‘Christmas in July?’ w/ SU!

Hello!

Yes, I am back and it hasn’t been months! Just a couple days! Time to start sharing some of what I have been working on this summer. First off, we’ll start with an oddly typical July theme…nope, not patriotic. It’s Christmas! I wasn’t sure when it started being a thing so I looked it up on Bing. I am so shocked that it is not such a recent thing! Who knew?

“Christmas in July started 84 years ago on July 24th and 25th in 1933 at a girls’ camp called Keystone Camp in Brevard, North Carolina.” (must have been a question from last year because now it would be exactly 85 years)

How weird is that? I never knew! I thought for sure it was just in my lifetime and more likely of my adult lifetime. I was wrong…and I am a-okay with that! 

Anyway, I made a Christmas card with the new DSP (Designer Series Paper) from Stampin’ Up! that is on sale right now. What?! You didn’t know that Stampin’ Up! was having a DSP sale? Crazy! Although, I guess it is my fault since I haven’t been blogging…let’s remedy that!

DSP is on sale! Buy 3 Get 1 FREE! Yep, that lovely 4 letter word is back in play! You can click on the blue words now, or later, and I will leave an attachment at the bottom of this post that you can click on as well.

Back to the card…

This card layout came from a sketch challenge put on by Sketch Saturday. It really inspired me to use the Christmas paper from the DSP Sale! Actually, it screamed at me!

Christmas in July was fun and I am so in love with the paper. The paper is called Under the Mistletoe and I really felt inspired by many of the sheets in this set. You can see all the different patterns really well in this picture. So much versatility. It’s double sided and you get 2 of each sheet! This one with the bells is my favorite! I’m using this card for a class this weekend. Wanna come?

1532305723368

For the card I flip-flopped the sketch and used Real Red card stock as a base and a strip of Old Olive card stock along the left side instead of the right. I used the Stitched Shape Framelits for my circle and oval. I like using them because they give it a border and finished look. Yes, I also changed it up by using an oval instead of a circle for the sentiment, but that is okay! I need to learn to slip out-of-the-box a little more often! It’s a healthy thing to do, especially in crafting! Then I used my dauber and Old Olive ink pad to distress the edges of the sentiment oval and the Old Olive strip. I also used clear rhinestones and a red Sharpie to give them color since my son and I agreed that you really couldn’t see the clear ones very well. I love the little sparkle they gave the card. Since I was keeping the card simple, the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set suited it perfectly.

It’s simple yet striking, I think. Tell me what you think! I’m truly curious to know!

On to the next card/blog…

Enjoy your day! Keep on crafting!

Blessings, June

SU! I’m in LOVE!

Good afternoon! Happy Saturday!!

I’m in LOVE!! This is the best Santa ever!! It makes me think of my hubby! Almost twin like, wouldn’t you agree??

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s a thinlit from Stampin’ Up! called Detailed Santa Thinlit!  You can bundle the thinlit with the stamp set here. It’s in the Holiday Catalog.

I used Cherry Cobbler for the base and cut the Santa out of the front of the card and then put a Whisper White piece of cardstock behind it! I then stamped the Ho! Ho! Ho! in Cherry Cobbler on the white. There was a border created from the thinlit so I used my Dazzling Details silver to edge the frame of the Santa. Added some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s twine and another sentiment on top from the coordinating stamp set. I think it is a darling card, if I do say so myself! Had to have that thinlit when I saw it because it made me think of my loving hubby! We took this picture last year at Christmas! His beard is about that long again. (He had to cut it shorter for his job earlier this year, but has since let it grow out again and nobody has said anything)

Enjoy your Saturday!! Happy crafting!

Blessings, June

SU! Sparkling Christmas Pines

Good Evening!

I trust you all had a marvelous and delicious Thanksgiving yesterday! We were with about 20 family members on my husband’s side! He has a very large family and it was lots of fun and games after the eating was done! I love board games!

Then we came home and I got in the creative mood…but first, I made a messy blob! That was weird and funny all at the same time…and then my son said this morning that I could use my Dazzling Details as a weapon if someone came into the house. Boys!

Here’s the scoop… I was making this card and decided I would use it for a Silver and Gold Challenge so I needed to add some sliver. I grabbed my silver Dazzling Details and saw that it was a bit dry inside. Usually if I just squeeze it enough, it will make a little blob on my paper, but will break free. This time, however, it shot the top off and went whizzing by my arm and then the bottle unloaded in a complete blob on my paper! Luckily not the card!

I had to turn on more lights to find the darned top nozzle! It was under my desk. I cleaned up the floor and then looked in dismay at the blob! Then I grabbed my poker to smear what I could on my card and thought I would have to throw the rest away. (I do NOT like to waste anything!) Hubby to the rescue. We were able to scoop it back into the bottle, he cleared the dry nozzle and I was back in business! Then I got out a plastic kid’s paint brush and used it to brush on more of the silver on the pine needles. I really like how it turned out! And it would not have been so perfect if it wasn’t for the big blob, first!

The stamp set is Christmas Pines stamp set and happens to still be on sale this month for 25% off. I also used the matching DSP (Designer Paper Series) that goes with this set, as well as, the framelits for the pine needles. I really like how the card turned out. The card base and berry cutout is Cherry Cobbler. The pine needles and ink are Emerald Envy. The baker’s twine is Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. The Decorative Label Punch was used for the sentiment, which came from the Christmas Pines stamp set. For the Emerald Envy punch behind the sentiment, I just cut the punched out piece in half and pulled it apart to show the edge.

Overall, I am pleased with how it turned out. I trust you like it too!

Until tomorrow! Happy crafting!

Blessings, June
