Every year the same thing happens in my crafty life. Every Christmas I have the last minute rush to create Christmas cards, gifts, tags and decorations. This rush often takes the joy of crafting away, so to help assist to prevent this chaos we created the Christmas Challenge Stampathon.

Welcome to the...

Christmas doesn’t need to be always serious, fun is also part of the season, so in that spirit I pulled out the Cookie-cutter Christmas Stamp set. 

Tags come in all shapes and sizes. My normal go-to is using the tag topper punch, but this time I decided to use a slightly different shape using window box thinlits dies. 

I used the Pom Pom stamp to create a little interest on the tag base, and built the tag from there. 

A little vellum, some card stock and then some colouring with Blends (Stampin’ Up! alcohol makers).


I do love the feeling that I will be on top of Christmas crafting. I hope you join us.
