Christmas in Summer

Hello again.

You may be wondering why I would call this Christmas in Summer? It is because in the world of craft – Christmas collections are launched in June: meaning that on a hot, sunny Summer morning I sat in my craft room making this set of Christmas cards for the launch of a new set of Christmas stamps and embellishments from Lisa Horton Crafts.

The bottles and jars are large A5 sized stamps which act as the holders of all your Christmas wishes. I cut around them in many of my versions which was easy enough to do. All the iconic festive elements can then be stamped and popped inside the bottle frame and as well as a little sparkle you can add a Festive Wordage sentiment (which are printed in white, black and red)

The Wordage sentiments deserve a sentence of their own because they are not your average set of words. They include phrases such as “Hurry down the chimney tonight” “counting the days””naughty or nice” and the “elf did it”. They are witty and a little bit different. Furthermore, the type face is smart and timeless.

I used one set of the Christmas element stamps which included the cutest little gingerbread people, candy canes, trees (that can be used at any time of the year) stockings and so on. The second stamp set includes the big man himself and a gingerbread house. There is also a set of the most beautiful floral stamps. My personal favourite is the mistletoe bough.

You can probably tell that this is a great set of Christmas stamps to work with. My top tip would be – keep all your elements on the backing sheet and stamp them all in one go. Don’t forget you can stamp onto coloured paper rather than plain white.

These goodies will be launching on Create and Craft TV on the 12th June.–2813342?channel=CC

After two weeks they will be available to buy directly from “That Craft Place”

Keep crafting – stay safe – and keep well

Until next time
