Hearts

Hello, I hope your day is off to a great start! Today I have a couple of cards for you with Hearts in mind, as I am playing along with the Twofer Challenge this month where they are celebrating their Second Anniversary!  Congrat Darnell and team! You know how much I love this challenge site and I hope you are around for many more years to come.  I am also going to link one of my cards up over at CAS Stencil where they asked us to use a “New” stencil.  The cards all began with this great Die cut from Stampin UP called Bloomin Heart.  It’s so intricate and is pretty all by itself.

Fo the wood grain Valentine card, I added some red florals that come along in the die set along with a LOVE die cut from Simon Says Stamps. I used both red and gold paper for a layered look. The YOU sentiment is from Verve along with the banner die which I doubled as well.

For the floral birthday card, I used this new stencil called Lovely Lace from Gina K. Designs.  I posted a card yesterday using the same stencil and that was the first time I had used it.   I made about five different panels in an array of colors, as they were so pretty and easy to do.  I just love the Pink Oxide ink called Worn Lipstick, don’t you? The heart die is also sponged with the Oxide Ink along with the Victorian border die on the bottom. The YOU letter dies and the solid Heart Die are both MFT. The sentiment is Verve.

Here is the pink one by itself.

I hope you have a very creative day and thanks so much for popping in! Nanc’

Love is in the Air

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start.  It’s February, and time to get out those Love theme stamps.  The card I have for you today is for The Paper Players where they have a Love inspired theme for us to get inspired by and over at Time Out Challenges they also have a Love themed photo too. You can’t have a Valentine card without red somewhere….Right? I have had this SU set for over a month or two now and have been waiting for February to give it a try.  I can tell it will be one I will be using again and again, and I haven’t even used one of the dies that comes in the set that is a complete puzzle. Fun Fun!

Nearly all the products are SU and the DP is Bo Bunny. Isn’t it gorgeous? The large stitched rectangle is MFT.

I am so glad you stopped by! Nanc’

Love YOU!

Hello there,  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a new challenge starting and the word Ina has for us this week is LOVE!  Easy huh?  I stepped out of the box a bit and decided to do something that wasn’t red, which is the typical color we all think of when you hear that word. I also would like to welcome out guest designer…Lisa Elton, https://mypapertales.blogspot.com/.  She will be with us all month! Welcome Lisa, we are thrilled you are joining us!

Here is a bit about my card!  Flower is very dear to me and is from Verve! One of my first stamps I ever bought from Julee. The leaves are a punch from SU and then embossed for added texture. The flowers were colored using the smooshing technique and oxide inks. I think they came out great! The heart die is from MFT, the love die is from Neat and Tangled and the you is Simon Says Stamps. The background was lightly stenciled.

I am so happy you paid me a visit.  If you are creating this week…please won’t you join us! Nanc’

More Valentine’s and Meeting Online Friends!

Hello,  I have another fun Valentine for you this week! It’s for the Theme Challenge over at The Paper Players. This Text Ya Later set is from Stampin Up and boy do I see many possibilities of future cards with this fun Stamp set. Sorry for the startling bright photo.  I am playing around with the camera set up and it’s still a work in progress. I incorporated some other SU sentiments onto this card in order to achieve my Valentine greetings.

Before I go, I had the pleasure of meeting in person one of The Paper Players talented Team Members yesterday (who always so happens to be on Seize the Birthday with me.) Sandy Mathis and her hubby were driving right by my area yesterday, so JoAnn Burnham (who also is on STB with us) and I met up with the pair of them.  It’s times like these that always makes me feel grateful for this Hobby of mine! Thanks so much Sandy and Bill! It was a pleasure to share a meal with you both and meet you in real life! JoAnn, it’s always nice to see you too!  Next time, we have to do some shopping and stamping too! HUGS to you all!

I am also linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Holiday Challenge!

I so appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! Nanc’

I chose to sit down in the photo so I could hide my height! 😉

Love is the Word!

Hello and Happy Weekend, We have the perfect Word for you this week over at Just Us Girls!  The word is LOVE!  I have another Verve set for you today that just so happens to have a coffee cup on it, and you thought I was all through with the Coffee binge that I seem to be stuck on lately!  Well, not quite yet! This set actually is a digi set.  You must go check it out HERE! I used a bit of MFT, Spellbinders, and SU dies, and a really fun Paper die cut from Paper Smooches.  The love square is actually DP and not a stamp.

