Heart of Christmas: Week 4

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight’s Heart of Christmas card is a very simple one cased from Linda Dalke. 

The holly image is stamped twice in Pretty Peacock ink in two corners before adding the centre piece over the top on dimensionals.

The Night of Navy card layer under the Designer Series Paper with the two baubles stamped in copper ink and punched out, also added with dimensionals. I love the knots of ribbon added to each one. The sentiment is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink on Very Vanilla card and added with Tombo Mulitpurpose glue.

Tonight I have a 4″ x 4″ bookmark card using the Brightly Gleaming Suite. 

Bookmark card using Stampin Up Brightly Gleaming suite by Kate Morgan, Australia 2019 Holiday catalogue.jpg

Start with a Mossy Meadow card base 10¾” x 4⅛”.
Score at 4¼” then turn the card 90o and score again at 2¼” and then perforate this line.
Insert the smaller end into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch so the edge lines up with the perforation, punch, then trim off the excess.

To decorate:
1 x DSP to 3⅞” x 3⅞”.
1 x DSP 2” x 4” and punch with the scallop tag topper punch and glue to the bookmark.
1 piece 3” x 3” for the front and 1 piece 4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla card for the inside. Rub the edges of the 3″ x 3″ card with the Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink pad.
Stamp the holly images (Mossy Meadow ink) and fussy cut before adhering to the Very Vanilla square with dimensionals. Punch 2 x small baubles from DSP and 1 x larger one in Copper Foil, then emboss it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Stamp the sentiments in the Celestial Copper ink. On the inside of the card, the string is actually created by running the edge of a metal ruler on the Celestial Copper ink pad and using it as a stamp!
Finish off with a coordinating piece of ribbon. I used a bambi stapler to hold it.

and here’s a coordinating bon bon but slightly smaller than the one I shared in last week’s Christmas Blog Hop (you can see the instructions here). The only difference is that I made this one shorter starting with 8″ x 8½” Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP. All the other instructions are the same!

Christmas Blog Hop with the Art with Heart Team

Art With Heart Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative Christmas projects, many featuring products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue which starts on 4 September.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 Annual catalogue or the new Holiday catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from the talented, Claire Daly. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there 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!

I have made a card and a coordinating Christmas Bon Bon for tonight’s hop using the Brightly Gleaming Suite of products from the new Holiday catalogue.

My Night of Navy card base (29.7cm x 10.5cm) is folded in half. I added a piece of DSP and then a piece of vellum. I stamped the holly in Mossy Meadow ink onto Very Vanilla card twice. I coloured the leaves with the AquaPainter and Mossy Meadow ink. The berries are coloured by putting a bit of the Celestial Copper ink pad onto a clear block and used my Wink of Stella to pick up some of the colour to add to the berries (the photo doesn’t do it justice). The Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements are used for the leaves behind for extra interest.

The sentiment is also stamped with the Celestial Copper ink onto Very Vanilla card and cut out using scissors. It is added with dimensionals. Each of the baubles is created using 6 of the small ornament punched pieces, scored in half and joined together with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. A small copper star element is added at the top of each bauble. I used a Copper Sharpie to hand draw the strings.

This next image is directly from the Holiday catalogue and I loved that we can use this amazing specialty paper and the punch to make Christmas Bon Bons. So of course I had to make one too!

So here is mine to coordinate with my card!

To make my Christmas Bon Bon with the Brightly Gleaming Suite
I used a piece of 12″ x 8½” Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.
Place the 8½” side into the Simply Scored and score at 1¾”, 3½”, 5¼”, 7″.
Gently fold on each scoreline.
Using the smaller of the two ornament punches, push the punch all the way into the DSP, centring it on each scoreline and punch on both sides (Keep these punched pieces to make a card).
Place the 12″ side in the Simply Scored, and carefully score both ends at 1½”.

Gently fold on the scorelines so that the short ends are folded back onto the side you want showing.
Fold the Bon Bon into the tube shape and push it down flat with the shorter end on the inside.
Place a strip of Tear & Tape along the edge, and join them together (you may need to insert the punch again to punch out the 1/2 punched shapes).
Push in the ends and tie some of the ½” Classic Weave Ribbon into a bow, but remember to add your treats before you do!

Heart of Christmas: Week 2

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

Here we go – Week 2 of the Heart of Christmas for 2019!

Brightly Gleaming Suite again – sorry, but I adore this suite and you will be seeing loads of projects with these amazing products. This card is so super simple and easy to make in multiples.

The A5 card base (4-1/8″ x 11-11/16″) is Pretty Peacock with two strips of Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP; 2″ x 5-7/8″ and 3/4″ x 5-7/8″. Glue these to the front starting with the larger one, lining it up, flush on the left side.

Now you can add the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements (two branches) and the bauble. Tie a small piece of copper metallic thread through the top of the bauble and place the ends in the centre of the branches before adding the Star Designer Element to hold it in place. 

Stamp the sentiment (Christmas Gleaming) on Very Vanilla card with the Celestial Delicata Copper ink pad and cut it out with scissors and adhere to the card with dimensionals.

This Designer paper really is the star of the card and you really don’t need to be an avid crafter to create these projects. This is a wonderful card for the Beginner stamper.
