"Christmas In July" Angel Art Blog Hop

It's time for another Angel Art Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Wings! I have been crafting up a storm and and have quite the odd mix of Christmas that I'd like to share.

First is a very traditional Christmas Tin & Card Gift Set using a new TAC stamp from Nina B. called Love Never Fails. This isn't even a Christmas set, but I knew right away it would be perfect... I can see lots of uses for this set and I'm sure it will become one of my favorites!

Next is a  vintage 3 sided ornament featuring the lovely lady from the hostess set Beautiful Soul. She was colored with Copics and I used melted beeswax over the piece before it was framed inside the Heirloom Nestabilitie.The shape was cut from corrugated cardboard and dry brushed with lt. ivory acrylic paint sprinkled with glitter while wet. I decided I liked it turned upside down with the touch of pearls across the top. I added a rayon tassel and loop for hanging and a velvet ribbon to finish it off.
Last is a very un-traditional Christmas Card using Joyful Ornaments and the More Mimi paper collection. Love the richness of this one! I embossed the ornament with Versa Magic Pink Petunia & Clear EP the top of the ornament was Embossed with Color Box Platinum & Clear EP. I pieced the two papers and the border that I cut from Parisian Accents together then cut using Labels 5, a string of pearls on each side finish it off.

Be sure to check out the wonderful Christmas creations from these talented angels below!
