Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 6

Hello lovely friends, time for some more 2017 Christmas card inspiration from the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team.

This week I have used Merry Mistletoe from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue again, but in a completely different way. It's a very versatile set and I love the greetings in it. I have used the Stampin' Write Markers (in Fresh Fig and Old Olive) direct to rubber technique for my coloured image.

To make the background squares, I have used:

  • 4 squares of Berry Burst cardstock 1.5" x 1.5" and they have been embossed using the Garden Trellis embossing folder and then 2 of the corners punched with a corner rounder.
  • These were then attached to 4 squares on 1 5/8" which also had two corners rounded.
  • They were then arranged allowing 1/4" between each piece (I used a ruler and pencil to mark the centre spot and then arranged them around that).

The circle piece over the top is a 2.5" circle (which has one of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers attached (love these - see all products in the links below my signature). The stamped circle is 1 3/4".

Fresh fig and Berry Burst work so well together don't you think? I love this colour combination for Christmas cards.

Stampin' Up! Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - BigShot sandwich and tips.

Hello friends. Today I have a quick and easy card for you as I wanted to show you how amazing and  multidimensional the beautiful new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder is. You can find this folder on page 211 of Stampin' Up!'s new 2017 Annual Catalogue, or HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

  Stampin Up Layered Leaves Embossing folder and Label Me Pretty. 2017 Annual Catalogue. Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

These folders are thicker than our standard embossing folders (to accommodate the extra dimension), so here are a few tips to get a great result:

  • Just use one sheet of cardstock and spritz each side lightly with water before you put it into the folder.
  • Set up your BigShot sandwich with the BigShot base plate on the bottom, the folder next (with the spine going into the BigShot first), and then just one acrylic plate on top.
  • Roll the folder through the BigShot one way, and then while the very end of the folder is still under the pressure of the BigShot roller, roll back the other way and out.
  • If you are inpatient like me, you can dry any remaining damp spots on the cardstock with your heat gun.

Stampin' Up! have got a great video on how to use these folders:

 

I love the variation in depth of impression this Layered Leaves folder gives and can see I will be using it on lots of projects. Doesn't it look amazing in the new Incolour Lemon Lime Twist?

I have used a few other of my favourite new Stampin' Up! products on this card too. The new Berry Burst ink and cardstock, the beautiful new Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, the new Pretty Label Punch and the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set. You can link to all of these products in the online store using the individual links at the end of my post.

The Pretty Label punch and matching stamp set comes in a bundle too, so that you can save 10% on the combined individual price. There are a massive 23 bundles in this years catalogue - find them all HERE in the bundles section of the online store.

Stampin' Up! At Home With You and the beautiful doors of France.

Around this time last year  our cruise ship stop in Marseille). Paris was everything I dreamed it would be, and I could wander those streets for months I think. One of the things that I loved looking at and photographing (beyond the beautiful floral balconies) were the doors. They were so beautiful and ornate. Here's a beautiful one I saw at Aix En Provence, and there are some more ones from Paris at the end of my post.

Aix En Provence ornate door France

 

It is those doors I was reminded of  and inspired by when I saw the new At Home with Me stamp set / bundle with matching At Home Framelits in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I have a things about doors at the moment!

I'm also loving the new Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack. You get 48 6x6" woodgrain designs (4 each of 12 different double sided designs). I will be using this SO MUCH! It's great for stamping directly onto as I have here.

How pretty is the Berry Burst paper in the 12x12 Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack? You also get the 4 other new InColours in the stack. The Brick Wall 6x6 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes a great textured background for this card.

It can be used for Christmas, birthdays, welcome to the street, thanks for being a great host, thanks for visiting and much much more! I LOVE all the cute scenes you can create with the extras. There are lots of sentiments too = great for use with other projects too (and they fit nicely in the Classic Label Punch).

Stampin' Up! Confetti Celebration Shaker Cards

Shaker cards are so lovely to receive, and the beautifully coloured Fancy Frost sequins from the 2016 Holiday Catalogue, make very pretty shaker cards. Here are some cards I put together to congratulate some Art With Heart Team members recently.
