CTC147 – Christmas Around the World


Welcome if you are joining me here for my regular Sunday Blog hop with the Caseing The Catty crew. You may have just joined me from Rebecca Scurr, I hope you are enjoying the inspiration the crew has posted so far.

This week, we are focussing on the Christmas around the World suite on pages 28 & 29 of the Holiday. Can I just say, I really haven’t paid this suite the attention it deserves. I don’t own anything from this suite but in taking a good look at it for this Challenge, I have now added that bundle to the wishlist. That lamp post is just so clever, with the stamps design to hang like banners.


There is just the one main image of creations in this section, but gee there is heaps happening in every aspect of it. So much to look at and take in.

I decided to focus my attention on this card…


There is the DSP in the background and the sentiment is hanging like a banner off the silver washi tape.

Here is my creation…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Colour Theory Suite

I embossed some of the Crushed Curry DSP from the Colour Theory suite with the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder as my background. I layered a card from the Colour Theory Memories and More pack in a similar position to the green cardstock in the catalogue.

I added the tree to the opposite of the card from the banner sentiment and added my own sentiment waving off the tree trunk. I added a few flowers to the tree and finished off with a bow made from the Jute twine.

Next up in the hop is Peta Stephen.


Continue your hop and then head over to our Facebook page and join the challenge. We’d love to see what you create. Join in by next Sunday, 1st October. Entries close at 6pm.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,

  1. Great inspiration card! I love how both our cards are so very different. The hex background really works well.
