Christmas in July

Some more using the same layout. For all of these, I used the same message, sweet essentials by SU with cottage ivy ink and shaded lilac ink and the same evergreen steel craft die by Poppy Stamps. Only one language for these

Christmas in July

Can you tell I have too many papers that work for this layout? I do like this layout makes nice quick and easy cards so here is another card. Also in two languages. I used the jolly hat builder punch by SU but flipped it to the other side. Same two sets and in the other cards sweet essentials by SU and global greetings Christmas wishes by Papertrey Ink

Christmas in July

After doing yesterday's cards I decided to do some more as I really like how they came out and that I could use papers I could not use for cards :0)

On these ones, I also made on other languages using Papertrey Ink's set global greetings Christmas wishes with rhubarb stalk ink, and I found some pieces of embossed paper on my scraps so used them to punched my ornament punch by SU, I think it was snowflakes by Cuttlebug

for this one was the same sweet essential SU's set with rhubarb stalk ink

Shoebox Thursday

For today's shoebox project I had a very clean and simple card inspired by a summer card Carolina Evans did using DSP. Since I am with Christmas in July I did mine with Christmas paper. Her card was just DSP and a message in a tag so that's where I changed my layout.

I did my layer just like she did BUT instead of adding the message on the tag I did it on the opening with a message from the sweet essential set by SU with rhubarb stalk ink and then added a Christmas shaped that went with my paper. The punch is jolly hat builder punch by SU

New great grand daughter

One of my dearest friends has a brand new great grand daughter as of last week so this is the card I made for her and her husband and mom

I love this fold, but I had a hard time finding a place to write my message so found a solution...adding a flap on one side, it was small it could have been bigger or add two even flaps but decided to go for just one and work perfectly for my needs :0)

The onesie (stamped with rose bud) is by The Stamps of Life as well as the welcome (stamped with tuxedo black), baby is part of celebrate today SU's set also stamped in tuxedo black and girl is part of  endless birthdays wishes also by SU and tuxedo black ink, the little charm was in my stash that I think I must have gotten it at a baby shower and saved it for a future used and since I was hand-delivering the card didn't have to worry about postage or getting broken

Shoebox Tuesday

For today's shoebox project I decided to play with one of the Sunday Tip or Technique that was shared on one of my Yahoo Groups. It was sort of fun, I did have to wear gloves because I don't like messy but otherwise it's a cool way to add color with texture. Since we're in Christmas in July time and I love that saying I had to do a Christmas card :0) all the stamps are from The Stamps of Life set lights4Christmas. The technique was adding the ink with Saran wrinkled wrap and I used distress inks mowed lawn, barn door, mermaid lagoon & fossilized amber. I stamped with tuxedo black and London fog

Best of flowers

These cards were inspired by something on Pinterest and yes once again I'm bad as I didn't take note of from whom it was when I wasn't paying attention on who was doing the cards, do appreciated the idea was just getting too many ideas and getting working on them and later was too lazy to go back and check mostly because seemed that the first time it was so easy to find the card and when I went back it just wasn't showing up that easy

I used for my background the love triangle embossing folder by Cuttlebug, best of flowers set by SU with several memento ink pads and 1-1/4" scallop circle punch also by SU to punch out the flowers. The message is by Stamp A Mania
