Rainbow!

Hi,  Hope you are having a great day! Over at Seize the Birthday our Topping for the next two weeks is rainbow. I really enjoyed making my rainbow background on this card.  Those Oxide inks are so much fun to play with!  The stencil I used is from SU, the Wishes is from Poppy Stamps and the Birthday is from Neat and Tangled, and last but not least those Wonky Rectangles are from MFT.   I hope you will consider joining my team and I over at STB for this fun challenge!  Their cards are all FABULOUS too! Seriously they are!!! You must check them out!

Before I go I would like to thank Trina for being such a Wonderful Surprise Party Guest the past two months!  Trina, I am a huge fan of your work and we hope you will continue to join us from time to time.

Take care, Nanc’

Monochrome at The Flower Challenge

Hello,  Hope your day is going well!  Today’s card all started with the negative piece of my very last card I posted.  I also wanted to join in this months The Flower Challenge where the theme is Monochrome.  It’s always fun and a bit challenging to me to make a card in basically all one color, but when it’s pink, it makes it all that much easier. LOL I found this glittery pink heart in a bit box on my desk and I knew it was going to be the perfect added touch.  I made the banner myself with a left over piece of scrap too. How many bit boxes do you have in your craft room? I have several, and vow to organize them by summers end…I can’t throw anything away.

A few card Details:  SU Paper that was colored with Oxide Inks, MFT Stitched Flowers, Verve sentiment and U die.

I hope you find sometime to get creative! Nanc’

You are Unforgettable…

I have another card today for the Daily Marker 30 day Challenge and for this great color combo over at the Color Throwdown.  I really enjoy playing with my Oxide Inks and today’s card is a mix of a little colored pencil with background blending. These MFT elephants just make me smile.  This is the first time I am happy with the results of adding the water droplets to my background. Usually they are so clumpy and look so forced.

I hope you are having a wonderful day! All my stamps and dies are from MFT.  Take care, Nanc’

Stencils!

Hello, Hope your weekend is off to a great start! It’s time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls. Angie has asked us this week to use stencils on our card and or project! Easy huh! Who doesn’t have a pile of stencils laying around? The stencil I chose for my card is the heart from Heidi Swapp. This card was made for my Hubster!  He has been very patient with me over the past several months, as I have not been well, and I don’t know what I would do without him. He is a keeper for sure! I do not own this adorable otter from MFT, but when my good friend and fellow STB DT member Barb was down in Florida this past winter, she let me ink up this adorable set and take some images back home with me.  Thanks Barbara!!!  I used my oxide inks for the background, and a mixture of Copic and Prisma Colored pencils for the cute little otter. I am not quite sure how I feel about the clear Nuvo drops…I think I got carried away!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and our fabulous guest Patti Kehl this week, who knows you might be chosen as our next Chic of the Week! Happy crafting, Nanc’

Vibrant Colors!

We have a fun topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is Vibrant Colors and as soon as I got this new Chameleon Stamp Set from Your Next Stamp from my local stamp store, I put the other card I had planned on posting to the side and decided to make a new one. After all, I had a few hours till bed and the post didn’t go live till tomorrow. Besides, I’ve got myself another sinus infection and I have absolutely no voice, so I thought a little stamping might cheer me up.

Here is a pic of the Oxide Inks I used. The stencil is from Heidi Swapp and the Wonky Rectangles is from MFT.  You must hop on over to the Seize the Birthday blog and check out the team’s cards along with our guest designer Kims, they are all so vibrant and fabulous! Nanc’

BTW….I have been messing with my camera’s settings and I am not succeeding.  The card is even more vibrant in person.

Take care!

Sending Smiles…

Hello,  It’s Color week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has a great trio of colors to get your mojo flowing. This card is similar to one I posted a few months back. The moment I saw the colors she had chosen, I knew I wanted to try my hand again at beach scene, so that is what I did. I did a bit better job of blending my Oxide inks this time around.  I used post it notes to mask off for this card. The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the birds are a die from Impression Obsession.

I hope to see you in our gallery at JUGS! If you don’t have time to make a card at least come by and check out the cards from my teammates and our Guest Cathymac this week.  Have a productive day! Nanc’

Galaxy or Night Sky

Today over at Just Us Girls we have a new challenge starting and the Trend Sue has chosen for us is to make a Galaxy Background or Night Sky.  What a fun idea! This was something I had not done a lot of, so I enjoyed pushing my creativity.  Thanks Sue!!

When putting this card together I had some complications along the way but I do believe they turned out to work in my favor. I love to do emboss resist and this is where my card began. The inspiration behind my card you can find HERE.  The only thing I wish I would have managed to have done differently is make the center of my moon mostly white.  That is a challenge for me, as I tend to be a heavy handed ink blender. As much as I love the Oxide Inks I am still struggling with them. The other thing that worked out well is, I couldn’t find my bottle of white paint so I decided to try Gesso for my stenciled stars.  It worked, as the stars became more muted and I think it looks awesome that way. Last, I had to tilt my panel as my sentiment didn’t stamp straight. LOL

The stamps are a miss match of this and that picked up at Local Stamping stores.

Hope you will consider trying your hand at a Night or Galaxy background as well and join us over at JUGS!  Nanc’

Trend Week at JUGS!

Hello Friends, It’s post wedding and I am still on cloud nine!  Things went perfectly and I couldn’t be happier. One day soon I will share some pics with you here! Now onto the real reason you stopped by.  It’s Trend Week over at Just Us Girls and Lisa has asked us to try some Silhouette Stamping. Not sure my card is exactly what she had in mind now that I look at my fellow design teams cards but hopefully it will do.

The background was made with my Oxide Inks and the stamp is something I picked up at Michaels …I do believe. The sentiment is my go to from Verve along with the banners. The buttons are from MFT.

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the other cards by my talented teammates and our guest Trina.  Take care, Nanc’

A Birdy Birthday!

Hello Friends,  My life is back to somewhat “normal” and I am sure happy about that! If I never see another storm like Irma…. it will be way too soon!  However, we surely dodged a major bullet this time around and for that I am forever grateful! My heart goes out to all that have been impacted by all the horrific storms, and fires over these past few months around the world.  It sure makes me appreciate the small inconvenience of no power and no AC over the last 9 days. Onto a happier subject!  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Photo Week and as soon as I saw the pic Ina picked out, I knew what stamp set I was going to use.  It’s from Darcie’s.com.  Cutting out a half circle with a die was rather tricky. Here is the card that inspired me! The background was made with Oxide inks and the bird was colored with Colored Pencil.

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Linda has done!  Hope to see you in our gallery too! Hugs, Nanc’

Feel Better Soon!

Hello Friends,  It’s Photo Week at Just Us Girls and I only had a bit of time to whip something up for this challenge.  I didn’t have any watermelon stamps or card stock so I decided to base my card on the colors and clouds instead.  I can’t say I love it, but we can’t love them all can we? I wanted a soft background to mimic the sky in the photo and the green is the rind of the watermelon.  I then decided to throw some water on the Oxide inks as well.  I think I got a little heavy with my drops. LOL

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see what my teammates and guest Aileen have done! We would love to have you!  Nanc’

Supplies: Sun and Clouds-Lawn Fawn, Stitched label-MFT, Sentiment-SU, and Oxide Inks
