Stampin' Fancy Friday | Christmas Challenge

Hello stamping friends. It's so great to have you here today. Today I have a project for the Stampin' Fancy Friday Team. If you've not see us before we are a group of past and continuing Stampin’ Up! Artisans bringing our followers a fancy monthly challenge to inspire them to get creative! 

This month's challenge is Christmas. Who doesn't love some Christmas crafting inspiration?

  The brief for this challenge - create a fancy project that is SUPER FANCY CHRISTMAS! Try to make it artfully avid and over the top!

 My card today uses products from the Stampin ' Up! Joy of Christmas Suite and as well incorporating the Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder.

 Lately my cards have been mostly white with a little pop of colour but this card is the other way around being mostly colour and a little pop of white. I've stamp the leaf image, to create the wreath, on Crumb Cake cardstock and then coloured in the images with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. Did you know you could colour with the Stampin' Blends on Crumb Cake? There's my tip for the day. Try not to colour too much as the ink can 'bleed' if it is saturated too much but its perfect for the smaller images.

 The card base it Cherry Cobbler (the perfect traditional Christmas colour) and then I used the Gingham paper in the same colour as the base from the Joy of Christmas DSP. Layered over that is the Pecan Pie music sheet from the same DSP. To give the the music sheet DSP a bit more depth I sponged the edges using a Blending Brush also in the Pecan Pie Colour. 

I love the colours in the Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper. The traditional red, green, and gold teamed up with the browns and greys make for a gorgeous colour combo and this gives the DSP an almost vintage/shabby chic vibe.

 There is a piece from one of the Holly floral sheets from the Joy of Christmas DSP under the wreath and the ribbon but from the photos it's a little hard to see. I've added some Shaded Spruce die cut greenery from the Joy of Noel Dies to add that extra layer. and then over the wreath is the embossed Noel and the Merry Christmas Sentiment.

I've finished the card off with the Black and Very Vanilla Large Check Ribbon, some gems from the Loose Holly Gems & Sequins, and a little strand of the retired Gold Thread.

I hope that I've given you some 'Fancy' Christmas inspiration today. Make sure you visit the Stampin' Fancy Friday Instagram and Facebook pages for lots of ideas for this Christmas challenge and we hope you'll join in the challenge with us. There are new projects posted nearly every day of the month so be sure to check back to either social media sites for more 'fancy' inspiration.
