B is for Books

The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge 126 is "B is for Books."  I have been following their challenge blog for awhile but this is the first time I decided to play along.  I used the Clup Scrap Ivy League kit to create my card.

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for #SOSS B is for books.  Club Scrap Ivy League.

I think this would be a great graduation card for someone!  You can join the challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers by clicking on the photo below.

Cards in Envy Santa Baby

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  Create a card that uses anything that makes you think of Santa.  Could be Santa's hat, belt, sleigh or Santa himself!  I decided to make a card with Santa.

This vintage Stampin'Up Santa worked well with the Tim Holtz Sizzix retro Merry Christmas die.  There's just a touch of bling on the Christmas tree and a rinestone on the i in Christmas!  Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog to see what the other design team members did and then link up your Santa cards!

Cards in Envy Fire or Rain

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy Blog.  We are looking for cards that show either Fire or Rain.  I loved this sentiment from the Club Scrap Firecracker Stamp Set.  I dug into another old Club Scrap Kit, Fire and Ice (retired) for some paper and ribbon for the card.

Cards in Envy Favorite Holiday

Time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  Create a card featuring ANY Holiday that's one of your favorites.  My favorite Holiday will always be Christmas!  This is similar to a card I made for the Denver Scrapbook Expo card swap we just had. 

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy Challenge, Christmas Card Stampin Up
I had planned on making a bunch of these cards but I ran out of this ribbon (acquired in the bargain bin after Christmas).  Of course I couldn't find any more of this ribbon and had to change up my Scrapbook Expo swap cards with different ribbon as I had to make 21 cards all the same!  This got me off my rear end to start making Christmas Cards.  
Hop on over to the Cards in Envy blog and share your favorite holiday cards (any holiday) with us.

Happy Crafting!

Cards in Envy Feels Like Fall

Whoo Hoo!  Fall is here - now let's hope the cool weather shows up too.  Over on the Cards in Envy blog we are looking for your Fall Cards.  I had fun making some fall leaves to add to my fall card. 

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy Fall Challenge, Close To My Heart Pathfinding Card kit.

I used the Close to My Heart Pathfinding Card Kit to stamp the wood background and the sentiment.  I made the leaves using my Cricut and Art Philosophy cartridge for the leaves.  Head on over to the Cards in Envy blog to see the rest of the Design Teams cards.  Then link up your Fall cards for a chance at some bragging rights.
