Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments for Art With Heart team HOC 24

Hello ladies. Today the Art with Heart Team is bringing you week 24 of Heart of Christmas.

Today's card is created using the Snowflake Sentiments bundle from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I really like the simplicity of this card.

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits. Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Before I cut the snowflakes, I created a watercolour wash using Pool Party and Island Indigo ink on watercolor paper. Once it was throughly dry (with the help of my trusty heat tool), I cut the snowflakes from pieces which had variations in colour (tip: the biggest snowflake is from the border die piece and 'detached' with paper snips). Then it was just a matter of attaching them with a glue dot and embellishing with Glimmer Dots and adhesive Rhinestones. My greeting from Snowflake Sentiments is heat embossed in silver.

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.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 13 with my favourite Holiday Catalogue bundle.

It's Wednesday, so time for some more Christmas cards with the Art with Heart Team. We are up to week 13 with our Heart of Christmas series.

Graphic

Today I have played with my absolute favourite bundle in the new Holiday Catalogue (coming September 1st), the Hearts Come Home Bundle. There are so many beautiful elements to this bundle, I can see I will be making many cards with it. 

These cards were so hard to photograph with all the shiny bits on the Glossy White Cardstock and the Champagne Foil Sheets. The rows of houses are actually cut from the Champagne foil sheets here, although its quite hard to see. I wanted to join a couple of bits together on this card so added a couple more bits as a layer to hide the join in the die cts.

My base card is Fresh Fig, which I am loving! I have sponged a combination of Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Fresh Fig onto the Glossy White cardstock. The greeting and sleigh / reindeers are stamped in Fresh Fig. To get the moon I used a mask cut with the 1 3/4" circle punch (I cut it from a post it note) and sponged over it initially, then a bit of light spongeing once it was removed.

I did a landscape and portrait orientation version of this card.

I hope you have liked this weeks samples. I already have lots more ideas in mind for this fabulous bundle, so stay turned.

No lets look at what the Art With Heart team girls have been up this week shall we?

Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird Christmas Card for 2017

Hello there my crafty friends. 

You will recall that last Wednesday when I posted my Heart of Christmas week 8 card, I promised to come back and show you another version of the card updated with 2017 colours. Here it is!

Swirly-Bird-Christmas-2017-

This was a super quick card to whip up, and as I mentioned last week you can use any patterned paper and just coordinate colours with it. I have used Fig Tree from the 2017-19 InColour paper Stack. Neither the paper or the Swirly Bird bundle are Christmas specific products, but I think this card works well for Christmas still. (the greeting is from Oh, What Fun in the Annual Catalogue). Here's a closer look at the silver bits I added, and the Soft Sky watercolour wash.

Here's the colours I have used.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 8

Hello lovelies. We are now up to week 8 of Heart of Christmas bought to you by the Stampin' Up! Art with Heart team! I hope you are enjoying playing along and you are getting some great ideas for your 2017 Christmas cards.

Optimised-HOC

My family have just returned home from the Thailand Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip which was so fun! I hope to do some posts over the coming week about that. Even though it wasn't so far to travel this year, I'm struggling a bit getting my act together after the overnight trip home. Both my own and the kids sleep routine is still a bit messed up so no lot a lot s getting done since we arrived home a couple of days ago.

Given that,  I hope you don't mind if I cheat a little this week by posting a card that uses a current stamp set and bundle and was my most pinned Christmas card of last year. I love this card because if it is super simple to do a batch of. 

Optimised-swirly-bird

You could also use any patterned paper you have and just pick up two contrasting colours on it to use with the Swirly Birds bundle and the enamel shapes. Later in the week I will post a new version of this card using a current paper so you can see how easy it is to adapt.

Optimised-bird

Of course the Art with Heart team girls have been super busy coming up with new  2017 Christmas card inspiration for you. Please pay them a visit and see what they have been creating.
