The Heart of Christmas, Week 7

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 7 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today is a Fancy Fold card (instructions below) using the Star of Light, Cookie-Cutter Christmas & Tabs for Everything stamp sets and the brand new Embossing Paste!

Wow, this embossing paste is fabulous! I loved playing with it, but just a warning, you need to work fairly fast and ensure you clean up straight away before it dries hard onto your masks. The design was completely dry within a few minutes!

Here I have mixed in a tiny drop of reinker to colour the paste to coordinate with my colour scheme.

The Santa was stamped in Black ink and coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Here is the side view so you can see how it folds flat to fit into a standard C6 envelope for posting!

You can find the instructions for how to create this fancy fold card from my recent post, Tranquil Tulips.

Fancy Fold card with Lots of Labels

Hello Crafters,

Today I am featuring the Lots of Labels framelits to create this Fancy Fold card inspired by Dawn Griffith. I love to try different fancy folds and this one we did in my class on Saturday and the ladies loved it, although at first took fright wondering if it was going to be difficult to create!

I’m also using my favourite Designer Series paper, Delightful Daisy. #cutitnothoardit

I added a piece of ribbon to the left of the label die, which is an addition to the original creator. I just thought it helped show that is where to pull to open this style of card.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous & Petal Garden

Dear Crafters,

This week my team received their shares that we organised, including Designer Series Papers and some ribbons from the new Annual catalogue, and boy, they are just stunning in real life! Here is mine 😉

2017-2018-stampin-up-annual-catalogue-dsps-and-ribbons.jpg

So, today I have a very simple, but pretty card using loads of new Annual catalogue product, including the Petal Garden DSP, Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, Pretty Label Punch and the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

I just adore this paper! I love every pattern in the pack and that is rare for me, but they are just stunning. I can’t wait to create some more projects with these papers. Here they are:

Petal Garden DSP

Oh and that shimmer ribbon is divine and adds a touch of softness. You know, I would never have put Pool Party and Old Olive together as a colour combination, but somehow, it just works!
