Little Christmas – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

Merry Christmas! As we remember the birth of Jesus, may you enjoy the blessings of the season.

I’ve finally arrived at Day 30 of the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge . Our theme today is Little Christmas and I’ve gone with smaller images and elements to create my card.

The small die cut squares were stamped with the stocking image from the Sending Cheer stamp set which had the small star images. This was repeated in a simple design.

The colours for my card have been inspired by the theme at Global Design Project #gdp426.

For the background I added Textured Paste through the Foursquare Mask for a delicate pattern. Small layered holly leaves in black and Pool Party add a finishing touch to this sweet and simple card.

I hope you have a very enjoyable day.

Christmas Gifts Sketch – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I thought I may struggle with this sketchfor the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge However, with a little bit of thought I was able to recreate it using the presents from the Beary Cute stamp set.

The image was stamped in Night of Navy ink on Fluid 100 Cardstock then watercoloured with Tahitian Tide and Night of Navy ink refills and a Water Painter. I was so happy with how this turned out as it was something a little bit different.

Each of the images was fussy cut and then adhered onto the Delightful Floral Designer Series Paper. I die cut the sections of the tree from the Merriest Trees dies and then blended Parakeet Party ink onto it before curving the edges with a Bone Folder. With the Merriest Trees dies you can can create different sized trees using the layered dies.

I stamped and cut apart the sentiment from the Joy to You stamp set to work in with the sketch. This stamp set has some large sentiments which are perfect as focal points but can also be cut apart to create customised sentiments.

Peace and Joy Sketch Card- 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

This card for the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge was a ‘bitsa’ card – it was made from bits I had already made up in my stash. The only fresh element I made up was the image of the bird and the sentiment which were from the So Very Merry stamp.

#30DayChristmasCardmaking Challenge, 2023 Day 18, Card sketch, card layout

This is such a great sketch and I had some fun adding elements from my spare parts to create it.

The houndstooth background was created using the Foursquare Decorative Masks and then I shifted it slightly to get a shadow effect. I had a day where I just went through creating a bunch of backgrounds using our masks and this one was perfect for this card.

I coloured the sentiment panel with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends instead of stamping on Old Olive Cardstock. This is a technique I like to use as it provides a softer background which I like on some projects.

The wreath was stamped and die cut and then layered on 3 layers of a the same wreath die cut from Old Olive Cardstock. The coloured Cardstock underneath provided depth and shadow. It also made the wreath nice and stable and I didn’t require Stampin’ Dimensionals to prop it up.

I hope you ‘ve enjoyed this rustic Christmas card and you can find most of the products in my Online Store. Shop by clicking on any of the images below or by getting in touch with me.

Join me tonight at 7:30 pm on my YouTube channel as I continue with my 12 Weeks of Christmas series.

Have a lovely weekend.

Cosy Christmas – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

The image that came to mind when I saw this Cosy Christmas theme was immediately this barn from the retired Christmas Barn stamp set. It shows warmth and is so inviting.

This card started with a piece of the striped Misty Moonlight DSP which I had layered on Basic White. Planning to use it on a project a while back, it didn’t suit but it worked with this one and I was able to add my pieces around it.

I used some Watercolour Pencils to colour areas of the barn so that the beautiful detail of the stamped image could be seen. For the wreath I used the Direct to Stamp colouring technique with Stampin’ Write Markers.

The barn image could be replaced with the Shop the Town stamp set #162068 which coordinates with the Les Shoppes dies #161777. This set is currently on our Last Chance list for $33.60 (was $42).

The trees from the same bundle were layered, so that it looks like they are around the property. I added some scrap Pecan Pie Cardstock pieces which look a bit like a fence and work well with the design. Of course, this card just had to have Linen Thread to make it complete.

I hope you have enjoyed my #nostalgicnovember with a delve into my archives. My blog posts will continue through December (with cards I’m creating this month for this challenge and others). I’ve got loads to share.

Cup of Christmas – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

#30DayChristmasCardmakingChallege, 2023, Day 12 Far too Merry, Cup of Christmas Stamp set

This card was so much fun to create for the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge . I don’t know what my favourite part was – the cloud cream, the timber cinnamon quills, dusting of hot chocolate or just the warmth and cosy feeling this card exudes.

#30DayChristmasCardmakingChallege, 2023, Day 12 Far too Merry, Cup of Christmas Stamp set, Christmas Card with cocoa mugs, Foursquare Decorative Masks

I used the Cup of Christmas stamps and dies which is a retired set however the Gift of Giving stamp set would be a suitable alternative to create a similar look.

For the cinnamon quills, I die cut the candy cane from Pecan Pie Cardstock 3 times, embossed each panel with the Timber Embossing Folder and layered the candy canes together. Then I added some depth with Early Espresso ink.

#30DayChristmasCardmakingChallege, 2023, Day 12 Far too Merry, Cup of Christmas Stamp set, Christmas Card with cocoa mugs, Foursquare Decorative Masks

The cloud punch is the perfect shape for some frothy cream and I added some chocolate dusting with the dots from the Perched in a Tree stamp set. I stamped and dabbed (my technical term!) the stamp to creat a bit of a mottled look across the cream.

No Peeking – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

There’s just something about the Christmas in the Making stamp set that makes me happy. The nostalgic images just bring a smile to my face and this particular image with the cat was perfect for our No Peeking day for the 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge.

The lady looks like she is holding that present well away from the cat who is giving it ‘the look’ and wants to just get into it. Coloured with Stampin’ Blends this image comes to life. For a muted background with a subtle pattern I used the Hello, Irresistible Designer Series Paper.

#30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge 2023, Day 11 No Peeking, Christmas in the Making, Merry Wishes stamp set, Stampin' Up!, Cable Knit Embossing Folder, Christmas card with cat, 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

The sentiment is from another retired stamp set, Oh What Fun and I just had to dig out the Cable Knit Embossing Folder as it just tied in with the whole scene.
