Day 9 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019

Hi everyone!

I’m playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event again this year!

Pink & Main was the Day 9 sponsor. I don’t have any of their festive stamps  but I decided to use the cute owl tags by Zsofi as my inspiration. The owl is by Stampendous and I also used a My Favorite Things sentiment plus some Lawn Fawn die cut snowflakes.

Christmas in July – Day 14

Happy Sunday!

Christmas in July Day 14 and the final Day of the 30 day colouring challenge!

For today’s card, I used one of my favourite festive stamps – the wonderful Stampendous Kitty Claws. I LOVE this stamp so much! My mum bought it first, over a decade or so ago, but I kept borrowing it, so I was very happy to pick one up for myself about five years ago! The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

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!

Christmas in July – Day 2

Hello everyone!

Christmas in July Day 2 (Day 18 of the colouring challenge) and today I inked up another older Stampendous stamp, Chickadee!

I coloured it using the fab, non-festive palette over at CAS Colours & Sketches this week, although I did have to use a drop of yellow for his beak!!

I added a sentiment from Penny Black complete my very simple card!

Christmas in July – Day 1

Hello everyone!

When I decided to play along with the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge using my wood mounted stamps again, I knew I wanted to find a way of using my Christmas stamps as well. Then I thought of Christmas in July and decided to use my festive wood mounted stamps for the second half of the 30 day challenge. I’m aiming to continue the theme during the rest of the month and expand my supplies to included dies and clear stamps… once the colouring challenge is over that is!

So, for Christmas in July Day 1 (Day 17 of the colouring challenge), I inked up an older Stampendous stamp, Owl Tree. I can remember where/when I purchased so many of my older stamps. But this one? No idea! I suspect I probably got it as a bargain…. but apart from that, its origins are a mystery! I do however remember where I got those little Lia Griffith/Hero Arts snowflakes I used for the background – I got them while standing in line during Create 2015. Complete spur of the moment purchase! Brings back fun memories of the event!

I used a sketch from a past My Favorite Things sketch challenge (Number 368… the old challenge blog seems to have disappeared and I can’t find any archives to link to). The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Greetings window

 

Hello everyone!

OK, so I know when I planned my wood-mounted stamp challenge, I earmarked July for using my Christmas stamps. However, it seems I can’t wait for Christmas in July! It’s just Day 6 of the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge and my personal wood stamp challenge and I’ve already inked up a Christmas stamp!

In my defence, when I saw the Stampendous Greetings Window in one of my stamp boxes, I knew it would fit the CAS Christmas challenge so well that I just HAD to use it! The theme of the challenge this month is ‘gifts’ and I thought this stamp would be perfect for that!

I decided to use a sketch from a new-to-me challenge, TGIF Challenges, so my first step was to choose some patterned paper. I had my doubts about using a gift-themed paper as I was a bit concerned that it would be too matchy-matchy… but I think it works OK in the end. After embossing the image, I coloured it using my Twinkling H2O paints and then adhered it to my base card using sticky fixers. Et voila! Super quick and easy Christmas card done! Must remember this design when I create cards for the Caring Hearts drive later this year.
