Christmas in July with Technique Junkies Part 3

Hello Everyone,
Today is my third post for the Christmas in July challenge with Technique Junkies.  All the projects are on the Facebook group page.  My card uses a lighthearted stamp and traditional Christmas colors: red and green.

Wrought Iron Panel 

I stamped the cat with black ink and wrought iron panel with red.  Added a few layers and some ribbon to complete.

Pretty funny!   So glad you stopped by.  See you next time.  Have a great day.

Butterfly Cut Outs

Hello Friends,
I have two cards to share today.  Both feature butterfly die cuts. 

Firstly,  layer the small rectangle of decorative paper with the coordinating CS.  Then die cut the butterflies.  Complete the card by covering card base with a second decorative paper.  Add the piece with the butterfly die cuts, add pearls and ribbon. Done.  This is a great design to show off all those pretty decorative papers we all have.

This card is slightly different: used a larger butterfly and different papers.

Great for any occasion.  This could even be used for a sympathy card. 

So glad you stopped by today.  Hope you are having a nice day and some card making was on your schedule today.

Today, I have the fastest Christmas Card ever! This is a card I made for the Christmas in July Challenge with Technique Junkies
If you have lots of cards to make, this could be right up your alley.  Simply stamp the ornament and sentiment, tie bow, and done!  I did two layers, but this could also be a one layer card.

Floral Quick Card

Hello Everyone!
Today, I wanted to share this quick floral card.

Stamp with black pigment ink and heat emboss with black powder on watercolor paper.  Watercolor the flowers and stems.  You can be messy, it adds to the charm.  I used a wet brush and picked up ink to do the watercoloring.

Just added one layer of green on a white card base.  Nice CAS card.

See you next time.
