More than 1 Stencil

We have a fabulous challenge starting today over at Just Us Girls. The talented Carol is our host, and she has come up with the super idea of using more than one stencil this week. You know how much I love using stencils so I was super excited to get started on my idea for my card. I have been making a lot of one layer cards recently and I am really enjoying it. I feel as if my card making style is all over the place right now, but I sure am having fun with it. It is good to shake things up once an a while.

Card Details: I used Oxide inks in four colors to achieve my background colors. I used torn paper to mask off my paper and purposely left the white gap in between stencils. The sunflower and greeting are from Stampin Up. I came back with some Copics and Color Pencils to give the sunflower more definition.

Come on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the team has done with this challenge, you will surely be inspired.

Take care, Nanc’

MOM

Hello, Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your day! I needed to work on some inventory this afternoon, after hubby and I had lunch at the park and went for our daily walk, and I knew right away when I sat down I was going to create something for this fabulous color combo going on over at The Color Throwdown. I couldn’t wait to get started because I just love pink, and in this challenge they have two shades of pink paired with cream. Those colors just screamed Mother’s Day card to me. This card was fun to put together.

Here is a front shot of the card.

Details: A few days ago I had a SSS order come in with this fun new stencil from Altenew called Rose Bouquet and a great SSS MOM die-cut, along with maybe a few other things. LOL So since these items were used for the first time, I am going to link my card up over at NBUS also. After I inked my base of my leaves I came back with a Q-tip to give the leaves some more realistic definition with the same Antique linen ink. It worked perfectly. The bottom sentiment is from Paper Roses- Mother’s Day Quotes and I just love it. Not sure I should have inked it in black ( and crooked-grr) but it’s a little late now. LOL I finished it off with a ribbon and some Nuvo drops in groups of 3.

I hope if you are celebrating Easter tomorrow you have a truly wonderful day. Take care, Nanc’

Some Bunny Loves You

Is it a Balloon or is it really a giant heart patterned Lolli-pop? LOL

Hello, I am back today with another sweet bunny card using my relatively new to-me stamp set from Avery Elle called Some Bunny. I made this card with three challenges in mind. First, there is this great mood board over at Simon Say Stamps that started today at that sweet bunny just spoke to me, Next the Tic Tac Toe Challenge using the left column of; Bunny, Pastel Colors, and Dies. And last but certainly not least, for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

Card Details: Stamps are from Avery Elle- Some Bunny. I inked my background with Oxide Inks. I made a quick hill stencil with a sheet of acetate. I colored my bunny with Copics. The hearts in the lollipop are stenciled with white ink and the stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps. I used Nuvo drops in the center of my floating hearts.

I appreciate you stopping by! I hope your day is spent just the way you like it! Take care, Nanc’

Congrats -Baby

Hello, It’s Sunday and time for our CAS challenge at The Paper Players. Ann wants us to bring out the Animals this time around. I was needing to restock the baby cards and figured this baby stork would be perfect for this challenge. I really enjoyed putting this card together. It has a little of everything; stamping, stenciling, paper piecing, and die-cutting.

Couldn’t leave out the baby girls!

Card Details: Stork, baby bundle and Congrats are from Impression Obsession. The heart clouds were masked and sponged with an MFT cloud stencil using Oxide Inks.

Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello, I am hosting our Color Week at Just Us Girls and the colors I have chosen are Yellow, Dark Green, and Grey. Unfortunately, I have been needing a ton of sympathy cards lately. It has been a really hard few months for some of our dearest friends and relatives. And this morning as I write this post, I just found out I need another one. I love the way this turned out so I think I will just repeat this card later today for a dear colleague that lost her daughter to cancer. So much sorrow in the world right now.

Card Details: Most all of the dies are from SU, the stenciled background is called Groovy-I think! The greeting is from Verve.

I would love to see you join us at Just Us Girls this week! Take care, Nanc’

Beautiful You

Hello, I had to take a shortcut this week for The Paper Players and make a really quick and easy card for Joanne’s Color Challenge! My dad is needing quite a bit of extra care these days, and that is okay, as this is just a hobby and he means the world to me. Rest assured, the design team is sure to inspire you better than I have this week! The Poppy Bloom stencil from Altenew and Oxide Inks never fail me when I am pushed for time! The greeting is from Verve! Isn’t that font beautiful?

