Christmas

Perfect Angel

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a simple card with this gorgeous angel from the stamp set, Christmas Cuties.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties Angel

I used the brand new Black Archival ink to stamp the image on whisper white cardstock and fussy cut her out. Then I coloured her with Stampin’ Write Markers.

I layered the DSP on the Mint Macaron card base, and added a silver doilie. Then the silver banner was added, before the white banner with the scallop tag topper punch at the top.

Don’t you just love how that doilie shines in the light? Cute hey!

Dear Crafters,AWHT Logo-001

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 4th January 2016. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

You have come to my blog from the very talented, Ros Davidson.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my first project today I am using the Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies.

I love the simplicity of this card and how effective a little bit of glitter can add to the design!

Embellished Ornaments #stampinup

I have used Mint Macaron cardstock and dry embossed it with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The bauble is die cut and the decorative layer is also die cut in Transfer Adhesive Sheet, then Gold Stampin’ Glitter added. It adds such a beautiful shine to the bauble.

My second card is a style I don’t usually use for Christmas, but I had this little guy in the Christmas Cuties stamp set, and hadn’t inked him up yet. He had to be in a snow scene seeing as he is all rugged up in his scarf, mittens and beanie.

First I embossed the whisper white cardstock with the Woodlands TIEF, before sponging with Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, Tempting Turquoise and Marina Mist inkpads. I just kept sponging the different colours until I was happy with it.

Then I added the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to the bottom to create the snow and added the ‘merry’ sentiment from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits dies. The white satin ribbon was tied in a knot and added to the glimmer paper before gluing to the base card. The little guy is coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and fussy cut before adding to the card with dimensionals.

I am really happy with how this card turned out!

Elf time

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using that cute little elf from the stamp set, Christmas Cuties. This is one of my favourites in the new Holiday Catalogue and you will see plenty more in the months ahead using this stamp set!!!

My base is Mossy Meadow card stock with a layer of Real Red card stock.

The Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack is so cute with it’s polka dot pattern. The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots are adhesive backed, which make them super quick to add.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad onto Whisper White card stock and coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to die cut the image and another, one size larger to frame it. The amazing Triple Banner punch was used once again with the gold foil card layered behind the framelits. To finish off, I added some Gold Dazzling Details to the 4 bells and left to dry. Cute hey?!!!!

Did you notice I don’t have a sentiment? I actually didn’t think I needed one. This jolly little fellow screams Christmas to me!!!!

Christmas Cutie

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using some more of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue!! Be sure to get a copy or view it online now!!! You won’t be disappointed!

The Season of Cheer Designer Washi Tape is so quick and easy to use and helps to create cards in no time. The Home for Christmas Enamel Dots are adhesive backed, which make them super quick to add.

The image is stamped with the new black archival ink pad which is perfect for use with watercolouring techniques.

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I used the brand new Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set and the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies to create the sentiment. The die was glued on with the new Fine Tip Glue Pen, which is super amazing for adding small embellishments like these!

Christmas Cuties #stampinup

I coloured the image with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a Sneak Peek card using some of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue that goes live tomorrow!!!! Be sure to check back in the morning to view the catalogue online and write up your Christmas Wish List. There is sure to be plenty of products that you are going to love!

Anyway, here is my first card to share with you.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties

This stamp set is called Christmas Cuties, and this little angel was the very first one from the set that I had to ink up!

I used the brand new Black Archival ink which is also new in this catalogue. It can be used to stamp and then water colour the image and it doesn’t bleed. Wahoo, it’s amazingly awesome!

The next product is the Designer Series Paper stack that I have used for the banners. This pack is called Merry Moments DSPS.

I layered the DSP banners (made using the Triple Banner Punch) and then embossed the whole front of the card using the Elegant Dots TIEF before adding the glitter banner.

#stampinup Christmas Cuties

The Angel was die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits and the next largest framelit for the Cherry Cobbler layer.

I coloured the image using the Aqua Painter and ink pads, before adding some Dazzling Diamonds to her wings and some Gold Metallic Thread behind.
