Christmas in July

This week on the Outlines Rubber Stamps Challenge Blog, we are celebrating Christmas in July. It is never too early to get a jump start on all of those Christmas projects, so why not play along this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Outlines.

I chose to work with the beautiful image from Outlines called "Angels" (G-996). I stamped the image with Marvy Black dye ink onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers, and did some sparkly white highlights around the wings and the word "Joy" with Moonlight Smooch. I sponged around the image panel with some Adirondack Latte dye ink. I then stamped the image again, colored and cut, so that I could give some dimension to one of the angels and a star.

Patterned paper from Hot Off the Press, black cardstock, and gold cardstock provide the frames and panels for this card. Sheer gold ribbon, and a golden star brad put the finishing touches on this card.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas on the blogs of the design team. Make sure you visit for some more holiday inspiration:
