We are over the halfway mark of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge and it’s another sketch challenge. My card ended nowhere near where it started. The paper, colour combination – everything – is completely opposite to what I started with. Does that ever happen to you? You start off with one idea but inspiration just takes you elsewhere. So we’re now having the Christmas Blues – shades of pretty blues.
My card began with the choice of Designer Series Paper – specifically a non-Christmas DSP. The Whale of a Time DSP had this beautiful blue speckled sheet which reminded me of winter and snow. This was going to be perfect for my background.
The Feels Like Frost DSP has always been a favourite of mine with it’s scenic images on one side and silver foil accents on the other. An image of a field on the paper made me choose the deer from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley for my focal image.
I created a small strip of paper at the back to coordinate with my card. Using scraps of Seaside Spray cardstock, I cut varying widths and made an accent strip at the back.
Join me tomorrow for another fun card in this series. I hope you’re finding lots of inspiration in the cards I’m sharing.

Today’s card for the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is spotlighting the Christmas Tree. Any type of Christmas celebration generally has a Christmas tree as part of it’s decorative theme. It might be small and adorn a table as a centre piece, it might be huge and sit in centre of a city or any size in between where it is enjoyed in our homes. Beautifully decorated, we enjoy many beautiful memories around this traditional Christmas symbol.
My background for this card came together with a selection of pine trees from the Coming Home and Snow Front stamp sets. Then I decided on a colour scheme starting with Real Red. Don’t ask me why I chose that! Sometimes my brain just goes in the complete opposite direction of what something is meant to be – in this case green!
I stamped the trees in a mix of colours, using Stampin’ Blends to colour in the line images. This created a nice sheet of Christmas tree patterned paper which was just what I wanted for my card.
The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley had the perfect sentiment for this challenge.
I added some of the Real Red striped Designer Series Paper which is included in this product medley and layered it on a Misty Moonlight label.
The main Christmas tree is a sticker from The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley which I mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals, adding a star embellishment which is included in this medley as well.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you are enjoying this month of festive cards.

Only 31 days until Christmas! Are you filled with excitement, anticipation or a little bit anxious over everything that needs to be completed in the coming weeks? Well, you have come to the right place to get some inspiration for Christmas projects and also some relaxing ‘me’ time while you hop through the blogs.
It’s ‘anything goes’ Christmas style so we are going to have some fun with our projects. My cards feature the all inclusive Most Wonderful Time Product Medley. I have used just one of the designs in the Designer Series Paper Pack. You get 8 sheets each of 6 double sided designs.
I stamped the tree in Golden Glitz Delicata ink and coloured with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Then I added some Ice Stampin’ Glitter. This adds so much sparkle to this tree and lots of texture.
My next card features another simple layout.
The Product Medley comes with 12 gold foil card fronts and I cut one of these to form a horizontal strip across the centre of the card. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. The Most Wonderful Time product medley provides you with so many options for creating a variety of projects in a fun, all-inclusive kit.
You are currently visiting Rochelle Laird-Smith of Stamping Flair in Australia. I hope you have been inspired by this beautiful product medley.

Welcome to Stamping Flair. I am blog hopping with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the Stampin’ Dreams Facebook Group.
The theme this month is Card/Project Kits. Stampin’ Up! offers a variety of kits both in the Annual and Holiday catalogues. You can browse the entire range of kits here. Kits can be used as suggested or altered. With the stamp sets and accessories provided they can cross over to other projects as well which make them versatile.
My cards today use the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley from the Holiday catalogue. While a kit is centred around a specific project, a product medley gives the crafter a whole lot of products to create anything you like.
Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes:
* 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear blocks sold separately)
* 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12 gold foil card fronts, 4 each of 3 designs
* 6 sticker sheets, 2 sheets each of 3 designs
* Gold/white tinsel trim 9.1 m
* 58 adhesive-backed gold faceted stars
* 6-piece Most Wonderful Time Dies (use with a die-cutting & embossing machine)
This card uses the some of the products from this product medley to create a different colour palette with Seaside Spray and Silver. I masked the stamp with the image of presents, using a post-it-note and inked the bow up with Seaside Spray to create a border on the card base. The tree has been heat embossed in Silver and coloured with Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends.
I used the Christmas Countdown stamp set for the stamped Whisper White layer. Then I added Night of Navy and Silver Foil strips together with the beautiful, sparkly organdy ribbon for the deer to sit on.
For my second card, I stayed with the colour palette of the product medley – Basic Black, Gold foil, Old Olive, Real Red and Whisper White. For the layers, I added different strips of Designer Series Paper and stamped the sentiment on one of the included stickers. The presents were fussy cut from a sheet of DSP. The pretty gold tinsel trim and star that adorns the top of the tree are also included in this medley. This is a value pack of products that you will be able to create so many Christmas projects and cards with.
