Anything Goes Birthday @ STB!

Hello Everyone, Hope you are having a good week! The card I have for you today is for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Seize the Birthday! I have used many different companies on this card. Verve- leaves, Hero Arts-sentiment, MFT-banner tags, Altenew-Florals.   Please pay no attention to that horizontal faint line across my card.  I thought it would be wise to make sure the watercolored paper would adhere well to the card base after I put my adhesive on it, so I ran it through my Cuttlebug for added pressure. I read or heard that tip somewhere.  WRONG! BAD IDEA! Thought maybe some Nuvo drops would draw the eye away. LOL  The flowers were heat embossed and watercolored.

Before I go I must say farewell to Kim our Surprise Party Guest. It was an absolute delight having you with us these past two months Kim and PLEASE don’t be a stranger in our gallery, as your cards are simply awesome!

Have a fabulous day and I sure hope you will come on over to STB and join us! Nanc’

Prominently Purple!

Hello Friends,  Have we got a great challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. Carol has picked the color Purple for our Color Week.

I Will Always Be Here For You!

Hello friends,  It’s Saturday and time for our next Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  For those of you that have been following my blog for quite sometime, you are going to think I have seen this card before, well rest assure you aren’t crazy. However, you haven’t seen THIS card before, but you have seen me do this technique and layout a time or three! It is one of my all time favorite cards so why not case myself…..right?? When I saw our Trend over at JUGS was black and white stripes this is the first thing that came to mind. I hope it’s okay that I added the grey too.

The butterfly is from Savvy and the sentiment (in the Adorable Elephants set) and the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles are from the MFT.

Please come by Just Us Girls and share your Black and White stripe creations with us and check out my fabulous team and guest Karren’s creations.  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!

Oh Baby!

Hello,  Today’s card is for the latest Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I so enjoy playing along over there. I have chosen the center row of Baby, Punch and Ribbon.  This type of baby card is something that I have made many times in the past, but it’s always fun to do.  However, I had a request to make one with a Minnie Mouse on the bib ( which I have not done before) and that is where my punch comes in for Minnie’s black ears. The sentiment is from Verve and I thought we needed to lighten up all the black with some Nuvo Drops. The rest of the dies are either Spellbinders, MFT or Stampin Up. I just adore any type of stitched dies.

I hope you have a wonderful day! My son and Daughter in law are coming into town for a quick visit…so I am pretty happy about that!  Nanc’

BOLD!

Hello Everyone,  Today over at Just Us Girls our Word is BOLD!  The card I have for you today is a card I made for Christmas last year that I loved, but never posted.  I thought the bold poinsettia would work perfectly! The die is from Heartfelt creations, the EF is ???  and the sentiment is from Verve. Some gold stickles and I was done. Very quick card!  I also curled the petals and leaves to give it more of a realistic vibe.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and help me welcome our newest Guest Designer Karren from Stamping Stuff.  Karren is such a terrific card maker that I have been admiring for years and I am certain you will recognize her blog as soon as you get there.  Karen we are so very happy to have you with us this month!

While you are over at JUGS, check out the rest of the team’s cards and show us how you interpret BOLD!

Take care, Nanc’

Birds of a Feather….

Hello Everyone, It’s Thursday and time for the latest topping over at Seize the Birthday.  Our topping is BIRDS! I haven’t had this adorable set from Stampin Up for too terribly long and I just adore it. I paired it with this cute little stitched die from MFT, with my trusty over used but favorite Happy Birthday stamp from Verve.  That stamp never leaves my desk.

I hope you are enjoying your week as much as I am.  Today is our Anniversary and we are packing up the bikes for a day trip.

Hope to see you in our gallery at STB! Nanc’

JUGS and the Twofer Challenge

Hello Everyone,  I have to say that today is the beginning of our Spring Break!  Woohoooo!  I sure hope this week drags on and on and I manage to accomplish most or all of the incredible long lists of chores and fun activities that I have planned.  Wish me Luck!   Are you all familiar with the Twofer Card Challenge that the incredibly funny and kind Darnell started recently?  Well, I have been eyeing it since its inception, and I decided to incorporate that challenge with my weekly Just Us Girls challenge this week. The Twofer Challenge ends today I do believe, so nothing like getting down to the wire.

The word for the Twofer challenge is Blossom and the Challenge we have for you at JUGS is a Photo challenge.  The picture had a lot to do with Spring flowers and Easter so that is where my inspiration headed this week. I got out my SU Blossom Petals Punch and made my first Floral card.  Then I let my fingers do the walking over at Pinterest for a bunny card to inspire me and I used the same Blossom punch for his ears.  I am not sure anyone has ever used a punch before over at the Twofer challenge, so I hope it’s allowed. Here is the card that inspired me for the bunny and the flower card was my own design.  For the flower-I used the SU Blossom Petals Punch, some MFT for the leaves and grass, SU circle dies for the center of the flower, and the stem was made with a hill die from Lawn Fawn.  For the bunny- I used an MFT stitched heart, My SU Blossom Petals punch, a MS border punch and my Creative memories circle cutter to get the perfect size circles. The sentiment is from Verve. Chalk for his cheeks, a white and black pen and some rhinestones.

Here is a pic of the SU blossom punch!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you come on over to JUGS and check out the rest of the DT’s cards.

ACK!!!!!!  I didn’t take my photos together and the Bunny card has already been sold! I hope it’s okay that I made a collage instead!  I will do better next time, I promise!  Nanc’

Color Week at JUGS!

Hello Friends,  I am your hostess once again over at Just Us Girls and I just LOVE Color challenges.  In fact, if I didn’t have a day job I think I would start a Color challenge myself.  Maybe someday that will happen…we shall see!  In the meantime, I hope you will consider bopping on over to JUGS and joining us this week.  I really like the color combo and I hope you do too.

My card was really easy to put together.  I used some SU flowers and sentiment and some of my favorite die leaves from Verve.

Come on over and check out what the team has done with this great color combo and our Guest Stef!

See you at Just Us Girls, Nanc’

Teal and White at STB!

Hello Friends,  We have a great color combo this time over at Seize the Birthday! Teal is one of my all time favorite colors and I just love the look of it paired with white as you can see above.  It’s just so clean and fresh looking, don’t ya think?

Here are a few details of what I used to make my card. Sentiment and leaves are from Verve, EF and butterfly is SU, the scalloped rectangles are from MFT. Some black Nuvo drops and glossy accents on the butterfly and I was done.

Please come on over to STB and check out what the rest of the team and our Surprise Party Guest Kim have done.  Some serious eye candy there! Nanc’
