Art With Heart Team May Stampin' Up! Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peeks!
What's Happening in June: Happy New Stampin' Up! Catalogue Day!

Welcome to the Heart of Christmas, 27 weeks of Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team

I'm excited to bring you a new feature on my blog between now and Christmas. Each Wednesday, myself and some of the Art With Heart team girls will be posting some Christmas card inspiration using Stampin' Up! products from the 2017 Annual Catalogue (starts Thursday) and the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (coming in September). There are 27 weeks until the end of November, so we figured that would be 27 weeks of handmade Christmas inspiration, plus keep us on track with our own creating. 

Some weeks (like today) I will post a special one off card. Other weeks I will post a card that can easily be duplicated in lots of 5 or 10. I might even throw in some memory keeping or 3D items too. Here is today's card.

Stampin Up At Home with You 2017 Christmas Card. For Heart of Christmas by the Art with Heart Team. Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

The stamp set I have used is a new one in the 2017 Annual Catalogue, called At Home with You. It's a beautiful set to create doorway scenery with lots of different sentiments and bits and pieces which can be added to the scene, You are going to LOVE this set. I stamped the door image onto some of the new Wood Texture Designer Paper stack for a realistic wooden door look. The wreath and potted planters are coloured with the watercolour pencils. The Brick Wall embossing folder creates a nice backdrop.

I used some of the enamel shapes in Cherry Cobbler for the baubles on the planters.

Even though I gave them less than 3 days notice we were starting this week, some of the team have managed to post their own Christmas cards on their blog as well. I know lots of my team are keen on playing along (and we are always welcoming new team members if you would like to be part of something fun and about sharing what we love).
