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!
