It’s Just a Number!

 

Hello my friends,  Hope your week is being good to you! Today’s card is for the next topping over at Seize the Birthday! Our topping that Collen has chosen is Numbers. I got out one of my favorite stencils and my oxide inks to make my background.  Then I found the perfect sentiment from SU to finish it off. I think the wonky rectangles from MFT are so fun to use too. 

Hope you will come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the rest of the DT’s cards and help us in welcoming our newest Surprise Party Guest…Annie from Pawsitive Thoughts by Annie!  We are so happy you are with us Annie! 

Take care, Nanc’

You are my Missing Piece

Hello,  Back again with another card today this one if for the Fusion Card Challenge where I opted on just the sketch this time.  This SU puzzle piece set is so much fun to use. I paired it with this beautiful paper from Bo Bunny.  Added some little hearts and rhinestones and I was done.

Hope you are having a creative day! Nanc’

Mr.& Mrs.

Hello,  Today’s card is for the Less is More challenge using Metallics.  Anything with a bit of shimmer is so hard to photograph, and this card is nothing but shine so it was a real challenge. It looks ten times better in person!

Card Details: SU stamps, Silver embossing powder on all stamps and the Ribbon Heart die is from Poppy Stamps.  Even the wire ribbon has shimmer. The smaller hearts are punched out of the same glittery background paper as the large ribbon heart die. Added some rhinestones for more shine.

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc’

Thanks A LOT

Hello,  Today’s card is for a very fun and interesting sketch over at Just Add Ink. Before, I put my leaf stamps and dies away, I decided to make one more card using the small leaf stamp that comes with this set. Yet again, I used the smooshing technique to make the background colors on my larger leaves. This was a fun and simple card to do. The sentiment is from Verve.

Hugs, Nanc’

My Favorite Fall Leaves


Second Post of the Day! Both for Freshly Made Sketches!

Since it was the first day of Fall on the Starbucks calendar that is, I went and got myself the first Pumpkin Latte of the season yesterday. YUM!!  When I got back, I decided why not make a fall birthday card using my all-time favorite leaf dies from SU. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for my fall leaves. The background is a script SU embossing folder that I put ink on with a sponge dauber after I embossed it.  I wanted more of a worn look. The victorian scalloped border and outline of the leaves were made with gold paper that doesn’t pick up well in the photo. The sentiment is from Gina K. The larger white rectangle also has the EF script on it but doesn’t show up in the photo either. I last decided to cover the stems of my leaves with the sentiment panel…it almost looks like a pocket.

Linking up again with Freshly Made Sketches! 

Here in Florida we are patiently waiting for Dorian to make the projected right turn.  I pray he spares all of the U.S.

Take care,  Nanc’

Square Card

Hello, Boy do I have a CAS card for you today! In fact, it’s so simple I feel as if I am cheating.  It’s for our new challenge over at Seize the Birthday where our topping is Square cards.  The flowers are from SU and the Happy Birthday die is from Memory Box.  The die-cut is one of those purchases that you wish you hadn’t made. Why you may ask…. I don’t use it, plus it’s just way too big in my opinion. I have cut it off of the circle before and that helps a smidgen. The only thing I like about this card is the colors.  I promise that the next post the card won’t be so lame. LOL

I would like to take a minute and thank Su Mohr for being such a fabulous guest! This is her last post with us, and I really enjoyed having her along for the ride.

My teammates did a much better job than I did this time with our topping. So if you are looking for inspiration, head on over to the blog, and I am sure someone there will inspire you!

Take care,  Nanc’

One Layer

 

Hello, Over at Addicted to CAS they want us to make a one layer card, so that is what I have for you today!  I just love the look of ink blending using Oxide inks and sticky notes to get a straight edge. It’s quick, easy to do and usually has great results. The stamp set is from SU and I really love it a lot, I just wish it came with dies.  I really want a flamingo set with die cuts, but can’t justify having two flamingos. Do you all feel that way about buying similar stamps twice?

Thanks for the visit and have a great day! Nanc’

Dad or Masculine

Hello, Yesterday afternoon after the chores were completed, I got out one of my favorite SU sets and made a masculine card for a co-workers father.  She said he loves fishing, so I knew that was going to be super easy. Before I went to my studio and went to work, I found that Creative with Stamps had a masculine challenge going on and I thought …SCORE!!  Love when that works out! The label dies and small letters are MFT. This card came together very quickly as it was inspired by this card here!  I made the ovals and circles with a stencil and some SU ink.  I am going to keep this quick and easy design in my arsenal for sure.

Thanks for stopping in,

Nanc’

Gotta Love Tulips!

We have a Photo Challenge over at Just Us Girls that has so much going on you are bound to get inspired by one part or another. It’s always fun to see how different each of the DT members and guest cards are, and how each one of us is inspired differently.  Right away when I saw all the florals on the table I knew I was going to get out one of my old SU sets that I really enjoy.  I was drawn to the color orange and green that is evident throughout the photo and the pattern along the fence at the top of the picture.  That is where my triangular background came to be. I used my white background and scalloped die to pick up the rounded edges of the doilies on the table.  I used gold sequins to replica the round decorations on the fence. I used Copics and Colored pencils as my medium.

Please come by and check out the rest of my teammate’s cards and join us! Nanc’

Butterflies is the Topping…

Hello friends,  I am still alive after day three of school. I can’t say it’s been a breeze, but I am still breathing and we haven’t lost any kiddos yet. JK. Today’s card is for the next topping at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is Butterflies and it was chosen by Barbara this time around. My card has lots of layers but went together very quickly.

Card Details: DP is Bo Bunny, the butterfly is Saavy Dies, the Button and banner are MFT, the EF is SU.

That is all I have, as my bedtime has been exceptionally early this week!

Hope you will come by STB and join us!  My team and guest Su did an amazing job! Nanc’
