Feather at CASology

Hello, I have a CAS card for you today that goes along with the word over at CASology. The word is Feather. I just love this older Stamp set from Papertrey Ink and I knew right away that I was going to watercolor it to bring it to life. I finished it off with a blue Victorian style strip down the side and some pretty turquoise sequins.  The sentiment is from Verve.

Have a terrific day, Nanc’

Designer Paper

I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and it’s time for Word Week.  My word is Designer Paper.  If you are anything like me, you have tons of DP that is being completely neglected. The piece I used on my card today is from Gina K. Designs, and I bet I have had it for at least 8 years. It’s really beautiful and I am so glad I got to put it to good use. We also have a new guest with us this month. In fact, she is a former JUG head.  Please help me welcome Chris Dring to our team for the month of October.  Hey Chris…so very glad you are joining us!

I sure hope you will also consider joining us this week, you might even be chosen as our next Guest Designer.  Give it a try! All the details are over on the blog.

Card Details: DP- Gina K., MFT stitched florals, scallop edge is MFT???, Stitched Circles are SU, Leaf die is Verve, and Nuvo drops.

I hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us! You may even end up being our next Chic of the Week.

Take care, Nanc’

Miss You…

Hi, I hope you are having a great day! Over at Creative with Stamps, they have a new challenge starting and the word this month is Tree. Being a Florida girl I went with the obvious Palm Tree. This card was fun to throw together. I am also going to link it up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!! I have a few interesting card details below:

Card Details: Oxide Ink Background, used the MFT cloud die upside down for my “White-Capped Waves”, the sandhill is sponged and splatted and then cut with an edge-die from Papertrey Ink, Palm Trees and bare feet are Kitchen Sink Stamps, the Miss You is Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc’

With Gratitude…

Hello, It may not feel like fall in my neck of the woods quite yet…or ever…LOL, but it didn’t stop me from getting out my fall decorations today along with my favorite fall leaves from SU to make a card. Before I got to work, I needed to go find some challenge blogs to play along with.  I sometimes feel like a challenge blog addict. LOL If I was retired I think I would start another one myself!  The two I am joining today are The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Challenge, where I have chosen the row going down (FALL, ORANGE, and LEAVES) and Happy Little Stampers (ANYTHING GOES WITH DIES.) Hold onto your hats folks…..I am about to say something a bit rare!! I am extremely happy with the way this card came out.  In fact, so happy that I made two of them, and one I will be sharing later next month with a JUGS challenge.

Card details: SU-cardstock, sentiment, and leaves. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for the leaves. Then did the outline in gold to match the embossed sentiment. I distressed my kraft cardstock with some oxide ink. MFT-banner die and Mod Rectangles. Gold Nuvo drops to finish it off!

So happy you stopped by, Have a creative week! Nanc’

Sunflowers

Hello, Boy was I excited when I saw this gorgeous photo for our Photo Week at Just Us Girls.  Who doesn’t love sunflowers…am I right?  I knew I had this gorgeous Gina K. sunflower stamp just waiting to be colored in my studio.  It’s not my stamp, but one I stamped when I was visiting my friend Barb this past summer.  It’s always fun perusing your friend’s collections and bringing them back home to use on future cards. Before I go I need to say thanks to Janet Ribet for being with us this month! You were a joy to have on board and do amazing work.

Have a great day and hope to see you at Just Us Girls. Who knows you may be our next guest!! Nanc’

Card Details:  Gina K-Sunflower and sentiment, Brick Wall EF-SU, MFT rectangles- both stitched and scalloped, Copic markers.

Critters and or Chickens

I am down to the wire but wanted to be sure to play along over at the Twofer Challenge.  I love this challenge and do everything in my power to play along when I can. The word Darnell has for us this month is Critters.  That leaves it wide open, as the definition is “any living creature”, hence my above chickens.  It was nice creating after dinner last night after a long Monday at work. Stamping is not something I do a lot during the week, but it was very relaxing last night and maybe I should try it more often. It helped that hubby made dinner too.

I should have left well enough alone, but unfortunately decided to outline the hey chick in brown.  Looks terrible. 😦 Such is life! 

The first card is for a good friend of mine that is need of a pick me up. I am the tall chicken In the back, as she is not even 5 feet tall. LOL The second card is a Birthday card with the sentiment on the inside.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Card details: 2-Stampin up stamp sets, EF is also SU, Dies are a mix of Sizzix, MFT and SU. Copic markers and colored pencil, and the button is from MFT. The inspiration came from this card.

I sure hope you break out those die-cuts and join us! You may even be selected as our Chic of the Week, and then a possible Guest designer with us!  Nanc’

With Sympathy with Painted Flowers

I stumbled upon a new to me card challenge site called Inspire Create Challenges and their theme this week is Sympathy. I love this stamp set called Painted Flowers that I got from my friend Bobby, and I hadn’t used it in a while. I knew it was going to make a great Sympathy card. The sentiment is heat-set with gold embossing powder. The center of the flowers were made with Nuvo drops. I watercolored my flowers a bit after I stamped them on watercolor paper, to try to get some shading.

I am also entering this card over at The Flower Challenge where it’s Anything Goes.

I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Handmade Hugs

Hello, It’s Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls and Sue has asked us to Splash something on our card. I went with the obvious splatter technique. But before I got to the fun part, I watercolored and used colored pencil on my Altenew flowers. I didn’t like the way the bottom of the card looked without the flower being grounded, so I added the extra strip of watercolored paper that I had trimmed off and the MS punch border.  I did a terrible job with the colored pencil and should have left the flower alone, but live and learn.  The splatters helped detour the eyes.  LOL  The sentiment is from MFT. Come check out all the different ways the team was inspired by this challenge.

One Layer

 

Hello, Over at Addicted to CAS they want us to make a one layer card, so that is what I have for you today!  I just love the look of ink blending using Oxide inks and sticky notes to get a straight edge. It’s quick, easy to do and usually has great results. The stamp set is from SU and I really love it a lot, I just wish it came with dies.  I really want a flamingo set with die cuts, but can’t justify having two flamingos. Do you all feel that way about buying similar stamps twice?

Thanks for the visit and have a great day! Nanc’
