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’

My Greatest Joy!

DSC_0028

Hello Friends,  Hope you are having a good day, however you wish to spend it!  This card will be on it’s way very soon to my son, inside his V-day care package. I sure hope he doesn’t decide to visit my blog any time soon. LOL Here is a photo of the original card and let’s see if you can see why I had to fix it!

DSC_0020

I didn’t even realize till I was making the post. LOL  And NO, I do not drink when I craft…but maybe I should. The card was made with the negative of the new Heart die from Stampin UP.  It’s so very pretty and on order, however I saved the negative piece from my card club class, as I thought it was so unique.  Sure glad I did! The sentiment is yet again from that Tuesday Morning set that I have been raving about! I am entering this card over at the Mod Squad challenge where two friends of mine are duo-hosting and over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is RED!

VLVJan16Sketch2Hello Friends,  As promised I am back again today with the second sketch from Viva La Verve this month. I did a bunch of layering for this card so you have to look closely to see the sketch, but I promise it’s there. The large & was cut from a full piece of 6 x 6 card stock.  I wanted the large circle in the sketch to be the bottom part of the &.  All the paper is from Stampin Up once again. The fun circle edge dies at the top and bottom of the card are from Verve, and I couldn’t live without them. I appreciate the visits and all the love you have shown me this week.  I am sure this creativity won’t last forever, so I will take what I can when it comes.  Take care, Nanc’

Viva La Verve Sketch

DSC_0482

VLVJan16Sketch1Hello Friends,  I have been on a Valentine kick as of late and what I find strange is that I am not a huge fan of the Holiday, but yet I love making the cards in that theme…Kinda bizarre I know.  I think it’s the colors and hearts that draw me in….I do love to create with hearts! Anyhoozel, I love the way this card came together so quickly, thanks to this great sketch over at Viva La Verve.  Speaking of Verve, I used their set called Take Note, that I just love, and the paper is from Stampin Up.  I will be back tomorrow with another Valentine….like I said I am feeling the LOVE!  Hope you have a wonderful day and find time to be creative!   Nanc’

CAS Valentine

DSC_0489

pp278Hello Friends,  I have a Clean and Simple card for you today that goes along with the CAS Valentine challenge over at The Paper Players!  About a month or so ago Hubby and I took a road trip to St. Pete to a very awesome Scrapbooking store and then later on to the Dali Museum where they were featuring work of Escher.  It was awesome! He was helping me look through a clearance rack at the store.  He came across this stamp set from Tuesday Morning, called Loving Words and it is FABULOUS!  I know for sure you will be seeing a lot of this set in the future. I used it for the sentiment on this card.  I like the font and the way the type set isn’t perfect and almost like a typewriter.  So at first glance you might have thought my stamping stunk, well actually…. it’s suppose to look like that. LOL  The heart was sponged using a stencil from Heidi Swap, the cute little tickets are from a Recollection Valentine set from Michaels and the paper is from Stampin Up.  Happy Creating, Nanc’

LOVE me some Brads!

DSC_0477

Screen Shot 2015-12-05 at 10.06.01 PMHello Friends,  Today’s card is for Trend Week over at Just Us Girls.  Sue has asked us to incorporate metal on our card and or project.  As I was photographing my card I realized there is NO stamping on this card whatsoever. OOPS!!!  That might be a first for me, I usually at the very least stamp the sentiment.  Anyhoo, As I tried to figure out what the heck I was going to do for this challenge I came across these old brads…remember brads???  They use to be so popular and then poof…they aren’t anymore.  I on the other hand, still use them on occasion and still have quite a variety in my stash.  Do you still use brads on your cards?   I also wanted to use my SIL Cameo to print out my you.  I wanted to print it in a script, but my machine or the operator wasn’t having it.  The paper kept ripping when I tried to get it off the mat.  After I went through an entire piece of cardstock (SU non the less, so not cheap crap) I threw in the towel and went for bold letters instead.  They came out perfectly.  I guess this girl needs a little more practice.   The little hearts were made from a punch and the cardstock is also SU.

FMS Final 218-001  I am linking this card up with the the latest Sketch over at Freshly Made.  I thought it was so unique and I knew I wanted to use it!

Hope you have a fantastic day and if you have sometime this week join us over at JUGS! You don’t have to use brads like me…..you can use foil papers, charms and or embossing powders.  We have 2 great Guest Designers with us and the team has done a wonderful job too.

Take care,  Nanc’

Another Flutter Card!

Hi Friends, I promise this will be the last card using my new  Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up from MFT! Well, at least for a little while…I do have an Anniversary on the Horizon….LOL.  I am entering this card in two challenges: The Verve’s Blog Inspiration Challenge and the Pink Elephant’s Be My Valentine challenge.  As soon as I saw the X’s and O’s on the Verve challenge photo I knew I wanted to incorporate my Verve Die Cut and coordinating Stamp Set called You and I along with my MFT Fluttering Hearts die.  It just so happens that my heart border punch die is Verve as well. My paper is from Stampin Up and Recollections.

Thanks for sticking with me through all these Valentine cards!  I promise that on Saturday I will have something so different and totally unrelated to Hearts! 🙂  Take care,  Nanc’
