Pink & Brown Holiday

Hi Everyone! I've been suffering from some wrist/carpal tunnel issues that are keeping me from crafting, but I thought I'd hop on and share another holiday card I made, but hadn't shared with you yet. This one uses the Candyland Christmas set from The Cat's Pajamas. Oh, and by the way, they have a sweet little 25% off everything sale that ends today, so if you haven't already stocked up on swanky stamps, head on over!

I started by cutting a Classic Cream and Espresso Roast shape with my Labels 1 Nestabilities. I then stamped the image from Candyland Christmas and colored with Copics, using the Nestability as a stencil to sponge around the edges with brown ink. The DP is from the Nana's Nursery DCWV pack and the ribbon is from American Crafts.

  2. I love this color combo! I also have wrist/carpal tunnel and sometimes elbow issues and have to take crafting breaks. Of course, it always flairs up when I am most motivated to craft! I hope you feel better soon.

    Hope the wrist is better soon. I'd hate to have to miss all your great art!

    Happy New Year.

  9. Well done, well done! (clapping in the background) I love the border when you colour the Nesty's while the paper is still inside of it!

    This is gorgeous! I love how you used the nestie to create another "layer" ... adds some nice depth! Always love your work...and wishing you some relief from carpel tunnel. You may want to try some physical therapy...helped me...and some anti-inflammatory meds. Happy New Year!

  16. Very pretty.

    I hope you get to feeling better, because I know that really hurts.

    Have a beautiful New Year and thank you for all the inspiration you've given this past one.

  17. Cute card in pretty colors. Hope your wrist improves. A wrist/hand brace (from Wal-Mart) I used when I was on the computer cleared mine up.

  18. OUCH! I feel your pain. Quite literally. I picked up a water bottle the other day to put on the dispenser and I picked it up JUST THE WRONG WAY and something in my wrist went "pop" and my CT said "GOOD MORNING!" and has been bugging me ever since. SIGH.

    Glad you have a stash of goodies there to keep us addicts at bay!
