Hello Fellow Alchemists,
This week I am looking at this years Aussie Christmas 2020 collection from The Reject Shop. There is a 36 sheet paper pack, a 4 sheet sticker pack and a 30 pack of die cuts. Each packet was $3. Some of the pictures are different from the video as when I was recreating them I cut the paper the wrong way and had to work out alternative cards. You can see a previous Christmas post here.
These first few cards showcase Koalas and Kookaburras. There were many Koala die cuts, more than any of the other animals. I used loads of gold foil strips to add some elegance to the cards without it costing too much money. The stitched circles and ovals are from Paper Rose as is the yellow Merry Christmas..
In the next pic you get to see some of the other Aussie animals, Tasmanian Devil, Wombat and a Platypus. The large Merry Christmas die is from Pretty Pink Posh and the smaller one is one I got when I was in the UK from The Works. I will list all stamp brands at the end.
Lot’s of Aussie Goodness!
For the first card in the next set of cards I used the Sizzix die set Pretty Wreath. I liked it because I can use any flowers or add ons with it, not just the ones that came in the set. I had to use the BBQing Santa and I thought Nice until proven naughty was a great sentiment to pair it with! The card in the top middle is a bunch of left over strips used to create another diagonal panel with some extra gold ones for good measure.
In this next set I used the gorgeous Aqua Koala paper, it didn’t super fit in with the rest of the papers but I liked it so created cards around it. It gave me the opportunity to use some more of the sticker pack too. The background stamp is from Little Bluebird. The darker backgrounds are first generation and the lighter one is second generation stamping. Maybe the red cards could do with a nice white border.
The last set are possibly my favourite cards. I don’t like the mustard colour in the surfing Santa cards but I love how they turned out! HO HO HO die cuts are from a Little B Christmas set. For the die cut background I apologise but I am unsure of what it is called. I bought it off a craft second hand buy and sell group.
In these cards I used a multitude of different stamp sets so if there is one you want to know about in particular leave a comment and I will let you know. The brands used were Inkadinkado, Kaisercraft, Rosie’s Studio and Recollections. I hope you enjoyed some of the many Aussie Christmas 2020 Cards, let me know your favourite below. Go create some arty crafty alchemy yourself. Thanks for dropping by.
