Merry Christmas

Hello, Today I am super excited to be a part of a group of designers sharing a new collection from Spellbinders called Tinsel Time Collection. Thanks to Yana Smakula for reaching out and asking me to join in the fun, I certainly appreciate it and didn’t quite believe it at first! I actually asked her if it was Spam email! LOL

For this card, I have chosen to showcase the Dancin’ Dear. Isn’t she just darling? Her legs wobble back and forth when you tilt the card. The entire collection is just as cute as can be and it certainly has put me in the Christmas mood despite these temperatures.

When I was nearly done with my card, I thought the reindeer needed a matching hat for her scarf, so luckily the Santa hat from the Dancin’ St. Nick set did the trick. I will be sharing him with you very, very soon! The Merry Christmas die is also part of this collection as well and is called Tinsel Time Sentiments. The two snowflake dies are found in the Festive Noel Etched Dies set, also from Spellbinders. I have affiliate links for you below!

A Few Card Details: I sponged some cream cardstock in Vintage Photo Oxide ink till I found the perfect tone of brown I wanted for my reindeer. I stenciled my background using a snowflake stencil from Miss Ink Stamps in Kitsch Flamingo and then took some Nuvo Glimmer paste to get my shimmer. After I cut the rest of the pieces out from various cardstock and or DSP, it was time for assembly. I finished off the brim of the hat and pom-pom with clear Nuvo drops and glitter. I used dimensionals to achieve the height I needed for her legs to wobble.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my news and some fun new products with you! I hope you have a wonderful day, Nanc’
