Love you with…

Hello, I am back today with a card for the latest Tic Tac Toe board over at The Paper Players. I have chosen the center row of; die-cut, blue and patterned paper. This challenge was just what I needed to get inspired.

Card Details: DSP is from Stampin UP, the embossing folder is from Cuttlebug and it came with my machine and I don’t know the name of it, the love die and sentiment are from Gina K Designs-A Little Love Set, the flower and leaves are from Pink and Main. I used my old Fiskars cutter to make the double decorative victorian edge between my papers.

My photo isn’t great and this looks much better in person.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Take care, Nanc’

No Otter Like You

It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and Cecile is our hostess and she has chosen a fun color combo for us. I know you might be a bit tired of seeing these Otters, but I just adore their sweet faces and thought they might work well with this combo.

Card Details: MFT-Otterly Love You, Heart Stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps. The heart border at the bottom of the card is a Martha Stewart Punch. I used Copics for my medium and a little Prismas and Gold Nuvo drops to color in the heart. I have used dimensionals too.

I hope you will come over to Just Us Girls and see what the talented DT and Guest-Fran did with this color combo! Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Card Concept-Red, White, and Blue

I am back again today with another card using the MFT card kit and If you are tired of seeing these types of cards, I am truly sorry! Not sorry enough to stop, but still very, very sorry! LOL. As soon as I saw the challenge photo over at The Card Concept, I knew this set would work so perfectly. See, I was forced to use this set again! Isn’t that sentiment just fabulous?

As you can probably tell, I was inspired by the colors, the stars and stripes, and the cozy setting for a Clean and Layered Design.

Card Details: MFT Couch Kit, the brick wall was made using a SU embossing folder that I inked with brown ink. The brick background had been in my stash for quite some time and I am happy that I finally put it to use. I inked the sky of the window with Oxide Ink. The Picture window and drape die are an added accessory that doesn’t come in the kit. I am super glad I purchased it though.

I hope you enjoy your day and spend a bit of time doing something that brings you JOY!

Take care, Nanc’

Love You

Hello, I am back today and I am playing along with the TGIF challenge. What they want us to do is use a frame on our card. I have had this frame on my desk for a few weeks and it was leftover from this card I made HERE, and I just couldn’t part with it. Well, today I decided to put it to use. As you can see I decided to use my favorite set from Pink Fresh Studio- called Choose Hope.

Card Details: The outline frame was made with my Miss Ink Stamps Daisy stencil and Oxide Inks. The flower was stenciled with the PFS set called Choose Hope. I chose not to use the outline stamp and go for a soft look.

Hope you find some time today to do whatever brings you Joy! Nanc’

I Love You More Than My Plants

Hello, I am back today with a card for the latest sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches using the latest Card Kit from My Favorite Things. Let me just say, that it’s the first time that I can recall that moments after my package arrived that I went right to my studio to play. I just could not wait to open up this cute Kit! It is every bit as cute as I thought it was going to be. So take this as a warning, most likely you will be seeing lots of cards using these new products over the next month or so.

I have linked up one of the cards by MFT DT member- Tiffany of Ink Therapy Designs that inticed me to buy this set. She is super talented and sweet to boot!

I am going to link up with Darnell over at NBUS also.

Card Details: Nearly all supplies are from the MFT-Couch Card Kit except for the stitched edging and the Stitched Heart, although they are also made by MFT. The Dewdrops are from Honey Bee Stamps.

I hope however you are spending this long weekend, you are doing something that brings you JOY! Nanc’

I’d Be Otterly Lost…

Hello, I am back today with a couple of cards combining some backgrounds that you have seen me make in the past with some sweet little MFT Otters. I absolutely love making backgrounds and I think these came out great! I will say right away that I didn’t spend much time coloring these cuties so I am aware that they aren’t very good. With that being said, we don’t always have as much time as we like when we sit down to create, now do we?

I am playing along with the Addicted to Stamps and More Die-cuts and Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: MFT Otterly Love You set, fishes stamp is SU, Perfect Pool stencil-MFT and the Wave is from Mayco-called Groovy. I used Prisma colored pencils as my medium-poorly. The Heart was punched out of red sparkle paper.

I hope you have a nice weekend and have some time to sneak away and get inky and escape the sad world we live in, even if only for a little while! Nanc’

I Love you…

Hello, It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and Sue is our hostess. Sue has picked a perfect color trio that always results in great cards in my opinion. I liked it so much that I made two cards for this challenge.

Card Details: Card 1: The stamp is from Honey Bee Stamps.

Card 2: Choose Hope stencil and die set from Pink Fresh Studio. The cover-plate is from MFT.

Now head on over to Just Us Girls and get inspired by the talented team and guest-Mac and play along!

Take care, Nanc’

Bananas for you

Hello crafters, Today at The Paper Players we have a Clean and Simple challenge beginning and the fun theme that sweet Joanne has chosen is Fruits & Berries. I had to dig deep in my neglected stamps bin to find some fruit for this challenge. Luckily, I came across this stamp set with these cute bananas in it. Now, this stamp set is very poor quality as I probably picked it up at Michaels eons ago, so just ignore the jagged black lines on the edge of the bananas.

I am pairing this challenge with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge that is going on right now. I saw that they also had a choice of CAS so it was very easy to incorporate the center row of Any Color, Free, and CAS in my design.

Card details: I have no idea what company makes this stamp and or greeting. The scalloped edge die is from MFT. I used some Copics and Prismas for some really quick and haphazard coloring. CAS is hard for me so I decided some small paper punched dots might liven it up a bit.

My Love…

Hello, Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Sketch Week and Jaydee has got a great one for us. I started off with the basis of the layout of the sketch and my card kinda got away from me a bit and I thought the background needed something fun, and that is where the anchor came in. Hopefully the team will think it’s okay, as you can clearly still see the sketch in my design. I think they call those creative liberties in the crafting/art world. LOL

Card Details: I made the negative and positive anchor with my Silhouette Cameo. The stamps are from the SU set called Whale Done. I have no idea where I got the silver stars, but they are 3d…super fun!
