Get Well

Hello,  Today’s card is for Two Challenges- The Color Throwdown and CAS Watercolour. I just had to get out one of my all-time favorite SU sets as soon as I saw the theme at CAS Watercolour was Maple Leaf. I started off by doing the smooshing technique with two different colors of Purple on Watercolour paper. Next, I cut out the leaves…both solid and the outline ones.  Last, I had to incorporate the grey and decided a little sparkle paper would do the trick just fine. The Get Well sentiment is SU. A few rhinestones and I was done.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Sweets at The Twofer Challenge

Hello, Today’s cards are for the Twofer Challenge this month and the word Darnell has for us is Sweets. I have been thinking hard about this challenge for about two weeks and finally an idea came to mind this weekend. I knew I had a chocolate stamp set from Verve that was going to work perfectly for the one card, but I wanted to come up with something clever to do with the melting chocolate on the second one and then it dawned on me….dripping paint. Not sure why that took two weeks to think of, I mean for peet sake it looks like dripping paint. LOL

Here are some card details: First card: U and dripping chocolate is from Verve, the Color my World is Lawn Fawn, the Colored Pencil is from Paper Smooches, and the Sweet Friend is from SU, and lots of Dimensionals too on both cards. Second card: All the stamps are from Verve except the Love and Hugs is from W plus 9. The Chocolate die-cut is from Verve as well,  I have Wink of Stella on my chocolate to give it some shimmer but it doesn’t show in the photo much. I made MANY attempts with crystal Effects, but it turned into a hot mess. I colored the chocolate pieces with Copics, and the Dots EF is SU.

Here is a pic of the stamp set I used.

You have a few more days before this challenge closes! You should definitely play along!  Thanks for your visits as they are so very much appreciated, Nanc’

Happy Wonderful Christmas

Hello there, I hope you have found some time to be creative this week. Today’s cards are for the CAS Stencil Challenge this month. They asked us to stencil onto Patterned Paper. As you will see in the photo below, I made my own stencil using a Simon Says Leafy Circle die that I have been ignoring as of late. I paired that with SU stamps, and coordinating die-cuts. The berries were made with a hole punch.  Very quick and easy cards for sure.  Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

Merry and Holiday

Got a quick pair of cards today for CAS Mix Up Card Challenge.  It’s so hard to photograph foiling. For my cards…I chose to use foiling, with stamping and die-cutting. My foil is from Gina K, the snowflakes are Memory Box, and the sentiments are Verve. A few rhinestones in the center of my snowflakes and I was done.  I am nearly done with my Christmas cards and now it’s time to work on the ones for the store!

Have a creative day, Nanc’

For the Kids

 

Hello, I hope your day is off to a great start and you came by to see what the next topping is over at Seize the Birthday! ‘Wink, Wink!’  Well, we do have a great one starting today that was selected by the hilarious- Lindsey. She has the best sense of humor! Love her!  Anyways, she wants us to focus on the kids!  I knew right away I was going to be using my MFT Dragons and I have linked up the card that I cased here!  I colored my sweet dragon with Copics and a little bit of colored pencils too. The white dots were made with a gel pen. You must run on over to STB and check out the rest of the cards by the DT and our guest Annie as they are terrific.

All products are MFT.

I hope you have a wonderfully creative day! Nanc’

Feather at CASology

Hello, I have a CAS card for you today that goes along with the word over at CASology. The word is Feather. I just love this older Stamp set from Papertrey Ink and I knew right away that I was going to watercolor it to bring it to life. I finished it off with a blue Victorian style strip down the side and some pretty turquoise sequins.  The sentiment is from Verve.

Have a terrific day, Nanc’

The Laundry is….

Is this card and die set not the cutest thing ever? All courtesy of MFT of course. My DIL- Sandra asked me to make a card for her expecting sister using this set, and this is what I came up with. Of course, I snooped around Pinterest for some inspiration.  This is the card that inspired me.  I am pretty happy with the results and hopefully she will be too. The card all started with this Sketch I found over at Inspire. Create. Challenges.  I thought the sketch worked well with the poles of the clothesline. This card makes me dream of a GD of my own someday! Oh, what fun that would be. Of course, if they are still living in California, that wouldn’t be good at all! Hopefully, when the time comes they will live closer! Fingers tripled crossed!

Card Details: All dies are MFT, the sky background was blended with Oxide inks, some of the clothes have small punches for embellishments and or DP.

Hope you find some time to be creative today, Nanc

Designer Paper

I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and it’s time for Word Week.  My word is Designer Paper.  If you are anything like me, you have tons of DP that is being completely neglected. The piece I used on my card today is from Gina K. Designs, and I bet I have had it for at least 8 years. It’s really beautiful and I am so glad I got to put it to good use. We also have a new guest with us this month. In fact, she is a former JUG head.  Please help me welcome Chris Dring to our team for the month of October.  Hey Chris…so very glad you are joining us!

I sure hope you will also consider joining us this week, you might even be chosen as our next Guest Designer.  Give it a try! All the details are over on the blog.

Card Details: DP- Gina K., MFT stitched florals, scallop edge is MFT???, Stitched Circles are SU, Leaf die is Verve, and Nuvo drops.

I hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us! You may even end up being our next Chic of the Week.

Take care, Nanc’
