Something Sweet!

DSC_0171

Hello Everyone, We have a fun topping for you this time around over at Seize the Birthday! The topping is something Sweet!  Easy and delicious …huh?  This card came together rather quickly once I found this great DP in my stash. My cupcake has this awesome sprinkle glitter on it ( it’s one of those things you find in the bottom of your craft box, and it’s amazing, and you know you will never be able to find it again ) it almost looks good enough to eat!  I have used many different companies on my card, I tend to do that a lot! Let me know if you have any questions about what is what!

You MUST come on over to STB and check out the DT’s cards…They are all fabulous!

School is nearly out and I have a three day weekend ahead of me! Yippee! Take care, Nanc’

You Make Life Magical…

Hello Friends, It’s time again for another fun challenge over at Seize the Birthday! The topping for this go around is Creatures or Animals.  I will say that this MFT stamp set inspired my topping idea! Aren’t these dragons just the cutest?  My family and I have a thing for dragons. I will be saving this card for my son’s birthday for sure! He will love it even if he’s 25. LOL Over at STB we have a new Surprise Party Guest joining us…her name is Cathy Roffey. Also, one of our fabulous DT members is also back with us!  Yippee! Welcome Back Patti! I am over the top excited that you are back!  Okay, about my card….I colored this cute little images with my Prisma colored pencils and the clouds are from Lawn Fawn.  I use the negative pieces from my MFT rectangle scallops for the double frame.  Come on by STB and check out the amazing cards from the entire team and consider joining us!

I so appreciate all your visits,  Happy Stamping! Nanc’

Happy Graduation!

Hello Friends, It’s Wildcard Week at Just Us Girls and Judy is our hostess!  I love the challenge she picked out for us…it’s Paper Piecing! Since graduation time is fast approaching I thought it was time to get a head start. This card was so much fun to put together. I started with this AWESOME paper pack from Stampin Up. The boat and tag die is from Verve and the Happy Graduation is from SU too. My waves were made with my Creative Memories cutter and as you probably can tell, I can’t get enough of my MFT stitched rectangles!  I think I use them on just about every card!  I hope you will consider joining us this week at JUGS! I also want to say a quick farewell to Laurie, she has been with us as a guest this month and has done such a fabulous job! Happy Crafting! Nanc’

Vellum at STB!

Hello Friends,  We have a fun topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday and that is to use Vellum on your card and or project! Easy huh?  I first want to clarify that this card was not my original idea!  Below is the GORGEOUS card I CASED! I can’t find the original post!  I know it’s from someone I follow regularly.  Looks like a Laurie Schmidlin card from Just Give Me Stamps if you ask me, but I can’t be certain! Heavy sigh!  Any hoozal…life must go on! My card is for a dear friend of mine that is turning 80 very soon. The stitched rectangle, banner dies, flowers, and floral leaf are all from MFT. The bow is from Paper Smooches and the vellum tag was cut with my SU tag punch and scalloped with my Fiskars victorian blade. The Happy Birthday that I divided is from Verve. Such a quick and fun card to put together.  I think before I stick it in the mail it needs some bling!

Have a great day and please come and join us at Seize the Birthday…my teammates and Surprise Party Guest Anita did a fabulous job! Happy Stamping! Nanc’

Pink, Purple and Grey

Hello Friends,  It’s Color Week over at Just Us Girls and I am in love with this color combo that Lisa has chosen. I decided to CASE myself this week and make a card that is similar to a couple I had done years ago.  I have a very large variety of products here, so if you have any questions let me know.  Hubby and I are off to Naples for the weekend. He is going to go golfing and I am going to spend the day with my birthday sister. I am so looking forward to it!  Going to make this short and sweet, as I need to go and pack.  Happy Creating….and I hope to see you at JUGS!  Nanc’

Love From Me Digi

mojo483Hello Friends,  I have been eyeing this sketch over at Mojo Monday and  finally found sometime to play along.  In addition, Julee Tilman from Verve has so graciously once again created a FREE digi set for us to use! You can find it HERE!  It’s till available for a few more days, so you must go and get it before it’s to late!  She also has a Love From Me challenge and giveaway going on with her digi set over at the Verve BlogI fell in love with the sentiment that I used on both of my cards instantly! It made a perfect Valentine for my hubby, since he is indeed my best friend.  I just have to decide which one I am going to give to him, probably the one with the paintbrush.  I combined her free set with some Stampin Up paper and oval and circle stitched dies, a MFT stitched heart die and scalloped border die, my favorite Verve heart border die, and two stamp sets called Positive Strokes and I Heart Art from Paper Smooches.  I cut two heart border dies one back and one white for the second card and glued back in the white hearts so as not to see all the paper and such behind the openings. I paper pieced the paintbrush.

I sure hope you will swing on by the blogs that I have linked up for you and take advantage of Julee’s kindness. Thanks so very much Julee, I will be using the digi again soon!  Take care, Nanc’

You Touched My Heart

dsc_0072

screen-shot-2017-01-07-at-6-58-34-pmHello Friends,  Vicki is hosting over at Just Us Girls and she has a perfect Trend for us this week.  Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner it was perfect time to incorporate Hearts on our cards and or projects.  I just love the look of Inlay Die-cutting, so that is what I decided to do with this challenge. The paper is from SU, the Hearts are from MFT and the sentiment is from Verve. I think I will definitely be doing this again. It’s almost like I made my own cover plate.

Have a fabulous day and you MUST come by and see what the team and our Guest Michelle have done! Take care, Nanc’
