Winners for Challenge #280 - Christmas in July

Crafters are known for their early start on Christmas projects! And why not? Christmas projects are so much fun to do and give you so much scope for your imagination and mojo! We loved that you all put your jingle bells on in July (and August) and got into a festive mood for us!

Without further ado, I want to introduce you to our winners! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Jolanda Johnstone

Jolanda featured some beloved past colours and some glittery snowflakes to get into that holiday spirit! Blues and silvers make a great Christmas palette and Jolanda found some creative ways to use it: dry emboss it with dies, heat emboss on blue with silver embossing powder, brayer blue ink onto a piece of white DSP with a silver foil accent that resists the ink, use a specialty silver foil, and, last but not least, die cut on glimmer paper! The result is stunning!

Our Featured Artist is: Cindy Major

Cindy's stunning corner easel card is almost more of a diorama, as there is so much to feast your eyes on. And when I say feast, I mean look at all the festive colour and joy! The red accents are heightened by that delicious, antique-looking pale mint colour and the background papers and images really continue that theme! The Design Team love the tag idea for addressing it to friends and family when you're ready to send it out! That's the way to start the holiday crafting season with a project full of inspiration, Cindy! Thank you!
