Cheers it’s your birthday

Hello, Today starts a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. I am the hostess and I have a very easy Topping for all of you, if you chose to hop on over and play along, we would love to have you!

Card Details: It’s your birthday is from Verve, the Bottle and glasses are from Paper Roses, the Cheers die is from Spellbinders-Outlined Sentiments. As you can probably tell I did quite a bit of ink blending on this card. HERE is the tag that totally sparked my inspiration for this card.

Hope you have a wonderful day and when you read this that Hurricane Ian is sparing us with minimal damage. Take care and be well, Nanc’

A Tweet Hello

Hello, Today I am playing with the ladies over at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I liked Vicky’s board and I have chosen the diagonal row of Flowers, Any Sentiments, and Foliage.

Card Details: The bird and sentiment is an oldie but goodie called A Tweet Hello from MFT. The flowers are from Pink and Main. The stenciled background is from Miss Ink Stamps and called-Leafy Green. The foliage dies are from SU in the old Tropical Thinlits set. I did some ink blending and Copic coloring. This card layout was found on Pinterest but this morning I can not find it amongst the bazillion pins I have saved.

I hope you have a wonderfully creative weekend, looks like I may be preparing for a hurricane all by myself. What are the chances that this happens when hubby is away in Michigan? Take care, Nanc’

BOO

Hello, I am back today with an array of Halloween cards using a mix of products. I posted a card using the cute Pink and Main set called Hello Bootiful about a week ago, but this time I paired it with the new Candy Corn Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I am so excited about this product as it’s so much fun to use with fun results.

Here is a close up.

I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketch challenge for the card above. However, I have two more cards using the sets using a circle instead. I love the way they all turned out!

I am linking up card #2 over at Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge and card #3 over at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge.

Card Details: Stamps are from Pink and Main-Hello Bootiful. The stencil is from Pretty Pink Posh. Card #1 the background is just Oxide inks. Card #2. I used some clear Nuvo drops and glitter for the top of my candy corn. Card #3 actually has texture paste for the top of the candy corn but when I decided to use some glitter it kinda defeated the purpose and you can’t even see the paste. I used Prismas and Copics to color. I made a stencil out of a deckled edge rectangle die and of course a circle too. The rounded scalloped edge on card #2 and 3 is from MFT. I have dimensionals under my sentiments. I used orange glitter paper for my dots.

I so enjoy your visit and thanks so much for coming by! Nanc’

With Sympathy

Hello, It’s Saturday and it’s time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls where yours truly is the hostess this time. I have chosen a fall picture for your inspiration. I used a bit of this and that to achieve the look I was going for. The Design Team and our Guest Julie did a wonderful job with this challenge. Speaking of Julie, today is her last post with us as our guest. Julie, it’s been an absolute pleasure having you with us.

Card Details: If you have any specific questions let me know. I did a lot of stencil work and ink blending from dies and the smaller leaves are stamps from the same set. It is a retired set called Colorful Seasons and the coordinating die set is called Seasonal Layers. The Perfect Plaid Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps.

I hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and play along with us. We would love to have you. Nanc’

You make me Smile

Hello, I am back today with a CAS card for the latest challenge over at The Paper Players. If you have been a follower of my blog for some time you know that these leaves from Stampin Up are a favorite of mine and a staple this time of year. They are old, so sadly no longer available.

Card Details: First, I made a stencil of the leaf itself and inked it up with three fall colors of Oxide Inks. Then I took the die and cut them out. Next, I used the detailed die and cut it out using gold glitter paper. I think the mix of inks and glitter looks amazing together. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and is from Stampin Up (retired) as well. I think the final gold dots tied it all together.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get to do something today that brings you JOY! Nanc’

Ghostly Greetings

Hello, I have a fun large slimline card for you today using some new to-me products that I just picked up a few days ago from the Pink and Main store. I love that they have a storefront that is just 20 minutes from my house. It’s quite dangerous as it is packed with so many cute products to choose from. If you want to check out the products I have used for this card, I have linked them up for you below.

Since these products are brand new to me, I am linking up with Darnell over at NBUS.

