Xmas in July cards

Posted by on July 5, 2009 in Christmas | 1 comment

Trying to come up with holiday cards using sets I already have. I didn’t order any new holiday sets from the new catalog since we’re getting a couple at convention and I usually want a couple from the Holiday Mini (preview available August 1st).

Love using the Boho Blossoms punch with this set – very quick and easy way to add dimension. I’ve always thought of Candy Canes with the red striped ribbon too 🙂
Stamps: Christmas Punch
Paper: Glorious Gree, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Glorious Green
Accessories: Wide Oval and Boho Blossoms punches, Red Striped ribbon, Dimensionals

A super quick and easy card was inspired by “maryetim” whose original can be viewed at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1027452?cat=14655&sorttime=all&sortby=v&way=deschttp://www.keenankreations.blogspot.com/
Stamps: Snow Swirled
Paper: Shimmery White, Sage Shadow
Ink: Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke

This one really looks much nicer in person since it’s embossed and layered on Shimmery White and Brushed Silver cardstocks.

Stamps: Season of Joy, Heard from the Heart
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Shimmery White, Brushed Silver
Accessories: Dimensionals, Silver Embossing powder

I had a lot of fun with this one – love the “emboss resist” technique.

Stamps: Season of Joy
Ink: Ballet Blue, Brilliant Blue, Versamark
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Shimmery White (center piece)
Accessories: Organza Ribbon, Dimensionals, sponges, White Embossing Powder
