Shower is the Word

Hello Friends, It’s Word week at Just Us Girls and the word is Shower.  As you can tell from the card above, I went with Baby Shower. I actually made 4 of these cards, two girls and two boys.  They are fast and fun to do.  The DP is from Stampin Up and I have been using it so sparingly, as I love it so much and it’s no longer available. The boat and sentiment are from Verve! The circle dies are either Nestabilities or SU.

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the rest of the teams cards and while you are there help us welcome our new Guest-Darnell!  She is one of the funniest and kindest ladies in blog land!! If you are not familiar with her you MUST visit her blog! I have it linked for you! We are so lucky to have her with us this month!  Take care, Nanc’

Splatter at STB!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a great day so far! I had such a great time making this card with some of my favorite stamp sets.  I had the PI girl colored with colored pencil for quite sometime and I am so glad I waited till after I got my Oxide Inks to put the card together. My new inks matched perfectly with the colors I had chosen to color her with.  Love when that happens…don’t you?  This card is for our challenge over at Seize the Birthday for the next two weeks.  The topping I chose this time around is Splatter! It’s such a fun technique that generally gives such great results! I feel like it kicks up the card a notch or two. Of course after I made my splats, I remembered I had a punch that might be fun to use as well and then that is how the paint brush came to be.  The perfectly uniformed round spots were made from a stamp from Gina K.

I think I rambled long enough! Hope you will consider joining the team and I at Seize the Birthday…we would love to have you! Nanc’

Supplies: Oxide inks,  MFT Stitched rectangles, stitched banners and PI-, Sentiment is Verve, Paintbrush is Paper Smooches, circles-Gna K.

Twins!

Hello Friends,  Hope you are having a great day!  I needed a baby card for a friend who’s daughter was having Twins so I combined that need with our Color Week at JUGS, where I happen to be hosting for the second week in a row! There is so much I adore about this card; Polka Dots, stitched stars and elephants! How can it get any better!  This adorable elephant is from Verve! He is one of my all time favorite go to stamps for Baby cards!

I would be tickled if you would come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week! Take care, Nanc’

Red, White and You!

Hello Friends,  I just got back from a fabulous vacation in Colorado and I am already trying to figure out where we are going for our next big trip.  We are going to Seattle and Victoria Canada in a couple of weeks as well, and I can’t wait! It’s been way to long since I hugged my boy!  I am really getting spoiled this summer!  Okay, onto the real reason you stopped by.  Over at Seize the Birthday our next Topping is Red, White and You.  I thought it was appropriate since we just finished up our Independence Day celebration here in the U.S. a few days ago. The YOU part of the challenge means the Color of your choice.  As you can see in the photo I chose Black as my third color.  I made this card for my future Daughter in Law’s Birthday last month and I hope she liked it.  You have to read it correctly…SMILE…It’s your Birthday…It’s your Birthday.  Not sure you understand where I am coming from with that since we have no audio…but she did. LOL

Please come on by STB and join us and while you are there help me welcome our new Surprise Party Guest- Lindsey Martin-Penny.

Take care, Nanc’

Supplies * MFT Flowers and banner, SU- Stitched Circles, Verve sentiment, the word Smile is something I picked up at Michaels.

A Different Look…

Hello Friends,  If today’s card looks similar to you it’s because it is in fact similar to one I posted a few months ago. I was in the need for a belated Graduation card so I decided to CASE myself.  HERE is the original one if you are curious. I like this one a tad better. It also so happens to fit the challenge over at The Paper Players this week so a win win for me.

*Supplies- Boat and the stitched banner is Verve, Sentiment and paper is SU, The stitched panels and button is MFT, and that cloud is Lawn Fawn.

Have a Fabulous day! Nanc’

CASE Myself!

Hello Friends,  I made a card just like this a while back for JUGS challenge (HERE) and loved it so much that I decided to make another one for Seize the Birthday…using a different color palette of course. I couldn’t stop at one, so be on the look out for another one soon! LOL  It’s Anything Goes this time over at Seize the Birthday, so I would be tickled if you would stop on over and join us!  The DT always does a great job and I assure you that you will be inspired!  I also need to say THANKS to Cathy for being such an awesome Surprise Party Guest the past two months!  Hope to see you in our gallery again soon Cathy!

Take care,  Nanc’

Congrats on your Retirement!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a good week so far! It’s been quite wet here for the start of our Summer, and that is a good thing, as we sure did need the rain.  Today’s card is pretty much straight forward.  I started with this great Verve Butterfly stamp and some emboss resist. Then I found this great polka dotted paper to mount it on.  Not sure how I feel about the random tiny flowers now, but at the time I liked it! LOL

Please come by Just Us Girls and join us for Color Week! The team did a real fabulous job! Take care, Nanc’

One Layer Birthday Card

Hello Friends,  It’s time for our next challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  Our topping this time around is to make a one layer card.  One layer cards are a HUGE challenge for me…I don’t know about you! However, it’s good to push ourselves to try things we struggle with now and again.  So I forged ahead and muddled through.  The card IRL is a lot prettier than how it photographed.  I have been wanting to try white colored pencil on Kraft card stock and I must say I love the look of it.  I decided when I was finished, that the leaves needed a bit more contrast, (and a voice inside me said, “Don’t try it Leppek you’re going to ruin it?”) I didn’t listen…. and I pulled out a light green colored pencil followed by some cover up tan.  So pay NOOOOO attention to the prominently darker leaf on the far side of the card…LOL  The flower is from Verve and the the leaves are from MFT.  The sentiment is one I have become rather fond (redundant) of by Stampin Up. I added the black lines with a sharpie for the heck of it. NOT PICTURED; The Wink of Stella I added to the flowers. LOL Boy I’m in a snarky mood today!  This card is already in the hands of a good friend of mine…I hope she liked it! Please come by and join us at STB.  My design team KILLED IT! WOWZA!  Nanc’
