I Heard you were…

Hello, It is the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues! Sheri has chosen a color combo that I really, really love…Aqua and Black. I just adore these dragons from MFT, don’t you? A dear friend of mine’s hubby was having some heart issues and I made this especially for him. Over at Color Hues we have the fabulous Trina Pham joining us as our guest!

Here is a close up of my cute dragon.

Card Details: Dragon, sentiment, and both types of clouds are MFT. The stars are dies also and from Your Next Stamp. I used both Copics and Prismas as my medium.

There is no shortage of inspiration over at Color Hues by the Design Team and Trina, come be inspired! Nanc’

Flip Flop Birthday

Hello, We have the brightest and most beautiful Color Challenge starting today at The Paper Players! Claire is our fabulous hostess and she was so colorful in her selection. My first thought was to make the striped DSP to match the colors and I am glad I did.

Life is not improving and I am so lucky I worked way ahead on all my challenge blogs as I hate to let anyone down, so I am going to have to wrap this up!

Here is card number 2.

I am going to be linking up over at Happy Little Stampers as well with Anything Goes with dies.

A Few Card Details: Tags and the scalloped die are from MFT, I made the flip flops from Impression Obsession die with strips of paper. The first cards sentiment is from MFT and the second card’s sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps. The hearts on the flip flops are from the SU owl punch.

For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team!

No Stamping

Hello, Over at Just Us Girls Carol is our fabulous hostess and she has asked us to make a card with NO Stamping.

Here are a few ideas: (dies, stickers, watercoloring…anything that doesn’t involve stamps)

Since life has been a bit stressful and I didn’t have time to make a card this week (sorry Carol), I went in my vault of cards not shared yet and found just the perfect one. So if you are wondering why there is a blooming Christmas cactus in the photo, this card was probably made last December.

Card Details: Embossing folder-Cuttlebug, Hubiscus dies- Altenew, thanks die-Saavy, Heart die-MFT, leaf dies-Verve.

Hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and play along we would love to have you! Take care, Nanc’

Nautical

Hello, We are back again over at Seize the Birthday and we have a fun challenge for you to get creative with. Lindsey has chosen Nautical as our topping. I was so happy when I saw this topping coming up as I adore making Nautical themed cards.

We also have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us for the next two months at STB. Welcome Melanie Hungerford! We are so happy to have you designing alongside us!

Remember over at Seize the Birthday our topping is optional and you can always go the direction of justing making a birthday card!

Card Details: I borrowed this fun background stamp and sentiments from a friend and it’s from Avery Elle. Thanks Carol. I masked off the center to leave an oval. Then I cut out my anchor on my Cameo. Last, I added the twine and some Honey Bee Stamps Dew drops.

Hope to see you over at STB! Take care, Nanc’

Signs of Summer

Hello, Over at The Paper Players we have a perfect challenge for this time of year, at least for those of us in the beginnings of Summer that is. I am waving my hand and saying me of course!! Although I must say our mornings and evenings are still rather pleasant. Ann is our fabulous hostess and came up with this perfect theme and pics to inspire us!

As soon as I saw this challenge coming up I jumped right in an cracked open my new stamps and dies from Sunny Studios. How cute are these seals? Sealiously they make me smile every time I look at them.

Card Details: I first started with a background that I feel is becoming rather my go to our signature look, but hey if it works why change it? The stencil is from MFT and sponged with Oxide Inks. The darling seals are new to me and are from Sunny Studios. The sun die is one that I adore and have had for some time from Lawn Fawn. I used a mix of Copics and Colored Pencils as my medium as I haven’t mastered Copics by themselves and at this rate probably never will. Hey, but that is okay!

I am linking up once again with the sweet Darnell over at NBUS and with the fun over at Addicted to Stamps and More for Make Your Mark.

For more amazing inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the fabulous Design Team and see how they showcased SUMMER!

Happy Father’s Day

Hello, I thought I would sneak away this afternoon after my son and daughter in law left and do something to distract me and keep the sadness at bay. Yes, after all these years I am still a wimp when my son leaves as we always have the best time together! He has a way of making everything better. Anyways, I started off by searching for a challenge site to play along with. I decided on a card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, as the theme is masculine.

Card Details: I still had this SU fish set on my desk which helped the card come together rather quickly. Every bit of my card is from Stampin Up and some of the stamps are old and some are new. If you have any questions, please just let me know. This card is a case of my fellow DT member Ann’s card from the Paper Players and it was made back in 2013. I just feel in love with the colors she used!

I hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’

DAD

Hello, It’s the first of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. I am you hostess this time around and I thought that the color Blue and Brown might work well for some Father’s Day themed cards. The design team and our guest Michal have a great variety of cards for many occasions to inspire you.

I took the picture of my card in doors, and parts of the card appear to be black when in actuality they are navy. There is no black on this card at all.

I am also playing along with the sweet gals over at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge where I have selected the row of Dad, Blue, and Die-cut.

Card Details: The fish and DSP are from SU, the waves are MFT, the letters are a Sizzix die, and the greeting is from Verve. Nuvo drops for bubbles.

I hope you will pop on over to Color Hues and join us! We would love to have you!

Take care, Nanc’

Guesting at Tic Tac Toe

Hello, I am super excited to be guesting this week at The Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Thanks for having me ladies! This week they have another fun Tic Tac Board to inspire you with loads of possibilities. I am a huge fan of this challenge format as it really leaves the creativity so open and loose.

I have selected the top row of Wings, Sky and Square. To explain my choice: My seagull has wings, I have a sky and water background made with Oxide inks, and I have a square window in my design.

I made another card with a bird that also has wings and or flippers…depending on your perception. LOL

I am also linking up my card with the fun over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Die-cut and or Stencil challenge. The stenciling is optional.

Card Details: I used Oxide inks to make my sky and water background and the rest of the products are all MFT. I used Copics and Prismas too.

Please come over to the The Tic Tac Toe Challenge, as the team has some really amazing cards this week to inspire you.

I hope to see you in the gallery!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Happy Birthday at Color Hues

Second post of the day! Please scroll down if you are looking for The Paper Players!

Hello, Here we are to the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Lindsey has chosen a fabulous color combo for us. My son made a great suggestion the other night when I was asking him about a computer problem I was having, he showed me how to add a little animation to our graphics at Color Hues. I was giddy as a little kid when I was done. It doesn’t take much to make me happy! And it’s fun to liven things up once in awhile! What do you think?

Card Details: All dies and or stamps are from Stampin Up and the DSP-who knows!

As I always say but is so very true…the Design Team and our guest Janet did an incredible job with these colors…please come by and check them out. Then, I also hope you join us!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Polka Dots

Hello, Happy Sunday! Today over at The Paper Players, it’s CAS week and the theme is Polka Dots. The sweet Anne Marie is our hostess this week. This is my Second card this week using a fun background that I made a few weeks back that was just waiting to be used on a card. Not sure I like this one as much as I like the Lily card I made for STB, but it will have to do. If you didn’t see that post, just scroll a few posts back and you will find it.

I am also linking up with the gals over at Happy Little Stampers and their Anything Goes with Stencils challenge.

Card Details: Background shape was made with a stencil I made with a Spellbinders Die. Then I used Honey Bee Stamps heart stencil and Oxide Inks to make my background. The Butterfly die is from Saavy that I backed with Polka dotted paper. It was a very quick card to put together.
