Heart of Christmas Inspiration, Week 8

Heart of Christmas Stampin Up Art with Heart Team Christmas Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Week 8 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!

My project today uses the new At Home with You stamp set and the coordinating At Home Framelits (purchased together as a bundle, you save an extra 10%)!

The Brick Wall Textured impressions embossing folder was used to create the background with Crumb Cake card and I sponged the edges and across the grout lines with a sponge dauber and coordinating ink.

Check out the red door? Yes, it actually opens! This is super cool and there is a die in the set that actually creates this. I love the wreath and the holly above the door; it really gives that Christmas feel. I can almost imagine a warm fire glowing inside the door!

The red glimmer paper was punched with the 1/8th Handheld Circle punch and adhered to the little trees with Tombo multipurpose glue. I think these baubles look so pretty in the glimmer! I love the door mat too, which I stamped Merry Christmas in Versamark ink and gold embossed it.

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!
