Thanks-Photo Week

Hello, It’s Photo Week at Just Us Girls hosted by the lovely Sue. I hope she won’t mind but I went in an entirely different direction for my card than the rest of my teammates did this week. I took inspiration from the colors and not from the photo itself. I love the colors and am pretty happy with how quickly my card came together. Before I get to the card details, It is time to say farewell to our Guest Leslie. We have really enjoyed having you tagging along with us and I have enjoyed your cards and sweet comments too. Take care and hope to see you back in the gallery again soon.

Card Details: Stamps’ SU- Forever Fern, DSP- SU, Heart die-MFT and greeting is SU too.

Hope you will run on over to JUGS and check out my teammate’s cards! They did a great job with this photo and you are sure to be inspired!

Take care, Nanc’

Rainbow Colors

Hello, It is time for Color Week over at Just Us Girls and Angie asked us to use Rainbow Colors this time around. This was such a great idea as it leaves your creativity pretty wide open. I may not have gotten every color of the rainbow on my card but I think it is close enough. This stamp set is from Hero Arts and Honey Bee stamps and is called Stronger Together. In order to keep the center of the card white, I had to make a mask. Next, I used a variety of Oxide Inks to make my background. Which I might add is blended poorly. Last, I used my heart stencil from Honey Bee Stamps to finish it off in coordinating colors. The Thanks die is from Savvy.

I am trying to continue to embrace other challenge sites along with my DT commitments as I enjoy them so very much. So, I am going to link this card up over at Double D Challenges where the challenge is Hearts with this photo to inspire us.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out all the rainbow of color from my fellow Design Team members, they really did a fabulous job!

Take care, Nanc’

Something New!

Hello, Today is my first challenge as a Guest Designer for 2021 over at The Paper Players. Insert happy dance! If you happened to miss my announcement I have linked it up for you Here! I am over the top excited to be a part of this talented team. For our first challenge of the New Year, LeAnne has asked us to use something new on our card. Well, I don’t know about you but I may have a few new things lying around the craft room that I have yet to use or I just recently purchased. The stamp and dies I chose to use for today’s card are from Stampin Up and have never been used. To my defense, I have only had them two months so not too bad. I have wanted this set from the moment it came out! It stamps beautifully and is called Forever Fern. The designer paper is also from Stampin Up and the greeting is too. This is a fast card with a great reward!

Now, please dust off some stamps that you have yet to use, or maybe break the seal on something you got for Christmas and come and join us at The Paper Players! The team and the two other guests…Debbie and Amanda have some serious eye candy for inspiration to get you started!

For more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team:

I sure hope I can keep up with the talent over there!

Hope to see you in the gallery! Nanc’

Dad you are Awesome

Hello, My Dad is Awesome! In fact, he is about to turn 90 at the end of this month.  I asked him if we could throw him a birthday party, and he unfortunately said no. I am going to have to do something special for the man that has done so much for me all these years.  Love him so!

Today’s card is for the masculine card challenge over at The Paper Players.  I have been CASEing myself lately when I need some help and HERE is the card I originally made.

Card details:  Sizzix-alphabet dies, SU-background paper, SU-anchor stamp, awesome die-cut-Verve, You are sentiment-SSS, wonky rectangle die-MFT

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a truly wonderful day! Nanc’

Color Hues #1

Hello,  Yeah it’s September 1st!!!  I am so excited that it’s finally time for the very first challenge over at Color Hues. The colors as you can see are yellow and green.  Remember you can use any Hue of those Two Colors and Neutrals are always welcome.  You have till the 14th of the month to join us so you have loads of time.

Card details: Gerbera Daisy Background stamp is from SSS.  The sentiment is from MFT.  If you look closely you can see some clear Nuvo drops for embellishment.  I kinda went overboard on those.

I sure hope you will head on over to Color Hues and join us!  Just wait till you see the Design Team’s cards! You will be as impressed as I was!

Happy crafting, Nanc’

You’re So Kind

Hello, I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.  We are hanging in there and keeping an eye on the tropics.  Just what we need is a hurricane to make 2020 even better than its current state.  I really think it is going to shift South and head more towards the panhandle and spare us on the West Coast of Florida.  I surely don’t wish it on anyone, so hopefully it doesn’t get too strong and cause much damage.  Well, you didn’t stop by for a weather forecast now did you?

