Christmas in July!!!!!

Yes, I know it is not Christmas, but it sure is cold enough today for it to be Christmas. The sun was beautiful, but the wind was quite crisp. And Yvette has made some pumpkin soup for dinner which I am really looking forward to. So it is now the time of year to get ready for Christmas and what better way to do that, than to make some Christmas cards.

On Saturday I held my first Christmas Stamp-a-Stack for the year. This is one of the cards we made.

Blue Snowflake Christmas Card

It is a shame the shimmer doesn’t show up very well in the picture. To make this card you would need a selection of different sized snowflake stamps. Then you need to use three different shades of the same colour inks. In this case I used blue, but I think that rich razzleberry, regal rose, pretty in pink and pink pirouette would make a gorgeous pink card. The sentiment needs to be quite bold so that the pattern in the snowflakes do not overpower it. This is layered onto Brushed Silver card (124918 $13.95 pk 10) and then onto whisper white (106549 $15.95 pk 40) and sprayed with frost white shimmer paint (116854 $11.50) made into a spray with rubbing alcohol.

Come and make some Christmas cards like this one at my next Christmas Stamp-a-Stack on Saturday 21st of July at 1pm. Call 0418612096 or email me to book !
