Hello, I hope this post finds you well! I fell in love with the colors over at The Color Throwdown and have two cards to share with you today.

I have had this adorable snowglobe die from Lawn Fawn for a long time and this is the first I have used it.  Oh my goodness is it fun to put together!  Why did I wait so long? I will be making more that is for sure, so you have been forwarned.  I added the bow from Paper Smooches and his face is the cream color as well.  Had to make sure I got all the colors in. The sentiment is from SU and the background stencil is from MFT.  The majority of my Christmas cards I am making this year will all have the MFT stencil somewhere on them. I made 42 backgrounds altogether using white ink about two months ago and have been whittling the stack down ever since.  So fun and quick with a great empact!

Here is a close up so you can see the glittery snow. 

Below is my second card! I am linking this up over at CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Over there they want us to use Non-traditional Christmas Colors. The scalloped circle is Spellbinders, the poinsettia is from Impression Obsession and the fern-leaves are SU. The Merry die cut is also SU.

Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it. Nanc’

Shaking it up at JUGS!

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 12.52.06 PMHello Friends,  We are really shaking things up over at Just Us Girls this week.  Not only are we making Shaker cards but we are also adding two new Design team members to our already awesome team.  I am tickled pink about both of them!!  I have been a huge fan of both of these ladies for a long time now and I consider both of them very dear crafting friends. I have never met either of them, but hope to rectify that some day.  I know you all have some of those types of friends too.  Crafty peeps are the best peeps if you ask me! The ladies we are becoming our Judy Woodland of  Judy’s Happy Place  and Bobby Hagen, of Bits & Pieces.  Welcome to JUGS ladies and I am once again thrilled to have you joining us!  We also still have our Guest Designer Steph Castro with us this month too.  So you gotta head on over to JUGS and check out all the exciting news and see all of the fabulous shaker cards too!

My shaker card doesn’t really need any explanation. All products are Stampin Up and my shaker was made with a plastic bag as I have no more acetate.

Have a wonderful day!  Nanc’

Screen Shot 2015-03-14 at 10.42.03 AMHi Friends, Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend week and Sue has challenged us, and you for that matter, to make a Shaker card.  I will admit, I think this is the second time I have ever attempted one of these types of cards, I am not sure why they intimidate me so much, because they are not that hard and so much fun to make!  I am also linking my card up to two other challenges.  The Pink Elephant; where they are asking us to use Pastel Colors, and my starting off point was a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Now head on over to Just Us Girls and play along!  While your there check out what the Design Team has done along with our Guest Designer Kathy.  Remember, if you are chosen as our Chic of the week you could be in the running as a possible GD in the future. Hope to see you there!

Few card details:  Flower stamp is from SU.  The sentiment is from Verve. I used a combo of Washi tape and ribbon underneath the sentiment. The EF is also SU. Inside the shaker I have a mixture of sequins and punched paper flowers in various colors.  Any other questions please just let me know.

I appreciate so much you coming by!  Have a great day! Nanc’

Over at Just Us Girls this week Lisa is shakin’ things up!

Have you ever made a Shaker Card?  I have NOT!

I so enjoyed this challenge and as I told Lisa and the girls earlier,

my first shaker crashed and burned!  I had the bright idea to use

saw dust instead of sand because I didn’t have enough time to

go get any ( yes I know, I live in Florida and didn’t use sand). LOL

 The saw dust looked just like fine sand…really!   Anyhoo, The sawdust was so fine and

I didn’t leave enough of a gap between the shaker and the image so my cute little penguin

was camouflaged….you couldn’t even see her.  I tried again and followed the

directions from This Tutorial to a tee…and used glitter instead and it worked like a charm!

FYI…….sawdust doesn’t work for sand!

I love the way this card came together….perseverance is the Key!

The waves were made with my Creative Memories cutting system and

the sun I just eyeballed with a small paper cutter and a little Tim Holtz distress ink!

Coloring was done with colored pencil.

Add a little torn paper for some sand and there you have it!

I am also adding this card to the Case Study Challenge this week.

This fabulous photo is what helped me get the idea for my sun!
