Get a HOP on Christmas with InStyle Stamps

It's that time of the month when InStyle Stamps Design Team all hop together to show you a few fabulous designs using the stamps we are featuring that month.  This month ..... Christmas in July!!!

If you came here by way of Angelique's blog, you are on the right track.  If not, why not start at the beginning at InStyle Stamps Blog.  Now.. onto my card...


I used Ornamental Chloe and decided to go with some non-traditional colors for my card.  I used my Copic markers to make Chloe "swing" into Christmas with pinks and teals!  My card is a "swing" design card.  I used my Oval Nestabilities to cut out the front of my card base.  I stamped the corners with a holly image and with a Quickie Glue Pen, added some teal glitter as the berries.  Chloe will swing back and forth amongst the other ornaments behind her as you move the card.  *smile*


On the inside I layered my card stock to coordinate with Chloe.  My "dangling" ornaments are heat embossed with white embossing powder.  My sentiment is towards the bottom so that when the card is closed,  you cannot see it through the oval.  If you place your signature properly, Chloe will hide it.

I didn't want Chloe to look "dark" from the inside... so I sponged on some grey ink so that she looked more shadowed and you could still see some of the Copic color coming through.  Sort of mimicking a real translucent ornament.  If I had another image that I didn't want to appear translucent, I would have used heavier card stock so that my Copics wouldn't show through at all.

I hope you enjoy the hop.  Your next stop is at Taylor Usry's blog.  Remember to stop back at InStyle Stamps blog to vote for your favorite project in the hop and leave a comment, you could be the winner of four digi images!

Have fun hopping!!! *smile*
