Wedding on the Brain!

 

Hello Friends,  I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and we are in full fledge wedding planning at our house, so the Photo I was inspired by this week, fits my mind set perfectly! I hope you enjoy it!  Remember, you don’t have to make a Wedding card per say, however the photo inspires you is all you need to do!  All the products you see here are from SU. This card was very tough to photograph because of the shimmery silver paper and the silver embossing powder, but what can you do! Please come on over and join my fellow teammates and I this week!

Take care, Nanc’

Happy Graduation!

Hello Friends, It’s Wildcard Week at Just Us Girls and Judy is our hostess!  I love the challenge she picked out for us…it’s Paper Piecing! Since graduation time is fast approaching I thought it was time to get a head start. This card was so much fun to put together. I started with this AWESOME paper pack from Stampin Up. The boat and tag die is from Verve and the Happy Graduation is from SU too. My waves were made with my Creative Memories cutter and as you probably can tell, I can’t get enough of my MFT stitched rectangles!  I think I use them on just about every card!  I hope you will consider joining us this week at JUGS! I also want to say a quick farewell to Laurie, she has been with us as a guest this month and has done such a fabulous job! Happy Crafting! Nanc’

Happy New Home!

Hello Friends, It’a Photo Week over at Just Us Girls and here is how the photo inspired me. I must say I looked at this photo at least a half a dozen times before an idea came to me.  The first thing that stuck out with me in this photo was how prefect the home looked, as if it was New or in a showroom. (not lived in like mine for sure) LOL Then I was drawn to all the geometrics on the pillows and carpet.  I also loved the rocking chair and that is where my Khaki color came to be. I knew without a doubt I was going to be incorporating the flowers from the vases in my design also.  Finally, the white walls were mimicked with my brick wall EF.

Thanks so much for coming by and I sure hope to see you over at Just Us Girls sometime this week!  Take care, Nanc’

Two Patterned Papers

Hello Friends, We have a fun Topping for you this time over at Seize the Birthday.  What I have asked the team and our guest Anita to do is to add two patterned papers to their card and or project. Easy peasy huh?  I hope if you are reading this, you will consider joining us sometime over the next two weeks! Plus you must go check out what the team has created!  They are so very talented! For my card…. I mixed and matched a lot of companies. I have MFT (scalloped and border die), Verve (word die and cupcake), Elizabeth Craft Design (candles), and Stampin Up (sentiment).  The paper is from who knows where???  I have so many pieces of scraps that I am determined to put to good use…before they swallow me up alive!  I used some Wink a Stella and some sparkly glitter for the top of my cupcakes!  Can’t have a cupcake without sprinkles!

Take care and happy stamping, Nanc’

Calm Seas Ahead…

Hello Friends,  I made this card a few months ago for a stamping and DT friend whose hubby was having some health problems.  I am happy to report he is home now and doing much better, thank goodness. I started off making a watercolored background, then decided I wanted to make a port hole to spy on my ship. I love the look of it! The image, rhinestones, and the circle die is from SU. The rope was really easy to make, you just have to google it. Last but not least, I cheated and made the sentiment on my computer.

I am hostess this week at Just Us Girls…I would love for you to join me! We also have a new Guest with us this month!  Please come on by and help us welcome Laura Unger.   We are so happy to have you with us Laura!   Happy stamping, Nanc’

Black and White and One more Color.

Hello Friends, It’s the middle of March (Yikes) or time for March Madness, according to hubster, and also time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday.  Today’s topping is Black and White and ONE more color.  I chose to use Kraft as my other color, as I was in need of a Masculine 60th Birthday card for my Brother-in-law.  I am really enjoying this new SU set- Lift Me Up, as you might have noticed! The card that inspired me is HERE!  The team and I would love for you to join us at STB for this fun challenge and you must come on over and see what the team and our guest Anita selected as their pop of color!  Hope to see you there!

Spring Break starts today for me at 3:30!  Yipeeeeeee!  Nanc’

Stencils @ JUGS!

Hello Friends, Maria over at Just Us Girls has a very easy word for us this week.  The word is Stencils. I don’t know about you, but I have a slew of them and am always looking to buy more.  This sun beam stencil I have used on my card today is a must have if you ask me!  Mine happens to be from My Favorite Things however, there are many different variations of them out there. You should try and get one too. I decided to ink mine up on watercolor paper. The rest of my card was made with SU’s new set Lift Me Up.  I just adore this hot air balloon die. What is so cool about this stamp and die cut set is that it has so many pieces. Just take a look at it below! I love the fact that the background of the ballon can be made with so many different shades of paper and cut out individually.  I did just that on my card above.  Thanks for coming by today and checking in with me!  It makes my day when you visit.  Please come by and visit Just Us Girls this week and see what my talented team and guest Nancy have done, and while you are there….join us!  I have a good stampin’ friend that is battling bone cancer and I hope this cheers her up a bit.

Take care, Nanc’
