Just For You

I needed a quick card for a dear friend that is going through a rough time and decided to remake a card I made earlier this year. This card is a one-layer card and is a design and stamp set that is my go-to design that always ends in beautiful results. In order to make a one-layer card, I stenciled the flower and stamped the outline first, and then masked it off to do the heart background.

I am playing along with The Cupcake Inspirations as their beautiful photo totally inspired me to pick my color palette for my design.

Card Details: The heart stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps. The Choose Hope stamp and stencil set is from Pink Fresh Studio. The sentiment is from Altenew-Fancy Greetings.

I certainly hope you had or are having a wonderful day, Nanc’

Use a Stencil at STB

Hello, I am back today with the next topping at Seize the Birthday and Vicki our host has chosen one that I know is going to be a big hit. It is certainly one I loved right away! You may have noticed that I rarely make a card now without breaking out a stencil or two. LOL

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps, the leaf stencil background is from Miss Ink Stamps, the greeting is from SU- I do believe. The clear dewdrops are from Honey bee Stamps.

I hope you will break out those stencils, that I know you have, and join us at Seize the Birthday sometime over the next two weeks! The Design Team and our guest, Lorraine did an amazing job!

Take care and I hope you do something today that brings you JOY! Nanc’

Friend-Happy Birthday

Hello, It’s the middle of the month and time for our next color combo over at Color Hues. Cindy is our fabulous hostess and she chose two colors that I really enjoyed. I am definitely going to remember this combination in the future. Thanks, Cindy!

Card Details: After I stamped my Pink Fresh Studio-Layered Bouquet, I decided that they looked a bit lost on the all-white background and that is when I decided to make it striped using the same color of ink and an old SU stencil. The Happy Birthday is from Scrapbook.com and the friend die is from Honey Bee Stamps.

Before I close, I need to welcome two guest designers over at Color Hues joining us today, we have Kim Miller and Marcia Hill. You really must come and check out their amazing cards, along with my fabulous teammates. There is so much inspiration over there!

I am also linking up over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Any Occasion

I hope you do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Happy Birthday-Coneflower

Hello all! Second post today! If you are looking for Just Us Girls please scroll down!

I hope you are doing well! It’s the middle of the month already and time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Sweet Tracey is our hostess this time around and she has picked a wonderful color combo for us. I realized as I was typing this post, that I used the coneflower set from Honey Bee Stamps for my very last card for Color Hues also. Well, there is no denying how much I love that die, now is there?

*Since I first wrote this post I had some time to make another card using this color combination and with something other than the coneflower…LOL.

The DSP did all the work for me and some MFT dies and stamps.

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps, The happy die is MFT the Birthday is from SU. The lattice-die background is from Whimsy Stamps. I used some Oxide Inks to give my flower some added color-depth. I also used gold Nuvo drops for the center of the flower.

Now, If you need some inspiration you must head on over to Color Hues and check out the team’s cards, as they will certainly inspire you!

I hope you find something to do today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Life is Better…

Hello, Today I have a quick and simple card that was inspired by the challenge over at Time Out. The Phrase they have for us that we can interpret any way we want is…Happiness is a Warm Puppy. I decided that one of the places that makes me happy is the beach. I get a little bored laying in the sun but it is my favorite place to take a walk, especially at sunset. It certainly is a good way to de-stress.

In fact here is a pic I took not too long ago.

I do live in paradise!

Card Details: Honey Bee Stamps-die and stamp set. That fun DSP I picked up at my local stamp store. The tiny stars were made with a punch.

I hope you do something today that makes you happy. Take care, NANC’

Just for you Friend

Hello, It is April 1st already, No Fooling! And we all know that on the first of the month it’s time for the Next Hues of Colors @ Color Hues! Sheri has picked a color combo that most of the card makers in blog land are certainly going to just love, I know I do. I know there are some non-pink people out there, for some odd reason. However, for this challenge, you should just embrace it and live a little. LOL

I do love the way my card turned out if I was to be brutally honest! You just can’t go wrong with that Honey Bee Cone Flower.

