Stamp It Christmas in July Hop!



Welcome to the Christmas in July Stamp It Group Blog Hop!!

The Stampin Up Holiday catalog doesn’t come out until September but our very creative demonstrators have designed some awesome Christmas cards and projects just to get you in the mood!  Ho Ho Ho!! Here is my card!



I have seen a lot of beautiful cards made with the Swirly Scribble Thinlits (#141477) and the Swirly Bird stamp set (#141749), including cards with wreaths so I though I would try making a Christmas wreath with this bundle.  I started with a base made from Crumb Cake cardstock, 11″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.

I inked the raised side of the inside of the Brick Wall embossing folder (#138288)with Sahara Sand ink and a dobber and ran it through the Big Shot. The brick wall look this created is stunning! I  used Very Vanilla cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ by 3 1/4″.

I laid down a piece of washi tape (the washi tape is part of Stampin Up’s Designer Tin of Cards kit) on the left-hand side of the card and trimmed off the edges with paper snips. I cut out all of the pieces I needed from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to create the wreath,little swirly balls and the cute little red bird using very vanilla cardstock. The littlest swirly images are heat embossed with gold powder,and the bird is stamped with Real Red ink and fussy cut out. I then stamped the leave image from one of the stamps in the Jar of Love stamp set (#141587) and cut it out with the matching framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits (#141490).

I added the sentiment down towards the bottom of the card (kind of sideways) in Early Expresso ink using “Merry Christmas” from the Snow Place stamp set (#139738). This cute little set came out last year and carried over to the annual catalog…sooo cute!!!
