I’d Be Otterly Lost…

Hello, I am back today with a couple of cards combining some backgrounds that you have seen me make in the past with some sweet little MFT Otters. I absolutely love making backgrounds and I think these came out great! I will say right away that I didn’t spend much time coloring these cuties so I am aware that they aren’t very good. With that being said, we don’t always have as much time as we like when we sit down to create, now do we?

I am playing along with the Addicted to Stamps and More Die-cuts and Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: MFT Otterly Love You set, fishes stamp is SU, Perfect Pool stencil-MFT and the Wave is from Mayco-called Groovy. I used Prisma colored pencils as my medium-poorly. The Heart was punched out of red sparkle paper.

I hope you have a nice weekend and have some time to sneak away and get inky and escape the sad world we live in, even if only for a little while! Nanc’

With Sympathy

I am back again today with TWO more cards that were inspired by the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and the Just Add Ink Challenge where they have asked us to CASE ourselves. I so very often do this so I knew right away I wanted to play along. For the TTT Board, I have selected the center column of; Floral, Free, and Embellishments.

Card Number 2

Here is the original card I am CASEing along with the link to the post!

Card Details: The heart stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps, the other stencil is a mystery to me but one of my favs. The Daisy wreath is from Pink Fresh Studio and is a stencil, die combo. The sentiments are SU and Verve. I used Oxide Inks for my blending. I added sequins on both cards to finish them off. The center of my Daisy has a bit of clear Nuvo drops and some glitter as well.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be back tomorrow! Take care, Nanc’

New Home

Hello, I am back today with a card for The Paper Players where it’s CAS week and the theme Laurie chose is House. The Designers have a fabulous array of cards over there that you definitely should check out.

Card Details: The background was made with an MFT cloud stencil and a rolling hills stencil that I cut out of acetate and just kept moving to a different spot as I sponged to resemble hills. I was going to use my Lawn Fawn hills as my stencil, but they are stitched and they come out all dotted when you ink them up. LOL The houses are from Taylored Expressions and are a border die that I cut apart. I just paper-pieced my focal house in color and am pretending that Mickey Mouse lives there. It’s his colors, am I right? The sentiment is from MFT.

Let me just say that I spent more time looking for the card that inspired me to make this card than it took me to make the card itself. LOL I came up empty-handed. Just so you know I gave it a valiant effort and it definitely sparked my inspiration. I would love to give credit to the designer if I could.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting, Nanc’

Celebrate

Hello, It is Thursday, and time for our next topping at Seize the Birthday! The topping that was selected by Shirley, is Faux or Real Stitching. If you know me, which most of my followers do, I don’t sew! So I have elected to use the fake stuff and incorporate as many stitched die cuts as I could in my design.

We also have our next and very talented Surprise Party Guest joining us today!  Lorraine Aquilina! You will have to come by and check out her amazing card! Welcome, Lorraine! We are thrilled to have you with us!

A Few Card Details: I used an older engineer-type circle stencil to make my dotted background. First, I sponged the colors, and then I came back in with a sharpie and traced the circles. The cake stamp is from SU. The celebrate die is from Paper Roses. I put an extension to my MFT tag and covered it up with the MFT ric-rac to make a longer tag. The scalloped edge die is also MFT, I do believe. I added a few of my favorite Honeybee stamps dew-drops also.

I will be linking my card up over at Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Die Cut Challenge too!

Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and play along with us! Take care, Nanc’

Let’s Chill

Hi, I am popping in today with a Penguin card inspired by a couple of challenges. First and foremost, the Time Out Challenge-On Vacation! Some would say that I already live in paradise, and most of the time I would totally agree with that statement. But today in my mind, my little penguins and I are chilling somewhere in Hawaii. This card took some time to put together and I do believe I got a bit dot happy on my sand.

Over at Double D, they are looking for Birds, and over at Happy Little Stampers, I am entering into the stencil challenge.

