Today I am participating in a new weekly blog along with some of the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team.

Every Wednesday morning we will be posting some Christmas card inspiration using products from the new 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, as well as from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (available in September).

“May Your Christmas Sparkle” Card

Because it’s winter here I decided to make a Christmas card that made me feel warm and cosy. I began this card with some smoky slate card stock that I embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic embossing folder.

I just love grey, silver and white together so I used my Pretty Pines thinlits to cut whisper white and silver foil card stock. I wrapped the embossed card stock with some of the new 1/8″ silver and white ribbon–don’t you just adore this ribbon?

Pretty Label Punch, Faceted Gems & Touches of Nature Elements

Three new products that I’ve used here and are so incredibly versatile are the pretty label punch, the touches of nature elements and the faceted gems.

The pretty label punch comes with a matching stamp set (Label Me Pretty) but so many other sentiments from different stamp sets also fit perfectly into it.

This sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set–it is the perfect sentiment for these sparkling faceted gem embellishments!

And the touches of nature elements can be used with either the wood side or the white side (that you can colour with your markers) up–I used the white side for this card.

This card would work in so many different colours and would look equally as beautiful with the gold faceted gems and gold ribbon.

Thanks for stopping bye,

Cathy
