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~

Christmas in July 2016 Days 5 & 6 + Lotus Flowers

Hello!  I finally got back into my craft room today to start catching up on Christmas in July!

 

My first card for Christmas in July Day 5 uses Stampin’ Up! and I am entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge – N is for No Rules.

I used the Among the Branches stamp set and the Woodland embossing folder. The patterned papers are from the All is Calm designer paper series.

My second card is for Christmas in July Day 6 and uses Verve stamps and Carta Bella paper. I used texture paste with a stencil from MFT which I heat set. I added some stickles to the branch image.  I am entering this card into the Anything Goes challenge at Craft Rocket Challenges.

And lastly I have a floral birthday card I made using Waffle Flower stamps and Bo Bunny papers. The flowers were stamped and then cut out with my Scan N Cut and colored with copics.

Christmas in July 2016 – Day 4

I’m back with my Christmas card for the day. I finished it earlier but had to wait for it to dry.

 

2016 Card 71 - Whimsy Stamps Snow Bunny

 

This little sweetie is an Elisabeth Bell stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I had a good time coloring her! I added fun flock to her jacket and hat. I also added stickles to the snow.  The vellum piece was embossed with a Darice embossing folder…I didn’t measure it before gluing it down and had to trim it a bit.

 

Have a great night!

Happy 4th of July!

 

I made two cards on Friday to share today using Taylored Expressions stamps.

 

Here is the first one using Light Up the Night.  Do you see Mickey?  I didn’t even notice at first but there is a Mickey head out of the 3 big fireworks! I colored the fireworks using several Stampin’ Up! markers – Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Island Indigo and Lost Lagoon.

 

2016 Card 68 - Taylored Expressions Light Up the Night

 

The plaid paper was cut using an MFT Cover Up die – the Stitched Cover Up companion – Vertical. I added a few star brads from my stash to complete the card.

 

Here is the second card using the 4th of July Wreath.  I stamped it on a tag cut from Build a Tag #1 and colored it with copics. I added twine and a star brad from my stash to finish it off.
