Christmas in July

I caved in and bought those adorable Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamps and now I see there is a set of crazy accessories too. I have them on pre-order from Oyster Stamps. They are due mid August but I can't wait for them so I made a Christmas hat for my little bird from last year's half tone set.

I used watercolour card stock and distress markers to colour her. Fun flock is added to the hat and ground for snow.

This got me in the mood so I played with my Tim Holtz  Sizzix Alterations set called Merry Christmas that I picked up in the sales earlier this year. This one is almost a copy of the example on the back of the packet and I think a good one to make a bunch of quick cards for Christmas.

I used distress markers direct to the stamp, die cut and mounted with foam pads.
Colours used were Barn Door, Frayed Burlap and Wild Honey. I still love the names of the TH colours.

Happy July 25th!
