Anything but a Card

 

Hello,  I know Halloween has passed, but I knew what I created last month for my Stampin Up ladies would work perfectly for this week’s challenge at Just Us Girls. I made 25 of these to hand out after club where I was the hostess.  I found this idea over on Pinterest.

Here are a few details:  The hair was made with MFT-grass, I used punches for all my circles, a little ink distressing, corner rounding and ribbon and I was done.

Come check out all the amazing projects this week at JUGS!

Grateful Heart

Hello, We have a perfect Fall photo for you this week at Just Us Girls that is sure to inspire you!  This card may look a tad familiar if you are one of my avid followers.  I made a card very similar to this one a few weeks back and I loved that one so much I had to make another, especially once I saw the photo Bobby had selected for us. This card is in the running for the most favorite card of mine to date. I truly love it! I did the smooshing technique on watercolor paper for the background of my leaves.  The veins of the leaves are made out of gold sparkle paper. It is so lovely! The two tags are made from the same. I decided to distress the edges of the crumb cake paper and the ivory sentiment paper.  The sentiment is heat embossed. A few gold Nuvo drops too.  The leaves and small rectangle are SU and the sentiment is Verve. The large rounded corner rectangle and banners are MFT. I am also linking my card up at 2 other challenges. Time Out Challenges, the word is grateful.  Inspire Create, the word is die cuts.

  Before I go I would like to thank Chris for being with us this month.  It was great having you back on the team, it was just like old times.

Go and create an amazing day!  Nanc’

Get Well

Hello,  Today’s card is for Two Challenges- The Color Throwdown and CAS Watercolour. I just had to get out one of my all-time favorite SU sets as soon as I saw the theme at CAS Watercolour was Maple Leaf. I started off by doing the smooshing technique with two different colors of Purple on Watercolour paper. Next, I cut out the leaves…both solid and the outline ones.  Last, I had to incorporate the grey and decided a little sparkle paper would do the trick just fine. The Get Well sentiment is SU. A few rhinestones and I was done.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Happy Wonderful Christmas

Hello there, I hope you have found some time to be creative this week. Today’s cards are for the CAS Stencil Challenge this month. They asked us to stencil onto Patterned Paper. As you will see in the photo below, I made my own stencil using a Simon Says Leafy Circle die that I have been ignoring as of late. I paired that with SU stamps, and coordinating die-cuts. The berries were made with a hole punch.  Very quick and easy cards for sure.  Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

With Gratitude…

Hello, It may not feel like fall in my neck of the woods quite yet…or ever…LOL, but it didn’t stop me from getting out my fall decorations today along with my favorite fall leaves from SU to make a card. Before I got to work, I needed to go find some challenge blogs to play along with.  I sometimes feel like a challenge blog addict. LOL If I was retired I think I would start another one myself!  The two I am joining today are The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge, where I have chosen the row going down (FALL, ORANGE, and LEAVES) and Happy Little Stampers (ANYTHING GOES WITH DIES.) Hold onto your hats folks…..I am about to say something a bit rare!! I am extremely happy with the way this card came out.  In fact, so happy that I made two of them, and one I will be sharing later next month with a JUGS challenge.

Card details: SU-cardstock, sentiment, and leaves. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for the leaves. Then did the outline in gold to match the embossed sentiment. I distressed my kraft cardstock with some oxide ink. MFT-banner die and Mod Rectangles. Gold Nuvo drops to finish it off!

So happy you stopped by, Have a creative week! Nanc’

Critters and or Chickens

I am down to the wire but wanted to be sure to play along over at the Twofer Challenge.  I love this challenge and do everything in my power to play along when I can. The word Darnell has for us this month is Critters.  That leaves it wide open, as the definition is “any living creature”, hence my above chickens.  It was nice creating after dinner last night after a long Monday at work. Stamping is not something I do a lot during the week, but it was very relaxing last night and maybe I should try it more often. It helped that hubby made dinner too.

I should have left well enough alone, but unfortunately decided to outline the hey chick in brown.  Looks terrible. 😦 Such is life! 

The first card is for a good friend of mine that is need of a pick me up. I am the tall chicken In the back, as she is not even 5 feet tall. LOL The second card is a Birthday card with the sentiment on the inside.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Card details: 2-Stampin up stamp sets, EF is also SU, Dies are a mix of Sizzix, MFT and SU. Copic markers and colored pencil, and the button is from MFT. The inspiration came from this card.

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’
