One Layer at STB!

Hello Friends, How is the weather where you are?  We are having quite a blast of cold air here in the Sunshine State with a low of 33 this morning and let’s just say I am not a huge fan.  I live in Florida for a reason! LOL  Anyways, we shall be back in the 70’s by the end of the weekend so all is good and I get to wear my boots too, so I ought to stop complaining! Today over at Seize the Birthday our topping we have starting is to make a One Layer Card.  I don’t do many of these types of cards and I wouldn’t say I am very good at them, but as they say, you just have to keep on trying. Today’s card was made with the Altenew stamp set called Botanical Garden. I water colored it and added some splatters when I was done.  I used the most intricate brush I had for the stems of the flowers.  That was my best part…LOL.

I am also going to be linking up over at CAS Watercolour where the challenge is Birthday. Hope to see you over in the Seize the Birthday Gallery and have a fabulous day!  Nanc’

Happy New Year!

Hello,  Happy New Year to you all!  I hope your New Year is off to a great start! It’s time for our first post of 2018 over at Seize the Birthday and we are starting the year with our Anything Goes Challenge. Just remember it needs to be a Birthday theme.

I have had this piece of DP in my scraps for so long, and I was determined to find a place on a card for it, and I finally did. I paired it up with some Verve leaf dies and a sentiment, a SU EF and circle die, and some MFT flowers.  Some gold Nuvo drops to top it off.

Before I go I would also like to welcome Kristie Goulet as our Surprise Party Guest over at STB.   I have been a HUGE fan of Kristie’s for the past 8 years and am thrilled to have her guesting with us these next two months.  She is really talented and her blog Kreative Kristie is linked up for you! Please run on over and check it out!

We also have a NEW Design Team Member that I am super excited about at STB! Not only is she a hoot she is talented too! Welcome Lindsey M-P from Bashful Blogging. Please won’t you go by and check out her blog as well! 

Hope to see you around the gallery at STB! Hugs, Nanc’

Monochromatic Birthday!

Hello Friends,  It’s Thanksgiving here in the US and the food is prepared, the house is clean, and I am just waiting for my guests to arrive! My son and new daughter in law are on their honeymoon in Hawaii, (poor guys) so it’s going to be a bit different not having them here.  It was bound to happen sometime, so I am just going to roll with it, and be thankful for all that has transpired this past year!

It’s also happens to be time for our next challenge at Seize the Birthday! The topping I have for us this time around is Monochromatic. I have a thing for Monochromatic cards and a apparently so does the team.  They really did an incredible job! Speaking of team.  I wanted to say thanks and goodbye to Patti, one of my DT members.  This is her last post with us and to say I am sad would be completely TRUE! Patti and I hit it off right from the start and she promised me that even though she is stepping down as a DT member we are going to meet in person someday!  I will hold you to that Patti! You are such a sweetheart and so talented.  So don’t be a stranger and don’t stop creating! HUGS to you my friend!  I also want to Thank Becca Cruger for being such a wonderful Guest these past few months! It’s been an absolute pleasure having you Becca!

Card details: MFT tag and flower dies, Verve -sentiment and leaf dies, and my new love Nuvo Drops!

Have a wonderful day no matter how you choose to spend it! Hugs, Nanc’

Trend Week at JUGS!

Hello Friends, It’s post wedding and I am still on cloud nine!  Things went perfectly and I couldn’t be happier. One day soon I will share some pics with you here! Now onto the real reason you stopped by.  It’s Trend Week over at Just Us Girls and Lisa has asked us to try some Silhouette Stamping. Not sure my card is exactly what she had in mind now that I look at my fellow design teams cards but hopefully it will do.

The background was made with my Oxide Inks and the stamp is something I picked up at Michaels …I do believe. The sentiment is my go to from Verve along with the banners. The buttons are from MFT.

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the other cards by my talented teammates and our guest Trina.  Take care, Nanc’

Circles!

Hello Friends, Its time for another great challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  The topping is Circles this time around. The card I have for you today is a CASE of THIS card.  I fell in love with the colors and had to do my own variation of it. I used my MFT dies and my favorite Birthday stamp from Verve. Now that I look at the photo …I didn’t do a very good job of lining up the paper to align with the center of the flowers. LOL

I am still on cloud nine from my son’s wedding and entertaining out of town guests…so I am making this rather short today!

Please come by STB and see what the team and our Guest Becca have done with our topping of Circles. .

Take care, Nanc’

Anything Goes Birthday at STB!

Hello my faithful friends, It’s count down time to the wedding and it’s getting surreal and exciting. Luckily, I worked way ahead on my cards as that craft is taking a back seat currently.  Right now I am in Large Paper flower mode.  I will share some photos with you when I have more time.  So, it’s time for our Anything Goes challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  I made this card quite a few months ago and still not sure how I feel about it. However, I do like the felt balloon. I hope you will consider coming by STB and joining us, the team and our guest Becca did an awesome job as always.!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Nanc’

Card Details: MFT-Adorable Elephants-Stitched Rectangles, Happy Birthday stamp from who knows where, Prisma colored pencils, and felt.

Script or Text Background

Hello Friends, It’s so nice to be back in the groove of things and being creative again.  Not only am I stamping, but I am also working on wedding preparations again and it feels good. I really love how this card came out!  The turquoise and red are heat embossed with some really bold embossing powder.  Also, if you have never used Nuvo drops before…you need to run out and get yourself some! LOVE THEM!!!!!

Okay, we have a topping of Script or Text over at Seize the Birthday for the next two weeks and the team and our Surprise Party Guest Becca have really done an incredible job! I would love for you to come on over an check out what they have done and join us!  Hope you have a great day! Nanc’

A Birdy Birthday!

Hello Friends,  My life is back to somewhat “normal” and I am sure happy about that! If I never see another storm like Irma…. it will be way too soon!  However, we surely dodged a major bullet this time around and for that I am forever grateful! My heart goes out to all that have been impacted by all the horrific storms, and fires over these past few months around the world.  It sure makes me appreciate the small inconvenience of no power and no AC over the last 9 days. Onto a happier subject!  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Photo Week and as soon as I saw the pic Ina picked out, I knew what stamp set I was going to use.  It’s from Darcie’s.com.  Cutting out a half circle with a die was rather tricky. Here is the card that inspired me! The background was made with Oxide inks and the bird was colored with Colored Pencil.

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Linda has done!  Hope to see you in our gallery too! Hugs, Nanc’

Birthday Flyby!

Hello Friends,  It’s Thursday and time for another great Topping at Seize the Birthday.  What we have for you this time is Balloons.  Works perfectly for a Birthday Challenge blog don’t you think? As I am writing this post, I have no idea what my life is going to be like in less than 24 hours.  I am currently in the path of Hurricane Irma and to say I am worried would be entirely TRUE! So I thought I would take a break from the fretting and news watching and get my post ready early, just in case I have no power on Thursday. I sure hope that is the only issue I am dealing with by then.  Anyhoo….Enough of that! 

I sure hope you come by and join us at Seize the Birthday and while you are there please help me in welcoming our new Surprise Party Guest Becca Cruger!  Thrilled to have you joining us these next two months Becca! Here is where my inspiration came for my card!

Take care, Nanc’

Card info: MFT Dragon set and Lawn Fawn clouds.  Colored with colored pencil.
