Cup of Cheer Day 19 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

Although it’s summer during the Christmas season in Australia, a cup of hot cocoa is always reminiscent of the festive season. There is something warm and homely about having a warm cup of cocoa and some marshmallows sitting with your family.

I’ve used the TeaCup dies to create the festive cup that hold our warm cocoa. Some cookies from the Nothing’s Better than stamp set makes me feel like I can smell the chocolate in the room!

Watch the video below for details on how to create this card for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge.

Love & Warmth Day 18 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I’ve gone for a non-traditional colour palette for this sketch in the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge.

I was a little bit slow to start with this sketch as I was having some trouble what to do with that centre section. After I heat embossed the candy cane background I wanted a nice contrast. This came with some strips cut from the Tea Boutique Memories & More Cards which I angled for the centre part of the sketch.

To tone the Parakeet Party down I added a strip of Sweet Sorbet which was embossed with the Wintry Embossing Folder. This adds a touch of texture behind those busy front panels.

A simple heart stamped and fussy cut from the Ringed with Nature stamp set was just the perfect finishing touch for this project.

Rustic Christmas Banner Day 17 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

What a beautiful colour combination we have for this seventeenth challenge of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. Have you been playing along? I’m having so much fun with each challenge. I encourage you to try these for yourselves and have fun making a batch of Christmas cards.

From today until the 28th of November I have a fabulous ordering special which I am offering. This is not a promotion by Stampin’ Up! Orders can be placed online or by contacting me on Ph: 0404 255 001 or Email: stampingflair@yahoo.com

I love sending out goodies to my customers and I hope you take advantage of this special.

Orders of $250 will also qualify for Stampin’ Rewards.

This card turned out somewhat rustic which is just what I love. As always, there is a starting point and this time it was the banner stamped in Crumb Cake.

I highlighted the edges with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo to give it some added definition. Then, using a mask I blended Crumb Cake ink very lightly over the white space.

Some Flat Jingle Bell Trinkets and a Linen bow add fullness to this banner.

For today’s card I had to become extra creative as I didn’t have many stamps or dies with stars in them. I love this #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge which is making me put on my thinking cap!

First thing I did was have a squiz through my Designer Series Paper.This gave me a few options and a base to work with. This set of Black paper in the Lights Aglow DSP is chic and has a lovely elegant look to it.

A beautiful Distressed Gold Paper border adds definition between the two different patterns of DSP. Gold ribbon and a mix of embellishments bring this card together without taking away from the starry look of it.

Would you like to make this card? If you live in Australia, please get in touch with me and I can help you with a selection of products. A full product list is at the bottom of this post.

Finished in a Bow Day 15 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I’ve created a simple card for Day 15 in our #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge with a focus on a bow.

I used the Celebrate Everything Host Designer Series Paper with some trees fussy cut and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You can choose this paper with your Stampin’ Rewards when your order total (or workshop total) is over $250.

The ribbon was coloured with a Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend to finish my card off with a bow. I hope you give this card a try. It’s a fun sketch and quick to create.

Step into Christmas Day 14 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

For our Step into Christmas theme of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge I have pretty much taken a literal look at this.

One of the first decorations that go up in our home is the wreath on the front door and any visitor has to step through our front door to come in, hence the ‘step into Christmas’. I stamped a background using Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce ink and then die cut the wreaths from this piece of Cardstock. I felt the wreath really pops against the Black timber background.

https://stampingflair.c#30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge, Martin's Mayhem challenge for Christmas, Cottage Wreaths bundle, non-traditional Christmas, Black card, Stampin' Up!, SU

A few splatters of White embossing and a simple sentiment completes this card which I would say has a bit of a modern twist with it’s Black base.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
