• Christmas In July | Watercolor Poinsettia

    July 17, 2018
    Watercolor Poinsettia. Stamps from Studio Katia. Card by Svitlana Shayevich.

    Summer got really cruel now. I dislike summer a lot and literally live through it. One thing that makes it easier to survive is Christmas in July. Christmas is my favorite topic in cardmaking (as it is for many of you I believe). Christmas cards in July make me somehow cooler. Also it’s a signal that “real” holiday cardmaking should be started slowly so I have enough cards when it’s time to send them out and don’t stress myself during holiday times.

    Sharing my very first holiday card of this year.

    Altenew Inspiration Challenge. Card by Svitlana Shayevich. To The Moon, Build-A-Flower Magnolia Stamp Sets.

    This month I’m hosting the Altenew July 2018 Inspiration Challenge inviting our readers to play with one of my favorite color schemes of blues and gray. For the inspiration I chose a picture of The Cathedral of St. Patrick through Rockefeller Center’s Atlas statue in NYC.

    For my card I decided to use To The Moon Stamp Set and Build-A-Flower: Magnolia. Those two look wonderful together and in this color combo.
