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’

Tags at JUGS!

 

Hello Friends,  I am hosting this week over at Just Us Girls and the Trend I have chosen is TAGS!  I believe it’s something that never goes out of style! I chose to put a tag on my card, but if you decide to join us and you just want to make a tag by itself, that is okay too!  Hope to see you in our gallery!  Gotta make it short as things are a little bit crazy in my life! Take care,  Nanc’

Card Info: MFT is the primary dies used on this card, along with at Verve sentiment, verve leafs, and Gina K paper. Some Nuvo drops for my daisy centers.

Candles

Hello Friends,  We have the perfect topping for you this week at Seize the Birthday! Everyone loves a few candles on their cake don’t they?  As long as it’s just a few and not the actual number, and you can hardly see the cake amongst the barrage of flames. LOL  Anyways, you get the picture! That is our topping this week at STB! I went with a really colorful and basic card this time around.  I do love those candle stencils from Elizabeth Craft Designs and my fun new THICK SU Hexagon EF that you can barely see in the photo. Trust me, it makes really deep pronounced lines! The sentiment is one from Close to My Heart and the flower is MFT.

Have a wonderful day and please head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the rest of the Designers cards along with our guest Kristie! Their creativity far exceeds mine this week! Hugs, Nanc’

Love Notes at TPP

Hello Friends,  I had a short time to play in my studio on Sunday and as soon as I saw the challenge over at The Paper Players I knew it would work perfectly for the amount of time I had carved away. Love the look of inlay die-cuts don’t you?

The heart dies are MFT, the i die is from Verve, and the You and all the paper is SU.

Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Happy New Year!

Hello,  Happy New Year to you all!  I hope your New Year is off to a great start! It’s time for our first post of 2018 over at Seize the Birthday and we are starting the year with our Anything Goes Challenge. Just remember it needs to be a Birthday theme.

I have had this piece of DP in my scraps for so long, and I was determined to find a place on a card for it, and I finally did. I paired it up with some Verve leaf dies and a sentiment, a SU EF and circle die, and some MFT flowers.  Some gold Nuvo drops to top it off.

Before I go I would also like to welcome Kristie Goulet as our Surprise Party Guest over at STB.   I have been a HUGE fan of Kristie’s for the past 8 years and am thrilled to have her guesting with us these next two months.  She is really talented and her blog Kreative Kristie is linked up for you!

Another Holiday Card

 

Hello Friends,  I have another holiday card to share with you today that goes along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I selected the center row which is, Holiday, Die-cut and Metallic.  I have embossed this great tree stamp from Stampendous with some of my fabulous Glittery Embossing Powder from WOW, I just love this stuff. The snowflakes are a punch from MS.  The scalloped die is from MFT. The glittery paper is from SU.  This card looks so much better IRL.

Have a fabulous day, it’s time to get back to baking! Nanc’
