Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 3

Graphic

Oopsy. It's Thursday not Wednesday for Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas 2017 this week. My lovely Art with Heart team girls were all ready for Wednesday, but I have a rough parenting week with kids being awake overnight, and with the long weekend thought yesterday was still Tuesday!! At least I'm human right?

I love how this week's card turned out though. I really like how the new Tranquil Tide comes together with Real Red and Shimmery White. This little reindeer is from Santa's Sleigh Thinlits (page 214 in the Annual Catalogue or click on the link at the bottom of the page). These are super versatile Thinlits for Christmas. The background stamping is rom Lovely as a Tree.

This is definitely a Christmas card you could make multiples of. My advice would be to die cut all the pieces beforehand and make an assembly line. If you ddn't want to use the Incolour felt bows, you could use ribbon or twine to cut down the cost. I wove a little silver metallic thread around mine too. I also wanted to point out the border punch at the top of the card. This is a brand new punch and actually has two different edges: a small scallop and the lace edge. I think I'm going to use this a lot!

Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team's Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 2

Graphic

It's Wednesday, so time for our Heart of Christmas Art with Heart Team showcase of Christmas creations for you. I'm finding this so fun and feel very accomplished to already have some Christmas cards ready for this year!

Today I wanted to use two of the new 2017 Stampin' Up! InColours with the Star of Light stamp set and coordinating Startlight Thinlits. I have used Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide. I love how these turned out.

I made one of each base colour, and mixed up the colours of the die cuts and stamping. These were pretty quick and simple to do and I think would make a good production line card.

The Tranquil Tide colour is quite dark, but the lemon Lime Twist really lifts and brightens it I think. I also like the look of the clear faceted gems and adhesive rhinestones with these colours.

I made this one second, and added a little extra stamping onto the Shimmery White piece behind the die cuts.

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.

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.
