Christmas in July 2022 – Day 13

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 13 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in The Paper Players colour challenge.

I’ve noticed that I often use blue/aqua on my festive card backgrounds and I was determined that I wouldn’t do that this time! Instead, I stencilled some Nuvo Moonstone glitter paste onto my card base. While that was drying, I stamped the fabulous Wispy Trees by The Stamp Market using a couple of distress oxide inks and cut them using the coordinating dies.

After arranging a little forest, I added a sentiment by Mama Elephant and applied a layer of a Wink of Stella to the bottom section of my card, although that doesn’t show up at all in my photos!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I love that this week’s sketch is so open to interpretation – leave that big central panel blank.. or use an embossing folder… or add a focal point… or… I had so many ideas!

In the end, I chose to use some of my patterned paper mountain and the Stamp Market’s Ready to Bloom cover die.

The sentiment is from an old Simon Says Stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the Just Us Girls challenge which has a super colour combo this week!

I love how a couple of Instagram cardmakers, Julia and Elizabeth, use coloured die cuts with the same die and their makes inspired my card! I used a brand new die from the Stamp Market’s Add Some Greenery die set, coloured with distress ink, plus an older sentiment die by Waffle Flower Crafts.

Pink, grey and silver forest

Hello again everyone!

Next up today is my entry for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge, which has one of my favourite combos – pink, grey, silver and white.

I used the gorgeous Wispy Trees by The Stamp Market, stamped with distress oxide inks. I added a few strips of silver glitter paper and some silver thread to add some different textures as well as a bit of festive bling! Finally I stamped a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 13 – 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2021

Hi everyone!

As Tracey McNeely isn’t running her 25 Days of Christmas Tags event this year, I have created my own event using 25 days from Tracey’s event posts over the last decade, as I explained in this post.

Day 13’s inspiration is Day 13, 2016. I loved all the layers in Chrissy’s tag so here’s my take using the fabulous Winter’s Wispy Trees by the Stamp Market.

Thanks for stopping by!
