Is it too early to think about Christmas?
I hope not because I am enjoying the Christmas sets!
Here are a few from "Christmas in July":

I love the "Welcome Christmas" stamp set. It is a brand new set and comes in clear mount or wood. I cut out an oval from chipboard with my Big Shot and the Ovals Die. Then I used the oval frame instead of the top cutting plate when I embossed the cardstock with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder. That way, I had the oval in the center nice and smooth to stamp on. Shimmer Paint and a Rhinestone Jewel really gave the finishing touches to this card.

From the same 'Welcome Christmas' set, I stamped the wreath and used my 1-3/8" circle punch. The silhouette is stamped on the inside of the card.

I used a circle to make a 'mask' from a post-it note. Using a post-it note helps keep it in place. Then I just sponged around the circle mask. Notice the "Smooch Spray"? It really adds the glimmer and sparkle I was looking for.
The deer is from the 'Winter Post' stamp set.

This card and the next one is from the same stamp set, 'Winter Post'. I used the Watercolor with Markers technique that you can view in the Tutorial page.
Soft Suede and Crumb Cake inks and papers go so well together! Notice the new ribbon border punch!
