In the absence of anything related to Letters to Santa in my current stash, I’ve had to pull out my retired Signs of Santa stamp set to create this card for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. Do you use your retired sets much? I have quite a stash although I do sell quite a bit. There are certain stamp sets that I keep – for occasions such as this!
You could substitute this Santa with the Santa’s Delivery Bundle. The dies from this bundle are reduced during our Last Chance sale.
I fussy cut around the Santa image then I die cut 3 layers of the Santa from Basic Black Cardstock, layering all 3 and the stamped image on top. I like this shadow effect and it also makes the image more stable.
I coloured in the Santa with Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends and his belt with a store bought Gold gel pen. The background candy cane stripe Designer Series Paper gives this an extra fun touch. This paper is on sale and I’ve ordered an extra pack because I love it so much. Have you stocked up on your favourites?

Do you love some Christmas Karaoke? From November to December our home is surrounded by Christmas carols. We love it. Cassidy has her Spotify playlist, we listen to carols in the car, it’s on all the time. For the #3oDayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I’ve used one of the sentiments that Stampin’ Up! have which will get you singing all day.
I created a cute background using a variety of stamps and then layered all my images on top of it.
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year and I hope you enjoy creating beautiful handmade cards to give your friends and family while participating in some Christmas karaoke yourself. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to place an order.

It is the last day of November and I’m only upto Day 23 of the #3oDayChristmasCardMakingChallenge but I definitely will be finishing them all. Have you played along with any of the challenges? Let me know in the comments of this post. They are so much fun and it’s got me thinking of different ways to use some of my products.
I stamped a bacground with the Dry Brush stamp set which is one of our background stamps. This gives a lovely subtle texture. I used my Stamparatus to help me get a nice even image with this large stamp. By using the Stamparatus, it helps you re-stamp any parts of the image that may have been missed.
This was then die cut with one of the dies from the Basic Borders die which gave it a lovely edge.
I used the trees from the Trees for Sale stamp set and fussy cut them. The ribbon was twirled and added to the card with some Tear and Tape.
When I saw the colour challenge for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I immediately thought of summer. Living in Melbourne, we generally get to have a warm Christmas and I chose to feature the Sunkissed stamp set.
This stamp set is perfect for our Aussie Christmases with it’s beachy images. I repeatedly stamped the small shell image on Shimmer White Cardstock. Then I did some simple watercolouring with our challenge colours of Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide and Daffodil Delight. This formed a border for my slimline card.
For the top half of the card, I chose a large sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set which was heat embossed in White. Some gold ribbon was added to make this card a little more festive whilst looking summery.
The Sunkissed stamp set is on our Last Chance List which is effective 1st December. If you love it then add it to your order today. Last Chance products are only available while supplies last.

This theme is always a tricky one for me in the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. What do you give the Bah Humbug in your life? I thought perhaps an Easter card! However, it is a Christmas cardmaking challenge and I’ve gone simplistic.
I chose the smallest tree I could find (no big pine trees for Mr. Scrooge), with a simple monochromatic colour scheme for this miserable soul! Each of the square layers has been embossed so the card isn’t too drab – just because I couldn’t help myself.
I chose a sentiment that is quite neutral with no reference to Christmas and die cut it with the Christmas Banners Dies. By adjusting the placement of the die I could make it a shorter height.

I have let the Designer Series Paper do the hard work for this theme in our #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. The Lights Aglow Specialty Paper already had the shine so I just added a few extras to create this card with Sparkle and Shine.
The Distressed Gold Specialty Paper is a very cost effective way to add some glitz to your card. It’s also lightweight so it doesn’t make your card too bulky for postage. A sentiment from the Hope & Peace stamp set embossed in Gold adds a little more shine.
