The Art With Heart Team Heart of Christmas 2019 Blog Hop is here!

Heart of christmas 2019 320px

The Art with Heart team girls are back for our third year of weekly Heart of Christmas blog hops. In these blog hops we hope to inspire you to experience and share the joy of creativity in the lead up to Christmas. Each week I will post a Christmas project on Wednesday night at 8pm, and other members of the team will do the same. Their names and links to their blog will appear below. 

My card this week uses Toile Christmas, a new stamp set in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. Even though we don't have Cardinals, I really love this set. The sentiments particularly, but the imagery with the bird, branch with berries and the swirls is gorgeous too. It's available as a cling mount stamp set, or as a bundle.

There are lots of great coodinating products for this bundle in the Toile Tidings product suite. In this card, I have used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots (one of my favourite products in the Holiday Catalogue!). the layer of vellum over the patterned paper really helps to soften the layer for the other elements.

The primary colours in the Toile Tidings Product Suite are Real Red and Garden Green, so here is my Christmas colour combination for today. I watercoloured the Cardinal with ink from the inside lid of my Real Red ink pad. Have you tried our Fluid 100 Watercolour paper yet? It's 100% cotton and AWESOME to work with.

Welcome to our last week of Heart of Christmas for 2018. The team and I have really enjoyed bringing you these creations each week.  Today I have a bit of a mish mash of cards for you, as I am including the last of my Christmas cards that I haven't had a chance to blog yet.

First up we have this Z-fold card featuring Dashing Deer bundle, Merry Christmas to everyone bundle, and the gorgeous Joyous Noel Designer Paper.

Next up we have this card using Feathers and Frost stamp set, and my favourite sheet of paper from the whole Holiday Catalogue (from the All is Bright DSP pack). This was a super simple card, but the gold sequin trim and foil really give it some festive WOW.

Week 25 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Lemon Lime Twist

Colour Creations 300

Hello there, welcome to another week of Colour Creations, This week we are playing with one of my favourite colours, Lemon Lime Twist. While I have lots of ideas for using this colour, I have decided this week to post the last of my Christmas card creations. Lemon Lime Twist is such a bright happy colour. It is a perfect accompaniment to the Making Spirits Bright stamp set.

Stampin Up Making Spirits Bright, 2018, Christmas, Holiday Catalogue, Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends to colour the Baubles. I also used the Daffodil Delight one to highlight the frame. I must confess I didn't intend to deboss the Oh My Stars embossing folder. It was supposed to be embossed but I liked my mistake better. That happens sometimes doesn't it?

I was happy how quickly this card came together and I have just the friend to give it to; one who brings brightness and sunshine into my life.

Now it's time to pop over to Catherine Proctor's blog, to see what the other Art With Heart team ladies have been creating with Lemon Lime Twist this week. Enjoy!

See you back here again tomorrow with our last week of Heart of Christmas for 2018.

Heart of Christmas Week 13 - Christmas creations bought to you by the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team

 

 

Welcome to week 13 of Heart of Christmas my friends.

This weeks card features Joyous Noel DSP. It's been a huge seller and Stampin' Up! have indicated this paper is likely to run out before the end of the catalogue. If you like it I would recommend getting in sooner rather than later. I love the beautiful copper foiling on it.

I have combined the DSP with the Peaceful Noel stamp set, and the Twig Punch (these two can be purchased together in a bundle to save 10%).

I love the look of the twigs cut from Copper Foil paper.

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.
