Blog Hop, Christmas, Designer Series Paper, Holiday Catalogue, Stampin' Up!

It’s almost Christmas & no time for fancy cards now!

With less than a week until Christmas today, I needed some quick last minute, easy designs for my Christmas cards.

This one uses a piece of the Joyous Noel DSP placed on the card base with some of the stunning Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon tied around it in a bow to look like a present. Such a simple but effective design.

The Merry Christmas to All stamp set has the erfect sentiments, stamped in Merry Merlot ink and another strip of the DSP is added inside with a strip of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper. Doesn’t it tie the card together perfectly?!

Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring our 29th colour; Merry Merlot. This is also our final colour for 2018, but we will be back to continue on the 8th January 2019 with Mint Macaron!

Today’s card is another quick and easy Christmas card using strips of the Joyous Noel DSP and the coordinating Joyous Noel Glimmer paper in Merry Merlot.

I love this simple design and the sentiment stamped onto strips of Thick Whisper White card and cut up, then added with dimensionals creates that extra touch of class. I also love the hints of copper foil in the DSP and copper edging on the ribbon. The pearls also finished the card off nicely!

Merry Christmas to All

Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.jpg

Tonight, I have more sneak peek products from the new Holiday Catalogue, starting on 5th September. I feature the Merry Christmas to All Bundle, a stamp set and the coordinating Merry Christmas Thinlits dies.

You will notice loads of other new product too; the Festive Farmhouse DSP and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint used on the Christmas die cut… can you see that stunning shimmer?!!! It’s also on the Sprig Punch. I used the AquaPainter to apply the Shimmer Paint directly to the Mossy Meadow cardstock. Such a fun way to add a glittery shine, and while I was punching the sprig, I also punched some from the Champagne Foil to coordinate with the paint.

The Christmas die cut is cut twice, once in Very Vanilla and then in the Mossy Meadow with the Shimmer Paint wash. I slightly offset them when gluing down for the light shadow effect to really make it pop on the dark background.

I coloured the rhinestones with the Darker shade of a Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker. On the inside of the card, I added two small strips of the same Designer Paper down the left side and stamped the words in the centre. Isn’t it a lovely sentiment and the font is divine! I am so impressed with this bundle, it has so many combinations you can choose.
