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!

 

Supplies~ 

Stamps: Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas

Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black

CS: MFT Sweet Tooth, Canson Mix Media

PP: Pebbles Winter Wonderland

Other: Lyra Aquarell pencils, Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas dies, MFT Rectangle Stax, MFT Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Stax

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 #2 {30 minute card}

Hi!

 

I’m here to share Card #2 for Christmas in July! It was a quick and easy one to put together and a good design for mass producing (if you like to do that!)

 

I used the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches that closes in a couple hours. I think it’s one I will save to use again!

 

 

I used all Stampin’ Up! products on this one. Old stamps and paper mixed with new dies and embellishments. I love the pattern on the tree! I think it adds a lot of interest. I couldn’t resist adding a star on top.

 

Here is the sketch~

 

Have a great night!

 

Supplies ~ all Stampin’ Up!

Ink: Gumball Green

CS: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, gold foil

DSP: Be of Good Cheer

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!!
