The Heart of Christmas - Handmade Christmas Inspiration 2017 - Week 14


Hi everyone and welcome to week 14 of Christmas inspiration with Art with Heart Stampin'Up Team Australia.  For todays card I used Tranquil Tide for the card base.  On the Whisper white mat I stamped a tree from Lovely as a Tree Stamp set in Tranquil Tide and ran that through the big shot using the Gently Falling embosing folder (unfortunately you cant see it in the picture) over the top I layered a piece of vellum and ran that through the big shot using the Holly Embossing folder.   The easel is from Painters Pallete stamp set which is stamped in Tranquil Tide and I used the Red Marker around the border and fussy cut it.  I punched a 1inch circle in whisper white and used the softly falling folder and ran that through the big shot for a bit of texture and glued the Box Wreath around it, I used the Cookie Cutter punch for the the red circles from Red Glitter card stock.  The red ribbon bow and the striped ribbon are from the new holiday catalogue which you may have already seen.  The sentiment is from Christmas Pines set using Real Red ink pad and cut it out using the Layering Squares Framelits. On top of the tree I used one of the stars from  Harts & Stars elements.

And the inside of the card.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks card.  To see more beautiful inspiration from our very talented ladies you can view all our participants on our lovely Team Leader Claire's blog  Have a great week and will see you again next week with some more great cards.

Now let's get started! sit back grab a cuppa and enjoy some gorgeous new holiday ideas. 
I have 2 items today for you the first one is a Christmas desk organiser (Measurements for this are from Crafty caroline in the uk where she does a video tutorial) I am always looking for paper and pen and this is perfect for me and for gift ideas.   I used Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and added a small calendar on the top, the little pad is made from copy paper cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/2" and added a little DSP on the top and glued a red cut out bow with a small Gold Faceted Gem.  The paperclip on the top is a large gold one from office works and attached 2 snowflakes together cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and a small Gold Faceted Gem, handy to attach any small notes to.  Under the calender I added some 1/8th gold ribbon. On the front of the box I added the same gold ribbon, mini gold sequins another snow flake and a Gold Faceted Gem.   
Below is picture of the little note book I made from copy paper.
Below is a side view of the calendar.
 And last picture of the back, I decided to add DSP on all sides to add some extra strength.
For my second project I made a Halloween card using the Spooky Cat Bundle, I love this set as I own 4 cats (wait a minute they own me lol) as soon as I saw this bundle it was the first thing on my list to get.. I actually don't mind Halloween and decorate my house, where I live we get the local kids trick or treating, I put on my witches hat and have my big pumpkin bucket full of sweets for all that come knocking at my door, it's all a bit of harmless fun.  So now onto the card, I used Pumpkin Pie for the base and Black Card stock for my mat and used the Oh My Stars textured Embossing Folder, the window I cut out of Pumpkin Pie Card stock using the Hearth & Home Thinlet and sponged the edges in Pumpkin Pie.  I finished the card of with Wink of Clear Stella and Black gems around the window.
And a picture of the inside of the card.

The Heart of Christmas - Handmade Christmas Inspiration 2017 - Week 13

Hi everyone and welcome to week 13 of Christmas inspiration with Art with Heart Stampin'Up Team Australia.  For todays card I chose to make a step card using Cherry Cobbler as my base.  I did mostly fussy cutting which I don't normally but it wasn't too painful lol.   I used Christmas Around the World DSP and fussy cut all the elements. Dazzling Diamonds for the snow.  I sponged Marina Mist and Night of Navy for the two front panels.  The sentiment is from the Merry Little Labels Stamp set, I used a Cherry Cobbler marker and just highlighted 'Let it Snow' and used the smallest of Lots of Labels framelits and backed it with Champagne Foil and finished of with clear Wink of Stella.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks card.  To see more beautiful inspiration from our very talented ladies you can view all our participants on our lovely Team Leader  Claire's blog. Have a great week and will see you again next week with some more great cards.
