Hey friends, I am excited because I FINALLY got to participate in our team Heart of Christmas Blog Hop. This is the 6th consecutive year our lovely Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team ladies have put on Heart of Christmas. It's an activity our team really enjoys. Today is week 3, but at the end of the post I will also add links to weeks 1 and 2.
I'm showcasing two new products from the Stampin' Up! July to December mini catalogue today. The Spruced Up bundle, and the Celebrate Everything Host Designer Series paper (page 87). This paper is able to redeem with Stampin' Rewards and I have also been giving sample packs to my purchasing customers (and will be again for any orders in July). It's so bright and happy and has some great designs. It's 12x12" in size, and this shows one of the 6x6" 12 sheet sample packs I'm giving (minus the couple of bits I used!).
My first Christmas card uses the black and white Christmas tree design from this paper. I have combined it with some of the bright and happy trees cut from the Spruced Up bundle (I particularly love the outline deigns). I have used Parakeet Party for my base card, and Parakeet Party, Shaded Spruce and Pool Party for the trees. One tip when using these dies; this is one of those instances where the adhesive sheets are super handy, especially for the outline dies.
Me sentiment from the Spruced Up stamp set is embossed in white onto Polished Pink cardstock. I finished up with some clear Rhinestone jewels and some silver metallic thread (in the Simply Elegant trim combo).
My second card uses the same bundle and another sheet from the DSP, but I have added in the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder and the cute Caravan from the Tree Lot Saleabration dies. These dies are SO awesome and coordinate with the Trees for Sale stamp set (see all the details in my previous blog post).
I have used one of the stitched circles from the Stylish Shapes dies to highlight the trees a bit more. The base card is Pool Party. Is the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder a fun design?
Now it's time to see what the rest of the Art with Heart team have made for this week's Hear of Christmas. Next up we have our lovely Kathryn Ruddick. I'm looking forward to seeing what she has created this week.
If you get lost anywhere along the way, head over to our Heart of Christmas blog hop coordinator Sharon Davern's blog as she has a lit of participants there. You can also find Week 1 and 2 of the blog hop via Sharon's blog. Week 1 is here, and Week 2 is here.
Thanks for joining us tonight,