Card Details: After I colored all my penguins and accessories using Copics, I used my MFT cloud stencil and started with the sky, then I made a stencil out of an old MFT-wave die and sponged my waves. Then I used my Lawn Fawn hill dies to make the sand. As I said before, I have way too many dots on my sand, I guess there are a lot of crab holes on this beach that day. LOL. There were so many cards over on Pinterest where I got some of the ideas for my card.

Thanks for checking in on me and I hope you are doing something today that brings you JOY! Nanc’

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’

Birds at TPP

Hello, It has been a few weeks since I had the opportunity to play along with my friends at The Paper Players, and as soon as I saw the Birds and Bees challenge I knew I could come up with something.

I have made a baby card like this in the past but not using the super fun Cloud Heart stencil from Miss Ink Stamps in conjunction with the MFT cloud stencil. Using both stencils together, I was able to achieve a lot of depth. I just love the way this turned out that I had to make a boy card too.

Card Details: The Cloud Heart Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps and the cloud ripple is from MFT. The stork is from Impression Obsession. The greeting is from MFT.

I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy! Nanc’

More Mother’s Day

Hello, I am back today with some more Mother’s Day cards using my favorite stencil/die and stamp set from PFS that I am still crushing on! I apologize in advance as you may just be seeing a few more of these in the next few days.

Card Details: I started off wanting to make a white rose! Next, I had to make a mask of my flowers which was very easy. Then I inked up the flower, covered it with my mask, and then did the stencil work. I had intentions of making one-layer cards and somehow ended up adding layered greetings on each one. All in all, I really do like the way these came out. The greetings are a mix of Paper Roses, Verve, and SU. The Daisy Stencil is from Miss Ink Stamps and one I really love! I added some Nuvo drops on each card.

Scroll down for two more cards!

This time I am playing along with two challenges; TGIF Challenges for their Mother’s Day theme and over at Time Out where they still have a Spring Challenge going on. This is my second entry at Time out.

Here are the other two cards!

I did a terrible job lining the outline stamp on the card above.

I sure appreciate you stopping by! I hope you do something today that is creative, Take care, Nanc’

Mother’s Day/ Guest

Hello, I hope you are doing well! I am so pleased to be a Guest Designer for the May Four Seasons Spring Challenge that starts today! Thanks, Darlene and the team for having me!

They have a beautiful and perfect mood board for this time of year. As you can see I took my inspiration from both the mother’s day sign and the beautiful florals on the top left.

Card Details: I adore all my stencils from Pink Fresh Studios-but the one I have today is called Choose Hope. I used Oxide inks and my heart die from MFT and my postage die is from Her Arts. A few clear Nuvo drops and a sentiment from SU to wrap it up.

I hope you will head on over to the Four Seasons challenge and check out the cards by the DT and play along!

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

Birthday Wishes

Hello, I am back today with a Birthday card which so happens to be for the challenge starting today at Seize the Birthday! I am the hostess and I chose Butterflies and or Hummingbirds as my topping. I tend to gravitate towards butterflies but I was determined to break out my Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbirds instead, after all, that is why I purchased them…right? I think I have used them maybe three times and that might be stretching the truth a bit. This card took hours to come together and that was not necessarily the coloring. Does that happen to you sometimes? I must have walked away from it at least three times. I used Copics for my coloring and a bit of white pencil for some final touches.

Card Details: The hummingbirds-Pretty Pink Posh, the scalloped edge die is from Lawn Fawn. The greeting is from Verve. The stenciled die is from MFT and called-Geometric Grid. The die-flowers and leaves are from Pink and Main. I used a dotted EF to give the leaves a bit of texture and some pearl centers on my flowers.

I hope you will come and check out the fabulous cards over at Seize the Birthday along with our wonderful Surprise Party Guest, Deepti! This is her last challenge with us and I am so very sad to see her go. Her work is always stellar. Take care, Deepti!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you take some time to do something creative today, Nanc’
