BOO

Hello, I am back today with an array of Halloween cards using a mix of products. I posted a card using the cute Pink and Main set called Hello Bootiful about a week ago, but this time I paired it with the new Candy Corn Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I am so excited about this product as it’s so much fun to use with fun results.

Here is a close up.

I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketch challenge for the card above. However, I have two more cards using the sets using a circle instead. I love the way they all turned out!

I am linking up card #2 over at Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge and card #3 over at Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge.

Card Details: Stamps are from Pink and Main-Hello Bootiful. The stencil is from Pretty Pink Posh. Card #1 the background is just Oxide inks. Card #2. I used some clear Nuvo drops and glitter for the top of my candy corn. Card #3 actually has texture paste for the top of the candy corn but when I decided to use some glitter it kinda defeated the purpose and you can’t even see the paste. I used Prismas and Copics to color. I made a stencil out of a deckled edge rectangle die and of course a circle too. The rounded scalloped edge on card #2 and 3 is from MFT. I have dimensionals under my sentiments. I used orange glitter paper for my dots.

I so enjoy your visit and thanks so much for coming by! Nanc’

With Sympathy

Hello, It’s Saturday and it’s time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls where yours truly is the hostess this time. I have chosen a fall picture for your inspiration. I used a bit of this and that to achieve the look I was going for. The Design Team and our Guest Julie did a wonderful job with this challenge. Speaking of Julie, today is her last post with us as our guest. Julie, it’s been an absolute pleasure having you with us.

Card Details: If you have any specific questions let me know. I did a lot of stencil work and ink blending from dies and the smaller leaves are stamps from the same set. It is a retired set called Colorful Seasons and the coordinating die set is called Seasonal Layers. The Perfect Plaid Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps.

I hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and play along with us. We would love to have you. Nanc’

Greetings from the Couch

Hello, I hope you are off to a great start this week. The days are certainly flying by, aren’t they? I am in no way ready for the Holiday Season. How about you? I think it’s coming even if we aren’t ready!

Today’s card is using some of my favorite sets from MFT and it just so happens that MFT has 10% off their entire site from the 13th-16th including their new release. So now is your chance! Lucky for me when I got my Couch kit it included all the pieces to make some really great cards and what a great value it was. If you have never purchased one of their kits I highly recommend them. However, this kit is no longer available but you can still pick and choose the stamp and or die sets that you want to make this card. You will just have to hunt around a bit. I have linked up the scene-building area for you on their website to help you.

I am linking up this card with Tic Tac Toe using the diagonal row of Any Shape, Free, and Sentiment. Also over at Happy Little Stampers for Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: All products are from MFT including the brick stencil background. I got a little heavy-handed when I inked it up with my Oxide ink. I was hoping the furniture would hide most of the imperfections. The DSP also is from MFT.

Thanks for popping by! Take care and happy crafting! Nanc’

Farmtastic Day

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I have a fun little Farm scene for you today using some new to me MFT products and some old stencils and dies that are also MFT. The stamp set is called Farmtastic Friends and it’s just as darling as can be. I am not the first person to stack farm animals on a card, but the sketch just worked out perfectly for it. More details are below!

I am playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch along with the great Baa-Cluck-Moo-Neigh-Oink-Quack challenge over at Double D.

Card Details: The stencil-shaped background is from MFT and is called Watercolor Wash Rectangle. I really love using it! I made a stencil from an MFT grass die using a piece of acetate as I wanted the blades of grass more defined. I used MFT’s cloud stencil for my sky. I colored the images with Copics and a bit of Prisma Colored Pencils. I doubled all my animals to make them have a little more stability and depth. Do you do that? ( I sound like Urkel) LOL, I do it quite often.

I hope whatever you do today, it certainly makes you happy! Nanc’

Thanks

I am popping in this morning to share some quick and simple Thank You cards. I am always reaching for white cardstock and decided why not try using this fun stencil on some colored paper. I love the results and less blending was required too.

I am going to add these to the gallery at Happy Little Stampers-Stencil Challenge and over at TGIF where they ask us, what would we do without White Card Stock?

Card Details: Stencil is called Retro Palms and from Newton’s Nook. The sentiment Thank you from all of us is from Stampin Up and the other one is unknown.

I hope you have a very creative day! Nanc’

Deepest Sympathy

Hello, It’s Saturday and time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Bobby has chosen Stencils as our Trend this week and I was certainly happy about that! Great choice, Bobby! Of course, I turned to one of my favorite stencil and stamp sets to make my card.

Card Details: Pink Fresh Studio-Choose Hope, Leaf stenciled background is from Miss Ink Stamps. The fabulous sentiment is so very old and from Close to My Heart. I love it and forgot I had it. I used Oxide inks- Peacock Feathers and Iced Spruce. Some clear Nuvo drops to finish it off.

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Case a Designer

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls Ina has a terrific idea for us for Wild Card Week. What she wants us to do is CASE a Designer. I just loved this idea and could have picked any one of my teammates or anyone out in blog-land for that matter to CASE, as there are so many fabulous cardmakers out there. But, a few weeks ago I was at fellow DT member Carol Mc’s house and we were crafting together and I knew I wanted to play with one of her stamp sets after I saw her make the card below! It worked out perfectly! This card was so much fun to put together.

HERE is a link to Carol’s card

Card Details: Greetery dies and stencil. Oxide Inks for the background.

Hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and pick a designer to CASE and play along. Also, before I go, I want to thank Fran for being such a fabulous guest with us this past month. We have certainly enjoyed having you.

Take care, Nanc’

Hello-Spellbinders

Hi, I am back today as promised, with another card using that same color palette from yesterday. This time I am using this fabulous new Small Die of the Month from Spellbinders, called Day at the Beach. I am sure you are not surprised that this Florida girl had to add this to her collection! It is as cute as it can be and fun to put together.

I did have to trim the card down a half inch as I messed up the sides of the water while stenciling.

Here is a close-up.

Supplies Used: Some with Affiliate Links

Small Die of the Month

Platinum 6

MFT- Make Waves Stencil

Miss Ink Stamps-Perfect Plaid

Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral and Peacock Feathers

A Few Card Details: In order to make my background I used a straight edge of acetate and some masking to blend the sky. In order to make the rippled edge of the sand, I used a piece of ripped paper. The waves were added last with a stencil. I used a stencil from Miss Ink Stamps to make my bathing suit pattern. I inked the flip-flops, and I have dimensionals for height and a few decorative rhinestones.

I am linking up with Darnel over at NBUS. and Simon Says Stamps, make your own background.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day and or week ahead! Nanc’

Just For You

I needed a quick card for a dear friend that is going through a rough time and decided to remake a card I made earlier this year. This card is a one-layer card and is a design and stamp set that is my go-to design that always ends in beautiful results. In order to make a one-layer card, I stenciled the flower and stamped the outline first, and then masked it off to do the heart background.

I am playing along with The Cupcake Inspirations as their beautiful photo totally inspired me to pick my color palette for my design.

Card Details: The heart stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps. The Choose Hope stamp and stencil set is from Pink Fresh Studio. The sentiment is from Altenew-Fancy Greetings.

I certainly hope you had or are having a wonderful day, Nanc’
