Trees at Twofer!

I have wanted so badly to join in the fun over at the Twofer Challenge this month, and couldn’t seem to settle on the perfect stamp. Then I came across a never used stamp set from Altenew, that I completely forgot I had.  They so happen to be trees!  Apple trees actually. It was fate, I tell you!  If you aren’t familiar with the Twofer Challenge you have to go check it out!  You take their theme of the month and make two completely different cards using the same stamp/ die or what have you. Darnell and the team are fabulous!

On the Elephant card I used the tops of the tree to make the clouds, the grass, bushes, and to color my balloon. Here is a picture of the stamp set so you may understand it better.  On the tree card, it was a bit tricky to line the stamps up perfectly even after lots of practice.  I think they look pretty good, but the yellow one is the best!

I so appreciate your visit.  Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Some Card details: Tree card-Altenew Apple Tree set, SU stitched rectangles, SU Thank You sentiment, Cuttlebug-Dot EF, Tag-Spellbinders

 Elephant card- MFT-Adorable Elephants, Wonky Rectangles and Sun-stencil, Sentiment-Verve

Birthday Greetings!

Hi,  Hope you week has been good so far!  I am hanging in there best I can.  Let’s just say my health has not been cooperating over the past few months and I am losing my patients to say the least.  The doctors and I can’t seem to get to the bottom of it all. I will not bore you with the entire saga, I just need to catch a break real soon. Preferably before vacation comes around! Anyhoo, you didn’t stop by to read my woes.

Today’s card got rather busy.  It was not my intention to have quite so many layers, but here you have them. The cupcake and the cute little envelope are from Verve.  As I am typing this I am trying to figure out where Birthday came from and I am stumped. I guess that means I officially have TOOOOOO MANY STAMPS! Shhhhh! My hubby might hear you! LOL

Don’t look to closely at my novo drops on my icing, they kinda got messy and over done!

I hope you will consider coming on over to Seize the Birthday and join us for our Anything Goes challenge…as long as it’s birthday related. Also before I go, I need to say a huge thank you to SonjaK for being an Amazing Surprise Party Guest the past two months! We have really enjoyed having you!  Please don’t be a stranger!   Take care, Nanc’

Miss You

Hello, Hope you are having a good day! I have been eyeing this challenge over at Addicted to CAS and decided to take sometime today to join in. The challenge is rainbow.  Hopefully the added embellishments doesn’t disqualify me from CAS.  However if it does, I had fun just the same.

I am also linking up to the Addicted to Stamps and More site where it’s Anything Goes.

I am also enjoying the 30 day coloring challenge but unfortunately I missed yesterday and messed up my perfect track record. I know it’s not a huge deal in the grand scheme of life, but disappointed just the same.

The negative heart die is from SU, the hill stitched border is Lawn Fawn and the stamps and letter dies are MFT.

I sure appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’

Stencils!

Hello, Hope your weekend is off to a great start! It’s time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls. Angie has asked us this week to use stencils on our card and or project! Easy huh! Who doesn’t have a pile of stencils laying around? The stencil I chose for my card is the heart from Heidi Swapp. This card was made for my Hubster!  He has been very patient with me over the past several months, as I have not been well, and I don’t know what I would do without him. He is a keeper for sure! I do not own this adorable otter from MFT, but when my good friend and fellow STB DT member Barb was down in Florida this past winter, she let me ink up this adorable set and take some images back home with me.  Thanks Barbara!!!  I used my oxide inks for the background, and a mixture of Copic and Prisma Colored pencils for the cute little otter. I am not quite sure how I feel about the clear Nuvo drops…I think I got carried away!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and our fabulous guest Patti Kehl this week, who knows you might be chosen as our next Chic of the Week! Happy crafting, Nanc’

JUGS and the Twofer Challenge

Hello Everyone,  I have to say that today is the beginning of our Spring Break!  Woohoooo!  I sure hope this week drags on and on and I manage to accomplish most or all of the incredible long lists of chores and fun activities that I have planned.  Wish me Luck!   Are you all familiar with the Twofer Card Challenge that the incredibly funny and kind Darnell started recently?  Well, I have been eyeing it since its inception, and I decided to incorporate that challenge with my weekly Just Us Girls challenge this week. The Twofer Challenge ends today I do believe, so nothing like getting down to the wire.

