You’re On My Mind and Hello!

Hello, And Happy Day to you! I have TWO cards for you today for TWO different challenges!  

The first card is for this week over at Just Us Girls.    Vicki has a trend for you that is so much fun to do.  It’s the emboss resist technique. I have this great paper that I have been scarcely using from SU that I decided to use this week. It resists ink! I just love it! I used a mix of companies on this card, as I rarely do…LOL.  The oval is SU, the gorgeous vine and flowers and scalloped rectangle are MFT, and the sentiment is Verve.

The next card is also using the Embossed resist technique along with a stencil for the NEW CAS Stencil Challenge that I am really excited about. I have so many stencils that get ignored, and now I have a reason to use them.  I used a MFT stencil and my Oxide Inks, a Papertrey Ink Stamp set, and my MFT wonky rectangles. Added some sequins and I was done.

Please join us at JUGS this week and check out what my fabulous teammates and Two Guest Designers have done with this challenge and while you are hopping around, go check out the New CAS Stencil Challenge!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Leftovers!

Hello,  If you haven’t been by since the New Year, I’d like to wish you a Happy New Year. If you have…..well, Happy New Year once again!  We have a terrific word for you this week chosen by Sue over at Just Us Girls.  It couldn’t have been more perfect timing, as I just went through my studio and picked up ever bit of scrap that I had saved and categorized them in eight little drawers. (And I save everything) It feels so good to be organized again! I also purged a bunch of old stamps and donated them to a friend….that felt nice as well. This card came together so quickly once I found this scrap piece of DP, things fell into place in mere minutes! The only thing I had to do is stamp a sentiment.

We have two Guests this month over at Just Us Girls that I would like to take the time to welcome. We have Janet Ribet, and Cindy Major.  We are super glad you BOTH will be designing with us this month and look forward to all of your creations.  Now, head on over to JUGS and check out what the team and our guests did with their leftovers!

Happy Creating, Nanc’

Confetti at Seize the Birthday!

Hello and Happy New Year to you! I hope you had a great Holiday Season!  It’s feels really good to be back to card making again, and the topping Colleen has chosen for you over at Seize the Birthday to kick off 2019 is Confetti!  I had the time during my blogging break to purge my studio, boy that felt good!.  While doing so, I found this perfect old SU stamp that I knew would help me with this card.  Love when things come together like that. I decided since I needed a Birthday card so close to the New Year, I would use gold as my focal color. I heat embossed my confetti background, used a Verve sentiment, and the Balloons were punched out of gold paper and embossed with a dotted EF. Added two types of ribbon and I was done!

I hope you will take the time to stop by Seize the Birthday and help me in welcoming our Newest Design Team member Cathy! We are so tickled that you are joining us Cathy and cant wait to see your creations!!  We also have a NEW surprise Party Guest starting with us and her name is Julie!  Welcome Julie, we hope you are as excited as we are that you will be with us the next two months.

Happy creating, Nanc’

Christmas Eve Sky!

Hello, I hope you have all your Christmas cards completed. I am nearly done!  I believe, I enjoy making Christmas cards the most out of any other type of cards!  What about you? What is your favorite card to make? When I am done, who knows, I may even get a jump start on next years, as I have a few other ideas I didn’t get around to.

Here is some info on the cards above. The clouds were made with a MFT stencil and Oxide Inks. The Santa stamp is from Kitchen Sink Stamps, and the leave stamps are SU-on the blue card and I believe Gina K on the purple one. The scalloped heart die and ribbons are from Verve as well.

I am linking these cards up over at Fusion– for that beautiful photo and Inkspirational– where it’s Anything Christmas.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Nanc’

JOY!

 

Hello, I have another CAS Christmas card for you, that was so much fun, and simple to make.  I think I will be making a few more of these before the holidays are over.  I am linking this fun card up over at the CASology blog where the word is North, and Inkspirational blog where it’s Anything Goes Christmas. The JOY die set is MFT. Have a joyful day! Nanc’

Season’s Greetings!

You done with your Christmas cards yet?  Me either! I need about a dozen more, but I will get there, I always do!  Today’s card is a more simple version of one I posted a few weeks ago. You can find that post here. I am linking my card up at The Paper Players this time around where they have a theme of Christmas challenge starting and also over at Inkspirational where it’s Anything Goes Christmas.

The sentiment is from Verve, the wreath and sparkly red paper is SU, the banner die is MFT, and the bow is Paper Smooches.  I heat embossed the greeting and punched out the little holly berries with a hole punch.

Hope you have had or will have an awesome day! Nanc’

Believe!

Hello, I have a CAS card for you today that goes along with the Challenge over at Fusion. I was inspired by the fun sketch and the bold red pillow and the simplicity of the photo.  This cute little stamp set is from my local Stamping store. I couldn’t get the photo of the card to cooperate, so those little dots you see are sparkly silver paper. I used Colored pencil as my medium. The stitched rectangles and paper are from SU.

Hope you are having a great day and find sometime to be creative.  Nanc’

Tags at STB!

Hello,  This time over at Seize the Birthday the topping if you choose to use it, is TAGS. You can make a Tag to stand alone or you may incorporate a tag on a card and or project, like I have done above.  This card has a Halloween vibe to it and it was not my intention at all, so instead of starting over, I just ran with it. In case you have never seen these Leaves before ( LOL) they are from Stampin Up.  The Tag and Birthday greeting are both from a MFT. The background was made with Oxide inks and some black and white paint splatters.  Not the best photo of the card, but it’s already sent, so had to post it as is.

Please come by to Seize the Birthday and check out what my awesome teammates have done. Speaking of Teammates, I would like to say a heartfelt farewell to one of my DT members-Sandy. Sandy, you will be missed so very much.  I am thrilled to have designed alongside you these couple of years, and very grateful I had the opportunity to meet you in person too!  Please, stay in touch! Take care, Nanc’

Wedding Wishes!

Hello, I have a wedding card for you today that goes along with the Special Occasion theme at The Flower Challenge this month. This card is a CASE of this card Here, with a few changes.  Erum makes gorgeous cards and you can check out her blog here. For the background, I first took my SU diagonal stencil and Smoky Slate ink and made a soft background.  Then I got out a neon pink Prisma Colored pencil and a ruler and added some deep dark lines. I really love the look of this. The stamps are from Altenew’s Beautiful Day and the sentiment is from Stampin Up. I watercolored my main flower after I heat embossed it, and used soft colored pencil on the rest. To wrap things up, I did some distressing with the same Smoky Slate. I am pretty happy with the way this came out.   Thanks for coming by and checking on what I have been up to today.  Nanc’

More Leaves-Rustic Fall!

IMG_0520 (1)

TCC101 1031Yes, More Leaves! I warned you that I was gaga over this set! Today’s card was inspired by The Card Concept. I really fell in love with the photo they have this time around.  I was first inspired by the variations of orange on the pumpkins and then pulled the gold paper to replica the brown leaves in the bed of the truck. The white background below my leaves was left intentionally due to the white chickens in the photo.  I think I would define this card as Clean and Layered.  In hind sight, I should have incorporated the navy of the truck too.

I used my Oxide inks and some water to make my background. The sentiment and leave-dies are from Stampin Up.

Thanks for stopping by, Nanc’
