Hello

Hi, Today over at Just Us Girls it’s time for Photo Week, and my good friend and teammate Carol Mc has a fun one for us! Don’t worry if you don’t own a bike stamp or die, you can be inspired by the colors, the texture of the basket, flowers, and so forth.

I messed with this card off and on for days, and I am still not happy with the final product. The rest of the team and Carol herself did an incredible job with their cards, so you should definitely go check those out.

Card Details: I used a bit of this and that on this card. The Bike is from Momento, the flowers are from MFT, the greeting is Gina K, tags are from Pink and Main. I have a bit of shimmery cardstock underneath the bike as well.

I hope you have a wonderful day and find some time to be creative! Before I go, I need to say thanks to Deborah Wheeler for being such a fabulous guest this month! We have enjoyed having you!

Take care, Nanc’

To My Beautiful Friend

Hello, I hope your week is off to a decent start. LeAnne is the hostess this week at The Paper Players and as soon as I saw her sketch I wanted to play along. I love Sketches that have three elements on them and a dividing line. I had this fun blue piece of cardstock in my large stockpile of scraps just waiting to be used and it was the start of my color palette for this card. It was run through a crimper some time ago to give it that texture. I know I am the one that did it, but do you think I can find my crimper now? Nope! I sure hope I didn’t get rid of it. I love the look!

Here is a close-up!

I am also going to link my card up over at Happy Little Stampers -Anything Goes with Dies.

Card Details: Playful Peacock set is from MFT. The two stitched flowers are also from MFT, as is the ric-rac die. I used Copics and just a hint of Prismas for my medium. Crimper for texture on the blue cardstock.

Thanks for dropping by, I am off for a craft date with some friends today! Hope you get to do something fun that brings you joy! Nanc’

With Sympathy

I am back again today with TWO more cards that were inspired by the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and the Just Add Ink Challenge where they have asked us to CASE ourselves. I so very often do this so I knew right away I wanted to play along. For the TTT Board, I have selected the center column of; Floral, Free, and Embellishments.

Card Number 2

Here is the original card I am CASEing along with the link to the post!

Card Details: The heart stencil is from Honey Bee Stamps, the other stencil is a mystery to me but one of my favs. The Daisy wreath is from Pink Fresh Studio and is a stencil, die combo. The sentiments are SU and Verve. I used Oxide Inks for my blending. I added sequins on both cards to finish them off. The center of my Daisy has a bit of clear Nuvo drops and some glitter as well.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be back tomorrow! Take care, Nanc’

Sending You Sunshine

Hello, I hope you are doing well today! I can honestly say that the card I am sharing today, I actually am pretty happy with. That doesn’t happen all that often, so I have to acknowledge it when it does. LOL Hopefully, the recipient knows how much love I put behind making it for her, and I pray it brings her sunshine every time she sees it. I am going to be linking up this cute kitty over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Any Occasion Challenge.

A Few Card Details: Cat, bee, flower, and sentiment are all from MFT, and the sun is from Lawn Fawn. I sponged the background with Oxide inks and colored the images with Copics and Prismas. Finished it off with white splatters of paint. The inside panel is in-laid in case you can’t tell. I saw this color combo over on Pinterest and I thought it looked great together. Who says a sky has to be blue?


Here is a close-up.

I hope however you spend your day you are doing something that brings you joy! Thanks for dropping by, Nanc’

Smile

Hello, I had a chance yesterday afternoon to play in the studio for just me! No DT commitments or chores to be done and it felt so good. I hope to do more of this in the near future as we all need a little “me time” in our lives. When I decided I wanted to do some coloring I reached for my favorite dragon stamp from MFT. Next, I decided to go check out MFT’s Color Challenge and or Sketch Challenge to see if they would spark some creativity and they certainly did the trick. So I will be entering my card in both of their challenges.

Here is a close-up of Mr. Dragon. He just makes me smile. I also realized while writing up this post that I have one extra horizontal layer on my sketch and I hope it’s okay.

Card Details: MFT products- Dragon, Both Cloud dies, and the Smile die. I used Copics and a tiny bit of Prismas for my medium. The DSP is from SU. I added a few star sequins and ran my small clouds through a SU snowflake EF for some added texture. I pieced two pieces of cardstock together to make my greeting. The dragon and small clouds have multiple layers for some depth.

