My Heart is with You!

We have a great fall photo for your inspiration this week at Just Us Girls. I was in the need for a Sympathy card this week so I decided to see if I could pull off combining this challenge with that type of card.  Not sure I love it, but it will have to do. I also used one of my very first Stampin Up stamp sets called Branching Out for this card. The colors are a bit muted as I used Distress Oxide Inks, and kinda wish I hadn’t in hind sight.  I added some splatters and some fun glass beads. The sentiment is from Verve!

Please come on over to JUGS and check out what the team and our Guest Julie did with the photo this week. Take care, Nanc’

Color Week!

Hello Friends, Boy the days are flying by and it’s time for another challenge over at Just Us Girls!  It’s also nearly summer break and I couldn’t be more ready for that! Only one more week! The photo above stinks and the card is long gone, so you will just have to trust me that it’s brighter and looks better in person. I just adore this color combo that Lisa has chosen for us this week.

I hope you will consider joining us over at JUGS!  Who knows you might be selected as our new Chic of the Week too.  Take care, Nanc’

Card details:  Stampin UP dies and sentiment and MFT- Cover plate.

I Will Always Be Here For You!

Hello friends,  It’s Saturday and time for our next Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  For those of you that have been following my blog for quite sometime, you are going to think I have seen this card before, well rest assure you aren’t crazy. However, you haven’t seen THIS card before, but you have seen me do this technique and layout a time or three! It is one of my all time favorite cards so why not case myself…..right?? When I saw our Trend over at JUGS was black and white stripes this is the first thing that came to mind. I hope it’s okay that I added the grey too.

The butterfly is from Savvy and the sentiment (in the Adorable Elephants set) and the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles are from the MFT.

Please come by Just Us Girls and share your Black and White stripe creations with us and check out my fabulous team and guest Karren’s creations.  Nanc’

Great Colors at JUGS!

Hello,  I have a very quick card for you today that is for our Color Week at Just Us Girls. I got out one of my favorite Stampin Up sets called Painted Harvest to begin my card. I haven’t had this set very long and I haven’t quite mastered the placement of the flowers, but I will get it eventually. I hope! LOL The sentiment is from SU as well.

I sure hope these colors will speak to you and you will consider joining us this week at JUGS!   Nanc’

With Sympathy…

Hello friends, It’s time again for a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It just so happens to be Photo Week and let me explain where my eyes were drawn to on this photo, as there is a lot to look at.

I loved the bold white mats around each of the pictures on the wall, so I decided to put a white open frame on my card. I took the bold bright yellow couch as my color choice for my flower, next I noticed the pink florals in the vase next to the couch and picked out my DP and last but not least I decided to incorporate black on my card base from the black and white striped rug. Now that it is finished, I think the vellum leaves do a nice job expressing the light cascading though the window….okay…I might be stretching it a tad! LOL  The butterfly, oval die and sentiment is SU, The Flower die is from SU- Rose Garden set, the vellum leaves are a huge die from Sizzix.

I am also entering this card over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!

I hope you will drop by JUGS this week and check out the DT’s cards and our fabulous Guest Cathymac, and join us too.

Take care, Nanc’

JUGS is Back!

Hello friends, Just Us Girls is back from our nice long break and are ready to get back to it!  Vicki is our hostess this week and she has started the year off with a terrific challenge.  It’s Anything Goes this week, so I sure hope you will consider joining us!  While you are over at JUGS, I sure hope you will take a minute and help us welcome our Newest Design Team member!  She is so well known in the card making world that I was over the top excited to find out she was joining us! Carol Mayne from Just Me:c!  Yes I know!  Can you believe it? Now you know why I was so excited! Welcome Carol!! Can’t wait to work along side you!

We also have a new Guest Designer with us this month that I would very much like to Welcome! Cathy McCauley [cathymac].

Now a little bit about my card! If you stop by my blog regularly you know I don’t often make one layer cards.  However, I did enjoy putting this one together.  I had to be very patient as it started off kinda terrible and I just kept working with it, and it began to grow on me. It was made with two Altenew sets; Beautiful Day and Botanical Garden. It is done with watercolors after I heat embossed the flowers and stems with white EP. Next, I splattered it with the same tones of colors from the flowers and finally dotted with some Nuvo drops. Don’t examine it to closely as it has some major faux pas’.  LOL

Before I go I am linking my card up over at Stamp Ink, Paper where they have asked us to use Embossing of any kind.

Hope to see you at JUGS! Nanc’

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’

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.
