Heart of Christmas Week 7 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Today for our Heart of Christmas blog hop, I have recreated a fabulous swap card from my recent Stampin' Up! trip to Alaska. The card was by Jill Taylor, our VP of sales at Stampin' Up! in Utah. Here s Jill's card:

I adapted it to our C6 size card, and used patterned paper instead of ribbon for the banner.

I'm really in love with the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper. I love the neutral Grey Granite background, and the copper foil highlights are great for some extra Christmas wow. It looks great with the coordinating colours of Shaded Spruce (my new go to green) and Merry Merlot, a deep burgundy red.

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team September Blog Hop - showcasing the 2018 Holiday Catalogue

 

Blog Hop

It's time for our monthly Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Blog Hop. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

Today I am showcasing a couple of gift packaging options, using decorations from the Holiday Catalogue. These little gift boxes always come in handy at Christmas for gift cards, as well as small gifts for co-workers or friends such as soy melts, tea light candles, handmade soaps, chocolates or other treats. 

My first gift box would be especially good for treats given the image I have used (Macarons maybe?). I love these Kraft Pillow Boxes. They are pre-printed and you get 10 boxes for $8.75. All you need to do is close up the ends and decorate.

To decorate this Kraft Pillow Box, I have used:

  • Mixed Satin ribbon with some Silver Metallic Thread.
  • Image from Sa Santa stamp set, which I coloured with Stampin' Blends.
  • Festive Farmhouse Elements which I have coloured with Champagne Shimmer paint for extra sparkle.

 

My second gift box is a decorated mini pizza box. These are available to purchase in packs of 8 and have a food safe coating. They are also great for mini cards and envelope gifts. I have used the Santa's Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper to decorate this box. I cut the image and the corners from the DSP too, so the only stamping on this one is the greeting on the sign (greeting from Itty Bitty Greeting, cut out with Classic Label punch). There is also a bit of Pool Party spongeing on the background circle.

It's a little bit hard to see, but I have used some of the coordinating Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured Weave ribbon on the sides, and also some of the Tranquil Tide glimmer paper (from the Joyous Noel glimmer paper pack)on the top of the box as the very base layer.

I hope these projects have given you some ideas for some fun and simple gift boxes. Now it's time to head over to the next blog hop participant, the lovely Rebecca Jacavou.

Heart of Christmas Week 6 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Welcome to Week 6 of Heart of Christmas. I have a bright and fun card for you today, that would be easy to make multiples of. The base of my card is the silver foil lined cards and envelopes available in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (they are also available in gold foil edged). You get 20 cards and envelopes in the pack for just $16.50.

I have used the Making Christmas Bright bundle of photopolymer stamp set and the Bulb Builder Punch for my card. This is such a fun bundle and very versatile too, with several different variations of greeting and decorations. It's also one of the cheapest bundles in the Holiday Catalogue!

The colour combination is nice and bright today!

Week 16 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Early Espresso

Colour Creations 300

Early Espresso

 

Here's my card for this week, using one of my all time favourite Christmas colour combinations: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. I have used the Festive Farmhouse Suite from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

I definitely wouldn't call this a 'do in bulk' Christmas card, but I had lots of fun making the Christmas farmhouse scene and doing the paper piecing on the house. I used two different sheets of the Wood Texture 6x6" DSP pack for the house, with the darker sheet for the roof and shutters. I love the fence and all the bits and pieces that come in the Framelits.

Heart of Christmas Week 5 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia


Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Today's Heart of Christmas Week 5 card is perfect for a Australian summer Christmas. It comes from a fun stamp set in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue, called So Santa. This was my original version, coloured with Stampin' Blends.

After I photographed and edited the pic, I decided to add some Granny Apple Green 1/2" ribbon, so this snap is a quick one in my craft room. I think I prefer the addition of the ribbon, what do you think?

I had fun colouring this image with my Stampin' Blends, although was worried my Santa was looking a little anaemic, lol.  How fabulous is the Swirls and Curls embossing folder though?

There are some other fun images in this set, which I am looking forward to making into projects over the coming weeks.
