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.

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!


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?

Fancy Tree & Brightly Gleaming Ornament

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop 2019

I am using the Brightly Gleaming DSP from the Holiday catalogue again for tonight’s projects. I have simply punched the smaller ornament 6 times from different papers in this pack and glued them to the card in a tree shape. Even the sentiment was perfect for the trunk. The background is embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and I used the Delicata Copper Metallic ink pad around the edges and placed a copper star element on top of the tree. I also added some of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones for extra sparkle.

My next project also uses the Brightly Gleaming DSP, but this time a Christmas decoration to hang on your Christmas Tree! It is simply made using the 2″ circle punch with 12 circles folded in half and glued together. The Copper Trim coordinates perfectly and is 12″ folded in half with a knot at one end. Place it through the centre before gluing the final circles together. This one looks a little battered as my cat decided she wanted to tap it off my craft table and chase it around the room 😯

A Festive Flurry Christmas

Hello Stampers,

Well talk about the silly season creeping upon us, what a busy week it has been!

Here a few of the Christmas ornaments that I have been busy making for our tree.

I can’t decide what colours I like best, so I did a few different ones.

Festive Flurry

This is Blushing Bride & Smoky Slate

Festive Flurry

Cherry Cobbler & Pear Pizzaz

Festive Flurry Festive Flurry

These 2 are Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay.

I love them all and thinks they look so pretty on the tree!

I have also made one to give to a work colleague. She is a lover of champagne, so I thought this was the loveliest gift idea.

I have also made some double sided ornaments to hang from a beam between our kitchen and lounge.
