Heart of Christmas: Dry Embossed Deer

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I am hosting the 14th Heart of Christmas Blog Hop on behalf of Claire and can you believe it’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas?!

I am using the Big Shot Embossing Mats for tonight’s card to showcase something a little different created with the dies. It was very difficult to photograph the copper foil without getting my reflection in it, so here goes!

The Copper Foil is run through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mats and the Detailed Deer Thinlits die to get this effect. The die doesn’t cut all the way through, but only leaves the impression. How cool is that?!! It opens up the possibilities you can get from your dies. I rounded the two corners using the Envelope Punch Board.

I added some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible ribbon and tied it in a bow. It is so luxurious and soft. I added a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl for the eye of the deer.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Merry Merlot ink and added another strip of the same Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with some of the Joyous Noel Copper Glimmer paper.

I’m pretty much just using Fresh Fig and Whisper White today, although I did add a hint of other colours with the Artisan Pearl Embellishments. Oh and check out the champagne foil background!!! I ran it through the Big Shot in the Subtle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and look what it created… doesn’t it look like Champagne rain? So pretty!

And who can forget to stamp some more images on the inside with the sentiment and another cute reindeer die cut.

Blog Hop: My favourite products in the Holiday catalogue!

September blog hop.jpg

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring products from the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from June Kempster. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

I am using some of my favourite products from this catalogue; Dashing Deer Bundle and the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with its stunning copper foil accents. I also love the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper in 6″ x 6″ and in 3 colours; Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide. I have used 2 of these in my projects today!

My first project is a card using Gray Granite as the base. I would never think to use this colour for Christmas, but in fact, it looks amazing and it is one of the colours in the DSP.

Check out the inside of this card though! I have made a banner at the top with some more of this gorgeous Designer Paper by scoring it in the centre and 1″ either side so it folds in to the card with a metal snowflake embellishment hanging from it with copper metallic thread.

My next project is a small gift box that I cased from Pootles in the UK. This stunning reversible ribbon is featured again wrapped around it, tied in a bow, to hold the box closed. This box measures 3¾” high x 3” wide x 1½” deep. You could fit lots of little Christmas chocolates inside, yummy!

I punched a couple of Tranquil Tide Sprigs from the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and added the copper star embellishment with some copper metallic thread hanging down the front.
