Christmas in July 2021 – Day 18

Happy Sunday everyone!

Welcome to Day 18 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has a stunning palette of navy, turquoise, green and magenta.

What a stunning colour combo! It took me quite a while to decide on a way to showcase it! First of all I was thinking of multicoloured snowflakes but then I remembered this beautiful large ring wreath die by Simon Says Stamp – an oldie but a goodie! I coloured each bauble with my Twinkling H2O paints and adhered it to a base that I’d cut using the brand new-to-me Pinpoint Burst die by Memory Box, which I finally got my hands on this week after MONTHS of waiting for it to get into a UK retailer again!

I then spent far too long working out where to put my sentiment and then how to adorn said sentiment! In the end, I chose a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp/Avery Elle Stamptember collaboration, a Sizzix bow and some ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 10

Happy Saturday everyone!

Welcome to Day 10 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown challenge which has a palette of yellow, grey, black and white.

I was quite short on time today but I managed to grab a few moments this evening to make this card with the beautiful Memory Box Flowering Christmas Tree which I coloured with distress inks. I seriously can’t believe this tree is from 2011! Anyway, I added a sentiment by Simon Says Stamp, a pot from an Altenew die set and some gems to complete my card.

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 9

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 9 of Christmas in July 2021! I had one of those days today – a troublesome task which took MUCH longer than hoped and which will drag on due to a few technical hitches. Ugh!

So I wasn’t really in the most creative frame of mind this evening… but I had to make a Christmas in July card. So, this is just for fun, no challenges today – just a super quick die cut card using the Memory Box Antique Pine Label die, the Poppystamps Winterberries die and a couple of smaller Simply Graphic dies. All coloured with distress oxides inks! The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 4

Happy Sunday everyone!

Welcome to Day 4 of  Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at the Global Design Project.

I used my brand new Sizzix 3D Christmas Tree embossing folder – I love how all those fabulous trees look on that metallic cardstock – but it was quite difficult to photograph! I added an older Memory Box die and a sentiment by My Favorite Things to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July 2021 – Day 2

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 2 of Christmas in July 2021!

Today I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players . For this very CAS take, I used the fabulous Poppystamps Whittle Reindeer die with a Memory Box sentiment and a Creative Expressions embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Because Foliage

Happy Friyay everyone!

So, as I was indulging in a little crafty retail therapy today, I remembered that I bought a beautiful Adriana Poppystamps foliage die last month and hadn’t yet used it! So I knew I wanted to change that this weekend! I thought that it would work well with the colour combo from this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (red, green, kraft and pink).

I coloured the die cut with distress ink and then added the Memory Box seed stems and the Just Because Posh Script sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
