Heart of Christmas Week 22: Stampin' Up! One Sheet Wonder

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

It's our last week of Heart of Christmas for the Art with Heart Team in 2022, so I wanted to make sure I joined in. I have used a One Sheet Wonder template that our wonderful Demonstrator Development Managers shared with us when they held a Craftalongathon for Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators. There are lots of different one sheet wonder cutting templates floating around and they make it quick and easy to make a bunch of cards.

All of the DSP I have used in these four cards came from one 6x6" piece of  Painted Season Designer Series Paper.

For two of the cards I have just embossed with the Tasteful Textures embossing folder straight onto the front layer of the Pool Party card, for the other two I cut an additional layer and embossed it with the Merry Merlot embossing folder.

For the cluster of embellishments on each card, I have sponged one of the Wonderful Snowflake embellishments (part of the Whimsy and Wonder Suite in the 2021 July to December Mini) with Pool Party ink (using a sponge dauber). I also included a piece of looped silver metallic trim (from the Simply Elegant Trim combo in the Annual Catalogue) and a little die cut tree from the Christmas Tree Dies (also part of the Whimsy and Wonder Suite in the 2021 July to December Mini). I finished off with a sentiment from Peaceful Deer stamp set, which I stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.

Stampin' Up! Eden's Garden Christmas Card

Hello friends! 

I was a bit late to get my link in for the team blog Christmas blog hop tonight, but thought I would post a card anyway. You can find the link to the team blog hop at the end of my post.

Tonight I am featuring a Christmas card using both the Eden Garden suite, and the Merriest Moments bundle.

Stampin Up Eden's Garden & Merriest Moments 2021 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper for Christmas. It combines the rich deep Evening Evergreen with the lighter Soft Succulent, and includes gold foil highlights for a festive touch. I have added some die cuts from the Eden dies, and my sentiment and label are from the merriest Moments bundle. I think the highlight of my card is the flower from the Merriest Moments bundle adorned with the beautiful Garden Jewels, and a Brushed Metallic Adhesive backed Dot in the centre.

Stampin' Up! Eden's Garden Christmas Card for Heart of Christmas Week 17

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello stampers. Today I have a new Christmas card for you, as part of my Stampin' Up! Australia Art with Heart Team's weekly Heart of Christmas blog hop. Can you believe we are up to week 17 already? Today I am using some new products which will be released for customers on November 3rd.  These are the Eden Dies (which coordinate with the Eden's Garden stamp set, although I haven't used that today), Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper and Garden Gems. I'll have more about these products and the Eden's Garden promotion later in the week.

I love the beautiful soft pattern in this paper, and the gold foiling is perfect to add a bit of festive wow. Soft Succulent is fast becoming one of my favourite greens, My base card is Evening Evergreen, another new favourite from the 2021-2023 InColors. The little gold bits peeking out from under the labels, are the ends of a die cut in the Eden Dies. I really like how they work here. The cork and Shimmery White labels are from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and are a perfect fit for my sentiment from Merriest Moments stamp set. To embellish my card, I have used some gold metallic trim from the Simply Elegant Trim pack (you get silver and gold in one pack). You can view and purchase any of the supplies used in today's card, using the links at the end of the post.

Two Stampin' Up! Gray Granite Christmas Cards for Colour Creations.

Colour Creations 2021 to 2022 logo

Hello stampers! I'm playing along with my team Colour Creations blog hop today. We are using one of my very favourite neutral colours, Gray Granite. This is a beautiful 'griege' shade - a little bit grey, a little bit beige.

GG

Since I'm right in the swing of Christmas cards right now, I have two Gray Granite Christmas cards to share with you today. The first one uses Merriest Moments bundle from the Stampin' Up! Australia July to December Mini Catalogue.

Stampin 2021 Merriest Moments Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

I have used the Merriest Moments embossing folder on the Gray Granite cardstock layer, and then used my sponge dauber to sponge on a little more Gray Granite ink to the embossed bit to highlight it some more. I've stamped the Poinsettia's in Blackberry Bliss, and added some gold embellishments. Both of these colours work great with Gray Granite.

The next card is a case of one of the free tutorials I sent my subscribers a few weeks ago. I love how the design of that one turned out, that I recreated it in Gray Granite too.

Stampin 2021 Peaceful Deer Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia

For this one I have used some of the new Ever Eden DSP, coming to customers along with coordinating embellishments and an early release bundle from the January to June mini catalogue. I have used the Evening Evergreen jewels from the 2021-22 InColor Jewels pack, some gold twine from the Simply Elegant Trim Combo and the sentiment, deer and coordinating punch are from the Peaceful Deer Bundle. That's the Timeworn Type embossing folder on the background Gray Granite piece. Such a GORGEOUS folder!

Before we move onto the next card, here's a fun blooper for you. Our lovely Simba likes to get in on the photo love sometimes when I am trying to take photos of my cards. He even looks like he is posing in this one.

Now it's time to move on and see what the next Art with Heart team member has made with Gray Granite. Next up we have the lovely Theresa Gerrard. I really enjoy her creations.

Stampin' Up! Love, Santa Tag Kit and 4 alternative Christmas Card Designs & Video

Hi friends, today I have a treat for you if you love to stamp with kits. The new Stampin' Up! Love, Santa Tag Kit is so amazing, I had to do a video about it!

Love Santa Tag Kit Alternatives by Claire Daly. Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

The Love, Santa Tag Kit is $33 and is an all inclusive (yep, including the stamps, ink and acrylic block too!) and the tags are gorgeous! I was really surprised how big they are so you have plenty of room to write on the back. They are also really bright and would be perfect for kids and grandkids too. There's even some coordinating treat bags (sold separately and you get 12 bags for $12.25).

Find the Love, Santa Tag Kit HERE in my online store.

Check out my video showing what's in the kits, the tags and hear about the cards I made.

 


I'm really please how these cards and tags turned out. The kit is amazing value and I am sure you will have bits and pieces in your craft stash which you could use to make some of the tags into Christmas cards if you wanted to.
