Welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne, Australia. I’m blog hopping with my friends at the New at SU team and the theme is Happy Holidays. I have chosen the Wishes & Wonder bundle to highlight. With it’s reindeer and sleigh and other images, it is a very cute set to work with. I particularly like the tag that is in the dies.
I have used the Curvy Dies for the background along with the coordinating stamp set. This is part of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle which you get at 10% discount when purchasing as a bundle. The stamped trees were shaded in the Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend to give some light colour.
The reindeer were stamped in Early Espresso on Sahara Sand cardstock and then shaded with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. This method of stamping and colouring is a quick way to get shading without spending too much time on colouring in.
I cut out one section of the Wonder of the Season Designer Series Paper for the tag. Then I ran only the bottom section through with the die to create the detailed edge as I didn’t want the tag punched out at the top.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope it has inspired you with some creative ideas for the holidays. Please follow the hop through for lots of fun holiday projects and leave us comments as you go along as we love hearing from you.

Many of us have grown up with chalkboards during our schooling and the screeching sound of chalk against the chalkboard is one we’d rather forget! Today’s #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge is a Chalkboard Christmas. Although, there are alternate ways to interpret this, I went with the traditional black chalkboard.
Heat embossing the sentiment from Wrapped in Christmas helped it to stand out against the black whilst still creating the chalkboard effect.
I used the Whisper White ink pad to add some chalk dust on my Chalkboard.
I also used this ink to go over the embossing on my card base which added to the chalk feel of the card.
The reindeer was heat embossed in White on Crumb Cake cardstock. I then coloured it in completely with the Whisper White Watercolour pencil. Then I went over parts of the image with Early Espresso and a touch of Daffodil Delight. I added a panel of plaid paper from Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper behind my layered chalkboard. I love the Christmas feel it gives.
The sprig of leaves was stamped in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White cardstock which I coloured in Old Olive, Basic Gray and Whisper White Watercolour pencils. Then I used the Basic Black pencil to fill in all the white space to resemble the chalkboard look. Finally, I added Whisper White ink with a sponge dauber to soften the edges which coordinated with my chalkboard sentiment.
