Hey there. Time for some more Christmas inspiration. We are up to Week 12 of the Art with Heart team Heart of Christmas. Just 3 weeks to go after this week.

For today's card, I have a gift holder for you. It was made using the lovely Peaceful Noel stamp set and Sprig Punch.

It opens up to have a pocket for a gift card inside.

It was fun creating all the foliage around the edge. I just used a pencil to trace the oval shape, stamped around that, rubbed the pencil our and added the top layers. The twig punch adds some great texture and dimension.

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team PINK October Blog Hop

Think pink

Yeah, it's Art With Heart team monthly blog hop time. This month, our lovely team member who organises the blog hop, Ros Davidson, has chosen all things PINK as our theme. This is a great theme for spring, and also breast cancer awareness month. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative with the various shades of pink that Stampin’ Up! offer in our collection of 53 different colours available. 

I hope chosen pink and pretty for my card tonight.

The pink I have chosen is POWDER PINK, which is one of the 2016-2018 In Colours. It's a lovely soft pink which although it isn't listed as a coordinating colour (two other pinks are though),coordinates beautifully with the soft colours in the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper Pack. This paper is so beautiful and feminine. I have also used some Soft Sea Foam and Smoky Slate in there. The Framelits I have used in all of the layering are: Stitched Labels, Stitched Shapes and and the Flourish Thilits. My greeting is from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set.

Heart of Christmas Week 8 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

 

Welcome to Week 8 of our Heart of Christmas weekly blog hops. I'm actually having a week off this week as I enjoy the second week of school holidays with my boys and my Mum and sister who are visiting from interstate. One of my team members (Ros Davidson)  is hosting the blog hop names, and I will refer you to her blog at the end of my post.

For today's card, I am showing you another way to use the copper wire star embellishments. I really love these, and the coordinating Joyous Noel DSP with the lovely copper foil accents.

I have copper embossed my image, so that it coordinates with the DSP. I love the look of the Merry Merlot shimmer paper with the DSP too. To attach the wire stars, I used some Tear 'n Tape double sided tape for the pieces that would be under the circle (this did most of the work), and then a glue dot for the bit that was showing.

Now it's time to head over to Ros Davidson's blog as Ros is hosting the blog hop this week while I take a week off.

Thanks for stopping by this week. Have a happy and creative week,

Claire

Week 18 AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop - Fresh Fig

  Colour Creations 300

Fresh Fig color

Welcome to week 18 of Colour Creations from the Art with Heart Team. This week's colour is one of the 2017 Incolours, Fresh Frig. It's a beautiful deep colour which I love! It's actually quite similar to the colour of my bridesmaid dresses many years ago. Today I have used it with Soft Sea Foam, Powdered Pink and Bermuda Bay.

I love colouring this bauble. We don't have Fresh Fig or Powdered Pink Stampin' Blends, so I used light Blackberry Bliss and light Flirty Flamingo respectively. I have added some texture after the colouring, by running it through the Subtle embossing folder in the BigShot. The other embossing folder used on the Powder Pink layer is Tufted, which was a new one in this years Annual Catalogue. I have already used it so much!

Heart of Christmas Week 7 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Today for our Heart of Christmas blog hop, I have recreated a fabulous swap card from my recent Stampin' Up! trip to Alaska. The card was by Jill Taylor, our VP of sales at Stampin' Up! in Utah. Here s Jill's card:

I adapted it to our C6 size card, and used patterned paper instead of ribbon for the banner.

Joyful Noel and Timeless Tidings 2018 Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I'm really in love with the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper. I love the neutral Grey Granite background, and the copper foil highlights are great for some extra Christmas wow. It looks great with the coordinating colours of Shaded Spruce (my new go to green) and Merry Merlot, a deep burgundy red.
