Christmas in July 2020 - part 2!

Hello everyone!  I am popping in quickly with a bunch of Christmas cards I have made over the last 7 or so months.  It's super hot here again; the high today was 93 degrees F.  It's humid too, which makes it feel even hotter.  All I can say is, thank you God for air conditioning!

Hopefully this batch of cards will make you feel cooler, if it's hot where you live too.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Boughs pine cone, branch dies, ombre ribbon, silver snowflake vellum specialty paper; pearls

Stampin' Up! Bells And Boughs poinsettia stamps; Wplus9 Clear Cut Stackers: Stars dies; rhinestones

Stampin' Up! panel from scrap bag (stamped with 'good tidings of great joy, music notes, holly); pearls

Papertrey Ink Silver White Winters snowflake dies, Silent Night sentiment; rhinestones; Verve Glad Tidings snowflake stamp; Webster's Pages green lace trim  

Stampin' Up! silver snowflake vellum specialty paper; SEI silver and white winter die cuts; rhinestones; Verve Glad Tidings single stamp; Kat Scrappiness Wonky Wave Stitched Rectangles die; silver cord

Stampin' Up! patterned paper collage found in scrap bag; Inspired By Stamping Christmas Postcard Add-On stamps (postage, postmark); white enamel dots; red rhinestones; natural twine; Martha Stewart Branch punch; Papertrey Ink snowflake 

I usually shy away from such bright colors all together, but this panel of different Christmas patterned papers had a base for me to work with.  All I had to do was add different collage elements (postage stamps, leaves, a star/snowflake, gems, and a postmark.  It made the card really easy to make, and fun to do!

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Boughs pine cone stamps, pine dies; pearls, rhinestones; Memory Box Breezy Wreath die (cut into pieces for greenery); Verve Glad Tidings sentiment 

Stampin' Up! elements from scrap bag:  die cut stars, mercury glass acetate, swirl/star die cut, embossed background; Papertrey Ink Tag Its #8 Mini sentiment stamps; rhinestones 

Stampin' Up! Bells And Boughs bells, holly stamps; Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blessings: Holiday sentiment stamp

Ahhhhhhhhh...I feel cooler already! Lovely cards all, Colleen. You are so good to be ahead in Christmas card making. I daresay, I'm working on some myself. They do seem to keep me cool, looking at that snow and all. These are all lovely, and as always, it's hard to choose a fav, but I'll choose your bright collage card! It's a different look for you, but I like it very much! We're having hot weather here, too, 31°C (apx. 92°F), but we don't have air conditioning. We've got the fans going, though, believe me. Big hugs!

Colleen, these are all so beautiful! As I was scrolling through I kept ooohing and ahhhing. I think my favorite is the one with the green lace and snowflakes, sigh.
