Heart of Christmas - Week 11

Welcome the the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop, week 11.
Today's card features one of the die sets from last Christmas, Detailed Deer. I was very happy to see this set back for another year. I have paired the deer with my favourite DSP from this Christmas, Brightly Gleaming Speciality DSP.

I embossed the deer with the 3D Subtle embossing folder and the oval in the background is embossed with the Stylish Scrolls embossing folder.
The greeting is from Itty Bitty Christmas and is heat embossed in Copper to match the paper and the Copper Foil deer.

The ribbon across the middle of the card is Pretty Peacock and Old Olive Reversible Ribbon.

For more Christmas inspiration head to Tina's blog for a full list of tonight's participants. 

Enjoy the remainder of the blog hop and check back regularly for new inspiration.

Happy stamping,

So Many Stars and Pigment Sprinkles!

I'm back to share with you more of the cards I made with the So Many Stars Bundle. I had a selection of Pigment Sprinkle Backgrounds I did when I was first playing with the Sprinkles and thought they would be perfect with the So Many Stars Dies.

This card uses the Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape and a tiny bit of Bermuda Bay Sprinkles.
I used the same coloured card stock for the stars, also adding Shaded Spruce and Silver Glimmer Paper.

The second card is much darker but also uses Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape Sprinkles. The card stock is also Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape, with a bit a Shaded Spruce as it just seemed to suit the colour scheme.

Now for a couple of lighter coloured cards.

This card uses Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody Sprinkles and card stock, with a garland of  Sparkle Glimmer Paper stars. These cards were so quick and easy to make with the Sprinkles and Star bundle, I'm sure I'll be making many more.

This final card I have to show is a bit different as there were no sprinkles involved.
For this card I used different sheets of the In Colour and Subtles paper packs and the stars bundle.
The 'happy' is Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

Please let me know if you have any questions about my projects,

Happy stamping,

Art With Heart Blog Hop October - Embossing Folders

Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.
Tonight we plan on showing you ideas on how to use these folders.

The card I have for you tonight uses two Embossing Folders, Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. I almost missed the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder as it is in the Holiday Catalogue with the Halloween stamp sets, on page 53. I'm not really into Halloween, but I intend to use this folder for many other projects.

For best results when using the Stampin' Up!'s 3D Embossing Folders; use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate; it adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich to make those 3D designs pop.

The front panel of the card was cut to fit inside one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies which I used to cut the Gold Foil shape. This panel was embossed using the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.

Another piece of card stock, 10x 14.3cm, forms the background of the card and was embossed using the Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The large bauble from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set was heat embossed in Gold embossing powder on Gold Foil. The small bauble and the holly sprig were heat embossed in Gold on Very Vanilla card stock. Both bauble were punched out using the coordinating punches. The holly sprig was coloured using an Aquapainter and was then hand cut.

For the base of the card I used the Very Vanilla Thick card stock as it is less flimsy than the standard Very Vanilla card stock. I cut one A4 piece in half length wise and then scored at 14.8cm and 7.4cm to form a Z fold card.

The card front was then attached to the base.
The greeting was heat embossed in Gold on Very Vanilla card stock, hand cut and attached with Dimensionals.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you enjoyed my card.
