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.

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.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 17 with Quilted Christmas

Hello there. Time to get back into the swing of Heart of Christmas where the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team girls bring you Christmas inspiration each week. I was away visiting family in Perth for the last couple of weeks. This week we are up to week 17. 

I'm loving creating these handmade cards and am looking forward to a relaxing weekend in late November where I will sit with a cuppa and write in these cards, rather than running around like crazy trying to make a heap of rushed cards in one weekend (me last year!).

Today I have been playing with the Quilted Christmas product suite. I'm not a quilter, but I do love this suite of products. I particularly love the colour combination in the 6x6 Designer Series Paper Pad: Garden Green, Real Red, Pool Party, Blushing Bride and Lemon Lime Twist. Very fresh and a little different for Christmas.

Here's the cards I have come up with for today.

I love the little triangles as trees. So simple, and there are lots of options for stars with the enamel shapes available in each colour range, as well as metallic.

On this card I have also used one of the Stitched Shape Framelits which are part of this product suite. The best way to adhere these is either with Tombow Multipurpose Glue, or even a hot glue gun . You can also see the Quilt Top Embossing Folder from the product suite in this card. I really love how it adds to the quilt theme.

Here's another sample using a couple more of the stamps from the Christmas Quilt stamp set. You can also see another of the Stitched Felt Shapes and the coordinating Quilted Christmas ribbon, plus one of the gold foil snowflakes.

I have used the lovely Hearts Come Home stamp set for my greeting, with the house stamped in Lemon Lime twist and the greeting in Dapper Denim. I've popped a Dapper Denim enamel heart on the greeting circle, and placed that onto a sunburst punched shape in Tranquil Tide to tie in the colours in the patterned paper.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 14 with Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack

Hello  crafty friends. It's time for Heart of Christmas Week 14! I hope your Christmas card stash is starting to take shape as much as mine :) This weekly Christmas card blogging commitment has really helped with my motivation. The fabulous new Holiday Catalogue starts selling on Friday 1st September too, so you will be able to get your hands on the fabulous new Christmas products.

Carrying on from the team blog hop last week, I have had more of a play with the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack. These are multipurpose cards which can be used for pocket style scrapbooking, traditional scrapbooking or even made into cards. Last week I used them in scrapbooking and one card, and today I have made 3 more Christmas cards using cards from the pack.

For this card I have used one of the 3x4 cards, with one of the 6x4 overlays (included in the pack). My card base is Tranquil Tide, and the base paper Merry Music Designer Series Paper (also in the Holiday Catalogue).

MMcard 1

Extra embellishments added to the card were some glimmer paper, some adhesive Rhinestone jewels and the beautiful 7/8" striped ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue.

Mmcard1a

For this card I have just used one of the black and white 3x4" cards, and teamed it with some Merry Music Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst cardstock. My embellishments this time are coordinating Berry Burst ribbon (from the Annual Catalogue), silver mini sequin trim, silver metallic thread and one of the new Year of Cheer embellishments from the Holiday Catalogue.

Mmcard 2

For my last card I have used another of the 3x4" cards, and used some of the cardstock stickers with Rhinestone jewels as the embellishment. My base cardstock is Cherry Cobbler and the Olive Olive paper is from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper stack. At the base of the card I have embellished with a cardstock strip cut using the Decorative Ribbon border punch.

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.

Graphic

 

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?
