Third Thursdays Blog Hop - Christmas in July


Welcome to the 3rd Thursday's Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Christmas in July! If you follow my blog you will have seen the other
Christmas projects I have posted. This time I am sharing a card I made using the Christmas Scotties Bundle. This bundle includes the Scottie Dog Punch & the Christmas Scottie stamp set. Stampin' Up!s Punch bundles are so affordable. And they make some of the cutest projects. I did use a couple of retired stamp sets in this project to get the look that I wanted. My Stamparatus was used to get the correct depth of color I wanted. I think I stamped the scottie dog 3 times to get the right coverage. It was also useful in stamping the Christmas Tree. I used a Blending Brush and Balmy Blue Ink to create the sky. The snowflakes have been heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I used Real Red Ink on the sentiment, the dogs bow & the plaid horizontal strip. The card front is embossed with the Whimsical Trees 3D Embossing Folder. The card base is Basic White Thick Cardstock. All of the layers have been matted on Real Red Cardstock. I used the Real Red Enamel Pearlized Effects for the ornaments. I colored some Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Real Red Dark Stampin' Blends Marker. 

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas in July project. Now I will send you to Angie's blog. I can't wait to see her project.
