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.

This week's card is all about copper! Our new Brightly Gleaming Suite in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (starting September 4th - have you got your copy?) has a beautiful copper foil theme, which will add real WOW to your Christmas projects.

This suite contains a stamp set and a punch pack duo for 2 sizes of ornaments. In addition to the copper foil accented Designer Series Paper, there are also some gorgeous embellishments in this suite. A ribbon with copper foil writing, some foil elements and the cute copper Star Designer Elements I have used on this card. This catalogue also introduces the Delicata metallic ink pads to our range.  These ink pads give a fabulous lustre stamped finish. They take a little longer to dry (10 minutes air dry and you are done) and it's recommended not to heat dry as it can reduce the lustre. I have used Celestial Copper Delicata ink pad for my greeting (which is from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set in this suite). It's very hard to capture the gorgeous lustre in a photo.

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

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.
