Merry Christmas

Hello, Happy Monday! I had some time over the past week to make a couple of cards for the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers Hop. This is something that is new to me. I heard about it over on their Build Your Stash Holiday Card FB Page. I have linked them both up for you! If you love making Holiday cards, you should check it out, and the hop of course! Did I mention there are prizes to be won! Details about my card are below!

Here is my second card. I put Bermuda Bay on the outside ring!

To this day it is still one of my favorite SU colors!

I am also going to join in over at the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge. This is also a new challenge that you should definitely check out! The sweet ladies- Darlene and Diane started it along with their many other challenges.

Card Details: These colors were suggested by my good friend Carol, and I just love them together. These two wreath die-cuts belong to Carol as well and are from Simon Says Stamps. One is called Ornamental wreath and is sadly no longer available and the other is called Ring Wreath and I can still find it there. You have to have lots of patience if you want to really bring these to life by putting some color behind or on top of the openings. I decided that I would also add some foliage from SU at the top of the wreath in silver and white from the Forever Fern die set. The bow is also from SU (retired) and I like it but wish it was a bit bigger. The greeting is SU as well and heat embossed in silver.

Take care and I hope you have a great week! Nanc’

MOM

Hello, Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your day! I needed to work on some inventory this afternoon, after hubby and I had lunch at the park and went for our daily walk, and I knew right away when I sat down I was going to create something for this fabulous color combo going on over at The Color Throwdown. I couldn’t wait to get started because I just love pink, and in this challenge they have two shades of pink paired with cream. Those colors just screamed Mother’s Day card to me. This card was fun to put together.

Here is a front shot of the card.

Details: A few days ago I had a SSS order come in with this fun new stencil from Altenew called Rose Bouquet and a great SSS MOM die-cut, along with maybe a few other things. LOL So since these items were used for the first time, I am going to link my card up over at NBUS also. After I inked my base of my leaves I came back with a Q-tip to give the leaves some more realistic definition with the same Antique linen ink. It worked perfectly. The bottom sentiment is from Paper Roses- Mother’s Day Quotes and I just love it. Not sure I should have inked it in black ( and crooked-grr) but it’s a little late now. LOL I finished it off with a ribbon and some Nuvo drops in groups of 3.

I hope if you are celebrating Easter tomorrow you have a truly wonderful day. Take care, Nanc’

Happy Birthday to YOU!

Hello,  Here is the newest topping and card for Seize the Birthday! Colleen has asked us to make the sentiment the focal point of the card.  I am not 100 % in love with my card and I was going to try again, but there was no time in my busy life these days.  I was just sponging away and probably worrying about things when suddenly I realized I made one of the leaves pink and decided to just roll with it.  I promise you if you hop on over to Seize the Birthday, my teammates did a far better job than I.

Before I go, I need to thank Joyce for being such a fabulous guest these past few months.  We have really enjoyed all of your creations and hope you will continue to grace us with your fabulous work in our gallery from time to time!!

Card Details: My new Peony Stencil for SSS and the Sentiment is also SSS and is from the You Matter stamp set.  A bow and some rhinestones to finish it off.

Have a creatively wonderful day, Nanc’
