CAS Christmas Card!

I have been eyeing the challenge over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and finally found a bit of time to put something together.  When I was visiting my sweet friend Linda in Seattle this past summer, she let me stamp a few of these fabulous Santas to bring home with me. Isn’t that stamp just awesome?  I so love a traditional Santa.  I don’t know about you, but when I go to a mall at Christmas time (which mind you isn’t very often these days-with online shopping), I purposely have to walk by the Santa display, to see if the Santa they have greeting the children looks authentic enough. Luckily this past week, when I was at a mall in Sarasota, I spotted Santa himself!! He was the real deal I tell you! So between the stamp and seeing the jolly man himself, I was very inspired! In fact, I made three more cards using this fabulous stamp, that hopefully I will have time to share later. Not sure who makes this stamp, but the sentiment is an old one that I adore from Verve. The snowflake is a die from Poppystamps. The square die that I used for a belt is from Spellbinders.

On a side note, my father has been recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer and is having a Masectomy tomorrow, so this post was a nice distraction. Hug your loved ones, Nanc’

Clean and Simple @ STB

STB ToppingsHello Friends, Hope you are having a good week so far.  It’s Thursday and it’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  This time around our topping is Clean and Simple, which is something I plan to tackle more of this year.  I want to take some of the pressure off myself and stop thinking each card has to be better then the one previously posted.  Please tell me you put those types of pressures on yourself too?  I sure hope someone out there does this and I am not alone on this crazy thought process.  Anyhooze…..Today’s card was inspired by this card I found over on Pinterest.  I have linked it up for you HERE! It was done by the talented Kristina Werner. Everything she does is like jaw dropping gorgeous.

DSC_0478My card has quite a few flaws but it sure was fun to do.  The hardest part was finding all the small stamps from various stamp sets.  Then when I went to get started, I knew I wanted to do a heart, but didn’t have any heart dies. ( I think that needs to be rectified pronto!)  So I turned on my cameo and made myself a heart negative mask, which was super quick and worked perfectly.  The sentiment and sequins are from Verve.

I sure hope if you are stamping sometime over the next few weeks you will consider making a CAS card and join us at STB!

Take care,  Nanc’

Clean and Simple Stamping

IMG_0001

FTL246Just a quick hello today so I can link up this card that I made for Clean and Simple Stamping.

I have so many wonderful challenge sites that I like to play along with and

this one is no exception…it’s just been toooo long! 😦

As soon as I saw this unique sketch I knew I didn’t want to miss it!

I combined 3 different stamps, raised one of my flowers and distressed the edges

to complete this quick and easy card.

The ink is Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder from Stampin Up.

Thanks for stoppin’ in,

Nanc’
