Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!


Happy Birthday Dad

Hello, It is time for the next challenge at Seize the Birthday and Glenda is out hostess and she has chosen Travel as her topping. This topping has me wishing I had a trip planned in the near future, but sadly we do not. Maybe this fall, we shall see. Are you heading anywhere this year?

Card Details: I have a variety of companies for today’s cards. The Clouds, Wonky Rectangles, and the Letters are from MFT. The Water is from Stampin Up and the Boats are from Impression Obsession. The Sentiments are from Verve and MFT.

I am tossing these cards up over at the Happy Little Stampers for their Anything Goes with Dies.

Now, please head on over to STB and check out the many forms of Travel that my fabulous team and guest Melanie came up with! You are sure to be inspired.

I hope you are having a wonderful day however you choose to spend it. Nanc’


Navy, Gold and Pink

There is a fabulous color trio over at The Color Throwdown and I wanted to make sure to play along.  Not only did the colors inspire me the picture of the Fireworks did too.

 I decided to try and mimic all the streaks and colors in the sky with the splash watercoloring technique. At first I thought the flowers came out a bit too bold, but as I put the card together it started to grow on me.  I made my heart background with this very cool SU paper that works so well with Oxide inks. It does an ink resist.  I LOVE IT, but sadly I don’t believe it’s still available. I heat embossed my leaves with gold EP and punched them out with the coordinating SU punch.

I’m also linking this up over at The Paper Players where they have their 400th Celebration going on with prizes too. Congrats to The Paper Players for being around so long. We appreciate all your efforts and inspiration!

Finally, Once again over at CAS Watercolour where they have Splash Watercoloring technique challenge going on.

Thanks for stopping in…makes my day! Nanc’

Card Details: SU Flowers, leaves, and Punches, MFT Happy die and Heart die, Neat and Tangled Birthday stamp, SU background paper that I colored with Oxide inks, Nuvo drops and pink pearl accents.
