Christmas in July Day 3 – Santa & Friends

Hello!

 

Day 3’s prompt is Santa! I love to make Santa cards. I pulled this image from the Santa & Friends MFT stamp set. I bought it last year and never used it, along with the paper from Echo Park.

 

 

I colored the image with my copics which have been sorely neglected for the last 11 months. I added some Wink of Stella to Santa’s suit and the ground but it’s not showing up well.

 

The card layout is from Freshly Made Sketches. I made it into a standard A2 card. The background was embossed with a folder from Taylored Expressions. Then I added a few pearls to finish off the card.

Christmas in July Day 2 – Rustic Retreat & Merry Christmas to All

Hi!

 

Tonight’s card is for Christmas in July Day 2. Our prompt is to use Christmas washi tape. 

 

I’m linking this card to the Anything Goes challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.

 

I pulled out some retired Christmas washi tape and papers from Stampin Up to use with my new Rustic Retreat set that I won a couple days ago. I paired them with a set I bought last year and never inked up, Merry Christmas to All.

 

 

I stamped the house twice so I could make a mask. I   then stamped the trees on the far left and far right. I didn’t want them to overlap with the trees around the house. The image was colored with Stampin Blends and Stampin Write markers. 

 

I wasn’t sure what to do with the washi tape since I rarely use it. I settled on adding a strip to the bottom and adding some to make the image look like it’s framed. 

 

Thanks for visiting!

Christmas in July Day 1 – Dashing Deer

Hello!

 

One of my crafty groups has an annual Christmas  in July card challenge and it has been years since I participated. I decided to join in since I haven’t made many Christmas cards over the last few years.

 

For this card I used all current Stampin Up supplies, it has been a personal challenge for me to use many stamp sets that haven’t seen ink yet. 

 

The card layout is the current sketch at Sunday Stamps.

 

 

Here is the sketch~

August 30 in 30 #2

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!
