Birthday by the Sea

Hello, It’s time for the next topping over at Seize the Birthday and this time I am your hostess. Before I get to my card I want to say a BIG Welcome to Jules Peddicord! She is joining us today as an official Design Team Member and we couldn’t be more excited! WooHoo! Jules has played along at Seize the Birthday for many, many years and we have long admired her work, so it was just decided it was about time to make her a Design Team Member. Welcome Jules!

Since we are in the middle of summer in my neck of the woods, I chose By the Sea as our topping at STB. I think this topping should really make for a wide variety of possibilities, and I can’t wait to see the gallery!

I needed some masculine cards so I thought this boat would be just perfect. I decided to try to be creative once again with my background and I kinda like the way it came out. Below I will show you the stencil that I used for my water.

Card Details: The stencil is from Taylored Expression and called Go With the Flow. The boat is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

Come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the amazing cards by our Design Team and new teammate! You are certainly going to be inspired! I sure was!

Take care, Nanc’

Happy Father’s Day

Hello, I thought I would sneak away this afternoon after my son and daughter in law left and do something to distract me and keep the sadness at bay. Yes, after all these years I am still a wimp when my son leaves as we always have the best time together! He has a way of making everything better. Anyways, I started off by searching for a challenge site to play along with. I decided on a card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, as the theme is masculine.

Card Details: I still had this SU fish set on my desk which helped the card come together rather quickly. Every bit of my card is from Stampin Up and some of the stamps are old and some are new. If you have any questions, please just let me know. This card is a case of my fellow DT member Ann’s card from the Paper Players and it was made back in 2013. I just feel in love with the colors she used!

I hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’

Dad you are Awesome

Hello, My Dad is Awesome! In fact, he is about to turn 90 at the end of this month.  I asked him if we could throw him a birthday party, and he unfortunately said no. I am going to have to do something special for the man that has done so much for me all these years.  Love him so!

Today’s card is for the masculine card challenge over at The Paper Players.  I have been CASEing myself lately when I need some help and HERE is the card I originally made.

Card details:  Sizzix-alphabet dies, SU-background paper, SU-anchor stamp, awesome die-cut-Verve, You are sentiment-SSS, wonky rectangle die-MFT

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a truly wonderful day! Nanc’

Thank you

Hello, I have a quick post for you today.  I needed a thank you card for a golf lover.  I have this new golf set from SU that I have been enjoying playing with. I took my inspiration from Pinterest to put this card together.  The sentiment and clouds are from MFT. I made my rolling hills with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hill dies. Still trying to work on using up some of the Designer Paper.

I am linking my card up over at Just Add Ink where they have a challenge for the Guys. Happy crafting, Nanc’

Dimension

Hello, I hope your day is off to a great start! Today it’s time for a new challenge over at Just Us Girls, and the Trend that we have for you is to add dimension to your card and or project.  The sand that I have surrounding the lighthouse has been raised with pop dots for the required dimension. This card was fun to put together. We also have two Guest Designers joining us this month, they are Hannelie and Mary.  Everyone did such a great job with this Trend, you must come by and check them out… and then consider joining us!

All products are Stampin Up.

Happy Stamping,  Nanc’

Congratulations… on your Retirement

Hello, as you can see I found another nautically inspired challenge site to play along with this week. This card is for Time Out Challenges. I found the perfect DP-by Kaiser Craft to use along with my SU-Nautical stamp set to complete it.  This was so quick, but I like the way it came together.  The card is going to a person that in fact sails, so hopefully he will love it and get a kick out of my sailor’s knot.

Thanks for your visits…they are so appreciated.

Happy 62nd Birthday!

Hello, Today’s card is for Color Week at Just Us Girls. It’s nothing special but it fits the challenge just the same.  I needed a specific masculine card for a friend and this is all I could come up with.  Masculine cards are so tough!  I have chosen grey as my 3rd color choice. I always enjoy these type of challenges where you can throw in your own color.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see what my team and our talented Guest Hannelie chose for their 3rd color!

Take care, Nanc’

Travel

DSC_0224

Screen Shot 2016-08-07 at 11.06.09 AMHello from soggy Florida!  We have endured Hurricane Hermine and the 12 inches of rain very well and have spent the past couple of days tinkering inside the house and catching up on some of our Amazon Prime and Netflix series.  As I am writing this post we still are having some wind gusts of about 4o mph. It keeps you on your toes for sure. We didn’t have school on Thursday or Friday due to so much flooding, and also have Monday off for Labor Day. I guess I could complain, but I can’t figure out why. LOL  I guess I will just have to endure! (insert snarky face) Okay, onto today’s card!  It’s Word Week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has chosen the word Travel.   I started this card quite awhile ago at a girls’s stamping get together, and when I came across Ina’s challenge I was thrilled that I had something started.  Here is a link to the old Jalopy car by Sizzix and the embossing folders are from Cuttlebug. I do not personally own either of these, as they belong to my good friend Janet. Isn’t that car the coolest?  On the inside the card reads, “You’re not old you’re Vintage.” LOL  I decided the card needed a little something on the front so I added the 3 pieces of sentiment. I also love taking a sanding block to an embossing folder and letting some of the white underlay peer through. I think it works exceptionally well on masculine cards, don’t you?

DSC_0226Before I go I would like to welcome our new Guest Designer for the month…. Kathy Schweinfurth, Stamps At Play.  Welcome Kathy!  The girls and I are thrilled you are with us!  Speaking of the girls!  You have to go look at the entire team’s cards, they are terrific this week!  I hope you decide to join us too!   Have a great weekend, and with any luck we will dry out and the sun will peer his face today!  HUGS!

Hello Friends!

Today over at Just Us Girls Maria has chosen a great Color Combo!

I needed a masculine card for a co-worker and knew I wanted to

incorporate basketballs in my design, and a few weeks ago when I saw Maria’s color

choices I thought why not!  

The card is going to be filled with student signatures so I made it pretty large.

 I was a little worried about the

yellow at first, but it worked out pretty well!  My neutrals obviously are

white and black…hope it’s okay that I used both!

The card came together rather quickly…not sure it needs any explaining!

I hadn’t used some of those letter stamp sets in sooooo long…

it was nice to get them inky again!

Now, Please head on over to Just Us Girls and see what the team did 

with this color combo…I promise you won’t be disappointed!

While your at it PLEASE JOIN us!

If your chosen as Chic of the Week it puts you in the running at

a chance to be a Guest Designer with JUGS!

Hope to see you there!
