Christmas in July, Part 2

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Christmas in July, Part 2

I’m so sorry I didn’t have Part 2 of my Christmas in July series for you yesterday, it was a crazy busy day and I just ran out of time 😦 but I’m back on track and I hope you like today’s projects using the Card Front Builder Thinlits, which you can add to your Starter Kit if you join Stampin’ Up! this month.

Stampin’ Up! has a really amazing joining offer for July, that includes the early release Carols of Christmas stamp set and an Essentials Gift Pack in addition to the usual savings. If you’d like more information about this offer, check out my promotions page here

Little Paper Party, Carols of Christmas, Card Front Builder Thinlits, #1

The Carols of Christmas stamp set has a coordinating set of thinlits that will die cut several images as well as create some gorgeous borders to dress up your cards. For this first sample I’ve simply stamped and die cut some of the ornaments and “strung” them on my card front using mini dimensionals.

I used a non-traditional colourway of Fresh Fig, Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide for this card, all of which are in the Eastern Palace DSP that’s layered the front.

A sentiment was stamped in Fresh Fig and die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits then layered onto a Gold Foil scalloped square and popped up with dimensionals over the strings of ornaments.

A few rhinestones dress up my ornaments and add some sparkle to this quick and easy card 🙂

My second sample uses one of the card front builder thinlits and was cut twice to create the border. The layer I used for this project is 10 x 14.3cm, which is 0.5cm smaller than the card base but you can use smaller pieces and just overlap the thinlit more to create this design on a variety of sizes. This was adhered to a piece of Gold Foil the same size and popped up on the card base with dimensionals.

A sentiment was heat embossed in gold and a few trees and the deer create a simple scene. The trees were die cut from a sheet of Be Merry DSP, and I love how it looks as though snow is falling, I can see myself using this particular piece a lot for these trees 🙂

My final sample uses the corner pieces from this thinlit set that cut out these lovely poinsettia trios. The centre of one of these corners also cuts out the stamped image and there is another framelit for the leaves.

I used the wood grain design from the Coffee Break DSP as my top layer and love the rustic feel it gives to this card. The die cutting really does all the embellishment on this card and a little swish of gold ribbon adds the “must have” sparkle I love 🙂
