Bubble Kisses

Hi, I finally felt like getting inky today, so after my chores were done I went to work.   I have recently received this adorable MFT set called Bubbled Over with Joy and I couldn’t wait to open it up.  It’s been a while since I did some paper piecing and I thought these darling bunnies would be perfect for it. I went searching for a challenge to partake in and I landed at the Time Out Challenge and The Color Throwdown.  The Time Out Challenge is helping to show awareness of Epilepsy, hence the purple ribbon!  This hits close to home so I was sure I wanted to play along.  My sister has Epilepsy and it is a complicated condition that is often misunderstood.

I used both Copic and Colored pencils. The sunray stencil and the rounded corner stitched rectangle die are from MFT. I also used a SU dots EF for my white background piece. This is the card that inspired me!

I hope however you chose to spend the day it helped ease your sorrow, Stay safe! Nanc’

You Inspire Me!

Hello, I hope this post finds you well during these trying times in our life.  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a color challenge beginning.  This isn’t the card I intended on posting for this challenge, but luckily I made another one yesterday (not realizing at all) that it was in the same color pallet of our challenge starting today.  Anyways, you see my computer crashed and I took it in to be repaired and my other card is on that computer.  I sent it to myself via email, and now can’t find it on hubby’s computer. So here is card number two!  I feel silly even explaining this to you when there are real problems we are facing.  I wish I could drive to California and retrieve my family and bring them here!  This is seriously getting real folks!

I hope in the midst of all this uncertain times, if you feel like crafting you will consider playing along with us at Just Us Girls.

These cards were fun to create and let me escape the real world for a bit. I made my own stencil using a VERVE leaf.  I found this gold shimmery gel in my studio closet and it worked perfectly!  The background was first sponged with Oxide Ink.  The inspire die is by Penny Black, the flower and YOU are MFT, and the Me So Much is from SU.  The little flowers were also sponged with the gold gel.

Here is a pic of the background and the stencil gel I stumbled upon.

 

Here is my second card!

Hugs to each one of you and hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS!  Nanc’

Spring Animals

Hello,  Yesterday after hubby and I took a very relaxing walk I went to my studio for some quiet time and this is what I did.  I knew as soon as I saw the Twofer Challenge for the month I would be joining along. I have a cute MFT stamp set that had yet to be opened, so it was the perfect opportunity to break that seal.

Details: MFT stamps and Dies, Spring Sentiment is from Michaels, the Happy Birthday stamp is SSS, The Tag die is MFT, Lawn Fawn Hilltop dies, clouds stencil MFT, and Washi Tape. Colored with Copics and a smidge of colored pencils along with Oxide Inks for the clouds. One of my cards was inspired by this darling card HERE!

Thanks so much for popping by! Your visits and comments are so appreciated.  Take care of yourselves, Nanc’

Love is in the mail…

 

Hello, Don’t know about how you are feeling this morning but the world has me a bit perplexed. I sometimes think that this is a horrible dream and I will wake up soon.  I don’t know how I am supposed to feel.  I don’t want to stop living my life and going places because businesses are counting on me.  People’s lives are in our hands so to speak.  However, If I feel scared or worried to go out am I overreacting?  If I don’t seem concerned enough, am I naive or worse….stupid.  Should I stop watching the news or going on FB to ease my worry and then be so far out of the loop that I have no idea what is going on?  I just don’t know what to do?  I feel a bit strange even posting a card and acting like it’s just another Saturday, but here I am.  I would love to know how you are feeling and if I am alone?

This card is for Trend Week over at Just Us Girls.  We are to use black backgrounds on our cards.

Card Details: Sentiment is from MFT, the daisies are Elizabeth Craft Designs and the hilltop die is Lawn Fawn.  This card is nearly identical of one I posted a few days ago for STB.  I just love the layout so much I had to try again. You can find my other card by scrolling.

Take care and go wash those hands,  Nanc’

Get Well!

 

It’s word week at Just Us Girls and I have a very simple card for you this week.  I thought it was time to try and make a card with my bits and box leftovers and this is what I came up with.  How many bits boxes do you have?  And are they categorized in any way?  I have quite a few! I do have mine somewhat organized, and I one rather large bowl that sits on my desk, and when it gets to be overflowing that is when I stop and put each piece where they belong.

Enough about that! Here are a few card details: MFT stitched Flowers and rectangles and a Verve sentiment.  The circle die is SU and the scalloped circle is Spellbinders.

I hope you will swing by Just Us Girls and join us and while you are there help us in welcoming our new guest for the month…Vicky Hayes! 

Take care, Nanc’

Inlay Die Cutting

Hello,  I am the hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Wild Card Week and that means I can choose anything at all. I decided upon Inlay Diecuts.  They are so fun and simple to do and usually have fabulous results.  The store where I sell my cards was asking for some unisex baby cards and luckily I have had this card done for quite some time as crafting is hard to squeeze in these days. I absolutely adore this MFT baby die cut set!  You must head on over to Just Us Girls and check out the rest on my team’s cards.  They are all amazing and oh so different.

I would also like to thank Betty Jacobsen for being with us this month.  Each one of her cards were so terrific!

I hope you have a great day, Nanc’

You Made Me Smile

I hope you have a very creative day and consider stopping by JUGS and joining us! Nanc’

Bundle of Love

Hello, If you know me a lot or maybe a little, you know I love a good Color Challenge, so when I saw the colors over at The Color Throwdown I knew right away I wanted to play along. Look at that graphic…aren’t those mittens super cool?  I needed a card for a baby shower for a co-worker, so I had to go that direction instead of the typical Valentines’ that everyone is starting to create this time of year.  All of my supplies are MFT except for the sentiment which is Verve.  What do you think of the Tag insert…was it a stupid idea?  I am on the fence. LOL I used a mix of Prisma and Copics for my sweet Elephant and kite.

I am also going to link my card up at The Paper Players where they have a love theme starting. I thought my card worked perfectly since it says “Love is in the Air” and my Ele is floating among the clouds.

So happy you paid me a visit, they always bring a smile to my face.  Nanc’
