Hello

Hi, I hope you are having a good week so far. Today’s card has been waiting in the wings as I wanted to wait till the die set got re-released over at Spellbinders. Initially, it was the August Small Die of the Month Club but now it’s back for purchase for all. It is called Outlined Sentiments but also has darling florals and leaves in the set as well. This set was not gifted to me, I purchased it. I have it pictured below along with affiliate links.

Outlined Sentiments

Classic Scalloped Circles

Spellbinders 6

Card Details: I used strips of paper for my background and built my card from there. I thought if I outlined the flowers and leaves just a little with a gold pen, it would tie in with the sentiment and floral centers perfectly. I used vellum as my shadow on the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and you get to get a little crafty, Nanc’

Hello

Hi, Hope you are doing well! I am back showcasing Spellbinder’s newest dies once again called Enchanted Garden in the Winter Tales Collection. I paired it with other Spellbinder products to make a Hello card. The Embossing folder is brand new to me and called Loops. The Hello die is from August’s small die of the month club and is such a great set, that I have been really enjoying. It will be released once again very soon.

A few more card details: The polka dot stripe is Washi tape. The red strip was made with my victorian edge die Fisker’s trimmer that is as old as the hills. The silver dots are made from the Spellbinders Holly die in the Noel set.

If you want to see the entire collection plus the items I used to make this card, I have affiliate links below.

Hello

Hello, When I got back from vacation I had the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month called Outlined Sentiments waiting for me. So on Wednesday, I decided it was time to get back in the studio and get creative again. I don’t know about you, but after a vacation, it always takes me a week or so to get back in the groove. I was under the weather at the end of my vacation (it started on my birthday-bummer) so that didn’t help. I thought for sure it was Covid but I tested negative a few times, so that was good. I feel much better now. In addition, I am always a bit sad about leaving my son and daughter-in-law after we’ve had so much fun together. My son wants us to move to California. I wish that was possible, but highly unlikely unless I win or even start playing the lottery. LOL Although, I guess never say never!

For my CAS card, I am playing along with two of my favorite challenges; Freshly Made and The Paper Players.

Card details: Spellbinders small die of the month-Outlined Sentiments. I also used a small piece from a cover plate called Lattice from Whimsy Stamps to make my square center to go with the sketch.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have or have had a wonderful day, Nanc’

Hello-Spellbinders

Hi, I am back today as promised, with another card using that same color palette from yesterday. This time I am using this fabulous new Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders, called Day at the Beach. I am sure you are not surprised that this Florida girl had to add this to her collection! It is as cute as it can be and fun to put together.

I did have to trim the card down a half inch as I messed up the sides of the water while stenciling.

Here is a close-up.

Supplies Used: Some with Affiliate Links

Small Die of the Month

Platinum 6

MFT- Make Waves Stencil

Miss Ink Stamps-Perfect Plaid

Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers

A Few Card Details: In order to make my background I used a straight edge of acetate and some masking to blend the sky. In order to make the rippled edge of the sand, I used a piece of ripped paper. The waves were added last with a stencil. I used a stencil from Miss Ink Stamps to make my bathing suit pattern. I inked the flip-flops, and I have dimensionals for height and a few decorative rhinestones.

I am linking up with Darnel over at NBUS. and Simon Says Stamps, make your own background.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and or week ahead! Nanc’

CAS-Hello

I have a very quick card for you today that is for the CAS One Layer Challenge going on over at The Paper Players. One-layer cards aren’t easy for me as I always feel like they are missing something. You all know that I love my Oxide Inks but sometimes the black ink doesn’t get as crisp as I would like it to. I should have restamped this, but ended up taking it off my Misti too soon.

Card Details: Made myself a stencil for my sunset and used Oxide Inks for blending. The palm tree stamp is from Impression Obsession and the Hello is from Verve.

I hope whatever you do today you have a chance to get inky! Nanc’

Hello

Hello, I am happy to report that I have a NEW die set that I am crushing on at the moment and it’s this one from Spellbinders. It is called Lemon Zest and it is super fun to piece together, I am certain you have seen it used a bunch recently either on blogs or IG. I am linking this card up over at The Paper Players where the theme that Anne Marie chose is Food and or Beverage. I have made four more cards using this set that you will see at a later date. The reason I used navy as my background is because of this gorgeous card by Yana Smakula. It is stunning and I have it linked up for you! She is truly an inspiration to me and others, as she is in Ukraine and dealing with the war and uncertainty yet still creating.

Card Details: Spellbinders-Lemon Zest, the hello die is from Crafter’s Workshop. I used a bit of oxide inks in both yellow and green to give the die some life. The background die is one of my favs called Frilly Frames from Sunny Studio. I used a few clear rhinestones on the centers of the blossoms.

I hope that you are doing well and that you have done something today that brought you JOY! Nanc’

Pink Fresh Studio Challenge

Hello, A few weeks ago when it was World Card Making Day, Pink Fresh Studio started a challenge in honor of the special occasion and it was Anything Goes as long as PFS products are your main focus. So, I have had this note on my calendar since then and finally had a chance to put a card together. I spent a great deal of time thinking about the colors for this card and am very happy with my dark peach, grey, and green combination. I trimmed some of the stencil flowers down to make my layout work.

Here is a close up.

Photographing slimline cards can be a bit tricky, especially when you use a bit of mirrored paper.

I am going to link this card up over at Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge too!

Card Details: For my card I did an inlay on three of the five letters. Each letter is backed with the same mirrored paper that I made the decorative strips with. Those were made with my old Fiskars cutter and Victorian Blade. I used some Nuvo drops and glitter for the center of my flowers. I have clear sequins for a bit of bling and lots of dimensionals.

Products: Pink Fresh Studio Products; Slim Braided Circles, Kelly Alpha Letters, and Daisy Wreath Stencils. Oxide Inks

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time today to do something that’s creative! Nanc’

Hello Friend

Hi, I am back today with two fall cards that I really enjoyed creating. If you have not discovered the joy of taking your die-cuts and making your own stencils, you should certainly give it a try. I shot a very amateur video showing what I did, but sadly my blog doesn’t support videos unless I upgrade. What I love best about the leaf stamp and die-cut stencil is that the stencil is bigger than the stamp and I really like the look of it. What do you think?

Here is a close up! And you can also see my inlay die-cut too.

The above card is for the Double D Challenge where the word is Leaves plus they have a mood board to inspire us.

The card below is the first card I made with this technique and it’s for the Addicted to CAS-Leaf challenge.

Card Details: Stamp and leaf die is from Stampin Up and since retired. The hello is from The Crafters Workshop. The Friend and I am so Thankful for…are from SU as well. I used oxide inks as my medium. I just love my new Postal Dies from Hero Arts! I did have to make a half mask of my leaf for the CAS card.

Now I am looking at all my dies in a brand new light! I am off to see what else I can make with a die-cut stencil! Have a very creative day! Nanc’

Hello Sweet Friend

Hello, I am back again today with a quick card. I saw that the Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating their 500th Challenge this week, and I wanted to make sure I joined in their fun and achievement. They have been doing such an incredible job inspiring all of us for the past decade! That is some accomplishment! Congrats to them and all their current and past designers! Did I mention there are many prizes up for grabs too? I have linked it up for you, so go check it out!

My card was made with many things left over from my bits and boxes. I love putting them to good use.

I really appreciate you dropping by! Let me know if you have any questions!

Take care and stay well, Nanc’
