August Keeping Christmas Inspiration Blog Hop

Hi friends! It's the 25th of the month and that means it's time to join my crafty friends once again as we share Christmas inspirations along our monthly Keeping Christmas Blog Hop.

If you're just popping in, the hop starts over at Kelly's blog. If you came from Claire Broadwater's blog, then you're right on track! 😊

I still had stamps out on my desk from creating for the Hero Arts Oh What Fun Blog Hop, so I decided to start there. I am so smitten with this awesome new Nordic Holiday background stamp. I stamped it tone on tone in red and love how it turned out.  

I had this idea in my mind to recreate an envelope and use the stamp image from From the Vault Winter Joy for the postage stamp.  I embossed  the address sections with sentiments from Holiday Messages & Icons, then embossed the stamp image in red and matted on shiny gold paper.

I accented with a bit of washi tape and some poinsettia and holly embellishments from Hobby Lobby.

Hope this fun little card has inspired you to get going on your Christmas projects! For more eye candy and inspiration, head on over to the next stop on the hop... Kim Heggins!

Julee, I love how your card reminds me of a postcard. Doing that tone on tone is great and that is awesome washi tape!

Super fun and cute! I am all about the reds lately although I confess that it wigs me out just a bit that for two months Hobby Lobby has their Christmas Stuff out already! Ha ha!
