Crafting on a hot day

Today we got to 36 degrees Celsius, yesterday it was 40. We’re into our 2nd week of high 30’s and it’s not even summer – what’s a gal to do? Craft of course!

I started writing my Christmas cards yesterday, need to get my US/Canadian cards into the mail if they’re to make it on time and I’m still a few cards short.

So off to some challenges I go for inspiration.

Up first is a card I’m entering over at Sunday Stamps which is a sketch challenge and SU! Only Challenges which is to create a card celebrating a winter holiday. I’m hoping thinking about winter will make me feel cooler on this hot day.


My card uses all Stampin Up products. The sleigh is from a set called Cozy Christmas and the sentiment is from Greetings from Santa. I gold embossed the sleigh and white embossed the sentiment. I then sponged the whisper white panel with lemon lime twist ink and splattered it with some water to simulate snow. the close up shows the sentiment a little bit better.

Next up is a card for my daughter’s teacher. Miss K wanted me to make a shaker card, so I die cut the Stampin Up detailed Santa thinlit out of silver glitter paper, popped it up and filled it with green and blue sequins.


I’m entering this card into the current Merry Mondays Challenge which is a colour theme and for Less Is More which is all about letting it shine.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. A beautiful shaker card absolutely full of sparkle and pizazz! That santa die looks incredible in the silvery glitter card and the shaker contents lift everything with their colour. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
