Heart of Christmas- Week 14

Heart of Christmas 1.jpg
It's Wednesday Christmas inspiration time again. Along with my fellow demonstrators we have lots of fun and amazing Christmas ideas to share with you. Head to Claire's blog to see a full list of participants.

The cards I have for you today use a stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue called Season Like Christmas. This is a two step stamp set, but it's a very forgiving one. Even beginners to stamping and two step stamping will be able to get a great result with this set. 

These cards use the same colours, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Gold. 
On the first card I stamped the trunk first, slightly to the left in Soft Suede. Stamping the trunk first made it easier to line up the main foliage image that was stamped in Pear Pizazz. The second foliage image was stamped in Old Olive.

The ornaments image and the star were stamped in Versamark then embossed in Gold Embossing Powder. The ground under the tree was stamped in Sahara Sand and the greeting in Soft Suede. The beautiful gold edged satin Very Vanilla ribbon adds an extra bit of shimmer and shine to this card.

On the second card I stamped the trunk image 5 times across the card. Then the first foliage image 5 times, followed by the second foliage image 5 times.

The star was stamped 5 times then embossed in gold emboss powder. The greeting was stamped in Soft Suede then punched out with the new Everyday Label punch. The final touches were two rows of 1/8th" gold ribbon around the card and a small piece of ribbon behind the greeting.
I hope you enjoyed this week's Christmas inspiration, don't forgot to hop over to Claire's blog to check out what the other participants have for you.

Not long now until the Holiday Catalogue is live, Sept 1st! Then you can purchase your own supplies and get busy on those Christmas cards.

Happy Stampin,
