Hello, I am back today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Elizabeth is our hostess for Photo/Moodboard Week. She has picked a wonderful array of photos that are sure to inspire. They certainly inspired me. I was immediately drawn to the lemons in the photo and knew I had just the paper and supplies to pull it all together.
Card Details: I made my own ice cubes out of Vellum, Nuvo drops, and a bit of glitter. The large Stamp set is from MFT the word Sweet is from Jilly Bean Soup, I do belive. I heat-embossed the lemons in white on yellow paper. The glass and lemon dies are from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. I used a Hero Arts Postage Die. The lemon paper in the background is packaging left over from some Lemony cocktails I purchased eons ago. I saved it for just this very reason. I have some dimensionals for depth.
Now head on over to Just Us Girls and check out how the team and our guest-Michele were inspired and then we hope you will play along! Nanc’
Hello, It’s Saturday and you know what that means! It’s time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls! It happens to be Color Week and Ina is our hostess. I love the trio of colors she has for us; Turquoise, Mustard, and Black. Great selection, Ina!
Card Details: Today’s card came together very quickly. First, I made a stencil using Spellbinder’s Deckled Edge rectangles. Then I blended my background in Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. The butterflies are from Birch Press Designs. The pre-made foiled greeting is from Pink Fresh Studio. A small gold heart and some black Nuvo drops to finish it off, (that I regret using now.)
Now, pop on over to Just Us Girls and check out the DT’s cards along with our new fabulous guest-Michele Ferguson! Welcome, Michele! So happy you are with us this month!
Hello, It’s March 1st…say what? I can’t even believe it! Where on earth has the time gone? It is also time for the next Hues of Color at Color Hues. Carol is our wonderful hostess and she chose Gold and Green for us and hopefully you too!
Card Details: This card has a mix of everything and unfortunately even shades of cardstock that weren’t quite as prominent until I took the photo. LOL I was going through my bits and bobs and came up with a lot of what is on this card. The stamped leaves and die-cuts are all from SU and retired and the embossed piece in the background is from Spellbinders and is called Flower Frenzy. The Stitched Oval is from SU and the pre-made foiled greeting is from Pink Fresh Studio. A few sequins to tie it together.
Now, if you head on over to Color Hues you will see such a fantastic variety of cards from the Design Team. We also have a guest joining us who is my dear friend and birthday sister- Barbara Campbell. Welcome, Barb! I am very happy to have you with us!
Take care and I hope you will consider playing along with us at CH! Happy crafting! Nanc’
Hello, For today’s card, I was inspired by the fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. Since I still had Spellbinders Floating Bunny set out on my desk, I thought I would use her once again on my card. How could I not, she is just so cute! I paired her with some bold papers and from Pink and Main and an older Spellbinders set called Ornamental Floral Card Creator for my flower. The stem was made with the rope swing from the floating bunny set and the leaves are from my bits and boxes, but I know they are Spellbinders too. The greeting is also from Spellbinders. I used some chalk to rosy up her cheeks and a few sequins to finish it off.
I have everything I could find a link for, linked below. This card was finished off with a Birthday greeting inside and is already on its way to a friend.
Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am back today with another card in a different colored background using the Scroll Label Hot Foil Plate. I think pink and silver is one of my all-time favorite color combos, throw in some lilac and white and you have a winning combination, in my opinion. I combined the intricate plate with the Four Petal Bloom Reflection which is also very pretty and easy to put together. I have also used Spellbinders-Mini Everday Sentiments for my greeting. I have everything linked up for you in multiple places if you care to take a look.
Taking photos continues to be a struggle for me some days, throw in foil, and boy oh boy it’s nearly impossible. This card is really quite nice in real life.
Hello, It’s Saturday and time for Photo/Moodboard Week at Just Us Girls. Vicki is our hostess and she has a large moodboard with many possibilities for us, and hopefully you, to help spark the creative process. When I first looked at her board I was drawn to the Vanity Fair Graphic in the top corner and the two flowers front and center. I couldn’t decide which way to go, and then finally realized I could combine both of those pics into my design.
I am also playing along over at one of my other favorite challenges- Inkspirational Challenge where they want us to use Stencils.
Card Details: Gina K- Delightful Blooms Stencil in Mustard Seed Oxide Ink and Peeled Paint, Sending is from MFT, the Love and Prayers is from Gina K in her Peaceful Roses stamp set. I sponged the word Sending in yellow Oxide Ink onto yellow cardstock to give it a gradient look and shadowed it in Olive Green. The postage die is from Hero Arts.
I hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and check out the DT and our Guest- Karen’s cards and play along!
Hello, We have the prettiest Color Pairing starting today at Color Hues. Tracey is our wonderful hostess and I am smitten with her color combo. The Design Team and our guest have some truly amazing cards over on the blog, you must check them out.
We are still in the middle of a new release over at Spellbinders, so when I saw this challenge coming up at Color Hues I knew this new die cut was going to work out wonderfully. The Collection is called Four Petal and this specific die that I have used above is called the Four Petal Bloom Reflection. It is so very pretty and easy to put together. I have used the same Thanks Enclosed Sentiments as well. I have all the links below if you want to check them out.
I had such a good time putting this card together. Now, head on over to Color Hues and check out my talented team and our guest’s cards. We have my friend/teammate from STB- Linda Snodgrass joining us as our guest. Welcome, Linda!
Hello, I hope you are having a good day! I am back as promised with another card using the latest release from Spellbinders- Four Petal Collection. Today I am using two of the products from the release, The Four Petal Bloom Reflection and the Thanks Enclosed Sentiments. I am also using Spellbinder’s Elliptical Oval Die that I recently purchased. This release is so fun and has some really terrific products that you should check out. Also, if you don’t have this Elliptical Oval Die, it is so pretty and works wonderfully as a backdrop and happens to be on SALE right now!
I love how this card turned out. I am trying to make more Clean and Simple cards this year. One more note…I shortened the front panel of my card so I could incorporate the yellow stripe on the inside.
Hello, I hope you are having a great day! Today I am tickled to be the Guest Star Stamper at The Color Throwdown. If you are not familiar with this challenge, well you are missing out. If you know me you know I love Color Challenges. Fun fact, if I did my math right…I believe that the Color Throwdown has been around for about 14 years or so and that is just incredible! Way to go Color Throwdown Team, I certainly enjoy your challenge as do so many others! Today they have a fun trio of colors along with an inspirational photo that is perfect for this time of year!
Card Details: My card was inspired by a mix of a card I made about ten days or two weeks ago and this card Here. The background is a stencil from Miss Ink Stamps. The Cloud dies are from MFT. The sweet bunny and sentiment are from Avery Elle. The balloons were first striped with Copics and then cut out using a die from Spellbinders. The hearts are something I pulled out of a set and sadly now I can’t remember which one, as I leave them in a dish on my desk full time.
I am also linking my card up over at Festive Friday and I have chosen; Hearts, Pink, and Something Shiny
I certainly hope you pop on over to the Color Throwdown and check out all the inspiration from the Design Team and play along! Take care, Nanc’
Hello, It’s Saturday and time for Color Week at Just Us Girls. Lisa E is our wonderful hostess and she has a lovely color trio for us, and hopefully you. The colors are; Kraft, Pink, and White. We also have a brand new guest joining us that just so happens to be a friend of mine and fellow DT member from Color Hues… Karen Walker! Welcome Karen, I am so glad you will be with us all month long.
Card Details: All products are from Stampin Up and long since retired, sorry about that. I just adore those pink and kraft leave stamps, as they stamp so well and crisp. I used my old Fiskers cutter to make the Victorian edge.
You must run on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the fabulous Design Team did with these colors.