I am also linking my card up over at The Tic Tac Toe Challenge where I have selected the top row of Sentiment, Red and Heart and over at Stamp, Ink, Paper where the Challenge is All you Need is Love.

I so appreciate you stopping by!  Please go check out the rest of the DT’s creations over at JUGS and help me in welcoming Tenia ( Everyone knows Tenia from Jazzy Paper Design) to the Team this month as our Guest! Nanc’

Love Notes at TPP

Hello Friends,  I had a short time to play in my studio on Sunday and as soon as I saw the challenge over at The Paper Players I knew it would work perfectly for the amount of time I had carved away. Love the look of inlay die-cuts don’t you?

The heart dies are MFT, the i die is from Verve, and the You and all the paper is SU.

Have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Love From Me Digi

mojo483Hello Friends,  I have been eyeing this sketch over at Mojo Monday and  finally found sometime to play along.  In addition, Julee Tilman from Verve has so graciously once again created a FREE digi set for us to use! You can find it HERE!  It’s till available for a few more days, so you must go and get it before it’s to late!  She also has a Love From Me challenge and giveaway going on with her digi set over at the Verve BlogI fell in love with the sentiment that I used on both of my cards instantly! It made a perfect Valentine for my hubby, since he is indeed my best friend.  I just have to decide which one I am going to give to him, probably the one with the paintbrush.  I combined her free set with some Stampin Up paper and oval and circle stitched dies, a MFT stitched heart die and scalloped border die, my favorite Verve heart border die, and two stamp sets called Positive Strokes and I Heart Art from Paper Smooches.  I cut two heart border dies one back and one white for the second card and glued back in the white hearts so as not to see all the paper and such behind the openings. I paper pieced the paintbrush.

I sure hope you will swing on by the blogs that I have linked up for you and take advantage of Julee’s kindness. Thanks so very much Julee, I will be using the digi again soon!  Take care, Nanc’

More Hearts!

First off, I guess I should apologize for this post in advance! YES, you were forewarned a few days back that I was madly addicted to this Blooming Heart Die from SU, so I don’t feel too bad about it. LOL This first card is being entered over at The Card Concept where they have this great Valentine cookie image with flowers on top. This time I decided to layer the two single heart dies together with out placing one back in the negative die like I had been doing lately, and I really love the look of it! I would call my style on this card Clean and Layered.

I decided I better put the next ones in a collage for you to speed things up a bit.

Love You-Happy Birthday

DSC_0047Hello Friends, As promised, here is another card using my new SU Bloomin Heart Die and matching stamp set. So far I have made about ten cards with this die and I am not sure I am quite ready to pack it up as of yet.  This particular card was inspired by the following challenges.  I think the silver paper really stepped this card up a notch.   If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask.  Now it’s time for a Football Game!  Go Broncos, but I really wouldn’t mind if the Panthers won either.  I personally just like Manning better over Newton. I hope it’s a good game. I know there will be a commercial about the “Alexa” which is the amazing department my son is involved with at Amazon, so I am excited to see that one for sure!  Take care, Nanc’

Valentine is the Word!

DSC_0043Screen Shot 2016-01-10 at 1.52.53 PMHello Friends,  It’s February already and LOVE month and Vicki has chosen the perfect word for us over at Just Us Girls. The word is Valentine.  Just a few days ago my Stampin Up order came in and I am over the top thrilled with this New Blossom Heart Thinlit die-cut and matching stamp set!  I was having so much fun the other night that I made four cards using these sets. That never happens at one sitting.  Isn’t that heart the prettiest thing you have ever seen?  I am seriously in Love with it for sure!  I am warning you now, you will be seeing this a lot over the next few weeks, heck maybe the next month!

I am also linking my card up over at Sunday Stamps since they are the ones that inspired this GREAT color palette.  Next, Mod Squad just so happens to be having a hearts and flowers challenge.  Last but certainly not least, The Friday Mashup has a Valentine theme.

Before I go I want to welcome a new Guest Designer with us over at Just Us Girls.  You have seen her awesome work in blog land, I am most certain.  Welcome Pamellia Johnson!  We are thrilled to have you with us this month!

Take care,  Nanc’
