Die Cuts or Punches at STB

Hello,  If you think this card is very similar to one you have see recently, you are correct.  I just loved the colors I used two weeks ago for a JUGS challenge so much that I decided to make similar one for Seize the Birthday!  The topping this time at Seize the Birthday is Die-cuts or Punches. All the products for this card are from Stampin Up.

We have a brand new Surprise Party Guest for the next three months at Seize the Birthday and her name is Marianne. Welcome Marianne…we are super happy to have you!  Now, won’t you come by STB and check out the amazing cards the team has for your inspiration and while you are there consider joining us!

Take care, Nanc’

A Day to Celebrate

Hello,  We have a real easy word for you this week over at Just Us Girls.  The word is Celebrate!  This card came together rather quickly which is a good thing these days! Most everything you see for this card is from Stampin Up. The only exceptions are the scalloped die cut, Nuvo drops and ginormous gold bee. LOL

I hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week…while you are there please help me in welcoming Julie Beech who happens to be our Guest for the Month of September.  We are really happy to have you Julie and we hope you will enjoy your month with us!

Take care,  Nanc’

Rainbow!

Hi,  Hope you are having a great day! Over at Seize the Birthday our Topping for the next two weeks is rainbow. I really enjoyed making my rainbow background on this card.  Those Oxide inks are so much fun to play with!  The stencil I used is from SU, the Wishes is from Poppy Stamps and the Birthday is from Neat and Tangled, and last but not least those Wonky Rectangles are from MFT.   I hope you will consider joining my team and I over at STB for this fun challenge!  Their cards are all FABULOUS too! Seriously they are!!! You must check them out!

Before I go I would like to thank Trina for being such a Wonderful Surprise Party Guest the past two months!  Trina, I am a huge fan of your work and we hope you will continue to join us from time to time.

Take care, Nanc’

Happy 80th Birthday!

Hello,  It’s time for our next challenge over at Seize the Birthday! It’s Anything Goes (as long as it’s Birthday related )this time around and the card I have for you today was something I made quite a while ago but never posted.  A very good friend of ours and former principal was having an 80th Birthday party and I wanted to make him a special card.  My friend and fello DT member Lisa over at Just Us Girls sent me some Pivot Pop Up pieces from Lawn Fawn so that I may use it to make this pop up card. She had sent me a card personally using one and I fell in love with it!  It was so much fun to make and pretty easy too!  The fun DP is from SU, and is my ultimate favorite, and sadly no longer available.  The Stars are MFT and the greeting is Verve.  Gotta run as life hasn’t improved and time is precious!    So, Please join us over at Seize the Birthday! We would love to have you! Nanc’

Water

DSC_0147

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day so far!  Life has hit a big bump at the moment and I am hanging on by a thread! My dad (88) fractured his pelvis and I am running on fumes.  So bare with me the next few weeks or months till things settle down. Today is the start of our next challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping we have for you today is Water.  Luckily for me this card has been done for quite sometime or I wouldn’t have had anything to share with you today!  I can’t even begin to tell you where this image is from…it’s a digital I printed about 5+ years ago. I used my colored pencils, some MFT and Lawn Fawn dies to complete my card. The sentiment is Verve of course!

I sure hope you will drop by over at Seize the Birthday and check out the DT and Surprise Party Guest’s work and join us! HUGS too! Nanc’

Stripes…

Hello, The Summer is going too fast (insert crying sound here) and we have our next challenge starting once again over at Seize the Birthday. The topping this time around is Stripes.  I have recreated a card I made a while ago, but is always so much fun to do.  I adore this painter palette from Paper Smooches .  I am trying once again to give some of my older supplies some love, I mean that’s why we bought them right?  Not to use them once and file them away!

We have the talented Trina still with us as our guest at Seize the Birthday!

Card details : Happy-Neat and Tangled, Scalloped Rectangles and Birthday die-MFT, Palette and Paint strokes-Paper Smooches

Come join us over at STB, we would love to have you! Happy Stamping, Nanc’

Navy, Gold and Pink

There is a fabulous color trio over at The Color Throwdown and I wanted to make sure to play along.  Not only did the colors inspire me the picture of the Fireworks did too.

 I decided to try and mimic all the streaks and colors in the sky with the splash watercoloring technique. At first I thought the flowers came out a bit too bold, but as I put the card together it started to grow on me.  I made my heart background with this very cool SU paper that works so well with Oxide inks. It does an ink resist.  I LOVE IT, but sadly I don’t believe it’s still available. I heat embossed my leaves with gold EP and punched them out with the coordinating SU punch.

I’m also linking this up over at The Paper Players where they have their 400th Celebration going on with prizes too. Congrats to The Paper Players for being around so long. We appreciate all your efforts and inspiration!

Finally, Once again over at CAS Watercolour where they have Splash Watercoloring technique challenge going on.

Thanks for stopping in…makes my day! Nanc’

Card Details: SU Flowers, leaves, and Punches, MFT Happy die and Heart die, Neat and Tangled Birthday stamp, SU background paper that I colored with Oxide inks, Nuvo drops and pink pearl accents.

Trees at Twofer!

I have wanted so badly to join in the fun over at the Twofer Challenge this month, and couldn’t seem to settle on the perfect stamp. Then I came across a never used stamp set from Altenew, that I completely forgot I had.  They so happen to be trees!  Apple trees actually. It was fate, I tell you!  If you aren’t familiar with the Twofer Challenge you have to go check it out!  You take their theme of the month and make two completely different cards using the same stamp/ die or what have you. Darnell and the team are fabulous!

On the Elephant card I used the tops of the tree to make the clouds, the grass, bushes, and to color my balloon. Here is a picture of the stamp set so you may understand it better.  On the tree card, it was a bit tricky to line the stamps up perfectly even after lots of practice.  I think they look pretty good, but the yellow one is the best!

I so appreciate your visit.  Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Some Card details: Tree card-Altenew Apple Tree set, SU stitched rectangles, SU Thank You sentiment, Cuttlebug-Dot EF, Tag-Spellbinders

 Elephant card- MFT-Adorable Elephants, Wonky Rectangles and Sun-stencil, Sentiment-Verve

Birthday Greetings!

Hi,  Hope you week has been good so far!  I am hanging in there best I can.  Let’s just say my health has not been cooperating over the past few months and I am losing my patients to say the least.  The doctors and I can’t seem to get to the bottom of it all. I will not bore you with the entire saga, I just need to catch a break real soon. Preferably before vacation comes around! Anyhoo, you didn’t stop by to read my woes.

Today’s card got rather busy.  It was not my intention to have quite so many layers, but here you have them. The cupcake and the cute little envelope are from Verve.  As I am typing this I am trying to figure out where Birthday came from and I am stumped. I guess that means I officially have TOOOOOO MANY STAMPS! Shhhhh! My hubby might hear you! LOL

Don’t look to closely at my novo drops on my icing, they kinda got messy and over done!

I hope you will consider coming on over to Seize the Birthday and join us for our Anything Goes challenge…as long as it’s birthday related. Also before I go, I need to say a huge thank you to SonjaK for being an Amazing Surprise Party Guest the past two months! We have really enjoyed having you!  Please don’t be a stranger!   Take care, Nanc’
