Day 10 of Martin’s Mayhem #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is a sketch challenge. I drew inspiration from the snowflake picture on the sketch itself to create my card. We all know each snowflake is unique and my snowflakes today are one of a kind because they are Rainbow Glimmer snowflakes.
The Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper provided my background for this card. I used a sponge dauber to highlight the raised areas of the paper with Seaside Spray. This gave a subtle hint of colour to this beautiful paper.
I die cut a couple of snowflake clusters from Rainbow Glimmer paper and cut them apart to work with the sketch.
The sentiment was mounted on a frame from the Stitched so Sweetly dies. I embossed this with the Seabed embossing folder as I love the detail on this.
A few sequins add a bit of extra shine to this card to balance with the softness of the vellum background.
Welcome to our Stampers Showcase Blog Hop for August. So glad that you could join me here in Melbourne, Australia today. With the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue in hand, we are ready to inspire you with some beautiful projects using the products in there.
I’ve been having fun creating with the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack. I created a few cards the other day focusing more on the Cherry Cobbler in this pack. You can view those here. Today, I’ve gone for a more neutral colour scheme with the lovely shades of green and gray tones.
The background DSP could have worked with a number of colours but I really loved how it stood out on the Basic Gray cardstock. I embossed the smaller Memories & More card with the Old World Paper embossing folder which added some beautiful texture to this piece. The wording from the Christmas Carol, Twelve Days of Christmas, is such a lovely detail on this card.
The bold sentiment has been fussy cut from another card in this pack. I love all the detail that can be achieved by cutting these cards and using them in various ways. I’ve added a panel of Plush Poinsetta Specialty DSP which adds the soft touch of vellum with texture.
On this next card, again I chose texture with the beautiful Parisian Flourish Embossing folder. The leaves and bauble stickers have been mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The laser cut gold leaves mimic the leaves from the sticker sheet which are included in the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack. A gold cord ribbon completes this arrangement.
You get several sentiments to choose from and the gold sentiment is a simple and pretty addition to this card.
I hope you have been inspired to create some projects using the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Cards. The products I have used on these cards are listed at the bottom of this post.

I’ve got a fancy fold card to share with you today. I was asked by one of my friends to make a 30th birthday card for her daughter. I thought a fancy fold card would be a nice touch for this special occasion. The Arrow Fold Card is one I had seen but not tried and I thought I’d give it a go. surprisingly, it is a very easy fold to master.
I chose my card base colour first and then my Designer Series Paper. After this, I worked all my elements around it. The Peony Garden DSP looks so pretty against the Purple Posy cardstock.
I coloured the flowers using all the purple shades adding a touch of Dark So Saffron in the centre. The leaves were coloured in Mint Macaron and Just Jade. I added a little bit of Light Old Olive to add more shading.
To enhance the bouquet of blossoms, I added more die cut leaves and flowers. The Plush Poinsettia Specialty DSP is beautiful and I love the softness it adds to projects. I die cut my small flowers from it and then shaded them with the Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend which picked up the embossed section of the DSP.
The inside of the card has been kept simple with a DSP sheet that could be written over.I added the ’30’ die cut from the beautiful Velveteen Paper using the Playful Alphabet Dies. These dies are a must have in your craft room as you can make any words and numbers so they are perfect for any occasion.
