OSAT Blog Hop - Christmas in July
July 09, 2015
Hello, and welcome back! Today I am joining in a blog hop for the One Stamp At a Time group, with a theme of Christmas in July. Since it has been so unseasonably cool here in Chicago-land, it's not hard to get into the mood for creating cold-weather projects! I'm ready for some heat around here.
I have a Christmas card, and a set of tags to share with you. I used the White Christmas stamp set, and also the Festival of Trees set for the "To From" greeting on the back of the tags.
I stamped the images in Black Stazon ink, and then watercolored them with several of the In Colors and some additional neutrals. Love how the colors are subtle, and blend together. Watermelon Wonder is definitely my new favorite color!
I used both the silver sequins from the metallic pack and also from the silver sequin trim. And, the beautiful Watermelon Wonder paper has a clear embossed dot pattern to it. I think this is going to become my favorite new designer paper!
On to the tags. These were also stamped in Black Stazon ink on White Shimmer Cardstock and water colored. I selectively inked the longer greetings to add to the tags.
I used some of the new Dotted Lace Trim and some retired 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon for the tops of the tags.
I included some gift packaging for this set in the form of the Sketched Dots Tag A Bag Gift Bags.
Well, that is all for today! You'll want to check out the next stop on the hop by clicking the link below to get to Lori Mueller. Thanks for stopping by.
