Simon Says: Christmas in July Blog Hop!

In honour of Christmas in July and Tim Holtz, Simon Says Stamp has organized a blog hop with loads of inspiration.

So I used Tim Holt products and make a Christmas card...in a heatwave..hehe..I don't mind, because I like making Christmas cards all year round.

For my cards I inkblended Distress oxides and or Versamagics.
For the Tree card I used Iced Spruce, Tumbled glass and Aspen Mist. I spritzed it with water and a water and bleach solution, but my cardstock doesn't play along.
For the second card I sued Tumbled glass, Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet and Seabreeze, then on top Cloud white through a circle stencil I made with circle dies. I wanted a bokeh effect.

Then I stamped the images from Stamper Anonymous  (Christmas blueprints cms135) on top with Versamark ink and sprinkled them with Wow! embossing powders ( black twinkle) and heat set it.

For more information on the SImon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, see this.

I also hopped and found 7 presents, but I'm not sure what to do with this info...
