July Angel Art Blog Hop - Christmas in July

A group of us from Paper Wings (an on line forum for demonstrators of The Angel Company) are getting a jump start on our Christmas creations, with a Christmas in July blog hop! There are sure to be lots of inspiring ideas from some very talented designers!!

Christmas items are one of my most favorite things to create, so this was fun. I made this card using a new set called  "Jingle Jolly", I love this set!!  There is a holly background stamp, 7 sentiments, and 7 other really cute focal point stamps, like this cute little tree. So cute. For this card I stamped right on kraft card stock and colored the holly in with my Copic markers, then added a touch of white with my white gel pen. This is a quick and easy card that would be a breeze to mass produce for sending at the holidays.
My next item is a sweet little ornament using the same stamp set. We have these fun little clear mini albums, K-604 Mini Deco Album, you get 6 of these little 3"x3" clear pages for only $5.50. It is so easy to turn them into an adorable ornament with a family photo one one side and a cute stamped image on the other. You can attach one of these to a card front as the focal point and send someone special a card and ornament for their tree!
What do you think?

Dont' forget to stop by and see all the other great ideas Angels on this hop came up with, and leave them a nice comment if you see something that inspires you!!
