Day 7 of the Bugaboo Stamps Christmas in July challenge is finally here, which means this is the last challenge of the celebration. I have had loads of fun this last week, been inspired to stretch my comfort zone, added to my Christmas card stash, and have a chance at winning some awesome prizes!
The challenge today is photo inspiration, shown below, AND using the Friday Freebie at the Catch the Bug challenge blog The movie offered to inspire crafters is "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer."the main blog. I think that I used all the colors offered in the inspiration photo! LOL The image is colored with Copics and I had my way with the embellishments. AND everything came from my stash. Besides adhesives and Copic ink refills, I haven't bought anything new this year. Oh, wait! I just placed an order with Scrapbooking Made Simple during their annual The Shop That Did Not Hop clearance sale!! Oh well, I haven't got that order in yet, and not likely to for another couple months!
Anyway, after building up my card front with patterned papers, I colored up my image, adding a geometric background behind Rudolph and his cohorts. I cut several large Christmas light bulbs, 2 of which are on the front with a bow at their tops. I added sparkly snowflakes to the flakes already printed on my paper.
Making pop-up cards are fun, but very time-consuming without a template (which I don't have). I am well on my way to reaching my Christmas card goal, thanks to Bugaboo Stamps Christmas in July Challenge. I hope you've joined in the fun. Good luck ad happy crafting!
