Snowman Season Colour Challenge Card

Day 18 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is a Colour Challenge using Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand. A scarf and beanie in these colours seemed festive so I chose the Snowman Season stamp set for my card.

This snowman is such a happy chap and even with minimal colouring, he really creates a cheerful card. I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects for the snow. Once applied, this needs to be left to dry so this is best done at the end. The Sahara Sand matte label has been cut in half for layering.

The Gold detailed Mint Macaron paper is from the Ornate Garden DSP and it adds a lovely festive touch to this card. Some elements from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack in Cherry Cobbler bring this colour palette together. The Poppy Parade buttons were coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card.

Stampers Showcase Blog Hop – Winter Wonderland

Hi friends,

Thank you for visiting me today. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Blind Bight, which is in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been busy creating Christmas cards for classes and orders over the past few weeks and we have quite a few stamp sets that would fit the Winter Wonderland theme.

I chose the Let it Snow suite. The specialty Designer Series Paper in this suite is so much fun and I love the unusual colour combination. One side of the papers have glitter and really make for fun projects. 


Let it Snow suite, Snowman handmade card

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the gingham background. This allowed me to re-stamp if any of the checks hadn’t stamped well. Then I die cut the label shape. The snowman has been stamped in Tuxedo Black ink with the hat being punched directly from the Designer Series Paper. Some images on the DSP can be punched out, making it really easy to make a quick batch of cards.

The scarf is from the Playful Penguins stamp set which I fussy cut. I coloured the carrot and buttons with Pumpkin Pie and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers, adding Shimmery Crystal Effects on the buttons to give them a bit of gloss.

Joy of Sets October Blog Hop – Same Stamp 3 Ways

Hi Friends,

I’m very excited to be taking part for the first time in The Joy of Sets Blog Hop and it’s a big one to start off with! We are featuring one stamp set 3 ways. I had to put my thinking cap on for this as I wanted to coordinate my projects yet have them different. 

The Joy of Sets - One Stamp 3 Ways

I couldn’t go past the very cute Snowman Season stamp set with it’s 3 very cute snowmen, making it ideal for 3 cute projects.

Snowman Season Stamp Sets

All 3 projects coordinate with a common colour of Balmy Blue and a distessed look. My first card has been embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Snowman Stamp set used 3 ways to create vintage Christmas projects

Then I added Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Early Espresso using sponged and sponge daubers over the embossing leaving sections of white. Balmy Blue ink was sponged on next. I have also added Embossing Paste for added texture. The Snowfall Accents Puff Paint is so much fun to work with. It’s runny when you apply it and then heat it up with a heat gun and it puffs up – magic! The sentiment is from the Wrapped in Plaid stamp set and has also been embossed and had the edges distressed with Sahara Sand ink.

Coordinated Christmas Products using Snowman Season Stamp set

I’ve incorporated the snowman punch to create this fun tag and used various elements from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit to dress him up.

My next card uses the fun snow globe shaker domes. These create such interactive projects and are so much fun for the receiver as well. The little snowman has been stamped and fussy cut and set on a scene created with the Still Scenes Dies.

Esad 2019 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop


I’m so glad that you have stopped by my blog today. A Group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook group are blog hopping showcasing the beautiful products in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalogue. 

ESAD Blog Hop Holiday Catalogue 2019

Let it Snow Suite

I’ve chosen one of the cute suites which I really love. The Let it Snow Suite (Item #153386) is on Pages 18-21 of the catalogue. This suite has several products in it and includes a very cute Snowman Builder punch, Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and 2 sets of stamps – Snowman Season and Tiny Keepsakes (Item #150460). The coordinating colours of Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White give it a real wintry feel. I know it’s not your typical Aussie Christmas but somehow I love snowmen at Christmastime. This suite just adds to the Christmas magic with it’s sparkly Designer Series paper and pretty colours. 

Snowman Christmas card with matching gift box

My card features one of the cute snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set. Simply stamp and punch out – it’s that easy. I fussy cut a beanie and his shawl is from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit (Item #150425). This kit comes complete with 60 stitched felt accents in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce and Real Red, 96 enamel shapes, 36 felt snowballs, 1.8m of washi tape – lots of goodies to dress up your snowman and your projects. 

Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

The circle is punched out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. On top of that is one of the hidden gems in this catalogue – Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. LOVE IT! You will find this on the bottom right of Page 44. There are 2 designs which have a faux mercury glass finish. One is a speckled finish and the other is a cracked finish and they are stunning.

Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle

The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle which includes the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. For a variety of sentiments you really can’t go past this stamp set. It has you covered for all types of Christmas cards for family, friends, faith-based, fun, gift tags and even new year greetings – 18 stamps in all. 

Coordinate this card with this little gift box which is really quick to make and so cute decorated with the Let it Snow DSP.  I saw a version of it on Pinterest from Aural Models and adapted the way I made it. It’s a really fun pull out box and t’s got the element of surprise as it opens out in the opposite way to what you would normally expect. 

Cube Pull out gift box Easy to make

The box is quite easy to make.I embossed the Real Red cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and used Stampin’ Write Markers to create the multi-coloured sentiment.

Details for creating the box can be viewed HERE
