Four Cards for Christmas in July

Standard

Hello there Peeps! Well I’m going out with a bang for my Christmas in July projects and sharing four in the same post! Of course I planned to share one every day….but the heat and humidity had me not in the mood to write posts…so this is the only way to get caught up.

This might be the most traditional card I’ve posted so far..and on the last day too!  I’m combining a swell gingham with what I can only describe as sweater pattern. Is there a name for it? I’ve only ever seen it on Christmas sweaters so that’s what I’m going with.
I’ve got more of the sweater pattern here but this time paired with buffalo check. To ensure that the focal images remain the star of the card I’ve layered them over doilies to separate the busy patterns.

Red doilies? Yep I went there too. And just check out that awesome snowflake ribbon..I am swooning.

Last but not least……this card is my favorite of the batch because that image just yells Christmas with the gloves and cocoa and candy cane. Those gorgeous flowers coordinate so perfectly and the leaves bring a welcome pop of green.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Card Trio for Christmas in July

Standard

Well hello there Peeps! I’m back to share more cards for Christmas in July. I know I know…I wanted to share everyday…….but it’s just been boiling hot here and I’ve not been in the mood to write posts. I have been creating the cards though so today I’ll be sharing 3 to help me get caught up a bit.

Baby it’s Cold Outside Greeting Card

Isn’t that cheeky of me? Posting an it’s cold out side when it’s actually super hot and humid?  Brown and blues are a very nontraditional color scheme…but I just love it. I think it’s warm and woodsy. I’ve added pretty ribbon and flowers and sequins and the fabulous gold striped washi tape.

I’m basically obsessed with aqua and red together even on Christmas cards. Also I’ve got some new dies to create picture frames so you should be expecting to see them on everything from here on out because I love them so much. I’m layering stickers with flowers here and I quite like it : )

Okay that’s a little help to get me caught up…..be on the look out for more Christmas in July projects while  I work through the rest.

Retro Christmas in July Deluxe Creativity Kit and Projects

Standard

HoHoHo Peeps! Yes I’m sharing more fun and festive Christmas in July projects. And this time a Creativity Kit. Because I am obsessed with kits. I just love to open the package and sort out all the fabulous paper pretties and embellies. Of course I took one for myself because I’m a cheeky little elf lol. See what I did there?  Okay too much holiday humor. I put myself in the mindset of CAS cards this time and didn’t go overboard with all the extras on the finished projects. In fact…this time I only added cardstock to what was already included in the kit. So you could make these cards too…just as they are shown. Quick to create and easy to mail. And I was able to get 10 A2 sized cards from this kit. Naturally I added paper doilies, colorful clips, star shaped sequins, twine , and flowers to the kit so you can play with them too.

Down by the Sea Cards for BoBunny

Standard

Hey  Peeps!  I’m coming at ya today with two very different cards made from the same paper collection.  It just really shows the versatility of Down by the Sea from BoBunny. I have 1 card that is just a bit glam chic with pinks and golds. The other card is really beachy and outdoorsy.

I think these cards would be perfect for just about any occasion.

Pink and gold together is so glam! I was inspired by the cut aparts. I’ve used the gold for matting and accents and stacked the cut-aparts to create a nice focal point.

To create these flower embellishments I stamped the floral image and added gold embossing powder. Once it was heat set I added a little Pearlecents for a really subtle bit of color and clipped it out leaving a small border. There’s a die cut doily there tucked in under the sentiment and starfish and a layered chipboard sticker on top.

I am now completely obsessed with Confetti Paste and this gold matches my project perfectly!

This is the second card and it is really cute and beachy.

With the first card, I layered the cut aparts…but this time I added stitching for a subtle detail and texture. The focal point here is the layered chipboard sticker. Pearly accents work great with the natural feel of this card, and give it a touch of an upscale underwater feel.

I’ve tucked in a smaller doily this time….but added the same confetti paste and I think it looks great on both cards.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

CAS Butterfly Greeting Card Set

Standard

Hey Peeps. Well I’m going CAS today. I know..it surprised me to. When I got my supplies out to create cards all the fun little images and die cuts just fell into place and I thought why not? Everything doesn’t need to have flowers and chippies and embellies. Sometimes you just need a quick card that’s good for any occasion that can be mailed in a regular sized envelope right?

 

I had a fun time mixing some vintagy patterns of paper with some that were just a bit edgy and on trend. Layers of die cuts, RRR trims, and simple pearly accents create loads of detail.

Diamond Satin Ivory.

Plaid Ribbon Apple Green.

Seam Binding Melon.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
