Welcome to Week 12 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!
My project today uses the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set, a great one for the Aussie summer at Christmas time. I love how Stampin’ Up! have thought about creating a set for us in the South Pacific, and this is just perfect!
I’m not sure that the palm trees are so Australian, but they sure do remind me of our holiday last year in Hawaii, so I’m loving them!
These little beach boxes were stamped closely together with the Stamp-a-ma-jig (yes, I’m not that good at lining up the stamps, hehe)! Then I cut them out with paper snips, thank goodness for lots of straight lines, and coloured them with watercolour pencils and AquaPainter. The palm trees were coloured the same way, however the lights were coloured with the Brights Collection Markers and a small dot of the Fine Tip Glue pen added for the shine!
The inside of the card says it all to me for our Christmas at summer time. The beach boxes were added last with dimensionals to pop them up off the sand (not sure if you can see the sand which was a little yellow watercolour wash).
The full product list is provided at the end of the post (except for the stamp set, as it is not available for sale until 1st September, unless you are a demonstrator, or if you join my team today!)
I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.
