Hi!

 

I was up super early this morning and made this Christmas card, then I got busy with Sunday chores and came close to forgetting to blog it!

 

I was inspired by the color palette at Color Throwdown in making this card. I really like how it turned out!

 

 

When looking for paper with green in it, I came across this striped design in the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP. Then I decided to use this fun SU set I bought last year and never inked up. The NOEL is from the coordinating die set, I thought it made a good mantel for my stockings.

 

Here is the color palette used ~

 

Have a great night!

 

Supplies~ all Stampin’ Up!

Stamps: Hang Your Stocking

Ink: Old Olive, Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: Whisper White Thick, Whisper White, Crumb Cake

Last Christmas in July card

Well this month didn’t pan out quite like I hoped. I had a great first week of the month with my staycation and then I spent 3 weeks battling allergies and bronchitis. Still dealing with allergies a bit, hoping some new medicine clears things up this time!

 

I’ve mentioned before that one of my card groups does a brand swap each month and July’s brand is Impression Obsession. I made a Christmas card using an old set called Winter Cardinals. I’m entering in the current Christmas in July challenge on the Impression Obsession blog.

 

 

I did a little masking with the birdhouse and bird. Then I decided to add a second bird on top of the branch. All the images were colored with copics. I couldn’t fit a sentiment on the front, so I aded it on the inside. It is Impression Obsession die 439-J Merry Christmas.

 

 

Have a great day!

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: SU Crumb Cake, Copic Xpress It blending card

Christmas in July 2017 #8

This is the last of my staycation cards to share. I need to make some time to craft soon!

 

I used more products that I purchased from last year’s SU Holiday catalog. The Christmas Pines set is so pretty! I paired it up with paper from Presents & Pinecone dsp pack.

 

 

Gotta get back to watching the MLB All-Star Game! One of my favorite things about baseball season!

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!
