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

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.

Here's a closer look at each of the cards. The video explains anything not obvious that I have done on each of these cards (and shows things like the sparkle effects I created) much better.

Stampin' Up! Whimsy and Wonder 2021 Christmas Cards

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Today I have a Stampin' Up! Whimsy and Wonder suite Christmas card for you as part of the Stampin' Up! Australia Art with Heart Team Heart of Christmas blog hop Week 16. It was quick to whip up 3 of these cards on the weekend, using this beautiful suite of products.

I was really pleased how these turned out. I really love the Whimsy and Wonder Designer Series Paper, and the pop of Polished Pink is fresh and bright. I also like the contrast of the Shaded Spruce stamped tree with the die cut Mint Macaron trees, both in colour and form. I've used a sentiment from Peaceful Deer.

My colours are Soft Succulent, Crumb Cake and Evening Evergreen. I have stamped off some of the trees in the background and love how that creates the look of a forest. The Holiday Rhinestones add just the right amount of festive bling.

Happy Holly Days Stampin Up Christmas Card

Heart of Christmas Header 2021

Hello friends. Time for another Christmas blog hop with the Art with Heart team. How is your Christmas card making going? There is plenty of time to get started and I hope the ideas we present each week are inspiring you.

Today's card features the cute little bird from Happy Holly Days stamp set, which is in the Stampin Up July to December mini catalogue. This stamp set also can be purchased in a bundle with a coordinating Holly Border Punch, but I have just used the stamp set today. View the punch and the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.

Happy Holly Days 2021 Stampin Up Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

I have watercoloured the bird, holly and berries using water painters, ink from the inside of my ink pad lids, and Fluid 100 watercolour paper. This set doesn't have any dies, so I fussy cut which was pretty easy using my paper snips. I attached some of the gold fabric holly leaves to the underside of the coloured holly, and then attached that all to the bird with a Dimensional, and the bird to a die cute Ornate Layers shape (in Very Vanilla). My base card is Garden Green, followed by a Crumb Cake layer which has been embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder.

My sentiment is from another set in the mini catalogue called Peaceful Deer. With all that has happened in the world this year, I really love this sentiment. Here's a closer look at the Happy Holly Days stamp set.

Now it's time to visit the rest of the Art with Heart team girls. Next up we have the lovely Christine Blain.
