Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 22 – Just Jade
Tonight’s card is a real mish mash of products – In Good Taste DSP and Peony Garden DSP, which are both on sale in October, then I have the Free as a Bird Stamp Set and the Home Together dies from the Christmas range!
When I saw this little house die, it reminded me of a bird feeder on a pole in the garden and so I paired it with the Free a a bird stamp. This image is coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers.
I just love the dark wood of the In Good Taste DSP in the background and for the bird feeder. I initially had just the Jade embossed layer but added the piece from the Peony Garden DSP as well for some contrast. This is a real nature’s dream of a card!

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?

Here I am back with another SITR card with a Christmas theme – the Coming Home stamp set and coordinating Trimming the Town Designer Paper is just beautiful. This Designer Paper pack is on sale for the month of October saving you 15%, so make sure you add it to your next order!
Using the Stamparatus, and a template I created myself, I placed the 4″ x 4″ piece of white card on top of the template. Starting with the house image, stamp it once, rotate the card 90o, stamp again and repeat the process. The I placed the tree and the stars in position and repeated the process.
Once all the stamping is done, I then coloured the images with Stampin’ Blends Markers.
The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Greetingsstamp set and cut out with the 1½” circle punch and layered onto a Misty Moonlight die cut from the Tasteful Labelsdies.
Have you tried this technique of Stamping in the Round?!!
