Christmas Eve Sky!

Hello, I hope you have all your Christmas cards completed. I am nearly done!  I believe, I enjoy making Christmas cards the most out of any other type of cards!  What about you? What is your favorite card to make? When I am done, who knows, I may even get a jump start on next years, as I have a few other ideas I didn’t get around to.

Here is some info on the cards above. The clouds were made with a MFT stencil and Oxide Inks. The Santa stamp is from Kitchen Sink Stamps, and the leave stamps are SU-on the blue card and I believe Gina K on the purple one. The scalloped heart die and ribbons are from Verve as well.

I am linking these cards up over at Fusion– for that beautiful photo and Inkspirational– where it’s Anything Christmas.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Take care, Nanc’

Snowman Joy!

Hello Friends, Got another FUN Christmas card with my MFT Joy die set! You can’t help but smile when you see that cute little snowman staring back at you! I just love polka dots, and when I got this fun Washi tape out the other day I thought it would make a great accent to his cute little hat. I am linking this cute little guy up over at Muse Christmas Visions and again at Inkspirational.

I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for your sweet comments as of late, and your visits too! Hugs, Nanc’

Season’s Greetings!

You done with your Christmas cards yet?  Me either! I need about a dozen more, but I will get there, I always do!  Today’s card is a more simple version of one I posted a few weeks ago. You can find that post here. I am linking my card up at The Paper Players this time around where they have a theme of Christmas challenge starting and also over at Inkspirational where it’s Anything Goes Christmas.

The sentiment is from Verve, the wreath and sparkly red paper is SU, the banner die is MFT, and the bow is Paper Smooches.  I heat embossed the greeting and punched out the little holly berries with a hole punch.

Hope you have had or will have an awesome day! Nanc’

Believe!

Hello, I have a CAS card for you today that goes along with the Challenge over at Fusion. I was inspired by the fun sketch and the bold red pillow and the simplicity of the photo.  This cute little stamp set is from my local Stamping store. I couldn’t get the photo of the card to cooperate, so those little dots you see are sparkly silver paper. I used Colored pencil as my medium. The stitched rectangles and paper are from SU.

Hope you are having a great day and find sometime to be creative.  Nanc’

Merry Christmas with Bows!

Hello, I have a very quick post for you today! The above card is for Photo week at Just Us Girls and this card was easy and fun to put together.  Next time I will do a better of making my stamping more uniformed, but as I said it was a quick one.  I used the bow from the new to me SU set- Wishing You Well. The Christmas part of the sentiment was made with letter dies from MFT. The Merry diecut is cut out of sparkly silver and was a gift from a friend, so I don’t know whose it is. I love it though!

Thanks for looking and please come join us at JUGS! Nanc’

Tags at STB!

Hello,  This time over at Seize the Birthday the topping if you choose to use it, is TAGS. You can make a Tag to stand alone or you may incorporate a tag on a card and or project, like I have done above.  This card has a Halloween vibe to it and it was not my intention at all, so instead of starting over, I just ran with it. In case you have never seen these Leaves before ( LOL) they are from Stampin Up.  The Tag and Birthday greeting are both from a MFT. The background was made with Oxide inks and some black and white paint splatters.  Not the best photo of the card, but it’s already sent, so had to post it as is.

Please come by to Seize the Birthday and check out what my awesome teammates have done. Speaking of Teammates, I would like to say a heartfelt farewell to one of my DT members-Sandy. Sandy, you will be missed so very much.  I am thrilled to have designed alongside you these couple of years, and very grateful I had the opportunity to meet you in person too!  Please, stay in touch! Take care, Nanc’

Wedding Wishes!

Hello, I have a wedding card for you today that goes along with the Special Occasion theme at The Flower Challenge this month. This card is a CASE of this card Here, with a few changes.  Erum makes gorgeous cards and you can check out her blog here. For the background, I first took my SU diagonal stencil and Smoky Slate ink and made a soft background.  Then I got out a neon pink Prisma Colored pencil and a ruler and added some deep dark lines. I really love the look of this. The stamps are from Altenew’s Beautiful Day and the sentiment is from Stampin Up. I watercolored my main flower after I heat embossed it, and used soft colored pencil on the rest. To wrap things up, I did some distressing with the same Smoky Slate. I am pretty happy with the way this came out.   Thanks for coming by and checking on what I have been up to today.  Nanc’

CAS Christmas Card!

I have been eyeing the challenge over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and finally found a bit of time to put something together.  When I was visiting my sweet friend Linda in Seattle this past summer, she let me stamp a few of these fabulous Santas to bring home with me. Isn’t that stamp just awesome?  I so love a traditional Santa.  I don’t know about you, but when I go to a mall at Christmas time (which mind you isn’t very often these days-with online shopping), I purposely have to walk by the Santa display, to see if the Santa they have greeting the children looks authentic enough. Luckily this past week, when I was at a mall in Sarasota, I spotted Santa himself!! He was the real deal I tell you! So between the stamp and seeing the jolly man himself, I was very inspired! In fact, I made three more cards using this fabulous stamp, that hopefully I will have time to share later. Not sure who makes this stamp, but the sentiment is an old one that I adore from Verve. The snowflake is a die from Poppystamps. The square die that I used for a belt is from Spellbinders.

On a side note, my father has been recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer and is having a Masectomy tomorrow, so this post was a nice distraction. Hug your loved ones, Nanc’

Wreaths!

Hello,  Hope you’re having a great day!  I finally had a chance to join in the fun over at the Twofer Challenge. The word they have for us this month is Wreath. I just got a a new stamp set this week from Stampin Up called Wishing You Well, and I couldn’t wait to ink it up. I needed a Thank You card for a colleague at work and also wanted to get back to making some Christmas cards, so that is where my intentions began. The Christmas card sentiment die on sparkly red, SU, card stock is from a dear friend of mine. The tiny red berries were hole punched and placed by hand along with the sequins. The bow die is from Paper Smooches.  For the Thank You card, the fabulous bow and dainty flowers are also from the same SU set and the wonky rectangles are from MFT.  The sentiment is also a go to of mine from a different SU set as well. Some added sequins and I was done.

Below, I have both the cards photographed for you separately as I struggled with that when they were together.  Have a great day! Nanc’
