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
Here are the chippies I used:

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
till next time
