Heart of Christmas Week 8

Heart of Christmas Week 8

Welcome to week eight of the 2019 Heart of Christmas blog hop!

This week I’m so excited because I got to play with 3 new products.

Stampin’ Up! have a new trimmer (only available to demonstrators at this stage) and I received mine yesterday. Here’s a sneak peek. I’ll let you know as soon as it becomes available to customers.

The second new product I used was the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks from page 35 of the Holiday catalogue. These masks are only $10 for a set of 4 and they are super versatile. You can use them with embossing paste or as a stencil, like I have today. Here’s a closer look at the 4 patterns you get in the pack.

The third new product I played with was the Snowball Accents puff paint – boy it is fun to play with. It kind of looks like PVA glue when you apply it and then once you heat it with your heat tool it puffs up like magic! As you can see on my card below, I went a bit berserk with it, but how much dimension does it add to my card!

I created my trees by sponging Gray Granite onto Whisper White card stock, using the tree mask. I love the simple graphic linocut effect this gives my card.

Texture and dimension was added with the Snowball Accents puff paint and red Rhinestones, before I adhered Real Red card stock deer die cut using the Detailed Deer thinlits and my “Happy Holidays” sentiment from the Dashing Deer stamp set.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 23 Gray Granite

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 23 Gray Granite

Welcome to week 23 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing a new neutral: Gray Granite.

I must admit, as much as I love crumb cake, gray granite comes a close second. This is a colour that literally goes with everything and it sits somewhere between smoky slate, Sahara sand and crumb cake.

Even though it makes every other colour pop, for my card today I decided to go for a very fresh and clean look, pairing it with just whisper white and champagne foil.

I used a Memories and More whisper white pre-made card as my base, added a layer of champagne foil and then another layer of whisper white embossed with the softly falling textured impression embossing folder.

The beautiful deer are stamped in gray granite onto whisper white using the Dashing Deer stamp set, then cut out with their matching Detailed Deer thinlits.

Don’t you love the pattern on the biggest deer?

The sentiment is from the same Dashing Deer stamp set, stamped in gray granite and the embellishments are die cut out of champagne foil using the detailed deer thinlits. A tiny double bow of linen thread is the final touch.
