2022 Christmas In July | Card 2

Pawsome Stamps | Tweet Birdies

Hi everyone! 

Today I’m sharing another Christmas in July card using a (primarily) non-Christmas stamp set.  This set is called “Tweet Birdies” and it is from Pawsome Stamps.  I supplemented the set with a few Christmas ornaments from the Pawsome Stamps “Beary Christmas” set, along with a Christmas sentiment from the Pawsome Stamps “Just Sentiments – Christmas” set.  All of the supplies I used are listed below.

To make this card, I stamped all the images in Copic-friendly ink and colored them with Copic Markers.  I kept this card monochromatic in blue to give it a winter feel. 

The branch I used from the “Tweet Birdies” stamp set has leaves, but since this was going to be a winter card, I simply cut those off after die cutting the branch.

I masked off a snowy hill, then used a bit of ink-blending and a few splatters to get the background to look snowy and give the card a bit of depth. 

I then added some snow to the branch and the bird house using a bit of glue and some frosty-looking glitter I had in my stash.

I arranged all the components on my card – adding in the Christmas ornaments to give it a truly Christmas feel.

And lastly, for just a bit more sparkle, I added in a few snowflake sequins and blue sequins from Pawsome Stamps.

I hope you like this project and that you’ll check out your own crafty stash to see how you might be able to combine Christmas and non-Christmas sets to get a unique look you truly love!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
