FALL Porch - Fusion Challenge

This post is for the Fusion FALL PORCH challenge.

I played around with many ideas for the FALL. Here is my results. I really love the FALL and the color changes from September to November, depending on where you live. The colors are so beautiful to me, I only wish they lasted longer.
I chose the first card to enter in the Fusion Fall Porch challenge.
I think this one represents the Fusion Photo best. I left some extra distressed leaves for the photo of my card. It reminds me of the leaves in the Fusion photo blowing up against the porch.

More distressed leaves.

I used some old scrapbook stickers for the word FALL on this one.

One of my favorite leaf sets from the past.

This is just a Happy Harvest Fall card I'm using for card class.
I thought it was pretty cute.

This is on it's way to a friend. (?). Guess who.

Thanks for stopping!
Happy Fall

Tropical Chic FMS 355 Challenge

Good morning... Nancy.
Playing along with Freshly Made Sketches today.... just because it's been so long since I had post!

Here the sketch for the challenge.

Here is my card using the SU Tropical Chic.
I really do like this set as well as the matching Dies and DSP. This card is CAS was a snap to put together. I wish the true color would show better... It's probably my poor lighting for photos.

The colors in the DSP 6 X 6 are some of my favorites but they don't show up as bright as they are in real life, and I truly like all the papers. I also made a few more just to play around...of course!

Here I put the sentiment sideways.

Here the I used the strips of scrap... Waste not .. Want not. Right?

Celebration for the PP400

Today's post is to play along with the Papers Players "Celebration" challenge.
I can't believe it ...  celebrating their 400th challenge! Wow. That's amazing. 

I took the inspiration from the challenge photo of multi colored balloons. My card is multi colored but it is not balloons. The photo lighting is not the best here and the colors look a little muted, but this card is pretty in the bold colors in person, guess you'll have to take my word on that.   8-)  

I used PTI's Botanical Bounty stamp set to create a multi colored floral arrangement for a Birthday Celebration. I stamped some background greenery as well as added a few die cut branches, then popped up the die cut blooms.

I also added a few Nuvo drops for interest and dimension.

Congratulations Paper Players on your 400th Challenge Celebration!

Spring Has Sprung.... I think!

Hi there everyone ... (Nancy),

Well hopefully Spring really has Sprung here in Michigan. What a crazy year for weather. Any how, I been doing LOTS of Spring cleaning since I've gotten a fresh coat of paint on my condo, and now just ordered new carpet as well. So I decided to post  a few cards that made me think of the outdoors.

Who doesn't think of those furry friends out for a walk in the sunshine in the spring? Along with the furry friends comes foot prints and sometimes in mud, right? Yuck!  But who could get mad at these cute pups?

With spring also comes the flowers. My tulips are popping through the ground and I'm crossing my fingers there is not another frost! Soon the flower bed will be loaded with many types of blooms.

Lastly... once the blooms are in full force, I like to cut a few of fresh ones for the inside as well.

I know it's been a while, but I hope you're still out there checking in....

Brushed Birds Beauty

I am having so much fun with my new Brushed Birds stamp set. This is a multi-step stamping set with a lot of choices for bird sizes and positions. It also looks totally different depending on the color choice. Below is a few of the color combos I have tried so far.
Also these are all single layer stamping... but look totally different with 3D die cuts.

Here is the inside to the first card.
Here is my second choice using a stenciled brick background in a soft gray.
And the inside of the second card.

The last card for this post.

And the inside for the third card.

I can't wait to get the dies that match which were on back order, (darn)...  but have now been restocked and... soon to arrive on my doorstep. Yipeee!

Thanks for stopping by; and please feel free to comment  ... Nancy  8-).

Water Front

Just a few quick cards I made this weekend from the new stamp set "Waterfront" in the new Occasions Catty. There are two versions I did... one has a die cut center that is slightly raised with dimensions... the second one is a single layer of stamping only.

If you look close you'll see where the center is die cut with a stitched edge.
Try NOT to notice where the ink spots from the stamp edge.... Ha!

This card is basic stamping....

I did use some white gel pen to make waves coming into shore on this one... but not bragging where I used it on the 'birds' flying. Yipes!  Zoom at your own risk!

Have a nice day!
