Christmas in July

Hi! Oops! I almost forgot about this one! Well.. it has been one of those weeks! However, son is recovering quite well from his knee op. and is now navigating without crutches.
Christmas in July is something I don't normally do, but I have been very interested in seeing what the DT and other crafters have been up to for this challenge at:

I started with some heavily textured cream paper cut into a tag and painted 3D stamping paint over it (red and copper). This was put onto a red card stock background. I added some pieces of leftover papers from previous Christmas projects, and started layering. Stars were die cut from card stock, vellum and mirror board which had been alcohol inked. Metal stars, sequins, snowflakes and washi tape were added. Affirmations and image have come from Darkroom Door Filmstrips and Wordstrips.  
This is a very short post. Will catch up with you again soon.
Thanks for stopping by, and thank you for your positive comments and words of encouragement.
Cheers, Di


  1. Love these colours together and this has the perfect amount of sparkle. Hugs, Jenny x

  3. Gorgeous tag Diane, beautiful colours and especially love those stars. Thanks for joining us at Anything But A Card this time.

  4. Glad to hear your son's doing well... And I love your festive tag. Like you, I'm not much of a one for Christmas before December (but I got forced into it this year), and I love the sparkly stars and red and gold that make it Christmassy but not too Christmassy!
