Happy B’Day

I just love this new PI Birthday Buddies set I recently got from MFT and I thought this week’s Wednesday Sketch would be the perfect time to color her up.  I also decided that the Perfect Pool Water Stencil would make for a great cobblestone pathway and that is what I did.  Boy oh boy, am I happy the way it turned out. I am just itching to make another one. I also used MFT’s Cloud Stencil too.  I used both Copics and colored pencils to color my stamps. The green that is in the background is a piece of scrap paper that I bet I have had for 15 years.  I am not joking.  I think it might be from Creative Memories.  As you can see I keep all my scraps.  So glad I did as it worked perfectly for my bushes. The sentiment-Happy B’day comes with the Birthday Buddies set and as for Let’s Celebrate, it’s from Papertrey Ink.

Here is the MFT Pool Water Stencil I used for my cobblestone pathway.

Here are a few closeups I took outside.

I sure appreciate you coming by!  Stay safe out there, Nanc’

Miss You

This is my second post for the day but I am cutting it down to the wire with the Sketch Challenge over at MFT.  I started using Oxide inks to make my beach scene, but the sand itself is just kraft cardstock.  I should have given it some texture, but totally forgot.  Using my Beach Scene builders Palm Tree, one of the shells from that set, along with a starfish shell from Impression Obsession, I managed to check off the circle elements from the sketch.  The miss you sentiment is also from MFT.  I sure did struggle with the banner.  I made four different ones and still not overly happy with it. The fun scalloped rectangle I believe is Spellbinders.

Thanks for stopping by I sure do appreciate your sweet comments! Nanc’

Let’s Celebrate You

Hello, I have a card today for two challenges.  I paired the colors from The Paper Players with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I still am enjoying my new SU set called Celebrate Sunflowers. In fact, my entire card is from SU. A little Copics and then enamel dots finished it off.

Thanks for popping in and I hope this post finds you well! HUGS, Nanc’

Happy Birthday

Hello, It’s Sunday at least I think it is.  I have a fun card for you today for a couple of challenges.  My idea began with this great sketch over at My Favorite Things. When I first looked at the sketch I saw a swimming pool. Plus, I just got the new Perfect Pool water stencil from MFT that I have been itching to use. Next, I decided to pair it up with the word Peaceful at Time Out Challenge. I don’t know about you, but there is nothing more peaceful to me than floating around a swimming pool on an innertube. Boy do I miss our pool, especially this summer with the pandemic and all.  At least my little MFT Elephant is enjoying himself on this hot summer day.  I put a light coat of white ink over my first color of Broken China Oxide ink. It really looks great IRL. Still have a lot to learn with Copics but I will get there.

All stamps and the stencil are MFT.

I so appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’

All Eyes on You…

I have a quick card for you today that goes with the sketch this week at The Paper Players.  I will also be joining Darnell over at NBUS as it is the first time I inked up these cute little monsters from Your Next Stamp. I used Prismas today as my medium of choice. As you can see I am still working on using up some Designer Paper too.

Thanks for popping in, HUGS Nanc’

Lemonade

Hello, I hope this post finds you well. I started my plans for my card using the fun sketch over at My Favorite Things.  I must say that today’s card is one I am pretty happy with, which is a rarity! LOL  I have been working hard to improve my coloring skills especially with Copics and this is probably the best job I have done when it comes to people.  I still have some work to do that is for sure, especially in the hair department, but I am enjoying the process.  Also, the fun paper you see behind my sweet PI little lemonade lover is not designer paper but actually a piece of packaging from some canning jars that I bought a while ago.  I am tickled to have finally used some of it.  I love repurposing something so pretty.

I made the 3 victorian edge pieces behind my rectangle with my Fiskers cutter. I added some cute yellow round gemstones and I was done.

I am also linking my card up over at two additional challenges.  Over at Inkspirational Challenge, they have the word Sketch and they are allowing us to link our card up If we used a Sketch from another challenge. Next at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, I am using the row- Polka Dots, Sequins, and Summer.  I hope they don’t mind I substituted my yellow gems for the sequins and nothing screams summer like a nice cold glass of lemonade.

Thanks for visiting, Nanc’

Hard to Love!

 

Hi, Hope you are having a creative week! I managed to squeeze a bit of time in my studio yesterday and created two cards to share. Have you ever purchased a stamp set and every time you try to love it….you just can’t?  That is how I feel about the older set I have for you today by SU, it’s called Lotus Blossom. I decided instead of throwing the blossoms into the circular file after I stamped them, I would forge ahead and see what I could do to jazz them up. However, I have a strong feeling it’s going to be a while again before this set leaves my shelf.  As negative as I have been about my card, sorry about that, I must admit I love the Color Cardstock and Ink from SU- it’s called Rich Razzleberry. Both my designs were inspired by this great sketch over at The Paper Players.

Thanks for stopping by, Nanc’

You are Loved!

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Angie is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she came up with a very fun and unique Trend Challenge for us this week. It’s called off the edge. I wish I would have thought of it! Great job Angie! My SU flowers were made out of alcohol inks, the leaves are a SU punch, tag is Verve, and the sentiment is from SSS.  I am pretty happy with the way this card came together and so quickly at that.  As you can tell, I cut down my card base a bit so that my tag could hang off the edge.

So let your imagination go and join us this week!  Nanc’

Celebrate Your Day!

I needed to make a birthday card and decided to join in with this fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches .  Then I stopped by over at Addicted to Stamps and More where I was happy to see it was time for their Anything Goes Challenge! Since my SU leaves seem to have a permanent place on my desk, I decided to make one more card with them.  Well, maybe this will be the last one, but I think that is very unlikely. LOL  This time I decide to also use the SU leaf stamp that goes with this die for my background as well. I sponged some Oxide inks on some wet water colored paper using a tissue, I love the texture that the watercolor paper and the tissue make together.  Then I used my glossy accents and some glitter to give my leaves some added sparkle, since it is a Birthday card, and who doesn’t like sparkle. I heat embossed my Verve sentiment too. This card was a lot of fun to put together!

Below is a close up of my sparkly leaves.

Thanks for having a look, and I hope you are having a wonderful day! Nanc’

Heartfelt Thanks

Got a quick post for you today for the great Sketch over at The Paper Players Challenge along with day 25 of the 30 day Coloring Challenge. I have missed three out of the 25 days, but I am pretty happy with those results.  Hopefully, I can finish strong. I colored the above image with Prisma Colored pencils.  This is one of my go to images and color combos with this particular stamp. It’s one of my favs!  Love the look of sandpaper on white core paper. If you haven’t tried it you must!
