Love and Prayers

Hello, Today since the weather is cold and dreary I decided to make a card for the Festive Friday Challenge, plus I was in the need of a Sympathy card. I decided that my Gina K Designs-Little Love Layering Bundle would do the trick. I chose Florals, Green, and Blue for my pick 3.

Card Details: Gina K Designs- Little Love Layering Stencil Bundle, Oxide Inks, and dimensionals.

I hope whatever the weather is where you live or how you decide to spend your day, I hope it’s a good one. For those of you that I know that are hurting right now, just know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Take care, Nanc’

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’

Happy Birthday

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls Vicki is our hostess for Trend Week and she wants us to Ink or Spray our backgrounds. I could have easily got out some of my neglected Dylusions sprays that I thought I had to have at the time and barely use, but I am sure it’s no surprise that I decided to make an inked background instead. I also used a bit of Vicki Boutin-Texture Paste to make some shiny seafoam. A very quick and easy card to put together.

Card Details: Background was made with Oxide Inks. The Flip Flops are from Impression Obsession. The shiny sea foam was made with Texture Paste. The greeting is from Close to My Heart. The tiny hearts are from a punch.

Hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and play along!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Welcome ladies! We are so happy to have you both!

As for my cards for today! I have chosen the word Beverage for Word Week this week and I think it is going to be a fun one! I had so much fun with the wine card, I decided to get out my new dies from Tim Holtz and make a beer card too.

I am also playing along with Time Out Challenges where the word is New. The stencil and beer mug is new to me.

Card Details: The stencil is brand new to me and from Heffy Doddle, the wine bottle and glasses are from Paper Roses. The greetings are from MFT. The beer die is from Tim Holtz.

Make a Scene

Hello, The card I am sharing today is for a couple of challenges. First, it’s for the month-long challenge at Christmas Craft Creations. The theme this month is Make a Scene. I stumbled upon this great site a couple of months ago.

I am also linking up with the fun over at Happy Little Stampers, Stencil Challenge where it’s Anything Goes. As you will see with the pics below I made my own stencils for this card.

Card Details: I hope the above photos are self-explanatory. This is a design I have been thinking about and messing with for a little while. For my final card, I purposely left the white between the sand and the water to mimic sea foam. The added white lines should have been a bit more random, they were suggested by a dear friend, but poorly executed. The greeting is from Flora and Fauna. The Santa/sleigh is a stamp from Kitchen Sink Stamps. Of course, I used Distress Oxide Inks. The negative tree stencil is something I made from my old school when I was working and luckily found in my very large box of stencils. I do miss having access to fabulous large Sizzix dies.

I hope you are doing well during this Holiday Season. Take care and happy crafting! Nanc’

Warm Christmas Wishes

Hello, I hope you are doing well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s Sketch Week and I absolutely adore the sketch that Anne Marie has chosen for us! I had the Santa and Palm Tree sitting on my desk already colored, and then an idea popped into my head. Why not mask off the base cardstock and make three beach scenes. So I did! I think it turned out quite well and I will definitely be making more of these in the future.

You know me and like to combine challenges, so I am also going to be playing along once again with the Global Design Project where their theme is Christmas and Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge-Make a Scene.

Card Details: Spellbinders Deckled Edge dies to make my stencils, Santa and the Palm Tree are from separate sets but are both Sunny Studios. I used both Copics and Prismas as my medium and Oxide ink for the background.

Birthday- Leaves

Hello, Instead of apologizing yet again for using my favorite dies and or stamps, I am just going to get right to it as there is no point anymore! LOL

It is Tic Tac Toe week at The Paper Players and I have chosen the last row of Diecuts, Leaves, and Embellishments. I made a card using these colors about a week or so ago and I loved it so much I decided to make another for this challenge. I have the other card for you down below in case you missed it.

Card Details: Leaves are all from SU and the set is retired and called Seasonal Layers. The greeting is also SU. The added copper sprigs are also SU and from the Forever Fern set. The background die is a favorite of mine and from Sunny Studio. I used Oxide inks to do my blending on white cardstock after stamping the image and making a stencil. I punched out some copper dots for my embellishments. I love how it turned out!

CAS Birthday Card

Hello, Today it is time for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday and Colleen has asked us to make a Sunset on our Birthday card. Such a perfect topping for this Florida girl! Remember out topping is optional, any birthday card will do. This is one of the cards I usually mass produce.

Card Details: I made the background with Oxide Inks and a stencil I made with acetate. The palm tree stamp is from Impression Obsession.

Now, come by and check out all the different ways the Design Team and our Guest Carol interpreted sunsets!

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’
