The Art with Heart team girls are back for our third year of weekly Heart of Christmas blog hops. In these blog hops we hope to inspire you to experience and share the joy of creativity in the lead up to Christmas. Each week I will post a Christmas project on Wednesday night at 8pm, and other members of the team will do the same. Their names and links to their blog will appear below. 

My card this week uses Toile Christmas, a new stamp set in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. Even though we don't have Cardinals, I really love this set. The sentiments particularly, but the imagery with the bird, branch with berries and the swirls is gorgeous too. It's available as a cling mount stamp set, or as a bundle.

There are lots of great coodinating products for this bundle in the Toile Tidings product suite. In this card, I have used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots (one of my favourite products in the Holiday Catalogue!). the layer of vellum over the patterned paper really helps to soften the layer for the other elements.

The primary colours in the Toile Tidings Product Suite are Real Red and Garden Green, so here is my Christmas colour combination for today. I watercoloured the Cardinal with ink from the inside lid of my Real Red ink pad. Have you tried our Fluid 100 Watercolour paper yet? It's 100% cotton and AWESOME to work with.

I do love this stamp set, too, Claire, it might just have to find its way to my place. Your card is gorgeous and I really like that layer of Vellum. Thank you for organising the Heart of Christmas this year.

Cathy Proctor

Your red cardinal is beautiful Claire and the layer of vellum over the DSP really softens the card and makes your bird stand out x

Caroline

I love your cardinal Claire, it's so pretty. A lovely card in the traditional colours of red and green.

Kate Morgan

Gorgeous traditional Christmas card and I love the vellum layer, softening the busy DSP.

Brenda Just

That is a beautiful card Claire, the colour palette is gorgeous xxx

Judy May

Beautiful card, Claire and lovely colouring of the Cardinal. I love the greetings in this bundle and the extra elements.

Sharon

Claire, this is such a beautiful card. I love the little extra details under the cardinal and the velum is just the perfect touch. So gorgeous, I could look at it for hours!

Penny Hanuszak

Claire I love how you softened the background of this card with the vellum layer and the elements you've added don't overshadow the beauty of the Cardinal. Your colouring of the bird is beautiful and not too overdone. Thanks for inspiring.

Michele Taylor

Fabulous card Claire and I love the way you have colored the cardinal. The greetings in this set are great. Might have to put it on my list.

Tina Gillespie

Your bird is amazing - such vibrant colour! Awesome Christmas card.
