I’m too old…

Hello, I am back again today with one more Halloween card and using the darling ghosts once again from Miss Inks Stamps. This time I made my ghosts a tad more realistic using vellum. I stamped the ghost in black Versafine and heat embossed them with clear powder. All stamped images were fussy cut as this set does not have any dies. This card all started with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and at least 3 things from Festive Friday. I chose Purple, Heat Embossed, die cut, and Balloon.

I have had this Halloween embossed piece of black cardstock for probably ten years and have finally put it on a card base. I don’t know whose it is as I got it from a friend, it is covered with Halloween words. I cut off the bottom so I could make the stripes for the Sketch and put my sentiment in the middle.

The card doesn’t photograph that well and looks better in person.

Choose at least 3: I chose Purple, Heat Embossed, die-cut, and Balloon.

Card Details: Halloween EF is from ?, all the stamps are from Miss Ink Stamps-Boo Sheet. The stars are dies from a set called Magical Unicorn from Your Next Stamp. I colored with Copics and then used glossy accents on the boo, pumpkin, and lollipop. The dots are made from a berries die from Spellbinders- Noel set. I like the size of them and the card was missing something and I think the pop of orange helped.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day and a better weekend ahead! Nanc’

Birds at TPP

Hello, It has been a few weeks since I had the opportunity to play along with my friends at The Paper Players, and as soon as I saw the Birds and Bees challenge I knew I could come up with something.

I have made a baby card like this in the past but not using the super fun Cloud Heart stencil from Miss Ink Stamps in conjunction with the MFT cloud stencil. Using both stencils together, I was able to achieve a lot of depth. I just love the way this turned out that I had to make a boy card too.

Card Details: The Cloud Heart Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps and the cloud ripple is from MFT. The stork is from Impression Obsession. The greeting is from MFT.

I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy! Nanc’

MOM

Hello, Things have been on the quieter side of things as of late here in blogland, as we are in the midst of doing some interior and exterior house painting, and things are not where they should be. You know how that goes. I did sneak in a bit of craft time this morning before the real work begins of putting my house back together. Sadly, my studio did not make the final cut on the new paint list as it really didn’t need it as much as I wanted it. LOL

I decided to play along with the ladies over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I had this stenciled panel waiting to be used on my desk, so half the work was done for me. I chose the top row of Mom, Florals, and Ink blending when in fact my card works for three rows on their fun board! That was a happy accident.

I noticed this morning that Time Out Challenges has a theme of Spring beginning, so I will be linking up there as well.

Card Details: Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps, the MOM is from Simon Says Stamps, the flowers are from Pink and Main, and the leaf die is from Verve, the other small greeting is from Simon Says Stamps. A few rhinestones and I was done. Not sure you can tell but I used vellum as my shadow on my mom die.

I hope you find something to do today that brings you joy, Take care, Nanc’
