Hello…just a little something

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Sketch Week. I love sketches…do you? I feel they make the design come together so much faster as the template is made for you. Joanne has a fun one for us today! Please don’t look too closely at my card as I did a terrible job inking the sky and grass. I didn’t have the stamp set to make a mask with, so I was inking around the image as carefully as I could. I had borrowed this stamp from a friend and only stamped a few, and I didn’t want to waste one of these cute little bears on a mask that was going to get all inky.

Card Details: Bear is from Ellen Hutson, Flowers- Colossal Con-flowers in the background are from Gina K. (also given to me from a friend). The greeting is a mix of Gina K. (a little something) and (Hello) is Papertrey Ink. The sky -MFT stencil, the grass is also an old MFT die that I used to make a stencil. The tag, flowers, and rectangle dies are all MFT. The butterfly is a MS punch.

Come see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team did with this challenge, you truly will be inspired!

CAS Snow

Hello, I hope you are doing well! It’s time for our CAS challenge over at The Paper Players and the theme is Snow. I so enjoyed this challenge being a Florida girl and all. Plus it gives me a jumps start on Christmas cards.

Card Details: I made my snowbanks with Oxide Inks and a template made from a Lawn Fawn- hills die. I use acetate so I can reuse them again. The cute little Ele is from MFT, the snowflakes are from Gina K Designs, the sentiment is Gina K too. The Santa hat die is from Lawn Fawn. I used a mix of three colors to achieve the color I was looking for. Broken China, Iced spruce, and Tumbled Glass.

I am also going to link my card up over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Snow!

Wedding Wishes

Hello, It is the middle of the month already, and time for our next choice of colors at Color Hues. The colors I have chosen for us our Navy and Cream. As soon as I picked my colors I knew I was going to make a wedding card. When I think of cream I always think wedding. It’s such an elegant color don’t you think?

Here are a few card details: The fun heart die background is from MFT. The designer paper, the heart stamp, the circle die, and the greeting are from Stampin Up. The scalloped die is from Spellbinders.

You need to run on over to Color Hues and check out what the incredible design team did with the colors. We also have the fabulous Julie Peddicord joining us this time as our guest. Welcome, Julie!

Try to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

3 Shades of Blue

Hello, Here we are back to Saturday again, and time for another challenge at Just Us Girls. When I saw these colors my mind went straight to a baby card. I also had the MFT hearts die still on my desk for a card I will post later today and thought it would make a perfect background.

Card Details: The greeting, the little Elephant, and Balloons, heart die background, are all from MFT. I used some Copics and colored pencils for my medium. The white circle has been embossed with a hearts EF from SU but it’s hard to see in the pic. I just love how the felt balloons turned out. The background is designer paper.

We hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and I for color week.

Take and try to find some joy in your day, Nanc’

I’m So Glad…

Hello Again, I am back today with the latest challenge from The Paper Players. It just happens to be time for our Color Challenge. If you know me, you know I love Color Challenges. Ann has selected the trio of colors below and of course one neutral.

Here are a few details: I just adore the seagull set from MFT. I used some yellow SU DP and a sun stencil for my background. The waves were first blended with Oxide Ink-on paper that was very close to the color Misty Moonlight. Then I took white paint and painted the swells to give them some white caps. The shell dies are from Impression Obsession. The little sunglasses are also from MFT. I used Oxide ink, and an old Stampin up stamp, and an MFT die for my sand. My coloring skills need a little work…I am certainly out of practice. I think my birds look a little dirty. LOL

Snowy Background

Hello, We have our first challenge of the New Year starting today at Seize the Birthday! Barbara has selected the topping of a snowy background. I love this topping because it isn’t something I do a lot of and I enjoyed the challenge. Plus it forced me to ink up some cute little critters I have not used before from MFT. The cute little trees are from Altenew and I just love them and I think have only used them three times. I colored the critters with Copics and a bit of colored pencils. I used white paint for my snowfall and the rolling hills are from Lawn Fawn. I used my computer for the greeting. Oh, and I inked the sky with oxide inks.

While I am at it I am going to link up over at NBUS with the lovely Darnell!

I hope you are ready to work on stocking up your Birthday cards for the year and will come join us at Seize the Birthday! That team of mine has some amazing work over there! Please take care, Nanc’

Hello!

Hello, I am starting off today with the first challenge of the New Year over at Just Us Girls where I just so happen to be the hostess! It is Word Week and I have the perfect word to welcome the New Year…the word is Hello!

This card was time-consuming but so worth the effort of cutting and stamping all those stems to make a wreath. I just love the way it turned out. I really do love an occasional all die-cut card!

Card Details: The leaves, the Hello, and the flowers are all from MFT. Some gold Nuvo drops for the center of the flowers and randomly placed.

The Just Us Girls team and the TWO Guest designers…Melanie and Carol have some amazing cards over on the blog! Come check them out and play along!

Take care, Nanc’

Peace

Hi again, I have two very quick and simple cards for you today using the great Christmas stencil from MFT once again. I made quite a few of the above design in various colors and will be sharing the rest in a future post I am sure. Today I am linking the first card up over at Christmas Kickstart where the word is Peace and my friend and fellow STB DT member Shirley is guesting. The MFT stencil has the word peace on it as well.

Here is the second card.

Card Details: MFT Christmas stencil, Poinsettia die is Impression Obsession, peace die- SU, both scalloped circles are Spellbinders, circle die is SU, tag die is MFT.

Stay safe out there and good luck accomplishing your to do list, Nanc’

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’
