Hi, Over at Addicted to Stamps and More they have a nautical picture for us to be inspired by.  I love making nautical cards, so I knew right away I would be playing along. This card was easy and fun to do.

Card Details: All products are SU except for the scalloped die which is Spellbinders.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Garden @ The Twofer Challenge

Hello,  I finally finished my cards for the Twofer Challenge. I did have to go the more conventional route this time with my cards, as the stamp is so large and beautiful I couldn’t think of another way to showcase it that wouldn’t lose its appeal. Anyways,  I decided to cut apart one of my finished pieces to make it more of a tile look and lift two of the panels with fun foam. Then I distressed the edges. I am super pleased with how it came out.  For the second card, I went with traditional coloring.  I stamped the sentiment crooked (of course I did) after I was done coloring, so had to add the additional layer.  The beautiful stamp is perfect for this word this month. If I had a beautiful garden, rest assured, it would have an old fashioned watering can like this one.  The stamp is one of my all-time favorites and is from Northwoods stamps. The two sentiments are from Verve and I used Prisma Colored pencils.  Below are a few more pics.

I am so glad you came by!

Happy crafting, Nanc’

Rainbow…

YES, I know this card looks quite similar to the last card I posted for Seize the Birthday.  I thought about not posting it and trying again, but then I thought what the heck… I like it…so post it!  So HERE it is!  Although, last time our topping was Sunshine and this time the topping is Rainbows, so they are different. LOL All the diecuts including the three white scallops at the base of the card ( that you can hardly see) are all from MFT. The only thing that is not, is the sentiment! That is my go-to from Verve. I hadn’t used my buttons in forever so it was good to find them again.

You must pop on over to STB and check out all the rainbow of color!  They are all so pretty and oh so different!  While you are there give our guest Su Mohr some love.

Take care, Nanc’

Birthday Bouquet!

Today I have a Birthday card for the CAS Watercolour Challenge where they are asking us to make a Bouquet of flowers in Darnell’s honor. I couldn’t pass this challenge up, as I just adore Darnell to pieces. Happy Belated Birthday Darnell!  I always feel like I am cheating when I heat emboss my watercolor piece, but so far that is all I have confidence in doing.  Maybe someday I will try my hand at no-line watercolouring.

Card details:  The images are from Stampendous and colored with Catherine Pooler and SU inks. Rectangles are SU and so are the enamel dots.

Have a fabulously creative day, Nanc’

Feel Better Soon

Hello,  I have a quick post for you today for the new Color Challenge starting over at The Paper Players. Not sure what possessed me to photograph it on such a busy piece of paper. LOL  I just love this resist paper from SU that I used for the background.  I use it very sparingly, as I like it so much and don’t want to run out any time soon. I don’t know why they don’t stock it continuously. It’s so beautiful and quick and works so well with Oxide Inks. My green is a bit softer than the challenge color, so hopefully that is alright.

Card Details: Paper -SU, sentiment-Verve, flowers, leafy swirl, and scalloped rectangles are-MFT.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Thank You!

Hello, The Trend at Just Us Girls this week is to make your sentiment the focal point of your card! Today’s card is made with all different sets of Stampin Up. The Victorian strip you see at the bottom is made with my Fiskars cutter.  This card came together rather quickly!

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the team’s fabulous work along with our guest Emma!

Hope to see you there! Nanc’

Alcohol Ink Lifting…so fun!

Hello there,  This morning after I went and visited my dad, it was raining, so it was a perfect time to go play in the studio.  I knew I was going to get messy! I had so much fun making some awesome backgrounds. Thank goodness the manicure isn’t for another couple of weeks. LOL   Have you tried alcohol inks on Acetate?  It works so very well! The first thing I did was take my yellow and orange inks and spread them all over my piece of acetate. Then I took my sun stencil ( that clearly will never look the same) and used a blending solution to remove some of the colors.  Note: It happens very quickly on acetate. It was so simple with great results!   Last, I knew I had a perfect Verve stamp set to use for my additional sun and greeting. I colored the sun with Copics and colored pencil.  Some added layers behind the greeting to give it some dimension and I was done. My card was inspired by three challenges: CAS Stencil , Just Add Ink, and CAS(E) this Sketch.  I chose -Summer the season I am currently in for Just Add Ink.

Here is another picture!  Thanks for the visit and happy crafting! I am praying for more rain…LOL Nanc’

Just Add Ink DT Member!

Hello,  Hope your day is off to a good start! Today’s card was inspired by the colors over at Just Add Ink.  It’s been a while since I joined in their challenge and I must say they have a Design Team member at JAI that has really caught my eye as of late! Her name is Rochelle Blok.  She makes the most beautiful cards I have EVER seen using SU products! Needless to say, I have bookmarked her blog and I have become a regular snooper! I don’t think she knows she has a new stalker on her hands. LOL  The last three cards that she has posted have ALL taken my breath away! I have bookmarked her name, so you must run on over and check out her blog!

Now my card details:  All products above are SU including the DP!

Thanks for checkin’ in on me, Nanc’

Smile…it’s your Birthday!

Hello friends,  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Word Week and the word is Smile!  Last September when I was visiting MFT with (fellow DT member) Bobby and Michelle Ferguson (a friend I met online), I took a picture of a card in their lovely store that I fell in love with. Finally, nearly a year later I CASED it and added my own touch with the clouds.  It’s not perfect, but I do love how it turned out.  I used the MFT cloud stencil and Oxide inks to do my blending. I ended up making a mask to make it work out completely.

Below you will see a photo of the card that inspired me.

Card Details:  SMILE-wooden stamp, it’s your birthday-Verve, Clouds-Lawn Fawn, Wonky Rectangles-MFT.

Thanks for stopping in and if you have a chance to head over to Just Us Girls, please help us in welcoming our new Guest Emma Delfosse!
