Stencil is the Topping!

Hello, The month is flying by and it is time for the next topping at Seize the Birthday! We also have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us! I would like to welcome Carol McFarland to the team for the next two months! Welcome, Carol! We are so happy to have you with us!

I finally broke the seal on this new stamp and die set from Pink Fresh Studio called Layered Bouquet and I did a terrible job die-cutting my stamped images. The stems don’t look so centered but the flowers were okay so I went with it.

Card Details: Pink Fresh Studio-Layered Bouquet, Stenciled Background- Honey Bee Stamps called Fluttering Hearts and the sentiment is Stampin Up.

I sure hope you will pop on over to STB and check out what the fabulous Design Team did this time around and join us! Remember, the topping is optional any Birthday card will do!

Take care, Nanc’

Happy Birthday for Color Week

Hello friends, Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Color Week and Ann Marie has selected some a great pallet. For my fourth color, I obviously chose green. Don’t look too closely you’ll see that my polka dotted paper is not straight. I hate when the happens! It really, really bugs me? How about you?

Card Details: Tree, grass and deer are all MFT. The sentiment is a sticker and actually made out of wood and something I have had sitting in my scrap box forever. I put a piece of green behind the tree and then came back with a lighter color and pieced it back together in various spots leaving some still inlayed. I added the peach hearts and then finished it off with some quick Copics and Prismas on my cute little deer.

Cakes

Second post of the day! If you are looking for Inspired By Challenge please scroll down!

Hello, I hope your week is treating you well. I am here today as the new topping is starting over at Seize the Birthday! Shirley is our hostess and she has selected the perfect topping for our Birthday Challenge…the word is Cakes! All I can say is YES please! Carrot Cake if I was to choose!

Card Details: This is a very simple card that I don’t entirely love. It all started with this cute little cake stamp that I have neglected completely from SU. Then I had these great celebratory themed die-cuts that I purchased probably six years ago that needed some attention. The candles are a small set that I have also had forever from Michaels. My enamel dots are from SU and match the colors perfectly!

Now head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out my fabulous team and our guest Jenny’s cards! You are certainly going to be inspired!

Hello-Happy Birthday!

Hello, I am back with my second post of the day! It is time once again for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday! Barbara is our fabulous hostess and she wants us to use either Faux or Real Stitching on our card and or projects. I was pleased to see that some of the other DT members joined Barb and did some real stitching on their cards, as I went the easy route and used stitched die cuts on mine.

I am also linking up over once again at the Global Design Project where they have a color challenge going on!

Card Details: Both tags are from MFT and cut from some fun DSP! The sentiments are a mix of Papertrey Ink and a Rubber stamp I have had for eons. The phone is also Papertrey Ink. The speech bubble outlines are from Stampin Up. Some silver twine, Nuvo drops, and dimensionals complete the card.

Now come on over to STB and check out my wonderful team’s cards and play along with us! Remember our topping is optional and any type of Birthday card will do.

Take care and stay well, Nanc’

By the Numbers

Hello, It’s Sunday and I am back with the next Theme Challenge over at The Paper Players. The lovely Leanne is our hostess and she has picked a fun one for us! It’s all about numbers! As soon as I saw this theme coming up the pipe line, I knew what stencil I was going to use and it’s bu the crafter’s Workshop. I have made a card very similar to this one in the past.

This card wasn’t suppose to have a fall color vibe to it, but that is where my creativity took me for two reasons. First, my blending brush must not have been cleaned off enough and my orange Oxide Ink came out on the browner side of things. Then, the bottom of the card started off with tiny candles on it, and it became a hot mess, and I didn’t like it at all. So I ripped them off and ended up with some spots that I needed to cover up. I decided it was time to take a walk and think about it for a bit. I finally decided, why not embrace the fall colors after all, it is the beginning of September and break out some leaves. I sponged the white paper with the same ink of the background, and popped the leave dies up with some dimensionals. The sentiment and leaves are both from Stampin Up. I still don’t love the card, but I did save it from the depths of the circular file.

I am also going to link my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their challenge of Birthdays!

Pastels

Hello, Today over at Seize the Birthday, JoAnn is our lovely hostess and she has chosen pastels as our topping. As I am typing this post I realize that I might have screwed up a bit as my sentiment is not quite in the pastel family! However the rest of the card is, so hopefully all will be forgiven.

Card Details: I started off with some watercolored paper and the smooshing technique for my background. All the various types of foliage are from Stampin Up. Some are inked card-stock, regular card-stock, or some were cut out from the leftover piece of watercolored paper from the background. The scalloped rectangle is MFT and the greeting is from Taylored Expressions.

I appreciate you stopping by today! I hope you will head on over to Seize the Birthday and see what my fabulous Design Team did with our topping! They are sure to inspire you!

Take care, Nanc’

HAPPY birthday

Hello, I am back today with a very quick card for The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge where sweet Jaydee is our hostess. I chose the row going down of- feminine, birthday and floral.

Card Details: The DSP is that older special paper from SU that I talk about often and just adore. I certainly wish they carried it full time. It comes in all different patterns and all you have to do is put ink on it for an emboss resist. I LOVE IT! Really makes for a quick card when you are in a time crunch. I use if very sparingly and keep every scrap. The sunflower and leaves are also from Stampin Up. I added a few gems and a greeting and I was done.

Have an Amazing…

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! I am back today with Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Lisa came up with a pic that I really quite enjoyed.

As soon as I saw all the circles my thoughts went right to this old Poppy stamp set from Verve. I tried to omit the leaves like in the picture, but in the end I just thought it needed a few. My flowers have Wink of Stella on them and loads of dimensionals. The Sentiment is from Verve. I also felt the flowers needed to be grounded somehow so I added the back strip. The background was inked with Oxide Ink!

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out the rest of the cards by the Design Team and guest. Speaking of guest, today is our last post with Claire! Thanks for being with us Claire, we have really enjoyed having you tagging along with us!

Take care, Nanc’
