Christmas in July Poinsettia Card Christmas Cheer

Thank you for stopping by!
I have gathered some supplies and begin my Christmas cards! This one is a simple card with a bit of golden shine getting you ready for Christmas Cheer!



I used my Cricut Explore Air 2, and Design Space3 to come up with this pretty card.
Playing with this combination of colors and the oxide inks is TONS of fun! Each background is unique, as the alcohol in the Color Shine reacts with the pigments in the Oxide inks. It's a must have!

 The background was made with Ranger Oxide Inks and Heidi Swapp Color Shine
The sentiment was stamped using a Stamping Up sentiment from the Sweet Essentials collection.
On the green tag, I used a Hero Arts stamp with American Crafts gold pigment ink for a subtle effect.
The label is an unbranded stitched label die that adds just the perfect amount of texture. 



The poinsettia is the eye-catcher of this simple card, and I finished it off with a splash of Gold Color Shine, as well as golden seed beads that will stay put with Glossy Accents.
To finish the card, I did manage to find more pieces of sequins in red, gold, and green.
I scattered these among the card topper, finishing the festive look perfectly!

For the video tutorial, follow along...
I hope this inspires you to get started with your Christmas projects!!

Be inspired, Be Blessed!-

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
