Christmas In July
These are my Christmas in July cards. I'll try to describe them as best I can. All stamps and card stock are Stampin' Up. Inks are Stampin' Up, StazOn, and Ranger, acrylic paint daubers are Ranger Adirondack, alcohol inks are Ranger, embossing folders are Cuttlebug, and dies are Nestabilities. The technique on the third card is Transparent Opalites from Technique Junkies June/July 2007 newsletter. The corners on that card and card 9 are punched with a Fiskars Corner Squeeze Punch. I'm not sure what the technique is called for cards 4 and 5. The image is stamped with StazOn ink on an acetate sheet. Then the sheet is turned over and alcohol inks are applied to the back of the sheet. Aluminum foil is wrapped around the card stock and embossed. Then the acetate sheet is mounted on the aluminum foil with brads. The backgrounds for cards 6-9 is Bingo Blast from Technique Junkies April/May 2009 newsletter. For this fun technique I used acrylic paint daubers which are spritzed with water and then "banged" onto card stock. Cards 2, 6, 8, and 9 the main image is sponged with Ranger Adirondack dye inks. Cards 1, 2, and 7 are cut with Nestabilities dies. Hope you enjoy the cards. I'm sorry it's been so long between postings. All I can say is it's been a busy summer. I have quite a few cards I want to post but that's for another day. Hope you are enjoying summer. If you have questions, please leave a comment with your Email and I'll get back to you. Thank-you for stopping by!
