‘Tis the Season CTMH Australasian Blog Hop



Hi and welcome to our 'Tis the Season Close To My Heart Blog Hop. If you arrived from Lauren's blog, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, welcome! Please join in by following the link at the end of this post!


Today, I want to share with you a page and a couple of cards which feature the 'Tis the Season collection. 

For my page, I used Charcoal cardstock as a base then added a piece of White Daisy cardstock cut to 11.5" x 11.5". The 'Tis the Season paper squares were cut to 2.5" x 2.5" and added to the page evenly spaced. To add some dimension to the complements, I added some Thin 3D Foam tape. A small loop of White & Gold Twine was added to each of the stockings then "strung" to a length of White & Gold Twine.  I also added a length of Candy Apple striped ribbon across the page, with a faux bow. 
To finish off, I double matted the photo holder using Candy Apple & Charcoal cardstock. 
I have been making lots of Christmas cards and these are just a few of the them!

This card was inspired by one shared by Becca Whitham and created using White Daisy cardstock, 'Tis the Season Paper Pack, Z4240 - Oh What Fun Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts Set, Black, Candy Apple Ink & Fern Pads, Decorative Borders Thin Cuts, White & Gold Twine & the Clear Shimmer Brush to add some sparkle to the tree.

This card was also inspired by a card by Becca Whitham, using Candy Apple, Fern & White Daisy cardstock, 'Tis the Season Paper Pack, Z4240 - Oh What Fun Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts Set, Black, Candy Apple Ink & Fern Pads, Decorative Borders Thin Cuts, White & Gold Twine, Clear Shimmer Brush & Gold Shimmer Brush.

This card was Pinterest inspired by Helen and created using White Daisy cardstock, 'Tis the Season Paper Pack, Red Shimmer Tape, Confetti Stars Embossing Folder (retired), CC10188 - Love with all the Trimmings stamp set (retired) & Candy Apple ink pad. 

 For this card, I used some scraps I had on my desk! It was created using White Daisy & Candy Apple cardstock, Red Glitter Paper, 'Tis the Season Paper Pack, Gold Shimmer Trim, Basic Circles Thin Cuts, Stitched Circles Thin Cuts, D1799 - Christmas Countdown stamp set & Red Shimmer Brush. I used 3D Foam tape to add dimension.

The final card I want to share with you today, was inspired by a card shared by Gail Gross (fellow CTMH consultant). It was created using 'Tis the Season Bulk paper, Charcoal & White Daisy cardstock, CC12181 - Christmas Blessings Stamp Set, Pewter Ink Pad, Basic Circles Thin Cuts & Stitched Circle Thin Cuts. The cathedral window look was created by cutting 1.5" circles from the paper, then using a 1" square, fold the edges of the circles in to created the effect. I did that for the first card I created, then used my cricut to cut more circles for more cards! It was much easier. I created a Design Space file that can be used with the Cricut Explore or above! You are welcome to use this file if you use Design Space. The Design Space can be found here

The 'Tis the Season collection is only available from your consultant till the end of December 2018 (WSL)! If you don't have a consultant, you can contact me here!