Card Details: Pink and Main-Hello Bootiful and Square Frame Dies. I used my MFT cloud stencil and Oxide Inks to make the sky behind each image. I colored my images with Copics. I also took some glitter paper and made a thin strip across the bottom of each of the black square frames. I used the same paper for stars and dots. I have dimensionals under all four of my sentiments. I took a black sharpie and put a fine line around my purple polka-dotted paper before adhering it to the orange paper.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a wonderfully creative day, Nanc’

Food, Glorious Food

Hello, Today it’s time for our next challenge over at Seize the Birthday. The topping is Food, Glorious Food which happened to be selected by former DT member, Lindsey. As I am typing my post I am thinking about my beautiful friend and how remarkable she was. She was always a glass-half full type of gal and showed humor even up till the end. I could always count on her to make me smile and or burst into laughter from a text message. She would want me to be happy so that is what I am going to do today, for her.

I dare you to read this topping without singing…I certainly can’t!

I made two cards for this challenge.

Card Details: MFT-Birthday Cake die, the sentiments are from Papertrey ink. I used some clear Nuvo drops to make my icing shine. I also took my paper piercer and etched lines in the mirrored paper on the cake stand, and I love the way it looks.

You have to come over to Seize the Birthday and check out my fabulous team’s cards along with Asa our guest. Everyone did such a great job and they are all so different.

I hope however you choose to spend your day, you choose to be happy too. Nanc’

Happy Birthday

Hello, I hope you are having a great day. I have a Birthday card today showcasing one of Spellbinder’s newest dies called Enchanted Garden in the Winter Tales Collection. The collection is full of beautiful dies. The flowers and leaves that I have used are so whimsical and fun to put together and I was very pleased when Yana offered to send me these specific products to play with. The hardest part was figuring out what colors I wanted to use. I have a few more cards I will be sharing at a later date, so stayed tuned!

If you want to see the entire collection plus the items I used to make this card, I have affiliate links below.

Winter Tales Collection

Enchanted Garden

Many Birthdays

Truckin Through the Seasons

Spellbinders 6

Here is a close-up so you can see the background and the flowers a little bit better.

Card Details: First, I cut some strips of paper to make my white shiplap background on the base of my card. I just love doing this on a card. Next, I cut out a wreath shape using a circle die to make my wreath base. Then, I took the tree die from Spellbinders-Truckin Through the Seasons and layered the pine needles to form my wreath. Next, it was time to add the flowers and leaves that I already had made. Then, it was time to heat emboss a sentiment in silver using a stamp in the Spellbinders-Many Birthdays set onto an oval die. The sentiment was popped up with some foam tape. I added some silver glittered dots which are actually holly from the Spellbinders-Noel set. I have that small die on my desk 24/7 as I use it so often.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share some fun new products with you! I hope you have a wonderfully creative day, Nanc’

Greetings from the Couch

Hello, I hope you are off to a great start this week. The days are certainly flying by, aren’t they? I am in no way ready for the Holiday Season. How about you? I think it’s coming even if we aren’t ready!

Today’s card is using some of my favorite sets from MFT and it just so happens that MFT has 10% off their entire site from the 13th-16th including their new release. So now is your chance! Lucky for me when I got my Couch kit it included all the pieces to make some really great cards and what a great value it was. If you have never purchased one of their kits I highly recommend them. However, this kit is no longer available but you can still pick and choose the stamp and or die sets that you want to make this card. You will just have to hunt around a bit. I have linked up the scene-building area for you on their website to help you.

I am linking up this card with Tic Tac Toe using the diagonal row of Any Shape, Free, and Sentiment. Also over at Happy Little Stampers for Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: All products are from MFT including the brick stencil background. I got a little heavy-handed when I inked it up with my Oxide ink. I was hoping the furniture would hide most of the imperfections. The DSP also is from MFT.

Thanks for popping by! Take care and happy crafting! Nanc’

Happy B’Day

Hello, I am back today with a Birthday card that uses some new to-me Stamp sets from MFT. I also designed my card for the great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and will be linking up with Darnell as well over at NBUS! I have the two stamp sets noted at the bottom of the post that are NEW to me.

This card is a CASE of the fabulous Tiffany from Ink Therapy Designs. She made a slimline card using this adorable turtle set, but I decided to try it with a traditional A2 size. I have linked up her card for you above. Everything she makes is incredible! You should go pay her a visit.

Card Details: MFT (NEW)-Stamp is called Turtley Awesome, the small B’day greeting is from the Birthday Buddies set. The Cute clouds which are my favorite are also MFT. The only things on this card that are not MFT is the word Happy in the background and the word Birthday they both are from Simon Says Stamps. Birthday is in the Thoughtful Messages set, and Happy (NEW) is from their Slimline Greetings set. I used Copics and a bit of Prisma Colored Pencils. The tiny stars are from a confetti bag of sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderfully creative day, Nanc’
