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.

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe stamp set and Garden Trellis embossing folder in a 2017 Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

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.
