A Wreath, Snow, and some Flowers

In Alabama, they are breaking up the hunting season. You get to hunt for a few weeks, then you stop, then you start again - I think that happens 3 times. Hubby was gone all weekend and I am not a big Black Friday shopper so I got to play on the kitchen counter!

My favorite card I made was for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS. The site was Sur La Table and I cased THIS lovely wreath. I used my fav MFP stamp set - Create with Pine Boughs, plus a MS leaf and branch punch. I stole more stuff off of one of hubby's flower arrangements too (he told someone the other day that I use to do this but he has no clue that I still do - LOL!). I made the wood look bg by taking a piece of old SU! dp (it was green with red flowers - seriously) - and I ran it through the SU! wood ef, then drug my SU! chocolate chip stamp pad across it, then I took some MS White Metal Primer and dipped a paper towel in it and drug it down the paper in straight lines - I love how it came out and the paper totally changed!

Next, I played in the MIX challenge on SCS and the MIX concept was snowy scenes:

Lastly, I had the great honor of being the Featured Stamper on SCS this week and I cased one of my own cards. I didn't post it but I cased THIS card.


Hope you had a great weekend! I gained three lbs!!!!!

  3. Hi, Nancy! Your blog was my first stop this morning, and I must say, WOWOW! My eyes danced over your projects - and I ended up pinning each one. They are gorgeous! I admire the painstaking time you used in creating that magnificent wreath! My fumble fingers would not be happy at all with that project, but you made it so gorgeous - truly! All those lovely textures - and I want to steal those tiny berries, too! Good thing I'm not around, or I'd be stealing plenty from your hubby's arrangements! Love what you did with the printed SU paper.

    Nancy, how did you create that fabulous white texture in the pine branches? I love the image, and the white looks like icy snow! Beautifully done! Your red flowers are also pretty (I ended up pinning your green card as well LOL) Thanks for a great morning of inspiration, Miss Nancy! hugs, de

  12. Awww look at that wreath-wow Nancy that is so beautiful. Love the texture on that pine branch. It does look so much like snow. The Santa Sleigh and Reindeer is so sweet. That scene is darling. The flower card is a bright spot on an otherwise frosty cold winter day. May the lord bless you and keep you. Miss you and sending my love.
