Christmas in July...

This is my second post for today - scroll down or click here to check out my CASE Study post. Thanks! :)


Welcome to Day 3 of The Craft's Meow July Release Sneaky Peeks!

The Craft's Meow

We have the sweetest set to preview today by Nina.B called 'Love Dwells Here'. Lemme tell you that you really get your dollar's worth with this set as Nina has cleverly placed as many stamps as possible into this set!

The set features many sweet house images, but for my card today I wanted to give you an idea of just how versatile this set is by creating probably the 'girliest' Christmas card ever!


There's lots of shimmer here as I've used shimmer cardstock for the card base and focal point. I stamped a heart on shimmer cardstock, coloured it with a Promarker and smothered it in Glossy Accents before attaching it to the centre of those wings (oh, and be sure to let it dry thoroughly before attaching. Go on, ask me how I know that....! Yup, my lack of patience strikes again!)

Here's the full whack of that shimmer:


Now I recommend you check out the rest of the TCM DT as you'll get a idea of all of the other fabulous stamps in this set! Oooh and if you fancy winning this set yourself, then be sure to leave a comment on the TCM Blog by 9pm PST tonight!

Thanks so much for visiting this little corner of Blogland today! :)

Catch ya later!

So lovely! I love that you used shimmery paper:) I can never get good pics of it, but it looks so pretty in person. Hope you have a fabulous day!

I've fallen for that, myself. Maybe we could launch a technique of 'thumb-print-in-the glossy-accents'...?

Kelly said...

ooooh, that is a lovely card. Very feminine for Christmas!

Jennie said...
