Rawr…It’s the middle of the month and time for our next Hues of Colors at Color Hues. I am a bit jet lagged as I just returned from a ten-day trip in California and Hawaii, so I am going to get right to it!
Julie B is our wonderful hostess and I absolutely enjoyed working with her color combo. Thanks, Julie! I decided it had been a while since I made a scene with my MFT dies, so that is what I did. When I first started putting this card together, I had no intention of my house being occupied by a cute little monster, but I love how it turned out.
Card Details: MFT- 4 sets; Picture Window, Fundamental Furnishings, Take a Seat, and Potted Plants. The monster is from Your Next Stamp and so is the sentiment. I used a bit of Copics and Prismas to color the monster and made a soft cloud sky behind my window using MFT’s cloud stencil.
Now, I certainly hope you will head on over toColor Hues and check out what my fabulous teammates and guest Joanne James have done with these hues of colors, and then play along. I was certainly inspired by all of their creations.
Hello, I hope you are having a good day! It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and I am the hostess. The colors I have selected are Pink and Yellow. I love this color combo and hope you do too. This card was fun to color up and put together. I don’t color enough and I do really enjoy it.
Card Details: The background stencils are from Honey Bee Stamps, the chick/greeting are from MFT. I used Copics and a bit of Prismas. The greeting is heat embossed.
Now before I go I want to also take a moment and welcome our next guest over at JUGS, we have the talented Claire Apostoloffjoining us this month! Welcome, Claire…I am so glad you are with us.
Please, won’t you pop on over to Just Us Girls and join us? We would love to have you!
Hello, I hope your week is treating you well. It’s the middle of the month so it’s time for our next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Marcia is our wonderful hostess and she has chosen Blue and Turquoise for us today. I have been itching to get out some of my favorite MFT sets and I was in the need of a House warming card, so that is what I have for you today. My Brother and Sister in Law bought a home here in Florida and are officially going to be snowbirds, and this card is for them.
Card Details: MFT-Beach Bungalow, MFT-Shady Palm, MFT-Life’s a Beach Sentiment. Oxide inks for my scene and a bit of Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils. I used a bit of white paint splatter as well.
Now, I certainly hope you will head on over to Color Hues and check out the cards by our fabulous team and join us. Don’t get hung up on finding the perfect Turquoise, as it’s pretty subjective-just do the best you can.
Speaking of Color Hues-DT…This past Tuesday my friend Carol and I got to meet up with CH-DT Member Karen Walker as she was vacationing in my neck of the woods. I love meeting up with teammates it’s one of the many things about this hobby that I love so much! We had a wonderful lunch and great conversation! So happy you escaped the cold and came to Florida, Karen!
Take care and make sure you find time to be creative as it’s good for the soul, Nanc’
Hello, and I hope you are having a good day. Today I am playing along with my friends over at The Paper Players. You know I love Color Challenges and LeAnne had a combo that certainly spoke to me. I did alter one of the colors to suit my design a bit. Instead of green apple, I used more of a seafoam green and I hope it’s okay. The green was just too bold with the rest of the tones I was using.
Card Details: I have been wanting to get out this adorable older set from MFT and make some baby cards and today I finally had the chance. The sweet sentiment is an oldie from Verve.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance this week to be creative. Nanc’
Hello, I am back today with one more card. How do you feel about pastels this time of year, and more particularly white pumpkins? Well, it seems that there are no rules these days when it comes to Fall and I love that! Have you seen all the pastel Fall cards around the globe lately? So much inspiration out there that I just had to give it a try.
Card Details: The background Lattice die is from Whimsy Stamps and it was cut down. All the garden pieces along with the bench are from MFT- Spring Garden. The pumpkin die is from Spellbinders in the Truckin Through the Season set. The greeting is from Gina K. The grass is an older die from MFT.
Hello, I hope your weekend is going well. Today I needed to make a Thank You card for a generous friend so I went searching for a color palette to spark my creativity. I came across the Sunday Stamps challenge and I thought it was so pretty. The rule for their color challenge is you have to choose at least 3 colors, which just so happens to be the way I like to create. I find that if I try to throw too many colors together (besides neutrals) it turns into a hot mess. So I chose the two shades of green and orange for my design. I also have some brown thrown in there too, but mine is much lighter than the graphic.
Here is a closeup so you can see the cute cream pots. The paper is speckled so I thought it was a nice touch. I used some SU DSP for my flowers.
I am also playing along with Darnell over at NBUS as I just received this Spring Garden set a few days ago from a sweet friend. Lucky me!
Card Details: Spring Garden from MFT, the sentiment is from Verve. To make my victorian edge at the top of the card, I used my Fiskers cutter.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, Nanc’
Hello, I am back today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Carol is our wonderful hostess and she has us making Rocker Cards today. I totally enjoyed this challenge as it’s good for me to break out of my comfort zone! Thanks for pushing us/me, Carol.
A Few Card Details: I saw this cute little Ellen Hutson bear on Pinterest with a fun swimsuit on and I totally wanted to try it too. I have it linked up for you HERE! I used a mix of old and new products on this card. The tree is from MFT, the camera, floral, life preserver, and sign are new and from Sizzix and called Beach Day Dies. The scalloped hills are Lawn Fawn. I used some Copics and colored pencils for my coloring. The little fish on his beach trunks are from MFT.
I am linking up once again with the ladies over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge and this time my card goes with the column of; Outdoors, Blue, Water.
I so appreciate you stopping by! I hope you will come over to Just Us Girls and check out my fabulous team’s rocker cards along with our guest Fran! They all did an amazing job!
Here is another card I made that is just a tiny bit different. I am loving the way the backgrounds turned out and they were so quick to do!
Card Details: Shady Palm dies-MFT, Postage die-Hero Arts, the sentiments are both from MFT-Life’s a Beach and Itty Bitty Summer, I made the scene using some straight edge acetate, torn paper, and some Oxide inks. I splattered the palm leaves with white paint and green ink. The tiny sun on the first card is so old but it’s actually from MFT as well.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Take care, Nanc’
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?
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’
Hello, It’s time for Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and Elizabeth is our fabulous hostess and she has the perfect word for March. The word is Lucky! I was looking through my stamps and sentiments searching for something that would work for this challenge and I came across this old Verve set with the word Lucky in it and it certainly saved me. The team did a fabulous job with this challenge. Such a great variety of cards that you should check out.
We have a new Guest Designer joining us this month at JUGS. My buddy JoAnn from my Seize the Birthday Team is tagging along with us! Welcome, JoAnn! So happy to have you!
