Well the fun loving, oh so entertaining, Miss Darnell has reached another milestone with her followers, bringing her up to a whopping 600 now! Wow! So she's having her second NBUS challenge! If you live under a rock ( I sometimes do) and don't know who Darnell is, check out her blog HERE. She's just one of the funnest blogging friends I have!
The only rule you have to follow is to use your NBUS - never before used schtuff, which I have plenty of....
Darnell set a little side option you can follow if you want:
- Make two cards using the same stamp.
- Both of the above.
- None of the above.
I liked her side option. I chose to do #3, because I love making Christmas cards, and I thought it would be fun to do two cards with the same stamp/stamps.
So here's what I came up with!
I did my first card in pretty traditional Christmas colors.
And my second one in soft wintery colors. I've always love blues and browns together.
I followed a fun tutorial by Danielle Flanders found here to make the neat off the edge cuts. I wanted to do this for Make It Monday when it first came out, but didn't have the time. I thought it worked out so fun with the snowflakes!
For the NBUS part, I used Festive Flurry stamp set and matching dies from Stampin' Up. I've had these since last fall and never used them.
I won't go into how I created these cards, because you can just watch Danielle's video. I did exactly as she did just using the snowflakes instead of apples :)
Stamps: Festive Flurry- Stampin' Up, Snowflake Flurries- PTI, Happiest of Holidays - PTI
Dies: Festive Flurries- Stampin' Up
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great rest of the week!
