Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 14 with Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack
August 30, 2017
Hello crafty friends. It's time for Heart of Christmas Week 14! I hope your Christmas card stash is starting to take shape as much as mine :) This weekly Christmas card blogging commitment has really helped with my motivation. The fabulous new Holiday Catalogue starts selling on Friday 1st September too, so you will be able to get your hands on the fabulous new Christmas products.
Carrying on from the team blog hop last week, I have had more of a play with the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack. These are multipurpose cards which can be used for pocket style scrapbooking, traditional scrapbooking or even made into cards. Last week I used them in scrapbooking and one card, and today I have made 3 more Christmas cards using cards from the pack.
For this card I have used one of the 3x4 cards, with one of the 6x4 overlays (included in the pack). My card base is Tranquil Tide, and the base paper Merry Music Designer Series Paper (also in the Holiday Catalogue).
Extra embellishments added to the card were some glimmer paper, some adhesive Rhinestone jewels and the beautiful 7/8" striped ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue.
For this card I have just used one of the black and white 3x4" cards, and teamed it with some Merry Music Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst cardstock. My embellishments this time are coordinating Berry Burst ribbon (from the Annual Catalogue), silver mini sequin trim, silver metallic thread and one of the new Year of Cheer embellishments from the Holiday Catalogue.
For my last card I have used another of the 3x4" cards, and used some of the cardstock stickers with Rhinestone jewels as the embellishment. My base cardstock is Cherry Cobbler and the Olive Olive paper is from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper stack. At the base of the card I have embellished with a cardstock strip cut using the Decorative Ribbon border punch.
Now it's time to see what some of the other Art with Heart team girls are up to for Heart of Christmas this week.
Thanks for checking out our Heart of Christmas posts this week.
Have a fabulous week,
Great cards, Claire, but my favourite, is the Merry and Bright one. I love that folded corner with the stamp behind!

Such great cards Claire, how versatile are those little 3x4 cards? Out of the three, my favourite is the Merry and Bright one. I love the black background of the Merry Music on the Berry Burst. :)

You have done it again Claire and I can't wait to get started. Such lovely colours and as I have now done my very late 'spring cleaning' I am now ready to get on with my Christmas cards for real. Thanks for all the lovely new ideas and colours.
Love and hugs, Jessie x
