Christmas banner with PaperArtsy stamps


Hello everyone,
I'm here with the second inspirational project for our December challenge.
The theme is Christmas and I created a vintage look banner with Santa.
All the stamps I used for this banner are from the PaperArtsy.
The snowflake patterned papers are not printed papers, they were also made by me.
On my blog, you can find a detailed tutorial with many photos.
Thank you for visiting my blog and have a merry Christmas!!!

A Dickens of a Christmas

Good morning it's Jane here today with my 2nd piece of Christmas inspiration for you. I love using Tim Holtz' products, he is the King of Christmas crafting for me at this time of the year. Today I am using one of his old Bigz dies which was re released a couple of years back and I grabbed it.
I made a very "Victorian" inspired Christmas card. Can you hear them singing....😉
If you would like to pop over to my blog here I will greet you with a glass of mulled wine share all the details, including the poinsettia crackle stenciled background. 
We are seeing lots of lovely Christmas projects in the current challenge, you still have until 31 December to enter.
This is my last share with you for 2018. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and thank you all for your support of our challenges during 2018. May all your crafting dreams come true.
See you in 2019,

Guest Designer Jean

Hello everybody! We're delighted to welcome Jean from Krafty Jean  as our guest this month.  Jean won our challenge in September and today she's here with her take on this month's Christmas theme.  You're going to love what she's created, so without more ado, let's hand over to her...

This months theme is Christmas so i made an easel card. I used fabulous duck egg coloured paper as my base. I then layered with a die cut frame  and die cut poinsettia in mulberry paper. The lace and pearls were from my stash.  


Thank you Jean
This was a beautiful Christmas card

Snowfall on the hills


I dream of a walk through the trees, crunching snow underfoot for this Christmas...

To be a little less predictable I used bright colours that wouldn't look out of place on a spring make!
As usual, you can come by my blog to read up on all the details of this card!

Hooray! We've finally arrive at my favourite time of the year...yes Christmas day is just 25 days away. I will be opening up the first window of my advent calendar this morning and lighting number 1 on my advent candle. 
As most people know I really am Mrs Christmas and love everything it. For my first design team piece my card just had to feature Father Christmas.
I love this stamp, it's from the new Tim Holtz Yuletide set and to me epitomizes everything about a traditional Santa. I even coloured him up traditionally. If you take a sleigh ride  pop over to my blog here you can see a step by step of how I made my card but shhhh, keep it a secret as I made it for my Hb and he hasn't seen it yet...ho ho ho! 🎅
Bye for now,

It's the most wonderful time of the year... I love Christmas - some may say a little too much, but bah humbug to them! I've gone back to some of my old favourite stamps and dies for my card, simply because I love them.
There are lots more pictures over on my blog, so I hope to see you over there. Have a very happy December, and I'll be back in a few big sleeps with my next project x

Hello there! I do hope you can join us this month - its certainly got to be the easiest theme! Go on! I had some fun with dies and distress oxides plus a Tim stamp. Check it out on my blog post here.
