The Heart of Christmas - Handmade Christmas Inspiration 2017 - Week 1



Hi everyone, for todays card I used Tranquil Tide card stock for the base, front of the card is Vanilla Card stock and I ran this through the big shot using Softly Falling Textured folder, I cut 3 Daisy's out with the Daisy Punch using Tranquil Tide & Cherry Cobbler card stock and Vellum, I off centred each Daisy so you can see each colour and curled the petals downward using a bone folder then popped a dimensional under the daisy and used the large Gold Faceted Gem on top.  The Happy sentiment I cut out of Cherry Cobbler card stock using the Happy Birthday Thinlet and just cut them apart and used Tombow liquid glue to adhere to the card.  I glued the Very Vanilla Lace trim on top of the Burlap ribbon for a bit of texture and wrapped around the card sides then added dimensional on the back, the Christmas sentiment which is from the Oh What Fun Stamp set, I used the 'Happy Christmas' stamp and just inked the 'Christmas' with Cherry Cobbler ink pad, the little bells are also from the same set.  I used cherry Cobbler ink pad and Tranquil Tide marker then punched it out using the Label Punch.  The bell I inked with Cherry Cobbler and wiped the inside with a baby wipe and then used the Tranquil Tide marker for inside of bell, cutting the bell out with the Bell Punch and finishing of with a small bow using the Gold 1/8th ribbon.

AWHT Annual Catalogue Sneek Peek 2017

Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team.  We thought it would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017 - 2018 annual catalogue, which is available on the 1st June.  

Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!!!

You have come from the lovely Kimberly HernBlog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken lines.  Now let's get started!

Today I have used the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch.  For the card base I used Crumb Cake,  Petal Burst embossing folder for white card and paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  I punched out 3 daisy's 1. gold foil 2. dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and 3. vellum which I sponged lightly using Powder Pink ink.  Leaves were stamped on garden green card stock and fussy cut.  For the sentiment I embossed it in gold and used the new Pretty Label punch, reminds me of a cloud. On the top part of the card I used 1/8 gold ribbon.

For my second project I used the Popcorn Box Thinlet and decorated it to match the card I filled it with chocolates and tied some 1/8 gold ribbon on the top of the bag.

My second card a shaker which are my favourite to make I used Tranquil Tide for my base and used the Birthday Memories DSP, love this paper.   I cut out the Happy Birthday using the Happy Birthday Thinlet and gold foil ( a must have I think) I cut them so I could use them on the card like this,  For the shaker I used the square stitched framelits added 1/8 gold ribbon and used the Gold Faceted Gems ( love these too I have used them on nearly every project)

For my last project which was so much fun to make is a shaker gift card envelope.  I used the Birthday Memories DSP again.  I used the envelope punch board to make a 3 x 4 envelope.  The little girl and poodle have been embossed using Crumb Cake, I used the new Markers and watercolour pencils to colour in and framed the shaker using the gold 1/8 ribbon.

I made a card to hold the gift card, just a simple stamping of the present on whisper white card stock some more gold ribbon, I added some velcro on the envelope to keep it secure.

This is the inside of the card where I just added a sticky strip to adhere the gift card on.
