CiJ Day 5 Who needs Snow?

Hello again,

I'm back again with another card for this weeks 7th Annual Christmas in July Challenge with the lovely ladies at Catch the Bug and Bugaboo Stamps, todays Challenge is an image challenge with the request to make it funny which you can see below.


I took my inspiration from the scene and created my own scene for Trop Santa Scuba (not yet in the new store) and also used the colours on Santa's umbrella to colour him in. I added a typed sentiment to my card suitable for those of us who celebrate Christmas in Summer time (ho ho ho, who needs snow) Although since I have to be cold right now, snow would be nice. Not too sure why the photo seems a little foggy, it is much brighter in life, I may try another photo later, maybe just the winter sun.

Here is my card:- (edit- new photo a bit better than the other)

What I used:-
White 5x7" (12.6x17.8cm) card blank
Bugaboo Trop Santa Scuba image
Merci patterned papers (Big W for those in Aus)
Kaisercraft Sandy Toes Paper
Scraps from my box
Black fine line pen

CiJ Day 3- Wrap it Up

Hello Again,

I'm Still playing catch up with the current week long Christmas in July Event over at Bugaboo Stamps Blog Catch the Bug today brings me to the Wrap it Up challenge to make a gift tag, wrap, gift bag etc. I have made a wine bottle tag featuring Ruby Xmas Drink which hasn't yet been added to Jodie's new store. I made a template for making Wine Bottle tags out of a cereal box and wrote all the measurements on it to save time, but then had a very large mistake which actually caused me to toss the whole thing out before I cut Ruby out and used her for the one you see below.... lets just say that I know what crushing bling in my Cuttlebug sounds like and what it does to the card and paper....


Here is my wine bottle tag:-


What I used:-
Amethyst AC Card
Sugar and Spice 'Jewel' Paper (Spotlight for those in Aus)
MFT Merry Christmas Die
MFT BB Penguins in Paradise Cheers stamp
Bling from stash
White card stock
Faber Castell Pencils
Ruby Xmas Drink from Bugaboo Stamps

Long time no see, I managed to pick up a lurgy last time I was in Sydney and haven't really gotten on to the computer as much as normal, but I have made a few cards between my last post in June and the newest Design Team challenge which I will add over the next few weeks as the cards are received.

Bugaboo Stamps is having their 7th Annual Christmas in July Challenge this week and as I haven't made any Christmas cards since May it has given me a nudge to join in again this year... I'm running a bit behind at the minute and will have several posts one after the other in an effort to catch up...

Challenge for Day one of Bugaboo's Christmas in July

I have used a double sided piece of paper and used both sides, something I rarely do, to make this card which will likely head for my cousin and her two young girls. With the featured image from Bugaboo called Christmas Troll

Don’t forget to stop by my team mates blogs to check out some more fabulous inspirational projects.
I am using an image provided by Sasayaki Glitter called Balloon Hedgehog, I grabbed a cut piece of stripy paper and coloured my image with a focus on those colours (or so I thought ;-)) Colouring in front of the TV I made one small mistake with the colours, one balloon is far more red than pink…. I grabbed some snippets from my overflowing box and made up a simple background with blue and green cutting out the various elements and adding them on popping the main image up on foam tape. A layer of some pink card also from the snippets box and a file tab cut from a snippet of white for the sentiment.
Here is my card:-
