Stampin' Up! Heart of Christmas Week 9: Spreading the joy of creativity for a handmade Christmas.

Hello friends. It's time for our weekly dose of Christmas inspiration. It's week 9. I hope you are enjoying our weekly posts. Have you started making your Christmas cards yet?

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

Today's card features a stamp set that has been very popular in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. It's called Beauty and Joy. I was drawn to it because it reminded me of the beautiful stone pots and planters I admired in Europe. Isn't it lovely?

Here's the card I made with it.

I've used Mossy Meadow as the base card and stamped the tree in Mossy Meadow with Early Espresso for the trunk. The urn is stamped in the Celestial Copper Delicata metallic ink pad. I LOVE these ink pads. Have you seen my latest You Tube video showing 4 techniques to use with them? My You Tube channel link is in top right corner.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Night Before Christmas 6x6" DSP pack.  The greeting is from the Night before Christmas Memories and More Card Pack and the embellishments are the Star Designer Elements (all product links below the post).

Heart of Christmas Week 4 - Sharing the Joy of Christmas Creativity.

Welcome back to the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Heart of Christmas Blog Hop for week 4. Our aim is to spread the joy of Christmas creating as far and wide as we can.

This week I am all about silver and shimmer!

Step by step instructions on blog, Detailed Deer dies, woodland embossing folder 2019 Christmas card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This was actually a super fast card to make! Here's what I did:

  1. Prepared a top folding standard C6 size (1/2 A4 cut vertically and folded) using Seaside Spray cardstock.
  2. Cut a second layer of Seaside spray cardstock 9.8cm x 14cm (o4 3 & 13/16 x 6.5 inches)
  3. Emboss this layer using the Woodland embossing folder. 
  4. Using a sponge dauber and your Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink pad, sponge silver metallic ink over the embossed parts of the tree and branches. Put aside to dry for 10-15 minutes. (Tip: The manufacturer recommends not speeding up the drying time with heat, as it diminishes the lustre of the stamped image). Once dry, adhere to the card base using Multipurpose Glue or Snail.
  5. Die cut a nested label using whisper white cardstock. I have used the second largest one.
  6. Stamp a greeting bottom left side of the label, using the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink. Set aside to dry for 10 minutes.
  7. Die cut the deer shape from Detailed Deer (in the Annual Catalogue). Adhere with Dimensionals onto the nested label (you can also add a glue dot to the antlers). Add three small rhinestones around the deer.
  8. Adhere this whole nested piece to the centre of the card using Dimensionals.

I'm obsessed with the Delicata inks right now.  Hands down the BEST metallic inks I have ever used. Air dries in 10-15 minutes, no smudging and has great lustre. It would be pretty quick and easy to whip up a batch of these Christmas cards too.

Art With Heart Team August Blog Hop - It's Christmas Creating Time!

Aug bh

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Christmas projects, many featuring products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue which starts on the 4th of September. If you would like a copy of the 2019 - 2020 Annual catalogue or the new Holiday catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

I've had sick kids all week and also unwell myself for a couple of days, so I have only been able to put together one card for you today. As soon as I saw this paper in the Night Before Christmas paper pack in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue, I knew it would be perfect for a Santa and sleigh scene. Luckily we have just the die in the new Holiday Catalogue. It's part of the Jolly Seasons die pack on page 25.

I have also used the Merry Christmas dies and the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (both now in the Annual Catalogue). The die cut pieces are cut from Silver glimmer paper and I have used some contrasting DSP in the Night Before Christmas paper pack to balance the card. I also added a Mossy Meadow bow, using the linen thread in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack .

This was a pretty quick card to make, and I really like how it turned out. I will be using this die set lots more. I'm really beginning to warm to the retro patterns and colours in the Night Before Christmas DSP.

Heart of Christmas Week 2 - Sharing the Joy of Christmas Creativity.

Excited to be back with you for week 2 of the Art With Heart Stampin' Up!' team's Heart of Christmas. We love sharing the joy of Christmas Creativity.

This week's card is all about copper! Our new Brightly Gleaming Suite in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (starting September 4th - have you got your copy?) has a beautiful copper foil theme, which will add real WOW to your Christmas projects.

Stampin Up, Brightly Gleaming, Christmas Gleaming, 2019, Holiday Catalog, Christmas Card. By Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This suite contains a stamp set and a punch pack duo for 2 sizes of ornaments. In addition to the copper foil accented Designer Series Paper, there are also some gorgeous embellishments in this suite. A ribbon with copper foil writing, some foil elements and the cute copper Star Designer Elements I have used on this card. This catalogue also introduces the Delicata metallic ink pads to our range.  These ink pads give a fabulous lustre stamped finish. They take a little longer to dry (10 minutes air dry and you are done) and it's recommended not to heat dry as it can reduce the lustre. I have used Celestial Copper Delicata ink pad for my greeting (which is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in this suite). It's very hard to capture the gorgeous lustre in a photo.
