Leaves

Hello, First, I just want to say it is not my fault! LOL! I had no choice but to get out my leaves once again, but this time I used the dies as is. I thought I would change things up a bit, so you would still visit me! In all seriousness, It’s Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls, and Bobby is our fabulous hostess and she has chosen Leaves for our challenge. Perfect for this time of year! My card is a bit on the Springy side with the colors I chose, but since it’s a Birthday card I think I can get away with it. Still trying to use up some of this DSP and I managed two pieces on this card!

Card Details: This card is a CASE of this one Here! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. The retired SU stamp set is called Colorful Seasons and the die set is called Seasonal Layers. The birthday greeting is also from SU. This card also has dimensionals for some height.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and check out what my teammates did with this Wild Card Week! Speaking of Teammates! We are saying a sad farewell to Angie over at Just Us Girls this week! To say I will miss her creativity, friendship, and kindness is a huge understatement. Angie, I wish you so long but not farewell as I know we will still see your lovely creations popping up now and again in blog land! Take care, my friend!

I also need to say farewell to our guest Nora! You have been a pure delight and I have enjoyed your cards immensely!

Happy creating, Nanc’

CAS Birthday Card

Hello, Today it is time for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday and Colleen has asked us to make a Sunset on our Birthday card. Such a perfect topping for this Florida girl! Remember out topping is optional, any birthday card will do. This is one of the cards I usually mass produce.

Card Details: I made the background with Oxide Inks and a stencil I made with acetate. The palm tree stamp is from Impression Obsession.

Now, come by and check out all the different ways the Design Team and our Guest Carol interpreted sunsets!

Take care, Nanc’

Sketch Week at TPP

Hello, It is Sketch week at The Paper Players and LeAnne has a fun sketch for us and you to try! In hindsight I should have embraced fall or winter instead of making a summer vibe card, but I had this sea horse and sand dollar on my desk and I thought I might as well use them.

Card Details: The water looking EF is from who knows because now I can’t find it! That is so strange! The sea horse and sand dollar are from Spellbinders. The Sentiment is from Verve. I did the smooshing technique on watercolored paper for my seahorse. The DSP and enamel dots are from SU.

More Leaves

Hello friends, You didn’t really think I was done with Fall leaves yet, did you? LOL As soon as I saw the gorgeous photo from Just Add Ink, I knew I had to get them back out at least one more time. To keep things in a more Fall perspective I added a dark background using one of my favorite Stampin Up colors, Blackberry Bliss.

Here is a close up.

I am going to link up again over at the Four Seasons Blog as well where their Fall challenge is still going strong.

Card Details: Leaves are all from SU and the set is retired. The greeting is from Scrapbook.com. The added gold sprigs are also SU and from the Forever Fern set. I used Oxide inks to do my blending on white card-stock.

I made another card using these colors for an upcoming Paper Players challenge so stay tuned. Take care, NANC’

CAS Birthday

Hello, It is Sunday once again and time for the next challenge at The Paper Players. It is Clean and Simple week and sweet Jaydee has picked Birthday as our theme.

Card Details: I used my deckled edged Spellbinders die to make a stencil. Then I sponged the background in various colors. Next, I stamped the Gina K Designs Hydrangea stamp set. Last, I splattered the background. The greeting is from Verve. A very quick and CAS card!

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’
