Just BEEcause

Hello, It’s CAS week at The Paper Players and LeAnne has chosen a fun one for us! I bought this Bee die cut about 5 years ago for my son’s wedding, as the theme was Bees. I made 200 party favors with it and don’t think I have used it much since. I was excited to get it back out when I saw this challenge coming up. In order to make the sentiment, I took a Because stamp and cut it at the BE mark so I could repeat the E. The scalloped rectangles and edge dies are from MFT. The DSP I have had for an eternity and has a velvet touch. I like that I used the positive and negative of that great paper and got two cards out of it. 

Here is my second card!

Happy Birthday @ Color Hues

Hello, I hope this post finds you well and enjoying your day! It is the middle of the month and time for our next hues of color at Color Hues. The colors Cindy has chosen are Lime Green and Aqua. As you can see on my card, Aqua is one of those colors that can either be on the bluer or greener side of the color wheel, it just depends on your interpretation. When I hear Aqua, I think water so I chose the bluer side.

Card Details: MFT- Cover-plate, Stitched flowers-MFT, Wreath-Stampin Up, Leaves-Stampin Up, sentiment-Verve, silver glitter paper and a small punch, and a few rhinestones.

Over at CH, we have Rosemary joining us as our guest and I would like to take a minute and give her a quick welcome. Welcome!! Rosemary was our winner from our last challenge and we are happy to have her along.

Now, once again if you don’t pop on over to Color Hues and check out ALL the cards by the Design Team…you will be missing out! They are all truly fabulous!

Take care and hope to see you in the gallery! Nanc’

Sending HUGS

Hello there. Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Color Week. Jaydee has chosen a fun color trio for us this time around. Since I was pushed for time this week, I made a card very similar to a design you may have seen before. But that is okay, right? Who better to CASE than yourself! I also feel that this entire heart background thing that I have been doing so much of lately just works for me, and is such a fun and easy for all different types of cards. To stick to the colors this week and I knew the blue and green would have to be saved for the water, I thought…why not an entirely yellow sky. I had a bit of a brain fart when I selected my card base, however it is still in the blue family though. I have been having a ton of those brain lapses lately and I know it’s just stress and lack of proper sleep, hopefully the team will be okay with it.

Card Details: I used MFT cloud stencil and a heart stencil to start my background. I then masked off the rest to create my water. The water ripples are made with a stamp. You do have to do a lot of thinking and masking and covering when doing these types of scenes. They are never perfect, but that is what makes them handmade. The water and all the birds are from the same SU set called High Tide. The greeting is from Catherine Pooler and the boat is from Impression Obsession.

Hello Sunshine

Hello, I am here today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Sue is our hostess and she wants us to use recycled items on our card and or project. Nearly every piece of my card is made from recycled cardboard…EXCEPT the watercolored paper that I inked up with some Oxide Ink to make the water. I do love the crisp whit card-front. I love some of the texture that cardboard adds to the design. The Palm fronds looks wonderful in real life.

Over at Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge they have a challenge going on that is called Hello sunshine which is where my inspiration for my card began.

Card Details: MFT dies and Verve greeting. Some Oxide ink, water, and colored pencil was used as well. Pop dots for dimension.

Come check out all the creative ways the JUGS Design Team tackled this week’s challenge and then join us!

Take care, Nanc’

Cheers to Your Birthday

Hello, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new challenge beginning. Tae Eun has chosen Framed as our topping this time around. Such a fun and easy way to add some interest to your card design. It was such a fun and quick card to put together.

I am going to also link my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where the challenge is Any Occasion.

Card Details: I have a mix of products for this card. MFT-Sentiment and Wonky Rectangles, the dotted die cut is from Sunny Studios, the Wine bottle and glasses are from Paper Roses. You might not be able to tell in the pic…the bottle is made out of vellum and the glasses are shimmery silver card-stock. The enamel dots are from SU.

Hop on over to Seize the Birthday sometime in the next two weeks and check out the fabulous Design Team’s cards and join us! Nanc’

Stars and Stripes

Hi, Boy oh boy do we have the perfect challenge starting today over at The Paper Players. Anne Marie has chosen Stars and Stripes appropriately enough on this July 4th Holiday Weekend! What a fun graphic she put together too as it is full of inspiration. It certainly inspired me, if you couldn’t tell!

Card Details: I was in the need of a baby card and you can never go wrong when you pull out the great die set by MFT. The white stars are a die are from Your Next Stamp and the greeting is from Stampin Up. The wonky rectangle is also MFT.

Bananas for you

Hello crafters, Today at The Paper Players we have a Clean and Simple challenge beginning and the fun theme that sweet Joanne has chosen is Fruits & Berries. I had to dig deep in my neglected stamps bin to find some fruit for this challenge. Luckily, I came across this stamp set with these cute bananas in it. Now, this stamp set is very poor quality as I probably picked it up at Michaels eons ago, so just ignore the jagged black lines on the edge of the bananas.

I am pairing this challenge with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge that is going on right now. I saw that they also had a choice of CAS so it was very easy to incorporate the center row of Any Color, Free, and CAS in my design.

Card details: I have no idea what company makes this stamp and or greeting. The scalloped edge die is from MFT. I used some Copics and Prismas for some really quick and haphazard coloring. CAS is hard for me so I decided some small paper punched dots might liven it up a bit.

I Heard you were…

Hello, It is the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues! Sheri has chosen a color combo that I really, really love…Aqua and Black. I just adore these dragons from MFT, don’t you? A dear friend of mine’s hubby was having some heart issues and I made this especially for him. Over at Color Hues we have the fabulous Trina Pham joining us as our guest!

Here is a close up of my cute dragon.

Card Details: Dragon, sentiment, and both types of clouds are MFT. The stars are dies also and from Your Next Stamp. I used both Copics and Prismas as my medium.

There is no shortage of inspiration over at Color Hues by the Design Team and Trina, come be inspired! Nanc’

Flip Flop Birthday

Hello, We have the brightest and most beautiful Color Challenge starting today at The Paper Players! Claire is our fabulous hostess and she was so colorful in her selection. My first thought was to make the striped DSP to match the colors and I am glad I did.

Life is not improving and I am so lucky I worked way ahead on all my challenge blogs as I hate to let anyone down, so I am going to have to wrap this up!

Here is card number 2.

I am going to be linking up over at Happy Little Stampers as well with Anything Goes with dies.

A Few Card Details: Tags and the scalloped die are from MFT, I made the flip flops from Impression Obsession die with strips of paper. The first cards sentiment is from MFT and the second card’s sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps. The hearts on the flip flops are from the SU owl punch.

Feline Fine

Hi, Over at The Paper Players today we have the cutest challenge for you! LeAnne, has CAS week and her theme is Feline Fine! Is that darling or what?

Card Details: I first got my acetate out and masked off my center panel and sponged it with Oxide Inks. Next, I used my new heart stencils from Honey Bee stamps and white ink and sponged my hearts. The images and greeting are from MFT- and the Ric Rac die is MFT as well. The frame, that reminds me of a Polaroid is a die from a friend. I used Copic as my medium of choice!

Please won’t you join us this week at The Paper Players, the team has done it again with loads of “Feline” inspiration for you to enjoy! Take care of yourselves, Nanc’
