Candy Cane Christmas – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

The creeator of this challenge – Martin Stone from Martin’s Mayhem, made me laugh with this challenge. As he has subsequently admitted, Feastive was meant to be Festive but due a slight typo, this changed the entire meaning of the challenge. However, I had already created a card along the ‘festive’ line and then had to reconfigure to go ‘feastive’!

I didn’t have many Christmas food stamp sets but the Sweet Candy Canes from last year’s Christmas was perfect. I used one of the candy canes to create a border along the bottom of the card.

Right now the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set and Candy Canes Dies are available on the Clearance Rack.

  • Sweet Candy Canes stamp set #159560 $27.26 (was $39)
  • Candy Canes dies #159569 $25.60 (was $61)

To create the leaves I blended a panel of White Cardstock with Parakeet Party, Garden Green and Shaded Spruce, Then I spritzed it with water and die cut several holly leaves from it. A large sentiment from the Joy to You stamp set completes this simple design.

Stamp your own Wreath Day 30 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

So we come to the last day of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. It’s been so much fun. Today’s theme is Wreathed in Joy.

I used the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies and traced around it with pencil. Then I stamped the leaves along this circle. I really love the look of the Pacific Point berries on this card. Once all the images were stamped, I erased the pencil line. Stamping the wreath this way was something I learned from Mikaela Titheridge.

The wreath was layered onto a square card to complement the image.

A cute edge was added with the Very Best Trio punch. I really love how these colours worked together to make this wreath.

Tip

To get the same design on opposite sides with the Very Best Trio Punch, flip your Cardstock over so the design matches when punched out.

Love & Warmth Day 18 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I’ve gone for a non-traditional colour palette for this sketch in the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge.

I was a little bit slow to start with this sketch as I was having some trouble what to do with that centre section. After I heat embossed the candy cane background I wanted a nice contrast. This came with some strips cut from the Tea Boutique Memories & More Cards which I angled for the centre part of the sketch.

To tone the Parakeet Party down I added a strip of Sweet Sorbet which was embossed with the Wintry Embossing Folder. This adds a touch of texture behind those busy front panels.

A simple heart stamped and fussy cut from the Ringed with Nature stamp set was just the perfect finishing touch for this project.

Merry & Bright Day 9 – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

I love unusual colour schemes for Christmas and this was definitely something a little bit different for our #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge. These can be tricky but that’s the point of a challenge. I chose Polished Pink candy canes to start my card off.

The candy canes were fussy cut and layered on die cut candy canes from Polished Pink Cardstock to add more definition. I added lots of leaves from the Christman Banners Dies. Some die cut from Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and others from Fresh Freesia which I highlighted with some Blackberry Bliss ink.

The sentiment was die cut from the Labels Aglow die set. This little circle has fast become one of my favourites. I love the die cut dots around it for just that added little bit of detail.
