Christmas in July 2017 #3

Hi!

 

Here is card 3 for Christmas in July! This one was created from one of my lists – full of MFT stamps and dies! This list has Christmas stamps, Blueprints, background stamps and possible color combos. The possibilities are endless!

 

 

All the pieces were cut with MFT Blueprints one. The white panel was stamped with the Abstract background in Paver Red. The green panel was stamped with On the Diagonal background stamp in Gumdrop Green on Gumdrop Green cardstock. The button was finished with SU Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine.

 

Have a great night!

 

Supplies ~ all MFT unless otherwise noted

Stamps: Joyous Christmas Sentiments, Abstract background, On the Diagonal background

Ink: Paver Red, Gumdrop Green

CS: Paver Red, Gumdrop Green, Sweet Tooth, Brushed Gold

Other: Blueprints 1, SU dimensionals, SU Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine

Christmas in July 2017 #1

It’s time to kick off one of my favorite crafting events of the year!! Also exciting – this is Post #700!

 

Graphic created using Rhonna Designs app.

 

I am certainly not crazy enough (anymore) to promise a new card every day lol, but I do hope to post often throughout the month!

 

Today’s card uses one of my “Matchups” – first time I am using one of my many lists this year.

La La Land Crafts stamps + Papertrey Ink paper. I had a “twist” of washi tape but I forgot all about it by the time I finished coloring the image lol.

 

 

I kept this card really simple since the paper provided a nice scene for me. I added some fun flock to her coat and gold Wink of Stella to the bell. You can see the shimmer better in the below picture.

 


Have a great night!!

 

Supplies ~ 

Stamps: La La Land Crafts Christmas Bell Marci

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: PTI Scarlet Jewel, Copic Xpress It blending card

PP: PTI Winter Woods

Other: copics, gold Wink of Stella, white fun flock

Christmas in July 2016 – Day 8

Hello!

 

I am back with my card for Christmas in July Day 8.

 

It took me several attempts to get this background right.

 

The Ton Stamps Stamp of Approval

 

This combination is Versamark  & Wow embossing powder in Metallic Platinum super fine. My first experience with a Wow powder and I am super impressed! I bought several on Amazon to try as heat embossing and I don’t get along very well. I think that may change now!

 

My own challenge for this card was The Ton Stamps (this was designed by them for the Holiday Magic Stamp of Approval box), Crate Paper and stickles.  I really love how this card turned out and may need to keep it lol!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: The Ton Stamps for Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic collection

Ink: Versamark 

CS: SU Garden Green and Real Red

PP: Crate Paper Bundle Up

Christmas in July 2016 Day 7

Good morning!

 

I made this card yesterday for Christmas in July Day 7 (yes, still way behind lol) and used the new sketch at Sketch Saturday.

 

2016 Card 75 - Unity Stamp Oh Christmas Joy

 

This fun image is from Unity Stamp Co. and the paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  I really like the traditional red/green on this card!  I added glossy accents to the car windows and stickles for snow.

 

Here is a close up~
