Christmas Crafting is Natalie's absolute favourite. Natalie has used this months Aussie Christmas Stamp set to create a more universal project like a birthday card. Below is what Natalie has done with the new “Aussie Christmas 3 Stamp Set”
1. On a piece of plain white smooth cardstock Natalie picked 5 rainbow colours of ink, and blended a bit of a background with her Stencil brushes. To make sure she achieved even spacing of the colours she started in the middle with green – blending the ink towards the top and bottom, but not quite reaching it.
After this she blended two colours on either side with the same technique. Don't worry about making the colours 100% smooth and blended.
2. Lay the Uniquely Creative Tiny Dots stencil over the top, and using exactly the same inks and the stencil brushes, add another layer of ink, making it a bit darker so you could easily see the pattern of dots.
3. Stamp and emboss the gift box with white embossing powder onto watercolour paper 5 times. Colour them with Uniqolour Markers – picking colours that co-ordinate with the stencilled background. Once they are thoroughly dry cut them out with the matching die.

5. Adhere the background onto a white card base. Cut out a birthday sentiment strip from the “Aussie Christmas 3” mini kit and attach using foam tape for extra dimension. Repeat with the 5 gift boxes. Finish off by adhering a few scattered pearl bling for just an extra bit of sparkle.
