Christmas in July at Bugaboo!

Trying to make Christmas cards when I'm sweating is DEFINITELY a challenge, but I am determined to finish all 7 challenges for Bugaboo's weeklong Christmas in July event.

Up first is my Show Us Your Santa - using Stella Christmas - Boy List:


Supplies: image from Bugaboo; computer generated sentiment; Echo Park papers; Spectrum Noir & Bic markers; button from Dress it Up; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; classic small circle Nesties


I've added gloss to Stella's glasses, and the button list has headings of 'good' and 'bad' - and the sentiment? Pretty much how I feel for most of December :)

My second card is for the second challenge, a sketch, using Stella Calendar Months, November: 



Supplies: bugaboo image; Cat's Pajamas sentiment; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; papers from Echo Park; Spectrum Noir markers; Dress it Up snowflake buttons; rhinestone strip from Dollarama; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; Cotton Ball fun flock from Stampendous; classic small oval Nesties


I always add that bit of gloss to Stella's glasses - and this time to her boots as well. I've also added Fun Flock to the 'fuzzy' parts of her hat & muff. Is that what you call the thing her hands are in, a muff? I think so. 

Here's the sketch:

And here's the link to the master post of challenges. See you tomorrow with more Christmas!

Jessi

This is so cool! I had to look and look because I literally thought I was looking at the photo-shop photo of a black and white photo with that creative bit of color. WELL DONE Jessi.

Stella is too cool and pretty much sums up my attitude towards Christmas.
