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’

Monochrome at The Flower Challenge

Hello,  Hope your day is going well!  Today’s card all started with the negative piece of my very last card I posted.  I also wanted to join in this months The Flower Challenge where the theme is Monochrome.  It’s always fun and a bit challenging to me to make a card in basically all one color, but when it’s pink, it makes it all that much easier. LOL I found this glittery pink heart in a bit box on my desk and I knew it was going to be the perfect added touch.  I made the banner myself with a left over piece of scrap too. How many bit boxes do you have in your craft room? I have several, and vow to organize them by summers end…I can’t throw anything away.

A few card Details:  SU Paper that was colored with Oxide Inks, MFT Stitched Flowers, Verve sentiment and U die.

I hope you find sometime to get creative! Nanc’

Heartfelt Thanks

Got a quick post for you today for the great Sketch over at The Paper Players Challenge along with day 25 of the 30 day Coloring Challenge. I have missed three out of the 25 days, but I am pretty happy with those results.  Hopefully, I can finish strong. I colored the above image with Prisma Colored pencils.  This is one of my go to images and color combos with this particular stamp. It’s one of my favs!  Love the look of sandpaper on white core paper. If you haven’t tried it you must!

Take care, Nanc’

Trees at Twofer!

I have wanted so badly to join in the fun over at the Twofer Challenge this month, and couldn’t seem to settle on the perfect stamp. Then I came across a never used stamp set from Altenew, that I completely forgot I had.  They so happen to be trees!  Apple trees actually. It was fate, I tell you!  If you aren’t familiar with the Twofer Challenge you have to go check it out!  You take their theme of the month and make two completely different cards using the same stamp/ die or what have you. Darnell and the team are fabulous!

On the Elephant card I used the tops of the tree to make the clouds, the grass, bushes, and to color my balloon. Here is a picture of the stamp set so you may understand it better.  On the tree card, it was a bit tricky to line the stamps up perfectly even after lots of practice.  I think they look pretty good, but the yellow one is the best!

I so appreciate your visit.  Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

A Good Egg!

I have a quick card for you today. It’s similar to one I have done before and liked so much, I thought I would do it again.  I also needed a thank you card and thought this would do just fine.  All the products that I have used are from Stampin Up.  I chose to use colored pencil for my medium.  It also qualifies for the 30 Day coloring challenge day 19!

I am linking this card up with the Paper Players where the challenge is Birds.

Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

This Little Piggy…

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start! Today over at Just Us Girls our word of the week is Outside.  Bobby our DT member always comes up with the best challenges. This little piggy set is one I get a kick out of every time I pull it out. His face remind me of my childhood when I was obsessed with Charlotte’s Webb. In Elementary School my best friend Edie and I sang a Medley of songs from the movie in a talent show. I can still sing them all till this day.  Sorry about that….Focus Nancy! LOL I colored this cute little guy with Prisma Colored Pencils and did some ink stamping for the grass and sky.  In my Stampin Up club we did this type of stand up card and I thought it would be fun to do it again.

Before I go, I would like to welcome our new Guest this month and a fellow card maker and friend that I simple adore… Hannelie Bester

Welcome Hannelie!  I am so glad you are with us this month!  If you aren’t familiar with her work, you are in for a real treat!

Have an awesome day, Nanc’

A Note to Say…

Hello, We have a fun word this week over at Just Us Girls!  SHADOWS! As you can hopefully see in my picture, I have chosen to stamp with two colors to create subtle shadows under the water, the grass and the leaves. This was a very quick card to put together.  I used my MFT Wonky Rectangles to then cut out my stamped image panel, added a sentiment, and I was done.

I would like to say a HUGE welcome to Patti Kehl !  I am a huge fan of her work and she is such a sweetheart to boot! She is our guest this month over at Just Us Girls…lucky us!! Please help us welcome her by stopping by her blog and leaving her some love!

This card is made with a Stampin Up set called Fabulous Flamingos and the Wonky Rectangles are from MFT.

See you over at JUGS! Nanc’
