A Classic Christmas Theme

The Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ Patterned Paper is a beautiful rich combination of colours; Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler & Shaded Spruce. Used as the background diagonal pattern as well as the 3 x punched 2-1/4″ circles, creates some quick Christmas cards to make.

A card base of Shaded Spruce with a layer of Cherry Cobbler with the Whisper White Sprigs, cut from the Curvy dies.

Summer Theme for our final Monthly Creative Showcase 2020

AWHT Creative Showcase

Monthly Creative Showcase: Summer Theme

Tonight’s card is based on what Summer time means to me – hot days, school holidays, lazy days at home and boy, am I looking forward to the end of the school year!!!

This card is a bit of a mix of Melbourne and our holiday to Hanuama Bay, Hawaii, where we snorkelled with turtles!

The bright beach boxes are a true Melbourne icon and I have made mine in Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point and Real Red. The sand is So Saffron card as my base, with the wave patterned paper glued at the bottom and the top section is Shaded Spruce with Coastal Cabana behind for the palm trees. This was cut using the Friendly Silhouette dies.

That little turtle is cut out of the Whale of a Time DSP and the waves are also part of this paper stack. The Whale of a Time Sequins & shells are added with a glue dot.

While in isolation, it has been wonderful to have our travel memories, and to dream of one day going on another fantastic holiday.

Colour Creations Showcase – Misty Moonlight – Origami folding and a simple Triangle Christmas card

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 28 – Misty Moonlight

This is such a gorgeous rich blue and I think my favourite blue tone in the Stampin’ Up! colours. I am naturally drawn to blue, being my favourite colour!

Tonight I have two cards for you – the first being a card that I had a bit of fun learning to fold some of our Flowers for Every Season DSP in Origami. It isn’t perfect, but I will practice some more to get those nice clean, crisp folds.

This floral paper is perfect for this fold and I was happy with the final look. The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I mounted it onto some white card to frame it on the Misty Moonlight woodgrain patterned paper from the In Color DSP Pack. How beautiful are those Beaded Pearl centres?!!  They finish it off nicely.

My next card is a simple Christmas card using the Snowflake Splendor DSP, Stitched Triangle dies and the Christmas Layers dies for the snowflakes.

The Copper Star Designer Elements on top of the trees add a touch of elegance.

Jaded Gold Pines for the Christmas season

The In the Pines Bundle coordinates perfectly with the In Good Taste patterned papers. I also used some of the Just Jade sheets from the 2020-2022 In Color Paper Pack, behind the large tree cutout and also die cut a couple of the smaller trees, as well as a Gold Foil one and Just Jade one.

The layer of Just Jade card is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder before I brushed the edges with the Versamark inkpad. Some Gold emboss powder is added and heat set. This adds the look of an extra layer, without the bulk of extra card. The sentiment is also Gold Embossed and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

Die cut the fancy tree (largest) in the centre top of the woodgrain patterned paper and place some of the Just Jade patterned paper behind it. I selected that stripy patterned piece, as it looks a little like a string of lights or tinsel wrapped around the tree.

The Just Jade Ribbon is tied around the woodgrain layer, and in a bow, before it is adhered to the Just Jade card layer. Then add the smaller trees last.

Some Gold Faceted Gems were added to the tops of the trees.

On the inside, I added some leftover strips of card and patterned paper an another small tree.

I can’t believe I am still finishing off my Christmas cards – I normally have them all done, written messages inside and in the mail by 1 December, eek! Have you mailed your Christmas cards yet?

Partridge in a Pear Wreath

Arrange a Wreath Bundle

My colour combination: Rich Razzleberry – Bermuda Bay – Bumblebee – Whisper White

Using Blending Brushes or a foam sponge roller, add colour directly from the inkpads of each of the feature colours onto a Whisper White strip of cardstock. This will create a beautiful soft background. Before adhering it to the front of your card base, flick some drops of Wink of Stella over it and allow it to dry for a few minutes.

