Inspired Stamps Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome here!  My blog has been  looking a little empty around here the past few weeks.  Cuttlebug Mania is on hiatus until September and my family was away for 3 weeks and I wasn't able to update anything while I was away...it was all scheduled:)  Now that I'm back, hopefully I'll be able to pop in more often with some inspiration.

Today Inspired Stamps is having a Christmas in July Blog Hop so if you've come from the Inspired Stamps Blog, you're on the right track, if not you can start right here and the links will take you right around!! It was fun breaking out the stamps I had tucked away from last Christmas.

Card Sizes:  4.25" x 5.5"
 
I used the same patterned paper for each...Bazzill 6x6 Nordic Pines...and changed up the stamp sets I used.  I love it when you have a 'template' and just need to decide which stamps to use, it makes creating fast and easy.

For the first card I used 2 stamp sets, Fir Trees and Blessed Little Christmas.  Fir trees always remind me of Christmas!  I also used Blessed Little Christmas for the inside of the card as well.

Inside:
Recipe:  Inspired Stamps SS-Fir Trees & Blessed Little Christmas, Bazzill 6x6 Nordic Pines Paper, Bazzill Mono Aspen CS, CTMH White Daisy CS, Foam Squares, Darice 10lb Hemp, CTMH Ink-Black, New England Ivy & Buttercup.

For this card I used the Holly from the Flower Value Set and I coloured it with Copics. The scripture I used is from Blessed Little Christmas.  The inside uses the same stamps sets I used for the outside.

Inside:
 Recipe:  Inspired Stamps SS-Flower Value Set & Blessed Little Christmas, Bazzill 6x6 Nordic Pines Paper, Bazzill Mono Aspen CS, CTMH White Daisy CS, Foam Squares, Darice 10lb Hemp, Memento Black Tuxedo Ink, CTMH Ink-Black & New England Ivy, Copics-G24, G28, R27, W2.

For the final card in my set I used the Snowmen stamp set which I coloured with Copics, and the sentiment is from Vintage Christmas.  I used both again for the inside of my card.
