Christmas in July

Whew!  Can you believe this heatwave that we are in the midst of right now?  It's too hot to do too many things outside so I decided to cool off by making some Christmas cards.  Yesterday afternoon I stamped, colored and began an assembly line to make 15 Christmas cards featuring the ORIGINAL Gumball Graphics Santa stamp.  This jolly old elf stamp is amongst my very favorite stamps.
Using the Mojo Monday #302 layout for inspiration (shown below) I got my cardstock, ink, papers and embellishments out and got a jumpstart on making my Christmas cards.

Card Recipe:
Stamp:  Gumball Graphics Santa (stamp is no long manufactured)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Image colored with Copic Markers
Designer Paper:  Recollections "Naughty or Nice"
Tools & Embellishments: Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, Martha Stewart half pearl, Snowflake punched from an embossed flocked wall paper sample, Merry Christmas ribbon "Tis the Season" from Michaels brand and All Night Media Liquid Embossing in Antique Glass Finish for his glasses.

Keep cool! Until next time,
