Christmas in July!

Well, it's been another day of me being Taxi Mom to teenagers, so it's been another day of no stamping time! No worries, though -- I have this card to share with you! And it's a good thing, too, because I could use a little cold weather around here! We've had temps in the 90's all week, so it's time for a little Christmas in July! This is one of the cards I made for Jen del Muro when I was the Guest Designer for i{heart}2stamp back in December. I can show it to you now! I've been hanging on to it, because I liked it so much -- have you ever done that?

I love this set, Got Snow?, from Gina K. Designs. The images are so sweet! I'm a big fan of snowmen, so I purchased this set as soon as it came out. I watercolored the images with SU! inks, and I used BasicGrey Figgy paper.

I embossed the olive panel with the Cuttlebug Spots & Dots embossing folder, and I tied the ribbon through two Jumbo Eyelets. I added Stardust Stickles to the snow, and I placed three snowflake eyelets randomly on the design. I sponged the edges of the image panel and sentiment with Soft Sky ink, and I mounted the panels on dimensionals and pop dots.

You know, just looking at this card makes me feel cooler! Tomorrow is going to be a good day -- I have nowhere to go, so I'm gonna do some stamping! I have a couple more ideas for some Christmas in July projects, so I hope you'll stop by to see them! Stay cool, and have a great day! Thanks for visiting today! :)
