I have MFT (scalloped and border die), Verve (word die and cupcake), Elizabeth Craft Design (candles), and Stampin Up (sentiment).  The paper is from who knows where???  I have so many pieces of scraps that I am determined to put to good use…before they swallow me up alive!  I used some Wink a Stella and some sparkly glitter for the top of my cupcakes!  Can’t have a cupcake without sprinkles!

Take care and happy stamping, Nanc’

Vellum at STB!

Hello Friends,  We have a fun topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday and that is to use Vellum on your card and or project! Easy huh?  I first want to clarify that this card was not my original idea!  Below is the GORGEOUS card I CASED! I can’t find the original post!  I know it’s from someone I follow regularly.  Looks like a Laurie Schmidlin card from Just Give Me Stamps if you ask me, but I can’t be certain! Heavy sigh!  Any hoozal…life must go on! My card is for a dear friend of mine that is turning 80 very soon. The stitched rectangle, banner dies, flowers, and floral leaf are all from MFT. The bow is from Paper Smooches and the vellum tag was cut with my SU tag punch and scalloped with my Fiskars victorian blade. The Happy Birthday that I divided is from Verve. Such a quick and fun card to put together.  I think before I stick it in the mail it needs some bling!

Have a great day and please come and join us at Seize the Birthday…my teammates and Surprise Party Guest Anita did a fabulous job! Happy Stamping! Nanc’

Black and White and One more Color.

Hello Friends, It’s the middle of March (Yikes) or time for March Madness, according to hubster, and also time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday.  Today’s topping is Black and White and ONE more color.  I chose to use Kraft as my other color, as I was in need of a Masculine 60th Birthday card for my Brother-in-law.  I am really enjoying this new SU set- Lift Me Up, as you might have noticed! The card that inspired me is HERE!  The team and I would love for you to join us at STB for this fun challenge and you must come on over and see what the team and our guest Anita selected as their pop of color!  Hope to see you there!

Spring Break starts today for me at 3:30!  Yipeeeeeee!  Nanc’
