Dots and Stripes!

Hello,  Hope your day is off to a great start! Today starts a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  Our topping that Vicki has chosen is Dots and Stripes.  I had a great time making this card! I paired up some of my MFT flower stamps with some Elizabeth Craft Designs candle die-cuts that I really love, and some fabulous polka dotted paper.  In addition, the die-cut leaves are Verve and the sentiment is SU.  It has some pop dots for dimension as well.

Before I go I would like to welcome the talented Tenia to STB, as she is our next Surprise Party Guest for the next two months!  Tenia, we are all so thrilled to have you joining us!

Happy crafting, Nanc’

Hugs!

Hello,  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a challenge to use a Background stamp somewhere on your card and or project.  I decided to also make a background with a smaller leaf SU stamp (on the pink cardstock) and then used my script background stamp (on my green piece of cardstock).  I just love this stamp set from SU. It is one of my all-time favorite wooden block stamps that always seems to be my go too with great results. I colored the flowers with my Copics and a bit of colored pencil. I am still a work in progress that is for sure. The HUGS die from Lawn Fawn is cut from shiny silver cardstock.

TFChallenge#30I am also linking my card up over at the Flower Challenge where it’s Anything Goes

I hope you have a wonderful day and will consider stopping on over at JUGS and joining us!  Nanc’

Birthday!

Hello, Hope you are enjoying your day! Please excuse this terrible photo.  I would retake it, but it’s been mailed.  I apparently didn’t check to see if it was any good, before it got sent on its way! We have Birthday as our Word this week at Just Us Girls and I recently got this fun Birthday coverplate from SU that I know I am going to enjoy! I paired it up with a New Birthday Stamp Set that is also from SU called Blow Out the Candles. The little florals are from MFT. I made my own striped background using a SU stencil and some Oxide Inks. The scalloped circles are Spellbinders and the stitched circle is also SU. The background paper is a deep purple in case you can’t tell. (insert eye roll)

I would like to take a minute and welcome our Newest Guest over at Just Us Girls and her name is Greta.  Welcome Greta!!  We are super glad you are designing with us this month.

Hope to see you over at JUGS! Happy Crafting! Nanc’

Celebrate Your Day

 

Hello,  Today’s card was first inspired by the Monthly Mix over at Gina K. Designs.  The talented Karen Hightower has asked us to use Coral (or Orange) as the dominant color on our card and or project. I don’t make a lot of cards in orange, so this intrigued me right away, not to mention her own card was fabulous and so inspiring too. I am also going to link my card up over at the Rainbow Card Challenge (a new challenge site that I stumbled upon) where they have the same color this month.

Here is a bit of info on my card. The background butterfly stamps, vase and flowers are from Gina K. Designs, the rectangle dies are SU, and the sentiment is from Verve.  The images where embossed with white embossing powder, and I water colored my vase and flowers.

I so appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’

Hello Sweet Friend

Hello,  Yes I have another card for you today.  I know…crazy huh! I love being home a bit too much.  Today’s card is for the CAS Stencil challenge. I love that Loll created this challenge, so that I may use my stencils more, and not forget about them as I often do. Thanks Loll!!!   When I was making my other card that I posted a few days ago with the same stencil, I made this one also using a different color of Dylusion Spray, Cherry Pie. In the bottle it appears to be more of a pink, but comes out red. It sure gives a great punch and so simple to do.  The sentiment is from SU and the added flowers are made with a MS punch.

Here is a picture of the spray by Ranger if you have never heard of it.  Thanks for the visit and happy stamping! Nanc’

You are Amazing….

Hello, Today’s card is something that has been keeping me up at night. LOL Today, I finally put it together. It’s quite a mix of different stamp sets along with different challenges.  The inspiration all started when I stumbled across Laurie’s Win it Wednesday challenge over at Papertrey Ink. She asked us to use our favorite color.  That wasn’t too hard, as I gravitate to green quite often, as it’s the largest folder of scraps I have in my scrap binder, and I love using Black card bases as well! Then I realized that Time Out Challenges was looking for something Retro this week, and finally over at Inspirational Challenge the word is TEXT.  So there you have it a THREEFER!! LOL See why it was keeping me awake. LOL

Here is a quick reference to my supplies: Bo Bunny DP, SU- Text You Later and Thoughtful Banners, telephone is from Papertrey Ink, the Paper die cut is from Paper Smooches.

I so appreciate your visits as of late.

Take care and happy stamping,  Nanc’

LOVE you…

Hello,  Today I am linking my card up over at Freshly Made Sketches and CAS Mix Up Challenges. My sentiment is a little bit more to the right than it should be, and I extended the underneath color to the right as well for balance, so I hope that’s ok.  The blending didn’t come out so well, so I added some splatters to distract your eyes. LOL The heart paper is from SU and does a resist when you ink it up…so fun, the YOU sentiment is from Neat and Tangled, and the Love die is from SSS.  It’s hard to see the dimension on my card as it was dreary when I took the photo…so I hope it’s enough for the challenge.

I so appreciate your visits and Happy Stamping! Nanc’

You Make Me Smile…

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! We have a fun Color Combo for you this week at Just Us Girls. Pink, Red and White!  My card came together very quickly! I love this new set from SU…it’s called wishing You Well. The sentiment is also from SU and comes from the Colorful Season’s set. Both rectangles are MFT.  Please come on over to JUGS and join us!  We would love to have you!

I really appreciate all of your visits and your sweet comments.

Take care, Nanc’

JOY

Happy Weekend! Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend Week.  The Trend that Carol chose for us is Wood. I feel like I cheated a bit, as the only thing I have on my card that is wooden is a star that I have stained with ink and decorated to look like a Christmas Cookie. I know…epic fail on my part. I do like the way this card came together though. I used a JOY die and a sentiment from MFT and the fun paper is from SU.

Please head on over to Just Us Girls, where I can assure you, the team did a little bit more than I with this challenge.  Nanc’

Love is in the Air

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start.  It’s February, and time to get out those Love theme stamps.  The card I have for you today is for The Paper Players where they have a Love inspired theme for us to get inspired by and over at Time Out Challenges they also have a Love themed photo too. You can’t have a Valentine card without red somewhere….Right? I have had this SU set for over a month or two now and have been waiting for February to give it a try.  I can tell it will be one I will be using again and again, and I haven’t even used one of the dies that comes in the set that is a complete puzzle. Fun Fun!

Nearly all the products are SU and the DP is Bo Bunny. Isn’t it gorgeous? The large stitched rectangle is MFT.

I am so glad you stopped by! Nanc’
