Christmas Poinsettias – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

It’s double the fun with a combination of challenges today. I’ve used the sketch from the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge and combined it with Colour Palette #32 .

I’ve added masking with Crumb Cake ink using the houndstooth background and then layered with a Timber embossed Crumb Cake piece of Cardstock. Layering tone on tone provides dimension.

I then added some fussy cut flowers and die cut leaves. For the sprigs with berries I die cut them from White Cardstock and used Stampin’ Blends to colour them in. The Ringed with Nature stamp set has been getting lots of use in my craft room as has the hybrid embossing folder and dies. There are so many elements which can be used in a variety of ways and I’ve even added a tree ring at the base of my floral arrangement on this card.

I hope you have fun this Christmas Eve as you prepare for Christmas day.

Love & Warmth – Horse & Sleigh Bundle

Over the past few days I had the pleasure of presenting at the Great International Craft Show Series 17 – GICS17 for short. This is an online crafting event which encompasses all types of craft and the Live event is free to attend. I conducted a class a day which was loads of fun. There was a Christmas theme and I had just received my One Horse Open Sleigh suite so it was just ideal for this event.

This suite is part of our Online Exclusives products and the entire range can be viewed in our Online Store. We’ve got lots of stamps, dies, papers, embellishments and kits to suit everyone. I’ve had some fun creating with this particular suite and I particularly love the horse & sleigh image. It’s just reminiscent of images you see in storybooks and Christmas cards.

I’ve followed along with the layout at Freshly Made Sketches #FMS594.

Although this image is great for colouring, I set out to create a card for those who may not like colouring so much. With some paper piecing the sleigh just came to life. Paper Piecing is such a simple and effective technique pretty much taking us back to Primary School days of cutting and pasting.

Watch the video below to see how I created this card, sharing some tips to help you along the way.

Nested Friends Anniversary Card – #FMS590

The Nested Friends stamp set didn’t have my heart at first glance. However, I liked the variety of sentiments in the set and ended up ordering it. I can tell you, I have got my money’s worth out of this set, especially with this bird, using it so many times.

I created a background for my card with Versamark ink which was heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I blended Misty Moonlight ink around the edges. Adding this to a card base which I applied the same technique of blending created depth for this tone on tone background.

My card was been inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. To form the strips I used the Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This is a great sketch to use up those scrap pieces of patterned paper or cardstock I know you have lying around.

This pack of 12″ x 12″ papers is a bumper pack with 48 sheets in it. Usually selling for $53, during our June Designer Series Paper sale you can get it for $45.05.

The bird was stamped in Daffodil Delight and I added some detail with Watercolor Pencils. I used Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Balmy Blue and Early Espresso.

The berries and leaves were die cut from Basic White Cardstock and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Some extra shading was added with an Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. The smaller Soft Sea Foam die cut leaves were also individually highlighted the same way.

A small sentiment was added to flow in with the arrangement of sprigs whilst not detracting from the pretty paper.
