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’

Crafty Friends…

Over at TIME OUT Challenges they have a great phrase to inspire you. They call the challenge…Inspired by words.  It’s quite a long phrase, so it has a lot of room for creativity. I knew right away that this Altenew stamp would be the perfect phrase for this challenge. This card was made with a mix of SU, MFT products, and Altenew. Oh, and some Ric Rac…Love that stuff!  I really love that sunflower from SU, and that DP too.

I hope whatever you decide to do today, you enjoy it! Nanc’

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’

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’
