I hope you have a fantastic day and will consider joining us over at Just Us Girls.  The team and our Guest Karren hit this challenge out of the park.  Come on over an check  out all the Purple cards.  If you join us you might even be selected as our Chic of the Week and then have the opportunity to be our guest too.   Take care, Nanc’

Card info: First one is made with SU supplies/ Love the paper pieced die-flower.

Second card: Ornament ( stamped and lightly watercolored), Sentiment is Verve, the Bows are Paper Smooches and the Background stamp is from Stampabilities.

Teal and White at STB!

Hello Friends,  We have a great color combo this time over at Seize the Birthday! Teal is one of my all time favorite colors and I just love the look of it paired with white as you can see above.  It’s just so clean and fresh looking, don’t ya think?

Here are a few details of what I used to make my card. Sentiment and leaves are from Verve, EF and butterfly is SU, the scalloped rectangles are from MFT. Some black Nuvo drops and glossy accents on the butterfly and I was done.

Please come on over to STB and check out what the rest of the team and our Surprise Party Guest Kim have done.  Some serious eye candy there! Nanc’

Keep Calm and Celebrate!

Hello,  It’s time for our next Topping over at Seize the Birthday!  This time around the topping is Coffee or Tea! Also, if you don’t want to incorporate the topping you don’t have to, it just must be a birthday related!  Not sure yet how I feel about this card!  It evolved so many times, that I think I am just kinda tired of looking at it! You know what I mean? LOL. If there is anything I like about this card, it’s the Coffee Set from Verve, and you thought I had packed those images away by now because of over use! LOL  The rest is a combo of MANY various products! If you have any questions just let me know!

Have a terrific rest of your week! Hugs, Nanc’

Tags at JUGS!

 

Hello Friends,  I am hosting this week over at Just Us Girls and the Trend I have chosen is TAGS!  I believe it’s something that never goes out of style! I chose to put a tag on my card, but if you decide to join us and you just want to make a tag by itself, that is okay too!  Hope to see you in our gallery!  Gotta make it short as things are a little bit crazy in my life! Take care,  Nanc’

Card Info: MFT is the primary dies used on this card, along with at Verve sentiment, verve leafs, and Gina K paper. Some Nuvo drops for my daisy centers.

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’

Have you had enough Coffee yet?

One more card using this fabulous Coffee set from Verve!  This time I am linking up to The Paper Players Sketch Challenge. I decided to make my card Vertical instead of Horizontal. I always have a devil of a time photographing horizontal cards. The square stitched dies are SU and the heart banner die at the base is Verve as well.  I made my own background paper once again.  I believe the Apricot polka dotted paper is from Bo Bunny, but don’t hold me to it.

Hope you are having a fabulous week and haven’t gotten caught by the Flu/ or Respiratory crud that is going around unlike me! 😦 Time to go heat up my coffee!  Nanc’

Can’t Get Enough Coffee…

Hello Everyone, I have another quick post for you today! I have been eyeing the January Viva La Verve Sketch all month and have finally gotten a card completed for this challenge, and let me just say in the knick of time.  Again I have used the Coffee set for Verve that I adore, although this time using the cup and saucer and that adorable spoon. I couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.  I would not survive without my java! How ’bout you?  You can’t tell in the photo, but I have glossy accents on the coffee and the spoon. This paper from Bo Bunny really was fun to work with.  I used a bit of MFT and SU dies to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping in! Have a very creative day! Nanc’

Happy New Year!

Hello,  Happy New Year to you all!  I hope your New Year is off to a great start! It’s time for our first post of 2018 over at Seize the Birthday and we are starting the year with our Anything Goes Challenge. Just remember it needs to be a Birthday theme.

I have had this piece of DP in my scraps for so long, and I was determined to find a place on a card for it, and I finally did. I paired it up with some Verve leaf dies and a sentiment, a SU EF and circle die, and some MFT flowers.  Some gold Nuvo drops to top it off.

Before I go I would also like to welcome Kristie Goulet as our Surprise Party Guest over at STB.   I have been a HUGE fan of Kristie’s for the past 8 years and am thrilled to have her guesting with us these next two months.  She is really talented and her blog Kreative Kristie is linked up for you! Please run on over and check it out!

We also have a NEW Design Team Member that I am super excited about at STB! Not only is she a hoot she is talented too! Welcome Lindsey M-P from Bashful Blogging. Please won’t you go by and check out her blog as well! 

Hope to see you around the gallery at STB! Hugs, Nanc’

Reindeer Games…

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a good start to the week! I wanted to share with you the card I made for the Fusion Card Challenge Inspiration Photo.  I just love the color combo of Kraft and Red together, so I knew right away I wanted to play along. I had intended to follow the sketch as well, but somehow I lost focus and added too many additional layers. Please tell me you do that too? I just adore this little Rudolph stamp that I colored with Copics. Then I decided I would frame him in and have him playing in a snow bank.  I thought my strips of added paper did a good job with the gingham you see all over the photo. Some sparkly snowflakes, Nuvo drops, and a Verve sentiment and I was all done.

Thanks for checkin’ on me and have a wonderful day!

I am back to the studio, as I need about a dozen more cards! Nanc’

Merry Monday Times 3!

When I saw the colors that Colleen chose over at Merry Monday I knew I had to take the time to play along! I had so much fun with these colors that I couldn’t stop. I think the one I showcased up top came out the best, but here are the other two as well.

The supplies are a mix and match of this and that.  The ornaments and sentiments are all Verve.  The two trees are stamps I picked up at a LSS. I started off sponging my backgrounds with some various inks and then did some heat embossing. All Christmas cards need a little shimmer so I used some silver glitter paper too!

I sure appreciate you stopping by, Hope your day is completely fabulous! Nanc’
