Happy Holly Days Stampin Up Christmas Card

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello friends. Time for another Christmas blog hop with the Art with Heart team. How is your Christmas card making going? There is plenty of time to get started and I hope the ideas we present each week are inspiring you.

Today's card features the cute little bird from Happy Holly Days stamp set, which is in the Stampin Up July to December mini catalogue. This stamp set also can be purchased in a bundle with a coordinating Holly Border Punch, but I have just used the stamp set today. View the punch and the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.

Happy Holly Days 2021 Stampin Up Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

I have watercoloured the bird, holly and berries using water painters, ink from the inside of my ink pad lids, and Fluid 100 watercolour paper. This set doesn't have any dies, so I fussy cut which was pretty easy using my paper snips. I attached some of the gold fabric holly leaves to the underside of the coloured holly, and then attached that all to the bird with a Dimensional, and the bird to a die cute Ornate Layers shape (in Very Vanilla). My base card is Garden Green, followed by a Crumb Cake layer which has been embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

My sentiment is from another set in the mini catalogue called Peaceful Deer. With all that has happened in the world this year, I really love this sentiment. Here's a closer look at the Happy Holly Days stamp set.

The Ornate Layers die cut is the perfect complement to that sweet bird, Claire. So pretty. I like that you adorned its tail with holly!

Your gorgeous watercoloured bird looks beautiful against the vanilla ornate die cut panel. I love the pops of gold with the holly leaves & dots.

Oh this is simply divine, Claire - your watercolouring is superb. I love the Ornate Layers die cut with this bird1

Your water coloured bird is so very pretty Claire and beautifully done. I didn’t realise how small the gold holly leaves were, they are so sweet and add another lovely touch of gold along side the gold metallic dots.

Claire your bird, Holly and berries are beautifully watercoloured. Love the embossed background and ornate frame that gives your card a sweet vintage look.

Oh Claire your card is simply gorgeous. The bird is coloured superbly! Love the embossed background and then everything on the ornate layer. I just can't stop looking at your card! Gorgeous!

Your bird is so sweet, and the lacy die cut suits it so well. Gorgeous card.

Claire your watercoloured bird is just beautiful and the Ornate panel compliments it beautifully

Your bird is so beautifully coloured Claire and I love the texture of the Timeworn Type embossing folder. It works so well with the ornate frame. Your card has a real vintage vibe.

The combination of the holly leaves on the tail is a great finishing touch.

Lovely card Claire. Will be making some of these if that's OK with you.
