Christmas in July

Hello there!

Its Christmas in July and I’m glad I was able to do some simple background technique on today’s project. I know I might be too late to try coloring backgrounds using distress inks but its good to try things out even if its been around for a while.

I used three different ink colors to color my background then heat embossed some stars and sentiment using silver embossing. I must say it looks so pretty in real life. The big snowflake is a die cut using Simon Says Stamp & I cut it from silver glittered paper.

I also added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I used  Sketch Saturday challenge # 420 and color inspiration from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown-July colour challenge.

One Layer card stamping

Today is a super quick one layer card with minimal coloring too.

The stamp images are from Sarah Hurley while the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.

I first stamped the outline images, then colored them by stamping another solid stamp using Hero Arts inks.

I added the sentiment and using the corner chomper, I rounded the top corners.

Happy Sunday!

Just a quick post to share a card project using a sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Sketch # 45.

I used random patterned papers and die cut the shapes with square and rectangle dies.

The stamp sentiment is from Technique Tuesday and the small crab from Paper Smooches Surf & Turf stamp set. I colored the crab with watercolor then fussy cut the two cuties 🙂
