Christmas in July

Welcome to our Fun Stampers Journey "Christmas in July" Blog Hop! I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! This is the first stop on the hop, but if you arrived from another blog, just keep hoping until you come full circle.

It's almost crazy to think about Christmas when the temperatures are in the triple digits, but I get to longing for cooler weather, and remembering that I need to get started on this year's Christmas cards. I make a couple hundred, so I have to start early.  Lucky for me, the Fun Stampers Journey new catalog and seasonal mini catalog have some amazing stamp sets that I love!

I'm especially partial to stamp sets that celebrate the birth of Jesus, and what better way to begin a series of Christmas cards than with an angel who announced the birth of Christ?

This is a simple, yet elegant card. It honestly didn't take long to make, which makes it a perfect card. I began with a piece of Whip cream cardstock and applied a Blue and a metallic silver Pan Pastel which has a new partnership with Fun Stampers Journey.

If you've never heard of Pan Pastel, it's an oil based chalk that is  highly pigmented (loaded with color). It goes on the cardstock very smoothly and you can blend it or layer it, or stamp an image with our clear pigment ink and them rub it on your focal panel.

So elegant. I really love this stamp, and you're so right - it would be a good one to make multiples of.

So pretty! I am sure the picture does not do justice on the coloring. Awesome Job.
