Guesting at Tic Tac Toe

Hello, I am super excited to be guesting this week at The Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Thanks for having me ladies! This week they have another fun Tic Tac Board to inspire you with loads of possibilities. I am a huge fan of this challenge format as it really leaves the creativity so open and loose.

I have selected the top row of Wings, Sky and Square. To explain my choice: My seagull has wings, I have a sky and water background made with Oxide inks, and I have a square window in my design.

I made another card with a bird that also has wings and or flippers…depending on your perception. LOL

I am also linking up my card with the fun over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Die-cut and or Stencil challenge. The stenciling is optional.

Card Details: I used Oxide inks to make my sky and water background and the rest of the products are all MFT. I used Copics and Prismas too.

Please come over to the The Tic Tac Toe Challenge, as the team has some really amazing cards this week to inspire you.

I hope to see you in the gallery!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Happy Birthday at Color Hues

Second post of the day! Please scroll down if you are looking for The Paper Players!

Hello, Here we are to the middle of the month and time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Lindsey has chosen a fabulous color combo for us. My son made a great suggestion the other night when I was asking him about a computer problem I was having, he showed me how to add a little animation to our graphics at Color Hues. I was giddy as a little kid when I was done. It doesn’t take much to make me happy! And it’s fun to liven things up once in awhile! What do you think?

Card Details: All dies and or stamps are from Stampin Up and the DSP-who knows!

As I always say but is so very true…the Design Team and our guest Janet did an incredible job with these colors…please come by and check them out. Then, I also hope you join us!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Polka Dots

Hello, Happy Sunday! Today over at The Paper Players, it’s CAS week and the theme is Polka Dots. The sweet Anne Marie is our hostess this week. This is my Second card this week using a fun background that I made a few weeks back that was just waiting to be used on a card. Not sure I like this one as much as I like the Lily card I made for STB, but it will have to do. If you didn’t see that post, just scroll a few posts back and you will find it.

I am also linking up with the gals over at Happy Little Stampers and their Anything Goes with Stencils challenge.

Card Details: Background shape was made with a stencil I made with a Spellbinders Die. Then I used Honey Bee Stamps heart stencil and Oxide Inks to make my background. The Butterfly die is from Saavy that I backed with Polka dotted paper. It was a very quick card to put together.

Flip Flops

Hello, These cards will look familiar but I promise they are new, and I have not shared them before! This design is just one I have made before and just really enjoy. The stars above are a new idea.

A stamp friend of mine is hosting a Beach theme challenge over at Make the Cards Challenge and I wanted to support her and play along. Plus, I needed some more beachy cards for the stores, so it’s a win win. If you have not heard of this challenge, you should go check it out! There are tons of fabulous cards over there by Donna and the Design Team.

Here are two more!

Card Details: Stamps and Dies are all from Honey Bee Stamps, The backgrounds are done with Oxide Inks. The coloring is a bit of Prismas and Copics. I have put Crystal Effect on the straps of the flip flops to make them shine. I either used gems, dew drops, or sequins to finish them off. Oh, and lots of dimensionals too.

Thanks for popping in! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and or weekend, Nanc’

Sorry

Hello, Today starts the color challenge over at The Paper Players and Laurie has chosen a very nice color combo for us and all of you. As you can see the colors are Red, Black and Grey. I needed to make a pet sympathy card and I knew this color combo would work perfectly. I have made one similar to this one in the past for a dear friend.

Card Details: The paw print die cut I do believe is from Taylored Expressions, I didn’t order it but it was stuck in as a freebie which was a nice surprise. The heart is MFT and the greeting that didn’t stamp well is from Neat and Tangled.

Layers at Just Us Girls

Hello, I am back again today for the next Trend Challenge at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has chosen layers for us this time around. Even though lately I am trying to change my card making style to be more Clean and Simple, layering is really where my wheel house generally is. So this wasn’t difficult at all. I think I have 8 layers in all.

I am joining in the fun over at AAA Birthday where they are celebrating their 2nd Birthday! Congrats AAA!

Card Details: All the die cuts are from Stampin Up. I just love this sunflower die set so very much! And the greeting is from Stampendous. I used my Fiskars victorian blade to get my pretty border. I bet I have had both pieces of DSP for at least 10 years. A few gold sequins to finish it off.

