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!

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!

Me & My Bunny

This month my card group had a Mo Manning brand card swap. I have some really old digis of hers, but I chose to use this adorable little girl stamp I got last year. It’s one of her images from Penny Black.

 

I colored her with copics and paper pieced her dress. Paper piecing is still one of my favorite things to do!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Create a Critter Birthday Card

Hello!

 

My nephew turned 4 last week and he had a Paw Patrol themed party. So I made him this card using the dalmatian from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.

I’ve had the Cricut Explore Air since October and have hardly touched it. I finally figured out (by watching this¬†video) how to cut multiple layers on one mat. It’s quite easy! Now I should be able to use my machine more.

 

Now I am all caught up on posting cards. I will need to get crafty soon!

 

Have a great night!
