Snowman Birthday

Hello, Today’s card is for Photo Week over at Just Us Girls where Lisa E. is our fabulous hostess. She picked the cutest and most perfect photo for us that encaptures both winter and Valentine’s Day. My card was made for my BIL that loves the snow and has a birthday right after Christmas.

I am also linking up over at- Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge where it’s Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: The snowman is from Pretty Pink Posh, the trees are brand new to me and are MFT, the hills were made with Lawn Fawn dies. The sentiment is from Verve and the speech bubble is from SU. I used Oxide inks for my background and Copics and Prismas to color my trees. I am super happy with my trees and the entire card, actually! This card was inspired by this on here!

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls as the team and our guests have done an INCREDIBLE job with this photo! I know you will be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’

Sending Lots of Hugs

Hello, I am back again today with another Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower card. I am still working on perfecting the shades of color on the flower by inking up either white or colored cardstock. I have another card where I am very happy with the way the flower turned out, but this one isn’t so bad. I hope to put that flower on a card very soon. Kinda wish I hadn’t put on the white dots in the center of the flower, oh well!

My card was inspired by the great color challenge going on over at The Color Throwdown. DT member Susie picked a great one that caught my attention right away. Check it out below. A lot of the supplies for this card were leftovers in my bits and boxes that I am determined to use up or organize this week. Do you have any organizational plans in the New Year when it comes to crafting? I just got finished labeling the stencils that I have in a 3 ringed binder. I am really happy about that! No more having to jog my memory on whose it is or what it’s called, it also makes putting them back easier. The binder is quite full and it appears I have an addiction to stenciling. LOL

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps inked on light yellow cardstock, Hugs die -MFT, Sending lots of-Gina K., Scalloped Rectangles-MFT, Border Punch is from Martha Stewart, Leaves are from Sizzix and embossed with a dotted EF, Nuvo drops, Inked up the flower with some Oxide Inks and a bit of Copics, White Gel Pen. DSP is a great pack from Pink and Main.

Thanks for coming by as I appreciate your visits! Take care, Nanc’

Hugs

Hello, I am back today with a card for the Color Challenge going on over at The Paper Players! Ann Marie’s color palette really spoke to me this week. In fact, do you remember when sponge painting the walls of your house was the thing to do? Well, back when hubby and I first got married and him being an artist and all, we got the crazy idea to sponge paint our living room with two opposing walls teal and two walls coral. Not kidding! Now when I see pics I think, what on earth! LOL It was bold, that is for sure. Thanks for the memory, Ann Marie!

FYI, I used a dark Catherine Pooler Ink called Mardi Gras

for my Jade and it looks like I used aqua in the pic. 😦

I have had my Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower die set for quite some time and hadn’t yet broken the seal on the packaging and thought it was way past time! Plus my NEW stenciled background is from Miss Ink Stamps and called Leafy Green. If you haven’t checked out their products you should! They have some really great stuff and great quality too! I have them linked up for you!

I will also be linking up with Darnell over at NBUS and the die-cut challenge over at Happy Little Stampers too.

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps, hugs die -MFT, DSP -SU, New Leafy Green stencil from Miss Ink Stamps, Scalloped rectangles-MFT, Dewdrops-Honey Bee Stamps (Love them!)

You will be seeing more of this Coneflower very soon! Really loving it!

I hope no matter how hard life can be these days you find something to do that brings you joy!

Take care, Nanc’

Winter Wonderland

Hello, I am back today with the next Theme challenge at The Paper Players. This week, Jaydee is our wonderful hostess and she has chosen Winter Wonderland for us. This Florida girl doesn’t typically make too many winter scenes but thought it might be fun to make another snowglobe card like I did last year.

Over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I am playing along with The Center Row of Glitz, Free, and Christmas.

Card Details: Stencil background is MFT, the Snowglobe is Lawn fawn, the cute little Santa is from Neat and Tangled, and the greeting is from SU. Added a bit of glitz/shimmer on my snowglobe and glitter inside for snow!

#Celebrate

Hello, I hope all is well with you! It’s Thursday so you can probably figure out that it is time for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday. Julie is our hostess and she has a very fun topping for us this time around. What is your Beverage of choice? I guess it would depend on the time of day. Although, I am a huge coffee drinker and can drink it morning noon, and night. The staff at DD know me by name. LOL I thought it would be the perfect time to make another Gift Card Holder. I totally failed to take a photo of the inside of the card and it is long gone. So I will show you the die below so you get the idea.

I am going to add this card to the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge as well!

