Christmas in July Blog Hop!!

I'm so excited to see all the wonderful Christmas projects and cards created in this Christmas in July Blog Hop. This hop was put together by the fabulously talented Stacy Rogers! If you haven't ever visited her blog, you're missing out on some wonderful color combinations and beautiful CAS designs. She has inspired me with her stamped backgrounds and I'm honored to be in her hop!

So, without further ado, here are my Christmas projects...
 Here are all the projects together. I focused on cherry, sugar, vanilla, silver and kraft - kind of a vintage-y feel. :)
Any Sound of Music fans out there? Here's my brown paper package tied up with string. :) Well, technically it's tied up with the yummy silky crush ribbon but there is a little cherry/white baker's twine on top. :)
 Love the candy box die! Here are several different versions. You've got a  Twas the Night Before Christmas box, a Candy Cane Stripe box and a Cherry box with the small mitten die cut out of it and a candy cane strip insert inside. The snowman cut-out is on top of the mitten and the Christmas tree cut out is on the brown paper package in the previous photo. The candy boxes with the clear openings have a big of crystal clear cardstock taped inside the box.
Check out the snowman and the silver tree on the cherry chevron rosette. A few sky twinkle stickers finish off the look. I love bling. Wouldn't this be great on a gift bag or on a big package? Or, punch some holes, add some ribbon and make it into an ornament. :)
And, here's a different rosette. This one is made out of cherry petite polka dot and has a silver vintage die cut with some poinsettia die cuts on top alternated in cherry and cherry chevron. Some twinkle stickers and pearl stickers finish off the look.
Ah, Santa's Flight - I've had my eye on this stamp for a while and I finally got it! Here's my first card with it. Santa and his reindeer are stamped on the Twas the Night Before Christmas cardstock and check out the fun way to dress up the twill ribbon. Stamp directly on it to make a customized ribbon border. I love how it looks with the sentiment, don't you? A little cherry ink around the edge of the text cardstock layer and a glue dot with a button on top. A little cherry/white baker's twine finishes off the look. :)
Here's the inside. Simple and fun!
