Art With Heart Team September Blog Hop: Showcasing the 2015 Holiday Catalogue

Awht blog hop start

It's time to show you how clever the girls in my team are! We have lots of lovely friendly dies who love to create and share the Stampin' Up! journey with you. Today we are sharing creations from the 2015 Holiday Catalogue, with lots of Christmas crafting goodies.

My card uses Sleigh Ride Edgelits and I have to tell you it was inspired by a very lovely international demo friend of mine, Amy Koenders.

Aren't these dies amazing? They are so intricate, but I still found they cut out great with just my metallic plate even with the glimmer paper.

The Edgelits also have a matching stamp set, which I really like because the words are curved, to match the curves in the dies. It's called Jingle All The Way. You can buy the Sleigh Ride Edgelits and Jingle All the Way Stamp set in a bundle as well and save 15% (Item 140862 for clear mount and item  140861 for wood mount).

Stampin' Up! All Ye Faithful Christmas Card

I very rarely use Night of Navy cardstock, but I liked how it looked with the Whisper White and Silver on this Christmas card using the new All Ye Faithful stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalogue. I really like the nativity scenes in this stamp set.

This would be a pretty easy card to make a batch of for Christmas. Here's a quick breakdown of the pieces (links to all products in bold are at the end of the post).

  • A standard C6 card in Night of Navy (landscape side fold)
  • A piece of Holiday's Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (the silver one) 6 inches x 1 inch and the Triple Banner Punch used on one end.
  • A piece of the snowflake design from Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper 6 inches x 1.5 inches and the Tripe Banner punch used on one end.
  • A 2.5 inch circle punched from Whisper White which is where you silver emboss the image
  • Half a large Silver Metallic Doily
  • An extra strip of cardstock 1/2" wide to silver emboss the greeting onto (use the Banner Punch or easy banner ends).
  • A Winter Wonderland Embellishment

Bright and happy birthday card using Stampin' Up! Remarkable You

The sun is shining here in Melbourne today, and it's a bright 27C day, so how about a bright happy card to start the week? I love my garden and flowers, so Remarkable You was one of the stamp sets I "needed" from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Remarkable You 2b

The base card is Cucumber Crush, one of this years in colours. I have embossed it with the Lovely Lace embossing folder. My floral image is water-coloured with an Aqua-painter and Watermelon Wonder ink from the inside of the ink pad. Love these colours together. All products are linked at the end of the post.

Remarkable You 2

 

Stamping Tips for Today's Card:

  • Our watercolor paper is great quality and that really makes a difference when you are shading with an Aqua-painter and ink. I colour the whole image and then go over and over to add more colour. As the paper is high quality, you don't get any paper peeling off from overworking it.
  • I've just popped the flower section up with a couple of Dimensionals - the stem was just adhered with Snail.
  • To cut the shimmer edge, I used the Circles Framelits. Cut the small circle out first and then the larger around it. The black and white script paper is the same size as the large circle.
  • The sentiment set I have used today is Happy Happenings. It's one on my favourites from the Annual Catalogue. Covers lots of different sentiments and fits some punches too.

Happy Happenings

Here's the gorgeous Remarkable You set. Available in wood mount or clear mount (links at end of post).

Stampin' Up! Christmas card featuring Wonderland stamp set

Another Christmas card today, this one featuring the Wonderland stamp set and Boughs & Berries embossing folder from the Stampin' Up! 2015 Holiday Catalogue.

Wonderland 1

I'm a big fan of this stamp set. I love the tall pine images and the greetings are so peaceful. I have added a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the trees using a 2 Way Glue Pen. The sky is sponged in Mint Macaron and the trees stamped in Mossy Meadow (I stamped 2 times without reinking). My embellishment is one of the new Iced Rhinestones, adhered on top of a new Snowflake Element. My background embossed layer is Always Artichoke, on a Mint Macaron card base.

Wonderland 1a

Here's a closer look at the Wonderland Stamp Set. You can view and purchase any of the products I have used today by clicking the links at the end of the post. I'm happy to take orders by phone or email too. You can contact me HERE.

Masking Technique using Stampin' Up! Garden in Bloom

It's not often I create a one layer card (well, technically it's a one layer card front), but I wanted to show off the lovely Garden in Bloom two step stamp set, and the Masking technique was perfect for this card. So simple, but effective I think.

Masking

 

Stamping Tips for a great masked result:

  • One of the keys to a great masked card is having a well defined edge to the masked area. I find using paper (grid paper is perfect) to mask off the area works better than cardstock for that purpose.
  • Grid paper is also perfect for lining everything up straight when you have a straight masked area like I have used here. Here's a picture of my set up before stamping.

  Masking 1

  •  I also find sponging a little over the masked edge gives great definition too.

Here's the colour combination I used on today's card:

The Garden in Bloom stamp set is a great set to add to your collection. It's Photopolymer, so really easy to line up. It's great for two step stamping, but you can also use the outline stamps just by themselves. You can check out this and all the other products I have used in today's card by scrolling through the links at the end of the post.
