Home Sweet Quilt

Hello, Today I am sharing a card with you that is part of the new Home Sweet Quilt Collection from Spellbinders. I have used pieces of the Filligree Eight Point Star Collection to make my card. This set was designed by the talented Becca Feeken. I have paired my card with another Spellbinders set, Noel, as I wanted to make a Christmas card. I really love how this came together, just like I envisioned.

Filligree Eight Point Star

Noel Etched Dies

A Few Card Details: First, I blended my background with 5 colors of Oxide Inks. Next, I decided to pull out my Snowflake EF by Cuttlebug and give the background a little interest, later to realize that I embossed the wrong side of the paper. UGH! I decided, to forge ahead as it didn’t look so bad de-embossed after all. Plus, it was easier to get all my dies to adhere to a flatter surface. Last, it was time to assemble all the dies. The small snowflakes in the center of my Eight Point star are from the NOEL set as well. I doubled the Noel letters in white to tie the card altogether. In the end, I really love the way this card turned out!

I will be linking my card up with Darnell over at NBUS as the Home Sweet Quilt Collection is brand new.

I will be back in a day or two with another card using this collection.

Update on my dad, he is hanging on and we don’t know why. It breaks my heart to see him suffering so. I adore him!

I hope you get to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’


Mini Slimline

Hello, Elizabeth is our fabulous hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she has picked the PERFECT Trend for us. Mini Slimline cards. I am finally starting to get on board with this size and really loving it. It is very common for me to be way behind on the latest trends and I am good with that. Someone has to be the caboose. LOL.

I am linking up over at Tic Tac Toe once again because I like this board so much and this time I chose the row Holiday, Silver, and Patterned Paper.

I love Happy Little Stampers so I am joining in the Christmas Challenge this time.

Card Details: NOEL is from Spellbinders. The snowman is a fav of mine from MFT. The decorative edge was made with my Fiskers Victorian blade paper cutter.

Now, Hop on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the Design Team and our guest Rachel have done! So many fabulous cards!

Take care, Nanc’
