Christmas In July Cards

 Since it is July I thought I would make some Christmas in July cards. Can never start too early, right? Plus scrapbook.com is celebrating all month long with free giveaways and sales.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

On my first card, I used the smallest tree in the Nested Fir Trees Die Set to cut out my trees. These dies have been out of stock for a while now and are FINALLY back in stock so make sure you hurry and get yourself some before they are gone again. I cut them out using three different papers from the new Peppermint Patterned Paper Collection. Then using a white cardstock card front, I ran the top half through an embossing folder with a dot pattern to give it some texture.

On the bottom half where I didn't emboss it, I stamped a sentiment using one of the stamps from the Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set. I matted the white card front with the pink paper from the Peppermint Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad and adhered it to my card base. Then adhered the three trees to the top half of my card. For the center tree, I used some foam squares to raise it up. For the gold stars over the tip of the tree top, I used Pops Of Color in Glitter Gold.

For my next cards, I angled a piece of the Peppermint Patterned Paper Collection on one side of the card front and cut the extra that was hanging over the edge of the card front off. Then I cut a strip of the  Peppermint Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad and adhered it to the edge of the patterned paper, again cutting off the excess. On the white side of the card, I die cut out the words Merry & Jolly using the Christmas Block Words Die Set from the Peppermint Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad.

On the Merry card, I used the Winter Cottage Stencil to stencil in a few twigs around the sentiment using ink that matched the paper color. Added a few drops of the Pops Of Color in Glitter Snowflake and added a ribbon bow to finish it off.

On the Jolly card, I fussy cut out a few of the flowers from the Peppermint Patterned Paper Collection and adhered them to the corner of the Jolly sentiment using foam squares. Then I added a few drops of Pops Of Color in Soft Lavender.

Three easy-to-make Christmas cards using only scrapbook.com exclusive products! Which one is your favorite?

Don't forget ALL OF THIS MONTH scrapbook.com is giving free gifts with orders and lots of sales too.

I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Bathtub stamp and colored it with Copic Markers, then fussy cut it out.

Lastly, to create the bubbles pouring out of the bathtub, I used dabbed water using the end of a paint brush to create dots everywhere and then sprinkled some WOW Puff Embossing Powder. On the inside of the card, I stamped a simple Happy Birthday Stamp.

I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Life's Too Short stamp and colored it with Copic Markers.

For the water, I made some ripple lines with a few different Copic colors of blues and a really light blue to blend them in a little.
Matted the stamped image onto one of the blue cardstock from Scrapbook.com Cools Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad. Then adhered it all together using my Xyron Mega Runner.

4th of July Mixed Media Tag

It is hard to believe it is almost the 4th of July already. Seems like this year just started. So in honor of the 4th, I decided to create a 4th of July mixed media tag.

I used one of the Large Chipboard Tags from Creative Embellishments and adhered some patterned paper onto it and sanded the edges to distress it a little. Then I painted the hot air balloon from the Creative Embellishments Summer 4th of July Set 2 with a thin layer of blue and red acrylic paint. I also painted one of the Creative Embellishments Fireworks 2 with a thin layer of white acrylic paint.

I adhered the firework and hot air balloon with some flowers to the front of the tag with Xyron Mini Glue Gun. I also added one of the flairs from the Creative Embellishments Vintage Patriotic Flair Set. Lastly, I painted the Happy 4th of July sentiment from the Creative Embellishments Holiday Sentiment Word Set with white acrylic paint.

Gumball Machine Birthday Card

 Hello! Today I am sharing a cute gumball machine birthday card with you all that I made.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I first started by using the Crackerbox Stamps Gumball Machine Sm. Stamp and then colored it in with Copic Markers and fussy cutting it out. I used a clear glitter marker on the silver part of the machine to give it a metal look and glossy highlights over the glass part of the machine.

I then stamped the sentiment using the Crackerbox Stamps Blowing Good Wishes Stamp and then cutting it into a banner and added it just below the Gumball Machine. I added some fun polka dot patterned paper and die-cut out some circles to create a focal point behind the gumball machine.

Mixed Media Large Chipboard Tag

Hello! Today I am sharing a large mixed media chipboard tag.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I started with one of the Creative Embellishments Large Tags and used some Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste from The Crafter's Workshop, and The Crafter's Workshop Galaxy Stencil by using the stars and dots from it to create some texture on the tag. Then I painted the tag with The Crafter's Workshop White Gesso. Next, I sprinkled on some ColorSparx from The Crafter's Workshop in Wisteria, Turquoise, and Sepia and sprayed it with water so the powders spread over the tag. Then I dried it with a heat gun. I added a piece of corrugated cardstock and wrapped some twine around it and added some kraft paper flowers.

Then, I took the Creative Embellishments Grunge Heart Corner and painted it with white gesso and sprinkled some ColorSparx on it in Wisteria, and heat dried it. Then adhered it over the flower cluster with my Xyron Mini Multi-Stick Glue Gun. Added some pearls and stickers and then I was done.

Steampunk Masculine Father's Day Cards

Hello! Today I have a couple of masculine steampunk Father's Day cards. These would make great masculine birthday cards too, just by changing the sentiment on them.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my link and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

For the background, I used an embossing folder on brown cardstock and then rubbed some different colors of ink onto the raised areas. Then I gathered up some chipboard Gears from Creative Embellishments and pressed them into some metallic ink, some in gold and some in silver. I did the same thing with the Creative Embellishments Bicycle Chain Pieces. I also lightly added some black and patina ink to each one to give them more of an aged metal look. On the chain pieces, I added black brads to the open holes. This was a great way to use up some of the hundreds of brads that I have had laying around forever. Then I attached all the pieces to the front of each card and added a Happy Father's Day stamp from Crackerbox Stamps that I heat embossed to match each card.

Here is the silver card...

and here is the gold one...

Which one is your favorite?
