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.

Square Easel Card with Dashing Deer and the rich Joyous Noel papers

Today I share a card that my ladies made in yesterday’s Christmas class!

It’s an Easel card that measures 4⅛” x 4⅛” when closed. I made it this size so that I could get 2 cards from 1 sheet of card stock.

I stamped the reindeer image and the floral image on the front of the card in Tranquil Tide ink as well as the sentiment on the inside. This is how the card looks when laying flat to fit into an envelope.

The Starburst Punch was used the cut some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper behind the deer. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous sparkle?!!

When the card is open and laying flat it looks like this from the front

and this on the inside. You can see the scoreline of the front and how it folds to sit up to display. I placed some Gray Granite card on the inside with a strip of the DSP and some more glimmer paper. The sentiment is stamped and punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and sits on dimensionals so the front of the card forms the Easel!

Heart of Christmas: Simply Elegant

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Today, I am sharing another card focusing heavily on this stunning Joyous Noel Designer paper and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer.

I was inspired by a card created by Amy Koenders and it really caught my eye. I used the same piece of DSP (because it is my favourite!) but I changed up the top section and the card base.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty stamp set and the Classic Label punch to cut it out.

Here’s the inside using another strip of this DSP, Glimmer strip and another glimmer sprig!

This reversible Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon is so soft and stunning and I love it! How pretty does that bow look?!!

Christmas Decoration with Joyous Noel

Here I am again with another creation using my favourite Designer Paper, Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. This time, I have made a Christmas Decoration to hang on the Christmas tree this December.

If you are not into fiddly things, then this may not be the decoration for you, but I had to give one a try as they looked very different to anything else I had seen before. I don’t think I will be making loads of them to put on my tree though 😉

You can watch a YouTube video with all the instructions here!

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.
