Hello crafty friends!
I am guest designing with Penny Black Christmas in July this week. I am SO honoured and excited to be a part of this beautiful events!!
Christmas in July…A Hot Summer Christmas? Wow! Just imagine Santa sunbathing on the beach and Rudolph playing with a beach ball?! Oh no… That doesn’t right! Christmas to me, will always be that romantic, snowy winter day. No matter how hot summer is!
I’ve set up my week with daily themes and will show you the cards. Today’s theme is Blessed Christmas!
Here is my first card:
For my first card, I used Nature’s Gifts Stamp set as my main supply. I believe that nature is truly beautiful, and we are do very blessed to enjoy it every moment in our lives.
I stamped pine tree and cones on the watercolour panel with embossing ink, white heat embossed. I then blended onto the stamped panel using several colours of Distress inks -Festive Berries, Crushed Olive, Tea Dye, Wild Honey. For the sentiment, I used it from Wonderful & Jolly Stamp set, heat embossed with white embossing power. To finish it off, I mounted all elements as shown to the kraft cardstock, added mixed clear sequins.
For my second card, I used Ode to Christmas Stamp combined with Nature’s Gifts Stamp set. I coloured directly on the Ode to Christmas Stamp with Festive Berries, Vintage Photo, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge Distress markers and then stamped it directly on the watercolour panel, brushed it using waterbrush. I then coloured rest areas with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass using a paint brush. For the sentiment, I die cut ‘Blessed’ from the gold cardstock using Words Of Gratitude Dies. I embellished mixed clear sequins for finishing touches.
That’s it for today. I will be back with more cards using another beautiful Christmas stamps tomorrow.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
