Hello…just a little something

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s time for Sketch Week. I love sketches…do you? I feel they make the design come together so much faster as the template is made for you. Joanne has a fun one for us today! Please don’t look too closely at my card as I did a terrible job inking the sky and grass. I didn’t have the stamp set to make a mask with, so I was inking around the image as carefully as I could. I had borrowed this stamp from a friend and only stamped a few, and I didn’t want to waste one of these cute little bears on a mask that was going to get all inky.

Card Details: Bear is from Ellen Hutson, Flowers- Colossal Con-flowers in the background are from Gina K. (also given to me from a friend). The greeting is a mix of Gina K. (a little something) and (Hello) is Papertrey Ink. The sky -MFT stencil, the grass is also an old MFT die that I used to make a stencil. The tag, flowers, and rectangle dies are all MFT. The butterfly is a MS punch.

Come see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team did with this challenge, you truly will be inspired!

A Bouquet…

Hello, How is it Saturday already? After this week’s events, I think we all could use a little bouquet of flowers as I pick me up. Not to mention the ongoing Pandemic. SIGH! Making this card was a nice distraction to escape from this world that I don’t recognize anymore. Over at Just Us Girls, it’s Trend Week and all you have to do is use a stencil.

Card Details: The stencil is called Groovy and from Mayco I do believe, the cute little elephant is an old stamp set that I have never used. It is from Crafters Companion. I used colored pencils as my medium.

I am once again going to link this cute little guy up over at NBUS with the incredible Darnell.

I hope you will consider joining us at JUGS this week and however you choose to spend your day that it will be a happy one. Take care, Nanc’

Here is the second card.

Card Details: MFT Christmas stencil, Poinsettia die is Impression Obsession, peace die- SU, both scalloped circles are Spellbinders, circle die is SU, tag die is MFT.

Stay safe out there and good luck accomplishing your to do list, Nanc’

Thinking of you at Christmas

Hello, I have another snowglobe Christmas card for you today that is was of my favorites. I was looking at all the Christmas cards I created this year and do you know that it appears that pastels were my thing this year. I didn’t even realize that I opposed the traditional colors so strongly. LOL

I am entering this card over at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and have selected the right column; Sparkle Glitter, Stencil, and Snow along with The Paper Players where the theme is Christmas.

Here is a close up of my globe.

I have been using WordPress for 12 years and they are changing the formatting and I am trying to adapt before the New Year starts and they change it for me. So if my post looks a little off today that is why. I am not loving it and hope that my attitude changes as I fumble through it.

Card Details: MFT-stencil, Snowglobe-Lawnfawn, little Santa is Neat and Tangled, greeting is SU.

Thanks for stopping in and please take care, Nanc’

Just Add S

Hello, I hope this post finds you doing well. Over at Just Add Ink, they are asking us to Just Add S to our card. Well, I think I have that pretty well covered. I have a Stencil, a Snow-globe, a Santa, Snowflakes, and Stripes for today’s Christmas card. 

Remember you were forwarned that you would see lots of MFT stenciled backgrounds and adorable snowglobes! I am a tad obsessed at the moment.

Some card details: MFT-Tag, Christmas Stencil , LawnFawn-Snowglobe , SU-Sentiment , Tiny Santa-Neat and Tangled.

I am trying to resist all the stamp sales that are going on today, but I am not doing a very good job. I have made 3 separate purchases so far! Shhhhhh! It’s our little secret. 

Take care, Nanc’

Merry

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! I fell in love with the colors over at The Color Throwdown and have two cards to share with you today.

I have had this adorable snowglobe die from Lawn Fawn for a long time and this is the first I have used it.  Oh my goodness is it fun to put together!  Why did I wait so long? I will be making more that is for sure, so you have been forwarned.  I added the bow from Paper Smooches and his face is the cream color as well.  Had to make sure I got all the colors in. The sentiment is from SU and the background stencil is from MFT.  The majority of my Christmas cards I am making this year will all have the MFT stencil somewhere on them. I made 42 backgrounds altogether using white ink about two months ago and have been whittling the stack down ever since.  So fun and quick with a great empact!