Stamp 4 or 5 pears by inking them up on the Bumblebee inkpad, then take a Sponge dauber to add a little Bermuda Bay ink around the edges to get that two tone colour. Give your stamp a huff of breath to re-activate the ink before stamping onto white card, then cut them out with the coordinating die. Repeat the same process for the bird, starting with Bermuda Bay, then sponge Rich Razzleberry.

Die cut 3 wreaths in each of the colours and glue them together. Add the stamped images with dimenionals, so they pop up a little. Stamp your sentiment and add some Elegant Faceted Gems.

Quick and easy Christmas Pine Tree featuring DSP

Using the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP in the background as well as behind the tree cut out, you can quickly create some elegant Christmas card. The In the Pines bundle and Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set are my must have items for the holiday season.

My colour combo: Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider, White

The Lovely Labels Pick a Punch is used to create the fancy ends of my sentiment. The Just Jade layer is embossed with the Subtle 3D TIEF for a bit of texture. A Star Designer Element is added to the top of the tree. We all need a star or an angel there!

I till felt it was missing something, so I added a Just Jade Gingham bow made using the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.

On the inside, I added some left over strips and used the Banner Triple Punch on the ends.

Colour Creations Showcase – Merry Merlot – Dove of Hope with Blended Background

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 26 – Merry Merlot

The Dove of Hope stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dove dies make gorgeous Christmas cards without too much effort.

Craft with Kate Colour Combination Merry Merlot Just Jade Whisper White

The card base is Merry Merlot, embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D TIEF. The Whisper White layer, I scored the border using the Simply Scored, at 1/8″ intervals. This is another great way to create borders without adding extra bulk to your card.

I used a Decorative Mask (oops, sorry this one is retired) but you can use any mask with Blending Brushes. Once I removed the mask, I found it a bit “in your face”, so I lightly brushed over it again to soften the look… much better! The sentiment is stamped in Merry Merlot before I added the dove.

Some Elegant Faceted Gems were added at the very end for a little bling.

Plaid Tidings with Paper Piecing Bow

Plaid Tidings patterned paper is another of the packs that is on sale this month and tonight I have teamed it up with the reindeer image from the Warm & Toasty stamp set and includes some Paper Piecing!

The bow on this reindeer, I coloured with a Black Stampin’ Write Marker direct to the stamp and stamped it into the centre of this plaid piece of paper. I cut out a small square just around the image with my trimmer (the oval is placed over the top to hide the hole) then neatly cut around the edges of the bow. Using the marker, I ran it around the edges to make the sides black, so when it’s glued to the reindeer, it looks like one piece. The reindeer is coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I added a little Wink of Stella to the antlers, hooves and nose. The oval is popped up on dimensionals.

Don’t forget to add some patterned papers to your October order!

Heart of Christmas: Trimming the Town Card and Shaker Ornament

Heart of Christmas image

Welcome back to our second Heart of Christmas post with the Art with Heart Team. Each month we are sharing Christmas inspiration with you using current Stampin’ Up! products.

Do you have a copy of the new catalogue yet? You can view it online or Email Me to request a copy be mailed to you!

2020 August-December Mini Catalogue

Tonight I have a Christmas card and ornament to share with you. I love this Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and it makes the most gorgeous decorations to hang on your tree this festive season. This paper is part of the 15% off sale on right now!

01-10-20_DSP_SALE

Here is my card predominantly using the DSP with very little stamping; in fact the car and the wreath on the house are the only stamped images.

To go with my card is this Shaker Ornament using the same suite

Using 3 sizes of circle dies, you will need to cut the following pieces;
Largest die: Blue base (pictured with ribbon), the blue ring (top piece), Foam Sheet, DSP
Middle die: Foam sheet & Window Sheet
Smallest die: cut the centre of the top piece & cut the centre of the foam sheet

Glue the ribbon to the base piece (shown above) then glue the DSP circle over the top. I cut out some of the trees and house from another piece of the DSP and glued these on, along with a stamped sentiment.

Glue the window sheet onto the blue ring

Place the foam circle on top of the window sheet.

Add some tiny clear beads to the centre of the ornament and very carefully place the above piece on top.

Then tie a bow and add it to the top to finish it off.

Have I inspired you to make some decorations for your tree this Christmas?
