Just Breathe

Hello, I had some time today in between baking and prepping for Thanksgiving to get inky so I went in search of a challenge to join in on.  I found the Inkspirational Challenge and they want us to just Frame It. This card was fun and quick to put together.

Card Details: The Peony stencil is from SSS, the flowers are from SU, and the greeting is from SU.

I am not sure if I will be stamping and or posting anything tomorrow or not so I would like to take a moment and wish all my U.S. friends a Happy Thanksgiving!    I am grateful for ALL of you! 

Hugs, Nanc’

Merry, Merry

Hello, I am back today with two more Christmas cards that I made with the CAS Christmas Card Challenge in mind. The challenge is to use Non-Traditional Christmas colors. I think this peachy color is so pretty! The background paper is from SU and called Flirty Flamingo.

Here is the second card.

 

Card Info: MFT stenciled background. The silver ornaments are from SU. The bow is Paper Smooches. The leaves are Verve The greeting is Verve. The flower is SU.

There you have it! Two very simple cards!

Thanks for stopping in today!

Take care, Nanc’

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! I fell in love with the colors over at The Color Throwdown and have two cards to share with you today.

I have had this adorable snowglobe die from Lawn Fawn for a long time and this is the first I have used it.  Oh my goodness is it fun to put together!  Why did I wait so long? I will be making more that is for sure, so you have been forwarned.  I added the bow from Paper Smooches and his face is the cream color as well.  Had to make sure I got all the colors in. The sentiment is from SU and the background stencil is from MFT.  The majority of my Christmas cards I am making this year will all have the MFT stencil somewhere on them. I made 42 backgrounds altogether using white ink about two months ago and have been whittling the stack down ever since.  So fun and quick with a great empact!

Here is a close up so you can see the glittery snow. 

Below is my second card! I am linking this up over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Over there they want us to use Non-traditional Christmas Colors. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders, the poinsettia is from Impression Obsession and the fern-leaves are SU. The Merry die cut is also SU.

Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it. Nanc’

You Color My World

Hello, It’s Saturday and time for Color Week at Just Us Girls. This card was pretty quick and fun to throw together. I started off by taking my Alcohol Inks and just throwing the colors down with not much thought as I knew I was going to turn them into flowers anyway. Next, I used an Altenew floral in the background that was heat embossed in white. The sentiment is also embossed and it’s from your Next Stamp.  The flowers are from Stampin Up. The leaves are also a SU punch.  My colors came out a little more pastel than they really are but I took the photo in the sun. The weather has been truly fabulous here! 

Hope to see you over at Just Us Girls! Nanc’

CAS Christmas in Florida

Hello, I hope this post finds you well and staying safe and healthy. I have been in CAS Christmas card mass-producing mode and when I saw the challenge over at The Paper Players I knew they would be just perfect for their challenge this week. I wish these cards were for me to giveaway but sadly no…this batch is for both stores. Maybe I will get around to making a set for myself too. I so enjoyed making these and love the way they came out! 

The Stamp set is from Art Impressions and I used Oxide inks for the backgrounds and Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils. The Merry Christmas greeting is from SU. Love the font on that one! 

Thanks so much for your visits I truly really appreciate each and every comment you leave! This is a super busy time for me so I apologize for not reciprocating! 

Take care, Nanc’

Pink and Brown

Hello, Today starts our new challenge over at Color Hues and the colors we have for you are Pink and Brown. These just so happen to be one of my all-time favorite color combinations.  I love how quick this card came together.  I used a couple of Stampin Up die-cut sets for this card.  They are Sunflower and Seasonal Layers.  

As you may imagine the Color Hues Design Team and our guest Susie Moore did another amazing job with the colors.  Come check them out and play along.

Have a really wonderful day, Nanc’

Noel, Peace, and Deck the Halls

Hello friends, Now that ETA is behind us and thankfully with minimal damage, although we did also have 9 inches of rain, and my dad is doing better with his infection, I had a chance to play along with the Colors over at The Paper Players. I sure have missed playing along with them. I thought retirement was supposed to come with all kinds of free time. LOL The colors that they have are perfect for getting more Christmas cards completed, so I decided to make two. 

Card Details: The musical background, the bell die-cuts, and the leaves are from Stampin Up. The bows on the bells are from Paper Smooches. The Sentiments are all Stampin Up. The tag die is MFT. I also used some white paint splatters too which really made the cards come to life. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you and your family are staying safe.  Somehow we will get through this, we just have to keep doing our part! Hugs, Nanc’

Hot Hot Hot

Hello, Today I am playing along with the 2020 Fall/ Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.   If you haven’t checked it out it’s a must! I can’t get over the gallery and all the amazing prizes involved. AMY TSURUTA is amazing for pulling this together! I am so impressed!! My card doesn’t quite resemble fall or winter but I don’t think that was one of the requirements. 

I have had this sweet coffee die set from MFT for quite some time and this is the first card I have made with it. I paired it with a great SU embossing folder and some Verve stamps (HOT) and Heart Border die. The greeting is from MFT. 

I hope you are having a wonderfully creative day! Nanc’

Sending Love

Hello, You may have noticed that things have been quiet here over the past two weeks or so hopefully, life will slow down just a bit and go back to a somewhat slower pace. I won’t go into the long drawn out story but my father needed lots of care when I returned from vacation and things are finally improving. Thank goodness, it was kinda scary there for a little while. So the extra card making that I was doing prior to vacation had come to a complete halt. Today I had a chance to clean my house and stamp a little.  I decided to play along over at Just Add Ink where they want us to only use Stamps, Ink, and Paper. 

This was a quick one layer card using two Stampin Up sets; Lots of Love and What I Love. 

Thanks for the visit and I hope you are having a wonderful day, Nanc’

I often think…

 

Hello, I am here today to bring you my card for the next pair of color at Color Hues. It is our 5th challenge already…where does the time go?

The flower image I have for you today is a digi from Power Poppy. I have been wanting to print and color this blossom for quite some time but was waiting till I finally bought a laser printer to do so. Now, hubby and I are wondering why we didn’t do it eons ago. It prints like a dream and the ink doesn’t dry out!! My friend Barb got me interested in the images over at Power Poppy where she is a DT member.  If you haven’t checked out their site or her site you should. I have linked them both up for you.

After I was done coloring my Cherry Blossom with Copics I just wasn’t happy with the stark white background and decided to turn it into a tag.  That helped some, but not enough. So I decided to do the dot trick with Copics that you have seen me use before. Now I love it! I used some twine, sequins, and a fabulous sentiment from Stampin Up to finish it off. The fun DP is from Stampin Up too and I just love it!

Please come over to Color Hues and check out what the team and our guest JoAnn have done with the colors.  You won’t be disappointed, I guarantee it!

Take care, Nanc’
