Hello, and welcome to the July Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! This month we are celebrating Christmas in July. I created my card by layering a pretty kraft snowflake patterned paper from American Crafts Noel 6x6 paper pad onto my white A2 card base. I then die cut a hillside with white cardstock and the Drifting Stitched Border die from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the hillside panel using My Favorite Things Cozy Winter Wishes stamp set and Memento tuxedo black ink. I popped the panel up using some 3M foam tape and adhered it to the card panel. I then stamped, colored, and fussy cut the house, tree, and snowman images from the same My Favorite Things stamp set and adhered them to my card. Love how adorably this little winter scene came together.
We just got a new coffee shop here in our little town, and since it's ridiculously hot (triple digits today) I had to try an iced coffee. This is the iced Colorado Mocha from Ziggi's coffee, and it definitely hit the spot while I was out running my errands. Now be sure to head over to Debra's blog and see what fun she created for us this month!

Happy Saturday! Today's card was created for the latest Freshly Made Sketches card challenge. To create my card I started by stamping the adorable Santa and sentiment from My Favorite Things Jingle All The Way stamp set onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock. I colored the image using my alcohol markers. I die cut the panel down using a layering stitched rectangle die from Paper Rose. Using papers from the American Crafts Jolly 6x6 paper pad I die cut another panel using the same Paper Rose die. I then a 2" strip using more of the patterned paper and edged it with some red cardstock that I die cut using My Favorite Things Fine Finish Edge die. I popped the focal panel up off of the card using 3M foam tape and then added the gifts and tree that I stamped, colored, and fussy cut using the same stamp set. I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in white blizzard to the tree, gift bows, and Santa's hat and beard for a finishing touch. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Hello and happy July! I cannot believe the year is already half over. This month at Send A Smile 4 Kids we are having Christmas in July. To create my card I started layering some dark navy cardstock directly onto my card base. Then I die cut the snow globe and sloped hillside using My Favorite Things Snow Globe die set. I stamped the snow on the background using Papertrey Ink's Winter Snow Globe stamp set with Versamark ink. I heat set it using Ranger fine white detail embossing powder, and then inked the background with Stampin' UP's bashful blue ink. I adhered the background hillside that I die cut using the same MFT die. I then stamped the trees and skiing penguin using the My Favorite Things Snow Globe Singles stamp and die set. I colored the images using my Copic markers. I adhered them directly to the snow globe panel. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto the bottom portion of the snow globe and heat set that using more Ranger white embossing powder. I popped the snow globe up off of the card using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I finished this card by adding some Nuvo white blizzard glitter drops to the trees and snow drift and some blue 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
