Hello lovely friends, Wednesday again so it's Heart of Christmas day for the Art with Heart team. We are now up to week 12.

Today I am showcasing some beautiful new papers in the upcoming Holiday catalogue: The Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper, and the Champagne Foil sheets.

These papers are a bit hard to photograph, but they have beautiful lux foiled designs in gold, copper, silver and champagne. I have teamed them with Fresh Fig and Whisper White cardstock and a reindeer from the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits. My embellishments are the Fresh Fig ribbon, copper metallic thread and Itty Bitty Bows. I didn't think this card needed a greeting on the front, as I wanted the beautiful papers to shine (excuse the pun!) on their own.

Lets jump over and see what my Art with Heart team girls have created today shall we?

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 11 and a 2017 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek

Hello lovely friends.

For this week's Heart of Christmas we have a sneak peek from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue which commences in just 3 weeks! I sat down with this stamp set called Every Good Wish, and planned to make just one card, but it was so fun to play with I ended up making 6, so I am making great progress on my 2017 Christmas cards.

This is a stand alone stamp set (i.e. doesn't have a stamp set and Thinlits set which match), and perfect for multiple cards. I did some single layer cards, and also some a bit more embellished like these ones in Sweet Sugarplum.

For this first card, it's just some very simple stamping in Sweet Sugarplum and Old Olive, and some silver embellishments in the way of Rhinestone Jewels (the smallest ones are perfect for the berries), silver metallic edged ribbon (LOVE this ribbon and it also comes in very vanilla with gold edging which is just as beautiful!) and the silver metallic thread.

For my second card, I stamped the image in Sweet Sugarplum, but the Holly in Smoky Slate this time. For my embellishments I have used some of the Merry Music patterned paper in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue, some of the silver edged ribbon, rhinestone jewels and silver metallic thread again. I have used some Soft Sky cardstock to mat my image and to cut some snowflake embellishments using the Colourful Seasons Thinlits.

Stampin' Up! Heartland Birthday and Thinking of You cards.

I love this gorgeous image in the Heartland stamp set. In fact as a country girl at heart (I was born in the wheatbelt of Western Australia and lived on farms until my late teens), this whole stamp set really jumped out at me in the 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

It was the perfect image for my father in laws birthday card, and I also made a ''thinking of you' card to send to my Mum, as I think this image will really appeal to her as well.

For my Mum's card, I also wanted to try out my new Marbled Background stamp (stamped in Emerald Envy onto an Emerald Envy layer on a Dapper Denim card base). I watercoloured the image (stamped onto a piece of Shimmery White cut from the Stitched Shapes framelits) using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils.

To finish my card, I added a few simple embellishments: a leaf die cut from Eclectic Layers thinlits that I had lying around in my 'bits and pieces' bowl, some of the Dapper Denim washi tape from the Basic 3 Washi Tape and one of the Touches of Nature wooden elements.

For the birthday card I embossed the Emerald Envy layer using the Polka Dot basics embossing folder (note that the image in the catalogue is incorrect for this folder, the dots are actually further spaced as shown here).  The image was coloured the same, but stamped onto one of the circle Stitched Shapes Thinlits. For my embellishments I have added some Burlap Trim and Linen Thread, with some gold metallic shapes. I have used the Happy Birthday greeting from Happy Birthday gorgeous which is a great fit for the Pretty Label punch.

Here's a closer look at the Heartland stamp set (available in wood mount or clear mount red rubber) and the Basics Washi Tape #3 pack. I find this a great combo set because it has 5 different blues to coordinate with all your projects! We also have a green set of 5, pink set of 5 and black and white themed set.

If you are a country girl like me, or enjoy watercolouring, Heartland is a great stamp set for you! 

See you back here tomorrow with a Holiday Catalogue sneak peek.
