Heart of Christmas - Week 15


The Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue is now live, and I have been super busy making samples for my up coming classes.

Today's cards use the thinlit set Christmas Staircase, which has a co-ordinating stamp set called Ready for Christmas. If you purchase these two items together as a bundle, you save 10%!


Both cards started out the same way, with the tree image stamped in the first case in Pear Pizazz on Very Vanilla and then in Garden green on Whisper White. I added 6 of the larger foliage sprigs to each stamped image, in the coordinating colour to give the trees a realistic texture. The set come with two of these identical dies for faster cutting, very very handy idea!


For the Pear Pizazz tree I stamped the triple ornament image three times and then embossed in Gold Emboss powder to give me 9 ornaments. I only ended up using 7 ornaments. The Merry Christmas greeting is from the Star of Light Stamp set and was also embossed in Gold Emboss Powder. A star die cut from Gold Foil finished this tree. It was then mounted on Pear Pizazz followed by Crumb Cake cardstock.



For the Garden Green tree I die cut 8 ornaments from Gold Foil paper. The red decoration is Red Mini Tinsel Trim, from the Silver and Red combo pack. I cut short pieces of this trim and used the Tombo Glue to attach it to the tree. A star from Gold Glimmer paper finishes this tree. The greeting was stamped in Real Red and then had a small amount of Gold Tread looped behind it to continue the gold theme. This was then mounted on Real Red and Garden Green cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my tree creations today. For more Christmas inspiration head to Tina's blog, as she is hosting today while Claire is away.

Happy Stampin,
Rachel

  3. I love your cards Rachel, your Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake is my favourite of the two. Using the Gold Glimmer star is a perfect contrast to the solid Gold Foil on your Garden Green one. :)

  4. Both of your cards are delightful and it's great to see how the one design can be simply adapted to achieve a variety of looks.

  5. So beautiful! The red tinsel trim looks amazing on the tree. You have more patience than me to cut all of those sprigs - even with the doubled up dies!

  6. Gorgeous, Rachel but my favourite is the tinsel and the gold foil baubles. I think you must have the patience of a Saint to cut and glue each of those sprigs!
