Sunny Challenge 83/13

July 7, 2013

This week’s challenge has again been set by Vicky.  She supplied a sketch and wants us to make a Christmas in July card.

You may have noticed that there are no Christmas or Holiday stamp sets or accessories in the new Stampin’ Up! catalogue, however, a few sets have carried over, even though they are not listed.  So if you are a little stumped for what to use at the moment, you might like to check out the carry over list or try using Lovely as a Tree like me.

045I embossed Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Night of Navy card.  I stamped the image onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink, covered the image panel with Versamark and embossed using a combination of Heat & Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamonds.  I’m not sure that you can see how gorgeous this looks but believe me it is very dazzling.  The image panel is attached to Night of Navy card and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and punched the greeting using the Extra Large Oval Punch. 046 I attached the greeting to a Decorative Label cut from Night of Navy card before attaching to the card front slightly over the image panel using dimensionals.

I stamped  the single tree from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set using Night of Navy ink onto the left hand side of Whisper White card.  I stamped another of the greetings from the More Merry Messages stamp set onto the same piece of Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.  The Whisper White card is attached inside the Night of Navy card.

050This is a large card, 5-1/2″ square, so it will need to be hand delivered.

For more inspiration visit Sunny Challenges and Creations and see what the design team has created.  Once you have made your card, 3d item or scrap page, pop back and add it to Mr. Linky.  We know that you are all busy but we love seeing your creations.

Bye for now, Kris.
