Heart of Christmas Week 7 - Spreading the joy of being creative for a handmade Christmas.

Hello there. I'm back from a little study break to bring you Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart team. We are now up to week 7 - wow! Lets spread some more Christmas creating fairy dust, shall we?

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

 

Today's cards from me (yes there are two!) are all about Pretty Peacock and Copper Foil.

First up we have this cute church snowglobe card using the Still Scenes bundle from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I am SO in love with this bundle and the WOW snowglobe cards you can create with it. There are so many different configurations you can use to make cards (keep your eye out for two more Snowglobe cards I will be posting on my blog this week). 

Stampin Up 2019 Still Scenes snowglobe Christmas card using Brightly Gleaming DSP. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Brightly Gleaming DSP as the backing paper, and stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock for the piece behind the globe. The cards are super easy to put together. I will show you step by step in another blog post later in the week. The greeting for this one is from The Greatest Part of Christmas host set (check it out at the end of the post). Did you know you could choose this set for FREE using Stampin' Rewards from a $250+ order? Fot the sequins in this one, I used some old metallic sequins I had. There are great snowflake sequins in the Holiday Catalogue which I have used in the other cards later in the week.

4 Ways to use Delicata Metallic Inks on Your Stampin' Up! projects.

I am totally LOVING that Stampin' Up! are selling the Delicata metallic ink pads in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue. These are the BEST metallic inks on the market in my opinion. 

Some of the featured of these inks are:

  • Great lustre and shine that wont fade over time
  • Acid free and archival
  • Water based
  • Air dries in 10 minutes with no smudging at all once dry

We carry three colours of the full size ink pad and reinker :

Here's what they look like.

Ink

They are perfect for a range of techniques, and I have put together a video showing you how they stamp on a variety of cardstock types, as well as some techniques you can use with them on your Stampin' Up! projects. 

 

Here's a closer look at the cards I have shown in the video (the Seaside Spray reindeer card was featured yesterday in my Heart of Christmas week 4 post, and that includes step by step instructions to make that card).

In the watercolouring section of the video, I featured this Good Morning Magnolia card.

Video on blog. Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia stamp set watercoloured and highlighted with Delicata metallic ink. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used to make this card (I stamped the image in Dove Grey Stazon. Unfortunately Stampin' Up! don't carry that yet, but I love it for watercolouring when I want a lighter edge effect).

  • Stamps: Good Morning Magnolia
  • Cardstock: Shimmery White and Rococo Rose
  • Ink: Petal Pink & Rococo Rose (petals), Smoky Slate (around the image), Mossy Meadow (leaves) and Celestial Copper (centre and highlights)
  • Tools: Aquapainter
  • Embellishments: Pearl Basic Jewels, Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Linen Thread

The other card I featured was this one, showcasing the stamping and misting using Celestial Copper. The shimmery mist of Celestial Copper on the Early Espresso and Very Vanilla cardstock is much easier to see in the video close ups.

Video on blog. Stampin Up Very Versailles (2019 Annual) and Beauty and Joy (2019 Holiday) with Delicata mettalic ink used two wats.

Here's a list of the Stampin' Up! products I have used on this card (you can see the links for these products at the end of the post):

  • Stamps: Very Versailles and Beauty and Joy (Holiday Catalogue), Butterfly Wishes (greeting; from Annual Catalogue)
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Garden Green and Celestial Copper
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Early Espresso
  • Embellishments: Linen thread
  • Tools / other: Stampin' Spritzer, Isocol (rubbing alcohol)

These stamp pads are so awesome and will really add extra wow to your projects, Grab them in my online store using the links below.

Thanks for checking in today,

For my card, I have used the Detailed Bands dies again (this time the larger of the decorative filligree liks pieces, and one of the label stamps). You need this gorgeous die set in your creative stash.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Stamp Set and coordinating Tea Time Dies

Hello stamping friends.

These cards are from a couple of months ago, but I just realised I hadn't blogged them. They are some of the favourite cards I made this year and my Mother and Mother in Law loved them for their Mothers Day cards. They feature the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time dies (see the product links at the end of the post).

Stampin Up Tea Together stamp set with Country Lane Embossing Folder from the 2019 Annual Catalogue. Mothers Day card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

They both feature the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. I brayered Sahara Sand ink onto the debossed side of the folder, before I added the Shimmery White die cut cardstock and embossed. This gives you the effect shown - I was going for an antique vase effect.

I then die stamped and die cut the flowers before I watercoloured them with Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive ink.

Here's a closer look at the Tea Together stamp set and Tea Time Dies. You can buy these in my online store using the links below my signature. The Country Floral 3D folder is currently with our new die manufacturer but will be back in stock really soon. Just send me an email if you would like me to let you know when it's back in stock.
