Flowers at Just us Girls

Hello, I am back today with two more cards using that same set that I have been smitten with this past couple of weeks from Pink Fresh Studios. Plus, with tomorrow being Mother’s Day and Just Us Girls‘ Word Week challenge is FLOWERS, I just had to use them one last time.

We also have a brand new guest with us this month at JUGS! I would like to give a warm welcome to Deborah Wheeler. Welcome, Deborah! I am super excited to have you joining us!

Here is my second card!

I am also playing along over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes Stencil Challenge where I am a regular. LOL

A Few Card Details: Pink Fresh Studios-Choose Hope-Stencil, stamp and die set. I have two additional stencils for the backgrounds, the hearts are from Honey Bee Stamps and the trellis is from Altenew. The sentiments are from SU and Paper Roses. I used Oxide inks and clear Nuvo drops.

I reluctantly will put this set away for a while, as I am sure you have seen just about enough of it.

I hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and join us for this simple and fun challenge. The Design Team and our guest have made some beautiful cards.

Take care, Nanc’

Guest Designer @ATSAM

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today I am really delighted to be guesting over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their #428 Challenge-Birthdays. Thanks for having me, ladies! When I started thinking about my card, I decided to pull out some older dies that have been rather neglected and this hot air balloon has always been a favorite of mine.

Card Details: Cloud stencil and cloud die are from MFT, the balloon die and sentiment are both from SU and retired. The dot EF is from SU as well. I put some glossy accents on the tiny heart on the balloon basket to finish it off.

Now head on over to Addicted to Stamps and More and check out the cards by the fabulous team and join us!

Happy Creating, Nanc’

Pretty Papers

Hello and hope you are doing well, Today’s card doesn’t require any skill or talent, all you need is a pretty pack of paper and some great die-cuts. I really like the Tic Tac Toe Board/Challenge this week and thought I would play along again. This time I am using the center row of; Layers, Patterened Paper and Embellishment.

Card Details: Pink and Main flowers, DSP, and Green foliage are from SU. The greeting is from Stampendous.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello, I have a quick card for you today for the latest challenge over at Global Design Project. It is time to CASE the card they have selected for us below. I was intrigued by it the moment I saw it. I love taking foliage and gathering it on one side of a card so that is what I have done. I thought the double circle was a nice touch in front of the rectangle. My twine is a bit too thick and will make it hard to mail, but I like it.

Card Details: The dies/stamps I have used for this card are a mix of two SU sets-Sunflowers and Forever Fern. The greeting is from Sunny Studios. The DSP is SU as well.

I hope you did something today that brought you joy, Nanc’

Thank YOU!

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls, creative Cecile is our fabulous hostess and she has a very unique and fun photo for us this week. Check it out below!

As soon as I saw this photo I thought speech bubble! So that is what I did.

Card Details: A very quick and easy card to do. The Speech bubble die is ancient and from SU. The greetings are a mix of this and that. At the last minute, I took a black marker and outlined the green background paper to give it some pop.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Mac did with this fun photo! Happy crafting, Nanc’

Happy Birthday-Coneflower

Hello all! Second post today! If you are looking for Just Us Girls please scroll down!

I hope you are doing well! It’s the middle of the month already and time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Sweet Tracey is our hostess this time around and she has picked a wonderful color combo for us. I realized as I was typing this post, that I used the coneflower set from Honey Bee Stamps for my very last card for Color Hues also. Well, there is no denying how much I love that die, now is there?

*Since I first wrote this post I had some time to make another card using this color combination and with something other than the coneflower…LOL.

The DSP did all the work for me and some MFT dies and stamps.

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps, The happy die is MFT the Birthday is from SU. The lattice-die background is from Whimsy Stamps. I used some Oxide Inks to give my flower some added color-depth. I also used gold Nuvo drops for the center of the flower.

Now, If you need some inspiration you must head on over to Color Hues and check out the team’s cards, as they will certainly inspire you!

I hope you find something to do today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Card Details: My card is a total CASE of this card HERE by Barbara Anders. I have used MFT flower stamps, Friend die is from Honey Bee Stamps and the Happy Birthday is from SU. A few black Nuvo drops that don’t seem to want to puff anymore to finish it off.

Now head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out all the cards by my fabulous team and guest, and I sure hope they will inspire you to join us!

Take care and I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Look at the bright side…

Hello friends, Things are a bit hectic here but in between cleaning out closets and putting my house back together after having two bedrooms painted I found some time to rest and play along with the challenge going on over at The Paper Players. I knew which card I was going to make as soon as I saw their laughter is the best medicine challenge. The idea came from the sentiment that comes from the stamp set Manatee-rific by Newton’s Nook-Floaty Potato. LOL I will never call a Manatee by its given name ever, ever again. Also, we all need to remember when life is hard or if we are having a bad day, that we could in fact be a Floaty Potato! Oh wait, that doesn’t sound so bad after all! ;). No worries, no stress, and feeding on seagrass all day.

I don’t have very many funny stamp sets in my stash, so I had to create the text on the front of my card with my computer.

Card 2– I don’t care for this one as much. The added dies don’t look like they belong.

I will also be linking up over at Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: The Stamp and stencil are both from Newton’s Nook. The little dies on card 2 are from MFT. I used Oxide inks for the background and some colored-pencil and Copics to color with. I made the free-from shape myself with a piece of acetate. The speech bubble die is from SU.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope whatever you do today it brings you joy and you laugh a little too! Nanc’

Just for you Friend

Hello, It is April 1st already, No Fooling! And we all know that on the first of the month it’s time for the Next Hues of Colors @ Color Hues! Sheri has picked a color combo that most of the card makers in blog land are certainly going to just love, I know I do. I know there are some non-pink people out there, for some odd reason. However, for this challenge, you should just embrace it and live a little. LOL

I do love the way my card turned out if I was to be brutally honest! You just can’t go wrong with that Honey Bee Cone Flower.

I am also joining in the fun over at Just Add Ink where the challenge is Choose Two-Flower and Patterned Paper.

Card Details: Cone Flower-Honey Bee Stamps, circle dies are from SY, the Just for you…I am uncertain and the friend is also Honey Bee Stamps. Love this DSP that I found in my stash and didn’t know I had. I also used Oxide Inks to color the flower. Clear Dewdrops are from Honey Bee Stamps, and I only use them on special cards.

Now run on over to Color Hues and check out the work from my wonderful Design Team and our two guests- Carol and Trina, cause all their work is amazing.

Take care and do something today that brings you JOY and I am not fooling, Nanc’

Embossing Folders @JUGS

Hello, It is Saturday already and time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Vicky has chosen an easy Trend for us to enjoy and hopefully you will too! All you need to do is use an Embossing Folder. I think the hardest part would be to decide which one. LOL If you are anything like me you have at least 20 to choose from.

I am also going to play along over at Happy Little Stampers – Die Cut Challenge, as I often do.

Card Details: Embossing Folder-Stampin Up, the onesie and button dies are from MFT and very old, and the greeting is from Stampin Up. Postage die is Hero Arts. I adore the DSP, that I believe I found at Hobby Lobby.

Now, I hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and check out the cards by my fabulous teammates and our guest and join us! Take care, Nanc’
