Christmas in August!!!


What a fun Sunday afternoon...I stamped till I couldn't stand any more!!!! I have had a sheet of Penny Black Christmas stickers for a while and finally decided to make a few cards. Whisper White was used for all the base cards and most of the stickers were matted with black and real red.
A variety of Merry Christmas sentiment stamps were used....Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up!, Little Paper Shop, and Stampendous.
I think the penguin card is my favorite....Martha Stewart's new Snowflake Border punch was used at the bottom and a felt snowflake finishes it off.

The ribbons are all from Stampin Up!, May Arts, and Hobby Lobby and I used up some of my Stampin Up dp scraps from last year!!. The details on this set include a white felt snowflake with a rhinestone center, white pearls, and silver pearls.


Stampin Up's new flocked Christmas paper was used on the reindeer card and a row of silver pearls finish off the one on the right.
Tomorrow I will use up more of my scraps to make some Christmas card sets for my church to sell at the Christmas bazaar in October.
Thanks for visiting today....have a great Sunday evening!!!
