Let’s Celebrate You

Hello, I have a card today for two challenges.  I paired the colors from The Paper Players with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I still am enjoying my new SU set called Celebrate Sunflowers. In fact, my entire card is from SU. A little Copics and then enamel dots finished it off.

Thanks for popping in and I hope this post finds you well! HUGS, Nanc’

Just for You

Hello, I had some time yesterday to make a card for the new CAS(E) this Sketch…sketch.  I am loving a new to me stamp set I got from SU called Celebrate Sunflowers.  I guarantee you will be seeing this stamp set and or matching die set a lot in the near future. it is really fabulous. I started off coloring the sunflowers with my Copics with a touch of colored pencils too.  As for the butterflies, those are from Pretty Pink Posh and the sentiment is from MFT. I had this piece of cardstock already stamped with the text from Simon says Stamps waiting to be used.  As I was laying out all my pieces, I thought it looked a little plain all by itself. Mind you, I had already glued it to the back of the black frame when I decided to ink it up.  I used a piece of acetate, made myself a mask and carefully inked it with a bit of Oxide inks. I think that did the trick and made it far more interesting.

I will also be linking this up over at Darnell’s NBUS.

I hope you are having a wonderful day, however you have chosen to spend it. Nanc’

Wedding Card

Today is Monday and instead of reporting to work, I am beginning a new chapter in this thing called life.  Now I can say I am “officially” retired.  So far so good! LOL My favorite part of my day is between the hours of 6-8 am. During that time you can find hubby and I enjoying the quietness of the new day while sipping our coffee and chatting about whatever we find on our electronic devices that we find worth sharing with one another. There is no television and it’s just peaceful. Now, this doesn’t have to occur on just weekends, holidays, or summer vacation but each and every day, and I am really excited about that! Squeal!

Speaking of new beginnings…Nothing says new start more than a wedding card and that is what I have for you today!  I am playing along with The Paper Players challenge today.

I made this card using Stampin Up products for the puzzle pieces, rectangle die, and sentiment.  The bow tie which is a tad hard to see is from Paper Smooches. It’s part of a bow missing the ribbons hanging down. For the girl puzzle piece, I used very small pearls.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Hmm….what shall I do?  Nanc’

Travel

Hello, It’s August first! It’s really hard to believe! It has been a fast year despite all the downtime we all have had at home.   However, now it’s the weekend and time for Word Week at Just Us Girls.  The word as you can see is Travel. I have a graduation card for you using the fun Stampin Up Hot Air Balloon die. I love this set but never pull it out to use very often. Each section of the balloon comes in pieces so you can change the colors as you go down before you put on the overlay die.  I hope you can see and understand what I mean.  The clouds are from MFT.  I used lots of dimensionals to lift my balloon into the sky.

We have a new guest joining us this week and it is Lisa Elton!  Welcome, Lisa!  So glad to have you along!

Come join us at Just Us Girls we would love to have you. Nanc’

Thanks Kindly

Hi,  Hope you are doing well and staying safe the best you can these days.  We have a great color trio starting today at Just Us Girls. The colors as you see are Light Grey, Teal, and Mustard. Today’s card is a CASE of this card Here.  I love taking a card I admire and creating it myself, and I personally think it’s a great compliment to the original designer.

I just love this Stampin Up set called Bloom and Grow. I didn’t do my card in the most logical way.  I am having a run of stupidity this week, and It’s becoming a serious problem.  I wish I was kidding.  I am going to refer to it as Pandemic brain. I think we could collectively use that excuse for just about anything that goes wrong in our life these days. Join me! Don’t take the fall alone. LOL

Anyways, as for my stupidity, I ended up sponging the background last instead of first and it caused a little bit of a muted look on my flowers. I used Copics and the sentiment is also Stampin Up.

I hope you pop on over to JUGS and join us! The team did another great job this week.  Take care, Nanc’

Long and Skinny

Hello,  Have we got a popular and fun challenge for you today over at Just Us Girls! Slimline cards are all the rage lately and I must say I am a fan. I had a great time making my colorful coffee panel and was extremely happy with how it came out. I am not a huge fan of how the rest of the card came together but it’s okay. Hubby said I screwed up with the vertical green banner die. I didn’t tell him I agreed. 😉 Most all of my supplies are from Verve. One of my favorite sets for sure. Even the heart die is Verve. I used the emboss resist technique with Oxide Inks to blend my panel.  Below is the panel before I covered it.

You have to come over to JUGS and join us.  We would love to have you and you may even end up being selected as our Chic of the Week.

Take care, Nanc’

You are Simply Wonderful

I thought the Sketch this week over at CAS(E) this Sketch looked quite fun so I joined along. I found these flowers already inked up in my bits and boxes drawer and thought they were too pretty not to use.  I then opened a new pack of 6×6 paper that I just got from Stampin Up ( yes, I know I know I said I was trying to use up my designer paper and not buying anymore-forget that I said that….LOL) and it just so happened to have two pieces of the exact colors of the flowers inside. Score! So needless to say this card came together rather quickly!  I did flip the sketch and hope it’s okay that my sentiment is very large. A couple of small heart punches and I was done.

The flowers were heat embossed and sponged with Oxide inks and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.

Thanks for the visit….HUGS! Nanc’

Rainbow

 

Hello, Happy Fourth of July!!  It’s also time for another challenge at Just Us Girls.  The word we have for you this week is Rainbow.  We all could use some rainbows right about now to brighten our moods. At least I sure could. Speaking of brightening the mood you should check out the DT’s cards, there is such a lovely array of different ideas from the team.  We also have Trina joining us as our Guest Designer, and you know her cards are always fabulous!  Welcome, Trina!

I have a mix of companies on my card. MFT-rainbow and heart, Lawn Fawn-clouds and sun, and SU- Embossing folder and sentiment.

Please come to JUGS and join us we would love to have you!  Nanc’

with Sympathy

 

I have a quick and easy card for you today.  That all began with the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  When I need a quick Sympathy card this is one of my go-to cards.  A little bit of Designer Paper and these great SU products and it comes together pretty fast. I have added a few Nuvo drops too.

I hope you have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it, Nanc’

Father’s Day Card

I have a quick simple card for you today using a new to me stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  I needed some Father’s Day cards for the store and thought these would be quick and fun to do. I am going to link this up over at CASology in hopes it’s CAS enough. The speckled background behind my panels was made with a very old Stampin Up stamp. I colored my images with colored pencils and the letters are from MFT.

I will also be linking this up over at Darnell’s NBUS.

I hope you are having a great day, Nanc’
