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!

The Heart of Christmas; Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team, Week 3

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 3 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Cookie Cutter Christmas & Christmas Pines stamp sets, which have been carried over into the new annual catalogue. I am so happy, as I already had both of these sets and I am excited to be able to continue sharing Christmas projects with you!

I have use Tranquil Tide and Cherry Cobbler and I think these will be my ‘go to’ Christmas colours this year. The teddy bear is stamped in Crumb Cake with Early Espresso features.

This card uses the Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes which make card-making very quick and easy and you can create multiples of these cards in a short period of time. We all like that at Christmas time, right?!! And these packs are such great value at $10.50 for 20 notecards and 20 envelopes!

I decorated the envelope with the bear on the front and some of the pine needle branches on the back seal.

Check out the new Decorative Ribbon Border Punch; it was one of the first things on my wish list!

This time I embossed the pine cone with copper embossing powder. I would have preferred to coordinate it with the glitter strip, but the gold pine cone just didn’t look right!!!

Woodland Sleigh

Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is all about Christmas and the new Santa’s Sleigh Bundle, combining it with the Woodland TIEF.

I love the sleigh in the glimmer card and the reindeer is super cute!

cards-by-kate-santas-sleigh-christmas-pines-woodland-diy-christmas-reindeer-holidaycatalogue2016-stampinup-cardsbykatemorgan

The sentiment was added as a banner but it needed some dimension, so I curled it with the bone folder to create extra interest.

Pineapples

Dear Crafters,

With this slightly warmer weather starting to appear in Melbourne, we are getting back into eating some yummy fruits, including the pineapple!

So today’s card is all about pineapples, but it is created with my favourite Christmas Pines Bundle!

cards-by-kate-christmas-pines-pineapple-stampinup-holidaycatalogue2016-diy-cardsbykatemorgan

My 7 year old saw this stamp set and instead of thinking of pine cones, she suggested I make some pineapples. What a great idea!

Then I happened to be browsing Pinterest (as you do lol) and I came across a card with this idea and I had to make it straight away. It was by a lady called Kim Jolley, from Missouri and you can see her card here.

cards-by-kate-christmas-pines-pineapple-stampinup-holidaycatalogue2016-diy-cardsbykatemorgan

How cool is the background? I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp, inked it up and then spritzed it before stamping!

Pine cones for Christmas

Dear Crafters,

I am officially addicted to the Christmas Pines Bundle! Because today I have another project using this amazing set. I also adore this Designer Series Paper, Presents & Pinecones. You can see two different designs here, but it is actually 1 sheet with each design on either side!!!

and the copper embossing powder is simply stunning, so much better than I was expecting it to be and it works perfectly on these pine cones!

And once again, I have coloured the rhinestones this time, with a red Sharpie pen to create little berries!
