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!

Christmas in July 2016 – Day 3

Hi again!  I’m back with Day 3’s Christmas card that I just finished.

 

Today’s card combines Winnie & Walter stamps with Basic Grey paper.  I’m linking up with the new Christmas in July challenge at The Paper Players.

 

Winnie and Walter Happy Christmas

 

I used Winnie & Walter Essentials: Noelle cutaways for the scalloped pieces and the bow.  The stamps are from their Happy Christmas set. I thought the deer and wreath went well with the woodgrain paper from Basic Grey’s Aspen Frost paper pad.

Christmas in July 2016 – Day 2

Today’s Christmas card features WPlus9 stamps, Authentique papers and watercolor pencils.

 

WPlus9 Merriest Wishes

 

The image from the Merriest Wishes stamp set was watercolored with Lyra Aquarell pencils and fussy cut. Both patterned paper layers were cut with the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers dies. It doesn’t show well in the picture but I added Fun Flock to the elf’s hat.

 

Have a great day!

Christmas in July 2016 – Day 1

Yes, it’s time for Christmas in July! Yay!

Here is my card for Day 1, trying to revive my daily “matchup” series. Today’s is Your Next Stamp + American Crafts paper and my Zig Clean Color brushes.  I used the current sketch at Your Next Stamp for my card layout.

Your Next Stamp Winter Fun Reindeer

Very simple card but for mailing purposes, I need to try and keep them that way.

Here is the sketch~
