The Heart of Christmas; Handmade Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team, Week 4

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Dear Crafters,

Welcome to Week 4 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My card today uses the Foxy Friends & Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with the Wood Textures DSP!

I just love this little reindeer stamped in Crumb Cake and Glimmer Red nose! The Fox Builder Punch was used to punch out his little head to pop up on dimensionals.

The Wood Textures DSP is so amazing and it can be used for nearly any style card, including Christmas! Who would have thought?!!!

Those snowflakes from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits are super cute and add the perfect embellishments to this card, along with the sentiment using the Classic Label Punch.

I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.

Foxy, Peekaboo Peach

Dear Crafters,

Today I have challenged myself to make a card using the new In Color, Peekaboo Peach. Now I have to tell you, it was my least favourite of the 2016-2018 in colors, but after completing this card, I think differently of it, lol. It just works so well for the colour of the fox!

I am so happy that this stamp set is carrying over into the new annual catalogue 🙂

I haven’t added a sentiment to this card, because I want to add a “number” when the time comes, to give it to someone with their birthday year!!!!

Just Add “S”

Dear Crafters,

It has been quite a few months since I have entered any challenges, but today I enter the Just Add Ink challenge, “Just Add S” to your project (#318).

So I have chosen to add a Sunburst!

I love making this style of card, not only does it showcase so many of the wonderful Stampin’ Up! papers, but it can also use up some smaller scraps left over from previous projects.

I also adore this new Baby Bear stamp set. Isn’t it just adorable? I have stamped it with Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, as it is a two-step stamp, although there are 3 parts to it, hence the 3 colours!

I also wanted to show you some cards with the new Affectionately Yours DSP using the same Sunburst technique. They are so bright and cheery. This time the little cat is created using the Foxy Friends bundle (purchase both items together to save $$).

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Happy 7th Birthday Nicola!

Dear Crafters,

Today I have another project using the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle and the Large Number Framelits. Sorry for the reflection, it has been quite gloomy here in Melbourne and very difficult to photograph!

This card was made for a gorgeous little girls 7th birthday party that we attended on Saturday.

Foxy Friends, Kitty Cat, 7th Birthday, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade

I started by applying some of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper to the background of the card and then a grass was added. I cut a strip of cucumber crush card and used the fringe scissors to create this.

I stamped the cat & punched the pieces out with the Fox builder punch. The stump and the mushrooms were stamped and fussy cut.

Can you see the Stampin’ Write Marker lines on the Banner and the 7? How did I draw that line so evenly around them, you ask? Well, when I die cut the images, before I took them out of the die, I traced that line around the inside of the die and did small dots, then I removed the card from the metal dies. Clever hey?!!!!!

I had great fun creating this card for Nicola’s 7th Birthday party on Saturday!

Foxy Friends Shadow Box

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a Shadow Box with the brand new Foxy Friends Bundle. I had so much fun playing with this bundle that I wanted to incorporate as many of the little animals in one project, but they wouldn’t fit on a card so I made a shadow box to display!

Sorry for the reflection, it is quite difficult to photograph without it and it didn’t look the same not in the frame!

Shadow Box, Foxy Friends, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade, 2016

I started with a whisper white background and cut it to size to fit into the 8″ x 8″ frame.

I stamped all the animals, punched them out with the Fox builder punch and some I had to fussy cut. I created an extra head for each one. Once I glued them together, I added the second head piece with a dimensional for that true 3D effect.

Here are each of the animals closer up!

Check out this little kitty cat with the bell tied around its neck, super cute!
