Wedding on the Brain!

 

Hello Friends,  I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and we are in full fledge wedding planning at our house, so the Photo I was inspired by this week, fits my mind set perfectly! I hope you enjoy it!  Remember, you don’t have to make a Wedding card per say, however the photo inspires you is all you need to do!  All the products you see here are from SU. This card was very tough to photograph because of the shimmery silver paper and the silver embossing powder, but what can you do! Please come on over and join my fellow teammates and I this week!

Take care, Nanc’

Hearts and Flowers

dsc_0067

My friend Judy is hosting over at The Mod Squad, and as soon as I saw her challenge I just knew I had to find sometime to play along. She has asked us to incorporate hearts and or flowers on our card and or project. Then I went searching for a bit more inspiration and I came across this great quilt over at The Fusion Card Challenge.  Finally, I also realized that The Paper Players was having a Valentine challenge and the search stopped there.  I snuck into my craft room before the Football Game (that ended poorly…I might add…what can I say I always root for the under-dog) and in between loads of laundry on Sunday, this is what I did.  I decided to take my MFT Stitched Heart dies and lay them over some of the hearts from the MFT Heart cover plate die. Then I incorporated some MFT Stitched flowers in my design.  The sentiment is something I have had for quite a while and it’s from Inkadinkado.  I thought this would make a nice Valentine’s day card. The Dp I used is a pack from Stampin Up that I really love!

Water- Colored Wedding Card

DSC_0127Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 2.58.55 PMHello friends,  I made this card for my niece’s wedding that I actually am attending today!  Please pray for no rain as the wedding is outside! As you can tell it’s Trend Week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has asked us to do some Water-Coloring, which I really do enjoy.  The Water-Colored flowers are from Stampendous, the sentiments are a mix of Stampin Up and who knows what. LOL  I am having a “Dory” moment.

Now, you have got to rush on over to Just Us Girls and check out that rest of the cards from the DT and our Guest Colleen…they are all incredible!  See ya soon! Nanc’DSC_0128

Vellum-Bridal Shower

DSC_0139 Screen Shot 2016-04-08 at 11.36.27 AM

Hello Friends,  First let me apologize for the poor photo.  This was one of those days where I was a tad rushed.  Someone asked me at school to make a quick wedding card that they needed the very next day, so I didn’t get the chance to play around with the lightning. I assure you that the bottom of the wedding dress does indeed have a vellum panel overlay, as the challenge is in fact to use vellum this week over at Just Us Girls.  The dress is something I quickly sketched and traced, the EF makes a nice touch to the dress don’t you think?  I used a MS punch to create the bottom scallop and the white flowers are also made with a MS punch as well. The sentiment is heat embossed on vellum and is from Stampin Up.  I added a piece of ribbon, some hearts, and rhinestones and I was finished.  I have seen many variations of a wedding dress like this over on Pinterest, so the original idea is not my own.

Please come on over this week to Just Us Girls and check out what my fabulous team and guest Aileen did using vellum too!  Take care, Nancy

June Weddings

Unknown

Hello Friends,  The month of June is about to come to an end, but before it is done I do have a wedding card for you.  After all, June is known to be ” Wedding Month” now isn’t it.  My family and I are headed to Michigan in a couple of days to attend my niece’s wedding.  Not sure who is more excited…. my son, his first Vacation since he gradated from High-school.(No joke) Although, he did inform me yesterday that he will be working some while we are gone…that kid of mine never quits. Our brother in-law is excited too.  He informed us today that he has every single sporting equipment that you can think of laid out and ready to go.  The only thing I am a little concerned about is all the rain they have been having and the swimming pool is only 60 degrees. Brrrrr.  We are looking forward to having the family all together for sure!  Ty’s girlfriend is coming with us too, however she has been warned that the Leppek family is a little crazy. LOL  Should be good fun!  Sorry, my upcoming vacation is not what you came by to listen to now is it.  The photo of this card makes the card look as if the colors don’t match. However, you will have to trust me that the light brown is more of a tan and does contrast beautifully.  I have made a card similar to this one in the past and I just love the look of it with those cute hearts.  I don’t think you need much info on this card other then….the sentiment is from Stampin UP and the heart border is a punch from Martha Stewart.

I am also linking my card up to the following challenges;  Time Out Challenges where the challenge is inspired by these words…..Happy is the Bride that the Sun Shines on.  And over at Freshly Made they are asking for either a monochromatic theme and or a stencil theme.  I think it’s quite obvious I went with the monochromatic only.

Until next time…find sometime to be creative…it’s good for the soul.  Nanc’1

Black and White with….

Happy Three Day Weekend….. WooHooooooo!

If you are not fortunate enough to have a three day weekend like me…well then my deepest apologies for my greeting. :/

Anyways, unto the real reason why you payed me a visit.  The card I have for you today….. I can not take credit for this brilliant idea.  I saw this a ways back on Pinterest and this is my interpretation of it. This card was given to a co-worker at my school.  After I made this card…I also made a replica of it on a giant piece of Construction paper and we hung it up at the surprise shower we had for her at work.  Of course I do not have a photo of it (insert sad face here).  It was even cooler than the card, because I couldn’t run it through an embossing folder (lol) so I punched out about 30 flowers and they were glued on the dress instead.  They popped up and looked 3-dimensional.  It looked really great!  You will have to trust me on this!  I am entering this card in a challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More…this is a new blog I stumbled upon and I enjoy playing along with them. The challenge was to use Black and White with a splash of color if you want to.   Go check them out and give them a try!

Best Wishes…

Tonight’s quick post is for three challenges.  We have the Shabby Chic or Vintage challenge over at The Pink Elephant, the color challenge over at CR84FN, and I combined those with the sketch challenge over at ispy Sketches.   This card is for a co-worker who obviously is soon to be married.  The photo shows that my grays are totally contrasting when actually they are almost the same hue, one is just a lighter shade than the other.  😦

Some card details:

Paper: SU, Gkd, and CM

Sentiment: Computer generated

Cutllebug, Cricut  3-Spellbinders

Pearls, ribbon, flowers,gems, and pop dots.

I tried to add some texture to my paper with a little distressing.

Have a great Sunday,

Blog Inspired Card…

At Casual Friday’s they asked us to make a card inspired by our personal blog header.  Well, my blog is in the middle of a transition and the header I currently have is really, really boring!  But, I did what I was told…lol and decided to make a card using the Aqua color that you can see throughout.  Also, I was asked by a co-worker to design a Bridesmaid card…so I married the two challenges together…pun intended!  LOL  I didn’t have a lot of time to do this today so I think if I had to do it again I would add a little bit more detail on the flowers and maybe run them through my cuttlebug.  Hope she likes it!

If you have any questions…let me know!  Have a great week!

Wedding Challenge

Hello crafty peeps!  I was perusing the popular pinterest as I sometimes do…wink wink….and came across the lovely Wedding card.  I was asked by a co-worker to make a wedding card that week and felt it was fate!  So I can’t take credit for the original idea, but I was pleased with the results and so was my co-worker.  I am also entering it into 2 challenges the first is a challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge to make something for or about a wedding.  It’s a new challenge blog that I found.   And the 2nd one is a Sketch challenge over at Retro Sketches….this is one of my New favorite Challenge sites! I rotated the sketch onto it’s side!  I love the sketches these ladies come up with!  You have plenty of time to play along!   Go and have yourself a looksie!

Enjoy your weekend,
