Nutcracker Magic

Are you ready?  It's right around the corner you know.  Christmas is coming whether we are ready or not.  I hope you're enjoying the season and that you are creating wonderful memories with those you love.

Our December Guest Designer,Kathleen, is back with us this week to share a wonderful Christmas creation.  She used Nutcrackers for this fun card!  Doesn't this make you want to go listen to The Nutcracker Suite?

I just love the touch of the sparkle tape and the buttons.  She really brought home the red and green Christmas colors too!

When I asked Kathleen about her technique and style (which I absolutely love!) she said:

I am not sure what technique I use. Maybe you can tell me! I'm kinda self taught.  I really just make my cards and don't think to much about it.  I need to spend more time learning different techniques. 

About 15 months ago I suffered a severe detached retina.  Since then I have had drops, injections and 2 more surgeries to correct complications from that.  That leaves me with one eye to use, and often my cards are a little off kilter, which as a perfectionist drives me crazy!

I love challenges as they give me a reason, and often a sketch to use, to make cards.  I found that before I stumbled on the challenges I didn't make many cards.  Now often I leave them blank so that I can adapt them to whatever occasion I have.

You can find more of Kathleen's creations by visiting her Splitcoast Stampers Gallery.   Stop by and visit her - she would love for you to visit and leave her some love too!

Be sure to come back next week and see what wonderful project Kathleen has in store for's very peaceful.  (Hint-hint!)
