Thinking of you at Christmas

Hello, I have another snowglobe Christmas card for you today that is was of my favorites. I was looking at all the Christmas cards I created this year and do you know that it appears that pastels were my thing this year. I didn’t even realize that I opposed the traditional colors so strongly. LOL

I am entering this card over at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and have selected the right column; Sparkle Glitter, Stencil, and Snow along with The Paper Players where the theme is Christmas.

Here is a close up of my globe.

I have been using WordPress for 12 years and they are changing the formatting and I am trying to adapt before the New Year starts and they change it for me. So if my post looks a little off today that is why. I am not loving it and hope that my attitude changes as I fumble through it.

Card Details: MFT-stencil, Snowglobe-Lawnfawn, little Santa is Neat and Tangled, greeting is SU.

Thanks for stopping in and please take care, Nanc’

25 Dag of Christmas Tags

 

Hello, I have been really enjoying looking at all the tags for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags by the fabulous Tracey McNeely and her crew, and finally had some time today to join in the fun. It happens to be day 15 (better late than never) but my inspiration for my tags came from Day 6. My inspiration was from a few different tags from that day.  First, I like the look of the double tag from both Vicki and Shirley’s tags.  Next, I found a reindeer stamp as I thought Shirley’s was so adorable. Finally, I combined that idea with the word background of Sanna’s tag.

I had a happy accident when I was stamping.  I sponged all my backgrounds using Broken China for the sky. Then after I had stamped my first reindeer I accidentally smudged it with my fingers.  I decided to see what would happen if I continued to smudge the rest and I think they came out great. 

Details: Tags, scalloped die, and background stencil are MFT, the scalloped edge is a SU punch. The reindeer stamp is a block stamp from Recollections. The hills are made from a Lawn Fawn die. The bows are from Paper Smooches. The sentiment is Verve.  

If you haven’t checked out the 25 days of Christmas Tags I highly recommend it.  So much talent and inspiration.

Snowman Tag…

TCC #2

The ” Style” I am going for is a Shabby-Vintage type of feel for this tag.

Same as last time….oops!  That was completely accidental. LOL

The Card Concept is also pairing up with:

Tracey McNeely and her 25 days of Christmas Tags!

Tracey's Tag Badge

Tracey is as sweet as she is talented!!

For this challenge The Card Concept is looking for:

1.) A TAG or a CARD with a tag on it
2.) Snowmen, snow or any other “wintery” theme!

Now for my Tag Details:  The cute stamp set is from Gina K Designs and is called Snow One Like You.  The paper pack is from My Mind’s Eye. I paper pieced his hat and scarf and

took colored pencils to the snow and to the snowman to help with the aged look.  The light colored paper is a faint graph paper which I thought looked neat and is also under the sentiment and bordering the top too. I love using my Fiskars victorian border to edge my work…it seems to be a signature of mine.  Punches, candy dots and twine about wraps it up.  

I had a great time making this tag and it was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon and one of my days of from school!

If you have never played along with The Card Concept here are some of the details!  I love the creative idea behind this blog!

Choose one of the design team “Styles” to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary. Explain in your post which style you used. Link up your blog post.  Last but not least, comment on the card ahead of you and behind you in the linky. It’s really that simple! 

 Now, Please come on over and join us at The Card Concept…I would love it if you would!  You should see what the DT did this week!  While your at it go check out Tracey’s site too!  You’ll be glad you did…There are prizes involved!!
 Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving, I am hosting this year!  Nanc’
