Christmas in July 2022 – Day 31

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 31 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge.

It should come as no surprise that I chose the middle row – die cutting AND a chance to use some of my patterned paper mountain? Yes please! I chose an older die by Lil Inker Designs, a few sheets of blue patterned paper and got to work! It’s quite weird that my card for Day 31 uses the same technique that I used  for Day 1! The sentiment is by Mame Elephant.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 30

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 30 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Just Us Girls challenge to case a designer.

I chose to CASE this card by JJ Bolton – I love her style and this card caught my eye as it is such a fabulous way of showcasing the small ornaments dies by Waffle Flower Crafts that I bought recently. I chose a smaller colour palette and added silver mirror card behind each of by die cuts! This card was a labour of love! You would not believe how much time I spent arranging all those little ornaments.

I added a sentiment by Savvy Stamps plus a small holly sprig to complete my take on JJ’s card. Thanks for the inspiration JJ!

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 29

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 29 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today’ I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has a peaceful palette of cream, kraft and powder blue.

For my card, I used The Greetery’s Rustic Wreath die set plus a few Waffle Flower ornaments. I’m a bit disappointed that the blue in the photos looks much deeper than real life!

The sentiment is by Creative Expressions.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 28

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 28 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Perfectly CAS challenge where the theme is ‘Festive’.

I kept my card super CAS, in line with the challenge rules to just use one third of the card base. The stamp is from an old Hero Arts/Archivers set (oh how I still miss Archivers!) which I embossed using glittery embossing powder – the sparkle is amazing in real life!

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 27

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 27 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

When I saw the sketch I thought ‘SNOWFLAKES’! Time to get those dies working! I used three dies by Simon Says Stamp (Alicia, Rylann and Kate), together with the Filigree Snowflakes embossing folder, also by Simon. The sentiment is by Penny Black.

Christmas in July 2022 – Day 26

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 26 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the CAS Colours and  Sketches challenge.

I have to admit, I was a little stumped when I saw the sketch but then I suddenly remembered one of my favourite deer dies – the Swift Reindeer by Memory Box. I thought that I used it every single year, but I was shocked to discover I last used him in July 2019! Anyway, for today’s card, I masked off a triangle shape and then blended some Salvage Patina distress ink before lifting some ink off with water. I coloured the deer with distress inks and Twinkling H2O paints and adhered to my card. Finally I added a Mama Elephant sentiment.
