Inspire.Create.Challenges #003 | ‘Tis The Season

Hello! Oh, I am so excited for today’s blog post…. The Inspire.Create.Challenge Design Team have a heap of fun Festive inspiration for you today so do click over and see everyone else’s projects too!

I am loving being a part of the Inspire.Create.Challenges Team, and I would LOVE to see you join in with our challenges too.

This fortnight’s challenge is to create a Festive project! Now… when I sent this challenge out to the ladies I had many emails back going ‘Festive… is that Christmas?!’…. well, no. Festive could be anything, a celebration… you could make an Easter project if that really floats your boat!

I have gone for Festive = Christmas… but only because that it what I am working on in my Craftroom at the moment and I have Christmas stamps everywhere! However… I have pulled one of the Christmas stamp sets from the Annual catalogue rather than this years Autumn/Winter (which is awesome by the way!)

Fun Christmas Card for Inspire.Create.Challenges using Christmas Pines from Stampin' Up!

This stamp set was my absolute favourite from last years Autumn/Winter catalogue and I was SO excited to see it carry forward into the Annual this past year. Christmas Pines has a fun collection of pinecones, leaves, and GORGEOUS sentiments… . I am such a sucker for  pretty font and this set is full of pretty fonts!

I have written a full tutorial that you can print… that you can find HERE!

Fun Christmas Card for Inspire.Create.Challenges using Christmas Pines from Stampin' Up!
Isn’t that cluster so pretty?! I stamped the Pine Leaves stamp 3 times in Old Olive, without re-inking inbetween to create a dimensional look. Then I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to die cut 3 different sized leaves from Old Olive card stock and added them over the top of the stamping with Glue Dots.
Those Pine Cones are also in the Christmas Pines stamp set and have been embossed in Gold before being die cut with the coordinating Pretty Pines dies. The cluster is then finished with that gorgeous bow in Real Red card stock….. finally, I bow I can make look pretty!
I would LOVE to see your festive creations this week… check the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to enter.
