Best Wishes-Flower Challenge

Hello, I hope all is well with you! I have another floral card for you today using some very pretty leaf patterned paper and my MFT lily dies. I just love these lilies and their leaves! Sadly, I don’t believe they are available any longer.

This card was totally inspired by the Flower Challenge this month. Where they are celebrating their 5th Birthday and have asked us to use a shape on our card. Congrats to them and their Superbly talented Design Team on such an accomplishment! Go check them out, they have prizes over there too!

I am also going to link up with the fun over at Happy Little Stampers Die Cut Challenge.

Card Details: The Lilies, the scalloped rectangle are from MFT. Both oval dies are from Spellbinders. I uses some Oxide Inks and a sponge dauber to give some color to my lilies. The sentiment is from SU. I used my favorite Dew Drops from Honey Bee Stamps to finish it off.

Make sure you take some time this week to be creative, it’s good for the soul. Nanc’

Black and White-Wedding Card

Hello there! I needed a wedding card and when I saw the challenge that Vicki chose for us this week at Just Us Girls I knew it would be perfect. I made a card similar to this one a few months ago and it was well received so I thought I would try it again. You can find it HERE!

Card Details: I have always been a huge fan of these old SU flowers. The sets that the flowers came from are called Flower Shop and Petite Petals. I paired them with some of the elements of the new Forever Fern stamps and dies. The greeting is from SU as well. I used white embossing powder on vellum with a grey back for my flowers and then white on white for the smaller centers of the flowers. These flowers compliment each other perfectly. Some gems for the centers. The DSP came from Hobby Lobby and I am using every scrap. Made the circle with a couple of Sizzix dies, and the victorian edge is done with my Fiskers cutter.

I hope you will stop on over to Just Us Girls and see what the fabulous team did this week along with our guest Claire!

Take care, Nanc’

Celebrate the Best Day Ever

Hi, My card for the latest Sketch Challenge at The Paper Players, hosted by the lovely Anne Marie, is a very quick one where the DSP does all the work! I was still in a bit of a time crunch this week so I unfortunately didn’t have much time to be overly creative. We all have weeks like that, and I think it’s called LIFE.

I also just noticed that my panels are centered and they shouldn’t be! UGH!

Card Details: The Greeting and rectangle die are from SU, the embossed love heart that embosses the word while cutting out the heart is a Recollections die that I have had for eons and never used. The stitched heart is from MFT. The DSP is from Hobby Lobby or Michaels.

Wishing you both…

Hello, Here we are back to Sunday once again with the next challenge over at The Paper Players. Where do the days go? Anne Marie is our hostess and her theme challenge is Hearts and or Stars. As you can see by my card above I went the Hearts route. I know many of us are in the middle of making Valentines but I needed to replenish the Wedding cards this week, so that is where my focus was when I began.

Card Details: Stitched Heart is MFT, Puzzle pieces are from Stampin Up. The greeting is Stampin Up as well and I just adore that font. I made the bow tie with a Paper Smooches die.

Wedding Wishes

Hello, It is the middle of the month already, and time for our next choice of colors at Color Hues. The colors I have chosen for us our Navy and Cream. As soon as I picked my colors I knew I was going to make a wedding card. When I think of cream I always think wedding. It’s such an elegant color don’t you think?

Here are a few card details: The fun heart die background is from MFT. The designer paper, the heart stamp, the circle die, and the greeting are from Stampin Up. The scalloped die is from Spellbinders.

You need to run on over to Color Hues and check out what the incredible design team did with the colors. We also have the fabulous Julie Peddicord joining us this time as our guest. Welcome, Julie!

Try to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Love-Color Hues

Hi,  It’s October 1st can you believe it?  I know we all are ready for 2020 to be behind us and despite how hard and yet mundane this year has been at times it’s still has gone by very quickly, in my opinion.  Today, I have for you the next duo of colors for the Color Hues Challenge.   As you can see by the graphic to the left the colors are gold and cream.

Card details: The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps and the Ribbon Heart die is from Poppy Stamps.  I added a few small hearts from a punch if you look carefully.

We not only have fabulous cards over on the blog by the design team we have our first guest designing alongside us. She was the winner for our first challenge-Come on over and see who it is!

Hope to see you at Color Hues and take care, Nanc’

Cut into Thirds

Hello, I am your hostess this week at Just Us Girls and the Trend I have chosen is to cut your card and or project into thirds. This card would work well as a wedding card in my opinion. The stamp set I used is an old one from Stampin Up that doesn’t get much use.

I sure hope you will join the girls and our guest Lindsey this week at JUGS!  They all did a great job with this challenge! Nanc’

Wedding Card

Today is Monday and instead of reporting to work, I am beginning a new chapter in this thing called life.  Now I can say I am “officially” retired.  So far so good! LOL My favorite part of my day is between the hours of 6-8 am. During that time you can find hubby and I enjoying the quietness of the new day while sipping our coffee and chatting about whatever we find on our electronic devices that we find worth sharing with one another. There is no television and it’s just peaceful. Now, this doesn’t have to occur on just weekends, holidays, or summer vacation but each and every day, and I am really excited about that! Squeal!

Speaking of new beginnings…Nothing says new start more than a wedding card and that is what I have for you today!  I am playing along with The Paper Players challenge today.

I made this card using Stampin Up products for the puzzle pieces, rectangle die, and sentiment.  The bow tie which is a tad hard to see is from Paper Smooches. It’s part of a bow missing the ribbons hanging down. For the girl puzzle piece, I used very small pearls.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Hmm….what shall I do?  Nanc’

Congratulations…

Hello,  Happy weekend! Today we have a Trend challenge starting over at Just Us Girls and Carol’s code work is Mini.  There is a various amount of ways to interpret this challenge. Whether you make small cards or maybe use miniature items on your card, etc…  What I have done with my card is to use miniature items; small hearts, small text, and small gems. I just received these fun wedding ring dies from SSS and decided to include the background text stamp from SSS as well. I don’t think I have used this stamp before either. The congratulation sentiment is from SU.  I intentionally tried to stamp the background lightly in case you were wondering.

I am also linking my cards up over at NBUS #14. 

Thanks for popping in and I hope you decide to join us this week at JUGS! Take care, Nanc’
