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.

ABC Series 2017: A is for…#1

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!

Christmas in July 2017 #5

Good morning!

 

Today I am sharing card 5 for Christmas in July! Some time last year, I made a list of my Christmas stamps and papers to “match up” along with different coloring methods.

 

I used a stamp set from WPlus9, paper from Echo Park and distress inks to color the images.

 

 

I used Blueprints 15 from MFT to make a layout for my card. The embossed panel was made with Echo Park’s Pine Boughs folder.

 

Have a great day!

 

Supplies~

Stamps: WPlus9 Friends for All Seasons Winter

Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black, Tim Holtz Distress inks: Rusty Hinge, Barn Door, Mowed Lawn

CS: MFT Kraft and Jellybean Green, Canson Mix Media

PP: Echo Park I Love Christmas

Other: WPlus9 Friends for All Seasons Winter dies, Echo Park Pine Boughs embossing folder, MFT Blueprints 15

Christmas in July 2017 #4

I was able to get two Christmas cards made this afternoon! I’ll share one now and have one scheduled to post tomorrow. I am having a ton of fun creating this month!

 

This is from one of my Matchup lists – Lawn Fawn stamps + Pebbles paper and a twist of watercolor pencils. I used my Lyra Aquarell pencils to color the images on Canson Mix Media paper.

 

 

I continued the sentiment on the inside with “cheery & bright”.

 

I am entering this card into the Christmas in July challenge at Stamp Ink Paper. 

 

Have a great night!
