Heart of Christmas- Week 12



It's Wednesday again, which means more Christmas inspiration from the Art With Heart Team.
Both of the cards I have for today use the brand new Santa Paws set, which is available from the 1st of September in the Holiday Catalogue. If you haven't received a copy of this fabulous catalogue and would like one, drop me a line and I will organised one for you.
 This super cute cat and dog Christmas tree has been stamped in Shimmery White cardstock and coloured with Blender Pens. I find that blender pens are easier to use on such a detailed stamp.
 Of course I had to use one of the other super cute images on the inside, again coloured with the Blender Pens. The DSP in the background and the strip on the inside comes from the Merry Little Christmas pack which is also brand new and available September 1st.
 Here's a close up of the cuteness of this stamp, I just love it.

The second card uses the same tree image, but has been embossed on Very Vanilla, in Gold Embossing Powder to give it a more elegant, sophisticated look. The images was again coloured with Blender Pens. I cased the sample in the catalogue and disassemble my greeting to fit on the card.
 Here's a close up of the embossed image and greeting.
 To see what the rest of the team have for you head to Claire Daly's blog, where you will find a full list of today's participants. I hope you're getting inspired to start your Christmas cards, it will be here before we know it! 

Happy Stampin,
Rachel

Heart of Christmas - Week 11

Today I'm joining in with the Art With Heart Team and their weekly Heart of Christmas inspiration. I have some projects using a new bundle called Christmas Quilt from the up coming Holiday Catalogue to share with you today.

The first card has been stamped in Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist, Blushing Bride and Pool Party, with Garden Green for the outside stitching. This shape was the cut out with the co ordinating die and mounted on Real Red, with a Lemon Lime Twist scalloped square. The greeting is stamped in Real Red. The wooden heart is from some old elements, but I'm waiting for the Hearts and Stars Elements to arrive so that I can replace it with one of those. The twine is Flirty Flamingo striped twine.

The second card uses the same colours but this time with the quilted Christmas tree shapes. The triangles are cut using a die from the bundle and mounted on Dimensionals. The tree bases are stamped in Crumb Cake and the greeting in Real Red. The tiny red stars on each tree are cut from Red Glimmer Paper.



For more Christmas inspiration head over to Claire Daly's blog who is the team leader and who has a full list of who's participating this week.

Unfortunately I can't give you individual links to the new products as they are still only on preorder for demonstrators, but if you have any questions about these projects fell free to contact me.

Happy Stampin,
Rachel

Art With Heart Team Blog Hop - My Favourite Colour Combo


         The Art with Heart Team ladies are selecting their favourite colour combinations to share with you tonight. Choosing the right colour scheme can be essential to your design and with Stampin’ Up!s stunning collection, there are 50 colours to choose from. There’s sure to be some combinations that work really well together and you can take inspiration from.
Now sit back and enjoy some time out of your day to cruise through our blog hop and soak up some colour explosion eye candy!
My favourite colour combination (at the moment, it changes alllll the time) is the colours used in the Petal Garden DSP Stack, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, and Old Olive. There's a little bit of Sweet Sugarplum in there too.
The first card uses the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and thinlits. The beautiful bow has been tied using my new Bow Maker, given to me by my lovely customer Katy, handmade by her husband Noel. The ribbon used is Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon. The remaining cards use the Happiest of Days stamp set and the Petal Garden DSP. The new Garden Trellis embossing folders gives texture to the background of the second card. The ribbon on the same card is Fresh Fig 1/8 sheer ribbon. 
The images have all been coloured using the inks and a Blender Pen. My favourite thinlits, the Stitched Shapes have cut the oval and the circle, with the Lots of Labels thinlits used on the third card.
I hope you like my projects, next on the Blog Hop is Kimberly, with her beautiful projects.

Heart of Christmas - Week 9

Only 22 Wednesdays until Christmas, just as well the Art With Heart Team is back with more Christmas goodies.

I have returned to the Merry Mistletoe set this week, with a CASE (copy and share everything) of one of the cards in the catalogue. I love how these bright colours make a very cheery Christmas card.
The colours I've used are Lemon Lime Twist, Real Red and Tranquil Tide. These also a tiny bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper as one of the snow banks too.


I was so pleased with this card that I also made a set of coordinating tags, in their own little box.

All of the tags are in the same colour scheme and all use the Merry Mistletoe Stamp Set
To see what the other members of the Art With Heart team have for you, head over to Claire's blog, as she has a full list of participants.
Happy Christmas Stampin,
Rachel
