Polka Dots

Hello, Happy Sunday! Today over at The Paper Players, it’s CAS week and the theme is Polka Dots. The sweet Anne Marie is our hostess this week. This is my Second card this week using a fun background that I made a few weeks back that was just waiting to be used on a card. Not sure I like this one as much as I like the Lily card I made for STB, but it will have to do. If you didn’t see that post, just scroll a few posts back and you will find it.

I am also linking up with the gals over at Happy Little Stampers and their Anything Goes with Stencils challenge.

Card Details: Background shape was made with a stencil I made with a Spellbinders Die. Then I used Honey Bee Stamps heart stencil and Oxide Inks to make my background. The Butterfly die is from Saavy that I backed with Polka dotted paper. It was a very quick card to put together.

For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

Flip Flops

Hello, These cards will look familiar but I promise they are new, and I have not shared them before! This design is just one I have made before and just really enjoy. The stars above are a new idea.

A stamp friend of mine is hosting a Beach theme challenge over at Make the Cards Challenge and I wanted to support her and play along. Plus, I needed some more beachy cards for the stores, so it’s a win win. If you have not heard of this challenge, you should go check it out! There are tons of fabulous cards over there by Donna and the Design Team.

Here are two more!

Card Details: Stamps and Dies are all from Honey Bee Stamps, The backgrounds are done with Oxide Inks. The coloring is a bit of Prismas and Copics. I have put Crystal Effect on the straps of the flip flops to make them shine. I either used gems, dew drops, or sequins to finish them off. Oh, and lots of dimensionals too.

Thanks for popping in! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and or weekend, Nanc’

Happy Birthday, Beautiful

Hello, We have a fabulous Topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday. Colleen chose Bouquet, and I think everyone is really going to have fun with this one, I sure did.

I am also joining The Flower Challenge as they asked us to use our Favorite Flower. I have always loved lilies since I was a kid as my mom had them all over the yard. Now, I do too. I love that there are so many variations of colors. I just bought some new Night Lilies this year. They are a deep dark purple and white.

They are still celebrating their 2nd Birthday over at AAA Birthday, congrats to them! So I am linking once again with the fun over there.

Card Details: I had this background waiting on my desk for a few weeks now and wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it. It was made with Oxide inks, white pigment ink, and a Heart stencil from Honey Bee Stamps. I first made the outline stencil from a very old Spellbinders die. The beautiful lily die is from MFT and I just love how they look. The greeting is also MFT and comes from the Birthday Buddies Stamp Set.

Now, come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the rest of the DT’s lovely cards and join us!

Take care, Nanc’

Black and White

Hello, It is the middle of the month already, and time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Hannelie has chosen Black and White this time around. It is practically summer here already so I have broken out the flip-flops once again.

I decided to make two cards as I just loved the way the flip flops turned out with the polka dots and I found another piece of cardstock with stars on it. I can’t wear flip-flops as they bother my feet, but if I could I’d pick the stars for sure.

Card Details: Die cuts are Honey Bee Stamps and the greetings are too. The EF is an old one from SU.

Hope you will head on over to Color Hues and check out what the team and our guest did with this color combination, you are sure to be inspired. Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Flippin Fabulous Birthday

Hello, I hope you are enjoying your day! I actually am all caught up on my DT commitments and decided to make a birthday card as my stash is completely depleted. As soon as I saw the challenge over at AAA Birthday, I knew what I wanted to do. They asked us to use Patterned Paper on our card. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I CASED myself, only this time it’s a birthday card instead. This is such fun DSP that I got from my Local Scrapbooking store. I just love cutting out the bows on the flip-flops with the crabs perfectly in the middle. The dies and sentiments are from Honey Bee Stamps! A must-have set for this Florida girl.

Below is the card I cased of myself that I made last October.

Have a great rest of your week! I will be back on Thursday for more Birthday fun with STB! Take care, Nanc’
