Yuletide Delights with The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog

Hi everyone and welcome. Janna is hosting the latest challenge over on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and she's called it 'Yuletide Delights'; "Let's get festive and create some Vintage Yuletide magic. Perhaps use some holiday distress colors or go full glitz with sparkles and falling snow. It is getting cold and we are thinking of sugarplums, candy canes, and holiday cheer. Create holiday cards, décor, or ornaments to show your Yuletide Delights. Have fun with your make and create some holiday magic! Happy crafting!"

The Design Team will choose their top four picks, with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and three additional outstanding entries will receive Top 3 Badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

For this challenge I got busy making Holiday cards to send to family and friends this Christmas.

The collage backgrounds were made from tea-stained paper that had been stencilled with paste through two of Eileen Hull's Mandala designs. I pulled gel plate prints onto wet strength tissue using Dina Wakley Media Paints (Ruby, Umber, Sky and Evergreen) and tore them into strips to apply over the paper.

The large leaf shape from Dina's 'Be Willing' stamp set was stamped over the top with black permanent ink and some hand stitched crosses were added over the red strip.

As focal points I die cut the snowman, ornament and trees (from the Vintage Truck die) from card covered with cotton fabric, edged with brown ink. To add a touch of bling I cut the additions (including zig zags from the Mitten die and star from the Wreath & Snowflake die set) in Silver Kraft Stock and Teal Kraft Stock, layering them over the basic fabric shapes.

That's my take on the 'Yuletide Delights' theme. For even more inspiration the rest of the Design Team have come up with their own projects for this challenge so make sure you hop on over and check them out HERE.


  1. Oh Jenny I adore the simplicity of these cards, everyone depicting a different Christmas scene. I especially love the hand stitched kisses, such a personal touch. Beautifully designed.
    Thank you for this seasonal inspiration.
