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.

Graphic

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.

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.

Stampin' Up! Hearts Come Home for Heart of Christmas #23

Hello ladies, time for this week's Heart of Christmas inspiration post bought to you by the Art with Heart team.

Graphic

This week I have used up a left over piece from the Hometown Greetings Edgelit dies in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. It just fitted into the largest oval shape from the Layering Ovals Framelits.

I have watercoloured the piece of watercolor paper behind the edgelits using Island Indigo ink. When that was dry I stamped the sleigh in Island Indigo, and placed it behind the card which I had embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. My greeting is from Merry Patterns, and then finished off with some Night of Navy crinkled seam binding.

Stampin' Up! Cheery Chirps for Heart of Christmas Week 18

Welcome to week 18 of Heart of Christmas, and lots more inspiration for your Christmas creating.

Graphic

I had so much fun playing with the Cheery Chirps stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue this week. It's such a lovely set and perfect for watercolouring.

Stampin Up Cheery Chirps Christmas 2017 cards by Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For the first card, I took inspiration from the sample in the Holiday Catalogue. I used a combination of Aqupainters and Blender Pens, as I find Belender Pens have more control for smaller areas, with the Aquapainters best for the colour wash and larger areas. My colours are Real Red, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sky.

I also used the Touches of Texture stamp set from the Annual Catalogue, to add some background stamping (Soft Sky ink on Soft Sky).

For my second card, I took colouring inspiration from the lovely Teneale Williams, using  Real Red and Crumb Cake for the bird, Always Artichoke for the leaves and Soft Sky for the background. My greeting on the cards is from Merry Patterns.

I have also used one of the Touches of Texture stamps on the background of this card. To finish my card, I have added a bit of Burlap Trim, Linen Thread and a lace doily .

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You and Lemon Lime Twist with Embossing Paste

It was a grey drizzly day in Melbourne today (it's late winter here), so I needed a bright card to show you. 

I think this one works! I find myself coming back often to use this happy image from the Beautiful You stamp set. It's applicable to so many different cards  I think, but especially congratulations cards.

Stampin Up Beautiful You stamp set, lemon Lime Twist and embossing paste. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

My colour combination is Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point. I added some texture to the Lemon Lime Twist layer by using some embossing paste coloured with Lemon Lime Twist re-inker, and then used the diamond mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My image is coloured using the watercolour pencils. I used a greeting for the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set which fits beautifully in the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin' Up! Heartland Birthday and Thinking of You cards.

I love this gorgeous image in the Heartland stamp set. In fact as a country girl at heart (I was born in the wheatbelt of Western Australia and lived on farms until my late teens), this whole stamp set really jumped out at me in the 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Heartland Thinking of You and male  birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

It was the perfect image for my father in laws birthday card, and I also made a ''thinking of you' card to send to my Mum, as I think this image will really appeal to her as well.

For my Mum's card, I also wanted to try out my new Marbled Background stamp (stamped in Emerald Envy onto an Emerald Envy layer on a Dapper Denim card base). I watercoloured the image (stamped onto a piece of Shimmery White cut from the Stitched Shapes framelits) using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils.

To finish my card, I added a few simple embellishments: a leaf die cut from Eclectic Layers thinlits that I had lying around in my 'bits and pieces' bowl, some of the Dapper Denim washi tape from the Basic 3 Washi Tape and one of the Touches of Nature wooden elements.

For the birthday card I embossed the Emerald Envy layer using the Polka Dot basics embossing folder (note that the image in the catalogue is incorrect for this folder, the dots are actually further spaced as shown here).  The image was coloured the same, but stamped onto one of the circle Stitched Shapes Thinlits. For my embellishments I have added some Burlap Trim and Linen Thread, with some gold metallic shapes. I have used the Happy Birthday greeting from Happy Birthday gorgeous which is a great fit for the Pretty Label punch.

Here's a closer look at the Heartland stamp set (available in wood mount or clear mount red rubber) and the Basics Washi Tape #3 pack. I find this a great combo set because it has 5 different blues to coordinate with all your projects! We also have a green set of 5, pink set of 5 and black and white themed set.

If you are a country girl like me, or enjoy watercolouring, Heartland is a great stamp set for you!
