I Miss You Already

Hello,  I am your hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Color Week.  I have a Spring-like Color palette for you all that are dealing with snow in hopes that it will warm you up a bit, and remind you that eventually it will feel like Spring! We have been having really hot temperatures here in Florida and appears that we may skip Spring altogether. 😦

Today’s card is a mix of MFT and SU. I just adore these MFT elephants and it was time to get them out and play with them again.  I did some emboss resist and didn’t worry too much about my ink blending and am rather happy with the results.  The Ele, florals, and butterflies are MFT. The Ele was colored with Prismas and the sentiment is from SU.

I sure hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us this week!  Who knows you may even become our Chic of the Week!

See you there!  Nanc’

Dots and Stripes!

Hello,  Hope your day is off to a great start! Today starts a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  Our topping that Vicki has chosen is Dots and Stripes.  I had a great time making this card! I paired up some of my MFT flower stamps with some Elizabeth Craft Designs candle die-cuts that I really love, and some fabulous polka dotted paper.  In addition, the die-cut leaves are Verve and the sentiment is SU.  It has some pop dots for dimension as well.

Before I go I would like to welcome the talented Tenia to STB, as she is our next Surprise Party Guest for the next two months!  Tenia, we are all so thrilled to have you joining us!

Happy crafting, Nanc’

Happy 60th- Make Us Laugh!

The inside of my card says….P.S. I am still younger than you! LOL

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Have we got a great topping for you starting at Seize the Birthday!  Lindsey has asked us to ” Make Us Laugh.”  Who doesn’t like to receive a card that makes you laugh! Such a great idea Lindsey! However, if that is a struggle for you, any Birthday card will do. The toppings are always optional. I made the above card for my sister as she just turned 60 on Tuesday.  She really loved it! Especially the inside, which I have written for you above. I am the baby of the family and some say spoiled. LOL.

Shaker cards and I don’t always see eye to eye.  I always get the stupid idea to add glitter or something of that nature inside and it sticks to the acetate and becomes all milky and that drives me crazy. Well, I did it again. However, I did manage to get the majority of it out this time.  NOTE to SELF…Acetate and glitter do not work well together.  Then I also decided at the very end, to add the 60’s, and not sure that was a wise idea either. What’s done is done! Stay tuned as sometime in the near future this MFT Shaker die set may be for sale really cheap. LOL   Card was made with all MFT products! (Thanks to Barbara Campbell for bringing me the sentiments to let me use on her visit.)

Before I go, I would like to give a HUGE thanks to Julie for being such a fabulous Surprise Party Guest. We really enjoyed your work!! Please play along with us any chance you can!

PLEASE hop on over to Seize the BIrthday, as I am sure you will get a chuckle or ten out of the team’s cards!  Nanc’

LOVE you…

Hello,  Today I am linking my card up over at Freshly Made Sketches and CAS Mix Up Challenges. My sentiment is a little bit more to the right than it should be, and I extended the underneath color to the right as well for balance, so I hope that’s ok.  The blending didn’t come out so well, so I added some splatters to distract your eyes. LOL The heart paper is from SU and does a resist when you ink it up…so fun, the YOU sentiment is from Neat and Tangled, and the Love die is from SSS.  It’s hard to see the dimension on my card as it was dreary when I took the photo…so I hope it’s enough for the challenge.

I so appreciate your visits and Happy Stamping! Nanc’

Happy Birthday

IMG_0501.jpg

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start.  It’s time again for our Anything Goes over at Seize the Birthday.  I would love for you to join us, but please remember to make it a Birthday theme.

Here are a few card details:  I got this wooden stamp recently and couldn’t wait to ink it up!  First, I inked it up with very light grey ink and then colored it in with Prisma Colored Pencils. I believe it’s only the second or third time that I have colored on black cardstock. I love the look of it, and not sure why I don’t do it more. The banner die is from MFT and the sentiment is from Verve. In hindsight, I wish I hadn’t added the various (MFT) leaves in the open spaces…but what you gonna’ do. What’s done is done.

I would love to also link this card up over at The Flower Challenge where they want us to use one of our latest stamps.

The DT and our Surprise Party Guest Julie have really got some great cards over on the blog, come on over and check them out.

Take care, Nanc’

FRIEND!

Hi,  As soon as I saw the colors over at The Color Throwdown, I was inspired to play along.  I have been wanting to use a new stencil that I got from SSS for a while now and thought it was the perfect time.  I got out my Dylusion spray (from Ranger) which just so happens to be the perfect color Fuschia to match the photo. Then I decided I would divide the panels for added interest.  It was still missing something, so I added the black inlay FRIEND using my MFT letters. I finished it off with a couple of MFT flowers, sequins, and a sentiment from Whimsical Stamps.

You will be seeing this stencil again in a few days!

Thanks for stopping by , Nanc’

JOY

Happy Weekend! Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend Week.  The Trend that Carol chose for us is Wood. I feel like I cheated a bit, as the only thing I have on my card that is wooden is a star that I have stained with ink and decorated to look like a Christmas Cookie. I know…epic fail on my part. I do like the way this card came together though. I used a JOY die and a sentiment from MFT and the fun paper is from SU.

Please head on over to Just Us Girls, where I can assure you, the team did a little bit more than I with this challenge.  Nanc’

Love YOU!

Hello there,  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a new challenge starting and the word Ina has for us this week is LOVE!  Easy huh?  I stepped out of the box a bit and decided to do something that wasn’t red, which is the typical color we all think of when you hear that word. I also would like to welcome out guest designer…Lisa Elton, https://mypapertales.blogspot.com/.  She will be with us all month! Welcome Lisa, we are thrilled you are joining us!

Here is a bit about my card!  Flower is very dear to me and is from Verve! One of my first stamps I ever bought from Julee. The leaves are a punch from SU and then embossed for added texture. The flowers were colored using the smooshing technique and oxide inks. I think they came out great! The heart die is from MFT, the love die is from Neat and Tangled and the you is Simon Says Stamps. The background was lightly stenciled.

I am so happy you paid me a visit.  If you are creating this week…please won’t you join us! Nanc’

Crafty Friends…

Over at TIME OUT Challenges they have a great phrase to inspire you. They call the challenge…Inspired by words.  It’s quite a long phrase, so it has a lot of room for creativity. I knew right away that this Altenew stamp would be the perfect phrase for this challenge. This card was made with a mix of SU, MFT products, and Altenew. Oh, and some Ric Rac…Love that stuff!  I really love that sunflower from SU, and that DP too.

I hope whatever you decide to do today, you enjoy it! Nanc’

Snowman Joy!

Hello Friends, Got another FUN Christmas card with my MFT Joy die set! You can’t help but smile when you see that cute little snowman staring back at you! I just love polka dots, and when I got this fun Washi tape out the other day I thought it would make a great accent to his cute little hat. I am linking this cute little guy up over at Muse Christmas Visions and again at Inkspirational.

I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for your sweet comments as of late, and your visits too! Hugs, Nanc’
