Sweetest Christmas Candy Canes

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Today’s card I’ve gone with the more traditional Christmas colours; Real Red, Garden Green and White with a touch of Gold!

The Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper features heavily in this card. I fussy cut the candy canes from the paper with Paper Snips.  Another piece of the DSP is added across the centre of the Real Red card base.

A Basic White square is die cut (Stylish Shapes dies) and embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. This is glued to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. Some Specialty Gold Trim is added with a glue dot placed in the centre of the square. A 2cm strip of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper is added across the bottom of the DSP before the candy canes are added on dimensionals

To finish off, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto Garden Green card, White Emboss Powder added and melted with the Heal Tool. This was cut using the banner from the Stylish Shapes dies and added with dimensionals. A strip of DSP is added to the inside panel insert.

Scottie Christmas

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Today’s card is a quick and easy Christmas card created with little fuss. The Scottie Dog Punch is so cute in Basic Black card and I thought he would look great on a piece of the Santa Express DSP. The 12″ x 12″ sheet has 6 of these scenes and I layered it onto a piece of Shaded Spruce card. The edge is die cut with the Blossoming Happiness dies.

The dog is popped up on black dimensionals and the bow is punch from some DSP from the same pack as the background papers. Two Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels are add for sparkle.

Spanner Panel card using Stampin Up Tree Lot Dies by Kate Morgan, Australia Heart of Christmas 2022

I have lots of patterned papers on this fancy fold card and I love all the metallic foil highlights on them; Boughs of Holly DSP, Lights Aglow SDSP, Metallic & Shimmer SDSP and the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I’m not sure if you can tell that there is some Vellum behind the windows on the caravan?!

Spanner Panel card using Stampin Up Tree Lot Dies by Kate Morgan, Australia Heart of Christmas 2022 front

When you open the front panel you have this spanner effect. The sentiment and die cut circles (Stylish Shapes dies) are 1 size smaller than the ones of the front of the card; this is so they hide neatly behind the top layer.

Then open the centre panel to reveal the next layer for your message. I have used the Wink of Stella on the Holly leaves and added Pearlized Enamel Effects in red for the berries. Both sentiments (Very Best Occasion stamp set) are stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.

Christmas U Fold Window card

2022 Heart of Christmas Logo

Each Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

Today’s fancy fold card is a ‘U Fold Window’ style card using the Kindest Gnomes Bundle and Storybook Gnomes DSP.

I made this same design of fancy fold card last Friday which had the measurements.

I just love how the dies can cut out the images in the coordinating Designer Paper. The gnome and mushroom are both cut this way – it makes card making super easy so you can concentrate on designing a fancy fold card! The window is cut using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes dies.

Can you see the Pearlized Enamel Effects in White that I have added to the tree branches?! Make sure you add these last so you can sit the card aside to allow these to dry. They don’t take long, but it would be a shame to ruin them. The Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems on either side of the sentiment (stamped in Orchid Oasis ink) add extra interest.

Hippest Hippo U Fold Window card

Today’s fancy fold card is a ‘U Fold Window’ style card using the Sale•a•bration items, Hippest Hippo stamp set (#159921), Hippo dies (#159928) and Silver & Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159941). Each of these items can be earned free with any $90+ product order. Select all 3 items with a $270 product order during Sale•a•bration (now through to 31 August 2022)!

I adore the Lights Aglow Specialty Designer Series Paper and this particular piece reminded me of those beautiful curtains at the theatre! I also added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card at the top opening of the window (Basic Borders dies).

Thick Basic White Card Base: 19.5cm x 10.5cm; score at 2.5cm & 5cm from each end.
Thick Basic White Card Front: 14.5cm x 10.5cm Adhere the DSP before cutting the window (the largest square die from the Stylish Shapes dies).

The Silver & Gold Specialty DSP was cut for the interior with a small piece of the wood grain paper (retired In Good Taste DSP) at the bottom acting as the stage floor for my little ballerina.

U Window Fold card using Stampin Ups Hippest Hippos Saleabration 2022 by Kate Morgan, Australia

Memento Black ink was used to stamp the hippo image and she’s coloured using the Stampin’ Blends Combo Markers; Gray Granite, Melon Mambo, 900/1000 Light Combo.

The hippo is raised with a small strip of window sheet folded into a square and mounted behind. This allows for her to appear in mid-air, and so the card can fold to the right so it folds flat to fit in a standard C6 envelope!

The sentiment is white heat embossed onto a label die cut with one of the Fabulous Frames dies.

Today’s card started with a Thick Basic White card base as well as the top layer.

The only stamping is the dog (Trees for Sale stamp set) and the sentiment (Brightest Glow stamp set) in Gray Granite ink. The clouds are from the Waves dies and the Mountains are cut by hand from Gray Granite card. The snow caps are cut by hand and then one of the Sentiment Silhouettes dies is used to cut the bottoms to look like snow! The caravan is die cut and glued together then added with Dimensionals. The grass is cut from 2022-24 In Color Glimmer paper for a little sparkle.

On the card base, some Balmy Blue card is adhered with Multipurpose glue, then the mountains are adhered so they appear behind the top layer. The top layer is added with Foam Adhesive Strips.

Heart of Christmas begins for 2022!

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

July is a great time to start making those Christmas cards before the year gets away from us, and it’s Christmas before we know it!

When I first saw the JD Mini catalogue, I fell in love with the Storybook Gnomes Suite (#159630) and they were the first items to drop into my shopping cart!

Storybook Gnomes Suite 159630

I love how the images on the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series Paper can be cut out using the Gnomes dies. The trees are from a Saleabration product Tree Lot dies, that can be earned free with a qualifying order). The are cut from the Parakeet Party colour in 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer papers and the 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series paper. The gnomes hat and feet are die cut from the left over paper around the sheet I die cut the gnomes from. His nose is also the Glimmer paper (Tahitian Tide). The beard is Shimmery White cardstock. The Fabulous Frames dies was used to cut the oval in the centre of the DSP. The stamping inside the oval uses Pacific Point ink.

Week 6 – Balmy Blue

Tonight we showcase Balmy Blue, and I have teamed it with Night of Navy and the gorgeous Abstract Beauty Specialty DSP.

I love this easy design using the gorgeous Abstract Beauty patterned papers as a patchwork style background. Using 4 rectangles of DSP measuring 6.9cm x 4.5cm and then cut each one on the diagonal so you have 8 triangles. Lay them out in your desired pattern.

The sentiment is stamped onto Basic White card and die cut using the Stylish Shapes dies. A Navy banner in the next size up was cut to place behind. I felt there was something missing, so I used the Give it a Whirl dies to cut a heart from the new In Color Glimmer card. Don’t you think it makes all the difference?!!!
