Here is the second card.

 

Card Info: MFT stenciled background. The silver ornaments are from SU. The bow is Paper Smooches. The leaves are Verve The greeting is Verve. The flower is SU.

There you have it! Two very simple cards!

Hello, I hope this post finds you well! I fell in love with the colors over at The Color Throwdown and have two cards to share with you today.

I have had this adorable snowglobe die from Lawn Fawn for a long time and this is the first I have used it.  Oh my goodness is it fun to put together!  Why did I wait so long? I will be making more that is for sure, so you have been forwarned.  I added the bow from Paper Smooches and his face is the cream color as well.  Had to make sure I got all the colors in. The sentiment is from SU and the background stencil is from MFT.  The majority of my Christmas cards I am making this year will all have the MFT stencil somewhere on them. I made 42 backgrounds altogether using white ink about two months ago and have been whittling the stack down ever since.  So fun and quick with a great empact!

Here is a close up so you can see the glittery snow. 

Below is my second card! I am linking this up over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Over there they want us to use Non-traditional Christmas Colors. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders, the poinsettia is from Impression Obsession and the fern-leaves are SU. The Merry die cut is also SU.

Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it. Nanc’

Seagulls Greetings

Hello, Over at Time Out Challenges the word they have for their challenge is Quick.  Today’s card is just that! I was mass-producing these cute Seagull Christmas cards yesterday and each one takes me about ten minutes to do. It’s a card I have made before and the only addition was to give the cute penguin a Santa hat.  I made the punny greeting on my computer. 

I will also be linking this up over at The Paper Players for my second entry as the window to their CAS Holiday hasn’t ended yet! 

Card Details: MFT- Penguin, and water stencil.  Oxide Inks. The Santa Hat is from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks so much and have a wonderful day! Nanc’

CAS Christmas in Florida

Hello, I hope this post finds you well and staying safe and healthy. I have been in CAS Christmas card mass-producing mode and when I saw the challenge over at The Paper Players I knew they would be just perfect for their challenge this week. I wish these cards were for me to giveaway but sadly no…this batch is for both stores. Maybe I will get around to making a set for myself too. I so enjoyed making these and love the way they came out! 

The Stamp set is from Art Impressions and I used Oxide inks for the backgrounds and Copics and Prisma Colored Pencils. The Merry Christmas greeting is from SU. Love the font on that one! 

Thanks so much for your visits I truly really appreciate each and every comment you leave! This is a super busy time for me so I apologize for not reciprocating! 

Take care, Nanc’

Noel, Peace, and Deck the Halls

Hello friends, Now that ETA is behind us and thankfully with minimal damage, although we did also have 9 inches of rain, and my dad is doing better with his infection, I had a chance to play along with the Colors over at The Paper Players. I sure have missed playing along with them. I thought retirement was supposed to come with all kinds of free time. LOL The colors that they have are perfect for getting more Christmas cards completed, so I decided to make two. 

Card Details: The musical background, the bell die-cuts, and the leaves are from Stampin Up. The bows on the bells are from Paper Smooches. The Sentiments are all Stampin Up. The tag die is MFT. I also used some white paint splatters too which really made the cards come to life. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you and your family are staying safe.  Somehow we will get through this, we just have to keep doing our part! Hugs, Nanc’

Christmas Kickstart

Hello,  I found a new challenge site to play along with. It’s called Christmas Kickstart Challenge.  It’s hard to think about Christmas cards in February but it’s good to start sometime. It’s exceptionally hard when the temps are supposed to reach 83 today.  I like warm, but seriously!  This card may seem familiar, as I posted a card very similar to this one a few months back.

Card details: Poinsettias are from Memory Box, the white floral cover plate was from a friend, and the sentiment is Verve.

Hope you have a creative day, Nanc’

Snowflake

Hello,  Happy New Year to you!!! I am back after a much needed and thoroughly enjoyed break!  It was so wonderful to have the time away from blogging, and while I was at it, I cut way back from my phone use too!  Sometimes I feel technology is killing society, but that is a subject I don’t think you stopped by to discuss. As much as I adore my phone, It is one that troubles me so much. Anyhoozal…

Today over at Just Us Girls we have our first challenge starting for the New Year. Since the word is Snowflakes, I had to post a final Christmas card of the season.  This card was made with an MFT die set (Joy-Filled)and a snowflake die set from poppy (Evangeline Snowflakes).   I have posted a card similar to this one in the past. The (mysterious brand) designer paper really makes this card shine!

We also have a NEW designer starting with us over at JUGS!  I know you will recognize her right away!  We are so lucky she said yes and will be joining our team!! It’s Cecile Ribon! Welcome CECILE!!! I was thrilled when Vicki told us the good news!  I hope you love it here as much as the rest of us do!

Finally, we have two guests joining us this month-Mary Deatherage and Hannelie Bester.  Hannelie is sitting the first week out as she is still on holiday, but Mary is with us this week! Welcome Ladies!!

Before I go, I would like to share with you a picture that my hubby took while I was writing this post! My grand kitty Lando likes to chase the computer mouse. Please focus all of your attention on the cute British Short Hair and not the old lady in her Pajamas with the crow’s feet on her face.   Happy Stamping, Nanc’

More Christmas ….Merry Merry!

I am back again as promised, with another Christmas card.  I had a lot of fun throwing this card together.  Some of my crafting friends over the years have sent me some cover plate dies and it’s always fun getting them back out to see what else I can do with them.  I do not know who makes this one, but I do know the Poinsettias are from Memory Box and the sentiment is Verve. This card really sparkles in real life as it has a coat of Wink of Stella on the florals. Don’t you just love Kraft on a Christmas card?  I certainly do!

I am going to enter my card over at Time Out Challenges where the words are Merry and Cheerful and again over at The Flower Challenge where the challenge is to use a Die.

Have a creative day,  Nanc’

The Flower Challenge-Use a Die

 

Hello…Long-time no see! I thought I would pop in today and share a card that I made for the recent Flower Challenge. The challenge this month is to use Die-cuts.  It can’t get much more easier than that.  In fact, I will be sharing another card in a few days. I have a LARGE variety of companies on this card, so if you have any questions…just let me know.  The sentiment is heat embossed and I used the smooshing technique and watercolor paper for my poinsettias.

Hope you have a great week!  Hugs, Nanc’

Winter Pic @JUGS

Hello, We have a perfect photo this week at Just Us Girls that is surely going to help you get those Christmas cards done. My card is very simple and didn’t come out quite as I had planned….but that’s okay. I had intentions of only lightly covering my tree with white embossing powder and I ended up covering the entire thing.  We can’t love them all, can we? Plus, I had no time for a redo.

The stamps are a mix of a wooden block-tree, a small snowflake from Gina K and the sentiment is SU.  I used Oxide ink for my background.

Please come on over to JUGS and join us and I can assure the other ladies did a much better job than I.
