CAS Christmas

Hello Friends, I have another Christmas card to share with you today and it’s for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge.  The word they have for us this month is Poinsettia. I have this intricate poinsettia stamp from Verve that I just love and thought it might do the trick. I heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I decided to pair it up with this bold Alcohol ink paper that I made a few weeks ago. Besides being bow challenged it came out alright. I am going to put my Christmas greeting on the inside. The one inch stitched square die is from SU. The outer rectangle is from MFT.

I am also linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s time for Clean and Simple.

Here is another one I made in a different color. 

Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

Splash Watercolouring

Hello,  Had some fun making these great backgrounds for the July CAS Watercolour Challenge.  The challenge was to use Splash Watercolouring on your project. This technique is always so fun and the results are generally good.  I can’t say I have never ended up with a muddy mess before… but haven’t we all! LOL. I have had these cute little Whales colored and on my desk for a couple of weeks now, and it was about time I got them back in the ocean where they belong.  The were colored with both Copics and Prismas.

I decided to get out my MFT wave die and cut up the fun background I created. The clouds are from SU. The stamp set is from Sunny Studios and called Oceans of Joy.  I am a bit addicted to my Wonky Rectangles from MFT if you haven’t noticed. I added some clear Nuvo drops but they are hard to see.

I am also going to link my card up over at CAS Mix UP Card Challenge ( thanks to Nancy L.), where they have asked us to Color our die cuts, stamping and your choice. Hopefully mixing both watercolors, copics and colored pencils will do the trick.

Below is the other card I made as well. I decided to leave the watercoloured panel alone for this card.

Do something creative every day! Nanc’

Ho Ho Ho

I am trying to get caught up on my goal of having 24 Christmas cards done by now this summer ( this is number 7) LOL, and I thought the sketch over at CASE this Sketchlooked kinda fun this week, so I played along. I might have taking the sketch a bit too far, but I felt after I placed my circles it was just a bit to plain.  I so struggle with CAS cards and don’t know when to say when.

The penguin stamp is a wooden block stamp that I have had for eons, this week I am trying to give some of my older stamps some much deserved attention.

Some card details: Colored with Copics and Prismas, scalloped circles are Spellbinders, the Sentiment is SU, the Ric Rac looking border and scalloped rect. is from MFT.

Hope you have a fabulous day! Nanc’

I love you….

Hello, Have we got a fun Inspiration Photo for you all this week at Just Us Girls! Isn’t it the cutest owl you have ever seen?  Well, made out of fruit that is! LOL. I really enjoyed getting out my Owl punch from SU to put this card together.  I also, used my MFT cloud stencil for the background and this fun stamp set that I have used for my branch and blossoms is from Darcies. The sentiment, leaves and tags are from my Verve collection. The leaves aren’t uniform, I just realized….some are round and some are pointed. LOL The leaf paper is from Gina K.

I am also linking my card up over at The Card Concept where they have the cutest owl pillows as their inspiration. I pulled out the bright colors for my blossoms and of course the owls themselves. I guess you would call this Clean and Layered.

I sure hope this adorable picture inspires you and I will see you in our gallery at Just Us Girls.  Take care, Nanc’

Trees at Twofer!

I have wanted so badly to join in the fun over at the Twofer Challenge this month, and couldn’t seem to settle on the perfect stamp. Then I came across a never used stamp set from Altenew, that I completely forgot I had.  They so happen to be trees!  Apple trees actually. It was fate, I tell you!  If you aren’t familiar with the Twofer Challenge you have to go check it out!  You take their theme of the month and make two completely different cards using the same stamp/ die or what have you. Darnell and the team are fabulous!

On the Elephant card I used the tops of the tree to make the clouds, the grass, bushes, and to color my balloon. Here is a picture of the stamp set so you may understand it better.  On the tree card, it was a bit tricky to line the stamps up perfectly even after lots of practice.  I think they look pretty good, but the yellow one is the best!

I so appreciate your visit.  Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Some Card details: Tree card-Altenew Apple Tree set, SU stitched rectangles, SU Thank You sentiment, Cuttlebug-Dot EF, Tag-Spellbinders

 Elephant card- MFT-Adorable Elephants, Wonky Rectangles and Sun-stencil, Sentiment-Verve

A Good Egg!

I have a quick card for you today. It’s similar to one I have done before and liked so much, I thought I would do it again.  I also needed a thank you card and thought this would do just fine.  All the products that I have used are from Stampin Up.  I chose to use colored pencil for my medium.  It also qualifies for the 30 Day coloring challenge day 19!

I am linking this card up with the Paper Players where the challenge is Birds.

Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Happy 62nd Birthday!

DSC_0030

Hello, Today’s card is for Color Week at Just Us Girls. It’s nothing special but it fits the challenge just the same.  I needed a specific masculine card for a friend and this is all I could come up with.  Masculine cards are so tough!  I have chosen grey as my 3rd color choice. I always enjoy these type of challenges where you can throw in your own color.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see what my team and our talented Guest Hannelie chose for their 3rd color!

Take care, Nanc’

This Little Piggy…

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start! Today over at Just Us Girls our word of the week is Outside.  Bobby our DT member always comes up with the best challenges. This little piggy set is one I get a kick out of every time I pull it out. His face remind me of my childhood when I was obsessed with Charlotte’s Webb. In Elementary School my best friend Edie and I sang a Medley of songs from the movie in a talent show. I can still sing them all till this day.  Sorry about that….Focus Nancy! LOL I colored this cute little guy with Prisma Colored Pencils and did some ink stamping for the grass and sky.  In my Stampin Up club we did this type of stand up card and I thought it would be fun to do it again.

Before I go, I would like to welcome our new Guest this month and a fellow card maker and friend that I simple adore… Hannelie Bester

Welcome Hannelie!  I am so glad you are with us this month!  If you aren’t familiar with her work, you are in for a real treat!

Have an awesome day, Nanc’

Patterned Paper!

Hello Everyone, We have a fun an quite easy topping this time around over at Seize the Birthday. All you have to do is use patterned paper on your card and or project. I just went through ALL of my paper a few weeks back and purged some that I have no idea why I bought in the first place. LOL I brought a huge stack to school and gave it to the Pre-K teachers, they were in hog heaven.  The paper I used on this card is from Stampin Up, and one that I thought was still pretty enough. LOL Isn’t if funny how are tastes change over time?  One minute you are crushing on teal and the next minute it’s purple. Well, I am a huge fan of teal and I thought it paired nicely with yellow and brown.

Anyhoozal, My supplies for this card are either; Stampin Up-paper, circle die, intricate floral die and floral stamp, MFT- flowers, Verve-sentiment.

Please come check out the rest of my teams fabulous cards, along with our Surprise Party Guest SonjaK! They are something special!

Take care, One more week of school! WoohOOOO! Nanc’
