Christmas In July | Watercolor Poinsettia

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.

Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017 – Day 10

12 Tag of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017 . Merry and Bight tag by @craftwalks

I’m honored today to guest design at Ellen Hutson’s annual 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist. Today is Day 10 and the challenge is color theme – Merry and BRIGHT!I’m usually pretty traditional when it comes to holiday projects. It’s either red and greens, silver and blue or neutral kraft, brown and white. And it was very interesting for me to get out of my comfort zone and make something so bright in not so traditional colors.

Altenew | Stretching Night Before Christmas Set

Stretch your Altenew Night Before Christmas Set. Clean and simple one-layer card by @craftwalks

I want to share very simple one layer card using Altenew Night Before Christmas Stamp Set.  This set has two pretty big trees with sentiments inside. Which themselves already have a ready Christmas card. So  you can simply stamp a tree and call it a card.

But today I want to show how you can stretch this set a bit. The top and sides of there trees totally can work as separate one. And for my card I used them in this role.
