What YOU didn’t know about a Nutcracker: Freebie Friday #42

FYI before we begin this post — ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA from Stampin’ UP! starts Monday Nov 24th.  Check back tomorrow on my blog for all the details!


I got really excited about the Santa Stache stamp set from Stampin’ UP! when I first saw it.  Did you know that nutcrackers originated from Germany?  Yeah me either.  I looked it up on Wikipedia.   Nutcrackers have a guardian like appearance and almost remind me of a soldier.  I think they are so fun and such a great symbol of Christmas tradition.  The santa is cute too, but I really loved the nutcracker and have to admit that’s why I got the stamp set.  I used our alcohol based blendabilites markers to give this nutcracker some vibrant color.  

Have you ever been to see The Nutcracker performance?  I have, once when I was a kid.  I would love to go again.  Maybe I will take my little one some day.    Here’s another fun fact for you.  There is a Nutcracker Museum in the Bavarian Village in Leavenworth Washington.  And guess what?  I’ve been there, to Leavenworth that is.  Not to the museum.


Here is my video for this card:

  1. I do read the posts about your family and it is fun to get to know the person behind the video! Also, please don’t get tired of your cards. I thought this Nutcracker size was fun but I never get tired of your normal sizes either!
