Peace in your hearts

   Hello!  Are you checking off all those to do lists?  7 days till Christmas.  Say it ain't so!  Every year it goes faster.  I have a couple of fun cards to share with you made for RRR.  First up this cute "farmhouse" style Christmas card.  I kept it simple letting my embossed frame and star take center stage.  I used a process using bleach and vinegar to rust my metal star.

Really Reasonable Blog Hoppin Time

 I can't believe I am saying this, but time for another RRR. blog hop folks!!!  I have not gotten to say that for awhile!!!  You should have found your way here from Kathy's blog.  If at any time you find yourself lost, just start back at the RRR blog link up above.  Here is this month's ribbon club assortment.  

 Here is my card!  A cute Wintery greeting with the cutest owls!

 I embossed my sentiment and my large snowflake for some added detail.

 I also added some white bead berry spray clusters to the center of my bow along with a snowball.

Here is my card finished.  I love this color combination.

Stocking Ornament

Hello crafty peeps! I am so excited to be designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon again!  Today I am sharing a fun ornament.  I used a gorgeous large chipboard piece from GSLC and embossed it.  I than covered it in plaid papers.  I used the snowflakes in red satin for it to hang from. 

 From there I created my center piece for the ornament.  A cute stocking  also from GSLC covered in pattern papers.  I added several ribbons including red seam binding, Bakers Twine in Cherry, and Plaid Ribbon in Christmas red and green.

I added some other goodies "inside" the stocking and added some handmade paper fringe and ric rac and that completed my stocking ornament.

Enjoy my friends!!!   Cherry

It's been awhile....

  • Hello  my friends!  It has been along while since I have posted.  I have had some health issues along with other social media things taking up my time.  I am in the process of creating a new blog which will be over at Wordpress.  I am back to being creative, both in my home and in my art work. Which feels wonderful!  I wanted to pop in and share a fun project.  If you have followed me through the years you know my heart lies with nostalgic retro images.

  •    This could be my favorite snowman ever!!!

     I used a gorgeous chipboard frame from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  Love the antique retro look.


This is available in my Etsy store 

             Will be back soon!!  I will be redirecting you to my new blog.  Happy Holidays, Cherry

Home is Where the Heart is by Cherry Nelson

       Happy Spring!  I have a fun 3d project to share with you all.  I lost half a Sunday assembling and creating this and it was so enjoyable.  Don't you love getting lost in art?

I started with the Standing Flip Book.  This kit comes with several chipboard pages but I used only one and decorated both sides of it.  So Depending on your mood you can switch out what side you want to see.

 I painted the whole flip book first with white acrylic paint.

 I than covered all my other chipboard pieces-windows-six panel, folding house shrine
 valentine heart shapes

 I added borders to both sides of the flip book.

 I added ribbons to both sides and added my main focal points.

 I assembled my cute tag that I attached to my rings.

 I distressed the flip book all over, especially the edges.

Here is my project completed.

 Isn't the mini house adorable? 

 Here is the other side.

Hope you enjoy!  Cherry