Card Details: Here is a photo of the die so you can see how it works. As you can see the cup itself is the cardholder and you decorate the sleeve. I have used some coffee cups from MFT to do just that. The hashtag greeting was gifted to me and is from Papertrey Ink. I stumbled upon the DSP in my stash and that was a happy find and helped me choose my color direction! The Chevron EF is from SU.

Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and you can see a huge variety of beverages! I hope you will be inspired to join us.

Take care, Nanc’

Last of the Boos

This is my second post for the day if you are looking for Just Us Girls…scroll down!

Hello, I am wrapping up the Halloween cards with this post today, at least I think I am. You probably don’t believe me with my track record in all. LOL. I was inspired to pull my Miss Ink Ghosts out again yesterday because of the fabulous photo over at The Color Throwdown, to my defense they have pastel ghosts in the pic! What’s a girl to do but comply. Then the challenge over at Inspired By is Who’s Your Boo! See why I had to play along?

Card Details: A lot of masking and covering for this card background. Miss Inks stamps-Boo Sheet, Miss Ink stencils Cloud Hearts and MFT cloud stencil. Oxide inks and Prismas. The heart stencil in the middle of the cloud heart is from Honey Bee Stamps.

Are you still making Halloween cards or you up to your eyeballs in Thanksgiving or Christmas already?

Take care, NANC’

I Can’t Wait to Meet You

Hello, It’s the weekend and time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls! It happens to be photo week and Cecile has chosen the most precious photo. I decided to do the obvious and make a baby card.

Card Details: Postal dies are from Hero Arts. The clouds are from MFT and I have vellum behind them. The Star stamp is a very old SU set. The Fox, White Stars, and Greeting are all MFT. I used Copics and pencils for my medium. Lots of dimensionals too.

Now head on over to Just Us Girls and check out the Design Team’s cards along with our guest Nora. I know you will be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’

Holey Sheet, It’s Halloween!

Hello, I hope your day is off to a good start or should I say ending, depending where you live. LOL I have another card using Miss Ink Stamps-Boo Sheet and I couldn’t be happier about it. I tell you they are so much fun to work with. I told you the other day that when I purchased the stamp set I also got the Cloud Hearts stencil. It was all because I saw one card over on IG by Brenda Noelke, and I was completely mesmerized by her cloud centers and the depth she achieved! Let me just say, there is a learning curve for sure as my clouds look nothing likes hers. The card is so good that I have it linked up for you, and the center cloud stencil is linked, along with a screen shot of her fabulous card below.

Here is a close up of mine!

The card below is my first attempt! Luckily the ghosts and sentiments cover a lot of the not so great spots.

Trick or Treat I don’t have feet might be one of my favorite sentiments in this set.

I was thrilled to see the Halloween challenge going on over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge so I will be playing along there as well. FYI….They carry Miss Ink products too!

I will also be playing at Happy Little Stampers for their Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: Miss Ink Stamps-Boo Sheet and Cloud Heart Stencil, Regular Cloud Stencil is MFT, Oxide inks, Colored Pencil and some stars and dimensionals. I also did some white paint splatters.

Thanks for sticking with me for this long post! Happy creating, Nancy

Best Wishes-Flower Challenge

Hello, I hope all is well with you! I have another floral card for you today using some very pretty leaf patterned paper and my MFT lily dies. I just love these lilies and their leaves! Sadly, I don’t believe they are available any longer.

This card was totally inspired by the Flower Challenge this month. Where they are celebrating their 5th Birthday and have asked us to use a shape on our card. Congrats to them and their Superbly talented Design Team on such an accomplishment! Go check them out, they have prizes over there too!

I am also going to link up with the fun over at Happy Little Stampers Die Cut Challenge.

Card Details: The Lilies, the scalloped rectangle are from MFT. Both oval dies are from Spellbinders. I uses some Oxide Inks and a sponge dauber to give some color to my lilies. The sentiment is from SU. I used my favorite Dew Drops from Honey Bee Stamps to finish it off.

Make sure you take some time this week to be creative, it’s good for the soul. Nanc’

Happy Birthday for Color Week

Hello friends, Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Color Week and Ann Marie has selected some a great pallet. For my fourth color, I obviously chose green. Don’t look too closely you’ll see that my polka dotted paper is not straight. I hate when the happens! It really, really bugs me? How about you?

Card Details: Tree, grass and deer are all MFT. The sentiment is a sticker and actually made out of wood and something I have had sitting in my scrap box forever. I put a piece of green behind the tree and then came back with a lighter color and pieced it back together in various spots leaving some still inlayed. I added the peach hearts and then finished it off with some quick Copics and Prismas on my cute little deer.
