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

Splatter at STB!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a great day so far! I had such a great time making this card with some of my favorite stamp sets.  I had the PI girl colored with colored pencil for quite sometime and I am so glad I waited till after I got my Oxide Inks to put the card together. My new inks matched perfectly with the colors I had chosen to color her with.  Love when that happens…don’t you?  This card is for our challenge over at Seize the Birthday for the next two weeks.  The topping I chose this time around is Splatter! It’s such a fun technique that generally gives such great results! I feel like it kicks up the card a notch or two. Of course after I made my splats, I remembered I had a punch that might be fun to use as well and then that is how the paint brush came to be.  The perfectly uniformed round spots were made from a stamp from Gina K.

I think I rambled long enough! Hope you will consider joining the team and I at Seize the Birthday…we would love to have you! Nanc’
