Stampin' Up! Wishes and Wonder Bundle 2020 Christmas card

Hello friends. Time for some Christmas since, now that the beautiful 2020 Stampin' Up! August to December Mini Catalogue has launched. Today I am playing with the Wishes and Wonder bundle (part of the Wonder of the Season suite) as well as the Evergreen 3D Embossing folder.

2020 Stampin Up Christmas Card using Wishes and Wonder stamp set / bundle. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

My base card is Mossy Meadow, and the embossed layer is Old Olive. I used a sponge brayer and sponge dauber to add some Old Olive and Mossy Meadow ink to the embossed trees area. LOVE how this turned out.

I diecut the reindeer from brass foil cardstock, and the circlular sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow (this was cut out using the circle die in the bundle). The strip of patterned paper is from 'Tis the Season DSP which is part of the Wonder of the Season. To finish the card I added some Wonderul Gems and a combination of ribbons and trims: Real Red Braided Linen Trim and Old Olive Gold Trimmed Satin Ribbon (part of the All The Trimmings ribbon combo), with a bit of gold cord from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo in the Annual Catalogue.

Sponge brayered sky and moon with Stampin' Up! Mountain Air and Very Versailles Stamp Set

Hello stampers. Coming to you safely at home during the Melbourne curfew hours of 8pm to 5am. Honestly, today was so cold, there was no way I wanted to be outside anyway! It even snowed in the outer suburbs, and it was 7 degrees at 3.30pm in the afternoon. Brrrr.

Today's card was inspired by a photo I took in Rome last year, at dusk. I loved the colours of the sky so much I wanted to try and create a similar look using sponge brayers.

Here's what I came up with. I added a moon in there too, and because I didn't have any stamps of the Rome skyline, I used the mountain scenery stamps from Mountain Air which I absoutely love and must play with again very soon.

I've used the retired Purple Posy ink pad, as well as a combination of Petal Pink and Blushing Bride for the sky. For the other stamping I have used the Very Versaille stamp set and the Mountain Air stamp set, with Memento Black ink.

I have also used the Very Versailles stamp set for the sentiment (Stamped in Basic Grey), and some stamping from the same set on a strip of Purple Posy cardstock. The embellishments are from the Elegant Faceted Gems embellishment pack.

I created the banner ends using the fabulous new Banners Pick a Punch, which punches two different banners in 3 different sizes, so it's really 6 punches in one! Great value and a huge timesaver for perfect banner ends every time.

Here's a closer look at the two stamp sets I have used today. First up Very Versailles which is one I have used quite a bit.

Here is Mountan Air. This is my first creation with this stamp set, but I can't wait to play some more. I have shown it here with the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies. This is one of the current bundles where if you purchase them together you will get 10% off.

I'm really pleased how this card turned out. Hope you like it too. The sponge brayers are such a cool tool. If you have never used sponge brayers to combine colours before THIS VIDEO I created to go with one of my weekly tutorials, gives you a good run down of the technique to do the sky and moon (it is essentially the same card using different colours).