I hope you will join us! The talented Design Team is linked up for you below! Take care, Nanc’

Sending Joy and Sunshine

Hello, I am back again! Do you stamp in the evening? I usually don’t, but find it very essential and relaxing as of late. My days have been rather full lately and it’s been a great way to unwind before turning in.

A Few Card Details: Stencil- MFT, The Palm Tree- is MFT from Penguins in Paradise, drink and hibiscus’ are MFT-Polynesian Paradise. The greeting I believe was a freebie from SU but again my brain isn’t what it use to be and I am not 100% certain, it was lying in my bits and boxes waiting to be used. The sun and little leaves are from MFT as well. I used my Copics as my medium and Oxides for my background.

Today I am combining with three other challenges, as currently there are stencil and die challenges everywhere!!! Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies, Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge, and Stamplorations Use a Stencil.

I so appreciate you stopping in and I hope you have a wonderful day, Stay Well! Nanc’

It All Started with a Flamingo…

More cards below!

Hello, I just got back from taking care of my dad and had a window of time that was too short to tackle anything big, but just long enough to get this post written. My dad has an infection again and he has been my top priority since last Thursday. Well, he is always my top priority but more so now. We go back to the doctor this afternoon and hopefully, we can get a handle on it.

Sorry, you probably didn’t stop by for all of that!

As for card making, I am linking up with two challenges: Addicted to CAS– where the word is Animal, and the second challenge is Happy Little Stampers where they have Anything Goes with a Stencil.

The first card I made was the Flamingo card and I loved it so much, I started thinking about what other images and colors might work with this design. Below are the rest that I came up with.

I accidentally titled the stencil on the lighthouse card and didn’t notice it till now. Bother!

I have two stamp companies for these cards: SU, and Gina K- the Hydrangea, the greeting is from Altenew. I used ripped paper to get my edges and then laid down my stencil. I believe it is Groovy by Debbie Cole, but I am not certain. I used Oxide Inks and some Ink splatters and I was done. Hubby said he liked them better before the splatters.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Word Week-Animals

Hello, Here we are back to Saturday again and time for the Word Week at Just Us Girls. I don’t know what your weather is like where you are but let me just say that it’s been perfect here! Yesterday, hubby and I spent the morning at the beach, which in fact totally inspired my card for today. As you can see I am still in fun background mode!

Card Details: Die cuts are from Sizzix, I used the smooshing technique to color my seahorse and seagrass. The background was made with my MFT water stencil along with a stencil I made with stitched rectangles and a piece of acetate. Don’t look too close around my rectangles as the ink may have come through and left a dashed border around each rectangle. Note to self, don’t use stitched dies when making your own stencil. LOL The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I also, realized that this is the first time I used my Seahorse and Sand-dollar from Sizzix so I will be sharing this over at the fabulous Darnell’s NBUS.

The card that inspired me also with this layout is below! I love everything Michelle does from the Card Grotto! She is super talented!

Come on over to Just Us Girls, we have a brand new Guest with us… Welcome, Shawna! Shawna along with the team have a fun array of animals for you to enjoy!

Take care, Nanc’

Yellow and Blue

Hello, How did it get to be March 1st already? Wow, even with life being status quo and sometimes feeling a bit humdrum due to Covid, the days still seem to be flying by. Cindy is our hostess this time at Color Hues and she has two great hues of colors for us. As you can see the colors she has chosen are Yellow and Blue.

Card Details: I started off using an old Stampin Up stripes stencil to make my background. Then I stamped my leaves in blue, and die cut both of them and the white ones which are also from SU-Forever Fern. Then I found a much-neglected die cut from SU called Rose Garden and sponged a piece of cardstock before cutting it out leaving the white outline and putting it back together. Most of the color on the card was done with Oxide Inks. The greeting is from Verve! I adore the clear dew drops which I added from Honey Bee Stamps to finish it off.

I sure hope to see you in the gallery over at Color Hues. The Design Team rocked it as they usually do! Stay safe and healthy! Nanc’