I am also joining in the fun over at Just Add Ink where the challenge is Choose Two-Flower and Patterned Paper.

Card Details: Cone Flower-Honey Bee Stamps, circle dies are from SY, the Just for you…I am uncertain and the friend is also Honey Bee Stamps. Love this DSP that I found in my stash and didn’t know I had. I also used Oxide Inks to color the flower. Clear Dewdrops are from Honey Bee Stamps, and I only use them on special cards.

Now run on over to Color Hues and check out the work from my wonderful Design Team and our two guests- Carol and Trina, cause all their work is amazing.

Take care and do something today that brings you JOY and I am not fooling, Nanc’

With Sympathy

Hello, It is Saturday and time for the next fun challenge at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has chosen a great trio of colors. One of the colors is teal and it’s always one of those shades that can vary in tone. In my photo, it looks a bit too light and I decided with Ina’s approval that I would go with it. So what I am basically saying is as long as your colors are close to the ones we have on the graphic… “Now, Don’t You Fret, Boba Fett!” Any Ted Lasso fans out there? We have watched both seasons 4 times and laugh just as hard with every episode. Love that show!

I am also playing along with the ladies over at The Flower Challenge where the challenge is Occasions.

Card Details: Cone Flower-Honey Bee Stamps, DSP-Pink and Main, White Stems-SU, Scalloped Rectangle-MFT, Greeting-SU, Oxide inks to color my flower.

Come on over to Just Us Girls and join us, who knows, you may become our next Chic of the Week!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Crazy About You!

Hello, It is another dreary day here in the sunshine state and I decided in between some chores and a grueling headache I would try to make a Valentine card or two. I have been missing out on joining along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge the last month or so and as soon as I saw that LeAnne had some Valentine-type squares on her board this week, I knew I wanted to play along. I chose the last row; Any Shape Die Cut, Love Sentiment, and Glitz or Glitter. If you can’t tell the heart is die-cut out of glimmer paper.

Here is card number 2!

Card Details: I finally got my hands on my favorite bear from Ellen Hutson and won’t have to borrow him anymore from my stamping friend. The stencils are from Honey Bee Stamps, the speech bubble is SU, Love die is Gina K. ,the greetings are a mix of Verve and SU. The heart was cut out of sparkly SU paper. The postage die is Hero Arts. Mr. Bear is colored quickly and terribly with Copics that are unfortunately running dry!

Thanks for coming by and please take care, Nanc’

Sending Lots of Hugs

Hello, I am back again today with another Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower card. I am still working on perfecting the shades of color on the flower by inking up either white or colored cardstock. I have another card where I am very happy with the way the flower turned out, but this one isn’t so bad. I hope to put that flower on a card very soon. Kinda wish I hadn’t put on the white dots in the center of the flower, oh well!

My card was inspired by the great color challenge going on over at The Color Throwdown. DT member Susie picked a great one that caught my attention right away. Check it out below. A lot of the supplies for this card were leftovers in my bits and boxes that I am determined to use up or organize this week. Do you have any organizational plans in the New Year when it comes to crafting? I just got finished labeling the stencils that I have in a 3 ringed binder. I am really happy about that! No more having to jog my memory on whose it is or what it’s called, it also makes putting them back easier. The binder is quite full and it appears I have an addiction to stenciling. LOL

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps inked on light yellow cardstock, Hugs die -MFT, Sending lots of-Gina K., Scalloped Rectangles-MFT, Border Punch is from Martha Stewart, Leaves are from Sizzix and embossed with a dotted EF, Nuvo drops, Inked up the flower with some Oxide Inks and a bit of Copics, White Gel Pen. DSP is a great pack from Pink and Main.

Thanks for coming by as I appreciate your visits! Take care, Nanc’
