You Made the Nice List

Hello, It is December 1st already, and time for the next Hues of Colors at Color Hues! For this challenge, we are leaving the linky open until December 29th as we know this time of year can get so hectic and I wanted to also give the DT less to do. Cindy is our fabulous hostess and she has picked the perfect color combo for us for December!

I am also going to link the Jolly man up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where the challenge is Any Occasion.

Card Details: The Santa die is from Spellbinders and I adore him. The DSP is very festive and has a lot of shades of green and red in it. I used chalk to color Santa’s cheeks and nose. The sentiment is from Neat and Tangled. Lots of dimensionals and glitter for his hat and eyebrows to finish him off.

Now pop on over to Color Hues and check out the fabulous cards by the DT and our wonderful guest that needs no introduction…Michele Ferguson!

Take care and happy crafting, Nanc’

Warm Christmas Wishes

Hello, I hope you are doing well! Today over at The Paper Players it’s Sketch Week and I absolutely adore the sketch that Anne Marie has chosen for us! I had the Santa and Palm Tree sitting on my desk already colored, and then an idea popped into my head. Why not mask off the base cardstock and make three beach scenes. So I did! I think it turned out quite well and I will definitely be making more of these in the future.

You know me and like to combine challenges, so I am also going to be playing along once again with the Global Design Project where their theme is Christmas and Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge-Make a Scene.

Card Details: Spellbinders Deckled Edge dies to make my stencils, Santa and the Palm Tree are from separate sets but are both Sunny Studios. I used both Copics and Prismas as my medium and Oxide ink for the background.

NOEL

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls it is our last challenge of the year and we also are having a DT opportunity too! If you think you might be interested, please visit the blog to get the details on the simple way to apply. As soon as I saw the wreath in the photo I decided that is where my inspiration would begin. This card didn’t quite turn out like I had planned, as the wreath looks a bit wonky but I had no time for a redo. I do love the polka-dotted letters though.

I am also going to link up with the Global Design Project where the Theme is Christmas.

Card Details: Spellbinders-NOEL was used for everything except the small base of the wreath which is from SU. I used my victorian blade on my Fiskers cutter to make the decorative edge.

Now, head on over to Just Us Girls and check out how the team and our guest Rachel were inspired! Speaking of Rachel…It was a pleasure having you with us this month and hope you will visit us again soon.

Take care, Nanc’

Hobbies and Pastimes

Hello, Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA friends! We are having a very small gathering at my house today and as I am typing this post there is the smell of pumpkin in the air. I love all things Pumpkin, do you? I know this Holiday can be so hard on so many, and the last two years have certainly not been easy. So if you are struggling today, I hope you know that others are thinking of you.

Today my son, daughter-in-law, and grand Kitty Lando are on the beginning leg of their cross-country journey from California to Florida once again, after they JUST arrived home from Puerto Rico very late the night before. I don’t know how they do it! They are headed here via electric car as they did last year. So although they won’t be with us today I know I will see them very soon! Now onto my card!

Today over at Seize the Birthday, Lindsey is our fabulous hostess and she has picked a great topping of (Hobbies and Pastimes) and I don’t recall we have ever used it before. Way to be creative, Linds! It was fun to see all the different directions the DT and guest Carol went with this topping. I chose boating as I needed a masculine card this week.

Card Details: All stamps are retired and from Stampin Up. I did a bit of distressing with some Oxide inks.

Take care and we hope you will play along over at Seize the Birthday and remember the topping is optional, any Birthday card will do! Nanc’

Silver and Gold

Hello, It is the middle of the month, and time for the next hues of color at Color Hues. Sweet Carol has chosen a color combo that might make you break out in song… it does me anyway! LOL Silver and Gold! As you know, mirrored paper is hard to photograph.

Card Details: This was a very quick and easy card. The Noel die is from Spellbinders the Music paper is actually vellum and cut out with my postal die from Hero Arts. Some ribbon and I was done.

You have to come by Color Hues and check out my fabulous DT’s cards and see how they sparkle and shine,

Take care, Nanc’

Cheers

Hello, It is time for Color Week at The Paper Players. Sweet Joanne is our hostess and she has a great color palette for us. I hope that the team doesn’t mind that I snuck a bit of cream into my design for my champagne.

Going to play along with Happy Little Stampers– Die Challenge once again!

Card Details: I love that I am using up some of my DSP that I seem to keep purchasing. As for the Champagne Glasses, they are from Paper Roses and the word Cheers is a new die-cut for me and from Karen Burniston. A fun and quick card to put together.

Mini Slimline

I am finally starting to get on board with this size and really loving it. It is very common for me to be way behind on the latest trends and I am good with that. Someone has to be the caboose. LOL.

I am linking up over at Tic Tac Toe once again because I like this board so much and this time I chose the row Holiday, Silver, and Patterned Paper.

I love Happy Little Stampers so I am joining in the Christmas Challenge this time.

Card Details: NOEL is from Spellbinders. The snowman is a fav of mine from MFT. The decorative edge was made with my Fiskers Victorian blade paper cutter.

#Celebrate

Hello, I hope all is well with you! It’s Thursday so you can probably figure out that it is time for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday. Julie is our hostess and she has a very fun topping for us this time around. What is your Beverage of choice? I guess it would depend on the time of day. Although, I am a huge coffee drinker and can drink it morning noon, and night. The staff at DD know me by name. LOL I thought it would be the perfect time to make another Gift Card Holder. I totally failed to take a photo of the inside of the card and it is long gone. So I will show you the die below so you get the idea.

I am going to add this card to the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge as well!

Card Details: Here is a photo of the die so you can see how it works. As you can see the cup itself is the cardholder and you decorate the sleeve. I have used some coffee cups from MFT to do just that. The hashtag greeting was gifted to me and is from Papertrey Ink. I stumbled upon the DSP in my stash and that was a happy find and helped me choose my color direction! The Chevron EF is from SU.

Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and you can see a huge variety of beverages! I hope you will be inspired to join us.

Take care, Nanc’

Christmas Florida Style

Hello, I have a card for you today that may just be my favorite card of the season, so far that is! It all transpired when I saw the natural wreath photo over at Inspired By. When I first sat down to make this card, I was headed in the fall direction but as it started to come together I thought why not include the Christmas photo and the sketch while I was at it too. So that is what I did. Then I was looking for something to decorate the wreath with and came across my shell dies and I was like…Score! It took about 5 or 6 leaf dies that are rather straight to form my wreath. I love that it is not perfectly tight! I also thought the Postal Die mimicked the top of the door! I should know what that is called since I am a huge Home Town fan, but the word escapes me at the moment. Love me some Erin and Ben!

I would also like to play along with two other challenges as well! You know I love the Happy Little Stampers monthly Anything Goes with Dies challenge, and then I am trying to support the new Christmas Card Challenge called Peace on Earth. They are up to their 3rd challenge already. They have an inspiration board to use if you want to but not required.

Card Details: The Wreath was made from six straight leaf dies from Sizzix-Spring Foliage. The postal die cut is from Hero Arts. The shell-dies are Impression Obsession. A few gold glitter sparkles in groups of three and some twine. The greeting is from Veve.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits always brighten my day! Take care, Nanc’
