Prayers…

Hello Friends, It’s indeed Saturday and time for the latest challenge at Just Us Girls.  Vicki has picked a typical Halloween color combination, but I was in need of a sympathy card for a dear friend who lost her husband recently, so I took that route instead. I like how it came together and have made quite a few cards since then using this same layout.

My card is a mix of many companies, so if you have any questions just give me a shout out!

Hope to see you over at JUGS!  Nanc’

Hello friends, I’m writing this post on my phone which is not something I’m use to at all!  I have no power at home still…thanks to Hurricane Irma, but happy to see that I must have suspected this as my post was started with my photo already uploaded!

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out the rest of the cards from my awesome team and join us!

Hugs and thanks for all the love and well wishes… this too will pass and I’ll hopefully be back up and running soon!  Nanc’

Something Old/ Something New

Hello Friends, It’s Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls and Ina has selected a fun and easy challenge for us! All you have to do is to use Something Old and or Something New on your card and or project.  I have done both…sort of! My stamp set is very Old as I have had it for YEARS and it’s New as it has never had INK on it until now.  Now that I think about it, the sentiment is New as well as I have never used it before.

Before I go I want to say Thanks to Aileen for being such a terrific Guest this past month!  HUGS, Nanc’

Supplies; Stamp-Inkadinkado, Watercoloring, Gold Embossing powder, MFT-heart, Sentiment-Stampin UP.

Color Week is My Fav!

 


Hello Friends,  I hope you had a great week and are ready to get crafty this weekend!  Have I got a perfect color combo for you!  This week is Color week at Just Us Girls (my favorite of our challenges by the way) and the lovely Judy has sure picked out a good one!  I have been in a watercoloring mood as of late, so that is what I have for you today! The beautiful stamp and sentiment are both from Stampin Up. At first when I saw this very large stamp in the set called Rose Wonder, I was a bit compuzzled on how I was going to use it, as it takes up the majority of the space on a card.  However, those fears were quickly squashed when I came up with this CAS layout.  I will be using it again and again that is for sure!

I sure hope you will pop on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the team did this week!  Happy crafting,  Nanc’

Sending Hugs….

Hello Friends,  I knew when I saw Sue’s challenge over at Just Us Girls that  I was going to pull out my faithful Altenew Stamp Set -Beautiful Day and get to work. I just love using Multi Step Stamps, they are so forgiving and essentially goof proof. At least I think they are.  Do you know that I just realized the other day that this stamp set has a matching die set too.  Needless to say…this one is fussy cut and the die cut is on its way to my house as I type! LOL There are so many cards over at Pinterest using this fantastic stamp …you can’t help but get inspired!

I gotta run, I have ten million thing to do tonight as I am leaving town for a baby shower this weekend.

Sure hope you will join us at Just Us Girls this week!  Take care, Nanc’

Praying for you my friend….

Hello,  I have a super quick post for you today!  I saw this GREAT color combo over at Just Add Ink and wanted to see if I could put something together for a dear co-worker that is having a terrible time. I let my fingers do the walking through Pinterest and decided to come up with something similar to Kay Miller’s card below…isn’t it gorgeous?  Not overly happy with my pink flowers, as I started off watercoloring them and then decided to go over it with prisma colored pencil. It will have to do! The flowers and leaves are from Altenew and the sentiment is Verve.  Have a wonderful day! Nanc’

4 Cards for CAS(E) this Sketch

dsc_0317

cts_197Hello Friends,  I hope you enjoyed your day, however you chose to spend it.  I spent part of my morning, since I was up at the crack of dawn due to the time change, in my studio making these 4 cards.  I saw the perfect sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch, that I knew would help make these cards come together quickly…and that it did.  I got out one of my favorite stamp sets Beautiful Day- by Altenew and went to work.  The ink colors I used are from SU, they are Pool Party and Tip Top Taupe.  I mix and matched the stunning flowers with some sentiments from Verve, Close to My Heart, and Hero Arts. I used my Copic marker BG10 to add some shadows, or in one case colored the entire background. I just adore using my Fiskars cutter and victorian blade to add some frilliness to my cards.  Some might say that it’s kinda my signature as I do it a lot.

Let’s go look at the rest of them, shall we.

Birds at Just Us Girls

DSC_0015

Screen Shot 2016-04-30 at 2.27.40 PMHello Friends,  What day is it?  Yes, It’s Saturday and time for a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It’s Word Week this week and Bobby has chosen the word BIRD for us.  I was in need of a Sympathy card this past week for a co-worker, so I got out my favorite SU heart die and color combination and went to work. I cut out my branch using my dusty old Cricut….LOL that has been so neglected, and the bird is from a Stamp company called Darcies that I haven’t used in forever.  I shaded him with a regular pencil.  My sentiment is from Stampin Up as well.  I also want to welcome our Guest Designer for the month of June…..Cornelia Wenokor.  We are so glad you are with us Cornelia!!

Hope you have a wonderful day, find some time to be creative, and come on over to Just Us Girls and join us!  I know you have an old bird laying around collecting dust!  HUGS!  Nanc’

Wild Card Week

DSC_0462.jpg

Screen Shot 2015-12-06 at 9.57.59 PMHello Friends, It’s time for another great challenge over at Just Us Girls.  Can you believe it’s the 5th Saturday of January already?  I honestly don’t know where the time goes.  We are also half way through the school year and starting the third quarter.  Which we affectionately refer to as the ” Sink or Swim Quarter.”  It always holds true too!  Anyhoozal…..Since it’s the 5th Saturday of the month it’s wild card week and Chris has a Tic Tac Toe challenge for us.  I don’t know about you but, I kinda like them. I have chosen the column straight down the middle with; die-cut, stamps and flowers.  Infact, I had so much fun that I made two more cards after this one.

Card Details: I was kinda all over the place with this so if you need any info please ask!  Now come on over to Just Us Girls this week and pick a column or row for Tic Tac Toe and while your there check out what the team and our Two Guest Designers did this week.  Speaking of Guests.  I need to thank Vicki and Deepti for being with us, we sure have enjoyed having you both.

Take care,  Nancy
