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.
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.
Now it's time to visit the rest of the Art with Heart team girls. Next up we have the lovely Christine Blain.
Thanks for checking in today. Have a great day,
