Stampin' Up! Confetti Celebration Shaker Cards

Shaker cards are so lovely to receive, and the beautifully coloured Fancy Frost sequins from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, make very pretty shaker cards. Here are some cards I put together to congratulate some Art With Heart Team members recently.

I chose my colours to coordinate with the Fancy Frost sequins, so I have used Silver, Whisper White. Sweet Sugarplum and Pool party. The gorgeous silver ribbon I have used is from the Glitter Ribbon combo pack in the Holiday Catalogue.

I've embossed the front panel of the card using the Lucky Stars embossing folder in the Annual Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! 12x12 Scrapbooking Layouts using the 2016 Holiday Catalogue Products.

Art With Heart Stampin Up Team Australia Claire Daly

Today some of my Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 3rd January 2017. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!


You have come to my blog from the very talented Rachel Woollard. Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

I have decided to show you a double Christmas 12x12" scrapbooking layout to show you how many of the Holiday Catalogue products can also be used in Scrapbooking (double click for a closer look). I LOVE Christmas and love when it's time to decorate the house and tree each year. I like to capture bits and pieces which get added to the collection each year and how the house looks. Just looking at this layout makes me excited for this years Christmas. I can't wait to add the new ornaments I bought in Paris to the tree this year!

Here's a closer look at each page individually. I have used the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape for my layout, and my base cardstock is the coordinating Mint Macaron from the 2015-17 InColour 12x12 cardstock pack.

Here's a few little details of my layout. I created my own little photo descriptions on my computer as strip journaling. A bit of coiled Gold bakers twine (from the Bakers Twine Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalogue). Love the weight of this twine - perfect for using in this way. That's one of the stamped greetings from the Star of Light stamp set stamped and sitting over the twine. You can also catch a glimpse of one of the die cut Christmas words from the Christmas Greetings thinlits which I have used to embellish my page. I'm a big fan of using words on pages as they really set the scene for the emotion I hope my page conveys,

The greetings in the Star of Light stamp set are perfect for using on a Christmas scrapbooking layout. I stamped them in coordinating Mint Macaron ink and attached using the Presents and Pinecones Washi tape. I have used the Washi tape in lots of other places as well. It coordinates perfectly with the DSP and colours (which is why I LOVE scrapbooking with Stampin' Up! products) and I find it's great to fill spaces and create flow through the layout. This is especially important in double page layouts.

The Starlight Thinlit dies which coordinate with the Star of Light Stamp set make fabulous embellishments. I have cut this one using Copper foil cardstock and a layer of Vellum. The piece in the middle is a White Perfect Accents shape, coloured with a bronze Sharpie. Looks great with the Copper Foil I think.

I'm a fan of using coordinating colour enamel shapes to highlight journaling strips. Love you can get these packs of enamel shapes in our colour groups. I'm always reaching for them.

I did my title on the computer. It's easy to find the RGB codes for our Stampin' Up! colours using a Google search, and that's how I often print my titles for scrapbook pages if I'm not stamping them.

The embossing folder gives a lovely subtle effect and perfectly coordinates with the pine bough shapes in the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. The greeting in the stamp set fits nicely in the Layering Circles Framelits. I've added a cute antiqued silver Christmas Trinket Embellishment and some Presents and Pinecones DSP to complete my card.

Candy Cane Lane DSP Gingerbread House Christmas Cards

Love love love these cute gingerbread houses featured in the Candy Cane Lane DSP from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. They make a great feature of a card by themselves when you cut them out with a pair of paper snips.

All I've needed to add is a bit of background stamping, a strip of coordinating DSP and a bit of copper with an embossed greeting (love this greeting from Holly Berry Happiness) and a little copper heart cut using the heart border punch.

Star of Light Bundle on a Galaxy Background

A couple of nights ago I was browsing Pinterest and came across a lovely card using this bundle on a sponged background (I'd love to tell you who made it, but unfortunately it didn't lead to any blog or web page to identify it). It sparked an idea in me to use the Galaxy background technique with the Star of Light Bundle from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

I've used copper embossing and copper foil paper as highlights which I think look great with the rich colours of the background.

For the background technique, there are a few good videos floating around from Kristina Werner, Wendy Cranford and Alisa Tilsner. Here's the basic steps though:

Step 1: Add splotches of watercolour wash to watercolour paper using an Aquapainter. You want all the paper covered, but try not to go over two many areas with more than one colour. I used Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Emerald Envy, Rich Razzleberry and Tangelo Twist for this step. Dry thoroughly front and back after this.

Galaxy 6

Step 2: Make up a watercolour wash using Elegant Eggplant and Night of Navy reinkers (I used twice as much Night of Navy to Elegant Eggplant) and apply (with an aquapainter) over the top of the coloured areas in a random way. You want to leave a few areas with less wash over it compared to others. Once you are happy (remembering it will dry lighter), dry thoroughly by leaving to air dry or using a heat gun on both sides.

Galaxy 8

Step 3: Water down some acrylic paint or craft ink and apply with a flicking motion onto the paper using an old paintbrush. I ended up with some streaky bits but I quite liked these as it gave the effect of shooting stars! This stage tool a long time to dry so I ended up blotting the dots of paint which probably muted the effect on my sample.

Galaxy 9

If you watch one of the videos you will definitely get the idea and it's a cool technique.
