Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop for July - Christmas in July! I hope you enjoyed the marvelous projects in the previous blog.
Stampin' Up! changed things with this year's annual catalog and included a few Christmas sets to tide us over until the Holiday Catalog. This gave me a few stamp sets to choose from for this blog. I decided to got away from the traditional green & red for Christmas which was fun & something I don't do often. Without further delay here is my card & project for this month.
This card was a fun one to make as I combined a number of techniques/styles.....embossing resist, sponging, and surprise fold.
This shows an alternate ink combination for sponging of: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, and Soft Sky.
The Curvy Keepsake thinlet has become one of my favorites by Stampin' Up! and is a must have for Christmas projects! I decided to make a luminary out of vellum paper embossed with white embossing powder. The Festival of Trees stamp set was used and again featured the Gorgeous Grunge background stamp as snow. I used some Whisper White cardstock to reinforce the bottom of it as I put a battery operated tea light in it.
The next blog in our Christmas and July hop is the very, very talented Holly!