Today’s card is for The Color Throwdown this week. Purple, Blue, and Yellow are the colors I was working with. It wasn’t as easy a combo as I thought it would be, but it finally came together.  I was inspired by this card HERE.  I just love anything Wanda Guess designs. If you don’t follow her on Instagram or her blog, may I suggest you do!  She is very talented, super sweet, and has exceptional photographing skills.

Details: The Heart and Kind die-cut are both SSS.  The You’re So is just part of a sentiment from MFT.  It was super fun piecing all these pieces all the flowers back together.  Very calming I would say.

Be sure to check back with me on MONDAY for a fun Announcement!! I am really so excited to share my news!  

However, I will be back tomorrow with my weekly JUGS card!  See you then, Nanc’

A Tiny Word…

Hello,  I have a quick card for you today that is a repeat design of one I have done in the past.  When I get a creative block I tend to look through my old posts and recreate a card all over again in different colors. I am playing along with the fun over at Just Add Ink. 

Card Details:  Sentiment is SU, Oxide Ink background, sun die that I made a stencil with- is from Lawn Fawn, the shell dies are from Impression Obsession.

I hope you have a great day!  Nanc’

Butterflies

Today’s cards are for this month’s Twofer Challenge.  The word Darnell has for us is Butterflies.  Well, I don’t know many cardmakers that don’t have a few butterflies in their stash of supplies.  The hardest part was deciding which one. I decided to get out my neglected die-cut from Saavy for my cards. The die is a bit challenging as it is so large and takes up so much space on a card front.  I decided to try my hand at making some backgrounds for both cards since the cards themselves were going to end up being rather simple.

The green and black card all started with some Alcohol Inks on glossy cardstock.  Then I did the lifting technique with some blending solution and a leaf stencil.  You can’t really see the pattern of the leaf once the butterfly was cut out, but it does have a very cool effect on the butterfly. The sending hugs sentiment is from Altenew. It’s one of my favs for sure. Here is the video by Jennifer McGuire.

The other colorful panel is the Technique that Gina K and Rina did last week called Reverse Stenciling.  That was a lot of fun to do. I highly recommend it.  You have to look a little closer to see the butterfly.  The thanks die is from Saavy as well.

Thanks Kindly

Hi,  Hope you are doing well and staying safe the best you can these days.  We have a great color trio starting today at Just Us Girls. The colors as you see are Light Grey, Teal, and Mustard. Today’s card is a CASE of this card Here.  I love taking a card I admire and creating it myself, and I personally think it’s a great compliment to the original designer.

I just love this Stampin Up set called Bloom and Grow. I didn’t do my card in the most logical way.  I am having a run of stupidity this week, and It’s becoming a serious problem.  I wish I was kidding.  I am going to refer to it as Pandemic brain. I think we could collectively use that excuse for just about anything that goes wrong in our life these days. Join me! Don’t take the fall alone. LOL

Anyways, as for my stupidity, I ended up sponging the background last instead of first and it caused a little bit of a muted look on my flowers. I used Copics and the sentiment is also Stampin Up.

I hope you pop on over to JUGS and join us! The team did another great job this week.  Take care, Nanc’

Fancy Fold…Not Very Fancy

Hi, Hope this post finds you holding up okay. I am trying my best.  I just asked my Alexa to play some Happy music and I am sipping an Iced Coffee from Dunkin, so far so good. The coffee runs are becoming a serious problem. Do you think it’s normal that they know us by voice in the drive-thru at Dunkin? LOL Today I have a card for The Paper Players where they asked us to do a fancy fold.  This is not something I do on a regular basis. I am a plain and simple A2 kinda gal, so this is what I came up with, as it was safe and quick. Don’t want to do much to rustle my feathers these days. The news has that job!  LOL

As you can see all you have to do is add another score line at 1 1/2 inches.  Pretty fancy huh? LOL I used a Digi stamp from Power Poppy for my card and a mix of Copics and colored pencils. I have no idea where I got the thx die-cut as it was in my bits and boxes drawer. I dotted my background once again with a Copic as I can’t leave them plain white these days.

Big cyber hugs to all of you.  If you are struggling as I was this morning, try some happy music or Dunkin… it helps, Nanc’
