Red and Orange

Second card for the day! JUGS post is below!

Hello, Here we are again, as the calendar keeps changing and it’s already May 1st. Can you believe it? I can’t! However, in the crafting world it’s a good thing, as that means it is time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Kristie is our hostess and she has chosen Red and Orange as our color duo. I had some fun with this color combo. I also knew I was going to be making this a Mother’s Day card and thought it would work perfectly for the Addicted to Stamps and More Any Occasion Challenge. So I am linking up over there as well.

Card Details: I have a mix of supplies for today’s card: The background was inked with a fun stencil. The heart die cut is from MFT. The flower array is from SU and from the bloom and Grow set. I colored the flowers TOO HEAVY handed with Copics. I tried to come in with a white Prisma pencil to give the flowers some shading, it only helped a wee bit! The white sprigs are also SU and from Forever Fern. The sentiment is from Paper Roses. I did an inlay with the heart and added a few gems.

Now, it’s time to pop on over to Color Hues, if you haven’t already, and check out what the Design Team and our fabulous sweet and talented guest Tracey McNeely have done. You are sure to be inspired!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Yellow and Grey

Hello, It’s the middle of the month and time for the next hues of color to begin over at Color Hues. I have been looking forward to this color combo for quite sometime. Design Team member Karen made this selection and it’s one of my all time favorites! Did you know that it’s the Pantone Colors of 2021? I didn’t, but I love learning new things! Thanks Karen!

Here is another view of my card.

Card Details: I so enjoyed putting this card together. The new die cut set is from Sizzix and called Spring Foliage. The heart border die is an oldie but favorite of mine from Verve. The greeting is from Stampin Up. The stitched heart is from MFT.

I am going to be linking up my card over at NBUS as this Sizzix set is brand new to me.

Please come join us over at Color Hues where the Design Team has once again blown me away with their cards! The talented Amy Kolling is joining us too! Welcome Amy! We are thrilled to have you along with us!

I hope you have a very enjoyable day! Nanc’

MOM

Hello, Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your day! I needed to work on some inventory this afternoon, after hubby and I had lunch at the park and went for our daily walk, and I knew right away when I sat down I was going to create something for this fabulous color combo going on over at The Color Throwdown. I couldn’t wait to get started because I just love pink, and in this challenge they have two shades of pink paired with cream. Those colors just screamed Mother’s Day card to me. This card was fun to put together.

Here is a front shot of the card.

Details: A few days ago I had a SSS order come in with this fun new stencil from Altenew called Rose Bouquet and a great SSS MOM die-cut, along with maybe a few other things. LOL So since these items were used for the first time, I am going to link my card up over at NBUS also. After I inked my base of my leaves I came back with a Q-tip to give the leaves some more realistic definition with the same Antique linen ink. It worked perfectly. The bottom sentiment is from Paper Roses- Mother’s Day Quotes and I just love it. Not sure I should have inked it in black ( and crooked-grr) but it’s a little late now. LOL I finished it off with a ribbon and some Nuvo drops in groups of 3.

I hope if you are celebrating Easter tomorrow you have a truly wonderful day. Take care, Nanc’
