Heart of Christmas - Week 7

Here is another dose of Christmas spirit from the Art with Heart Team.  There is no stamping on this card. The J and the Y have been cut using the Large Letter Dies from Wood Texture DSP. 
 The O is a Boxwood Wreath, with little circles from the 1/8" handheld punch that have been covered in glue from the Fine Tip Glue to make them glossy.
The tiny bow is made from the Gold 1/8" ribbon and the paper strip down each side is from the Be Merry DSP. The card base is Very Vanilla Thick cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed my Christmas sample. For more inspiration head over to Claire Daly's for a full list of the team members participating. 

Happy Stampin,

Heart of Christmas - Week 7


It's Wednesday and I'm back with the Art with Heart Team to share more Christmas inspiration with you.

Today's cards use the brand new, only released to demonstrators and new recruits(see details below) set called Carols of Christmas.



For this card I started with Whisper White then sponged the top 2 thirds with Night of Navy. I used the star stamp in some bleach to get the sky effect. The greeting is white embossed on Vellum and the n attached with Tombo glue. The trees are die cut from Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper using the matching dies called Card Front Builder thinlits.



On this card the border is die cut using the Card Front Builder thinlits and Very Vanilla cardstock. The greeting is stamped on Very Vanilla and cut using the Stitched Shapes thinlits. The small poinsettias  are stamped and cut with the same set. The finishing touch is cutting a Boxwood Wreath in half using wire cutters and attaching the halves with glue dots to the card front. When mounted on Garden Green card base the border stands out.

Here are the details for this months special.
Contact me for more information.

Happy Stampin,

Heart of Christmas - Week 6


It's Wednesday again and I'm back with more Christmas inspiration from the Art With Heart Team.
Did you know there are only 22 Wednesdays left until Christmas? Scary or exciting?

Anyway, back to today's card. I've used a non Christmas set this week for my card.
 I cut the branch from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. This greeting is from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set. The Whisper White background is embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. 


For the baubles, I stamped the two snowflakes from the Colourful Seasons stamp set onto Berry Burst in Versamark, then embossed with gold embossing powder. Using three different circle punches, I punched out the baubles, the sponged around the edges in Berry Burst to give them some depth.


The baubles are hung with Linen Tread and finished with bows from 1/8" Gold ribbon.

Heart of Christmas, week 5


More Christmas cheer from the Art with Heart Team for you today.


This card was inspired by one shown by Claire Daly a couple of weeks ago. It uses the sleigh from the Santa's Sleigh thinlits, with the top layer in Gold Foil and the base layer cut from the Wood Textures DSP. The background stamping uses the large tree from Lovely as a Tree in Tranquil Tide ink. 

           
To get a lovely shimmer in the background I painted the tree Stamp with the Wink of Stella pen and then stamped. I repeated this a couple of times. 
The little holy sprig was stamped with the Holly Berry Happiness set and punch out with the Holly punch. I covered the berries with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and allowed it to dry before I assembled the card.
The Greeting is from the Christmas Pines stamp set and is embossed in gold. I've added a little more Cherry Cobbler with some of the the Double Stitched Ribbon. A couple of small banner ends from Gold Glimmer paper finishes the from of the card.

A complete list of the team members with Christmas cheer can be found on  Claire Daly's blog.

Less than six months till Christmas, time to get started.
Happy Stampin,
