Blue Sugar Nellie

Hope you have all had a lovely morning and the weather isn't too bad for you. There is no snow here yet, got it to the north, west and east of us but I think those lovely Pennine hills are protecting us at the moment.  Lovely blue skies and sunshine here, still bloomin' freezing though.  Just the one card today.  It is the final challenge this week over at Bah Humbug.  We have been making a card a week since January and whoo hoo I didn't miss a single one.  It's mostly due to this challenge that I have got my Christmas cards done early this year.  I am usually still at it the week before.  The challenge on All Things Sugar Nellie this week is to make a Stepper card so I have combined the 2 challenges to make this card.



Sugar Nellie stamp coloured with Promarkers.  SeeD sentiment inked with Promarker. MS Snowflake punch.

The instructions for the fancy fold step card can be found here.  I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - 3 Snowflakes, 2 Circles and Lace
One Stop Craft Challenge - Christmas Cuties 
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Challenge - Use a Die Cut ( I used nestie circles )
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes with a touch of sparkle
Fussy and Fancy Friday - No Red or Green Christmas
Wild Orchid Challenge - Blue Christmas

Hi Debs - hasn't it been fun this year? Like you I'm normally panicking round about now 'cos I haven't got enough hand crafted cards to go around my family and friends and end up scouring the shops for cheap boxes of cards to send. Not this year though =)
Your final card is another cracker - love that stepper card design so will be checking out the tutorial ... thanks for the link.
You have coloured this cute stamp perfectly and I really love the glittery snowflakes. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug! and being so supportive of our challenges all year. You're a star!

Luv'n'Stuff

What a fabulous stepper card Debs.
I love the icy blues against the darker background, it looks so elegant, and your cuttling is first class. Love your little snowperson. A fabulous card with lots of sparkle and texture.

I love seeing what you do with Mary Hall images - & snowmen. This is a lovely example & you've made me very curious about these Christmas themed Challenges - I'd seen the name but not realised the significance.
I love your snowflakes with this one & the blue theme is brilliantly icy.

Hello from Texas!
What a sweet card!
Have not tried the Promarkers--I use mostly Letraset Trias. They look good though!
