Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 12 and another Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek

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.

Year of cheer 1

 

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.

Graphic

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.

Now it's time to see what the lovely Art with Heart girls have been up to for Heart of Christmas this week.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 10

Yeah, we are into double figures with the Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas for 2017, bought to you by the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. Welcome to week 10 - how exciting!

Graphic

I've had a pretty overwhelming week that past week (in fact it actually started right when last week's post went live), with a very close friend having a really difficult time and spending some time in hospital. It's so difficult when people you love are sick isn't it, much more so of course for her and her family and that's hard to watch too? I found myself a bit dazed and not quite with it for much of the week, so today's card is a very quick card which luckily I had made earlier last week. Sometimes the simple cards are the best so I hope you like it. 

Carols of Christmas 1

I've used the new Carols of Christmas bundle which is in my last post (in fact this is one of the cards). I really like the big bold sentiments in this stamp set. Being red rubber, they are perfect to use Stampin' Write Markers with to get multi-coloured greetings (I have used Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler).  This bold striped Cherry Cobbler paper is from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper (in the annual catalogue). 

The Art with Heart girls will have been much more on the ball than me this week so pop on over to their blog for some more Christmas inspiration.

See you back here soon for some Holiday Catalogue sneak peeks.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 9

Today we are up to week 9 of the Art with Heart Stampin' Up!'s team Heart of Christmas blog promotion for 2017.

Today I have a fancy fold card for you, that sits up nicely to display, but also folds into a C6 envelope for posting. I received a version of this as a swap  card from Julie Kettlewell (UK Demonstrator) and I couldn't wait to get back to my craft desk to try it out.

It's a super cute design and is great for showing off the large greetings in Carols of Christmas. This stamp set is being released a month early for customers (along with coordinating Thinlits dies which I have also used here). You can purchase either the stamp set or Thinlits separately, or combine them in a bundle. I'll be posting more information about that promotion next Tuesday.

The great thing about this card is that it can be folded and popped into a standard C6 envelope.

Here's another view of the card that shows the base of the centre decorated piece. The patterned paper I have used today is the Be Merry Designer Series Paper from the annual catalogue. There are also lots of beautiful new Christmas papers coming in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue which I'll be sending out early August. If you are in Australia, and don't already have a demonstrator (or your demonstrator is no longer active), just click on the 'FREE CATALOGUE link (far right on the top line of the navigation links above my blog banner) and fill in the details to receive YOUR free paper copy in the mail in August.

You can either write your greeting on the inside side panels (which I have intentionally left blank) or the reverse of the card. I think this would be a lovely card to display for the lucky recipient at Christmas.

Now it's time to visit the blogs of my lovely Art with Heart team girls, to see what they have created for you this week. Enjoy! Don't forget to ask these girls for a holiday catalogue or information about classes too.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 8

Hello lovelies. We are now up to week 8 of Heart of Christmas bought to you by the Stampin' Up! Art with Heart team! I hope you are enjoying playing along and you are getting some great ideas for your 2017 Christmas cards.

Optimised-HOC

My family have just returned home from the Thailand Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip which was so fun! I hope to do some posts over the coming week about that. Even though it wasn't so far to travel this year, I'm struggling a bit getting my act together after the overnight trip home. Both my own and the kids sleep routine is still a bit messed up so no lot a lot s getting done since we arrived home a couple of days ago.

Given that,  I hope you don't mind if I cheat a little this week by posting a card that uses a current stamp set and bundle and was my most pinned Christmas card of last year. I love this card because if it is super simple to do a batch of. 

Optimised-swirly-bird

You could also use any patterned paper you have and just pick up two contrasting colours on it to use with the Swirly Birds bundle and the enamel shapes. Later in the week I will post a new version of this card using a current paper so you can see how easy it is to adapt.

Optimised-bird

Of course the Art with Heart team girls have been super busy coming up with new  2017 Christmas card inspiration for you. Please pay them a visit and see what they have been creating.
