The Laundry is….

Is this card and die set not the cutest thing ever? All courtesy of MFT of course. My DIL- Sandra asked me to make a card for her expecting sister using this set, and this is what I came up with. Of course, I snooped around Pinterest for some inspiration.  This is the card that inspired me.  I am pretty happy with the results and hopefully she will be too. The card all started with this Sketch I found over at Inspire. Create. Challenges.  I thought the sketch worked well with the poles of the clothesline. This card makes me dream of a GD of my own someday! Oh, what fun that would be. Of course, if they are still living in California, that wouldn’t be good at all! Hopefully, when the time comes they will live closer! Fingers tripled crossed!

Card Details: All dies are MFT, the sky background was blended with Oxide inks, some of the clothes have small punches for embellishments and or DP.

Hope you find some time to be creative today, Nanc

Miss You…

Hi, I hope you are having a great day! Over at Creative with Stamps, they have a new challenge starting and the word this month is Tree. Being a Florida girl I went with the obvious Palm Tree. This card was fun to throw together. I am also going to link it up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!! I have a few interesting card details below:

Card Details: Oxide Ink Background, used the MFT cloud die upside down for my “White-Capped Waves”, the sandhill is sponged and splatted and then cut with an edge-die from Papertrey Ink, Palm Trees and bare feet are Kitchen Sink Stamps, the Miss You is Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc’

Cover the Card

We have a fun and easy topping for you starting today at Seize the Birthday. My fellow DT member Ashwini wants us to Cover our Cards. Basically what that means is limited white space. The background stamp (Gerbera Daisy- from SSS) I used today is brand new to me and I couldn’t wait to use it.  One day soon I hope to color it too, but I chickened out for this post. LOL I decided to do some emboss resist with my Oxide Inks instead.  The sentiment is Verve and the flower and Smile die is MFT.  I raised the center of the card with some foam for added interest. The smile has a shiny sheen by using crystal effects.

Here is a picture of the panel before I mounted it. If you haven’t tried THESE makeup brushes I suggest you do.  My friend Barb suggested I get them and I am so glad I did!!  Thanks Barb!

Before I go I would like to take a moment to thank our Surprise Party Guest and my friend Linda for joining us these past two months.  It was an absolute pleasure having you Linda!  Please play along again with us when you have the time.  We love your work and you my friend. 

I am also going to link my card up over at The Flower Challenge where they want us to Focus on Background stamping. I am so glad I didn’t miss this challenge this month. 

Now head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out Linda’s and the amazing teammate’s cards!

Happy Crafting, Nanc’

Friend…

I have another card for you today that is for Time Out Challenges, it happens to be my second entry for this challenge. Once again, it goes along with the part of the phrase about friends.  As I was cleaning up my studio, I came across an envelope of die cuts that a good friend (Barb) punched out for me and it had this cute little bird die in it. So if you want to know whose die cut it is…I haven’t the foggiest. However, I can find out if need be. Anyhoo, I decided to make a blended panel with my Oxide Inks to showcase these cute little birds and just leave them white. The grass is a from MFT and the word friend…is from Pretty Pink Posh.  Topped it with a bow and I was done.

I hope you are enjoying your day.

It’s raining here and I am enjoying it immensely!

In fact, still in my PJ’s and on my umpteenth cup of coffee. 😉 Right now its Salted Caramel….yum yum!!  Nanc’

Water

DSC_0147

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day so far!  Life has hit a big bump at the moment and I am hanging on by a thread! My dad (88) fractured his pelvis and I am running on fumes.  So bare with me the next few weeks or months till things settle down. Today is the start of our next challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping we have for you today is Water.  Luckily for me this card has been done for quite sometime or I wouldn’t have had anything to share with you today!  I can’t even begin to tell you where this image is from…it’s a digital I printed about 5+ years ago. I used my colored pencils, some MFT and Lawn Fawn dies to complete my card. The sentiment is Verve of course!

I sure hope you will drop by over at Seize the Birthday and check out the DT and Surprise Party Guest’s work and join us! HUGS too! Nanc’

Monochrome at The Flower Challenge

Hello,  Hope your day is going well!  Today’s card all started with the negative piece of my very last card I posted.  I also wanted to join in this months The Flower Challenge where the theme is Monochrome.  It’s always fun and a bit challenging to me to make a card in basically all one color, but when it’s pink, it makes it all that much easier. LOL I found this glittery pink heart in a bit box on my desk and I knew it was going to be the perfect added touch.  I made the banner myself with a left over piece of scrap too. How many bit boxes do you have in your craft room? I have several, and vow to organize them by summers end…I can’t throw anything away.

A few card Details:  SU Paper that was colored with Oxide Inks, MFT Stitched Flowers, Verve sentiment and U die.

I hope you find sometime to get creative! Nanc’

You are Unforgettable…

I have another card today for the Daily Marker 30 day Challenge and for this great color combo over at the Color Throwdown.  I really enjoy playing with my Oxide Inks and today’s card is a mix of a little colored pencil with background blending. These MFT elephants just make me smile.  This is the first time I am happy with the results of adding the water droplets to my background. Usually they are so clumpy and look so forced.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! All my stamps and dies are from MFT.  Take care, Nanc’

screen-shot-2016-11-12-at-1-44-57-pmHello Friends,  It feels like forever since I last posted.  It’s only been a week, but what a week it was!  I can’t believe school isn’t out till the 22nd this year. Grrrrr. I pray that I can make it till then.  I am so not ready for Christmas, but are we ever really ready? What gets done gets done, thats my motto!  At least it makes me feel better… temporarily. LOL Okay, onto today’s card.  It’s Color Week over at Just Us Girls and I hope Lisa will forgive me as I didn’t quite follow the orchid color, but I am still in the same color family. I got some new MFT goodies in the mail this week ( Merry Christmas to me) and I was itching to open them up and have a go. However, the sentiment die is from Verve and the YOU is from SU.  The rest is MFT.  I added some sparkle to my flowers and they didn’t photograph well.  Sorry about that!

Hope to see you in the gallery at JUGS and Merry Christmas.  I hope to post before then….but you never know! Nanc’

Office Supply Challenge

Over at the Crafty Card Gallery this month we are incorporating an Office Supply item onto are project.

 This is what I came up with.

As I was searching my house for such items I came across a bag of rubber bands in various bright colors.

A Light bulb came on….and I decided that if I slice the rubberband in half I could make it look like ribbon.

Hope you have a great Monday and please pop on over to the Crafty Card Gallery and check out their 2nd issue of Creations.

It’s their Holiday Issue and you can either buy it in print form or order it Digitally!

The sentiment on my card is from Verve and the paper is a mix of SU, CM and Colorbok.

Have a great Monday friends,

3 Types of Thankful…

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO LOOK FOR 3 DIFFERENT CHALLENGES!

Happy Sunday Stampin Friends,  Today is a gorgeous day in Sunny Florida and as soon as I finish this post I am headed to the outdoors to soak up some Vitamin D.

Yesterday wasn’t as pretty, so I played in my studio for the afternoon and came up with these 3 cards that all were based on this new set of leaf stamps.

It’s made by Cloud Nine Design and has 11 wonderful stamps of all shapes and sizes!

 The first card is being entered in The Freshly Made Sketch Challenge.

The sentiment is from Verve!

The next card is for  The Friday Mashup

which asked us to incorporate leaves into a Thank You card.

The final card is my favorite of the day and I am going to enter this one in the JUGS  Color Challenge.

If you have any questions on today’s cards just let me know!

I am Thankful for so much this year and I hope you are too!

Have a Wonderful Day!
