OMG - it is July 31!  I have a Festive Christmas in July card today.  I used Carols of Christmas and the beautiful Be Merry Designer Series paper.  I cut my card base a little shorter so the pretty paper on the inside of the card would show too.  I also used the Pretty Pines thinlits to cut out a pine bough to hang my ornaments from.  I will send out a PDF with all the details in my next newletter. Sign up on the right side of my blog.   ENJOY!

Today and tomorrow I am posting my Christmas in July cards made using the Carols of Christmas Stamp set. My Peace on Earth card also uses the Card Front Builder thinlits which cut a cute border. I have a garden green layer showing through the black top layer.  I cut the trees (also with the thinlits) using the Be Merry Designer Series paper. It looks like there is a little snow on my trees.  I textured the circle sentiment with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Put it all together for a peaceful snowy Christmas night. Isn't that deer sweet? (I will be sending out a PDF of the instructions for today & tomorrows cards in my next newsletter....sign up for these extra tips & inspiration.)  ENJOY!

The Carols of Christmas stamp set & Card Front Thinlits are in the holiday catalog and there is a special Customer launch making it available to purchase for all on August 1, 2017.

Message in a Bottle - Hello

Today's card is my entry in the SU! Only Challenge #179 - New Fun from Stampin' Up!
The Challenge was to use something new from the Annual Catalog and my card is from the darling stamp set Message in a Bottle.  I added a little bling with the Eastern Palace Gold Stickers & DSP and tied it up in a pretty lace bow.  ENJOY!  (Be sure to check out SUOCHALLENGES.COM)
