"Christmas in July" and a touch of Hawaii!

Share |
Okay, my camera is acting up a bit and therefore the pictures are pretty dark (sorry about that) but here are 4 of the 5 cards we'll be doing tonight for the 1st of this summer's Christmas Card camps! I still have spots available, so for more information please visit my Classes page and RSVP if you want to come. If you can't make this class, then the next "Xmas in July" card camp will be on Wednesday July 25 where we'll make 5 completely different cards.

Card #1 was CASE'd from Helayne's holiday card to me last year and uses "The Snowflake Spot" & "Warm Words" in Close to Cocoa and Tempting Turquoise, with some glitter and hardware added.

Card #2 was based on Sherri Barron's card using the new "Year After Year" set, the "See You Around" jumbo wheel, so paper piercing and a rhinestone brad.

Card #3 uses my favourite "Peaceful Wishes" and was based on Brenda Wilson's card on SCS. I love doing the tone-on-tone metallic embossing on same colour cardstock like what I did with the gold -- it's always so cool!

I can't recall where the inspiration for the 4th card came from, but it uses 2 of the new "In Color"s for this year: Wild Wasabi & Purely Pomegrates with the "Baroque Motifs" set, some white shimmer paper and cute little half-back pearls from the "Pretties" kit. I also used the new "Basic Gray ink for the sentiment -- it's less harsh then using black and is so deep & rich!

Last night I had an "Aloha Hawaii" evening for some of the local demos on my team who wanted to know more about the cool Incentive trip that SU has us working towards. If you want to laugh at me in my leis and grass skirt -- you just go right ahead, everyone else did! :)

If you'd ever like more info about becoming a demonstrator yourself, please don't hesitate to ask. As far as I'm concerned, I think I have just about the best job in the world and I'd love to share more about it with you.

Happy Stamping!

Oh man! That new Christmas present stamp is one of my favourites out of the ENTIRE catty. It caught my eye immediately. Sorry I didn't get there. Stupid husband wanting to spend time with me!

July 25th huh? Gonna have to try for that one.
Love these cards - I think Purely Pom. and Wild Wasabi will be this year's Christmas colours.. don't you?

Thanks for the comment on my blog.. Life's been a bit sad because of such morons.. but anyway.. what can you do, right? I'm glad I have nice friends (for the most part)..
