Welcome to week thirty-one of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!
This week we are showcasing Lost Lagoon, a beautiful soft green that previously was an In Colour but has now joined the Subtles family as a core colour.
These is a stunning specialty paper in the Holiday Catalogue called the Snowflake Magic 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is retiring soon so I really wanted to make a Christmas card with it for this week’s blog.
These Handmade Elements dies are also retiring and work so well with the Snowflake Magic DSP.
The foliage pieces are Lost Lagoon cardstock with Lost Lagoon ink blended over it and then die cut with the Joy of Noel Dies. I’ve also added some silver foil foliage pieces behind the Lost Lagoon.
The Christmas ornament is die cut from silver foil using the Handcrafted Elements dies.
The sentiment is from the Merry & Bright stamp set, stamped in Lost Lagoon.
And the inside of the card has some silver foil too!
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent – I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!

The Christmas countdown continues – it’s 18 weeks today until Christmas Day! Have you started making Christmas cards yet?
This week I was short of time so I’m following the example of my friend, Tina Gillespie, by creating a 20 minute card. It was this beautiful One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP that also inspired the fast and simple card – I just didn’t want to cover it up too much!
The Joy of Noel bundle will be available to purchase from September 3 – it was the large Noel sentiment with matching dies that tipped this bundle into my shopping cart!
I stamped the NOEL in Crumb Cake, die cut it out and used mini dimensionals to adhere the letters to the One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP.
Instead of adding an embellishment for a touch of sparkle, I used a die from the Joy of Noel dies to cut some fronds from the More Dazzle Specialty paper.
I kept the inside of the card simple too, with Crumb Cake stamped sentiments from the Joy of Noel stamp set.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Sharon Davern. I can’t wait to see what Sharon has made this week.
