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.
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.
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.
Have a great weekend. I hope you can join me at the Great International Craft Show Online Classroom at 2pm and 3:30 pm tomorrow for some more Christmas crafting inspiration.

When I saw this colour combo for a Christmas card, my first thought was, ‘what on earth’? Yet again, the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge has me thinking outside the box and I’m really pleased with my final creation which uses my favourite Perched in a Tree bundle.
I coloured the bird with a combination of Stampin’ Blends and Watercolour Pencils as the pencils didn’t have a Petal Pink. This combination colouring came out really well and love how the bird turned out.
The sentiment was heat embossed in Gold and then I used the Aspen Dies to cut out the leaf. Those cute Gold Holly Leaves are discounted on our Last Chance list and you can get them for $5.30 (originally $13.25) while supplies last – bargain!
The Perched in a Tree bundle will carryover however products will be sold individually. You can currently get it at a bundle price which will save you 10%.

I’m playing along with the Colour Inkspirations Challenge CI132. With the accompanying photo, it was hard not to go along with the beachy theme.
Instead I went with what seems to be my next favourite, the bird from the Perched in a Tree stamp set. I heat embossed the image in Silver and then coloured it in with Watercolour Pencils. I used colours that were similar to the challenge for this part of my card.
With the sentiment banner I really wanted to add a bit of a floral image so I went with the Fitting Florets collection. I coloured the image with Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.
In this photo you can see the pretty Snowflake Vellum oval which adds a lovely soft touch behind the bird.
Thank you for stopping by and make sure to come by later when I’ll have another card for you for Day 7 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge.
Welcome to Day 17 of my Sketchtember Challenge and today I’m watercolouring. This is one of my favourite techniques. Today is also the last day to get freebies with my ordering special.
My card has been inspired by the colour palette at the Colour Inkspirations Challenge #129
I watercoloured the bird using Basic Gray, Starry Sky and Mango Melody with the 2 smaller Water Painters. Then I fussy cut it and layered it onto a bird die cut from Basic Black Cardstock to create a shadow effect.
The Organic Beauty background die cut was matted onto a White card panel to which I added the stamped diagonal White panel across.
Between the top and bottom panels I added 3 strips of Cardstock (I used scrap pieces for this). This added depth and contrast while still keeping the tone-on-tone look. Around this I added the Silver Mesh Ribbon which I folded in half to fit on this narrow strip. I couldn’t go past those Basic Gray Matte Dots to intersperse with the silver embossing to add the finishing touch to this card.

Shimmery White Embossing Paste is one product I don’t use much of and when it came to this card I just had to add it for just that touch of Christmas glimmer. This is one of 3 cards I created on my Creative Escape FB Live this week using the Perched in a Tree bundle.
