Vintage Christmas

Posted by Lena Nunn at 9:10 AM 2 comments
Happy Halloween friends! I know this post does not look very halloween-ish but thats because Im in full Christmas card mode. I have to make a ton of them for a Christmas Boutique im selling at. I love vintage Christmas cards so I really wanted to make some vintage looking ones. I have a few cards from old family friends that I called Grandpa and grandma that are from the 30's . They Have music notes on them and old vintage santas . So adorable! I made this one using a piece of sheet music that I distressed with my Making Memories Distresser and some brown Close To Cocoa ink. The image of santa was also done the same way. I inked up my Baroque Motifs stamp and stamped it onto the Music also. The wreath has been in my collection for about 4 years. My friend Cassie gave me a bunch of them a long time ago saying " you'll figure out something to do with them". She was right . I love this card. The only thing it doesnt have is the vintage smell and I have no idea how you would acheive that.
I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of Anything Goes

A gun cabinet for my papa

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:00 AM 4 comments
Its a very important day! My dads birthday is today. I sat there wondering what to make for his card last night because all hes into is fishing and guns. Ive made him a gazillion fishing birthday cards ( ok hes not that old) so I wanted to switch it up. I decided on a gun cabinet card. This card was made using brown paper that I stamed with a wood grain stamp. I put the guns on the card base using some pop dots. I then made the "door" and put acetate in the middle to look like glass. It was then attatched to card using pop dots. I love the results of this card. In case your wondering about the pa , I call my dad Pa and my mom Ma. I am entering this card in the Simon Says "anything goes" challenge.

A little Brayering, a little cricut, a little stamps

Posted by Lena Nunn at 11:52 AM 0 comments
Happy Monday friends! Is there such a thing? I'm going to hope there is. I made this card on Saturday night in hopes that I could combine my new cricut with stamping. I LOVE it! I started this card by brayering Pacific Point onto white cardstock. The moon was a circle I had taped on there before brayering. I then stamped the trees from Lovely as a tree over it . The snow was made by tearing paper and then adding snow tec to it. Lastly I cut out the reindeer using the Cricut cartridge Wildlife and stamped the sentiment in Black ink. I know the brayering is kind of streaky but I like to think it looks like the northern lights. Right right?

Ive been Scammed :(

Posted by Lena Nunn at 10:11 AM 4 comments
      How can some people be so cruel?  I just don't get it . Let me explain. I just got a cricut and I'm looking for cartridges for cheap since I am on a really tight budget.  I went to Splitcoast Stampers forums. Well I found a lady on the buy/sell/trade forum who wanted to do some trading of some of my stamps for some cricut cartridges. I was so excited because I had a bunch in my trade pile that she wanted and she had a bunch of cricut carts I wanted. She even had paper pups which is at the top of my wish list. So we agreed to trade stamps for 3 carts and then I pay paled her $20.00 for the paper pups . Well come to find out she was a scammer. She got my box of stamps and money and never sent a thing. She deleted her blog even. Well I can't just go out and spend the money on cartridges so now Im out the stamps, and the $20 not to mention the money it cost to ship the stamps to her priority. How can people scam other stampers? Thats like against the rules of the stampin sisterhood or something!!! I guess she did it to a couple people on there. ggrrrr.
   Anyways I made this card last night for the SCS Sketch Challenge SC355. I recieved this adorable stamp from wish rak. . I paper pieced it with some paper I also got off Wish Rak!

Embossing with nesties

Posted by Lena Nunn at 12:03 PM 3 comments
I learned a new trick! Ok well most of you probably already know this because you actually read packaging but I had no idea I could just emboss with my nesties until yesterday. I was using the folder thingy mabiggy that comes with nesties as a shim when the embossing word caught my eye. So I had to try it. Easy Peasy embossing squeezy! You just lay down the rubber tan mat and paper and then nestie and run through. Voila! I used the lovely as a tree set to stamp inside my oval. These are just the tips of the trees and I added some snow tech to the bottom. Loovvveee the results of this card!

Stamps and Cricut

Posted by Lena Nunn at 8:58 AM 3 comments
Happy Monday friends! Its pouring rain here and today is Columbus day so the banks and post office is closed. However I still have to work but its really dead today so Im posting this. I made this card the other day using my new stamps from Marks Finest Papers and my new cricut to do the Birthday Blessings. I love how it turned out even though I only used browns . The birthday blessings is from the George Cartridge and the nesting shapes behind the deer is from Accent Essentials.
