More Mother’s Day

Hello, I am back today with some more Mother’s Day cards using my favorite stencil/die and stamp set from PFS that I am still crushing on! I apologize in advance as you may just be seeing a few more of these in the next few days.

Card Details: I started off wanting to make a white rose! Next, I had to make a mask of my flowers which was very easy. Then I inked up the flower, covered it with my mask, and then did the stencil work. I had intentions of making one-layer cards and somehow ended up adding layered greetings on each one. All in all, I really do like the way these came out. The greetings are a mix of Paper Roses, Verve, and SU. The Daisy Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps and one I really love! I added some Nuvo drops on each card.

Scroll down for two more cards!

This time I am playing along with two challenges; TGIF Challenges for their Mother’s Day theme and over at Time Out where they still have a Spring Challenge going on. This is my second entry at Time out.

Here are the other two cards!

I did a terrible job lining the outline stamp on the card above.

I sure appreciate you stopping by! I hope you do something today that is creative, Take care, Nanc’

Wishing you…

Second post of the day!

Hello, I am back again as it is the first of May, and time for the next challenge at Color Hues. Can you seriously believe it is May already? Where has this year gone? It blows my mind how fast life is going. Anyways, sweet Carol is our hostess and she picked a color combo that I really enjoyed.

Here is a close-up. I love that the tan paper already had a white core so when I tore it, it started the illusion of seafoam and all I had to do is add some sparkle.

Card Details: Birdhouse and all the small dies are from Spellbinders, the greeting is from Sunny Studios. The clouds were made with an MFT stencil. I used Oxide inks for all my blending.

I am also going to add my card over at the Simon Says Challenge where it’s Anything Goes.

Now, please head on over to Color Hues and check out the fabulous cards from our Design team along with our talented guest, Shawna. She is super talented and I have linked up her blog for you too!

I hope you do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Mother’s Day/ Guest

Hello, I hope you are doing well! I am so pleased to be a Guest Designer for the May Four Seasons Spring Challenge that starts today! Thanks, Darlene and the team for having me!

They have a beautiful and perfect mood board for this time of year. As you can see I took my inspiration from both the mother’s day sign and the beautiful florals on the top left.

Card Details: I adore all my stencils from Pink Fresh Studios-but the one I have today is called Choose Hope. I used Oxide inks and my heart die from MFT and my postage die is from Her Arts. A few clear Nuvo drops and a sentiment from SU to wrap it up.

I hope you will head on over to the Four Seasons challenge and check out the cards by the DT and play along!

Take care and I hope you do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Tri-Fold Card

Hello, Have we got a fun challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. Lisa is our hostess and she asked for us to make a tri-fold card for Wild card Week. If you know me, I rarely make a card that is not your typical A2 size, so this was a good challenge for me. It certainly pushed me to do something different and shock my followers. LOL I did some Pinterest browsing and I stumbled upon a barn-door fold and decided to turn “My Barn” sideways.

Here are the pics of the inside!

Card Details: I didn’t give my Spellbinders bunny much love at Easter time so I thought I would bring him out once again. The clouds and balloon come from that same die set as well. The Grass is from MFT and the butterfly is from Sizzix and fussy cut. The inside greeting is from Close to My Heart and it’s an oldie but a goodie. I did use a dotted EF on my clouds.

Now, you have to come to Just Us Girls and check out all the various folds from the DT and I hope you will be brave like me and give a Tri-fold card a try! I really did enjoy the process. Before I go I want to tell Mac thanks for being an amazing guest at JUGS! It was such a delight having you along!

Take care and enjoy your day and hopefully, you will find some time to be creative! Nanc’

Birthday Wishes

Hello, I am back today with a Birthday card which so happens to be for the challenge starting today at Seize the Birthday! I am the hostess and I chose Butterflies and or Hummingbirds as my topping. I tend to gravitate towards butterflies but I was determined to break out my Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbirds instead, after all, that is why I purchased them…right? I think I have used them maybe three times and that might be stretching the truth a bit. This card took hours to come together and that was not necessarily the coloring. Does that happen to you sometimes? I must have walked away from it at least three times. I used Copics for my coloring and a bit of white pencil for some final touches.

Card Details: The hummingbirds-Pretty Pink Posh, the scalloped edge die is from Lawn Fawn. The greeting is from Verve. The stenciled die is from MFT and called-Geometric Grid. The die-flowers and leaves are from Pink and Main. I used a dotted EF to give the leaves a bit of texture and some pearl centers on my flowers.

I hope you will come and check out the fabulous cards over at Seize the Birthday along with our wonderful Surprise Party Guest, Deepti! This is her last challenge with us and I am so very sad to see her go. Her work is always stellar. Take care, Deepti!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you take some time to do something creative today, Nanc’

Guest Designer @ATSAM

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today I am really delighted to be guesting over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their #428 Challenge-Birthdays. Thanks for having me, ladies! When I started thinking about my card, I decided to pull out some older dies that have been rather neglected and this hot air balloon has always been a favorite of mine.

Card Details: Cloud stencil and cloud die are from MFT, the balloon die and sentiment are both from SU and retired. The dot EF is from SU as well. I put some glossy accents on the tiny heart on the balloon basket to finish it off.

Now head on over to Addicted to Stamps and More and check out the cards by the fabulous team and join us!

Happy Creating, Nanc’

Pretty Papers

Hello and hope you are doing well, Today’s card doesn’t require any skill or talent, all you need is a pretty pack of paper and some great die-cuts. I really like the Tic Tac Toe Board/Challenge this week and thought I would play along again. This time I am using the center row of; Layers, Patterened Paper and Embellishment.

Card Details: Pink and Main flowers, DSP, and Green foliage are from SU. The greeting is from Stampendous.

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

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello, I have a quick card for you today for the latest challenge over at Global Design Project. It is time to CASE the card they have selected for us below. I was intrigued by it the moment I saw it. I love taking foliage and gathering it on one side of a card so that is what I have done. I thought the double circle was a nice touch in front of the rectangle. My twine is a bit too thick and will make it hard to mail, but I like it.

Card Details: The dies/stamps I have used for this card are a mix of two SU sets-Sunflowers and Forever Fern. The greeting is from Sunny Studios. The DSP is SU as well.

I hope you did something today that brought you joy, Nanc’

CAS-Stenciling

Hello, Happy Sunday! I needed to make some quick CAS thank you cards and I figured there is no better stencil than this Retro Plam Trees from Newton’s Nook. The greeting is from Scrapbook.com.

I am playing along with two challenges. The first is Addicted to CAS where the challenge is a One-Layer card. And over at Happy Little Stampers-Anything goes with Stencils.

I hope you have a wonderful day and you find some time to be creative. We are headed to the beach with our bikes! Should be a great day! Nanc’

Thank YOU!

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls, creative Cecile is our fabulous hostess and she has a very unique and fun photo for us this week. Check it out below!

As soon as I saw this photo I thought speech bubble! So that is what I did.

Card Details: A very quick and easy card to do. The Speech bubble die is ancient and from SU. The greetings are a mix of this and that. At the last minute, I took a black marker and outlined the green background paper to give it some pop.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Mac did with this fun photo! Happy crafting, Nanc’
