Merry Christmas in July!

I had a Christmas in July class today. It is always so much fun coming up with new designs for my card classes - especially Christmas cards! I think my favorite card we did today was this one using the new Punch pals set. I just LOVE this little penguin!

The background looks so pretty in real life because we used glossy card stock with Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the snowflakes so it is sooo sparkly! Then we sponged over the top of the embossed snowflakes with Bashful Blue and Lovely Lilac ink. This is the first card I've created with this set...can't wait to make more!

Also, among the other 12 cards we did today were a cute pocket card using one of my very first Stampin' Up! sets ~ Frosty and a floating tag card using Festive Favorites. If you missed this class, I'm sure I'll be having several more Christmas card events before the Holidays. Contact me today and we can set one up for you and your friends.

Stamps: Punch Pals, Bold Snowflake wheel

Card Stock: Sage Shadow, Glossy White, Lovely Lilac & Bashful Blue

Ink: White Craft, Black Stazon, Sage Shadow, Bashful Blue

Accessories: Iridescent Ice EP, Tag & Window Word punches, water color pencils, vintage Brads & Blue gingham ribbon

I love Christmastime, but I am thankful that it is only July...this summer is already flying by way too quickly! Plus I love the weather in July way more than I do Michigan in December!
