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’

Supplies: Oxide inks,  MFT Stitched rectangles, stitched banners and PI-, Sentiment is Verve, Paintbrush is Paper Smooches, circles-Gna K.

Life is Meant to Be Enjoyed…

Hello Friends,  I took sometime a few days ago and took a break from punching out boocoose wedding pieces and made this card for the challenge over at Simon Says Monday Challenge.  Their challenge theme was Take a Vacation. I got out the perfect stamp set from MFT-Fun in the Sun….. which most definitely screams vacation to me. I wanted to practice my Copic coloring but I chickened out as I am not very good at it, and went with my faithful Prisma Colored pencils.  I also played with my new Oxide Inks which I adore!  I have used them a lot lately and those projects are forth coming.  I can’t take credit for this adorable layout as I cased a card that you will find HERE!

I hope you are having a terrific day! 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!

screen-shot-2017-01-07-at-6-54-33-pmHello Friends,  It’s the weekend….Woohooooo! That also means it’s time for a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  The Word we have for you this week is Dogs!  I only have a few dog stamps and this is one of my all time favorites. It’s from Crafter’s Companion.  I again colored him with my Prisma Colored Pencils and decided to leave it as a one layer card. I added the patch of grass for him to balance on.  The sentiment is from MFT.

So break out those puppy dogs and come on over to Just Us Girls and join us! While you are there you can help me in welcoming our new Guest Designer Michele Greenwood.  Welcome Michelle…we are glad to have you!   Happy Crafting, Nanc’

Try a Little Felt

dsc_0011

STB ToppingsHello Friends,  We have a fun Topping option for the next two weeks over at Seize the Birthday!  Out topping is to add felt to your card and or project.  This was a first time I have ever cut felt with a die cut before and I am in love with how well it worked with my MFT dies and my Sizzix machine.  I have had this felt in my cabinet for years, (NBUS) and thrilled that I didn’t have to run out and get any.  Cause you know…you run to the craft store for one thing and you come out with TEN! LOL  Just look at those balloons …aren’t they super cute?  As I warned you, I can’t get over my crush on these NEW Adorable Elephants from MFT.  Swoon!  This little guy was again colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils.  The background heart cover plate and the grass is also MFT.  The sentiment is part of the elephant stamp set as well. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders and the Stitched circle is SU.

I hope you will consider coming on over to Seize the Birthday to see what my fantastic teammates and Guest have done with their felt, and while you are there you will have a go at it yourself!

Dashes and or Doodling

dsc_0009

STB ToppingsHello Friends,  It’t been a fast week for me!  It’s already Thursday and time for our next Topping at Seize the Birthday!  What we have going on over there is to add Dashes and or Doodling to your card and or project.  I think our players are going to enjoy this topping…I know I sure did.  I took the same Altenew stamp set (Botanical Garden) that I still had sitting out in my studio and went to work.  I think the added dash lines around the flowers and leaves really made it look totally different!  I don’t think my coloring turned out as well this time as last time though.  I tend to struggle with blending the color red.  Now, you may ask …why I decided to use the color Kraft for my leaves.  I got mixed up and started this card for a different challenge and then remembered I was making it for STB….please tell me you have done this at least once?  I tend to do it often. LOL  So many challenges…so little time! I had some pencil marks I couldn’t get off of the white card stock so I decided to add the dots to hide some of them and carried it down to the sentiment too.  I think it turned out rather fun!  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Please come over to STB and see what my team and our Surprise Party guest Rahmat have done and while your there I hope you get inspired to join us!! Nanc’

All Over Stamping

dsc_0555

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-12-52-38-pmHello Friends,  We have a great challenge for you over at Just Us Girls!  Bobby has asked us to use all over Stamping on our card and or project! One of the things I am hoping to do more of in 2017 is coloring.  I do enjoy it immensely! So when I saw this upcoming challenge, I knew for sure that I was going to get out my Altenew Stamps (Botanical Garden) and my Prisma colored pencils and get to work. I am thrilled with how this came together, I love coloring on kraft card stock! I tried to get the best photo possible.  The Hugs die is from Lawn Fawn and cut from gold paper.  I didn’t want to take away from the background to much.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the rest of the team and our guest Shawna has done!  Thanks so much for your visits…they make me smile! Nanc’

A New Beginning

dsc_0547

 

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-12-49-53-pmHello Friends,  We are ready to get things rolling over at Just Us Girls and Ina has selected the perfect word for us this week.  The word is NEW!  You may interpret that however you wish!  I have a good friend that has started a new job so I made my card with her in mind.  I have made a few New Year’s resolutions, like most of the world, but two of my craft related ones are…. to make more Clean and Simple cards and to work on my coloring skills.  This card is CAS and was colored with my Prisma Colored pencils, so I am off to a pretty good start.  I did have to make my sentiment on my computer though. I just love my new Stitched Mini Scalloped rectangles that I got on my trip to MFT, I know already they will be used a bunch! The stamp was something that was given to me and was made by the Rubber stampede.  Isn’t it lovely?

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see how my team and our New Guest Shawna Standish has interpreted the word NEW!

ModSquadLogoI am also linking my card up over at the Mod Squad where my friend Judy is hosting and has asked for Anything but Christmas.

 

Take care, Nanc’

Paper Players Color Challenge

dsc_0355

pp321Hello Friends,  As soon as I saw this color combo over at The Paper Players this week I knew I had to find sometime to play along. I managed to squeeze in sometime on Sunday night. At first glance at these colors, your mind might go directly to Christmas, I on the other hand needed a thinking of you card for someone special so I pulled out one of my ALL time FAVORITE stamps (from Northwood Stamp Company) and started coloring. I used both Copics and Prisma Colored pencils to color this awesome stamp.  I had to mix both mediums as my amount of Copics is really limited (10), plus I am still a newbie and need a lot more practice. I love the effect of cutting out a shaped panel on a very large stamp…I think it really kicks it up a notch.

Hope you have a terrific day and I will be back on Thursday with STB!  Hugs,  Nanc’

Summer!

DSC_0064

Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 6.06.10 PMHello Friends, We are in the middle of Summer for sure here in Florida as the temps creep high into the 90’s and I so wish I had a pool to jump into. So since I don’t have a pool in my backyard, I made this card in hopes to help me cool down a bit! Also, it just so happens that over at Just Us Girls this week our word is Summer!  The girls and our new Guest Designer Carol Mayne (WELCOME CAROL) have done a fantastic job!  This little card came together quite nicely and quick! The waves were made with my CM cutting system that I still adore to this day!  The sun is a die from Lawn Fawn that I added a face to, the penguin is something I have had forever and I colored him with Prisma pencils, the sentiment is from Stampin up and I jazzed it up a bit with some dashes. Please come on over and check us out and while you’re there consider joining us, heck you may even be chosen as our next Chic of the Week.   Take care and happy creating,  Nanc’
