Heart of Christmas - Week 25


              Welcome back for another week of Heart of Christmas inspiration.
              Today's card uses one of the Christmas sets from the Annual Catalogue, called Star of Light and the matching thinlits called Starlight thinlits.
I made the background effect by sponging and masking. I will supply a tutorial once I have used this card in my Christmas Party class.
The star has been cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

To see what the rest of the team has for you head to the blog of our team leader Claire Daly, as she has a full list of participants. 
Happy stampin,

Heart of Christmas - Week 24


I have something a little different for you today. I have made a couple of different bottle tags that are perfect if you are gifting bottles for Christmas.
The first tag uses the Half Full stamp set, one of the beautiful gold foil snowflakes and a strip of Be Merry DSP. 
The second tag uses the reindeer from Santa's Sleigh, gold embossed on Crumb Cake. The foil snowflake has been sponged on the reverse side with Real Red. A strip of Year of Cheer DSP, the checks one is behind the snowflake. The greeting from Labels of Love finishes this tag.




For more inspiration head to Claire Daly's blog for a list of the other participants.

Less than 7 weeks til Christmas, I hope you're getting organised.

Happy stampin,
Rachel

Stampin Blends are HERE!



Stampin' Up! have released their new alcohol based markers. As a demonstrator I've had a chance to play with them already, and they are awesome! They blend beautifully, and the colours available are amazing. Hopefully we may even get more colours in the range.
Here are some of the projects I've made.






The stamp set used here is called Color Me Happy and was released with the Blends.

Heart of Christmas - week 23


Only 8 Wednesdays until Christmas! The Art With Heart Team is back with another week of Christmas inspiration to get you in the mood.

This week's card features the stamp set Half Full, which was co designed by one of Stampin Up's USA demonstrators Linda Bauwin, who has reached $1,000,000 in sales!

The wine glass image was stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with an Aquapainter. I fussy cut the glass and holly sprig and mounted them on Dimensionals for extra dimension.
I mounted the image on a piece of my favourite DSP, Wood Textures and embossed the greeting in White embossing powder.

And, of course the inside of the card finishes the greeting.


To see what the rest of the team have to show you, head to team leader, Claire Daly's blog for a list of today's participants.

Happy Stampin,
Rachel

Heart of Christmas - Week 21

This stamp set, Cheery Chirps was a late purchase, but I just couldn't resist it any longer.
I embossed the largest bird in Gold Embossing powder on Crumb Cake. The image was then coloured using an Aquapainter and the inks. Colours below in supplies.


The tiny heart on the ribbons is from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. It was embossed in Gold on DSP from the Wood Textures DSP Stack. The greeting is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.


I hope you enjoyed my cheery Christmas card  ;)
