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’

Color Hues and #cardsforukraine

Hello, I have a lot to get to today so I am just going to jump right in.

I was over on the Share Handmade Kindness FB group on Saturday and saw an idea by cardmaker Linda Eterno.  She suggested that the cardmaking community fill the internet with Blue and Yellow cards to show our support for Ukraine. I thought it was such a terrific idea. After I saw that post, I immediately contacted my Color Hues team along with my Seize the Birthday team to see if we could do our part for this great cause.

I sit here in disbelief with all this world has endured the past two years with a Global Pandemic and now we are witnessing a war! I can’t even believe that this is the World I am living in, and like most of you, I watch the news and just cry and feel helpless! I think making a card is the least that I can do. After all, we cardmakers stick together and we know how to light up the world, one card at a time.

So today I have two cards for you! The first one is for #cardsforukraine.

The second see of cards are for our already scheduled challenge where Lindsey is our hostess and these are the Hues of Colors she has chosen.

Here is another card I made but I screwed up and overheated the heat embossing.

I also want to take a moment to welcome my buddy Jules to Color Hues today, she was our winner for one of our last challenges and she is tagging along with us as our guest! Welcome, Jules! We are happy you are here!

Now, I hope if you are still with me after this long post you will consider joining us over at Color Hues. And, after you make your card, share it on the internet and or… over at the Share Handmade Kindness FB group, or the very least, on your blog or Instagram account. The more love the better!

Card Details #1-I used watercolored paper and did the smooching technique to make my blue and yellow papers. The leave stenciled background is from Miss Ink Stamps. The sunflowers and leaves are retired SU. The sentiment is from Pink Fresh Studio. The stitched hearts are MFT.

Card Details #2 Heart and rectangle dies are MFT, the congrats is from Impression Obsession, and the wedding rings are SSS.

Card Details #3 Same as #2- But the sentiment is from Stampin UP.

Please take care and help me spread love not hate, Nanc’

Love-Valentine

Hello, Over at the Global Design Project they have a Valentine theme challenge going on. As soon as I saw the graphic with the little envelope, I remembered I had a SSS envelope die I had yet to use and it even comes with a small card die too. The envelope is really cute as the front of it has a heart window in it. That is where I got my little hearts from to splatter around the card. The tiny black ones are a stamp. The sentiments were masked off to fit and are from SU and Verve. A cute and easy card to throw together on this dreary cold Wednesday!

Since the envelope die-cut was NEW and used for the first time I am also linking up with sweet Darnell over at NBUS!

Card Details are above!

I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’

In Love

Hello, Today I am playing along with the challenge over at Time Out where the theme is In Love, which is perfect for this time of year. I was in the need of some wedding cards so that is what I have for you today. I don’t often make wedding cards in red and black but thought why not, and I like the way they turned out. The Love Die from Gina K. Designs is fabulous and does all the work for you. So happy with that gift that was under the tree!

Here they are individually.

Card Details: Gina K-Love die, Wedding Rings, and Heart of Flowers are both from SSS. The small hearts are from a punch. I have used a mix of mirrored and silver, and black glitter paper. The diamond was popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by and please take care, Nanc’

LOVE

Hello, Hope your week is starting well. The card I have for you today was inspired by the first challenge of 2022 over at The Paper Players. The theme that Ann selected is to add sparkle. I found this pretty pink shimmery cardstock, that I nearly forgot I had, and thought it would be perfect for this challenge and to start on some love themed cards too. I thought my Christmas cactus made a nice backdrop. They are so pretty and I wish they bloomed more than once a year, but then I guess they would have to be renamed to something else. LOL

Card Details: The heart die and Love dies are from Simons Says Stamps. The U die is from Verve.

We are having car problems and are a single car family so looks like I will be stuck home for a few days. Oh, darn! More time to craft! Although, I should take the Christmas tree down instead….NAH!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

My Love for You…

Hello, Hope you are doing well today! I am back with a quick CAS card using what is definitely becoming my signature style…another heart background! I just love how quick and easy they are with great results. Over at the Global Design Project it is time for their color challenge, and if you know me you know they are my favorite! What I loved about this particular one is you get to pick the third color yourself! I chose Blue…obviously!

I am also joining in with the fun over at Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: The stamps are from the Stampin Up set -Whale Down and the stencil is from Whimsy Stamps-Swish. That sweet little whale is popped up with dimensionals.

I hope you have a wonderful creative day! Nanc’

HAPPY birthday

Hello, I am back today with a very quick card for The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge where sweet Jaydee is our hostess. I chose the row going down of- feminine, birthday and floral.

Card Details: The DSP is that older special paper from SU that I talk about often and just adore. I certainly wish they carried it full time. It comes in all different patterns and all you have to do is put ink on it for an emboss resist. I LOVE IT! Really makes for a quick card when you are in a time crunch. I use if very sparingly and keep every scrap. The sunflower and leaves are also from Stampin Up. I added a few gems and a greeting and I was done.

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

Celebrate the Best Day Ever

Hi, My card for the latest Sketch Challenge at The Paper Players, hosted by the lovely Anne Marie, is a very quick one where the DSP does all the work! I was still in a bit of a time crunch this week so I unfortunately didn’t have much time to be overly creative. We all have weeks like that, and I think it’s called LIFE.

I also just noticed that my panels are centered and they shouldn’t be! UGH!

Card Details: The Greeting and rectangle die are from SU, the embossed love heart that embosses the word while cutting out the heart is a Recollections die that I have had for eons and never used. The stitched heart is from MFT. The DSP is from Hobby Lobby or Michaels.
