Christmas in July 2017 #7

Hello!

 

Tonight I am sharing card 7 for Christmas in July! This one is for the sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

 

 

Last year I *may* have overdone it a bit purchasing Christmas stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog…and then I didn’t even use them! So I am trying to make up for that now. I used the Seasonal Bells stamp set, coordinating bell punch and Presents & Pinecones paper (also from last year). The sentiment was cut out with a banner from the Bunch of Banners framelits set.

 

Here is the sketch~

 

 

Have a great night!

ABC Series 2017: A is for… #2

A is for Aviator!

 

Many years ago, MFT used to release the PI stamps as a VIP package early with a bonus mini sentiment set. I have had this adorable girl for over 5 years.  I finally inked her up for the first time today.

 

 

My girl was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then she was cut out with my Scan N Cut. I was so impressed with how well it cut out! I then colored her with copics. I used a couple dies from MFT Blueprints 3 to build my card and I added a few clouds from the MFT Puffy Clouds die set.

 

Have a great night!!

Good morning!

 

Today I am sharing Card 6 for Christmas in July! I used retired Stampin’ Up stamps and paper on this one. The layout is from Match the Sketch #184. I liked the strips going across the background.

A is for…Alligator!

 

Last year I came up with an ABC series for the blog…I missed the entire first half of the year but hoping to keep up with it for the second half!

 

Yesterday morning I created this card using an image from the cute Newton’s Nook Beach Pals set. I used MFT Blueprints 14 to create the layout for the card. I had so much fun creating this scene.

 

 

Have a great day!