I certainly enjoyed both of these challenges! Take care and I hope whatever you do this weekend it will bring you a bit of JOY. Nanc’

Wishing you…

Second post of the day!

Hello, I am back again as it is the first of May, and time for the next challenge at Color Hues. Can you seriously believe it is May already? Where has this year gone? It blows my mind how fast life is going. Anyways, sweet Carol is our hostess and she picked a color combo that I really enjoyed.

Here is a close-up. I love that the tan paper already had a white core so when I tore it, it started the illusion of seafoam and all I had to do is add some sparkle.

Card Details: Birdhouse and all the small dies are from Spellbinders, the greeting is from Sunny Studios. The clouds were made with an MFT stencil. I used Oxide inks for all my blending.

I am also going to add my card over at the Simon Says Challenge where it’s Anything Goes.

Now, please head on over to Color Hues and check out the fabulous cards from our Design team along with our talented guest, Shawna. She is super talented and I have linked up her blog for you too!

I hope you do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Tri-Fold Card

Hello, Have we got a fun challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls. Lisa is our hostess and she asked for us to make a tri-fold card for Wild card Week. If you know me, I rarely make a card that is not your typical A2 size, so this was a good challenge for me. It certainly pushed me to do something different and shock my followers. LOL I did some Pinterest browsing and I stumbled upon a barn-door fold and decided to turn “My Barn” sideways.

Here are the pics of the inside!

Card Details: I didn’t give my Spellbinders bunny much love at Easter time so I thought I would bring him out once again. The clouds and balloon come from that same die set as well. The Grass is from MFT and the butterfly is from Sizzix and fussy cut. The inside greeting is from Close to My Heart and it’s an oldie but a goodie. I did use a dotted EF on my clouds.

Now, you have to come to Just Us Girls and check out all the various folds from the DT and I hope you will be brave like me and give a Tri-fold card a try! I really did enjoy the process. Before I go I want to tell Mac thanks for being an amazing guest at JUGS! It was such a delight having you along!

Take care and enjoy your day and hopefully, you will find some time to be creative! Nanc’

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello, I have a quick card for you today for the latest challenge over at Global Design Project. It is time to CASE the card they have selected for us below. I was intrigued by it the moment I saw it. I love taking foliage and gathering it on one side of a card so that is what I have done. I thought the double circle was a nice touch in front of the rectangle. My twine is a bit too thick and will make it hard to mail, but I like it.

Card Details: The dies/stamps I have used for this card are a mix of two SU sets-Sunflowers and Forever Fern. The greeting is from Sunny Studios. The DSP is SU as well.

I hope you did something today that brought you joy, Nanc’

Swing into Spring

Hello, Happy Easter to you! I have had these cute little Spellbinders set for about a month now and had yet to open it. I know, that doesn’t make much sense with it being Easter and all! At last, I had a bit of time this afternoon to finally break the seal and get this cute little bunny swinging on her swing just in time for Easter.

Here she is in motion.

I am linking up with the following challenges. NBUS

Can You Handle the Pressure– where you must use an EF and the optional theme of Easter.

And over at Happy Little Stampers-Anything Goes with Dies Challenge

Card Details: Spellbinders small die of the month-Floating Bunny. The two Embossing Folders are both from Sizzix. The little flowers are made with a little bit of this and that. Rhinestones for the flower centers. Gold glitter paper for the greeting.

I hope you had a wonderful day and did something today that brought you joy! Take care, Nanc’

Alcohol Inks and Foil

Hello, It’s Saturday once again, and time for Trend Week over at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has a fun challenge for us. She wants us to incorporate both Alcohol Ink and Foiling together. Since I have yet to purchase a foil machine, I decided to use those Gold Gilded Flakes by Nuvo to achieve the same effect. I wasn’t overly thrilled with my inked panel but in the end, once I figured out what to do with it, it came out just fine. The peacock die came to my rescue for sure and is from Poppy Stamps. The greeting is heat embossed and I believe is from Verve.

You know I love to play over at Happy Little Stampers so I will be linking up with them for their Anything Goes with Dies!

Now, jump on over to Just Us Girls and check out all the fabulous submissions by the DT and guest-Mac Mable using these types of products! I bet you will be inspired to play along! I sure hope so!

Take care, Nanc’
