LeighSBDesigns Christmas in July Blog Hop #19


Once again LeighSBDesigns is hosting a blog hop.
This time it is to celebrate CHRISTMAS in JULY

I am still making ICADs (Index Card A Day, over June and July) and I am adding a couple to this post...sometimes I have to catch up and make three!

A couple of days ago I joined in with a Zoom Craft and Chat with the UK Stampers Network. Mickey was demonstrating a technique which I tried some time later - these days it is too early to take part at the actual time, with the current time difference - I am usually still in my dressing gown!

The process was to cut a wobbly mask from a piece of acetate and then use it to make a shape using Distress Oxides - blended with brushes.
I then added a chipboard made by layering up diecuts.
I then added splatter using white gloss spray.

I made the create index card but also used a version to add to my mixed media calendar page for September - I am trying to get a little ahead. Last year I was making pages half way through the month...


My next index card is celebrating Christmas in July.
I used a Tattered Lace embossing Folder with rustic wilderness Distress Oxide smeared through it. After adding a piece of white card and running it through my Big Shot, I had enough background to make two index cards, matted on green card.

I decided to make the first one with a focus of a sentiment (like create above).
I printed the sentiment from Santa Sandy Oddleigh, trimmed it and placed it on green card.
I added silver sparkle to the spaces in the letters.

I will add this to Leigh's Linky. 

Happy Crafting!
