Winter Wonderland reverse canvas-CE

Hi fellow crafters..
It's Nanné here to share an easy 5x7 reversed canvas I created using some of the fun Winter themed chippies from the Creative Embellishments store..
I started off by gessoing my canvas, then added some sprays (purple and light blue), which a few splatters of white paint..  I also found some Snow tex in my stash, but it had hardened.  I decided to use it anyway, by mixing it with white paint and that created the clusters of snow that I added to the bottom corner of my canvas..
I mixed some blue and red acrylic paint to create the purple that I pained my sleigh with, adding some micro beads for texture.
I mixed some clear gesso with light blue micro beads and added that to the bottom of my sleigh, along with some brown Prills and the papers I used are by Bo Bunny, the 6x6 Altitude collection..
I found some flowers to match my color scheme, lightly brushed them white paint..
The swirls I tucked in behind the flowers, is actually the love tree.. I looked at it and thought to myself that it reminded me of snow swirls, so I cut the tree in half vertically to get two pieces, which I then gessoed, painted them white and sprinkled them with white glitter.. they have a sweet snowly sparkle to them :)
and I finally felt like my canvas needed a saying and so painted the "Winter Wonderland" to go with my color scheme.
this really was a quick and easy project and you can create your own by grabbing a few of these great chipboard sets and dont' forget there is an amazing sale going on till December 25th..
Thank you for stopping by today
Till next time

Season's Greetings- CDD daily

Hi fellow stampers and a Merry Christmas to all :)
I'm here today to share two cards I created using heat embossing and white embossing powder.. It's a quick and simple way to get great designs on your card base..

Here are the cards I created:

I used the Fancy Frame dies to create the scalloped edges to my cards and then with a few fun winter themed stamp sets from the Craftin Desert Diva's store, I was able to create a quick Christmas card.

here are the stamps and dies I used to create my cards:

Together- CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers...
I'm here to share a layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments using some Websters Pages papers and chippies from the CE store..
I love rummaging through old photos of my kids as they are all adults now.. I miss them being so small and the little things we always did together :)
How about a few close ups:
I absolutely adore these fancy ornate leaves. I thought they had such a beautiful winter look to them.. added some heart cut outs, flowers and for my title " Together!"..
Some of the chippies I painted white and others just brushed a little white paint on them.
I added a cluster of flowers to the bottom of the heart frame and tucked in some chipboard ornate leaves and hearts.
The photo was taken on Christmas Eve a long time ago :)
thank you for stopping by today and checking out my layout..
hugs, Nanné

Christmas cheer-CE monthly challenge reveal

Hi fellow scrappers... 
It's the first of the month, which means its Monthly challenge reveal over at Creative Embellishments..
I decided to scrap these photos of my 12 yr old who likes to sleep under our Christmas tree every year :)

Here is the layout I created for our monthly challenge:
I used some of my favorite G45 papers and of course CE chippies..

how about a few close ups:
I love these ornaments.. 
I colored them using copic markers and then heat embossed them using UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel)

I cut the Berry Wreath frame into two pieces, so I could frame both photos :)  I colored it using Fiber Castell Big Brush markers and then used some red Stickles for the berries..

Thank you for stopping by today

Enchanting -CE daily

Hi Fellow scrappers.. I'm  here to share a winter themed layout I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments using some of the amazing winter themed chipboard elements from the CE store..  
The story behind these photo is that everyday when I pull up to your drive way to the house, there is a place for the deer to feed and they are always there waiting for me..LOL  They get scared and run off, stop and turn around to check me out as I am also checking them out and taking photos :) 


I had so much fun playing with some paints and then added some diamond dust to all of the white elements to give it some shine.. 


I just used a simple piece of white cardstock to create the background to my layout.. some modeling paste, stencil, stamps and paint sprays :)

I also added some of my favorite flowers to my layout, dry brushing them with white paint to soften the colors..
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my layout..
till next time

I decided not to color in my stamped images, since I was going for a black and white theme, with a hint of yellow..

Traditions- CE daily

Hi fellow scrappers.. It's Nanné here to share a layout I created using some of the fabulous fall themed chipboard elements in the Creative Embellishment store..
Us Finn's have a tradition every fall to go pick mushrooms from the woods and this year I had my phone with me and was lucky enough to get some photos of my mom on the hunt :)  Prized mushrooms are the Yellow Chantarelles, which by the way are delicious..
Here is my layout:
I absolutely adore these mushroom chippies.. I colored them with my Gelato's.. which are so easy to use, just rub the color on with your fingers.. 
How about some close ups and details:
For the mushrooms and leaves, I used several different tones of Yellow, brown, red and green..  
for the bottom corner, I clustered several mushrooms, leaves and flowers..
For the title, I used the Traditions sentiment.. I covered it with black gesso then rubbed some Gelatos over it, adding some highlights with white paint..  Papers are by Bo Bunny, the Enchanted harvest collection..
Thank you for stopping by today..
