Christmas Palm Tree

Hello Friends, I am back today to share another fun fold slider card. I can’t get enough of these cards this year. I just adore this palm tree stamp and thought it would work spectacular for the slider part.

I am playing along with the TGIF Challenges where the inspiration is Christmas Trees. I don’t know about you I will take a warm palm tree Christmas over a snowy Christmas any day of the week. Don’t get me wrong I think snow is utterly gorgeous but only for a visit.

I purposely tried to color the starfish to have some texture.
I sponged the background ever so slightly and then Copic Colored.

Card Details: Front palm tree, greeting, starfish, and flip flops are all from the same stamp set from Art Impressions. The smaller palm trees are brand new to me and are from Lawn Fawn, I can’t wait to use them more. I also used…Copics, Oxide Inks, and a bit of colored pencil.

Thanks for checking in on me and I hope you have a wonderful day! I may be back in a day or two with a few more Christmas cards to share…time permitting. Nanc’

Color Hues #8

Hello crafting friends, This is my second post for today so if you scroll down you can see my Exciting News post below!!

Today over at Color Hues we have a new challenge starting. The colors that have been chosen by Hannelie and as you can see above they are Blue and Green. I thought this would make a great Christmas card combo or of course, any type of card will do. This card was inspired by this card here.

Card Details: The Bells, fern dies, and the greeting are all SU. The background stamp is from Stampabilities. I used white paint to splatter the background and the ferns as well. In hindsight, I should have put bows on the bells, but the card is long been mailed.

The design team and our talented guest Stef Perry did an amazing job. Please won’t you come by and check them out and play along?

Take care, Nanc’

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’

Happy Holidays

Back today with a Christmas card for The Paper Players Challenge. As you can see to the left, the theme is Christmas so that leaves it pretty wide open. I have all my shopping done, and I just need to start wrapping. How about you? Are you finished?   Of course, at the last minute, I usually think of something else I want to get someone. I mailed the remaining Christmas cards out yesterday and that is sooooo early for us. Boy did that feel good. Now that we are both retired, we needed to make the difficult decision to cut the Christmas list back.  Let me put this in perspective for you. This is Hubby’s 34 year of designing his own Christmas card. People talk about his card all the time. In years past we used the in-house courier system to deliver the cards from school to school. Since that is not an option anymore we had to cut the list back. People are going to be heartbroken but mailing them all would be rather expensive. So between the two of us this year…we will be mailing about 115. Dave mailed out 70 to friends and family and I mailed out 45 to cardmaking friends. I also made about 40 for both retail stores.  In the past, we would send out about 180.  So we shaved about 65 off the list this year. It was so hard but necessary. 

That was probably more info than you needed. LOL 

Card Details: MFT snowflake bulbs and Wonky rectangle die, the snowflakes are from Memory Box and the greeting is from Verve.  I used a little flicker of white paint on my Oxide Inked background. 

Hope you have found some time to be creative today, Nanc’

Here are a couple of photos of the inside too!  I just love this designer paper!

A Few Card Details: Cardstock-Stampin Up, Candy canes and Gingerbread men dies are Impression Obsession, The sentiment inside is MFT.

HERE is a link to yesterday’s card where I have a link to the slider part of this card.

Thanks for all your sweet comments on the last card, they mean a lot!! HUGS! Nanc’

Candy Cane Wishes-Slider

Hi, Today’s card was inspired by my good friend Carol. She and I share ideas and cards that we fall in love with over on Instagram and or Pinterest very often, and as soon as I saw the video she sent me I knew I wanted to make one. The video is in Spanish mind you but it is pretty easy to follow. Carol is a retired Spanish teacher so she had no trouble at all. LOL Let me just warn you that once you make one of these you will want to make more. I have made three so far with hopes to make more.

My card was made with The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe Board in mind.  I have selected the middle row of Red, Fancy Fold, and Twine. 

HERE you can see how to make this card. And below are a few photos of the inside and the side view of the sliding circle. Rest assure the Gingerbread men and houses are NOT black as they appear in the photo, Just a chocolate brown. Paper piecing the candy canes back together on the circle closer was a tad easier than some of the intricate parts of the Gingerbread men. LOL

A Few Card Details: Cardstock-Stampin Up, Candy canes and Gingerbread men dies are Impression Obsession, The sentiment inside is Stampin Up as well. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! Nanc’

CAS Happy Holidays

I have some ridiculously CAS cards for you today for our next challenge at Just Us Girls. They work perfectly with the inspiration photo but I am a little bit embarrassed to even share them with all of you, as any 2nd grader or above could have put these together. LOL

I guess my Mojo went on vacation a little early, as this is also our last challenge for the year as we are taking the month of December off. Thanks to Joyce for being with us as our guest! We so enjoyed having you along. 

Hope you will join us at Just Us Girls!  The team did a far better job than I.

Just Add S

Hello, I hope this post finds you doing well. Over at Just Add Ink, they are asking us to Just Add S to our card. Well, I think I have that pretty well covered. I have a Stencil, a Snow-globe, a Santa, Snowflakes, and Stripes for today’s Christmas card. 

Remember you were forwarned that you would see lots of MFT stenciled backgrounds and adorable snowglobes! I am a tad obsessed at the moment.

Some card details: MFT-Tag, Christmas Stencil , LawnFawn-Snowglobe , SU-Sentiment , Tiny Santa-Neat and Tangled.

I am trying to resist all the stamp sales that are going on today, but I am not doing a very good job. I have made 3 separate purchases so far! Shhhhhh! It’s our little secret. 

Take care, Nanc’
