Happy New Year! Hello-2022

This is my second post of the day! If you are looking for Just Us Girls…scroll down!

Hello, Happy New Year to you! I am back today from a much-needed and enjoyable Holiday break with the first card of 2022. Today’s card is for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues! Hannelie is our hostess and she has chosen, Red and Purple. As you can see on my card I embraced all different shades of purple. It may appear that her coat is on the blue side of things but I promise it is more of a periwinkle tone of purple. (Fellow DT member, Carol can come to my defense as it is now in her hands.)

Card Details: The cute Shopping Spree die cut is borrowed from a friend and is from Spellbinders. The happy die is from MFT, and the EF background is from Sizzix-Tim Holtz. I really love the way this turned out! There is a sample of a darling card using this die on the Spellbinders site that inspired me to use this for something other than Christmas.

Before I go, Do you do New Year’s resolutions? I usually don’t do a very good job sticking with these types of things. So, what I have been doing the past few years is, I come up with a WORD for the year to live by and or to perhaps challenge me to do things better. My word in 2020 was acceptance, my word for 2021- was productive and my word for this year is going to be…wellness. My health has really been put on the back burner this year and I have been really suffering, especially over the past several months and most recently, the Holidays. So now that my hubby is better and hopefully cancer-free, and I am adapting to my father’s situation with his Dementia and unhappiness in the ALF, it is time to take care of me! I have to get my health back on track and get to the bottom of all the troubles I am having! Wish me luck!

Please come on by Color Hues and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and our guest-Tenia. We would love to have you join us too! And once again Happy New Year to all of you!

Take care, Nanc’

Celebrate the Season

Hello, I am back again today with another Christmas card. Today I am linking this fun card up over at Happy Little Stampers-Anything Goes with Dies and Christmas Kickstart where it just has to be Christmassy.

My BF-Carol and I often get together and share supplies and this darling package-carrying die-cut is hers, and it is from Spellbinders. Below you will see that her legs move when you shake the card from side to side. This set is a lot of fun to play with and I have another card using her for a DT commitment, coming up in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned. The cute tree EF background is from Momenta and my friend’s too.

I hope you are having a great start to your week! Take care, Nanc’

NOEL

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls it is our last challenge of the year and we also are having a DT opportunity too! If you think you might be interested, please visit the blog to get the details on the simple way to apply. As soon as I saw the wreath in the photo I decided that is where my inspiration would begin. This card didn’t quite turn out like I had planned, as the wreath looks a bit wonky but I had no time for a redo. I do love the polka-dotted letters though.

I am also going to link up with the Global Design Project where the Theme is Christmas.

Card Details: Spellbinders-NOEL was used for everything except the small base of the wreath which is from SU. I used my victorian blade on my Fiskers cutter to make the decorative edge.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and check out how the team and our guest Rachel were inspired! Speaking of Rachel…It was a pleasure having you with us this month and hope you will visit us again soon.

Take care, Nanc’

Silver and Gold

Hello, It is the middle of the month, and time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Sweet Carol has chosen a color combo that might make you break out in song… it does me anyway! LOL Silver and Gold! As you know, mirrored paper is hard to photograph.

Card Details: This was a very quick and easy card. The Noel die is from Spellbinders the Music paper is actually vellum and cut out with my postal die from Hero Arts. Some ribbon and I was done.

You have to come by Color Hues and check out my fabulous DT’s cards and see how they sparkle and shine,

Take care, Nanc’

Thanks

Hello, I have a quick and simple card for you today where the embossing folder and dies do all the work. I am playing along with the girls over at Freshly Made Sketches. Nobody does CAS like Cecile and she was the brains behind this fun sketch. Now that I am finished with the card I thought of a few other things I could have done. So perhaps I will be back before it closes with another entry.

Card Details: Most the products on this card are new to me thanks to the generosity of a fellow card maker! The dies are from Spellbinders and the 3D embossing folder is just gorgeous and from Sizzix called Bohemian Botanicals, and the sentiment is Verve.

Have a wonderful creative day, Nanc’

Project Time…

Number 2

Hello Friends,

 Hope your having a great day!

This is my second post today so please scroll down if your looking for Just Us Girls!

Over at Stamp TV they have a Guest Designer search and this time they are

asking us to…

 Make anything BUT a regular, flat greeting card. 

It can be a unique card: like a pop up card, a gift card holder,

a tent topper, or it can be an altered item!

I chose to make a gift basket using one of my all time

favorite Gina K design sets called Hugs and Prayers

(It’s retired by the way…sorry)

and combined it with GKD sentiment from A Little Something stamp set.

I came across this great basket using nestabilities from the talented

Debbie Olson.  Of course mine doesn’t look half as good as hers

and I used a different nesty shape then the one she has pictured.

Then, I realized after I had adhered my panels that I forgot to add

the ribbon underneath.  Next time!

I also wanted to make my own 3-d flower using a Stampin Up flower blossom punch.

I watched this video here!

I have a few more photos for you so that you can see the process

along with different views.

I leaned it back a little for better lighting!IMG_0018

I have linked up Debbie Olson’s blog for you above so that you may see a real work

of ART.  The only dimensions that I changed was for my handle.

 My handle is 3/4 wide by 12 inches long.

The paper is from Stampin UP.

I used one of my favorite stems from My Favorite Things.

Used lots of dimensionals too!

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope you

have a wonderful day…thanks for stopping by!

The weather is gorgeous here…going to head outside.

Nanc’
