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).

Step by step instructions for snowglobe cards using Stampin' Up! Still Scenes bundle

Hello lovely stampers.

Back with the step by step instructions for the snow globe cards. A little bit later than planned, but with hubby away at his annual Bathurst holiday, Mum's taxi has been on extra shifts. Plus it's Spring here in Melbourne so lots of lovely fun to be had in the garden on the weekend too. Have planted the veggie gardens and have some lovely petunia seedlings to go in pots too. I love Spring and I love flowers. If you follow my Instagram, you will know I love taking pictures of my flowers as well as.  It's tome to talk about cards now though, particularly these lovely snowblobe cards using Stampin' Up! Still Scenes bundle from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.

Still Scenes

I showed you one version of these cards last week. This week I am back with two more versions, along with step by step instructions for assembling them. My first card uses the gorgeous baby and mama bear in the die set.

They are just too cute don't you think? I also layered some of the trees in there cut from the DSP (I adhered to a layer of cardstock for a bit more stiffness).

The second version of the card is the one I did the step by step instructions for. For this card I have stamped the image and coloured it using watercolour pencils. I stamped two of the images and  cut the cottage area out and popped it up for some dimension.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe cards (2019 Holiday Catalogue). Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's what you need to build the snow globe cards:

  • Still Scenes Bundle
  • Snow Globe Shaker Domes
  • Snowflake Sequins
  • Christmas patterned paper (I used Wrapped in Plaid from the Holiday Catalogue).
  • Base card (I have used Cherry Cobbler)
  • Cardstock to stamp the image on (I have used Shimmery White)
  • Watercolour pencils and Blender Pen for the colouring
  • Pool Party ink pad and a Stampin' Sponge or Sponge Dauber.
  • Mini Dimensional foam dots
  • Coordinating cardstock for the base of the dome (I have used Crimb Cake and Copper foil)
  • Crumb Cake cardstock for the greeting piece
  • Stazon Black ink for stamping the image
  • Early Espresso ink for the greeting.

Here's the steps:

1. Cut a standard top folding C6 card in Cherry Cobbler plus a layer of Cherry Cobbler 10cm 0r 3 & 15/16 inches x 14.3cm or 5 & 5/8 inches, plus a layer of patterned paper the same size (10cm x 14.3cm). Attached the patterned paper and Cherry Cobbler layers together.

2. Using the globe shaped die from the Still Scenes bundle, cut one from the top layer (the top of the snow globe cut out piece on mine is 1.6cm or 5/8 inch from the top of the layer) , and another from a peiece of Shimmery White cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

3. Stamp the cottage image in black Stazon onto the Shimmery White globe piece, and also onto a scrap of Shimmery White.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

4. Colour the images using Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. Colour the full image except cottage on the die cut piece, just the cottage and side plant on the scrap piece. I used the following colours: Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso. 

5. Cut the cottage and side plant (on left) from the scrap piece and layer them over the die cut image with mini Dimensionals. 

6. Sponge Pool Party ink around the outside.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

7. PLace some Snail Adhesive as a guide and use the top layer as a placement guide (don't adhere the top layer yet though) so that you can adher the coloured image piece to the base card.

8. Get one of the  Snow Globe Shaker Domes and remove the adhesive on one side - the side where the dome is shaped upwards. 

9. Place the dome through the top layer and it will adhere to the edges of the cardstock around the globe to hold it in place. Leave the backing adhesive in place for now.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

10. Use an Embossing Buddy to rub against the inside of the snow globe dome piece (this prevents the sequins from sticking to the inside of the dome too much).

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

11. Sprinkle sequins over the image on the base card, keeping them away from the edges. 

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

12. Remove the backing adhesive from the snow dome, and also place Snail Adhesive around the edges of the top card layer. Place that over the top of the the base card layer so your dome part is complete.

13. Cut a snow dome base piece in Crumb Cake cardstock, and a decorative layering piece from Copper foil cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Still Scenes snow globe card step by step instructions (2019 Holiday Catalogue) by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.
14. Layer and adhere these underneath the snow globe.

15. Tie a linen thread bow and adhere with a glue dot to the right side of the base of the dome. 

16. Stamp your greeting onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (in Early Espresso ink)  and trim to size, then cut banner ends (you can either use the Banner Triple Punch to do this, or freehand. The Banner Triple Punch cuts banner ends in 3 sizes and is awesome!!).

You are done!

Heart of Christmas Week 7 - Spreading the joy of being creative for a handmade Christmas.

Hello there. I'm back from a little study break to bring you Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart team. We are now up to week 7 - wow! Lets spread some more Christmas creating fairy dust, shall we?

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

 

Today's cards from me (yes there are two!) are all about Pretty Peacock and Copper Foil.

First up we have this cute church snowglobe card using the Still Scenes bundle from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I am SO in love with this bundle and the WOW snowglobe cards you can create with it. There are so many different configurations you can use to make cards (keep your eye out for two more Snowglobe cards I will be posting on my blog this week). 

Stampin Up 2019 Still Scenes snowglobe Christmas card using Brightly Gleaming DSP. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the Brightly Gleaming DSP as the backing paper, and stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock for the piece behind the globe. The cards are super easy to put together. I will show you step by step in another blog post later in the week. The greeting for this one is from The Greatest Part of Christmas host set (check it out at the end of the post). Did you know you could choose this set for FREE using Stampin' Rewards from a $250+ order? Fot the sequins in this one, I used some old metallic sequins I had. There are great snowflake sequins in the Holiday Catalogue which I have used in the other cards later in the week.

This week I have been playing with the Night Before Christmas Memories and More card pack, and the coordinating cards and envelopes. These two products together make for some very quick and easy cards, and the card pack is also great for pocket scrapbooking.

Stampin Up Night Before Christmas (2019 Holiday Catalogue) Memories and More projects by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

Here's a closer look at the products I am playing with this week. Here is the card pack.

Memories nd More

The coordinating cards and envelope pack is perfectly sized to fit the cards, and is patterned  if you want to use a smaller card.

Memories and More 2

I made three quick Christmas cards, and dressed them up a little with a few extra embellishments.

Stampin Up Night Before Christmas (2019 Holiday Catalogue) Memories and More projects by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

For this first card I added a copper star element, some red rhinestones on the tree and a stamped greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas.

For my second card I added some of the coordinating Night Before Christmas DSP, a Toile Tiding glitter enamel dot, and some red rhinestones. The Old Olice piece at the top and bottom of the 3x4 card, is from a piece of cardstock punched with the Everyday Label Punch.

For the final card, I have trimmed down one of the bigger Memories and More cards so I could add some red glimmer paper behind it for a bit more sparkle. I also added some of the Holiday Rhinestones to the stars on the card.

Finally I used some of the cards in a double-sided 6x8 pocket scrapbooking page.

A tip for keeping photos in place in the top loading pocket pages. I cut a strip from one of the coordinating cards and made banner ends in it. I then folded this over the top of the top pocket and adhered it each side. I decorated it with an embellishment sticker from the kit and a couple of rhinestones. This keeps the top photos from falling out of the pockets.

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.
