Christmas in July Blog Hop

Hi everyone - as promised here is the Paper Wings sponsored blog hop for Christmas in July featuring stamps from The Angel Company. Here are my two cards.


This darling little tree is from the set Jingle Jolly. I colored the pot with Copic markers and the star and ornaments were embellished with stardust pens. Paper is from the Reese soar with it collection. I stamped the sentiment panel and attached it with glue dots after bending it a bit to make it bow. Green buttons are from my stash and I added a bit of jute twine to match the kraft cardstock. Black cardstock used to layer the panels.

Next up is a very clean and simple one.
Goose and sentiment are from the Cuddly Christmas set. I had a lot of fun coloring this little guy with Copic markers. I used a white gel pen to highlight the snow flakes in his muffler. Red grosgrain ribbon used in the back and the main panel is popped up using foam tape. I didn't want to take away from this cute little guy, so I kept this one clean.

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think!



Please check out the following blogs to see what the rest of the talented Angels came up with!
