HOC Week 4 – Sneak Peek of Christmas Season

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I am using some of the products from the Painted Christmas Suite.

The Christmas Season Bundle will no doubt be a popular bundle this year. With its holly, berries and pinecones, it suits all crafters worldwide. Underneath the Designer Paper on this card, I am using the pre-printed Gingerbread & Peppermint Memories & More Cards and Envelopes again for a quick and easy start to this card.

The Painted Christmas 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper is cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies for the bottom layer. The holly are stamped in Garden Green ink, the leaves are Pear Pizzazz ink and the berries are Real Red ink. The other leaves are stamped in Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool, then Gilded Leafing added and gently rubbed with a sponge dauber to remove the excess. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous touch of elegance?!!

Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots were added to finish it off. The sentiment for this card is from the new Peaceful Deer stamp set.

Tonight I am sharing some of the products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite. These Memories and More Cards & Envelopes make cardmaking easy. Along with the new Gingerbread & Peppermint 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper, you can get some Christmas cards done in no time at all!

These cards are pre-printed with the brown scallop border and splatters!

I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut the DSP layer. I did have to run one end through a second time with the die to remove one scalloped end so it fit perfectly inside the pre-printed scallop rectangle. Then I used my Paper Snips to fussy cut the images from the patterned Papers and added them with dimensionals to the card. The sentiments and the images stamped on the envelopes are from the new Sweets & Treats stamp set.

I decorated the inside with another fussy cut image from the papers and another sentiment in the coordiating colour; Old Olive.
