Magic Is In The Air!

 I'm super excited to announce that I am Guest Designer on the design team for Jan's Digi Stamps!  I absolutely LOVE her images.  The images have such nice clean lines and they are super simple to color digitally!  For those of you who color digitally, you know what I am talking about!  The other nice thing about the clean lines is, they're also easy to use with Cricut (for fussy cutting).

This month Jan is doing a Christmas in July sale with over 36 sets on sale!  The image I used for my card is one of the sets that are on sale.  This one is Magic of the Season.  You get all of the images you can see here (both colored and uncolored).

As you can see I used the uncolored hat w/the bell and the uncolored Magic is in the air sentiment.  I used the magic swirlies three times.  I also snagged the fireworks from the Independence Day Friends set (such a fun set!!).  I added a bow and some stick on sequins, and of course, as you can see it is a shaker card, so I used tons of shaker sequins (all from CTMH).  I cut the circles and the image out using my Cricut.

I hope you will go and take advantage of the Christmas in July sale going on now!  There are some very pretty sets and you'll be sorry if you miss out on the awesome deal!

Thank you for looking!

So fun, Karen! Magic is a great way to incorporate stars - especially for Frosty's hat! Brilliant! Thanks so much for playing at Sparkles!

Thank you for sharing your magical card with us at Double Trouble, Karen! Looks like you also used something like Crystal Effects on the bell for dimension! Like you, I can't imagine making cards without my digital cutting machine (I have a Scan-N-Cut). Happy "Christmas in July"!!! -Donna
