CAS Christmas

Hello Friends, I have another Christmas card to share with you today and it’s for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge.  The word they have for us this month is Poinsettia. I have this intricate poinsettia stamp from Verve that I just love and thought it might do the trick. I heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. I decided to pair it up with this bold Alcohol ink paper that I made a few weeks ago. Besides being bow challenged it came out alright. I am going to put my Christmas greeting on the inside. The one inch stitched square die is from SU. The outer rectangle is from MFT.

I am also linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s time for Clean and Simple.

Here is another one I made in a different color. 

Thanks for stopping in! Nanc’

Ho Ho Ho

I am trying to get caught up on my goal of having 24 Christmas cards done by now this summer ( this is number 7) LOL, and I thought the sketch over at CASE this Sketchlooked kinda fun this week, so I played along. I might have taking the sketch a bit too far, but I felt after I placed my circles it was just a bit to plain.  I so struggle with CAS cards and don’t know when to say when.

The penguin stamp is a wooden block stamp that I have had for eons, this week I am trying to give some of my older stamps some much deserved attention.

Some card details: Colored with Copics and Prismas, scalloped circles are Spellbinders, the Sentiment is SU, the Ric Rac looking border and scalloped rect. is from MFT.

Hope you have a fabulous day! Nanc’

Masculine Christmas

IMG_0170

June 2018I had sometime today to do some coloring and decided I better get on the stick when it comes to Christmas cards.  I am way behind what I did last year. I made 4 cards every month and I was nearly done by November. However, I am not going to dwell on that. I’m going to celebrate that this is number 4! I knew the CAS Christmas Card Challenge was nearly coming to and end and the word is Masculine and I thought this cute little Palm Tree might do the trick.

The stamps are from Art Impressions and the set is called Tropical Christmas. The scalloped rectangles are from MFT. I started coloring it with Copics and ended up doing all my shading with Prisma Colored pencils.  I hope you had a wonderful day and had sometime to be creative! Nanc’

BOLD!

Hello Everyone,  Today over at Just Us Girls our Word is BOLD!  The card I have for you today is a card I made for Christmas last year that I loved, but never posted.  I thought the bold poinsettia would work perfectly! The die is from Heartfelt creations, the EF is ???  and the sentiment is from Verve. Some gold stickles and I was done. Very quick card!  I also curled the petals and leaves to give it more of a realistic vibe.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and help me welcome our newest Guest Designer Karren from Stamping Stuff.  Karren is such a terrific card maker that I have been admiring for years and I am certain you will recognize her blog as soon as you get there.  Karen we are so very happy to have you with us this month!

One More Christmas Card..

Hello Friends,  Here is one more Christmas card to wrap up 2017!  It’s just a couple of days till Christmas and I am nearly ready! Have a few gifts to wrap and a bit more cooking and I will be done. This Christmas is going to be low key and we are going to focus on Family and Friends, which is the most important of all. Tyler and Sandra will be hopefully getting in on Christmas Eve if weather and flights don’t interrupt their plans. They have to split their time between families, so I have to be patient and see them when I can. So Christmas morning they will not be with us, and hubby and I might just have to head to the beach or something, so we aren’t sad.  We shall see. This is all new to me, so I have to learn to adjust. Anyhoo, that is enough of me rambling.

This card came together really quickly! Emboss resist with this terrific tree stamp that I have had forever and some sparkly SU paper and some pearls. The sentiment is from Verve I think…but I can’t swear to it!

I am linking my card up over at Muse Christmas Visions!

I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas however you choose to spend it!  Thanks so very much for all your support and kindness this year, it’s totally appreciated more than you know!  Can’t wait to see how this terrific hobby evolves in 2018!  The people I have met, and the friendships that have come from it, makes it so rewarding!  The best part of Christmas is all the handmade cards that adorn my home!  I love them the best of ALL!!!!

Hugs, Nanc’

One Card-Two Challenges!

Hello Friends,  I have one more day of School and then Hello Christmas Break!  I can’t wait! Today’s card is one that I really enjoyed putting together! I started off with this Fabulous stamp from Stampin Up.   I borrowed this gorgeous stamp from a dear friend of mine, but sadly it’s no longer available.  It heat embosses so beautifully, especially with my WOW glittery embossing powder.  I decided I wanted to make this card for a dear friend of mine who loves purple, so that is where my inspiration went. I just love the snowflake punch from MS and those Scalloped Die cuts from MFT!

I am linking my card up over at Merry Monday, where they have a Tic Tac Board and I have chosen the middle row- Stamping, Patterned Paper and Emboss.

I am also linking up to the Muse Christmas Visions where it’s Any Holiday Card.

I hope you are having a terrific week and are enjoying opening up all your Christmas cards as much as I am!  I need no gifts… as these fabulous handmade cards are gifts alone!

Hugs, Nanc’

Another Holiday Card

 

Hello Friends,  I have another holiday card to share with you today that goes along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I selected the center row which is, Holiday, Die-cut and Metallic.  I have embossed this great tree stamp from Stampendous with some of my fabulous Glittery Embossing Powder from WOW, I just love this stuff. The snowflakes are a punch from MS.  The scalloped die is from MFT. The glittery paper is from SU.  This card looks so much better IRL.

Have a fabulous day, it’s time to get back to baking! Nanc’

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge

Hi Friends,  I have another Christmas card for you today. I have had this poinsettia from Heartfelt Creations laying on my desk all glittered up for weeks and I finally got around to putting it to some use. Here are a few details; The sentiment and the leaves are from Verve. I also had some left over gold paper from the wedding, that I thought would look lovely on a Christmas card. The tag paper is from who knows where. The sentiment is heat embossed in gold along with some fun gold Nuvo drops for accents.

I am linking my card up to Stamp Ink Paper where they have a fabulous color challenge going on!

Hope you are having a truly wonderful day! Nanc’

I wish you could see how sparkly my poinsettia is, but sadly it didn’t photograph well.

Reindeer Games…

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a good start to the week! I wanted to share with you the card I made for the Fusion Card Challenge Inspiration Photo.  I just love the color combo of Kraft and Red together, so I knew right away I wanted to play along. I had intended to follow the sketch as well, but somehow I lost focus and added too many additional layers. Please tell me you do that too? I just adore this little Rudolph stamp that I colored with Copics. Then I decided I would frame him in and have him playing in a snow bank.  I thought my strips of added paper did a good job with the gingham you see all over the photo. Some sparkly snowflakes, Nuvo drops, and a Verve sentiment and I was all done.

Thanks for checkin’ on me and have a wonderful day!

I am back to the studio, as I need about a dozen more cards! Nanc’
