Wacky Watercooler Christmas in July Blog Hop

July 2015 Blog Hop photo July 2015 Banner.jpg
Our Blog Hop runs in a circular fashion.  No matter where you begin, you'll wind up back in the exact same place again if you keep going to the "next" blog.  It works the same way whether you do the usual forward through the blog posts or if you work your way through in reverse order

If you arrived at my blog from Bev's blog, Welcome! I am sure you came away with plenty of ideas.

For this hop we were challenged to do 3 things, a Christmas card, a catalog CASE, and a card using one of the new punches. I made all three of the cards Christmas.

First up catalog CASE on page 8 is the card I CASEd.
For my CASE I turned the sketch upside down, I stamped it in Vesrsamark and embossed it with embossing powder using White Christmas stamp set.
Next a card using a new punch, well so far I have only bought two of them so I used the Banner Triple Punch. I used the new Every Blessing stamp set, stamped the image with Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder and the sentiment with gold embossing powder. I sponged the back ground.

For my last card I used White Christmas but the sentiment from Petite Pairs. I stamped on Watercolor Paper with Stazon and lightly watercolored it. I used lots of Dazzling Diamonds on the branches and snow banks.

Next up on our hop is my granddaughters blog, Jaylin is turning 11 on Saturday. Jaylin was invited to join our hop as a budding young stamper her blog is Crafting with Colors


  1. So, again Kath, you've outdone yourself. I love the "upside down balloons" that become ornaments! All the projects are lovely!

  2. As I'm looking through your post...
    First card - ah, so cute!
    Second card - wow, how pretty!
    Third card - oh, how fun!
    Great job!!

  3. Three wonderful projects Kath. I love how you turned those balloons upside down for your first card.

  4. What a fabulous use of colour with all three projects, from choice of cardstock to how you blend the inks. Amazing as usual!

  5. I cant' choose just one favourite - I love 'em all! Genius idea to turn the balloon framelit upside down to make ornaments :) Your colouring on the other two cards is just beautiful, Kath. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Kath, these are all such beautiful Christmas projects. The upside down balloons are really inspired!

  7. I love what your card with the upside down balloons as ornaments, brilliant!

  8. You clever lady! Turning those balloon dies upside down, what a concept. The shepherd card is gorgeous and White Christmas is one of my favorite sets. As always, an awesome job.

  9. I would not have thought to turn the balloons upside down to make ornaments out of them. Great idea Kath!
