Christmas In July

Hello Crafty Friends!

Well, what can I say? Nancy and I like the Christmas In The Air Feature so much that we were eager to continue over the Summer too.

Today I'm sharing a couple of projects made for July's Christmas In The Air feature over at STAMPlorations. In this special feature Nancy and I are sharing a couple of Christmas projects each.

My first card features the new Good Tidings Clear Stickers and my favourite snowman from the Yuletide Cheer Digital Stamps - set of 3. Here they are ... the jolly snowmen ...

My background was created using Turquoise, Purple and Ultra Marine Brusho crystals on photo paper/card. I started by sprinkling a bit of each colour on my photo paper/card and spritzed with water to activate the crystals. The purple looked a bit too dominant, and I added some Ultra Marine on top lightly misting until I got my desired effect.

Originally I had intended to use the background with the purple flecks toward the top, but after I had coloured and fuzzy cut the snowmen, I decided the purple flecks looked better towards the bottom.

I attached my elements in place added a doodled border and finished off with a sticker sentiment panel.

Next up is a card using one of Sanna's new stencils, Christmas Wreaths ...

My little eye shadow brushes came out again to play. I used them to blend the following inks through my stencil: Cerise and Grenadine Izink inks for the berries and Verveine, Menthe and Emeraude Izink inks for the leaves

I rounded the corners of my square base card and edged my card with a gold pen. To finish I added a gold edged sticker sentiment panel and a couple of golden pearls.
