Celebrate Your Day

 

Hello,  Today’s card was first inspired by the Monthly Mix over at Gina K. Designs.  The talented Karen Hightower has asked us to use Coral (or Orange) as the dominant color on our card and or project. I don’t make a lot of cards in orange, so this intrigued me right away, not to mention her own card was fabulous and so inspiring too. I am also going to link my card up over at the Rainbow Card Challenge (a new challenge site that I stumbled upon) where they have the same color this month.

Here is a bit of info on my card. The background butterfly stamps, vase and flowers are from Gina K. Designs, the rectangle dies are SU, and the sentiment is from Verve.  The images where embossed with white embossing powder, and I water colored my vase and flowers.

I so appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’

Hello Sweet Friend

Hello,  Yes I have another card for you today.  I know…crazy huh! I love being home a bit too much.  Today’s card is for the CAS Stencil challenge. I love that Loll created this challenge, so that I may use my stencils more, and not forget about them as I often do. Thanks Loll!!!   When I was making my other card that I posted a few days ago with the same stencil, I made this one also using a different color of Dylusion Spray, Cherry Pie. In the bottle it appears to be more of a pink, but comes out red. It sure gives a great punch and so simple to do.  The sentiment is from SU and the added flowers are made with a MS punch.

Here is a picture of the spray by Ranger if you have never heard of it.  Thanks for the visit and happy stamping! Nanc’

You are Amazing….

Hello, Today’s card is something that has been keeping me up at night. LOL Today, I finally put it together. It’s quite a mix of different stamp sets along with different challenges.  The inspiration all started when I stumbled across Laurie’s Win it Wednesday challenge over at Papertrey Ink. She asked us to use our favorite color.  That wasn’t too hard, as I gravitate to green quite often, as it’s the largest folder of scraps I have in my scrap binder, and I love using Black card bases as well! Then I realized that Time Out Challenges was looking for something Retro this week, and finally over at Inspirational Challenge the word is TEXT.  So there you have it a THREEFER!! LOL See why it was keeping me awake. LOL

Here is a quick reference to my supplies: Bo Bunny DP, SU- Text You Later and Thoughtful Banners, telephone is from Papertrey Ink, the Paper die cut is from Paper Smooches.

I so appreciate your visits as of late.

Take care and happy stamping,  Nanc’

LOVE you…

Hello,  Today I am linking my card up over at Freshly Made Sketches and CAS Mix Up Challenges. My sentiment is a little bit more to the right than it should be, and I extended the underneath color to the right as well for balance, so I hope that’s ok.  The blending didn’t come out so well, so I added some splatters to distract your eyes. LOL The heart paper is from SU and does a resist when you ink it up…so fun, the YOU sentiment is from Neat and Tangled, and the Love die is from SSS.  It’s hard to see the dimension on my card as it was dreary when I took the photo…so I hope it’s enough for the challenge.

I so appreciate your visits and Happy Stamping! Nanc’

You Make Me Smile…

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! We have a fun Color Combo for you this week at Just Us Girls. Pink, Red and White!  My card came together very quickly! I love this new set from SU…it’s called wishing You Well. The sentiment is also from SU and comes from the Colorful Season’s set. Both rectangles are MFT.  Please come on over to JUGS and join us!  We would love to have you!

I really appreciate all of your visits and your sweet comments.

Take care, Nanc’

JOY

Happy Weekend! Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend Week.  The Trend that Carol chose for us is Wood. I feel like I cheated a bit, as the only thing I have on my card that is wooden is a star that I have stained with ink and decorated to look like a Christmas Cookie. I know…epic fail on my part. I do like the way this card came together though. I used a JOY die and a sentiment from MFT and the fun paper is from SU.

Please head on over to Just Us Girls, where I can assure you, the team did a little bit more than I with this challenge.  Nanc’

Love is in the Air

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start.  It’s February, and time to get out those Love theme stamps.  The card I have for you today is for The Paper Players where they have a Love inspired theme for us to get inspired by and over at Time Out Challenges they also have a Love themed photo too. You can’t have a Valentine card without red somewhere….Right? I have had this SU set for over a month or two now and have been waiting for February to give it a try.  I can tell it will be one I will be using again and again, and I haven’t even used one of the dies that comes in the set that is a complete puzzle. Fun Fun!

Nearly all the products are SU and the DP is Bo Bunny. Isn’t it gorgeous? The large stitched rectangle is MFT.

I am so glad you stopped by! Nanc’

Love YOU!

Hello there,  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a new challenge starting and the word Ina has for us this week is LOVE!  Easy huh?  I stepped out of the box a bit and decided to do something that wasn’t red, which is the typical color we all think of when you hear that word. I also would like to welcome out guest designer…Lisa Elton, https://mypapertales.blogspot.com/.  She will be with us all month! Welcome Lisa, we are thrilled you are joining us!

Here is a bit about my card!  Flower is very dear to me and is from Verve! One of my first stamps I ever bought from Julee. The leaves are a punch from SU and then embossed for added texture. The flowers were colored using the smooshing technique and oxide inks. I think they came out great! The heart die is from MFT, the love die is from Neat and Tangled and the you is Simon Says Stamps. The background was lightly stenciled.

I am so happy you paid me a visit.  If you are creating this week…please won’t you join us! Nanc’

Black and White

Hello, I am so glad you stopped by! We have a new topping starting over at Seize the Birthday today!  The topping is Black and White and was selected by Barbara. I don’t know how you feel about that particular combo of colors, but to me there is always something so striking about black and white.  Great idea Barb!

My card is very simple and was made with mostly Stampin Up products and a bit of MFT.  Please come over and check out what my fabulous team and our guest Julie did this week at STB, it’s sure to inspire you!

Have a wonderful day! Nanc’

Masculine…Thinking of You

Hello, I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and I have a nautical theme for you for Photo Week. I never make near enough masculine cards…do you? I struggle with them so much! I sponged the background softly with Oxide inks and used colored pencil for the water! The sentiment and stamps are from SU.

We have two Guest Designers this week at Just Us Girls ( Cindy and Janet) and a fabulous array of cards! Come by and check them out! Nanc’
