Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Dear Crafters,AWHT Logo-001

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 4th January 2016. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

You have come to my blog from the very talented, Ros Davidson.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my first project today I am using the Delicate Ornament Thinlits dies.

I love the simplicity of this card and how effective a little bit of glitter can add to the design!

I have used Mint Macaron cardstock and dry embossed it with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The bauble is die cut and the decorative layer is also die cut in Transfer Adhesive Sheet, then Gold Stampin’ Glitter added. It adds such a beautiful shine to the bauble.

My second card is a style I don’t usually use for Christmas, but I had this little guy in the Christmas Cuties stamp set, and hadn’t inked him up yet. He had to be in a snow scene seeing as he is all rugged up in his scarf, mittens and beanie.

First I embossed the whisper white cardstock with the Woodlands TIEF, before sponging with Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, Tempting Turquoise and Marina Mist inkpads. I just kept sponging the different colours until I was happy with it.

Then I added the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to the bottom to create the snow and added the ‘merry’ sentiment from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits dies. The white satin ribbon was tied in a knot and added to the glimmer paper before gluing to the base card. The little guy is coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers and fussy cut before adding to the card with dimensionals.

I am really happy with how this card turned out!

Embellished Ornament

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using some more of the brand new goodies from the Holiday Catalogue that went live yesterday!!!! Be sure to check it out and create your own wish list. I wonder if you can make it longer than mine?!!!! lol

I have to say, this Bundle was the number one item on my wish list. I just love ornaments as they really mean Christmas to me.

I used the brand new Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits which can be purchased as a Bundle saving you 15%.

My colour combination is Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Rose Red & Very Vanilla along with some Gold!

I inked the ornament with Rose Red and then added some Cherry Cobbler just around the edges for some added colour before stamping on Very Vanilla card stock. Then used the Delicate Ornament Thinlits to cut it out.

The background is created by stamping the Holly multiple times and the sentiment before running it through the Big Shot in the Softly Falling TIEF.

I coloured some Basic Pearls with a Metallic Gold Sharpie Pen and added 3 to the centres of the flowers on the ornament.

You will also notice some Gold Cording Trim added to the top of the ornament. This is stunning and also new in this catalogue.