The word for the Twofer challenge is Blossom and the Challenge we have for you at JUGS is a Photo challenge.  The picture had a lot to do with Spring flowers and Easter so that is where my inspiration headed this week. I got out my SU Blossom Petals Punch and made my first Floral card.  Then I let my fingers do the walking over at Pinterest for a bunny card to inspire me and I used the same Blossom punch for his ears.  I am not sure anyone has ever used a punch before over at the Twofer challenge, so I hope it’s allowed. Here is the card that inspired me for the bunny and the flower card was my own design.  For the flower-I used the SU Blossom Petals Punch, some MFT for the leaves and grass, SU circle dies for the center of the flower, and the stem was made with a hill die from Lawn Fawn.  For the bunny- I used an MFT stitched heart, My SU Blossom Petals punch, a MS border punch and my Creative memories circle cutter to get the perfect size circles. The sentiment is from Verve. Chalk for his cheeks, a white and black pen and some rhinestones.

Here is a pic of the SU blossom punch!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you come on over to JUGS and check out the rest of the DT’s cards.

ACK!!!!!!  I didn’t take my photos together and the Bunny card has already been sold! I hope it’s okay that I made a collage instead!  I will do better next time, I promise!  Nanc’

Teal and White at STB!

Hello Friends,  We have a great color combo this time over at Seize the Birthday! Teal is one of my all time favorite colors and I just love the look of it paired with white as you can see above.  It’s just so clean and fresh looking, don’t ya think?

Here are a few details of what I used to make my card. Sentiment and leaves are from Verve, EF and butterfly is SU, the scalloped rectangles are from MFT. Some black Nuvo drops and glossy accents on the butterfly and I was done.

Please come on over to STB and check out what the rest of the team and our Surprise Party Guest Kim have done.  Some serious eye candy there! Nanc’

Mythical or Magical at JUGS!

Hello,  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend week an Carol has asked us to use Mythical or Magical creations on our cards and or projects! I knew right away that I was going to be playing with my favorite MFT Dragon stamps, and it looks like I am not the only one on the team that went that direction.  I can’t take credit for my layout of my card as I was inspired by this card HERE!  I used my trusty Prisma Colored pencils for this card.

Please join us over at JUGS this week….the team and our Guest Stef did another fabulous job! Nanc’

Balloons!

Hello Friends,  We have a very easy word for you this week over at Just Us Girls.  The word is Balloons. I decided to get out my favorite  MFT Adorable Elephants set as soon as I saw this challenge. They just make me smile! I also CASED this terrific card I found over on Pinterest! I just recently got the cloud stencil from MFT, so you will have to forgive me as I need a bit more practice with it.  I am such a heavy handed inker!  I also finally got the Wonky rectangles that I have wanted FOREVER and a few other goodies too! I used my faithful prisma colored pencils to color my card.

PLEASE consider joining us at JUGS this week where we have a new guest joining us! Welcome Stef Perry!  We are really happy to have you Stef!

Take care, Nanc’

A True Friend…

Hello,  It’s that time again!  We have a Photo Challenge for you starting over at Just Us Girls. I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  I first used one of my favorite stencils to make a background with my Oxide Inks.  Then I decided to do a little emboss resist to mimic the new growth peering through the snow in the photo. Last, I got out my stitched flowers from MFT and sponged them with some of the same colors from the background. The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.   The entire sentiment will read…..A true friend remembers your birthday …..but not your age.

Before I go I need to say thanks to Tenia for being such a fabulous Guest with us this month!

Hope to see you in the JUGS gallery this week! Nanc’
