Heart of Christmas week 18 - Christmas Season


Hi stampers, it's week 18 of the Heart of Christmas with the Art With Heart team. Every Monday evening until the end Nov we will be sharing our favourite Christmas inspiration with you.
This week I have a super fast card to share with you. I have used the Christmas Season stamp set and used a few stamps around the outside of the card with the greeting in the center.

I stamped the pine needles in Evening Evergreen, the leaves in Old Olive and the holly berries in Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler. The greeting is stamped in Evening Evergreen.

I'm looking forward to replicating this card numerous times to bolster my Christmas card stash.

Now it's time to see what Sharon Davern has to share with us. Sharon is also the host of our beautiful Christmas blog hop so if you have any issues with the links in our hop head over to her blog for a complete list of tonight's participants.

All of the Stampin' Up! products used to make this card are available from my online store, the links are listed below.

Thanks for visiting my blog, if you have any questions please contact me, I'm always happy to discuss stamping :)

Colour Creations Blog Hop week 26 Highland Heather Cup of Tea


Hi Stampers, I'm joining in tonight with the Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team. We're up to week 26 of the blog hops which features Highland Heather, a lovely soft purple in our Subtles colour family.

For tonight's card I have used the Cup of Tea bundle. The cup is cut from Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss card stock and the leaves are cut using the Forever Flourishing Dies and Pear Pizzazz card stock.

To stamp the flowers I first inked in Highland Heather and then added Blackberry Bliss ink with a cotton bud before stamping.

I stamped the greeting from Garden Birdhouses in Highland Heather ink and then fussy cut with paper snips.

Now it's time to head to the next stop in our blog hop, Cathy Proctor, who is also the host of our blog hop.  I 'm sure you will be amazed by her beautiful project.

If you have any problems with the links in our hop please also head to Cathy Proctor's blog as she has a complete list of tonight's participants.

Colour Creations Blog Hop week 23 Gorgeous Grape Perfectly Penciled


Hi stamping friends, after a couple of weeks off I'm back to share my project in the Colour Creations show case. This week the team are featuring Gorgeous Grape, which is a lovely bright, rich purple.

I have used a piece of Perfectly Pencilled DSP that I coloured with my a combination of Gorgeous Grape Stampin' Write pen and Blends Markers. The colours used are Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia and Flirty Flamingo.

I started colouring with Fresh Freesia and Flirty Flamingo Blends and then added more depth with some Gorgeous Grape Stampin' Write Marker. The leaves and stems were coloured with Granny Apple Green Blends Markers.

The greeting is from the very versatile Go To Greetings stamp set and I used one of the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut it out. I added a small amount of Gorgeous Grape Sheer ribbon behind the greeting in a gathered pattern.

Now it's time to see what my team member and talented stamper Rosa Leyden has to share with us.

If you have any issues with the links on this blog hop please head to Cathy  Proctor's blog for a complete list of tonight's participants as she is the host of our Colour Creations Blog Hops.
