Stampin' Up! Merry Music Specialty DSP for Art with Heart Team HOC26

Hello and thanks for stopping by today. Today is the second last week of my Art with Heart team girls Heart of Christmas series for 2017. This is week 26.

It's getting to the point where many people are in need of super quick and easy Christmas cards which can easily be done in a batch, and this week's card definitely fits this criteria.

You need three pieces of coordinating DSP. I have used Merry Music Specialty DSP and Merry Little Christmas DSP but you could use any coordinating papers. The base card is 1/2 A$ cardstock cut vertically to make a standard C6 top folding card. The measurements for each piece of DSP are:

  • Left: 1 13/16" wide by 5 5/8" long or 4.6cm x 14.2cm
  • Top right: 2" wide x 3.5" long or 5.1cm x 8,8cm
  • Bottom right: 2" wide x 2" long; or 5.1cm x 5.1cm

The centre circle is 2.5" diameter and the stamped greeting is rom one of the Christmas sets in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, Peace This Christmas. I have used a variety of embellishments around the greetings including Metallic Enamel Shapes, Glitter Enamel Shapes and Adhesive Rhinestone Jewels. For the Silver Mini Sequin Trim, you need about 30-35cm under each circle.

Stampin' Up! Just Add Color DSP with Stampin' Blends

 

A few weeks ago I had a play doing some colouring with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Instead of colouring stamped images, I used some 6x6 pieces of Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper. his is a heavy weight paper already printed with lots of great images, and the Stampin' Blends work beautifully with it.

I recently turned the colouring into cards, and here's what I came up with.

Colours in this one are Smokey Slate base card, with Pool Party and Calypso Coral. I used the Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends, and finished off with some Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon (just LOVING this ribbon recently).

This one was Smoky Slate base, with Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. My greeting is from Window Shopping stamp set.

For the label, I extended the length of the Everyday Label punch, and popped an embossed circle behind for some balance. Like how that turned out. I think this one migt be a good card for a male family member or friend.

I love succulents and was happy how this one turned out. Base card is Old Olive embossed with Petal Burst embossing folder. I have used Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Markers.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer DSP for Art with Heart team Heart of Christmas #25

Hello ladies, it's time to bring you this week's Heart of Christmas inspiration piece.

Graphic

Today my card is based on the foiled specialty paper Year of Cheer. This is a beautiful paper for Christmas and has silver, platinum, gold and copper foiling through it.  My greeting is from the Hearts Come Home stamp set and is embossed in Copper to match the small piece of Year of Cheer DSP underneath. The base card is Crumb Cake.

The largest circle is cut from Platinum foil paper (in the Holiday Catalogue) with the 2 & 1/4" punch and the smaller circle which has the greeting on it is cut with the 1 & 3/4" circle punch. Other than that it's just a bit of silver mini sequin trim.

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! 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.

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