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.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Garden Bunny

One of my card groups recently resurrected the brand swap, one of my favorites to participate in!

 

This month’s brand is Penny Black and I chose this adorable bunny from the Garden Critters set to work with.

 

 

I colored the bunny with my Stampin Blends since I haven’t used them much. I prefer my copics but these work when I don’t need a huge color palette.

 

The layout of the card is from The Paper Player’s current sketch challenge. I am also entering my card into the Feature a Creature challenge at the Penny Black and More challenge.

 

Here is the sketch~

 

And now I am caught up with my card postings!

Birthday Owl

Last post for tonight! Expect more catching up tomorrow night ~

 

I joined in an Owl swap and then went crazy trying to find an owl in my stash. I know I have quite a few but I was looking for one particular set. This owl is from the I’m Owl Yours stamp set from MFT.

 

 

I used a sketch from the Fusion challenge and flipped it. Paper is from a fall Echo Park paper pad. I wasn’t planning on making a fall-ish/masculine card but the paper was handy 🙂

 

Here is the sketch ~

 

Have a great night!

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!
