Christmas Cards Celebration in July - Spellbinders

 Let's celebrate Christmas in July!  I love getting Christmas crafty in the summer because I miss the festivities of the season.  I just don't miss the snow.  

Spellbinders is celebrating with some fabulous winter dies to Celebrate the Season.  It's time to Celebrate the Season (with Spellbinders newest collection) The cards featured today use the dies shown below:

Spellbinders Winter Welcome Sled from the Celebrate the Season Collection  

Spellbinders Mix & Match Holiday Greetings - Celebrate the Season Collection

Spellbinders Balsam & Berries Clear Stamp Set from the Celebrate the Season Collection

Secrets to perfect Stamping

The secret to perfect stamping starts with a stamping platform.  My favorite is 
My Sweet Petunia Mini Misti - Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented.  Why do you need a stamping platform?  Because you can keep stamping an image until it's absolutely perfect.  I often need to stamp an image a few times to get complete coverage.  The MISTI helps provide perfection. 

I used Archival ink because it doesn't bleed when I use water color pencils to color the images.   

Finishing Touches on the Card

Finishing touches help complete the card and give it that custom look.  It's all about the details - they do make a difference. I have tiny gem toppers on my flowers from Buttons Galore and More - Merry Mimosa DooDads.    

This is a beautiful, vibrant combination of iridescent confetti and iridescent flat backed crystals.  
Here are some other cards I made using Spellbinders Celebrate the Season collection.  
You can find the original posts to these cards here and here.
