Last day of free shipping at Colorado Craft Company


Good morning!

Today is the last day to take advantage of Free Shipping at Colorado Craft Company. No promo code is needed, as the site will automatically apply free shipping on all US orders and International orders will get a $6.95 discount, making their shipping cost $10.00. There are also a couple fun ways to win that are still happening, the first is a chance to win the entire Christmas in July release and for that you just have to use a designer's affiliate link when you order and you will be entered into that give-away. Second, there is a new stamp set up for grabs at each individual designer's blog that is participating in the showcase, so the more blogs you comment on the more chances you'll have to win. These both end tonight at midnight EST time so don't wait too long to get in on the fun! All winners will be announced on the 3C blog August 2nd.

My cards today feature two of the new sets by Anita Jeram; Just Add Snow and Mice Lights. On this first card I cut the second baby rabbit off of the main stamp in the Just Add Snow set, making it its own stamp that I could then mask in front of the larger image along with the small snowball. The rabbit with the completed snowman was also masked to be in front of the others as well, pulling them all in close for this playful winter scene. I colored in a bright, clear day with a blanket of fresh snow on the ground. I even added snow to the branches of the tall pine tree that I colored in, using a white Sharpie for this extra bit of detail. 


My second card features the super cute Mice Lights set, where the scene is already put together for you. The only additional images that I added where a few extra lights laying out in front of that tangled mess of cords. I stuck with a similar color palette to what I used on my set of indoor scene cards that I made for the blog hop so that they would all look like one cohesive set. I also did my best to have the carpeting fade to white so that the sentiment would really pop down at the bottom of the card. A sprinkling of shiny sequins and glossy accents on the lights add just the right amount of sparkle and shine to this fun Christmas card. :)   

Have a wonderful day!