Come by JUGS and join us! Happy creating, Nanc’

Sketchy Christmas

Hello, I am back today as I promised with one more Christmas card that is for the fun sketch going on over at the Global Design Project. This card is using one of my favorite color combinations, pale pink, kraft and white. Thanks to this sketch for motivating me I have 17 Christmas cards done! YAY!! I made another 5 or 6 with this sketch and the other designs will be posted at another time.

Card Details: It started with a SU Die set called Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I used part of the set for the fun base of my wreath. Next, I used my Impression Obsession small Poinsettia dies (that I love) and cut out two poinsettias. I decided to add some more foliage using white, kraft, and taupe and those are from SU-the Forever Fern set…One of my FAVS! The greeting is from another sentiment SU set that is a decade old. A little sparkle and I was done. Such a quick and fun card to put together.

Here is a close up look.

Thanks for the visit, Take care!

Christmas in May

It’s Christmas in May here in my studio! Is it too early? I am good with it, as that means I am getting a jump on start on some Holiday cards. You know every year it sneaks up on us rather quickly. I loved how this card turned out. It all started with the Colors of the Color Throwdown in mind. I actually ended up making 6 more in various colors when I was done with this one. My morning plans got changed, as I was suppose to be with my dad as he was scheduled to have some tests done and it was canceled, so I decided to make the most of it and spend the day creating. It was a nice relaxing time, creating for me and nobody else.

Card Details: My card Base is Ivory! I finally cracked open this SU Die set called Swirly Scribbles Thinlits that I have had for probably a few years. Not even kidding! I used part of the set for the fun base of my wreath. Next, I used my Impression Obsession small Poinsettia dies (that I love) and cut out two poinsettias. I decided to add some more foliage using kraft and blue and those are from SU-the Forever Fern die set…MY FAV! The greeting is from another SU set called Cherish the Season. A little sparkle and I was done. Such a quick and fun card to put together.

I am also going to play along once again over at Addicted to Stamps and More, as the Any Occasion Challenge is still going on.

Thanks for stopping by! I just might be back tomorrow to share another Christmas card.

You’ve been on my mind.

Hello, Hope you Monday is off to a good start! I have a very quick card for you today using my new layered stencils from Pink Fresh Studio. This stencil set is called Daisy Wreath and also has a die-cut for purchase too. I used the greeting from another new PFS stamp set called Layered Bouquet. Let me just say that the stencils are a game changer and if you don’t have any, you should get some. Did you see PFS’s brand new release? OMG…I want it all! Seriously, I need to have some self control! This hobby really can be a bit overwhelming, don’t you think?

I am linking my card up to a fairly new to me challenge site that I have played along with one other time, I do believe. It is called Fab Friday! They have a color challenge this time around and you know how much I love color challenges. I used Oxide inks to match the colors they selected in their graphic below. Hopefully my Old Olive match isn’t too light.

Of course I have to link this card up over at NBUS with my friend Darnell too.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week, Nanc’

Red and Orange

Second card for the day! JUGS post is below!

Hello, Here we are again, as the calendar keeps changing and it’s already May 1st. Can you believe it? I can’t! However, in the crafting world it’s a good thing, as that means it is time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Kristie is our hostess and she has chosen Red and Orange as our color duo. I had some fun with this color combo. I also knew I was going to be making this a Mother’s Day card and thought it would work perfectly for the Addicted to Stamps and More Any Occasion Challenge. So I am linking up over there as well.

Card Details: I have a mix of supplies for today’s card: The background was inked with a fun stencil. The heart die cut is from MFT. The flower array is from SU and from the bloom and Grow set. I colored the flowers TOO HEAVY handed with Copics. I tried to come in with a white Prisma pencil to give the flowers some shading, it only helped a wee bit! The white sprigs are also SU and from Forever Fern. The sentiment is from Paper Roses. I did an inlay with the heart and added a few gems.

Now, it’s time to pop on over to Color Hues, if you haven’t already, and check out what the Design Team and our fabulous sweet and talented guest Tracey McNeely have done. You are sure to be inspired!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’
