Christmas in July – Day 24

Hi Everyone

Day 24 of Christmas in July and I inked up another wood-mounted stamp today – the gorgeous Sparkle Snowflake by Impress Cards and Crafts. I stamped the snowflakes in Distress Oxide inks and then added some Nuvo Glitter drops. The stamped sentiment is by Penny Black.

I’m entering this into the current CAS Christmas challenge where the theme is snowflake.

Christmas in July – Day 22

Hi Everyone!

It’s Christmas in July Day 22 and today I’m playing along with another new-to-me challenge, the Fusion Card challenge. I decided to use both parts of the challenge as I loved the sketch and I also really enjoy making my Christmas in July cards with non-traditional colours.

I used one of my oldest Simon Says Stamp dies, the Mod Christmas Tree as my focal point and after adhering it to a die-cut oval, I covered it with a generous amount of Nuvo glitter drops! I added a strip of patterned paper to my card base before adhering the tree/oval.

Finally I stamped a sentiment by Penny Black.

Thank for stopping by!

Christmas in July – Day 5

Hello everyone!

I’m still playing catch up with my cards and here’s the card for Christmas in July Day 5 (Day 21 of the colouring challenge). I inked up the fabulous Christmas Color stamp from Penny Black and coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. I seriously can’t remember the last time I used this stamp!

I used the rather festive colour palette over at the Color Throwdown (red, green, black and white) and the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

The paper is by Fancy Pants and the small sentiment is from a Penny Black clear set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July – Day 4

Happy Saturday everyone!

Here’s my card for Christmas in July Day 4 (Day 20 of the colouring challenge) using another older Hero Arts stamp, Whimsical Snow People! Can we just take a moment to look at that snowbaby?! Isn’t he the cutest?!

I decided to play along with the current Case This Sketch challenge and while I was looking through my patterned paper, I found some paper that actually replicated some of the layers in the sketch – even the sentiment strip was in the right place! Isn’t that amazing!

Thanks for stopping by!

I coloured him with my Twinkling H2Os this week and then created the background using a Uniko stencil with some distress ink covered with glitter paste.
