Jellypark Friends - Christmas in July

I love Christmas in July challenges because they give me that push I need to get to work on those cards before it's crunch time.  At Jellypark Friends we're having that challenge for the next two weeks.  This week we're also releasing a new line of Christmas images.  If you haven't visited our blog or our shop today then you have to go there after you finish here.

This card was made with one of the Christmas images from last year.    

Here's the deets:
stamp - Jellypark Friends "Polar Bear"
ink - printer
paper - Basic Grey "Mistletoe and Pear" pad
miscellaneous - copics; stickles; baker's twine; tree charm; bling; My Favorite Things "Oval Stax" and "Fishtail Flags Stax" die-namics

Here's the challenges:
Jellypark Friends - Christmas in July
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Show Us What You Got, Christmas in July
Southern Girls #74 - Animal Antics
Creative Belli #174 - Christmas (I got this paper pack for Christmas when I was still living in NJ, I moved from there in 2010)
Crafting for All Seasons #57 - Christmas in July

This is another card made with one of last year's Christmas images:

stamp - Jellypark "Snowman with  Birds"
ink - printer
paper - Basic Grey "Figgy Pudding - Forest" dsp; My Favorite Things "Berrylicious" card stock; Stampin' Up "Whisper White" cars stock

miscellaneous - copics; baker's twine; snowman charm; EK Success border punch; brads; My Favorite Things "Circle Stax" and "Snowflake Doily" die-namics

Now here's some cards made with some of the new images:

stamp - Jellypark Friends " Snowglobe"
ink - printer
paper - DCWV "Neutrals" Card Stock pad; Martha Stewart "Cottage Christmas" pad
miscellaneous - copics; stickles; ribbon; raccoon charm; cord; EK Success border punch

I don't have a die cut for this image.  I cut out the snow globe, placed it (upside down) on green card stock, traced around the edge and then tried to cut an even edge around the drawn line.  It's not perfect but it looks pretty good.  Sometimes all it takes is to have faith in your abilities.

Another new image - 

stamp - Jellypark Friends "Christmas Window Scene
ink - printer
paper - Bazzill "Ruby Slipper" and "Snow White" card stock; Martha Stewart "Cottage Christmas" pad
miscellaneous - copics; Martha Stewart border punch; stickles; cord; ribbon; ornament charm; brads

and another 

stamp - Jellypark Friends Xmas Thank You
ink - printer
paper - Close to My Heart, My Reflections "Pear and Partridge"
miscellaneous - copics; corner punch; My Favorite Things "Little Open Scallop" border die-namic; cord; bird charm; machine stitching

and lastly

stamp - Jellypark Friends "Xmas Fairy"
ink - printer
paper - Bazzill "Glow" and "Blossom" card stock; Stampin' Up "Whisper White" card stock; October Afternoon "Make It Merry" dp
miscellaneous - copics; brads; baker's twine; candy cane twine; stickles; My Favorite Things "Snowflake Doily" die-namic;  machine stitching
