A Day to Celebrate

Hello, Second post for the day and one more card using Lemon Zest! 🙂

For the last few days, I have been thinking about the colors over at The Color Throwdown and knew I wanted to do something a bit outside the box. Then, when I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches an idea popped into my head. Who says when you are making a card you have to stay true to the colors of that object! I kinda like the way this card turned out and hope you do too!

Here is a close-up so you can see that I heat embossed the sentiment in gold.

Card Details: Spellbinders-Lemon Zest, Lattice cover die from Whimsy Stamps, the sentiment is heat embossed in gold and from SU. I used a very little bit of Antique Linen Oxide ink along with Vintage Photo to give my leaves and lemons so dimension. My card base and cover plate were done with Cream cardstock but I am not sure you can tell with the overcast day we are having.

I know I have been posting a ton lately and you are probably thinking, how on earth and or does she do anything else? Well, my secret is, that I have stopped wasting a couple of hours every morning sipping coffee and scrolling through my phone and or blogs. I give myself 20 minutes and then I start my day. It is working out so well and I definitely feel more productive! I also added some timely reminders on the IG App that have really helped me to put the phone down!

Do you have bits of your day that you waste that you could change? I challenge you to give it a try!

Take care, Nanc’

Birthday Wishes and Sweet Friend

Hello, I am back today with more lemons, but this time I am playing along over at CAS Colours and Sketches for their color challenge and over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge using the center row of Die-cut embellishment and bright colors. As you can see I enjoyed this color combo so much that I made a second card, plus I had leftover leaves after I cut the leaves portion of the die down to a smaller size. I think the smaller bunch is cuter!

Card Details: Spellbinders Lemon Zest, sentiments are Gina K and Papertrey Ink. I used some Oxide inks to give some color to my dies. The scalloped edge and rounded edge dies are from MFT. A few clear rhinestones for the blossoms. The dotted EF which is supposed to be snow but I like to use it on anything is from SU.

Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day and don’t forget to do at least one thing today that brings you JOY. 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’
