Christmas in August

I finally started my Christmas cards today. I made three, but this is the only finished one. I fashioned this off of a CAS challenge. Everything here is Stampin Up except the red card stock. Baja Breeze, chocolate chip, always artichoke, scalloped edge punch, chit chat rub ons, and retired holiday paper.


So much has happened since my last post! Switched departments and job titles at work, been sick, took vacation, crafted for hours, lol! I really wish my camera took better pictures of the things I've done! grr. these pictures just don't seem to do them justice! The card above was made with the New In Colors, Great friend butterfly stamp, and an Inkadinkado stamp. Once I receive my new ribbon in the mail, I'll be replacing the yellow strip. I'm so excited! I made this card for a sketch challenge on SCS.

Clean and Simple Blank Inside

The bird stamp comes from Inkadinkado. All I did was take a cream colored card stock, stamp him in brown, and chalk brown around the edges. I thought the sky blue made it pop. Chocolate brown satin ribbon finished the look, but now I think maybe I should have gone without the ribbon and just put a branch.


I've wanted to start a blog for quite a while now and finally decided to sit down and do it. Originally I was just going to make this a blog on the cards I make, but I think I'm going to incorporate scrapping as well. I only recently discovered the art of card making and now I'm hooked. So, I look forward to getting feedback and sharing with my fellow crafters!
