Anything Goes Birthday @ STB!

Hello Everyone, Hope you are having a good week! The card I have for you today is for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Seize the Birthday! I have used many different companies on this card. Verve- leaves, Hero Arts-sentiment, MFT-banner tags, Altenew-Florals.   Please pay no attention to that horizontal faint line across my card.  I thought it would be wise to make sure the watercolored paper would adhere well to the card base after I put my adhesive on it, so I ran it through my Cuttlebug for added pressure. I read or heard that tip somewhere.  WRONG! BAD IDEA! Thought maybe some Nuvo drops would draw the eye away. LOL  The flowers were heat embossed and watercolored.

Before I go I must say farewell to Kim our Surprise Party Guest. It was an absolute delight having you with us these past two months Kim and PLEASE don’t be a stranger in our gallery, as your cards are simply awesome!

Have a fabulous day and I sure hope you will come on over to STB and join us! Nanc’

Vibrant Colors!

We have a fun topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is Vibrant Colors and as soon as I got this new Chameleon Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp from my local stamp store, I put the other card I had planned on posting to the side and decided to make a new one. After all, I had a few hours till bed and the post didn’t go live till tomorrow. Besides, I’ve got myself another sinus infection and I have absolutely no voice, so I thought a little stamping might cheer me up.

Here is a pic of the Oxide Inks I used. The stencil is from Heidi Swapp and the Wonky Rectangles is from MFT.  You must hop on over to the Seize the Birthday blog and check out the team’s cards along with our guest designer Kims, they are all so vibrant and fabulous! Nanc’

BTW….I have been messing with my camera’s settings and I am not succeeding.  The card is even more vibrant in person.

Take care!

Birds of a Feather….

Hello Everyone, It’s Thursday and time for the latest topping over at Seize the Birthday.  Our topping is BIRDS! I haven’t had this adorable set from Stampin Up for too terribly long and I just adore it. I paired it with this cute little stitched die from MFT, with my trusty over used but favorite Happy Birthday stamp from Verve.  That stamp never leaves my desk.

I hope you are enjoying your week as much as I am.  Today is our Anniversary and we are packing up the bikes for a day trip.

Hope to see you in our gallery at STB! Nanc’

Teal and White at STB!

Hello Friends,  We have a great color combo this time over at Seize the Birthday! Teal is one of my all time favorite colors and I just love the look of it paired with white as you can see above.  It’s just so clean and fresh looking, don’t ya think?

Here are a few details of what I used to make my card. Sentiment and leaves are from Verve, EF and butterfly is SU, the scalloped rectangles are from MFT. Some black Nuvo drops and glossy accents on the butterfly and I was done.

Please come on over to STB and check out what the rest of the team and our Surprise Party Guest Kim have done.  Some serious eye candy there! Nanc’

Balloons!

Hello Friends,  We have a very easy word for you this week over at Just Us Girls.  The word is Balloons. I decided to get out my favorite  MFT Adorable Elephants set as soon as I saw this challenge. They just make me smile! I also CASED this terrific card I found over on Pinterest! I just recently got the cloud stencil from MFT, so you will have to forgive me as I need a bit more practice with it.  I am such a heavy handed inker!  I also finally got the Wonky rectangles that I have wanted FOREVER and a few other goodies too! I used my faithful prisma colored pencils to color my card.

PLEASE consider joining us at JUGS this week where we have a new guest joining us! Welcome Stef Perry!  We are really happy to have you Stef!

Take care, Nanc’

Text Ya Later!

Hello Friends,  It’s time for our Anything Goes challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  I got out my fun new SU set called Text Ya Later and made a birthday card this time. In fact, I made four cards while I was at it.  Here are the rest of them.


I fell in love with this color combo and kinda got carried away with it. For some of them I even made my own background paper. I would also like to say welcome our New Surprise Party Guest this month over at STB. We are happy to have Kim Lackenbach joining us! She is super talented and I get so inspired when I see her work. Welcome Kim!  She will be with us the next two months!

 

I hope you have a truly fabulous day! Nanc’

A True Friend…

Hello,  It’s that time again!  We have a Photo Challenge for you starting over at Just Us Girls. I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  I first used one of my favorite stencils to make a background with my Oxide Inks.  Then I decided to do a little emboss resist to mimic the new growth peering through the snow in the photo. Last, I got out my stitched flowers from MFT and sponged them with some of the same colors from the background. The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.   The entire sentiment will read…..A true friend remembers your birthday …..but not your age.

Before I go I need to say thanks to Tenia for being such a fabulous Guest with us this month!

Hope to see you in the JUGS gallery this week! Nanc’

Keep Calm and Celebrate!

Hello,  It’s time for our next Topping over at Seize the Birthday!  This time around the topping is Coffee or Tea! Also, if you don’t want to incorporate the topping you don’t have to, it just must be a birthday related!  Not sure yet how I feel about this card!  It evolved so many times, that I think I am just kinda tired of looking at it! You know what I mean? LOL. If there is anything I like about this card, it’s the Coffee Set from Verve, and you thought I had packed those images away by now because of over use! LOL  The rest is a combo of MANY various products! If you have any questions just let me know!

Have a terrific rest of your week! Hugs, Nanc’

Candles

Hello Friends,  We have the perfect topping for you this week at Seize the Birthday! Everyone loves a few candles on their cake don’t they?  As long as it’s just a few and not the actual number, and you can hardly see the cake amongst the barrage of flames. LOL  Anyways, you get the picture! That is our topping this week at STB! I went with a really colorful and basic card this time around.  I do love those candle stencils from Elizabeth Craft Designs and my fun new THICK SU Hexagon EF that you can barely see in the photo. Trust me, it makes really deep pronounced lines! The sentiment is one from Close to My Heart and the flower is MFT.

Have a wonderful day and please head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the rest of the Designers cards along with our guest Kristie! Their creativity far exceeds mine this week! Hugs, Nanc’

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’
