Hope you are doing well and grabbed a bargain yesterday with that fabulous stamp sale. I got in on it as well. Make sure you’re following my blog and my Facebook Page. I’ve got some fun coming up and you don’t want to miss out on it.
I’m on Day 21 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge (a little bit behind… I’m forgetting what day it is!)! It’s Classic Christmas theme. Oh my, so many choices with traditional red and green, nativity scenes, stars, pine trees, snow … the list is endless.
I went for a classic gold, cream and green colour scheme with a large poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals bundle as my main image. Just Jade has become my new favourite green and it is a beautiful Christmas green.
The poinsettia was heat embossed in Gold on Whisper White cardstock to stand out against the Very Vanilla background. I embossed the Vellum with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder. Then I brushed the end of the Versamark pad on the back of the paper. I chose the reverse side as this had more areas that were raised with the dry embossing. This made it easier to apply the Versamark.
The sentiment from the For Unto Us stamp set has been heat embossed in Gold as well. I love this sentiment stamp set because of the meaningful sentiments and the beautiful fonts. After consulting with my artistic director (my 17 year old daughter), and deciding the card needed a bit more colour, I die cut a circle from the Designer Series Paper, cut it in half and placed it at the back of the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed this card in this month long series. Can’t wait to share with you the next one.

Day 11 in the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge had us thinking about the flowers that surround us throughout the Christmas season. I couldn’t go past the Poinsettia Petals bundle and created some water coloured poinsettias for this challenge.
I die cut the 3 sizes of petals from Shimmery White cardstock and water coloured them using Real Red and Cherry Cobbler ink. Generally, I would use ink refills for this technique however, this time I inked up a Clear Block and used it like a palette.
Once I had painted my flowers I wanted a corner flourish for it to sit on so I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set to create this pretty corner.
A few silver stems and adds a lovely festive look to coordinate with the metallic-edge bow on top.

Welcome to the August New at SU Blog Hop featuring products from our new 2020 Mini Catalogue. You are currently visiting Stamping Flair in Melbourne.
This is my first project featuring the beautiful Poinsetta Place Suite. This suite has so many beautiful products that allow you to create several different styles of projects. The Designer Series Paper coordinates with Bumblebee, Garden Green, Old Olive, Real Red and Soft Suede so you get a lovely array of colours.
I’ve gone with neutral colours teamed with some gold for this Christmas card. The 3 different sizes of poinsettias were stamped in Versamark and embossed with Gold embossing powder. I love those Beaded Pearls in the centre which are part of the Poinsetta Place suite. They are so elegant.
There are 2 sizes of leaves and 2 dies in each – one to emboss and one which die cuts the leaf. I stamped the fern type leaf with in Garden Green on Whisper White cardstock then I went around the edges with Garden Green using a sponge dauber. The pine cones were coloured with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.
I added a die cut border from the Early Espresso sheet from the Festive Felt Sheet Combo. This comes in a pack 4 – Early Espresso, Just Jade, Real Red and Whisper White. I think I’m going to have a little bit of fun with these sheets and can’t wait to get more crafting done with them. For the background, I used the wood pattern in the Designer Series Paper and cut it at an angle, inspired by Narelle Farugia.
I hope my card inspires you to create some Christmas cards with this elegant suite. Products used on this card are listed at the bottom of this post. Click on the Next button to hop on to Joyce Whitman’s blog and see her beautiful project.
