Stampin' Up! Season Like Christmas for Heart of Christmas 21

Hello lovely stampers. Last week I stamped with a couple of team members and I was able to borrow the Season Like Christmas stamp set from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue. I made two cards for week 21 of the Art With Heart Team Heart of Christmas Week 21.

I had initially overlooked this stamp set in the catalogue, but then saw a couple of lovely cards made with it. It is a really lovely 3 step stamp set to create a pine tree, with another layer if you want to add some baubles, highlights or maybe even snow. I left the final layer off for my cards.

I chose Night of Navy and Emerald Envy for my colour scheme, and my paper is the Naturally Eclectic DSP which has both of these colours in. For this card I highlighted the stamped image with Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist, with some silver added by way of my embossed greeting, mini sequin trim and rhinestones.

For this one, I exchanged the Lemon Lime Twist for Silver Foil paper. I think I like the silver embossed greeting more on the Night of Navy cardstock. How about you?

Do you see the tree trunk in the image? It's very clever how that works. It actually stamps in between the foliage and is pretty easy to line up with the Photopolymer stamp.

Tonight the Art with Heart team girls are sharing some wonderful ideas to inspire you with our Designer Series Papers. This month is the start of the new Stampin’ Up! year and we have a special promotion on our Designer Series Paper, buy 3 get 1 FREE for the month of October and there is no limit!

Today I am showcasing the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, which is just beautiful. I have made a card and a double page scrapbook layout using the papers. Lets start with the card.

The sunflower paper is probably my favourite sheet in the 12 double sided paper pack. I love the colours in it, and it coordinates well with the Painted Harvest stamp set. I have used the three leaf stamp (coordinates with the new Leaf Punch too) for some extra foliage. My other flower is just cut from the patterned paper. My greeting is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and is stamped on Early Espresso onto a Very Vanilla circle cut from the Stitched Shape Framelit.

This picture shows some additional texture I added with the burlap ribbon and gold mini sequin trim.

Next up we have the double 12x12 traditional scrapbook page. This paper is amazing for nature photos and as it has the colours of the sky and plants and flowers in it. Some of the papers in this pack are definitely great for base pages as well, then you have all the other coordinating papers to embellish (I just used a total of three of the patterns in this page).

This was a memory I definitely wanted to record. Our first visit back to Marysville since the town was wiped out and many people died in the 2009 bushfires. It was great to see the town was rebuilding and to see the beautiful statue in the park about new beginnings.

Hello lovelies. Today I wanted to showcase the lovely Stampin' Up!

The promotion goes to October 31st.

Here's a look at the stamp set, and some creations I have made with it the last couple of weeks.

Merry Patterns

For this one I have copper embossed the reindeer, and the backing paper has some stamping on it as well (from different sets - Hearts Come Home and Lovely as a Tree) in Early Espresso.

I embellished with some strips of DSP from Year of Cheer specialty Designer Series Paper, and some wooden stars.

For the second card, I did the two step stamping in Real Red and Old Olive (the photopolymer set makes it super easy to line up). The second step comes in two separate sections, so you can have candles in two colours.

For the final card, I just used the two step greeting and did the second step in Lemon Lime Twist, to add to compliment the bright colours of this card.
