Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas 2022 with the Art with Heart Team - Week 3

Final HOC Graphic 2022 400 x 400 px

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.

Claire, your colour combination is so bright and happy - I love the vibrancy of both of your cards. Just gorgeous!

Such fun and funky colours, Claire. I especially love the embossing folder and caravan dies used on your second card - just beautiful!

Very funky Christmas cards Claire, I love the pops of pink on both of the cards

Oh wow I just love the pops of colour on your cards Claire. The outline trees look fabulous against the B&W DSP. And that Parakeet Party is a stunner! Love the layering on your second card.

Two fabulous cards! The DSP and Spruced Outline Dies are two of my favourite products from the mini, and you've combined them so well!

Gosh Claire, that Polished Pink is fabulous - I never would have thought to use it for Christmas - I LOVE what you have done with it! It works so well with the caravan theme, and those very cute trees! Adding every item to my wishlist . . . . !!

Such bright and snazzy Christmas cards Claire. I especially love the second one with the caravan and that cute wreath on the door.

Love the bright and cheery modern colours of your cards, Claire. The caravan one is my favourite and that embossing folder, wow!

Claire, you have used these colourful designer series papers and dies to perfection, I would have struggled with these as they are so modern as I am a traditional christmas card maker.

I love these cards! That paper back is adorable too and I love how you have showcased it so beautifully in all your cards.

Love both of your card Claire, I love the vellum over the DSP in the first one and then the outline of the trees that is great! The caravan card is so cute. Loving all the caravan cards they really are a thing of Aussie Summer. Love that you have carried the trees through to the caravan card love the layout and the colours that you have used too!
