Bugaboo Christmas in July — Days 4-6

Hi again!  I’m trying to get all of my Christmas in July cards posted and today will get caught up in challenges.  Not too bad considering tomorrow is the last day!  Since I have 3 cards again today, I’m going to get straight to it.

Tuesday’s challenge was a recipe challenge of Kraft, embossing (dry or wet) and snowflakes.

I love having a bunch of snowman cards around!  A — they are cute! B — They are great for Christmas and Winter.  C — They are great if you have friends and family who do not celebrate Christmas.  This guy was in my colored image stash.  With his brightly colored jacket and scarf, I opted to go very neutral on the card.  The base is kraft and the white is embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder.  I added in a blue polka dotted bow — I’ve had this ribbon in my stash for ages — and some glittery snow balls, which fit perfectly in his hand.  Lastly, I blasted it with MIX-ables Mist from MFT.

Wednesday’s challenge was a BINGO challenge + make it funny.

Here’s my funny — I was going through my stash of uncolored images and came across this JJ Christmas Ornament image.  Instantly, I heard Miley Cyrus belting out “I came in like a wrecking ball…” in my head.  When I printed my next group of images, I tacked on a sentiment of “The holidays came in like a wrecking ball!”  LOL!  For BINGO – I used Bugaboo Image, Players Choice and Bow.  The layout is this week’s Sunday Sketch challenge, which worked perfectly for a big round image.  I kept things rather simple — LOVE that silver sheer ribbon — it makes beautiful bows.  I added some Snow Marker to her skirt and the tag, but had some issues with it when heating it — it wasn’t puffing up and then I burned my tag with my embossing gun.

Today’s challenge is a photo inspiration and it’s a beachy scene, so I automatically went to the Christmas in July set of Santas Jodie released a few years back.

Again, I went back to my go-to layout for a quick and simple card.  More papers from Lilybee Designs.  Another kraft card base and more sheer ribbon bows.  Just a tad bit of Stickles on his hat.  Love these colors together!
