I was an elementary school teacher for many years. During Christmas time for Social Studies we studied Christmas traditions around the world. This was my absolute favorite time of the year with my students. So, for our Christmas Around the World card kit I have chosen my most favorite countries we studied to feature.

Mexico: Great food and wonderful traditions centered around Papa Noel.

Sweden: St. Lucia was my favorite tradition in Sweden we studied.

Australia: My students got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was hot and summer there during Christmas.

Germany: Of course what would a study be without studying the origin of the Christmas tree.

Please sit back and enjoy the elements we put together for our Christmas Around the World Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Make sure you leave our designers some love on their blog and hop back to the SFL blog to enter the Rafflecopter. You can purchase the kit on Scrapping for Less on the Subscription page.

Hello, everyone!
Welcome to my blog! I am guest designing for Scrapping for Less for their October Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I designed a card for each of the four different collections included in this kit. Check out my process video below! I love Scrapping for Less’ card kits, especially their October kits because they are Christmas themed. It’s a great kit to help you get started on your Christmas cards.
I really love the theme of this year’s kit–Christmas around the world. There are so many fun and unique stamps, papers and crafty goodies inside. I especially love the Papa Noel Stamp along with the Feliz Navidad sentiment! For each of these cards I used one of the Card Sketches that Scrapping for Less provides.
Here is my process video for these cards! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.
Card #1: Papa Noel
I stamped out Papa Noel on some Stonehenge colored pencil paper–see link below. This paper is fabulous to use with your color pencils of choice. It’s smooth, but it has a fine texture that pulls the pigments off your colored pencils. I used odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps to smooth out my coloring.
Card #2: Santa in Australia
For this card I stamped out the images on a circle die cut, and I used Arteza alcohol Markers to color it in.
Here are the markers I used: Santa – Pale Peach; Trunks, Beard & Ball of Hat: White Diamond, Cloudy Gray; Trunks & Hat – Red, Ruby Red, and Apple Green; Surf Board – Lime Green & Tuscan Sun; Beach – Jasmine Yellow & Beach Sand; Ocean – Arctic Blue
Card #3: Easy Ephemera and Pattern Paper Card
This card was the quickest of the set to create. This card leans heavily on the cuteness of the pattern paper and ephemera pieces, and they support it well! I love all the pattern papers in these collections!
Card #4: O Christmas Tree Card
I love a great tree stamp, and this one really tickled my fancy. I stamped it out with some green Ombre ink that gives it even more dimension and interest. I stamped the star with yellow ink.
Next on the Blop Hop is Stacy from Craft-a-holic Momma!
Thank you for hopping along with us! Have a wonderful weekend!
