Snowflake Wishes Card Samples

Snowflake Wishes Card Samples

Did you ever stop to think where Christmas in July originated? According to a quick Google search, it found its start in 1933 at an all-girls summer camp in Brevard, North Carolina. They hosted a Christmas in July celebration complete with carolers, a Christmas tree, fake snow, a gift exchange and even a visit from Santa. And it's now morphed in to a month-long celebration with thoughts of escaping the heat! I'm following suit and celebrating Christmas in July on my blog this month. Today, I feature Stampin' Up!'s Snowflake Wishes stamp set and So Many Snowflake Dies. Find the stamp set on page 90 of the Annual Catalog and the dies on page...

Sunny Sentiments Meets Alcohol Ink

Sunny Sentiments Meets Alcohol Ink

Have you seen Stampin' Up!'s new Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper? It's been a very popular item since the catalog went live early May. The images just wow. I tried a technique that can offer the same look. (Yes, I'm a little late to the party. Lots of other videos and card samples showcase the alcohol ink technique.) But I had to try to for myself. I paired the designs with Stampin' Up!'s Sunny Sentiments stamp set. So excited to share all the finished cards! This post features four of the cards I created with the set and technique.
