Welcome back to my blog! We finally got our new house & I have been busy unpacking & setting up. I managed to squeeze out a spot to create this week until the new studio is finished.
If you arrived here from Susan’s Blog you are right on track, if not, just keep journeying along & you’ll come back full circle.
This months theme is Christmas in July and with all the new goodies from the new Fun Stampers Journey Journey Holidays Mini Catalog it wasn’t an easy choice on what to create. I really love the holiday birds available, so I picked Noel Chirp AT-0222, with the sentiment from Robin Holiday SS-0378 & the background from Pretty Flakes SS-0377. I went with a classic easy design since unpacking & getting settled in has taken top priority at the moment.
The card base is Catalina Splash, matted with Pool Play & accented with a Pretty Amethyst oval from the Journey Ovals. I am a huge fan of non-traditional Christmas color combos. For the background I stamped a snowflake in Journey Silver Fusion Ink & brushed the flakes with Journey Brush Silver PanPastel. I stamped the bird in Black Licorice Fusion Ink, colored with Catalina Splash, Pretty Amethyst, Pool Play, Citrus Cooler & Brush Silver PanPastels & fussy cut to pop onto the oval. The sentiment is stamped in Catalina Splash Fusion Ink.
Stay tuned for more projects & class updates as I get closer to opening up the new studio. It’s going to be amazing!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Kim’s Blog & see her wonderful creation!
Have a Fabulously Creative Week!

i love this birdie and it works so well on a Christmas card! Thanks for joining the hop — i’m getting lots of inspiration for making the cards i need to send at the appropriate time … 😀
This is so cute! Love the blues and purples you chose.
Ruth, I love the pop of purple you used on your card. It is non-traditional but I like it. It also set the bird off and I like that too. Good Job.
So cute, and I really enjoy your use of non traditional Christmas colors!
Isn’t that little bird darling? I love how you’ve colored him!
What a sweet card – I really like the non-traditional color scheme. Hope you don’t mind if I CASE this one!
