Stampin' Up! Quilted Christmas and Hearts Come Home quick and easy Christmas cards.

We're into the home stretch for Christmas cards now, and sometimes you just need some really quick and easy cards. That is what today's post is all about.

The Quilted Christmas Designer Paper was my favourite paper in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. I particularly liked the pages with the triangles, as they reminded me of little trees. I really liked the colours in this paper pack too, as it allowed me to bring some of the softer coordinating colours into my cards.

HOC 25a

You could basically use any ling Christmas greeting you have, but I have used the greeting from the Hearts Come Home stamp set. I hear embossed the greeting in silver, and used silver stars from the Metallic Enamel shapes for the tops of the 'trees'. The cardstock colours I have used on the outer two layers of the card are Pool Party and Blushing bride.

HOC 25b

Here's a closer look at the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper. There are 48 sheets in the pack, 12 designs with 4 of double sided design. This is the double sided design I used for these cards, which shows the coordinating colours of Blushing Bride, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Real Red and Whisper White.

Stampin' Up! Hearts Come Home for Heart of Christmas #23

Hello ladies, time for this week's Heart of Christmas inspiration post bought to you by the Art with Heart team.

Graphic

This week I have used up a left over piece from the Hometown Greetings Edgelit dies in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. It just fitted into the largest oval shape from the Layering Ovals Framelits.

I have watercoloured the piece of watercolor paper behind the edgelits using Island Indigo ink. When that was dry I stamped the sleigh in Island Indigo, and placed it behind the card which I had embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. My greeting is from Merry Patterns, and then finished off with some Night of Navy crinkled seam binding.

Stampin' Up! Beachy Little Christmas for Heart of Christmas 22

Graphic

Hello my lovely stamping friends, It's warming up in Melbourne, so this week for The Art With Heart Team Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas number 22, we have a summer themed Christmas card using Beachy Little Christmas. I love the little beach shacks (bathing boxes) in this set as they feature in various places along the Melbourne coastline in all their brightly coloured glory. In some suburbs, these cute little beach shacks sell for astronomical amounts of money because they are so popular and rarely come up for sale.

For my colouring, I have used the brand new soon to be released Stampin' Blends (available November 1st for customers). These are our reformulated and improved alcohol markers and I have really loved playing with them over the last few weeks.  They can be purchased individually, in a set of light and dark, or the whole set together.

Stampin' Blends alcohol markers in Stampin' Up! colours. Available November 1st 2017.

For today's card I used Crumb Cake light and dark, Bermuda Bay light and dark, Daffodil Delight dark, Old Olive light, Pumpkin Pie light and Cherry Cobbler dark. I coloured on thick whisper white.

I've also used the Seaside embossing folder to carry through the beach theme. The patterned paper is from Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper pack in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. Here's a closer look at the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set available until 2nd January in the Holiday Catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Season Like Christmas for Heart of Christmas 21

Hello lovely stampers. Last week I stamped with a couple of team members and I was able to borrow the Season Like Christmas stamp set from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue. I made two cards for week 21 of the Art With Heart Team Heart of Christmas Week 21.

I had initially overlooked this stamp set in the catalogue, but then saw a couple of lovely cards made with it. It is a really lovely 3 step stamp set to create a pine tree, with another layer if you want to add some baubles, highlights or maybe even snow. I left the final layer off for my cards.

Stampin Up Season Like Christmas 2017 Christmas card by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I chose Night of Navy and Emerald Envy for my colour scheme, and my paper is the Naturally Eclectic DSP which has both of these colours in. For this card I highlighted the stamped image with Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist, with some silver added by way of my embossed greeting, mini sequin trim and rhinestones.

For this one, I exchanged the Lemon Lime Twist for Silver Foil paper. I think I like the silver embossed greeting more on the Night of Navy cardstock. How about you?

Do you see the tree trunk in the image? It's very clever how that works. It actually stamps in between the foliage and is pretty easy to line up with the Photopolymer stamp.

Now it's time to visit the other lovely ladies in the Art With Heart team and see what they have been up to.

I embellished with some strips of DSP from Year of Cheer specialty Designer Series Paper, and some wooden stars.

For the second card, I did the two step stamping in Real Red and Old Olive (the photopolymer set makes it super easy to line up). The second step comes in two separate sections, so you can have candles in two colours.

For the final card, I just used the two step greeting and did the second step in Lemon Lime Twist, to add to compliment the bright colours of this card.
