The Heart of Christmas, Week 6

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 6 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team.

My card today is 5-3/4″ square card using the Jar of Love & Christmas Pines stamp sets and the Everyday Jars Framelits.

Can you believe that I have never inked up the Jar of Love stamp set until now?! True! But… having made this card, I am bound to make many more projects with this amazing stamp set.

The photos don’t do this card justice in showing all the glitter and gold edging, but I hope you can see that I used the Versamark ink pad, and rubbed it along the edges of the cardstock, dipped them in gold embossing powder and heat set it. It’s another way of creating a layered effect without the extra thickness of cardstock!

The flowers were stamped with the Cherry Cobbler ink, however the solid background colour was stamped off first to give that toned look. The greetings are from the Christmas Pines stamp set.

and here is the inside of the card!

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.

Beautiful Bouquet in Pinks

Dear Crafters,

Wow, can you believe it is the end of June and the end of the financial year? It feels like we only just did our tax returns 😉

Today I am featuring the Beautiful Bouquet bundle, one of my favourite bundles in the new Annual Catalogue. By purchasing this stamp set and coordinating framelits together as a bundle, you can save 10%.

Check out the new Dynamic Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Isn’t it stunning! What do you think?

The Powder Pink ribbon is so pretty and I have matched it with the flowers; Berry Burst and Powder Pink. I just love these tones combined with Tranquil Tide.

This is my own design and I still haven’t seen a lot of projects with this bundle, so it’s been fun creating with it. What do you think of my card?

The Heart of Christmas; Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team, Week 5

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 5 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight Thinlits with the Shaving Cream Technique!

Heart of Christmas Card with Shaving Cream Technique using Star of Light & Starlight Thinlits by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia

This is a super messy technique, but I love how different every card is when you wipe off the shaving cream! Here I have used Sweet Sugarplum reinker in the cream, with the Shimmery White cardstock for a little extra sparkle! 🙂

When it was dry, I then stamped the star background and the sentiment in the Sweet Sugarplum ink.

The gold glimmer paper was die cut and added with our new mini dimensionals, and boy are they mini, not so good for these numb hands to handle!!!! I also added some of the Gold Metallic thread behind.

Beautiful Bouquet Birthday Wishes

Dear Crafters,

Today I am featuring one of the new Bundles in the annual catalogue, Beautiful Bouquet. By purchasing this stamp set and coordinating framelits together as a bundle, you can save 10%.

The sentiment is from the new Tabs for Everything stamp set and cut using the Classic Label Punch.

Although the Designer Paper is suited to the Delightful Daisy Suite, I think it still coordinates quite well with any of the other floral suites! What do you think?

Unfortunately, these doilies have retired, but I still love them 😉

This is my own design and I haven’t seen too much done with this bundle as yet, so I wanted to have a play and get creative. How do you think I have gone with this one?

Tonight the Art with Heart Team girls are showing you their favourite bundles from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. Bundles make creating a breeze, because of the perfect coordination. It’s a bonus that you get 10% off by bundling the products together too. There are 24 bundles in the new catalogue so ask us about them, or for a catalogue today!

AWHT Blog Hop June 2017 - Favourite New Bundle.jpg

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.

Now let’s get started!

Today, it’s all about our favourite new bundle and it’s a no-brainer that I am loving this Beautiful Bouquet Bundle!!! I have a bright and cheery 3D posy card to share with you.

I am just loving these products and will be using them so much over the coming months for sure. Coordinating products are the best, and when you purchase them together as a bundle, you even save an extra 10%! Ask me how!

As you can see, I have used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo as my ink colours as well as Tranquil Tide for the stems and leaves and Whisper White for the background.

Check out this new embossing folder too. It’s the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which gives an even deeper impression and 3D effect.

Look at all the layers and I’m super happy that my framelits arrived so I didn’t have to fussy cut all of these… can you imagine, lol 😉

 

The little sentiment ‘For You’ is cut out using the Classic Label punch and added with the new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Oh and those 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows are adorable, and you get 4 of each of the 5 new In Colors. It’s also super exciting, especially for me who is bow-challenged, as these come already made and with a mini dimensional on the back so you just stick it onto your project!!!

I also thought that this would look pretty cool stamped onto a candle as a coordinating gift!
