Cool Krafty Christmas Creations

Welcome to another fabulous Inspire Me Monday!  I'm hostess Allison Cope.

I live in Southern Alberta, Canada and we're experiencing an extremely hot summer this year.... okay, hot for where we live... LOL!  The temperatures have reached above 30˚C (86˚F) already more than once in the last few weeks and we're normally an average of about 23˚C (73˚F) here close to Calgary during the summer.

So to beat the heat, I thought I'd create a card with COOL feelings in mind.  I thought I'd go step-by-step through how I made my frosty Christmas krafty creation with you!

Grab a cool summery mock-tail and join me for some cool craftin' today...


Here's another quick peek of both cards.  Each card was created using the gorgeous holiday inspired Bough Wow Wow and Merry Littles stamp sets.... perfect for that cool feeling I so desperately need!



Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed the video and I hope you continue to join me in keeping cool where ever you are!

  1. Oh, Ally, thanks for the great tutorial! I just love both cards, and the stitching is a great touch, along with that great Liquid Appliqué that just "poofs" into snow! Hugs!

  2. Thank you for a fabulous tutorial!! I LOVE the fun Liquid Appliqué. I used to have that in my stash. I might just have to get it out and see if it still works!!
