PLS Bunny and Bingo Christmas in July


Hi, Friends.....

LAST ONE....LAST ONE!!!!  Here is my last Christmas in July card to share with you made from odds and ends from my holiday stash box.  Did all these cards make a dent in my scraps????  Nope. Not even close!  lol....  But I sure had fun making them and it did feel good to use some things that had been sitting around for a long time.

Recently I won a very, very generous prize from Pretty Little Studio.  Included in the package was a little assortment of vintage Christmas critters...mostly adorable bunnies!  I love the PLS critters and wanted to make one of the busy collage cards that I see little vintage die cuts featured in.  I'm not very good at making these cards.....mine usually end up looking like my stash box got spilled on the floor in a puddle of glue!!!  Bwahahaha!! 

But I got brave and opened up my box and pulled out a PLS holiday JOY Bingo card and a bunch of other little odds and ends that might coordinate....a snowflake (which I backed in vellum), a little die-cut button, a red doily, and some adhesive pearls along with a background of very old patterned paper.  

Here's the card I came up with....what do you think?  I really like it....esp for a first attempt with these supplies.

Supplies used include:
Pretty Little Studio Vintage Holiday Die Cuts and Journaling Cards
Memory Box - Lindeman Snowflake die
Poppystamps - Button Oval die set
Doodlebug - Mini Doilies
Scraps of Patterned Paper and Vellum
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Pearls

This concludes my garden of Christmas in July cards.  (Now what do I do with the half-finished cards that are stiiiiiiiiiiiiillll on my craft desk!??? lol...)  Hope you enjoyed my card today!  Thank you for stopping by.  And a HUGE thank you for those of you who visited each of my Christmas in July cards from the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers and left such nice comments.  You made me so happy!   Mwahhhh!  

Now I am officially a month behind in my Cat Lovers Hop preparations, but I am ahead of my game for Christmas cards!  So if I disappear from my blog again for awhile, you will know I am getting ready for our Cat Hop #8 in October!!  Yay!!!

  6. Great collection of elements. Thank you for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge xx Lynda/Loopyloo DT

  7. What a cute motive! Thanks for joining us at the Papercraft Challenge.

  8. I love this, Janis! I adore anything cute-retro and it reminds me of storybooks from my childhood! Love, love, love! Such an adorable card! I am excited about the upcoming Cat Lovers Hop - if you need anyone to make a card or two, let me know - I probably have cat stamps from most of your sponsors and would be happy to help out. That reminds me, just the other day I read about a new cat challenge but now I can't remember the name or even where I read about it. I think I saw a comment from you there - do you remember the name? I want to let one of my other crafty cat-loving friends know about it. And please let me know how I can help with the Cat Lovers Hop! I'd be happy to do so! Sending hugs from Canada!

  9. Me again, Janis! I found the new Cat Challenge - I saw your Dragonfly badge and that triggered my memory! But I hope to hear from you about helping out with the cat hop...

  10. LOVE this sweet little card so much and look at you using vellum behind the snowflake die.These retro images take me back to childhood when this type of design was very popular. I definitely think you have a knack for working with these vintage elements and hope to see more!


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
