Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 10
August 02, 2017
Yeah, we are into double figures with the Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas for 2017, bought to you by the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. Welcome to week 10 - how exciting!
I've had a pretty overwhelming week that past week (in fact it actually started right when last week's post went live), with a very close friend having a really difficult time and spending some time in hospital. It's so difficult when people you love are sick isn't it, much more so of course for her and her family and that's hard to watch too? I found myself a bit dazed and not quite with it for much of the week, so today's card is a very quick card which luckily I had made earlier last week. Sometimes the simple cards are the best so I hope you like it.
I've used the new Carols of Christmas bundle which is in my last post (in fact this is one of the cards). I really like the big bold sentiments in this stamp set. Being red rubber, they are perfect to use Stampin' Write Markers with to get multi-coloured greetings (I have used Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler). This bold striped Cherry Cobbler paper is from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper (in the annual catalogue).
The Art with Heart girls will have been much more on the ball than me this week so pop on over to their blog for some more Christmas inspiration.
Sending big hugs to anyone who is feeling unwell or battling an illness at the moment. I hope you are feeling much better really soon.
See you back here soon for some Holiday Catalogue sneak peeks.
Love your card Claire. I love the idea of multi-colouring the greeting, it looks great! And that diagonal design on the DSP has really lifted the focal image even more. The gold sequin trim looks lovely and ties in nicely with baubles. :)

Claire I love how the size of these sentiments make for quick and easy cards that look striking, and this card of yours is simply gorgous!

Beautiful card, Claire. The candy striped background is perfect with the bold greeting. Love the touch of bling too.

Your card is fabulous, Claire. It's great to see some truly quick and easy cards, as so many of us leave our card making until the last minute and need inspiration for these cards. I hope your friend is feeling better now x
