Topping the Tree – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

For Day 6 of the 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge I’ve used one of my all time favourite stamp sets – Christmas in the Making. This particular image came straight to my mind as soon as I saw the theme of Topping the Tree.

This lady reminds me of my mum – she used to wear lovely skirts and blouses with the collared neck. The short wavy hair is just how she wore it too. It’s lovely to bring back memories as I stamp.

Although there’s no tree on the image, I loved the unsaid anticipation which is depicted in this image of her about to decorate the tree.

I paper pieced the skirt with some Garden Walk Designer Series Paper to create a pretty floral skirt. To fulfil the ‘tree’ element of our challenge, a strip of Winter Meadow DSP was added. The beautiful softness in the Lost Lagoon trees brings out the focal image.

Although the main stamp set is retired, you could use this same layout with any of our other beautiful products and

Shining Bright – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

It’s the start of the 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge which is organised by Martin Stone from Martin’s Mayhem. Over the last couple of years I have been participating in this and I love the various parameters that Martin gives for each of the days. This is also a great chance for me to get a whole lot of Christmas cards created!

This year, I’ve added my own twist to this challenge. Let me introduce you to Nostalgic November – where I’ll be using products from Christmases past to play along with these themes. I have many stamp sets and dies (quite a few unopened) which I’m just wanting to bring out of the archives for this challenge. So make sure you check back each day for the inspiration.

For this theme of Shining Bright I went with some of the Stampin’ Up! shiny Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper. I’ve used the snowflake from the retired Festive Flurry stamp set which has been heat embossed and fussy cut for the focal image.

A panel of Winter Meadow Designer Series Paper sits behind and was also used to stamp the sentiment on.

Catch up tomorrow for more nostalgic inspiration.
