Christmas In July Blog Hop


Hello, my stamping friend. Thank you for stopping by. I am glad to participate in Team Stamp It blog hop again this month. You know, it is not easy to think about Christmas yet, especially here in Florida - super hot right now. But we all know - Christmas will be here before we know it, so better get some ideas going now.
I need to confess - I am addicted. Addicted to Jar of Love bundle. Just can not start using anything else. And of course this is what I decided to use for my Christmas in July. And I wanted to use all three jars as I can not decide yet which one is my favorite.


First card was using big jar and new Emerald Envy in-color. Color combo: Emerald Envy, Real Red, Gold.

Second one - three quarter jar (this is how I call it), more gold and red and just a little of Emerald Envy. Still same color combo: Emerald Envy, Real Red, Gold.

And third one is my favorite. I used half jar and Sweet Sugarplum in-color. Color combo: Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, Gold.


All three cards have exactly the same measurements:
  • Whisper White Piece 3 1/4 x 4 1/2"
  • Colored layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4"
  • Card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2"
  • Scarp for poinsettia and jar
What do you think? Which one is your favorite? Do you have any other idea for color combo?
