More Christmas in July - I mean August!

Good morning!

I have two cards to share this morning that I shared last week over the SNSS blog but haven't shared here yet.  I used the new dies that were just released through Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for our Christmas in July blog hop event!  Today's cards were made with the lovely Vintage Ornaments and the new Ornaments die collection.

I stamped the ornaments on the die cuts with Brilliance ink, so there is a soft shimmer to each of them.  So pretty in real life!  I also 'hung' each one with some platinum shimmer twine and embellished the centers with a clear rhinestone.

I used some non-traditional colors and papers for my second card.  I love the font that Korin used for the main sentiments and wanted to use all three of these together for my sentiment.  I stamped the sentiments in Versafine ink -  my favorite black for the crispness and the richness.   I used the platinum shimmer baker's twine again to 'hang' the ornament - can you see why it's one of my favorites?  

Have a great day!

Beautiful cards Jessica :-) The twine really is very pretty and just right for these cards.
