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.

Heart of christmas 2019 full size

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.

Art With Heart Team August Blog Hop - It's Christmas Creating Time!

Aug bh

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Christmas projects, many featuring products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue which starts on the 4th of September. If you would like a copy of the 2019 - 2020 Annual catalogue or the new Holiday catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

I've had sick kids all week and also unwell myself for a couple of days, so I have only been able to put together one card for you today. As soon as I saw this paper in the Night Before Christmas paper pack in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue, I knew it would be perfect for a Santa and sleigh scene. Luckily we have just the die in the new Holiday Catalogue. It's part of the Jolly Seasons die pack on page 25.

I have also used the Merry Christmas dies and the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (both now in the Annual Catalogue). The die cut pieces are cut from Silver glimmer paper and I have used some contrasting DSP in the Night Before Christmas paper pack to balance the card. I also added a Mossy Meadow bow, using the linen thread in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack .

This was a pretty quick card to make, and I really like how it turned out. I will be using this die set lots more. I'm really beginning to warm to the retro patterns and colours in the Night Before Christmas DSP.

For my card, I have used the Detailed Bands dies again (this time the larger of the decorative filligree liks pieces, and one of the label stamps). You need this gorgeous die set in your creative stash.

I have combined the Purple Posy with some of the Purple Posy linen ribbon, Night of Navy cardstock, and two lots of Designer Series Paper. The Purple Post script paper is from the 2019-20 InColour 6x6" paper stack.  The gorgeous Monet inspired floral paper, is called Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Stamp Set and coordinating Tea Time Dies

Hello stamping friends.

These cards are from a couple of months ago, but I just realised I hadn't blogged them. They are some of the favourite cards I made this year and my Mother and Mother in Law loved them for their Mothers Day cards. They feature the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time dies (see the product links at the end of the post).

Stampin Up Tea Together stamp set with Country Lane Embossing Folder from the 2019 Annual Catalogue. Mothers Day card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

They both feature the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. I brayered Sahara Sand ink onto the debossed side of the folder, before I added the Shimmery White die cut cardstock and embossed. This gives you the effect shown - I was going for an antique vase effect.

I then die stamped and die cut the flowers before I watercoloured them with Blushing Bride, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive ink.

The Country Floral 3D folder is currently with our new die manufacturer but will be back in stock really soon. Just send me an email if you would like me to let you know when it's back in stock.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Masculine Birthday Card

Hey Stampers. Today I have a masculine birthday card for you, using the Geared Up Garage stamp set and  coordinating Garage Gears dies, which carried over into the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. This one is a great card for all the car enthusiasts in your life as well.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Masculine card 2019 Annual Catalogue. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

My colour combination is Night of Navy, Call Me Clover and Smoky Slate. I have also used some Champagne Foil Sheets which I have randomly stamped with some Jet Black Stazon to make it 'dirty' a bit.

Stampin Up 2019 Color / Colour combination using Night of Navy, Call Me Clover, Smoky Slate. Click through for a card using this combination.

Given most of the elements were in the centre of the card, I did some background random stamping on the base card.
