2014 Christmas in July #6

Today's card represents Christmas in July card number 6 created for the current Paper Smooches Sparks "Anything Goes" challenge.

I created the background circle first by cutting patterned paper from the Lily Bee Christmas Cheer pad with a Lil Inkers Stitched Mat, the snow bank from the  The Cat's Pajamas Holiday Toppers CutUps and the mat with Spellbinders Nestabilities. To create the scene from I combined two Paper Smooches stamp sets today using the tree from the Autumn Groves set and the snowman and bird from the Warm Hearts set stamped with My Favorite Things Black Licorice ink. I colored all the images with Copics and then fussy cut out. I attached to the circle, using dimensional dots underneath the bird and the snowman. I stamped the star from the Warm Hearts directly onto the card base as well as the sentiment at the bottom. After coloring the heart in the sentiment I added Doodlebug Enamel Dots to finish it up.


I'm glad to say the Warm Hearts set didn't stay in my not yet used box for long. In fact, I received it in the mail one afternoon this week and had a card completed the next day. If only I could do that with all my new stamps.


Copics: Snowman-BG70, BG0000, BG000, R11, YR01, YR12; Bird-R22, R24, Y11, Y35; Tree-W00, E81, E55, E57; Hearts-R22, R24
