Hi, Over at Addicted to Stamps and More they have a nautical picture for us to be inspired by.  I love making nautical cards, so I knew right away I would be playing along. This card was easy and fun to do.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Thank You!

Hello, The Trend at Just Us Girls this week is to make your sentiment the focal point of your card! Today’s card is made with all different sets of Stampin Up. The Victorian strip you see at the bottom is made with my Fiskars cutter.  This card came together rather quickly!

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the team’s fabulous work along with our guest Emma!

Hope to see you there! Nanc’

Just Add Ink DT Member!

Hello,  Hope your day is off to a good start! Today’s card was inspired by the colors over at Just Add Ink.  It’s been a while since I joined in their challenge and I must say they have a Design Team member at JAI that has really caught my eye as of late! Her name is Rochelle Blok.  She makes the most beautiful cards I have EVER seen using SU products! Needless to say, I have bookmarked her blog and I have become a regular snooper! I don’t think she knows she has a new stalker on her hands. LOL  The last three cards that she has posted have ALL taken my breath away! I have bookmarked her name, so you must run on over and check out her blog!

Now my card details:  All products above are SU including the DP!

Thanks for checkin’ in on me, Nanc’

CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hi Friends,  I know…I am on a role with posting! Right? It’s been a great week for sure! I have one more card for a challenge that I have been eyeing all month long and is nearly ready to close. I made it, right under the wire.  The card is for the CAS Watercolour Challenge where the challenge is something blue.  I sure hope my card qualifies for CAS. It was very simple to make and still has a lot of white space, but I am a bit afraid that I added one too many layers. Fingers crossed! But if that one is a no go….. I am also linking my card up at Inkspirational Challenge where the word is Garden.

Here are a few details:  The flower and leaves are from one of my all-time favorite Stupendous sets called Bouquet for You, and are obviously heat embossed and watercolored.  They are then fussy cut, which was not hard at all.  The white leafy swirl is from MFT and I have had it for YEARS! The double square frames were gifted to me from my friend Barb, so I am not sure whose they are. Love the look of them doubled and titled! The sentiment is from SSS.  Added some sequins and I was done.

Thanks for all the love as of late, I enjoy each an every visit and comment. Nanc’

Retro!

Boy do we have a fun challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls!  Sue is our hostess and she has picked the word Retro! How fun, right? I let my fingers do some googling to come up with an idea and I came across this photo below, and I knew it would work perfectly for my inspiration.  Then I came across this SU sentiment that reminded me of the Partridge Family lettering and I was all set. You have to come check out the rest of the cards from our DT and our newest guest Marlena McDeavittThey are all so fun!  And please welcome Marlena too while you are there!

My rings were made with my SU circle dies.

See you soon! Nanc’

Wreaths!

Hello,  Hope you’re having a great day!  I finally had a chance to join in the fun over at the Twofer Challenge. The word they have for us this month is Wreath. I just got a a new stamp set this week from Stampin Up called Wishing You Well, and I couldn’t wait to ink it up. I needed a Thank You card for a colleague at work and also wanted to get back to making some Christmas cards, so that is where my intentions began. The Christmas card sentiment die on sparkly red, SU, card stock is from a dear friend of mine. The tiny red berries were hole punched and placed by hand along with the sequins. The bow die is from Paper Smooches.  For the Thank You card, the fabulous bow and dainty flowers are also from the same SU set and the wonky rectangles are from MFT.  The sentiment is also a go to of mine from a different SU set as well. Some added sequins and I was done.

Below, I have both the cards photographed for you separately as I struggled with that when they were together.  Have a great day! Nanc’

Feathers @ Creative with Stamps!

I found a “new to me” Challenge site today called Creative with Stamps and their challenge this time around is feathers. The feather set I used above is from Papertrey Ink. It was a fun and easy card to put together.  I always enjoy the results from the embossed resist technique! The fun edge die is Papertrey too. I used Oxide inks for my background and I believe the sentiment is from Verve.

Hope you are having a creative day, Nanc’

Thankful!

I have a quick post for you today! I hope you aren’t tiring of these SU leaves as of yet, as I am just getting started….LOL.  This card was inspired by three different challenges.  The first was Fusion Card Challenge where they have a Fabulous fall photo, secondly…. Inkspirational Challenges where the requirement is vellum, and the last but not least…. is Time Out Challenges, where they have a phrase about being grateful. It was so easy to get inspired with that gorgeous front porch scattered with leaves.  I also thought the Vellum tied in really well with the illuminated candles.  I blended oxide inks on my white leaves to begin with and then sprinkled them with water, Then I heat embossed my sentiment on vellum. I added some orange gems and some Nuvo drops to finish it off.  

I am so thankful for your visits! HUGS!  Nanc’

Fast Watercoloring

Hello,  I don’t have a lot of time today to write the post, so let’s get right to it! Today’s Trend challenge over at Just Us Girls is Fast Watercoloring. If you haven’t done this technique before…. you MUST give it a try! It’s really a lot of fun!  Thanks Sue for pushing me outside my normal way of coloring and card making.  I knew Beautiful Day by Altenew would be the perfect set for this technique.

Here is a link to Jennifer McGuire’s Fast Watercolors

I sure hope you run on over to JUGS and check out my teammates cards, along with our Guests Ros Crawford.  Hugs, Nanc’
