A Little Christmas In July
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello , Marybeth here today with a Little Christmas In July . I don't think I ever had a chance to use this gorgeous Poinsettia Delight set from Poppystamps until now, boy do I love it.

I also used Poppystamps clear stamp set called Christmastime.

Using these clear    jewel beads I decided to adhere them to the card upside down.... for some reason they were way more shinny... I think it only works with clear jewels .


I was just going to post this for fun so I didn't get any how to photos.  When I realized all my stamps and dies are from Poppystamps I decided to post here on the blog to share.

I did get a photo of the products I used .  I used all white paper for my blooms... all the color came from ink blending with these amazing brushes ( if you don't have any, you can also use make-up brushes)



I added a bit of shimmer to the finished bloom and some yellow drops to the center. At first I added gold drops to the center and they all ran together , I made the decision to take off the gold drops( while still wet) with thin paper and it worked!!!! I then added Nuvo  yellow drops. Got lucky there :)



I hope this card will inspire you to make a few Christmas cards early when things aren't so hectic the closer we get to Christmas ( that would be me)


Thank you for stopping by and thank you for all the sweet comments on my past post. Hugs to you all.






It's so beautiful, and love the gems upside down! :)

Love this lovely card, Marybeth! Love the classic simplicity of your design.

Gorgeous card, Marybeth! Love it!

Gorgeous blending on this lovely poinsettia, Marybeth ... and a great save with the nuvo drop centre! Love the shadows cast by those upside down gems! Hugs, Anita :)

Hi Marybeth, That's me too, I always find myself rushing towards December time haha. This card is lovely, the blending is so pretty as are the upside down gems.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
