Be Scary / NAC 111

Pin It
Hey y'all. I hope those of you that live here in America had a wonderful 3 day holiday weekend. I worked most of it at my second job, but it sure was nice to get to sleep in, especially on a Monday! I also got to spend a lot of it with the babies which is always a plus. I also got a few minutes of downtime to play with this week's challenge. The Nacho's have a sketch for you this week and I'm excited to see what you create with it! Here's what I came up with-



I love being able to try new designs without any fuss or muss. I created this week's card with MDS and had fun playing. I created the banner previously, using a combination of punches, and then saved it for use later. How cool is it to be able to do that?!? So many options!!!

Here's the sketch we have for you this week-



So many options...What will you create? I can't wait to see it!

Here's some of the items I used to create this week's project

Be Awesome ? NAC 110

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Tuesday. I hope you had a good weekend and are enjoying your week so far. It's hard to believe we are already well into October. Who said that was allowed to happen!?! It's getting cold here in the DMV already, which to me means it's pretty miserable. I'm not ready for Fall yet, so I really enjoyed working with this week's Nacho Color Challenge. It was warm and fun. Here's what I came up with-




I used the Happy Things Pocket Cards MDS Download to create this and it was sooooo Quick and Easy. The best part of this card- Being Digital, the possibilities and combinations are Endless! The Polka-Dots are a stamp set from the download. I just colored them with this week's colors. The sentiment is also from the same set. I'm so happy with how this turned out. Not only do I love this as a card to give to friends, I also think this would be great to use in Project Life pages. how easy to change the colors to match your layout.

Here's this week's colors-

That's all I have for you today. I hope you like today's card and I hope it inspires you to play along with us. I can't wait to see what you create! As always if you have any questions about today's project, be sure to leave me a message below and I'll be sure to get back to you.

Love Your Guts / NAC #109

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Tuesday. I hope you're having a Great week so far. :) The Nachos have a Sketch Challenge for you this week. This is definitely a sketch that leaves a lot of room for interpretation. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I used it as a jumping off point. Here's my take on it-



I've been wanting to use my new masks and thought the hearts would be cute. My darling's on the other side of the country and blue is his favorite color so that was where I got my color inspiration. I used Island Indigo, Marina Mist, and Pool Party and my daubers to add the ink. Don't recognize the stamp set? It's from My Paper Pumpkin (MPP). I love the stamp sets that come with MPP. Here's this week's sketch-



Here's a look at the inside-



The sentiment is from the same set. I Love it! Seriously!!! :)

That's all I have for you today. I hope you liked today's card and I hope it inspires you to join along with us. As always if you have any questions, be sure to leave a comment below so I can get back to you.

Happy Halloween / NAC 108

Pin It
Hey y'all. Happy Tuesday! Well, as much as I hate to say it, Fall is apparently already on us. Sigh. According to the calendar it just arrived yesterday. I wish though that someone had told that to the weather here. I've been wearing jackets to work in the mornings. AUGH!!! That being said, the cooler weather was definitely on my mind when I was designing this week's card. The Nachos have a color challenge for you this week and the colors are soooo Yummy. They're from our new In-Colors and I can't wait to see what you create with them. Here's what I came up with-



I'm sooooo excited by how this card turned out. There were so many fun parts... the pumpkins and matching framelets, the cute little bats, the fringe scissors I finally got around to using and that beautiful DSP I used it on, the Bite Me set for the sentiment on the front and the Awesome New Rotary Stamp for the inside (L.U.V. that!).  

Here's this week's colors-


I did add the smallest amount of So Saffron for the moon, but other than that I just used the colors. I did use the Naturals Ivory cardstock and love the look it gave the card. Sometimes it really is the small things that make a big difference.

Are you loving all the bundles in the catalogs? Not only do I love not having to fussy cut, I love getting a discount when I get the bundle. LOL, that just means more money for more product! 

3 Pumpkins and 3 different framelets. So much easier than in previous years!

***Tip*** For the pumpkins I inked them up with my Tangelo Twist Ink Pad and then used a baby wipe to remove the ink from the stem. I then used my Stampin' Write Marker in Mossy Meadow to color in the stem. I keep a pack of baby wipes in my studio at all times for quick touch-ups. Have you tried them yet? They also work great as DIY stamp pads with different techniques.

***Tip #2*** When using your Fringe Scissors be sure to stop about ¾ of the way up the length of the scissors. If you go to the end you will get a little tearing at the bottom instead of crisp lines. Ask me how I know.

Here's a look at the inside-


Here's something I bet you never thought you'd hear me say... I love how the letters don't line up perfectly with the rotary stamp. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! Did you read that with Gomer Pyle's voice? Because that's surely how I wrote it. :) It reminds me of being a little girl and playing with my grandmother's rotary stamp. Funny how something small can instantly transport you somewhere else. I inked up my stamp with my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for my cute little face and my card was done. 

That's all I have for you today. I hope you liked today's card and I hope you're going to play along with us this week! As always, if you have any questions, please be sure to leave me a message and I'll get back to you.

Here's a list of the products used for today's card-
