Christmas in July at Jellypark

Coffee of the Day - Mocha Mint (it just seemed appropriate for the challenge!)

Today marks a new challenge and digi release over at Jellypark Friends! I do hope you will pop by to see all of the fun projects created by the DT as well as our guest this month, Diane. prepare to be amazed! :) The challenge for this go 'round is "Christmas in July." We are also doing something else fun on the weeks that we don't have a new challenge going - Stamp Spotlight. we will be featuring a different digi image from the Jellypark store. Make sure you stop by!

I mentioned to all of you yesterday that I would be sharing another card inspired by the challenges from the Stretch Your Stamps online class. This one also comes from Day 1 - using your background stamps: technique - Stamped Elements.

I stamped my SU! woodgrain bg stamp across 3 small white tags that had first been sprayed with candy apple glimmer mist. the edges were then sponged in the same early espresso ink used for stamping. I painted my cute Jellypark kitty to look like a calico or tortiseshell. this was one of the first digis I bought from Claire, as I am such a softie when it comes to cat images!

stickles was applied to the Santa hat & edges of punched senti. papers are Echo Park Season's Greetings, poinsettia is Prima. scallops across bottom were created by punching half circles from scrap pieces of EP paper and then overlapping. this is a wonderful way to use up some of those small or thin scraps of your cute papers! kitty is popped up on foam to give a bit more dimension. faux stitching with my white gel pen completes the card.
