Christmas in July

Christmas in July - sure, why not?!  I got this digital image from Sassy Cheryl yesterday (as she has a sale going on!) and I made it into a slider card. I had to use a special transparency to go through my printer but it worked and I am so excited it did!!  I can start making cards now with my digis I have on hand since I am limited to actual rubber or clear stamps I can use to fit into that small window on the slider card.

I am entering this card in the following Christmas challenges:

Stamping on rocks

So I went to the park yesterday to drop off some books at the Free library box and I found my very first painted rock. I decided to paint a few rocks and then I will hide them around for others to find it. I just stamped mine with stazon ink and then colored it with acrylic paints and let it dry. I had to do a few coats but I think it came out good. I then sprayed it with clear spray to seal it in case it gets wet in the rain. Not sure where I will hide it yet.

Wherever the Road Takes You ...

I have several friends who have RV's and I made a card using this Taylored Expressions set. I stamped the car with the Christmas tree onto watercolor cardstock, then I masked around the car before I stamped the RV next to it. I masked everything and then colored the background using my Tim Holtz Oxide inks. Sprinkled a little water on top and blotted dry to get the little water specs. I colored the images using my Tombow markers and then I added the striped washi tape to make a "road".

A card with a matching rock (LOL)

I made this card a few days ago and then decided I wonder what it would like on a rock so I stamped it, colored it and I think it's pretty cute!!

Goat slider card

Of all the slider cards I've made recently, this one is my favorite. I love this goat set by Art Impressions. It made the perfect birthday card for my friend Jacque in California who has lots of goats. Magic slider card die is by Lawn Fawn and it is super easy to make using that specific die.
