Die Cuts at STB

Hello, Hope this post finds you doing well.  Today starts the next challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is to use Diecuts only on your card and or project, although the sentiment may be stamped. I am still working on using up some of my Designer Paper and I thought this layout would do the trick.  I have made a card like this many years ago in case it looks vaguely familiar.  I find if I am in a pinch I CASE myself to keep things moving. I made another card using a different background color.  The heart dies are MFT and the sentiment is Verve.

I hope you will come on over to STB and check out what the team and our brand new Surprise Party Guest did for this challenge.  I know you will know who she is …it’s the talented and oh so busy Angie Cimbalo.  See you at STB!  Nanc’

CAS @ The Paper Players

 

Hello,  I am joining in the celebration over at The Paper Players for their 500th challenge.  Congrats to the team for such a successful journey.  I look forward to your continued success and many more challenges to come.

I found an old background that I had made using the smooshing technique awhile ago in one of my drawers today and knew it would work out perfectly with this adorable tree die from MFT that I just received. I made another card with the leftover outer background. I couldn’t let it go to waste. CAS is a challenge for me but I like these cards.

I am going to link up the bottom card over at Darnell’s NBUS. 

The sentiments are from Papertrey Ink and I also added some clear Nuvo Drops.

I so appreciate you coming by, stay well. Nanc’

Love…You

Hello, I am here with two nearly identical Valentine cards for a couple of challenges. These cards are quick and simple and easy to mass-produce.  The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps, the heart flower die is also Simon Says and the You sentiment is from Verve. I am linking these cards up over at The Card Concept where my style is CLEAN and LAYERED and Casology where the word is Sweetheart.

Thanks for popping in! Nanc’

You are my Missing Piece

Hello,  Back again with another card today this one if for the Fusion Card Challenge where I opted on just the sketch this time.  This SU puzzle piece set is so much fun to use. I paired it with this beautiful paper from Bo Bunny.  Added some little hearts and rhinestones and I was done.

Hope you are having a creative day! Nanc’

You Touched My Heart

dsc_0072

screen-shot-2017-01-07-at-6-58-34-pmHello Friends,  Vicki is hosting over at Just Us Girls and she has a perfect Trend for us this week.  Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner it was perfect time to incorporate Hearts on our cards and or projects.  I just love the look of Inlay Die-cutting, so that is what I decided to do with this challenge. The paper is from SU, the Hearts are from MFT and the sentiment is from Verve. I think I will definitely be doing this again. It’s almost like I made my own cover plate.

Have a fabulous day and you MUST come by and see what the team and our Guest Michelle have done! Take care, Nanc’

MFT Sketch Challenge #316

dsc_0021

mft_wsc_316Hello Friends,  I am popping in with a quick post for the latest MFT Sketch Challenge.  I have been eyeing this sketch for about a week, and tonight after work I finally had a chance to put something together.  I literally am in love with my new Adorable Elephant stamps and matching dies from MFT along with my Stitched Hearts.  You are going to be seeing a lot of these so I will apologize in advance!  Infact, all the dies here are from MFT and the you sentiment is from Verve.

Thanks for checkin’ in on me and have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Clean and Simple @ STB

DSC_0480

STB ToppingsHello Friends, Hope you are having a good week so far.  It’s Thursday and it’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  This time around our topping is Clean and Simple, which is something I plan to tackle more of this year.  I want to take some of the pressure off myself and stop thinking each card has to be better then the one previously posted.  Please tell me you put those types of pressures on yourself too?  I sure hope someone out there does this and I am not alone on this crazy thought process.  Anyhooze…..Today’s card was inspired by this card I found over on Pinterest.  I have linked it up for you HERE! It was done by the talented Kristina Werner. Everything she does is like jaw dropping gorgeous.

DSC_0478My card has quite a few flaws but it sure was fun to do.  The hardest part was finding all the small stamps from various stamp sets.  Then when I went to get started, I knew I wanted to do a heart, but didn’t have any heart dies. ( I think that needs to be rectified pronto!)  So I turned on my cameo and made myself a heart negative mask, which was super quick and worked perfectly.  The sentiment and sequins are from Verve.

I sure hope if you are stamping sometime over the next few weeks you will consider making a CAS card and join us at STB!

Take care,  Nanc’

June Weddings

Unknown

Hello Friends,  The month of June is about to come to an end, but before it is done I do have a wedding card for you.  After all, June is known to be ” Wedding Month” now isn’t it.  My family and I are headed to Michigan in a couple of days to attend my niece’s wedding.  Not sure who is more excited…. my son, his first Vacation since he gradated from High-school.(No joke) Although, he did inform me yesterday that he will be working some while we are gone…that kid of mine never quits. Our brother in-law is excited too.  He informed us today that he has every single sporting equipment that you can think of laid out and ready to go.  The only thing I am a little concerned about is all the rain they have been having and the swimming pool is only 60 degrees. Brrrrr.  We are looking forward to having the family all together for sure!  Ty’s girlfriend is coming with us too, however she has been warned that the Leppek family is a little crazy. LOL  Should be good fun!  Sorry, my upcoming vacation is not what you came by to listen to now is it.  The photo of this card makes the card look as if the colors don’t match. However, you will have to trust me that the light brown is more of a tan and does contrast beautifully.  I have made a card similar to this one in the past and I just love the look of it with those cute hearts.  I don’t think you need much info on this card other then….the sentiment is from Stampin UP and the heart border is a punch from Martha Stewart.

I am also linking my card up to the following challenges;  Time Out Challenges where the challenge is inspired by these words…..Happy is the Bride that the Sun Shines on.  And over at Freshly Made they are asking for either a monochromatic theme and or a stencil theme.  I think it’s quite obvious I went with the monochromatic only.

Until next time…find sometime to be creative…it’s good for the soul.  Nanc’1

Another Flutter Card!

Hi Friends, I promise this will be the last card using my new  Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up from MFT! Well, at least for a little while…I do have an Anniversary on the Horizon….LOL.  I am entering this card in two challenges: The Verve’s Blog Inspiration Challenge and the Pink Elephant’s Be My Valentine challenge.  As soon as I saw the X’s and O’s on the Verve challenge photo I knew I wanted to incorporate my Verve Die Cut and coordinating Stamp Set called You and I along with my MFT Fluttering Hearts die.  It just so happens that my heart border punch die is Verve as well. My paper is from Stampin Up and Recollections.

Thanks for sticking with me through all these Valentine cards!  I promise that on Saturday I will have something so different and totally unrelated to Hearts! 🙂  Take care,  Nanc’