Here is a close up so you can see the glittery snow. 

Below is my second card! I am linking this up over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Over there they want us to use Non-traditional Christmas Colors. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders, the poinsettia is from Impression Obsession and the fern-leaves are SU. The Merry die cut is also SU.

Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it. Nanc’

25 Dag of Christmas Tags

 

Hello, I have been really enjoying looking at all the tags for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags by the fabulous Tracey McNeely and her crew, and finally had some time today to join in the fun. It happens to be day 15 (better late than never) but my inspiration for my tags came from Day 6. My inspiration was from a few different tags from that day.  First, I like the look of the double tag from both Vicki and Shirley’s tags.  Next, I found a reindeer stamp as I thought Shirley’s was so adorable. Finally, I combined that idea with the word background of Sanna’s tag.

I had a happy accident when I was stamping.  I sponged all my backgrounds using Broken China for the sky. Then after I had stamped my first reindeer I accidentally smudged it with my fingers.  I decided to see what would happen if I continued to smudge the rest and I think they came out great. 

Details: Tags, scalloped die, and background stencil are MFT, the scalloped edge is a SU punch. The reindeer stamp is a block stamp from Recollections. The hills are made from a Lawn Fawn die. The bows are from Paper Smooches. The sentiment is Verve.  

If you haven’t checked out the 25 days of Christmas Tags I highly recommend it.  So much talent and inspiration.

1, 2, 3 at Seize the Birthday

Hi, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new topping starting that Glenda has selected for us. The topping is 1, 2 and 3. Let me explain.

You are to use 1-stamp, stencil or die-cut, 2 colors excluding neutrals, and 3 embellishments. Fun and creative right? Way to go Glenda for thinking outside the box for us.

As you can see from my card…I have one SSS-Peony Stencil, two colors-yellow and green, and three rhinestones.

I hope you will come check out the rest of my Design Team’s cards and play along.  Just remember it has to be a birthday card.

Take care, Nanc’

Hey, Gullfriend!

Hello, I hope you are doing well.  Today I have a mix of two stamp sets from MFT on my card. I have been playing a lot with MFT as of late, but haven’t shared many of the cards that I have made with you yet!  These were my latest purchases with the last vault release -Seaside Seagulls and the Polynesian Paradise sets.  I have been obsessed with making cloud-shaped backgrounds using masking stencils and Acetate too. Since I am playing along with the Color Challenge at MFT I had to use be creative and use Coral for my sky. I shied away from coloring the seagull grey, as that is not one of the colors this week, so he is al-natural to go along with the colors in the challenge. The sky was done with Oxide Ink- Abandoned Coral. I used the MFT cloud stencil as well.  Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils as my medium of choice.

Of course, I have to join in the fun with my buddy Darnell over at Never Before Used Schtuff! 

I am so glad you dropped in for a visit.  Stay safe out there in this crazy world! Hugs! Nanc’

Happy Birthday

Hello, It’s Sunday at least I think it is.  I have a fun card for you today for a couple of challenges.  My idea began with this great sketch over at My Favorite Things. When I first looked at the sketch I saw a swimming pool. Plus, I just got the new Perfect Pool water stencil from MFT that I have been itching to use. Next, I decided to pair it up with the word Peaceful at Time Out Challenge. I don’t know about you, but there is nothing more peaceful to me than floating around a swimming pool on an innertube. Boy do I miss our pool, especially this summer with the pandemic and all.  At least my little MFT Elephant is enjoying himself on this hot summer day.  I put a light coat of white ink over my first color of Broken China Oxide ink. It really looks great IRL. Still have a lot to learn with Copics but I will get there.

All stamps and the stencil are MFT.

I so appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’
