So Suzy Stamps~ Christmas in July!

Good morning crafty Friends, it's time for a blog hop and new challenge over at

This month's Challenge is 


I made 2 new cards with this adorable release! Both using watercolors and different Christmas trees. 

The first card I used  Fancy Swirl Christmas Tree.
I stamped the image onto 110lb Watercolor CS with Versamark Ink and embossed with White Detail EP from Recollections. Then I added Red Watercolor across for the background and stamped the Holiday Wishes sentiment in Staz On Black ink. Layered this CS onto red and black CS and finished with Gingham black ribbon from So Suzy Stamps and rhinestones from my stash.  

Next up, I used the Delicious Coffee Christmas Tree and used the same embossing and watercolor technique as the first card but with brown. 
The sentiment is Lots of Coffee. How perfect is this New Coffee Tree and Sentiment stamp? Just perfect for that Java Lover! And lets talk about that adorable Coffee Beans ribbon!! Love it! Finished with A button from my stash and some Dark Chocolate Liquid Pearls. Layered the image layer onto Chocolate and Beige CS from Recollections. 

There some Cute and Simple cards that are so easy to do with a little embossing and watercoloring!

Don't forget today there is FREE SHIPPING- INCLUDING INTERNATIONAL at  
so get a shoppin'! :o)

Happy Craftin' and Shoppin'!

Fab cards, Amy! The thing I love about a Christmas in July challenge is folks come at it from a different mindset and think a little outside of the box. I would never have thought of using the stamp like you did for your coffee card if it was November! Love that idea for a coffee lover!! So creative! Hugs, Cathy
