Christmas In July blog hop!!

Welcome and thank you for joining us for our Christmas in July Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Chris' blog @ Get Inspired With Chatterscene . If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to Elaine's blog @ Expressions By Elaine so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share!       

Be sure to visit & follow all the blogs to be entered for the Grand Prize, after you have stopped at all the blogs be sure to go back to the beginning blog Expressions By Elaine and leave your name in the inlinkz.

For my project today, I made a Christmas card using blues, browns and greens, so definitely not typical Christmas colors but I really like the way it turned out!  I've recently started using my Gypsy again and I'm in love all over again - I'm not sure why I stopped using it but now I can't make a project without it!!  And in rediscovering my Gypsy, I've also paid more attention to Gypsy Wanderings and I'M IN LOVE with this cart - so many great cuts!!

I used the DCWV stack 'Holiday Collection: The Christmas Stack' for this card, as well as a Kraft cardstock base.  The card base shape is a tag from Gypsy Wanderings that I welded together and both the word art and the reindeer also came from that cart.  I used my i-rock and gems as well as American Crafts Ribbon.
Here's the lineup in case you get lost along the way - have fun hopping!  :)

  22. Kim,

    Fantastic card, I love the colors & how well it works for Christmas!
    I need to attempt to use my gypsy, it is a little intimidating for me. You really made me want to give it a try again, since I have wanted to use the Wanderings.
    Thanks so much for sharing & for being in the hop:)

  23. Wonderful card great job.
    I am a follower of your, and love the work I have seen.

    Way to think out of the box on the colors for your card. They may be non-traditional, but the card still has Holiday Appeal! Love it! So honored to be in the hop with you!

  27. This card is gorgeous! TFS!

  28. Very simple and elegant! Love it.

  29. Beautiful card! I don't own a Gypsy but I've heard that once you have one, you can't hardly create without it!! Glad you found your way back to yours!
