My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit
When I opened the pack of Designer papers and saw this piece (that I’ve used as the back layer with the leaves), it was so “in your face” stark, black and white. I needed to soften it to use and so I got out my sponge brayer and added some Old Olive ink to take away that bright white! Sometimes we get so put off by the contrast of black and white and wonder how we will use it, but if you colour the white areas softly, it can totally change the look!
Adding the layer of gold glimmer and the gold bow adds a touch of class!

Welcome to Week 9 of the Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!
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.
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.
