Use a Stencil at STB

Hello, I am back today with the next topping at Seize the Birthday and Vicki our host has chosen one that I know is going to be a big hit. It is certainly one I loved right away! You may have noticed that I rarely make a card now without breaking out a stencil or two. LOL

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps, the leaf stencil background is from Miss Ink Stamps, the greeting is from SU- I do believe. The clear dewdrops are from Honey bee Stamps.

I hope you will break out those stencils, that I know you have, and join us at Seize the Birthday sometime over the next two weeks! The Design Team and our guest, Lorraine did an amazing job!

Take care and I hope you do something today that brings you JOY! Nanc’

Card Details: Stamps are all SU and the boats are from Impression Obsession. The wave die is an oldie from MFT. The enamel dots are also SU.

I hope you come on over to Just Us Girls and join us! Take care and I hope you do something creative and or fun today, Nanc’

Friend-Happy Birthday

Hello, It’s the middle of the month and time for our next color combo over at Color Hues. Cindy is our fabulous hostess and she chose two colors that I really enjoyed. I am definitely going to remember this combination in the future. Thanks, Cindy!

Card Details: After I stamped my Pink Fresh Studio-Layered Bouquet, I decided that they looked a bit lost on the all-white background and that is when I decided to make it striped using the same color of ink and an old SU stencil. The Happy Birthday is from Scrapbook.com and the friend die is from Honey Bee Stamps.

Before I close, I need to welcome two guest designers over at Color Hues joining us today, we have Kim Miller and Marcia Hill. You really must come and check out their amazing cards, along with my fabulous teammates. There is so much inspiration over there!

I am also linking up over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Any Occasion

I hope you do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Celebrate

Hello, It is Thursday, and time for our next topping at Seize the Birthday! The topping that was selected by Shirley, is Faux or Real Stitching. If you know me, which most of my followers do, I don’t sew! So I have elected to use the fake stuff and incorporate as many stitched die cuts as I could in my design.

We also have our next and very talented Surprise Party Guest joining us today!  Lorraine Aquilina! You will have to come by and check out her amazing card! Welcome, Lorraine! We are thrilled to have you with us!

A Few Card Details: I used an older engineer-type circle stencil to make my dotted background. First, I sponged the colors, and then I came back in with a sharpie and traced the circles. The cake stamp is from SU. The celebrate die is from Paper Roses. I put an extension to my MFT tag and covered it up with the MFT ric-rac to make a longer tag. The scalloped edge die is also MFT, I do believe. I added a few of my favorite Honeybee stamps dew-drops also.

I will be linking my card up over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Die Cut Challenge too!

Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and play along with us! Take care, Nanc’

Flowers at Just us Girls

Hello, I am back today with two more cards using that same set that I have been smitten with this past couple of weeks from Pink Fresh Studios. Plus, with tomorrow being Mother’s Day and Just Us Girls‘ Word Week challenge is FLOWERS, I just had to use them one last time.

We also have a brand new guest with us this month at JUGS! I would like to give a warm welcome to Deborah Wheeler. Welcome, Deborah! I am super excited to have you joining us!

Here is my second card!

I am also playing along over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes Stencil Challenge where I am a regular. LOL

A Few Card Details: Pink Fresh Studios-Choose Hope-Stencil, stamp and die set. I have two additional stencils for the backgrounds, the hearts are from Honey Bee Stamps and the trellis is from Altenew. The sentiments are from SU and Paper Roses. I used Oxide inks and clear Nuvo drops.

I reluctantly will put this set away for a while, as I am sure you have seen just about enough of it.

I hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and join us for this simple and fun challenge. The Design Team and our guest have made some beautiful cards.

Take care, Nanc’

Guest Designer @ATSAM

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today I am really delighted to be guesting over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their #428 Challenge-Birthdays. Thanks for having me, ladies! When I started thinking about my card, I decided to pull out some older dies that have been rather neglected and this hot air balloon has always been a favorite of mine.

Card Details: Cloud stencil and cloud die are from MFT, the balloon die and sentiment are both from SU and retired. The dot EF is from SU as well. I put some glossy accents on the tiny heart on the balloon basket to finish it off.

Now head on over to Addicted to Stamps and More and check out the cards by the fabulous team and join us!

Happy Creating, Nanc’

Pretty Papers

Hello and hope you are doing well, Today’s card doesn’t require any skill or talent, all you need is a pretty pack of paper and some great die-cuts. I really like the Tic Tac Toe Board/Challenge this week and thought I would play along again. This time I am using the center row of; Layers, Patterened Paper and Embellishment.

Card Details: Pink and Main flowers, DSP, and Green foliage are from SU. The greeting is from Stampendous.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello, I have a quick card for you today for the latest challenge over at Global Design Project. It is time to CASE the card they have selected for us below. I was intrigued by it the moment I saw it. I love taking foliage and gathering it on one side of a card so that is what I have done. I thought the double circle was a nice touch in front of the rectangle. My twine is a bit too thick and will make it hard to mail, but I like it.

Card Details: The dies/stamps I have used for this card are a mix of two SU sets-Sunflowers and Forever Fern. The greeting is from Sunny Studios. The DSP is SU as well.

I hope you did something today that brought you joy, Nanc’

Thank YOU!

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls, creative Cecile is our fabulous hostess and she has a very unique and fun photo for us this week. Check it out below!

As soon as I saw this photo I thought speech bubble! So that is what I did.

Card Details: A very quick and easy card to do. The Speech bubble die is ancient and from SU. The greetings are a mix of this and that. At the last minute, I took a black marker and outlined the green background paper to give it some pop.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Mac did with this fun photo! Happy crafting, Nanc’

Happy Birthday-Coneflower

Hello all! Second post today! If you are looking for Just Us Girls please scroll down!

I hope you are doing well! It’s the middle of the month already and time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Sweet Tracey is our hostess this time around and she has picked a wonderful color combo for us. I realized as I was typing this post, that I used the coneflower set from Honey Bee Stamps for my very last card for Color Hues also. Well, there is no denying how much I love that die, now is there?

*Since I first wrote this post I had some time to make another card using this color combination and with something other than the coneflower…LOL.

The DSP did all the work for me and some MFT dies and stamps.

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps, The happy die is MFT the Birthday is from SU. The lattice-die background is from Whimsy Stamps. I used some Oxide Inks to give my flower some added color-depth. I also used gold Nuvo drops for the center of the flower.

Now, If you need some inspiration you must head on over to Color Hues and check out the team’s cards, as they will certainly inspire you!

I hope you find something to do today that brings you joy, Nanc’
