Christmas in July - Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Welcome to the Team Stamp It Christmas In July Blog Hop. My name is Kathi Desmarais and I am an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin' Up! Thank you for joining us today for what should be a very inspirational stampin' journey through the Team Stamp It Christmas In July blogs. To continue on your journey through our projects, simply use the BLOG HOPPERS links below.

It's the middle of summer so we really don't want to think about that white stuff and the cold. We get that. BUT, card makers like to start researching for their inspiration early so they can get their supplies and start planning for their holiday cards. Our blog hop is a great place to start!

My card today is a traditional card using the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper along with the Mistletoe Season stamp set.

I added some gold accents to the card to add some elegance to it, like the oval layer behind the sentiment, the Metallic Edge Ribbon under the oval and Gold Metallic thread in between the ovals.

I also used Gold Embossing Powder for the sentiment which seem to tie all of the gold accents together.

I popped out the layers using dimensionals to pop the oval out from the card.

Then to finish I added a few red rhinestones to the pointsettias on the paper.

Thank you again for taking this journey through our blog hop. Congratulations to Julie Schoonover, the winner of the June giveaway.

Happy Mother's Day

You wouldn't be here without her. You are the person that you are because of her. Make her feel special today. She's the only one that you have.

This card was designed with her in mind. She's a little rough around the edges, like the sponged grooves on the wall in the background, but soft and beautiful like the butterfly. She's a little girly, like the glittery butterfly accent, and she's a bit crazy, like the background stamps on the wall.

I chose yellow for this one, but if you scroll down, you'll see it in pink and in purple as well. I also did an alternate in case you wanted to see it for a friend instead of your Mom.

Funny thing thing about this card. I designed it to use in my card class, which was the same day that the Stampin' Up! retirement list was published. Dontcha know that just about everything I used for this card is retiring! Stamp sets, embossing folder, even some of the ink colors and the doilies! If you really like this card, you should order the stamps now. They will only be available until May 26th to order.

I hope you like this card (and it's alternates). Please leave me a message below to let me know, or just to say "Hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, Happy Mother's Day, and Happy Stampin!
