Christmas in July Blog Hop

For the first card, I used the stamp set Havin' a Ball. I colored with COPICs and added some fun with ribbon and a spiral clip! I used the Big Scalloped Squares Nestabilities for the diecut.

For the next card I used two stamp sets. Ready Set Snow and Santa Claus is Coming. For the background, I used White Glossy cardstock, and stamped using the Stazon Cloud White stamp pad. I then brayered over it with the Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor stamp pad. The diecut is one of the new Nestabilities that we carry - called Labels 10.

Christmas in July is just FUN to say, isn't it? It is a great time to start getting ideas for those holiday cards you are going to make this year........ isn't it?

I am a member of PaperWings - an All Angel Company group where anyone can go to get inspiration using TAC stamps and supplies! We are holding a Christmas in July Blog Hop and I am so excited to participate!

The cards posted above are two that I will be offering as part of my September "Jump Start Your Holiday Cards" Stamp a Stack.

If you'd like any more information on my upcoming September class - please ask!

Now that you looked at my cards........ check out the other participants!

How Big is YOUR World?

This is another of the cards that we will be making at my For the Guys card class in August.

I had fun making this card cuz - uh well - I like FROGS - so the frog and the turtle - they were just TOO cute together.

The image is from the Everyday Cuties stamp set. The sentiment is one I use on many of my projects, and is from the stamp set Bug of Fun.

July Blog Hop - Spotlighting

On the TAC Savvy Projects Blog - they are featuring the technique of Spotlighting. I haven't done it a lot - but do love how it looks. I took one of our new stamp sets - Majestic Mountain . I stamped with the Rich Cocoa Memento Stamp Pad, and colored with COPICs. I stamped the wolf with the Black Memento - and again - colored with COPICs (and popped this little guy up for some additional dimension!)

This is one of the cards that will be part of my Guy Cards class coming up in August.
