Christmas in July!


Okay, so I happen to LOVE Christmas. Like crazy love it....so much that I listen to Christmas music all year 'round whenever the mood strikes me. LOL So when I saw the Hanna Stamps Christmas in July sketch over at the Hanna Stamps forum on SCS, I knew I had to ink up some of my Winter/Christmas Rileys. :D

I found when I went looking that I didn't really have any Christmas papers. OH NO! I had used them all up on scrapbooks in previous years and since I started stamping AFTER Christmas, it never occurred to me to buy any Christmassy paper. But, after some digging, I found a lone single piece of ANCIENT 12x12 scrapbook paper. This paper might even be older than me...like at least 500 years old. So I tried to find a way to use it so you couldn't really see how old it is but you got the idea that it was wintry. hehe

What I used: Riley stamp from Hanna Stamps, Stampin' Up CS, ancient DP, flocked corner sticker, vesamark embossing pad and embossing powder, cuttlebug, nestabilities, Stickles, Memento black ink, Copic markers, some ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Awwwww so cute! That stamp is SWEET! And I love how you did the snow flakes: filing that technique away for when I get the Christmas bug. ;0)
