Word Week-Animals

Hello, Here we are back to Saturday again and time for the Word Week at Just Us Girls. I don’t know what your weather is like where you are but let me just say that it’s been perfect here! Yesterday, hubby and I spent the morning at the beach, which in fact totally inspired my card for today. As you can see I am still in fun background mode!

Card Details: Die cuts are from Sizzix, I used the smooshing technique to color my seahorse and seagrass. The background was made with my MFT water stencil along with a stencil I made with stitched rectangles and a piece of acetate. Don’t look too close around my rectangles as the ink may have come through and left a dashed border around each rectangle. Note to self, don’t use stitched dies when making your own stencil. LOL The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I also, realized that this is the first time I used my Seahorse and Sand-dollar from Sizzix so I will be sharing this over at the fabulous Darnell’s NBUS.

The card that inspired me also with this layout is below! I love everything Michelle does from the Card Grotto! She is super talented!

Come on over to Just Us Girls, we have a brand new Guest with us… Welcome, Shawna! Shawna along with the team have a fun array of animals for you to enjoy!

Take care, Nanc’

Embossed Woodgrain

DSC_053935Happy Memorial Day Weekend Friends,  I hope you are enjoying yourself!  Today’s card is for the inspiration photo over at The Card Concept.  I have been eyeing this challenge for about a week now, and finally had a chance last night to put something together.  I decided right away that I wanted to try and heat emboss my woodgrain background stamp and see if I would like it.  I must say, I think it came out great!  The beautiful daisies and leaves were made with a Sizzix die that a friend of mine asked if I was interested in purchasing from her.  Boy am I glad she asked, I LOVE them both!  I added some white dots with a gel pen and not sure I should have! Hmmmm….what do you think? I think my style for this card would be Clean and Layered.  The sentiment is a Verve set called Heartfelt Phrases that I find myself using a lot.  I bet this month I have mailed out about 20 cards for various occasions!  My stock is the lowest it has ever been, but summer is around the corner so hopefully I will have some time to replenish it.

Well, that is all for me today!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Nanc’
