Christmas in July

Nancy here to share two projects featuring some of the new The Cat’s Pajamas digital stamps and cutables. TCP has been doing Christmas in July releases for several years now which really helps me to get started on my Christmas cards.

First up is the new digital stamp set Penguin Sleigh which was printed onto Copic friendly cardstock, colored with Copics, then fussy cut out. I attached it to a die cut circle. The sentiment front the set was printed onto the card front and I anchored the image circle with a strip of patterned paper. A few rain stones finished it up.

I used the new Simply Winter Cutables to cut the bird and pine branches from cardstock using my Silhouette machine. After assembling the cardinal I used R30 Copic to shade and then added a small enamel heart. The pine bough was cut twice so I would have another small branch both cut from white cardstock. I blended on bundled sage and iced spruce distress oxide ink, sprinkled glue over the stems, then poured glitter over it for a bit of sparkle. I prepared the background with tumbled glass distress ink and water. The cut pieces were attached to a vellum circle which was then strategically glued to the background so the glue would not show. The sentiment from the Merry Everything set (which is 60% off) was stamped using silvery shimmer ink onto cardstock cut with a double ended flag die. I layered it onto a rectangle piece cut from the same cardstock piece as the bird for a bit of extra color. Lastly I added a few sparkly enamel dots.

As TCP continues to transition to digital products, the physical product is 60% off.
