DT Craftwell: Christmas in July Ornaments, Tags, and Card


 Dear Scrappers,

This is my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made some Christmas ornaments, tags, nd with a leftover cut, a card.
For the ornaments I used clear plastic ornaments from Michaels (the ones that open in the middle) and used some die cuts from the Anna Griffin "Christmas Sentiment die set" and some Chunky glitter.

I used some metallic cartstock (a lead color) and hotglued the die cut to one of the half of the ornament, added some glitter to it and closed the ornament, and hotglued some glitter ribbon around the seam.

For the shaker cards, I used the kit of the month (from a few years ago) from Sizzix. I used the glitter card stock included in the kit to cut the outlines and regular cardstock for the back. For the back of the star, I used another Sizzix die that I had. I complemented the look with die cuts using Spellbinder dies and glitter cardstock.

With the leftover AG Christmas sentiment diecuts, I made cards:


I used the Holiday card kit from CTMH, stamps and ink:

I cut all the die cuts with my SNAP.

I hope you enjoyed my few projects and please make sure to visit Craftwell for more inspiration and to follow me.

Merry Christmas in July

And here's a little bit about our sponsor:

Conie first started sharing her art with the world by selling ACEO reprints of her ACEO paintings of fairies, mermaids, and kitty art on Ebay in 2010.  She was a full time account manager for a University before becoming a full time mom and part time artist.  

She currently enjoys spending time with her family traveling, exploring the outdoors, and designing beautiful, cute, and magical art for craft and coloring lovers.
