Something for us Aussies

Hello and welcome! Global Design Project #GDP115 challenge theme is Christmas. I just love the little icons GDP have used for it's heading, so sweet.

It is a rare occasion for snow to fall during December in Australia so I thought I would change things around a bit and go with projects more suited to our Australian Christmas. 

I have created a wreath using Eucalypts leaves, gum nut blossoms and gum nuts. Plus some holly and fir leaves to add variety to shape.

Every single floral stamp set I possess was pulled off the shelf to find the right shape leaves I was aiming for. It was amazing how many unused treasures were collecting dust up there.

I have added some touches of glimmer paper and gold foil to add Christmas sparkle to the wreath.

To continue with my Australian Christmas theme I added some gum nuts and blossoms to a twig wreath for the first card.

And of course some seashells as a thank you to Stampin' Up! for giving us a stamp set design for our 'down under' customers.

I hope you have gained some inspiration from your visit today and don't forget that Stampin' Up! are having their Year-End Sale on at the moment. So if there is anything on your Wishlist you haven't got around to buying yet it would be a good idea to get in fast while stocks last, because once they have gone they have gone.  See what is available now from my online store.

Thank you for popping by and until next time happy stamping.
