I do love Christmas in July, so I have 2 more cards to show you today. First up is a CAS gold & white card using Penny Black's flourish holly & ornately merry--2013 & 2014 stamps I still love.
The holly branch & sentiment were gold embossed & the panel was die cut with W&W Essentials: Tilda Cutaways. I added a couple cardstock layers for slight dimension & used gold Pico Embellisher dots on the berries. I'm entering AAA, Allsorts, VOSP in July & PBSC.
The HA Flickr group used to regularly have 90 minute scrambles which I participated in as often as possible. Today Cindy is reviving the challenge with Scramble 162 with the theme to make a long card. You have until noon PT on 7/19 to join in. I continued with Christmas in July & made a one layer emboss resist card.
The HA stamp set is Happy Holly Days--a prize I won long ago in a Scramble. I gold embossed the holly branch & sentiment on a 6 1/2 x 3 1/2 white card. Then I blended Evergreen Bough Distress Ink letting it fade out to white. I added some little water spots & blotted with a paper towel. They didn't show up enough, so I splattered some gold perfect pearls mixed with water--beautiful sheen in person.
Christmas Red Stickles were added to the berries. It's funny how long cards usually take me to finish & yet the ones I make for Scrambles are often some of my favorites. I'm entering ABNH, a2z Scrapbooking & Stamplorations CAS challenge.
My last card is for Altenew's July Inspiration Challenge. I wanted to try again stamping Majestic Bloom--a flower with 4 layers. I used Classic Kraft for the outline image, so you really can't see it. The other layers are Sweet Blush, Pale Peony & Berry Sorbet. For some reason I was able to line up the layers pretty easily, so guess practice does help--haha!
The center & little leafy branches were stamped in Summer Sunrise & the sentiment from Painted Greetings was stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn. I lightly brushed the bottom & right edges with Summer Sunrise. I die cut the PTI rectangle of little holes & then used the Altenew Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die--love the look! The mats are Berry Sorbet & Summer Sunrise cardstock & I added a few sequins for embellishment. I'm also entering PB&M, Stamping Sensations & Die Cut Divas.
