Stampendous Saturday: Christmas in July


Can you believe it's Saturday again?  Not only that, but we've reached the very end of July!  Rather than a tutorial today, I'm just sharing a card I made for the gorgeous new Stampendous catalog.  And this one actually made it in there, lol!

This newly released Cling Jumbo Snowfall Pair is such an adorable stamp, isn't it?  I think the huge size of these jumbo stamps is amazing.  This card base measures 5 1/2" square, so you can tell how ginormous those snowmen are.  I colored them with Copics and added a bit of felt ric rac and fused pearls on the side.  The mat for my image panel is actually the reverse side of the snowflake patterned paper I used.  I think this purple and blue color combo is sensational for winter cards!

Now, for the weekly fun!  This week I'm giving you the chance to WIN this set, with the darling snowmen and the gorgeous border of swirling snowflakes:

Love the card! They are so cute! I love the color combo too. I haven't been happy with the greens I see lately so maybe this time I will try a combo like this - but could I do this justice? Thanks for sharing this cool combo in this hot weather we have been having!
