Jingle All the Way Inspiration: Are You Naughty or Nice? Sandy Oddleigh painting by Leigh!

Happy July Creative Friends!
Today is the last day to join in on our Christmas in July Challenge, Jingle All the Way Challenge❄️
All the deets and the linky party are in the MAIN CHALLENGE POST❄️

Are You Naughty or Nice?
painting by Leigh
  
My Jingle All the Way finale inspiration for you today is another one of my paintings, this one features "Naughty or Nice?" Sandy Oddleigh!
 
Sandy Oddleigh is so adorable with her rosy cheeks and totally sassy as she mischievously asks you the big question....
Are You Naughty or Nice?
Is Santa bringing you a present this year or a nice bag of coal tied up with a pretty bow?
 
 
I created this digital painting in Adobe Fresco with "Naughty or Nice?" Sandy Oddleigh and the Holly Sprigs are from the Merry Craftmas Sandy Oddleigh Wreath set.  I gave her a fun Grinch-esque spiral background in shades of green speckled with snowflakes and added the senti also included in the "Naughty or Nice?" Sandy Oddleigh set.

Jingle All the Way Inspiration: Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand 3D SVG Cutz by Val!

Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand
A Charming Christmas
3D SVG Cutz
by Val
  
 Today's Jingle All the Way inspiration is a fabulous Snowflake Ornament Stand by LeighSBDesigner Val featuring the Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand SVG Cutz set from the "A Charming Christmas" Winter 2021 Collection❄️
 

 
Val used her Silhouette Portrait 3 electronic cutting machine and cut out the elements included in the Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand SVG Cutz set from Hobby Craft Silver Glitter Card.


To construct the stand Val cut out 4 of the stand pieces and adhered them together to form the 3D stand.  She then cut four of the Snowflake Ornament pieces and adhered them together to create the dimensional hanging ornament which she then hung inside the stand.  She adhered one end of a length of white cotton by sandwiching it inside the ornament as she glued it and then sandwiched the other end to Snowflake Topper of the Ornament Stand.
 

 
The Elegant Snowflake Ornament Stand SVG Cutz can be customized to suit any decor for your holiday festivities this season and they make wonderful magical gifts too!  Best part is the stand and snowflake can fold flat for mailing as extra special Christmas cards too!

Jingle All the Way Inspiration: A Charming Christmas 3D Winter Snowman Ornament by Leigh

A Charming 3D Winter Snowman Ornament
by Leigh
  
My Jingle All the Way inspiration for you today is another wonderful whimsical snowman ornament featuring SVG Cutz from the "A Charming Christmas" Winter 2021 Collection❄️
 
 
 
On July 14 I shared the ornament on the right and now today is all about the one on the left!
I used the Snowman Charms Lace SVG Cutz and Charming Christmas Ornament Layered SVG Cutz to make both of these whimsical 3D Snowman ornaments.


Using my Silhouette Cameo 4 electronic cutting machine I cut 2 of the snowflake overlay frame included in the Charming Christmas Ornament Layered SVG Cutz set, one from heavy weight white cardstock and the second from pretty blue glitter paper and the matching mat layer included in the set out of a sheet of snowflake acetate.  I then adhered the cuts together with the acetate sandwiched between them.
 
 
 This whimsically quaint Snowman Charm is one of the 2 charms included in the Snowman Charms Lace SVG Cutz set.  To make this cutie I first cut the lace overlay frame out of blue glitter paper and the second out of silver mirror cardstock and paper pieced the silver mirror card cuts for his hat, eyes, cheek and stones.  I then applied clear dimensional glaze to all the silver pieces and Viva Pearl 3D gel in glossy orange to give the snowman his fun carrot nose.
 
 
I also cut the Snowflake overlay included in the Charming Christmas Ornament Layered SVG Cutz set out of the silver mirror card and decorated the snowflake topper with the negative cut of the snowflake and coated in with clear 3D glaze as well.
 
 
I then adhered the Snowman Charm to the the Snowflake acetate and then punched a tiny hole at the top of the snowflake and added the jump ring to hang the Snowman Ornament from a silver swirl hanger.  Then completed my wonderful ornament with a pretty tiny bow I made from white and silver ribbon.

Christmas Baubles
Slimline SVG Cutz Card
by Val
  
 Today's Jingle All the Way inspiration is a wonderful festive slimline card by LeighSBDesigner Val featuring a slimline SVG Cutz card from the "A Charming Christmas" Winter 2021 Collection❄️
 
 
 
Val used the fabulous Christmas Baubles Slimline Make-a-Card Layered SVG Cutz set to create her festive slimline card.  There are two card versions included in the set and this one is done using version #1 which has the lace overlay cut out design as a separate layer plus a matching mat layer as well as the slimline card base.  Val used her Silhouette Portrait 3 to cut the lace overlay and the mat layer from Canson mixed media card and the slimline card base from heavy weight white cardstock.  She coloured the mat layer with Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink and adhered the lace overlay to it then everything to the folded slimline card base.  She then embellished the card front with Crystals Stickles glitter and clear dimensional glaze gel.
