Otter and Seal Valentines!

Hello, I know, I know! I can’t help myself. I am on a make-your-own background with Otters and Seals kick right now because they make perfect Valentines, and I am in Love!

I am playing along over at The Paper Players where they have a Love and Friendship Theme going on and also joining in with Happy Little Stampers-Anything Goes Stencil Challenge.

Card Details: The pool stencil is from MFT. The otters are MFT. The seal is from Sunny Studios. The greetings are either MFT, Sunny Studios, and or a mix of SU and Verve. The fish are SU and I made a free-form and heart stencil myself. The speech bubble is SU. I used Oxide Inks, Copics, and Prismas to color.

Thanks for check-in in on me! Have a lovely creative day! Nanc’

There’s No-Otter Like You!

Hello, I hope you are doing well! Today’s card was inspired by two challenges. Festive Friday‘s Inspirational list was perfect for Valentine’s Day and I am also linking up with Retro Rubber Challenge where the theme is Love, Love, Love.

Anyone that follows me and my card-making journey knows that I love the make heart backgrounds so that is what I have done for you today. For Festive Friday, I chose Pink, Hearts, and Cute! I am not sure there is anything cuter than this MFT otter. For Red Rubber, I found out that this sweet otter set from MFT was released in 2017.

To go along with the name of my Blog and my love for using hearts on my cards, I asked hubby to make me a wooden ornament to use as a prop for photographing my cards. I love the way it came out. If you have never seen my hubby’s work I have his blog linked up for you HERE! At the top of his blog there are many tabs to make it a bit easier to navigate. He has a mix of everything…wood-working, colored pencil, wooden ornaments… etc. You must check out the wooden ornaments that he sells here locally they are amazing!

Card Details: The heart stencil background is from Honey Bee Stamps, the otter is from MFT, the speech bubble outline is from SU. I used Copics and a bit of Prismas colored pencils as my medium and dimensionals for height.

I hope you find some time to be creative, it really is helping me through these hard days! Nanc’

Crazy About You!

Hello, It is another dreary day here in the sunshine state and I decided in between some chores and a grueling headache I would try to make a Valentine card or two. I have been missing out on joining along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge the last month or so and as soon as I saw that LeAnne had some Valentine-type squares on her board this week, I knew I wanted to play along. I chose the last row; Any Shape Die Cut, Love Sentiment, and Glitz or Glitter. If you can’t tell the heart is die-cut out of glimmer paper.

Here is card number 2!

Card Details: I finally got my hands on my favorite bear from Ellen Hutson and won’t have to borrow him anymore from my stamping friend. The stencils are from Honey Bee Stamps, the speech bubble is SU, Love die is Gina K. ,the greetings are a mix of Verve and SU. The heart was cut out of sparkly SU paper. The postage die is Hero Arts. Mr. Bear is colored quickly and terribly with Copics that are unfortunately running dry!

Thanks for coming by and please take care, Nanc’

Love-Valentine

Hello, Over at the Global Design Project they have a Valentine theme challenge going on. As soon as I saw the graphic with the little envelope, I remembered I had a SSS envelope die I had yet to use and it even comes with a small card die too. The envelope is really cute as the front of it has a heart window in it. That is where I got my little hearts from to splatter around the card. The tiny black ones are a stamp. The sentiments were masked off to fit and are from SU and Verve. A cute and easy card to throw together on this dreary cold Wednesday!

Since the envelope die-cut was NEW and used for the first time I am also linking up with sweet Darnell over at NBUS!

Card Details are above!

I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Love You-Valentine

Hello, I am back yet again with another card, and this time it’s a Valentine for my sweet hubby! Hopefully, he won’t decide to visit my blog in the next couple of weeks. This time I am playing along with my sweet friends over at The Paper Players. I knew what stamp set I wanted to use and as soon as I saw Jaydee’s sketch an idea came to mind. Thanks, Jaydee!

Here is a close-up so you can see the glossy accents that I put on the red hearts.

Going to join in the Addicted to Stamps and More Make your Mark Challenge too.

Card Details: The gnome stamp is from Whimsy Stamps, the heart envelope is a stamp from Verve, the love die is from Gina K Designs. I used Prismas and Copics as my medium. I used Glossy accents for my hearts to give them some shine.

I hope you are enjoying your day and finding some time to be creative, Nanc’

LOVE

Hello, Hope your week is starting well. The card I have for you today was inspired by the first challenge of 2022 over at The Paper Players. The theme that Ann selected is to add sparkle. I found this pretty pink shimmery cardstock, that I nearly forgot I had, and thought it would be perfect for this challenge and to start on some love themed cards too. I thought my Christmas cactus made a nice backdrop. They are so pretty and I wish they bloomed more than once a year, but then I guess they would have to be renamed to something else. LOL

Card Details: The heart die and Love dies are from Simons Says Stamps. The U die is from Verve.

We are having car problems and are a single car family so looks like I will be stuck home for a few days. Oh, darn! More time to craft! Although, I should take the Christmas tree down instead….NAH!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’

Card Details: Stamps- Stampin UP, Martha Stewart border punch, The heart dies are from MFT.

Have a great day! Nanc’

Love…You

Hello, I am here with two nearly identical Valentine cards for a couple of challenges. These cards are quick and simple and easy to mass-produce.  The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps, the heart flower die is also Simon Says and the You sentiment is from Verve. I am linking these cards up over at The Card Concept where my style is CLEAN and LAYERED and Casology where the word is Sweetheart.

Thanks for popping in! Nanc’

Affectionate

Hello, I saw a perfect word over at Time Out Challenges and I knew right away what I was going to use.  The word is Affectionate!  I had two beautiful pieces of DP from Bo Bunny that I have been itching to use on a card. The paper did all the work for me.  If you have never seen their paper you are in for a treat!  You have been warned! LOL I paired it with this great stamp set from SU to make the card complete. Some added hearts, gems, and pop dots and I was done.  This card is going to the store this week for Valentine’s Day they apparently sold out.

I was perusing the internet and I stumbled upon a new to me challenge site called TGIF Challenges and I would love to link my card up there as well! They have a Valentine’s theme going on too.  Love when I find new challenges, don’t you?  My card says Happy Valentine’s Day in the inside!

Finally, I am linking up once again with The Paper Players where they have a theme of Love is in the Air!

I am so happy you stopped by, Nanc’
