Christmas in July at LCD\CV

It is so very hot outside here in Georgia!  Nothing more delightful than thinking about Christmas and the chilly weather, decorating fun, and baked goods.  Wait, let's not think about baked goods right now....

This beautiful Christmas stamp makes a nice centerpiece for a simple card.  I love his hat!!  Here is a closeup.

I think I am going to stay inside today and make some more of these cards.  I will be happy I did when things get busy in December!

LEGO card

All of the kids in my family love LEGOs!  I found this idea on the internet here and there are several different versions around.  It was fun to make and it was quite a hit with my nephew.

Happy Birthday Jonas!

Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda (LCD\CV) are hosting Skellie-Fest this month.  Here is my Guest Designer Submission, titled 'Juggling Skeleton'.  Why wait until Halloween to celebrate the spooky stuff?

Here are the steps:

I copied the stamped image onto card stock and then glued on some torn book pages.  Next, I treated the skeleton with some Distress Glaze to keep it from getting too much ink color on it.

I inked the entire piece using 'Twisted Citron' Distress Ink.  I then laid the stencil on top and inked again with 'Wilted Violet' Distress Ink.  I love this wavy line stencil!

I embellished the project using circles punched from leftovers from this project and a pre-printed 'Trick or Treat' card I had in my stash....

Here are the LCD\CV products I used:
