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.

Stampin' Up! Blended Seasons stamp set and Framelits 3 ways, and my top 10 picks.

Demonstrators and my customers have totally been loving the limited release Stampin' Up! Blended Seasons stamp set and Framelits, available only this month (August 2018). It's a beautiful set to colour in many different ways (including with the Watercolour Pencils Assortment 2, available exclusively this month). You can buy the stamp set and Framelits individually or in a bundle, and the Watercolour Pencils in the pack of 10 new colours.

Here's 3 cards and videos I have done as part of a series to show 3 different ways to colour the Blended Seasons image.

Colouring stamped images - August 2018 Art With Heart Monthly Blog Hop

Aug Hop

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring stamp sets that you can colour in. We hope our blog hop inspires you to pick up some Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin Blends or another form of colouring medium and colour in with your stamps. Don’t forget to contact any of the ladies on the blog hop to order any products, especially they limited edition colour your season products.

I have featured another Christmas card, as I just can't get enough of colouring the Christmas baubles with the Stampin' Blends. I have been going a bit crazy with colouring using the Blends lately, as I just love the depth of colour I am getting and the ease of the blending, They are great alcohol markers, and having them to coordinate with my Stampin' Up! colours is just a bonus.

Stampin Up Beautiful Baubles stamp set from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. Coloured with Stampin Blends. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

The base card is Granny Apple Green,  vibrant green that debuted this year in the Colour Revamp. Here re the Stampin' Blends Colours I have used to colour the bauble from Beautiful Baubles stamp set (coming on September 5th with the 2018 Holiday Catalogue):

  • Soft Sea Foam Light
  • Soft Sea Foam Dark
  • Pool Party Light
  • Pool Party Dark
  • Bermuda Bay Light
  • Granny Apple Green Light

Other products are the new Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder (coming in the Holiday Catalogue), and to mat the image I have used Coastal Cabana cardstock and Silver Glimmer paper. My image is stamped onto Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black ink pad, with the greeting from the Beautiful Baubles set silver embossed.

Week 12 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Coastal Cabana

Who's for playing with a lovely sunny blue this week, in Coastal Cabana? I love this blue and was so happy to see it back this year with the Stampin' Up! Colour Revamp.

Coastal Cabana

Coastal Cabana 2

 Here's my card for this week. Coastal Cabana and silver make a fabulous combination for Christmas cards don't you think?

I've used the Beautiful Baubles stamp set, with Coastal Cabana and Silver Glimmer Paper (oh my goodness, you should check out our new and improved glimmer paper - NO MESS, and it also cuts beautifully in the Big Shot now. I LOVE IT. Find it HERE in the online store).

It was so much fun colouring the different baubles in with the Stampin' Blends. Stampin' Blends alcohol markers are perfect when you want blendable saturated colour. Just remember to stamp your image in Memento Black Ink so you don't get any running of the image. Here are the colours of the Stampin' Blends I used (you can buy Stampin' blends individually, or in light and dark combination for each colour. See them all HERE in my online store.

  • Light Soft Sea Foam
  • Dark Soft Sea Foam
  • Light Mint Macaron
  • Light Pool Party
  • Dark Pool Party
  • Light Bermuda Bay
  • Light Smoky Slate

I hope you have enjoyed today's Colour Creations card. Now it's time to head back to Catherine Proctors blog to see who else is playing along this week.

If you are new to Stampin' Up! in Australia, or don't have a demonstrator, don't forget to request a 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue from me. It starts August 5th, but I'm mailing them out over the coming week (if you have a regular demonstrator, please ask them for a catalogue).

Week 11 AWH Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Cherry Cobbler

Welcome to another week of Colour Creations from the Art With Heart team. This week we are playing with Cherry Cobbler, which is a perfect reason to start my 2018 Christmas cards as well.

Cherry Cobbler

I have used the lovely Blended Seasons bundle again. I'm SO sad I only get to show you this in August, because I totally love it!  It's so perfect for colouring and very versatile for different cards. I love the Framelit shapes too, and that super cool double stitching feature which leaves stitching on the negative piece as well.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons 2018 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demo Melbourne Australia.

I had actually meant to pop a metallic pearl or red rhinestone either end of the greeting, but realised while editing that I forgot - oops! What you might be able to see is some of the new Merry Merlot glimmer paper which is coming up in the Holiday Catalogue - love! For the colouring on this one, I have used Blender Pens and the ink from the inside lid of my Classic Ink Pads in Call Me Clover, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.

I have also used the Sheet Music background stamp in a super haphazard way on the background. To do that:

  1. Ink up your background stamp and lay it inked side up
  2. Press your card front down onto the stamp in various sections, including turning the card on angles and leaving parts out

I hope you like today's card. Don't forget you only have until the end of August to get your hands on the Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits. Check out the links at the end of the post. 

Now it's time to head back to the blog of my lovely team member Catherine Proctor, so you can see the other Cherry Cobbler creations from the Art With Heart Team ladies.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a fabulous week.

Claire
