Stay Calm, It's Christmas In July

Good morning and happy Wednesday. Today I'm over at the Ink Art Designs Stamping Playground with one of my favourite themes, Christmas in July. I've made a couple of fun cards and matching envelopes.

I received these fab Katzelkraft stamps from Dot on Monday, and my post was due today, so I knew I had to stamp fast lol.

I made the envelopes first, these are cards that I will be hand-delivering so there's no need for a real stamp. I think Sherlock looks very sweet as an angel.

I stamped him on my stamping platform and left him in place while I coloured him with my Prisma pencils. I love Prisma's on kraft card. When I'd done I re-stamped to add the detail back.

And these are the cards. The footprints stamp is a Visible Image one that was in Craft Stamper years ago.

I've added a few sequins and some snow - real of course!

You can find lots of Katzelkraft and other fabulous stamps here in Dot's store.

I'm entering my cards into the ABC Christmas challenge where this month N stands for No Fuss

Have a great day whatever you're are doing, and thanks very much for looking x

  3. These are fabulous! I love the way you used the Katzelkraft stamps. The matching envelopes are awesome, too. Thanks for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge!

  4. I just love these cards Sue, they really have made me smile! My favourite has to be the little 'Sherlock' character although he does look adorable as an angel too!

    We did have lots of good times spending Christmas in Oz in July, although eating turkey around the pool never seemed quite right!

    Hugs, Anne xx

  5. Love, love, love these.
    That Sherlock character is just adorable.

    Have a Happy Friday and a great weekend.

    All the best Jan

  6. I have always loved these stamps by Katzelkraft stamps. They're so fun! I need to get me some!!

  7. Hi Sue, loving your cards but they don't make me feel calm at all Lol! I starting making C. cards but then got distracted still it is only July !!!! Happy creative week, Angela xXx

  8. I have trouble getting in a Christmassy mood before December 15th!! But these completely delighted me when I spotted them over at "the other place". I just love how the coloured images look against the kraft, and then of course there's that snowy spatter - brilliant!
