Nautical

Hello, We are back again over at Seize the Birthday and we have a fun challenge for you to get creative with. Lindsey has chosen Nautical as our topping. I was so happy when I saw this topping coming up as I adore making Nautical themed cards.

We also have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us for the next two months at STB. Welcome Melanie Hungerford! We are so happy to have you designing alongside us!

Remember over at Seize the Birthday our topping is optional and you can always go the direction of justing making a birthday card!

Card Details: I borrowed this fun background stamp and sentiments from a friend and it’s from Avery Elle. Thanks Carol. I masked off the center to leave an oval. Then I cut out my anchor on my Cameo. Last, I added the twine and some Honey Bee Stamps Dew drops.

Hope to see you over at STB! Take care, Nanc’

Congratulations… on your Retirement

Hello, as you can see I found another nautically inspired challenge site to play along with this week. This card is for Time Out Challenges. I found the perfect DP-by Kaiser Craft to use along with my SU-Nautical stamp set to complete it.  This was so quick, but I like the way it came together.  The card is going to a person that in fact sails, so hopefully he will love it and get a kick out of my sailor’s knot.

Thanks for your visits…they are so appreciated.

All Things Nautical

Hi, Over at Addicted to Stamps and More they have a nautical picture for us to be inspired by.  I love making nautical cards, so I knew right away I would be playing along. This card was easy and fun to do.

Card Details: All products are SU except for the scalloped die which is Spellbinders.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Nautical Wine Bottle Tag

DSC_0281

Hello Friends, Merry Christmas Eve day!  The Leppek family has been invited over to our son’s girlfriends house tonight for Christmas Eve Dinner.  It’s a first for us, so wish us luck.  Hubby has strict orders to behave himself…LOL  I am taking a plate of handmade goodies with us, but wanted to also take a bottle of wine.  I knew I needed to dress up the bottle somehow,  so I let Pinterest help me out.  I can’t take any credit for the Santa tag idea, the only idea that was mine was to make it a Nautical theme!  The Montalvos are big- time boat lovers and own their own 65 foot sailboat, so I think this just might do the trick!  I love the way it turned out!

ModSquadLogoI am going to link this tag up at the Mod Squad where they have an Anything Goes challenge going on!

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  I truly appreciate each and everyone of you!  You make this hobby of mine so rewarding in so many different ways!

Take care,   Nanc’

Colour Me- Set of Thank You Cards

DSC_0289

Hello Friends,

I saw the great colors over at Colour Me this week and I wanted to take sometime to join them. My hubby has been in the need of some thank you cards for school and I decided to make them masculine.  The one above I am entering over there and the rest I am just posting for you to take a peek at.  I have a very hard time with mass producing a card and it is something I need to work on.  As you can tell each one is a tad different in someways then the others while still using the same general color palette.  Stamps are mainly SU The Open Sea with some Verve Sentiments thrown in there too.  Love me some Verve sentiments.

Some of the photos are a tad blurry…but I was short on time to re-take them.

Here are the rest of them!
