The Heart of Christmas Inspiration with Christmas Pines

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 25 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

Sometimes we get so crazy with the Holiday catalogue, that we forget about the Christmas products in the Annual catalogue, so today, my project uses the Christmas Pines stamp set and the coordinating Pretty Pines thinlits with the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper!

All those beautiful pine needles layered together with the red glimmer berries just scream Christmas to me! I can almost smell the scent of pine lol

Orchids in Burst

Hello Friends,

It’s less than a week until my sisters birthday, and I know she loves orchids as she has been successfully growing them for many years. When I saw the Climbing Orchid Bundle on page 21 of the Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to purchase it! By purchasing the stamp set and framelits together, you save an extra 10%.

I’m not sure if I will give this card to her or make some more, but this is my first play and it certainly won’t be my last

I love the softness of the colouring on these flowers. I used a sponge dauber to lightly colour the petals with Powder Pink, then Berry Burst ink before applying some Wink of Stella. The stem is die cut using the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits!

The top photo is a little dark and the one below, is a little bright, but I was trying to show you the Wink of Stella glimmer on the flowers!

Check out that embossing on the Powder Pink background, isn’t it gorgeous?!! This is the new Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves.

I wasn’t sure about adding a sentiment to the front of the card, so I decorated the inside and added the “enjoy today” sentiment with another small orchid!

Year of Cheer Suite with Large Letters

Hello Friends,

My project today has no stamping, can you believe that?!!! When you see it, you will see why!

I am using the Large Letters Framelits dies, and the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper & Washi Tape. #cutitnothoardit

With this DSP, you don’t need to do a lot, as it is simply stunning with its metallic patterns. It is my niece’s birthdays coming up next month, so I was needing to make some cards for their special day. Here is one I was going to make using the Eclipse technique, but I loved how the letters stood out so much with some black cardstock behind the DSP, I didn’t want to put the letters back on top!

Just check out that metallic shine!!!! And the copper trim is just the perfect match and finishing touch with the bow.

The inside of the card is finished with some strips of Washi Tape.

Coffee break anyone?

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits dies, and the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit

Handmade Card using Stampin Ups Coffee Cafe by Craft with Kate Independent Demonstrator Australia 2017

I love this coordinating Designer paper and the new Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape, which you can see two thin strips of the copper across either side of the heart paper. The Garden Trellis embossing folder was used on the coffee cup wrap which adds some lovely texture. The lid of the cup is some retired paper from a few years ago, but it was a little off cut that worked perfectly for this project!

The Copper Trim ties in nicely with the washi tape too!

How cool is it that the images on the Designer Series Paper can also be die cut with the coordinating dies!!! I love this new feature of Stampin’ Up!

30th birthday card for an AFL Richmond Tigers fan!

Hello Friends,

Today I share a card that was a customer request for a 30th birthday, but the brief was to have it in the Richmond Tigers colours of the AFL team.

I started with a black card and added a strip of Daffodil Delight card diagonally across the card front. I did have to google the image and print it for the logo!

The Gold glimmer was used for the sentiments and die cut using the Happy Birthday thinlits die and the retired Little Numbers dies.

on the inside I placed another piece of Daffodil Delight card with a strip of black across the bottom.

Heart of Christmas, Week 10; Carols of Christmas and so much more!

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 10 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses many different stamp set and bundles; Sheet Music stamp, Carols of Christmas & At Home With You bundles, Paint Play stamp set, and other new products from the Annual Catalogue!

The Sheet Music is stamped in Versamark ink, gold embossed and heat set, as is the sentiment.

The mantle of the fireplace was created using the Card Front Thinlits Builder dies that is part of the bundle with the Carols of Christmas stamp set which will be available in the upcoming Holiday catalogue! The baubles are also from this bundle.

The fire was stamped using the Paint Play stamp set. I’m not too sure how well it worked, but I think you get the picture, lol. Those little Boxwood Wreath embellishments are super cute and I just had to add one to the centre of the fireplace. I also added some red glimmer berries and a copper trim bow!

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.

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

My project today uses the brand new Carols of Christmas stamp set and the coordinating Card Front Builder Thinlits (purchased together as a bundle, you save an extra 10%). These will be available in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue released in September but if you join my team, you can get them now. Ask me how!

So here is my card for this week using this stamp set.

Heart of Christmas Week 9 using Stampin Ups Carols of Christmas by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia AWHT Handmade card 3D DIY.JPG

I have used Tranquil Tide and Silver as my colour combination for this card.

Those little deer are stamped in Basic Grey on Whisper White, as I originally die cut them in the silver foil, but it was just too much silver!

The sentiment is embossed in Silver and that ribbon is new in the Annual catalogue too. Isn’t it pretty?

The sentiment inside the card is from the Star of Light stamp set and few more die cuts at the bottom. The green piece was on off cut from another project where I used the Lots of Labels Framelits (a full product list is below).

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.
