The Heart of Christmas Inspiration with Christmas Pines

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 25 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

Sometimes we get so crazy with the Holiday catalogue, that we forget about the Christmas products in the Annual catalogue, so today, my project uses the Christmas Pines stamp set and the coordinating Pretty Pines thinlits with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper!

All those beautiful pine needles layered together with the red glimmer berries just scream Christmas to me! I can almost smell the scent of pine lol

Hello Friends,

The background is embossed using the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. A doily is added, then the oval stitched framelit in whisper white. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment, from the At Home with You stamp set (oops, forgot the add that to the product list at the bottom of this post)!

A small piece of the Red Ribbon was attached behind each tree before adding each one to the stitched oval with a dimensional. A rhinestone was added to the top of each tree!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 23: Beachy Little Christmas with Stampin Blends!

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 23 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is using the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set and the brand new Stampin’ Blends Markers which are released today for you to purchase!!!

You can purchase these markers singularly or in a combo pack of two. Or if you are like me and need the entire set, you can also purchase all of them (see below)!!!

Here is my Christmas card using these amazing new blending markers.

My card base is Fresh Fig and I used the Thick Whisper White for the centre panel.

To use the Stampin’ Blend Markers, you need to stamp your images with the Black Memento ink pad, allowing it to dry for a few minutes before you begin colouring. I add the darker shade first and then blend with the lighter shade.

I used some of the Red Ribbon across the top and bottom of the white card and added a bow, just to add a little red to make it extra Christmassy!!!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 22: Merry Little Christmas DSP

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 22 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Don’t you just love the layers and texture of this card? I love how the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured impressions embossing folder gives such a deep impression as the background and then coordinates so well with the black and white leaf layer of dsp!

The Triple banner punch makes creating banners so quick and easy and perfect. I certainly cannot get them so perfect without this punch!

Adding the layer of silver glimmer adds a touch of class, as does the two little black rhinestones!

The Heart of Christmas, Week 21: Beachy Little Christmas

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Beachy Little Christmas stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Beachy Little Christmas card using Stampin Ups Merry Little Christmas DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator, Australia

I began by stamping the shell images on the base card with the coordinating Crumb Cake ink. Next I added a small strip of the Merry Little Christmas Designer series paper and a piece of burlap ribbon.

I stamped the tree image in crumb cake ink and coloured it with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush before die cutting it with the oval and sponging the edge.

The sentiment is also stamped in Crumb Cake ink and sponged the edges before adding it with dimensionals. I think using predominantly crumb cake on this card, resonates with me as being the sand at the beach.

The Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 20: Carols of Christmas

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Carols of Christmas card using Stampin Ups Merry Little Christmas DSP by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia

When I opened the pack of Designer papers and saw this piece (that I’ve used as the back layer with the leaves), it was so “in your face” stark, black and white. I needed to soften it to use and so I got out my sponge brayer and added some Old Olive ink to take away that bright white! Sometimes we get so put off by the contrast of black and white and wonder how we will use it, but if you colour the white areas softly, it can totally change the look!

Adding the layer of gold glimmer and the gold bow adds a touch of class!

The Heart of Christmas, week 19 – Christmas Pines & Painted Harvest

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 19 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the Painted Harvest & Christmas Pines stamp sets to create this Christmas card!

Heart of Christmas - Color Builder - Artichoke, olive, vanilla, cherry cobbler.jpg

Look at me using Always Artichoke, a colour I very rarely use…. in fact, I think it is the 2nd time ever, that it’s been opened and you know what, I actually don’t mind it for a Christmas colour!

I have stamped the sunflower image in Always Artichoke, and twice with Old Olive. The berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. How pretty is that coordinating double stitched ribbon bow?!!! So pretty!

The Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder just finishes this card off perfectly. I just love that added texture.

I love how versatile our stamp sets can be. Who would have thought to use a sunflower image for a Christmas wreath?!!! Not me…. but there are plenty of amazingly creative people out there on Pinterest who inspired me.

The full product list is provided at the end of the post!
