2022 Christmas In July | Card 1

Simon Says Stamp | Layered Cosmos Stencil

Hi everyone!

It’s time for Christmas in July! Throughout the month I’ll be sharing a few Christmas cards to help you get a head start on your Christmas card-making!

I know that it’s important to be able to use the crafty supplies you already have, so for this card, I decided to take a non-Christmas stamp set (called Happy Camper by Pawsome Stamps) and try to see if I could make it into something Christmas-y by using traditional Christmas colors or adding just one or two holiday elements.

I colored the images using traditional green and red, then made the bear’s sleeping cap into a Santa hat!

I set the entire scene on a snowy hill and added a few snowflake die cuts to complete the scene.

I added a Christmas sentiment and put a bit of glitter on the snowy hill for some sparkle.

I love finding ways to use my stamps for more occasions than maybe what is most obvious!

Have you looked through your crafty stash to see what you might have that you could turn into a Christmas card just by adding in a snowflake, or some holly, or a santa hat?

Later this month I’ll have another card where I did something similar… I can’t wait to share it with you!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
