Dear Crafters,

AWHT Blog Hop Holiday Catalogue - August 2017

Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links. You may have come to me from the very talented, Rachel Palmieri.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects today I am using the Musical Season Bundle with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.

My projects are fairly simple, using Black, Silver and White! Not my usual Christmas style, but it is classic and I wanted to try something different to what I always use and this Designer Paper just has to be a focal point. #cutitnothhoardit

Check out that Black Shimmer ribbon too, it is just gorgeous and coordinates so well with my cards tonight.

My second card is stepped up with a some extra die cutting, heat embossing and dry embossing using the new Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The sentiment is silver embossed and heat set on some black card with a piece of Silver Foil behind. The French Horn is also die cut from the Silver Foil.

and the inside of both cards I stamped the same sentiment in Black ink with the Lyre behind stamped in Smoky Slate!

This card uses the same Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper along with the Carols of Christmas stamp set and coordinating dies, Card Front Builder Thinlits. The border frame is die cut using these thinlits.

The trees and the deer on the front are die cut with the Silver Foil. The black ribbon bow adds a touch of softness to the card. Behind the raised sentiment is a layer of silver glimmer. Not sure if you can see that clearly in the picture.

Here is the inside of my card with the tiny deer and the glimmer Christmas tree set to the bottom right hand side.

 

and for my last card today, I have paired these up with the new Mini Ornaments Embellishments, to hang in the centre of this card with the fine silver metallic thread!

I die cut the Lots of Labels framelits in 3 sizes to use to frame the mini ornament embellishment adding dimensionals behind the frames for added layering. The inside of the card I wanted to remain black behind the ornament, however that is not great for writing a greeting, so I cut a square out of the white layer and stamped the sentiment below it.

  1. LOVE these Kate! What a great collection of cards showcasing the one colour combination. They are very elegant. The bauble card is amazing and I love how you have angled the DSP in the top card. Thanks for participating in the Art with Heart August blog hop and coordinating it all for us!
