Christmas in July with Donna Mikasa

July 10, 2017

Throughout the month of July, we’ve invited some fabulous guest designers to visit here on our blog. They are sure to inspire us all to get a jumpstart on our Christmas creations. Join us over the three weeks as these wonderful guests feature our classic Christmas stamps and dies. And just when your Christmas crafting mojo is kicking in, we will be here in August to share with you all of our NEW Christmas products!

Please join us in welcoming our first guest designer, the talented Donna Mikasa!

Hello! I’m so excited to be spending “Christmas in July” here on the Penny Black blog! I’ve been stamping for many years and have always loved Penny Black’s trademark hedgehogs and everyone’s favorite snowman, Snowy. It’s never too early to start on Christmas projects, and Penny Black’s line of stamps, dies, and papers will have you crafting a winter wonderland!

Well, speaking of Snowy and a winter wonderland, just take a peek at what Donna has for us today…

After stamping, coloring, and die cutting Snowy, Donna has added him to one of her trademark inked backgrounds. His bright green scarf pops against the soft blue background and die cut trees, 51-173 In the Winter. If it’s hot where you live, this happy winter scene will have you cooling off in no time.
