CHRISTMAS WINDOW – Christmas in July

06.19.19 Xmas July WindowOur final card for Christmas in July is a Christmas window scene.  From my archives, I pulled one of my favorite sets – “Happy Scenes.”  This simple winter scene, stamped in Shaded Spruce is embellished with a die-cut gold deer from “Detailed Deer Dies.”  The window and flower box are die cut with Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  There will be several wood patterns die-cut for you.  The window box is filled with assorted die-cut greenery which really pops with Wink of Stella.  “merryis die-cut on Cherry Cobbler and “Christmas” is stamped, die cut and shadowed with a Cherry Cobbler frame.  2 small flowers embellished with rhinestones provide extra sparkle. 

So, you may be asking yourself “and what is Rosemary going to do to help me create this card?”  Answer:  The Shaded Spruce, Mint Macaron, and Whisper White cs has already been cut.  The goal is to have the window frames and window boxes, “merry”, flowers, greenery and gold deer die-cut for you.  “Christmas” will be stamped and die cut with the frame and coordinating shadow frame.  This does not leave too much for you to do other than adhere the pieces and hum Christmas Carols. 

As I’m sure you’ve read in the previous posts, Christmas In July will be held on Thursday July 18 from 12N to 7 PM and on Saturday July 20 from 9AM to 4 PM.  All materials, tools and creativity will be provided along with drinks and a snack of some type.  We will have as much pre-done for you as we can possibly do. BUT  if we don’t know what day you are coming, or which cards you wish to make, we can’t prep.  Thank you to those of you who have already responded with your card wishes.  Regarding cost, a Wink of Stella Brush has been included in the price.  You can do any combination of cards in multiples of 4.  4 cards is priced at $14, 8 cards is 23, 12 cards is $32, 16 cards is $41, etc.  Each additional 4 cards is $9.  Whew – I hate high finance.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR CHRISTMAS IN JULY CARD WISHES!

PEACE – Christmas in July

06.19.19 Xmas July PeaceAt Christmas time, many people wish for the gift of PEACE.  This simple gold and white card with a wintry tree, snowy background, birds and a small deer reflects PEACE.  Thoughtful Branches” is the retired die set used for our winter tree.  The gold deer comes from the current “Detailed Deer Dies” and the little birds from the retired “Swirly Bird” set.  The Cherry Cobbler card card base and layers have eye-catching opposing rounded corners.  The Detailed Trio Punch allows crafters to easily and quickly round corners. The Softly Falling embossing folder leaves snowflakes tumbling from the sky,  Sparkle Glimmer Paper provides snowy ground and the sparkling tree.  Gold and Cherry Cobbler birds embellish this peaceful setting.  I must admit this is one of my favorite holiday cards.

This picturesque yet easy to make card will have all the pieces die cut for you. The card stock has been cut, and die cutting the individual pieces is next up on my agenda. Again, like the other cards we have seen, you will simply adhere the pieces and presto – your card will be similar to the sample seen above.

So when can you make this card?  The dates for this annual Stamp Camp are July 18 & 20 – Thursday July 18 from 12 N – 7 PM and Saturday July 20 from 9 AM – 4 PM.  I  need a firm count on how many you wish to do of each card. The cost for Christmas in July includes your very own brand new Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for your use during this Stamp Camp and then take home – an $8 value!  As always, the cost includes all supplies, tools and adhesive.  Water and soda are in the fridge to keep you hydrated, and a snack to keep you from starving.  You are welcome to bring a snack for yourself or something to share.
