Club Scrap Navigation Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Navigation Blog Hop.  If you came here from Debby Hernandez's blog you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning of the blog hop go HERE to the Club Scrap blog to start.

I get my Club Scrap Digital Kit at the beginning of the month.

This is a great travel kit and very "ocean or seaside" looking so I created two pages of a short day trip I made to Tybee Island Georgia while I was attending a conference in Savannah.

I used the Quick Drop Digital Pages and my Panstoria Artisan 5 Software to create the pages.  With the Digital Member monthly subscription kit you get both Quick Drop pages, Photoshop Element Pages and all the digital paper and embellishments.

I waited patiently for my Club Stamp Kit to arrive.  It ships on the 20th of each month.  I also get the Art Nouveau Stamp, Greetings Stamp, Borders and Backgrounds Stamp and the Embellishment Kit shipped with the Club Stamp kit.  I decided I wanted to do the ACLM cards this month.  As I was stamping the gorgeous lantern image, I realized it would make a great sympathy card.  The sentiments I used are not from Club Scrap but the Bible verse is perfect for the Club Stamp image.

Cards in Envy Let it Snow Challenge

Time for another challenge at Cards in Envy challenge blog.  Show us your cards with snowmen, snowflakes, snowy scenes.  I opted for the snowy scene.

Crafty Colonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy blog, Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny, Stampin Up Sleigh Ride and Jingle all the Way, Winter Card

I used shimmer cardstock for the sky and snow.  The background was cut with Stampin'Up Sleigh Ride die.  The bunny is Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny.  The sentiment is from Stampin'Up Jingle All the Way.  
This is my last post before Christmas so I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
I'll be back on December 30th with the Club Scrap Navigation Blog hop.

Club Scrap Watercolor Christmas Bloghop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Watercolor Christmas blog hop.  If you arrived here from Josette's blog you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning of the bloghop go HERE.

For this hop I made a card using the Club Scrap Watercolor Christmas Stamps.  

CraftyColonel Donna Nuce for Club Scrap Watercolor Christmas Bloghop, Christmas Card
I'll admit I was a little challenged by the bird stamp but if you let it dry after you stamp (I stamped wet on wet paper) then you can go back and add details with a fine brush to give the bird form.  I used Sanketi's birds as examples to finish off mine.  I used Arches Aquarelle Cold Pressed 140 Lb 3.9" x 9.8" Watercolor Block to stamp the bird.  Watercolor Blocks are fabulous because you don't have to tape your paper down. Bird is stamped with Ranger Barn Door Distressed Ink (Distressed inks really are fabulous for watercolor) and details added with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor pens and a #2 Round Watercolor brush.   I used a white gel pen for the bird's eye.  I loaded my #2 brush with red and then gold ink and tapped it on my finger to get the sprinkles around the bird. 

The card is made with items from the Club Scrap Moroccan Spice Club Stamp kitEmbellishment Pack and Club Scrap Metallic Ink Gold.    The joy stamp I used is from the Club Scrap Lock & Key because it was small enough to fit on my tag.  

Now head on over to Anne Marie's blog.

Happy Crafting!
